Editorial Reviews

(Sports) Some of the greatest wrestling superstars come from rich family traditions. The Rock (Rocky Johnson, The wild Samoans, the great Peter Mavia) Texas wrestling is largely defined by the Von Erich family, as well as the Funks, whose father Dory Sr. raised two future world champs, Dory Jr. and Terry. Canada considers the Hart family (Bret Hart, Owen Hart, British Bulldog, Jim the Anvil Neidhart) wrestling royalty. Great Families of Wrestling will examine these families, as well as the Guerreros, Ortons, Gagnes, Colons, DiBiases, Rhodes, Lawlers, and more. The DVD will explore the rich legacies these families have created in sports entertainment, and define their lasting impact. Fathers, sons, brothers, and grandsons will all be covered, including both relationships and connections acknowledged and long held secret.

This is one of those WWE documentries just like the "Greatest 80's Stars" or "World's Greatest Managers" where a certain wrestlers (or in this case, families) are selected and their history in the business is profiled. Carlito host this DVD which is a big welcome compared to Todd Grisham. And eventhough the Hennig name is on the cover, they are not profiled.

Here are some highlights from the stories told on this DVD:
The Ortons - This just really showcases how each man came into the business.

The Guerreros - Gory Guerrero's reputation in Mexico & being a promoter. All the family's jobs within the business & the lucha libre style from Mexico they brought into the United States. The Los Guerreros tag team title run in WWE along with Eddie becoming the WWE Champion before passing away.

The McMahons - Jess McMahon promoting boxing & being disowned by his father. Vince McMahon Sr.'s moving wrestling into Madison Square Garden. How Vince Jr. took over the business. Stephanie & Shane growing up around the business. Stephanie's marriage with Triple H.

The Windhams - How Big Bob Windham transformed into Blackjack Mulligan. How Barry Windham got into the business though being a boxer and started teaming up with Mike Rotundo...who would eventually marry Barry's sister.

The Grahams - How tag team of the Graham Brothers weren't related. Eddie's creating Championship Wrestling from Flordia. How Superstar Billy Graham used the Graham name to get himself over.
This should have been in the "questionable family ties" section since none of them except Eddie & his son, Mike were related and Mike didn't really do anything special in this business to make this a powerful family.

THE MOST POWERFUL FAMILIES IN WRESTLING

This was a set released that took a look at some of the famous families of wrestling. The documentary like feature on the first disc is cool and is hosted by Carlito. There are some families that are left out that should have been there but overall it is a good release. In this set you get profiles on the Orton's, Guerrero's, McMahon's, Windam's, Graham's, Anoai's, Gagne's, The Hart's, Vachon's, Colon's, the Von Erich's, Rougeau's, Funk's, Brisco's and the Maivia/Johnson family. You may notice that the Rhodes family is not there but at least we get a match from them on disc 2. The matches are as follows.

MATCHES

1.PETER MAIVIA & JAY STRONGBOW VS ALI BABA & BARON MIKEL SCICLUNA-now I know you know about The Rock's Grandfather. Here we have him and Jay Strongbow working together in a tag match that starts with a little musical number, you can see where Rock gets it. This match was all Maivia and Strongbow and you can tell they were having a good time in there. Of course with this set you know they get the victory in a good entertaining match.

2.[AWA TITLE]CURT HENNING VS GREG GAGNE-Greg was going against "Cool" Curt Henning as they called him in this one. This one starts a little into the match but that is ok. We get most of the match and it is a fun one. The style they each had complimented the other and this one goes from wrestling to brawl and back again. In the end Daddy Gagne helps his boy get the win and the belt.

3.THE FABULOUS ROUGEAU BROTHERS VS THE BUSHWHACKERS-I love the music even still to this day of the Rougeau's man, that song cracks me up. And of course who didn't love the Bushwhackers in their WWF days, of course these guys were killers prior to these days.
