For the first time ever, the complete story of World Championship Wrestling, from Ted Turner’s purchase and entry into the world of professional wrestling, through the Monday night wars, and the company’s eventual collapse.

The Rise and Fall of WCW does well to explain the different people who were in charge of running Mid-Atlantic to the top of the NWA into what became WCW. I think it loses steam as the documentary goes along because you can began to tell where pieces from other DVDs about WCW have been plugged in and where information about certain wrestlers and matches should have been plugged in to help the causal fan understand the connection between the created wrestling story line and the backstage politics that caused momentous changes and mistakes. In comparison, I felt that the other titles mentioned above did a much better job of linking the two.
If you are a fan looking to relive some of the most memorable moments of NWA/WCW, I would not recommend this DVD set and suggest you look into titles about specific wrestlers or title belts because they also fit in a good timeline of where NWA/WCW was at but give a lot more content you are looking for. I was also disappointed in some of the match selections that seemed random instead of being representative of where NWA/WCW was at the time the match took place.
