Overall, very stacked set. I have the 2 dvds Mid-South put out before selling there catalog to WWE & it's same of the best wrestling around. I cannot wait for this set, WWE is going all out this year.

If you grew up watching Mid-South, you've been waiting nearly 30 years for this. If you've never seen Mid-South, but grew up in the Hulkamania era, you need to watch this for historical appreciation. If you're a newer fan, this is just a great look at a different time in wrestling. This collection is fantastic, a top to bottom excellent compilation highlighting the stars of the day, the matches that made them, and a nice perspective of how Mid-South helped to create many of the stars we know and love.

A great, great release.

Having spent years watching and going to Mid-South shows in New Orleans I was excited to see this material get released. If you never watched Mid-South this is a great introduction to the territory, but it focuses on the wrestlers who later became famous in the WWE (WWF then). I was hoping to see stars like Eddie Gilbert, John Tatum, Rock N Roll Express, Sheep Herders, Dr. Death Steve Williams and others who to me, were Mid-South. For those who never saw Mid-South they did great storytelling that was well thought out over a long time and mixed great wrestling with ECW style violence. (It was very big influence in what ECW became I would argue). Over all a nice introduction to the promotion but too WWE star heavy for my taste.

As a young child growing up watching Mid-South Wrestling, this brought back many happy memories of waking up on Saturday mornings and watching my favorite wrestlers like Ted Dibiase (before his Million Dollar days), Terry Taylor, Magum TA, and the Rock n Roll Express. Highly recommend if you watched 30 years ago!!

I loved and miss the Mid South days. Junkyard Dog, Skandor Akbar and Devastation Inc., Ernie Ladd, Hacksaw Duggan, Cowboy Bill Watts, Ted DiBiase before he became the Million Dollar Man. Freebirds, One Man Gang, Col.Buck Robley, Butch Reed,Dick Murdock, appearances and matches featuring legends Andre The Giant, Dusty Rhodes and Ric Flair. I use to love going to see Mid South Wrestling in person . In this DVD I can go back in time and relive some of some of the great days of wrestling.

This is a great retrospective on Mid-South ... when wrestling was good & fun ... not the junk that the WWE puts out now ... on this set, having Dusty Rhodes be the in between match narrator was a smart move ... he was there, and knows the back-stories ... all 3 CDs held my interest ... wish it was 5CDs ... maybe they'll do a Part-2 !!

I totally love this set. Only complaint is it did NOT have an actual documentary telling the history of Mid-South/UWF history. I would have liked to hear Bill Watts talk more about it, as well as Ted DiBiase and others.

This is the kind of wrestling I grew up with. Unfortunately when I was little I did not get this territory where I lived until it became UWF, so the footage of early mid-south was a real treat. Loved the Ghetto Street fight between JYD and Hacksaw Butch Reed. Recommend the blu ray version for the extra footage. Match between Jim Duggan and Buzz Sawyer is a classic among the extra footage. See footage that had to inspire later ECW. I know everyone is going to have a match that they think should have been included, but how the Sheepherders versus The Fantastics in a barbed wire cage match from the UWF period is not on here is beyond me

This is by far the best match selection DVD, a documentary mixed in between the matches, very well done on this 3 disk dvd, WWE should do there match DVDs like this or in the same format as Shawn Michaels My Journey & Rey Mysterio The Life of a Mask Man, I learned a lot about Mid South after watching this dvd, GREAT PURCHASE!
