Editorial Reviews

Curt Hennig was just like his wrestling nickname, "perfect" in every aspect of his wrestling style. He got his start in a wrestling family with his father Larry the Axe Hennig, went through Verne Gagne s training camp, and gained experience in the AWA, reaching the pinnacle as the AWA Heavyweight Champion. But Curt Hennig s biggest spotlight would shine in WWE, when he became Mr. Perfect, a two-time Intercontinental Champion and 2007 inductee in the WWE Hall of Fame.

Curt Hennig is one of those people in wrestling who never had a major promotional machine behind himm (Hulk Hogan), wasn't always put in a position to be the top draw of the company (Ric Flair), or even the most popular wrestler (Sting) but was always over with the fans as either a face or heel, had some of the biggest respect & love from the wrestling industry today, and as without a doubt on of a kind weather he was in the ring wrestling or pulling a classic prank outside of it to the point where Michael Hayes at one time called him wrestling's version of "Dennis The Menace." The name given to him in the WWE just describes him at whatever he did in the wrestling business, PERFECT!

The documentry stars off talking about Hennig growing up, how he started wrestling young, and hung around his father (Larry "The Ax" Hennig) when he was training with Verne Gagne before meeting his future wife in high school. How Curt started wrestling for Vince Sr. before moving onto the AWA to team with his dad & Scott Hall (if you haven't seen him outside of his "Razor Ramon/nWo" look then you'll be suprized) was discussed before his feud with Nick Bockwinkel & becoming AWA Champion. How the feud between Curt & Greg Gagne spilled into a family feud with their fathers getting involved before losing the AWA Title to Jerry Lawler & leaving was brought up next. How he got the name Mr. Perfect & the truth behind the "Absolutely Perfect" sport skits was talked about with hysterical footage to go with the story before Wade Boggs tells a story of how Hennig saved his life. Curt's Intercontinental title reign was heavily talked about in terms of how he elevated the championship along with the SummerSlam match with Bret Hart.

There aren't anywhere near enough matches on here. I really hope this set isnt the last word on Mr. Perfect because I'd love to see WWE put together a set similar to what they did for Bret Hart and Ultimate Warrior. There are a ton of great matches that they didnt include here including his other great matches vs. The Texas Tornado (win or lose), his IC match vs. Ultimate Warrior, his IC tournament finals match vs. Tito Santana (or the subsequent rematch from Saturday Nights Main Event), his Loser leaves Raw match vs. Ric Flair, His Battle Royale win at Saturday Nights Main Event, just to name a handful. There are also a bunch of great matches vs. mid-carders like Hercules, Rugged Ronnie Garvin, Red Rooster, Jimmy Snuka, Tugboat, The Blue Blazer, Brutus Beefcake, etc, and all of this from his original run in the WWF that would be fantastic filler to push this to a 3-disc set.

Mr. Perfect helped to lay the foundation for the glamourization of the Intercontinental Championship and make it more than just a minor title. It became a counterpart to the World championship; an equal, and paved the way for great IC champs like Rowdy Roddy Piper, Bret Hart, British Bulldog, Jeff Jarrett, Razor Ramon, Shawn Michaels, Owen Hart, Triple H, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, etc., etc.

Along with Bret Hart, Mr. Perfect was the greatest "technician" of the late 1980's to early 1990's and is one of the major reasons I'm such a huge fan of wrestling (at least old school wrestling) to this day and he definitely deserves the same treatment as Bret Hart and Ultimate Warrior and should get a deluxe 3-disc set with more matches on them.

I did appreciate seeing the "Abolutely Perfect" viginettes on this DVD. Those are still priceless.

Some may wonder why WWE decided to release a DVD featuring Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig, but I welcome it. I wish WWE would release more DVDs like this. Not every feature star needs to be a main event legend to get his own DVD in my opinion.
This release features one of the best documentaries WWE has produced on any wrestler. It's very informative, entertaining and moves at a fast pace. The story of Curt Hennig is told by his family, friends and his fellow wrestlers. All of Curt's career highlights are featured and those who only know him as Mr. Perfect from his debut in the WWF in the late eighties, will get to see all of Curt's prior accomplishments in wrestling before becoming Mr. Perfect, and there are a lot of them! For example, Curt was the AWA World Heavyweight Champion before his stint in the WWF, and this is talked about in great detail.

Most are complaining about the match selection, and with good reason. There are some good ones in this set, but not many. I was shocked when WWE decided to include the classic one-hour draw AWA World Heavyweight Championship match between Hennig and champion Nick Bockwinkel from Nov. of 1986. This is pro-wrestling at it's best, with the last 10 minutes being just as good, or better, than any championship match you'll see today. Both men bleed and push each other to the limit. One thing to look for, is when Bockwinkel blades, there is a fan near the front row, who excitedly pantomimes Bockwinkel blading to his friends, letting them know how smart he is to the business. When Bockwinkel places the blade back into his wrist tape, this same fan also pantomimes this to his friends too. It's pretty funny to see.
