5.0 out of 5 stars The unexpected MUST OWN wrestling DVD release of the Year! Feb. 4 2009
By Movie Fan - Published on Amazon.com
When I saw this set debut here on Amazon weeks before it's release, I was intrigued since WWE 24/7 is not available in my area, but I actually thought that someone had hacked Amazon and posted a fake cover for this set. Buff Bagwell on a WWE DVD cover?! However, that is the real cover (actually the slipcase). However, don't let the uninspired cover art fool you, this is one of the must own WWE DVD releases of the year for the following reasons...

First, each roundtable discussion is only 1 hour in length, that leaves nearly 2.5 hours of room left over on each disc, that is filled with bonus matches, many of which are making their DVD debut and are matches fans have wanted to see released for years. I wont list them all, but some of the matches you'll get are...

Ric Flair and Sting vs. Terry Funk and The Great Muta - Thunderdome Match from Halloween Havoc '89

Ric Flair vs. Curt Hennig - Nitro '99

NWA United States Championship: Lex Luger vs. Michael Hayes - Wrestlewar '89

Loser Leaves NWA: The Midnight Express vs. The Original Midnight Express - Chi-Town Rumble '89

NWA Tag Team Title: Lex Luger and Barry Windham vs. Tully Blanchard and Arn Anderson - Clash of Champions '88

Junkyard Dog vs. Randy "Macho Man" Savage - The Wrestling Classic Tournament Finals '85

Jerry Lawler vs. Bret Hart - "Kiss My Foot Match" King of the Ring '95

Jerry Lawler vs. Bret Hart - In Your House '95

So, there's much more on these 3-discs than just roundtable discussions, which I think is great!
As for the roundtable discussions, some people will not like them because if you have just an hour and you spend thirty minutes on each wrestler, needless to say you can barely scratch the surface of each man's career. With that said, I wasn't looking for in-depth discussion. Instead, the discussions play out like a group of friends getting together and simply reminiscing and telling fun stories about pro-wrestling. If you enjoy talking about wrestling with your friends, then imagine the same thing, but from the point of view of those inside the business. The most insightful discussion was the "Heatseeker" episode. The panel, that consists of Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler, Mick Foley, Eric Bischoff and Michael Hayes, told the best stories of the entire DVD set. I also heard stories and info that I had never heard anywhere else. So, the discussions are entertaining, but don't look for a serious education of the wrestling business or it's history.

***NOTE: The following is NOT included on this set - read on***
Also, if you enjoy this 3-disc set, Best Buy has 3 other DVDs from the Legends of Wrestling series you can only get from them! They include:
1. Hulk Hogan and Bob Backlund
2. Andre the Giant and the Iron Sheik
3. Rowdy Roddy Piper and Terry Funk (this is a must buy)
Some of the bonus matches you'll find on these included:

WWE Title match: Andre the Giant vs. Randy "Macho Man" Savage from MSG '88

Andre the Giant vs. King Kong Bundy '85

Terry Funk vs. Ricky Steamboat - Clash of the Champions '89

Terry Funk vs. Tully Blanchard - Slamboree '94 - this is a wild ECW style brawl!

Terry Funk vs. The Junkyard Dog - Saturday Night's Main Event '85

Roddy Piper vs. Paul Orndorff (this is NOT their short match from Saturday Night's Main Event, it's from Boston Garden)

Piper's Pit where Roddy interviews... himself!

Overall, these Legends of Wrestling DVDs are must buys for any wrestling fan thanks to the 2+ hours worth of rare bonus matches that are included on each DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Legends Of The Roundtable Dec 23 2008
By D.P. - Published on Amazon.com
For those who don't already know, the "Legends Of Wrestling" program is a program on WWE 24/7 On Demand channel that's a roundtable discussion featuring wrestling stars of the past speaking on various subjects. 2 out of 3 of these disc (and the other 3 bonus disc) contains the entire first season of the show which the subject was wrestling stars of the 1980's featuring Dusty Rhodes, Jim Ross, Pat Patterson, Michael Hayes, and Mike Graham. The "Heatseekers" disc is from the second season containing a panel of Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler, Michael Hayes, Mick Foley, and Eric Bischoff. Throughout each discussion, you'll hear various personal & behind the scenes stories of each individual mentioned along with rare video highlights & pictures to showcase the point being put across. On each disc, you'll get a set of bonus matches with most of them not ever being released on DVD before or even seen on national television before either...with Jesse Ventura's commentry not removed from the matches.

Ric Flair & Sgt. Slaughter: Flair's revolved around how he lived his gimmick, was able to make stars including a certain one that Michael Hayes himself said that he "would never forgive Flair for", the difference between himself & Hulk Hogan as the two dominate World Champions of the 1980's, along with stories about his history Dusty Rhodes & Dick Murdock. Sgt. Slaughter's discussion featured stories & discussions of how Pat Patterson brought him in, how great of a character & real man he is, the infamous "Iraq" heel run he had, the issues regarding his sudden WWE departure in 1984, and his importance as a backstage agent.
Bonus material in regards to Slaughter include a Mid-Atlantic match vs. Mike Rotundo (later known as I.R.S.), Texas Death Match vs. WWE Champion Bob Backlund, vs. Iron Sheik, Boot Camp Match vs. Col. BeBeers from AWA SuperClash III '88. Flair's bonus material includes his Starrcade '88 match vs. Lex Luger, vs. Curt Hennig from Nitro in Oct. '99, and the Thunderdome Cage match from Halloween Havoc '89 with Sting vs. Terry Funk & Great Muta.

Jerry Lawler & Junkyard Dog: The panel's discussion regarding Lawler mostly revolved around his ability to remain the top star in the Memphis territory, Andy Kaufman, being able to "talk fans into the arena", and his successful transition into being a color commentator. Junkyard Dog's discussion turned out to be one of the best ones on this entire set as you hear them heavily talk about him breaking down racial barrier in not only wrestling but sports period, what made him appeal to all audiences, with the highlight being the story behind the infamous "blind JYD" angle with the Freebirds that resulted in so much heat that Michael Hayes said it himself that, "I've never felt my life more threatened than in that era."
Lawler's extras include a tag match with Jimmy Valiant vs. Michael Hayes & Kerry Von Erich, vs. Owen Hart, his "trainwreck" of a match with Roddy Piper from King Of The Ring '94, two matches with Bret Hart from the first In Your House in 1995 & the "Kiss My Foot" match from King Of The Ring the next month, and vs. Marty Garner. JYD's bonus matches include a tag match with Sgt. Slaughter vs. Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff, his WrestleMania matches vs. Greg Valentine & Harley Race, the Wrestling Classic tournament final vs. Randy Savage, two Saturday Night's Main Event matches vs. Adrian Adonis & Harley Race.

Heatseekers: This episode is based around wrestlers who caused the most backstage problems with either management or the talent themselves. The first name brought up was Michael Hayes himself & the Freebirds with Lawler telling a story that would becomine a running joke throughout the show. Lex Luger's attitude that rubbed so many people the wrong way, the Bill Goldberg theory of how he was "a nice guy AWAY from the business", the story behind Lawler breaking Paul Heyman's jaw on purpose, the backstage troubles of Scott Hall were also discussed along with Jim Ross' story regarding a phone call he recieved from Buff Bagwell's mother. Another subject that was heavily debated was the mean spirited paraodies in wrestling with Vince Russo's personal attack on Jim Ross with "Oklahoma", the nWo's mockery of Arn Anderson's retirement speech (and the irony behind that almost decade later), and Vince McMahon's "Dr. Hiney".
The bonus matches here include the Freebirds WWE debut alongside David Wolfe & Cyndi Lauper, Luger & Windham vs. NWA Tag Team Champions Anderson & Blanchard from the first Clash Of The Champions, the "Loser Leaves NWA" match between Jim Cornette & Midnight Express vs. Paul E. Dangerously & the Original Midnight Express from Chi-Town Rumble '89 along with the hysterical interviews done on TV the week before, NWA U.S. Champion Lex Luger vs. Michael Hayes from WrestleWar '89, WCW U.S. Champion Goldberg vs. Scott Hall from Nitro in July '97, Scott Hall vs. Kevin Nash from Halloween Havoc '98, the cage match where Vince Russo won the WCW Championship from Booker T (yes, you read that right), and a boxing match between Buff Bagwell & Roddy Piper from WCW Bash At The Beach '99. For those fans of wrestling who didn't start turning in until past the late 80's, this is the disc that would appeal the most to you the most.

Best Buy Bonus Disc-
Bob Backlund & Hulk Hogan: The panel here covered the critism regarding Backlund's charisma & personality, his ability to work out & stay in shape...to this day at his age, the reasoning & setup behind his title reign, the role of his manager, why he left WWE after losing the title, and the reason why he's not in the WWE Hall Of Fame. Hulkster's discussion talked about his introduction to the wrestling business, charisma, time in AWA, effects of Hulkamania & impact of Rocky III, if he has overstayed his welcome, an interesting debate comparing him to Dusty Rhodes himself, and who made whom: WWE or Hogan.
Bob Backlund's bonus matches include matches against title matches against Spiros Arion, Buddy Rose, and his cage match against Jimmy Snuka. The bonus matches for Hulk Hogan include an AWA tag match with the High Flyers vs. Jesse Ventura & Bobby Heenan & Ken Patera, another AWA tag match with Andre The Giant vs. Bobby Heenan & Bobby Duncum & Nick Bockwinkle & Ken Patera, and a Saturday Night's Main Event match vs. Harley Race.

Iron Sheik & Andre The Giant: This discussion was based more about the panels personal (and most times, hysterical) stories of the wrestlers themselves than various topics.
For those who didn't catch it, the Iron Sheik's famous Hall Of Fame speech is shown here before getting into the discussion with the highlights being Michael Hayes talking about the time Sheik failed a drug test & a roadtrip he took with Sheik & Jimmy Garvin & "Mary Jane" while subjects like his backstory & elements of his character was talked about. Andre The Giant's discussion was very similar with stories of being a giant, his drinking, and one about what happened when Pat Patterson roomed with Andre one time that you have to hear to believe before going into his heavy involvement with WrestleMania III and his relationship with wrestlers that he did & didn't like.
Bonus matches here for the Iron Sheik include a match vs. Tito Santana, vs. Bob Backlund (not the title switch), two matches with Nikolai Volkoff vs. U.S. Express including their WrestleMania match. Andre's matches include one vs. Hulk Hogan from 1980, vs. King Kong Bundy, vs. Randy Savage, and a tag match with Rocky Johnson vs. Don Muraco & Big John Studd.

Roddy Piper & Terry Funk: Piper's discussion slightly makes up for the lack of NWA talk on his DVD but not much as they did discuss his role as a color commentator right besides Gordon Solie, his Starrcade '83 match, his promo ability, being able to cross over as a successful actor, and his wrestling ability. Funk's discussion started off with a typical "well, that's Terry Funk" story about the 4th of July & hand gernades along with Dusty telling a story about a recent match they had that was so crazy that Dusty didn't even want to say the town's name, his family history, and the politics behind his NWA reign amongst other things. Unfortunally, this is one of the flops discussion wise because they started getting off subject of Funk & discussing other wrestling related items.
Bonus matches here featuring Roddy Piper include the lost Piper's Pit where Roddy interviews himself (CLASSIC PIPER!!!), his amateur wrestling match with Ric Flair, a crazy brawl vs. Paul Orndorff, two Saturday Night's Main Event matches against Bob Orton & Haku, his steel cage match vs. Rick Rude, an entertaining match vs. Intercontinental Champion Mr. Perfect. Terry Funk's bonus material includes his Saturday Night's Main Event match vs. Junkyard Dog, the "I Quit" match vs. Ric Flair along with the prematch interviews from both men, his "Clash Of The Champions" match vs. Ricky Steamboat, and his "legends match" vs. Tully Blanchard from Slamboree '94 which had some faces that hardcore ECW fans would recognize (as Terry did before the match) in the front row.

Overall this collection is certainly for the old school wrestling fans of the 1980's with the Heatseekers episode being the one disc that would appeal to the wrestling fans of the 1990's. Overall, I recommend since this is the closest we'll get to DVD releases/matches on some of these wrestlers.

I love the show, but, through nobody's fault but my own, I was under the impression that this was a dvd set of the entire series. It was only three episodes filled with loads of old school matches. It's not bad, just not what I thought it was when i purchased it.

I liked every topic discussed except for the Heat Seekers section. They didn't go into detail on the wrestling talent that was hard to deal with. Every time a wrestler was brought up to mention someone at the round table cut the other person off from finishing their story about Buff Bagwell, Jerry Lawler, Lex Luger, etc. Overall this was a good DVD. I like hearing inside stories, so if you're into the behind the scenes type atmosphere of the business, I would totally recommend this. It's not expensive and there's a lot of matches on this set also. I apologize for not going to much into detail like other postings, I just sum it up quick.
