Hogan &Warrior Vs The Undertaker, Sgt. Slaughter & General Adnan is a tremendously fun tag team match too. And for the record I'd call Hogan a good worker. Plus I think his selling is somewhat underrated. Once he makes his comeback and goes all "superman" then yeah, he ignores shit, but prior to that part of the match he's always been good at selling beatings from his opponents.
Just finished watching the NWA documentary that I posted in my Sig (available to download on XWT btw, and currently freeleech I think?). Around 2 and a half hours, with the last 20 being "extras" with guys telling some stories they heard from the past and their memories of watching as a kid, then a match between Pierce and... someone.
Anywho, overall its a pretty good documentary. They got plenty of footage of matches and shit from whoever owns their own recording and whatnot, and even got some shoot interview footage from Highspots, RF Video and a couple of others so we do get the likes of Flair, Funks, Briscos etc talking about certain people and matches which is cool, and was probably cheaper for them to get the video footage than it was to pay some of the guys to be on the DVD. Really good in depth look at most of the NWA champs from the beginning up to Flair in the 80's, then after that they just mention a bunch of guys in passing before getting to Shane Douglas and they talk about the ECW thing, then from there bits and pieces, then the WWF being invaded in the late 90's, then TNA using the belt. And then they spend about 20-25 minutes talking about the current NWA... and it goes downhill lol. Just because its sad to see where the NWA is now, and the fact that the wrestlers and people involved still try to make us believe that the NWA and the title actually mean something any more. Lets face it, the NWA title hasn't meant SHIT since JCP was sold to Turner and it was turned into WCW and they got rid of the NWA belt and had a WCW belt. Since then WCW and WWF were the only promotions that meant anything. ECW on a smaller scale too, but they shat on the NWA title and had their own so the NWA title had to resort to floating around the dying territories/indy promotions until TNA picked it up in 02 then gave it up and it went back to the Indies which had fallen even further. Doesn't help that they talk about how the belt still means something and then show someone winning it in a decent sized arena where ALL the seats are empty and you can see MAYBE 40 people folding chairs around the ringside area. I guess they were trying to promote the current NWA by giving it so much time at the end and really talking it up, but you can't take them seriously when they show clips like that. But at least they actually have footage of a guy saying that the NWA should just go away now because its nothing, you really don't get the other side of things like that in WWE documentaries.
Nice to see a big independent documentary like this. Big fan of the WCCW and Memphis ones, and I'm looking forward to the ECW one that is currently on kickstarter looking to get funding (though there are 9 days left and they still need like, $9000 so its unlikely to happen. Kinda funny that the epic ECW promotion that sooo many fans think is incredible can barely make $23000 while little old Nigel McGuinness, just a single guy, made over $48000
). Isn't there already an independent ECW doc out there anyway? I seem to recall Jeremy Borash being involved?
