I just got a few discs of this and it's great. Some highlights are

Ole Anderson and Stan Hansen are faces! They're also teaming with Tommy Rich.

Buzz Sawyer has hair and is also a face and wrestled to a draw in a clean match with Bret Hart who was there from Oct-Dec.

Hulk Hogan is offering $1000 to anyone who can get out of his Sterling Squeeze bearhug.

Bobby Heenan is there with his Georgia version of the Heenan Family which consists of Ernie Ladd,Masked Superstar,and Killer Karl Kox and they're feuding with Anderson,Hansen,and Rich.

Austin Idol is there and he says Idolmania is running wild.(seriously)

Bob Backlund brought the WWF title with him did an interview and wrestled someone by the name of Gearld Finley.

Harley Race is the NWA world champion and he made threats to Tommy Rich and Tony Atlas.

Very entertaining stuff.

Hogan wrestled Hansen at the Omni sometime in 79-80 and i'm pretty sure that Hansen did the job to Hogan.

I remember Gerald Finley being a mid-'80s Crockett jobber every week.

That is good stuff. He isn't even "Hulk Hogan" yet at that time. He is "Sterling Golden".

There's another guy in the Heenan family named Shaft. I think he was an ex-NFL player.

I enjoyed that footage too.  I loved GCW and used to watch it every week on TV.

Ton "Boogaloo" Shaft IIRC. 

And they had the nerve to tag up Kox and Shaft on occasion.  Not only that, Atlas does an interviewand canb't seem to get the X on Kox to not sound like a K when saying "Gimme that Kox cause I like that Kox."

Seriously...have the same set of footage.
