I assume 1960 - 1983 will take up about 15 minutes of the 3 hour doc.

I agree Piper, Savage, Graham, and Backlund should have made the cut.  The thing is many that you guys would replace to include them appeal to the folks WWE wants buying these sets.  Like it or not WWE is under the impression that classic stuff does not sell well.  I think they included many that they did thinking that some younger person will recognize them and feel more inclined to buy the set.  They don't make these sets for fans like us.

It's a 3 disc set meaning the case is likely a trifold. I'm sure all the names mentioned will be on on of the 5 other flats

Documentary will be interesting.  None of the oldschool matches are rare, but I guess that can be expected.  Pass on this set. 

Still waiting for a Best of Jimmy Snuka set with some never released matches.  Might be waiting my whole life, it seems.

Tragedy in Kansas City

I am kind of shocked that this is a topic.

Seems like the way to go on most of these releases is to wait for it on Netflix. They air the best part, the documentary.

I'm looking for some handheld footage of the Jimmy Snuka - Nancy Argentino match. Well, me and the Allentown PD.

The match listing is a big disappointment, like the MSG set. I don't care if Koko vs. Yoko was on the first Raw, or Jake vs Austin was the birth of 3:16. You can show some of the footage on the documentary... instead of those two matches we need one featuring the Champ, Bob Backlund.

After reading the topic list for the Doc, looks like I got it about right. :(

I'll probably get it and enjoy it.  But then again, I'm a mark.
