  1. The collection is nice but once again the WWE screwed up. Where is Ric Flair VS. Ronnie Garvin, Starcade 1987. One of the greatest matches of all time.
    Rating: 4 / 5

  2. Sting nevered worked for Vince and his face represents the forefront of the cover. I am sure he had to have Sting’s permission before putting his picture on the cover.

  3. Nwa/Wcw has had many legendary matches through Starrcade that would have made this collection essential. Some examples would be Garvin Verses Flair, Abdulah The Butcher verses Manny Fernandez as well as other matches from its storied past would have made this collection more enjoyable. Although I am greatful for this dvd being created, I just wish that they would have considered adding more legendary matches to this collection. I will end up buying the dvd because I love the old Nwa/Wcw days, but judging off of the list of matches in a previous review, I think that the match selection could have been better. Overall, this collection is okay for me, but could have chosen more legendary matches to add in this collection.

  4. Its about time Vince put together a dvd set for just nwa/wcw. There is not much left to say that others have already talked about in reviews. The only prob. I have with the set is the main doc. I find it to be kind of short and it skiped around alittle, all the matches are great.

  5. All of these matches were shown on WWE 24/7 recently, and to be honest, I’m disappointed in the matches that were selected. If you ever saw Starrcade ’86, then you ought to be scratching your head wondering why the cage match between the Andersons and the Rock & Roll Express wasn’t included in this collection (easily an all-time top 5 Starrcade match). Also, Rick Steamboat vs. Tully Blanchard from Starrcade ’84 was another great match, and that wasn’t included in this collection, which is beyond me why it wasn’t included. I think the best Starrcade match collection that was ever put together was the “Best of Starrcade” VHS release back in 1988 that included matches from the first five Starrcades.
