Fine video documentary on pro wrestling

"Well-done video presentation. If you are a wrestling fan from "'way back," you will absolutely love this DVD, especially when it starts describing pro wrestling from the 1940's up to the present."
Fun and unique, but really only a must for hardcore fans....
Christopher Jones | Tampa | 11/06/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Glory Days of Wrestling is an odd mixture of matches, movie shorts, and other oddities that wrestling offers from years gone by. It's certainly fun to see how things were done 40 years ago, and this DVD collection has all kinds of stars from yesteryear (Haystacks Calhoun, Gorgeous George, Verne Gagne, etc...). Plus, you really haven't lived until you see a 1970s midget woman's wrestling match.

Having said that, this is not going to appeal to everybody. The matches themselves are all old school, and will probably not be enjoyed by modern day WWE/TNA fans (low production values, the women are not walking barbie dolls, and little high flying action). However, if you are a die hard wrestling nut (or a person who remembers these guys fighting) - check it out.

By the way, I'm not sure what the one review was talking about when it describes a documentary - there is nothing like that on here.
