"THIS IS A MUST HAVE FOR ALL VONERICH FANS!
Finally a dvd dedicated to the best wrestling family ever! This dvd is something I can watch over and over. The matches are some of their best including the famous match at Texas Stadium where Kevin was taken out
by ambulance after getting hit with a chair by Chris Adams. The dvd also has a tour of the VonErich ranch and has Kevin telling stories of his wrestling days. The outtakes are hilarious. Kevin and David Manning do great commentary for the matches and they also do the introduction and
at the end announce that there will be more dvds to follow! There is also
a photo album that shows pictures of all the brothers. On the special features there is also a biography written on each of their brothers that was very interesting to read. I was surprised at how good the quality of the picture is,
its crystal clear. I definitely recommend this dvd to any wrestling fan, it is the best vintage wrestling dvd I have ever watched. It definitely brought back many memories.

"After listening to Kevin talk about it at various conventions, the DVD has finally been released. No more buying a copy of a copy of a copy vhs tape from ebay or waiting for an old rerun on cable or some clips off the web, one can sit back and relive the good ole days of wrestling before the "Mr. Mac-Mannnn" era.
For true wrestling fans, this is a must buy. Esp for the young ones who need to learn what wrestling used to be."
Von Erichs; The good old days

"It's finally here. I'm so glad Kevin has gotten around to putting this out. Growing up in the D/FW metroplex I was fortunate enough to attend tons of the matches at the Sportatorium and Will Rogers coliseum. I think this DVD is good but there could have been much better match selections. Although, Kevin says there is more on the way. Not 20 more years I hope. There is a unique feature on the disc that allows you to listen to Kevin and David Manning (former ref) do commentary on each match. Since the release of all the WWE Superstar books we are now 100% certain that this is sports entertainment. Kevin and David are still protecting the business. When you listen to the commentary it's disappointing to listen to them think were not more informed these days. In Ric Flair's "To be the Man" he talks about the Von Erichs for two solid pages and why Kerry wasn't given the chance to hold the title longer. David Manning is quoted as saying "we think there were some shananigans in Japan. C'mon Dave. Although this stuff is a little disppointing I would still recommend the DVD to all Von Erich fans and those that want to see how different wrestling is today. What I enjoyed the most is the features of Kevin on the ranch. He introduces us to his sons Ross and Marshall. Ross the oldest is a spitten image of Kerry. I also noticed on the biographies there was no mention of Chris the youngest Von Erich. As much as he wanted to be a professional wrestler but couldn't due to physical limitations it made me wonder why Kevin left him out. Like I said earlier, there supposedly more on the way. Hope so. Let me know what you think."
