Judge Franck Tabouring feels he's going to be the star of the 2010s.
Meet wrestling's biggest stars of the '90s.
The '90s marked quite an exciting time for pro wrestling, and I remember spending many hours glued to the television watching all the action and silliness going on inside the ring. The '90s also saw many talented wrestlers acquiring stardom. In WWE: Greatest Stars of the '90s, viewers get the unique chance to relive that era and witness who their favorite wrestlers rose to fame.
The first disc of this three-disc collection features fifteen brief profiles of some of wrestling's biggest and most popular athletes. Each segment runs for less than 10 minutes and includes interviews with the stars and their colleagues, WWE officials and commentators. Star profiles also include an interesting collection of clips showcasing their debut matches, entrances, and gimmicks. Although they're rather short, they do offer fans a concise account of what influence each of these wrestlers had on the entertainment sport, how they got started, and how they evolved throughout the decade.
Superstars featured on Disc One include Shawn Michaels, The Rock, Kevin Nash, Owen Hart, Mick Foley, Ric Flair, Lex Luger, Undertaker, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Sting, Razor Ramon, Triple H, Hulk Hogan, Yokozuna, and Bret Hart. The collection of profiles also feature brief pieces on Vince McMahon, Eric Bischoff, Paul Heyman, and wrestling entertainment's women of the '90s. Additionally, Disc One also boasts a large bonus section filled with special vignettes, backstage interviews, and a few other funny moments from an exciting decade in the history of pro wrestling.
Discs Two and Three include a total of sixteen matches featuring all the stars from the Disc One. Here are a few of my favorites:
• Hulk Hogan vs. Ric Flair at Madison Square Garden in 1991
• Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart at Survivor Series in 1992
• Diesel vs. Razor Ramon at Superstars in 1994
• Mankind vs. Hunter Hearst Helmsley in a Steel Cage Match at
SummerSlam in 1997
• Hulk Hogan vs. Lex Luger in a WCW Championship Match at Nitro
Even though this collection features fewer matches than other recent WWE three-disc releases, WWE: Greatest Stars of the '90s will make a solid addition to your wrestling collection. The star profiles are not as in-depth as in Legends of Wrestling because the list of featured wrestlers on this set is way longer, but they do offer viewers a whole bunch of useful information about the guys they used to—and maybe still—follow in the ring every week.
All the content on this three-disc set is presented in a full-frame transfer, and some of the older matches obviously have weaker image quality than the more recent ones. For the most part, though, video and audio quality work just fine.
WWE: Greatest Stars of the '90s is yet another intense WWE DVD collection you shouldn't miss.
