Been watching several of these over the last couple of months, wondered if you guys have, what are your thoughts or recommendations. I don't watch wrestling itsself anymore but man it was a passion back in my younger days.

So far highlights for me have been Card Subject to Change and The Rise and Fall of WCCW. Anyone see either of these? Thoughts? Comments? Pontifications?

Odd. Vaeni was talking about Card Subject to Change last night. I havent' seen it yet, but JV says good things.

Is The Rise and Fall of WCCW the WWE production or the independent one? Both are good, but the indy one is slightly better than the WWE one.

Gave you the wrong title. I watched The Triumph and Tragedy of World Class Championship Wrestling which looks to be a WWE production but it isn't the fluff piece they usually put out. That said, any idea what the name of the indie film? I'd love to see that one as well.

Heroes of World Class is the title.

The WWE's AWA documentary, on Netflix, is pretty good, too. Not great, by any means, but still fun and interesting.

The WCW documentary isn't that great, if I recall correctly, and the Monday Night Wars one is also pretty lousy, if memory serves correctly.
