I'm sure the documentary part of Disc One is going to shit all over WCW from start to finish, with the requisite tale of WCW's dominance from 1995/96 - 97/98 just to make it look like Vince's ultimate victory was against a semi-worthy opponent, but the match listing from Discs Two and Three are surprisingly flattering. There were a lot of high-profile shitfests throughout the Hogan and nWo era that Vince could rub their noses in; instead he chose to focus on the cruiserweight division. Nice.

I reviewed the matchlist and the thought occurred to me, how much mileage WWF is trying to get out of Flair vs. Steamboat. There's F&S matches all over the freakin' place! Flair's two sets, "The Greatest Wrestling Stars of the 80s" set, and I think there's one even on an old Triple H dvd floating around back in the day.
