Here's a few bits of info as to what will be on the DVD, from 1wrestling:

(MSG) Debut match vs. Pete Sanchez 3/1/76
A day in the life of the Four Horsemen
His match with Triple H from 5/19/03 Raw with a post-show tribute that has never-been-seen before on TV
Plus all the promos & controversies surrounding his greatest matches against Harley Race, Dusty Rhodes, Barry Windham, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, Terry Funk, Sting, as well as his 1992 Royal Rumble victory.
BONUS: 6 hidden Easter eggs

That looks very sweet. If there's going to be one match from each of those opponents, here's the ones I would pick.

Ric Flair vs Dusty Rhodes - 09/17/81 in Kansas City, Ric Flair's first World Heavyweight Title win.

Ric Flair vs Harley Race - 11/24/83 Starrcade - Flair wins second World Title in a Steel Cage with Gene Kiniski as referee.

Ric Flair vs Barry Windham - Crocket Cup 87

Ric Flair vs Ricky Steamboat - WrestleWar '89 - Flair takes back the World Title from Steamboat and gets jumped by Terry Funk in an infamous angle

Ric Flair vs Terry Funk - Clash IX - I Quit Match

Ric Flair vs Sting - Clash I - Flair makes Sting's career

If there's room, I think there should be either the Flair/Perfect or a Flair/Savage match from WWF. Then Flair/Vader from Starrcade '93. One of the Easter Eggs HAS to be Flair's return in Greensboro.

Really, if they just have any match against those wrestlers they mentioned, it DVD can't miss.

*wiping drool from mouth*

That might be the greatest wrestling DVD of all time. Hell, that may be the greatest DVD of all time.

They're spanning 3 disks here, so I see no reason why every one of his World Title wins should not be included in their entirety. That alone would be worth the price of the DVD.

I had always thought that WWE only owned WCW footage from when it was named "WCW" by Ted Turner, and not the previous stuff (being the NWA). Am I incorrect?

Greenville. Greenville, South Carolina. The Bi-Lo Center. And I was there, baby. "Fire me! I'm already fired!"

there's not enough room for every world title win, some of Flair's matches were around 60 minutes.

This could be a six-disc set, and there STILL wouldn't be enough room to hold all of Flair's greatest matches.

I think they have everything from when Turner first bought out Crockett, which slightly predates the WCW name (as the organization's name, though the TV shows were still World Championship Wrestling at the time). Only evidence of that I have is they've shown footage of Flair-Garvin, which (if memory serves me correct) happened right after Turner bought the promotion. It wasn't officially "WCW" until the Sting-Black Scorpion cage match several years later.

For the Windham match, I'd prefer an unedited (if there is one) version of the early '87 match on Worldwide where they went the whole 60 minute show.
And I want the Magnum TA stuff from '85 included.
