I used to be an adventurer like you, then I took an arrow to the knee. Now I watch WWE content on Netflix.

In all seriousness, thanks for the tip. I've pretty much done all I can do in Skyrim, so I have the time on my hands to watch this stuff.

I second this - the Bobby Heenan DVD is amazing. If you get the chance to watch it, check it out.

"The Very Best of WCW Monday Nitro" and "Breaking the Code: Behind the Walls of Chris Jericho" get five-star recommendations from me. (On DVD; I don't know if the Netflix content varies.)

What these are on Netflix is edited versions of the actual DVD. The Big Show's on Netflix, doesn't show any of his matches in full and cuts some of the material from the DVD. That's why it's only 50 some minutes while the DVD set is several hours... The greatest cage matches on Netflix only shows about 6 of the 50 that was on the original DVD.

Still though, quite a bit of content.

Yeah, no where near the amount of footage that would be on the DVD's for sale. Seems that most stand up pretty well as little documentaries though. Only a handful that I have seen seem to be primarily match based.

Still, most of what I've seen on there so far though has been really good. If these versions are clips and pieces of content that are spread across hours of content from the originals dvd, they did a really great job in editing them together to tell the story.

I THINK the Rock & Macho Man's are complete on Watch Instant with the matches & documentary, but I'm working from memory.

Thank you very much for the update.

I streamed pretty much everything that netflix had available six months ago and this has to be at least double that. Looking forward to watching "OMG!"

You're welcome! Too bad about these not showing up outside of the U.S. There are some real gems in here.

I updated the original post to include "episode" count and run times for each part. Some of the newer additions appear to be full sets similar to what was released on DVD. I also discovered two that I missed on the first go around. Top 50 superstars of all time & The Randy Savage collection.

The Randy Savage collections is actually pretty awesome... I still have to finish watching it, its REALLY long.

I unfortunately hadn't seen his matches with Ricky Steamboat before and they were really awesome, especially the first one was sick.

I highly recommend it.

Only drawback as far as I saw was that they didn't include all of Savage's promos (huge drawback imo but the volume of wrestling you get is pretty sizeable)

OMG! was cringe worthy, stopped it after about #45 on the countdown which was also the second Cena moment. Hearing that theme song every three minutes along with everyone staying in character and pretending like Ted Dibiase actually paid someone to have plastic surgery to look like Earl Hebner was more than I could take.

However, it's been awhile since I'd seen the LOD documentary, had my neighbor stop by to watch it and he was marking out huge for it which was awesome.

Oh yeah, very tongue in cheek with this one. There are a few that are like that in here. The DX "new and improved" one has something like that too. Throughout the whole thing everybody is in character. really kinda annoying since it's DX but not really DX. You know what I mean?

The OMG stuff is their venison of a VH1 production. If you can look past all the cheese (the theme constantly playing is a tough one for sure), you will find some good stuff in there. I loved the bit on the ref that continually tried to commit suicide show after show. I forgot all about that when I watched it the first time. Bad taste really, but the fish tank scene had me rolling.

The latest one that I watched was the Shawn Michaels video. Quality production for sure.
