-Booker T meets an american footballer because they both do a hand gesture...
-The Montreal Screwjob is talked about, this is probably the best segment in the main feature, they explain what happened and this is the first time Shawn Michaels publically admitted that he knew about the screwjob beforehand.
Those are all the features shown in the main part of the dvd, it's hosted by Gene Okerlund and runs about an hour and 50 minutes.
The disk also has for Bonus matches. They are.
Jimmy Snuka vs Ray Stevens (Madison Square Garden - 28/12/82)- This match was pretty dull, it was slow and Snuka only used punches and headbutts as offence. The match doesn't even get a decisive ending. This match isn't really worth watching unless you're a big Jimmy Snuka fan.
Bret Hart vs British Bulldog (WWE Intercontinental Championship Summerslam - 29/08/92) - This is a good change from the last match as it's great. It was the main event of Summerslam but for the Intercontinental championship, which I don't think had ever happened before, it was in front of Bulldog's home country. It was a really good match between two great wrestlers, one of the best matches in Bulldog's career.
Bret Hart vs Shawn Michaels (WWE Championship Survivor Series - 09/11/97) - This is the infamous screwjob match. You can tell something is happening right from the beginning with both men being filmed from backstage before they made their entrances. his was less like their usual matches, more of an all out brawl, there is a ten minute brawl between the two that goes through the crowd and around the arena before the match even starts, once it starts it is a pretty good match, not as good as some of their previous matches, but that was understandable since Shawn's mind was on the ending and everything that would happen because of it. After the match Shawn is quickly removed from the arena for his own safety.
Scott Steiner vs Booker T (World Heavyweight Championship vs US Heavyweight Championship WCW Nitro - 26/03/01) - This was the last ever title match on WCW Nitro as WWE had just bought WCW, the match was short but good.
Overall this dvd is good if you like behind the scenes stuff, I probably wouldn't watch most of it again but the main reason I bought it was for the Bret Hart/Shawn Michaels match, and since I got it really cheap it was worth it as that match is a huge part of wrestling history, and a pretty good match. If you see it for cheap(Amazon's prices for it seem pretty reasonable) I would recommend it.
