We’re just short of 1 month away from the DVD and Blu-ray release of Legends of Mid-South Wrestling and it’s time for a WrestlingDVDNews.com exclusive sneak peek!

Last year WWE purchased the Watts Mid-South Wrestling/UWF library after several unsuccessful attempts in the past to acquire the footage. As such, the new Mid-South DVD marks the first time the company has produced a compilation on the territory, which boasts over 20 rare matches and moments with some of the most revered names in wrestling history.

For the first time ever, WWE presents the Legends of Mid-South Wrestling. One of the 1980’s hottest territories, Mid-South garnered national attention for its revolutionary storytelling and bruising, athletic matches orchestrated by no-nonsense promoter, “Cowboy” Bill Watts.

Now, the legends and Hall of Famers who cut their teeth in Mid-South share their tales of the fabled proving ground as we deliver over 20 classic confrontations. Plus, new interviews with Jake Roberts, Shawn Michaels, Ted DiBiase, Jim Ross, “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan and several others!

Great cover and great concept. But 6 hour run time! It has become a joke the amount of content on these sets.

Yeah, 6 hours seems very short for a 3 disc set…i think 2 disc sets were that length.

If this sells well, we could see a Volume 2 in the future…but have a strong feeling this set won’t go well with casuals, so hopefully the hardcore old school fans will pick this up.

I’d like to see some of the mid south matches in the superstar dvd sets which have yet to be released if a volume 2 doesn’t happen.

This is truly a huge step up compared to the AWA and WCCW two-disc sets from a few years back. I wish, like others on here, that those sets could have had this sort of treatment. These DVD looks very good, love the artwork, the layout and everything about it. Except for the obvious more recent shot of J.R. that looks woefully out of place. This is gonna be a good set and I will enjoy watching it, which is more than I can say about the WWE programming we have now!

The artwork and the disc art is old fashion wrestling which is perfect and I like it!

Artwork looks cool except for the two wrong photos I noticed right away. Butch Reed with blonde hair? Never had that in MSW. Jim Ross with a black cowboy hat and glasses? Sorry he never wore that in MSW. Pure laziness to find a correct pic I guess. Even Jake’s pic is wrong. At least it is closer than the others so no big deal. Overall I don’t really care, just thought I would mention it.

Great looking listing overall. Why couldn’t they of done this for the AWA and World Class sets? Oh well at least they are getting better.

Test’s picture on the Attitude DVD was wrong too. He had the short hair from WWECW.

I actually don’t mind how plain the artwork is because it speaks of the times. Mid-South was nothing grand or great. It was part of the roots and nothing more. I love how the cover art basically continues throughout the set. Very nice and too bad the blu-ray will have a lot of these photos removed.

Australia won’t get the full artwork on their dvds too as all wresting dvds come with normal dvd standard cases rather than the folding ones contain the awesome artwork.

This is going to be my introduction to Mid South. Even watching as a young kid in the mid-80s I never heard of the group until long after it was gone. I’ve heard so many good things about this group, and I’m really excited to check it out. My only issue is that there’s no documentary on the history of the promotion. I don’t know if it’s because they didn’t get enough to be able to do one, or what. From what I understand, Watts’ ex-wife (still?) owns a bunch of the footage from their divorce. Maybe one day WWE… Read more »

WWE purchased the full library from the Watts family last summer, it’s this that they have used. I believe they have TV from 1981 – 1987 spanning Mid-South Wrestling and the UWF as well as recorded house shows (and a few other gems I’m sure).

The packaging is rather bland inside but I suppose it’s to be expected since this is an old-school release.

Excellent cover art. I’m stoked that the Freebirds are on the cover as well as Jake “The Snake”. Really looking forward to this set. I hope they do a documentary about the promotion in the future. =)

I am ready for this release! UWF wrestling had the best of J.R.’s screaming! Especially the last 3 seconds of every televised program! I am screaming like J.R. right now as I type!
