Listing For Upcoming WWE Legends of Mid-South Wrestling DVD Release

When it comes to wrestling preservation, World Wrestling Entertainment isn’t doing the best of jobs. Since the company’s major success is predicated on the boom periods in the 1980s and late 1990s, of course they would want to spotlight those respective eras. They get more DVD sales as compared to a singular disc retrospective on Superstar Billy Graham or various two-disc compilations regarding World Class Championship Wrestling or All-Star Wrestling.

This notwithstanding, every now and again the company will dig deeper into their video tape library and issue a release that doesn’t include the Shawn Michaels/Razor Ramon Ladder Match for the tenth time. This year that release will be Legends of Mid-South Wrestling. Arriving to DVD and Blu-ray on September 10, 2013, the set bolsters plenty of notable names before they would become household names in the then-WWF, WCW, etc. Such sports entertainers include Ted DiBiase, Paul Orndorff, “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan and the other “Hacksaw” Butch Reed, Junkyard Dog, plus the greatest tag team rivalry of all time, The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express and The Midnight Express.

Here’s the explosive contents listing released by Wrestling DVD News appropriately enough this Fourth of July.
