While the majority of the WWE docs are examples of the one that wins the war controlling history, these WWE Legends docs are actually pretty fun. Seeing as how Dark Side of the Ring had their own episode about Randy Savage, WWE decided to go all in on the more sensational sides of the life story of the Macho Man, somehow out scummy-ing — that’s a word, trust me — Dark Side at their own scummy and often bleak for the sake of bleakness game.
Now you can have that doc, as well as “Rowdy” Piper, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Booker T all on one disk from Lionsgate and A&E. Sadly, WWE are discontinuing their physical media after the end of this year, so getting more releases like this probably won’t happen.
There’s some real quality here, as Savage’s was produced by Billy Corben and Alfred Spellman (Screwball), Piper’s was directed by Emmy and Peabody Award-winner Joe Lavine (who has directed for ESPNs 30 for 30 series), Stone Cold’s was produced by Jason Hehir (The Last Dance, Andre the Giant) and the Booker T doc was directed by Emmy and Peabody Award-winner George Roy (The Curse of the Bambino).
If you want to know more about these great legends, this is a great place to get started. And these sets are pretty inexpensive and easy to find at Walmart or on Amazon.
