- WWE will be releasing a three-disc DVD set called WWE: Legends of Wrestling Collection on Tuesday, January 27, 2009. The DVD set contains episodes of WWE 24/7′s popular discussion panel show in which the likes of Jim Ross, Dusty Rhodes and Tazz discuss the legends of wrestling as well as other aspects regarding the history of wrestling. Here is the synopsis for the DVD set:
“Ric Flair, Lex Luger, Jerry “The King” Lawler & Junkyard Dog are just a few of the biggest names in the history of sports entertainment, a who’s who of professional wrestling immortality. In one of the most popular shows on WWE’s on demand channel, panels that include WWE Hall of Famers Jim Ross and Dusty Rhodes discuss the life and times of these legends. These shows have never been available on DVD – until now! Fans can now enjoy these panel discussions along with bonus matches featuring the best of the highlighted superstars.”
The cover for the DVD set has been released and it features Ric Flair, Sgt. Slaughter, Jerry “The King” Lawler, Junkyard Dog, and last but not least, former WCW Superstar Buff Bagwell. You can see the cover at the following link. The cover of the DVD set notes its discussions on Flair, Slaughter, Lawler & Junkyard Dog, as well as “Heatseekers.” This particular episode focuses on wrestlers who could easily get “heat” backstage, and Buff Bagwell appears to be the prime example of what it means. Bagwell is well aware of his misunderstood reputation as he once jokingly said in an interview that he gets heat just by walking down the street. During the episode, they discuss Bagwell’s infamous stint in WWE in 2001 as he was involved in some backstage incidents which led to his quick departure from the company. During his meeting with Jim Ross & Vince McMahon informing him of his release from the company, Bagwell said in an interview that Ross told him if he could somehow translate his heat backstage to the ring, he’d be money. Bagwell asked them why don’t they then, and they didn’t really respond.
