The '80s were a boom time for professional wrestling. This documentary presents 15 memorable matches from that decade. Included is a 1983 dog-collar match between Roddy Piper and Greg "the Hammer" Valentine, a 1986 battle between longtime rivals Dusty Rhodes and Ric Flair, the legendary main event from the original Wrestlemania, and a battle for the AWA heavyweight crown between Jerry "The King" Lawler and Kerry Von Erich. This release contains matches from each of what were at the time the three biggest pro wrestling organizations: the WWF (later known as the WWE), the NWA, and the AWA.
