Clips of Ole Anderson turning on Dusty vs. Russians with Solie & Ole on commentary, which I remember having an mp3 of. Then clips of the Brisco Bros TV debut, Freebirds, Road Warriors, Rock & Roll Express.

 

Watching this as a kid I was in awe of seeing a ton of teams and highlights of guys I'd only heard and read about. Still fun to see these now.

Highlights of the famous Ole Anderson turn on Dusty in the cage, as well as squash footage from the Briscos, Freebirds, Road Warriors (with Paul Ellering doing homoerotic commentary), and Rock & Roll Express.

Great stuff, but just as with the singles there wasn't enough JCP. Only Rock 'n' Roll was represented by actual footage. Where were the Midnight Express, to name just one notable snub?

 

It was interesting to see the Road Warriors with no face paint. This had to have been just after they debuted, Precious Paul sounded like he needed a cold shower in a hurry, but Gordon, as usual, takes things in stride.

 

It's easy to make fun of Ole now, but he sounded like the toughest, meanest bastard who ever lived back in 1980. Even thirty-six years later, I kind of felt concern for Dusty once everyone started beating on him.

 

You'd think they could have found out how to spell Brisco properly, especially since Jack was a former World champion. Maybe this was their way of taking a shot at Jerry, who was working for Vince by now.

Good look at some historic tag teams.  Loved the footage of Morton on the mat before the double dropkick.  And Ole's turn on Dusty probably had to be there.
