WWE Revisits Roaring 20s With New DVD Set

Originally published July 6, 2010

(Stamford, CT) - For almost a century, wrestling purists have been waiting to see a definitive collection for the premier grapplers of the 1920s.

Next Tuesday, their prayers will be answered. Of course, most of them would be dead by now. But still.

 

World Wrestling Entertainment is releasing a three DVD set called Greatest Superstars of the 20s that will feature the greats of that decade, including Jim Londos, Joe Stecher, George Hackenschmidt, Stanislaus Zbyszko and Ric Flair.

In addition to historical experts such as Jim Ross, Christian and The Miz explaining what made the superstars so great, fans will also be treated to four exciting bonus matches, three of which go past the eight-hour mark (the other one was a squash match). About 80 percent of each match features some sort of headlock.

Because the matches have no original soundtrack, the commentary of Josh Matthews and Matt Striker will be dubbed in.
