WWE: nWo – The Revolution DVD Review (Disc One)

Released: November 6, 2012

He’s a die-hard wrestling fan from way back in the day just like me, so I hope you enjoy his thoughts on the program, while I will be handling the special features – like a boss.

Already this is a crazy show. The new World order come into the arena hanging on the back of dump trucks along with this huge obnoxious police and fire truck escort. It’s just WAY over the top, but that’s the point.
