Pro wrestling in a way is an art form, a balance of performance in the ring and out of the ring with props, managers and commentators making up the vast minutiae of the show we see live on or tape. Along the way, there are some great stars who have not received the just due they deserve.
The WWE will be releasing an upcoming DVD that I cannot wait to get my hands on. The Legends of Mid-South Wrestling DVD will hit the stores in September and Jim Ross just recently revealed an intriguing match listing for the home video.
