The History of WWE: 50 Years of Sports Entertainment – Blu-ray Edition

You could have knocked me over with a feather when I found out that WWE has been around for 50 years. Enduring!  Who knew men rolling around in tights and spandex would be found to be entertaining for that many years.  The disc tries to cover all the greats and firsts from the WWE over the years.  The history of the organization is gone over to show the ups and downs, champs, television exposure, and then all the special events that have sprung out of it.  For fans of the wrestling organization many of these fights have been previously released in other compilation packages, but if you are a fan you can watch them over and over.
