Brian Pillman DVD - Disc 1

Disc 1:
1) Bad Company vs. The Midnight Cowboys – 3
2) Brian Pillman vs. Lex Luger – 5
3) Brian Pillman & Tom Zenk vs. The Freebirds – 5

After a very good documentary and some other intriguing tidbits, a tag match from the olden days of Stampede Wrestling kicks off the bonus features on this disc. Pillman was teaming with Bruce Hart in this one and didn’t offer up too much and the opposition looked sloppy. I would’ve liked to have seen the whole match because only five of an apparent twenty was presented. The match with Luger from Halloween Havoc 89 was kept suprisingly simple. Pillman was just starting out in WCW at this point and the match itself ran about fifteen minutes. I definitely think it’s one of Luger’s better efforts as well. The final bonus match was the finals of the 1990 U.S. Tag Title tournament. The Freebirds really know how to work a crowd. Pillman & Zenk score the upset in a very satisfying tag match to close disc one.
