WWE just released Legends of Mid-South on Blue Ray and DVD.  Looks like 13 of the top 150 made the set, including 3 of top 4 (No Murdock-Windham).  No Murdoch or Chavo Guerrero at all.

 

http://www.amazon.com/Legends-Of-The-Mid-South-Wrestling/dp/B00DBPBOYM/

 

Disc listings for the set are in the reviews.

 

Also, there are some matches listed on the sets that have dates close to, but not exactly the same. Are these the same matches, or different from the same series?

My apologies if this is posted somewhere already, but I recall someone posting the ideal order in which to watch everything on this set, and was hoping one of you could point me in the right direction. I picked up the Watts set when it was first released, and never actually got around to watching it beyond bits and pieces, and I'm looking to finally do so. Thanks in advance!

Just finished the set the other day.  What a great set!  I can see myself rewatching this once a year.  It's so much fun and very little down time in it.  Looking at my ratings, I only consider 3 matches as below average.  I also have 44 matches in my top tier.

I STRONGLY suggest signing up to NWAOnDemand.com ASAP. There are a bunch of Mid-South/UWF matches that were not previously available on that channel that will help you fill in gaps in feuds. Some of them are good enough to make the top ten of the Mid-South set, I bet.
