Great DVD set telling the tale of a troubled man with a great career.

This is a three disc set that contains about 7 hours of story about Scott.

Disc one is all about his life including the very dark parts including his killing of a man who was attempting to kill him back in Florida at a strip club as well as his terrible bouts with alcohol. Included in this is the infamous 2011 footage where he appeared at a small venue was so drunk he could hardly move.

Disc Two has some of Scott's vignettes as Razor Ramon and they are quite good. it was nice to see these again after all this time. There are also about 8 short stories told by Scott, his mother and his brother. The matches on this disc total 13 and cover from 1985 to 1994 in which Scott has several persona's including The American Starship, The Diamond Studd and Razor Ramon.

His opponents in some of these matches include Bret "Hit Man" Hart, Shawn Michaels and Rick Martell. These are good to see again and are from the WWF, AWA and Mid-South. They all bring back good memories of a much better time in the sport.

Disc Three has 11 more matches and covers the years 1994-2002. These include matches against Jeff Jarrett, Diesel and Goldust in the WWF before Scott came to WCW with Kevin Nash are along with Hulk Hogan made wrestling history as the NWO. There are six matches in which Scott represents the NWO in WCW, and those are all good. The final two matches take us back to WWE with Scott against The Rock and then to Wrestlemania 18 against Stone Cold Steve Austin.

This entire set is one of the best I have seen in a long time. It tells an all too real story of what this business can do to a person and all I can say is thank God for people like Diamond Dallas Page and Jake Roberts. They have really helped Scott overcome his demons. A few years ago I thought we had lost him.

There are some real highlights here including Scott's appearance on The Jerry Springer Show back in the day with two children sadly dying of AIDS. That little segment alone should make anybody stop and think that wrestlers are people too and all too human. One of the best releases of the year so far.
