DVD of the Day #209 - The Life and Times of Mr. Perfect

You know, I love Curt Hennig. Growing up on the AWA, I got to know him long before he was Mr. Perfect, but that first run in the WWF really was his golden era. I also enjoyed his later WCW work with the nWo and the West Texas Rednecks, but I was surprised that Hennig got his own DVD simply because he was a midcarder and JTTS for most of his career post AWA.

The documentary included here is nice, but it’s mainly about Curt as a family man and his AWA years simply because there wasn’t much he actually did of note in the WWF save for making other wrestlers, like Bret Hart and Kerry Von Erich, look good and help get them over. It’s a shame, but there really isn’t any focus on hios actual career or feuds here - mainly because everyone he feuded with is either dead or out of the business. His WCW years had an actual look at angles with his time as a Horsemen, the nWo and his “Rap is Crap” video, but all we really get out of this documentary is that Curt was a good family man, who died from too much cocaine, and who really had a bit of a fecal fetish. In the end, this documentary is a bit disappointing as there’s not much we really learn about Curt’s wrestling career.

The matches included are pretty poor too. They include a 60 minute draw between Hennig and Bockwinkel, but not the match where he wins the world title. They have a generic tag match between Hennig and Hall and Steve Regal and Jummy Garvin, but not the 58 minute classic consided one of the best matches of 1985-86. The WWE matches are pretty crappy ones. Hennig Vs. the Red Rooster. Really? They’ve got a Hogan match, THREE Hitman matches, a KVE match the horrible Perfect/HBK match from Summerslam 1993. Seriously? Three Bret Hart matches? Why? Show a little variety!

I would have loved to have seen better matches from WCW than yet another Bret/Curt match. What about Hennig and Whindam and their 2/3 fall match against Benoit and Malenko? What about Hennig/The Giant when he perfect-plexes Paul Wight? There are a ton of great WCW matches from Curt’s run. Give us one of those instead.

Overall, this collection is far from perfect and Mr. Perfect deserved a lot better than this.
