WWE: The Rise & Fall of WCW is a direct-to-dvd documentary chronicling the rise to popularity and eventual collapse of the wrestling promotion World Championship Wrestling. When Jim Crockett Promotions was purchased by Ted Turner in 1988, WCW was formed. Throughout the early 1990s, WCW was a southern style wrestling promotion and a contrast to the over-the-top WWF style. WCW began to sign old WWF stars in the early 1990s like Hulk Hogan and Randy "Macho Man" Savage. After performing poorly in the ratings, Eric Bischoff was put in charge of the creative direction of the company in the mid-1990s. He signed WWF cast-aways like Kevin Nash and Scott Hall and created the nWo. This angle sparked the wrestling boom of the late 1990s and the "Monday Night Wars" between WCW Nitro and WWF Raw. While WCW ushered in a new golden age of professional wrestling, politics and in fighting lead the company to go out of business in 2001 when the company was purchased by WWF owner Vince McMahon.moreless
