Length: 3.9 hrs (2 DVD)

NWA HANDHELDS 12/85 - 3/86 VOL 1(Oh yeah, bring on the good stuff! What we have here is a collection of handhelds from the Mid-Atlantic area during one of the hottest periods ever in US wrestling. Tons of great action to be seen here. It should be noted that all of these matches are clipped, though you get to see the vast majority of each match. The other thing worth noting on these matches is the absolutely insane level of crowd heat for them. These fans LOVED their wrestling! Quality is unreal, VG/EX!)
Magnum TA vs Nikita Koloff Midnight Express vs Rock & Rock Express (2/3 Falls) Ric Flair vs Dusty Rhodes Midnight Express vs Rock & Roll Express Magnum TA vs Nikita Koloff Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard vs Dusty Rhodes & Wahoo McDaniel, 3/28/86 (Bullrope/Strap match) Ric Flair vs Ronnie Garvin (Cage - ***1/2) Wahoo McDaniel vs Tully Blanchard Ric Flair vs Dusty Rhodes (they pull out the "Dusty Finish" for this one. Listen to the incredible pop Rhodes gets for "winning" the NWA title.) Magnum TA vs Nikita Koloff (Cage - ya know, one thing you'll see in this match and throughout this tape is a whole bunch of guys with "don't wanna get pinned"-itis. How do you have a cage match with a BS finish? Watch this match.) Ronnie Garvin vs Arn Anderson Ric Flair & Tully Blanchard vs Dusty Rhodes & Wahoo McDaniel(bullrope/strap) Wahoo McDaniel vs Jimmy Garvin Tully Blanchard vs Dusty Rhodes (Texas Death) RIC FLAIR VS RICKY MORTON (Even though he was impossible to take seriously as a threat to the world title, Morton was a helluva worker and he showcases it here. Flair & Morton go the full 60 minutes in this terrific match. I think about 35 minutes of it are shown)
