This match list is but a fraction of the matches that will be featured on the two-disc set which chronicles the history of the Clash of the Champions Event that was a long running staple of WCW.

The Clash of the Champions started out in 1988 when the NWA and Jim Crockett Promotions still ran the company.  This was before Ted Turner took over the promotion and renamed it World Championship Wrestling.

The Clash was originally created to battle Vince McMahon's already successful WrestleMania pay-per-view events, and it was aired for free on TBS (Turner Broadcasting Station) on March 27, 1988, the same night as the WWE's WrestleMania IV.

The feature bout of the first Clash of the Champions was a 45 minute time limit draw between Ricky Steamboat and Ric Flair for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship.

Since 1988, there have been 35 Clash of the Champion Events with the last one airing in 1997. This DVD set will be a great addition for hardcore WCW fans to add to their collection.
