Mr Perfect DVD
Bret Hart DVD
Dusty Rhodes DVD
Rise & Fall of WCW
Ricky Steamboat DVD
Both Ric Flair DVDs
Mr. Perfect's DVD is OK, but could have been better.
Starrcade DVD is pretty good.
Bret's DVD is one of the best.
Dusty's DVD is pretty good.
Rise & Fall of WCW is told from a revisionist perspective. The matches on it are great. Especially Disc 2 which might be the single best Disc the WWE ever put out.
Ricky Steamboat's DVD is great. It's kinda hard to tell a story of someone who wasn't very controversial and is generally a really nice guy. The matches are great, though.
RAW Elimination Chamber
John Cena vs. Ted DiBiase vs. Randy Orton vs. Triple H vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Sheamus
Not the best Elimination chamber match but still a good watch. Disappointing ending as it would have been nice to see Cena and Triple H go at it for longer. Nice spot in the middle of the match when Kingston’s head was shoved through the chains by Legacy.
Match Rating: ***1/4
John Cena vs. Batista
Vince McMahon comes out and announces that Cena must defend his title straight away against Batista. Cena gets the punch in but Batista quickly finishes him off and ends Cena’s 5 minute reign.
Match Rating: ¼*
Kane vs. Drew McIntyre
Average match with an average ending but at least the right person went over.
Match Rating: **
Gail Kim and Maryse vs. LayCool
Was originally meant to be a match between Gail Kim and Maryse for the Diva’s championship but Vickie changed it to this. Decent women’s match that was kept quick and advanced the feud of Gail and Maryse with Maryse refusing to make any tags.
Match Rating: *
United States Championship
M.V.P vs. The Miz
A rematch from their Royal Rumble clash and just like that one, this was announced on the night. Better than their Rumble match and a good match.
Match Rating: **1/2
World Heavyweight Championship
Smackdown Elimination Chamber
Rey Mysterio vs. Chris Jericho vs. The Undertaker vs. John Morrison vs. CM Punk vs. R-Truth
The second chamber match for the night and the better of the two in my opinion. I thought the chamber was used better throughout this match which is essential in this match type.
Match Rating: ***3/4
Overall PPV Rating: 5.5/10. Besides the two chamber matches there isn’t much else on this PPV that makes it worth getting.
I chose most interested in Austin, Rock and Sting sets. My personal suggestion to them was to create a DVD that has Undertaker out of character talking about his career. I also chose the option to NOT have content edited to meet PG rating guidelines. God I hope most people choose that option.
Gave them a shitload of ideas, from a Daniel Bryan set spanning his entire career starting in 1998, to Raw vs. Nitro year by year sets, to WCW PPV anthologies, to the Greatest Superstars to Never Be in WWE (Sting, Kobashi, Misawa, Liger, del Santo, etc.)
I guess the Blu-Rays don't sell half as well as they should.
That was another thing they asked about in the survey. If you own a device that plays blu-rays. I assume this survey will affect how they produce future sets. I know the PPV survey led to them changing one of the names for a PPV this year.
Nah I wasn't pitching that idea, that's not cost-effective. And no way in fucking Hell do I want full episodes of Nitro. Just two discs of each show year by year (sets totaling four discs like Raw: The Beginning), with only the good/noteworthy shit. I do not need to see Big Bubba vs. Kevin Sullivan or Hugh Morrus vs. Glacier.
