There weren't that many good matches from the earlier years of RAW. As far as I remember (from looking through results and memory) the matches on that DVD are the best of what there was. Michaels vs Janetty from July 93 is only glaring omission I think.

Matt Bourne who played Doink was actually alright to watch when he was a heel and there seems to be a good bit of him on it.

Owen Hart vs. The 1-2-3 Kid

I'd say that's probably the best of the set. Remember though, Doink after about SummerSlam 1993 wasn't played by Matt Bourne and he turned face which was dreadful.

After Flair/Perfect, Razor/Michaels or Bret Hart/Kid are probably the best matches there. Both four stars easily.

To add to those matches above:

Lumberjack Match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship
“Hacksaw” Jim Duggan vs. Shawn Michaels
May 10, 1993

I remember this just being legit fun. Shawn bumping for Duggan who is way better than anyone who hasn't seen Mid-South in the 80's thinks. Not a classic by any means, but I definitely remember enjoying it.


Intercontinental Championship Match
Razor Ramon vs. Rick “The Model” Martel
October 11, 1993

If this is the match I remember right, it took up the majority of the show, and was time very well spent.



World Tag Team Championship Match
The Quebecers vs. Razor Ramon & The 1-2-3 Kid
February 21, 1994

Pretty good tag team match from memory.



10-Man Tag Team Match
IRS, Jeff Jarrett, Rick “The Model” Martel, & The Headshrinkers
vs.Tatanka, The 1-2-3 Kid, Thurman “Sparky” Plugg, & The Smoking Gunns
April 4, 1994

Another pretty good tag match, around **3/4-*** or something I think I gave it.

So it's a decent enough DVD anyway

I have the first Shawn Micheals VHS tape Hits from the Heartbreak Kid with a Monday Night RAW match against Duggan the week previous and I enjoyed that one too. Shawn wasn't as slim in 93 but he was very good considering what he was put in front of - a rusty Bob Backlund, Kamala, Crush etc.


There's a tag match from the second Action Zone betwen Michaels/Diesel and Razor/Kid - basically the clique trying to do better than the Hart brothers did the week previous on the debut of the show. It seems unlikely now we'll ever see this match on DVD.

Wasn't on the Tag Team DVD, Greatest Stars of the 90s, any of Shawn's DVDs and while not strictly a RAW match of course they could've added it in as an extra or something.

That Clique tag is fucking awesome, one of the better tag matches the company has ever put on, and blows all of those shitty and unbelievably overrated Beer Money/MCMG tag matches out of the water and into the freaking sun. Needs to make it onto DVD at some point, but if it doesn't, oh well, its easy to get online for people who haven't seen it (and those people should go watch it. NOW).

Hmm.. I might just go put it on again

I have it on a video tape which is still in good condition but ye know with tapes, the more you watch it the more it deteriorates. I'd download it if I could find a really good high quality version rather than a small avi with a low bit rate.

Why the f'n hell didn't that tag match get put on his Journey DVD anyway? I'm sure we could've done without the Jericho 'Mania XIX match for the millionith time!! Arrggh....

I just got a few cheapish DVDs from a few sellers on Amazon.co.uk. It was about 17.50 for all of them including 1.79 each for delivery to Ireland.





I love Backlash. That four way dance I think might be my favourite multi-man match WWF/WWE ever put on. It might edge out the Final Four!

I just got the Hallf of Fame for the matches included as extras.

I <3 Amazon sellers. I got pretty much all the SD 06 PPV's from there, as well as a bunch of other random ones, and didn't spend more than 2 each including delivery lol. NM and Arm 06 are both really great events, as is BL 07. Don't remember anything about Arm 05, and I didn't enjoy the 04 HOF much for the speeches.
