October 2

December 4

World Heavyweight Championship

#1 Contender's Steel Cage Match
Batista vs. Rey Mysterio - **
January 22


Overall Disc Score: 6/10

- Clearly in late '09 and the early part of 2010, nothing very exciting was happening on SD. 8 man tag wasn't anything special until the last few minutes when it became fun. As was the entire feud, Taker/Punk was a letdown. The whole match was based around the "conspirators" that screwed Taker at Breaking Point. Nothing special.

- Morrison/Ziggler was easily match of the disc, but it could've been sooooo much more. They kept it relatively short for a 2/3 falls match. Ziggler looked like a million bucks (as he seemingly always does) and Morrison sold his ribs pretty well. Would've liked to see him win with something other than Starship Pain though. That would've played off the rib injury much better. This has one of the best looking Zig Zags I may have ever seen.

- The last two matches did nothing for me. You can only do the same Rey vs. Bigger Guy formula so much before it gets old. Rey gets dominated, hits a couple springboard moves, then gets kicked in the face. It's certainly entertaining to an extent but then it's just time to move on. Oh and as a disclaimer, I've seen the Taker/Rey match from the Rumble. Liked that one, not these.

- The segments included on here are Rock's "return" to Smackdown from October 2. It's just a promo via satellite. Somewhat entertaining but he buries Ziggler (for no reason) & Punk of course. Then Punk's SES Intervention with Serena Deeb. No one in the crowd cared about that at all. Let's hope the next two discs are improvements. I want DEM DERE GEMS!

They put that on Mysterio's Life of a Masked Man set. Probably the only match I've personally seen from the two that I'd put over **. Another odd thing is that they talked about how much of a "classic" Taker vs. Jericho was and how it was a first time meeting, and then didn't include it. Makes no sense. It's on Jericho's set so it evens out I guess.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Is it really? Damn. Now I REALLY have to own the 2nd Mysterio set.

Too bad they didn't decide to add Jericho/Kane 10/30 or Morrison/McIntyre 12/4 on the set. Really was a fan of both. Did DX vs Hart Dynasty make any set? b/c not adding that is a bit of a surprise too.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

^It's on the Hart & Soul DVD. DX/Hart Dynasty that is.

You should own the last Mysterio set they released. It's not as good as The Biggest Little Man which is one of the best collection of matches WWE has released. It's worth it because it's Mysterio and he's one of the most consistent performers ever. Can't go wrong there.

Random thought: Mysterio/Luke Gallows SD '10 is surprisingly a really good match. Not on any DVD though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Ok good. Wasn't sure if it made it or not. Good match.

I'll get it eventually. First on my list is to still obtain both of Eddie's sets. Cheating Death & Stealing Life and Viva La Raza. Never find them in stores (stores with more in-depth selection). Always forget to look online since all I seem to buy online from wrestling is TNA, Indies, etc. All WWE is usually purchased in store.

Mysterio vs Gallows 3/5/10, right? They also duked it out on 3/19/10. Although, I'm 100% sure you mean 3/5. Recall that one being the better match. Gallows winning the rematch was

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yes the first one is the better of the two if I remember correctly. I also recall Rey having some solid matches with Jack Swagger that year as well.

I was a little disappointed with Cheating Death Stealing Life set. The documentary was just OK. It's kind of short and cuts out a lot of info on his life/career. His autobiography is much more informative. Also, other than the 2/3 Falls match with Malenko in ECW, the best matches are on other sets - Mysterio Halloween Havoc 97 (Biggest Little Man) and Lesnar (Viva La Raza). Now Viva La Raza I'd recommend because it has the infamous Judgment Day match with JBL, the Lesnar match, Cage match with Rey, No DQ with Edge, some solid ECW, WCW, & WWF stuff and comments from superstars in between the match selections.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I loved Eddie's book. Probably my favorite along with Foley's books and "Are We There Yet?". Dibiase's book fucking sucks though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The Cheating Death Eddie set features a documentary that aired on TV. I remember seeing it on UPN during Eddie's most popular period. That's why its short. I like the set too.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yep, the Mysterio vs Swagger matches were . Best being from MITB. Excellent match.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll probably purchase CDST set if I can find it for a decent/cheap price. I know it has some matches I need to own on it. Viva La Raza's set has a good bunch of what I need to own. All the WWE TV matches + WCW bouts is where it is at. Only 6 WCW matches I need on it. I wanted more.

vs Ultimo Dragon from Slamboree made it. Solid match. TERRIBLE crowd. Well, for that match only. They're pretty awesome the rest of the show. IE the insane pop for Malenko when he removes the mask to wrestle Jericho.
