I enjoy all the rebooked shoots tbh. Russo's is ok, but he barely goes into detail about anything and honestly I'm not sure he even thought about it much before hand and certainly didn't write anything down, so half of it is on the fly. His angle isn't that impressive at all, but I always enjoy listening to Russo and his crazy opinions and shit. Same with Cornette .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I can remember not being that impressed with Russo's rework of the Invasion, given his expertise in clusterfucks. Like Z said, it seemed as if he was just doing it on the fly with very little planning or preparation. I have yet to see Cornette's though, I didn't know he did an Invasion rework. I'll try and check that out.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I liked the idea of his for the NWO type angle invasion although not much the execution, but i get the impression, and i think he says it himself, he didnt spend much time thinking about it lol, whereas Cornette went into great detail as ever and took it more seriously i thought.

I enjoyed both for what they were though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Didn't Cornettes rebooking feature Terry Funk in a prominent role? What did Funk have to do with the war between WWF vs WCW?

Russo booked pretty much everything on the fly. I hated how he introduced the WCW wrestlers. Vince asking Bischoff to bring in WCW wrestlers to take on the NWO which leads to WCW (of course) turning on the WWF is unbelievable and unrealistic.

However, he got one basic, simple thing right. The one thing that Vince was not able to figure out. You can't have this story without three guys: Hogan, Hall and Nash. This sentence alone makes his Invasion better than what we actually got.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Vince probably knew he couldn't do the Invasion without Hall, Nash and Hogan, but he wasn't going to wait around a year for their contracts to be up, and he wasn't willing to pay them the obscene amount of money their contracts gave them to sit on their arse and do nothing.

And yet a decade later he throws monstrous amount of cash at Lesnar for like, 3 matches (doubt he'll wrestle anywhere other than just WM now) .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I wish they'd do a Bluray version of the Annuals instead of just DVD. Hopefully the new company will do that. Ever since I got my PS3, if I can get something on Bluray I just do that rather than DVD (usually wait for an offer of course, fuck paying FULL PRICE lol).

FUCK the 4/2 Punk/Henry isn't on there.

Some really good stuff on there though. A bunch of those pointless main event tag matches too though.

Not digging that set tbh. Too many pointless MATCHES. Not enough pointless PROMOS. Official dvd/PROMO/discussion thread.
