YES!

I must own the Nitro, Bret, & IYH sets, but this is easily the one I'm most anticipating. First ever set I bought was Foley's Hit or Misses DVD. As a lifelong fan, I got to own this overdue set complete with Documentary in tact. I can't wait to own it. Match listing should hopefully be gold too. Don't skimp on the WCW matches WWE, please.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

And we all know how special Hell In A Cell with Undertaker was but we really don't need it on another set imo. It's on like 3 or 4 DVDs already. Foley has plenty of matches not on multiple sets that can go here. The Texas Death Match with Vader from Halloween Havoc '93 and the Submit or Surrender Match with Sting from WCW Pro in late '91 come to mind among others. I'm sure an ECW match or two will be on there.

Has anyone seen Foley's Deathmatches in Japan?


Much gratitude to

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah, I was furious when the Deathmatch vs Vader didn't make it on his the GH&M set. Saturday Night match was good, but we all know Havoc is the stronger bout.

Doubt HIAC will make it considering all the praise it's received on sets and by Foley himself. I do think all Undertaker vs Foley matches have been put on DVD. Maybe a tag will be added. Don't know what is left, tbhayley. Certainly an ECW match will make the cut too. It's a given.

I've seen Foley's work in Japan. It's nuts. Can't recall any specific dates since I've viewed them here and there a bit ago, but if you like Foley or Death matches, then they're right up your alley.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I know Mankind/Taker from Survivor Series '96 is on the Survivor Series Anthology but that might not stop them from putting it on the Foley set. Or maybe the No Holds Barred Match they had on Raw in December that year. They should have at least one Undertaker match because he's one of his greatest opponent's ever imo.

This match isn't as good as their PPV matches in 96 & 97 but could be a rare addition to the DVD:

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It would be scandalous - SCANDALOUS I say - if the 1998 HIAC match doesn't make it to the DVD. Granted it's on loads of other DVDs and I must've seen it about 746 times, but not putting it on a career retrospective of Foley's career would be like not including Hogan vs. Andre on a Best Of Hogan DVD.

There's some good moments from his death matches in Japan. I've seen the whole of the KOTDM tourney and the matches bored me. There's a decent one with him tagging with The Headhunters against Funk, Leatherface and Nakamaki and a super singles bout with Funk with some iconic moments (the flaming branding iron just inches from Foley's face is an awesome visual) but I don't really see the appeal of most of his Japan stuff, except if you just love rampant garbage wrestling, the odd bump and explosions. Pales in comparison to his other stuff.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Okay, I think I know why I wasn't as high on Del Rio/Show as people seem to be. I don't think I watched the full match. The version I watched is only like 9 minutes long. It goes to commercial and comes back to the KO punch and the finish. Didn't see the barricade spot I've heard people mention or what happened with the second table.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Ah right, the Survivor Series match needs to be on a "set". I forgot since I own the RAW with the No Holds Barred match already that it still isn't on a DVD set, haha. I'm plenty down for one or two Undertaker matches to be added. He is his best opponent. No doubt.

For some reason I have a feeling his tag team championship win with Al Snow will make it. Perhaps it is wishful thinking. I want this chalk full of gems.

Yeah, Foley's deathmatches from Japan aren't special. They're fun enough for a look to see how he got so infamous over there.

TORNADO match.

I recall myself and Brye pimping that match. It's quality.
