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.
