I hope not. When Taker leaves (if he hasnt already) he deserves to be spotlighted and not leave in a group.

It kinda pisses me off that the Taker DVD has a documantary as I might have to buy it even though I own nearly all of the matches on the set.

If he gets to 25 they will release another set at 25-0 just like they did 15-0.

Plus, I'm still waiting for my extensive Taker documentary with him talking *out of character* about his career/life. That "This Is My Yard" doc. was too brief.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I have all the matches on disc, I'm mainly buying for the Bluray quality upgrade of the older ones. And the documentary. And the fact its about The Undertaker. Ok, I was sold on the set the moment I knew it was for Undertaker .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Hey, I'm currently attempting to watch everything from '97 forward (currently at WM15) - interested in having a brief recap of 93 to 97. Would you guys recommend Best of RAW - Seasons 1 & 2?

Watched Royal Rumble 2003, great fun show to watch.

Fun start watching Lesnar throw Big Show around the ring like hes a cruiserweight.
Steiner v HHH is a horrible wrestling match, but I always have fun watching Flair ringside and the crowd during this match.
Angle/Benoit was incredible, such a rewatchable match.

And the Royal Rumble was fun fun fun. Lesnar, Kane, Taker and Batista as the final four was not only fun but for once in a rumble believable that 4 monsters finally lasted to the end. The Jericho/Michaels stuff was awesome.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Not as excited about the 'Taker dvd as I think I should be. I know the documentary won't really feature him and just have a voiceover guy and other wrestlers discussing him. Looks brief as well by the amount of chapters there are.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I have to ask this question... Will disc four on the new "Streak" DVD potentially be the greatest disc (match-quality wise) of all time ? Think about it, we have 4 MOTY's on one disc, I don't think it gets any better than that.

If not, then what is ?





"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I recomend anybody to do what i am doing at the moment; go on to youtube and watch full shows of Superstars, more specifically the 2009-mid 2011 episodes. I guarantee that every so often you'll stumble across a great match between people you wouldn't really expect it from and it can provide some great entertainment. A perfect example would be the often highly-rated match between Masters and McIntyre in 2011 - Who would have expected them two to be so great? Or that 6-man tag team match that everybody loves with The Usos/Barretta vs. Kidd/Slater/Gabriel.

Some very good matches, with a lot of variety. There's also some gems from mid 2011-present but over time it's dwindeled down to the lower-midcard show, unfortunately (or in some cases, fortunately, as there are great matches still).

So that leads me t my question; What's your favourite match from Superstars? I can see Masters/McIntyre being a lot of people's favourite, but still. Mine personally would be the aforementioned 6 man tag team match, it really defied the formulaic tag team structure that the WWE has created over the past decade and has shown the world that there is real talent in the midcard. (Where the fuck is Barretta, by the way, dude was awesome).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Superstars used to have plenty of awesome little matches. Masters, McIntyre, Barretta, Knox etc were putting on at least one great match every week. Once Masters left I really lost interest in the show, but I check the taped matches every week to see if anything interests me. Rarely does unfortunately .
