Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
I made a very nice discovery today: I picked up the keepcase version of "The Twisted, Disturbed Life of Kane," something I always wanted.
I remember when this set was announced, I was really excited, because I'm a fan of Kane and I loved the match listing. To me, it's the perfect combination of old classics and unexpected TV gems, which not a lot of sets incorporate.
But when it was released, I was disappointed to see it was packaged in cheap cardboard, that, according to everyone, scratched up the discs. I'm very ocd about packaging, so despite wanting the set, I didn't buy it.
Then I heard about how Walmart had released it in a keepcase, and I was excited. Only problem is, I'm nowhere near a Walmart. Not even close. Nor did I see any listing for it on ebay.
But today, somehow I found it brand new at FYE for $6.99, and I couldn't be happier.
I don't own the first two UT/Kane matches, so that's enough for me. But the first match against Mankind, the Chain match and Title vs. Title match against Triple H, the cage match against RVD, BOTH matches against Shane (the Ambulance is a favorite), his first match against HBK, the two gimmick matches against Edge from their 2005 feud, a TV match against Umaga, his first match against Booker T, and often forgotten champion vs. champion match from 2008 against Undertaker.
This is an awesome set, and finding the version I wanted, brand new, in good condition, for $7, I'm ridiculously excited.
