Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watched disc 1 of 'The Best of Saturday Night's Main Event' and it was not as good as I expected it to be. It was entertaining and there no really bad matches. But match quality was generally rather average and nothing that takes it to a that next level. Still though the other discs may redeem it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Anyone order Used DVDs from GoHastings? 40% off sale Used DVD's.. $14 for Stone Cold 4 disk, Edge Decade of Decadence, MITB 2011, and TNA Ultimate Matches, sounds a little too good to be true?


Must Be Nice

You should probably check it out if you haven't.

Austin-Hart, Survivor Series, ****3/4

And, of course, you have the juggernaut that is WrestleMania 13 (only decent match on the card if I remember?). This is definitely the brawl of the two. (TANGENT: Funny to think about the contrast here in relation to other feuds. Angle/Lesnar. HBK/Bret even (The Screw Job was a hell of a brawl too!) A lot of great feuds have a lot of contrast between matches). But this match is just timeless for me, because everytime I watch it and Bret Hart has Stone Cold in the Sharpshooter, and the blood running down Austins face? That, to me, as nauseatingly cliche as I will be, is the definition of professional wrestling. The double-cross. The fact that Stone Cold was shot into the stratosphere pretty much because of this match. I have no problem giving this *****.
Austin's crimson mask defines Stone Cold's career and I mentioned that in my review. I agree with your assessment of their two classics.

Ratings for the Austin/Hart rivalry:

Kuwait 5/9/1996 - *** 1/4
South Africa 9/14/1996 - *** 3/4
Survivor Series 1996 - **** 3/4
WrestleMania 13 - *****
Revenge of the Taker 1997 - ****
Street Fight Raw 4/21/1997 - N/R, but fantastic segment
Canadian Stampede 1997 - **** 1/4


And just to throw it in there: Hart/Austin/Undertaker/Vader Final Four 1997 - **** 1/4


THIS CHRISTMAS
ALL I'M REALLY ASKING FOR IS YOU

I don't think his life could get any better. And he's more entertaining that that undead guy you like so much

Anyways, the backstage stuff interests me a great deal!
GOAT.

Good to know because they filmed so much material all over the world for over a year, to waste all that on a 45 minutes special would be a stupid move. Also agree on the backstage extras, there's a segment where Rock and Cena are talking about the WM28 match for 10-15 minutes each, probably a review which should be interesting. Then there's all the things on the road, a lot of it was in the video packages from Royal Rumble to Mania, I would love to see what they filmed in MSG before the Survivor Series PPV, they're always showing that pic of Rock in the ring looking at the set. The film cut version of the match should be great, they showed parts of it in the NBC special.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

^ Yep, looks like there should be some good stuff on there. I'm especially interested in seeing the film cut of the match. They've shown clips of the film cut of the Rock/Austin match from Wrestlemania 19 and it looks great. I wish they'd do more matches this way.

I wonder if there will be any comments from Rock or Cena about the now infamous promo notes on the wrist thing, or any comments on how they tried to purposely diminish Rock's popularity just to make Cena seem less hated and more on Rock's level.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Boy those chapter names really make the rivalry seem personal. Especially things like "Grilled Cheese" and "The Kidman Spot"

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It's not the doc, just the extras. The titles of the documentary:
Quote:
* After 7 Long Years
* A Year in the Making
* The People’s Champ
* The New Face of the WWE
* Social Media Warfare
* LockerRoom Noise
* Loyalty and Respect
* Let’s Go Cena – Cena Sucks
* Once in a Lifetime
Edit - I meant the cover in the DVD, on the disc sides. They should do more DVDs like that, not even a Bret/Shawn interview, just all the segments/matches and extras.

^Pictures aren't showing.

Wish the doc was longer than 45 mins.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

For the UK'ers, i have a free copy (i made a couple of extras just to make sure the files worked) of a 3-Disc DVD Set:

Greatest Rivalries: Kane vs Undertaker

Can't post exactly on what it contains as there are no menus, but after a quick flick it seems to include all the promos/matches from the beginning of the fued onwards, here is a cover:



Just PM me if anyone wants a copy (just UK 'cos of postage)
