Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Sweet, thanks. I'll have to check it out. I love the DVD sets that include docs, but most seem to just be matches. I love the HBK DVD set that included a doc (Heartbreak & Triumph?).

Yeah, I really only check out DVDs that include Docs and good extras. I've usually seen most of the matches featured on the sets, so they're almost an afterthought.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

If there's one thing I've noticed while watching this PPV (RR04), it's that everything feels more real compared to the artificial feel that goes along with WWE today imo. I don't know if that's to do with the investment in the characters combined with the experience level of the talent or because the overall presentation wasn't so clean back then. I don't know. But the video package for the Rumble match itself, when you compare it to the ones from today it's shocking how big of a difference there is.

As an aside, holy fuck at that extra of HHH/HBK backstage after their match. Brutal. Absolutely brutal.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Same here. The only reason I bought the HBK/Hart rivalry DVD was for the doc/interview. Couldn't care less about the matches. I mean, who hasn't seen the Iron Man? It has been on tons of different DVDs already it seems.

That was supposed to be the first in the series. But I guess they thought Rock and Austin DVDs along with Hart/Michaels in the same room would be bigger.

I hope to see this in the next year, 4 discs.

1. Documentary like Rock/Cena. They have a lot of footage for Rock and Austin backstage like they showed in the Mania of WM.

2. Interview like Bret and Shawn talking about the program. Rock/Austin/JR.

3. Matches and segments in order, like Rock/Cena.

4. Extras with all the off-air segments, rare interviews etc.

So far, it was one of the best years ever for their DVDs, and you still got nWo(Hopefully objective, not rewriting history like typical WWE, Nash is there which should be great and I hope they can get Bischoff and Hogan)and Attitude Era DVDs in November. GOAT material.

I know what you mean. The old stuff have that gritty and raw (no pun intended) feeling to them, the Attitude Era specially. Today, it looks like a theater on some soap opera shit. For instance, it was goofy as fuck earlier this year when Kane crawled through the hole inside the ring to "drag" Zack Ryder to "hell" whereas in previous renditions of a similar segment, you don't get that super-fake feeling. Going HD and the improved technology making the quality clearer has done that IMO. That's also why over-the-top gimmicks are a rarity nowadays because it's hard to pull off something like the Deadman without getting laughed at.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I agree with you guys. Just look at this promo and the grittiness in its presentation. They made you feel the animosity, there were stakes in the main events (championships, competition, or blood) that you cared about

Hm, first time I've ever seen that promo, though I do think it's rather tame compared to this one from years earlier:



But I do agree Starbuck and Choke2Death. I think it's one of the things that has turned a lot of people away, but it's definitely made it a more kid friendly show, for better and/or worse.

And on the subject of video packages, I just watched a few from back then. HBK/HHH Bad Blood, Orton/HHH Unforgiven, EC 2002, Taker/Lesnar Unforgiven 02 and NM 02 and 03, and many others from that time period and all of them were fantastic. I think kick ass music is what's missing from a lot of video packages nowadays. Even one of the best in recent memory in Taker/HBK WM26 had music that greatly complimented the video. Of course it's not required as Punk/Cena from MITB last year shows, but it does add a lot imo.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Rhodes/Ryder from Superstars this week is ***1/4, imo. Really enjoyed it.

Gabriel/Tensai was actually pretty entertaining too. Gabriel worked around Tensai's size really well. Wish it went longer, but I like seeing Tensai as a more human character.
