I already have the Iron man and with the possible exception of Bret/Shawn '92.
It's on the Blu-Ray of their rivalries DVD. The only reason I bought that DVD on Blu-Ray is for this match. I was disappointed though they don't show Brets tantrum at the end.

I got to thinking though, in 97 this was a big match, but how many WWF fans hated Bret-HBK the way I don't care for Sheamus-Del Rio, for instance. Obviously their rivalry has stood the test of time, but I really hated HBKs sexy boy gimmick, and Bret Hart was borderline awkward in some of those promos. Just interesting to watch the evolution of professional wrestling.

But, man, what a great match. Say what you want, maybe outside of NWO and Stone Cold, this is the arguably the best thing to happen to pro wrestling.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

more random matches

Gurrerro/Rock 7/22/02: *** 1/4
Rock vs the Dudleyz table match: ** 1/2, commentary saved it
Benoit vs A Train No Mercy 2003: ** 3/4. A train was on offense far too long for my liking, ending was good though.
Lesnar/Show/Taker SD 8/28/03: *** 1/4. Pretty good match, bad ending though.

I kinda think it's changed with the advantage of the Internet and as you said the evolution of pro wrestling. To be fair though, you could really see the animosity between the two compared to the bs between Sheamus/ADR. Also, I liked that both of them were heels and therefore did douchy things to one another and we're acknowledged as being douchy. Compared to the faces trying justify Sheamus' grand theft auto.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

watched some random HHH vs Shamrock match with Chyna as the ref just now and it was good. Great commentary.

And I just remembered randomly how biased that Rise and Fall of WCW DVD as. Almost as bad as the Warrior one.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just started watching Summerslam 1997. Mankind vs HHH (steel cage) first match.

Mankind's theme song is scary,

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watched the new Rock/Cena doc last night. Wasn't planning to get it, but bah, someone I sell discs to in real life (not over the interwebs lol) wanted it so I downloaded it for him. My thoughts on it?

Pile. Of. Shit.

Seriously, its horrible. Half of it being about twitter and social media didn't help either lol. A shitty documentary for a shitty DVD based on a shitty feud between 2 shitty wrestlers. Awesome.
