I have a question regarding WM DVD's. Now, the Tagged Classic versions are the VHS released converted to DVD, and have stuff missing (video packages, interviews etc) that are in the Anthology versions. However, this isn't the case for all of them, just some of the early ones. I want to know though, which ones exactly are missing stuff? WM 1 and 2 I know, I'm unsure about 3 & 4 and anything after that though.

RAW 2/14/05
Randy Orton vs. Christian

This match is fucking great. You could tell, even all those years ago, that these two have awesome chemistry. I remember watching this when it aired live, before I paid attention to star ratings and it is just as good as the day I first watched it. Christian in full on heel mode with Tomko at his side, while Orton was in the midst of his first failed babyface run. Orton does a great job selling all of Christian's offense, and such a beautiful sequence of counters at the finish. Pretty much all of what made their run of matches in 2011 great.

***3/4

2/19/07
Money In The Bank Qualifying Match
Edge vs. Rob Van Dam

This is another match I just really love. I was so happy when I found out it was on Edge's first DVD release. ***1/2

So, after much procrasinating, I finally decided to give the WM XII Ironman a watch, just so I could move on with my mini-project here. Not going to give my rating away, but let me say this: It's one of the harder matches I ever had to rate. It has it's big moments and spots, but most of the time it's all restholds and No-selling by Bret.

Picked up Elimination Chamber 2012 today, gonna drop a review of that tomorrow, only 6 matches, so shouldn't take me that long. Not a very good show on the first watch, let's see how it holds up a fe weeks later in great quality ?

Last note, I have 60 dollars CDN left on a pre-paid credit card, and I'm gonna buy some DVDs. My collection SEVERELY lacks OOP DVDs so I might buy the Ringleader's box set, but I'm not sure. Anybody care to recommend 60 dollars worth of DVD's to me ?

I re-watched Undertaker/Hunter again from last year, and it's 5-star all the way. What a match! Feels incredible.

Agreed. A lot of the smarks didn't like it but I enjoyed it a lot as well. If not a 5 star match def 4 stars or higher.

Got WM 27 on Bluray the other day and watched Undertaker/HHH too. Nice to see it in HD quality, shame about the entrance music editing . Still thought it was just as awesome as I did on a second watch (didn't enjoy it watching it live though lol).

Just ordered WM 28 . Jut gotta try and not have super high expectations for the HIAC match otherwise I might be disappointed. Hopefully it'll be like HBK/Undertaker and I'll adore the rematch even more.

Default Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I just finished watching The Epic Journey Of The Rock Blu Ray, so here are a few thoughts.

First of all, the documentary is great. Finally, The Rock got a doc that does his career justice. If anything, it could've been longer but at two hours it's good stuff.

Positives:
Very little focus on Hollywood career. In two hours, perhaps ten minutes at the most is used to talk about his movie career in any sort of depth. This is great because the bulk of the doc focuses on his wrestling career. 10 minutes into it and we're already at his debut in 1996.

Honesty from everyone; Rock and Triple H are fairly open about having personal and professional tension as they both scratched and clawed their way to the top. But it was nice to hear Rock say that even though they both had big egos, once they got inside the ring they checked them at the door and trusted each other. Classy stuff.

They didn't shy away from talking about the fans booing The Rock in 2002 because he kept leaving to make movies. WWE and John Cena should watch this and see how well it can work if you embrace the negativity and use it as a vehicle for change. PLUS, we get some off-air footage after Summerslam 2002 of Rocky trying to talk and being booed and then saying singalong with The Rock is over, effectively ushering in his heel turn.

The talking heads - WWE didn't go crazy with too many people talking but the people they did choose are effective. We got interesting new stuff from Vince, Foley, Austin, Pat Patterson, ex-wife Dani, his mother, Cena, Punk, Jericho,Jim Ross, Warren Sapp. Good idea to have the folks who were closest to him during his WWE stint. Especially the ones who were with him every day during the peak of the Attitude Era.

Rock's reasons for staying away for 7 years - if you can't listen to what he says and realise that it makes absolute sense then I think you're a fool. Rock reached a point where he was doing more and more films, so he decided that if he was going to make it then he wanted to do it on his own through hard work. It may have ended up being 7 years, but at least we didn't get Rocky popping up every 6 months promoting a movie. He got himself to a level of movie stardom where he was secure so then he could come back without HAVING to promote a film. Makes sense to me.

Negatives:
I know Cena was talking in kayfabe, but the end where he's talking about Rock being great but having a bad message just annoyed me a little. I know they used this DVD to further hype their match, but I didn't need any in-character bullshit here.

Not long enough!

So yeah, the documentary was brilliant. I could sit and watch it again no problem.

Match listing is pretty great too; obviously you can't please everyone but when his last DVD set came out I was gutted that they hadn't included the ladder match with Triple H from 1998 or the triple threat cage match from Breakdown 1998. Well, they're both here and it really adds to the package.
The match vs Austin at Backlash is great too, and much better than their Wrestlemania 15 encounter. The I Quit match with Mankind is also a relevant addition as they talk about it a fair bit in the doc.

Disc Two has some gems too; I'm glad they put on the Rock Concert II because I find that one funnier than the first. That shit with Gillberg kills me every time, especially Jerry Lawler bursting out into laughter when he comes out. The 2002 matches against Flair and Lesnar are great because you can see some of the fan backlash that was prominent at the time.
No Way Out vs Hogan in 2003 I could've done without, but the epic People's Elbow is always funny to see. Rock was gold during the match. Then of course it's all capped off with the stuff from last year which includes his return (still get goosebumps watching it), his challenge to Cena, his birthday, and his return match at Survivor Series. Throw in his promo from after the show and we have a great set of stuff!

Highly recommended.
