Thanks. I give it a download later.

Austin's new doc is still the best for me. Had everything. He even had a cry.

Highspots bought the right to use the footage they didn't buy exclusive use of it. Ian sold off the IWA library with the company name a few years ago. WWE most likely paid Smartmarkvideo for the rights to the footage. Although I did find it strange that they gave credit to ROH for their footage but nothing was done in regards to the IWA, JCW footage they showed.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Since the topic of best documentaries was brought up what would you guys say are the Top 5-10 that WWE has produced? I have not seen Rock/Cena, Punk, Edge, or Orton's yet but I'd say [in no order] some of my favorites:

Rise & Fall Of ECW
Steve Austin: The Bottom Line...
History of the World Heavyweight Championship
Triumph & Tragedy of WCCW
Bret Hart: The Best There Is...
Jake Roberts: Pick Your Poison
Ric Flair & The Four Horsemen
Ric Flair: The Definitive Collection
The Mania of WrestleMania
Shawn Michaels: Heartbreak & Triumph


Much gratitude to

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Just watched the Punk doc, I wasn't a fan before but now......I'm still not. He seemed very bitter than his career isn't further than he thinks it should be. It was the first time I saw the pipe bomb speech in full and I kinda chuckled when his mic got cut. I just hate anyone who shoots on the business on live tv, it just seems like a wcw thing aka (russo, goldust) and look what happen to them. I just can't relate to todays talent, they don't seem to have that x factor and punk is one those guys IMO. Maybe he needs to come out in a pepsi truck and hose cena and AJ.

Have you seen the Greatest Rivalries: HBK vs Bret doc?

Only ones I've seen from your list are the Flair Definitive Collection and HBK's Heartbreak & Triumph. I really need to check out the ECW DVD.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Knew I forgot a couple. Benoit would be up there with my favorites. Shame Eddie's was too short and a little disappointing.

Batista's was surprisingly good especially discussing his family.

Edit - I guess HBK/Hart counts. It's just a different interview style from the others. Good stuff nonetheless.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Eddie's could have been way better if they focused more on his wrestling career. Instead it was 10% wrestling and 90% drugs and alcohol problems. Which was a huge part of his life no doubt, but so was wrestling. At least his book filled in all the gaps, and I'd recommend everyone read it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The ECW one is top of the list for me, excellent storytelling, Heymans little monologue at the end almost had me applauding in my living room while shedding a tear, no wonder he got so many guys to 'drink the koolaid'.

The WCCW one is a good shout too, they dont hold back on the tragedies but do well to mix it with the awesome Freebirds stuff etc so its not too depressing a watch, sort of along the same lines would be the Road Warriors doc, Paul Ellering really makes that one and having the likes of Cornette on there doesnt hurt.
Jake Roberts one is great too, some of the extras are most interesting, such as the reason himself and Hogan never got their feud.

I rewatched the Shawn/Bret rivalries doc the other day its great stuff, only thing a bit flimsy about it is the thrown together footage between the interview, theres a couple moments where its hardly even relevant to the era theyre talking about, hopefully they improve that if they plan on more of a Rivalries series.

TBH my favourite WWE docs to watch nowadays are the LOW roundtables, cant get enough of those.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Wish they'd release the roundtable shows on DVD. They did a couple a few years back, then every now and then one might make a DVD/Bluray (like the NWO one being on the upcoming NWO Bluray), but they really should bring them all out. Would be awesome.
