Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

While we are on the topic of VHS tapes, goddamit I had so many when I was younger. I use to record almsot every damn thing as a kid. I even have (or should I say had, my freaking dad re-taped all my damn wrestling!!!) Booker T vs Goldust from Heat whatever year it was, my guess would be 2001.

I had an episode of SD too. I didn't get the channel for SD (until about 2002 cause that's when I recall actually watching SD with my cable box) but somehow the local VHS store used to have them on tape. I can't remember the episode too well but from what I recall it was something to do with Steph and HHH and Shane in the ring cutting a promo. I'm guessing 2001 again.

But holy shit, I taped every damn RAW as a kid. I even taped a couple shows in 2006 as well (that's when I started re-watching). But they're all gone sadly

Damn, I may be the youngest poster here but I've been watching wrestling since I was in diapers. It feels good to be this young and remember moments such as DX throwing Foley and Funk off the stage, Rock throwing Austin over the bridge, Kane and Taker inferno match and so much other fucking moments lol. I wish I had my tapes

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Might take you up on that, actually.

I also want to convert them all to DVD at some point.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It's a job I know I can do well.

You should start putting some to DVD asap. Who knows how long it will take you to complete your entire collection.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Fresh off the heels of my Starrcade DVD review...

WWE Presents... The Triumph & Tragedy of World Class Championship Wrestling

Quick Thoughts: A solid DVD, this wasn't the best recollection of how things actually went down in World Class, but if you never knew about the promotion then this still does a good job of delivering the story to you. Most of the matches themselves are nothing special (This is the midsouth territory after all) but the Cage Match between Flair/Kevin still holds up.


Ricky Starr vs. Duke Keomuka (X/X/X)- ***
King Kong Bundy vs. Fritz Von Erich (7/14/82)- *
Ric Flair vs. Kerry Von Erich (12/25/82)- ****+
Parsons, Kevin V Erich & David V Erich vs. Rogers, Hayes & Gordy (X/X/X)- ***
Iceman Parsons vs. Buddy Rogers (6/17/83)- *1/4
The Fabulous Freebirds vs. The Von Erichs (5/6/84)- *
Chris Adams & Sunshine vs. Jimmy Garvin & Precious (5/6/84)- *
The Great Kabuki vs. Kamala (5/6/84)- DUD
The Fantastics vs. The Midnight Express (5/5/85)- **
Chris Adams vs. Kevin Von Erich (7/21/85)- **3/4
Bruiser Brody & The Missing Link vs. One Man Gang & Rick Rude (10/X/86)- **
Bruiser Brody vs. Abdullah the Butcher (10/12/86)- DUD

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

The documentary > the matches. There is a more gritty WCCW doc called Heroes of World Class. If you haven't seen it I reccomend it.

You reviewed the Starrcade set, eh. What did you think of Windham/Pillman vs Steamboat/Douglas? Best match on the set, imo. Tied w/Magnum vs Tully.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Hey what do you guys think of Shawn Michaels vs Chris Benoit in 2004 before Wrestlemania 20?

For me it's a really entertaining TV main event with some nice back and forth. One of those matches that you don't want to see end because you're so caught up in the action.

Their title match in May is better. Both are great, though. I just don't remember much from this one (where HBK wins after HHH distracts Benoit) compared to that. ***3/4 IIRC.

And speaking of Raw matches, just came off watching another solid Raw tag match from 31/1/2005. HBK/Orton vs Flair/HHH. *** is my rating. I just don't get why in the world Snitsky and Kane main event the show AGAIN with their boring, uninteresting feud!

Youtube is dead, so I have to go for dailymotion instead. Part 1 and Part 2.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Eh. At least they tried to make Kane vs Snitsky feel like it was a feud worth time. I'll give them credit there. We don't get that now. Plus wasn't that the match where they jumped off the stage to end the show? and you can clearly hear them talking
