Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That Attitude Era segment/match list looks promising. Nothing is edited/watered down?

The huge success of WWE's CM Punk DVD and Blu-ray title, CM Punk- Best in the World, has meant that the WWE are planning to feature a follow on DVD set for 2014 with up to date stories and further detail into Punk's success.
WrestlingInc. F4W Newsletter stated this as well.

Hm, too soon? What else can they do with it? Unless they have huge plans for Punk in the next two years.






best.

My guess is that they want him to be the company's torch bearer for the next 5-7 years and are trying to entice him in any way possible not to retire after his current deal ends. This enticement includes all manner of DVDs, promotion, likely going over The Rock and/or Lesnar at some point, wrist-slapping after cold-cocking fans, etc. There is a dearth of genuine superstars under 35 in the company and they are going to do whatever they can to milk the ones they have until a new generation of talent arises (if it ever does).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Randy Orton vs Hulk Hogan (SummerSlam 2006) - **3/4
- Pretty average match. Hogan is on the offense far too much and works as the heel for no real reason with constant dirty tactics. He also looks like he can barely move which leads to Orton carrying the match despite selling for the majority of the 11 minutes it lasts. Crowd is well into the match since it's Hogan after all. After taking an RKO and getting his foot on the rope (a split second after the third count making Orton the technical winner!), Hogan hulks up and wins with his own variation of the "five moves of doom". I really don't understand why he needed to win this at all. But yeah, it just adds to Orton's legacy at only 32 as he has wrestled everyone there is to wrestle from the time he's been around except Stone Cold and he's done everything else that can be done in the business. And his haters still act like him being directionless in the past year means anything in comparison to his excellent run from 2003-2009.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Hogan had hip surgery like RIGHT before that match. A lot of us wondered if he would even be able to work the match. Best thing about that program was the awful Orton Knows Best segment on RAW.

Rated RKO couldn't have come sooner for Randy in 2006. He was doing shit-all the moment he came back to RAW from his suspension. Then again, I guess that's fair.

It's good. I liked it. Covered most ground that you figured they would have. Including the Lita affair (seems to be a hot topic due to it's controversy)

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Attitude era DVD made Me Nostalgic,Went Back and watched Judgement day 1998 Main Event.

Was a Decent Match,With Austin being the Referee.What Made The Attitude era stand-out was Its unpredictability.There Was An uncertainty To the ending of this match and that's what made that Era So successful.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Summerslam 1997 - WWF Championship:
The Undertaker(c) vs Bret Hart ~ **3/4

One Night Only - WWF Championship:
Bret Hart(c) vs The Undertaker ~ **3/4


These guys really don't know how to work that well against each other. Their matches go WAY too long, Bret works on Taker's legs for the vast majority only for it to never come back into play down the line, and things never really pick up during the matches. It's probably my biggest disappointment with two great, popular workers duking it out. Undertaker feeds off of Shawn much better. And Austin for Hart. Matches like this are why I can see some people had flaws with Hart's offense. Never been crazy about these matches.
