Anybody know what that big box includes with Mick Foley’s Greatest Hits And Misses?? Don’t remember ever seeing that before. Is it a UK exclusive??

Oh boy a Triple H vs Alex Wright match, hardly should that ever make the cut as best of WCW ppv matches.

I would love to see the artwork of WWE Survivor Series 2013 dvd from inside the dvd case.

While not a technical masterpiece, by any stretch of the imagination, in very happy at the inclusion of Macho Man v Rodzilla. That is Mach’s last WCW ppv appearance… And pretty much the last time we so him looking so boss.

The two biggest omissions are Luger/Flair Wrestlewar 90 and Vader/Sting strap match Super Brawl 93. It’s pretty disappointing not to see either included here as I’ve never seen either but obviously heard great things about both. On the hand I’m very happy to see Vader/Cactus and Savage/DDP make it as I’ve wanted to own a physical copy of those for a long time. The amount of repeats on practically every release is making me question if it’ll be worth it to continue to buy these after the network debuts.

I am really surprised that The Giant (that’s Big Show for you youngsters) isn’t on here at all. He is in WWE currently after all. After there still store exclusives planned or is this it? Maybe he’s on that if so.

Alex Wright is a nice surprise, also. He almost never appears on these things.

The extras are highly insulting other than the thunderdome match. Not buying!

And I’m sick of this comment moderation.

None of the three Hogan/Sting matches surprises me. Fall Brawl 1999 is the only unreleased one. Why is Hogan on the cover but only has two matches, one of which isn’t exactly his greatest moment? I thought for sure that Hogan/Flair from BATB 1994 would be on here.

I’m really surprised at how much late 80s/early 90s stuff is on here when you consider that WCW didn’t even have a PPV every month until 1997. I guess Rodman is on there because he’s in the news right now. At least all his matches have been released.

BTW why are there two special referee matches on this?

Thinking about getting blu-ray releases instead of DVDs. How does the picture quality compare for wrestling footage from the 80s/90s on the two formats?

SD footage on Blu-ray looks slightly better and more crisp compared to DVD because the footage is uncompressed. DVD bitrate only allows 10 Mbps whereas Blu-ray is 40 Mbps.

But now they have video compressions like MPEG-4 AVC which use half the size of MPEG2 and retains the same quality.

It seems like getting already released matches onto blu-ray is an important objective here, while having a decent selection of unreleased matches. So far a significant portion of those matches are on this set and this is only volume one.

Skimpy. But I’ll get it for the Thunderdome match. NWA ’89 was classic because of the four guys in that match, and Steamboat.

That’s it? What a joke!
