I could care less about some arbitrary compilation, just let them put all the complete shows on Network and be done with it. That should suffice. And It’s also a more probable future development.

Not bad, except for the documentry, which was on the WCW dvd. Instead I’d rather see a 3 disc set which would allow the quality of the matches to speak for themselves. Still undecided though if I’d have a disc soley featuring the best of 7 between Magnum T.A and Nikita Koloff

WDN Reader

This one should be on next years Release Schedule! :)))

I would love to see a nwa dvd collection.Other great set would be a Vader collection and a unreleased road warrior set like they did wit hulk hogan.Nobody deserves a utimate dvd set more then andre the giant.A lot of young people didnt get to see how great he was.A list of matches i would like to see.Stan hansen,ernie ladd,black jack mulligan,kamala,king kong bundy,jhon studd,jerry blackwell,utimate warrior,and hulk hogan when hogan was the bad guy.This would sell would wide,because he had fans all over the world

WDN Reader
I don’t know about the WCW stuff. I’d cut out the WCW portion of the documentary since whatever would be said about it would miror what was said in The Rise And Fall OF WCW documentary, Hell, the whole WCW chapter of this proposed documentuary might consist of recycled material from Rise And Fall since WWE’s got a habit of recycling stuff. Just my opinion. You should od fantasy concepts on Vader, Macho Man and Paul Bearer/Percy Pringle. They deserve a documentary set along with HOF Inductions themselves. Just wish the HOF Induction and documentary sets on Savage on Paul/Percy… Read more »

Another great fantasy concept. I always look forward to this and Coliseum Corner. I was thinking, if WWE did something like WWE Coliseum Video Fan Favorite Matches, a 3 disc 2 disc blu-ray set hosted by Sean Mooney where fans on the facebook page and other social media outlets request matches from the Fan favorite time period 1989-1995, I think a lot of hidden gems would be used for the set.

WDN Reader

I’d actually prefer they release every Coliseum Video on DVD first and then release a set containing previously unreleased matches that were voted by fans to make the cut.

WDN Reader

I really don’t want to see all the Coliseum Videos released to DVD. But, I’d love it if they put together a 3-DVD set of “Lost Coliseum Classics” featuring the best unreleased to DVD Coliseum matches.

This looks really really cool.

What is the significance of “Sting vs. Bob Emory NWA World Championship Wrestling • January 30, 1988” though?
