Again, only 3?! I wish we could vote for more. If they’re going to do a 30 year wrestlemania 3, I hope they’re going to talk to Hogan. There’s more than 3 that I want to see. Goldberg, true story of summerslam, wrestlemania 3, women’s video(I hope they’re going to document sable and talk to her), vince vs. bischoff, I’d like to see a sitdown rivalry interview with flair and bischoff. I still want to see documentaries on arn Anderson, demolition, rick rude. They could do a best of hall of fame set, with all the hall of fames and… Read more »

WWE, if you read any of this: PLEASE note that at least 97 % of all the fans that has voted for the KURT ANGLE release, is actually almost only because we all wish more then anything for an extensive DOCUMENTARY biography/compilation that is very long overdue. Please hire back Kurt Angle.

I think a pre=WWE set would be nice if WWE could obtain the footage on talents that have spent years all the world wrestling before finally getting to WWE. A lot of these names are currently on or came up to the main roster through NXT. It’ll be a nice precursor to a documentary should one be done on said talent(s) and a nice way of seeing their beginnings because unless WWE acquires the libraries of these promotions, these pre-WWE careers won’t be seen on the WWE Network. However, the Daniel Bryan and I think the CM Punk documentaries proved… Read more »

Nice final list of matches for the Hardcore set. Pleased the Blackman/Shane match from Summerslam’s on here. Wonder what will make it onto the blu ray exclusives. Possible sets: – Docs on Kane, Bruno, Goldberg. I really hope they get Taker on the Kane doc as their careers have been intertwined. kane was created basically because of The Undertaker. – Women’s Revolution – Survival Mode: MUST get Taker to comment here as he was one of the guys to carry the company through that time. – Alberto Del Rio doc? Good, but don’t know if it’s the right time. Jake… Read more »

i’d like to see joey styles do the sit down interviews for the tazz/sabu and raven/tommy dreamer rivalries

Styles would be a great choice for the ECW rivalries. But so would the best talker in the biz today, Paul Heyman who makes anything look good just by talking, the owner of ECW. Or hell, get em both to do it lol!

Bruno Sammartino and Bill Goldberg documentaries!!! yes! Yes! YES!

I want to strangle anyone who voted for Top Celebrity moments. This is Wrestling not the Hollywood Walk of Fame or some SNL skit.

Why is there not more votes for New Day? I voted for them, Kane and NXT Vol 2.

I love New Day. But new Day have not been in WWE long enough individually or collectively to really warrant a DVD. Between the three of them, how long have they been in WWE anyway? Yet talents like Christian, Kane have been in WWE a lot longer. Kane got a compilation set, Christian to my knowledge has not had a set done on him at all. My point is there’s names that are deserving of sets that should get done first, before New Day get theirs. They’re red hot now. But how knows how long they’ll be together? Will they… Read more »

There is still 15 or more matches to be revealed on the Final Listing! I hope for some more matches from Heat, Jakked, PPV’s and more multi-man matches. This is one of the most anticipated releases for me ever.

Disappointing matches except for the Jakked one. I was hoping for some of the battle royals and multi person matches such as WM2000,Unforgiven 2000,etc. Hopefully they will be on the final match listing.

The only ones of the new survey I wanted were Unreleased 1986-1995,Goldberg, and Kane which I all voted for. Yesterdays choices were way better.

“The Best of ’97” would be a dream come true for me. That was my year, and it was a hell of year to be a fan.

“SummerSlam turns 30 in 2017”. I’m begging someone to teach WWE how to count. The first SummerSlam was in 1988. That means it turns 30 in 2018. This is simple 2nd grade math.

Tom

Dude, you need to go back to school then. You have the year that it started in. You have to count the one that occurred in 1988 and therefore, if you count with your fingers, then yes in 2017 Summerslam will air its 30th one and therefore it will be the 30th anniversary.

LP1
WDN Reader

Wow. The ignorance level is at an all time high today. I’m not talking about annual events. I’m relaying what WWE said about SummerSlam “turning” 30. In 1988, SummerSlam did not “turn 1”. You don’t celebrate your 1st anniversary on the day you get married. You don’t celebrate your 1st birthday on the very day you’re born. Yes 2017 will be the 30th annual SummerSlam event, but it’s not “turning 30” years old. SummerSlam ’88 was not the first anniversary of SummerSlam. Just like WrestleMania 1 was not the first anniversary of WrestleMania. If my wife gave birth to my… Read more »

Which means the 30th SummerSlam is in 2017, Einstein

LP1
WDN Reader

Einstein you say? Interesting. But anyway, the 30th event and “turning 30” are 2 different things. WWE has never learned the differennce between annual and anniversary. If someone was born in 1988, they turn 30 in 2018. The year they’re born does not count as their 1st birthday. I appreciate the Einstein comment though.

CampWWEr

And you never learned how to spell “difference”. I stand by my Einstein remark

The best example of someone without an argument, they focus on things, like a typo, to distract from the fact they no longer have anything productive to add to the conversation.

Kids, kids, kids. Stop fighting. I think we can all agree. As long as the Wrestlemania 10 Ladder match is on it, that is all that matters!

I think they mean 2017 will be the 30th SummerSlam event, not the actual 30 years since the first event. Kind of like Wrestlemania 30 in 2014 instead of 2015.
