This maybe a bad question, but will there be a chance of a match from the released ‘Tagged Classic Summerslam92’ of Shawn Michaels Vs Rick Martel?

We also need matches that are only available in the Tagged classics DVD’s now!

Also released on the Summerslam anthology discs so wrong criteria for this new collection. Decent match though, as were most at Wembley Stadium!

Also on The Network. I realize not everyone is a subscriber but also realize that they won’t release things that are on the Network (w/few exceptions so far being the NXT sets, upcoming WWE24 Collection set) bc one of their priorities is to continue and increase Network business/revenue. In order to do that they’re offering it for “only $9.99 and first month free for new subscribers” as they love to constantly remind everyone lol!

Unreleased sets will consist of previously unreleased material so if anything’s been released before – doesn’t matter where, when or how rare it is now – it’s probably not going to be on these unreleased sets.

Anyone think that Brawler match was suppose to be Bret. 6 days after Montreal.

Mike Poulin
WDN Reader
Mike Poulin

No Brawler won a battle royal dark match at the 9/21/97 MSG Raw show that set up the match for the WWF Title at the next MSG. So had the incident in Montral not happened it would’ve been Bret vs Brawler for the title at that show.

Does anyone know the reasoning behind why they had the Brooklyn Brawler this Battle Royal win and title shot though, even on a house show? Were they planning on a little TV push for him and were just testing the waters here? Or was it just a bit of fun for New York crowds? Have to say, I didn’t realise was still on the roster as the Brawler in late 1997. I always think of him as an early 90s guy apart from his sporadic appearances when he was an agent in the 2000s.

Anan
WDN Reader
Anan

Only reasons I can think of and make any logical sense are:
1. To reward him for his years of service
2. He’s a NYer or is billed from being from NY specifically I believe Brooklyn as his name is the Brooklyn Brawler and since the Battle Royal winner gets the WWF title shot at NY’s most famous arena, MSG, they gave him the win.
3. To try and attempt getting a cheap pop in MSG by having the NY born, raised Brooklyn Brawler the world title match.

Good call on that,imagine that day,ah hey Shawn you got the Brooklyn brawler tonight,thanks pal

Steve Lombardi seriously has had a shot at the WWF title!? -lol- I can’t wait to see Shawn kick the shyt out of that “brawler” from Brooklyn. he he he It will be too sweeeet to ad another match to one of the all time greatest feuds in history, with the triple threat match against Jericho, putting the Animal in there in the middle will be great to see what happens. Once again, would have been cream of the crop to have it on the Blu-brand. Interesting combination of Diesel, HBK and the Deadman in the 6-man elimination match.. Nice… Read more »

The match went like 15 minutes. Brawler got the title shot by winning a battle royal at the previous MSG show. I have this match already as a hand held of it exists.

Just a question. I thought most house shows were not filmed, but the matches above are from house shows, no? Are some of these from Coliseum Video releases?

Mike Poulin
WDN Reader
Mike Poulin

Or Dark Matches and segments from Tapings that didn’t air and some house shows in those days were televised

Anan

Could be comprised of both. As far as I know some (idk about most) house shows are filmed by WWE. Some aren’t. That said, if these aren’t Coliseum Video, Dark Matches/segments, which if they were either, they’re typically labeled as such, then they’re probably fan cam stuff which typically have that label for the content that is fan cam. Regarding the list, cannot wait for the whole list but must say great 1st match picks here! Always loved Rockers vs Orient Express matches. The one that typically stands out in my mind is their opening match from RR 90 or… Read more »

Most house shows were not filmed. All matches and segments at TV tapings were filmed, but not all were taped to air on TV or Coliseum Video.

Anan

Is it safe to say that the old WWF back in the day filmed all the many times they ran shows at the Boston Garden, Toronto Maple Leaf Garden, Philadelphia Spectrum, etc/everywhere else they ran shows? Don’t mean MSG or Nassau Coliseum or places like that. If the answer is yes, would love to see these released.

RabidHeat

House shows were sometimes filmed, as we know from the Attitude Era Vol. 3 and MSG sets, although often on one camera and the cameraman would just walk around the ring.

I can’t wait for this!

I hope this includes the match with Hunter at the October 22nd, 1996 Superstars taping. This matched closed the first WWE event I ever attended. Fingers crossed!

The date of the Shawn Vader match is September 24, 1996.

Good picks so far. Would love some matches with either Bret, Bulldog or Mankind. Dont wont too many jobber matches.

I can see Mick Foley getting his own unreleased set one day. If so they might end up saving Foley matches to fill up that set. HHH is inevitable to get an unreleased set of his own day as is probably Stone Cold. Kurt Angle, Rock, Flair, Jericho might get an unreleased set on them. Hoping Kane, Sting and Taker get one someday.

I will have to pass on the HBK set.Hopefully one day they will do a unreleased set of WCW matches from house shows. I will pick up the new Divas set though

Did WCW even film those in the way that WWE did though?

Anan
WDN Reader
Anan

Gonna venture to guess no. Idk who’s production values, including film, in and out of the pro wrestling or sports and entertainment business(es) come close let alone compare to WWE’s. The product quality may be lacking nowadays depending on who’s opinion you get. But their production quality has not. In fact if anything it’s probably gotten bigger and better. Anyone who worked, has worked, or knows about WWE praises their production. Rightfully so.

RabidHeat
WDN Reader
RabidHeat

Yeah, well I think that’s the reason why a WCW Unreleased set has never even been on the fan surveys; I don’t think house show footage exists. WWE know that WCW content sells big and I think it would’ve already been released or at least mentioned in a survey by now if it was even possible.

Anan
WDN Reader
Anan

The only way I can remotely see any WCW unreleased content being released at all if it ever is, is if they did unreleased sets on Ric Flair and Sting as those are the only two longtime WCW talents who I can see getting unreleased sets if WWE decides to release unreleased sets on them. Flair maybe more likely of the two bc he’s such a beloved respected legend who’s looked up to by so many including HHH – who may get an unreleased set himself one day for obvious reasons – and by some talents wrestling today in and… Read more »
