I know people get tired of having a lot of matches from the Modern era,Which to me was from Hulkamania till Now.But who knows how much footage exists from the the beginning of WWE History to the early 80s.A lot of it is either weathered due to its age or the footage may no longer exist.I would love to see more matches from the early 80s on back,but who knows if most of it still exists.could be lost due to time

7 Landmark Moments That Deserved a Place in WWE's 50th Anniversary DVD Set

[…] WrestlingDVDNews.com has released full listings for the set. Unlike some other WWE productions, the documentary on the first disc is the clear draw here, being approximately three hours long. It appears to be as close to a “warts and all” production as you can get from WWE, with low points like the 1994 steroid distribution trial, Owen Hart’s death and the XFL’s failure all being covered.

Just for the 3 hours documentary, it’s a must buy!!! The matches is only repeats, I already have all of these!

WDN Reader

A point at which they very subtley mention the effects of the 2007 tragedy involving you know who, perhaps without mentioning any names, would show a refreshing and brave honest approach and give the documentary a comprehensive feel, but I’m not holding my breath.

WDN Reader
Unlike you, I’m not hoping for any Benoit footage. My opinion aside, I do wonder if it’s WWE that is withholding the footage or if it’s lawyers and family members. We have seen Benoit on random things here and there, which is odd to me. Why give him one match a year, but ignore him on all other accounts? I say put him in or don’t. Is it because with certain sets he really was part of their history like War Games that he gets to be put in??? Who really knows? Must be the sets that are essential to… Read more »

Nancy Benoit’s sister did an interview couple months back and she discussed about WWE distancing and not mentioning Benoit on programming and home video realses, the reason being is out of respect to her parents, Nancy and Daniel. She said they have not gotten over the tragedy and absolutely despise Chris and to this day have not and likely ever get answers to “why” Benoit did what he did. So don’t expect them to ever release any sort of documentary with discussions about Chris unless Nancy’s family approves. I think including matches is fine when there are other superstars involved… Read more »

If you guys are so concerned about the families you’d realize that part of the grieving process is acceptance. As a result, once they hit that stage, and you have to believe that in spite of one amateurish media interview they have, they’d be okay with this sort of thing. In reality, the only ones who are truly suffering at this point are Benoit’s surviving kids who now have not only had to lose their father, but also the royalty payments they so richly deserve. Maybe the know-it-alls who continue to say that it’s wrong really need to take an… Read more »

Of course you’re all for Benoit making a return to DVDs and Classics on Demand… He didn’t murder anyone in your family!

WDN Reader
Well, if he did, at least WWE would make it up to me by removing him from their footage. Because that’s pretty much the same thing as having that family member alive again. It’s almost as though it never happened. And, let’s not forget that pretending that person doesn’t exist is certainly the way to cope. Wait, if all of that was true, why are we even having this discussion? Back to reality… If anyone wants to play the family card, what about the fact that by not including him in Classics on Demand and DVDs, the surviving family members… Read more »
