The doc looks good… the matches on the other hand, I believe there is only 3 that may have not been ever released! But for the doc. I’ll buy!

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

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

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.

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!

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 »

Anyone think they will cover he WWF/WWE name change?

Why is the WWE Network not up and running already.What is so hard about making a 24 hour channel that you pay a monthly fee that shows everything they have in their library.

David
WDN Reader

First off they have to purpose it to networks, cable and satellite providers and its not easy because they likely will not approve a 24/7 channel with not but wrestling. It would have to take A LOT of convincing and a proper business proposal.

Last i heard, stations are turning it down, even for a monthly fee.

I’m happy with WWE Classics on Demand, they should just leave that.

Daniel, plz find out how long the Cena vs. Punk match chapter is.

It’s only my opinion, but History of the WWE without any full match from the 60s? One match from the 70s? I understand that many wrestling fans today can’t stand the wrestling style from the 60s to the 80s, but this is a history set. Okay, the documentary looks fine. But that’s it. If they release only the documentary without the matches, then I would buy it (a vanilla disc).

That King of the Ring Finals match from 96 between Austin and Jake Roberts sucks, the only good thing is promo afterwards, The first 4 matches are fine even though i will probably get sick for watching Hogan and Andre from WM 3 for the Billion Time (Sighs) but i get why its here, Disc 3 looks good and is the disc to watch if your a first time WWE DVD/Blu-ray Buyer, Documentary looks very intriguing and will be one to watch and have, Blu-ray Extras Suck though, why did Undertaker vs HBK from WM 25 had to be on… Read more »

WARNING: You may like that they don’t censor the F in WWF and that the Atttitude scratch logo is faded but that is all the novelties you will receive from this DVD/Blu Ray. Aside from the documentary which should be really interesting, the match and promo selection is a huge disappointment. You probably already have the Stone Cold – Mike Tyson confrontation unedited on the WWE Attitude DVD set from last year and if you can wait till next January, when they do their best of RAW-SmackDown set, then you should have CM Punk vs. John Cena from RAW last… Read more »

The Tyson and Austin Confrontation is not on the Attitude Era DVD/Blu-ray, Tyson Joins DX Segment is on the Attitude Era DVD, However the Tyson and Austin Confrontation is on Austin 3 disc Blu-ray Set that was released around 2011 but the only edit is the WWF Scratch logo being covered in the left hand corner by that big WWE Logo, so it will be unedited but not for the first time on DVD on this DVD!!

Damn computer. Anyway, I’m not looking forward to an hour of muted commentary every 15 seconds myself. Oh well.

Quite disappointed in the match content. I’ve basically stopped buying WWE DVDs because I don’t need to own the same matches over and over again. I’m sure the doc will be good though.

Ultimately it’s all about the documentary. I give props for including steroid scandal as well as the Owen situation. But they have both been mentioned in previous documentaries so it isn’t unheard of. Dumb to not include Benoit situation which changed the business for sure. They really should have covered wrestler deaths but understand why they didn’t. As far as the matched go…TERIBLE would be an understatement. They have Raw moments from Raw episodes that will be released three weeks following this release. I mean come on! How lazy can they be. They could have at least had alternate commentary!… Read more »

I wish the fans could choose which matches should be chosen since everything today is interactive. This should’ve been a 3 disc blu ray so the 50 years could be spread out a bit.

Also just wondering when the 2014 schedule will come out.
