The match listing here is fine as i think there will be a Volume 2 for Best of MSG down the line and for those who want to gripe about rereleased matches yeah there’s going to be some of those on every set WWE puts out.But those are also the matches that people remember and maybe the person buying the DVD has children who are wrestling fans that haven’t had the chance to see these matches yet.

Really would’ve loved to have seen some old school tag team matches on there like Hart Foundation, British Bulldogs, Killer Bees, etc …

WDN Reader

Because nobody’s seen the matches from 1985 on. See, everyone lived close enough to MSG to travel to those events before 85 so no one wants to see those matches again. National TV, Pay Per View, no one watches those so we gotta show all those matches again

A massive disappointment. This could have been an exceptional set with some rarely seen house show matches like the ones that used to be on the MSG channel years ago. But as always they plunder the same matches seen multiple times on many DVD sets. I can’t fathom who in their right mind would pay for yet another copy of HBK-Razor, Hart-Hennig etc I had high hopes for this, but once again have been let down.

WDN Reader

Backlund vs. Patera was voted MOTY in the Observer, so that and boot camp, plus Del Rio vs. Punk in HD, are enough for me.

WDN Reader

Why the hell is Show vs. Cena @ WMXX on there… :-\

WDN Reader

This is what i was wishing they would do, but i think this is a very bad pick of mactches most anyway. Should of been HOUSESHOW matches only not ppv and matches already realesed on dvd.i will pass

WDN Reader

I’m really looking forward to this DVD, especially all of the old matches that I never seen before.

The high light of the dvd will be backland vs race,wwf vs nwa champions.I wish they would do the sets by decades.There are so many great matches that could have been put on here instead of the same old matches.I am still hopeing for a ultimate andra the giant collection

This listing isn’t too bad, I’ll get it. At least there are some unreleased matches on here.

WDN Reader
Just like every WWE DVD this is loaded with stuff they’ve put on DVD multiple times before. Koloff vs. Morales – History of the WWE Championship Sheik vs. Hogan – History of the WWE Championship, Superstars of the 80s, EVERY Hogan DVD Hogan & T vs. Piper and Orndorff – Hulk Anthology, WrestleMania HTM vs. Warrior – SummerSlam 88, Warrior DVD Hart vs. Perfect – SummerSlam 91, Bret Hart DVD, Perfect DVD Michaels vs. Ramon ladder match – this has been released every year since WWE started releasing DVDs. I have at least 6 copies of this match. 96 Survivor… Read more »

This is great and all, but they should have had at least one match from Summerslam 98 considering the big buildup to that event. Maybe Mankind ov The Outlaws, HHH vs Rock or the main event which was Taker vs Austin. I’d vote for Taker vs Austin since that was promoted by JR as being “The biggest main event in our business.”

Also would’ve liked to have seen Bret vs Owen from WM10 too.

Those missing matches aside, it’s still a great listing.
