I’m hoping for one Raw and one Raw only.

The Higher Power Revewl would be epic, now that someone has brought it up, I also want ( and I know this is probably a long shot!) But, the Christams episode of 1999! 🙂

Still hope we get the first Raw Roulette, there were some great matches & good comedy.

I hope the episode with The Rock’s “This Is Your Life” segment is on this, It’s not been released on Blu Ray and it’s a damn shame

Generally looking good, but I could’ve done without the January 4, 2010 episode. I already have the DX/JeriShow match on two Blu-Rays, and the opening/closing segments with Bret Hart are out there on Blu Ray too. I’d like to add my voice to those calling for the pre-WrestleMania 13 Raw. The cage match between Bret Hart and Sid was epic, and has never been released. The post-match angle with McMahon was a turning point in the company’s history, too. My only other request would be the April 18, 2005 episode from MSG, which featured the Triple H vs. Jim Ross… Read more »

Good article organizing everything about the Raw set that we know now. My thoughts on the unknowns: I’m guessing the KOTR 2008 show will be there. I don’t remember anything spectacular about the 2009 draft show. KOTR had a fun tournament, a good multiman main event and Barack and Hillary. This is definitely the type of thing they’d include. I can’t see many draft shows making the cut. Most memorable is the brand split draft and that’s doubtful as it has Vince of all people speaking of that Benoit guy positively. I know it breaks the 20 years rule slightly,… Read more »

I’m guessing the 20th Anniversary will be in the collection despite it being not a very good episode. I’m hoping the Higher Power Reveal episode will be included.

Found a whole bunch of dvds at Walmart packaged with a rumbler action figure. Titles include: Stone Cold 4 Disc, ECW Unrealeased Volume 1, Undertaker: The Streak and more.

I know we’ll likely get the first draft in 2002, but I wouldn’t mind a Draft Compilation or anthology. Another episode I wouldn’t mind is the RAW Family Reunion in 2006, main evented by John Cena vs Undertaker.

I wish they would add these:
Flag Match 97
Night after WM 14
Last Raw before WM 15
Night after Judgment Day 00/Undertaker returns
Night after WM 17
ECW join invasion
Rock challenges Hogan
2002 Draft
Trish vs Lita main event

Yeah, I hope the episode where The Rock challenges Hulk Hogan makes it on the RAW set too. I really don’t remember much from that show, but I like the nWo attack on The Rock in the ambulance.

As for recent episodes, the recent one where Lesnar first attacked Punk and the post WM28 show would be great additions.

Since this is a 20th Anniversary set, they likely won’t include episodes after January 2013.

As for the post-WM28 RAW, i don’t even know whats so memorable about that show besides Lesnar’s return and the crowd.

Crowd was still pretty great, but over-shadowed this year. The Rock had a memorable promo. I do think the night after Mania always provides great historical context.

I’m wondering what the Blu-ray extras will be with such a giant set. I hope they include even more behind the scenes footage from each Raw. I really have no idea what the Blu-ray extras could be, if they’re including any at all.
