    Which DVD are we talking about Hardcore Championship or Royal Rumble?

  2. Nah says:

    It’s exciting that people will buy a DVD that is lower quality than the entire WWE Network.

  3. Cherie Smith says:

    I gotta admit those do sound like pretty good choices lol

  4. Brad Attitude says:

    I wanna see the Harts vs The Quebecers, Shawn Michaels vs Undertaker, Dudley Boyz vs Edge & Christian, Chris Jericho vs The Rock and MNM vs The Hardys on the Histiry of the Royal Rumble bluray/dvd set.

  5. Cherie Smith says:

    I’ll be honest I kinda hope there are no non-Rumble matches on this set I’ll admit there have been some classics in the event’s history but for me the 30-man Royal Rumble match IS the Royal Rumble therefore I’m hoping for a sizable collection of the 30-man Rumble matches especially a good number of the matches from the events of the 90s

  6. LP1 says:

    I love the oldschool late 80s/early 90s Royal Rumble logo. Hopefully they don’t change that when the final cover is revealed.

    • Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Life says:

      Get what you mean, LP1.. the mix of the colours, the “block” letters makes.. one of my all time favorite Rumble events is 1991..the way it was presented (similar to the year before) with those big yellow “block” letters, Vince’s presentaion of the participants and the other great matches.

      Can’t wait for no. 1 favorite event of the year gets a deserving profile release..hopefully with a good amount of great highlighting moments added to a revealing piece of entertaining (McMahon’ish) true story. 😉

      Bluray exclusive wish: The complete RR event 2008..with the JBL vs. Jericho match uncut and unedited, thank you, WWE. 🙂

      • Jeff Copeland says:

        ?? what do you mean by jericho jbl match uncut and unedited ???

        • Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Life says:

          The DVD makes an suddenly abrupt cut away from the match when JBL gets the chairshot that causes Y2J to be disqualifed. The segment actually continues after the bell rung, for example Jericho choking JBL. Most likely the reason why it was cut on the DVD version. The network edition has it in full length. And hopefully it will now come on Bluray too..also as a celebration for the 2008 event to be the first ppv to be filmed in HD.

          • Justin says:

            I have the 2008 Rumble dvd release in my dvd player now & the chair shot & the choking are in tact.

          • LP1 says:

            Ruthless, you might have a glitch on your disc. The original 2008 release of Rumble ’08 shows everything uncut.

            • Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Life says:

              woooh.. okay.. thats weird.. I have the Silver Vision UK steelbook version. And I read a review of the DVD on another site some years ago, where the reviewer talked about the weird cut on the US DVD when JBL gets nailed after the chairshot.

              • Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Life says:

                The chairshot is by the announce table, and then it makes the cut to next announcement of next segment. Weird, that I all these years thought it was on purpose with that terrible butchered match. -lol-

                • Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Life says:

                  Thank to You all for information..obviously theres an error on my copy..or in general the Silver Vision steelbook version has that weird cut.

                  If anyone else has the UK steelbook edition, I’d love to hear if theirs too is edited or uncut like most region 1 versions appearently are. 🙂

                  • Daniel Bee says:

                    Most likely the UK/European copies have the parts you mentioned cut out due to the BBFC, keeping it to a certain age rating, etc. Sounds like the US were not affected.

                    • Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Life says:

                      okay.. thanks.. looks like I will have to get that US version then..unless it will see a Blue release which I hope for.. 🙂

              • Justin says:

                At least on the original 2008 U.S release the DQ chairshot is there & the choking of JBL where Jericho is on the announce table pulling on the rope is in tact. The DQ comes at 33:39 if youre playing the dvd from start to end & theres still about 4 minutes left of the JBL/Jericho chapter after the DQ. The next chapter starts at 37:45 so somehow or another theres 4 minutes of missing from your disk.

          • Jeff Copeland says:

            i got the rumble 2008 on dvd and it shows everything the chairshot the chokeing and stuff maybe your copy is messed up ?
