    Well, Batista’s dvd still seems like a bust……. can’t wait to watch Rivalries though, some others I’d like to see:

    Triple H vs. Randy Orton
    Triple H vs. KANE (just for laughs!)
    Triple H vs. Stone Cold
    Triple H vs. Vince McMahon
    Triple H vs. Mick Foley/Dude Love/Mankind/Cactus Jack
    Triple H vs. Chris Jericho
    Triple H vs. Kurt Angle

    Really good rivalries honestly… good story-telling, drama, matches.

  2. Erik G. says:

    I wasn’t very interested in this but after seeing those matches, I think I might get this. There should be some good unreleased content. Batista’s return on SNME in July 2006 would be another good choice.

  3. Wonderllama says:

    I love Batista but do they really need that match vs. Alberto Del Rio? All it does is show him failing at being cheered and the crowd taunting him!

    For something recent, I’d rather have Batista’s time winning this year’s Royal Rumble. Just for the laughs!

  4. Hell NO!… I’m sick of the rivalries ideas because my #1 ULTIMATE WARRIOR never gets added.
    These surveys are stupid!
    Ultimate Warrior vs. Rick Rude
    Ultimate Warrior vs. Randy Savage
    Ultimate Warrior vs. Hulk Hogan
    Ultimate Warrior vs. Undertaker
    Ultimate Warrior vs. Papa Shango
    Ultimate Warrior vs. Andre The Giant

    There are plenty of Ultimate Warrior rivalries that never are included.
    It’s always Triple H, Taker, Hogan, and others.
    Quit being selfish and choosing your picks and choose ours!
    Our money depends on it. We are the fans.

    • LP1 says:

      A Warrior collection DVD/BR, a fantastic documentary on his life, a WrestleMania Rewind focusing on Warrior vs Hogan and a Legends roundtable discussion entirely on Warrior all happened in the last month and you’re complaining about lack of Warrior. Ok then.

    • Kenny says:

      “ULTIMATE WARRIOR never gets added”?!?! Yeah, buddy, where in the world have you been? Every single one of the things you listed has been given to us over the course of the last month. What more are you expecting?

  5. SRB says:

    Great selections for Big Dave so far!

  6. Lachlan Murdoch says:

    The Hogan vs Savage & The Rock vs Triple H feuds are the only rivalries that interest me because of the onscreen and offscreen rivalry behind it!

  7. Tommy D says:

    Daniel, when do you think you’ll be able to release the entire match listing?

  8. Scott says:

    I wonder if they’ll get to ECW eventually? Sabu/Taz. Raven/Tommy. Etc.

  9. Daniel Bee says:

    Well, WWE apparently not considering doing an ep on the Jericho/Michaels feud saddens me. 😥

    • Wonderllama says:

      They already showcased them on WrestleMania Rewind!

      • Kenny says:

        They did, but that was for their feud from 2003. I think Daniel is referring to their awesome 2008 feud that included Jericho punching Shawn’s wife in the face at SummerSlam.

  10. Mike says:

    When will rivalries debut?

    • Mark D says:

      An official air date hasn’t published yet. However they do have Monday Night War listed as the summer 2014 so maybe fall/winter (at a guess?).

  11. Vintage Simon says:

    Good selections thus far. And it’s a real novelty to finally see some 2004 TV matches make it to DVD.

    • Tommy D says:

      I agree. The lack of 2004 RAW matches is depressing and it is great to finally get at least one more.

    • Erik G. says:

      Time has moved enough for us to finally get some good 2000’s content. This, the Heyman doc, and GAB(although it is already all released) should have more. We’re already almost halfway through the 2010’s, hard to believe.
