Not sure which ones are corrupt besides Invasion 92 and Supertape 92…but looks like a great list of gems, especially the Wrestlefest series.
I remember reading on twitter in response to a question that Mega Matches and Wrestlefest 91 are corrupt and also once they said they wouldn’t re-release Sunny because it didn’t sell very well when it was first released. There are of course still some DVDs they could reissue also. Off the top of my head some others are Davey Boy Smith, Off The Top Rope, Austin Lord of the Ring, Andre Larger Than Life, SuperSlams and Raw Hits. Obviously I don’t expect them all to be re-released. But I’m very happy they have started with the Best of Raw series from 96-98.
I know that Year in Review 1992 is corrupt, because I asked them once, because I really liked the tape – so many memories… 🙁
I think these Tagged Classics are geting a bit stupid now. I mean there is actually good stuff they could re-release from the VHS catalogue still, but they seem to purposely picking the lamest stuff.
I think corrupt master tapes is the reason some excellent titles have not been released on tagged classics. Plus I think they want to spread the stronger and weaker titles out a bit so that tagged classics has a longer future. In many ways that’s good business sense. They aren’t the strongest releases but I think there are a few gems on there and I personally love the nostalgia element of these tapes. They are as honest a representation of wrestling history you will get, having been made back in the day without having all the people that Vince fell out with edited off and all the music changed and Santino Marella’s comedy opinion etc. This stuff is up my street. I agree there are much better choices, but I’m still gald to see this kind of release get the DVD treatment. Back when wrestling was something you just watched instead of read and argue about what may or may not happen behind the scenes.
Was hoping they would release the old Coliseum video tapes from the 80s such as Wrestling Classic, The Big Event, British Bulldogs, Demolition, Macho Man & Elizabeth, Roddy Piper, Ricky Steamboat, History of the Intercontinental Championship, History of the WWF Heavyweight Championship, Best of the WWF Vol. 1 to 20 and so many others. Those were absolute gems. Not sure if those were released in the UK or not, i know some were.
I have some of those original tapes with the clamshell cases but the quality is deteriorating so would be awesome if they were available as Tagged Classics. Would import those in a heartbeat.
SilverVision only released The British Bulldogs from those you mentioned. The others weren’t released so they would be ineligible for a Tagged Classic release, unfortunately.
afaik Silver Vision didn’t release a lot of those titles you mentioned in the first place. so since those Tagged Classics are just re-releases, many of those won’t happen.
Why call it the 2012 annual if the matches are from 2011 little things like that annoy me
Does anyone know what Savage v Flair match is on the fan favorites? Was it the title change from Hershey, PA from 9/1/92 that only aired on Prime Time Wrestling? I really want this if it is since this match has yet to be on DVD. Thanks for any info in advance!
I’m afraid that isn’t the match, this is it:
“WWF World Champion Randy Savage defeated Ric Flair (w/ Mr. Perfect) via disqualification at around the 12-minute mark when Perfect attempted to hit Savage with the title belt but referee Earl Hebner took the belt from him before he could (6/2/92; Ottawa, Ontario)”

Do we know which Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart match that is?
Its ok I found it. Its on the Greatest Rivalries set and Invasion of the Bodyslammers VHS.
WWE Annual 2012.. Wow! That looks amazing. I’d love that on my shelf.
I just purchased (and got today) Triple H That Damn Good for $25 on ebay. I wonder if I did good.
Decent enough, yeah.
It wasn’t released in the UK and back in the day it used to fetch crazy prices in that market on eBay. I sold a bunch and I think the best sale I had was £62 ($95~). I really like that DVD anyway but this further helps my memory of it. 😉
It was also available in Canada…I picked it when it came out for about $15. Didn’t know it would end up being so rare.
just got back from walmart picked up randy orton superstar collection but not the kingston
