both are a must buy
just wondering what is better collecting for a 13 year old kid ppvs or 3 disc sets
i guess if youre in the same boat as most of us were at 13 and just having what little money you made working for a neighbor to spend then the ppvs would be the best IMO.
if you have all of them you have most of the matches that are on the 3 disc sets.
i dont quite understand the whole problem with the blurring–it is a copyright thing and nothing more and it does not take away from what is going on in the matches and the only bad part i see and it is no big thing is the awkward silence when an announcer or wrestler–sorry,sports entertainer–says wwf
Punk’s blu-ray should have been at least nine hours.
Yep, they seem to be getting shorter and shorter
8:34 is a lot better than what OMG was: 7:45 approximately or Clash of the Champions: 7:20 approximately. So eight and a half is long compared to those two, and those two were blu ray!
Its weird seeing an old DVD cover for blu ray but I LIKE IT!
Hoping for no blurs on Brock, until I find out WWE stuff is blur free, no buy.
Even if the set is blurred, Brock only had a handful of matches in the ‘WWF’ and possibly the only match they will include (other than maybe his early run-in segments) would be the Jeff Hardy match at Backlash.
The dvds from now on wont be blurred i think im not 100% sure but they wont promote the footage being uncensored, they will just leave everything intact, they have settled all procedures with the courts regarding the wwf scratch logo so they allowed to legally use the scratch logo anywhere they want, im sure if they thought they would leave the scratch logo the dvd sets will sell better so they will do their up-most to make sure they will leave the scratch logo untouched, they left all logos and wwf mentions intact on wwe.com showing attitude era stuff etc.. the first dvd we will find out is the brock lesnar dvd is their is still any blurring..
I’m sure they won’t be able to use the scratch logo “anywhere they want”. If I had to venture a guess they will only be able to use the term ‘WWF’ and logo on historic footage, I.e. they still won’t be able to say ‘WWF’ in new footage on an episode of Raw.
Also they won’t be able to promote the WWF logo – just like the UK tagged classics not having any WWF logos on the packaging.
Finally regarding the blurring; I’d imagine that the original documentary will be exactly as it appeared on DVD in 2003, and the special features may or may not be blurred depending upon if the set was completed prior to the settlement.
I love Blu-rays.
ill be getting the blu-ray for both
