    LOL at “Strong Men”

    I remember reading an interview with Raven a while back (who used to work as a producer for WWE in 93-94), he was saying how they would purposely put crappy matches on these as to not detract from PPV buys. Their logic being that if you owned “good” matches, you wouldn’t have an incentive to buy PPV where the real “good” matches are. Nowadays you can find pretty much anything right away on youtube, back then tapes were all you had. How times have changed!

    Got the UK version of WM’s greatest matches. Bought it at a bring and buy sale my school did when I was like, 7. Funny, even back then I thought the matches on it sucked lol.

  9. Harry Faversham says:

    Yes! I used to have some of these (UK versions). Awesome.

  10. east_side_rip_rida says:

    Wow I got almost all of these, the ultimate warrior one is a tough find. I got most of the coliseum videos from back in the day, hell most are still sealed with the coliseum water mark, I love seeing these old videos still being talked about, they are still the originals with no editing, that makes them great!

    Look at that Tough Guys video, Bushwackers vs Powers of Pain, Duggan vs Boris Zhukov, Garvin vs Haku, and based off the picture Hercules vs Akeem. Wow, that’s a hell of a show. Funny how if there was a line up like this today people would complain but since it happened 20+ years ago now people love “the old days.”

    I got the Best of Hulkamania free @ a Garage Sale I volenteered for last summer.

  13. ZT says:

    I actually have the Hulk Hogan and WrestleMania tapes. Got them when I was a kid and still have them to this day.

  14. RabidHeat says:

    The “tough as nails” Bushwhackers? Whaaat?! Lol.

  15. Adam says:

    Theres something about Coliseum videos and the smell of summer that brings me back to my childhood going down the street to rent them. I hope WWE releases these on DVD sometime in the future (In North America).

    Also, is this actually Sean Mooney writing these up? LOL

      I have all 10 Collector’s series videos. They continued the WS series with WS 911 on up, but no longer had the WWF Collector’s Series logo on it. I remember Coliseum Video advertising a JYD & Royal Rumble 88 video, but were never released.
