  1. pat daoust says:

    What about the MSG live event when AJ won the US TITLE against Kevin Owens ?

  2. Lando says:

    It would’ve been nice if they added one or two of his early tag team matches in wcw’s dying days.

  3. Sean says:

    I’m gonna pass on this!

  4. Osian says:

    you forgot the triple threat match against Dean Ambrose and John Cena in No Mercy 2016. that was a phenomenal match

  5. David says:

    Meh….the release is fine for those suckers that want to buy every DVD with a WWE logo slapped on no matter what but i would have expected some earlier matches like his tryout or couple WCW ones instead of all his recent stuff. That’s where I really miss the Blu-ray because no telling there would have been Blu-ray exclusives and better quality but instead we get a meh release on inferior 20+ year old format so the quality will be a blocky compressed mess.

    I’ll stick to the WWE Network to access all these matches which are in HD anyways instead of this.

  6. DaBluGuy says:

    Too much PPV matches which are easily available. Not really Phenomenal imo

  7. captainplanet says:

    They’re probably saving his earlier try-out stuff (and hopefully TNA stuff later down the line if they can get the rights to it) for an actual career bio. I’m pretty happy with this match listing. We got some REALLY recent stuff with promising guys like Chad Gable and Almas, which I did not expect. Lots of good PPV matches and interesting tv battles.

  8. DJ Luis says:

    All the way to the AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens vs. Chris Jericho match, only one match before that is not on the AJ Styles WWE Network Collection, and in HD. I’ll stick with the HD collection.

  9. Anan says:

    Nice set of matches. Glad the WM32 match with Jericho, Summerslam against Cena, and the MITB match with Nakamura were included. Pleasantly surprised that the 3 Way involving KO and Jericho and the just recently aired match with Almas made the cut too.

    I see this as a preview/a taste of what’s to come if an AJ documentary set is ever done. Naturally some matches here will probably be re-released there unfortunately taking up valuable dvd disc space which can be used for other matches of his that haven’t been released yet. I think a documentary set and/or an unreleased set on AJ or this specific era is what they’re saving that MSG match for but I’m only speculating.

    • RabidHeat says:

      It’s very rare that they duplicate matches from set-to-set for a particular superstar when the next set is intended as a companion piece to the previous set. There are a few exceptions (the Foley HIAC match being released on two Foley sets etc.) but in general I wouldn’t be expecting any match repeats from this set on the next AJ set.

      • Anan says:

        Really? I can see the doc if there is gonna be one in some way or form covering his first WM, rivalry with Cena and KO in addition to other things like his first WWE Title win.

        With that said I can definitely see some re-releases from this set on an AJ doc set like

        vs Jericho at WM32, his first WM.

        vs Ambrose at Backlash 2016, his first WWE title win. Maybe his second title win over Mahal might get re-released just bc of the significance that it’s his 2nd WWE Title win, happened on tv instead of ppv which is rare, lasted longer I tthan his first title run and bc of the matches he’s had during his second title run.

        vs Lesnar at SSeries maybe released again in a follow up AJ doc set. If you’ve seen it you’ll know why that might just happen.

        Other re-releases maybe
        vs Cena at Summerslam, his Summerslam debut snd it’s also during the Cena rivalry plus he beat Cena.

        One or both of the matches with Reigns. Though I don’t think both need a re-release. One of them is probably enough.

        I can see his first world title defense at WM being discussed in the doc. If it is I can see the match at WM34 vs Nakamura being re-released on there too.

        As rare as re-releases occur as you stated, it doesn’t mean they don’t happen. So it could very well happen, rare or not.

  10. Johnny W. says:

    The lack of the Owens MSG match certainly is a head scratcher… It would have also been cool to see his WWE tryout match from years ago on Metal or Jakked or whatever it was!

  11. Nick says:

    I think that the match selection is good enough for a purchase. However, I would’ve removed the triple threat with Wyatt and Cena and the Chad Gable match and have them replaced with his MSG US title won over Owens and his match against Orton. Other than that I’d say this is a close to perfect set

  12. SRB says:

    Feel free to disagree, but it seems like WWE really isn’t trying these days. I can’t help but recall how terrific sets like the Ric Flair and Bret Hart ones were back in the day. You really got your dollar value with those. It seems almost impossible that we would ever see sets like that again and this is something I think about often. WWE just doesn’t seem to be producing actual documentaries anymore, which is also something to be desired and when they do, they are only around an hour long. This is generally a good set, but I am thinking about the much bigger picture here. Has there been a set that has really excited people and delivered lately? It’s been a while for me. Maybe the upcoming HBK one will be worth it.

    • Anan says:

      Certainly accurate though their unreleased sets have been probably the best sets currently released. But yes I enjoyed the Bret Hart and Stone Cold career retrospective documentary sets along with the Bret vs HBK Greatest Rivalries set too. Why they didn’t follow up on with another Greatest Rivalries set idk bc there’s over a ton considering all the wrestling libraries they own aside from their own library which itself spans many years.

      Though I get it’s for marketing purposes and a way to get people to know the talent more and things like that but I still do not at all agree with talent like KO who had a great but short for my taste documentary and Aj Styles getting sets on them when they haven’t been in the company in 10 years yet. Too early for sets especially considering there’s other long term talent who they could and should be focusing their dvds on.

      A proper career spanning retrospective on Sting who’s in the HOF and retired so perfect time to do this on him. Vader, I know he didn’t have a long or great run in WWE but still. Rick Rude, Demolition, Goldust, Booker T, Kurt Angle, Kane, Lita, Goldberg, Orton who’s been in the company since 2002 (main roster) and has had so many great rivalries and matches and moments yet I don’t think a proper documentary has been done on him yet and so so so many others.

      The thing too about documentaries now is they’re so damn short. A long career like Kane, Sting, etc being covered in a less than 2 hour doc? Naturally many things will be skipped, rushef through and rightfully get bashed by viewers and fans for that. Point being they won’t live up to deserved expectations and all.

      • SRB says:

        Completely agree regarding the Greatest Rivalries set. Bret/HBK set the bar pretty high with that one. I always thought it could have been topped with Vince/Bischoff. But, highly unlikely at this point. As you said, the list for that series could be endless.

        I also agree it is far too early for people like AJ and KO to be getting sets. I’m sure next year we can count on a Nakamura set along with Braun (I’m half joking here).

        I for sure agree with Sting needing a proper set too. I thought his documentary completely stunk and lacked depth to say the least, and I’m there with you about needing sets on guys like Rude and Booker.

        The documentary type that WWE is creating these days really bug me as they went completely downhill. We got extensive documentaries on ECW and Bret, but when it came to Sting, things really felt short and I felt like WWE thought people wouldn’t notice or something.

        • Anan says:

          In some weird way I kinda felt the Monday Night Wars series was pretty much the Vince/Eric rivalry. If u saw that series you’ll know why I’m thinking that. I rather they focus more on wrestling/wrestler rivalries too. The Rivalries series, WM Rewind which could’ve expanded beyond just WM, they could’ve done more with these series too also.

          Haha nice joke 🙂

          Idk that the Sting doc completely stunk. It’s a matter of opinion. Just feel a career doc would’ve been better. But at that time I didn’t know he’d retire so soon after he debuted in WWE. Now that he’s done, they should focus on doing a proper career doc on Sting. I do feel bad about why he retired and that it happened before the dream match he wanted w/Taker. If he came early might’ve been a bigger chance but they had a chance at WM31 or had him beat HHH there, not wrestle Rollins, then face Taker at WM32 and retire. Taker vs Sting regardless of their limitations if any, I’d prefer that over Shane with all respect to him.

          Agree w/you about the doc type they create now

      • RabidHeat says:

        Most of those I agree with – Demolition though? Entertaining team and some good matches; much respect to them, but I just don’t think they’re “Road Warriors”-calibre legends enough to warrant their own 3-disc set.

      • LP1 says:

        Anan, in another thread from the other day you said you don’t feel wrestlers should get home video releases if they haven’t been in the company for at least 5 years. Now on this thread you’re saying it should be 10 years. Will tomorrow’s thread be 15-20 years? Lol All of which is ridiculous.

        Like I mentioned on the other post, the length of time a wrestler has been with the company is irrelevant, as long as the wrestler has enough quality matches to fill up a release, which AJ has.

        • RabidHeat says:

          And in AJ’s case, let’s face it, his length of time “in WWE” is irrelevant. As much as WWE like to think they’re the centre of the universe, AJ Styles was a superstar for over a decade before he landed in WWE.

          • Anan says:

            @RabidHeat: Please go back and read that paragraph of that comment again and you’ll see that I never said Demolition warranted a 3 disc set. I spoke of sets in the 1st paragraph. Demolition was not in that paragraph. Just said they deserved a proper length career spanning retrospective documentary. A Network documentary alone would’ve probably been enough though knowing WWE they’d probably stick a Demolition Network Collection which I’m fine with as they were entertaining enough to warrant one.

            Agreed. AJ’s length of time is irrelevant as he’s had many great matches in WWE in his so far short time there. He absolutely was a superstar prior to getting to WWE but unless they somehow get that footage to release on their own dvd sets – which tbh they don’t need to as AJ’s had more than enough great matches in WWE to fill up a set – the fact that they do not have any access to his pre-WWE career it doesn’t matter as far as WWE sets specifically go that he was a phenomenal superstar before hitting WWE bc what can WWE do w/that time of his wrestling career as it currently stands??

            @LP1: yes exactly I said wrestlers as in a general sense but when it comes to a general sense there can be and at times there are exceptions. AJ being one of them. As far as the amount of years changing and ranging from 5 to 10 to as u suggest 15-20, that’s also in a general sense. If I was gonna be specific I would’ve specifically named a wrestler and said that wrestler shouldn’t get a set till he’s a specified number of years in the company. Fact is it depends on the talent. For example to explain to u what I mean, AJ could spend almost 1 year and his performances would warrant a set yet Bayley or Strowman while great talents would need to have been imo 5 at least or more years so they’d have enough content to fill up a warrant a set being done on them bc Bayley didn’t do enough things in her first main roster year to fill up a set and in his first main roster year Strowman wasn’t booked how he has been recently for the last few yrs. So like I said, depends on talent. That’s why I generalized my comments with saying wrestlers instead of naming a specific wrestler as one may need less than 5 years, one may need 5 years, one may need more than 5 years to warrant a set in them. Get my point now?
            If u can’t understand that then that is your problem no one else’s. Hope I’ve cleared it up for you enough to understand.

            • LP1 says:

              Anan, but that’s not what you said at all. You did mention specific wrestlers. You named AJ and Owens as people who shouldn’t have sets yet. Your exact quote was…

              “I still do not at all agree with talent like KO who had a great but short for my taste documentary and Aj Styles getting sets on them when they haven’t been in the company in 10 years yet.”

              • Anan says:

                Why can’t you just let me have my own opinion? Everyone’s entitled to one, you included. There’s no right or wrong in opinions or shouldn’t be. I didn’t agree w/your opinions on Lesnar and while I did debate u on that I still respected your right to have your opinion on it even though I disagreed w/your opinions on him.

                I’m not harming you in any way am I? Don’t think so. So just let me be. Or is that a problem/too difficult for you to do?

                And like I said there can be/are exceptions and depends on the talent. At the time I named AJ & KO I felt that as great as their time has been in WWE so far though not yet long, sets on them could’ve waited so talents who had longer careers in companies whose libraries WWE own could’ve gotten sets. And undeniably in that category there’s a long list of names who haven’t gotten a documentary set at all (Booker T, Goldust, Goldberg, Kane, Kurt Angle for some examples) or a proper documentary (Sting for one example)
                I believe one reason KOs doc as great as it was, was as short as it was is bc of when they decided to do it. WWE don’t own his pre-WWE career bc it happened in places whose libraries WWE don’t own or have any access to. Had it been a different case, the doc may have been longer and maybe some pre-WWE content would’ve made up the set though WWE being WWE I believe most of the content would still be WWE stuff bc that’s just how they and maybe all wrestling companies are. Had they did a doc on someone like Goldberg, Goldust, Booker T, Angle, names like that while waiting for careers like KO’s to span longer in WWE imho would’ve been better. Do I really need to explain why? Btw a documentary doesn’t necessarily need to be a dvd set. Discs have allotted amount of space which will eventually run out. I understand there’s still collectors out there which I guess is one reason why they’re still releasing sets when they have a Network they can easily upload everything to which results in more than what’s gonna fit on dvd or even blu ray discs.

                • LP1 says:

                  Wait a second. I never said you can’t have an opinion. All I said was I disagreed with your opinion, which I’m allowed to. You then responded with a long diatribe trying to say that I misunderstood what you were saying, which I didn’t misunderstand you at all. I then called you on that because you lied. This has nothing to do with an opinion, just don’t backtrack and lie. If you say how you feel, own it. Nothing wrong with that.

      • whut says:

        especially since good documentaries will make for worthwhile Network content down the road.

  13. LP1 says:

    Lots of excellent matches. Bummed out about the MSG US Title change not being included. Could’ve sworn that was confirmed.

    • Daniel Bee says:

      That was speculated on going back to July last year.

      “Reports attributed to a Sportskeeda YouTube show suggest that one reason WWE decided to switch the United States Championship from Kevin Owens to AJ Styles at Madison Square Garden was in efforts to create another career milestone and “MSG moment” for that proposed AJ DVD”

      Sounded feasible but sadly I guess it wasn’t to be.

      We mentioned it again earlier this month but did specify that it wasn’t confirmed.

  14. Robert James Emons says:

    They forgot Nakamura vs aj from backlash

    • LP1 says:

      With good reason. That finish killed the crowd for the rest of the show.

      • RabidHeat says:

        Maybe, but I think the crowd would have still died for the horrendous main event anyway.

      • Anan says:

        I thought the crowd was killed after the Rollins/Miz match. Because that was so good I figured they didn’t care for anything that followed that. To me an example of something being “too good” and opening the show with that.

        Had AJ/Nakamura had the LMS match they had at MITB as the closing match of Backlash, crowd wouldn’t have left.

        Would’ve been better if the last 3 matches were
        Rollins vs Miz
        A breather match in between to let the crowd rest so they’ll be ready for the closing match
        Close out with AJ/Nakamura Last Man Standing to finish the feud with a clean decisive victory/actual finish.

      • Anan says:

        I’m not lying or backtracking on anything. Disagree w/me if u want I don’t care. Your disagreement won’t harm me in any way.

        I explained myself just fine. I felt differently when I said what I said in another older thread. I’ve changed/tweaked my thoughts on it a little bit since the other thread you originally brought up but I still feel how I feel. Just to a bit of a smaller degree and with tweaks here and there as my viewing days have lessened to where I only watch certain things now and that’s not only pertaining to wrestling either.

  15. Ricardo Aguilera says:

    Awesome DVD but wtf remember last year it said it was going to have the United States championship match against Kevin Owen’s from msg what happened it’s not even listen oh well can’t wait for it

  16. James says:

    Not going to watch it but I’ll have it for my collection

    • RabidHeat says:

      Best comment ever. Gonna buy it, but won’t watch it. Errrrr…okay.

      • LP1 says:

        Seems there’s a few people like that. They collect home videos like they’re baseball cards. They just like looking at them on a shelf or wherever and don’t actually watch them. To each their own. Whatever makes them happy, but I don’t get it.

    • Patrick McNamara says:

      Thank god Im not the only one who doesnt understand that comment. ^ I collect avidly as well but I watch my collection. Lol. Like you said each their own .

  17. meme says:

    So it doesn’t have the Owens MSG match? Nothing from his early career?

    • Anthony says:

      I know right? Easy pass for me.

      • Patrick McNamara says:

        You do realize they are saving that for a career bio dvd. Styles is towards the end of jis career. So just wait a few years. Let him win a Royal Rumble,then win a MITB contract,maybe even the SD tag titles with a worthy partner,and perhaps the IC title then we can get a career dvd spanning back to WCW. And so on.

        • Anthony says:

          No I did not realize that. Where are you getting your info from? It’s inexcusable for them not to include Owens vs Styles from MSG last year.

          • RabidHeat says:

            Lol … “inexcusable”. Really bad stuff in the world is “inexcusable”. Like terrorism. But somehow I think I’ll feel okay forgiving a wrestling company for not putting a certain match on a DVD, thanks.

  18. Rkmo says:

    Pretty darn good listing! Glad to see his tag match with Jericho on there. Not feeling both of his matches with Roman, nor his Rumble 2017 match with Cena. Would’ve liked to have seen some more of his multi-man matches in winter 2016 from Smackdown, or one of the #1 Contender matches on SD against Harper or Orton, or the speculated MSG house match where he first won the US Championship, but still a must-have for me.

    • RabidHeat says:

      I get what you’re saying, but the set is called “Most Phenomenal Matches”, so naturally well-reviewed PPV classics are going to be chosen over multi-man TV matches.

  19. Jammer says:

    This is a definite must buy for my collection. It will look nicely on a shelf collecting dust, but I will have it, so that’s all that matters!

    • RabidHeat says:

      I can’t work out if that means you want to watch it or not.

      • Jammer says:

        I don’t really watch any WWE DVDs now with having the WWE Network. But I still collect the DVDs of wrestlers I enjoy. Like I just bought the new Shield DVD set since I have the original and the Seth Rollins DVD. So they just sit on a shelf with my other wrestling stuff I have now.

  20. Tommy D says:

    Good listing. 5 unreleased matches and the Almas/Styles match is a nice surprise.
