  2. yes says:

    Skipped this at the time, hoping to see it for a low price soon

  3. Ryan Johansson says:

    I love that they included a couple of NXT matches especially Cesaro vs Kidd which I expect to be a phenomenal match. I haven’t seen Raw in a while so I also missed the Cena Open Challenges so looking forward to that as well as Lance Storm, Rick Rude and Curt Hennig on here.

  4. HD says:

    This was to be expected but man is this set worthless with Benoit complete absent since 90% of the best matches involved him.

  5. isrs4life says:

    They skip 2007 and 2011 on this set for wwe years. Probably because of Chris Benoit, Mr. Anderson and MVP and mvp and speacking of mvp he had a long us title reign once.

    Chris Benoit vs. Booker T from No Way Out 2007 was such an amazing match for the us title to.

  6. SCSA says:

    Only 3 matches – liked. I need at least 5 liked/wanna watch matches to buy a set!

  7. Eli says:

    So WWE wins the war and suddenly they get to rewrite history with this title?


  8. John says:

    Pretty good match listing and 36 matches is a lot! I will pick it up!

  9. RabidHeat says:

    I kinda wish they had gone the route of the Great American Bash set for this release and made it just NWA-WCW era matches, and done some kinda single or double DVD set of the WWE era of the US title later on down the road. I just can’t view the title as the same thing in WWE, when for much of it’s tenure it’s been used as a prop that is rarely defended.

  10. Gary says:

    I like the ones from the Mid-Atlantic and JCP years, because I have not seen them in quite a long time. I have seen most of the WCW and WWE ones but still somewhat interested in seeing them again.

  11. Scott says:

    Only match that should of been added from GAB Rhodes vs Windham. A true classic!

  12. John says:

    Not a bad listing! I will pick it up!

  13. Jammer says:

    I actually really like the match listing for this DVD/Blu Ray set. A few rare gems on here that aren’t on the WWE Network, which is always a nice bonus in buying these videos now.

    Only complaint I have – and it’s not even a real big deal – is that they still haven’t put the Lex Luger vs. Barry Windham US Title match from Chi-Town Rumble out on DVD. I figured this would be the DVD for that to take place.

    Also, we get the typical matches involving certain wrestlers that are just automatic musts for DVD releases. For example, the Eddie Guerrero match. Eddie always seems to make it on WWE DVD releases as often as possible.

    But over all, I will be purchasing this set for sure!

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      well i am surprized there was no eddie us title matches in wwe disk. there had to be some matches with eddie from 03 with us title. i think there was few vs matt hardy cena maybe tajiri or rhino ????

      i mean get why they did not put the vengeance 03 finals cause……… but eh its not a bad release but i think wwe disk could of been bit better

  14. Jeff Copeland says:

    eh not to bad, disappointed with wwe disk i would of liked 1 or 2 more mvp or a shelton or ziggler or ambrose title defenses. wcw nwa are good matches but just that wwe disk ehhh not bad still on the fence.

    i hope we get a european title dvd one day or cw/lightheavyweight. i think theres a hardcore one comming out this year??? but i am not sure

    • Lemo says:

      There are no Ambrose defences. He never ever defended the title.

      • Jeff Copeland says:

        as far as dean ambrose defending the us title i only know of the 4 ppv defences. payback 2013 vs kane, well 4 if you count summerslam preshow vs rvd, night of champions vs ziggler, and hell in a cell vs big E, then 2014 he defended it few times so but they wern’t that great matches

  15. RCS1988 says:

    ​​WCW United States Championship Match
    ​​Dustin Rhodes vs. “Ravishing” Rick Rude
    WCW Pro • September 18, 1993

    This is their Saturday Night 9/11/93 match, but they are using the Pro version because it doesn’t have Jesse Ventura doing commentary.

  16. Frank hanson says:

    Get it for cheap when Wwe has it on sale about two weeks after its released

  17. Brad Attitude says:

    Hmm looks like I’m going to pass on this. Too many random throw in matches and not enough important matches to full in between the large gap years. Massively disappointed I must admit.

    • David says:

      So basically people complain about repeats and now WWE try to put in some rare and never before released matches not on the Network and other DVDs and yet people still complain.

      If there were more important matches then it would mostly consist of PPV matches and matches that were released before and everyone would complain.

      Its like WWE can’t win either way.

      • Brad Attitude says:

        Where’s the legacy of greatness here?

        Most of these matches are completely forgettable with recognisable names and the time period in between each match are too big which cheapens the set. If u wanna be sucked into buying this set just because it’s got “rare” matches that are dull and boring then be my guest.

        I prefer to see a championship dvd with important matches along with a few gems even if most are repeats because it’s what makes it’s history better to look back on.

      • Jeff Copeland says:

        what did you expect 😛 !!!! i mean first thing people complained was OMG NO BENNNWAHHHH!!!! and now the match list is out and people still complain. its modern b%itch era now thats all people do

        • Brad Attitude says:

          I expected the best title matches, not unimportant ones that are completely forgettable and cheapens the entire set. If that is your thing (like they usually are), then go but it but I ain’t wasting my money on this rubbish compilation.

      • some guy says:

        Attitude complains about everything WWE releases. It’s his gimmick.

        • Brad Attitude says:

          You’re an idiot. At least I don’t agree with everything WWE and kiss their ass like u would. I’ll speak up if I have to and in this case I did.

            • Brad Attitude says:

              Yeah I’m a mark for good quality matches that matches the timeline, not random unimportant matches that are forgettable.

              You sir are a monghead. Continue to kiss WWE’s ass on every crap product they release because you’re too afraid to speak up.

    • Domenic says:

      @David: You make a great point. Sure, every DVD/Blu-Ray will have matches that have been released on previous sets, unless it is an unreleased set, but WWE also listens to the fans, to an extent of course, when it comes to them releasing matches that have never made the cut onto other sets. People complain that when an unreleased match makes a set, it has already been released onto the WWE Network. While the match is on the Network itself, the match has never been released on physical media and some people cannot afford or access the WWE Network in different situations. When I create my own Fantasy Concepts for DVDs (Which I am trying to bring back by the way), I always put matches that have never been released on DVD, but are on the WWE Network. Seriously, these people should stop acting like children and actually thank WWE for releasing matches that have been unreleased. #ThankYouWWE

  18. Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Life says:

    Really do not care bout the Cena vs Whoever, except for the Cesaro one..and could have wished for some even more unreleased gems like the ones Richard mentiones down under.. but over all looks really good.. problaly not gonna be my all time favorite release to get in collection, but some No Dq’s and Cage matches on here, that I am excited to watch for the first time.

  19. Richard says:

    Massively disappointed in this set. So much to look back on, especially from the Mid Atlantic years. Not ONE Johnny Valentine match? Blackjack Mulligan? Wahoo McDaniel? Even as a bluray exclusive it would have been cool to see.

    The WWE/WCW selections show just how piss poor this title was booked since 1988. For the most part, these are simply forgettable matches with recognizable names.

  20. RnRisKing says:

    I wish Magnum vs Wahoo cage match made the cut. I’m still getting this set.

    • Ravenlord says:

      This is the match I was looking for as well. I’m sorry to see that it’s not included on this release, but I believe I have that match on my VHS copy of the Crockett Cup 87. Got to dig out my VCR.

  21. Straightedge47 says:

    Does anyone know how many of these have been released on other sets?

    • Mike Poulin says:

      Already released matches
      Magnum vs Tully is on the Starrcade set
      DDP vs Eddie is on Eddie’s Viva La Raza set
      Goldberg vs Raven is on the Goldberg set
      Edge vs Test is on the Edge set I think
      Cena vs Bg Show is on Cena’s World Life and one of his 3 disc sets can’t remember which one though.

    • Anthony says:

      “I Quit” Steel Cage Match – Tully Blanchard vs Magnum T.A.
      (WWE Starrcade: The Essential Collection)

      Sting vs. “Ravishing” Rick Rude
      (Best of WCW Clash of the Champions)

      “Raven’s Rules” Match – Raven vs. Goldberg
      (Goldberg: The Ultimate Collection & Best of WCW Monday Nitro – Vol. 2)

      (The Very Best of WCW Monday Nitro – Vol. 1)

      Championship Unification Match – Edge vs. Test

  22. Todd Cash says:
