They made Goldberg a bit weird.
STONE COLD Vs GOLDBERG was one of my dream matches! N Austin would have never settled to b in Brock’s shoes to loose under 2mins like that, especially to Goldberg! Oh well
I do agree that given the fact that retroactively we can see the match was 90 seconds, it is a bit naughty to try and sell the event with a cover based on that match alone (and to call it a “mega match” in the synopsis when we know it turned out to be anything but). Probably should have featured all the combatants from Team Raw vs. Team SmackDown front and centre and a smaller picture of Lesnar v. Goldberg at the bottom or in a corner.
I apologise in advance for putting my opinion across and that it doesn’t match yours, LP1.
Regardless of whether the match went 90 seconds or 90 minutes, you use the cover to help sell the product. Having 10 of the same-old guys on the cover, it will make it seem like most other releases. But with Goldberg and Brock on the cover, it will make a difference. Not that it really matters in the big picture at this point, because home video sales are completely in the toilet. And the only people left that buy these releases are the hardest of the hardcore fans that buy pretty much everything, regardless of what the cover looks like. WWE already knows those fans are going to buy whatever they put out, so they want to grab the attention of casual fans. However many are left.
Not disputing WHY they do it. Doesn’t mean it’s not unethical, is all I meant.
I don’t understand some people. When there’s a PPV release with a spoiler cover, everyone says it would be better if they just stick with the event poster as the cover. And now we have the event poster as the cover and everyone is still complaining. Of course it looks like the video game cover. That was the whole theme of this PPV. The reason they brought Goldberg back in the first place was to plug the video game.
Plain and simple…. They will never be happy.
It wasn’t the “whole theme” of the PPV at all.
Actually it was. “Fantasy Warfare Just Got Real” was the theme. Every match on the show was built around the Fantasy Warfare concept that you could only get in the video game. That’s where Goldberg vs Brock and all the SmackDown vs Raw matches came from. If you watch the PPV itself, the opening video package centers around clips of the video game.
Omg! The Goldberg Vs Lesnar match sucked! It was less then 2minutes long! n it was the main match on the card!
Forget buying this PPV!
Ehhhhh looks to similar to 2K17…just not feeling it but the event itself is definitely worth getting.
Well, there’s going to be some annoyed parents at Xmas when their kid opens their present and moan that they got the event instead of the videogame with a similar lazy cover like that. 😉
They should have used Braun Strowman putting Ellsworth throuhg a table..by far the most exciting thing that happend at that show.
Is survivor series going to be a 2 disc since it was 4 hours? Summer slam was 4 and it was a two disc. It would have to be if it was 4 hours right?
Not necessarily. They promoted Survivor Series as 4 hours, but the show was barely 3 hours and 20 minutes. Some of the other PPVs had the same time as Survivor Series and was kept on one disc. SummerSlam this year was actually over 4 hours so they had to but it on 2 discs.
Looking like just the 1 disc.
…Which means no dvd bonus features. Oh well.
Yup. The pre-show matches have been missing from several PPV releases this year because they decided to go longer than 3 hours with their PPVs for no real reason. And even the UK blu-ray releases don’t include the pre-show matches sometimes. Such a waste.
