    Man iTunes just released this today for some reason they are never early like this usually they are a few days late to a few weeks later for the ppv releases.

    “— The Piper’s Pit with Jimmy Hart from October 1986 was previously released on the “Born to Controversy” DVD.”

    Well, that’s just great. Do they purposely put one thing on these “Unreleased”” DVDs that was in fact released, just to annoy us? They did this on the HBK release with the Tornado Tag.

    I mean we already lost some space with the lack of a third disc; so they just thought they’d waste part of what little space we have left with this?

    • whut says:

      I’m pretty sure that was an issue of lacking quality control. in short, someone screwed up.

      • RabidHeat says:

        Precisely – so my point is, why didn’t they learn from the last time they did it with the HBK set and take a minute to proof-read the listing this time?

  3. RCS1988 says:

    I’m hoping they do more Unreleased sets in 2020 either on wrestlers or a 2nd volume of Unreleased 1986-1995.

    • meme says:

      This. Only two discs means they should be able to find enough content for a second volume. Maybe show some matches from Wrestling Challenge since they have some from that show on this set and it’s not on the network as far as I know.

    sighs as a big piper fan that dvd is disappointing. as far as dvd releases cenas was ok balors dvd looks again just ok. sucks last few years have been disappointing as far as dvd releases.

    i think last over all good release was that macho man unreleased matches dvd.
