  1. Vintage Simon says:

    I just finished my viewing of the set, so thought I’d throw in a few random thoughts.

    – I liked the chemistry between Sean Mooney and Charly Caruso. I’m not too familiar with her as I don’t watch much of today’s product, but she comes off as natural and at ease. Is always fun seeing Sean again too. I also liked the intro right at the start of the main menu. It’s quite a novel use of space, and I’m surprised I’ve never seen this before.

    – My favourite matches on the set were the two bouts right at the end from July 1995 – Michaels & Hart vs. Lawler & Hakushi, and Diesel vs. Yokozuna. Partly because this was around the time I first started watching (yup, I’m a New Gen guy), and partly because the picture and footage is the best on the set. The cage match wasn’t fantastic, but it had its moments. The lack of any communication between Hart and Michaels hinted that their issues were already brewing.

    – I was quite surprised by the end of the Michaels vs. Perfect match from April 1993, and actually had to look it up to see if it were a title change I was just unaware of. Quite strange that they didn’t address the reversed decision on the DVD.

    – The Money Inc. vs. Mega Maniacs match was definitely worth of a Coliseum Video release, and I’m assuming it never made the cut due to Hogan’s departure shortly after. I’m surprised it wasn’t included on one of Hogan’s sets before now though, but this was one of the more entertaining matches on the DVD, I thought.

    – I’m slightly surprised that WWE would release some of the matches that had particularly poor quality. Sometimes I feel they go from one extreme to the other; although we often complain about repeats (and yes, the WM X gag was pretty funny and felt aimed at WDN visitors), I don’t think they necessarily have to dig quite this deep. Just releasing more presentable bouts from historic VHS releases would do the trick.

    – I hadn’t known anything about the Toxic Turtles before seeing this, but how could the company possibly have thought this wasn’t a major copyright breach? The fact that it bombed was probably a blessing in disguise, from a legal point of view. I did LOL at the turtle on his back spot, and I’m not even sorry.

    Overall, it was perhaps a little better than I’d anticipated going in, because they roll through the matches pretty fast, so nothing really outstays its welcome. I wasn’t hugely keen on the 1980s content, but that’s really just my preference, rather than an issue with the footage itself. I’d probably rate this as a 6/10, and a slight thumbs up.

    • Brandon vendetta says:

      So here’s my question to you. Would the DVD have been better in your opinion if it had commentary?? Would it have got higher than a 6/10? A simple yes or no will do.

      • Vintage Simon says:

        Brandon – yes, I generally prefer having commentary, but I don’t think it would have made a huge difference to my overall opinion. I can’t remember which match it was now, but there was a moment where somebody had a guy in a lengthy chinlock, and it was a single-shot hard camera from a distance, and time just stood still. There’s a few times, like that, where commentary can help fill in the blanks. Why not just record some commentary, even if it’s just Sean Mooney by himself, for people to turn on *if* they wanted to? Wouldn’t do any harm.

        • Brandon vendetta says:

          Well Simon you did answer yes and even though you said you don’t think it would have changed your overall opinion you still said yes to my question so therefore it would have changed your overall opinion somewhat. I’m not going to repeat everything ive already said in the last few months regarding commentary and this set but just after reading your opinion (which was the first I read by a non writer of this website who has viewed this set) I can already tell alot of other people will also feel the same way. To Anyone else who reads this I would like to hear your opinions as well since most of us on this site have been arguing about this for months now. Now that it’s out I’m curious what you all honestly think.

    • Justin says:

      Id say thats the only time a turtle will be booed. I dont think the ‘God I love being a turtle” line even got a cheer.

      The no commentary didnt hurt it that much but you do get to hear managers like Jimmy Hart & the refs dialogue a lot clearer which i find as a plus. Its a strange comparison but it seems like you always have an announcer talking over a manager while at ringside. Even though its something like Jimmy Hart saying “Come on, Earthquake!” or a ref saying “get back in your corner!” its kind of different since thats the closest thing as commentary.

  2. RCS1988 says:

    If they do a volume 2, it should be hosted by Cathy Kelly & Todd Pettingill, focusing on unreleased matches from SNME, The Main Event, PPV’s, & Monday Night RAW tapings. This could be a potential listing. 60 matches spanning 3 discs 20 matches on each disc.

  6. Patrick Mcnamara says:

    Collectors ; be aware you can get the Raw homecoming episode on dvd in the Raw 20TH Anniversary collection 12 disc dvd set on Amazon for around the same price, and you get 19 other Raw episodes as well. I might be stating the obvious.

  7. Robert emons says:

    Do you guys know what the 3 disc set is for December release yet?

  8. SRB says:

    JB Hi-Fi? I wish we had those types of stores here in the States. Each time I turn around, another media store is closing its doors. While I’m glad these stores are successful in other parts of the world, I’d like to step into a Slim Jim for a piece of the action.

  9. new guy says:

    Lots of egg on lots of faces today, everyone saying there’s no commentary on this DVD might want to take a listen to that intro clip!

    • LP1 says:

      You might want to take a listen again. Those are all soundbites from more famouse matches. None of those are from this set.

    • Daniel Bee says:

      I know I might be answering a troll but I’m doing so in case others get confused. You can hear commentary clips in the trailer and intro above but on the actual matches there is no commentary. Hope that’s clear. 🙂

  10. John says:

    Does WalMart typically have WWE DVDs on release day?

  11. Timothy Thorpe says:

    You should be able to pre order Summerslam off of Amazon in the US now. I was able to last night and it was $14 and change counting tax.
