    Really wished the Cody DVD was getting a US release.

  2. BAS says:

    I was hoping Hardy’s performance not being well received by people within WWE meant his performance would’ve been excluded. I know it wouldn’t make sense since he did the theme for Royal Rumble, but I wouldn’t have missed it from the DVD release, and it also wouldn’t have been the first time a performance was left off because of backlash from people within the company.

    • RabidHeat says:

      Had to go back and read the Rumble report as I didn’t watch the whole PPV. I actually thought you were saying one of the Hardys returned at the Rumble for a minute, lol.

      • BAS says:

        Haha, I found myself doing a double take as well leading to the event because I would immediately think of Matt & Jeff as opposed to the country artist, and I’m not a fan of country music as well so having never heard of him until now is why I did a double take.

  3. RDC says:

    As important as anything, Cody brought renewed spotlight on the importance of a healthy indie scene.

  4. RabidHeat says:

    So now it’s superfluous Press Conferences rather than Raw/Smackdown matches and moments. Great.

  5. Andemoine Winrow says:

    If only they made this a limited edition release with a glow in the dark cover.

  6. Andemoine Winrow says:

    Both the front and back cover look awesome. So glad they added the post event press conference. I saw that on ”YOU-TUBE”. I pre-ordered my copy at”BESTBUY.COM”.
