Looking forward to Owen vs Warrior and Dude vs Davey but quite unsure on Yoko vs The Sultan lol
I know, I mean I get that its rare footage, but I’m unsure as to why besides that everybody is getting aroused over owning Yoko vs. The Sultan on DVD, lol.
Your guess is as good as mine my friend lol. Can only be a 2 minute match anyway, surely? I can’t imagine Yokozuna was doing a lot in 1996
I think people are missing the point: There would be zero problem including the 1996 matches as part of the Attitude Era … IF this was the convention followed on the first two volumes.
However, it’s quite clear that they were not categorising 1996 as part of the era on Volumes 1 and 2, so it’s just the inconsistency that bugs me. You can’t change your criteria completely in this way for the third volume in as series.
I can do what I want.
I’m signed up for the free dvds I do hope I win them! Excited!
1996 wasn’t the start of the Attitude Era since it would take another year for storylines to become controversial.
So the Brian Pillman gun incident wasn’t controversial enough? 1996 my friend!
I always saw Austin’s KOTR speech in 1996 as the start of the attitude era. A couple of the matches so far do (briefly) pre-date that, but that’s fine since the bouts sound very intriguing.
WWE likes to change history and make people think that Austin became an instant superstar on the night of King Of The Ring ’96. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Austin continued to be a midcard guy for another 5 months after that. He was still feuding with guys like Marc Mero and Savio Vega after that. He wasn’t even on the SummerSlam card that year. He was relegated to the pre-show match. It wasn’t until his feud with Bret in November ’96 that he really started to get a big push. Also, like I mentioned in a thread yesterday, even though the WWF was doing sole edgy things in 1996, they were still using the term New Generation well into early 1997, and continued using the New Generation logo until late ’97.
*even though the WWF was doing some edgy things in 1996
They also try to say Austin is the biggest star in the history of the business, which is laughable. That’s just an early attempt at Vince trying to scrub Hogan from the history books. Austin was massive in his era, but not the biggest ever.
If you think the Attitude Era is solely defined by adult-orientated controversy, then the Attitude Era did not end until 2008.
Yay for Owen Hart match! I am still hoping for Owen vs Kurt!
Nice selection of matches.
Can you bring back FANTASY CONCEPT too, please?
WIll you shut up about the fantasy concept? It is not coming back so get over it and move on already!
Shut up about Owen vs Kurt.
Two thumbs up, three if I could
Very pleased that the Michaels/Hart/Sid match is being released, have wanted to see that match for years.
Surprised Warrior/Owen made the cut, as that’s the same night as the Curtain Call incident, and I didn’t think they had any hard cams in there that night. Am guessing it will all be handhelds from ringside, which may not be that fun to watch.
Still, this set looks tremendous.
This will be great. The Wall Street will be cool. I wonder if there might be more content from that day. The day WWE became publicly traded.
Wow – actually kinda stoked for this release. This is exactly what WWE DVD releases need to be in this day and age – rare and obscure content that will probably never be uploaded to the WWE Network. This will likely be my first purchase since the Owen DVD.
Though, I feel that the dates on some of these are wrong.
Wow. Talk about obscure. And I love it. The more obscure the better. Plus, getting that Yoko/Sultan match to go with the Austin/Hart match from Sun City is great.
The choices are getting better. Those of you who wanted the most obscure content possible are getting your wish and then some.
The match listings so far are outstanding — I can’t wait to see this stuff. The Yoko match was his second to last in the WWE. Love seeing Owen, and the triple threat match and street fight are also intriguing.
Keep it coming!
Sultan vs yoko?!?!?! Day one purchase!!!!! Plus does this mean it’ll have no commentary on all matches, right?
Not 100% but I think at least some will have commentary. For instance, Ross and Owen were on commentary for the Sun City telecast according to the History of the WWE website.
Jim Ross & Owen Hart did commentary fro the Sun City Superbowl. They should have tryout dark matches from that era like these.
