  1. Ricardo Aguilera says:

    The only thing that sucks there’s no commentary which I wish they did so I won’t fall asleep cus I need some commentary should have Jessie the body but we all know why or at least Bobby the brain and gorilla monsoon would have been awesome

  2. Christian Robinson says:

    Where are the dark matches from Tuesday in texas

  3. The Brooklyn Brawler says:

    What’s with the Barry Horowitz matches? Does anyone really need to see those?

  4. Jason says:

    how come no bu ray? you could fit this on less disks. is it because the film quality of these matches don’t warrant a blu-ray?

  5. Patrick Mcnamara says:

    So excited to get this set when it is released. Love unseen matches,loved the volume 3 of THE Attitude Era dvd collections.

  6. Cmw says:

    Well done wwe,bring on vol 2,3,4

  7. Cmw says:

    Looks awesome!

  8. victor says:

    this looks like a really good dvd im definitely getting it

  9. Tom says:

    I’d rather see TV matches that haven’t been released on DVD yet, best matches and moments from Superstars of Wrestling, Prime Time Wrestling, Wrestling Challenge, etc.
    I want all the buildup to the PPVs that HAVE been released on DVD already.

    • Mike Poulin says:

      Honestly i’d rather have this type of set where it’s matches that I’ve never seen before over the buildups and a DVD of squash matches and segments. Also I feel like a lot of that is either already available on the Network or will be on the network at some point soon.

  10. RCS1988 says:

    I wonder if there will be any hidden extras on this set, like maybe a quick squash match or untelevised interview segment?

  11. Andy Ace R says:

    Not complaining at all bcuz I totally love the match selection except for the squash matches but if they had included Hogan vs Jake from Providence in 86,Savage vs Taker from 91, Warrior vs Flair from 92, it would’ve been great. Hopefully there’ll be a Volume 2 in the future so we can get more unreleased content. Can’t wait for this set to come out.

  12. BigM says:

    I was hoping to see the elimination match

    Men On Mission, Kama, and Psycho Sid vs. Lex Luger, HBK, Razor, and Taker

  13. Guest says:

    Can’t wait to buy this. The ladder matches, bret hart and bulldog match. Oh yeah. I hope this sells great so wwe releases another. Still hoping we get a release on Smokey Mountain Wrestling one day though.

  14. dxd says:

    So the Warrior Rude match on the extras looks like it is from a random houseshow (not a tv taping?). Interesting…

  15. Wrestling Fan says:

    I love how people are saying “oh they forgot to include this match” as if they know those matches exist and WWE just thought “nah we’re not putting this on it”. They’re all dark matches! No one knows what they have cause no one has seen them! Get the concept?

    • LP1 says:

      But people DO know they exist. They’re not just coming up with random matches that they hope exist. The matches people are naming all happened at TV tapings, just like the ones on this set. Now granted you can’t include everything on one set, so hopefully there will be several more of these types of releases.

      • Wrestling Fan says:

        But how is anyone for sure they have them? You can read ring results all you want, but it doesn’t mean the cameras kept rolling all night

        • LP1 says:

          It’s pretty common knowledge that on TV taping nights WWE records everything. That’s been their regular procedure going back decades. Is it possible they didn’t record every single last match? Maybe, but not likely.

          • Wrestling Fan says:

            How long have you worked for WWE?

            • RabidHeat says:

              As he said, it’s what’s called “common knowledge”. That means over the years, people who work for WWE have made it known, whether via shoot interviews, word of mouth etc. Therefore you don’t have to work for WWE to know that they do this. It’s not LP1’s fault that you have never come across this information before.

              • LP1 says:

                Also I’ve been to a ton of TV tapings going back from the 80’s until today and there’s always cameras rolling for everything. From the opening dark match until the final match of the night. I can’t remember a TV taping where there wasn’t a camera man at ringside for any match. Now does that mean they recorded every match ever at these tapings? Possibly not, bust likely yes.

                • LP1 says:

                  *but likely yes

                  • Wrestling Fan says:

                    Do you two room together in Stamford and drive to work every day together? Sounds like a sweet gig!

                    • RabidHeat says:

                      Yes, yes we do. That’s exactly it.

                    • LP1 says:

                      Rabidheat, don’t even bother responding to this guy. I’m trying to have a logical conversation and they respond with ignorant comments.

                    • Wrestling Fan says:

                      Logical conversation? I say “how can you be so sure they have the matches?” and you say “because they do, I’ve seen cameras at the events I went to” That doesn’t sound logical to me, that sounds like you’re guessing. You come off as a know it all and it’s annoying

                    • LP1 says:

                      Other people make points that back up what I’m saying and you start in with rooming together and driving to work together. Those are ignorant comments.

                    • Mike Poulin says:

                      Join the discussion

                    • Mike Poulin says:

                      Also that a lot of the dark matches in the 80’s and 90’s ended up on TV or video

                    • RabidHeat says:

                      LP1 offers an eye witness account of general WWE practice and that isn’t enough to convince you, so you carry on like a spoiled little child. You’re a bizarre excuse for a “Wrestling Fan”.

                    • Wrestling Fan says:

                      HA! An eye witness account! He saw someone hold a camera once so it must be hidden in the tape archives in stamford. Give me a break. He’s a pompous jerk and you all know it

                    • RabidHeat says:

                      Stop mentioning “Stamford”. Okay, very clever – you know where WWE Headquarters is. Grow up. Secondly, have you not noticed that parts where LP1 agrees chat it’s “possible” that not everything was recorded? Therefore he is NOT saying the tapes “must” be in the archives, is he? So how is he pompous? You tool.

                    • RabidHeat says:

                      I love how he couldn’t answer this.

              • whutwhut says:

                it’s also why a release like “Best of Raw: After the Show” can even exist in the first place.

  16. Daniel Wissert says:

    Warrior, Warrior, Warrior!
    Always Believe!

  17. Patrick Dailey says:

    Yes, Flair-Hogan!!! They showed clips from this match on the second Flair DVD set. 14:52 was about as long as they went during their series of matches between October ’91 and March ’92. So, it might be a good one!!!

    Wanted the Brainbusters-Rockers match from Ontario in Jan. ’89, but maybe that’ll be released on another set like this in the future.

  18. Steven Jackson says:

    A really fun and interesting concept for a DVD set. I am intrigued by a lot of these matches and the amount of content is staggering!

    I am eagerly anticipating an in-depth review of this one in the coming months 🙂

  19. Roland Smitts says:

    Looking up a few of the tapings from where these matches are listed from, I noticed Savage vs Morales does not come up in results from Binghamton 10/86. This would be taping where Savage attacked Steamboat with the ring bell. So unless the online source just overlooked it, I’m not sure where exactly the Savage-Morales match comes from (it’s not MSG, that definitely aired).

    • RCS1988 says:

      If you looked at Graham’s site, some of the TV tapings are incomplete. There are a lot of TV tapings on that site that are incomplete, so no one know other matches happened at those.

  20. Kristina Hayes says:

    They left out August 26, 1994 in Des Moines, Iowa. 3 days before the undertaker returned at Sumerslam on August 29th, he beat Yokozuna in a casket match. Ted Dibiase and his fake undertaker originally came out to wrestle the match but then Paul Bearer brought a casket out with the real undertaker inside and Ted Dibiase and the imposter ran away. I would love to watch this entire thing play itself out on a DVD someday.

  21. ILoveRepeats says:

    Decent list. I would have loved to see the following:

    WrestleMania 10 – Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramon

    • RabidHeat says:

      Lol, you put that across in a funny way, I’ll give you that. Even though you are the name-changing troll that nobody likes.

  22. Donald says:

    Amazing list, will be picking this one up. People should quit knocking the list, if there’s a match you want to see, just view it on the network or find it online…

  23. Joe Young says:

    Should’ve included:

    Hogan Vs. Roberts

    Savage Vs. Undertaker

  24. donny m says:

    This Dvd looks fantastic but there are some matches missing that I would have loved to see:
    Kamala/vs/King Kong Buddy, Ricky Steamboat/vs/Ted Dibiase,Hulk Hogan and Bruno Sammartino/vs/One Man Gang and King Kong Buddy,Randy Savage/vs/Ricky Steamboat(cage),Roddy Piper/vs/Adrian Adonis(Andre The Giant special ref)

    • Mr Nash says:

      Hope also that all the unseen King of the Ring events will be completely released on DVD and Blu-Ray. Matchlist looks great, but I was really hoping to see these awesome matches:
      -Jake the Snake Roberts VS Hulk Hogan

      and too many to name. They must continue with volume 2 and so on. Also releasing WWF cards from PWI.

  25. Wayne says:

    Saw in youtube there was a promo for a match between Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage & Ricky Steamboat vs Hart Foundation & Honky Tonk Man. But could not find the match

  26. yeahitsme says:

    So not only is Barry Horowitz on this three times and Dale Wolfe two times (if the extras are true) but Diesel and Yokozuna are only on it once and Razor Ramon is not on it at all. We may never see a crazier DVD set.

  27. smartmark says:

    a lot of the 90’s matches were taped for various shows so I bet some will include commentating

    • chris says:

      They would have to have present day announcers do it. None of these matches ever aired, so no commentary would have been done at the time.

      • RCS1988 says:

        It’s always possible that they did commentary for it, but then never used the match for anything.

        • chris says:

          I guess it’s possible for the 1986-88 matches, although unlikely, but from June 1988 forward, all the commentary was done in post-production.

  28. mabel says:

    this set will be the worst ever, who wants old dinosaurs like Hogan, taker, flair, savage, etc plus countless jobber matches. They should have made a set over the god of wrestling, mr. john cena.

    • RabidHeat says:

      Every other poster below disagrees, so you know … whatever, young’un.

      • mabel says:

        Cena is GOD! He created & destroyed the dinosaurs! He would beat everyone in there prime (Hogan, savage, flair, steamboat, etc)He is god! No one can touch him but in a few years there might be a new god named ROMAN REIGNS!

    • Roland Smitts says:

      You do realize a dinosaur would crush your little Cena to death, right?

  29. Patrick J McNamara says:

    Pardon my language, but this is f***ing awesome. I am definitely going to own this set. It looks awesome.

    • RabidHeat says:

      “Pardon my language, except don’t, because I’m gonna just say it anyway, without censoring it at all.

  30. Ryan says:

    WCW Unreleased matches next? Or maybe one for the minor wrestling shows like WCW Thunder, Shotgun Saturday, Jakked, Superstars, Velocity, etc. Both of those would be great.

  31. frank says:

    the extra list has 2 papa shango-warrior matches, wtf

  32. Mark says:

    Savage vs warrior in 2 different matches? Seems excessive. Warrior vs Shanghai in 3 different matches, if the bonus features are true, seems like overkill. With technology these days 45 matches is nothing considering the debut matches will be short. I’m hoping the bonus matches will be clarified later. A few matches looks good.

  33. Anthony says:

    I was hoping they would include Roddy Piper vs Undertaker in a body bag match from 1991, but otherwise an awesome set. Can’t wait to get it!

  34. The Midnight Jobber says:

    Earthquake Evans vs… PAUL ROMA!!! It’s happening! WWE is finally hearing my cries! The original phenom so the wwf/wwe is getting the dvd treatment! Can you say “Paul Roma: The Ultimate Collection” 4 disc dvd set (yes, 4 discs) in 2017???

  35. Ripper the Clown says:

    I love the old DVD matches with no commentary; in my opinion, it’s the closest thing to sitting in an arena back in the day and watching matches that you will find.

    This set looks amazing … but I only wish they had included Jake Roberts vs Hulk Hogan in this collection–or at all else, the infamous Snake Pit where Jake DDT’d Hogan. With all the talk about that Snake Pit segment over the years, one would think it would be a given for this collection.

  36. Matshy says:

    Why would they have no commentary I remember hulk hogan unrealeased matches all had commentary

    • chris says:

      This entire set is made up of content never intended to air, so no commentary was ever recorded. For Hogan’s set, most of the matches already had commentary, and JR and Lawler voiced over the rest.

      • Marshy says:

        Chris do think they will have commentary for some or defo no commentary at all. Or will there be voice overs.

    • LP1 says:

      Hogan’s set had mostly matches that were shown on Prime Time Wrestling, MSG, Spectrum, Prism and other networks that aired live events.

  37. Daniel Wissert says:

    Warrior, Warrior, Warrior!
    – It’s about damn time that Ultimate Warrior made it on the cover of a DVD!
    – Warrior, Warrior, Warrior!

  38. Cracker_Jack says:

    Awesome match listing. These are the kind of releases I dreamed of, when I first started collecting WWE dvd’s in 2004. I would love to see a WCW/NWA version of this, with content not previously released on DVD/BD. Also a territories version featuring JCP/AWA/WCCW/Florida/Memphis/SMW/USWA matches would be spectacular.

    • whutwhut says:

      unfortunately I’m pretty certain the best bet for that would be some sort of “Hidden Gems” collection on the Network.

  39. Roland Smitts says:

    For those dreading the possible lack of TV announcer commentary: you’d be better off letting these gems stand as is. Sean Mooney wasn’t the best play by play guy and I doubt he’s any better now. Or…would you really want Michael Cole and JBL or whomever dubbing some sort of ironic, sarcastic commentary over these? I’d rather watch the matches without someone making fun of what I am watching.

    • whutwhut says:

      the best option would probably be optional commentary (similar to the alternate commentary on some other releases).

    • Ryan says:

      Exactly. The absolute last thing on the world I want is JBL and Cole talking over gems like these. if they had some kind of alternate commentary that was optional it should feature the guys who were in the match and someone like Corey Graves where they can dicuss the match and circumstances surrounding it. Unfortunately most of the wrestlers featured have passed away or aren’t affiliated with WWE anymore.

      • Roland Smitts says:

        Pretty much. Yeah if I am going to watch an amazing collection such at this, last thing I want to hear is Cole and JBL fake laughing & trying to act cute over stuff I want to enjoy, or making unfunny references to Hogan’s trial or whatever.

  40. Indyfan says:

    I really hope there isn’t some best buy exclusive or some shit. But if those extras are on it, it’s way to much for 3 discs

  41. Roland Smitts says:

    I did find one oversight: I was certain we’d see the tryout match for Dwayne Johnson against the Brooklyn Brawler. He wore white boots a size too small. Lol. It was his first pro match, before even Flex Kavana.

      Phantasio vs. Rad Radford
      St. Louis, MO • July 26, 1995

      • Roland Smitts says:

        WrestlingDVDNews can you guys confirm this? This would make the total nearly 60 matches. Not that anyone is begging for Phantasio vs. Rad Radford but still…

        • SCSA says:

          I doubt they could fit so many on three discs! They may as well present Blu-ray edition otherwise!
          Besides ‘Fremantlemedia’ haven’t listed it;

          Nor has wrestlingdvdnetwork

          • LP1 says:

            Unlesw there’s gonna be a store-exclusive with a bonus 4th disc like they did for the Piper release and the Hogan Anthology release.

            • Indyfan says:

              Sorry for the double post.

              I really hope not. Store exclusives suck for people who don’t have those stores near them or don’t have them in their country. If they do decide that…it should be an amazon exclusive so people can easily obtain it.

        • Daniel Bee says:

          Hey guys. We have a document listing all the matches which comes straight from WWE. What you see in the above article (our one on this site) is definitely what you’ll get!

          Don’t know how any new matches could have surfaced in between time and 411 credited WDN at the beginning of their post. Nonetheless we’ll look into it what happened there.

          • LP1 says:

            PWInsider is also listing these extra matches. I’m curious where they got this info from.

            • Indyfan says:

              I really hope not. Store exclusives suck for people who don’t have those stores near them or don’t have them in their country. If they do decide that…it should be an amazon exclusive so people can easily obtain it.

        • whutwhut says:

          while I’m not “begging” for it, I think it would make a fun addition.

          (I remember watching this match – (official WWE youtube account), which turned out to be Phantasio’s ONLY match, and being amused by that strange gimmick)

      • SCSA says:

        The April 5th match 1993 doesn’t state the IC title on the line on the link that ‘Chris’ gave of;

        • chris says:

          It is a title match.

          WWF @ Phoenix, AZ – America West Arena – April 5, 1993 (7,000; 4,500 paid)
          Wrestling Challenge taping:

          Mr. Perfect pinned WWF IC Champion Shawn Michaels to win the title with the Perfect Plex; later in the taping it was announced that Perfect officially won the match via disqualification, for Michaels striking original referee Bill Alphonso, and that the decision of second referee Dave Hebner was overruled by WWF President Jack Tunney

      • Bobby says:

        Warrior vs Kamala I’m sold

      • Domenic says:

        I saw that on 411Mania & PWInsider. Unless they got the wrong information or WDN didn’t get those matches included in their document, it seems sketchy to me.

    • brandon vendetta says:

      What are they having 2 versions being released? One regular and one with an extra disc?

  43. Roland Smitts says:

    One more thing…

    Unless I totally missed it, are we certain all these matches are complete? 45 matches over three discs, aside from the tryout matches (which obviously won’t go too long), either these matches are incredibly short or a lot of them may be JIP.

    • RabidHeat says:

      They probably are just short, to be fair, from that era. Ultimate Warrior matches are guaranteed to be short in themselves.

      • whutwhut says:

        they don’t even have to be THAT short.

        let’s say this has a runtime of about 9 hours (like the upcoming Angle dvd is supposed to be).

        9 hours are 540 minutes. that would make an average of 12 minutes per match.

  44. SCSA says:

    After re-looking at the Match listing, I have to say I’m really looking forward to these matches;

    October 20, 1993
    Lex Luger vs. Ludvig Borga
    – I remember Luger & Borga in those days always around..

    February 1, 1994
    Macho Man Randy Savage vs. Crush
    – As for these two, I hope it’s in connection w/one of my favourite WM matches that they had at Wrestlemania 10 in a falls count anyway match!
    They both had a great rivalry.

    • Tim says:

      The Randy Savage vs Crush match is a lead up to their WrestleMania encounter. They started feuding from October 1993 until April 1994.

  45. Ryan says:

    I know a lot of people complain about no commentary but seeing as how these are all basically house shows and dark matches I doubt there will be commentary and I hope there isn’t. It’s nice to just sit back and listen to the sounds of a good wrestling match. Hopefully they dig up some more unreleased stuff like this and Attitude Era Vol 3.

    • SCSA says:

      I’d say no to that! No commentary can make a match very boring, if you prefer no commentary, just turn it off

      • Ryan says:

        If you think that not having commentary makes wrestling not worth watching then you obviously are not a real wrestling fan.

        • RabidHeat says:

          Of course he can be a “real” wrestling fan. The arrogance of you to say that because somebody prefers something in a different format than you makes them “not a real fan”. Live – yes, okay – no commentary. It’s a different thing when you’re sat home watching on TV.

          • Ryan says:

            He literally said you May as well turn it off without commentary. Commentary can sometimes add to a live PPV or something but for matches from 30 years ago why would you need commentary that bad? I don’t watch wrestling for the commentary and saying that no commentary makes a match not worth watching is ludicrous.

      • LP1 says:

        That doesn’t work because by turning the sound off then you’re also muting the crowd reactions, the action in the ring, etc.

      • brandon vendetta says:

        That is correct scsa it makes it boring but nobody seems to get I’m sure we are not real wrestling fans for saying that and we don’t like live shows either. I already know where this will go some people on here are so predictable. Just watch your DVDs on mute from now on since it means so little to you. And for the record piss on the crowd reaction. Like that matters at all. Now we’re gonna watch matches with no commentary to hear the crowd reaction. I’ve heard it all now gimme a f ing break.

    • Roland Smitts says:

      Not just that, but think of it like this: if the matches contain no commentary (and this is very likely), you’d be better off. Let’s face it, Sean Mooney wasn’t exactly a great play by play guy. And would you really want Michael Cole and JBL or whomever dubbing some hideous, sarcastic commentary over these gems?

    • VintageSimons says:

      So long as I don’t have to suffer through Alfred Hayes’s commentary on every match, I’m happy with whatever commentary track there is (even if there isn’t one).

  46. Ryan says:

    Never again will Barry Horowitz get 3 of his matches on 1 release. In all seriousness this looks awesome and I can’t wait to pick it up. Especially looking forward to the IC championship Ladder matches and the matches with Mr. Perfect, Macho Man, Rick Martel and Rick Rude. Only thing I would have changed is adding more than 1 Owen Hart match.

  47. Roland Smitts says:

    EXCELLENT work by WWE here. So much I am excited to see in this collection. With so many Hogan matches, he really should have made the cover. Out of the 45 matches here, I can say I’ve only seen clips of one: the Hogan/Piper tag match. A minute of footage made it into a Coliseum Video teaser.

  48. brandon vendetta says:

    This set looks great definitely getting it however nothing was mentioned about there being commentary or not. This comment might upset alot of people but oh well but if there is no commentary at all on this set then it hurts the set in my opinion. Attitude vol 3 would have been great if it had commentary but it only did on one match. Even if there’s only commentary on half the matches I would be happy but another set of unreleased with no commentary will really hurt this set in my opinion. I’m buying it either way but it will be so much better with commentary. Keeping my fingers crossed.

  49. Nicolas Hébert says:

    WWE Championship Match
    Bret “Hit Man” Hart vs. Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart
    Montreal, QC • October 21, 1994

    OMG!!! A match from the Montreal Forum!!!

    • RCS1988 says:

      Some dates might be off, but for the most part are right. I just hope it sells well, then it would lead to more volumes and more unreleased content on superstar DVD’s.

  50. WWE PPV Collectors says:

    Does any of these matches were from PPV???

    • LP1 says:

      Nope. Not one of these matches have been shown anywhere. Not TV, PPV, VHS, DVD, BD, the Network. Only the fans in the arenas saw them.

  51. Bobby says:

    Warrior and Bret vs Shango and Kamala has me sold

  52. Anan says:

    Wow! Unreleased indeed! Don’t remember the last time I saw a Pedro Morales match on a wwe set. Macho King, King Duggan, Tazmaniac, War Eagle, Dingo Warrior and other rarely released content of pre popular names of wrestlers more widely recognized by more popular names.

    • Roland Smitts says:

      The last time we saw Pedro in a DVD set was, I believe, the WWE Championship one. Pretty sure a set has since come out with the NFL vs WWE battle royal though.

  53. Jon says:

    No wmX ladder match?….best DVD in years day one full price buy for me very excited!!

  54. josh says:

    Are they going to release a blu ray set with extra bonus features? It still looks like a good set, they have matches with Demolition and Rockers vs. Powers of Pain. It looks like a good set, even if they’re not going to release a Blu-ray set with other bonus features.

    • whutwhut says:

      not going to happen, as the WWE at the moment doesn’t release any match compilations as blurays anymore.

      that being said, with a release like that which only contains old footage I’m fine with no bd since such a release would only be upscaled content anyway (which afaik makes no difference to the upscaling capabilities of a good player).

      (unlike the Seth Rollins set which really should have been a bluray as well because most of its content was initially broadcast in hd)

  55. d.p. says:

    I wonder if the last match is the now infamous cage match between Diesel & Yokozuna that went only around a minute just because Nash wanted to piss off Bill Watts backstage.

  56. yeahitsme says:

    I really wanted the Shawn/Bret teaming up and the Diesel/Yoko cage match. I got them. Good stuff here.

  57. Alex says:

    The Turtles! That was my very first wrestling show ever! I was 7 years old and I marked for the Turtles so hard and wondered why they were never on tv. Can’t wait to relive it.

  58. RabidHeat says:

    Bit confused – the following match was mentioned in the other article yesterday, but is now not listed above:

    The Ultimate Warrior & Legion of Doom vs. Demolition
    Madison Square Garden, circa 1990.

    • LP1 says:

      Daniel Bee said it was just speculation about that match. It wasn’t confirmed because WWE was still in the process of choosing the matches.

      • Daniel Bee says:

        Yeah, we may have been thrown a red herring or two (unless Warrior shows up in that one, don’t think so) – the Taz match we named did make it.

  59. chris says:

    The Hart/Neidhart match on disc 3 is the only house show match on the set.

    I’m surprised the Savage/Undertaker dark match from July 1991 wasn’t included.

    • Anan says:

      I’m not really surprised. Especially on sets like this but really on any non Undertaker set, content involving him is pretty rare. The Attitude Era vol.3 might be one of few exceptions if not the only one. This set has 3 Taker matches while Savage, Warrior, etc have more. It’s not a complaint by any means at all as this is an awesome set of unreleased material. I can only speculate that the reason Taker content is usually rare is bc they’re saving it for a set on him which I hope to God will have the ultimate career spanning retrospective documentary which is fine for dvd for those who prefer that but hoping it gets a bluray release as those discs can fit more content into them.

  60. SCSA says:

    I’m interested in about 19-20 matches in this set. Still, I’m not sure so interested in buying it as I only like to buy & watch Blu-Ray’s.
    However, (Fremantlemedia) always give a good offer for when buying 3 & since I’m interested in 2 other Blu’s, I rekon I’ll be pre-ordering this one!

  61. Mike Poulin says:

    How come you can’t pre order this on Amazon yet

  62. Mark says:

    The turtles, who the f**k is that? A day one for me, love jobber matches of days past. Listing looks solid

  63. Brandon Ray says:

    Sounds awesome. But there won’t be a bluray version?

  64. Albert says:

    Wonder if WWE record some commentary for a few of these matches? That’d be cool 🙂

    • yeahitsme says:

      Yeah it would. Looks like a decent amount of this was on tv or coliseum so a lot of it already has old commentary. It’s a nice balance.

      • yeahitsme says:

        actually now that I look at it I think none have commentary from that era which is the only bad thing about this set

        • chris says:

          Yeah, everything on this set was never used, so it’s likely none of it has commentary.

          • RCS1988 says:

            The only matches I think that have live commentary are these.
            Big John Studd, King Kong Bundy & Bobby “The Brain” Heenan vs. The Machines (Big Machine, Super Machine & Hulk [Hogan] Machine)
            Baltimore, MD • September 16, 1986

            Macho Man Randy Savage vs. Pedro Morales
            Binghamton, NY • October 28, 1986

            Hulk Hogan & “Rowdy” Roddy Piper vs. Paul Orndorff & Harley Race
            Phoenix, AZ • December 9, 1986

            The Dingo Warrior vs. Jose Estrada
            Indianapolis, IN • June 23, 1987

            Handicap Match
            Hulk Hogan & “Macho Man” Randy Savage vs. The Honky Tonk Man & The Hart Foundation (Bret Hart & Jim Neidhart)
            Huntsville, AL • January 5, 1988

            Owen Hart vs. Barry Horowitz
            Bristol, TN • March 8, 1988

            WWE Championship Match
            “Macho Man” Randy Savage vs. Andre the Giant
            New Haven, CT • April 21, 1988

            As for the others, they might of had a commentary track put on to be used for Coliseum Video, but ended up not being used.

  65. whutwhut says:

    crazy listing including all the big names of that time. definitely going to preorder this one.

  66. kevin mullins says:

    wow just wow cant wait to get my hands on this

  67. Ricardo Aguilera says:

    No Blu Ray wtf I’m still going to get it why cus I don’t have none of these matches and that’s what I like about it can’t wait for it

  68. mike Ford says:

    I do not see it listed yet on the US site—any ideas when (or if) it will be?

  69. Matthew Miller says:

    Not bad of a selection of matches. I wish Mr.Perfect vs Tito Santana for the IC Title was on this set but still pretty good match listing.

    • whutwhut says:

      somehow I doubt this ever going to end up on dvd. at this point it’s probably more likely that our best chances to see it in good quality is when “Superstars” gets eventually added to the Network.

  70. John Peterson. says:

    This set looks amazing.hope it does well where to the point we can get more sets like this.

  71. George says:

    Incredible DVD!!!I love old school wrestling!!!

  72. VintageSimone says:

    This is a definite day one purchase for me, even though there’s not one specific match I’m dying to see.

    I wonder if the Undertaker vs. Giant Gonzalez rematch the day after WMIX was any better than the abortion the day before?

  73. Indyfan says:

    Looks great. Wish there were some Rougeau brother matches. Don’t really care for the tryout matches. I hope there are some great matches but I’m not overly optimistic.

    At this point I want WWE to release A Best of Coliseum video set

  74. Rocky999 says:

    I don’t usually buy dvds as I’m one of those blu ray guy’s lol but how can i not buy this. This is perhaps my favorite match listing of any compilation set ever. Another Bret Hart vs British Bulldog match YES PLEASE

  75. RabidHeat says:

    A truly fantastic listing, I’m really happy with this. Just a couple of things I’m wondering from those more ‘in the know’ than me regarding dates/tapings, etc:

    1). Was anything here included on any Coliseum Video compilations?

    2). Do we think there will be commentary on any of these matches at all, or pretty much on none of them like The Attitude Era Vol. 3?

  76. Straightedge47 says:

    Will these matches look like most matches did at the time or will they be fan-cam style footage like the attitude era unreleased dvd?

  77. ILoveRepeats says:

    Hahaha no Tom Magee!! I love it!!!

  78. LP1 says:

    Tremendous listing. And they stuck true to the never-before-seen theme. Can not wait for this. This is a concept where they can get several volumes out of it.

    • Joshua Jones says:

      I agree, this is a fantastic set. I hope it’s successful and they do more of them in the future.

  79. some guy says:

    Does anyone know why WWE had so many empty arena matches at the time? Did they have trouble selling tickets?

    • Mike Poulin says:

      They weren’t empty arena matches i’m sure the arena’s for the most part were sold out their called Dark matches as they were not put on TV

  80. Dave says:

    Looks very promising!

  81. Jamey Behlke says:

    This is a really great set. I can’t wait to buy it. This set is just unbelievably great. They made this set look wonderful. So many matches never been seen and this again looks great. I knew this set would be great and I wish it was already here. I’d get it in a second.

  82. Tommy D says:

    Fantastic listing. And for anyone wondering, The Toxic Turtles are Duane Gill and Barry Hardy.
