I recently purchased the 2010 elimination chamber dvd and i like that they made an anthology of it. I don’t like that they don’t make sets like that any more. Does anyone know if wwe is ever going to make a hell in a cell anthology
There is already a Hell in a Cell set
[…] for the content of the discs inside, they squeeze in almost 30 of the most memorable SmackDown matches and moments as WWE went to work selecting footage from the blue brand between the years 1999 and […]
The match from August 9, 2001 is actually Chris Jericho vs. Hugh Morrus (not Jericho vs. Rhyno, as stated in the article).
Where the hell is the big dog kg SmackDown the undertaker come on there should’ve been some undertaker matches or moments on this set like the unholy alliance vs rock and sock connection or edge cashing in the world title on undertaker
Being WWE fan in Australia unless can afford Foxtel only get WWE events etc via DVD and Blu-Ray releases, any likelihood of NXT plus NXT UK 205 Live Main Event other programming having annual best of year releases like Raw & SmackDown and any More In Your House releases plus what about history of WWE Women’s, WCW & ECW championships
The WCW is the World Heavyweight Championship they released that DVD in 2009.
Clearly that’s a typo with almost 30 matches. I counted it once and think I barely got 20.
It’s nearly 30 matches AND moments (combined).
Oh my dear God .. that is a really horrible set ! Seriously ! Is that how WWE celebrate !
WWE should stop releasing dvds anymore .. they become very very lazy .
That jump from 2011 – 2017 is horrid.
Maybe it has something to do with the Best of Raw and Smackdown sets? They have released sets covering those years.
Up until 2016, Smackdown was pretty bad throughout 2012-15 so those years missing isn’t a total loss.
Smackdown ’17 was pretty bad post superstar shake up, but some other years missing isn’t as bad as it seems. But I would’ve included Undertaker Vs. Dean Ambrose for the significance of that being Undertaker’s last TV match. (For now)
100% agree! Maybe one Shield match from 2013 would have covered the gap nicely, but it would have been more than enough
That’s exactly what i just said to myself, also not enough of 2002, where’s billy and chuck wedding ceremony with Eric Bischoff
Disappointed should have been a 3 disk and added stuff never release at least why always skip a year or two or damn not only that they skip 6 year’s no love for 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 and another years 2007 and 2010 2007 was the best year’s for that brand oh well
unfortunately this is a good example of the issues with two discs for releases like this: there is A LOT of things which could be considered “missing” on this set.
I mentioned this in my other reply but in recent years the only things constantly worth buying (besides the blurays of the big four) are/were those “Unreleased” sets (although I’d argue the Hardy set was fine as well).
it’s kind of unfortunate because in theory there would be lots of potential other sets. and it’s not even like there are Network Collections that could serve as “substitutes” for each one either.
(since one of the big selling points of the past for many people was also an extensive, in-depth documentary/biography)
Another question for everyone. Had their been a third disc, what would you have put on it?
One of the most obvious ones for me, would be Big Show vs Del Rio from January 2013. Infact, Big Show isn’t even on the front or back cover which is surprising.
Serious question for everyone. If you don’t understand why they still make DVDS due to the Network, and think everything now is “trash” or “garbage”…why do you even come to this site?
Mostly just curious about if they will release something cool, as they do occasionally dip into the vaults and do something unique.
Not sure why people would get mad at this set, these sorts of Raw/Smackdown sets are always guaranteed to just be the major clips, and while you could quibble with what makes the cut, there’s not much point.
I come to this site to see what is happening in the media world of WWE. I anticipate things only continuing downhill, but could also be wrong. While I do think most of the release themes have been a waste, the real issue is the lack of care put into the sets (cheap packaging, heavy repeats, cutting back on discs, etc.) I am indeed one of those people who does not really understand what’s been going on in the WWE media department, but as a general fan of wrestling and the product, I’m not ready to walk away entirely yet.
My sentiments exactly.
A six-year gap in content is pretty crap, though.
This is actually pretty good. I love that 1999-2004 gets a whole disc, then they skip a whole six year period. That’s kinda admitting something on their part.
Lol at the 6 year gap
Why little love for 2009?
The last video i purchased was attitude era vol 2. With the wwe network i dont see no point anymore. The releases arr garbage. What happend 2 when they use 2 add alot of content. Example mania 22 dvd was loaded with content
No offence, but the Attitude Era Vol 2 set was 5 years ago (2014). Why are you even on the site if you haven’t bought one single release since then?
despite all the (imo: valid) criticism, to argue that there has been NO worthwhile set since the second “Attitude Era” one seems weird.
I mean, I’d say even the third one of that series was interesting (while it didn’t include “classics”, it had countless matches featuring the biggest stars that the vast majority of people had never seen before).
This should’ve been a 20 episode set. If not that, then I would’ve been cool if they did a 3rd disc with the pilot episode.
my theory was correct this dvd set was going to be disappointing. if this was done like the wwe raw box set it would had been better
With the WWE Network being a thing, I am not even sure why the WWE releases DVDs anymore. I get that people still collect them, but in the past few years the releases have been piss poor with match selections for things. It’s a far different era than it was in 2004 when we got the likes of Ric Flair’s 3 disc set, the Rise and Fall of ECW, and others.
with a few exceptions though, imo all those sets that featured a mix of unreleased, unseen etc. matches are/were worth the purchase.
Good point and references to past sets that were very worth buying. The Flair set was terrific and the ECW set is an absolute must have. I also think of the first Bret Hart set and believe those are truly when WWE releases were worth buying even at high prices when they first came out. I really miss the anthology sets too.
There is an extreme lack of Undertaker on this set.
Shouldve put Taker vs Angle from 2006 on this
Taker vs Kurt Angle from 2003 and 2006 were both WM quality matches except for the ending where when Taker was about to win, Lesnar whacked him with a chair in 2003 & Mark Henry splashed him through a table in 2006.
A great WM quality match that had a clean decisive win that did not have any interference in it….Taker vs Cena from 2004. All 3 definitely should’ve been included. But if just one had to be picked I’d go w/Taker vs Cena bc since I hated how the 2 Taker vs Angle matches had interference since otherwise thos matches were top quality great!
I think ‘it sucks’ is a good way to describe this dvd and all wwe dvds from last few years. I think last wwe dvd i got was the hbk unreleased match one and that was so so .
That is a really bad set, a bunch of repeats. That’s really lazy by the WWE and I was hoping for better but sadly I will pass on this
Only 2 discs? What a joke, honestly. This is why I can’t get excited about WWE dvds anymore. No matches or segments from 2007, lol k…
Smackdown 20 should of been a 3 or 4 disc set for the gap in between 2011 and 2017 and really digging the extreme rules 2019 front cover!
Pass for me. Too many repeats. Lol at the massive 6 year gap between 11 and 17
This seems like a pretty decent release and although I still visit this site from time to time, it just seems that WWE releases have lost their magic (for me personally). I think the last set I bought was the WWE24 set, took a few months to really decide if I wanted to continue the collection or not, and I just don’t have the need to go out and buy every single thing WWE release any longer. The product continues to change in a regressive way and I just found too many uneventful releases and the cutting back of media type and disc quantity is really enough to pull the fun out of the entire thing. Just my perspective on things. Again, this looks like a pretty good release though.
Yeah I totally agree. I really stopped collecting after the Kevin Owen’s release. Once they stopped producing bluray and stacked the discs up on top of each other on discs full of repeats that was enough for me. Took the fun out of the whole thing. I used to love coming here and checking out the new cover art and get amped up. Now I couldn’t care any less.
I predict that what may end up happening is that WWE will keep releasing things that would normally get a physical release, but they will just end up on the Network, phasing out the process entirely. We went from 3-disc sets to 2-disc sets and may even go down to one disc in the future. Too many negative changes have happened for me to think otherwise. I found specials like certain WWE 24 episodes and WWE 365 had much more power as documentaries than what was being released on DVD. Therefore, the quick documentary portions on the DVDs have been either very weak or just basically non-existent.
Makes complete sense to me. I thought this too since the Network launched in 2014 and had not just the documentary portions of sets like Bret Hart, Austin, HHH, etc available either at launch or over time but had Network exclusives that still to this day remain as Network exclusives. I mean where else will you get whatever is on The Network especially in that high quality?
However w/that said not everyone is subscribed to The Network and not everyone will be no matter what so the phasing out process will not make them happy. But in WWE’s mind this is how they’ll get more subscribers.
“This seems like a pretty decent release”
Except for the severe lack of Taker content. He carried SD from 2002-2010 when he stayed there during the Draft every 1 of those years. It’s why I’m not the biggest Best Of type collection releases…..little to no Taker content on them.
