    If they don’t include most of his early Memphis matches which defined his career, this set is a lost cause. 2015 still wwe won’t do a decent andre the giant set. LOL

    • RCS1988 says:

      There are tons of stuff that they could release sets on Andre & Sammartino. I miss the fantasy concept feature on here. I remember the days of Coliseum Video, where they would ask for your input. These days they don’t want your input.

  2. RabidHeat says:

    Apologies as this is very off-topic, but I’ve been waiting for another topic that might be relevant and it never appears, lol. Why does WWEDVD.co.uk seem so scared to re-release any full PPVs pre-2010 on DVD (they only even have a couple of 2009 ones)?

    I do get that most would probably not sell all that well, but it seems silly that the huge ones like the very best ‘Manias and Summerslams of the past don’t get released. Surely awesome WrestleManias like 19, 22 and 23 would sell. Plus, they randomly have WrestleMania 21 for sale, but none of the others pre-‘Mania 25.

    I’m assuming it’s not a “PG Era” thing since they show Attitude Era moments on the compilation sets they still sell? Or is it not wanting to release too many PPVs pre-HD era (though that began in 2008 and they have nothing from then either)?

    I know you can still just buy used copies of the Silver VIsion versions, it just seems odd that Fremantle wouldn’t want to reap some of the cash from those earlier releases. I was just curious.

  3. alex says:

    I think I’ll pass on the set, I never understood what was so great about Jerry Lawler. I enjoy his commentary, especially during the” attitude era”days but as a wrestler he really isn’t that exciting. His finishing move isn’t great either

    • motorhead says:

      I can see that argument and agree with to some extent. He talks too much, stalls, and doesn’t really wrestle. He was unnecessarily stiff with some guys, hurting them for real in pretty bad ways, and he was political enough in his control, with Jerry Jarrett, that he crushed more than one hopefuls career when he was seen as a threat to Lawler.

      On the other hand, SOME of his matches are genuine classics worth a least a single view. What is more important than his matches, to me anyways, is his story. Because, like it or not, Jerry Lawler was one of the most important and influential wrestling figures of the last 50 years. His program with Kaufman was a true trend setter and opened the door for Vince McMahon to waltz through not with equal celebrity involvement in the ring so much as celebrity infomercials in the form of promos about how great pro wrestling is and how fun and all that jazz. Very overrated wrestler, yes, but his story is worth telling and knowing.

      • SRB says:

        There are tons of guys in the category of ‘not that fun to watch,’ but who have given their entire lives to the business. Lawler is one of them. Let’s admit that guys like Adbullah are a total mess in the ring. At the same time, WWE felt the need to induct him before Savage. Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason. Lawler has been with the WWE for a very long time, which I think is the main reason for releasing the set.

  4. Steiner says:

    Do u guys think Lawler’s girlfriend needs her parents permission to be interviewed?

  5. LP1 says:

    This is already a great looking set. The less WWF-WWE stuff, the better. Hopefully the majority of matches are pre-1993.

    • Mark Markson says:

      I absolutely agree. I really don’t care about his matches with Bret Hart. Unless they find some matches that haven’t been released on VHS, DVD or blu-ray before.

  6. RCS1988 says:

    Probably won’t make the set, but these 2 matches should be included.

    Steel Cage Match
    Jerry Lawler vs. Bret Hart
    Glens Falls, NY October 19, 1993

    Jerry Lawler vs. Owen Hart
    Dehli, NY November 10, 1993

    That match was taped for the 11/21/93 Survivor Series Showdown Special, but didn’t air because of Lawler being removed from the Survivor Series match. I wonder if Lawler’s RAW debut match against Jim Powers will be on there?

  7. motorhead says:

    And we know Austin Idol is coming, sooooooo…..

  8. Anonymous says:

    This is already off to a perfect start.

    And that OVW match sounds insane. Is that Nova the one from ECW?

    • Erik says:

      Yes, it’s the very same Nova from ECW. Mike Bucci who portrayed Nova in ECW and Ohio Valley Wrestling is also the same guy that portrayed the character Simon Dean in WWE from 2004-2006.

  9. Shane A. says:

    How come they didn’t reveal the full match listing

  10. PAul Stott says:

    I hope there will be a Lawler vs Macho Man match from Memphis or when Jerry gets his head shaved in the cafe match against Austin Idol & his tag team partner.

  11. SRB says:

    A long time ago WWE released a 2 disc WCCW set. In the set, Lawler talked about a match between him and Kerry where Kerry came to the ring, was disoriented, and bleeding. Is this the match?

    — AWA & WCCW Championship Unification Match
    Jerry Lawler vs. Kerry Von Erich
    World Class Championship Wrestling • September 24, 1988

    • Mark D says:

      I think the match he was referring to was the SuperClash III match. KVE cut his arm with a blade taped to his finger before thr bell rang. If you watch the match you can see Kerry checking his arm prior to the match then as the bell rings Lawler hits Kerry’s arms across the turnbuckle, to cover up that Kerry cut his arm by accident.

      • SRB says:

        You’re right. Superclash 3 rings a bell. Thanks.

        Why did KVE cut himself though? Lawler made it seem like he was completely confused as to why KVE did that. It was just an accident and the blade was in place for a later spot?

  12. attitude.era.4life says:

    wooow.. I’m already getting hooked on the Lawler set, when I saw an empty arena match against Funk and a Casket match against The Undertaker. Very interesting, what else will come up this Burger-King week.. 😉
