– WWE Over the Limit 2012 is now available to download on iTunes, Vudu.com, Xbox live & Playstation Store. It’s priced at $2.99 per match (HD) & $1.99 (SD), with a season price of $14.99 (HD) & $12.99(SD). There are 9 matches on offer.
* 20 Man Battle Royal
* Kofi Kingston & RTruth vs Dolph Ziggler & Jack Swagger
* Brodus Clay vs Miz
* Ryback vs 2 Jobbers
* Cody Rhodes vs Christian
* Layla vs Beth Phoenix
* Fatal Four Way: Sheamus vs Alberto Del Rio vs Chris Jericho vs Randy Orton
* WWE Champion CM Punk vs Daniel Bryan
* John Cena vs John Laurinaitis
POV: Over the Limit 2012 is a mixed bag of decent matches and plenty of fillers, which is represented in the price of the season. Not many people are going to pay $2 for a Ryback or Brodus Clay squash match, and buying each match works out at almost double the season price. There’s the issue of whether or not Johnny Ace in action should have closed the PPV, but my pick of a worthy downloads is the WWE Championship title bout – CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan – an awesome singles contest all about the strap, with a decent finish.
– WWE has also released their recent Home Video title Falls Count Anywhere digitally, across three volumes. This has hit Vudu.com, Xbox Live, Playstation and Amazon Instant Video to purchase. It’s available in SD, HD and HDX formats. Rental is available from July 24th.
POV: This one takes a look at some of the best matches that under the Falls Count Anywhere banner (which seems a little loose) and covers 3 different eras. The first volume covers 1981 to 1997 with a few WCW matches thrown in on the side, the second volume focuses on the Attitude Era, whilst the third some of the last decade. There are some notable matches missing from this collection and personally I didn’t think much of first volume’s selection since it was very random. As a fan of Attitude, you can’t complain with the quality of matches too much since this era really pushed the boundaries as hardcore brawling became mainstream. As with most digital volume releases, it doesn’t work out cost effective to purchase these 3 volumes (almost twice the price of the physical DVD set). Worth waiting until they appear on Netflix.
– WWE’s other recent release is their classic movie from 1989 starring Hulk Hogan – No Holds Barred. That’s available to rent and purchase on Xbox Live and Amazon Instant Video. Due to the age of the movie, this title isn’t available in HD.
POV: No Holds Barred is a bit of fun for those that remember it from when they were kids, but personally it’s not a movie I would want to watch more than once. Perfect rental or viewing on Netflix (eventually).

It is not my first time to pay a quick visit this web page, i am browsing
this web page dailly and get good facts from here every
“No Holds Barred is a typical 80’s flick that tries to incorporate a similar theme to Rocky. Considering Hogan’s part in those movies, it’s easy to see why WWE wanted to cash in.”
Uh, what? The closest thing to Rocky in No Holds Barred is Rip’s brother getting beaten up by Zeus and Rip faces him at the end. Basically replace Rip’s brother with Apollo Creed, Zeus with Ivan Dragon and Rip with Rocky. That one VERY SMALL similarity to Rocky, the rest of the movie is pretty different. And ‘Hogan’s part in those movies’, Hogan was in ONE OF THEM for probably around five minutes. It wouldn’t kill you guys to do a little bit of homework. I mean, I love this site, it’s a great source of news but stuff like this is ridiculous.
Fair points. One author’s review (POV in this case) is not necessarily the same as the rest of us here, but I agree it reflects on the whole site once published. I’ll edit that.
If you are inferring that other parts of the site are ‘ridiculous’ too, then do share. It’s been very important to me since the beginning to ensure only credible information is put out. I think we’ve done a good job sticking to that.
Thanks for visiting.
Age has nothing to do with whether a film is released in HD or not.
Not entirely true. A HD release for older movies would need a digital restoration/upgrade or it won’t look any different from the DVD.
Yet every commercial and ad for No Holds Barred says “digitally remastered”. So there’s no excuse for not releasing the movie in HD.
