    This is a great set of matches, I can’t wait to buy this DVD.

  2. richardAdkins says:

    a few Questions. When someone finds the answer please email me? Question One Nwo The Revolution is there any exclusives i need to know about? Question two does the monday nitro vol.2 blue ray set have all the same extras as the dvd versions and then some? Question number 3 does clash of champions only have extras on Dvd or does it have it on blue ray to with the best buy exclusive?

    • Ryan says:

      I can answer one of them for you. The Best Buy exclusives for the Clash are on DVD only. Nothing special really. A MX vs Fantasics match and a Flair vs Hogan.

  3. Colin.V says:

    YES! Finally we get Hulk vs. Arn Anderson!!!

  4. thejmp187 says:

    Long tiime haven’t commented ina while so here’s my expertise. Great dvd. Lots and lots of unreleased material. They really outta put some benoit on it though..its over. But overall it looks delicious and will go right beside my nitro 1 dvd woo!

  5. Mack Truck says:

    sting beating up the nWo should’ve been added either on this set or volume 1.

  6. miz4life says:

    Wish we had Kronik & the brawl from the 6/9/97 Nitro. Other than that Awesomeness.

  7. Anonymous says:

    I wonder if they will not have the WWE logo on the footage again, since they left it off vol 1?

    The WWE logo looks really odd when used with non wwe footage and I wish they wouldn’t do it.

  8. Steven Jackson says:

    Some great matches on here another Eddie Guerrero vs. Rey Mysterio match is great. I cannot wait to watch Liger vs. Malenko, that sounds awesome! La Parka vs. Randy Savage…OOOOOOOOOOOO YEAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!! Can’t wait for volume 3! =)

    • Steven Jackson says:

      The DVD is missing some Curt Hennig though, he had some great matches in WCW, and even a rare dream match against Randy Savage on Nitro. Ah well, maybe next time.

      • Mack Truck says:

        you can find the la parka/randy savage and liger/malenko matches on youtube as well. the latter match is a very good one.

        i’d wish a ddp vs curt hennig match made it onto the set over some of the other matches that featured ddp.

  9. Steven says:

    I don’t remember the March 9th 1998 match of Hogan, Hall, and Nash against Macho Man who was nWo at the time, Sting still WCW not Wolfpack yet and The Giant who’s been long kicked out of nWo. Did Savage turn on Sting and Giant or was this when Hogan and Macho was at odds for the World title and leader of nWo?

    • Dave says:

      Basically was Savage feuding with Hogan for control of nWo and the seeds planted for Nash and Hogan having issues. This was more of the split that was happening with nWo black and wolfpac.

      I thought the match was more of an angle advancement.

      • Steven says:

        Thanks Dave for filling me in on that match. Nothing can top nWo from 1996-till before they broke into two groups.

  10. alex Padilla says:

    You really know what they should come out with the LwO dvd remembering Eddie and all members of the Lwo and their matches !

  11. Anonymous says:

    I’m really bummed by the lack of DDP on this set. They could have easily upgraded the quality of this match listing by adding at least four more Diamond Dallas Page matches.

  12. Anonymous says:

    I would like to see a best of Thunder DVD/Blu-Ray. There were enough good matches in the show’s short history to make it worth buying.

    • Reality Check says:

      Agreed! But, before that, I’d like to see:
      Essential Starrcade volume 2
      Clash of the Champions volume 2
      Great American Bash
      Halloween Havoc

    • captain planet says:

      I’d be interested in that, but from a marketing standpoint, it’s probably safer for them to do a “Ultimate WCW” compilation or something that includes Thunder, Saturday Night, and the remaining major omissions from the Nitro dvds.

      • Reality Check says:

        Not really. Doing it my way gives them the chance to come out with the rest of the best in an Ultimate WCW set after they’ve released these other sets. Starting out with an Ultimate WCW only ensures there’ll be about a maximum of three WCW themed releases as opposed to the 7 I’ve already outlined. Whatever avenue they explore, it’s clear that WCW releases sell very well.

  13. Steven says:

    Great match listing and moments but one moment they left off is when Jeff Jarrett hit Beetlejuice with his guitar backstage, Slapnuts Jarrett said that’s Mr. Slapnuts to you, hahaaaa so hilarious.

  14. Reality Check says:

    If another DDP match never gets released again I’ll be thrilled! There’s five DDP matches on this. Clearly he influenced this because this. I really wish he had nothing to do with this project. I can only imagine how much better it would have turned out. If anyone wants proof, all they need is to see how two non-DDP friends were covered on this set. Flair only has two matches within the 3 DVDs that DDP hosts, while he’s on there another 2 times in the Blu-Ray extras. Scott Steiner only has one singles match during the 3 DVDs and that was pretty much forced as they were looking for a ending point. Steiner has another match in the Blu-Ray extras. Meanwhile, Jeff Jarrett, a co-owner of a rival company, has 2 matches on the 3 DVD set. Not surprisingly, one is against DDP. There are other examples, but those are the most glaring. “Talent” shouldn’t even be consulted when they make DVD sets. DDP clearly had a negative impact on this one.

    • Jay says:

      So your saying you don’t want DDP to be on either Nitro DVD? Come on,DDP was one of the best parts of WCW during its run. DVD looks great,1 I have Volume 1 and might be getting Volume 2.

      • Reality Check says:

        That’s exactly what I’m saying. A DDP-free DVD sounds GREAT to me! Take out his five matches and replace it with a real main eventers five matches.

        • Madness4life says:

          That is a ridiculous comment. Page was routinely involved in hot angles and put on solid matches. If Savage thought he was worthy enough to work a 9 month program with, he was good. I was not a fan of the cigar chomping, jewelry wearing DDP persona in its infancy, but his character only got better and better with time. Truly a fan favorite during the nWo angle and a very entertaining heel during his run with the Jersey Triad. Page earned his spot in WCW history.

          • Reality Check says:

            Did DDP earn his spot or did Kimberly and the friendship with Eric Bischoff earn it for him? I feel Page was a solid midcarder that due to age may not have ever even gotten the chance to be a midcarder had it not been for Kimberly and Eric Bischoff.

            These are my opinions and you have your own.

            But, if you want proof of what the general public thinks of DDP, just look at how the ratings began to plummet once he became a focal point in 1999. Then consider how quickly they got rid of him in the WWE.

            • Madness4life says:

              Not to be redundant, but he earned it.

              • Reality Check says:

                That’s your opinion. You’re entitled to it and I’m fine with it. To me, he was nothing more than a midcarder who got his spot thanks to his wife and relationship with Bischoff. And, the ratings certainly reflect it.

            • captain planet says:

              …Page was older and got injured while in WWE. Feel free to not like him, but you’re just reaching with some of these claims.

              • Reality CHeck says:

                Not reaching at all. These aren’t claims, they’re facts!

                1: His wife was initially the main reason he got as much TV time as they were short on good-looking women and were forced to compete with the likes of Sunny, Sable and Marlena.
                2: He was very good friends with Eric Bischoff dating back to their AWA days.
                3: The ratings started dropping during the time he was WCW world champ.

                I won’t even get into the rumor about Kimberly and Bischoff, because that’s just a rumor and likely isn’t true. The fact that the rumor has circulated though seems to be a pretty good indication that a lot of people can’t understand how DDP got as far as he did and are searching for ways to explain it.

  15. Reality Check says:

    Now that they’ve done this, how about Clash of the Champions Volume 2? They’re still enough great unreleased Clash footage that they could come up with a volume 2 of that very easy.

    Or, better yet, how about a WCW Saturday Night compilation? As long as they stick to pre-1997 stuff, that could conceivably be the best comp they ever made.

  16. MJN says:

    Can’t wait to buy this. Hope to see Volume 3, 4 and 5 down the road. Go WCW!

  17. Steven says:

    This is going to be good, getting it on Blu-ray since I have a Blu-ray player now lol.

  18. Garry says:

    With this and Best of Raw & SmackDown ’12 coming out around the same time.. Don’t think I’ll be leaving my couch at that time period.

  19. Anonymous says:

    This set has three saving graces:
    -DVD #1 is full of some cool footage.
    -The Blu-Ray extras are awesome and better than anything else on the entire set.
    -With the exception of one match, everything on the set is completely unreleased.

    Hopefully this sells well and we get a volume 3 that centers on the extremely rarely seen and quite good 1999 to June 2000 era because all prior years have been well covered. DVD #1 of that future release can be 1995 to the end of 1997. DVD #2 can be 20% 1998 and the rest from 1999. DVD #3 should be 10% from 1999, 70% from the first half of 2000, 10% from the last half of 2000, and 10% from 2001. Now that would be an awesome set full of big-time main events that haven’t been seen since they originally aired. And, with that type of potential, it’s good enough reason to support this Volume 2 release.

  20. james says:

    I can’t fathom how anyone would think this match listing doesn’t deliver…..

    • Dave says:

      Its just people that are NEVER satisfied…they expect nobodies like Disco Inferno, Glacier, Wrath, Buff Bagwell, Vincent and other nobodies to be plastered all over the DVD.

      This list is great, and only 1 match that was on another DVD which was released 10 years ago. All other matches are new and on DVD/Blu-ray for the first time.

      • Reality Check says:

        Those guys are just being trolls and everybody knows it. Who in their right mind would care to see midcarders on a DVD?

        But, the fact remains that there was plenty of stuff left off of this set that would have been better or more significant. Want proof? In April/June 2000, there was seemingly a world title change every week. Yet, this set doesn’t have any of those title changes and only has a total of one match from that Bishchoff/Russo era that was full of hotshotting main events.

      • Anonymous says:

        I am satisfied. It is just that having those guys on here gives the set a sense of balance, rather than telling younger fans who werent around for this era that the whole appeal of this time was cruiserweights and the main eventers. Those guys deserve at least a mention.

  21. mommy says:

    can someone post what are repeats, not counting tagged classics europe stuff, just north america wwe releases

    • TommyD says:

      The only one that is a repeat is Booker/Scott Steiner from the last Nitro. All other matches are first time.

      • Dave says:

        Yup, Steiner vs Booker T was on Best of Confidential Volume 1, i think that DVD is out of print now.

        • james says:

          Definitely out of print, it was released in 2003. You can still find it fairly cheap though.

          • Vincenzzzzzo says:

            You can get Best of Confidential on Amazon US for less than $10. I recently purchased a copy a few months ago and they still have some left on there.

  22. Anonymous says:

    Count me among the many who are very disappointed with this set as I had been hoping for an emphasis on the January 1999 to June 2000 period. Up until April 1999, WCW was still very competitive with the WWF in every way. The slide really started in the summer of 1999, but they rebounded with fresh storylines fand big time main events that featured some of the all-time greats. If you’re looking for WCW at its dullest, it would have to be March 1998 to August 1998, as well as July 2000 to the end. All the good moments from these periods have now been released. Here’s hoping the overlooked and still stellar 1999 to June 2000 period gets a lot of attention in future DVD releases!

  23. John says:

    The match listing is solid! Can’t it be here faster?

  24. lee says:

    la parka on bluray – they have my money.

  25. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    Cool match listing. Thankfully, they left off alot of matches from 2000 and 2001. 100% pure trash during those two years.

    • Marty says:

      It wasn’t all terrible (stuff like Lance Storm’s Canadiana schtick, new cruiserweights popping up, Booker T hitting the next level were positives) but you’re right, those final two years were otherwise wretched.

      On another note, that set they had from the spring of ’99 (if memory serves) to the end was awful. They took a step back when they replaced the original Nitro set with it.

      • Vincenzzzzzo says:

        Agreed. I liked when they had the big WCW letters as the entrance, but when they changed to just having the big screen like RAW had, that was terrible. In all fairness, another positive you can add to your list, is the changing of alot of gimmicks for the wrestlers. Guys like Hugh Morris, Ernest Miller, etc. received pushes and brought somewhat a freshness to WCW at the time.

        • Anonymous says:

          Ernest Miller definitely benefited from becoming the Cat, but I don’t think becoming Hugh G. Rection did DeMott any favors.

          • james says:

            Yeah it did, Hugh Morrus was a guy who you would only see win on the weekend shows. Rection was on Nitro every week and got a decent push and was involved in tons of angles in the dying days. Just because the name was cheesy that doesn’t mean it “didn’t do him any favors”

      • KarlKayfabian says:

        Plus,, Stevie Ray’s color commentary is a guilty pleasure of mine.

    • james says:

      2001 wasn’t all bad. It wasn’t great but you can see they were getting better, unfortunately most viewers had already tuned out by that point so it was too little too late. If you look at 2001 compared to the horrific 2000, 2001 had simpler storylines and more of a focus on in ring action. The last couple of PPVs they did were actually decent in retrospect.

    • Dave says:

      2000 was **** minus few things that Marty mentioned and i also liked Mike Awesome’s career killer gimmick, then they turned him into a fat chick loving 70s guy. Terrible.

      But 2001 it really started to get better…Steiner was absolute gold as a heel and Nitro was getting entertaining. I thought Sin and Greed were one of their better ppvs…much better than the shit ppvs from 2000 like Halloween Havoc which was probably the worst WCW ppv since Great American Bash 91 or some of the 1995 ppvs. It was just bad.

      There was a magazine ad hyping a reboot of WCW in May 2001 with a ppv called “The Big Bang”…would have been interesting to see how WCW would have been if it survived.

  26. mommy says:

    great stuff, not many repeats and lots of promos/matches

    of course there not including everything, but for vol 2 this is near perfect, a few tweaks and it would be 5 stars imo

    maybe there listening to us, less repeats

  27. SRB says:

    This set really does seem to focus on cruiserweights as was said a while back, while still having your star-studded main events, so you get a good mix there. Obviously the Blu-Ray extras are a complete must have, so grabbing the Blu-Ray is not even a question. I may be alone here, but I’m the type who usually feels you can ditch the segments (for the most part, besides Austin and Rock stuff) and give me another match or two and I feel 100% this way here besides the Madusa segment. There’s 9 segments or so just on the first disc and very likely you could have gotten about 4 or 5 more matches there instead. Glad to see the set is mostly dominated by Savage. I had no idea he ever went at it with La Parka??? Wow… And a couple matches with Bam Bam? No complaints there. I think I prefer the first set better, but still feel this set gives us some gems we’ve been hoping for and hopefully a few new matches we never new existed. I personally didn’t realize the greatness of WCW until it was over as I was a WWE/WWF guy all my life. After WCW was over I became very interested and it’s sets like these that just make me want more.

  28. R&REXPRESS#1 says:

    Good, not great. Its good for diehard wcw fans like myself but I expected better…..prey for volume #3.

  29. Marty says:

    I love this set already. Lovin’ that we get the semi-famous Hogan-Arn match, Savage-La Parka, a good little bit of DDP (to me, he was always underrated), whole thing is a nice mixed bag. Also happy that 2000 and 2001 are kept to a minimum.

  30. Harry Faversham says:

    Its certainly not as good at the last one, but that’s to be expected. Its a bit naughty that they made the DVD so inferior to the blu ray when the first volume wasn’t issued on blu ray. There are some poor choices here and it is very thin compared to volume 1, but a few that make me want to get it straight away. Raven vs. Goldberg, Bret Hart vs. Piper, Savage vs. Hogan, DDP vs. Savage and of course Sting vs. Goldberg! We should probably be grateful they made a vol 2 at all. I loved the nWo set and I think a War Games set is on its way too. I hope that Goldebrg one comes out too.

    • SRB says:

      You took the word “naughty” right out of my own vocabulary. When I saw the blu-ray extras I thought, “this is very naughty.”

      • Harry Faversham says:

        Ha ha! Yes. It was also very naughty not making that Ravishing Rick Rude DVD we wanted. How rude.

        Having had a while to think about the match list I think this will be a good BLU RAY. I didn’t realise just how many matches were listed. I think its 36. I love the cover too. There’s always going to be something missing but it will be essential for my collection. I buy all the WCW themed DVDs. They are some of my favourites, But I’m mostly looking forward to the Dungeon Collection Blu Ray.

        Happy new year!

        • Anonymous says:

          A Rick Rude DVD wasn’t made because it sadly wouldn’t be profitable. None of the 80s heavy DVDs really sell that well apparently unless they’re Hogan, Savage, or Flair.

          • SRB says:

            At least we can all rejoice in the Mr. Perfect set. It was a start. And not just because I’m a Rude fan, but I think a few discs would fill nicely. A short documentary and some of his matches with Warrior, Jake Roberts, Piper, and of course his work in WCW with Sting and Flair. It was pretty hysterical when Mark made the fantasy concept and someone said the cover looked like gay porn.

            • Harry Faversham says:

              I thought he was great in ECW too. You also have WCCW footage and UWF I think. So he’d make excellent use of libraries.Even Memphis if they ever get that? Great promos in the nWo. People not buying enough 80s wrestling is very naughty.

              • Joey says:

                From what I understand the person who owns the Memphis footage wants too much for it.Not sure if that is 100% correct but either way it’s a shame because there is some great stuff there.

  31. captain planet says:

    Very few things I love more than 97/98 era WCW. Glad to see a lot of it represented here. Only upset for me is Raven and his Flock getting mostly shafted. Glad to see the US title match with Goldberg, though. I recall that being a big deal at the time since Goldberg was undefeated, and that meant he was either losing or winning a title. And Goldberg ever losing any title was so out of the question through the eyes of a kid. Fun times. But anyway, I’m looking forward to getting this.

  32. Anonymous says:

    The Blu-Ray extras are SO MUCH better than DVDs #2 and #3 that it almost looks like someone else made the selections in an effort to compensate for an otherwise very lackluster set.

  33. Mack says:

    Wow, the blu-ray will have a total of 38 matches. I’m buying this baby then!!!!!!!!

  34. Brad Attitude says:

    WHERE ON EARTH IS SID VICIOUS? nah, just kidding.

    Good to see La Parka vs. Macho Man made this set. Disappoined Sting & Luger vs. Hogan and Hart didn’t make it. Pretty good tag team match as well.

    Nonetheless, it looks like my pockets will be emptying out some cash for the blu-ray set 😛

    Sounds like a good set. 🙂

    DVDs 2 and 3 are very underwhelming. The Blu-Ray extras are awesome though!

  38. Anonymous says:

    For all the Hogan matches that they included in this set, I can’t for the life of me figure out how this missed including the February 2000 match against Flair in New York . They wrestled a brilliant match in front of a very hot crowd that was built up on the basis of heat supposedly stemming from a WCW magazine story that had listed them as number one and number two all-time. Another one they should have put on this set was an October tag match featuring Flair and Hogan against DDP, Luger and Sting. Off the top of my head, I can’t think of another time they tagged. All they needed to do is pull out the June 1998 tag match and a couple of Hogan promos and the set would have seemed so much more balanced and entertaining. Missed opportunities.

    Love all the rare Hogan matches on this set. People can complain all they want but Hogan was the #1 figure for WCW during the Monday Nitro Era

    This set needed a whole lot more Flair and a lot less Hogan. Somehow I get the feeling that DDP had a lot of input in coming up with this set.

  43. KarlKayfabian says:

    I only see one repeat, Booker vs Steiner from the last Nitro.

    God….Hogan is on here 9 times! Only twice for Bret…hopefully he requested some Nitro matches for his set because that would be good. Bret vs Luger in August 98 for the US Title is a good one.

    I really hope that the reason a lot of good stuff was left off and some questionable stuff left on is that they are going to do many more volumes, and that the reason is NOT that they are trying to bury this because its WCW. In other words, lets hope the politics are kept to a minimum.

    I got some stuff I wanted but I’m kind of disappointed. At times this is an utterly bizarre match listing. For instance, why is Jeff Jarrett on there so much? The blu-ray exclusives are better than everything else too. Hardly any Bret Hart…maybe he requested a bunch of Nitro matches. Also, they appeared to go to far in having no repeats when some matches that were really important have been on past DVDs. Some of the matches are on there just because of politics-Booker vs Jarrett and Jericho vs DDP for instance. Oh well maybe they are holding out for Volume 3.

    Some stuff that is sorely missing after two volumes:
    Ric Flair vs Arn Anderson cage match 1995
    Hogan vs Luger June 1997 (Luger won by submission in a non-title match. This was overshadowed by the Luger title win two months later but was HUGE at the time since Hogan was unbeatable and rarely lost by clean submission.)
    Goldberg vs Hall July 1998 (Goldberg had to win this match to get the title shot at Hogan. Otherwise, the match in the Georgia Dome would have been non-title.)
    Giant vs Flair title change 1996(repeat)
    Savage vs Flair title change 1996(repeat)
    Hogan vs Bret first meeting 1998(repeat)
    Debut of the “Impact Players” (Hennig and Raven)
    Rick Rude on Nitro and Raw in the same night
    Steiners winning and losing tag titles in 1997 and 1998
    DDP/Raven angle
    Ultimate Warrior debut

    So there is PLENTY more to come…infact, I only got a few matches from my list. Sorry for rambling but this is something I really care about.

      Actually I got 16 things I wanted so thats not bad still have about one hundred on my list

    • StretchHartMark says:

      Goldberg v Hall is actually on the ‘Legends of Wrestling; Heatseekers’ DVD… but with fake nWo music, as i recall.

      Hennig and Raven were the Impact Players? When was that? The only Impact Players I’ve ever heard of were Credible and Storm in ECW.

        In 1997 WCW kept promising two “Impact Players” would debut soon. On the June 30th 1997 edition of Nitro, Raven hopped over the railing and Hennig walked out at the end of a main event, but Nitro went off the air before they could do anything. That was the reveal of the two Impact Players as well as the debut of both individuals.

      I think this is great! They finally are listening and not putting a million repeats! Why would we ever want or need repeats on sets like this is beyond me!

  47. Jesus Lopez says:

    It looks solid. It’s important to remember that not all of the “best” will be included so that there will be a volume 3. I hope they don’t milk Nitro the way they did the Raw. So many Raw releases with repeat footage that it’s safe to say that Raw is Cooked.

  48. Dave says:

    Looks good…Blu-ray exclusives look great. The cage match with DDP/Savage was Savage’s last match for over 1 year, then he came back jacked with a new look and Team Madness. Glad this made it.

    Was hoping for some rare 99/00 footage, but honestly WCW 2000 was just brutal and absolutely terrible. They had some good things like the mega push with Lance Storm and giving Booker T the World Championship.

  49. Joe T. says:

    no love for Curt Hennig? well atleast there is a decent amount of Savage

  50. KarlKayfabian says:

    I like that they left off just enough good stuff to justify a third volume, which is fine by me!

      There’s probably more than enough quality material from the 1999-2000 period alone to make another two sets!

    Very disappointing.

    How on earth can there be only one match from the year 2000 when the first half of that year was filled with big-name main event matches?

    On this entire set, there’s only 1 match that I really wanted to be finally officially released and it’s a Blu-Ray exclusive. With all of the Hogan, Nash and Savage matches on here, you’d think this was a set created by an incredibly biased fan of the WWF Hulkamania and New Generation eras. WCW was so much more than WWF rejects.

    I’m buying it and I know that it’s going to be the best release of the next three months, but I hope this isn’t an indication of what we have to expect.

      WCW may have been, but Nitro was pretty full of WWF guys everywhere, including giant chunks of the show being devoted to Hogan.

      • Anonymous says:

        There is not enough focus on the midcard here. Main eventers with a sprinkling of cruiserweights is great, but where is Alex Wright, Disco Inferno, Ravens Flock, Glacier, Bagwell, etc? Those guys were important too.

        • StaggerLeeLover says:

          they actually weren’t all that important, hence them only making appearances on this DVD set in other people’s matches.

          nWo 4 life… and beyond.

          Glacier, Bagwell, and Disco have little to no place on a Best of anything. The fact that Bagwell got on the first volume is a surprise in itself.

          • Anonymous says:

            Bagwell was pretty funny and Disco was a solid midcarder. I’m kinda surprised to see no Kidman or Regal since they work for WWE and WWE likes to reward those guys. Kidman was kinda overexposed in the last one but Regal would be a nice choice since he’s so different from the people on this set. Also would have liked to see Rick Martel who briefly returned in 1998. No Ravens Flock is a big disappointment also.

      Definitely picking this up. There’s a lot of things in that listing I’m happy to see released finally.

  53. Mongoose Wizard says:

    Good match listing! Can’t wait to pick this up on Blu Ray! Can’t wait to see what 2013 has in store for the fans!

  54. charlie f says:

    Looks great! Cant wait to get the blu ray!!

  55. CJ says:

    It’s complete B.S. that there isn’t at least one Ray Traylor match on this 3-Disc release!!!! There’s so many great matches of his on Nitro that could’ve been included like Big Bubba Rogers vs Road Warrior Hawk, Big Bubba vs Eddie Guerrero, Big Bubba vs Rick Steiner, Ray Traylor vs Randy Savage, Ray Traylor vs Curt Hennig, etc.!

  56. The Mysterio, Guerrera & Garza vs. Psicosis, Silver King & La Parka is a great match if I remember. Quite a few matches on here I’ve seen on vintage collection. all of which i remember were pretty damn good, looking forward to this!

  57. Big Cal says:

    I often wonder if WWE actually knows the meaning of “Best of”.

  58. AJ says:

    Solid listing and some nice Blu-Ray exclusives
