Yea just watched disc 1 of the bluray and that match with triple h from raw is listed on the inside cover but not on the bluray either
sorry meant to say Rock vs Triple H on Raw 1998 was advertised on dvd case but not actually on dvd.
I have got this set and enjoyed the documentary and match selection because they were matches I didn’t have tho I do know that lots are repeats. The 2nd match listed on the inside of dvd cover of package does indeed say Rock vs Triple H 1998 but when I put in the disc, it is not actually on the dvd. Even though it says 11 matches on cover, my dvd set only had 10.
Apparently on the 2nd disc, the 2nd match on there is a match against Triple H on RAW. Not sure why it’s not listed here.
there is repeats on here the triple threat matches at summerslam 2000 its already on the history of the wwe championship. the no holds barred matches from backlash 1999 its already on the leagcey of stone cold steve austion. the ladder matches from summerslam 1998 its already on the first ladder match.
Does anybody know if this dvd of the rock is rare
WWE – The Rock – Just Bring It! (Collector’s Edition) (2002) 2 disc set I have it brand new thanks I seen it on amazon for $167.81 brand new which is what I have please let me know
Silvervision confirmed the documentary is about 2 hours long.
The only reason they can still fit footage on after putting 3 DVDs worth of stuff on them is because the DVDs aren’t full. they are given less than half of what they can hold. I never denied that a blu ray disk can hold more. All I’m saying is DVDs that are also released on blu ray(not the ones that are DVD exclusive, they are still about 9 hours)are significantly shorter than they would usually be in order to allow the blu rays to fit the content onto two disks and have room for the bonus features that they want to have on blu ray.
The extra blu ray features that they give to blu rays could also fit on the DVDs if they wanted to put them on there since there is plenty of room.
The runtime of the Blu ray 2 disk sets that WWE are putting out, including the blu ray exclusive footage is about the same length as DVDs use to be before they started to bring out blu rays at the same time. These 2 disk sets average around 8.5 hours, DVD 3 disk sets used to be over 9 hours.
Jesse- Sounds like you didn’t get very good help from that geek squad rep! 😉 You probably need to update your “firmware” on the blu-ray player. Make sure it’s connected to the internet and periodically check for the latest firmware updates. Unlike DVD players, blu-ray players are able to be updated, ensuring you go longer without having to upgrade.
Also, the bars on the screen are because WWE content pre-HD was framed in 4:3 aspect ratio. You’re going to get those bars whether you’re watching a DVD or a blu. Widescreen footage just doesn’t exist for stuff shot on video tape. If it really bugs you, use the zoom feature on your blu player or TV. You’ll lose some content at the top & bottom of the screen, but the side bars will be gone.
Only problem I seem to have with blu ray is they still haven’t worked out all the kinks. Sometimes I have to eject a disc and immediately hit ok on my remote for it to read it. Once it reads it, it’s great. i thought there was a problem with the player but the geek squad rep at Best Buy said it’s a kink not quite worked out yet. And I also don’t like the bars on the side for anything pre-2008 before HD. Looks like the screen is cut off even though it isn’t. Other than those 2 things I love the blurays and they are getting cheaper
straightedge47- again, not sure where you’re getting your info from. Do you have a link to an article with a WWE rep saying that DVDs have been shortened to accommodate blus? because if so, that guy’s wrong. From the blu-ray.com FAQS:
“How much video can you fit on a Blu-ray disc?
Over 9 hours of high-definition (HD) video on a 50GB disc.
About 23 hours of standard-definition (SD) video on a 50GB disc.”
They put bonus features on the blu releases because EVEN AFTER throwing on all 3 discs of DVDs, there’s STILL room left over. That’s a fact.
I know that one blu ray disk can hold more than one DVD. But the DVDs are being shortened so that they can fit it all onto just 2 Blu Ray disks along with the blu ray extras. Blu Rays do hold more, but they are also the reason for DVDs getting nearly a third less footage than they use to.
straightedge47- not sure where you’re getting that. If DVDs are holding less than they used to, it has absolutely nothing to do with the blu-rays. Blu-rays can hold MORE data than DVDs, not less. That’s one of their main selling points. A dual-layer blu holds 50GB, a dual-layer DVD only holds 8.5GB. Ever bought a season set of a TV show? The blu version of that set probably has fewer discs, because a blu-ray can fit more episodes per disc than a DVD (even accounting for the much larger size of an HD file).
I totally agree. I was buying all DVD’s until the Steve Austin and Rivalries sets came out. Then I HAD to make the switch and buy a blu-ray player. I’m glad I did. I couldn’t buy the Rivalry set on DVD without the most important match of the feud (survivor series 97). I just couldn’t.
No the content has been changed, before blu rays 3 disk sets would hold 9+ hours of footage. Now because of the Blu rays DVDs are lucky if they get 7 hours.
straightedge47- that’s flat out untrue. DVDs have NOT been shortened to accommodate blu releases. The DVD releases are usually 3 discs to 2 for blus. They just change the disc count, not the content. In fact, those 2 blus hold waaaaaay more than the 3 DVDs (thus the bonus content on blus).
jason- just take the plunge and go blu. You can get a new player for around $100 on sale. Just do it. And the higher price for blus is mostly a myth. It’s certainly not $5-10 per title. Order from Amazon and it’s usually $1-$3.50 more tops.
Honestly guys, just GO BLU. It’s BETTER. End of discussion. It’s a fact. Admitting that doesn’t mean some stranger is going to come into your house and destroy all your old WWE DVDs. They’ll even still play in a blu-ray player!
Holding more isn’t an advantage here though since they don’t fill them. The DVDs have had to be shortened because of the blu rays to make them both fit. The DVDs used to have up to 3 and a half hours on them. Now it’s barely 2 just so they can fit the same content onto the blu rays. The 3 disk DVD set could easily fit all the extra features they put onto the blu rays, but they dont because they want to make them exclusive to blu ray.
blu rays can hold more but since WWE don’t fill everything up to their maximum that’s irrelevant.
5-10 EXTRA bucks I ment
Ok I haven’t bought a blu ray player cause I don’t wanna fork over the money I have a dvd player..ya and they only release 3 discs to blu ray and I’m fine with dvds right now they’re cheaper anyway.. And I will buy one soon prolly but right this second its not entirely necessary…plan to spend 5-10 bucks for every video u buy too….booooo
Whether you like it or not blu ray is the best thing right now. Didn’t everyone have to buy a dvd player at some stage.
Im just saying there will be a time where dvds wont be made anymore. Blu ray can hold more and fans want more content. Just read the posts here.
@nick that’s literally one of the worst ideas I’ve ever heard. a lot of people aren’t going to buy blu ray players because they can’t get wwe dvds. ridiculous
Decent line up glad they put the flair match e and c match and the triple threat cage oh and the mankind rumble match. Could of been 3 or 4 more matches though. I think this is acceptable but the repeats are a bit of a bummer…..but this looks good enough.
Im from Australia Stacey and there isn’t many blu ray in stores here so I just order online from ezydvd.
@nick and what about the countries where blu-rays aren’t easy to find.I have only seen one blu-ray in New Zealand which was Hell in a Cell 2010.If there were more available I would get a blu-ray player but there isn’t
WWE should get rid of DVD and make 3 disc blu rays from now on. That is how you make people buy blu ray.
It seems since WWE were making blu rays the 2nd disc of 3 disc sets of DVDs has not been used to its full capacity so that it fits on the 1st blu ray disc. The 2nd disc contains only about 5-6 matches when before blu ray it had 8-10 matches. Time to move to the future and get rid of DVD.
As for the listings, this is why I dont buy anthology sets. I rather buy a documentary and matches set than own every bloody PPV. I didnt buy his last set but now I might since there is no repeats. Just hope the doco is worth watching.
Here’s a list of blu ray repeats
WM 10 Ladder Match HBK/Razor
WM 14 HBK/Stone Cold
ER 11 Ladder Match ADR/Christian
KOTR Street Fight Angle/Shane
KOTR HIAC Taker/Mankind
KOTR Kiss My Foot Hart/King
That’s not to bad for how many releases there are
Rare matches would be so much more special then re-releasing the same old stuff. It’s one thing to repeat a match once but when it shows up on 5 sets it’s a bit much. between that and them not putting PPV’s on Blu Ray I don’t know what is worse.
@Vincenzzzzo: it doesnt take a genius to know a bad movie from watching one than having to be apart of one.
After looking through here nothing is on blu ray same with Steve Austin only had one repeat
WWE just wants big matches out on blu ray for 5 years from now
What y’all need to understand about repeats is that most of these matches are on blu ray and that’s what wwe is looking at for repeats not repeats off DVD or VHS 5 years from now DVDs will be like VHS and no one will care if a match is already on that format
“Crappy WWE movie this… crappy WWE movie that”. How many of YOU have actually starred in a movie? how many of YOU ever made a movie?
Besides sitting behind your computer eating Doritos with your mis-shapen heads, have any of YOU ever took a chance on a big gamble at all in life? Probably not. I have the same feelings for those who crap all over the XFL. A great idea that for some reasons, didn’t go over well to the masses. Oh well. At least it was a chance that was taken by an entrepreneuer(sp) who wanted to make something of his life.
I wasn’t trying to say The Rock wasn’t a great worker at all, because he is. Cena is a great worker as well. I am not denying that with either of them. They both are great workers and they wouldn’t be where they are at if they weren’t. I just stated they both don’t have that diverse of a moveset. If you’ve seen a handful of Rock or Cena matches, you’ve damn near seen them all. I’m not trying to rag on either of the guys because they are both great. I am just saying they are the same kind of wrestler. I’m not saying that’s a bad wrestler.
I’m not trying to say The Rock used music ALL the time in his promos like Cena. But The Rock used music in more instances than his 2 Rock concerts. I remember him singing “Smackdown Hotel” on at least one occasion, and I believe I remember him attempting to rap with Busta Rhymes. They weren’t exactly concerts but music nontheless.
The Rock did have a custom brahma belt made back in the Attitude Era, but it never made television. It got lost in shipment to the WWE. I just kind of figured that all of the marks knew that story.
Not all of Cena’a appearances have been for WWE Studios. Most of his crappy movies have been WWE, but not all. He’s been in a ton of non-WWE commercials, is on ESPN quite frequently, and gets invited to award shows all the time. He’s broken into Hollywood.
People are still complaining about repeats?!?! like jgreeds and anonymous said, WWE are not only appealing smarks that collect every single DVD with the WWE logo on it but rather the mass amount of fans that don’t buy every release.
Smarks don’t like it, don’t buy it…I’m sure this will still sell well.
There will always be repeats from previous DVDs, no stopping it…this one is actually a nice complement to the 2008 release.
Steve wrote: “t would be great if they realized that most of us own all he DVD’s and don’t pick and choose which ones we buy”
Have to disagree. I’m enough of a hardcore fan to post on this site and AT MOST I buy 20% of the DVD/Blu product they release. I think there are a lot more people out there that are like me than are like you. I have a ton of other interests beyond pro wrestling, and I can’t imagine devoting that much of my income (or shelf space!) to wrestling product. I’d rather wait for a compilation that’s ALL matches I want (like this one), than buy a themed collection that only has maybe 1 or 2 matches I want.
jgreeds- Not sure I agree w/ your assessment of Rock or Cena. Even Jericho wrote that, at the time he left, Rock was one of the best in the world in the ring. He’s insanely underrated as a worker. I think people just watch his ’98 stuff and forget about the quantum leap his ring skills took in mid-2000 to 2002. Not to single you out, but I’ve become a little baffled as to why the modern wrestling fan somehow believes a diverse move set = great worker. I always thought good matches were about storytelling. Truly great workers like Rock don’t need to do Shooting Star Presses to have a 4-star match.
Also, to the best of my knowledge, Rock never had a custom belt. Are you thinking of the Smoking Skull belt he stole from Austin in ’99? That was Stone Cold’s, not Rock’s. Also, music was never a big part of Rock’s promos. He only did the “Rock Concert” gimmick TWICE, and the 1st one didn’t happen until 2003. Finally, Cena never broke into Hollywood. Doing WWE Studios crap for Vince on your off days is not “breaking into Hollywood.” 😉
I agree withh Anonymous about everyone complaining about match listings. Just because all of us wrestling nerds have shelves of DVDs with all these matches doesn’t mean that your average “WWE Universe” member does. He is correct in stating the WWE is trying to appeal to the masses. It’s smart marketing, not smark marketing.
Also, I have to agree with Mabel saying The Rock is more overrated than Benoit. Don’t get me wrong: I have always been a HUGE fan of The Rock. I know I may cause a stir saying this, but I’ve been saying for a while that The Rock and John Cena are damn near the same kind of wrestler. Both are all mic skills and limited wrestling skills. Both of their move sets are about 10 moves deep. Both had custom championship belts. Both implemented music into their promos (the Rock concerts and Cena’s rapping). Both made the transition to Hollywood. People chant “Cena sucks” and used to chant “Rocky sucks”. Cena’s punch-punch-you can’t see me punch combo is the same thing as Rock’s punch-punch-spit in hand punch combo. The Five Knuckle Shuffle and The People’s Elbow are the same thing.
I really hated typing that since I do love The Rock and don’t like Cena at all.
I love how we all complain on here about how terrible WWE does with match listings cause “ALL OF US” already own these matches. How many people are there on this site that comment that they already own every WWE DVD and match released? 100+? 1,000 tops?!
So lets be generous and say 2,000 of us already own most of these matches, therefore this DVD fails in terms of extras.
Why would WWE cater to only these 2,000 people when they are selling over 90,000 copies of most of these big documentaries?
They have to appeal to the masses, not just a select few wrestling marks who want to collect every match and make their own tape library.
@chrono: despite what you may think, benoit vs the rock at fully loaded was one of the best technical matches the rock has ever been involved in and is a very underrated match & a lost gem.
and you say benoit is overrated. really? really? sounds like your just talking out of anger due to what benoit did to his legacy. the rock is more overrated than the rabid wolverine.
The Rumble Mankind match is a classic but real fans own the Rumble anthology and have it on there. When I say they put matches with guys who are in good standing I’m not talking about Triple H obviously but let’s think about this for a second. Best of Nitro DVD that has multiple Billy Kidman matches; hmmm maybe because he is a trainer in developmental. Or now all of a sudden Booker T matches show up on dvd’s. I bet they wouldn’t have if he was still in TNA. And keep re-releasing the Summerslam match with Triple at Summerslam 1998 and the Backlash match from ’99. t would be great if they realized that most of us own all he DVD’s and don’t pick and choose which ones we buy.
Terrrrrrrible listing. These dummies who pick out the matches should be fired!!!!!!! Also I bet the doc is LOADED with revisionist history! This DVD has nothing on Rise and fall of ECW!!!!
Craven o’ Connor
You need to stop living in a box. The Attitude Era ended about 10-11yrs ago and you’re STILL talking about it. I don’t need wrestlers swearing in a promo to enjoy the product, thanks.
@Steve, so are you saying Triple H isn’t on good terms with the WWE?…
this is a cool dvd set. i just wish they would have replaced the brock lesnar match with the rock vs brock lesnar vs triple h match from global warning 2002. all in all an awesome dvd worth buying.
@Mabel Really? You’re not going to buy it now because you thought that MAYBE, after five years, they were going to include a Benoit match? The dude was overrated anyway, get over it.
Yeah if you get the other Rock DVD set from 2008 and get this one, you will have a pretty damn sweet collection of The Rock tbh.
This one may feel like its lacking on extra content but damn, the other one pretty much grabbed all his bouts. They have matches and a ton of promos.
The documentary is what sets this one apart from the other one as well as a few extras that were not on the previous set. For what its worth, I think its fine.
10 matches for a 3 disc release is pretty ridiculous. The only doc features I will buy are ones like the Bret vs Shawn one something along those lines. I’ve read the books and there isn’t any information in any of these wwe doc’s that the guys don’t talk about and in way more detail in their books. I’m strictly ppv’s and dvd’s with mostly non ppv matches on them like the unreleased hogan matches dvd. Would love to see more of those.
first the king of the ring, now this crap put the fans in charge of the matches that should be on dvds
yep steve, also agree. WWE is a money-grubing company. they don’t care about what true fans want. they care about profit, profit, profit… otherwise guys like zack ryder wouldn’t been in the main event of a show, that hit ratings of 6+ back in the attitude era. it’s all about merchandise…
The Rock Concert II. I hope they don’t try to edit out Goldberg’s car not starting, great laugh.
Steve- totally agree about that Iron Man match. Pretty egregious to exclude it. They better have a definite plan to put it on another release. However…. “dumb Mankind Rumble Match” ?!?! That match is a classic!
Way to screw up another match listing WWE. Why can’t they put Rock vs. Triple H Iron Match instead of the dumb Mankind Rumble Match and the match with Stone cold from Backlash which is on Stone Cold’s old dvd. WWE always puts matches against guys who are either in good standing or are current stars. Ridiculous
I agree w/ u. I only buy Blu-Rays now which cost me like £5.00 more though the extra blu-ray content on this set SUCK$! They could have added his last match frm the Survivor Series: Deadly Game unless its in the doc.
I have a region-free dvd player for UK tagged classics so the lack of the iron man isnt a big deal to me but why arent they filling these discs anymore nowadays? Is that doc on disc 1 3 hours? Doubt it they could’ve had plenty of extras on there.The Bret dvd had a doc,extras and couple matches all on the 1st disc! Only 5 matches on disc 2? The bluray seems really disappointing over the lack of extras. Surprised his promo with Austin from Raw 2001 before Survivor Series when they talked trash and then sang never made it to either of their sets. Hopefully the Edge is better content-wise.
They’re clearly releasing this now so that those who want the Rock/Cena match will have to buy the WrestleMania disc.
captain planet- I disagree. I don’t think Rock vs Cena at Mania will be his last match. Not by a long shot. Heck, I don’t even think it will be the last Rock v Cena match! I guess we’ll find out in a few months who is right though.
It’s so stupid that they can’t wait a friggin’ extra few months to release this as a complete career bio. I mean yeah it’s fairly close, but this Rock/Cena match is likely going to be the cap on his career. Urgh…
anonymous- they probably made the Rock/Cena v Awesome Truth match blu exclusive because it’s literally the ONLY match Rock has wrestled in the HD era. WWE didn’t go HD until January of 2008. Makes sense to make the 1 HD match exclusive to the HD format.
nightmare- it’s blu-ray, not blue-ray. No “e.” 😉
And there are more extras on the blu-rays simply because it’s a better format and can hold way more data. A dual-layer blu can hold up to 50GB. A dual-layer DVD can only hold 8.5GB.
I hope the Edge dvd is going to be better that’s the one I will buy for sure but this one I will want until someone has it used or just don’t want to keep it.
I have the Rock Just Bring it 2 disc with all the promos brand new never opened so I am not sure on that .
Why can’t they have matches that are not on the other dvds and why is all the extras on blue ray again .I have a blue ray player but I still like to know .
Doc looks good, wish there were more matches and more promos tho just like the austin DVD.
Why is Rock/Cena vs Awesome Truth Blu Ray Exclusive
should have had his matches vs stone cold in the steel cage and rebellion 2001. and his match vs chris jericho from smackdown april 2002,but still an awesome set.can’t wait to pick this baby up.
i’ll just get the first disc copied, forget about the matches and extras.
Finally WWE put the Triple Threat Cage match, I thought that match had been long forgotten.. Why does WWe put Backlash 99 on every dvd.. The match from November 1998 with Austin and Rock was really good.. and Rocky Maivia vs Bret Hart would’ve been cool too
ok since there’s no rocky vs. chris benoit from fully loaded 2000, then i’m not getting this. the match listing is terrible and filled with repeats. The Most Electrifying Man dvd had more matches and promos than this cash cow.
I’ll likely pick it up even though I own every match on the set outside that tag match from 2000.
I was sold simply on the I Quit match finally making a compilation set. The Blu-ray exclusive leave a lot to be desired though, especially after they put the Montreal match on the Bret/Shawn set, and a plethora of career-spanning matches and moments on Austin’s.
The DOC is fine, I THANK THE WWE A MILLION TIMES :)4 FINALLY ADDING THE MATCH I’VE ALWAYS WANTED ON BLU-RAY! – NO HOLDS BARRED MATCH FOR THE WWE CHAMPIONSHIP AT BACKLASH 1999 VS STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN! Other matches are also great, although only 10/11 matches! The Blu-Ray Exclusive content looks BORING apart from maybe just the TAG-MATCH w/Cena n the PEOPLE’S ELBOW. Though The Rock, Stone Cold & Triple H look as if though they are in the same kind of league, all making their way to the TOP way back from the ‘ATTITUDE ERA’ therefore, I would have expected more matches for this set like Austin’s set. Though I don’t think it was important adding the Ric Flair match 🙁 n if there was some kind of a possible change LIKE AUSTIN’S SET MADE TO A 3DISC BLU-RAY, 4DISC DVD, THEN I’D LIKE TO SEE LOTS OF ATTITUDE ERA MATCHES BETWEEN THE ROCK’S NATION OF DOMINATION AND D-X, ETC!!!!
what a waste.. i own 80% of those stuff on dvd…not worth buying
Vincenzzzzzo- get the version on the Foley Hard Knocks DVD. The “Top 50 Superstars” version has a slightly longer run-time (extra stuff in the beginning), but the Foley Hard Knocks version is unblurred and can be had cheap.
I will agree with the people that thought/hoped there would be more matches though. For example, I had been clamoring for the Smackdown match that served as the unofficial end to the Rock/Jericho feud, and it looks as though there would have been room. I’m happy with everything they did include though.
I have that DVD set and I never even realized that match was on there. Thanks for the info.
indyfan- lot of repeat promos btwn D2 of Just Bring It & the Electrifying 3-disc. Just Bring It is all unblurred though (they changed the logo in the corner, but didn’t blur out anything), but that’s not really a big deal with promos IMO.
Just Bring It has a promo where Rock rips on Benoit by blacking out one of Kevin Kelly’s teeth. Funny, but didn’t make it to Electrifying for obvious reasons. Also, promo w/ Y2J where they rip off each other’s catch phrases didn’t make it to the newer disc either. Also, some stuff from June & July of ’02.
Everything else is pretty much duplicated on Electrifying.
I’m happy with what they gave us but still can’t shake the feeling of ‘that’s it?’. Ten matches is extremely light, especially when you consider several of those are double dips. I’m looking forward to the documentary but couldn’t they have found three or four more rare matches to fill it out?
m.blier- his Raw match w/ Jericho when he won back WCW title is a special feature on Rebellion 2001 DVD. Raw match w/ RVD is an easter egg on first disc of “Just Bring It” No luck on the others you mentioned though.
I’m happy with this release. They pretty much included everything I thought they HAD to include (except the Iron Man match), plus a few surprises like the cage match and the tag match w/ Taker v E&C. Very excited his match w/ Flair is finally going to be on DVD/Blu!
glad they put the Rock’s cage match with Foley and Shamrock on this set.Always liked that cage match
Does anyone have the Rock Just Bring it 2 disc with all the promos? Are the promos much different than Rocks last 3 dics set?
Good match listings, but seems short.
shouldn’t be that bad of a dvd. The documentary i am more interest in. Also the match listing is pretty interest putting matches Rock that’s hasn’t been include yet beside some repeats. Also someone mention not adding the the Rock vs Triple H match from Backlash 2000 it’s already on it on The Rock last DVD in 2008. Yeah i would have love to see also his match with Triple H in the iron man match from Judgment day 2000. Maybe they will add them in Triple H dvd when that comes out eventually. Other matches they should have consider like, The Rock vs Rikishi Survivor Series 2000, The Rock, Stone Cold steve austin vs Kurt Angle and Chris jericho the smackdown in early december 2001 before venegence on the same night where Rock made Vince kiss ass on Rikishi. Also including extras they should have include want just mention now with Rock making Vince kiss Rikishi Ass. Also The First Rock concert on raw, as well all of his surprise returns by help mick foley against evolution, Eugene segment and his last appearance in 2004 with the diva contest. But overall looking forward to the dvd.
the 2001 raw match vs c.jericho regains wcw world title ,2001 raw match vs rvd, 2000 no way out vs big show ,2002 smackdown vs kevin nash ,would have been great.the iron man match with hhh was again put aside.the good news no billy gunn matche.
his halftime heat match vs mankind can also be found on the top 50 superstars of all time dvd set.
WOW great match listing!!!! I can’t wait!!!
@Dave Maybe another reason why the vs. Triple @ Backlash 2000 is left off from the DVD is because he loses the match.
Extra’s are lacking tbh. Where are all the promo’s/interviews? Steve Austin Blu-ray is much better in terms of extras compared to The Rock’s, and that shouldn’t be the case. Oh well, can’t wait for this still.
The Halftime Heat match was on the Mick Foley Hard Knocks, Cheap Pops DVD and is fairly cheap.
Agreed with Harry. Very good set overall. But yeah, the Blu ray exclusives are disappointing. Only real attractive part of it is the Survivor Series tag with Cena. I imagine the WM challenge and birthday parts will be heavily covered in the doc (which I’m looking forward to) anyway. I too like the inclusion of the three-way cage, as well as the forgotten Hogan and Flair matches, the tag with Taker against E&C, and the heel 2003 segments. Those ones I’m certain haven’t shown up on previous releases.
most of the Rocks promos were already released on his previous DVD release, “Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment” a few years ago.
But where is the extras/promos?
Cool… match listing looks good. I’m glad they put the Survivor Series 2011 tag match as a blu-ray extra.
Did the Empty Arena match with Mick Foley from Halftime Heat ever make any DVD release? That wouold have been another great blu-ray extra…
Too bad they didn’t include many of the Rock’s promos from 1999-2003, some of them were absolute gold. But i guess people can just pick up Just Bring It! since it has like 20-25 them, especially the 2 Disc version.
Match listing seems short, but him being away from wrestling for 7 years makes sense and on/off from 2001/2002. Would have been great to include some rare RAW/SD gems from 1999-2000.
Still don’t get why they don’t include the Rock/HHH iron man, unless they are saving that the HHH DVD. That’s probably one of their only matches missing from DVD sets and Over the Edge 99 for obvious reasons.
Hopefully the documentary will be good and decent length.
TOO BAD THEY LEFT OFF HIS NO WAY OUT 2002 MATCH VS UNDERTAKER AND HIS MATCH VS GOLDBERG,BUT IT DOESN’T MATTER BECAUSE THIS IS A AWESOME DVD SET. CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS ONE.
I don’t like the rock but I think I’ll have to get it for the 3 way cage match, I think that’s the best wwe cage match always wondered how it kept missing so many sets it could have been on like the cage match sets
The doc should be great. Match wise I think The Rock vs. Mankind vs. Ken Shamrock was a match that I’ve always had a soft spot for. That was when The Rock had just turned face and the fans suddenly fell in love with him as a good guy. He was so popular that it seemed really stupid that he turned heel at Survivor Series. But Rock was so good at being a bad guy I doubt he actually lost any fans. The match list overall looks ok, but I would have liked to have seen it loaded up a bit more to put it on the same level as Austin’s DVD and especially blu ray. Blu ray exclusives are disappointing in comparison to the Austin one.
Some repeats but also some pretty nice unreleased stuff
I love this, I love this, I can’t wait to get it!
I don’t know if the doc alone is enough for me to grab this initially. The match listing is more repeats, although I think this is the first collection DVD to have the RR I Quit Match w/ Mankind. Will we ever see the Iron Man Match with HHH from 2000 released ? Maybe on the HHH DVD when that finally comes out.
looks good. really happy they’re putting the survivor series match on the bluray.
Not hating the match selection, though a lot more possibly could have been added.
If anyone wants more Rock matches get the last Rock DVD then. They did a good job trying not to add matches previously released.
No Where near as good as the Austin Blu-ray 3 disc set but is a good set none the less, i like couple of the matches on here and havent seen before like the rock vs ric flair, The Rock and Undertaker vs Christian and Edge, the rock vs mankind and ken shamrock cage match and im so glad they included the i quit match at rumble 1999 worth getting on blu-ray for sure, documentary should be really good and it will be great to hear from the great one him self.
I have already giving the blu-ray a 8/10 and the dvd 7/10.
I have been waiting forever for that “I quit” match at the Rumble. I didn’t think they’d rerelease a match with that many chair shots. Thank you, WWE!
I personally will be buying this only for the documentary since I really CANT buy it for any other reason. I have pretty much everything else on this set besides 1 or 2 things that I really could live without. This is a repeats dream to say the least. The “extras” are not that great and I feel like that for a man who has held the title multiple times and who was in WWE for like 7 or 8 years that there could have been much more. Pretty bad from my view. Besides the 2 Raw matches on disc 3 there’s nothing great about this set.
“You people have nothing better to do than to complain. Get a life! Or go ask WWE if theyre hiring and maybe you can come up with the match listing!”
Lack of a lot lost-gem matches really makes this kinda suck.
I mean yeah The Rock & Undertaker vs. Edge & Christian, The Rock vs. Ric Flair, and The Rock vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin at Backlash are some but I just thought we would be getting more. Hell, they should have added his Royal Rumble win.
