  1. Isrs4life says:

    I already have watched 2 disks of this set on the release day of it and I must say
    this set is very fun may have some repeats but it has a good flow looking forward into
    watching disk 3 tommorow night.

    I could see a volume 2 coming another year from now sure a great set worthy of keeping.

    If you dont own anything of wcw right now this be a perfect first dvd to buy!
    i recommend it already and it’s only been out for a day.

  2. isrs4life says:

    I maybe buying this set but they skipped 1999 so theres got to be a volume 2 one
    for next year I hope I will be getting best of the great american bash when they comes out
    but this will do I will sure have a few nice nights of watching this dvd set and getting a nice
    rewatch of some of the best wcw ppv matches that I have not seen in a while

  3. Ben says:

    How is the Steiners vs Sting/Lex Luger tag team match from SuperBrawl I not on here? That is like one of the top 10 matches of all time.

  4. Mike Poulin says:

    I would like to see a Best of Halloween Havoc set down the line featuring matches like Flair/Sting vs Funk/Muta, Chamber of Horrors, Chono vs Rude, Austin vs Dustin Rhodes from 1993, Syxx vs Jericho, Henning vs Flair, Savage vs Page 3 from 97, Chris Jericho vs Raven, Goldberg vs Sid and DDP vs Flair from 1999.

    • anonymous says:

      Me too. I like all of your picks. Throw in Doom vs. Horsemen, Austin vs. Rhodes from 91, Rude’s surprise debut against Zenk, Rude vs. Flair, Dustin Rhodes vs. Arn Anderson, Sting/Flair vs. Anderson/Pillman, Luger vs. Anderson, and Jarrett vs. Sting.

  5. Bill Hill says:

    This listings sucks not enough nWo stuff for me so I past on this. WWE dropped the ball here.

    • Anonymous says:

      I’ll agree with you on one thing, WWE dropped the ball on this. But, at this point, any NWO is too much for me. Outside of two NWO matches, I don’t want to see any more of them. And, let’s not forget, they’ve had two dedicated releases and are all over the Nitro sets. Frankly, the 1995 to end of 1998 WCW era is WAY OVEREXPOSED.

      So, WWE dropped the ball, but they dropped it by having TOO MANY REPEATS. They need to make an UNRELEASED WCW set focusing on the pre-June 1994 period.

  6. ricky says:

    Totally dissapointed the sting and hogan matches wasnt on there…the biggest matches in the companys history

  7. kman says:

    wwe just keep screwing us putting to much repeat matches and lowering the collection time to 7 hours from 8 to 9 hours.

  8. Bill W says:

    What the heck no matches from 1995? And 1 match from 1996, and then only 2 matches from 1997? I would of at least put World War 3 from 1995 in, also Giant vs Hogan at Superbrawl 96 in the cage.

  9. Andy Garland says:

    sting vs black scorpion starrcade 90 rick steamboat vs tull starrcade 84

  10. XD says:

    Haven’t all (or most) of these matches already been put out on WWE DVD? There’s so much more to WCW’s history, and we keep getting the same stuff. Lazy.

  11. NickH says:

    What’s really stupid is nWo Hogan isn’t in any of the matches yet he is on the cover.

  12. alvaro says:

    I already have most of this matches, the ones I dont have I dont really care. Why buy it. Just for the packaging like gemni888.

  13. Bill Zohan says:

    Seems like they focused on the 80s and early 90s not 97-2000.

  14. josh m says:

    Plus would love to see some Dr.death/Terry Gordy tag matches from wcw.

  15. josh m says:

    Would love to see all them matches Anonymous. Great call.

  16. Anonymous says:

    Note to WWE: The two matches creating the biggest buzz are the two unreleased matches found on the first two DVDs (Flair/Garvin and Vader/Cactus).

    This means we want more WCW from the pre-June 1994 period.

    On the next WCW PPV DVD release, how about the following just off the top of my head:
    1/24/88 Bunkhouse Stampede – Bunkhouse cage match
    2/20/89 Chi-Town Rumble- Luger vs. Windham in a US title match
    5/7/89 WrestleWar – Road Warriors vs. Williams/Rotunda for the NWA tag titles
    12/13/89 Starrcade – Flair vs. Luger tournament match
    10/27/90 Havoc- Doom vs. Flair/Anderson for the NWA tag titles
    2/24/91 WrestleWar- Freebirds vs. Doom for the NWA tag titles
    5/19/91 SuperBrawl- Fujinami vs. Flair for the world title
    7/14/91 Bash- Sting vs. Nikita Koloff in a Russian chain match
    2/29/92 SuperBrawl- Sting vs. Luger for the WCW world title
    7/18/93 Beach Blast- Windham vs. Flair for the NWA title
    2/20/94 SuperBrawl- Vader vs. Flair in a Thunderdome match
    5/22/94 Slamboree- Cactus/Sullivan vs. Nasty Boys

    And, considering the network will make all the PPVs available, how about some UNRELEASED sets (specifically free NWA/WCW TV matches and angles focusing on the pre-June 1994 era)?

    • Andy Garland says:

      i agree to much same stuff. your match line up i agree on

    • Erik G. says:

      Oh go away with this fixation on redneck pre-Hogan WCW. That era was embarassing.

      • Anonymous says:

        Seriously? How close-minded can one person be? Something’s a little different then what you’re used to, so it’s automatically considered “redneck” and something not good enough for your precious eyes even though others want it. Guess what? This is 2014. You’re close-minded bigotry (as seen in other posts where you’re running down the types of people you’re suggesting like the pre-June 1994 NWA/WCW) doesn’t fly anymore.

  17. Ryan B says:

    I really dig the artwork on this one. But they could’ve chose a better picture of Hogan. He looks pretty derpy in that one.

  18. Kman says:

    Maybe they should change it to a 1 disk release so there will be less repeats just put unrelease matches.
    Can’t believe they keep doing this , people who put these dvd’s together can’t be real wrestling fans. Are these dvd’s they would want to buy?

  19. Nate says:

    Hopefully the Sting vs Vader Strap Match is added as a extra or something.

  20. CrimeDawg says:

    Yeah this looks really good, will definitely be getting this one.

  21. josh m says:

    Ahhhh…must be the resident d-bag. It was a question junior.you don’t like question?move on.just that easy.

    Anyway found flair-garvin from starrcade on a DVD I have from 2003 called bloodbath wrestling’s most incredible steel cage matches.

  22. Mongoose Wizard says:

    Thanks Mr JL you took the words right outta my mouth 🙂

  23. To josh m says:

    You’re on the internet right??? I am mean you’re commenting on this site… Maybe you simply google the event, the date, the match… I mean, sheesh.

  24. josh m says:

    Does anyone know if the the Flair-Garvin match where ron won the belt? I think it was at a house show but I know it was filmed.

  25. Mr JL says:

    Sting v Savage
    Spring Stampede 98
    on bluray extras, please

  26. josh m says:

    Thanks indyfan

  27. josh m says:

    So which matches aren’t repeats? I have so many DVDs it would take me forever to search them out.

    • indyfan says:

      Ronnie vs Flair from disc 1
      Vader vs Jack from disc 2
      DDP vs Savage from disc 3
      Jericho vs Juvi from disc 3
      Savage vs Hart from disc 3
      Steiner vs DDP frpm disc 3

      These are all UN released.

      The rest of the set is repeats.

  28. Aaron Park says:

    Too many repeats! I knew Rey vs Eddie would end up on there. Not spending money on this garbage

  29. Chris Gwilliam says:

    Another set putting the 3 Way Ladder match from Starrcade 2000 in there.

  30. Erik G. says:

    It seems like there is a still a lot of space left. I hope there is a lot of good blu-ray and maybe just maybe DVD exclusives. I still can’t believe how many matches from The Rise and Fall of WCW and The History of the World Heavyweight Championship are on this. There will probably be more on the exclusives, too. Maybe some good stuff since the exclusives have to stand out, in theory.

  31. nick says:

    I knew this would be filled with repeats! Ill still get it though for the 4 unreleased matches that i dont have.

  32. Charlie Brick says:

    Sounds ok, but can’t we get a Shawn micheals compilation, maybe called “Mr. Showstopper”, preferably with matches we have already seen like a billion times? maybe have marty jannetty interviewed in-between matches, telling us what he was been up to since he tried to escape through the barbershop window HBK threw him thru? I believe HBK does not have enough releases yet for his fans.

  33. Erik G. says:

    BTW….I know the re-releases are frustrating but BATB 96 has only been on two so far. Guerrero/Mysterio has been on four and could be on Mysterios set this year with alternate commentary. We also have four matches from Road Wild 98 which is a good sign.

    Seems like the main goal here was to re-release various matches from old sets. We see a lot from Rise and Fall of WCW, History of the World Heavyweight Championship, even one from Steve Austin: What? from 2002. I’m guessing they want to remove any reasons people have to buy Rise and Fall of WCW due to the newfound praise WCW receives in WWE. So we might see more of those matches on Volume 2…or WWE is just overworked and not putting much thought into it.

  34. Erik G. says:

    WAY too much from the ugly garbagy right wing idiotic southern 1987-1993 period. I *SO* don’t want to see that stupid shit period. Should have been a LOT more on the glorious Nitro era which was so revolutionary.

    • Erik G. says:

      BTW the cover is completely misleading as it mostly shows boom period guys yet has a lot of focus on the redneck NWA period. Let me guess that fat piece of sh*t Dusty Rhodes had his greasy fingers all over this. Why can’t he just f*ck off and die already?

      • Erik G. says:

        okay got a little angry there…still it’s frustrating…stop playing politics WWE

        • Anonymous says:

          So you’d rather see more of the overexposed, run-in filled Nitro era instead of watching excellent matches with well-rounded characters who were more than just a black and white t-shirt? NO THANKS! There’s only 2 matches on this entire set worthwhile and one is from 1987 and the other from 1993. The only other good ones have already been released.

          • Erik G. says:

            Well-rounded characters….who all looked the same, just plain tights and boring real names and appearances. Wrestling is about characters not guys in plain tights doing workrate.

            • Anonymous says:

              Okay, I get it now. You’ve never seen pre-June 1994 NWA/WCW. If you had, you’d know that was full of CHARACTERS who could TALK and WRESTLE as opposed to most of the NWO wrestlers who’s personality generally came from their T-shirts, lacked wrestling ability and could only spew the same old lines as the rest of their teammates. AND, before I forget to mention, they were also washed up has-beens.

  35. Erik G. says:

    People are putting way too much faith in the network. Every PPV ever is way too generous. You know they will change it eventually. Personally, I’m not getting it since I don’t watch the current product and I don’t like streaming.

    • Anonymous says:

      This speaks volumes as to how significant your opinion should be to WWE. If you don’t like the idea of potentially getting everything for only $9.99 per month, how could any DVD release satisfy you?

      • Erik G. says:

        Because I don’t have a regular source of income and I might not feel like watching it for months at a time, especially when it could and probably will be taken away eventually. Once again, you are putting total faith in the network succeeding and not changing.

        • Anonymous says:

          If you don’t have a regular source of income, then your opinion on DVD releases and everything else is even less important to WWE as you’re not likely to spend.

  36. Erik G. says:

    Oh wow, this is horrifingly bad. I mean I’m a huge WCW fanboy and I’ll still be getting it, but this is not what I wanted at all. Hopefully this is just a bump in the road and Volume 2 will be better but of course judging by the long waits for the Nitro series it will be a long wait for that, too. Hopefully the Blu-Ray (and crossing my fingers for DVD also but probably not) exclusives will make up for it.

  37. Steve says:

    All I have to say is Thank God for the WWE Network! I mean they just released a Goldberg set with the Halloween Havoc match vs. DDP in October! Typical lazy bullshit by WWE Home Video. Rey vs. Eddie Halloween Havoc again? We once again must always release an Eddie Guerrero match on any set that has anything to do with WCW. It’s hop secret the best selling sets of the last few years have been WCW themed. So doesn’t one of the geniuses that put these sets together realize that they release the same shit over and over again.

  38. Shane C. Montgomery says:

    The Vader -vs- Cactus Jack match sells this for me. Mostly repeats but still a good DVD. Is there going to be a Blu-Ray for this one?

  39. Nathan says:

    This reminds me of the Best of In Your House released last year. Mostly repeats, but just enough new content to make it a worthwhile purchase.

  40. victory73 says:

    Seems like a decent set just not my cup of tea. Definitely hard to narrow the best ppv matches due to so many shows on only 3 discs. The Starrcade and Clash sets were defined to those shows so those were better compilations.

    I look forward to seeing the Great American Bash set listings.

  41. SD Jones says:

    I’m sure most of you have a lot of these, but the set is a ‘Best Of’ collection. It’s not geared towards all of us hardcore collectors. Don’t confuse this with an “unreleased wcw” set. From the day it was announced, you all should have known exactly what to expect. I’m sure the casual fans and older viewers will take a look, just as intended. If you all really wanna judge the listing, judge it as a ‘Best of WCW’ listing, not as a ‘what I want’ listing. For what it is, they did a pretty good job. Lot of classics, lot of required viewing for any fan.

    • Anonymous says:

      Do you really believe that there are that many non-hardcore collectors buying DVDs these days? Face it: Physical media is dying and only appeals to the hardcores. The more they put together collections of repeats, the more those hardcores will be turned away and the people buying will only continue to shrink.

  42. Matt says:

    I’m hoping the blu ray exclusives are of the following:

    Hogan/Flair at BATB 1994
    Goldberg/Nash at Spring Stampede 1999
    Nash/Booker T at Fall Brawl 2000
    Goldberg/Luger Starrcade 2000
    and some good unreleased cruiserweight title matches
    And also:
    Funk/Flair from either Superbrawl or Uncensored 2000 can’t remember which ppv it took place in.

    • Fox says:

      …and I hope they’re not.

    • Anonymous says:

      Of the ones you listed, the only one I feel is a must have on DVD is Hogan/Flair. That said, I disagree with the year you have listed as it’s already been released.

      I’ve been waiting forever for them to finally put out Flair/Hogan from Uncensored 1999. This was effectively the last match where the real NWO was still relevant. And, Flair and Hogan pulled off a very entertaining double turn.

  43. mommy says:

    can someone post all the repeated matches and on what set, i want to see how many of these i really have

  44. John Peterson says:

    Matches like the Bash at the beach 96,Eddie Vs Rey,and Goldberg Vs DDP Need to be retired.Other than that.I think its a solid listing.Finally glad they put the Vader Vs Cactus Match on here.

  45. R&REXPRESS#1 says:

    Sadly disappointing really….so many matches that are repeating & a few that will be when the GAB set is released ….most of us want more NWA/WCW material (myself included) but not 3 or 4 DVDs a year with the same damn contents.

  46. Mike Pouli says:

    Match listing is fine I think the fact that there’s a Best of the Great American Bah set coming ou this summer hamstrung this set because the Great American Bash especially some of the mid-later 90’s bashes have great matches. Including Sting vs Meng from GAB 95, Malenko vs Mysterio from 1996, and Page vs Savage 2 from GAB 1997 amoung others.

    • Erik G. says:

      Yep. The “problem” some people have with that era is relieved by those good matches. I’m looking forward to GAB already.

  47. SRB says:

    No Rude? No Muta? No purchase.

  48. Jonny says:

    Wow!! Whinge. Moan. Boo. Moan. Whinge…. Read the title of the dvd. Read the synopsis . Read people, read.

  49. markacky78 says:

    Really was hoping for Steamboat Rude iron man from Bash 92. Great match!!

  50. KarlKayfabian says:

    I am really excited for the Garvin/Flair, Vader/Cactus, and Macho/DDP matches. All three were rated very high on my most wanted unreleased list.

  51. Richard says:

    The set starts off great but falls apart by Disc 3. There are several matches I would leave off. WCW in the Nitro Era was known more for the promos and angles than actual great wrestling IMHO.

    In the early years, I think I might have included :

    Midnight Express vs Fantastics – Bash 88
    Road Warriors vs Skyscapers – HH ’89
    Luger vs Windham – ChiRumble 89
    Sting vs Sid Vicious – HH 90

  52. KarlKayfabian says:

    I can live with repeats of great matches, really, I can. But do we really need THOSE two matches from ’88? How about Luger vs. Windham? I’m just saying…

  53. Steven Jackson says:

    Looks a good set. Worth getting for the WarGames and Vader vs. Cactus Jack. I probably won’t get it straight away, but definitely in the future. A good start to a series I hope continues =)

  54. Tony Schiavone says:

    This is the greatest PPV DVD in the history of our sport!!!!!!!!!

  55. LP1 says:

    Could care less about this DVD. This is only going to interest people overseas who won’t get the Network for another 10-11 months. For people in the US, in 12 days we’ll be able to own every single pay-per-view match in history. So this release is pointless for us.

    • michael says:

      the release isn’t pointless because some people are not getting the network and even if they are they would have to go through every single ppv individually and skip to the specific match they want to see. here on this set they will all be automatically played after the other with no effort required. also you get a physical copy FOREVER (forever). if you have the network it’s like a dvd rental, you don’t have it forever (unless of course you keep on buying another subscription), but with this dvd you have it forever with not having to worry about paying another subscription. That’s why i hate people that are getting rid of there collections. here’s a thought, what if the network fails and gets taken down? also they don’t have documentaries up or match comps so why would you get rid of those? i am getting the network and keeping my dvds because with dvds i can just pop it in and press play. while with the network i have to plug in my computer or start up my xbox and it will generally take a little longer. overall the network is great, but you should keep you dvds as a safety net just in case because you never know.

      • LP1 says:

        Who said anything about getting rid of DVDs? If you have a DVD recorder you can record everything off the Network and make your own DVD box sets. And you will have them forever. (FOREVER!) lol

    • Anonymous says:

      That’s a misconception actually. You own network access, you don’t actually own the content.

  56. Big Jon says:

    What happend in 1999, I notice that year is frequently missed?
    Was the Rey vs Eddie match where Ray actually lost his mask?

  57. Wonderllama says:

    Here come the same old whining again. Listen, there’s been like a half dozen DVD sets dedicated solely to WCW, as well as superstar sets featuring WCW matches. If the point of this set is WCW’s greatest matches, then repeats are inevitable. Yes I also have the ’97 Halloween Havoc match a couple times, but it’s one of the best matches in history so I understand.

    The good thing is that this is the first of a series, so Vol. 2 should include a lot more. I don’t remember WWE producing a Vol. 3 of a series, so this set needs to sell VERY well if you want to see more in the future.

    Another good thing will be having these matches in Blu-Ray. I am a newcomer to Blu-Ray myself. There is a big difference there, even in some old matches. A lot of these matches are making their Blu-Ray debut.

    If you could only own one WCW set… I think it should be this one. I suggest judging this set solely by its match quality. It’s pretty awesome.

    • indyfan says:

      Blu bray /dvd …. who cares. The only reason blu ray is good is for extra matches. I don’t need to see sweat beads rolling off men. It doesn’t make the match any better.

      I really hope the exclusives aren’t f**kin repeats.

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      are u really surprized people are complaing its wwe people thats all they do is complain ohh this match is on this dvd ohh we got another repeat who cares u got network now quit complaining wats next gonna bitch about dvd cover oh wait !!!

      • indyfan says:

        1) i don’t have access to the network until next year because i live in Canada.
        2) i don’t care about covers because i don’t watch the covers.

  58. rohfan81 says:

    wow I was really excited about this set until I saw the listing and its 21 matches wit 13 repeats………really wwe with the vast library that you own and you give us another repeat fest?its getting ridiculous they are trying to sell us the same thing over and over again.Unless the blu ray has some awesome and I mean friggin awesome extras im skipping this on,im very ver disappointed but at least I will save some money,so far this year I haven’t bought a single release

  59. AJ says:

    So excited for WCW Unreleased PPV Matches…wait…this isn’t it? Nope, it’s WCW’s BEST PPV matches, so of course some have already been released. The network is the priority and they have to leave people wanting to see more.

    • indyfan says:

      What about all the other repeats on other dvd sets? Ones that were repeated before the Network was even an issue. I have been collecting wwe dvds since 2004. And one thing that is constant with WWE is repeats. But to this level is insulting. This is why people end up downloadng the sets

  60. OldschoolHero says:

    wow. really WWE? once again these lazy idiots are ”double dipping” & presenting [ahem] the same matches we already have from previous DVD releases! what is so freaking hard about going into their vast archives of material & giving us rare matches we actually want to own? i just dont get it! :/

  61. indyfan says:

    Wow WWE out did themselves this time!!!! HOLY SH**!!!!

    Oh wait out of 21 matches so far. I own 15 of them already.. And im sure i own Ronnie Garvin vs Flair. So i may own 16 of them already.

    F**k you WWE, you lazy bastards.

  62. mcmax3000 says:

    I feel like I have that ladder match from Starrcade 2000 on about eight different DVD sets by now.

    There’s enough good early stuff on here for me to pick it up, since I’m outside the US, so it could be another year, or longer before I have any hope of seeing the WWE Network.

  63. Mark says:

    I’m just glad FINALLY Vader vs. Jack from Havoc 93 is getting a release. Such a great brawl.

  64. Mr Hesse says:

    I’ll have to see the blu ray exclusives before deciding on this one. Wasn’t the Greed match the final WCW PPV match ever?

  65. James Crossley says:

    If not for the WWE Network this would have excited me!

    Glad War Games 1992 made the cut!

    Too many repeats from other compilations so will look forward to watching full PPVs instead!

  66. Justin F says:

    Skipping it. Saw about half of those matches so many times, I don’t really need to see them again.

  67. WCWonBlu-rayawesome says:

    Good Match Listing, for me Disc 1 Looks the best out of all the discs but disappointed to see the Bash at the Beach 1996 tag match included which was on the NWO the Revolution DVD/Blu-ray, do we really need to see that again, same goes for the halloween hovac 1998 Goldberg v DDP Match that was recently released on Goldberg Ultimate Collection DVD/Blu-ray do we really need to have that again, another one the War games 1992 match do we really need to have that again on another release when it was released on the War games Anthology DVD/Blu-ray released back in 2013? those are my disappointments but other than its a good listing, Nice to see the Texas death match from Halloween Hovac 1993 between Cactus Jack and Vader included a 1st time release but the annoying thing is Jessie Commentary is going to be muted but other than that will please fans picking up the set, the Luger Pillman match from Halloween Hovac 1989 is good match as is the Flair vs Sting match from GAB 1990, Flair Steamboat 1 from Chi-town Rumble 1989 is a classic and deserves it place on here even though its been released on Flair set, Steamboat vs Austin from Bash in the beach 94 is there best match against each other from there rivalry from 94 so nice to see it included, nice to see Bret Hart vs Randy Savage from Slamboree 1998 included but other than i think not a lot of people are going to be disappointed with this set cause you will be able to watch all the matches included on this set on the WWE Network where you can watch all the WCW PPV’s in full.

    Look forward to see what the blu-ray exclusives are going to be hope at least a extra 5 more matches are included and remember this is just Volume 1, Volume 2 i feel is going to be the one.

  68. Wonderllama says:

    That’s pretty awesome for Vol.1! I suggest these matches for Vol. 2!

    1990 WrestleWar – Ric Flair vs. Lex Luger
    1993 SuperBrawl – Vader vs. Sting (Strap Match)
    1993 Starrcade – Vader vs. Ric Flair
    1995 SuperBrawl – Vader vs. Hulk Hogan
    1996 Bash at the Beach – Rey Mysterio vs. Psychosis
    1996 World War 3 – Rey Mysterio vs. Ultimo Dragon
    1996 Starrcade – Dean Malenko vs. Ultimo Dragon
    2000 Fall Brawl – Goldberg vs. Scott Steiner

  69. I like it, maybe doing it for specific years and branding one as “The NWA years” or something like that would’ve been better, but there’s some great stuff on there. Is anyone keeping track of how many DVDs Mysterio vs. Guerrero has been on now!?

  70. Big Cal says:

    Oh look, they filled the set with a ton of repeats. Anything good on there has been released a bunch of times already. Most of the unreleased stuff isn’t worth being on there. So much incredible WCW stuff to choose from, and they continue to f**k up DVD’s…

  71. David says:

    Listing seems decent. Vader vs. Cactus from HH 93 is finally included and glad they included some 2000-2001 matches.

    Could have done without the BATB 96 match and if they really wanted to pick a match from 1996 they could have put either:

    – Savage vs. Flair – Superbrawl
    – Sting vs. Steven Regal – Great American Bash
    – Savage vs. Hogan – Halloween Havoc

    The BATB 96 Hostile Taker match has been really overplayed. It was a great moment that changed wrestling, but the match itself was pretty average and really shouldn’t be considered “greatest PPV match”.

    • @IMDJLUIS says:

      Agreed. A couple of repeats that take up too much time for the later years of WCW that I would have preferred to see.

  72. @IMDJLUIS says:

    This is why I would have preferred to see them split up this series by years. I would rather not see the NWA stuff. I truly didn’t find WCW entertaining until about 94/95 when I started watching, but I did go back and watch older stuff before then and just never found it enjoyable to watch. They skipped the entire year of 1995, and there were some great PPV matches that year like Arn Anderson vs. Ric Flair @ Fall Brawl, Sting vs. Ric Flair @ World War 3, DDP vs. Johnny B. Badd @ Halloween Havoc, and many others. Oh well, WWE Network will crush this set.

  73. Vintage Simon says:

    It’s pretty astounding that WWE has only released one DVD set on a present-day superstar in the last 16 months (and that was Triple H, who’s a part-timer at best). And nothing on the schedule for 2014 either. Pretty worrying really. I guess the next one will be for Batista, who’s been in one match in the last four years.
