    WTF? Doesn’t this assclown know there is already an amazing movie called “For All Mankind”, about the Apollo missions? Jesus, talk about from the sublime to the ridiculous…

  2. tom says:

    Match listings?

  3. DoubleASpineBuster says:

    This is going to be awesome. Finally some REAL Cactus Jack matches from WCW

  4. Love Maker says:

    Oh my mercy, I had fantasized about this. Foley not being in the wwe hall of fame yet, in addition to no actual wwe DVD release in 10 years, in addition to no DVD release containing a documentary on his career, had made me excited at the probable chance of 2013 being the ripe year for pickin’. Especially so that he’s been back with wwe for a while now. While I do have his other DVD releases and his auto biographies, I will love to hear what fellow superstars have to say about both there experiences with the hardcore legend, and how they reacted to Mick moments not involving them. Throw in the quality of Bly ray, additional commentary, and mr socko and you’ve got me sold! Bang bang!

    i hope they include the match from summerslame from 1999 against triple h and stone cold steve austion

  7. Mark D says:

    While I can see the topic of re-released matches is a divisive one, a point which people have either forgotten (or are ignoring) is the fact the the last Mick Foley DVD was released almost 10 years ago! (Even the re-release was six years ago). People are discussing his previous DVD like it was released a short time ago. IMO the way to go is to include those career matches, however try and add value to them – such as an alternate commentary. For example who wouldn’t want to see HIAC or Mick’s first WWE Title win with Foley and JR doing commentary? Plus hopefully everything is blur-free this time (which is always a win!).

    • Brad Attitude says:

      i honestly don’t pay attention to the normal commentary sometimes and even with alternate commentary i don’t think my attention for it will change much. my focus is on the entire match so i’d rather go for match quality over commentary no matter how important it is. i’m just not a fan of repeated matches either even if there is alternate commentary or not.

  8. KarlKayfabian says:

    Would live to see the Broad Street Bully Match from Slamboree ’94 on this, but only with Ventura’s commentar left intact!

  9. REality Check says:

    If this thing has a lot of repeats, I’m not buying. If you want the Michaels match, it’s already available on Mick Foley: Hard Knocks & Cheap Pops, Mick Foley: Greatest Hits & Misses, Shawn Michaels: From the Vault and I think one more DVD title. It’s not like that match was the defining moment of his career in much the same way as the Hell in a Cell with the Undertaker, which is already available on four different DVDs. Let him talk about those matches, then include another unreleased match with that same wrestler. And, they can even include a line indicating “Courtesy of the XYZ release” to help fans that still haven’t bought that match find it.

    Enough already with the repeats! If a guy is worthy of another release, there should be plenty of quality unreleased material to include. If there isn’t, maybe he isn’t so great after all and they shouldn’t make another set of him. If they do and choose to include more than 10% repeats, I’m not buying it.

    • Anonymous says:

      First off, this is not a “Mankind Unreleased” DVD set like the Hogan and Bret DVDs. Its a definitive collection of Mick Foley’s best matches and moments, like the latest Austin DVD. Foley admitted countless times his match with HBK from Mind Games was the greatest match of his career. So don’t be surprised if this is included, because I’m 99% sure it will be.

      As for vs Taker, its on 4 different releases, but this time it will not have the WWF scratch logo blurred and maybe they might include alternate commentary to add to it. To this very day the match is talked about and raised the level of violence for HIAC matches. Sure its not a masterpiece but it defined the Attitude era and Mick Foley, so again i wouldn’t be surprised if its included.

  10. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    I don’t care which matches are on this, and I fully expect to see “repeats”. There SHOULD be repeats, in my opinion. I’m most looking forward to the documentary and whatever exclusives the Blu-ray edition will have. I want the Hell in a Cell with Taker on there. It belongs on here.

    • ck says:

      Repeats are fine. Having repeats from Foley’s previous DVDs is another story. Don’t you think we have enough of Foley’s In Your House match with Shawn Michaels, or his Hell in a Cell match with The Undertaker? Enough is enough.

      • Vincenzzzzzo says:

        Unlike most people, repeated matches aren’t an issue for me. His match with Shawn Michaels at Mind Games and his match with Taker at King of the Ring are two of his greatest in his entire career. Why wouldn’t they be on this? Because YOU already own them on other sets? Lol. Ok.

        • Anonymous says:

          You said: “I don’t care which matches are on this.”

          Then you said: “There SHOULD be repeats” and ”’I want the Hell in a Cell with Taker on there.”

          Which one is it? You realize that you’re contradicting yourself my saying you don’t care what matches are on it and then say you want a particular one, don’t you?

          Furthermore, you also said you’re “most looking forward to the documentary.” In that case, since you don’t care about the matches and only seem to care about the documentary, maybe you should leave the match discussion to those who care about it and forget your constant sheep-like following and praise of everything the WWE does because unless you’re trying to troll, you’re not adding anything constructive to the discussion.

          • Vincenzzzzzo says:

            It’s obvious you have a reading disorder, and you may want to re-read my post. Maybe thats why you chose to hind behind the mask of “Anonymous” so people can’t call you out on the BS you write. I’d like that match on there, but it doesn’t matter to me either way. Clearly, you missed my entire point. Not surprising.

            Some say WWE and pro wrestling in general isn’t what it used to be. Maybe so, but all I know is that “fans” like you, crybabies actually, have ruined the business I love with your constant complaining and whining. Instead of enjoying what we get, theres always a good amount of you who ruin the fun for others. Thats sad and PATHETIC, really.

            I guess if my opinion doesn’t match yours, and if I don’t BASH WWE every chance I get, I guess what I have to say doesn’t matter. Well guess what? As long as there are crybabies like yourself on forums like these, there will be just as many of people like me to combat you and make you look stupid every chance we get.

            • Dave says:

              I totally agree with you Vincezzzzzo. Seems like around here whining about the WWE endlessly and complaining about match selection being “repeated” are considered “constructive criticism”…To me it just sounds like a bunch of crybabies throwing a tantrum when they don’t get what they want.

              And i just LOL when people around here say a “Best of Mick Foley” DVD should not include his match with HBK from Mind Games – when Foley mentions repeatedly that it was the best match of his career. Just because people here already have it on other releases.

              Same deal with the Best of In Your House, the rule around here is now the HIAC with HBK/Taker is not allowed on anymore DVD releases because 10% percent of the “fans” already bought every single WWE DVD. It was rated 5* and according to crybabies here it should be excluded? on a “BEST OF” In Your House DVD?…what a bonehead idea.

              People here clearly don’t understand the concept of business and would probably fail running their own if they had a chance.

              • Anonymous says:

                It’s really amazing how the wrestling business brings out the business acumen in some people. If you guys really understood the business you’d understand that it’s in a downswing. So the main people who are buying these new releases are the very hardcore fans you fight against. Do the hardcore fans want repeated matches? No.

                Just go to the In Your House thread where you’ve both been aptly named “tools” and you’ll see that the post you reference about the fans wanting no more than 10% repeats has roughly two times more “likes” than what most top posts around here typically get. So you sheep-like WWE “fans” always wanting repeats are in the minority.

                And, considering WWE is a global company in the business of making money by catering to the masses, not the select few, your opinions are largely irrelevant.

                • Dave says:

                  Before whining about repeats, maybe you should understand what kind of release this is, before doing what you crybabies do best.

                  And LOL about being labeled “tools” just because we are WWE fans and support the business no matter what. You think you people are cool just cause you throw your tantrums because WWE included matches you already own on DVD.

                  So to you people bitching and complaining about whatever WWE does makes you fans, correct?

                  First off WWE don’t give a damn if you own Foley vs. Taker HIAC and Foley vs HBK on 5 different DVD releases…they will include what they see fit and satisfies Foley’s entire career…like it or not, those two matches defined Mick Foley.

                  • pmdmf says:

                    I have a solution for both sides (whether or not WWE actually does it is another manner): On at least HIAC and the Mind Games matches, have alternate commentary. Both matches on the set and something new for each match.

                    A long time ago I thought I heard that Mick was doing commentary work for this. I hope these matches are the ones that he’s doing.

                  • Anonymous says:

                    So in other words, you took four paragraphs to add nothing to the discussion. I’ll take two sentences to add that it appears what others said about you is accurate in that you really are a tool who foolishly agrees with everything the company does and doesn’t realize that constructive criticism helps.

                    • Dave says:

                      LOL so complaining and whining is considered “constructive criticism”? Give me a break!…get off your imaginary high horse.

                      “constructive cristicism”…LOL!

                    • Daniel Bee says:

                      It’s getting a bit tiresome to see the same old debate over repeats and over who should or should not be considered real fans of WWE. I doubt anybody truly *wants* repeats because they are exactly that, it’s just for “Best of” releases many have learned to expect some because of the nature of the beast. However, I guess if the average person is only going to whip out one DVD to watch on a given evening, they’d want the best stuff at their disposal there and then, without going through the rest of their collection. Maybe that person is Vincenzzzzzo. Everybody is different.

                      The alternative commentary is a good way to appease both arguments, I agree.

  11. Steven Jackson says:

    Its great to see Mick Foley has finally got a DVD set with a documentary, I never tire of him, or his stories, so this will be enjoyable to watch. His integrity inside and outside the ring, for me make him one of the all-time greats, along with his historic legacy of matches which only add to his future WWE Hall of Fame Career. After watching “Mick Foley: Greatest Hits and Misses-Hardcore Edition” I can’t wait to see the classic matches and promos this set will have on it =)

  12. rc93 says:

    Foley is my favourite wrestler but there are enough sets on him already just like there are too many autobigraphies, theres not a lot that could be put on this set to make it a must buy

  13. NickP says:

    Hopefully we get mick vs terry funk in their death match from japan.. Long shot because of pg, but its still a hope

  14. SRB says:

    I’m probably the only person on this site who isn’t excited about this set in the least as I feel Foley is more of a background wrestler. I believe there are more wrestlers deserving of compilations at this point. Are we going to put the hell in a cell match on DVD for the 100th time? I think a lot of Foley’s rare work was already featured on “Hits and Misses” and over the years his matches have been featured on various sets and I feel those sets gave him a lot of attention, so I’m really not sure what else WWE is going for unless we really get some of his ECW and WCW matches, which I think could be explored in more detail. At the same time, his Raw work seems to be on almost every set, so I’m not sure what else they can do. I’d like to see some of his Japan work there, but it’s likely too violent, but then again, what about Foley’s career wasn’t violent? Dude Love?

  15. rohfan81 says:

    itll probably be pg so no point getting it foley was only fun to watch in the insane matches and violent ones i mean really can anyone say they enjoyed mick foley in a wrestling match?like flair said he was a glorified stuntman without a shred of actual wrestling talent

  16. Anonymous says:

    I want to see the documentary

  17. X-23 says:

    I will shocked if this DVD *doesn’t* include a ton of repeats from “Mick Foley’s Greatest Hits & Misses”… I bet it will. It has to. That set had Hell in a Cell with Undertaker, Mind Games with HBK, the Street Fight with HHH, hardcore matches with Orton and Edge. Those are easily his greatest matches. It was a classic DVD. I don’t see how you can top it.

    • John says:

      I hope there will no repeats but then again, it would be nice to see repeats in high quality, I guess it is a win win!

  18. t says:

    The exclusive version – is it BEST BUY exclusive?

    How can one buy BB versions in Europe?

    • Mr Z says:

      I’ve been under the impression that the store exclusive version of DVDs in the US with extra matches are the standard version in Europe. Like with the Clash of the Champions DVD, if somebody in the US wanted the bonus Hogan/Flair match they had to go to Best Buy but in the UK the Best Buy version was the standard version sold everywhere.

  19. Mr Z says:

    I’ve read Foley’s books and his life is a great story so the doc should be really good. I’m likely to buy it. Hopefully there will be some previously unreleased matches. If the match list is good and I do buy it, I’m definitely getting the version with the sock!

  20. fmwfan says:

    I cant belive Shane Douglas is actually in it

  21. Alec says:

    Don’t we also know for a fact that Shawn Michaels sat down for this? I saw it on their Twitters months ago.

  22. nightmare says:

    Wow how many Mick Foley will there be for me it depends on what on this I mean I read all his books so the Doc is something I don’t care about

  23. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    Great title for the DVD. Next to Ted DiBiase and Jerry Lawler, I’ve always wanted an in depth bio DVD on Foley. Hopefully, Terry Funk and Mick tell some great stories about their wars in Japan, etc. This has to be a 2 1/2 hour documentary, at least. As far as matches go, I don’t mind what they put on there because most of them will be on Blu-ray for the first time.

    ….And I’m definitely picking up the Socko puppet. No doubt.

  24. AzzA says:

    For all the people asking why Dee Snider is on the doco it is because they are close friends

  25. John says:

    I have to laugh at including Mr Socko puppet! I hope it will have great matches that are not repeats from the 2 Mick Foley DVDs that was already released!

  26. Anonymous says:

    Not too excited for the doc because I can’t imagine what it can cover that hasn’t been covered by the four biographies, but I’m excited to see the match listing.

  27. KarlKayfabian says:

    Most of the WCW matches I really hope to see included feature Ventura on commentary. I wonder if they bite the bullet and feature The Body’s commentary a la the Steamboat DVD.

  28. KarlKayfabian says:

    I think this is a case of reserving judgement until after the doc is viewed. To me, the matches will be key. I’m cool with his title win, first HITC, and maybe even his match vs Shawn being repeated, but hopefully all other matches are not repeats.

  29. RabidHeat says:

    Dee Snider? Why? Lol!

  30. Thomas Goodearl says:

    I want a Mr Socko!!!!! Please be in the UK version!

  31. Ryan says:

    Looking forward to this one on dvd. He really deserves a good doc.

  32. ck says:

    Dee Snyder? NICE!!!!

  33. neverAcquiesce says:

    Very cool to see Funk and Douglas on here. Vader’s great too, though Harley Race would’ve been nice, given his importance during the Jack/Vader feud.

  34. Geolink says:

    I want Rock to be apart of this documentary.

  35. Daniel Bee says:

    How can ya not want an in depth documentary on Foley?

    Win one for The Micker!

    • Reality CHeck says:

      I’m indifferent on it. I really don’t think his story will be all that compelling, but I could be wrong. As long as they keep the documentary to about 75 minutes I guess it should be at least okay. Most of the ones that are longer than that tend to put me to sleep.

      • Anonymous says:

        Man, people on this thread are completely missing the point. The whole appeal of Foley is not just workrate–its that he wasn’t a “jock”. Anyone could relate to him. He was a real, complex human being, not a typical wrestler. You can hold up his body of work from mid-1997 to early 2000 against anyone in wrestling history. He could do it all-comedy, drama, action. I can’t imagine being so closed minded that you couldn’t appreciate this man’s work, and the only reason I can think of is that you must be really young. When I was younger(a teenager during Foley’s peak) I didn’t “get” his appeal, but now that I am older and can appreciate life from different angles I can see the tremendous depth this man brought to the table.

      • Mark D says:

        @RealityCHeck You don’t think Mick’s story will be compelling? I’m guessing you haven’t read any of his books because Mick’s story is one of the most compelling in wrestling history.

    • Brad Attitude says:

      I’m not all that interested in Foley’s dvd or documentary either. His previous dvd had a lot of bad matches. And despite his work and the number of good matches he had in several promotions with the major stars, I still agree that Foley was nothing more but a comedy figure and a glorified stuntman.

  36. Reality CHeck says:

    Not really looking forward to this one very much because it just seems there isn’t much left unreleased Foley footage. Hopefully this set has all of his remaining unreleased matches with Vader, Sting, HHH, Austin and The Rock. Beyond that, I can’t see this as having anything of any value.

    • neverAcquiesce says:

      Always good to get this stuff unblurred and on Blu-ray, though.

      • Reality CHeck says:

        To an extent, I agree on the unblurred stuff. But, I don’t agree with the idea that getting it on the first time on Blu-Ray matters. Assuming its standard definition footage, or to put it simpler, something pre-2008, the footage won’t look any better than it did the first time it was released. I certainly wouldn’t pay for a Blu-Ray re-release of something that’s original format was standard definition and already available in DVD.

        • neverAcquiesce says:

          Maybe it’s me, or my setup, but I find SD stuff on BR looks better than HD footage on DVD. I always welcome anything on Blu-ray.

          • Person says:

            It’s an obvious upgrade. Colors are more vibrant and picture sharper. Standard def WWF stuff isnt a HUGE step-up from dvd to bluray, but there is certainly an improvement… and I always prefer and welcome the highest quality picture available.

            • neverAcquiesce says:

              Exactly. My Elimination Chamber 2010 DVD, shot in HD, is not nearly as sharp or vibrant as 90s footage transferred to Blu-ray. For that reason I won’t mind seeing HIAC, Mind Games, or the Rumble Street Fight again, especially without blurring. Also would love to see the “I Quit” match with Rock, since the blurring on Rock’s set makes it nearly unwatchable, but, since it was just on that set, and I’m sure it’s not Foley’s greatest memory, I won’t hold my breath.

    Great title for it this is gonna be Awesome

    I’m so excited for this one! I really hope it’s a nice long documentary, and not one of the quick 1 hour ones they’ve been doing lately!
