    Can’t wait to see this set… looks AMAZING! One episode I deff want to see is the X-Mas themed episode from 1999… the one where Steph & Triple H took over Raw! 😉

  2. David says:

    Maybe the Blu-ray exclusives could be couple of early RAW shows from 93-96 when they were 1 hour…since they put about 90 minutes of exclusives they could fit two 45 minute episodes.

    Have a feeling the DVD packaging is going be like the Summerslam and Survivor Series Anthology with the cardboard slots holding the discs. They make 10 Disc Blu-ray cases so that is a given.

    Definitely looking forward to this one.

  3. Brian Kraemer says:

    Now I wish I didnt blow all my Amazon Money because this looks amazing Blu Ray.. would have to see listing and episodes…..

  4. Mr Disc says:

    I’m looking forward to seeing what this Raw box set will look like.

  5. Mr Disc says:

    Well i know which box set i’m gonna be buying come December for sure.

  6. Jake E says:

    Ooops my bad your correct i looked at the dvd version.

  7. Jake E says:

    Actually david on blu ray it’s $62.99

    $27.00 cheaper

  8. Anthony says:

    I think they are going to put a 10-12 disc best of Chris Benoit set. I bet it’s close to happening. I can’t wait

  9. Scott says:

    Wow! Now this is a set that I’m really excited for. I have been wanting complete, unedited shows of Raw for years and now to get them on blu ray will be outstanding. This is a day one purchase for me. I just hope this set sells well so maybe it can open the door for other blu ray sets.

  10. @IMDJLUIS says:

    The only episode of raw I could think of that I would want to see in full is the night WCW and ECW joined forces to create the alliance. That whole episode was great. But knowing WWE, it’ll be full episodes that just had like 1 decent moment.

  11. Aaron says:

    complete un-cut episodes, you say? don’t care what the cost is, SOLD!

  12. John says:

    Since it is coming out on December 3rd, why pay for it? Just put it on your Christmas wish list which I am going to do!

  13. SCSA says:

    Well I only buy Blu- Ray’s n with the RAW set being a 10 disc, it must be over £100! 🙁

    Ne ways, Im only gonna buy it as long as I like the content; there should be plenty of RAW episodes from the ATTITUDE era!

    I was really disappointed when they didn’t add the ‘sweetchin music to Mr McMahon’ to the top 100 RAW Moments set 🙁

  14. Jake E says:

    The history of wwe blu ray on amazon says its released november 19th for $35.96 in the us but no the uk(it may change).

  15. Jamyn Blanton says:

    I hope that the RAW 10/12 Disc set isn’t too expensive. I want it but, I don’t know if I will pay like $200 I would maybe go like $75. When does it come out?

  16. ALK says:

    Hoping it doesnt hit the £100 mark.

    Also hope it sells well. It wouldnt stop them doing a 15th Anniversary Smackdown set in the same vain, or hell, maybe something like “The Top 20 WCW Nitro Episodes” if it did. Then heck, maybe then they’ll start every fan’s dream and do full Raw episode boxsets in chronological order. XD

  17. David says:

    $110-$125 seems about right for the Blu-ray set. Sports Blu-ray compilation are pretty expensive in general. The NBA put a 4 Disc Lakers vs. Celtics Finals 2010 set with all 7 games in their entirety and it was like $70-$80 with an MSRP of $90.

  18. shank says:

    No way the set costs more than $70 or $80 on DVD.

  19. Timothy Thorpe says:

    No matter how you look at it, it’s going to cost a lot of money. Anything less than $100 will be surprising for blu ray, in my opinion.

  20. LP1 says:

    I still don’t understand why WWE chooses to ignore the first 10 years of the company’s existence (January 1953-January 1963). I get that there is most likely little to no footage at all from that era, but it’s still absurd to erase those years. One of the biggest draws in WWE history was Antonino Rocca in the 1950s and he gets even less mention these days than Bruno does. Some people say “Well, they were part of the NWA during those years, so they weren’t really their own company.” And to that I say they were also again a part of the NWA from 1971-1983, but I’m pretty sure those years won’t be ignored. It would be like doing a history of WCW set and not talking about 1988-1993. Or a history ECW set and not talking about 1992-1994. Even TNA was part of the NWA from 2002-2007. Imagine a history of TNA set without mentioning the first 5 years. Pretty important years too.

    The only thing that changed in 1963, as far as WWE is concerned, is the name of the company(which changed again in March 1979 and May 2002) and they also created their own World Title. Everything else remained exactly the same. The same roster, the same Champions, the same owners, same management, same building leases, same arena contracts, same TV shows, same stockholders(Capitol Wrestling was a publicly traded company until Vince Jr. bought them out). I guess it’s easier to just go on Wikipedia instead of doing actual research and studying the real history.

    I’m sorry for ranting, that’s just always been one of my pet peeves.

    • Joshua says:

      I agree with you, I find it irritating that the CWC years are completely ignored as well.

      • Anonymous says:

        A bigger pet peeve of mine is the way they’ve never done an impartial release on the history of Jim Crockett Promotions. I’d very happily settle for a JCP unreleased 10 DVD set. This is something that a very significant segment of the audience wants to see. Proof of that can be seen in the recently released “Good Old Days” kickstarter project that many people contributed hard earned dollars to have a (somewhat amateurish) documentary finally completed on JCP. Yet, WWE continually overlooks the company. Why? I’d rather watch JCP from 1975 to 1988 than anything else they have in their vaults (with a close second being WCW from the end of JCP through to June 1994).

        At least, forgetting about the first 10 years of the WWF is somewhat understandable as it’s a convenient way of presenting the company as celebrating its 50th anniversary. Forgetting about JCP is just plain mind-boggling and a slap in the face to fans in the 30s and 40s — the prime DVD buying audience these days.

  21. Tommy D says:

    Well, a 3 disc Blu Ray runs retail around $30, so I’d assume we’d be looking at $115-$120.

  22. Rob L says:

    10 disc blu ray set? Wow! Sounds amazing. What are your speculations on price?

    • Anonymous says:

      3 discs retails for about 20, so multiply that by 4 for the DVD having 12 discs and you’d get 80
      A Blu-Ray for a 3 disc set is usually about 24, so using the same math, at four times the regular price, it’d be about 96.
