Not a fan of these. I wish they could have picked four matches spanning each man’s career that have never been released on DVD. But, I guess they’re okay as the company probably looks at them as gateway DVDs to create a larger DVD-buying audience. Let’s see if it works. If so, great idea. If not, wasted releases.
Wwe should start putting there house shows on DVD.
When WWE release “The Best of Madison Square Garden” next year, hopefully alot of house show matches will be on there. WWE Classics On Demand already show house shows with commentary from the 1980’s and early 1990’s.
Technically the MSG shows from that era weren’t really house shows. Every show from the late 70’s up until 1992 were televised.(with the rare exception of a random show that wouldn’t be for whatever reason). “WWF From Madison Square Garden” was a monthly show that aired live on the MSG Network and in some cases on the USA Network(and even a couple of times in the late 70’s it aired on HBO). MSG Network was available on most northeastern cable companies at that time unless you had one of those old C-band satellite dishes then you can watch it from all over the country. Today MSG Network is available in pretty much 99% of all cable companies. Too bad WWE doesn’t do a monthly MSG show anymore.
Yeah, that makes alot of sense. I always looked at those and matches from the Boston Garden as house shows for some reason. I think the last televised show they did at MSG was in 1997 a few weeks before WrestleMania 13. I could be wrong though…
Yes they did a one time MSG tv show the Sunday before Mania 13, I believe on a tape-delay. That was the show headlined by Sid vs Bret for the Title in a Cage, but the show went off the air before the Cage Match because they already advertised a Sid-Bret Cage match to take place the next night on Raw and didnt want the same match airing 2 nights in a row. So the MSG cage match became a dark match. If i remember right, that MSG show was a test to see how it would do ratings-wise to maybe start airing them regularly again. I guess the ratings werent good since even Raw at that time wasnt pulling in good numbers. As far as a regular tv show on the MSG Network went though, the final show was in March 1992, a couple of weeks before Mania 8.
I never saw the Rey-Dolph NOC 2009 match but the match at Summerslam that year was great.
for what they are putting on these dvds–4 to 6 matches–they might as well go back into the vhs business.
all the same difference–buy a vhs and get mostly 30-45 minute crappers and more of the same here as most matches are ppv matches anyway and probably most people buy all of the ppv dvds anyway.
good matches for the hbk dvd but with the other sets there is already 2 or 3 times before this that the matches were released.
Any word on whether or not the WWE are continuing this series??
No more scheduled in November or December, and no sign of them in the 2013 schedule draft. So it looks like these two are the last. It was probably planned that way.
I hat to see them end, I would love to see them continue to release two a month of their current roster and mix in a legend here and there. Too bad, I was really starting to get into these.
I Quite like the Shawn Michaels Basic DVD , the Match he had with Chris Jericho at Judgement Day 2008 is a Gem of Match and nice ring psychology by both men, the match would start a great fued between both men for the most part of 2008, but have it on judgement day 08 dvd which is going to be rare here in the UK soon as its going out of print,
the great american bash 2008 was awesome aswell but not included her for obvious reason due to blood and running time,
I have all the matches from both the rey mysterio and shawn michaels dvds on other dvds,
If i was new i defo would pick up the Shawn Michaels set!!
