Any word on a listing yet for Great American Bash?
Just when shipping to Canada was decent from WWEShop now they started to charge sales tax for Canadians. I assume this is the equivalent to “import charges” Amazon.com includes.
I really hope the list won’t be filled with repeats but the important matches of it’s history along with a nice few gems.
How soon until the match listing arrives?
Amazon UK is currently offering upcoming WWE Blu Rays (including Paul Heyman, Sting and OMG 2) at a cost of £40.74. That’s $65.18 for a two-disc set. Insane.
For people that hate repeats and have the Network will probably want to skip this. I feel it will be quite similar to the Greatest WCW PPV Matches set with matches that were released in the past.
Every Bash is already available on the Network so nothing really will be new at all.
There’s some of the 1985 – 1987 pre-PPV Great American Bash shows which aren’t on the Network. So let’s hope they occupy the first two discs. Lol
To my knowledge and the DVD’s i own only a handful of matches from the GAB are available on DVD Including Sting/Koloff vs Anderson/Blanchard, Rhodes vs Windham, Luger vs Steamboat, Sting vs Flair, Luger vs Windham, Sting vs Vader, Wright vs Pillman, and Savage vs Page 2 so i think this DVD actually has potential to have quite a few obscure matches thrown in. I also don’t get the complaint about repeats when it’s only a handful of matches out of a 3 disc set.
Not sure why it says 1985-2009 in the Bash synopsis. It’s as if the 2012 SmackDown special never happened. That would be like having a King Of The Ring release and not mentioning 2006, 2008 and 2010 because they were Raw specials.
Actually 2006 was pretty much a SmackDown tournament too.
The 2006 Great American Bash featured Booker T winning the Heavyweight Title as well as some other good matches.
Yes, I was talking about King Of The Ring 2006. The whole tournament(except the finals) was on SmackDown.
Interesting how Sting, Dusty and Flair were also used for the Best of Starrcade cover as well.
Cover looks great. Looking forward to the match listing. I know they usually get the releases first, but there is a small bit of irony of a product called “Great American Bash” coming out in Europe and the UK first.
