The “RAW 20th Anniversary Collection” DVD is back in stock here on Amazon.com at the moment! Thanks to the several WDN readers who noticed.
As we’ve mentioned, the special 12-disc box set was a limited edition release and since December stock quickly sold out in a number of places including Amazon.
Here we are at the beginning of the second round in the first ever WrestlingDVDNews.com March Mania Tournament. We’ve had a few tough decisions to make so far, but folks it’s only going to get harder from here onwards.
The first round saw the elimination of some fantastic DVDs (many of which would have been potential finalists had the random pairings gone differently). Here is just a few of the DVDs which were eliminated in the previous round:
- The History of the WWE Championship
- Goldberg: The Ultimate Collection
- WrestleMania XX
- The Epic Journey of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
- Bret “Hitman” Hart – The Dungeon Collection
- The Legacy of Stone Cold Steve Austin
- Shawn Michaels: My Journey
- The Ultimate Ric Flair Collection
- The Triumph & Tragedy of World Class Championship Wrestling
As with the previous round, just go through the options and simply select your favorite WWE DVD from each pairing. As this is a single elimination tournament, the DVD from each pairing with the most votes will proceed to round three. In the event of a complete split decision BOTH titles will be eliminated.
Here’s how the brackets look at the beginning of the second round…
Round Two will close on Thursday 27th February at 11:59pm EST (4:59am GMT).

I hear that Brad
That is bs Shawn Michaels My Journey lost out to ECW One Night Stand 05.
Hey, it’s a hell of a DVD. If it’s going to lose, that’s one of the better ones to lose to. At least it didn’t lose out to some no-name PPV show that nobody remembers. Haha!
I wanna see a sequel to the Best of Saturday Nights Main Event in the future!
Hoping best of Saturday nights main event continues to fly under the radar
It’s got the benefit of nostalgia behind it, along with the fact that it’s a really good set. I voted for it on both rounds so far.
We all know odds are Wrestlemania X-Seven is going to win but I’m hoping for an upset
yeah.. you problaly right about that..if this was for only ppv dvd’s. I do believe that X7 will be among the final four…
but, as a whole set, WM X7 does not have enough extra material to challenge say for example Stone Cold Bottom line set..and what an upset it would be if those would to be challenge each other.. time will tell.. 🙂
If I were faced with Mania X-Seven vs. Steve Austin: Bottom Line, my vote would be for the Austin DVD. Mania was a great show, and it’s a collector’s item today, but as far as content, Austin’s is stronger by leaps and bounds. So much great stuff over a long period of time vs. a PPV. No contest.
I’ll just go ahead and put it out there. Here is how my voting went:
Raw 20th Anniversary
Hart & Soul
Mick Foley: Greatest Hits and Misses
Raw: 15th Anniversary
Hulk Hogan: Ultimate Anthology
Best of Saturday Night’s Main Event
You Think You Know Me
Shawn Michaels: Heartbreak & Triumph
ECW One Night Stand 2005
Best of WCW Clash of Champions
Money In the Bank Anthology
Breaking the Code
Rise + Fall of ECW
Edge: A Decade of Decadence
Austin: Bottom Line
For All Mankind
Best of Nitro
Best of Starrcade
NWO: Back In Black
Thy Kingdom Come
Rise and Fall of WCW
Bret Hart: The Best There Is…
History of WWE
Bret vs. Shawn
Some of them were just way too hard to pick! How did Piper’s set get beat out by Hart and Soul? If these pairings were anything but random this would have been much easier to call, but then again it would take a lot of fun away from it also. My big surprises would be Hogan Ultimate Anthology beating out Best of Raw seasons 1 and 2, and Undertaker’s the Streak four disc set dropping to Raw’s 15th anniversary. And, how does one choose between SC the Bottom Line 4 disc set and ECW Bloodsport? I am having a blast picking these!
The Austin set vs. ECW Bloodsport is tough for you, but to me, it was just a matter of looking at them. Personally, I’ve never been a big ECW fan. The Austin set had so much great stuff with it, and what the ECW set offered, to me wasn’t a big deal. Austin won my vote in one of the biggest ‘squash’ matches of this round. Lol!
I voted for Raw over the Streak because the Raw DVD had much better matches, where the ‘Taker DVD had a quick doc and a lot of matches I’d rather not remember. Add in nostalgia, and Raw’s offerings were much stronger than the Streak.
I was really surprised to see the Rise and Fall of WCW beat The Legacy of Stone Cold Steve Austin!
me too.. WCW set was good, but beating Stone Cold multiple set caught me kind of guard.. I do not think Legacy is as good as Bottom line, but hey..it’s Stone Cold.. lol
Ya know?! I liked the WCW DVD, and it had the potential to be a great DVD. But the way WWE decided to work it, it was just another DVD set. With all of the “Attitude Era” fans, I’m pretty shocked that this Austin set was shot down so early.
although longer than shocking short Starcade doc., I really had liked the Rise and Fall of WCW doc to be just as long as ECW doc. There were some parts that were really fast run through. Did WWE take a bit of bias angle?..of course..they won that war, and rightfully so, cos they had the overall best product andthey had Vince McM.
Yeah, there was so much more to the history of WCW than there was to ECW, but ECW got almost triple the doc time. That still doesn’t make sense to me.
There is a distinct lack of respect for The Undertaker in the voting
Not so much a lack of respect as much as how the bracketing played into everything. Here are my thought process with voting on his DVD pairings:
His “Deadliest matches” DVD was NOT a strong set, and it went against the “50 Greatest Superstars” DVD. Which was the stronger of the two weakest DVDs? “50 Greatest” generated a lot more buzz, had a much stronger match line-up, and, for what it was, it had a great little feature.
“The Streak” vs. “Raw: 15th Anniversary” was going to be another tough one for ‘Taker. His set only had the strength of a couple of really great, off-the-charts, but recent matches. The Raw set had a stronger match listing, plus nostalgia working for it.
“Tombstone” I thought was his strongest DVD. The only issue was that it was put up against the Starrcade DVD. Those WCW DVDs for some reason get a lot of love. It was his best shot, but if it had been paired against something else (maybe the “Smackdown 10th Anniversary” set), it could’ve had a better shot at making it to the next round.
Remember, it’s not about the guy, it’s about the content.
At first glance, I was surprised to see Bret Hart’s “Dungeon Collection” was shot down. Then I looked to see what it lost out to, and when I saw it lost to “Saturday Night’s Main Event”, I felt a little better about that one.
It would be really interesting to hear some people’s thought process behind their voting.
We are voting on which dvd is the best not which wrestler is the best.
Hardest pick out of Round 2 by far was The Attitude Era Vs The Best of WCW Monday Nitro took me about 10 min to finally decide.
To me, it was Monday Nitro, no question. I’m probably in the minority, but the Attitude Era DVD was a BIG disappointment to me. The Nitro DVD had an easy edge with the match line-up, and while it didn’t have a documentary feature, I thought the “Attitude Era” documentary was horrible.
Monday Nitro got my vote on that one.
Damn some of those were tough as hell to choose between.
Firstly, the tourney is tough. The dvd’s afe subjective, so what i really liked, twenty others may not. from the vault was weak in my eyes and the flair definitive collection strong, or at least a far cry better than the ultimate release a few years prior to that. Secondly, does the wcw ppv dvd have ventura cut from commentary? why include ventura on the network and not the dvd. I understand one is sold and one is vod, but still. that would suck.
I agree.. find the Flair doc. very interesting and far better than Michaels The Vault…
but.. imo Flair release has no chance in hell agains the ECW Rise and Fall.. till this day it is still at least a top 3 WWE Dvd release, and maybe the best documentary they have produced. It is cruel this tournament, but I have to pick ECW over one of the all time ever best wrestler and performer, simply because of the complete in-deep well produced doc. of Extreme.
See, and I thought Shawn’s From the Vault set was GREAT, and Flair’s Ultimate release was better than his “Definitive Collection”. The Ultimate Collection set was one of the biggest selling DVDs they did, and it sold out practically everywhere. I’ve been taking that sort of thing into account too when it comes to voting.
Flair vs. Rise + Fall of ECW? Flair doesn’t stand a chance. The Ultimate Collection was great, but it didn’t spawn the PPVs and ECW re-launch that their DVD did.
Great trailer, really like the cover too.
I don’t see how the Ric Flair Definitive Collection beat Shawn Michaels From The Vault. I really thought that Flair release was poor.
Stone Cold Bottom Line vs ECW Bloodiest matches: it is’nt fair…it’s just is’nt fair! 🙁
The cruelty of random’nes! after 5 minutes of pain full thinking I chose The Rattlesnake.
Great concept again.. 🙂
See, and I didn’t even think about it. I’ve never been a big ECW fan, whether back in the day or now. To me, I saw the match-up, and it was a no-brainer for me. Austin got my vote easily.
It’s not fair! Two of the best DVD out there.
Very great job with this tournament! I love your website!
lol love that Back to the Future gimmick logo! makes me wanna dust of my Marty McFly boxset tonight! 😉 that is.. after I finished the next march mania picks.. uuuuuh.. excited! 🙂
