    I’m hoping for both Rhyno vs Raven from Backlash 01 and th Snow vs Road Dogg from Raw all those years ago. Maybe some of Crash’s short 34/7 skits too.

  2. Anan says:

    I don’t really understand the desire to see the upset match. Are people desiring that much to see Taker lose? Do they hate Taker that much? Are they tired tired of seeing him win?

    That aside, I’m very pleased to see that one of the best WM matches in Kane’s career, the triple threat from WM17, which has probably been his best WM match aside froM WM14 (WM18 vs Kurt Angle was good too, but had barely any build to it and was a quickly thrown together match.) Also glad to see Taker vs RVD from Vengeance is on here alongside pretty much taker’s entire Hardcore Title run excluding his match vs Spike Dudley on RAW where Taker chokeslammed Spike from inside the ring onto the outside on top of a trash can. No major loss there though. He may have had a Hardcore Title defense against Matt Hardy that as far as we know is missing too. But as far as hardcore goes, Jeff’s been the better Hardy and his match with taker is on here so…

  3. Jeff Copeland says:

    DAMN!!!! :O !!!! thats alot of HARDCORE DEADMAN!!!! aka YOU WILL RESPECT THE UNDERTAKER!!! 😀 xD!!!!

    ok i now i am impressed come on some bossman and blackman 🙂

    • Anan says:

      “DAMN!!!! :O !!!! thats alot of HARDCORE DEADMAN!!!! aka YOU WILL RESPECT THE UNDERTAKER!!! xD!!!!”

      DAMN!!!! That’s a hell of a great line!!!!

  4. me says:

    Just as I predicted they fill up the set with Undertaker matches to compensate for showing him losing to Maven. Fortunately they did actually show the match.

  5. Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Life says:

    Bet the Undertaker is more about continue to destroy Maven for causing the early exit of the Deadman in the Rumble, than the Hardcore Championship belt. 😉

    I am already listing this release as one of my absolute favorites: Along with for example the OMG releases, this is far more entertaining than the Reality/Twitter-era we’re stuck in.

  6. Patrick McNamara says:

    Yes the upset I want to see is going to be on there. Getting more and more excited about this release. Getting the US championship dvd set Friday or within the next week. Looking forward to adding that and this to my collection. WWE keep it up Im getting excited for this one. Looking forward to the Eric Bischoff release and Scott Hall release as well gotta add those to my collection as well.

  7. John Peterson says:

    Also hoping for RVD vs Jeff Hardy from Invasion.Awesome match.

    • Anan says:

      Oh yeah. Hopefully that makes the cut. I enjoyed that match, but thought their Hardcore Championship Ladder match a month later at Summerslam was better and believe that even though it’s probably been on other sets, deserves to be on here also.

  8. Brad Attitude says:

    Hopefully Rhyno vs Raven makes it onto this set in the coming days!

  9. Eric says:

    I loved when Taker was the hardcore champion. You would either respect him or he would beat it out of you.

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      has the undertaker would say = ARE YOU DISSRESPECTING ME!!!! >.:( YOU WILL RESPECT THE UNDERTAKER!!! xD!!!

  10. Mongoose Wizard says:

    Yes!!! The X Seven match made the cut! 🙂

  11. Frank Lloyd says:

    Set gets better and better by the day, can’t wait!

  12. Indyfan says:

    Awesome!!!! I wish WWE released a best if Tajiri set. Guy is so underrated. Happy to see the Vengeance match on this.
