    I just got the summerslam classic matches DVD. They dug through the garbage to get it because they are throwing them all away.

  2. LP1 says:

    WWE.com posted an article yesterday called “The Epic History Of WWE”. If you’re wondering what to expect on the upcoming DVD, then this article basically covers it. The scariest part of the whole thing is this line from the article:

    “The greatest story ever told? We think the chronicle of WWE’s evolution ranks way up there.

    It begins with Mr. McMahon’s purchase of his father’s business in 1982, and ends … well, there’s really no telling.”

    Wow! I was worried about whether or not they were going to cover the first 10 years of WWE from January 1953 – January 1963. Forget that. It sounds like they’re just gonna give a very brief synopsis of everything prior to 1982 and then go from there. Unbelievable. They should rename it “Half Of The History Of WWE”. Smh

  3. Dalton grimm says:

    Sorry but if you pay 250 for a dvd thats pathetic

  4. Dinner Dog says:

    i have a feeling the History of WWE will just be a cheap way to make ca$h

  5. Justin McDonald says:

    I got RAW homecoming and Vengeance 2004 for a Ravens skull cap

  6. Jamyn Blanton says:

    I might try to get some free Summerslam DVDs

  7. RCS1988 says:

    Interesting news. I wonder if WWE will have a DVD survey on the internet for this year.

  8. Mr Z says:

    Raw Homecoming was a big show. I don’t have the DVD but off the top of my head I know it had a WWE title match, Triple H returning and then turning on Flair, of course a 30 minute HBK vs Angle match, and a Matt/Edge Ladder Match. I wonder if it will be one of the full episodes in the Raw 20th Anniversary set. I’d hate to pay $250 now and have the show re-released later this year.

    • David says:

      Have a feeling they will include it on the 20th anniversary set, but it will likely be edited – the JBL/Christian/Eddie vs. Benoit/Mysterio/Batista match will probably be removed, even though it was more of a segment than a match.

      • Daniel Bee says:

        It seems like WWE are making a point to say ‘uncut and uncensored’ with this box set so hopefully no removals like that. Gives the worry that they will just avoid shows with Benoit altogether to stay true to that.

  9. Mr Disc says:

    It would be awesome to see Fremantle do some offers like the “Wild Wednesday” deals Silvervision used to have. I do purchase from Fremantle but they never do any one off deals from time to time.

  10. Mr Disc says:

    I think it’s funny how people go mad for this Homecoming DVD. It was on the Silvervision site in the UK for £13.99 right until about 2 months before they closed down. It never went out of stock once. People must’ve snapped it up in the buy 2 get 1 free deal they had.

    • Daniel Bee says:

      It’s different though. The Region 2 version like you say was never pulled from sale/production in the UK but for Region 1 it didn’t last long and to my knowledge was only in a double pack with WM20 that wasn’t on shelves for long.

      • David says:

        Yea, the region 1 version was packaged with the 3 Disc slim-line WM20 and from what i recall was only on the shelf for about couple weeks late-2006 (sometime when the Hogan Anthology came out). Not sure why it was pulled, probably just a limited time deal.

        I bought a copy early-2007 from ebay when a seller had about 10 brand new copies for $10 each and they were sold quick. Glad i bought one then, but i wish i bought another…never expected this to be rare – same with Judgment Day 2002 and Vengeance 2002.

        But i wouldn’t be surprised if WWE included the Homecoming episode on the 20th Anniversary set.
