So many good sets coming out!! Just got the NWO set and I love it. Can’t wait for Bret Hart Unreleased, Best of Nitro 2, and Attitude era Blu Rays!
They should include some WCW footage of Stacy and Torrie this time. Infact throw some Madusa in the mix too!
Best of WCW Nitro part 2:
YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!
I don’t think you will ever see a Chris Benoit release ever because of what happen
the first Nitro set was okay but could’ve been better. i’m curious how volume 2 will out do the first set.
i’d like to see a Legacy of Chris Benoit set since WWE did one for Eddie Guerrero a few years back.
What legacy?!? Benoit trashed his own legacy…WWE will NEVER promote anything that involves Benoit…just accept that, they will never release a DVD on Benoit…you might as well just pick up Hard Knocks.
wwe promoted Benoit on the first Nitro dvd and the previous Triple H dvd.
and would u being a wwe nuthugger like everything they do, they do right because they don’t.
This is whats wrong with dumbass internet wrestling fans today…just because someone supports WWE they’re automatically a “WWE nuthugger” or “fanboy” as smarks call it.
It seems like internet fans hate WWE and bash everything they do and its FORBIDDEN for someone like myself to like current WWE without being called a “Cena fanboy” or “kissing McMahon’s ass”
WWE is the biggest wrestling company in the world…they must be doing something right. If they were wrong all the time, they would have ended up like WCW and ECW.
Yes DAVE, sucks ups like yourself are whats wrong with wrestling these days.
First off, how is it sucking up if i support WWE?!? I’ve been watching WWE for 30 years…how long have you been?! 5 years? 10 years?! or are you those idiots that think WWE only existed in the Attitude era?
You’re not cool just because you and many others think its the cool thing to hate current WWE and bash it, yet continue to watch just so they can bitch and moan like children because things don’t go their way.
And just for the record, what Benoit did nullifies what he accomplished in his career…Nobody, and i mean NOBODY besides idiots like you will remember Benoit’s career, only how he killed his wife, son and himself.
You’re probably the same group of people that support pedophiles and criminals just because you can “distinguish” between what they did and who they are. What a joke!
haha look at this guy calling people dumb asses on the net. Lonely boy acting tough on thenet. Dave i have 2 questions… wheres the match listing and what about the EU release? Please tell me.
Being included briefly and being used to promote a set aren’t exactly the same. WWE will never use Benoit’s name or likeness to promote any DVD set. I also feel we will never see a one-on-one Benoit match included on a ‘best of’ release. However he will be included where absolutely necessary from a historic standpoint (as Vince himself has stated), but I feel most history which includes him will be ignored. (And rightly so IMO)
Dave is right, Benoit put a black eye on wrestling and I do not blame the WWF for not putting any footage of Chris Benoit in any DVD
thats too bad because your opinion dont mean squat to me. unlike you and dave, i can seperate Benoit from what he did to who he was in the ring; an excellent ring technician. only u jubos see him on what he did on his final days.
benoit was an awesome wrestler and deserves his own dvd set. he’s better than the entire PG roster today.
I have just been watching the Horsemen return segment on the Nitro DVD and contrary to what a lot of people say Benoit was not promoted on the DVD. He was included because it would have harmed the rest of an otherwise good story to have taken it out. The part where Arn Anderson lays praise on Benoit, Malenko and Mongo however, was edited out. Mentioning his name is not promoting him, its just almost unavoidable in in some situations where you are telling another story.
I really have to agree with Dave here. Even if you were going to profile Benoit the last thing you would call is it the ‘legacy’ for obvious reasons. If I said I could separate Jimmy Saville or Gary Glitter from being a paedophile most people would think I was a fucking idiot or at least very fucking sinister. The same principle applies and Benoit (who I used to love by the way) is best forgotten about. Right or wrong, brain injuries or not, its best not to feature the man unless they have to. Your own moral compass should tell you that.
Nothing personal, but this is clearly a divisive subject. I’m not launching a personal beef with anyone. But to me there is no two ways about this one.
The Benoit thing is touchy but if anyone did the research.. They would come to the conclusion that his brain was so smashed up that he was almost mentally disabled. Nowinskys institute has already proved this. Funny thing.. when they were proving this WWE fired him. Now they support his institute
I’m aware of that and I did mention the brain injuries. But that certainly shouldn’t alter the WWE’s stance on it. They cannot condone it in any way, regardless of his mental state. I’m sure a lot of psychopathic killers are mentally ill, but that doesn’t mean it gets passed over. Its a very dangerous precedent we’d be setting if we did that. Yes, you could say the brain damage makes him less morally culpable and the real Chris Benoit would never have done that. But even if he’s a great guy that was very unlucky in that sense, you still can’t expect them to go anywhere near it. No one really seems to spare a thought for the victims. They just wonder why said match is missing from their DVD list.
I’ll stop with this now because its a debate that can go on forever and nothing is ever going to be settled on here. And we should possibly focus more on the WWE DVD positives, of which there are many. I’d buy a Nitro volume 2 DVD straight away, for example.
Well Vol.3 will get done if sales for Vol.2 do really well. It’s too bad this wasn’t released in the SD days. Now, every content that was originally pre-HD is cropped. It’s not all that big of a deal really. But I do tend to find it a bit distracting sometimes. I don’t see why they can’t have that stuff in SD. It’d be nice if they had the fans to get in on this and tell them what we want to see since we’re the ones buying it. I say that because they did seem to miss a lot of stuff in Vol.1. Hope future sets won’t miss anything.
Hope Vol.2 does very well. It would be nice of they released Best of Volumes for RAW & Smackdown.
By the way, with WCW sets doing so good, I wonder why they haven’t released a documentary set on Goldberg as he was one of the top stars there. I don’t think his current work schedule with whatever he’s doing would prevent him from being involved in the set. Sting’s inevitable obviously. But they should save that for when he’s available to be involved in the project.
Goldberg is supposed to have a DVD June 25, 2013 according to this site but plans can change.
Actually the pre-HD footage is not cropped…thats why they have the sidebars, its intended to have the full unaltered picture in 4:3 to display correctly in 16:9 so its not stretched and look like crap.
Now that WWE films in HD and release on Blu-ray…all SD content will display with sidebars.
Also if they used film (example being WM review packages in the end) they would be able to display in 16:9 without sidebars…but if they recorded on tape (practically all events til they went HD in 2008 and all WCW and ECW footage) then WWE can’t do anything with the picture. To satisfy widescreen tvs without stretching they would have to use sidebars.
I am excited for the Nitro Volume 2 set!
I’ll pass on the Nitro I didn’t really like the first one at all .I wish instead of this they would release the best of WCW ppv instead .
Awesome…..wonder just how many Nitro volumes there will end up being…..maybe a volume 3 in 2015?
I sure hope so. There is SO much to cover. Thats why it is so important for everyone even remotely interested to buy this thing. We could get Vol.3 as soon as late 2014.
wish we in the UK get those sets, thought they was gonna do a Vol 2 on Nitro
Can anyone make out the price on that WM23/Undertaker set?
At my local Walmart, they go for about $10.
Great News. And in late 2013 please Best of Thunder or better Best of Saturday Night. PLEASE WWE !
The Best Of SNME came out about 3 years ago
I think he was referring to WCW Saturday Night, which aired for years on TBS.
Looking forward to the Nitro and Bret Hart DVD’s. A good start to 2013.
I would like to see best of Thunder and Saturday Night as much as anyone, but lets face it, WWE is not going to do something like that. A better option would be something like WCW Unreleased which focuses heavily on those two shows and PPVs. We already got Nitro and the Clash, so that is covered, but those two shows and PPVs have pretty much gone untouched other than the nWo DVD which mostly has PPV extras. Actually, I think WCW Unreleased is a pretty strong possibility, eventually.
Im hoping wwe doesnt put too much rock vs. cena build on the best of raw/sd 2012 considering they have their own dvd fill ed with that. Im looking forward to Nitro vol.2 and 2013 for that matter, looks like an awesome year ahead for wwe dvds
I really hope Macho Man vs La ddParka is on there.
DDP has actually confirmed that it is.
Finally! That is one of my favorite moments in wrestling history.
I know this is a longshot, but is it possible the match listing could come any day now for Best of Nitro Vol.2? The first volume saw the match listing 3 months in a advance. I know what happened with Silvervision and all, but aren’t there any other sources out there? I assume if DDP has already filmed his parts then the listings have been chosen. I suppose, though, if we haven’t already heard about the Attitude Era listings then the listings for Best of Nitro Vol.2 won’t exactly be out next week. I’m just so excited about it that I wish they would be.
Good news! Can’t wait for Nitro!
