    I just bought the original here comes the pain. I probably won’t buy the collectors set if it has repeats from the original. I haven’t watched the original yet because I just ordered it online.

  2. Ben says:

    It’s a real shame they didn’t put Lesnar’s match against Benoit on SmackDown in December of ’03. For obvious reasons, I know but still. The match was good and the first time he used his “Brock Lock” move, I believe.

  3. Anonymous says:

    I love to disseminate information that I’ve built up through the calendar year to assist improve team efficiency.

  4. Chewie says:

    Ummm!!! So you’re saying they didn’t put the Brock Lesnar vs Eddie Guerrero matches on here. That’s all it’s missing.

  5. John says:

    I also have the original DVD which only have 5 matches, the added matches had me sold! Pre-ordered! 🙂

  6. Anonymous says:

    i don’t know way they put his king of the ring finals match against rob van dam it was already on the best king of the ring and i would traded it for his 2002 vengence against rob van dam.

    • Brad Attitude says:

      thats like saying why did wwe added stone cold’s king of the ring vs. jake roberts onto Austin’s dvd …. they added it because it was the first major stepping stone brock took to becoming the big star he became … why would u wanna see his vengeance 2002 match when he got DQed?

  7. Mongoose Wizard says:

    I remember reading this saying I’m not gonna buy this if it’s a repeat of the old Lesner DVD but when I heard theres gonna be some added stuff it caught my intrest. Now that I read the full content, I’m definately gonna buy this set! The DVD I picked up before I remember saying alot was missing well this set just settled my previous complaint 🙂

  8. james says:

    Wow, very pleasently surprised with this. There’s really nothing missing, surprised they even included the Iron Man match. I have the original DVD, but there’s enough new stuff to make this a buy for me. Thumbs way up!

  9. nightmare says:

    Never saw the Goldberg/Lesnar match it was really that bad I figured since there both over hyped it would have been good wow .

  10. X-23 says:

    Goldberg/Lesnar was an awful match! That would be a sour ending to the DVD.

    I really liked the Stretcher match between Brock and Big Show at Judgment Day 2003. It was fun

    Lesnar also faced Edge in a UK PPV. Might as well include that too

  11. nightmare says:

    The more I put this down the more I am now likely to buy it on blu ray maybe
    I mean the most goriest match I feel felt done next to Cena and JBL in the I quit match but nothing could top

    Hell in a Cell Match for the WWE Championship
    Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar
    No Mercy 20th October, 2002

    This match right here was suppose to be bloody but nothing like it was ,For those of you have never seen it you need to but be warned this match is not for kids .

    There is no way in the world that Vince would let this happen today and to be honest that what I feel is killing the WWE .I am not saying that ever match needs to be like this no .

    No match should be this gory but to have blood is something that should be allowed in certain matches like Hell In The cell ,Last Man Standing .or any match that has no rules like Street Fights and so on. To have a referee stop matches that have blood in them really tick me off .

    • Brad Attitude says:

      I think Eddie Guerrero vs JBL match was more gory than Cena vs. JBL. Guerrero basically stained half the ring with blood and wouldn’t stop dripping with blood even during and after the match was over …

      Undertaker blading the way he did for Lesnar was a good way to help him get to the main event but dishing out the punishment he did but Guerrero bleeding the way he did he went bit too deep.

      • SRB says:

        I was at the JBL/Guerrero match and it was for sure the bloodiest match of all time. The blood sprayed all over the arena and into my teeth as well

        • mommy says:

          what about the first ever hell in a cell, or steve corino’s ecw matches

        • indyfan says:

          You need to watch Jay Briscoe vs Samoa Joe Cage match from ROH: At Our Best. THat match kills Eddie vs JBL as far as blood shed goes. Jays blood was clotting and falling off his face like flesh.

  12. The Fever says:

    Defs gonna pick this one up. Was a wit wary of the match listings, just because I’ve got the entire 2003 PPV Collection and he was only in the WWE 2002-2004 so yeh. Real pleased with the 2nd discs offering of matches and stoked to see the 60-minute Iron Man match with Kurt Angle on there, that was an incredible match and my favorite type of match anyways, classic!

  13. Jesus Lopez says:

    This set looks solid. I think it gives an overall stronger definition of the impact that Brock Lesnar had since his arrival in 2002. I appreciate the fact that WWE has dug deep into the achieves into producing a more comprehensive set for Lesnar. This set is definitely worth a second look. Great job, WWE.

  14. Brad Attitude says:

    Well I’m sold on this set and will definetly pick up the blu-ray set … I would’ve liked to have seen Lesnar vs. Kurt Angle from SummerSlam 2003 & the Biker Chain Match vs Undertaker at No Mercy 2003 over the Unforgiven 2002 and WrestleMania XX matches. Other than that, I can’t wait to pick up this baby!

  15. F*** says:

    well here comes the pain!

  16. Anonymous says:

    Looks awesome. Definitely going to shell out some extra cash for the Blu-Ray.

  17. Thomas Goodearl says:

    Why is the awful Goldberg match on it? Lol

    • Tony Kegger says:

      The Goldberg match is still a match people may want to see just because of how much it’s talked about. I think this may be the first time it has been released other than WrestleMania DVDs.

  18. rohfan says:

    major pass,i was gonna get it for the iron man match but now nah im just gonna get the greatest stars of the 21st century dvd for that match and why is the cena lesnar match on the bluray theres no recent matches on the dvd lousy set if you ask me

  19. John Peterson says:

    Solid set.i would have traded the rvd/Brock kotr match for their vengeance 02 match and trade goldberg vs lesnar for Brock’s match with Eddie Guerrero.but looking forward to seeing the hiac match and the extreme rules match with cena on Blu ray

  20. I was really hoping they would put the match with Zach Gowen on there, that was gold! I would even be happy with the promo where Brock threw Gowen down the stairs.

  21. TBG says:

    I was seriously considering passing on this, but then I remembered that the only thing I buy DVDs for is the matches anyway so even with the repeated documentary there was hope.

    I couldn’t have asked for a much better line-up (it was possible, but not by much). I’m thrilled to be getting these in DVD quality:

    Brock Lesnar vs. Leviathan — Ohio Valley Wrestling 28th September, 2001

    Rico & Cena vs. The Minnesota Stretching Crew — Ohio Valley Wrestling 10th November, 2001

    Brock Lesnar vs. ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair — Raw 1st July, 2002

    Rob Van Dam & ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair vs. Undertaker & Brock Lesnar — Raw 15th July, 2002

    EXCELLENT match selection makes a release I was thinking to pass on a MUST BUY!

  22. Mr Z says:

    They just had to include the Mr. America six man on the blu ray. I’m a huge Hogan fan. Already have the one on one match with Lesnar, but may have to pick this up too for that six man. That was Hogan’s last match until the 2005 comeback.

  23. Steve says:

    There was a great match between Lesnar and Benoit from Smackdown in 2003…aw never mind.

    • TBG says:

      I just wish they’d get over the Benoit thing as most people and all media seems to have. I mean, I don’t think they should advertise his matches on the boxes, but they could and should still release some of his finer matches. The Austin set not having a Benoit match was a crime. At least with the scratch logo there was a legal reason to leave off Benoit. This is just McMahon being stubborn.

      • TBG says:

        I MEANT:
        At least with the scratch logo there was a legal reason to edit that. Leaving Benoit off DVD releases just seems like McMahon is being stubborn.

        • Mark D says:

          Really? I don’t think it is a case of Vince McMahon being “stubborn”, I think it is simply a case of WWE wanting to distance themselves from a murderer. 

          Was he a good wrestler, yes – however he ruined his legacy in the span of a weekend when he murdered his wife and 7 year old son. 

          I really cannot blame WWE for not wanting to celebrate or glamourise Chris Benoit by including any of his matches on a ‘best of’ set. He delivered the biggest black eye to the wrestling business; one which could be argued that it still hasn’t fully recovered from.

          • jasongoldsmith says:

            agreed that what benoit done was as wrong as it gets and i do not blame WWE for not wanting to be associated with that.
            that said i still have many of his matches on dvd as still watch them because i can separate his matches from what he did for reasons we will never know im sure.
            i just cannot understand why people (not saying wrestling fans) from the media are so quick to blame the wrestling industry for what benoit did–if you can do that then why not blame football for what oj allegedly did or baseball for what donnie moore done?
            lots of wrestlers have done steroids over the years and none have killed a whole family like that and it burns me up when i hear people that never were wrestling fans blame the whole business for it.

            • TBG says:

              No one in the media cares at all about Benoit anymore.

              If WWE wanted to put a Benoit match on every DVD they released for the next 20 years, there’d never be a mention of it anywhere.

              It’s also worth noting that in Japan, a country that’s considered more respectful and subdued, they’ve never stopped showing Benoit. He’s aired continuously since the murders on their New Japan Classics shows.

              Again, McMahon made a knee-jerk decision as a means to overcompensate for the horrible blunder of airing a 3-hour Monday Night Raw tribute. More than five years have passed. It’s time to once again start including Benoit in complete programs.

              • Vincenzzzzzo says:

                TBG, wether you agree or disagree with WWE’s way of handling the Benoit incident, thats not for you to decide. At the end of the day it is McMahon’s decision to leave him off of DVD releases and such, not yours. It’s his company, not yours. Maybe one day if you own and operate your own publicly traded company, you’ll have a clearer opinion on reality.

                Until then, keep watching New Japan Classics on TV. Maybe thats one of the reasons New Japan Pro Wrestling isn’t as important as it used to be?

                • TBG says:

                  This is a message board where we are free to voice our opinions. That’s what I was doing. You’re right, McMahon has the right to run the company the way he sees fit, however, he also has to take into account the views of his buying public, of which I am a part of. Therefore, I have a right to speak and hopefully be heard.

                  With that said, how is it appropriate for you to tell me that I can’t judge a public company’s stance, however, you can criticize a private person’s opinion and judge it as being unclear?

                  And, if anyone’s perspective of reality is unclear, I’d say it’s probably yours considering you think Chris Benoit has made NJPW less important. I realize you think that anything WWE does is correct and you continuously use this board as a forum to rag on those who offer a slightly different perspective, but that doesn’t make you any more enlightened than the rest of us. In fact, most would argue that makes you much less so, and certainly anything you’ve ever posted has to be taken with buckets and buckets worth of salt.

                • TBG says:

                  Be sure to contact Paramount and History network regarding Benoit. Surely, knowing that a lesser company like WWE has chosen to remove a known killer from their product, that must be the correct way to handle footage and therefore there’s no doubt they’ll immediately cut out Hitler from their presentations and OJ’s scenes from the Naked Gun series.

        • Harry Faversham says:

          So you DON’T think there’s a good reason to leave him off? Oh my. You not watching your favourite telly isn’t actually a crime, but strangely enough a double murder is. The f***ing justice system is just being really ‘stubborn’ about things like that too. I honestly cannot believe people take this attitude. Its f***ed up!

          • WWEATTITUDEERA says:

            I understand where Mark D and Harry F are coming from but still to this date i dont believe what happend and what Chris Benoit did there is much more to it, your entitled to your opinions and you can believe what you want but where you there when it happened and saw it with your own eyes eh No, im not saying he didn’t do what he did, maybe he did Only God knows, but if he did do it then in no way in any form does he deserve to get a breath of mention from WWE or be promoted or be in WWE projects or dvds, but whatever happened we are not the ones to judge and jump to conclusions, please do not come up with their is evidence because Media and Police can get it wrong and maybe they want the easy conclusion and blame it on steroids and make it look like murder!!
            Remba this is my own opinion so please do not start shouting off!!

            • TBG says:

              Every day in life we have a choice to do what’s right or wrong. Benoit made two terrible choices. Does that mean that he never existed? Does that mean he should be erased? NO. Just including him on a DVD doesn’t glamourize him! Don’t fall for that line of thinking. That’s as though saying that somehow because he was a WWE wrestler he was better than the rest of us.

              Glamourizing him, or better stated, promoting him, is nothing WWE should do. With that said, when you consider that Benoit was only a fraction of any given match that he was in, I say his content (minus his solo interviews) should all be included in any complete shows they release or show from this day forward. If they want to leave him off this type of release, I suppose that’s fine as you can tell the Brock Lesnar story just as well without Benoit.

              The fact is, it’s been more that 5 years! Even Hitler continuously runs on TV and OJ Simpson movies continue to air with his portions included.

              Get out of the glass bubble known as the WWE and you’ll realize that the way they’re handling this situation is very unique and clearly because of a directive detailed by an overcompensating McMahon the day after he actually praised Benoit on a 3-hour Raw tribute show.

              • jasongoldsmith says:

                @TBG–thank you–thats the point i was trying to reach
                just to act as if he didnt exist is wrong and i wouldnt advocate a whole set to benoit or anything but a match with him in it like they did for the elimination chamber anthology isnt wrong either.

                but i did see plenty of interviews where the interviewer was blaming wrestling as a whole for it and putting my feelings toward wrestling aside that is wrong to do as it would be wrong to blame football for rae carruth or baseball for donnie moore but for whatever reason some media members have always tried to give wrestling any black eye they can.

                • TBG says:

                  Some in the media do hate wrestling. They hated it long before Chris Benoit and will always hate it.

                  Benoit being on a DVD won’t change anything and will never have any impact.

                  For proof, all you need to do is look at how WWE has re-released PPV events under the Tagged Classics banner and there’s been nothing said about it anywhere. Furthermore, walk into any FYE and you’ll be able to find DVDs with Benoit matches. Now, if the media was going to raise a stink, this would be all the ammunition they need. But, they won’t. Why? Because they realize that companies are in business to make money or else they cease to exist. Benoit is a piece of WWE’s intellectual property. As long as WWE doesn’t do something stupid and promote Benoit as the focal point of a release, there will NEVER be any backlash whatsoever.

                  • jasongoldsmith says:

                    oh yeah–20/20 with john stossel? done to make wrestling look terrible.
                    they want to blast wrestling for being “fake” but bobby heenan said it best when he said “we never told the fans it was real”.
                    its all just like any tv show that the people that think they are above watching wrestling get tied up in but dont try to explain to them that it is the same idea.

                  • Harry Faversham says:

                    The Tagged Classics from Silver Vision have to be unaltered because they are re-releases to replace the ones wiped out by the WWF’s breach of their contract with the other WWF. They were an innocent third party affected by the breach of contract so they can reissue them as they origianally were but with aletrations to the packaging. That’s why Benoit is included. But I agree that the events would be incomplete without all the matches. But its a whole different thing to select a match of his to showcase. That’s when the moral issue comes in and that’s where I disagree. To me it doesn’t matter how much media attention there is, or how long ago it was. That doesn’t alter the moral issue. And your own moral compass should tell you that its wrong to include a murderer (even if he was mentally ill, it cannot be condoned). If you pass it over and say it does not matter, then the message your sending is a dangerous one. For once Vince McMahon does the right thing but gets criticised for it. Including him does not necessarily glamourise him as such, but it suggests that the issue doesn’t matter and it DOES. Not including doesn’t erase him either. It just means there are no new presentations featuring him. So your way of looking at things seems a bit skewed to me. I stick by my original comment. It’s f***ed up!

                    • jasongoldsmith says:

                      by that reasoning we should ban any mention of hitler from history books and ban all books that people buy up to read on guys like john wayne gacy or charles manson.
                      scott hall said he killed a man when he was younger so should he be excluded from all dvd releases?
                      benoits actions were reprehensible and can never be condoned but showing a match he is in for historical purposes–ie the great triple threat match at WM20–does not glorify what he done but IMO is showing people that werent fans of the time good wrestling the same as having a match with scott hall (who killed someone by his own admission) in it on a dvd or verne gagne (who also killed someone) on a dvd.
                      i know the obvious argument that verne gagne had alzheimers and wasnt in his right mind but what is to say benoit was either?
                      murder is murder and if one killer is deleted from history they all should be.

                    • TBG says:

                      McMahon’s own commments regarding Benoit:
                      “It’s not right to pretend he didn’t exist,” he said when asked whether Benoit’s history can be acknowledged by WWE. “It’s one thing to include him as part of a historical perspective, which I believe is okay, and it’s another thing to promote him, which is not okay.

                      “The situation is very similar to that of O.J. Simpson—despite his controversy, O.J. was still a part of the NFL scene. You can’t deny that he existed.”

                      Furthermore, Jimmy Snuka has also been accused of being a murderer, yet the story goes that McMahon helped him get off and now considers him one of the company’s great legends. What about the moral compass there? What about Verne Gagne? Just because the WWE does something doesn’t mean they can’t and shouldn’t change it. It also doesn’t mean that it’s right.

                    • jasongoldsmith says:

                      I forgot all about jimmy snuka but yes another case there and then the way society likes to use the slippery slope argument–what if wwe does erase benoit,snuka,hall and gagne for killing someone then does it stop with murder?
                      what do they do if a wrestler is accused of other heinous crimes like drug dealing or sexual crimes? do they delete them as well?
                      other uncondonable crimes so they delete them then what? do they delete any wrestlers convicted of a crime at all?

  24. Scott says:

    Gotta say, I’m impressed. I have the orginal DVD but this is a helluva collection. Added to my Amazon wish list!

  25. mommy says:

    2 questions

    -what is on the “here comes the pain” original thats not on this one
    -what matches on this set have been released before not counting the original ppv dvd of it

    • The only match not featured here vs. the original DVD is a Stretcher Match for the WWE Championship between Brock Lesnar & the Big Show from Judgment Day 2003. Also the extras from the original DVD aren’t present, either.

      *Error from WWE, they said the match was on SmackDown (8/15/2002) when on that show, Lesnar defeated Rikishi

    • Undertaker, sorry about the error

    • forgot the ‘/’ after the last match

      Why’ve they bothered mentioning that it was Interpromotional? I don’t recall that being hyped as the selling point at the time. Just the fact that it was Goldberg vs. Brock was enough.

    • Archangel says:

      I think they included that match because it was his last match in WWE.

    • Harry Faversham says:

      I was looking for that one too but I think they must have skipped it because Brock tapped out to Angle.

      • Harry Faversham says:

        Then again he got booed, jackhammered and stunnered at Wrestlemania XX and that made the list. I suppose that was a significant part of Brock’s story and I don’t hate the match as many seem to. I’m glad its on there, but surprised, especially as that will be the ending note for the DVD version. But to me brock seems to be the ultimate bad guy. Didn’t like him as a good guy too much. Even so it makes him look like a berk at the end of his DVD.

    Pretty good job on this one. The duplicate matches are kind of a necessity in this set. I like the fact that the Unforgiven match is on here but i think the No Mercy match from the following year should be included. The fact that the Blu Ray gets so many extra matches i think makes sense. WWE needs to just start going to Blu Ray for all PPV’s. But they need to include the java they used to have on the discs to allow for the discs to start up where people left off.

  29. Dave says:

    Looks great! definitely picking up the Blu-ray.

    I guess we will find out with Lesnar vs Hardy match from Backlash 2002 if indeed the scratch logo will be included or not.

      Not sure how soon they’ll be able to put it into effect, but it looks like all our prayers have been answered.

      • Dave says:

        Thats awesome!!

        Wish they made a payment to the WWF a long time ago. The Attitude Era DVD has just gotten better and the perfect time to release it.

        • RabidHeat says:

          Aside from the fact that it will be like watching it through a letterbox because of the ratio bars. Why dioes that not seem to bother most people? It’s a genuine irritation of mine, and just as irritating as the blurring. So now we finally get WWF logos, but we have to watch the uncensored match with bars either side?

          • Dave says:

            Don’t you understand what the ratio bars mean? WWE has included their footage in 16:9 for the last two years. SD content in HD will have the ratio bars.

            Why don’t people understand?!?….people are still bitching about this…in 2012!

            If you don’t like them just stretch or zoom to make it even worse.

            • Beerad says:

              I actually don’t mind the side bars or WWE designs because like you said it makes the picture clearer and better

            • Beerad says:

              picking this up on blu ray, only chance I can Cena vs Brock match will be in full HD in the US, unless this match is part of the Best PPV Matches of 2012 whenever that comes out

  30. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    I own the original Here Comes the Pain DVD, and it doesn’t matter because the Blu-ray is a must buy for me. I already knew what to expect with this Collectors Edition, so, I am not disappointed at all. I’m glad they have his debut from March 2002 on here too.

  31. Bowers says:

    I bought the original “Here Comes the Pain” not too long again from the $5 bin at wal-mart wasn’t planning on picking this up but i think the Extras sold me on picking up the Bluray

  32. Fer says:

    hope the 60 minutes match is the complete uncut version, that way I can buy this, and did not skip buying the horrible 21s century superstars just for that match

  33. Anonymous says:

    i glad they put his royal rumble victory on here and the unforgiven match against the undertaker

  34. Harry Faversham says:

    I think it looks great! And blu ray for this one.

  35. RabidHeat says:

    I would have definitely left off that pointless Unforgiven 2002 Brock/Undertaker match with the non-finish and instead put on their Biker Chain Match from a year later at No Mercy.

    Do they really have to make people who still buy DVD feel SO terrible by leaving off such good stuff? It’s like you have to buy BluRay to feel like you have a complete overview of anybody’s career these days. It’s so frustrating when you know that they could actually fit it all on the DVD. 🙁

    • Geolink says:

      I just think people have to move on with the times as well as WWE with DVD’s. It’s 2012 and regular 480p DVD’s are still the standard for releases (WWE) when it should be Blu-ray. Blu-ray player prices are decreasing every year and a lot of people own PS3’s. I definitely want the clearest picture and sound even though most of the footage will be upscale. It still doesn’t hurt to shell out a few more dollars for a slightly better quality. This also goes for newer releases like PPV’s (which are rare in the US) and documentary releases. Why bother getting the regular DVD? Get the Blu-ray.

      • RabidHeat says:

        Errrrr…because not everybody can afford it.

        • Geolink says:

          That’s my point though. People need to move on with the times. I understand it’s pricey but there are a considerable amount of affordable Blu-ray players out now then there were 4-5 years ago. I hope regular DVD still is the standard 2 or 3 years from now.

  36. Daniel says:

    I was waiting to see the match listing and the Blu Ray has sold it. I will be getting this.


    Looks awesome defo a buy for me in some sorts, the blu-ray extras rock, vs Ric Flair Raw 2002, vs Kurt Angle vs Big Show Vengeance 2003, vs The Rock and Triple from Global Warming Tour in Australia in 2002, and him teaming up with Kurt Angle and Hulk Hogan against big show and Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin,
    the footage on discs 1 and 2 will be upscaled to look great on blu-ray so its a must have on blu-ray despite ppl having the original dvd, to which i dont,

    First DVD and Blu-ray we are going to see if the WWF Scratch Logo is still blurred in the Jeff Hardy vs Brock Lesnar Match at Backlash 2002 despite them settling all procedures with the courts.

    Holla Holla Holla

  38. SRB says:

    Horrible. We have 4 repeated matches from “Here comes the pain” as well as the entire repeated documentary, although we received a heads up on that one. But, in general the DVD offers nothing new. I think the blu-ray extras are great and this might work for some people who don’t already own here comes the pain. I’ll probably be selling my original and will likely pick up this blu-ray.

  39. nick says:

    Not bad, I didnt think they would repeat all the matches from the original, that will not sit well with owners of the 1st dvd. Lot of TV matches which is nice and I cant believe they put the goldberg match on there.

    Surprised that they didnt wait later to put the HHH match on but i guess WWE want us to buy summerslam as well.
