I think it should hav had either the Corporation w/DX OR the nWo w/DX
Great cover with the focus put on the right groups (except for the odd Nexus inclusion which is totally out of place as they really aren’t that noteworthy and stylistically it looks odd). I also think the green X on the spine is too much. It’s just too bad the content doesn’t live up to the artwork as there’s simply too many repeats to make this set special.
I like the cover alot actually. The only issues I have is The Spirit Squad shouldn’t even be on this release, and I’m very surprised the Legends of Wrestling: Factions episode wasn’t included as a Blu-ray exclusive. That would have been great and the show added alot to the nWo and RAW 1000 sets previously. Oh well I guess.
Having rewatched that episode recently on the WWE Network, I felt that the inclusion of Ric Flair on the Factions panel really hurt the episode. He really forces his stories despite the other members of the panel trying to get a word in (much like what happened at the SummerSlam 2K14 Symposium).
You’re right… I totally forgot about Flair on that episode. He did bring it down some. Every faction they talked about Flair would cut in and bring up the Horsemen. Maybe its better it’s off then, lol.
How could you not include the Alliance? Still confuses me….
Does anyone know how many matches are repeats on this?
The Flag Match With The Hart Foundation Vs Austin,Taker,and Dude Love from Raw July 21,1997.Its on the Hart and Soul Dvd
The War games Match from Fall Brawl 98.Its on the NWO,The Revolution and Wargames DVDS
Evolution Vs The Dudley Boyz from Raw,July 14 2003.Its On Orton’s Dvd
Legacy Vs Triple H,Batista,and Shane Mcmahon From Backlash 2009.Its a Blu Ray Extra on The Top 25 Rivalries Set
The War Games Match from Fall Brawl 95,Its on the War Games Set
Big Show Vs The Straight Edge Society From Summerslam 2010.Its on Big Show’s DVD
Actually, Evolution vs. The Dudley Boyz appears on Top 50 Finishers.
i dont expect rick rudes pic or anything but i hate when they leave out chyna. she was a pretty huge part of the og lineup and the post wm14 dx with xpac and the nao.
Yes, it’s truly shocking that a PG-rated family-friendly company doesn’t want to associate itself with a hardcore porn star.
So Sean Waltman wasn’t the one Chyna was humping in two videos?
X-Pac stopped after those. Chyna continued to make a career out of it, including making one featuring parodies of WWE superstars. X-Pac’s way less of a potential PR nightmare than Chyna is regarding that stuff, even if she’s supposedly stopped doing it.
Almost missed the the nWo on the spine.
Whoa, I didn’t even see that. Nice find.
I don’t like it. It’s the most generic looking cover in a long time.
If it were up to me, I would have taken off DX and replaced them with the spirit squad instead.
That aside, I agree that the N and X look completely out of place with the design they went for.
The Nexus N and the X on the side look really out of place with the Horsemen and DX, but that’s not the end of it. The DX depicted on the cover never existed either. Sure, there was that one night reunion where they beat up Damien Sandow, but this seems to be some weird hybrid of 2006 DX and 1998 DX which is only feasible if WWE’s invented the time machine Edge and Christian had in that one SvR game. Which results in a very strange cover all around.
Good cover I agree the nexus n is very bad and doesnt belong, if they had to have something like that why not have a nWo spray painted somewhere on it would have been much cooler
Why is the Dungeon Of Doom or The Varsity Club not on the cover.. Not even Kai En Tai or The Cabinet.. geez,no effort.
The perfect cover except for 1 thing: DX. Would much rather have seen a more deserving faction, like Paul Roma and S.D. Jones.
Would’ve been a great cover, but the Nexus ‘N’ is laughably bad.
Good cover, not into the “X” or “N” lettering on the side or cover though.
A lot of these covers are starting to use the same basic layout, see the best of ran=w and smackdown 2013 and Elimination Chamber 2014.
