I just picked up Clash of the Champions. Very disappointing set. If you want to watch Ric Flair do his usual 5 spots over and over and over and over again and have the same match with different opponents, this set is for you. If you like low production values and terrible matches, this set is for you.
This set pails in comparison to the Rise and Fall of WCW, Starrcade, and WCW Nitro sets.
Save your money.
Tom, just wondering if you could explain more. You say the matches are bad, but the listing was released about a month ago. Most of the WCW sets i thought have been decent. Flair didnt seem to run the show on this set after looking at the listing. Do you feel the production was kinda cheap? just wondering
I might pick up these Superstar DVDs, if they have matches from Raw & Smackdown. If it’s only PPV matches, I’ll pass.
If kids did watch 9 hours of early 90’s hbk, maybe they would have better taste in wrestlers lol
I think yout missing the point. These are aimed at the younger viewers. You really think a 10 year old is going to sit and watch 9 hours of Shawn Michaels from the early 1990s?? I don’t think so
Not too sure whose missing the point, so I’ll assume you’re saying I am. I agree with your statement. “You really think a 10 year old is going to sit and watch 9 hours of Shawn Michaels from the early 1990s?? I don’t think so.” But that’s just the problem with WWE… THEY IGNORE THEIR OWN HISTORY. HBK had hours and hours of worthy DVD material within his first few years of WWE, can we say that for Bryan, Shaemus or Zack Ryder? No we cant. So, WWE releases 1 disc sets knowing their up and commers and tomorrow’s title holders are nothing compared to the past. There’s a reason why WWE hasnt released a 3 disc Shaemus set, it would put people to sleep! Only 10 year olds should be hoping that discs come out aimed at ten year olds, I’m a grown man so I want classics from when I was little. It’s only natural.
So get one of the many sets that cover Shawn Michaels entire career. Problem solved. And how is this proof that WWE ignores history? You do realize there’s numerous sets that cover the 90’s, 80’s, even 70’s. Why, I hear they’re even coming out with a Clash of the Champions set!
The proof lies in the fact that they ignore people from the past who are far more deservant of sets like Rick Rude, British Bulldog and Ted Dibiase. Instead they focus on Zack Ryder?
So because they market their current product, like any business should, this is somehow proof that they ignore the past? Can you point me in the direction of the article that states that these are replacing classic superstar sets on the release schedule? I must have missed it. Thanks!
No, its because the DVDs on the old guys don’t actually sell well at all.
Dusty, Piper, Steamboat, all of these old guys had good documentaries, but they barely sold any copies.
There is a reason Cena, The Rock and Austin have so many DVDs, they make the WWE money.
Also read that he Billy Graham DVD sold horribly too, which had a decent documentary. The fact is, the DVD sets on legends like Anonymous said don’t sell well. I think Hogan and Flair are the exception, those sets sold well so they released other compilations.
Its all business and WWE is about making money…i doubt kids these days even know who Rick Rude is.
Also the grown adults like to complain about WWE in every aspect, yet most don’t even support them buy purchasing their products, they stream their ppvs, download the DVDs from torrent sites and yet think WWE should cater to them…there is a reason WWE is targeted to kids now, because they know parents buy these things for their kids.
Its a shame, but what can you do.
Yep. They CAN produce Legends DVD’s, they just can’t financially do 10 of them a year. Unfortunately, some people can’t wrap their heads around that simple logic and think that it’s WWE “ignoring” their longtime fanbase. nevermind the fact that over the past few years we’ve been given sets on Brian Pillman, Mr. Perfect, World Class, AWA, Clash, Greatest 90’s stars, etc.
Why are they pictures from last year? The covers look so outdated.
WORST DVD COVERS… EVER!!!
How about a fantasy concept that these never get released? lol
These look like something packaged with a doll or in a happy meal. Ass.
To do the Superstar series DVDs with guys like Cena, HBK and Mysterio seems like a waste to me. These guys, although deserving of sets have had multiple sets and pretty much had had their careers from start to end documented on DVD multiple times. I feel like if you want to release something on the top guys mixing it up with guys like Kofi, Bryan and Shaemus comes off as misplaced. A 1 disc HBK DVD makes absolutly no sense to me.
