I guess the big deal is the matches that took place. I highly recommend it.

I got the Global Impact DVD from Best Buy today, and even though I haven't finished watching it I highly recommend it. The match quality (so far) is excellent and just goes to show that even if TNA doesn't have the best booking they do have some great talent. Even if you hate TNA this DVD is worth owning.

I'll probably have a look in my local Cash Converters (UK) to see if I get lucky finding some older WWF DVDs. Probably won't but worth a try.

just a question i have, i started getting wwe dvds a few years back, around 2005, i only get the really good ones, i dont get the ones if they only have 1 or 2 matches i want to see, most of the ones i have are atleast a 2 disk if not a 3 or 4 disk set

my question is are there any real good ones that came out earlyier on, like before 2004 or so, i heard they never started doing 2 disk sets regularly until around that time, if not can anybody tell me the name of them

also i heard many on here say wwe 24/7 is awesome, is it on dish network or do you need to be subscribe to a local network like some cable company, and does it come up as a special station on the satillete dish

im confused about on demand stations, do u need a special receiver to have those stations show up or does it automatically show up, my friend has dish network and i tryed to look for it on there and saw nothing

I got 24/7 few months back, its only on cable and not satellite. Its $9.95/month and basically theres categories for each theme (Big ones, Legends, TV Classics, etc.) and you just select what you want. They update the footage every month. You don't have to pay for the programming.

For $10/month for endless classic footage, its DEFINITELY worth the money.

ok cool, thanks, but back to me other question

i never started getting wwe dvds till around 2005 or so, i heard they never started doing 2 disk and 3 disk sets till around 2005, can anybody tell me what good wwe dvds were released before 2005, and what year did they start releasing them, i saw from the vault shawn michaels in 2003 that was 2 disk, but next to that what other good ones are there, and is from the vault really worth it, i already got most of his big matches

This is what I'd love to be honest. They don't offer this service in the UK

I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but I was checking the specs for the upcoming PS3 Smackdown 2009 game and the Collectors Edition includes several notable items:
  • Available only on PS3, this ultra rare Collectors Edition, will be shipping in a collectible steel cage packaging
  • Includes WWE SmackDown vs Raw 2009 videogame, Exclusive WWE WrestleMania 24 Main Event Match: Edge vs Undertaker and a bonus WWE Legends of WrestleMania videogame trailer
  • Includes an exclusive WWE Blu-ray with over 2 hours of additional content: Best of Raw and SmackDown Matches, plus bonus SmackDown vs Raw 2009 videogame behind-the-scenes documentary

The blu ray extras sound interesting. Even though the game is going to probably suck more than last year, I will try to pick this up on release date. On a side note, why the fuck does THQ insist on keeping that crappy Smackdown series alive instead of going back to the No Mercy engine? Doesn't this company understand that what makes a video game good is gameplay, not graphics, complicated controls and lame features?

I have a quick question for forum members in the U.S. who have bought some of the UK Tagged Classics releases.
When you play them back on your dvd player, does it look like video is slowed down only slightly? On mine it looks like it is and the video almost looks like you're watching a movie rather than a wrestling event because the brightness looks slightly darker than on my US released dvd's.
