As far as the content, it's a condensed version of the Wrestlemania All Day Long that aired on PPV prior to Wrestlemania 16. The PPV version is 8 hours long and has never seen an official DVD release. The DVD is about 2 hours and features interviews with guys like Finkle, Patterson, Briscoe and others talking about behind the scenes stuff as well as match clips.

While the DVD version is worth watching, the PPV version is excellent with many more interviews of (then) current WWE superstars talking about their memories of the events. I recorded it to VHS when it aired and converted it to dvd some time ago.
I remember the day of Wrestlemania 2000 they aired the 8 hr version on Direct TV around noon and ended around the countdown to WM2000. Couldn't really sit through all of it so i just watched the last hour before WM.

I guess the highlights of Wrestlemania is the same dvd that is included in the WM2000 release.

I got mine at Best Buy today with the error insert for about $24 but in my past experiences Wal-Mart is usually one of the cheapest places.
Wait for a couple of weeks & you can probably get it on eBay or Amazon for even cheaper

BFG '07, Genesis '07, and Lockdown '08 are excellent deals for that price. I'm somewhat surprised by the sheer quantity of stuff available for $6, but given how many TNA releases were given $10 price points by BB earlier this year, I probably shouldn't be.

Didn't they just have a sale on TNA DVDs. I bought TNA: Best of 2007 for $9.99 back in August, and I used a $5 gift certificate, so it came to $5 total.

The only two there I'd really like to pick up are Lockdown '08 and Genesis '07. Lockdown had the wargames match and Joe's title win, but otherwise sucked. And Genesis is one of the few TNA ppvs where I can honestly say I enjoyed every match.

big macho man fan here...

question to this who have watched the new Intercontinental DVD Disc 1, is the 'enter the macho man' chapter merley an introduction by Grisham, or is there an noteworthy clips of promos by Savage? this DVD has too many repeat matches for my liking so the only thing that could make me purchase is some rare macho man footage... anyone want to give me a review? thanks in advance.

grisham introduces him and says something very complimentary, along the lines of 'the sequined robes reminded many fans of ric flair and as far as in-ring talent goes he wasn't far behind.' quite surprised there was such high praise. he's even listed as a 'future hall of famer' on the back of the dvd (along with ultimate warrior) i wonder if mcmahon seen that copy! there's quite a few clips of him but no promos.

I really, REALLY hope this isn't the final cover for Survivor Series



It was my first WWE event live and I'm gonna get the DVD, but I'd wish it was something else on the cover. Hopefully theres a tin released with a different cover. lol

The FYE tins usually have the same cover as the regular release, but I agree, hopefully this isn't final.

I doubt that's the official cover - Why give away the result of the Main Event blatantly on the cover?

It's John Cena and most, if not all, people buying it knew the outcome before any DVD release.

Was there 2 different covers to Bad Blood 2004?
I've been seeing one with Edge on the cover(ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/518VXT00PVL._SL500_AA240_.jpg), the one I have is with Shawn Michaels (highspots.com/images/images_125/aaa_badblood04.jpg)

The original cover was going to feature Edge on the cover, like in the DVD, but he played such a small role in the event that it was changed to Michaels. I don't believe there are any copies with Edge on the cover.

What's even weirder is the cover for the Tagged Classics: Bad Blood/Vengeance 2003. It's got the Bad Blood 2004 Edge poster on it. D'oh!

Yes, there are. I've seen them at FYE and other stores. I mentioned this in one of the past threads but I can't seem to find the exact explanation for it.

the reason why Edge was on the Bad Blood/Vengeance 2003 tagged classic cover because the official 2003 Bad Blood cover had Kevin Nash and HHH, and Nash is in TNA so they didn't want to promote him right on their cover.

Doesn't make sense because Nash is on the Judgment Day 2003 cover and on the Tagged Classics cover.
