Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume XI

Nope. They are not region free. In addition, they are all PAL as compared to NTSC for the North America releases. You can still watch them if you have a region free player or one that can be hacked to do so, and can also handle PAL formatted discs- Oppo players are great for this. You'll still notice a difference in picture quality, or rather a difference in framerate, as PAL is around 24 fps instead of the 30 that NTSC uses. The picture has a film-esque look and is just a touch slower, obviously.

There's a match from MSG April 23 1984 between the two on the "Legends of Wresting" Sgt Slaughter/Ric Flair dvd, which were WWE 24/7 roundtables w/bonus matches released for low price points at retail. I dont know if it's the match you're looking for (I'll check it out shortly though), but it's a different match than on the 80s dvd, which is from MSG, 5/21/84.



OK I've watched the first few minutes, it's not announced nor talked about as a Boot Camp match, and aside from pre match posturing, it seems like a regular 'grudge' match to me.

The boot camp match was on 6-16-84 so it hasn't been on DVD.

Hey, either way, thanks a lot for the info. I appreciate it.

Any content with Sting? He was my favorite in the WCW. The silent Sting was a brilliant character movie, but I have yet to see any of his WCW content on dvd. His TNA dvds really sucked.


I'm just glad to finally see a dvd release with documentaries. I was disappointed that the Edge and Randy Savage dvds were all matches, no bio stories.

I'm half way through disc 1, but I think it will be the full match beucase so far all of the moments have been clipped with some introductions by Michael Cole & Matt Striker, but all of the matches have been full with all of the entrances. The only thing is, as usual instead of using the footgae they have during the commercial brake, they just have a black screen for a few seconds

Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume XI

I received the Smackdown Tenth Anniversary set today, haven't watched it yet though. For some reason it's released in the UK now and Sept 15th in the States, but we don't get the Rise And Fall Of WCW until October.

What do you mean by pop ups? In the segents such as a look at "Headcheese", Rock 'n Sock, and Thanksgiving With Smackdown! they have comments by Michael Hayes, Matt Striker, Santino Marella (In Character ), Matt Hardy etc

5 minutes 15 seconds. It's just a video package of the match not even any comments from anyone.

Damn! was hoping to get at least a good portion of the match.

Maybe they will include it if they release a Brock Lesnar or Kurt Angle DVD in future.

So our upcoming releases are:

I bet they announce a CM Punk DVD :/
It would be more than OK if they owned the ROH library, but CM Punk's WWE Career can bearly take up 1 disc. And with the Hogan DVD, I hope it's a Part 1 DVD of the old Hulkamania tapes, and they could put at least 6 or 7 volumes on each 3 disc set...

Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume XI

I got the WCW DVD this afternoon. The doc was pretty good. Although it did need a lot of work...a few observations:

- Liked the history of it before Watts came in. A lot of the information in there even I didn't know.

- Did not like the fact there is no mention of Ron Simmons being champ. That was a big deal years ago.

- No mention of the Radicals. Total BS even if Vince doesn't like Benoit now.

- As noted before, there was no need to go into great detail about the Monday night wars.

- Wish there was more focus on the cruiserweights when Nitro was in it's prime.

- No mention of War Games and some of the other gimmicky stuff.

- No mention of Sting, but they again that doesn't surprise me.

- Wish there was more info about the New Blood angle.

- DDP got glossed over, I feel he was vital to the rise of WCW.

Overall, it was a good doc, aside from the points I mention. At $17.99 for the set, it is a great deal and I hope they do more. Later I am going to post what DVD's they should do now after watching this set.

Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume XI

Just watched WCW and its a cruel reminder how much of my interest in wrestling died with WCW.

Great doc though, and I was surprised to see Goldberg interviewed.
No mention of Sting was expected, but still stupid.
Forgot about the Halloween Havoc fiasco.
I would have also liked to have seen more of the New Blood.
Also love or hate it with David Arquette there was no mention that WCW was also promoting a movie with that stunt.
I think Jeff Jarret was treated a little harshly. In the final days, him and Booker T were carrying the company the best they could, IMO

And damn I am still a mark for Goldberg
