WWF No Mercy 2001 is a forgotten gem of a show, with a great double main event and a very good Ladder match further down the card.
WWF SummerSlam 2001 is quite entertaining, though a notch below both the preceding 2000 and subsequent 2002 cards.
Under different circumstances and with more genuine star power, WWF Invasion 2001 would be remembered as an all-time legendary show.
WWF King Of The Ring 2001 is noteworthy from a historical standpoint, but it is less than enthralling to watch from a quality standpoint.
If you’re after worked shoots, Russo booking, and more Arquette, WCW New Blood Rising 2000 has you covered.
Overall, WCW Bash At The Beach 1994 was a really good show.
What If Hulk Hogan Hadn’t Been The Third Man?
Is this a collection full of classic matches? Absolutely not. But is this a really enjoyable, suitably-nostalgic and overall thoroughly entertaining look through the vaults of one of the greatest wrestlers of all-time? Ooooh, yeah!
Randy Savage Unreleased is the perfect introduction to one of the most important, endlessly charismatic figures in the history of sports-entertainment!
In 2001, the wrestling business changed dramatically. Both ECW and WCW went under, the latter being purchased by the WWF. The short-term fall-out included the Invasion angle by what would become a WCW/ECW Alliance. But what if WCW had remained in existence?
f you still find yourself gesturing for the Diamond Cutter today and you're ready to "Feel The Bang", I strongly recommend this DVD for you. Besides, if you watch it, it's not a bad thing, it's a good thing!
For the first time ever, hear from “The Master Of The Diamond Cutter” himself as he talks about his historic career, as he rose to the top of the industry becoming a major player in both WCW and WWE.
It isn't the best by any means, due to the quality drop-off on discs two and three, but there's plenty to savour for longtime fans, and it completes the WCW set, so to speak, if you already own the Best-Of compilations for Monday Nitro and Starrcade.
If you're a longtime fan, you'll probably enjoy this DVD, and if nothing else, you'll get a chuckle from the random yet endearing comments made throughout by the late, great American Dream.
This is a great introduction to WCW for newer fans and a fun trip down memory lane for longtime followers, and a nice reminder that there was far more to the history of WCW than Nitro, The Monday Night War and the weekly adventures of the nWo.
Overall, I would suggest that casual fans probably won't consider this to be a great three-disc set. Hopefully, its legacy will reach new heights in the years to come, but with this run-down of its legacy so far, die-hard fans and collectors are most likely to look at buying and enjoying this DVD.
The lighter content on his run as Razor Ramon and his nWo contributions, as well as some high-quality action amongst the extra matches, further boosts the prestige of this set, which will be remembered as one of the best WWE releases all year.
It's entertaining, no question, but it needed more time for this release to be a perfect tribute to the legend that is Bobby The Brain Heenan, the greatest manager ever, the greatest heel announcer of all-time, and arguably the funniest wrestling personality that ever lived.
This isn't as good as the Paul Heyman DVD, since Heyman's off-screen future was far more explosive and his honesty is almost unparalled on virtually any subject, but it is an entertaining and at times insightful look at one of the most important and influential figures from the most exciting era in wrestling history.
