Looks really good, but there are some noticeable omissions from his WWE career, such as the RVD v. Eddie Guerrero ladder match (this was just put on the Guerrero DVD, though, so that may be why it's left out here), RVD v. Jericho from Unforgiven 2001, and RVD v. Chris Benoit from a July 2002 RAW in Greensboro, which are some of his best matches since coming to Titan. Throw in the RVD v. Austin match from a September 2001 SmackDown where Van Dam wins just to round out the disc.

Still, it looks like a great set.

I could live without Axl Rotten's existence in this set (though I understand the purpose of putting that match there), but this looks like an incredible set the rest of the way. Props to them for the two RVD-Sabu matches from 1996, which were some of the better pre-Mr. Monday Night stuff from RVD.

I am pleasantly shocked that they have so much ECW footage in there (and they even acknowledge that he used to be Robby Zee or Vee or whatever in WCW!).

I do agree, though, that there should be something in there from the Austin-Angle-RVD program (perhaps their triple-threat at the PPV?), just to show what kind of an impact they could have had in WWE.

But what's done is done. If that's the lineup, that's tremendous.

Now if I could only get my hands on the ECW DVD here in Canada already....

Now, this is what I expected in the ECW DVD. I was at the Unforgiven match in 2001, it was the best match of the night, plus it was a a whole lot better than the Jericho KOTR match. I would have put in his three way at No Mercy since its the only match he main evented at a PPV minus the elemination chamber. It looks like WWE will be getting more of my money good thing, I opted out of the Taboo Tuesday DVD.

I haven't checked, Bulldog, but it's supposed to be here already. According to SLAM!, they said the Canadian release date is the same as the U.S.

Wow, only three WWE matches? And his WCW days as Robbie V? Not a big Van Dam fan, but I may pick this one up.

Pffft... RVD is ok, I guess.

But the DVD that EVERYONE has been waiting for is here, as wXw presents: The Best of Gene Snitsky!

It isn't. At least in Toronto. I checked five stores last night that are usually among the first to carry WWE DVD's, and they said they didn't have a release date yet. That said, I hope you're right....

One match I'm pleasantly surprised to see on that DVD is the match he had with Ballz Mahoney. I always had a soft spot for Xanta Claus' ECW run, as in my opinion he was one of the handful of big men that were entertaining to watch. That particular TV title match was a lot of fun.

Oh man, I HATED that Ballz Mahoney match. It was really dull, slow and spotty, and showed off both mens' weaknesses in the worst possible way. It was also a really poorly-excuted hotshot angle at the end of an otherwise awesome show, which kind of left a sour taste in my mouth. I can't for the life of me figure out why they put it in this set.

Regarding the ECW DVD, the guy at HMV told me it SHOULD be available for this weekend. That is if they can get themselves to opening up the pile of boxes they got in the back.

Wow, I guess I'm not as big a wrestling fan as I thought, since this is the first time I've ever realized that Robby V and RVD were the same person.

That RVD/Jericho match is really good...just ask Y2J. But don't tell him you're an "internet fan."
