-------------------------------------------------------
I know Christian was a big acquisiton for them, and he's been great in the short time he's been there. But to actually be able to put together a best of DVD of a guy who's maybe only had a handful of matches total of a guy is just insane. And I'm sure he'll have a couple more matches by the time they gotta start cutting everything for the DVD, but god damn, that's a little early, IMO. Too early for a Best of Samoa Joe DVD as well, but at least he's had a variety of matches to choose from, not just a handful in total. And putting "Best of" on the title is a joke too, but even that pales in comparison...

Well Lesnar got a best of DVD from the WWE after being there only like a year.

Its the same reason they made a Jeff Hardy DVD = money. Christian is one of their top draws, so they want a TNA DVD featuring him on the shelves as soon as possible. Put stuff like his tag match with Sting on there, and people will probably buy it.

As far as I'm concerned, a best of Joe in TNA DVD needs to come out sooner.

Forget the Christian Cage DVD. Did I just read that they're releasing a Best of Samoa Joe DVD? My god, that is... well, awesome.

Maybe it's going to be a part matches/part shoot interview DVD? I cant imagine they have enough original footage of him to justify a whole DVD either, maybe they got their hands on some pre-WWE footage?

I've never seen a TNA DVD, are they pretty much like the WWE ones?

They may have the footage of Christian Cage in his pre-WWE days because he worked for Scott D'Amore.

Just like the new Christopher Daniels DVD has some Windy City Wrestling footage.

    It probably won't come out for a while. By that time he will have already had his world title match with Jarrett, plus the tag match with Sting from Final Resolution which will make it on there.

    It is kind of silly that he gets one this quickly, but TNA is trying to bring in more revenue quickly, and their DVD's sell well, so that's their logic.

    It probably will be something like that. They probably could get their hands on some BCW footage if need be. But seeing as to how Christian spent so much time in WWE and had so many great moments there, this DVD won't really do him justice.

    They aren't as professional and nicely done. Most TNA DVD's have just matches on them and maybe some introductions by Tenay and West or some interview footage with AJ.

    They did it differently with Daniels DVD, making it more like a career recap in TNA and clipping most of the matches except the ones from Impact and the Iron Man match from Against All Odds.

More than a year is different than a few months, though, and it wasn't really a "Best of" DVD for Lesnar - it was a biography of him with several matches on the disc as well. By that time, too, he had already had his WWE Title win over Rock and HITC with Taker, and Christian hasn't had anything like that in TNA yet.

Just to note, they're not releasing it until the Summer. So they have some time.

I'm hoping that they just do (unclipped) matches on the Samoa Joe DVD, and subtitle it "Volume 1." Then I'll be a happy man, and more importantly, TNA would get $20 out of me.
