Question for anyone who's watched or owns the new version of Beyond the Mat: The Ringside Special Edition. I already own the VHS and have worn it out to the point where buying it on DVD is an inevitability. I'm now wondering if the new Ringside Special Edition DVD is worth getting over the regular one.
And what differences are there? I know about the Jesse Ventura parts and running commentary tracks. But I heard somewhere that the special edition VHS has Justin Credible shooting on Vince and the WWF. Is this included in the new DVD?
The "Justin Incredible" shoot comments are the same as the ones included on the extended VHS edition.
The new DVD does not feature the bonus thirty minutes featured on the extended VHS copy, nor does it feature the brief commentary track from Mick Foley detailing the Royal Rumble '99 events that was on the original DVD release.
It does, however, include the Terry Funk/Blaustein commentary from the original DVD.
"I got it. I'll just write 'deceased' and where it says 'Sex:' I'll put 'No, thank you, I'm dead.' It's bulletproof." -Peter Griffin
The difference with those guys and what TNA needs to do, is that when the WWF used them to make money from them, they had all undergone dramatic gimmick changes to the point where most fans didn't even recognize them anymore.
