Just got back from WalMart, where I found a display for WWE wrestling DVDs and tapes. Most DVDs were from 2002-04. Most were $9.88, and the ones that were $19.88 were Wrestlemania XIX, Bad Blood 2004, and the Great American Bash 2004.
I bought three, each for $9.88:
Survivor Series 2002 (Elim Chamber, Smackdown 6 tag title match, Steiner's debut, etc) Survivor Series 2003 (Goldberg vs HHH, Taker vs Vince, Shane vs Kane ambulance match, etc) and Before They Were Superstars 2
Just thought some Canadian wieners might be interested.
You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.
"It actually got to a point where it became difficult for me to NOT think about Wang, for my thoughts were filled with visions of Wang." (CRZ)
However (at least for American Wally-Worlds) avoid the $5.50 DVD bins like hot buttered death if you're looking for wrestling DVD's. The only ones I saw were "Before They Were Stars" ones that aren't the Wrestling Gold series. Basically, a few unremarkable matches, JIP, for $2.75 a pop. Uhm, I'll pass, assuming 411's reviews are true.
But DO dip into there for Wall Street and Mucha Lucha. Of course.

It's funny you mentioned this; I JUST went there this weekend for the first time in ages and found the Global Warning Tour for $9.98 as well. Considering all I wanted for was the 'vintage' 1986 matches, not too shabby. I also saw a few other 2002-2003 PPV's for the same price. I'll definitely be headed back there.
On a semi-related note, anyone in the TO area know where to pick up the Wrestling Gold/OVW/SMW DVD's? I used to find them at the Sam the Record Man on Yonge Street, but they're all cleared out now....
Between this and the story about Vince stopping a match because he was bored and wanted to start the bikini contest, it seems to me like they're just taking Crash TV to the house shows in an attempt to revitalize business.
