Well, if *I* ruled the world:
WM 1 extras...
-Hogan vs. Piper, MSG, "The War To Settle The Score" -Hogan v Cowboy Bob Orton, SNME -Greg Valentine (c) v. Tito Santana, Cage Match -Piper's Pit, SNME, where Orndorff makes his face turn -Some of the setup stuff for the main event (there was a lot of it, though, so take your pick) -Andre/S.D. Jones vs. Studd/Patera (The Haircut Match) -Iron Shiek and Volkoff (c) v. Windham/Rotundo -[I keep thinking to put the MSG rematch with the Sammartinos and Valient/Beefcake on this, but I can't bring myself to program a DVD with TWO David Sammartino matches...sorry.]
-Mr. T v. Boxing Bob Orton [SNME] -Hogan v. Magnificent Muraco [SNME] -Savage v. George Steele (SNME) -The promo with Piper going to Joe Frazier's gym. -Some of the battle royal promos -Junkyard Dog v. Terry Funk -Tito Santana (c) v. Randy Savage, Feb 1986, Boston
I'm pretty sure I'm leaving stuff out here, though...
This is awesome! I think there just releasing these in the UK first to test the market and then release in the US. But i'll prorbably wait for a while cause i've got Ric Flair, Mick Foley, Originals, Armageddon, Confidential 2, Rise and Fall of WCW and Kurt Angles DVDs on my list already!
Oh and also, which is it Rise and fall of WCW or Monday Night Wars? Cause on the silvervision site it says Monday Night Wars.
That's the only Rumble I've never seen, since it was on USA, and Coliseum never released it. I figured if WWE ever did start releasing old events on DVD, they'd give us the '88 Rumble, but it looks like they're starting with the '89.
Whether or not I buy these depends on how much extras there are and if there are complete matches or not. I have all the Coliseum tapes of these events, but Coliseum really did a hatchet job on those old PPVs. One not good sign: Coliseum completely cut the Race/Haku match from the '89 Rumble, and it doesn't appear in the match listing for the DVD either. Not that I would particularly care to see the match, but if they're just taking the Coliseum versions and putting them on DVD, I'll pass.
I'm not sure it needs a name but off the top of my head 'Coat Of Arms' wouldn't suck too hard. We might be too close to the end of The Shield to bother with naming it though. If they're naming their individual moves it's for a reason.
