With the new Shawn Michaels DVD out who else should have a From The Vault DVD?

I think Ric Flair and Bret Hart would be good ones..I know there are others but those are the 2 I'd like.

Now that they have WWF and WCW/NWA footage who would benefit the most from this kind of DVD? Is their one the WWE wouldnt make but should?

On another note I think DVDs that are on specific wrestlers should have all their World Title wins....even if the matches werent good...just to have em all in one place..just a though. This would have been nice on Hogans and HBK's...not to mention others.

The trick to doing From The Vault DVDs is to not only compile a few memorable matches, but to put some forgotten matches in there as well. For example, on the Shawn Michaels DVD, all the matches from his WWF days were well known PPV matches and thus otherwise easy to come by.

I would assume that a good portion of sales of DVDs from this series (I assume it will be a series) are hardcore fans since they are being sold as collections of classic matches. I would venture a guess that most hardcore fans have the WMX ladder match and the ironman match already in their collections in some capacity. Why not trot out some harder to find stuff, such as...

any Hart Foundation/Rockers match from '90?
the phantom tag title change?
the Rockers/Orient Express Rumble '91 match?
Rocker Shawn vs. Ric Flair?
the Bret/Shawn ladder match from '92?
the Bret/Shawn Survivor Series '92 match?
Shawn's first IC title win over Davey Boy?
any match from the Shawn/Jannetty '93 series?
the Shawn/Razor ladder match from SummerSlam '95?
the Shawn/Owen "concussion" match from Raw late '95?
the Austin/Michaels tag title win?

Point is, with such a selection to choose from, all this DVD really offers is a rehash of stuff that most of us either already have or at least have already seen. Oh yeah, and the Buddy Rose diet plan ad. That might be worth something on it's own, but the price of a whole DVD? No way.

Let's just hope that when the Bret DVD comes out it's a little more complete.

I'd like to see a nice Mick Foley compilation. I bought 3 Faces of Foley today on DVD (coincedentally on the five-year anniversary of Hell in the Cell vs. UT) and noticed there isn't a whole lot on there.

How about a nice two-disc Foley DVD with the full HITC match as well as rare footage from WWF, WCW, Japan, and ECW.

Anyone know how Hard Knocks Cheap Pops is? Haven't seen it.

Tell me I didn't just say that.

I've never seen Hard Knocks Cheap Pops, but I've heard it was quite good with solid extras. RD at WrestleCrap speaks very highly of it, and I believe that's the one with the Kennel from Hell match with alternate commentary from Foley and Kevin Kelly that some people say is worth the price of the disc alone.

I've got Hard Knocks on back order at fucking They did this to me with a Rodney Yee yoga video too. Bastards.

I'd like to see a couple of title compilations. The US Championship. The Cruiserweight Championship.

I'd love to see a Bret Hart set but that's probably a couple years off. A Four Horsemen set would be good. The Dangerous Alliance.

It's just you against the group mind.

Hard Knocks/Cheap Pops is amazing.

The HBK From the Vault is great too. I would like it even better if I didn't already have Mind Games and Badd Blood on other DVD's, but that's okay. It's even nice to hear HBK discussing his matches.

As far as the From the Vault series, I would like to see titles like, say, "Bret Hart vs. Steve Austin" or "Mankind vs. UT". You could have all of the major matches in full, as well as cover the storyline in depth. Oh, well

The only problem is that to really do justice to some of these compilations (title histories, Ric Flair, etc.) you would need at least a three-disc set.

Oliva: You are the weakest link! Goodbye!

Stewie: Ahahaha. Oh God, that's funny. That's really funny. You write your own material? Do you? Because that is so fresh. 'You are the weakest link. Goodbye!' You know I've never heard anyone make that joke before. You're the first. I've never heard anyone reference that outside program before. Because that's what she says on the show, right? Hmmm? 'You are the weakest link. Goodbye!' And you've taken it and....and used it out of context to insult me in this everyday situation. What a clever, smart girl you must be. To come up with a joke like that all by yourself. Mmmmm...that's so fresh too. Any Titanic jokes you want to throw at me as long as we're hitting these phenomena at the height of their popularity. Mmmm? Cuz i'm here God you're so funny!

I would have absolutely no problems with stumping up the cash for three-disc sets on Foley, Flair, Bret, or Shawn. With Austin I'd be reluctant, due to the limited WCW material-which I already own-and the fact that I've been around for all of his great WWF matches.

You'll probably never see footage of the "Phantom Title Change" because the match was awful. (Both Bret and Shawn have gone on record saying this.)

If it was up to me I'd like to see a Goldberg dvd of all his televised matches during his winning streak back in wcw.

I know you goldberg haters would disagree but i think it would be nice to relive that historic run that took wrestling to new heights a few years ago.

LOL! Goldberg's run was hardly historic. I recall watching Nitro and the streak was at (i'm making up a number here) 77. By the time Thunder aired on the following Thursday, suddenly the streak was up to 83 or some big jump like that. I remember thinking, "How did he manage to win so many matches in only 2 or 3 days? Do they really think we're this stupid? Is anybody watching and BELIEVING this crap?"

The streak was fabricated. It was all storyline and hype to get Goldberg over. Their plan worked like a charm, so you're right about that much. I thought people knew that was all fake, but I guess not.

Chill, you may be thinking of Sid's.... Goldberg's actually wasn't THAT much of an exageration. 174 wins from September 1997 until December 1998, with house shows and all actually sounds about right.

The total of wins may be off since they didn't keep track at first - but I don't recall any serious jumps in the numbers like that.

They have the streak documented, as in who was what number on Goldberg's site. So if you want to read Hugh Morrus and Jerry Flynn 150 times, you can.

Title Compilations would be great. I'd love to see a Tag Title Comp with some Hart Foundation, British Bulldogs, and Brainbusters matches from the 80's.

Compilations for gimmick matches would be cool as well. Cage, Ladder, HITC, etc.

I would like to see From the Vault DVDs on Flair, Bret Hart, Austin, and Kurt Angle.

In addition to matches, they should also have promos and various interwiews leading up to those matches. (similar to the Michaels DVD.)

Hard Knocks/Cheap Pops had some great matches on it, but the highlight for me was the Foley/Kevin Kelly commentary for the Al Snow-Big Bossman Kennel In The Cell match. Either way, it is an awesome disc, and well worth picking up.

I would like to see the following From The Vaults, which I think they could do easily enough:

Steve Austin
Ric Flair
Bret Hart
Chris Jericho
Chris Benoit
Roddy Piper (okay, I KNOW that one ain't happening anymore, but still.... I woulda loved it!)

I'd think a Bret Hart DVD is long overdue, but given the history between the two sides, not that unexpected.

I second the call for more obscure Shawn matches. Anyone with a decent Wrestlemania collection already has the Iron Man and ladder matches. Let's look at some of the more hidden gems.

Here is what I would like to see..........

1)Kurt Angle!
2)Kurt Angle!
3)Kurt Angle's wife around the house in certin stages of undress!
4)Bret & Owen Hart(A ten disc history)
5)Latino Heat
6)Randy Savage
7)Chris Jericho
8)Honky Tonk Man
9)Andre The Giant
10)Edge & Christian(The Tag Team years)

Ric Flair would come in at two and Sting might be a close call for third. The only Angle video WWF put out could have been worlds better.

Flair seems to be the most obvious choice to me, with his really extensive history making it a genuine "From the Vault", like the title says. The only problem I can see is Flair's biggest history is NWA, and Vince seems to want the DVDs to be WWF/E heavy in content and focus. For Flair WWE stuff, the best things would probably be RR '91, the house show title loss to Bret, WM8 with Savage, maybe Flair/Ramon vs. Savage/Perfect, Loser leaves town vs. Perfect. Problem, of course, is that Flair only actually wins ONE of those matches.

Frankly, although I'm sure there'd be protestations, I can easily see them doing a UT one. Of course, some of the matches would REALLY suck, esp. his early ones, but he does have a long history with a WWE focus. Plus, it'd be funny to see footage of Mean Mark the Skyscraper. :)
