I watched the Rock's DVD set over the course of a couple nights this week. It was decent, but it seemed kind of... amateurly produced in some spots almost. It seemed a step below the shawn micheals dvd (the last one I got), and several steps below my ultimate warrior dvd (my all time favorite).
Regardless, I'm in the mood now to pick up a few more DVDs to watch as I have time. What other DVDs released in the past few years are worth picking up? I favor the storyline/bio ones over the ones that are just "10 decent matches picked because they weren't on the last set that were put out for this guy", but those are good too if done well.
I seem to remember hearing good things about the last Ric Flair DVD. Any other recommendations?
The Triple H dvd's are good, The Monday Night Wars is another good DVD, and The McMahons DVD is good too. You can't go wrong with a couple of Divas DVS's as well. I can sometimes find these DVD's to rent at my local video store or BlockBuster.
The Rock DVD was kind of eh and what made it even more disappointing is the WWE DVDs have been great for a while. There was a five or six year period where every one was awesome and if you liked the topic of the DVD you'd probably like the DVD.
My favorites are probably Bret Hart: Best There Is, Best There Was etc, Hard Knocks: The Chris Benoit Story, Eddie Guerrero: Cheating Death, Stealing Life and the Rise and Fall of ECW. All four have very good in depth bios. The Hart, Benoit and Eddie DVDs also have tons of good matches to boot. I don't really remember the matches for the ECW DVD off the top of my head though.
Monday Night Wars is another one with a good bio but I never watched the matches. I heard the Foley DVD was good too.
Since we're on the topic of DVDs did anybody get the Perfect DVD? He's one of my favorites but for some reason I figured it was going to be a disappointment compared to the ones I mentioned above, which were just loaded with good stuff.
The Horsemen DVD is really great especially when they rip into people like Luger and Paul Romo. The extras are good, but they good have done more with it. The documentary is top notch. I thought the problem with Rock's DVD is that the first disc was all about Austin and HHH which were his major foes at the time, but at times I wondered if I bought the wrong DVD. Shawn's new DVD is good to. I would also recommend Survivor Series 2001 just for the extra night after stuff like King and Flair returning. I miss when WWE used to do major stuff on the next night on Raw and through almost all of Raw into the DVD.
WWE is still a huge touring company, and they run two separate tours concurrently. They need enough wrestlers for that. Even when the revenue streams are down (or in the case of PPV, way down), they're still profitable.
