I'd probably buy that first disk, especially for Gangstas/Eliminators and Taz/Sabu. Don't know if I'd get it with the new stuff on disk two, though. I guess I'll wait and see what the price winds up being.
No Raven match? No bWo? No Triple Threat? No Bam Bam Bigelow vs Taz? No Shane Douglas vs anyone? This dvd has dreamer matches which i love, but no raven or shane douglas or for that matter no impact playaz makes me wonder who is picking these matches
It's tough to tell the history of ECW and *Extreme* without Raven in there. He might not have been in ECW all that long, but he was there at it's peak. Plus he was involved in the most 'mature' storylines.
The Gangstas/Eliminators is just a bad match. It's 15-20 minutes of poor camera angles and some repetive garbage brawling. Raven/Richards vs the Pitbulls in the dogcollar match would have been a much much better pick, but I'm also not sure how many other DVDs that one has popped up on.
Also the Cactus Jack vs Sandman match might be one of the lamest Cactus Jack matches from that time and really doesn't show what either men were really about. If you like cane shot after cane shot then go for it.
This is not a DVD to go run out and buy. Rent it if you must see it for yourself, but do not plunk down the $30 dollars for these matches have little to no rewatch value.

Sometimes I think Raven's the WWE's "He Whose Name Must Not Be Spoken, Let Alone Have His Matches Included On Any Extreme DVDs".
Never argue religion, politics, wrestling or the merits of individual wrestlers--no one else will recognize you for the expert you obviously are and resent your insistence that you're right and they all have s**t for brains.
Heel Rock, Evil Refs, return of Austin, Mattitude gets gold, Jericho gets cheered and a very good Big Show match I really enjoyed this ppv and got far beyond my money's worth for Austin's return (and the return of the talking watch!)
