BONUS: 6 hidden Easter eggs
Running Time: 10+ hours ------------------------------------- Bah! I've seen most of those matches already, but at least I'll have them on DVD. The DVD will be worth it for the promos alone.
Between this and the Steel Cage DVD, WWE have done a great job.
Even with the Clash VI and Rumble 92 matches, there's only about four and a half hours of matches, right? Let's be generous and say the extras and Easter eggs take up 3 hours. That leaves about 3 hours of more matches (pretty please?). One match I've never seen but always wanted to see is Flair-Vader from Starrcade 93.

The Flair/Windham match is an hour as well, as that was the night they went the whole show with one match. Hopefully they show the build-up to Starrcade '85, with Flair telling Dusty not to save him on TBS, then Dusty making the save in the Omni, only to be attacked in the cage by the Andersons and Flair. And, this is being a bit picky, I wouldn't mind seeing some earlier Flair/Steamboat US Title matches from the late 70's or the Meadowlands World Title match in '84.
Where's the spaceship? The Mayor promised a spaceship if we beat the A's, and I want my spaceship.
At the risk of sounding ungrateful to WWE for putting together what's sure to be the best DVD they've ever released....two Steamboat matches? Now I know that they're both classic matches, but couldn't they have just picked one of them and used the other hour for 1-2 shorter bouts (i.e. Flair/Savage from WrestleMania VIII, Flair/Vader, etc.)
"When this bogus term alternative rock was being thrown at every '70s retro rehash folk group, we were challenging people to new sonic ideas. If some little snotty anarchist with an Apple Mac and an attitude thinks he invented dance music and the big rock group is coming into his territory, [that's] ridiculous." - Bono, 1997
I'm DEFINITELY (not 'definatley,' people!) not complaining about the lineup of matches on this DVD set, but why not include Flair-Sting from Clash 1? No WarGames? D'oh!
And I REEEAAAAAALLLLLLYYY hope they include the 'Real World's Champion' angle when Flair entered the Fed back in 1991, because up to that point, I had never seen an angle bend 'fabe to that degree. To see Flair holding up both the NWA World Title Belt and the WWF Title belt at the Funeral Parlor on Superstars? Absolutely priceless. Unreal. And as a 12 year-old fan at that point, that angle had me at the point of butt-clenching excitement!!!
Okay, well... You get what I mean.
November 18th? I'm kissin' some Dead Presidents buh-bye for sure!

I think there will be more matches, and I'm guessing that some of those 6 easter eggs may be matches. The Flair-Whindam match is freaking awesome, and a great selection. I think it's good that both Flair-Steamboat matches are on there, as there is a lot of debate as to which is better. Plus, it gets across the idea of a classic series. I still think they will be adding some WWF matches, like Flair vs. Savage from Mania, Flair vs. Hennig (Loser leaves town), and Flair dropping the title to bret. There is more room on this DVD for great matches, I don't think this is everything.
I'll admit, I popped for Rhyno, until I spotted the guy in the front row joining in on the "holy sh*t" chant while giving his kid earmuffs over his ears, then I started to laugh. I hope he gets a nice last run again.
