Something tells me they wouldn't include the "Steve-amania" stuff on an Austin disc.
Does anyone know whatever happened to Shane McMahon's plan to let people select matches from a list and make custom DVDs? I remember the Beastie Boys did this with a music CD a couple years ago. It seems like a smark's wet dream.
That brings up an interesting pooint though: Once WWE 100% legally owns all of the ECW tapes, do they also own all of the images contianed on them? Meaning, the voice Joey Styles is probably on like 99% of ECW's matches, if not all of them. If they put together a bunch of old ECW matches for a DVD, can Joey sue them again?
Originally posted by CANADIAN BULLDOGEven if they decide against doing `best of' type multi-disc DVD's (though I for one love them and already have most of the WWE offerings), they could do sort of grab-bags with assorted matches from all three feds, even if they had no theme tying them together (a la Coliseum's Best of the WWF series).
I mean, if you could buy comps with three or four decent matches from each group, plus a bunch of other assorted nonsense, think how many volumes they could produce of those?
I love that idea, it's like a Mix-tape of wrestling matches. I would buy that over most of the old PPV discs where more than half or some of the matches suck. To stick old classic promos from sucky angles between the matches would pique some intrest in me.
Rather than a simple 24-hour cable channel, I wonder if Vince isn't getting things together for a few years down the track when Video-On-Demand is more integrated into cable/satellite systems. I could see at some point when the tech is there the offering say 2 hours of anything you want from the WWE libraries for $3.99 or something like that. I know I would from time to time make use of that.
I'd assume that it is geared toward the younger audience that watches TV on Saturday mornings rather than Monday nights. Mind you, I don't think it's a very successful direction to go, but I think that would be the thought process.
