Hey, all. Just got back from a business trip to Manhattan, and of course the predominant thing on my mind was `what obscure wrestling DVD's can I find this time?'
Last few times I was down there, I was able to get my hands on some ECW, mid-South and other fairly obscure stuff. This time, nothing. The closest I could find this time was the Shawn Michaels From The Vault one, which is only obscure in the sense that I haven't seen it sold in Toronto yet.
So, just wondering: any tips on where I could find good stuff in and around the Manhattan area? Tried all the main stops -- Virgin Megastore, FYE, all the Times Square stuff, plus a few smaller places -- but found nothing. Going to be headed back sometime this fall, so I want to be prepared this time. Any of you have advice for me?

I haven't been there in a few years, but J & R used to have old UWF (Abrams) tapes, so they may have other obscure wrestling tapes/DVDs.

I couldn't tell you where to find good DVDs, but if you're interested in Video, I've stopped into Serendib Video a few times on 6th and I believe 25th. I've picked up a bunch of stuff from the WWF 92-94 era. Stuff like World Tour '92, Smack 'Em Whack 'Em, a Bret Hart video from around that time, as well as a Shawn Michaels video as well. The only place I've seen decent DVDs were at Suncoast Video in a mall near me, but outside of a re-release set which had old GWF stuff, it's been just the basic stuff.

They gotta bring these back!!!:

"...and that is the LAST WORD." - "The Big Nasty" Paul Wight
and of course: "Don't hate the playa...HATE THE GAME~!" - WCW World Champion Booker T

I don't know about NYC, but I have seen ECW and assorted other non WWE wrestling DVDs in FYE stores on Long Island.

Seriously, any awards should not go to "WM Movie Trailers" but should go to the WWE video package department. The Undertaker video was amazing, with great visuals, especially the lingering view of Diesel resting in peace.
