WWE – Unreleased: Never Before Seen Matches (DISC THREE)

WWE – Unreleased: Never Before Seen Matches
1986-1995
Disc Three

AT FIRST GLANCE: We pick up where we left off on disc two at WrestleMania 9. The 1993 stuff (besides one glaringly obvious match) looks pretty weak, but you never know. I’m interested in seeing these two ladder matches. Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart teaming up against Jerry Lawler and Hakushi could be a hidden gem. No matter what, this should be a fun way to wrap up the set.

Your hosts are Charly Caruso and Sean Mooney.

WWE – Unreleased: Never Before Seen Matches (DISC ONE)

WWE – Unreleased: Never Before Seen Matches
1986-1995
Disc One

I haven’t completed a DVD recap in a while and this one looked pretty interesting, so I thought I would give it a shot. Heck, I haven’t purchased a WWE DVD in forever, so you know this had to have peaked my interest on some level.

AT FIRST GLANCE: Disc one covers the 1980s portion of the set and creeps into 1990 a little bit. Some of the tag matches could be interesting. On disc one, I’m most interested in the handicap match between Hogan and Savage against the Hart Foundation and the Honky Tonk Man. I think that could possibly be a hidden gem. The Powers of Pain against the Rockers could be promising as well. While this doesn’t surprise me that it’s part of the set because it’s WWE, I’m scratching my head over why they would think we would want to sit through Andre the Giant and Big John Studd — in 1989. Nevertheless, let’s get at it.

Being the night before Halloween, Todd Pettengill does his best Dracula impression while describing what happened last week in the corniest way possible. If this is how they want to handle Halloween, then maybe they really shouldn’t bring back the Halloween Havoc PPV series. At least creepy Tony Schiavone inviting children into his home was funny.
