Hell in a Cell 1998 was on the King of the Ring set.

Also, having looked at the full list of contents, I've come to the decision that I must own this set.

And it was also on the HiaC set and Mick Foley's set as well, but I wouldn't have minded it be on this one, it's one of the signature moments of the Era.

Oh yeah, I'm definitely getting the Blu Ray, I don't wanna miss any of it. I was just bummed about the This is Your Life missing. I mean, I saw it live, and I remember it well, so it's not like I'm missing out, but still. It was a big moment and it should have been included.

I remember awhile back there were complaints of the same matches appearing over and over. Perhaps that's why certain matches aren't here

Picked up the Attitude Era set today, and I gotta tell ya, it felt like I took a time machine back to my teenage years, because all the memories of that era came flooding back to me. This is when I came into wrestling, and for me, it's pretty much the era that defined me as a fan.

And again, it's real nice to see it uncensored without any blurring or audio bleeps. :)

I picked up the blu-ray set, and watched it almost in 1 sitting, with a 4 hour break between the 2 discs. It was good, everything on there was relevant. I already remembered most of the moments, as I used to videotape some segments (Austin's and Rock's mainly) every Monday and Thursday night. I had 9 VHS tapes full of that stuff from December 1997 to March 2001. Too bad I lost them when I moved in 2005, they would have been great to keep around. The only complaint I have of this set is that they could have put more stuff on there that was memorable. But, I have no problem with anything that's on there now. With the nWo set that came out 2 weeks ago and this, I pretty much have my wrestling heyday covered. I became a fan in 1996, so I still got a taste of the "old" style, but the Attitude Era was the big deal. I remember, I quit watching after 2001 when Austin became a heel, and never really kept up with it regularly since. I usually watch from the Royal Rumble to WrestleMania and then get away from it until the next RR. I haven't missed much.

I am curious some of the toning down has to do with concussions, like the NFL?

My only problem with it is the fact that several things that I would have liked to see (the unholy union between Stephanie and the Undertaker in particular) are Blu-Ray exclusives only. While this might want me to finally buy one, I shouldn't feel I have to in order to get what is essentially the same content just because it has a few extra bits.

Yeah, I guess it's all about marketing. I have a PS3 and watch blu-rays on that. I think they're worth it. They look an sound better and are just a few dollars more.
