I don't. The only pre-2007 WWE release I own is "Tombstone: The History of the Undertaker", and there's no Benoit matches on that. (Did they ever work together?) I'd like to think that there may be a change with regard to Benoit, since he appears in two clips in the Best of Nitro set, though not in any wrestling capacity, but I doubt it'll ever happen. Maybe I can find some used DVD's at a shop or something...


I know he's not excluded from the Royal Rumble set that was released in 2007. It came out right around the time he did what he did, but everything of him is still included, probably because it was printed and distributed before it happened.

Rodimus Prime wrote:Also, since The Streak is being released on DVD, does that mean it's over? It would be stupid to have this set and then he has another match at WMXXIX. Unless it's a loss.


It's pretty obvious that Taker's done as a full time wrestler, and I wouldn't be surprised if there's a retirement announcement by the end of the year.


No, I think if he's gonna retire it will be at WrestleMania. He won't just fade away, unless they're keeping some serious injury a secret, and based on his performance at WMXXVIII, it doesn't seem so. He will get his retirement match on the "grandest stage." Anything else would be less than fitting. That's why I think he will end the Streak with a loss to someone. I just hope they won't blow it and give the opportunity to someone who can take it a long way. NOT Cena, or Daniel Bryan. Maybe Orton? Or Sheamus? Or even Punk?

As for RAW, the Laurinaitis angle has become ridiculous. I am the same way as CB, I won't watch anymore unless this guy is off TV. He's not even fun to hate. He's like Cole was last year. And what the hell is the WWE thinking anymore with Cena? Losing to Rock? Good. Then Lesnar comes in and becomes probably the WWE's biggest drawing card instantaneously, and what happens? He gets buried by Cena, only to have Cena lose to this failed wrestler turned suit? Seriously? I really hope fans leave in droves and hurt Vince in his wallet. That's the only thing that will snap them out of this crap and force them to put on quality stuff. And they're saying Raw will be 3 hours long starting with the 1000th show? What are they gonna fill 3 hours with? They can't even fill 2 with good stuff. At least Orton is somewhat back in the title picture. I like Punk and Sheamus, but Orton has to be a champion. He's the future of this company, not Cena or Punk.

That's a little harsh, don't you think? I mean, I was never a big fan of Cole's hell turn last year, and I agree that Laurinaitis isn't even fun to hate, but all comparing Laurinaitis' current thing with that does is make Cole's heel turn look like the best idea since sliced cheese.

Though I will admit that I agree with what Cena said: bring back the computer already. Even on its worst day, it's still ten times more exciting that what they're doing now.

I watched Raw on YouTube just to see what Vince would do and because I had 2 hours to waste. It was awesome to see Vader back, even if his timing was a bit off and if it was just for one night. He didn't seem to be any smaller, even though it looked like he was less muscular and more flabby. And am I the only one who's bothered that he's not wearing his red-on-black outfit he had in the 90s?

I caught Raw this week, too. It's says a lot about the state of the roster when a nostalgia star can get a bigger pop than anyone else.

Sadly, I don't think Vince learned his lesson from the Over the Limit disaster. By saying that Show has to win or else Laurinaitis will get fired, he has, once again, given away the ending of the match @ the PPV. Because, as much as we might like it, Laurinaitis will NOT get fired. And by saying that Cena will get fired if Show wins, it means that there's going to be some kind of screwjob in the finish, since Cena isn't going to get fired either.

I watched some of this past weeks show and hated how they kept teasing with vince saying "you're fired".. Of course they would not do it on TV, they have to build up for the one of a billion PPV's per year.

I remember the good old days when there was 4 PPVs a year... Saturday nights main event and champions that held the belts for a couple years at a time.. Such fun times with wrestling back then..

I sure hope this laurenitus angle is over soon.. I can't stand to look at him or hear his voice..

I've learned too much lately that no one would do anything great without later doing something incredibly moronic. I'm not holding my breath.

As much as I didn't like him, and as much as I'm happy to see him gone, having Cena beat him down was pointless. That time could have been better spent showcasing someone that wasn't Cena.

Oh and it seems to go against their whole "B.A. Star" anti-bullying campaign ... but that's a whole different discussion.

I think Heyman's strut/stomp is even better than Vince's swagger.

And that segment with Slater, Lauper, Richter and Piper was horrible. If only Richter didn't dress the way she did, it would have been better. I wonder what "blast from the past" will beat down Slater next week...

I actually found it pretty funny. Though, once again, it says a lot about the current state of the WWE when a nostalgia star gets a bigger pop than anyone on the current roster.

So I have a question. The last month local boy Heath Slater has been squashed by Vader and Sid, along with getting framed by Piper and Lauper. Is he being jobed out because the corp trusts him to make the stars of yesteryear look good or just they don't have anything else for him.

What the hell was that pole match? They basically pissed on over 40 years of history, any idiot knows that if the item comes down off the pole without it being in control of someone it, GOES BACK UP; YOU STOP THE ACTION FOR A MINUTE AND IT GOES BACK UP!

Meh. Moot point. Besides, when was the last time a pole match took place? It's been way overshadowed by spectacles like MitB. The scramble for the contract was quite amusing, though. And it was great to see Sid back, still being able to do some cool stuff. He still has the best looking powerbomb. Too bad it was a 1-shot. After Bret Hart, he was my favorite wrestler of the 90s to watch. His matches weren't spectacular, but for some reason I found them very good. Him beating HBK at Survivor Series was one of my top 3 favorite WWE moments of all time.

Sid was the best part of the show but he needs to shave, his face looked off the entire time. I'm also happy he didn't hurt himself again. Correct me if I'm wrong but this was his first televised match since he broke his leg?

His face looked off because he's old. :lol: He's over 50. And I believe this was his first televised match in 13 years, yes.

Probably too much partying on Fozzy's "European Tour".

Still, regardless of how he looked, he shut Cena up long enough for Vicky to come out and continue to drown Cena out. Historic announcement? pffffft. Historic would be announcing you're taking time off to deal with your divorce issues.

We would've heard about that earlier in the day, like when Edge had to retire.

Jericho was on suspension for 30 days due to him kicking the Brazilian flag while they were on tour there. They used the Fozzy bit to cover it up.

I was actually hoping he'd come out carrying the flag. :lol:

So Raw 1000 has been and gone, don't feel it really lived up to the hype.

3 hours, and only one Diva match, that being Lita and Friends beating up on Heath Slater. After this, Slater deserves a shot at the IC title or something.

Was good to see the full DX.

You knew Heyman was in trouble when he kept bad mouthing HHH's kids ... always good to see Steph and Heyman go at it.

AJ as GM? Has potential.

And you also knew that as soon as the goons started surrounding Kane, the lights were going to go out. Brothers of Destruction!

Cena/Punk ... little disappointed. I wanted to see a clean finish. But I guess this way it sets up feuds down the track. Do we call this a heel turn for Punk? Some might, I would imagine he's pissed off that "Dwayne" can be a very part-time wrestler and get a title match at the Rumble.

Overall ... meh. Hopefully this extra hour isn't going to be filled with Touts and other social media crap.
