5.0 out of 5 stars Some really epic matches, but one small thing...., July 22, 2006
If you notice most of these matches have already been placed on, "Best Of" DVDs, hell.... I already have ALL of the third disk matches on different DVDs that I collected over the years! For me I am spliiting the collection with a friend of mine and am keeping the older matches while he gets the newer ones [new fan]
However if you are a new fan of wrestling, or who doesn't mind buying matches you already own [like me] this is still a strongly recommended DVD collection

Heres the list of matches:

DISK 1

Ivan Koloff vs. Pedro Morales

Bruno Sammartino vs. Killer Kowalski

Bruno Sammartino vs. "Superstar" Billy Graham

"Superstar" Billy Graham vs. Bob Backlund

Bob Backlund vs. Greg Valentine

Bob Backlund vs. Sgt. Slaughter

Iron Sheik vs. Hulk Hogan

Steel Cage Match
Hulk Hogan vs. King Kong Bundy

Steel Cage Match
Hulk Hogan vs. "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff

Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant [Wrestlemania 3]

Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant

Randy "Macho Man" Savage vs. Hulk Hogan

DISK 2

Wrestlemania
Hulk Hogan vs. The Ultimate Warrior [Champion vs. Champion]

Summerslam 94
Steel Cage Match
Owen Hart vs. Bret Hart [One of the best steel cage matches ever! After the match all of Bret and Owen's family members try to climb the cage to stop Owen from beating up Bret, its pretty crazy.]

Wrestlemania 12
Iron Man Match
Bret Hart vs. Shawn Michales [Great match but which longtime fan doesn't own this already?]

Mind Games
Shawn Michales vs. Mankind [Same comment for the Iron Man Match.

4.0 out of 5 stars An amazing production with very few flaws September 8, 2006
First, I want to thank the WWE for FINALLY letting Jim Ross host a DVD, especially one as important as this one. Jim Ross hosts this 3 disc retrospective look at the history of the WWE title. Most of the important moments are covered as Ross provides facts and information regarding the title's history inbetween select matches.

Before I get into the matches and the production, I want to comment on the DVD package. This DVD set is packaged in a high quality digipak that resembles a book. It also includes a foldout insert showing a detailed timeline of all the WWE champions, with info on their title wins. When you unfold this insert, you'll notice how few people have actually held the WWE title, it's a prestigous honor indeed.

Now, for the DVD matches themselves. Many have complained that too many of these matches have already been released a million times on DVD. This is true, however, there are some that are making their DVD debut, thus making the set worth picking up. Now, my only complaint is that I would have left off the Shawn Michaels vs Bret Hart Iron Man Match from WM XII, Shawn Michaels vs. Mankind from Mindgames INYH and the Rock vs. Triple H vs. Kurt Angle from SummerSlam 2000 and would have replaced them with Bret Hart vs. Ric Flair (Bret's first WWE Title win), the Rock's first WWE title win against Mankind in the Survivor Series tournament finals and the Iron Man Match between Kurt Angle and Brock Lesnar. All 3 of these matches would be making their DVD debuts, and in my opinion, really would've sparked interest in this set. For example, many (not just myself) feel that the Iron Man Match between Kurt Angle and Brock Lesnar from Smackdown! was perhaps the best match that both men had in the WWE.

3.0 out of 5 stars History of The WWE Championship Collection July 19, 2006
A Kid's Review
In my opinion, this will be one of the greatest collections that WWE has ever realeased.The History of The WWE Championship collection relives great moments such as Chris Jericho shocking the world and becoming the 1st ever Undisputed Champion, Steve Austin defeating Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania 14, Bret Hart fighting his little brother Owen in a Steel Cage Match, the wrestling clinic between Kurt Angle and Chris Benoit at Royal Rumble 2003, and a lot more.This collection is for all types of fans.If you like classic matches then look at Disc one, If you like the matches of the late 90s then look at Disc two, and if you like modern slobber knockers then look at Disc three.I recommend this collection to any WWE fan.Here is the entire card:

Disc One:

Pedro Morales vs. Ivan Koloff 2/8/71

Bruno Sammartino vs. Killer Kowalski 4/29/74

Bruno Sammartino vs. Superstar Graham 4/30/77

Hulk Hogan vs. Paul Orndorff 1/3/87

Disc Two

Hogan vs. Andre 2/5/88

Hogan vs. Randy Savage 4/2/89

Hogan vs. Ultimate Warrior 4/1/90

Bret Hart vs. Owen Hart cage match 8/29/94

Michaels vs. Mankind 9/22/96

I enjoyed watching some bout from when they took place, but several have been released on many other sets. Hopefully they bring out a second volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the WWE, just don't have time to follow it.
The WWE is very fun, but making the time to follow it can be challenging. This looks like (haven't watched it yet) a good compilation of WWE video.

I know this is old but I saw those choices & the problem is that all the choices given were matches already either released on previous DVD sets. The IronMan match you mentioned is on HBK's DVD.

Either way if another match was voted upon or not, they were ALL matches released on other DVD... Read More
