Editorial Reviews

It's the longest running weekly entertainment program on cable, with more than 17 years of shocking moments, outstanding matches, and more. However, other than the occasional match on other DVD sets, the WWE Universe has never been able to relive the early excitement of Monday Night Raw on DVD. Now, for the first time ever, the best matches and moments of Seasons 1 and 2 of Raw are collected in a DVD set.

I recently picked up WWE's Raw: The Beginnings: Best of Seasons 1 & 2. As an old school wrestling fan who clearly remembers the inception of Monday Night Raw, this set is a must have. As you may have noticed, the WWE has already released a few others DVDs featuring the early days of Raw (e.g. Raw 10th Anniversary; Raw 15th Anniversary). With Beginnings, however, the WWE has really nailed the formula in a comprehensive manner. This review will consider several aspects of the product, including packaging, menus, video/audio, the content itself, and other aspects as necessary.

The packaging really pops off the store shelf. The front cover prominently features a rare but spectacular photo of the Undertaker. Surrounding him are various other wrestlers including Yokozuna, Doink, HBK, and Bret Hart. The fact that Undertaker is center and enlarged definitely speaks to how he is regarded today as a legend that led the WWE into the future. The set itself is comprised of 4 DVD's, split into 2 different cases according to the year (1993 and 1994). The DVDs are well protected in a plastic flap, and a program of matches is included on the inside left cover. Packaging overall is extremely solid in terms of both function and visual appeal.

Despite the fancy packaging, the remainder of the product is no frills, but this is not a negative. Instead of including tons of filler interviews and commentary, the WWE packed in as many matches straight from Raw. As such, the menus are straightforward and simplistic. Perhaps the WWE was going for an early 90s unsophisticated approach. The menu includes three items: Play, Chapters, and Bonus Features (bonus features only available on 1993 discs). The menu music is confusing, as I do not recognize it.

For me, mid-1992 through late-1994 was a golden era of wrestling. Pro-wrestling has no "flare" to it, anymore. While gimmick wrestling has gone all but extinct, it definitely was part of what made the WWF interesting and exciting. Modern wrestling, while the technique has improved, doesn't stack up against the classic years; too many wrestlers using just throwaway generic names and dressing like regular people. It's just too bland now. Anyway, my point is that this DVD collection certainly brings back a lot of great memories. I recommend it for any fan of this period of WWF. The only downside for this collection was that I realized how much less "grand" the arenas and venues were than I had remembered from my childhood. Now, if only we could get quality discs from the attitude era; instead of edited versions.

Just got this DVD set in the mail yesterday. I have already watched almost all of it. This is a great DVD set, which has a bunch of matches with many classic & legendary wrestlers from the WWF era.Quiet a few classic matches too. Matches like a I quit match between Ric Flair & Mr.Perfect, a lumberjack match between Hacksaw Jim Duggan vs. Shawn Micheals,ect.... The cover art is awesome in my opinion. And I like that they didn't blur or change the WWF logo at all. However, they do blur out a kid giving Lex Luger the finger literally right in his face, ha ha ha. You'll see wrestling from: Macho Man Randy Savage,Razor Ramon,Ric Flair,Bam Bam Bigelow,Mr.Perfect,Kamala,Doink The Clown,Shawn Micheals,Brett Hitman Hart,Krush,Yokozuna,1-2-3 Kid,Undertaker,Damien Dimento,IRS,The Million Dollar Man,Brutus The Barber Beefcake,Rick The Model Martel, and others!!! This is a great DVD & in my opinion a must have for all wrestling fans (especially of the WWF era)! My 9yr old son has loved this DVD set too!
