We promised you plenty of reviews this week and here is a double dose for your eyes. WWE Entertainment recently provided us with a few DVDs to review and they were great. “Allied Powers: The World’s Greatest Tag Teams” DVD set is full of nostalgic and current WWE tag teams. The commentary of the series was done by John Morrison and The Miz, and Bill Simmons was right, there is a lot of unintentional comedy.
The “Allied Powers” set is three-discs long and has so many good matches. You have matches by Degeneration X, The Hart Foundation, The Killer Bees, The Kozlov Brothers, Demolition, The Fabulous Freebirds, The Legion of Doom, The Smoking Gunns, The Dudley Boys, and many more. You have pretty much any notable tag team from AWA, WCW, WWE, ECW, and World Class Wrestling. There are plenty of matches and also a lot of highlights featuring certain tag teams. You can really get lost watching the matches, I wanted to go grab my WWF thumb-wrestlers and re-create a matches with my Hillbilly Jim and Junkyard Dog figures. Okay, not really, but it’s a must-buy for any WWE fan that has watched wrestling for any amount of years.
WWE’s Summerslam Anthology Vol. 3 & Vol. 4 contains every Summerslam from 1998 to 2007, each volume contains five years of Summerslam Pay-Per-Views. The entire Anthology was released last year, but by breaking it up into volumes, fans can save money and only get certain years without buying the entire 20 year anthology set.
As I stated before, I have watched the WWE since I was old enough to walk. I grew up with Hulk Hogan and Ivan Putski, I think of myself as a critic of the sport as well. The Summerslam series from 1998-2007 has some of the best matches from any Summerslam. Hulk Hogan vs. Shawn Michaels was probably my personal favorite. Summerslam has always been a staple of their Pay-Per-Views, but during 98-07, it became their #2 PPV, just behind Wrestlemania. The matches are great and worth the money by purchasing these volumes, because it also cheaper than buying each PPV on DVD individually.
You can buy these items at WWE Shop Zone or where WWE merchandise is sold.
