    I hope that the WWF Scratch logo isn't censored on Wrestlemania 14-18, but I have a feeling it will be. For $300 this box set should perfect.

    I'll definitely get the 1-21 set, assuming each of the events are uncut. It'd be nice to finally replace the 'Legacy' VHS collection I currently own. I'd love to see extras on these discs also such as original promos, PPV commercials, etc. Press conferences of each event would be stellar as well, especially for the early events. The price is a bit steep (it'll be closer to $400 here in Canada) but it'll be well worth it.

    Well the Bret Hart set is a must for me and the Jake The Snake set should be pretty good as well. Not sure on the WM's discs though. Of the ones not available on DVD, X and 14 are the ones that really scream out for a purchase from me but the set might be worth it.

    Come on Casey. 15 is worth owning just to see Bart Gunn nearly decapitated by Butterbean.[​IMG]

    Too bad the scratch logo will have to be blurred, and all verbal references to the "WWF" will have to be blanked out.

    I had never really noticed the verbal references get blanked out that much until I watched the Road Warriors set. It's pretty prevalent during the various promos on that set.

    So, when can we expect sets devoted to Bruno Sammartino, Bobo Brazil, Gorilla Monsoon and the other WWWF greats?

    I hope they got the Jessie Ventura thing cleared for these, cause it would not be fun to hear one sided commentaries like on various WCW matches on the WWE dvds.

    This is true, but Bossman/Undertaker Hell in a Cell is really really terrible. Gunn getting knocked 6 ways from sunday might be entertaining, but its also really short. Although I do laugh out loud when I think of it.

    I wonder if the Wrestlemania sets will be loaded with extras. I hope so.

    If they do a Bruno set, he probably won't be involved. He's been very critical of the WWF/E and Vince since the Attitude era. He's met with the McMahon's in recent years and was asked to be part of the Hall of Fame ceremony but he declined.

    You are not the only one.

    My first WM was 3...It will always be my favorite. First time I'd seen blood was the Hercules aftermath. "He may have won the battle but Hercules won the war" was the line by Ventura...Steamboat vs. Savage. What can you say? It really un-nerves me when teenagers talk about wrestling at these wrestling forums and insist that Austin/Rock is the best Wrestlemania match of all time....Ughh....Steamboat/Savage was pure poetry. GREAT storyline leading up to it too.

    I hope Bret Hart is involved in some capacity with the DVD that is profiling his career. It would be a more well rounded and comprehensive DVD if he gave his perspective on things. Considering the hostility that exists between Bret Hart and Vince McMahon that might be wishful thinking.

    Really excited about the Bret Hart DVD.

    back in the olden days it was great to see the Steamboat/Savage storyline unfold over time. Still the best match in my book
