Not sure who they are pm'ing, although Best Buy's website has a picture of the blu-ray for the dvd version(until you click on it and then it shows the dvd cover).
May put it an order for it and the Clash of Champions blu-ray.
As for the video posted above of Flair/Steamboat, it just makes me long for the good 'ole days of wrasslin.

Who uses the word "turd" in a legitimate way?
"Turd" is trending worldwide.

"What!?" is one of the shittiest things to happen to wrestling.
The fans - who really never completely bought Heel Austin - recognized the cue and it fell into a peepee-soaked heckhole. Didn't help that Austin didn't abort it when it was starting to get over. Now the crowd has got it into their heads that anytime there is an audible pause during a promo, they are obliged to yell it out. It has become the ultimate destroyer of promos.
I can't even fathom the classic promos that would be ruined if they had to deal with today's crowd. WWE will have to go back to having pre-recorded promos with Superstars standing in front of a bluescreen with a wacky static backdrop logo and slightly awkward zooming in and out.
...actually somebody should do that for laughs. I elect Santino by default.

Honest, to the point, and accurate. No silly burns, minimal goofiness. Problem with it is twofold:
1) He just laid out the perfect case for Rock being the heel in the match. How can a self-respecting fan support The Rock after hearing Cena's promo? What did Cena say about The Rock that was inaccurate?
2) 24 hours removed from a 2-3 month feud with Kane in which Cena learned to "embrace the hate" or whatever, and we've already forgotten about it. It didn't happen, it doesn't exist. Meh.

LMFAO at Punk saying one of the EMTs looked like Buck F'ing Zumhoffe.

nice to see Cena recycle the same exact shit he was saying about the rock for the last year more shockingly enough is that people thought it was a good promo. lmao

Kin wrestled as Well & Dunn as well as the Southern Rockers, and was part ot the Glamour Boys in WWC in Puerto Rico were he was incredibly over. He also teamed with his Well Dunn/Southern Rockers partner Steve Doll in the Pacific Northwest and USWA in the '90s. He retired in 2002 after suffering an injury while working in Puerto Rico.

The "what" thing was fucking annoying but I did get a small laugh out of what had to be a fat drunk guy relentlessly yelling shit at Undertaker ("RETIRE!!"). Undertaker honestly did seem a little rusty when he first walked out there and started talking, but he was fine once H showed up. The delivery of some of his lines was the closest he's been to the biker schtick in a while. ("Hey businessman," the coward line, line about Shawn, etc.). I actually like that song ok considering it's post-heyday Metallica, but it definitely wouldn't be my first choice for that feud.

Yeah @jpworld , I'd love to be part of HIAC in some way..maybe as guest ref, or as commentator. Just an honor to be part of UT's last match.
Posted 21 February 2012 - 04:34 AM
We probably all knew this but Mick will probably take some heat for it anyway..
Someone asked about that.
I'm only guessing that it will be The Undertaker's last match, @Str8EdgeSean . Believe me, I have NO inside info. But it would make sense.

Hard to tell but it looks like Barrett's arm gets caught under Zigger's leg/knee, looks broken from when he first starts slamming the ground in pain as its moving at an awkward angle.

BREAKING NEWS: @WadeBarrett suffered an injury to his left arm during tonight's Battle Royal and was rushed to a nearby medical facility.

Count me among those not impressed with Cena's promo.
cena can do no right, Undertaker can do no wrong and using Metallica is a great idea.

John Cena > The Rock
Sarcasm detector going haywire right now

Timothy A. Smith, aka Timothy Well from the early '90s tag team Well Dunn, passed away today. The WWC's Facebook page announced the news, without disclosing the cause of death. He was 48 years old.
Whelp...heaven has another undercard tag team.
