WWE: Taboo Tuesday 2005
1 New from
This PPV consists of a pretty bad undercard, the Diva Battle Royal was entertaining but more eye candy value than anything else, Batista vs Coach was ok but a let down as Batista just filled in for Stone Cold who ended up backing out, Mankind vs Carlito was good, not brilliant but good, the show picked up once it got to the Cage Match.
Ric Flair and Triple H put on an epic encounter, it was old school and it was great, that match alone makes this PPV worth a purchase, the main event was good, John Cena defended the WWE Championship against Kurt Angle and Shawn Michaels in a Triple Threat Match, HBK and Angle carried this match, Cena did the usual reverals, getting beat down and using his five moves and the result of the match was as a lot of Cena matches predictable but still a good match that ended a decent PPV.
WWE: King Of The Ring 1995 / 1996
Okay so King Of The Ring 1995 was a poor event, a poor tournament and a poor main event, worth having if you are a collector.
King Of The Ring 1996 is a different story though, thw tournament was decent and i think by now people should know who won it, this was the birth of Austin 3:16, also i must add that it had a decent match between Mankind & Undertaker, a great main event in Shawn Michaels vs British Bulldog.
Buy it for KOTR 1996 not so much 95.
WWE: Unforgiven 2003
Now first of all this is far from being a well remembered event, i think what makes people speak badly of it is that fact that main event between Goldberg & Triple H quite frankly was awful, Goldberg was never a good wrestler & Triple H was visibly hurting.
If you can ignore the main event then this is a decent if not great PPV with two matches that really stand out, Shane McMahon & Kane in a Last Man Standing Match was very good and Randy Orton vs Shawn Michaels was great.
I can only say do not buy this PPV for an epic main event but buy it for a decent under card.
WWE: King Of The Ring 1999 & 2000 (2 Discs)

King Of The Ring 99 was a very good event if you ignore the actual King Of The Ring Tournament, it was great for two matches that stand out, first one being Undertaker vs The Rock for the WWE Championship and the other one being a Handicap Ladder Match with Stone Cold taking on Shane McMahon & Vince McMahon, not one of the best matches of all time but Austin taking on McMahon was always fun.
King Of The Ring 2000 was not so great, on paper it should have been a great tournament but with rushed matches it just felt like a let down, the main event featured Triple H, Shane McMahon & Vince McMahon against The Rock, Kane & Undertaker, it was not a great match but a slight saving grace.
I rated this 5 stars as for the price you get two good PPV's one which is very good and one that was not too good, still a good purchase though.
WWE: Cyber Sunday 2007

Cyber Sunday 2007 was a good PPV, matches such as Randy Orto vs Shawn Michaels was simply building up towards Survivor Series of that same year, Triple H vs Umaga was a good brutal match, Rey Mysterio vs Finlay was decent with a great spot but the best part was the main event between Undertaker & Batista, picking up from their feud earlier in the year, a great match and a PPV well worth the buy.
WWE: No Way Out 2000 / Backlash 2000
3 New from
2000 was an excellent year for WWE even though Stone Cold was out for the best part, here you are getting two excellent PPV's either side of Wrestlemania 16.
No Way Out 2000 does very well in building up to Wrestlemania, a good opener between Chris Jericho & Kurt Angle, a great main event between Cactus Jack & Triple inside Hell In A Cell, everything else in between is decent, Big Show vs The Rock was shorter than expected but worked in the build up to Wrestlemania 16.
Backlash 2000 was all promoted with the appearance of Stone Cold who has been out of action since Survivor Series the year before, The Rock vs Triple H was an epic match with explosive action and an awesome ending, another notable top match at Backlash was Chris Benoit against Chris Jericho, the other matches are decent too but that deserves a specific mention.
All in all two excellent PPV's for the price of one, you'll not be dissapointed with this purchase.
WWE: Unforgiven 2002
This was a decent PPV, it just seemed like more of a stop gap going into No Mercy, without giving away the ending of the PPV i remember being very let down in the result but don't let that put you off as the match between Brock Lesnar & Undertaker was a very good one.
Other matches worths mentioning are are RVD against Triple H, Eddie Guerrero against Edge was a great match but over shadowed by their Smackdown encounter soon after and you know that whenever Kurt Angle takes on Chris Benoit you are going to get an epic wrestling match.
I gave it 4 stars because of the bad ending but in retrospect it made sense going into No Mercy, besides that bad point a must for any collector.

Before getting this game i read over a bunch of mixed reviews, the bad reviews saying about the amount of travel and lack of save points, i now own the game and can see that those reviews are utter rubbish, the travel makes it all the more real, a car is never too far away plus there are bus stop points to quicker travel, also i was not expecting many safe house's to save a game but as far i have come across plenty.
I am very happy to have got this game as its just an excellent open world FPS, its no Call Of Duty but it does not try to be, the only connection is that it is a FPS, an excellent alternative to anything else there is.

WWE- The Most Powerfull Families In Wrestling (2 Discs)

This DVD has a great documentary which talks about families in wrestling such as the Orton's, Hart's, Funk's and so on, it also has a lot of extra matches, some not that great, some pretty decent.
For 5.99 if you are a wrestling fan and want a bargain then you should get this, well worth the price, you will not be dissapointed.
