Julian Connelly looks at latest WWE and Wrestling releases in his regular review column: The Turnbuckle.
What does everybody want?
Head to the nearest man cave, give your boss a Stone Cold salute and spend the next six hours watching The Attitude Era Vol.2, the hottest set to be released since Sable’s handprint bikini. If you are old enough to order a Steve-Weiser, “Hello ladies” was your pick up line in college and you loved WWE before “Federation” became the new “F” word, then here is what you need to do. Take this all new collection, shine it up real nice, flip it sideways and stick it straight up… your DVD player!! Oh, you didn’t know? Volume 2 includes:
– 30 unfiltered matches ranging from WWE Championship bouts to rare classics from RAW, SmackDown, Heat and much more.
– The entire once in a lifetime cast from the rebellious to the demonic, the iconic, and the just plain weird.
– Delicious Divas breaking WWE hearts and boundaries.
– Vignettes taking you inside the APA’s “office”, behind the Walls of Jericho, aboard The Godfather’s Ho’ Train and much more!
It’s part 2 of the most watched, most controversial and most violent era of WWE history! Relive the rise of Austin 3:16, The Rock, Triple H and many more!
The press release would imply this is a brilliant release, sadly this is not the case. It really feels second rate to volume one which was a good effort. The main issue here is that there isn’t that much really good material left to show after the first release, so to try and mix it up a little there is comments from the stars of the time talking through the angles prior to you watching them. This Is quite a good idea as the likes of Xpac,Edge,The Godfather and the Rock amounts others provide a good background to the content, however it goes no where near far enough to make up for the substandard content on show. There is 6 hours of content to wade though, it’s far too padded.
You get a further not so good 10 matches and some very small sections mainly on the APA and The Godfather. Nothing of value here.
Save you money don’t buy this. You would get much better value from the Sting release, or the excellent Summer-slam.
On DVD & Blu-Ray from Monday 3rd Nov. 2014
