The Best of WWE Confidential, Vol. 1

WWE
BEST OF CONFIDENTIAL VOL. 1

Now I know you have to remember this show where the WWE let us take a look behind the scenes and even did a few shoots. You would get a few funny things and even looks at the past so over all it was a good show. It didn't run very long from what I remember but still it was good for what it was.

1.Eric Bischoff joins WWE-the title says it all really and man do I remeber this, this was such a huge moment. I was so happy that this happened you have no idea, I always liked Eric on screen, he seemed like such a jerk, I love it still.

2.The Stone Cold Situation-this of course is when Austin walked away from the WWE when they wanted him to face Brock. Stone Cold felt that a match between them two should have been a PPV match with build behind it. I stil remember Rock dissing him for this on Raw.

3.Kurt Angle's Olympic Training-this is an interesting one as Jurt goes back to where he trained and competed for the Olympics in 1996.

4.Hoops Competition-this is just a funny little basketball thing that is short but fun.

5.Davey Boy Smith-a segment on the late great British Bulldog, one of my all time favorites, shame he never got to hold the WWF title.

6.Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka-another segment on a wrestler, this time on the Superfly himself, another guy who should have been WWF champ at some point. He should have at least held the I-C title.

7.Bobby "The Brain" Heenan-here we get a look at another great Hall of Famer, The Brain Bobby Heenan. one of the greatest managers, commentators, and personalities in wrestling history.

8.D-Generation X Invades Norfolk-of course any wrestling fan born before the Cena era remembers this event. Raw and Nitro were right down the street from each other basically so DX riding a military vehicle drove down to the WCW event on the attack.

9.Demise of WCW-I know most people were happy with WCW being shut down but for me it was always kind of a sad moment. WCW had some great matches and huge moments as this segment showcased. But in the later years the quality was going down hill. Honestly when Bret was put out of action and Randy Savage left I knew it was over.

10.History of WCW Championship-a showcasing of some of the moments involving the WCW title.

11.WCW Champions-a showing of some of the people who held the title

12.Regal's Reptiles-Regal showing off his pets here

13.Trish's House-remember tha show cribs, well here is WWE's version with Trish, nice house.

14.3 Generations of Ortons-obvious what this segment was about, can you guess.

15.Samoan Family Tree-it is surprising how many people they let you know are related here, and the story of Yoko helping out another famous wrestler is excellent.

16.World's Oldest Wrestling Fan-one of the coolest things I have ever seen, a woman turing 107 years old tells us about how big a wrestling fan she is, she even gets a message from The Rock.

17.Booker T meets Levon Kirkland-The Book meeting a footbal player and getting the tour from him.

18.Bret vs Shawn Michaels The Montreal Screw Job 1997-the infamous event that still to this day is talked about, i still remember when this was aired. Shawn finally came clean with what really happened, my brother flipped out when this came out, he is Bret's biggest fan ever.

Matches

1.JIMMY SNUKA VS RAY STEVENS-great match featuring the Superfly himself and if you ever wondered where the clip of him saying "New York, I Love You Baby" came from this is it. The match is a fun one with the crowd eating up everything Snuka did. Good match with Stevens working on Snuka's body a lot while Jimmy just took it to him.

2.[I-C TITLE]BRET HART VS BRITISH BULLDOG-now if you are a wrestling fan then you know this match. This is a classic and still one of my favorite matches ever, and it was also the only time the I-C title was the main event of a PPV. These two really put forth their best effort in front of Davey's home crowd. The action is great with a back and forth battle all the way to the end. Bulldog of course gets the title in the end but Bret looked just as great in defeat.

3.[WWF TITLE]BRET HART VS SHAWN MICHAELS-ah yes the match that everyone remembers, infamous it is. This would be the last match the two ever had and that is obviously because of the screw job that happened. But prior to the ending this was a really fun match. The first half is even before the bell rings, just a good old fashioned brawl. The two throw punches in bunches and nail each other and the refs in the process. When they finally do make it back to the ring the fight continues, a brawl in the guise of a wrestling match. Great action and pace make this a really good one, it makes you wish that they would not have come to what was the ending.

4.[TITLE VS TITLE MATCH]SCOTT STEINER VS BOOKER T-this was on the final WCW Monday Night Nitro and was a title for title match. Scott came in as the Champ while Booker was U.S. Champ, fitting opening match I guess from that night since it was called "Night of Champions. The match is actually much better than I remembered for some reason. These two guys are two guys that never got what they deserved when they came to the WWE. I have to believe it is because they didn't jump ship for Vince, they stayed in WCW until the end. This is a fast paced match with good spots showcasing each other's signature moves. Booker would end up being the last WCW U.S. & World Champ after hitting a Bookend.

Over all I would say that this is a good purchase if you can find it cheap. This mainly for a collector now more so than when it was released. Remember this was before the documentaries and stuff that WWE releases now. So this was at the time the only way to get the behind the scenes stuff.

this sounds interesting and Trish on the cover is a plus. I did not know that about Stone and Brock...
