DVD Review - WWE: The Best Of Intercontinental Championship (2004)

WWE's Best Of Intercontinental Championship is not a new DVD release, but rather it's a re-issue of an old Colosseum Video compilation from 1993, featuring five matches from 1992-93. Beyond that, it's a very barebones, very basic release with no additional features or bonuses of note. For what it's worth, you're getting the following matches.

- IC Champion Shawn Michaels vs. Crush from a '93 show in England.

- IC Champion Bret Hart vs. Skinner from a 1992 episode of Prime Time Wrestling and pretty much the oldest match on the tape/disc by virtue of featuring Bret Hart as the champion.

- IC Champion Shawn Michaels vs. Marty Janetty from a July '93 episode of RAW.

- IC Champion Shawn Michaels vs. Mr. Perfect from Summerslam '93.

- IC Champion Shawn Michaels vs. "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan from a May '93 episode of RAW.

THE GOOD: Well, it was a relatively cheap DVD. I think I only payed about ten bucks for this thing. Also, if you're an HBK fan, you have a nice collection of matches from his first two IC title reigns. The matches against Janetty and Perfect are the highlights.

THE BAD: It's a straight-up re-release of an old Colosseum Video release with no extra bits and very basic menus to navigate. Not only that, but there's only five matches and other than the two I mentioned in the "good" segment, the rest of the matches aren't exactly worthy of being dubbed the best of anything.

OVERALL: For a cheap re-release, it's something for old-timers. But anyone who wants a collection of good Intercontinental championship matches should probably get the History Of The IC Championship DVD set that was released years later, where there's not only more (better) matches, but there's also variety, which this re-release lacks.
