The History of WWE: 50 Years of Sports Entertainment dvd

I remember when I was about 11 years old; my history teacher Mrs Mearden teaching my class about the Spanish Armada and telling us it was one of the biggest naval fleets ever assembled. At that point Ruth Gilpin, who was born and raised in Spain, put up her hand and told us that when she was taught the subject in Spain, that they were taught that it was a dozen or so old dilapidated ships and that “The English” had been lucky to win. My point being, in history, facts can be lost or changed over time with the victors putting their spin on things and the losers doing the same.

Survivor Series 2012: DVD and Blu-ray review

The Survivor Series is one of WWE’s “Big Four” Pay-Per-View events each year and is their second longest reigning PPV event of all time since its inception back in 1987. The event was born as a way of capitalising on the still-popular Hogan/Andre feud that headlined WrestleMania 3 when Hogan slammed Andre in front of the 193 billion fans in attendance. The show’s showcase piece is the ‘traditional survivor series matches’ that feature 5 good guys against 5 bad guys in an elimination style match. Our friends over at WWEDVD.co.uk will be celebrating their biggest DVD and Blu-ray release of 2013-to-date on Monday March 11th, so we thought we would share with you lovely people the top 5 reasons that you should have this in your collection:
