Before there was Team Hell No, there was Bryan Danielson and El Generico.

Sometimes wrestling fans are the best.

Still great!

Go Shiozaki, Nigel McGuinness, Kensuke Sasaki, Adam Pearce and Daniel Bryan: September 20, 2008
This would make a pretty impressive stable.

Tuesday means new DVD releases from Ring of Honor, and this week we’re getting two big ones. 

Bryan Danielson vs. Nigel McGuinness: The Complete Collection is definitely a must own for lovers of great wrestling. Two discs recapping one of the defining feuds of ROH’s ten year existence, and one of the best anywhere in North America in the last decade. Two men at the top of their class, battling for respect, titles and the right to be called the best in the world. This set begins with the very first attempt at unifying the Pure and ROH world titles, carries through to such phenomenal encounters as their brutal five star classic in Liverpool, shows some of their great tag team battles as opponents and team mates, and culminates with their last match at Glory By Honor VIII which was not only their last match against each other in ROH, but also both men’s swansong with the promotion as they began working elsewhere. Order it here.

Kings of Wrestling: Kings Reign Supreme is a two disc set recapping the one of the most dominant and impressive teams in ROH history. After reforming in late 2009, Chris Hero and Claudio Castagoli tore through the entire tag team division, having countless great matches with The Briscoe Brothers, Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin, The American Wolves and more. Lovers of tag team wrestling should pick this set up for sure as it covers all the major matches in the Kings’ acclaimed second run in ROH from 2010 through to their signing with WWE, and departure in 2012. Order it here.
