Instead of separating this into a bunch of different reviews for each individual show (since the 32-man tournament was taped over four dates, but aired as weekly hour-long WWE Network specials over the course of two months), I’m just going to review the entire tournament at once. Synergy!

WWE Network Collections: Hidden Gems (September 2016)

While I’m skipping the Last Battle in Atlanta, it’s really cool that the footage was found (and, according to the WWE’s own archivist, apparently they had it all along, at the end of a random Omni tape that no one had bothered to categorize since they acquired the rights to it in 2001), and is available on demand to subscribers. I’m just not bothering with a formal review because the match itself isn’t anything particularly special, but it’s certainly worth checking out for the historical significance
