"I have 2 other terrible XPW DVDs, "Baptised In Blood" and "Damage Inc." now those DVDs have no promise or anything good. This DVD I could compare to one of ECW's worst shows. But that is a [heck] of a step up from being pure garbage. Now I am sure they are even better with The Franchise running the show. Let's get one thing straight first, this is not the full show. It's a compilation of matches from the show. I have one by complaint, they show The World Title match (2nd match of the DVD) in full - a very poor match - but they don't show the best match and 1st of the show in full and that being Kaos' TV title gauntlet. I think Nosawa was supposed to be in the match but he wasn't shown. Infact, GQ Money vs. Kaos was clipped largely and some of the Hamrick match was, as well.The Sandman vs. Supreme - WHAT A LETDOWN! Sandman refused to use any weapons (Ok... What else can he do?!). The Buck Naked match was pretty decent but was a HUGE letdown... For the live audience. In this DVD they have a 20 second music video of Veronica Caine and Lizzy Borden completely nude. I promise you, eventhough XPWrestling.com said that they did show nudity before the lights went out, that was false. You couldn't see anything.The Scaffold match was pretty good but nothing spectacular and actually pretty boring until the fall.If you are an XPW fan buy it. If you are a hardcore ECW fan, I would save up your money and buy the new and full shows (ie Hostile Takeover, Exit Sandman, Merry F'N X'Mas, etc.) on their official website.As for the extras, you get a Sandman promo, Supreme Promo and Psicosis vs. Evan Karagious - Good match! The last extra being Scott Snot vs. Vinnie Masaro - Not so good."
XPW is no ECW!

"XPW is no ECW. They had no fan support.Hardly anyone showed up to see this show with New Jack going against Vic Grimes in a scaffold match. The scaffold is very high and the match is very bad. New Jack loves stabbing Grimes with the fork, and I have doubts the stun gun brought into the match was the slightest bit real. The scaffold is high but there are tables stacked upon tables in the ring so it's not that big of a fall. The commentary is terrible. Most of the matches are terrible. If you like hardcore violence you might enjoy the deathmatch. The ring is very poorly lit and the picture quality is pathetic.Don't be fooled by the buck naked match. It's just a big tease with the lights going out before anything is actually visible.I'm glad this company has been shut down because they produced a very poor wrestling product."
An Average Wrestling DVD!

"While slightly better than the last XPW release I picked up (the God-awful Hardcore Conception), this one really isn't much better. There are much better matches but the quality of the presentation is still terrible. The broadcasters are just annoying. You get a play-by-play man who makes Eric Bischoff's old commentating days seem like John Madden brodcasts and a terrible color man doing an awful Cheech Marin impression. This is the worst commentary I have ever heard. The attempts at humor are just so terrible. Any fan of wrestling could probably do a much better job here. The only real rewarding moment is a grudge match between New Jack and Vic Grimes in a scaffold match. The advertised Buck Naked Match is a letdown though you do get a video afterward where both women appear nude. This DVD is pretty bad. The matches are okay but I cannot warn you enough how amateur the quality is and how completely annoying the commentators are. You will honestly probably get a headache listening to them."

"This is a really good wrestling event, but it is only 1 hour? Why in the blue hell would they put a really 3 hour event it to 1 hour it is dumb. But anyway the event it self is pretty good. The fist match is Rock Superstar" Kaos vs. Angel and Chris Hamrick(XPW TV-Title Gauntlet Match). It is not a bad match pretty good opening match. The second match Webb vs. GQ Money
(XPW World Title Match) this is really dumb, they cut the match right in the middle of it and you wonder who in the hell won. If you are going to put a match on a tape please put the hole match. The third match is Supreme vs. The Sandman (XPW King of the Deathmatch) now this is an XPW match. This match is F'n great there a weapons, barbed wire, thumbtacks, any thing that you can think of is in this match. One of the best matches on this hole tape. The fourth match is Veronica Caine vs. Lizzy Borden (Buck Naked Match). This is the most dumbes match I have ever seen in my years of watching wrestling. The light go out right when one of the ladys are all most naked it sucks. The this is one of the best moment on the video it is a 20 second scene that has these two hot girls NAKED yes NAKED it rulz they are very hot I'll tell you that much. The last match New Jack vs. Vic Grimes (40-Foot Scaffold Match) this is the best match on the tape it is so cool when the loser goes flying off the scaffold(I won't tell you who wins). That is it 5 match that are all pretty good, But like I said before 1 hour is never enough. For a new wrestling federation that is out there it is not that bad. Maybe in about 2-3 years they might be that new ECW but not right now."
