While Wrestlemania is considered the greatest achievement in sportsentertainment...and partly rightfully so in terms to the attitude era...I for one always have considered the Royal Rumble event to be the most entertaining match type of the WWE year!
Mainly the 30-man match but also some very good undercard matches makes the RR ppv for me the most spectacular event of every year.
The anthology edition of Royal Rumble...and also Summer Slam, Wrestlemanina and Survivor Series...comes with absolutely no extras what so ever! On the other hand: with the anthology editions, you get the complete ppv with matches in full length, whereas the Tagged Classics editions often have matches shorten or even left out, due to mastering from 3 hours VHS tapes back in those days.
I strongly recommend the anthology edition, and yes, I know on the old shows there is the annoying blurring and the altered entrance music...but.. you still get the whole show as it pretty much was aired.
