ridiculously inappropriate sound effect
this vote is strictly based on the inclusion of an incomprehensible sound effect in these volumes. I was watching these volumes in a multi-disc changer and the first disc of this series was started without my knowledge as I was dozing off.
Within 2 minutes I was ripped wide awake by a buzzing sound that sounded like some sort of projectile ripping across the sky of my living room. Figuring I misheard some odd sound in the opening credits as it was amplified by half-sleep, i settled back to take a lazy look at the wrestling -- only to feel as if I was under a rocket attack as the zooming and vrooming sounds kept repeating themselves at ridiculously fast episodes.
There was no rhythm to the audio attacks -- so I didn't know what in the blue hell was going on. However, after a minute I finally realized that the WWE had slapped this awful sound effect into this otherwise-excellent 9 hour set. Every time a "raw fact" card pops up onto the screen to let the viewer know one of the million amusing facts or coincidences that are part of the cool byproduct of a 15-year continuously produced live weekly series the senses are assaulted.
I'm a pretty mellow guy, but this was really just like nails on a chalkboard. In a mood to watch wrestling, I just had to completely give up on the half-day of what looked like excellent footage and go back to a 1999 PPV DVD of Rock Bottom: In your house that I won at WWE NY long ago.
Hopefully they decided to let the matches' sound just speak for themselves.
Anyway, if i were you, I'd try to listen to 10 or so minutes of this on surround sound or at least a real TV so you can hear how annoying this sound effect is. It definitely fatally compromised my ability to enjoy this product.
