//->> OPENING WORDS FROM THE EDITOR
Colin Vassallo -[editor@...]-
I got the WrestleMania 24 DVD today and I must say I was impressed with the
picture and sound quality. WWE did a great job with this one, especially the
5.1 Dolby surround track. And it looked even better when upscaled to 1080i
on my HD DVD player. I'm sure the original Blu Ray disc has a much better
crystal clear quality but this is as good as it gets upscaled.
I was however disappointed that they edited the Hall of Fame ceremony. Some
parts from The Rock's speech were removed for some unknown reason while the
Flair speech was also edited. The back artwork says it has the "complete"
ceremony. Well, it wasn't complete. And the other thing that bugged me was
that the Hall of Fame is split on two discs, most on the second disc and the
rest on the third disc. That was rather annoying.
Apart from those three stuff, everything was good and it's a DVD worth
Order the WrestleMania triple disc DVD now!

> BENOIT'S PERSONAL PHYSICIAN INDICTED ON 175 COUNTS- Chris Benoit's personal physician, Dr. Phil Astin, has been indicted
yesterday by a federal grand jury on a whooping 175 different counts all
related to illegally prescribing drugs to numerous patients, including Chris
Benoit. Dr. Astin allegedly provided multiple prescriptions during the same
day, wrote inappropriate combinations of drugs and giving methadone to
patients in advanced for months and years. "Since the initial indictment in
this case, investigators have carefully reviewed hundreds of patient files
and interviewed dozens of witnesses, and we now see a much broader picture
of the disturbing and dangerous distribution of prescription drugs," said
U.S. District Attorney David Nahmias.
