WWE: The Best of Attitude Era Royal Rumble

Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “MADOX-01 is a good, fun anime film that – if I hadn’t already backed the kickstarter, I would have picked up on Blu-Ray, as it certainly benefits from being in high-definition.” Blaine says, “nothing jumps out at me.”
