I heard a while ago that the Sting DVD is not going to be produced. Not sure about the others though.

Apparently, The Rock's DVD is supposed to be extremely dissapointing. Not because of the content, but because of the masses of censoring with the WWF logo and any audio that contains the words WWF / World Wrestling Federation. I usually buy 1 WWE DVD at the absolute max a year and this was a dead cert for me, but after hearing about the above, I didn't bother and i'm gonna download it.

Anybody actually got this / seen it?

I haven't seen it but I can imagine how bad it would be then. I have some of the Tagged Classics DVD's and the blurring of the logos, rings etc. on it just makes it not worth it.

I'm in the middle getting RAW's 15th Anniversary DVD Set. Anyone got an opinion on it? And also, is there a lot of censoring of "WWF stuff" on it? :s

Raw 15 looked good on the ads, but I bought it, & am never going to watch all of it, just based on the watching of a bit. (Lots of "Pop-Up Video"-style giving of "historical references", but they leave you confused on storylines & what certain things on it meant in feuds, etc.
 
Keep wishing they'd put-out "Best Of Raw, Vol. _" or something like they had on VHSes years ago @ my local video store.

Ummm I think it would be better to keep PPV reviews and DVD reviews in separate threads. I know what you mean as most WWE video library is event shows themselves but I think this should be mainly for DVDs like WWE Specials, Superstars DVDs and Best ofs.

Perhaps it would be better to put a PPV review into it's official discussion thread i.e. Night Of Champions. This is a tricky question though as what do we do with events from the past that people might watch again like WrestleMania collections etc.

Maybe we should make a Review thread for shows and events where we could all just go on there and post our reviews about past PPVS or even recent PPVS. and we could keep this one for more of the documentary's and stuff like the TNA year 1 DVD or shawn michaels DVD.

The Austin and Ladder Matches DVD'S are awesome. In both DVD's they block the old logo but not on everything. As far as censoring the name  "WWF" I haven't really noticed it in either DVD. But I also heard the same thing about The Rock DVD... So Dale, please tell us how it is because I want to buy it but if it is a clusterf**k then I don't want to waste my money

I finally finished the final disc of Ladder this past week, & it's good. (Worth it just for that Armageddon match that crushed Mercury's face.)
 
I'm iffy on the Hardys' deal, so someone let me know. (I would've preferred a multi-disc on Jeff, & leave Matt by the wayside... Or something on the Carolina Connection, inc. Helms, Moore, etc.)
Title: Official WWE DVD Discussion Thread
Post by: Dale on 27 June 2008, 08:05:47 PM
TJ, The Hardys DVD is actually pretty good. I downloaded it a while back and was surprised at how good it actually was.

It's alot more of a documentary though and if I remember rightly there wasn't actually a full match shown. It is quite in depth aswell and goes into detail a quite bit on how they got into the WWE, had they're own ring, Matt and his own promotion, Jeff's artistic abilites, touches on the Matt / Lita story aswell as a fair few mentions of Helms & Moore.

Either way even if you don't like Matt it's a pretty good DVD and wouldn't be dissapointed at either of the stories.

Last DVD I got was the Wrestlemania 24 DVD and I have to say i'm a little disappointed. The Event itself is EPIC and worth the cost of the DVD just or that, but I'm really disappointed with the lack of special features. It has the hall of Fame ceremony, sure, but I was hoping for *AT LEAST* Ric Flair's retirement segment from raw the next night... oh well.

Still worth it, best wrestlemania in a long time.

I watched the RAW 15 DVD Set tonight and it was great seeing all the action. Some new stuff from early 90s and mid 00s and some memorable stuff from in between then. It misses out on some of the important storylines I think like the Ric Flair return in 01, McMahon Limo in 07 etc. but overall well worth it. The thing that annoyed me most was censoring WWF on Rock's promos, they just mute the volume over it. :(

Post by: Mini Kong on 28 June 2008, 03:34:45 AM
Well the only DVD's I have now are The four horsemen DVD and The Ultimate Ric Flair collection.  Both of these are really great to have especially if you are a die hard fan or mid eighties NWA like myself. The ric flair DVD has alot of great classic matches and the documentary is great also. The four horsemen DVD is just epic. It really goes indepth on what happened behind the scenes and why the originals had to break up at one point. I'm gonna have to watch that one tonight.

BTW, does anyone know when the Mr.Perfect DVD is supposed to be coming out?
Title: Official WWE DVD Discussion Thread
Post by: Dale on 28 June 2008, 08:50:35 PM
Ok so I just got finished watching The Rock - The Most Electrifying Man In Sports Entertainment and I personally loved every minute of it. Whether your a fan of him or not i'm pretty damn sure you'll love this DVD as it shows you how rose to stardom and became arguably the greatest in WWE history.

If your after a documentary which covers all of the Rock's background and growing up and what not then this isn't the DVD for you although the first 5-10 minutes briefly cover his football days and such. What it is, is a DVD that features 19 of The Rock's matches which equals to around 7 hours worth of footage. It shows the full match which makes it that even more awesomer. At the end of the matches there's a video package that last's around one or two minutes which sums up that chapter and then introduces you to the next chapter in his career.

Now when I heard about this DVD it was a certainty for me to buy but after hearing a review or two of it I didn't bother because apparently the censoring of the WWF logo was supposed to be extreme, however when I came to watch it, it really wasn't as bad as people were making it out to be. Yes it was there and yes you could see it but the fact is you get used to it and it didn't once take away my attention from what was actually going on in the match.

I've still got to watch the extra's disc which contains some of the greatest backstage interviews by The Rock and some of his greatest one liners so I don't no what the audio editing is like or how good it is, but fact of the matter is we all know how good his promo's were so nothing I would say would change your mind.

I'm sure there could of been a few more matches / feuds that could have been considered that weren't included such as Goldberg & Lesnar however the match that finishes the DVD is so damn good it was only right to be the main event so to speak so i'm not all that mad about it.

I enjoyed it so much, I'm even considering actually buying it :P

Edit: Just finished watching the promo disc now and as expected it totally kicked ass. 2 dissapointing things about it are that 1 hour 15mins is not nearly enough time for great Rock promo's and the last 15 minutes is supposed to be great one liners which they are, but it's the lines from the promos that were shown in the first hour which was a bit shitty. But still overall, this DVD Rocks :P

Bret Hart: The best there is, The best there was, The best there ever will be
[/U][/B]

Well I just finished watching "Bret Hart: The best there was, the best there ever will be". The first hour just about put me to sleep honestly. Just talked about him wrestling for his high school and winning state and how he broke into pro wrestling. It's gets a little better when he talks about signing with the WWE and teaming up with Jim Neidhart.

The only parts that kept me interested were when he talked about going heel, the montreal screw job, and his days in the wcw. His life growing up was pretty typical. He never really had any hardships getting into the biz like other wrestlers and that didn't do the dvd any justice really.

The whole thing just seemed to be a bit watered down IMO. Like the people who did commentary (which wasn't many) held back on saying what happened backstage between the likes of vince and bret.

I think the DVD was a complete letdown and I personally wouldn't recommend buy it.

The Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior
[/U]
This DVD was pretty interesting. Everyone basically had the same view point about the Ultimate Warrior but, I felt that some were over exaggerated. To be specific ...Bobby Heenan. All he rants about is how no one liked the Warrior, but then again people in the DVD said that they liked him, but he just rubbed them the wrong way with some of the things he did.

Another part that was well over exaggerated was when they talked about his promos. They said that no one never really understood what he was saying, but I personally didn't see nothing wrong with him. The guy was full of energy and what he said fit who his character was. What pissed me off about this part of the DVD was that they also took a cheap shot at Macho Man by saying the same thing about his promos. Macho Man had some of the most innovative and entertaining promos so I don't know what was the deal there.

The DVD really just goes into detail about his ego really. I watched the DVD expecting to hear about him doing something insanely crazy like stabbing a guy 20 times in a hotel room with a pair of scissors or something.

In my point of view the DVD would of been alot more better if they didn't act like his sanity was on the same level of New Jack's.

I watched the Self-Destruction DVD Shanti and thought it was nothing other than a shot at Jim Hellwig the person as well as the character. As funny and controversial as the DVD is, I think it was wrong for the WWE to make. If Hellwig hasn't sued WWE yet I'm sure he will because that's slander/defamation of character.

The Royal Rumble DVD Compilations are pretty good... They are about $39.00 a peice at Wal-Mart but you get 6 DVD's in there and there full Royal Rumble pay-per-views. They are endless hours of fun re-watching the past and re-living old times.

You know whats a great watch the Rise and Fall of ECW, I have watched this about 50 times since it has come out on DVD, it really goes into detail about Heyman vs Bischoff, Dreamer rise to the top, Sandmans begin and end run, Taz injuries and more.
 
9/10 - it's a very solid job similar to Borash's version of it.

I was thinking they should make some new WWE DVDS. For me, Id like a Chris Jericho dvd, and Im shocked he hasn't had one yet... He's been around for a LONG time, and one of the best ever. An Edge dvd is also a must. his career would be one of the best, cause it has early stages with hardcore tag team shit, then his midcard singles run, and of course the current main event run he's had the past almost 4 years.

And also, I think they should really have a Batista dvd. IMO, I dont know how they haven't yet, cause alot of other guys have. A Batista one would be good, especially if they talk about his real life.

Why? Because you don't like his wrestling style?

The man is one of the top draws in the WWE, a multi-time world champion and has overcome a lot of adversity to get to the point where he is today. IMO he certainly "deserves" a DVD (even though it isn't necessarily about that).

Franchise didn't say he didn't deserve a DVD he said there were more people who deserved one over batista. which in my mind i agree but i think batista deserves a DVD as well. But there are other guys like chris Jericho, Big Show,Edge and maybe even kane that may deserve it more. but i like batista and i think he deserves a DVD as well. especially if Cena can have one.

That's just it: They've come out with DVDs for Rey, Hardys, & Cena 2x each... In Cena's case, many fans will tell you it's b/c they jumped the gun the first time, & didn't wait long enough (so he had enough matches, & other things to include). They're probably going to have a Batista DVD, but want to make sure they have plenty of things to choose from.

Nah, the way he said it was in the sense that he didn't deserve it at all, knowing franchise that's what he meant.

"No offense but there are far, far, far more deserving superstars of DVDs than Batista. "

The guys who you mentioned would probably have more material for a DVD, but deserving? I don't know. To me it would be based on drawing power instead of how much they deserve one. And only Edge could be put in the same class of drawing power as Batista amongst those guys and you have to admit that.

If a DVD won't sell and the guy isn't a draw, they won't make a DVD of him, otherwise there would be a Val Venis DVD.

No argument there at all. Batista DVD would sell Greatly. i would say keep him face though until it comes out if the DVD means that much to them. but i would say a jericho DVD would be in the same class in the selling catagory as jericho and edge.

I know you like to look at stuff from a business stand point. but for me when i say more deserving i just mean like they had paid there dues in the WWE for such a long time and have a lot of good matches and they deserve to get there story told. which is the kind of DVDs i like over the DVDs with just matches on it.

What I meant was a mixture of actual wrestling and entertainment ability and also paying dues in the biz. If a superstar is big enough draw for a DVD then I can see an exception but I look at Batista and in all honesty he ticks NO BOXES, i'm sorry.

That's obviously just your opinion, because he's one of the most over guys in the WWE. he's much more over than CM Punk, and despite his apparent limited wrestling ability, he almost NEVER gets booed. Just because you personally don't like him doesn't mean he isn't entertaining or able to wrestle. It's obviously your personal choice that you prefer styles other than the big-man power style, but fact is the man can work, and he's paid his dues, working as "Deacon Batista" with a washed up D-Von Dudley before rising from the bottom up on RAW in the Evolution days.

There's no way a sane wrestling fan can tell me that one of only like two guys Triple H actually put over and a guy basically hand-picked by Ric Flair isn't a good pro wrestler.

JBL's power style appeals to me, Batista does not. Maybe it just personal choice but then again isn't that how these DVDs are produced? I mean we've all seen Macho Man DVD ideas getting pulled because one man, Vince McMahon didn't want to for personal reasons.

Amazon.com recently sent out an e-mail to their customers informing them to pre-order a Randy Savage DVD from WWE. However, Vince McMahon actually cancelled the project after he found about it late last year and Amazon.com apparently weren't informed. Plans for the DVD were made without McMahon's approval as he quickly put the kibosh on it. Amazon.com still has a product page for the nixed DVD. It was tapped to be a nine-hour three-disc DVD set entitled Randy Savage: Macho Madness scheduled for release on November 18, 2008. In its place, WWE decided to release another DVD set on Eddie Guerrero, which is scheduled to be released on November 11.

I would personally rather have a mach man DVD than a eddie DVD. i mean i already have a Eddie DVD and im not sure what else they can put on theer thats not on the first one match wise. of course they will have something about his death and probably his tribute show but i would still rather have a macho man DVD beings i already have 1 eddie DVD.

Well I hate to break it to you, but it's not about what the fans want in this case. Vince hates Macho Man and there for isn't going to release a dvd on him. I'm pretty sure he knows how much bank the WWE would make by putting out a Macho Man dvd, but he it's obvious he doesn't care or else he would of put one out a long time ago.

Well you're breaking nothing because its never really what the fans want. but i actually think the eddie DVD will sell more than the macho man DVD beings eddie has been exposed more to all of the younger viewers who make up the majority of the WWE fan base now.

Reader Brent R. Taylor sent word that WWE has apparently cancelled the previously planned WCW Starrcade DVD set, which was set for release sometime this year. A few months ago, he pre-ordered the "Best of Starrcade" DVD from FYE (originally scheduled for release on July 8), but received an email notification from FYE telling him that his order had been cancelled. On the product page on Amazon.com, they're saying that the project "has been discontinued by the manufacturer."

Same here Adam but I noticed WWE were doing something on WWE.com about Starrcade instead where you had to pick a number of matches from each decade because I think they were going to make a 24/7 online program or something like that anyway. Still sucks though. :(

Created in 1983, Starrcade was wrestling’s first annual supershow and served as the marquee event for the NWA, and later WCW, through 2000. Through the years, Starrcade featured some of the most unforgettable matches in sports entertainment history, headlined by some of the greatest legends and icons of all-time.

 
                       This year marks the 25th Anniversary of Starrcade and to commemorate this occasion we will feature a special entitled             “The Essential Starrcade” that can only be seen on WWE 24/7 On Demand in November.             This celebration will countdown the Top 25 All-time Greatest Starrcade matches.             To help determine the list we’re enlisting you, the fans, to vote on your favorite matches.             Vote today and be sure to check out WWE 24/7 in November to see the results of the poll.

So i finally got around to watching the john Cena my life DVD. the documentary was much like all of WWEs Documentaries. i would recommend that part of the DVD. but what sticks out the most is the lack of matches on this DVD. it has only 6 matches

Randy Ortons farewell match
The Prototype vs. Randy Orton
OVW 19/01/02

vs. Chris Jericho
Vengeance 21/07/02

I Quit" Match for the WWE Championship
vs. JBL
Judgment Day 22/05/05

John Cena, HBK, Hulk Hogan vs. Tyson Tomko, Chris Jericho, Christian
Raw 27/06/05

"Extreme Rules" Match for the WWE Championship
vs. RVD
ECW One Night Stand 11/06/06

TLC Match for the WWE Championship
vs. Edge
Unforgiven 17/09/06


now i know some of those were good.but i wanted to see more. i wanted to see all his wrestlemania matches. i wanted to see some matches against kurt angle. i wanted to see his match with jericho at summerslam a few years back.his match against brock, and maybe another match with and and edge. and most of all i wanted to see him vs bobby lashley because i remember seeing that and it was a great match and i would like to have it on DVD...just not the great american bash DVD because it wasn't a good show overall.

but yeah its a 3 disc set. disc 1 was good. it had the documentary on it and a few little extras. disc 2 had the 6 matches on it. and disc 3 had all his 5 questions on it.

it shows none of his full promos from his old days when he used to cut great promos on the likes of taker,brock,angle and so on.


So all and all. for the documentary i say wach this. but the whole DVD is a disappointment because it left out so much it could have put in and that i wanted to see.

Edge's new DVD will be a three disc set entitled Edge: A Decade of Decadence. Amazon.com has this description of the DVD: Fans may love to hate Edge, but they'll love this impressive collection of matches where Edge has won the WWE Championship (2 times), World Heavyweight Championship (2 times), Intercontinental Championship (5 times), U.S. Championship, WWE Tag Team Championship, and World Tag Team Championship (11 times!). To date, the "Rated R Superstar" has never had a DVD collection highlighting his amazing career, but Edge: A Decade of Decadence changes that. This 3-DVD set will feature dozens of the greatest matches and moments from Edge's career. (Thanks To Shannon)


I love the fact that Edge would be getting a three disc, but then again I hate the new format they have with the 3 disc dvd set about wrestlers. I prefer to have a disc full of documentary on the wrestler and another disc (maybe two) featuring all there matches/promos.

Ok, so the Christmas Pirate this year managed to deliver me the new Edge DVD and i've only managed to watch around 4 of the matches so far and i'll deliver a quick opinion on it as I believe the rest of the DVD will follow the same pattern.

The DVD seems to follow the typical, dissapointing structure of a WWE DVD where you get a 5minute intro and then it's just match after match after match. With this DVD you get a brief interview with Edge and his mother and they talk about how he got into the business and then it skips to a video of Edge in character telling you that he's going to enjoy the greatest thing about himself, himself or something similar. It then cuts to first match which was Edge's first PPV appearance I think it said which was against Owen Hart followed by the Terri Invitational Ladder match against the Hardys, TLC Match, IC Title against Lance Storm and then IC / US Title Unification against Test. This is as far as i've got to in the DVD so this is what im solely basing my opinion on.

I have no gripes with the actual content as I've thoroughly enjoyed all the matches so far, but I just find these DVD's to be lazily and quickly made. I wasn't expecting a documentary where it's mainly just talking and past stories, but I was hoping for at least some interviews and some sort of narrator at the start / end of the matches just giving like a brief overview of how this feud came together, how it concluded etc. This is the main reason why I didn't buy The Rock's DVD because of this sort of structure and the reason why I wont buy any in the future until it changes.

If your one of those people who likes to collect dvd's knowing you've got them legally and what not, then go ahead and buy it otherwise you may aswell just search for the individual matches on the internet and save yourself a fair bit of money.

Yeah the first Flair Collection is awesome. I seen the Undertaker's on WWE 24/7 ondemand and I hated it. I was looking at a bit of the new Eddie Guerrero DVD on youtube and it looks like they actually put work into that one as it was deserved. Anywho, I'm going to buy the dvds anyways just because im a huge fan of edges, and i don't any other WWE dvd's besides the ultimate ric flair collection, four horsemen, and the eddie guerrero dvd that's coming to me through the mail. So it's not like i have any edge matches on other dvds anyways. But I'm with Dale, I wish they would of let him talk more out of character and had some of his other peers give little interviews.

Jim Ross mentioned in his most recent online blog entry that while he was in Stamford, CT. he was scheduled for an interview on "the rise and fall of WCW", which has a lot of people hoping for, and to some extent - expecting, a DVD documentary on the former WWE-rival promotion.

I like the idea. i always wanted them to make a WCW DVD. especially if they had all of the footage and wasn't using it. and i thought it was only fair since they made a ECW,AWA and WCCW DVD that they make a WCW DVD. its about time.

The Rise & Fall of ECW DVD essentially immortalized ECW, I doubt it'll be the same for the WCW one. I can't see McMahon singing the praises of the company. WCW, whilst it was a complete and utter train wreck towards the end - was once the best company in the world, with the best matches and story lines in the world; so I hope that at least gets some sort of mention.

According to Wikipedia, Tagged Classics are direct transfers of the original VHS/DVD releases - if the original releases didn't have the music changed, they won't either.

I have no idea in this case though whether it was changed on the originals.

Well I too would rather a Yearly Smackdown version but you know how the WWE is and how they treat Raw as their best show and give it top priorities.. I'd much rather a Smackdown version being pretty much all my favorite superstars would feature in it and it's easily the best brand out atm.

Rise and Fall of WCW is a typical one-sided retelling of history of WCW.

Does anyone remember why the ECW DVD sold so well? Because WWE give a fair telling of the company. The interviews were all current (they were all done for the DVD specifically), and they looked at the history of the company as well as some of the biggest feuds etc. There are a number of segments on this DVD that are basically re-used archive footage from the Monday Night Wars DVD (specifically Bischoff).

Rise and Fall of WCW is worse than the Monday Night Wars. First of all, the documentary is only a mere 1 hour 45 minutes. Rise and Fall of ECW's running time was over 3 hours. The AWA and WCCW DVD's were longer too.

The DVD is basically telling how Vince bought it in the first place when it was GCW, sold it to Jim Crockett who then sold it on. There is about 30-35 minutes that doesn't seem to be a WWE "re-telling". It had WWE's typical trademarks (taking shots at specific people who will not be going to the company and kissing the arse of those who did/are still there). Ironically, for me, the best insights come from Goldberg.

If you are expecting another outstanding DVD on the level of Rise and Fall of ECW, you're not getting it here.

The matches are good, but the documentary which is what I was most interested in was a pile of horse shit. I just hope Borash does what he did with the Forever Hardcore DVD and make a version that does the company justice and gets many of the former wrestlers who were a big part of the company, specifically around the time of its demise, after all, Sting's insight into the end of WCW would be worth a lot more than (for example) Michael Hayes or even Chris Jericho who left 2 years before it closed.

they probably wanted to put his final matches and the stuff post smackdown this week on there. The "never before seen" stuff usually helps sales a tad.

I bought this the other day and there are some full matches on there. Not sure about how many but there are atleast 15 of them.

I thought the dvd was good. Nothing special but it was nice to go back and rewatch some of memorable things from the past. Also I didn't have UPN back in the day so there were some moments that were pretty new to me.

I have a few disagreements about the placements of some of the moments on the countdown but nothing major.

Also, I watched The Rock do the Sliding People's Elbow like 100 times.

Just got done watching the Best Of SmackDown DVD and I thought it was great. It was great to go back and watch so many fantastic moments I grew up watching and even some I completely forgot all about. It had quite alot of full matches on it too and they were fantastic too. I would definitley reccomend this DVD if you want to watch some quick blast from past moments and nothing too in-depth and from me that's saying something as I usually hate the DVD's that the WWE put out because of the format.

Another Shawn Michaels DVD? Seriously? I like the guy and he can have great matches with pretty much anyone, but I see 1 major problem with it... HE ALREADY HAS 2 DVDs OUT. This will put him out infront for most DVD releases beating Hogan (3) and Ric Flair (2).

The problem I see is that this set will contain his "greatest matches", well, most of them are available on other DVD releases.
Title: Official WWE DVD Discussion Thread
Post by: RyPrax on 8 December 2009, 12:24:50 AM
He has a DVD release in 2003, and one in 2007. The one in 2007 only has 10 or so matches to my knowledge and is more a documentary than anything. There are a few matches since 2006-07 I would put on this dvd, so it's definitely worth it (vs. Undertaker, vs. Flair, vs. Jericho, maybe one of the matches vs. Legacy, among others).

The only reason I would agree with you is because it's obviously Shawn is close to retirement, so I would wait until he was done to put all his retirement stuff on there.

But what's the problem with him having as many DVDs as hogan or flair? He's definitely among them in terms of greatness and innovation, and as i pointed out, he doesn't really have a comprehensive DVD collection.

Either way, it's all about how much money they can make.
Title: Official WWE DVD Discussion Thread
Post by: Gorsty on 8 December 2009, 12:40:18 AM
But when this next DVD is released, he is 1 DVD behind Hogan and Flair COMBINED. Between them, they'll have had 5 DVD's released, HBK will have had 4 alone. And while you may be right about the previous DVD releases, I still think its a bit of overkill. Odds are WWE won't put the entire Ironman match between Michaels and Bret on a DVD, if anything there will be highlights. The Flair and Taker matches, fair enough, but I just don't think there has been enough to justify yet another DVD release when Edge has had a single DVD release, Jericho still hasn't had that (although its apparently coming soon), Randy Orton has been a main eventer for 5 years (he won the World title Summerslam 2004) and hasn't had a DVD set released.

Personally, as much as I like Michaels, I will probably be skipping this DVD as a number of WWE's recent releases have left me with a bad taste in my mouth (Edge getting the RVD treatment of just making random comments between matches, Rise and Fall of WCW shitting all over the legacy of WCW by briefly covering the rise and then going into as much detail on the fall and WWE not even being bothered to get current interviews from people who were involved like Bischoff, Hogan, Flair etc instead choosing to use footage of people from 2003 or from people who left WCW before the downfall like Jericho who left before Russo got there)

WWE DVD releases are business-fueled more than anything. If you don't like them, that's your prerogative but clearly these people know what they're doing because WWE DVDs always sell. As I said there are 3 or 4 matches since his last DVD that would make this DVD and I didn't even know they've never put the entire iron man match on DVD (I'm pretty sure the Flair DVD had at least an entire Iron Man match on it, not to mention a lot of matches that were closer to 30 minutes than not, whereas HBK would have shorter matches on his).

Comparing his DVD count to others is useless, it's about timing and how much new content they have to release on the latest one. But does he really have 3? I only remember From the Vault and Heartbreak and Triumph. While I'm sure he has more from the 90s, I don't know how those could count in the DVD discussion...

Either way, I don't think releasing another HBK DVD affects whether or not they'll release an Orton DVD or whether or not Edge's DVD or the WCW would be bertter, so I don't even know where you're going with that...
Title: Official WWE DVD Discussion Thread
Post by: Gorsty on 8 December 2009, 01:14:22 AM
My point is, WWE has always been hit or miss in the DVD department, but there have been times where its been more hit than miss with 8/10 DVD's being released being great. Nowadays WWE seems more interested in making DVD's that pander to idiot children or whitewash history to show WWE as the be all and end all.

For every Rise and Fall of ECW there is a Rise and Fall of WCW, for every Eddie Guerrero: Cheating Death, Stealing Life, there are DVD's like Edge's Decade of Decadence. As far as I'm concerned, unless a wrestler has retired, I'd rather see an indepth documentary with them and hear things from their point of view as opposed to just see a random collection of matches. If they've retired and they've already got the documentary DVD, then its fine to release a match compilation, but at least try and put some stuff on there thats not easy to find like TV matches instead of just PPV matches

I hate to break it to you, but if you're looking for in-depth movie making, you're looking in the wrong place. Sure, there are cases such as the ECW story and the Eddie story, but those are anomalies if you ask me. The ECW was make to cater to a specific audience. Old ECW fans are smart, a fluff piece wouldn't have gone over. Whereas WCW had a different audience... Eddie deserved an in-depth piece because of the emotion surrounding his head and how sudden it was... I haven't seen the Edge DVD so I can't comment on it, but the guy has a book and a career still ahead of him, so I don't understand how it can compare to Eddie's situation.

WWE home video is fueled by making profit. And personally, when I buy a WWE DVD while it is in part to hear the story behind a wrestler's career, it's mostly to have the collection of matches in DVD quality.

If you want more in-depth revealing stuff, pick up a wrestler's book, you're more likely to get what you want in that.
Title: Official WWE DVD Discussion Thread
Post by: Adampro123 on 8 December 2009, 03:46:36 AM
I Think Shanw has 3 dvds out.

first one being a 1 disc with mostly highlights (don't have it, think its called boyhood dream)
second one being a 2 disc with just matcches and special features but most if not all is from his days in the 90's
third being of course the documentary DVD with 2 disc worth matches

But To be honest i think Shawn has enough great and really good matches to fill up as many WWE DVD's as they want. and honestly i would rather watch any shawn michaels match any day of the week rather than watch a Ric Flair or Hulk Hogan Match.

on a side note earlier this year Jeff Jarratte got a 4 disc DVD of just TNA stuff (i think some indie stuff but not much, could be wrong) I remember when people were complaining about that. but i say as long as you have enough good contenet to put on there then go right ahead. now i don't have that DVD so i can't say if its good or not but point is with anyone important to a company they are probably going to get a lot of DVD's to be honest i would have though a 3rd john cena DVD would have came out by now.
Title: Official WWE DVD Discussion Thread
Post by: Gorsty on 9 December 2009, 03:13:15 AM
The Eddie Guerrero DVD (Cheating Death, Stealing Life) was released in 2004, a year before his death. That was the DVD with a great documentary and was easily one of my 5 favourite WWE releases of all time. That was also released with a book (which is a great read) that was released before his death as well (so the argument of the whole Edge having a book thing is irrelevant). WWE then released the compilation of matches on the Viva La Raza boxset that was released not long after his death, that I had no problem with.

The whole issue I have is that WWE has been putting out poor DVD efforts just to make money which is why they make nothing from me now except on very rare occasions. WWE has all the resources required to make some of the best documentary DVD's of wrestlers anywhere due to the massive video library they have and their ability to get great interviews out of people, but they seem more interested in getting anything possible together and release it as quickly as possible.

Look at The Rock's latest DVD release (The Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment), there are 3 discs, 19 matches and a handful of promos. For someone who has been such a huge star in wrestling, could WWE not have coaxed him into a studio for 3 hours to record anything for the DVD. Not saying its only WWE's fault, scheduling conflicts happen, but this DVD set would have been awesome if they'd made the effort to make it more than just a collection of matches.

And therein lies the problem I have with WWE. I could honestly name a lot of DVDs that have had a good documentary on from years gone by, but this above seems to be WWE's current mentality. Why should we not expect in-depth, quality movie making from the so called "biggest and best" wrestling company on the planet?

Why should we even expect that? And how does them being the biggest wrestling company correlate to them needing to put out better produced DVDs? Obviously they have standards to keep up, but no one ever said that WWE's goal when releasing DVDs is to put out in-depth documentaries. They're a business, they do what's best for business, and telling the blatant truth isn't always what's best for business, especially in a controversial business such as wrestling.

Like I said before, you make get the enthusiastic project manager or director or whatever that ends up doing the Eddie story (my bad about the dates) and the ECW DVD, but when push comes to shove, clearly, what they're doing is beneficial to them, so why should they change it just because a few IWC people want to see more in-depth stuff?

You may not agree with WWE's direction at the moment, but let's not act like "the biggest and best" wrestling company doesn't have a big marketing department making suggestions about what kind of DVDs they need to put out. It may be a problem to you, but to them, a business, with shareholders to answer to, it clearly isn't.

The planned WWE Hart Dynasty DVD will be a three DVD set currently scheduled for release on 4/6. The set will focus on the different members of the Hart family tree as well as Stu Hart's Stampede Wrestling.

An early official blurb about the set reads, "Clan Patriarch Stu Hart trained and toughened a generation of future superstars, including sons Owen Hart and WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hit Man Hart. The Hart family legacy continues to thrive in WWE with third-generation stars Natalya Neidhart and DH Smith. Now for the first time ever on DVD, fans can learn the storied history of the Hart family and Stampede Wrestling in Hart and Soul: The Hart Family Anthology. This 3-DVD set is packed with a revealing documentary tracing the Hart family history, as well as matches featuring all the members of the Hart family."


Looking forward to this, especially if Bret's going to be involved.

that is quite odd but it is on the flair DVD and WWE doesn't seem to like giving away wrestlemania matches on DVD's im actually surprised they put the angle vs HBK match on there from mania 21.

also would have liked to see HBK vs Triple h from SummerSlam 2002. i dunno if its on his first DVD or not i guess i'll go check but i think that a very improtant match

and finally i wish they would have put Jericho vs Michaels ladder match from no mercy on the DVD as well.

with that said it will stillbe an awesome DVD to have.

If you look on the last page I posted the match listing. The Iron Man isn't on it. I think they went with some lesser known HBK matches this time around and frankly the listing still looks pretty good despite leaving off HBK/Flair and the Iron Man match, among others.

DISC ONE

he Hart family has long served as Canada’s first family of Sports Entertainment, from patriarch Stu and his Stampede Wrestling and Dungeon, a training site that has produced multiple Hall of Famers, though sons Bret, Owen, on to a new generation of WWE Superstars, The Hart Dynasty.

The WWE has announced that they plan to release a Chris Jericho DVD sometime in September. BOUT FUCKING TIME.

Just watched Jericho's DVD and I have to say, I'm disappointed.

I mean, it is a good DVD but if you've read his book then it's nothing that new. It felt a bit rushed, but it was nice to see things coming from Y2J himself and his insights on why he got rid of the Y2J character etc was nice to hear. If anything, it was just an in motion version of his book (which isn't a bad thing) and if anything got me more excited for his upcoming one.

That being said, it's nice to see them doing more actual documentaries with DVD's rather than match compilations.

Watched the documentary part of that new WrestleMania DVD that recently came out and I must say I enjoyed it a fair deal. Was really interesting watching about them building it up and such from scratch and also some of that talents speaking on each other, the arenas etc

Only thing I didn't like was the fact that it jumped around ALOT.

Yeah it did seem to jump a bit, but I didn't really mind it because it made sense with them going back to that arena or city or whatever

Just watched it myself, was good stuff.

I love hearing Vince talk about things in interviews, I hope before (God forbid) he dies, we get something definitive with him talking about things. Whether it be a book, a DVD, or whatever.

Got my netflix back and they have some WWE movies on there.

Last night i watched the bobby the brain movie which felt short but i really liked and the 50 greatest superstars of all time, i remember there was some talk about it when it came out but apparently this list was made by who were the superstars favorite wrestlers so i guess you really can't say too much about it. though harley race got 6th which i found questionable. and it seemed like they just left WCW off of it completely leaving out guys like Sting,Goldberg,DDP,Booker T,Nash amoung others. but i guess just no one in WWE liked WCW.lol. overall it was an enjoyable watch.
Title: Re: Official WWE DVD Discussion Thread

The Brain DVD makes me sad because there is no interviews with Bobby and its probably because of how sick he is, which legit makes me very very sad.
Title: Re: Official WWE DVD Discussion Thread
Post by: Adampro123 on 25 March 2011, 09:59:30 PM
Watched a few more.
Jericho
Big Show
True story of wrestlemania.

I thought the Jericho one was the best one. really just made me like the guy that much more.

Then 2nd would be the true wrestlemania story, it did jump around a bit too much and towards the end it seemed like it was rushing through manias and just trying to be over. with that said it was a really good watch and did its job in getting me excited for mania.

Big show dvd was good but really short and didn't focus that much on his wrestling career  or at least as much as i would like. like the jericho docu would go through his different runs in WWE. but Shows seemed to leave out a lot IMO. and some pretty big stuff. with that said its still worth a watch.

Still got heart and soul and the John Cena experience to watch. i hope Netflix put out more of these.

As expected Chris Benoit vs. Randy Orton from SummerSlam 2004 will not be included on the disk... Thought it will look odd that the biggest moment in your career winning your first world heavyweight championship will not be included in his DVD.

Not a surprise but i would have liked for it to be on there. i don't think ignoring him and pretty much acting like he was never there is the right thing to do. but it's what they're doing so whatever.

It still looks to be a good DVD. There might be a few matches left off here that i wish were on here but i can't think of them at the moment besides Orton vs Triple H last man standing match from when john cena had to give up the title due to injury and triple h took his place. i also don't really see why Orton vs Sheamus is in there beings there HIAC match was pretty bad as far as i can recall.

Annoying how they are still doing this Benoit stuff, the guy clearly had some mental health issues when he did all that horrible stuff and lets face it, he was a great wrestler who should be remembered for that. I can understand it but I feel like they shouldn't make an issue of it. Anyway, I can't remember an Orton DVD coming out, is this his first?

I have volume 1,hopefully I find the others maybe at a Fye.These days Vince is just plugging out Dvds to make more money.Not thinking if the Fans will have any interest in that wrestler or best of type of Dvd..Big show for example he is a nice guy but he is not going to interest me with his matches on the DVD.Now for Randy its the total opposite.I believe the same month Randy's Dvd comes out Triple H comes out too.Have many Wrestling dvds to you guys have.I have 50.

Apparently that match is exclusive to the Blu-Ray version. Which is ridiculous in my opinion as it is key to the rivalry, so should have been included normally anyway.

Yes! Yes! Yes! Daniel Bryan looks to be the next WWE Superstar in line for the DVD treatment.

WWE Daniel Bryan Yes! Yes! Yes! 2012

This according to shock.com.au, which reveals both Daniel Bryan and Sheamus DVDs are two more planned additions to the Superstar Collection series this summer.

Four titles make up the series – John Cena, Zack Ryder, Daniel Bryan, and Sheamus. Each a single disc DVD, slated to contain five matches and bonus material [pre-order].

These DVD's won't be great but it would still be nice add to the collection especially for Bryan and Ryder.

Also Netflix has added 3 new WWE titles
Wrestling's greatest rivalries: Shawn vs Bret
Best of King of The Ring
and The new Rock DVD.

WWE SEC filing has revealed the production costs for each of the WWE Studios movie that the company has released so far.

Licensed films
* See No Evil from May 2006 which cost $10.4 million
* The Marine in October 2006 cost $20.2 million
* The Condemned in May 2007 cost $17.5 million
* Behind Enemy Lines 3 in January 2009 cost $2.5 million
* 12 Rounds in March 2009 cost $19.7 million
* The Marine 2 in December 2009 cost $2.3 million

Self-distributed films:
* Legendary in September 2010 cost $5.3 million
* Knucklehead in October 2010 cost $6.4 million
* The Chaperone in March 2011 cost $5.8 million
* That’s What I Am in April 2011 cost $4.7 million
* Inside Out in September 2011 cost $5.1 million
* The Reunion in October 2011 cost $6.9 million
* Bending The Rules in March 2012 cost $5.5 million

Out of all the movies mentioned, WWE did profit only on three of them – The Marine, Behind Enemy Lines 3, and The Marine 2. The first Marine movie is the highest grossing with a profit of $15 million and the other two just $200,000 and $800,000 respectively.

The Condemned remains the biggest money loser with $6.5 million in the red, followed by That’s What I Am at $4.9 million and The Reunion with $4.5 million.

In total, WWE has spent $118.4 million in production for 13 movies, seven of them are self-distributed while the other six are licensed.

I don't think anyone likes these movies. do you think WWE should just end it?
Title: Re: Official WWE DVD Discussion Thread
Post by: Awesome on 9 May 2012, 06:54:30 PM
I don't see them giving up on it any time soon, I think that they are going to keep trying for as long as possible to find the right mix that will give them profit.
Title: Re: Official WWE DVD Discussion Thread
Post by: RyPrax on 9 May 2012, 07:01:46 PM
The point isn't strictly making profit. It's getting their foot in the door of the movie industry, launching vehicles for their superstars to give them an IMDB listing, if you will, branching out. I'm sure they don't want to lose money on anything but it's not as clear as how much money the movie brings in in DVD and Box Office sales, at least that's how I see it. It's like if you go to a job interview with 5 shitty jobs on your experience versus none, it's better.
Title: Re: Official WWE DVD Discussion Thread
Post by: Awesome on 9 May 2012, 07:07:50 PM
True, but I would imagine that there would still be a point where the shareholders would be calling for them to stop if it starts losing too much money, though obviously that would probably depend upon how much control that they are able to exert over WWE.

That's the thing though, most of the movies can't be losing THAT much money and savvy investors would know that it does other things than just create a new revenue source. At least, as a businessman, I can see why they do it.
Title: Re: Official WWE DVD Discussion Thread
Post by: chappers on 9 May 2012, 07:41:10 PM
Its pretty obvious that they should aim to spend a similar production cost to The Marine 2 and Behind Enemy Lines 3, people out there who will be dedicated WWE fans and that's probably where they make a lot of their profits. Also worth noting that the action movies made money rather then the incredibly crappy comedies like The Chaperone or Knucklehead, people can spot a bad comedy straight away and most people can stomache a bad action film a lot more then a bad comedy. It helps that they also have that Arnie/Stallone build, instantly makes people think that it will deliver that kind of corny cliched action that requires little acting talent.
