Best of WWE at Madison Square Garden (WWE MSG) DVD Cover

Here’s everything we know so far about the Best of MSG release:

 
– It’s confirmed to be produced as a three disc DVD and two disc Blu-ray set.

– The release date to the United States is August 27th; Amazon has it to pre-order here.

– It will be released September 4th to Australia, September 9th to the UK.

– WWE involving Bruno Sammartino in the project is said to be a focal point. There will be new interview pieces with him included between matches and moments.

– At least 20 matches are planned for the compilation and WWE reportedly went with a “never-before-seen” on DVD approach with several of those chosen.

– As of now only the Razor Ramon vs. Shawn Michaels WrestleMania 10 Ladder Match has been revealed, along with a look at John Cena’s Royal Rumble victory in the Garden.

– The official synopsis for the DVD and Blu-ray is as follows.

For nearly 50 years, Madison Square Garden has been the home of WWE. From sell out crowds cheering on Bruno Sammartino’s incredible championship run to the birth of Hulkamania, the inaugural WrestleMania, a stunner heard round the world and several legendary moments in between, WWE presents the moments that have helped legitimize the moniker World’s Most Famous Arena.

This collection showcases over 20 of the greatest matches and moments at MSG spanning all generations of WWE. Along with interviews from several WWE legends and Superstars, fans will relive several of the key moments in history that shaped the WWE of today.

[…] set for release next month in the USA and in September in the UK is ‘Best of MSG’. This week Wrestling DVD News released the cover of the DVD set on their website. It’s little wonder, then, that Bruno […]

Boy can you imagine if Cena had been front and center instead of Bruno? There would be a full-scale riot on here

Sammartino looks like a cartoon.

It’s obviously the best they can do with a black and white picture

Is that not the building between Sammartino’s feet?.

As for Cena on the cover, he’s WWE’s biggest star at the moment (not CM Punk as internet fans like to think), so of course he was going to be on the cover.

matches I’d like to see included:
– Bret Hart vs. Steve Austin (Survivor Series 1996)
– Brock Lesnar vs. Big Show (Survivor Series 2002)
– Eddie Guerrero vs. Kurt Angle (Wrestlemania 20)

in an idela world , I would like for them to include Benoit’s title win from WM 20 also, but that won’t happen for obvious reasons

The only way those matches have any business on this set is if they include the Benoit title victory at WrestleMania 20.

I love the cover, but it is a disgrace to have Yawn Cena on the cover with real legends. Andre The Giant or Jimmy Snuka would have been a better choice.

Cena looks not good on it. He doesn’t belong on a MSG Cover.

Never saw anything from the MSG show. Perhaps I will buy it.

The cover is bleah, it could have been better but I am excited for the set though!

I think I might make my own cover and put the actual building on it. Really poor from WWE. It looks like no work went into it so hopefully the match listings are worth it.

I just want to see matches that I haven’t seen before or are hard to find. No more stuff from the last 2 decades please.

Cablevision probably would charge them to use a picture of the building. That’s probably why it isn’t on there.

You probably just hit the problem right on the head. Which is why I really hope the rumored Cablevision buy-out goes through.

The first thing I thought of was “couldn’t they have put a photo of MSG in there somewhere?” I’m glad someone else caught that too.
Not one of the WWE creative department’s better efforts, IMO.

If by the last two decades you mean the 2000s and 2010s, I don’t blame you too much. I’d love it if they made 2003 the cut off mark on compilation releases.

I meant the 90s and 2000s. WWE need to takes risks and release a lot of older footage from the 60s and 70s because it seems that whole generation is being forgotten.

The 60s and 70s are certainly being forgotten, but there’s a couple of good reasons for it. First, based on the extremely poor sales of the Superstar Billy Graham set, they determined that pre-1980s footage doesn’t sell. Second, as I understand it, they have very little footage from the 60s and 70s. Most of their 60s footage is from Stampede. Most of their 70s footage is from the WWWF and Stampede, but they also have bit of AWA TV and a very little bit of Florida film reel footage. There’s practically no Mid Atlantic or Georgia footage from pre-1981. Not… Read more »

“…based on the extremely poor sales of the Superstar Billy Graham set, they determined that pre-1980s footage doesn’t sell.”

Which is why a Bruno DVD is coming out some time later this year. 😉

I think that was part of the package to get Bruno to agree to come back. Nevertheless, I’ll believe it when I see it. And, if it does come out, my guess is it won’t sell very well anyway.

What they put on the cover doesn’t really matter to me as long as the footage hits the mark. I like that they’re claiming they’re going to do an unreleased type set. I’m hoping for the following: BLU-RAY DISC ONE The Mecca For Rookies and Veterans Bruno Sammartino highlights 4/26/76 Ric Flair vs. Frankie Williams 7/24/78 Dusty Rhodes vs. Billy Graham The Backlund Years 9/22/80 Harley Race vs. Bob Backlund 6/5/82 Bob Backlund vs. Jimmy Snuka 10/4/82 Billy Graham vs. Bob Backlund The Manias Begin 6/16/84 Sgt. Slaughter vs. Iron Sheik 5/18/87 Hulk Hogan vs. Harley Race 7/25/87 Hart Foundation… Read more »

I like how the cover looks. It looks like Hogan and Cena are giving Sammartino respect. Can’t wait to see what the content will be eventually.
