According to WWEDVD.co.uk (where UK fans can now pre-order the set for December 2nd) the documentary sheds light on the ups and downs in the company’s 50 year history, exploring such topics as the launch of WrestleMania, growing from a regional promotion to a global brand, the steroid scandal, the XFL and many others still to be named.

You can pre-order the DVD or Blu-ray for November 19th by clicking here to Amazon.com.

The Blu-ray edition of Survivor Series 2013 has now been taken down from Amazon, as you can see here. This may be a sign of yet another cancellation of a WWE Blu-ray this year.

As mentioned, the Best PPV Matches 2013 Blu-ray was also removed from sale. Right now we can only confirm that the “Raw 20th Anniversary Collection” box set is officially no longer going ahead on Blu-ray, though indications for the other two titles are not looking good.


If you still haven’t got your hands on the Triple H “Thy Kingdom Come” DVD, or if you’re waiting for the UK release two weeks today, below is a new preview of the documentary. This clip looks at Triple H in the year 2000, and contains new comments from The Rock.

I LOVE the Cover! Honestly, I was expecting the whole McMahon Family to be on the cover & that be it! As bad as that sounds! But, I am officially disappointed in WWE with the Blu-Ray discontinues this year! Basically the cancelling of the Blu-Ray for 20th Ann. means the U.S. will NOT get the exclusives, & now I have to buy the UK version of the blu-ray or Canadian, if that has not already been cancelled as well! Now SS 2013 & Best PPV’s of 2013 too? My collection is going to be all out of it now! What… Read more »

No Randy Savage pictured? Craziness.

I imagine more people will get pictured both on the back cover, as well as in the interior artwork. Backlund and Graham aren’t pictured either, to name a couple others.

Stop with this Savage nonsense. He wasn’t that great.

Yeah ok.. Savage wasn’t that great and the Kennel From Hell match was the greatest match of all time. Any idea how stupid that sounds?

Savage was a paranoid wife abuser.

Yeah, and when did Elizabeth died? It wasn’t with Savage, it was with Luger. Know your shit, Jackass! Never disrespect the Madness.

I do agree with Nick though! He did abuse Elizabeth, it was one of the major reasons for their divorce & her drug use with Luger, which led to her death! And yes Macho Man was very paranoid! But, so was Hulk Hogan & countless others on both counts! (Ex: Chris Benoit, and people still consider him one of the best technical wrestlers of all time, and he is BANNED from WWE!) My point is that just because he had personal problems doesn’t mean he didn’t do his job well! I mean if that was the case, where would Triple… Read more »

Is this going to be a biography or documentary or just matches?

I actually wrote to WWEshop.com on their customer feedback about this issue and stated that many people are upset about WWE cancelling some future Blu-Ray releases.

Hopefully perhaps if enough people write to them they will reconsider??

Damn that really sucks that a lot of these are getting canceled but o well I got a region free blu ray player so don’t matter for me I’m good to go

My guess is that WWE will be more selective about what they release on Bluray. That was the initial plan but it soon got out of hand with every PPV. The home video market is struggling mightily at the moment as evidenced by a walk thru BB recently. The music/concert DVD and Blurays are almost all gone. They simply don’t sell to anyone other than the hardcore fan. Why should wrestling be any different? Music DVDs like Wrestling, are geared toward a niche audience, unlike most Hollywood movies. The fact that almost any music concert can be found online doesn’t… Read more »

This is so stupid. What is WWE hoping to gain by cancelling blu rays?

VICK

I guess to save money from producing Blu-Rays since they feel not enough people buy them. It is pathetic since WWE should consider themselves equal to Hollywood in this sense. Every major Hollywood movie comes to Blu-Ray so every WWE DVD should come to Blu-Ray as well.

But at the very least, they can make them exclusive to WWE.com. There’s no need to cancel them outright. I’d really like to talk to their home video production people, because this is ridiculous. 4K TV’s are going to be hitting mainstream within a few years and WWE will still be releasing Blu Ray’s lol

With the Raw 20th box set cancelled and the Best PPV 13 and Survivor Series blu rays on the way to being cancelled, is this it for WWE blu rays?

Looks like Survivor Series on Blu-ray might be a Best Buy exclusive. Here’s the link: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/wwe-survivor-series-2013-blu-ray-disc/21898169.p?id=2753244&skuId=21898169&st=wwe survivor series&lp=12&cp=1

Its possible, but they still have Best PPV Matches 2013 and RAW 20th Anniversary listed…Best Buy is probably just slow to update.

So for those who only buy Blu-Ray what did you do with all of your DVDs? Throw them out, sell them, don’t watch them because you don’t like the quality? Just curious as I have a mix of both and only collect Blu-Ray when I like the extras that are included, quality isn’t a factor for me.

I still have my DVDs, they’re just on a different shelf with the Blu-rays on another. I still pop in DVDs from time to time. The quality is sub par compared to Blu-ray but DVD was the only way to watch them and there is no way I was going back to VHS. In earlier releases from 1999-2001 you can see how bad most ppvs pixelate with fast motion or lighting effects. Once WWE went HD, i thought the DVD quality sucked even more than the older releases because its basically 1080i downscaled to DVD which absolutely blows, you can… Read more »

“I’m actually so use to the side bars that when watching the DVDs i put the screen in 4:3 with the black bars and it actually does look better.” You mean you had previously stretched the footage to fill the screen? Why on Earth would anybody ever do that? When I watch shows or DVDs that aren’t filmed in 16:9, I always watch in their original 4:3. I absolutely HATE watching stretched or manipulated footage WAY more than the idea that I’m watching something in standard definition. It just makes everything look very awkward. So the screen isn’t filled up.… Read more »
