Fantasy Concept: WWE Championship – 50th Anniversary

October 7, 2012 by Mark D

WDN Fantasy Concept

Fantasy Concept returns today to look at: WWE Championship: 50th Anniversary.

Next April will mark the 50th Anniversary of the WWE’s richest prize: the WWE Championship, and I decide this milestone should be marked with a four disc DVD and three disc Blu-ray set. The set would feature a documentary looking at the history of the championship, complimented with a selection of Championship matches from the 1970s up until the modern day.

GREAT concept, I’d love to see more RAW title defences on here, I know there isn’t a lot, but some more would be cool to see! Just because they are not often released. 🙂

Good concept, but why don’t you or the WWE ever think about putting in the WM6 multi-title match-up for both the IC & WWF Championship between The Ultimate Warrior & Hulk Hogan??!!? I’ve been waiting for that match to come out on Blu-Ray ever since the start of wrestling Blu-rays!!

It’s like nobody wants it!

Very nice! One suggestion for a future fantasy concept (not sure if this is out in real life, doubt it): The History of the WWE Tag Team Titles

Mark, as usual, a fine effort! It can be argued which matches should be used, should be replaced, should be used instead, etc. but I generally like the layout. What would sell me the most is the doc. A championship that’s been around for 50 years has a story that needs to be told. I think you have the chapter layout perfectly done.

I’m with the anonymous guy, cut the Austin/Kane title change and put on the Austin/Undertaker title change from June 1999 Raw.

That would be an awesome DVD. Really like most of the matches. Wonder if there is any stuff out there from Bruno’s first run as champ.
Also agree the In Your House Final Four would be a great choice.

I think it has a good chance of making Bret Hart’s unreleased collection.

Not bad at all, some repeats but enough stuff not on DVD (or HD not on blu ray yet.)
