“I will give you a show that you have never, ever, seen before… Why? Because I can.” – Shawn Michaels

WWE 'Shawn Michaels: Showstopper Unreleased' DVD - Logo

It seems like yesterday that with an “Ooohhhh Yeahhhh” we were revealing the line-up of content for WWE’s Unreleased DVD on the Macho Man — but this next one is going to stop the show!

“Shawn Michaels: The Showstopper Unreleased” is next up for the WWE Unreleased-themed DVD collection which in recent years has covered ECW, 1986-1995 in WWE, The Attitude Era and in 2018 begun unearthing footage of an individual Superstar in Randy Savage.

The new Shawn Michaels entry will present 35 never-before-released HBK matches, some additional moments and a new interview with The Showstopper himself.

WWE is stacking this one with about 8 and a half hours of content; a mix of rare and scarcely seen matches from the vault and those that we’ve never, ever seen before (unless you happened to be in attendance when they took place). By our count all of the bouts featured have gone unreleased on Home Video until now – except for one – can you spot the match we’re talking about?

The footage selected dates between 1985 and 2009 kicking off with Michaels competing in Mid-South Wrestling, AWA and on to WWE with matches from Prime Time Wrestling and Superstars of Wrestling, coupled with loads of unseen dark matches and live events from all stages of HBK’s career, with a helping of RAW matches that although were televised we’ve not owned before.

Fans in the United States can already pre-order this anticipated 3-disc DVD compilation of hidden gems and forgotten classics by clicking here to Amazon.com.

Pre-orders are expected to go live shortly in the UK and other regions.

Are you ready? WrestlingDVDNetwork.com has your exclusive first look at the FULL content listing for “Shawn Michaels: The Showstopper Unreleased”.

Can’t wait to finally see Diesel/Shawn vs Headshrinkers … I remember reading at the time that was consistantly the best match of the night. Shame it wasn’t the one a couple of days before when the titles changed hands.

Why not? Just curious. He’s always been a talented wrestler who had great memorable matches with others throughout his career but like many in the company I was not at all a fan of his backstage behavior/antics especially more so when The Kliq and all the hell they caused backstage. Hated when they ruined kayfabe in 96 w/that Curtain Call incident.

I am easily going to buy this DVD when it comes out in England. A great selection of matches. I wish/hope WWE dose a unreleased 3 disc set of Triple H, matches from his IWF days and some WCW matches and of course WWE matches between 1992 to 2009. I would have 2 matches per year that would give you 34 rare matches on Hunters career. I would love that being a massive Triple H fan.

Anan

Anan

Considering his current position in the company and the family he’s married into along with the position many believe he’s being groomed for, all that means bc of his status with and in the company, I believe that an eventual HHH Unreleased set will happen. If anything, the unreleased set on Randy Savage who for years wasn’t on the best of terms w/WWE and Vince got multiple sets, one being the aforementioned unreleased set, only makes what I firmly believe to be an eventual HHH unreleased set more eventual. Same goes for eventual unreleased sets on SCSA for obvious reasons,… Read more »

Anan, I totally agree 100% on everything you said and I hope they sell very well to the point that they motivate the company to make more. I’m curious on what dvds you would like to see WWE make ? if you were asked by Vince himself.

Anan

To answer your question about what dvds I’d want them to make if Vince asked me: If we’re talking individual talent: Proper lengrh career spanning retrospective documentaries on Undertaker, Sting, Kane, Rock, Booker T, Goldust, Paige, AJ Styles, Samos Joe, Reigns, Ambrose, Rollins WWE Rewind – an extension of Wrestlemania Rewind to cover non WM matches. But the basis is the same where the participants of the match talk about it, then the full match is shown. Extras could be the build up segments in full to the match.

Anan, For me other then the HHH unreleased DVD, I would love a Stone cold unreleased DVD set as well, I also would love for them to make an Evolution 4 disc set, kinda like the new and improved Dx DVD that was released in 2007, with complete segments and matches all in chronological order and uncensored I would love that, from January 20th 2003 to wrestlemaina 21 HHH vs Batista being the last match on the DVD. I would have the title be called “EVOLUTION Line in the sand”, and have this being the intro to the DVD https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7yJQ7jjPKk

These comments should be about the upcoming ‘Shawn Michaels Unreleased’ set, I think I’ve read enough on Brock Lesnar further down in the recent comments! How about we go back to Michaels… I’d like to say that it would have been great if this set had included most of Shawn’s time as WWE Commissioner from back in 1999! I must say, I loved it when I saw him back on TV as WWE Commissioner, however I never got to re-see all his moments again on DVD/BLU-RAY apart from when he was fired by Vince & then had super kicked Vince… Read more »

I quite agree SCSA! Shawn coming back to TV in those days was always fun. There was a time he joined in on commentary; JR, Lawler and Michaels worked pretty well. As commissioner HBK was totally impartial of course!

SCSA
WDN Reader
SCSA

I agree too SAB! His commentary has always been fantastic! N of course, all the scenes of him as Commissioner- screwing DX/ helping Austin after the RR99 on screen (TitanTron) & loads of other moments would have been great to view!
This would definitely make me wanna buy this DVD!

LP1
WDN Reader

He didn’t really make many appearances as Commissioner. He would only show up every few weeks. I believe his run lasted from November 98 – August 99. And then he returned in May 2000 for Judgment Day and gave the Commissioner job to Foley right after.

SCSA
WDN Reader
SCSA

Yeah well, did he come back a little or a lot as Commissioner?! He still showed his face again to his fans & why aren’t there any times of this included in the Unreleased set?
I would rather have seen these scenes than the time of the Pipers Pit. Yet together would have been better including his ‘Shawn and Diesel’ scene – face to face which is another moment on the set.

LP1
WDN Reader
LP1

I suppose they could include those long talking segments where he eventually came out and made a ruling, but that’s really all they were. The segments weren’t really about him. They were more about him making an announcement involving other wrestlers. Personally I’d rather have more matches than talking segments on home videos like this. But to each their own.

Anan
WDN Reader
Anan

Going back to HBK….gr8 suggestion! I agree. I loved HBK’s time as Commissioner and commentator anytime he was in those roles as he was great and entertaining. However Unreleased sets are for matches (mostly) that haven’t been released yet. That’s why most of these sets comprise of matches and if there’s any non match segments, it’s usually interviews or tv show type segments and not many of them. Like this set for instance has 1 non match segment, Pipers Pit. As great as he was in his other roles, in the ring wrestling is where he shined best and that’s… Read more »

Just the 1 non match segment your referring to as the Pipers Pit doesn’t make sense. What about the 2nd non match segment regarding shawn and diesel face to face? Or is that some kinda short match?!

Anan
WDN Reader
Anan

Ah yes! That one too. Ok. 2 non match segments then. Thanks for reminding! If they ever do a DX Unreleased – which is HBK related – then if it wasn’t released yet and to my knowledge it has not been but could be wrong, I’m really hoping that they put that segment leading up to WM14 where HBK superkicks Austin. If I’m remembering it right it happened sometime in Feb or early-mid March 98. They could’ve put it in the HBK Unreleased set but since that segment includes all the members if the original DX it’s more fitting for… Read more »

The tornado tag could be an error. Don’t forget, the Hogan set initially listed his match with the Giant from Hog Wild (also previously on disc) but it turned out to be Souled Out.

I just read the listing again and i found that it’s actually 33 matches. 33 matches and 2 segments. The first segment is ‘PIPER’S PIT’. The second is’shawn micheals and diesel at a ‘Wrestlemania part 11’ public work-out. Every match listed is in order regarding the year they were taped except for 2. Shawn micheals vs.justin bradshaw-septenber 29th, 1996 and shawn micheals vs.vader-september 24th, 1996.

Erik

Erik

Well, there are 35 matches on this 3-DVD set, not 33.

So, Daniel Bee’s statement that 35 matches are included
on this 3-DVD set is correct.

There are 13 matches on Disc #1.
There are 12 matches and two segments on disc #2.
There are 10 matches on Disc #3.

Once again, they are neglecting the Raw 9/22/97 dark match. Makes you wonder if the match was even filmed? I heard from someone who was there that the match was short and not great, but I’d still like to see it. The 3 biggest 90s stars in one match. I hope a Roddy Piper and Undertaker unreleased series is next. In fact I hope one of those is the “mystery” DVD at the end of the year. Here’s an idea- 4 disc Undertaker set. Disc 1 can be an out of character documentary and discs 2-4 can be unreleased stuff… Read more »

WWE’s YouTube channel posted the final two minutes of the match a few months ago, so there’s definitely footage of it. I’d assume that they recorded the entire match, but as others have said, it will probably be more appropriate for an eventual Undertaker set.

pretty solid but i had a feeling they were gonna do a disc on the 2000’s. would rather have more 80’s and 90s. let’s hope for an undertaker , roddy piper, easily another hogan and bret unreleased

RabidHeat

Then I just think there would’ve been complaints that the set didn’t span his whole career, so they can’t win really.

I know I’m being selfish here, and i’m truly excited for the unreleased content we are getting,but I do wish there was more actual unseen and unreleased content like the previous Attitude and 85-95 sets. How did the Raw dark match of HBK vs Taker vs Bret or other dark matches that exist with Triple H get skipped over? I’m just being picky. Still a day one buy!

Fun fact- the Bradshaw and Vader matches happened at the same Superstars taping!

Mike Poulin
WDN Reader
Mike Poulin

Could be disc space some of these matches seem pretty lengthy can only fit so much on to one disc

Anan
WDN Reader
Anan

That could be it but in all honesty they could’ve put a rare match like that triple threat with Bret and Taker and other rarities instead of all those RAW matches which are available on the Network. That said while it could be disc space I don’t believe it is. Just my 2 cents.

SCSA
WDN Reader
SCSA

That’s the WWE’s fault for taking away the use of Blu-Rays which gave more space, less use of disk + extra matches & moments!

Anan
WDN Reader
Anan

Agree about the Bret Hart/HBK/Taker triple threat from MSG being skipped over but I said it before in a comment on another post that I believe WWE are intentionally leaving out all except for 1-3 at most Taker matches on unreleased sets (Attitude Era Vol.3 so far being the only exception) for what I believe to be an eventual Undertaker Unreleased set. No doubt he’s deserving of one. I think that’s why matches like this triple threat were left off this HBK set and the 1991 match vs Macho Man wasn’t on the Savage set. This is of course just… Read more »

RabidHeat
WDN Reader
RabidHeat

Yeah, I agree. Savage was great in the ring, so his set could survive without the Taker match. Taker’s set might need it though, given how limited in the ring Taker was in his early career and the calibre of opponents he had. I think they knew Savage’s set would sell well enough without the Taker match, but it would be a more effective selling point for an eventual Taker set.

Anan
WDN Reader
Anan

Everyone always says how limited Taker was in the ring in his early days. He wasn’t limited in the sense that he didn’t have any skills/talent. It’s that he was not allowed to display them bc of his character. If he did his no one would buy (into) it therefore it wouldn’t have been as effective, believable, iconic, legendary and last as long as it did. Plus most of his opponents in that time didn’t really require him to show off what he was good at in the ring. Kamala, Gonzalez, Warrior, Hogan weren’t the greatest wrestlers in the world… Read more »

I always wonder if the people saying wrestlers like Cena, Warrior, and Hogan were limited have ever seen a Lesnar match.

Anan
WDN Reader
Anan

Yes I have seen more than one Lesnar match.
Advice: don’t take the word limited so literally. I didn’t mean it that way. Limited in the sense that they’re not HBK, Bret Hart, Steamboat, Savage, Angle, etc in the ring from a wrestling standpoint is all I meant. That’s an honest fact that’s been proven a lot more than once.

Lesnar isn’t limited at all. His recent matches are booked to be a certain way, but that doesn’t mean he’s limited in what he can do. Go watch his matches with Punk at SummerSlam 2013 and the Iron Man Match with Angle in 2003.

RabidHeat
WDN Reader
RabidHeat

You haven’t noticed him turning purple after 4 minutes of action lately then?

LP1

Ok, then watch the 3-way from Rumble 2015, the HIAC match with Taker from 2015, the 3-way from Fastlane 2016, the match with AJ from Survivor Series 2017 or the 4-way from SummerSlam last year. All very good matches. Yes, most of his singles matches are booked to be one sided suplex matches, but that doesn’t mean the guy can’t go when he’s allowed to.

Anan
WDN Reader
Anan

You realize yes that in multiple person matches Lesnar doesn’t have to do as much of the work as he’d have to in a singles match? And Taker’s one of those guys that can make ANYONE look better than they actually may be or are. I absolutely hated Lesnar’s matches at SSlam2014 vs Cena, SSlam2016 vs Orton, his matches vs Reigns, and pretty much every match of his not involving Taker, Strowman, Rollins, Joe, Punk, since he originally returned to WWE the night on RAW after WM28

SRB
WDN Reader
SRB

Another option is me going and watching his match at the GRR, Wrestlemania, and Royal Rumble where he does the same move over and over. If his matches are booked that way, which I agree they are, WWE is limiting him in the ring, which is why I said he is limited. How good are the moves he can do if he never actually does them?

LP1
WDN Reader
LP1

A wrestler being limited in skills and being held back by the company are two different things. Does WWE handicap what he can do in the ring? Yes. Does that mean the guy isn’t capable of having good matches when he’s allowed to? Absolutely not.

Anan
WDN Reader
Anan

That’s just it though. When do they allow him to? Most of his matches when he’s doing the moves are either suplexes (usually german suplexes) or F5. For the most part, typically, that’s it. Normally what else does Lesnar do? What else does WWE ever allow him to do? The guy isn’t even allowed to talk for himself! Yet Nakamura & Asuka who can barely speak English do their own interviews. I’m not saying Lesnar CAN’T it’s that he DOESN’T why don’t they ALLOW him to do whatever he can do?

LP1
WDN Reader
LP1

The point is don’t blame Brock for not going out there and having great matches. He’s more than capable. Blame WWE for booking him that way.

SRB

And what does him not working SummerSlam have to do with anything I said about him?

SRB
WDN Reader
SRB

It proves that 2018 Lesnar is a complete joke. Yes, it’s WWE that is making these decisions, but the limited move set, no mic work, and not being seen in months all epitomizes a garbage character and bad business decision making. Obviously, i get WWE is making these decisions. Since we all know how wrestling works, I dont think anyone believes he is showing up whenever he wants and then is doing one move on top of it. No need to remind us who his employer is.

Limited or not Lesnar is a complete joke & while it’ll suck to lose one of the best talkers in the biz in Heyman I’ll be that damn happy when Lesnar’s gone and hope he fails his drug testing so he can’t go to UFC either. He doesn’t care for wrestling or the fans. He only cares about the money that comes with it. He made what’s portrayed as the A-Show’s (men’s) main world title more of a joke than it arguably already was just by its name and looks though no more of a joke than that child’s toy… Read more »

Anan, you’re completely missing the big picture here. You’re mad at Brock for things that aren’t his fault. He has a limited schedule and making more money than anybody else because WWE allows it. Brock would work more days if WWE wanted him to and paid him to. If you’re gonna be mad at anyone, be mad at the company that gave him that sweet deal. Anyone else would kill for his schedule. “Wait, you’re gonna pay me more than anybody else AND I only have to wrestle 10 times a year? Well OK then.” Do you really expect him… Read more »

Have you ever had any contact w/Lesnar or the company? Probably not. So how do you know it’s the company’s fault? Is it their fault that he got suspended from UFC related to drugs or that sickness that I believe hospitalized him? Nope. I’m not mad at Lesnar. I just don’t like him. And it’s not his schedule either. It’s that he has that schedule as RAW’s world champion. If he wasn’t world champion, then I wouldn’t care about his schedule. The world champion or any champion should be on every show and defend at every ppv. If a wrestler… Read more »

How do I know it’s the company’s fault? BECAUSE THEY’RE ALLOWING IT! You think Brock can do whatever he wants without Vince’s permission? Come on now. As far as him being the Champion, again, blame the company for putting the belt on him. Not his fault. He’s just doing what the company is telling him to do. And what does his drug test failure have to do with anything?

SRB
WDN Reader
SRB

The company is being hypocritical here as many champions have been stripped of their titles for not being able to defend every 30 days. Finn, Edge, Batista and the list goes on. I dont care if Lesnar shows up every 18 months. He shouldn’t have the belt.

LP1
WDN Reader
LP1

SRB, I agree 100% that he shouldn’t be champion, but that’s a different conversation altogether. Personally the Universal Title to me means absolutely nothing. It’s less than 2 years old and has no legacy behind it. I wouldn’t care if they got rid of it completely. AJ is the real WWE World Heavyweight Champion anyway.

Anan
WDN Reader
Anan

Yes I completely agree with you on that and was trying to say the same thing. You’re right. He shouldn’t have the belt. Wrestlers older than him or are injured work through it/have worked through it for their entire run as Champion or while they were in the championship hunt bc they realize what being the champion means for them, their career, the championship and the company that made them household names and/or gave them a much more world wide exposure. But somehow he can’t/won’t and continues getting away with it while to your point, Balor, Edge, Batista were stripped… Read more »

You just don’t get it. Think for once. They’re giving it to him bc he asked for it bc he wants it AND bc they wanna make him happy to keep him as long as they can. Its not one reason or another. It is ALL of the reasons that were specified. If it was really allowed don’t you think others would have it too? But they don’t. After working full time for as long as he has Taker’s pretty much earned his current schedule for however long he wants to go and he’s earned the right to make that… Read more »

WWE is at a point financially where they don’t need to kiss any wrestler’s ass. If Brock asked for something that Vince didn’t want to give him, he wouldn’t give it to him. Bottom line. Vince could easily tell Brock to F-off, but obviously Vince is giving Brock this schedule because in Vince’s mind Brock is worth it. Whether he deserves it or not, it doesn’t matter how the fans feel about it, Vince thinks he deserves it. Now with all that said, I agree that Brock shouldn’t be the champion because it just wastes the title and whatever little… Read more »
