WWE Best of The 2000's DVD - The Rock vs. Hulk Hogan, WrestleMania 18

Before the complete content listing of WWE’s new “Best of The 2000’s” DVD drops tomorrow, there’s one last stop in our exclusive 2000’s WEEK match reveals.

“Best of The 2000’s” is on this year’s Home Video schedule for an April release worldwide and it’s set to pack in over 10 hours of the greatest bouts the company delivered between 2000 and 2009, along with newly-filmed host segments with a WWE Hall of Famer who made his own indelible impact on the decade; the current General Manager of RAW, Mick Foley.

With “The Show of Shows” just weeks away, today’s picks include three of the greatest matches in WrestleMania history — scrap that, one of these may well be the greatest match of all-time.

Look out… next up on WDN is the FULL content of this 4-DISC compilation!

WWE officially released updated, Rumble Anthology-like DVD box sets to Australia in late 2016 — “Royal Rumble: The Ultimate Collection”.

Breaking: New & Updated Royal Rumble Anthology Box Set This Year, First Update on 2017 WWE DVDs

For those of us yet to see them in the flesh, check out these brand new photos:

Royal Rumble: The Ultimate Collection Vol. 1 (1988-2001)

It was a simple, yet revolutionary concept: two men start in the ring, and every two minutes another Superstar is added to the match. Toss your opponents over the top rope to eliminate them until only one remains.

It was so popular with fans that in its second year, 1989, the number of Superstars increased to 30 and the match moved to pay-per-view. In 1992, the stakes were raised, as the victor was awarded the WWE Championship. Before long, the Royal Rumble grew in significance, a key event for WWE Superstars and the first step on the road to WrestleMania.

Royal Rumble: The Ultimate Collection Vol. 2 (2002-2016)

From 2002, Superstars from RAW and SmackDown, and now ECW, all met in one common match – the Royal Rumble. With an eye toward WrestleMania, and a place in the main event, the period saw a diverse group of winners – from legendary WWE Supersars like John Cena and The Undertaker, to underdogs like Rey Mysterio.

Witness the once-in-a-lifetime 40-man Royal Rumble from 2011, as well as the history-making Royal Rumble from 2016 that placed the fate of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the hands of 30 WWE Superstars in one unforgettable match – plus many more memorable Royal Rumble moments!

With similar artwork to the first Royal Rumble Anthology released back in 2007, now housed in new packaging, this bulky Home Video collection present 29 full Rumble events in two separate box sets — one a 14-disc set and the other a 15-disc set.

That’s 9 more Rumble’s than the original, and a combined total of over 80 hours of footage!

The box sets each contain 2 DVD cases with different Superstars featured on their artwork.

The discs inside list the Royal Rumble Match participants for all events. For those wondering, that does include Chris Benoit who has not been omitted from the listings, as shown below.

Fans in Australia can get hold of the collection now at Madman.com.au and JBHiFi.com.au.

All signs point to the box sets staying exclusive to that region. Unfortunately a release elsewhere is unlikely, and of course if that were to happen the most recent event would have to be included.

Since the title was produced before this year’s Rumble, the 2017 edition is not present here.

Anybody know if Royal Rumble 2008 is widescreen?

I feel like the people complaining about the complainers are far more annoying than the complainers themselves.

Doesn’t surprise me people here having a hard time grasping the theme of this set. If its full of repeats and you have every single WWE DVD ever produce then you saved yourselves $25 and move on.

I think people here expected matches like Paul London vs. Akio from Velocity and Maven vs. HHH from Heat…if thats the case then you’re better off not buying this and just continue and pissing and moaning, which is really what majority of wrestling fans are good at.

You summed up my reaction perfectly. It isn’t called Best Unreleased Matches of 2000. People always bring up repeats that might be on a 8 year old release that a new fan won’t know about.

Did the WWE home entertainment person in charge change? We went from unrealesed exclusives to everything that is on the WWE network.

Considering just about every PPV, Raw and SmackDown are on the Network, it would be hard to make a Best Of 2000s set without including matches from those shows.

I was hoping for Angle/Lesnar but at least we got Hogan/Rock.

Wrestling DVD Network will any of the upcoming DVD releases (other than Royal Rumble and The Jetsons & WWE: Robo-WrestleMania)have Closed Captions?

I LOVE this set! Keep those matches coming! I don’t see what people don’t get, this is a set of the BEST matches of the decade, not NEVER BEFORE SEEN. This is a fantastic list so far!

Craig
Guest
Craig

What happened to matches from raw, smackdown, heat, velocity? Most of the matches listed here are from ppvs only.

IHeart2000s
Guest
IHeart2000s

Maybe the best matches happen on PPVs? Ever think of that? Wouldn’t you rather Austin vs. Rock at WrestleMania over Tajiri vs. Scotty 2 Hotty on Velocity?

Craig
Guest
Craig

I’d rather see some tv matches than just ppv matches. A Best of the 2000s to me would have some rare stuff from raw and smackdown at least, not just exclusive ppv matches only …

IHeart2000s
Guest
IHeart2000s

Well the set is called the BEST and not the RARE so that wouldn’t work

Craig
Guest
Craig

I never said it had to be RARE set, just a few unreleased matches rather than have all the content repeated again. What’s so hard to grasp about that or are you one of those suck ups who agrees with everything content related on a dvd set?

Who is this Craig? I feel so bad, his parents never let him order a PPV. He’s just trying to relive his youth!

Um I don’t think I said that. I’m pretty sure I called everyone who was complaining nerds. And the fact that you can’t realize that makes you the biggest nerd here! So congratulations!

We all have the Hogan-Rock match but I must say, it is great to see WWE including Hulk again in these collections. #GOAT

I think I would add these 3 to the main set and call it complete. – Christian & Edge vs The Hardy Boyz vs The Dudley Boyz Wrestlemania X-7 – Apr 1, 2001 – Ladder Match for World Heavyweight Championship Shawn Michaels vs Chris Jericho No Mercy – Oct 5, 2008 – Ladder Match for Intercontinental Championship Rob Van Dam vs Eddie Guerrero RAW – May 27, 2002 I know this list is probably missing a few RAW or SD matches, but I understand if they include CB, that’s probably not going to happen. Which I’m okay with actually. HBK… Read more »

I have 2 of these matches on ‘Mr Wrestlemania’ blu-ray & RockVs Hogan on ‘True story of Wrestlemania’!

Even though by having all these great matches on 1 single set sounds fantastic, it’s still a ‘No buy’ cos it’s not on blu-ray
