EXCLUSIVE: Latest Details on WWE’s Big (4 DISC) ‘Best of The 2000’s’ DVD, Verdict on New Blu-Rays?

February 10, 2017 by Daniel Bee

WWE 2017 Mick Foley DVD - Commissioner Foley with Enzo Amore & Big Cass

WrestlingDVDNetwork.com has exclusively learned that WWE’s upcoming 2000’s-themed DVD will be tagged with a TV-14 rating and feature over 10 hours and 30 minutes of footage!

The 4-DISC SET, tentatively named “Best of The 2000’s” for now, is scheduled to hit stores in the UK first on April 24th and follow just one day later to fans in the United States on April 25th.

An early sneak peek of the new Home Video release revealed that Mick Foley will be hosting it — as the WWF Commissioner! We knew Foley would be joined by Enzo & Cass, and now we’re hearing of two more names that will stop by his messy office: Charlotte Flair and Bayley.

We can also exclusively reveal one match that’s definitely planned for the DVD compilation; a match from a certain WrestleMania Foley describes as the “greatest of all time”:

WWE Championship No Disqualification Match
The Rock vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin
WrestleMania X-Seven • April 1, 2001

WWE 'Best of The 2000's' DVD - 4 Disc Set!


Following some confusion surrounding the release, today we can unfortunately confirm that the “WrestleMania Monday” Blu-ray has indeed been cancelled in the United States.

That applies only to the Blu-ray edition and only to the US market as the 3-disc DVD version will be released worldwide, however it looks like the Blu-ray will wind up as a UK exclusive offering.

Therefore the 7 Blu-ray extras previously announced for the title will only be available in the UK.

On the subject of future WWE Blu-rays, early word is that major documentaries will see a release on both DVD and Blu-ray, while match compilations could now be produced DVD-only.

We recently broke the news of WWE’s plans to re-release “Owen – Hart of Gold” this month as a single-disc, documentary-only feature. The DVD should now be surfacing in stores.

If you can’t find a copy it can be ordered online here on Amazon.com.

Below we have a previously unseen shot of the new box art being used for the re-release:

Heads up – “The Best of RAW & SmackDown LIVE 2016” has been listed on WWEShop.com. That’s the next WWE Home Video release this year, scheduled for later this month.

Roadblock was erroneously added with UK cover art – but that won’t affect the product itself.

Check out our early photos of the new RAW/SD DVD, if you haven’t already:

Here’s a good idea for Vin Man & his WWE Homemedia; If he’s really losing money with the Blu-rays, then why not just shut down making PPV Blu-rays first, but carry on with the Special sets e.g. Best of 2000, Superstar sets like Austin/Triple H, Sets like OMG25, etc!!!

There’s a lot that can be said about the DVD vs. Blu Ray problem. I see the arguments about quality, but it’s more than that. I still mainly get the DVDs. The only Blu Rays I own right now are Bret & Shawn, Austin, War Games, Heyman, Bischoff. Everything else is DVD. A lot of it has to do with price & content. The Blu Ray releases of the past did contain some pretty nice extras to entice the purchase; however, at that time, the price was outrageous. Blu Ray sets in my area were priced $30-$40. Nowadays, the Blu… Read more »

That’s true actually, they always produce an epic digipak with more photos and artwork, as opposed to one measly inlay in an ugly blue plastic cover. BluRays actually a “cheaper” look to them, I find. And yeah, I’m good to forego the 14-minute Raw talking segment between a talent and a McMahon as an extra, if it saves me £10.

To be fair, those who vilify people who buy DVDs as people who need to get with the times could equally be criticised by people who believe that physical media is a thing of the past and everybody should move on to streaming / WWE Network / Netflix, etc.

Maybe one reason WWE Blu-rays are not selling well in the US is because they are limited to where you can buy them. FYE, Best Buy and Amazon/Shop WWE.com the main places to buy them, putting them in Walmart, Kmart and others might increase sales. The casual fan can not buy something he cannot see and thus does not know exists.

Bottom line is at the end of the day, WWE is a business & the purpose of their business is to make money. Clearly WWE wasn’t making enough or possibly losing money on the Blu-Ray releases to justify continuing them. Use your heads, they wouldn’t stop making them if they were bring in a profit just because. Weather that’s their own fault for the questionable extras they put on it or the fact that most viewers still haven’t upgraded to that technology (I don’t have a Blu-Ray player & don’t see the need to get one still), it is what… Read more »

Even if they made blu-rays with no extras at all, it’s still better than a dvd in every way. Video quality, audio quality, can fit more on a single disc, the discs themselves are more durable and more resistant to scratches than dvd. If we’re going by the bottom line, it’s this, home media overall has been dropping drastically year after year for the last few years. WWE just released their quarterly numbers again and you can see that home media is at a point where, even with just producing dvds, they are on the verge if barely breaking even… Read more »

I will Always Believe that Ultimate Warrior deserves a new Blu-ray of Unreleased Material, including Unreleased Matches, Appearances, and never before seen footage.
One Warrior Nation!

Areu ttolling? Ultimate Watrior got bluray sets in 2014 and 2015 full of matches.

I know this match is a repeat, but it’s the “best” of the 2000s, not a “rare/unreleased” matches set. Is anybody honestly gonna deny that this Rock/Austin match is one of the best matches of the 2000s? Imagine the equal amount of complaints if it was left off. They’re damned if they do, damned if they don’t on that one.

That is very disappointing! I will still get the DVD, it is better than nothing

Unfortunately, not for me. It’s not the same quality. When I had the 1994 Royal Rumble on DVD, I remember the quality… now comparing it with the 94 Rumble on the True story of the Royal Rumble blu-ray set, its smashing!

3 discs can fit up to 8-9 hours so how can 4 discs be just a little over 10 hours?

And until I see what matches are on “The Best of the 2000s”, I’m not buying into the hype just yet!

I would have 2nd with you there, but since it’s not a blu-ray, it’s a no for me too!

I don’t mind DVDs, blurays exclusives matches in recent years have been pretty poor.

If WWE is going to back to using 20 year old technology, might as well release on VHS, BETA and Laser Disc, and maybe VCDs too if they want to go backwards. Whats the point of WWE going HD when their main physical format is basically Standard Definition. HD on cable isn’t even comparable to Blu-ray quality due to limited bandwidth for cable companies. Pretty sad that indy companies like Evolve Wrestling and PWG have been been releasing only Blu-rays the last 2 years. Evolve completely moved away from DVDs and are only producing on Blu-ray. Ah well, might as… Read more »

Makes sense that would be on it, but I really hope we get some great gems and not re-released matches since it’s The Best of 2000’s and there’s plenty of content that can be used.

Am I the only one that feels since owen literally died in the ring the cover art should have spotlights above and a ring around owen? Bahahha wwe is stupid and classless …

The original actually had scaffolding on the cover, no joke. They covered it up by the time the final cover shipped.
