Remember these? In October WWE sent out a “Fan Council” survey which proposed several new DVD ideas, all slated to be single-disc budget titles priced around $9.99 each.
 

WWE DVD 2014 Survey

We can confirm now that one of them will definitely be released next year – “Music of WWE“. This may be the beginning of a series similar to the Superstar Collection whereby several of the above mentioned DVDs are released over the course of the year.

Below is the official synopsis.

Music has been integral in WWE history, especially anthems for all the greatest WWE Superstars. Since Sgt. Slaughter first made his entrance to the Marine Corp hymn in the early 80’s music themes have become synonymous with the Superstars themselves. Just hearing the first few notes brings the crowd to their feet. They are the songs that let the WWE Universe know that business is about to pick up. Now, get behind the music and learn the inside story behind the timeless anthems of WWE and the superstars.

We’re hearing that 25 tracks make up the DVD, with a behind the scenes look at the role entrances themes play on each Superstar’s identity. There will also be involvement with WWE music composer Jim Johnston, who is interviewed to give a back story on tracks.

Best of WCW PPV Matches (DVD/BR) – March 11th

[…] Jamie: Not having Network access there’s not too much I can add here. However, I did pick up on Craig’s point about more behind the scenes type documentaries, which I would potentially be very interested in. Not behind the scenes in a kayfabe shattering way, but a look at what goes into making a Raw, Smackdown or PPV a reality. Those giant sets don’t erect themselves! It would be interesting to see the work someone like Kevin Dunn gets through in a typical week. Another candidate is the aforementioned Jim Johnston, and we might be in luck. I saw… Read more »

Can’t wait. Been wanting to hear Johnston talk about WWE music for decades. Finally getting my wish. Iconic themes like Stone Cold, Taker, Edge, Rock are an absolute must because when the glass shatters, the bell tolls, “You Think You Know Me”, and “If Ya Smell”, you know immediately who’s coming out.

As for other sets, Brothers Of Destruction, Top 25 entrances, and Best of Shotgun all get my vote. Also, a Best Of Sunday Night HEAT would be a nice collection too.

I would rather see them just put the “Piledriver ” album on DVD/BRD. At worst the videos would be nostalgic to see again.

Out of that list the only sets that interest me are the Best of Velocity & Shotgun Saturday Night!!!

Come on people. A little variety never hurt. Besides this is only one of the one disc DVDs and there is room for plenty more of those. I want to see Velocity and Shotgun too but you cant just have match comps. Personally I think Santino Comedy Hour sounds fun.

I hope at least it will come with a CD with unreleased themes on it (from the Classic and Attitude Eras). Fans are asking for a WWE Music Anthology #2 for years! With the approach of Wrestlemania XXX, there’s not a better time to do a special compilation album.

And yes, velocity did have some great unknown matches, especially amongst cruiserweights. Still, it was only the d show.

@Indy fan. Calm the f down, dude. What do u mean the surveys mean nothing? Obviously a lot of people picked the music video idea. Noteveryone has the same preferences as you, get real. I also don’t know why you think this means none of the other ones on there will be released. If you look at the surveys of the past, they always end up releasing multiple ones that were heavily picked. Im sure the wcw ppv set won’t be the only one released from the survey it was on. It’s not a winner take all situation.

It appears amazon may also be having issues with the raw set being in stock because I’m still waiting on mine to ship.

I’m still waiting on my RAW anniv DVDs from WWE Shop. I placed the order on Monday and it says “Processing”. Has anyone received theirs from WWE Shop?

Nope, I’m in the same situation. It’s really amateurish to sell more stock than they have available. I’ve tried cancelling, but they won’t let me. Farcical.
