EXCLUSIVE: Official Details on WWE ‘Unreleased 1986-1995’ DVD – RARE Owen Hart & Taz Matches?

WWE 'Unreleased: 1986-1995' DVD - Rare Matches!

WWE’s anticipated Unreleased Matches 1986-1995 DVD (to be filled with unseen gems!!) is now…

“WWE Unreleased: 1986-1995”

 
With a new, simplified title comes an updated, official synopsis:

WWE unlocks the vault and brings you never-before-seen matches from 1986-1995. Check out these unreleased hidden gems featuring some of the greatest Superstars in WWE history.

— WWE has gone deep into its vault and uncovered exclusive content that you can only find right here on this set,

— Features Superstars such as Randy Savage, Ultimate Warrior, Andre the Giant, Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, Mr. Perfect and more,

— Never-before-seen matches from the years 1986 through 1995!

This week, WrestlingDVDNetwork.com has exclusively learned that in addition to the Superstars mentioned above WWE has plans to include a rare Owen Hart match from 1986 and another involving Taz — possibly a WWE “tryout” — from 1993.

Initial speculation on the Owen match is it being one from a July All Star Wrestling taping in Brantford, Ontario when he took on Steve Lombardi. Our hunch on the latter; a Wrestling Challenge taping from Portland, Maine, which saw The Tazmaniac face Scott Taylor in May of that year.

When we hear more on the matches that made the cut, so will you! And of course the 3-disc DVD set will also feature newly-filmed host segments with Sean Mooney and Charly Caruso.

Those Owen & Taz matches would be rare & unreleased for sure. I’m hoping though that this’ll have some house show matches (if the company records them), dark matches/segments, “PPV/Coliseum Video exclusive” content as well.

Dark matches for sure. House show matches as long as they never aired on TV. Coliseum Video matches wouldn’t make sense since it wouldn’t fit the unseen and unreleased theme.

Matches that were specifically taped for Coliseum Video, but were never released on any Coliseum Videos would count as unseen & unreleased.

It’s kind of a long shot, but if by some chance the Roddy Piper vs Undertaker body bag match was filmed at some house show in Maine in 1991 I hope they include it!

Whoa! Never knew about this! And I’ve been following Taker as a fan of his since he debuted in 1990 at SSeries! Speaking of Taker & Piper, I’m hoping that tag match with Taker & Macho Man vs Flair & Berzerker. One can find it online so I guess it was a TV taping or whatever it was but it’s not in English. P.S. Typing about Taker tag matches reminds me of how he was supposed to team with Flair vs Hogan & Piper at MSG in 92. They even ran promos about it during those Sean Mooney hosted Main… Read more »

I never knew that Piper and taker even had a body bag match. I would buy this set for that one match alone, but having said that it probably won’t be on there cause we want it to be. They will have a Barry Horriblewitz match instead.

This has the potential to be the best set this year. Hope the matches have commentary, at least most of them but I don’t want to get into that argument again.if there’s commentary then it will definitely be a better release in my opinion.I’m gonna shut up now so I dont start another war on here about my opinions about commentary.

I just watched the 1992 “Wrestling Grudge Matches” Coliseum Video the other night, where Sean Mooney and Lord Alfred Hayes try desperately to justify why all these totally random matches are supposedly “grudge” matches. Mooney: “I overheard Terry Taylor backstage saying that El Matador can’t even defeat a cow, Lord Alfred” / “We have seldom ever seen Big Boss Man in tag team action” (lol, despite the years as one of the Twin Towers?!)

For me to buy this ‘Unseen matches’ only on DVD, not Blu-Ray would have to include matches like Bret Hart Vs Roddy Piper – IC Title (WM8), Quebeckers Vs Bret & Owen – Tag Titles (RR94).

Also Shawn Michaels w/Sherri Vs Rick Martel, Nailz Vs Virgil, The Undertaker Vs Kamala (SS92)… as well as other matches including Doink Vs Crush (WM9), & others

So for you to buy this, you literally want all matches that have been seen before. On a DVD called “Unseen Matches”. Right.

No, I’m just talking about the matches I want, that I don’t have on any of my previous DVD’s/Blu-Rays, all from the timeline on this set.

I’m sure they’ve been released before, but I can’t go ahead & buy every single set that involves a certain match that I really want to see.

I like the ideas of debuting squash matches on a superstars yet but they rarely do that anymore. I’m still looking forward to this set.

I look forward to this. Something I’ve been waiting for many years. The Taz match probably wouldn’t be his match against Ray Oddyssey from the 8/19/91 Superstars taping. Hopefully they include a Konnan match on the set.

I really hope this isn’t like the Attitude Era one which was all dark matches. I wanted rare Coliseum Video and TV matches with a small amount of dark matches and live event matches.

What a shame. WWE should have at least released it in a DVD & Blu-ray combo, like they did with Royal Rumble 2011 & Elimination Chamber 2011 and give people the choice to watch it on DVD or Blu-ray. That’s what WWE should be doing with all their upcoming Home Video releases, instead of going backwards on technology. It would have made a great Blu-ray release with a few extra bonus matches.

or people could put on their big-boy pants and get blu-ray players, since it’s 2017 and all

I’m curious why they specially chose the years 1986-1995. Not that I have a problem with those years, those were some of my all time favorite years. But why not just open it wide up to include unreleased matches from any era? This way they can continue to release multiple Unreleased volumes and not have to pidgeon-hole themselves to just those specific years.

Vintage Simon

My guess is that the best unreleased matches from 1996-2000 were already on the Attitude Era set, and by 2001, the nature of TV tapings had changed to the point that pretty much everything being recorded was for the actual TV shows. 1986-1995 seems a good fit because they had those mammoth TV tapings several times a month where a great deal of the content was taped and never intended for release. For instance, The Undertaker vs. Dusty Rhodes took place at a TV taping a few days before Survivor Series 1990, and that’s the kind of hidden gem I’d… Read more »

Right on the money. The best Unreleased stuff from 1996 onwards was on Attitude Era Vol. 3. This is effectively a prequel to that. Any anything pre-1986, you’re probably getting a bit too ‘old school’ to expect high sales.
