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!

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.

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 »

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 agree, it’s awful that we have to feel like we’re walking on eggshells posting our opinion, but that’s the reality! 🙁

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.

SCSA

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.

Until I see the match listing, I’m not quite sold on this.

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.

But the Colisuem Video matches were “released” … on the Coliseum videos, lol. So obviously they won’t be on here.

Maybe, but the title of the DVD says ‘Unreleased’. But I’m used to your salty responses by now, so carry on.

Haha no one’s being salty. The title of the DVD is “Unseen Matches 1986-1995”
