REVEALED: First Look Photos & Intro for WWE ‘Then, Now, Forever: Evolution of Women’s Division’ DVD

June 18, 2018 by Daniel Bee

One week from the release of WWE’s history-making, first-ever Women’s DVD “Then, Now, Forever: The Evolution of WWE’s Women’s Division” (hitting the UK next Monday via Amazon.co.uk and the USA next Tuesday via Amazon.com) it’s time for your exclusive first look!

Today, WrestlingDVDNetwork.com presents photos of the final packaging you can expect to find in stores next week and a sneak peek at the DVD’s intro video too.

The 3-disc set will pack in 8 hours and 50 minutes of content that showcases the history of women’s wrestling in WWE — it begins 34 years ago and journeys to the present day “Women’s Evolution” era. And here’s what it will look like in your collection…

“Then, Now, Forever: The Evolution of WWE’s Women’s Division” is a compilation of 22 matches involving the most influential, ground-breaking and legendary female WWE Superstars and Divas to grace the squared circle. Those matches include many “firsts” for the division including the first-ever women’s cage match in WWE and the more recent women’s Money in the Bank, Hell in a Cell, Elimination Chamber and Royal Rumble matches – and yes, the Rumble is shown in full!

In between every bout will be documentary-style chapters that “Spotlight” more than 20 different performers including Mae Young, Wendi Richter, Sensational Sherri, Alundra Blayze, Ivory, Victoria, Lita, Molly Holly, Trish Stratus, Mickie James, AJ Lee, Paige, Natalya, The Bellas Twins, Bayley, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, Carmella, Alexa Bliss and Ronda Rousey.

As is now the norm, the U.S. release is housed in standard Amaray packaging that’s slimmer than the Digipaks we traditionally saw produced for a 3-disc set. A paper insert is found inside the case which details the full content of the discs, while those discs are again ‘stacked’ together in one holder.

Let’s take a closer look! Thanks goes out to WDN reader @jayjayrock206 for the pics.

    Is this set likely to be released in digital HD anywhere? I’m a huge fan of women’s wrestling, absolutely love the idea of this set, but come on. DVDs are obsolete. Why on earth would anyone be content with SD when we have HD? It’s like choosing VHS over DVD. I understand the Blu-Ray licensing costs, but if it’s too expensive to produce physically, they should at least release it digitally in HD.

    • LP1 says:

      It most likely will be. Just about every home video is also released on digital HD.

      • ahunter8056 says:

        Really? Where? I’ve looked for recent releases on iTunes, Amazon Video, WWE Network etc, but I’ve not been able to find a single release from the past couple of years. It looked to me like they stopped releasing digital HD a few years ago.

        • LP1 says:

          iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, etc. still put up new releases, usually just PPVs and documentaries, not so much for match compilation releases. At least not that I’ve seen recently. You have to type in the exact title instead of just typing in “WWE”.

  2. zac says:

    mae young classic final was on September 12th. There’s a typo

  3. The Midnight Jobber says:

    I guess WWE figures if stacking is good enough for Pringles chips, it’s good enough for their DVDs.

  4. Shane C Montgomery says:

    Even the disc’s are identical with recent sets. These look very similar to the Randy Savage and Hardys DVDs, same generic design, color, etc.

    • whut says:

      the decreasing dvd/bd sales have become sort of a self fulfilling prophecy. like if they put less effort into it (which they seem to), of course chances are that sales are going to be going down.

  5. Kenchampz says:

    I still prefer the disc have their own slots rather than stacking them up. Easy to break and scratch the surface of it. Lazy packaging.

    • RabidHeat says:

      Well IMO scratches only happen through lazy handling of the DVDs by the owner. Just treat them with care when removing.

    • David says:

      At least its better than the cheap crappy cardboard packaging they had with discs housed in slots with the back rubbing against the cardboard. The 3 Disc Kane DVD, Summerslam and Survivor Series Anthologies were packaged this way. They were guaranteed to have surface scratches on them when pulling out.

      However, i think in later prints they fixed the packaging with the Kane DVD using the regular case with the flipper.

  6. andemoine winrow says:

    Love the trailer but the fact of stacking discs on top of each other is VERY appalling. You can accidentally break one or 2 of the disc. I’m picking this up but i’m going to’WWW.E-BAY.COM’ to buy a new 3 discs holder. This is ridiculous.

    • RabidHeat says:

      Literally never had one of these “accidents” with this style of packaging. Maybe it can happen if you rip them out with reckless abandon, but then that’s kinda your fault. Am I the only actual person on here who looks after their stuff, because the general reaction to this packaging has been so needy-sounding? I’m actually blown away by how much of a problem this seems to be for everyone. Are people really that ham-fisted when handling their DVDs?

      • Shane C Montgomery says:

        You seem to harass anyone who complaines about the Warner distribution of WWE DVDs. Why is that and why does it bother you so much? Your endless defence of Warner/WWE is very odd and I can’t seem to figure you out, unless you are just a major troll with too much spare time.

        • RabidHeat says:

          But in the same token, my original point is why does the packaging bother everyone so much when they could just treat their belongings with consideration? So you’re asking why does it bother me so much; I’m asking why does it bother them so much. The answer is we’re both allowed to ask that question, and you don’t get to dictate what I’m allowed to say. So … yeah.

  7. Justin says:

    Getting it even though I still dislike the idea of stacking dvds.
