REVIEW: Is The WWE ‘Undertaker: The Streak 21-1’ DVD Coffin Worth Owning Next Week?

“THE STREAK”. Say that to any wrestling fan, no matter how long they’ve been a fan, and they will know exactly what it means: The Undertaker’s unprecedented win streak from the grandest stage of them all, the grandest event of them all, WrestleMania.

For my money; be it $44.95 or even $9.99 (that one time) “The Streak”, in its latter years at least, was the biggest match on every WrestleMania PPV card. After all, we see championships change hands all the time, but “The Steak” was special as it was something we only saw defended once a year. In many respects, this streak was comparable to how fans in the 1960’s and 1970’s saw the NWA World Heavyweight Championship – it was only defended in their areas on a very select basis, BUT that night might have been the night when the title changed hands!

WWE Undertaker: The Streak 21-1 DVD - Review

“The Streak” was ended at WrestleMania XXX, and to commemorate the most impressive win streak in all of pro-wrestling, WWE is releasing “Undertaker: The Streak 21-1 (R.I.P Edition)” – a special DVD set packed with each and every match of Undertaker’s Streak over five discs.

I’m sure you are all well aware that we had a Streak DVD back in 2012 (review of that linked to below), which commemorated the “20-0” milestone, however this set commemorates the entire streak. Additionally, 2012 was a whole different time for WWE DVDs as this was the very tail end of the “bleeps and blurs” era where all mentions of “WWF” were banished – both visually and audibly. Here on the R.I.P. Edition all the WWF mentions are completely intact – in fact this is the first time many of these matches have been released on DVD in their near original state.

In addition to the “WWF” references and logos, themes such as Limp Bizkit’s “Rollin” are restored for the first time in a very long time. Sadly, the set isn’t without its edits though. For example, the Bossman hanging has been removed (as usual) and the Johnny Cash and Metalica themes have been removed WrestleMania XXVII (also as usual) – but hey, you can’t win them all!

WWE Undertaker: The Streak 21-1 DVD - ReviewIt’s a little bit of a shame that WWE didn’t give us any special features this time. In fact the closest they get is the very quick two-minute introduction on disc one. While it would have been nice to see a sixth disc of bonus footage/extras, this one is really all about the wooden coffin.

The coffin is the key here, it doesn’t matter what anyone says about the matches (many of which were incredible) – you’re either sold on the fancy packaging or you’re not. Frankly, it might be the best looking box set they’ve produced in years! (PHOTOS)

The matches are out there on DVD elsewhere. I’d venture to guess most of you reading this already own most (if not all) of them, and those who don’t own them all, you’ll likely have access to them on the WWE Network. Just like the “Macho Man: Randy Savage Story” box set from last year, you guys and girls are going to be buying this one because you are a collector. I’m sure you’re not walking around the streets in your fancy Macho Man shades and bandanas – instead that set has a proud place on your DVD shelf.

As a WWE DVD collector, I have a spot where I know my “Undertaker: The Streak 21-1” DVD coffin is going to live – how about you, do you have your spot cleared ready for next week?

I preordered mine from Amazon. Disc 3 on my set is completely blank. I can’t be the only one.

I find it very hard to believe that I can still order one of these if only 666 were produced…

They made 2101, it says so on the plaque in the picture. Where are you getting 666? That is just the number supposedly in the most demand.

They made 666 (supposedly), for north America region 1. and 2101 for UK region 2.

MIne does not have any number on it. I think they dropped the Limited edition for the US release.

Amazon.com’s product listing

“WWE: Undertaker ‘The Streak’ 21-1 Coffin Box Set (DVD)

An update of the 2012 “20-0″ release to celebrate/commemorate the end of The Streak. Limited edition of 666 copies in a special wooden coffin case.”

That’s where we and others got the figure.

I actually would wear the Macho Man t-shirt, glasses & bandana out in public than purchase the streak dvd. Not a big UnderwearTaker fan.

You actually think that juvenile “UnderwearTaker” joke is funny?

@Daniel Bee or anyone: I don’t believe anyone here would have an accurate answer to this question unless WDN had any contact with WWE about the matter and sorry if it’s been asked and answered before. But any idea why WWE did not have this set as a bluray? I already own the previous Streak set on bluray and am subscribed to the Network so I have all of Taker’s WM matches. I was just curious. The previous Streak set was released on both bluray and DVD formats. I figured since blurays were released, the DVD’s became obsolete for a… Read more »

Glad this set is finally out. When you look at the content, you have to wonder why this release has received so much attention. I hope we all can start focusing on other DVD sets now.

i feel like this is a pointless cash grab. you could still keep the orginal the streak dvd and just find vs punk 2013 and lesnar 2014, personaly only punk is really worth finding. this dvd could of went to rick rude or someone else maybe another kane dvd, its been since 08 since we had the last one

I agree with Rick Rude/Kane point. Rick hasn’t gotten any set done on him. A documentary is certainly overdue as is a proper Jake Roberts documentary. Kane deserves a doc too. Sting recently got one, albeit pretty short for such a long career. Owen Hart’s getting one. Dynamite Kid should get one one day as should Rude, Martel, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, Booker T, DDP, Sid, Vader, Kane, Taker to name just some individuals. I can see Kane getting one. Taker too once he retires.

scott hall is getting one in 2016 so this dvd is just for takers retirement tour this year going into wm 32

I bought the set while being led to believe that they would be numbered 1-666. Without them being numbered I feel like they probably made as many as will sell.

As do I….& when I ordered mine everyone was telling us that there was gonna be a new documentary included as well, (even though now, some will say they never said a new doc would be included).

Daniel Bee

I’ve been open about it to you before that yes, we speculated that there could be an extended version of the documentary on here (seemed feasible) but we certainly did not confirm it. We only confirmed that there wasn’t one, when we knew for sure.

The UK numbering and outer box – fancy additions to have but I still think you’ll love the coffin itself.

WDN is not the site I’m speaking of now, just because I made a statement on this website does not mean that I’m talking about THIS particular site, I just use this one as a sounding board like everyone else on here…..one of the places I did read it though was on the “Inquisitor” website months before it was announced here, guess that’s what I get for reading the online version of the National Enquirer lol

Daniel Bee

Wait, a site talking about a new WWE DVD months before we do?

Now I know you’re crazy. 😉

I’m happy for ya but I know what I read & where I read it.

where ever this -everyone- you talking bout that you may have heard about a doc being included, it is NOT on WDN.. I just finished looking back in May and August archives on this site, and I can not find anything that stated that there would be a doc..

when you say -everyone-, you should’nt, but instead be specific on who made those false statements..

I assume, WDN team gets rumors and confirmed informations to lead on further to us fans, but I never experienced any kind of delibraly false informations..

If I was a millionaire I’d buy it, but I just can’t justify the price-tag when I own every WrestleMania unblurred on DVD already. There’s literally not one second of footage in this set that I would need this for. In many ways, I do wish they’d just stuffed the 2012 short documentary on there listed as an extra, despite not being the whole story (they did it for the Brock Collectors Edition DVD). I may have justified the purchase in my head then since I don’t own the previous release, and it would have just put this set over… Read more »

I’d still rather have the packaging here in the US that the UK is getting, (I’d probably keep it sealed & unopened it if that were the case) ours isn’t even individually numbered & compared to the UK’s, our packaging sucks (just compare the pics) but you can’t win them all I guess & I’m still looking forward to this.
