WWE DVDs 2016 - United States Title vs. Shane McMahon

Back in October we confirmed the 2016 WWE Home Video Schedule, which revealed two DVD/Blu-ray projects listed in the same slot – Shane McMahon and “Best of the U.S. Title”.

Both were under consideration by the company, but a decision has now been made!

So, which one made the cut? Exclusively below is an updated schedule. Once again, it does not include PPVs and is a rough guide as the later titles and release times are subject to change.

  1. Brad Attitude says:

    I hope the US Title set follows the same trend as the intercontinental championship dvd and go with the different eras and matches on each disc.

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      i am kinda hoping more of what world title was short bio with 1st disk nwa 2nd wcw and 3rd wwe and bluray wise just add bit more from all 3

  2. SCSA says:

    I’ve been dreaming for the first Royal Rumble sets on Blu-Ray like 93/94/95/96/99/2001! Now when I finally hear that they’ll be a set called ‘True story of Royal Rumble’, It’s due to be out in a years time! ๐Ÿ™ Dec 2016 ๐Ÿ™

    I’ll probably be dead by then ๐Ÿ™

    • Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Life says:

      The Rattlesnake you are, you’ll live to see it, I’m sure.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      True story of Royal Rumble is my favorite release the coming year, but I would not set my expectations that high on many rumble matches to be included.. the ones you mention anyway, is not filmed in HD, and therefor not that important if they were to be included..unless of course you do not own them on DVD already.

      I would really love the whole PPV from 2008, in uncut and unedited form, since its the first PPV they shot in HD.

      Rumble PPV always been my favorite, Mania not even surpassing it.. so I can not wait for it, and I do in that sense follow your way of thinking.. buuut, stick around, okay.. December 2016 is just around the corner.. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • SCSA says:

        Thanks for your thoughts, though I’m not asking for all my favourite rumble matches to be shown especially in Blu-Ray, though I would appreciate seeing bits of them.

        As for sticking around, this year was slow enough! I doubt 2016 will just zoom to the end mate!

        • Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Life says:

          Get what you mean.. every year seem like there’s a bit fewer great releases than year before..

          Sadly I think that in – say, 10 years time, to the max – we hardly gonna see any physical media.. in the end, everything’s gonna be on demand…which I am not very keen on, since I really hate paying for something all the time.

  3. me says:

    I am glad it is US Title. This is their only chance to do this after the renewed importance the title has right now. If they pushed it back it would just keep getting delayed and eventually forgotten.

  4. Paul says:

    I think I said previously that if it was a straight choice between Shane and the US Title then I wanted the US Title all day long

    I hope they make it in the same style as the other title history releases

    The match listing will be interesting. They could almost do two volumes with NWA/WCW on Volume 1 and WWE on Volume 2. They won’t do this though so I rather hope they bias it towards NWA/WCW

    The Chris Benoit issue is a tricky one. He was such a big part of the title in both WCW and WWE that there are going to be some big holes in the history of the title if he is ignored. I would personally be in favour of including one or two matches of his but like other recent releases including him, have it edited to remove his entrance and any praise of him. Not sure if there were any multi-man matches involving him in WCW but there surely were in WWE so that might be a way to go ie less focus on him

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      i think it should be 3 disk one how world title was 1st disk bio and nwa then 2nd disk wcw 3rd wwe but doing that your limits are so short but thats why we got bluray for bit extra. AS far as benoit hes in dvds chamber dvd mitb dvd so its dvds like that he will get in he was not in ic or world cause i think the events were to fresh but years have passed so maybe. i would hope if lets say 3rd disk is wwe one that they do add eddie vs benoit from vengeance 03 the resurrection of the us title cause thats a pretty important match. gotta wait and see

  5. RabidHeat says:

    Have we had clarification yet on whether this will just cover the incarnation of the US Title in WWE, or is this like the previous WWE, IC and WHC “History of” Sets, including matches from NWA/WCW, etc.?

  6. RnRisKing says:

    Magnum TA winning the U.S. title from Wahoo McDaniel in a cage.

  7. RCS1988 says:

    Some good titles, but not a good enough for well rounded releases for 2016.

  8. Jason says:

    Glad the Shane O’ Mac project isn’t getting the green light. However I’m curious how the U.S. Title DVD/bluray will look since Chris Benoit’s matches will be omitted even though his SummerSlam 2005 vs. Orlando Jordan was the shortest in its history.

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      by ingoring it i bet they will just say eddie won the us title in a tournament then skip to a sd title match or maybe big show winning it, 05 06 wise us title again just skip it until like lashley wins it 07 skip then have say mvp won it then right to mvp vs flair or matt hardy match

  9. Shane C. Montgomery says:

    The US Title DVD is going to be great, glad this was the one they are rolling with.

  10. Jeff Copeland says:

    that sucks for shane o mac but really what are you gonna do bio if hes not involved then no point. as far as us title i think that one will be good but its gonna be sorta lacking with out benoit from wcw and wwe us title. but i think better choice was made BTW THE COMMENT SECTION IS STILL BROKEN!!

  11. Mick says:

    Why couldnt we have both

  12. Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Life says:

    Was kind of expected it the US Champ-compilation to win that battle, since Poster-boy Cena has been carried that title for good bit of 2015. But I still am somewhat disappointed that they appearently are putting Shane O’mac on the shelf.. for now.

  13. Mark Markson says:

    I’m happy about this. I don’t think a Shane McMahon set will feature any matches I haven’t seen before. Hopefully the US title set will include some rare matches too.

    By the way, how come the WWE Network Updates page isn’t working?

  14. LP1 says:

    They made the correct choice with the US Title. So much more can be done with that. If they include the old NWA/WCW US Title that goes back to the 70s, and not just the WWE version of the US Title, then this this set has tremendous potential.
