WWE’s Cancelled SUMMERSLAM 2017 Blu-Ray Now Up for Pre-Order, Big DVD ‘Price Crash’ Hits The UK

August 14, 2017 by Daniel Bee

WWE SummerSlam PPV - Graffiti Wall Logo

It’s officially SummerSlam Week and things are already heating up with your chance to pre-order the almost-cancelled SummerSlam 2017 Blu-ray and to save big on previous installments!

Last week we confirmed that this year’s SummerSlam will see a Blu-ray edition after all in the UK and Germany. You can now go grab it and show your support for the format here on Amazon.co.uk as the Blu-ray listing now appears alongside the DVD that was made available in recent weeks.

As of this moment the SummerSlam Blu-ray is unfortunately still cancelled in North America; WrestlingDVDNetwork.com has access to an internal schedule for the US market which at this time still only lists the DVD version, thus the above is speculated to be a European exclusive.

One glimmer of hope might be that Amazon.com has not yet listed SummerSlam 2017 for pre-order at all raising questions among WDN readers about WWE possibly still finalizing details on the Blu-ray — but we wouldn’t read too much into that.

Fans in the United States will however be getting a 2-disc DVD release next month which will accommodate the 4 hour event and extra features. With SummerSlam just days away we shouldn’t be far off from finding out exactly what those extras will be and what the cover artwork will look like.

I think Blu-Ray would sell better if retailers actually carried them. I mean, obviously this is a factor, right? Each time I go to Best Buy, FYE, or any record store, I’m always told to go get it online instead. With that type of mentality, employees are literally telling customers to leave the store. No wonder sales are down.

Idk if its one factor that’s leading to sets not selling good enough. Retailers not carrying them is probably one of them yeah. Another I think is the content of the sets bc even if all the retailers carried them, if people don’t like/care about the content of the set, they won’t buy it & retailers will respond with not carrying them as a result. Why would retailers carry something they feel will not sell when they’re in the business of making $? Another thing is if retailers don’t carry them, and buy retailers I assume u mean stores, one… Read more »

Everyone uses the internet these days. However, people still have the desire to go out and purchase things and have them right away rather than waiting for the mail. In many cases, people are forced to use the internet for their purchases as they are told the store does not carry the item, which is why so many stores are going out of business. Stores literally back people into a corner: go buy it online, or you cant have it. People are being told to go find the product elsewhere, leading to low in store sales. I agree content matters,… Read more »

Valid points here 🙂 I understand that desire. I have it at times too myself. However I rather buy it on Amazon and wait 1-2 days later for Prime shipping to ensure I will have it rather than go to stores and being backed into a corner. That’s me though. No that doesn’t mean ALL WWE releases have unappealing content. In fact that point could also extend to the subject matter itself. Cena for example is despite being part-time now a top guy. But there’s been so many Cena releases, it doesn’t mean it’ll have unappealing and/or repeated content or… Read more »

whoa, definitely go buy some of the SummerSlams that I don’t own on blu yet.

also hope that the 2017 one sells at least good enough for Fremantle to continue releasing the most important ppvs on that medium.

I hope so too. Time to go shopping for a region free Blu-ray player with streaming capability before the next big thing hits the market.

That’s a pretty sweet collection you have. What’s your favorite SummerSlam? Mine is 2001 overall by the thread of a needle. I’m a stickler for the period between the Attitude and Ruthless Aggression eras, my favorite wrestling years. The RVD/Jeff Hardy match was pure back and forth.

Thomas

@Corey C. My favourite SummerSlam events is 1998 to 2011, especially SummerSlam 2001

Thomas

@Corey C. I also have every Royal Rumble event from 1990 up to 2017, Survivor Series 1989 to Survivor Series 2016, also WrestleMania III to WrestleMania 33, King Of The Ring 1993 to 2002, my era is the Attitude / Ruthless Aggression Eras as well, so many Summer-Slam events from 1989 to 2016 which I also have on VHS

No kidding, you’re well set if the Network unexpectedly goes down. My collection is no where near that size, mostly consists of event and wrestler bios.

SummerSlam 01′ delivered. Solid matches across the card (+ the memorable Taker/Page feud for all the wrong reasons). 2002 is a close second for me though.

So many changes going on in early 2000s, both good and bad. WWE trying to pay attention to quality after WCW buyout. 2003 had an excellent roster.

@Corey C. SummerSlam 2001 was one of the best SummerSlam events in history with SummerSlam 2000 as well

SummerSlam 2000 definitely brought in the new Millennium and JR’s epic reactions on the mic.

@Corey C. and @Thomas: u guys mind if I get in on this conversation? If The Network is gone which hopefully not bc I am/have been a subscriber since launch in 2014. And there’s a ton of content there most of which isn’t released through any other format yet. I own: DVDs – This Is My Yard, My Journey, Life & Times of Mr Perfect, Randy Savage Ultimate Collection, Undertaker: Tombstone & Deadliest Matches, Bret Hart Best There Is Was Ever Will Be Blurays – Best of Sting, Into the Line, Bottom Line, Owen Hart, Macho Man, True Story of… Read more »

Nice collection of books there 🙂 And you”re not changing the subject (technically) as a collection is a collection whether it’s blurays/dvds, books, or anything else. The thing about The Network is while I agree with u that its here to say, remember WWF New York, later renamed The World, that restaurant they had in the early 2000’s? Good business at first, eventually went out of business less than anywhere close to 10yrs. If only it existed when WWF was doing their best business numbers/ratings/money wise, The Monday Night Wars/Attitude Era in 1997-1998. Same said for The Network. I know… Read more »

Nice! I totally forgot about WWF New York. Has flashbacks on Abdullah the Butcher’s now defunct BBQ joint in Atlanta which I wanted to go to. Got some WWF music too. My twin brother has most of games from PS2/PS3/PSP generation but I do have the 3 Legends of Wrestling games (second one is British version), WCW Nitro, Thunder for PS1, WM on SNES, WM 19 and both Day of Reckoning games for GameCube. I also have a foam finger singed by Tatanka a family member got for me at a Jacksonville Suns (now Jumbo Shrimps) game.

Beautiful. Tatanka was one of my favorites from the early 90s cartoony original PG WWF back when I was a kid who was scared of Taker lol. Yeah, music is part of my collection too: – Wrestlemania: The Album (where there were various tracks sung by a particular talent like The Man In Black track done by Taker. Interesting is Simon Cowell tried to sign Taker to a music/record deal after this song or so I read.) – WWF The Music Vol.1 (Full Metal: The Album)-last Vol released – RAW: Greatest Hits – Uncaged 1 & 2 (hope there’s a… Read more »

You gotta add Ric flairs book “to be the man” to your collection. It’s tremendous for the story’s he tells that you probably haven’t heard anywhere else. Having read about 75 wrestling books it’s number 2 in my opinion as to how good it is . number 1 for me still is have a nice day as I’m sure it is in many peoples opinion.

Corey C.

I can listen to Flair’s stories all day long and never get bored. Same thing with Foley. I bargain hunt all my books. Only paid a dollar for each (ultimate opportunist).

Amazon usually has used copies of books pretty cheap. I still want to read Diana Hart Smith’s book called under the mat even though Bret and others said it was all lies and Martha Hart talks about it in the Owen Hart book. It’s a good chunk of change to buy used on Amazon. I even had my local library try to get it for me and after a search they told me no library in the world has it. Don’t know if that’s true but apparently it’s real hard to find and isn’t cheap for a used copy online.… Read more »

I really am curious as to how many more wrestling blue rays sell in these places as opposed to the United States?? What are blue ray sales really booming in the UK and Germany?? Im missing something here. I really wish I knew the answer.

whut2
Guest

while I don’t know about particular wrestling, the overall numbers for bluray sales in Germany have declined much less than for dvds. of course bluray did not make up the same percentage to begin with. in 2013 approx. 88 million dvds were sold, compared to approx. 28 mio. blurays (this is the highest peak bd sales have ever reached). by 2016, this numbers has shrunken to approx. 60 mio. dvds and approx. 26 mio. blurays. so compared to its dvd rival, the sales for bluray have hardly gone down. generally speaking, while streaming is gaining more traction here, we have… Read more »

I can’t speak with certainty since I live in the US but I read wrestling indies in UK like Southside and WCPW are growing fast. Wrestling’s popularity over there might be more enduring even if it’s not as big numbers-wise to US, whose larger and has more people. This may have nothing to do with why WWE had more Blu-ray releases in UK for many years but it could explain why Blu-ray sold better there when WWE first dipped its toes in the format a decade ago. UK is WWE’s second largest market after US.

no they aren’t thats why it was cancelled but due to people beign upset they’re giving it one final chance, it was all in their statement…

whut2
Guest
whut2

that doesn’t explain why there are over 30 bluray releases that haven’t been released in the US (afaik mostly ppvs).

at least at some point several years ago, they did enough sales to justify producing them.

I’d like to know what WWE’s problem is with the United States? Blu-Rays still sell good here like Europe and yet we get our version cancelled?

Corey C.
Guest
Corey C.

Size matters. U.S. is huge logistically. Harder to penetrate market successfully. High license fees hurt Sony’s Blu-ray march before more options like movie download and streaming came along. Blu-ray is a hard sell by itself now (hence combo packs at physical retailers to maximize profit/floor space ratio to combat online competitors like Amazon. I think these are the main reasons (for the U.S. at least). Sadly, 9 times out of 10 convenience beats quality. Just look at VHS vs. Bettamax or CD vs. SACD. Just my take.

Corey C.
Guest
Corey C.

Hard to know WWE’s exact reasons. Just offering a general idea why in the grander scheme of things.

So is the SummerSlam blu-ray only cancelled in other countries like the USA?

whut2
Guest
whut2

yes.

but in practice you could probably import the UK bluray. of course depending on the country you need a bluray player that is able to play region b blurays (of course, if you live in Australia, New Zealand or any other of the countries that also fall under that region, you don’t need a special player).

does anybody know if this newest ‘summerslam’ u.k. blu-ray will be region-free?

whut2
Guest

although there is a workaround, albeit one that is a bit of a hassle: if you own a desktop pc with a bluray burner, there are programs to copy the disc to your harddrive and then reburn it onto a blank bluray.

and since the region codes for blurays are only a digital thing (unlike dvds, with pal and ntsc being a technically different format) the burned bluray could be run by a regular US player.

I don’t think it would. I think you would need a region free player.
