BREAKING: WWE To Release ‘KURT ANGLE: Essential Collection’ DVD in 2017 – Exclusive First Details

April 6, 2017 by Daniel Bee

WWE Releasing 'Kurt Angle: The Essential Collection' DVD in 2017!

It’s True! It’s True! 2017 WWE Hall of Fame inductee and current RAW General Manager Kurt Angle will be getting the Home Video treatment this summer — his first-ever WWE DVD has already been made available to pre-order here on Amazon.com.

The new listing confirms that the release is on the way for August 1st, 2017 in the United States with an official title of “Kurt Angle: The Essential Collection”.

Amazon’s page and the name given to the product infer a collection of Angle’s greatest matches, and since it went live we’ve been able to confirm the match compilation format. Therefore this one is expected to be a DVD-only offering with no plans for a Blu-ray edition at this time.

However, WrestlingDVDNetwork.com can exclusively reveal that the DVD, a 3-disc set, will not only feature matches but also a brand new, previously unseen interview with the man himself!

A Kurt Angle DVD has been under consideration by the company since at least April of 2016 and now, one year later, it has become a reality with his recent return to the WWE family.

The official synopsis for the 2017 release follows below:

 

“Kurt Angle: The Essential Collection”

It’s true! It’s true! Kurt Angle has had some of the most epic matchups in WWE history. Now for the first time ever, you can watch them all with Kurt Angle: The Essential Collection.

Relive all of his rivalries with Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, John Cena, Edge, Shawn Michaels, Triple H and more in this complete collection.

I’m sure it will be great for those that want the best Angle matches in one place, but since I own every PPV he was ever on and all the best Raw/SD matches and moments on other compilations, I think this probably won’t be an essential purchase for me. I’ll likely wait for the inevitable documentary set a year or two later, like I did with Sting’s Into the Light. Unless this turns out like “Best of Sting” where it’s not the best, but a lot of rare TV matches – I might then consider it.

Hopefully we’ll see a Blu-Ray release in the UK. Although there’s no documentary as such, it would be nice if they included his recent sitdown interviews with the WWE Network (or at least weave them in between matches). As for matches, I’m hoping we might get bouts against Chris Jericho at KOTR 2000 (as opposed to the final), The Rock at No Mercy 2000 (which has never been on a DVD set bar the Tagged Classics), The Undertaker at Survivor Series 2000, Triple H at Royal Rumble 2001, and Booker T on Smackdown in 2001. These feel ‘essential’ enough to… Read more »

Just once I’d like to read a thread without the words “Benoit” or “Repeats”

You can’t not expect to not hear Benoit especially when Angle is remembered for having such amazing matches with him. It’s some of his best work of his career.

Angle is remembered for having amazing matches with so many other people. Benoit is a very minuscule piece of that puzzle

Pete Doyle
Guest
Pete Doyle

Benoit was one of Angle’s top rivals and one of the few guys fans consistantly remember having great matches with each time they stepped into the ring together.

IHeart2000s
Guest
IHeart2000s

Except that he wasn’t. Austin, Rock, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Shane McMahon. Those guys all come into mind wayyyy before Benoit does

Triple H? You’re obviously a troll who never actually watched any wrestling back then. Triple H and Angle never had ONE great match. Decent ones surely but nothing classic.

And Benoit is easily Angle’s greatest opponent and Kurt himself would say as much.

Except all those guys only had that one big match with Angle that was great. The Angle/Benoit rivalry produced several classics between 2001-2003.

This DVD only trend needs to stop. I find it hard to believe that BR sells are that dismal and the quality is so much better on BR. I know I am preaching to the choir here because most of us on here would rather have BR release, but man, it is getting frustrating!

Kurt Angle….not complaining but wish this was a documentary set. As for what matches I want to see included: Edge & Rey Mysterio vs Benoit & Angle – SD Tag Team Title Finals from No Mercy 2002. Probably the best wrestling match of that ppv. But will probably not be included I’m thinking. Vs Benoit – RR2003. For obvious reasons, may/will probably not be included but hope I’m wrong bc it was a great one. Vs John Cena – No Mercy 2003. I see no reason not to have this match here. It was a good one. Vs HBK –… Read more »

I’m very disappointed that this will not be a documentary set. For me the docs are just as much as a selling point as the matches. I know a lot of people out there could care less about the docs on these sets but I’m not one of them.i like learning about the wrestlers and enjoy their stories. And I’m sure that with a title like the essential collection that this set will be loaded with repeats. I know a lot of you that go on this site hate it when people complain about repeats but if any of you… Read more »

WWE is doing a formula the recent years, where they first put out a Ultimate / Best of / Essential collection of matches..and then a year or two later the documentary is being realized.

Did it with The Ultimate Warrior.. Sting.. most likely gonna do it with Kurt too next year or in 2019. Simple business, making money. Problaly reason also why they make the releases shorter and shorter in runtime..to get us to buy more releases..naaaah, that’s just me being in my Jericho/R-Truth conspiracy mode. -lol-

I’d rather see the HBK vs Angle iron man match on the set as well as their WrestleMania encounter.

Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Life

the Iron man match from RAW Homecoming would be awesome to have with the segments from the comercial cuts included.. hell, let’s have the complete triology with HBK on there, so have the Vengeance ’05 on there too..after all it is the essential collection.. 😉

Oh wow that was fast. It’s baffling though that theres no bluray.

Cuthbert
Guest

It’s not baffling at all. Since it’s almost all 10+ year-old matches. They would not benefit from being on Blu Ray. Why would they waste money on putting them on it? And for those that say even just older material is improved by Blu Ray, this is false. Older material looks better when you take the time to remaster it. That will never happen to a wrestling collection. Remastering wrestling would not be worth the time or money.

Since I don’t watch wrestling ne more, I would hav preferred a documentary Angle Bku-Ray but it’s too bad that we wouldn’t get his RR2003 match against Benoit

It’s too bad it won’t show his stuff with Benoit because they had some damn good matches together and we’re the first Smackdown tag team champions. But I’m hoping wwe does this set right and add in more valuable, exciting matches, promos and memorable moments.

1 match that will be included:

Kurt Angle vs Shawn Stasiak from Survivor Series 1999

Technically, this will be Kirk Angel’s second WWE DVD release, since he shared some disc space with Jericho on Silvervision’s Tagged Classic edition of his home video release “It’s True It’s True”.. 😉
