It’s well known that AJ Styles became a household name through years of hard work and dedication, and providing TNA fans with some phenomenal wrestling. Soon you can add the definitive AJ Styles Collection to your TNA Wrestling DVD home library.
Stay tuned for more info on how you can get your 4 Disc set soon!
“The Essential AJ Styles Collection” will be TNA IMPACT Wrestling’s third DVD on AJ Styles.
The new release follows the small flurry of Superstar-themed DVDs put out by TNA in 2015, including a Sting compilation last April, followed by Jeff Hardy and Hulk Hogan last July.
“The Best of Sting”, a single-disc DVD, featured a handful of Sting matches from his TNA run.
“Jeff Hardy: Humanomoly”, a 2 disc DVD, compiled over 20 of the current TNA star’s matches.
“The Best of Hulk Hogan”, a single-disc DVD that ended up quickly removed from sale amid the Hogan racism scandal, presented several moments and matches from the Hulkster’s three year tenure with the company. The DVD has since been quietly relisted on TNA’s shop site.
A release date for the new AJ Styles DVD has not yet been confirmed.
Stayed tuned for updates as we receive them, including the content selected for the 4 disc set!
I probably would get this if there was a UK distributor, but when I play TNA’s in-house NTSC releases there’s a horribly grainy, liney effect to the picture on my player.
Really? i thought NTSC DVDs play fine on UK players since televisions and DVD/Blu-ray players can handle 60hz and NTSC format.
For us the PAL DVDs don’t play that great as it has the lag effect since PAL DVDs are 50hz and televisions here can’t handle so it converts to 60hz depending on how the region-free players handle it. I imported many Tagged Classics from UK and thats how they play on my region-free Blu-ray player.
I also import the UK exclusive WWE Blu-rays and they look and sound great due to filmed in HD.
They certainly don’t lag and play through fine and in colour, but on some players there’s still a bit of a liney distortion to them. I stress on “some” players, because therein probably lies the issue – my player isn’t exactly state of the art, but I’m quite frugle and if it’s still working I can’t get rid of it, lol.
Ironically, TNA’s PAL versions produced specifically for the UK market up until late 2012 were terrible even on UK DVD players, as they converted them from NTSC via some weird means from NTSC to the point where the frame-rate would lag and give you a headache. They play fine on a computer, but not on players. So for releases from 2010 – 2012 I make sure I get the Navarre US releases as they actually played better. It was great when Clearvision took over the UK releases in 2012 as at last their Region 2 releases played perfectly and the whole cover/menu design of them was professional as hell (on par with WWE releases), but that didn’t last long thanks to the general decline of TNA’s television product. 🙁
I should stresses the UK releases from 2006 – 2009 were fine, but something weird happened in 2010 when TNA switched to HD whereby the UK DVDs got seriously messed up.
Where can I buy this?
TNA has released the content, here are the matches:
[edit to give URL]
Its passable for me since i have a majorly of the tna ppvs so eh but its a good set.
i agree his last match vs magnus should of been on there but better to end the set with his last world title victory
i think this and jeff jarrett are only 4 disk dvds tna has ever done on a single superstar. wwe wise? 4 disk austin set from 2011.
i sorta wish they would of done this back in 2013 before aj left but hey its new dvds, tna has been lacking a bit of the bios last few years.
my only gripe is i wish tna had a store deal like they did few years when tna dvds you could get in best buys or fyes NOW hell your rare to find them at a fye.
i think last tna dvd sold in stores was jeff hardy vol 2 or bound for glory 2011, i hope one day they dvd a distribution deal again
The Hogan Anthology set was technically also four discs, with two different bonus 4th discs.
Very happy to hear the TNA Hogan set is again available. He didn’t wrestle much there, but for the completist, it is a decent companion to the WWE Hogan sets.
WHen i comes to long careers like Dudleyz, Scott Hall, HBK, HHH, Kane, Taker, Sting, etc, it’d be nice if they released a set like this, one set having all these discs dedicated to that set, instead of releasing….like how many John Cena, HHH, HBK DVD’s has there been now LOL?
Finally TNA does something like this. Hopefully more 3-5 disc compilations going forward.
I am looking forward to this set, as AJ Styles is one of my all-time favourites. However, why did TNA not do this when he was in the company?
I know AJ Styles has had two previous releases (which were great) but why not release even more? TNA’s business model is very bizarre. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to seeing what this set has to offer 🙂
I hope this set includes the first 2 AJ released, I can get rid of both and save shelf space. The previous two DVDs are phenomenal so the matches should be included in a career retrospective sets
I ordered Volume 1 from Amazon about a year ago for I believe about $5. Now a used Best of Aj Styles Volume 1 is starting at $38.99. Even if both releases are included, that would be about 7 or so hours of the new release. It could work but then you’ll get the “too many repeats, not buying” nay-sayers.
I’m sure a Samoa Joe set will follow once he debuts with the main roster
Probably. Maybe Finn Balor and Bayley too. But WWE’s never done a 10 disc set so the chances of anyone getting such a set released by WWE, while possible, isn’t really likely. Especially now that they have the Network, they probably feel if someone wants to see something that isn’t on the set, go watch it on The Network.
i am betting its gonna be a mix of vol 1 2 maybe or just matches never released on other dvds. they said in video see aj in singles his tag run ultimate x steel cage matches early days of x division.
so we might get few repeats but i am betting we get matches not been on other dvds and few tv matches
I think it’s a bit sad that TNA keep doing this – if does make them look so small time they way they have jumped on the bandwagon when both Sting and AJ have gone to WWE. They’ve stalled so much in releasing their own events to DVD or producing any new compilations on their younger talent, yet they give the impression that what’s going on in WWE is more important than anything they are doing, by pulling stunts like this.
It’s a shame as TNA is the underdog company that I’m always secretly rooting for, but i’s things like this that truly hold them back.
Sounds like a great set! I will be buying!
-lol- He wrote.. *Competition*.. -loooool-
Okay.. seriously, or something.. I hope, this is just not a combination of the 2 Phenomenal releases, added with “new” Impact and PPV matches.. If price is reasonable and the “new” stuff looks good, I might get rid off the 2 previous releases and have everything Phenomenal in one box. We’ll see..
I’m a buyer.
LOL, and STILL no blu-rays from TNA despite being in filming in HD for nearly a decade.
Its sad that promotions like PWG, Evolve, CZW, House of Hardcore, Chikara, and other smaller indy promotions offer Blu-rays but two of the biggest indy promotions ROH and TNA have yet to release any Blu-rays. First, I think TNA and ROH DVD prices are pretty steep at $20 plus $6-$25 shipping depending on your country which is nearly $30-50 for a DVD…in 2016. I would have expected they could have started with their big PPVs like Final Battle or Best in the World for ROH and Bound for Glory or Slammiversary for TNA.
I read that TNA were going to release on Blu-ray, but that was few years back with their old publisher/distributor before they went bankrupt, however they could still produce them in-house like they with their DVDs.
Even NJPW offer Blu-rays in Japan only as DVD + Blu-ray combo but are crazy expensive if purchasing in the US due currency conversion as some could cost up to $100 if importing.
You are right about that. I used to buy lots of DVDs from ROH. But then some new people took over the shop, and my DVDs were suddenly taken in customs. So it just be came too expensive to buy from them. But I don’t own a lot of their match compilations with CM Punk, Danielson and others. I’m very happy to own these. I’ve always preferred Punk and Danielsons work in ROH to their work in WWE.
The WWE Network has changed at lot for me. I don’t really want to pay what ROH wants for a PPV, since it’s so more expensive than the network.
hi what country are you in? if you in europe the wrestlingstore uk sells ring of honor dvds direct so you wouldnt need to bother with customs?
I’m in Europe, yes. I’ll check it out. Not sure I’ll start buying ROH DVDs again, though… Finding the time to watch everything I want on the network is difficult, so I don’t have the time to watch ROH DVDs any more.
