This time it’s Best Buy getting in on the action. WWE announced the sale earlier today in the above tweet, although the stated pricing was erroneous.
First up, there are selected WWE DVDs titles offered at $4.99 each and these include Greatest Stars of the ’80s, Spectacular Legacy of the AWA, Shawn Michaels: Heartbreak & Triumph, Undertaker 15-0, History of the Intercontinental Championship, Best of the King of the Ring, Randy Orton: Evolution of a Predator, and The Rise & Fall of ECW.
At $9.99 each are the 4 WWE Blu-ray double packs that were originally listed for pre-order on Walmart’s site. The Blu-ray titles in those packs are as follows:
nWo: The Revolution & WCW War Games
WrestleMania 28 & WrestleMania 29
ECW Unreleased Volumes 1 & 2
The Attitude Era & Stone Cold: The Bottom Line
Inside the packs are the complete Blu-ray sets as originally released (except for outer slipcovers), with the full number of discs for each set intact. The two Blu-ray cases are individually sealed, then sealed together to make these new packs for Best Buy.
As mentioned, these Blu-ray double packs were originally up for pre-order on Walmart’s website for $9.96 each. They have since been removed, however the majority of orders placed for them through Walmart look to have been fulfilled regardless. The products arriving with customers are noted to have the “Best Buy Exclusive” sticker on them, as pictured below.
I checked two Best Buys and neither one had the display. I ended up getting Battleground for $7.49.
Best Buy also has Signature Sounds for $8.24. I picked it up there last weekend.
I had purchased Randy Ortons dvd set back after boxing day in canada
for 10 bucks which was a pretty good dvd when I watched it.
Not the greatest sale
I want to pick up that Greatest Stars Of The 80s, the artwork has been modified, meaning that this version may one day be worth a lot of money.
I went to the Best Buy in my area that’s running this WWE promotion and it looks like they had everything. I noticed the Greatest Stars of the 80s was a one disc DVD that had like 5 profiles and only 6 matches. The original DVD set had 3 discs, about 15 proflies and like 16 matches.
There is also a 1 disc version of the True story of Wrestlemania. It is just the doc with no extras. It is also priced at $5 like the other one disc re-releases.
I actually did not have the SCSA blu-ray or ECW volume 1 blu ray… so, I bought them anyways with this sale and now have doubles of the Attitude Era and ECW 2. BUT, $10 for 1 blu-ray is a steal and they are now offering 2 for $10… come on! What a deal!
I already did an in-store pick-up for the ECW 2-pack. Gonna pick it up tomorrow. Has anyone seen the War Games or NWO blu-ray? I have the Network so I can watch the NWO doc whenever I want and watch all of the best war games matches so is there anything I’m missing by not getting the blu-rays?
I haven’t seen the NWO set, but the War Games set is basically just all of the War Games matches with a few extra matches on it that are War Games like. If those matches are already available on the Network, you’re not missing anything.
From my view, just because you watch the network doesn’t mean you own the blu-ray and that’s the difference. I really suggest picking up some of these double packs while they last. They are an incredible deal for what you are getting. I enjoyed NWO more than War Games, but thought some of the matches were odd choices.
Yeah I know what you mean SRB. I thought about it and hear is what I think I’m missing.
War Games: Dusty’s commentary and a few non-PPV matches. It looks like 90% of this blu-ray is available on the WWE Network and that’s good because I heard War Games has a few Duds. I’d rather just watch the classic War Games matches.
NWO: A lot of the Nitro segments and matches won’t be on the WWE Network. I know the NWO has a legends roundtable that is currently not on the Network last time I checked, but that might get added later. The documentary is available on the Network and even if it wasn’t, I have already seen it. The NWO blu-ray looks good, but I’m sure I could get just as much enjoyment looking up random NWO videos on YouTube.
I did get the ECW 2-Pack today and I can’t wait to watch that. A lot of stuff that is not on the Network.
Anybody getting the Randy Orton dvd, its a SINGLE DISC ONLY. So its pretty much just the documentary and no extras or matches.
I placed my pre-order on Walmart.com back in January and they fulfilled the order without question and they discs were shipped out this past Saturday.
It sucks that I have ECW unleased 1 but not 2
I have nWo blu ray but not war games
I have attitude but no Austin,smh
WOAH THOSE ARE STEALS definitely going to get the ecw pack and the wrestlemania pack, and now that I think about it I’ll probably get the wcw one too lol
Too bad I got all those blurays already
