This time last month the news broke that a WWE: Top Giants in Wrestling History DVD was on the way, with an expected October release time.
However, it did not show in the recently finalized October titles, while further details such as a synopsis have not yet come through. It appears that the release of the Wrestling Giants DVD/Blu-ray may have been pushed back slightly to later this year or early next year.
There’s now been another sighting of the new WWE logo on official cover artwork. This time it appears on the UK and Europe’s version of the Money in the Bank 2014 DVD/Blu-ray.
As you’ve seen, the US version of the same title does not have the new logo since it will be released later this month, before the new logo reportedly goes into effect.
Shown below is the cover artwork for the UK exclusive Money in the Bank 2014 Blu-ray edition, releasing September 15th through WWEDVD.co.uk.
Speaking of DVD covers, preliminary art for the Bret Hart Signature Edition of “Timeline: The History of WWE – 1992” has been revealed, as shown below.

the Wrestling Giants dvd will suffer. Its gonna be a hit and miss.
The new logo on that cover looks awesome actually.
I’m not sure why but since last years TLC I haven’t been interested in any of the releases except ultimate warriors, best of wcw ppv and recently money in the bank 2014…. Everything else has just seemed like it has been thrown together at the last minute and expectations are low for the omg vol 2 and sting sets. Really hoping for a best of nitro vol 3 and ecw unreleased vol 3!!!
I wonder if the Wrestling Giants DVD will be replaced by a Bruno Sammartino DVD, considering it’s his birthday in October?
These have to be some of the most incoherent comments I’ve read on a thread in a long time.
well..when you put all together, everything in life is connected and coherent in the end.. and the meaning with Life, The Universe and Everything:
the number “42”. 🙂
96% of those incoherent comments were made by you.
maybe, companies like WWE should stop teasing (read: screwing) their customers by imply a product on a certain time period…and then suddenly out of the blue, with no explanation, push it into unknown’es!
I know.. I know.. excuses like the classic: “it is too expensive…we suddenly find out, even if this is not the first DVD/Bluray we produce”: RAW 20 box set, UK Bluray, if you remember..
is appearently allright for a big business company to do business like that.. oh well.. after the Network, WWE may be on the opinion, that the fans may be tired of the on/off announcements of products, so everyone will subscribe to the “secure” Network…and therefor pay for the product over and over and again and again…
Well.. I don’t see other strategies than that, but I am definitely open for other reasons, why another announced great set, so it would seem, is pushed, and may even be deleted in the end, without reason or cause.
For starters, they don’t owe anybody an explanation for pushing back one of their future DVD releases, especially when it didn’t have a solid release date to begin with. It doesn’t matter what their reason is, because it’s been pushed back. Period.
DVDs, music albums, etc. have seen release dates pushed back–EVEN CANCELLED!–countless times over the years. This is something that every production company has done many times over the past few decades.
Get a grip, man! Lol! It’s not the end of the world because World Wrestling Entertainment is making you wait a couple more months to buy one of their DVDs. I’m quite certain you’ll survive the wait.
I will survive, sure.. I just think that it is not particulare ethical toward your customers, when you repeatedly as a company repeatedly teases and that holds back or even cancels…and many times even without giving a reason..
As far as I am concerned, I and others DVD/Bluray buyers are part of why WWE still exists..sure, a little part..but, little can also grow..so did Vince start as little.. look at it as if I make it bigger as it is, if you like..that’s your right.. I just think that some ethic towards customers are welcome, even from a big company like WWE.. it s not much we see today, ethic. WWE wants to be a good example with all the charity work.. maybe, it should start by looking at their own ethics.
Oh well.. apart from that, I do hope they will indeed release that giant set.. would be huge, if ya get it.. 😉
I really don’t think this falls into the ethics category. That’s a conversation to have when they false advertise, make instant stars out of jacked up guys while telling everyone we’re drug-free, etc.
We really don’t know why they made the call to push it back. For all we know, the reason they made the call could be one that would make the DVD even better. I can’t fault them for that.
I’m with ya, though. When I first saw that this was an idea they were considering, I thought it would be a really fun set to watch. Whenever it finds its way onto shelves, I’ll be picking it up too!
right.. we hope the WWE make the right descision then, right!? 🙂
Chill out, it was never announced as being slated for October just rumoured! The UK RAW 20 box set was never announced either, rumours are just that, rumours.
Might be a matter of how you understand the word: announcen, and when what is a rumor or an acutal announcement, but, when an official WWE related site, like Australian department of WWE, has an announcement that there will be a Bluray edition, and same site has cancelled it, then I don’t know.. but, I agree, the UK version never announced a Bluray box..
My point is not that you, as a company, are allowed to make mistakes.. you are.. definitely, like everyone.. we do that..
my point is, how you treat your customers.. in the case of a Bluray-version of RAW 20, the excuse is, that it is too expensive.. excuse me, but like I stated in my first post, it is not the first time WWE produces DVD/Bluray, so I find that very odd to have that as an excuse…
again.. the future of the Bluray/DVD in my opinion, is insecure, since Network, Netflix and sites like that is avaliable.. You gotta make a choice as a customer, wheather you want to pay a one time payment for a product, and watch how many times you want.. or you pay for the product over and over and over again and again, but get more access..
announcen: announced.. sorry.. 🙂
The new WWE Logo sucks. Not digging it at all. I have stopped watching Programming until they change it back
Though I do not put that much in it regarding the logo, I do have to agree that it looks like something that could be on a cover of a children-adventure book or on a huge gate into a castle in a Harry Potter movie or that stuff.. which actually fits fine to about 97 % of the days product.
You are aware that WWE was around before the actual Attitude Era, right? Most fans who complain continuously about today’s PG rating, never watched WWE in the 80’s or 70’s because they weren’t born yet. Not your fault for that, but maybe you should subscribe to WWE Network and do a little research into history. People like yourself act like this is new territory to WWE, and pro wrestling in general. It’s not.
Vincenzzzzzo is right.
Even though tv ratings weren’t really a thing in the 70s and 80s, the product generally, especially in the 80s with Hulkamania was in the TV-G rating due to WWE’s partnership with MTV. WWE for instance was always geared as “family friendly” entertainment til the mid-90s.
For example blading and blood was a big NO NO and wrestlers used to get fined for it, except if its accidental, until about 1997. In the AE blood was basically a weekly thing and really diminished the shock value. Now with all the health awareness with bleeding all over each other its a big risk and a lot of guys today, such as Paul Heyman and Joey Styles said they would never allow blood and chairshots to the head on wrestling programs if they were in charge.
Today’s product is much much better, especially ring work than in the 90s, especially the AE which wasn’t even known for ring work and rather crash tv, Russo swerve style booking.
If Austin’s career was longer I’m sure fans would have been sick of him on top, which basically how he was in 98 and 99. It was practically “The Austin show” featuring Vince McMahon other superstars. Search some old WWF forums from 98-2001 and see the amount of hate internet fans had for Austin and Rock.
I agree David. And if I’m not mistaken, I’m pretty sure WWE had a TV-14 rating for like, only 2 years total. Most of the Attitude Era was rated PG until 1999/2000.
I can honestly say that I have never quit watching a product because I didn’t like their logo.
