    To anybody who got it today, how is it? I am waiting for the price to be reduced to $25, $35 is too much on Amazon

  2. David says:

    Something i noticed with NoC Blu-ray is that my audio receiver and Blu-ray player are detecting that its in DTS-HD MA which is the first ever WWE Blu-ray to have HD audio. All WWE Blu-rays were Dolby Digital 5.1 surround. Pretty cool.

    I read WWE were upgrading their HD equipment to state of the art which hopefully includes audio. I hope this change will come into effect with North American WWE Blu-rays.

    DTS-HD MA sounds AWESOME! if you have correct speakers and receiver set accordingly.

    Great job Fremantle!

  3. Beeaaaaast says:

    I might get it just for Todd Pettingweed

  4. Brian says:

    Any word if the Freemantle ones are region free?

    • Mark D says:

      The Fremantle blu-rays are locked to region B & C and their DVDs are regions 2 & 5.

      • David says:

        Yup, i imported NoC Blu-ray from Amazon UK and wanted to check if it worked possibly in my region A PS3, but didn’t.

        It worked flawlessly on my region free Blu-ray player and quality was awesome! no PAL lag effect that is present on region 2 DVDs. Some PAL Blu-rays are authored to UK 50i instead of 60i on US players, so that makes a difference on US televisions…but that is rare now.

  5. MR DVD says:

    I like Todd but i wonder why they have chosen him to host this (if it’s true) as he only covered 2 years of IYH as he left just after Ground Zero IYH in 1997.

  6. wrestlingfan says:

    They need Todd + Sunny for me to feel it is complete…

  7. Person says:

    You guys are funny. If you were actually watching WWF at the time (in real time), I think it’s pretty much the consensus that Pettingill was horrible. To use him to fill the void of Okerlund and Mooney was truly unforgiveable… That being said, time heals all wounds and bringing bank Pettingill to host the IYH set would be both fun and completely apropose… In a kitschy kind of way.

    • MR DVD says:

      You realized that Todd was ok after Stan Lane stood in for him doing WWF Mania for a couple of months. Now he was a bad host. WWF Mania was our source of watching Raw matches at the time in the UK because Sky didn’t start showing the full episodes of Raw until September 95

    • wrestlingfan says:

      For that time period which was not WWE’s greatest Todd P. fit right in, he should be the host as he was the lead intro person for that period..

  8. insanetombstone96 says:

    Thanks for the pics! Love the artwork

  9. j says:

    It be awesome as hell too see Todd working with the WWE/F again why not

  10. John says:

    Todd hosting In Your House would be great to see! I was wondering how and what he has been doing all those years!

    • Mr DVD says:

      Todd has been working on radio since leaving the WWE. I believe he has a breakfast show on WPLJ in New York.

    • LP1 says:

      Pettengil’s been at the same job for over 20 years. He hosts a radio show based out of New York City called the “Scott & Todd Show” with Todd Shannon. He actually was doing that job while working for the WWF also. Clips of their radio show can be seen on the weeknight syndicated TV show “Dish Nation”.

  11. Colin.V says:

    Agreed Daniel.

If you’re using this comments section to argue with each other or say anything else totally irrelevant to the discussion then you might find yourself banned or placed in the moderation queue. For the latter, we’ll approve your comments if they are suitable (i.e. relevant to the news, WWE DVDs or replies to others).

    We wish these measure didn’t have to be enforced, and for the most part this is a friendly community that usually requires no interference, but the sudden influx of people using this place to argue lately has brought it on. Debating a topic is absolutely fine, but when two people are blatantly going at it and their replies each consist of one curse after another it’s just a waste of space in this comments section and it’s of no value to anybody.

    Play nice. Let’s not ruin what we have. 🙂

  13. NoToWho says:

    I hope i win the cm punk signed sleeve

  14. WWEYes says:

    Cant wait for best of Raw and Smackdown 2012 blu ray:)

  15. Brad Attitude says:

    i easily see marine 3 homefront in the gas station dust bin for $5 a few years from now.

  16. Tony Schivaone says:

    TODD PETTENGILL!! I’m not gonna lie I marked out when I saw that.

  17. Mr DVD says:

    It would be great to see Todd work with WWE again. He always done a great job hosting Mania. Saturday morning’s on Sky 1 in the UK Between 1993-1995

    • David says:

      I agree, i liked Todd as the host of the countdown shows and WWF Mania in the early to mid-90s, he had enthusiasm and really sold what he was pitching, even though in most times it was pretty cheesy…still enjoyed it as a kid.

      I’m a sucker for nostalgia and will definitely be cool seeing him host the IYH DVD/Blu-ray. I saw recent pics of him and doesn’t look like he aged at all.

  18. Benoit.Lecoq says:

    Anyone outside UK did already receive his dvd/ blu-ray of night of champions? With SV i know it could take up to 7/8 working days. I was expecting less with Fremantle regarding to the fact that this time we pay for the shipping cost.

  19. Joe Israel says:

    When you say all matches are “complete” on the Raw/SD Blu-Ray, does that include footage during commercial breaks? That would be a nice bonus.
