Any chance we see roadblock on DVD?
If I had to guess I’d say no. At least not in the US. Overseas is probably a 50/50 chance. ‘The Beast In The East’ came out on DVD, but ‘Live From MSG’ did not.
It would great if WWE would stack the WM32 DVD/Blu-ray and include NXT Takeover Dallas and Roadblock, along with the usual HOF and other extras.
Sadly don’t see WWE focusing too much on PPV DVD/Blu-ray releases and probably just doing it as obligations with Warner Home Video to meet their number of releases per year.
UFC for example haven’t even released their last 10 events on DVD – 185/186 combo was the last release and they just had 196 tonight on PPV. Looks like the reason is they are looking to get people to subscribe to Fight Pass and I could see WWE doing the same thing with the PPVs soon being only on the Network and they will just release match compilation and documentaries on DVD/Blu-ray.
Thank god, it’s not the other way around, with the boring ppv event quality these years.
Yea dvd extras hell even bluray extras are sliming down little by little.
I remember summerslam 99 they gave you alternate commentary with austin hhh and foley about there triple threat wwf title match, or king of the ring 01 with angle and shane.
Bluray it depends some times like bios you get extra match or two but mostly just cut segments from the main bio or like in your house you get few extra matches.
i think with more wireless options like netflix hulu the network dvds and blurays are just not on wwes list so extras get limited i think, yet overseas they get more releases then wwe does ??
I am surprised to see Eugene and that the match vs Austin isnt on here. Good choices but I hope those arent all the matches. There is more that they could show.
So far the Bischoff set looks kind of how I expected. I like some of the moments, like him being named Raw GM and the Billy and Chuck wedding. But a lot of the segments have been released on other sets. Some of the matches I have on DVD. And the matches I don’t have… Well, let’s just say there is a reason why this set isn’t called Eric Bischoff: The Five Star Match Collection. 😉
WWE should’ve just done a Bischoff vs. McMahon rivalry dvd instead of a dvd focused entirely on Bischoff.
Paul is right, a bischoff dvd sucks and today’s extras for it shows how bad it will be. Seriously, a Eugene match on dvd? UGH!!!!
Thomas did you change your screen name…
