This is my first blog here at WWEDVDNews.com. I’m very excited about writing it, so I hope you all enjoy it. Thanks for giving me the opportunity as a trial blogger here.
Well this blog is basically about the Good, the Bad and the Ugly of WWE DVDs. You could say by ‘ugly’ I mean ones that should never have even been thought up to begin with. If you agree or disagree with some of my picks then please feel free to comment below the article.
Thankfully there have been lots more good WWE DVDs than bad ones and hopefully that’s the way it will stay. These are usually documentaries style presentations and 3 disc sets which usually fail to dissapoint. Some examples? Heartbreak and triumph, The Greatest stars of the 90’s, My Journey, Raw 15th anniversary etc are all good for one reason – people actually want to see them, and their content excites and captivates the viewer.
A DVD set like My Journey is brilliant because HBK has had hundreds of awesome matches over the years and you want to see the collection on there and hear what he has to say along the way. However, when WWE released the John Morrison Rock Star DVD no one gave a damn because he had been in the company only a few years and had near zero main-event worthy matches.
I feel the WWE should listen to their fans more on what they actually want to see profiled on WWE DVDs to improve the market. To be honest I am actually worried about the WWE releasing a Big Show 3 DVD set. He has not had that many great matches throughout his career and the PG audience that WWE is trying to reach out to these days may not be all that interested it. Sure the long time wrestling fans who actually know the business might be but that’s where it endsl.
Documentaries on the other hand are different. They are great for educating people on the wrestling buisness and give you a different perspective. Two of the best I have watched were The Monday Night War and Hard Knocks – The Chris Benoit Story plainly because the wrestlers and those involved were free to speak and give their own opinions rather than reading from scripts like is evident on some DVDs.
They don’t make documentaries like they did a few years ago, with a few exceptions. It sometimes seems like the WWE don’t want people knowing what goes on backstage and try to mask their life outside of the company!
I would say all in all the WWE DVD franchise is average at the moment, but in my view as a younger fan the WWE is at risk of losing the fans interest with such rumored releases as a Big Show set or anything as disastrous as the recent John Morrison DVD. What do you guys think?
