Bret Hart: The Dungeon Collection DVD Cover Art Work

WWE Bret HartFor nearly 30 years, Bret “Hit Man” Hart travelled the globe proving he was “The Best There Is, The Best There Was, and the Best There Ever Will Be”. From his roots in his family’s own Stampede Wrestling, to the bright lights of WWE, WCW, and his watershed return to the ring in 2010, no Superstar could match his unmistakable presence in the ring. Known as the “Excellence of Execution”, he is widely regarded as the greatest technical wrestler of all time, evidenced by multiple reigns with the Tag Team, Intercontinental, WWE and World Heavyweight Championships.

Now in this collection, compiled by the Hit Man himself, fans can experience Bret Hart’s best matches never-before-released on DVD. Bret takes the viewer behind each match in a brand new, revealing interview detailing the inside stories surrounding these rare matches. Over 8 hours of in-ring action is presented, including classics from the Stampede Wrestling vault as well as vintage WWE bouts against the top stars of the 80s and 90s.

    Excellent example. Too bad that reference will go right over the head of most people on here. Still a great reference point. I agree completely.

    • LP1 says:

      ^^^ In regards to the below post by RabidHeat.

      • RabidHeat says:

        Lol, silly me, I just thought the Attitude Era DVD cover may have educated them a little! Maybe they’re more likely to have heard of Metallica’s ‘Black’ album, but I doubt it, lol.

  2. RabidHeat says:

    Why does the cover matter? Two words: White Album.

    Great match listing; couldn’t care less what they wrap it up in.

  3. KarlKayfabian says:

    It could be a blank piece of white paper for all I care. The match listing is great and I will pick it up, regardless.

  4. Mr DVD says:

    I get the feeling that the person that designed this cover had been watching The Simpsons episode that featured Bret and thought you know what i have an idea!

  5. Mabel says:

    how does the cartoon fit the description of the dungeon collection again? the temporary artwork was more creative than this.

  6. Scott says:

    It looks like a close up of Bret’s Hasbro figure.

  7. Anonymous says:

    Glad I’m not going to be buying this. One of the ugliest covers ever!

  8. Anonymous says:

    I Think it’s a cool cover. It works, Bret Hart is a cartoonist. youtube Bret Hart Cartoons and you’ll find some of his stuff. I’m looking forward to this dvd when it drops. Can’t wait !!

  9. Anonymous says:

    I for one like the cover. It’s different, and will stand out both on store shelves & my own…and from a marketing perspective, isn’t that the point? People are going to notice this one. Can’t wait to check it out.

  10. Anonymous says:

    I don’t mind the cover, but I think it’s too cartoonish for a DVD / Blu Ray titled “The Dungeon Collection.”

  11. pmdmf says:

    It doesn’t matter what the cover art looks like. What matters is the discs inside.

    • LP1 says:

      LOL! Come on now. Seriously. Deciding whether or not to buy a DVD based on content is such an outdated concept. Everyone reading this knows that it’s all about the covers. Heck, you can throw those discs away. This is 2013 where collecting just DVD cases is what’s hot!

      Even typing that, I felt my IQ drop.

  12. insanetombstone96 says:

    Very cool cover art. I dig.

  13. SRB says:

    You guys who complain about covers have nothing better to do than complain about covers. Let’s remember something, it isn’t the covers that matter, it’s the covers! I mean, are you really buying a DVD for the cover or are you buying it for the cover art? Really? Why does it matter? Take cover. Maybe WWEDVDNews should stop showing us the covers because then it gives us a chance to complain about covers. If covers didn’t matter then why show the covers? Covers don’t matter. Cover up.

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      trust me i tryed this hole debate thing on here and bitching it dont work just ingore wat people say cause they will respond reguardless if u say something stupid or smart

  14. Lendus1985 says:

    This looks amazing, content and cover!! Great artwork and perfect match selection makes this a must buy for me!

  15. Colin.V says:

    Who cares about what the cover looks like. But I have to admit though, on the Nitro vol.1 cover, I thought that was a horrible picture of ddp. It looked like he suffered brain damage or something. I know where this picture is from, but still they could’ve found a way better picture of him. Sorry, didn’t mean to get off topic here. The cover for Bret’s dvd looks good. Can’t wait to see some good technical wrestling!

    • Person says:

      I care what the cover looks like. It’s probably never going to be the deciding factor whether or not to purchase a particular title, but I appreciate photography and graphic arts. I like it when the packaging and disc art is well thought out and visually pleasing. This cover, in ny opinion, achieves that to my satisfaction and thus only serves to enhance my anticipation and appreciation for this release.

      Also, a thumbs up for the nWo, Attitude & Nitro Vol. 2 covers… All very different from one another but equally appropriate and well executed.

  16. Dave says:

    Its funny most people bash covers that are “too simple” or have just have still shot and/or a collage and lack creativity. Now WWE do something a little different with the cover and people are hating it because its a cartoon that pleases 12 year olds. Never change, never change. Just shows people here are NEVER happy whatever WWE does.

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      dave they never are its 3 things 1 there wrestling fans so reguardless of wat matches or covers people will never be happy all ways bitch about something 2 its the internet so people again bitch about anything and everything and 3 well 2 and 1 pretty much covers it so yea see why kids sites like this need to be looked at more carefully about can say what cause people will just go on and on and never shut up about stupid little things like a f***ing dvd cover o-o

    • Leon says:

      Dave, people like yourself who support everything WWE does and not changing their product for the better to the point in not trying to be creative with dvd cover work are the reason the company never changes. So go play with your action dolls or go back into the closet.

  17. Philip says:

    Not impressed with the cover, but the content makes this one a must-buy nonetheless.

  18. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    That cover is awesome.

  19. HITCH22 says:

    Can’t wait for this. Lot’s of great matches with very different opponents. Pleased to buy the dvd of a guy who made it feel real, didn’t hold people down or sabotage anyone’s career and tried to elevate all of his competition.

  20. Charles says:

    I don’t like the cover, but it is a must buy regardless

  21. THE BAD STAR says:

    Who cares about the cover? Are you buying it to look at the cover or watch disk inside of it? Who cares if it is even blank? If the covers really cause that much of a issue for you, then you have a bigger problem than artwork.

  22. AttitudeEraFan says:

    Not feeling the cover, i like its different but its not for me.. doesnt really bother me tbh as the content on the dvd/br are gold and are all that matter..
    Looking forward to when this comes out in the UK>>

  23. Simon says:

    Makes sense. He was from the cartoon era, after all.

  24. tommy says:

    best cover ever all the marks crying if this was punks cover u all be saying how great it was so shut up

  25. Marco says:

    Wow, may be the worst cover ever!

  26. Anonymous says:

    The guys who are complaining about this cover should probably stop. Bret obviously approved it and may have even requested something like this. After all, if he didn’t like it, the crying and whining he’d be doing about it right now probably wouldn’t come to end for a good 10+ years. He does have that kind of a track record!

  27. Brad Attitude says:

    i LOL-ed for about 10 minutes when i saw the actual cover art for The Dungeon Collection.

  28. Hot Rod says:

    Oh….that’s awesome.

    Early favorite for Best Cover Art for 2013.

    • John says:

      Best cover art for 2013? Very doubtful! I think it will go to Best of WCW Nitro Volume 2! However, I can see the Bret Hart being voted for the worst cover art since the art cover sucks! I guess we will see at the end of the year!

      • Anonymous says:

        Well, the cover has to feature Bret so of course it was going to be the worst cover art of the year anyway. So far this year the best cover art is unquestionably the Nitro set.

        By the end of the year if they follow through with the Divas set, that’ll get my vote as the best of the year and I don’t even have to see what the design looks like! With Trish, Stacy, Torrie, Candice, etc likely to be on the cover, I can’t possibly see them creating anything quite so appealing to the eye. 🙂

          Are you high or something is wrong with you ?!!

          • Anonymous says:

            What?!? There’s something wrong with considering a beautiful model like Trish or Torrie more pleasing to the eyeball than some unwashed looking dude? Are you trying to say there’s something wrong with being a straight man? I’m thinking you’re either gay, gay for Bret, or a woman. How would you like it if I told you there was something wrong with that? Not that I am because I live in 2013 and as Jerry Seinfeld once said, “not that there’s anything wrong with that.” But, as much as culture has changed, I won’t have you telling me that there’s something wrong with me preferring to see Trish Stratus, Torrie Wilson, Stacy Keibler or any woman over Bret Hart. I like girls. We know what you like. Feel free to return to the closet now.

              You mean the same closet were you hade to masturebate while watching a divas DVD lol…
              Real men find Real women in Real life … You are just a straight looser ..

              • Anonymous says:

                All I said is I prefer to look at a beautiful woman than an unwashed looking dude or any guy. I didn’t say anything else. It is very telling that you clearly get more excited looking at Bret. I’d rather be a straight “looser” than what you are (it’s 2013, you don’t have to be self-conscious about it anymore), but I guess that’s because I’d just rather be straight and not anything like you.

                • Anonymous says:

                  Good for you to confess that you are a straight loooser 😉 …
                  But I’m here for “REAL” wrestling DVDs .. Not some crappy divas DVDs for pathetic lonely horney losers that can’t do it in real life ..

                  • Anonymous says:

                    So as a gay man you have a problem with a straight man appreciating a beautiful woman’s looks. Apparently now, you also have problem with a woman like Trish Stratus who’s successful in what’s typically a man’s world. This is clear by you saying you only like “Real” wrestling as opposed to Divas. They wrestle too you know. And, wrestling isn’t real. That’s why you need more to be an all-time top wrestler (like promo ability, charisma, etc) than simply in-ring ability. You can live your life any way you like, but just because you’re gay there’s no reason for you to knock straight men and women and tell us what we should like to look at.

                    • Wrestlingfan says:

                      Wow !! What a weird and twisted logic lol ..
                      So if someone is more interesting in an “al Pacino” movie than a crappy “Megan fox” movie .. He is a gay al Pacino fan loool .. Cute logic !!
                      And about wrestling isn’t real everybody know that .. Wrestling like Movies . You may watch it for sex but not everybody lol..
                      So to your little lonely life mastubating to divas DVDs is straight .. Good for you lol
                      Like I told you before and I tell every other lonely pathetic loser ..
                      Real “straight” men find real women in real life 😉

  29. gqbz says:

    Cover art is amazing! Nice to see something outside the normal stock photo stuff

  30. John says:

    That cover art is terrible! I was hoping they would have kept the temporary artwork which I thought was great!

  31. David says:

    The spine art looks great!

  32. Jesus Lopez says:

    I don’t like the cover. And before everyone slaps a sharpshooter on me for saying this, I do want to say that the match content on this release more than makes up for it. Honestly, this is the best idea wwe came up with? Perhaps it’s that they are trying to hook a younger audience in with this pre-school cover…I don’t know. Regardless, this looks to be the best wwe release of 2013, for me, anyway. Okay, I guess I’ll take that sharpshooter now…

    • Mr Z says:

      I’m not slapping anything on you, no attacks, I’m just curious. You don’t like this cover, fine, but if it were up to you what would the cover look like?

      For Bret’s first DVD they used the standard photo of him as the focus with a pink background, for the Hart Family DVD they did the logo in the center with smaller pics around it. Those are the two old stand bys when it comes to video covers. It seems to me they were trying something new. Is that so bad?

      • Jesus Lopez says:

        No, there is nothing wrong with going with something new. Those who do not run with change are destined to be left behind. My issue with the cover (and mine alone-those offended please hold your elbow drops ’til I finish) is that it does not speak history, legacy, triumph- All things Bret hart and the dungeon should represent. Look at the talent that was associated with the dungeon…and wwe is going to represent that with the Simpsons version of Bret Hart? Be creative, be artististic, be crazy but don’t be irrelevant. More importantly, don’t be lazy. Do what you do and do it well. Thanks for your taking notice of my comment. No sharpshooter? My back thanks you.

  33. Nick says:

    Very nice, should have been his book cover. Blu ray looks much better which the whole title at the top. Going to be my 1st wrestling purchase of the year.

    Since looking at the match listing i have been in bret hart mode this week, finding and watching a lot of foundation vs bulldogs matches. I also didn’t know about the islanders, very underrated team, their matches against the harts, strike force and bulldogs are very fun to watch. A 3rd bret hart dvd might be in order, a lot of unreleased matches to choose from.

  34. Lawrence says:

    A different looking cover and, in this case, different is good.
    Very good.
    I was picking this one up anyway and the cover art makes it even more worthwhile.

  35. Geolink says:

    Holy Sh*t! That cover looks siiiicckkkk!

  36. Charisma says:

    Bret just posted the link to this page on his twitter.

  37. Reality CHeck says:

    Weird! A guy with no personality gets a cartoon cover? Oh well. I’m fine with it because I only care about the content and I know there’ll be three good matches (Dynamite, Flair and Austin).

  38. Anonymous says:

    Cool and Simple.

  39. captain planet says:

    Hmmm…I don’t love it, but I can get behind that art style. We’ve already had the other Bret DVDs with covers you’d expect, so this one being more minimalist works.

  40. LP1 says:

    I really like this. I’m so tired of collages and a bunch of different things randmly thrown together to make a mess of a cover to draw in the ADD crowd. This is understated and it seperates itself from everything else out there. Good stuff.

    Of course there will be people that hate it because that’s just what they do.

  41. Marty says:

    Love it! I assume they won’t do covers like this too often, so something different like this is very nice. 🙂

  42. jgreeds says:

    This is pretty good. I’ve noticed lately (with the exception of the Attitude Era DVD) that they seem to be going a lot simpler with their covers. Look at the Raw 100 moments, nWo, the Streak, or even the best ppv matches one. Nothing too flashy with any of those. This is so much better than a lot of the tacky shit you normally see.

  43. Bill says:

    That’s awesome, very well done

  44. StaggerLeeLover says:

    pleasantly surprised

  45. SRB says:

    Love it? Love it? Really? I see little to no effort what so ever. The cover does not match the incredible match listing in the least. I really don’t think a cartoon drawing of Hart does his career justice what so ever. At the same time, I know that Bret was very into drawing at one point and maybe he did this one himself. I just don’t think this sums up Bret’s career in the least and I thought the cover might play off of the Hart dungeon in some way. Oh well, I’m sure the argument will be that this is great for the little kids who will confuse this cover for Pokemon and will buy it on accident only to get home and watch some classics with Bam Bam and the Twin Towers, whatever spreads the Hart legacy.

  46. Chris says:


    Something outside the norm! More covers like this please

  47. NickP says:

    Very nice.. The greatest of all time IMO gets a great dvd set.

  48. Dave says:

    wow! that looks awesome.
