Brock Lesnar WWE DVD Release Date & More Details – 2003 Re-Release?

July 18, 2012 by Daniel Bee

[Information shared via Australia.]

According to the official synopsis of the Brock Lesnar WWE DVD for this year, it will in part be a re-release of the original production Here Comes The Pain, and by the looks of it will have limited involvement from Lesnar himself.

The three-disc DVD release, two-disc on Blu-ray, will be released to the United States on October 30th, 2012. The synopsis (shown below) reveals it will include the documentary portion from the previously released Brock Lesnar DVD from 2003. In addition to that there is planned to be approximately 30 minutes of new interview footage with Brock, with the rest of the set comprised of archive matches from his WWE career up to 2012.

The night after WrestleMania XXVIII, Brock Lesnar made a shocking return to the ring and leveled John Cena with an F-5, sending a message that after 8 years, the pain is back. In 2002 & 2003, “The Next Big Thing” brought it to the biggest & baddest competition in WWE, becoming the youngest WWE Champion of all time, and a household name overnight. His awe-inspiring physique, amateur championship pedigree and affinity for punishing opponents made him an unstoppable force in the ring.

Now, after years of dominating the MMA scene, Brock is back and looking to steamroll the biggest Superstars of today. This DVD set includes the original 2003 documentary ‘Here Comes The Pain’ plus 30 minutes of new interview footage, and 6 hours of matches not included in the original DVD. Featuring classic matches against Hulk Hogan, Undertaker, Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio & more, plus Brock’s controversial comments upon his return to sports entertainment!

    But the Here Comes the Pain DVD doesnt even cover him headlining Mania ?

    • Brad Attitude says:

      it covers his career from the day he made his debut in 2002 all the way thru to Judgement Day 2003.

  2. Bad Booking says:

    I don’t own the original, so this is fine by me!

  3. Anonymous says:

    I’m betting it will simply be something like ‘Brock Lesnar: Here Comes The Pain – Legitimate Edition’ with an added coupla discs. Basically the same kind of enhancement as when Foley’s Greatest Hits an Misses was re-released.

  4. Anonymous says:

    Hope To Finally See His Match vs Kurt Angle From Summerslam On Here.

  5. I hope they put Brock’s match with Hardcore Holly from Smackdown where he broke Holly’s neck. Has there been a more worthless wrestler than Hardcore Holly? Other than Triple H. #Heelcomment

    • Manny says:

      Holly was a fair talent. But he stayed on the roster so long because he was Mcmahon’s hitman. Check out his shoot interviews, he has some good stories.

    • Anonymous says:

      Why would they do that? That wouldn’t make Brock look badass, it would just highlight how green, incompetent and dangerous he was at the time.

      • Oono says:

        Holly sandbagged him, Brock didn’t let him get away with it.

        He didn’t mean to break his neck (I hope) but he didn’t drop him by accident.

  6. Brad Attitude says:

    I’m assuming the new interview footage could have him talking about his return to WWE, wrestling in Japan in 2005 and 2006 and maybe his UFC Career … but I get the feeling they won’t go into the lawsuit WWE filed against him and having both parties go back and forth with each other.

  7. nightmare says:

    I just think that these release is not need I mean there are so many better release that could come out like these

    The Rock vs Mankind

    Stone Cold Vs Vince

    WCW Thunder

    WCW The Best of all there PPV

    just to name a few

  8. Steve says:

    So we all complain about duplicate matches but now apparently we need to complain about a duplicate documentary. This is very lazy of WWE but I’ll blame Brock because I guarantee it’s due to his laziness.

  9. X-23 says:

    I think WWE should wait until Brock has wrestled a few more matches, so they can put Brock/Cena, Brock/HHH, etc

  10. Anonymous says:

    if they include his match vs ric flair and his matches vs john cena at backlash and extreme rules then it’s a easy pick up for me.

  11. Anonymous says:

    Now that I think about it, hope they include Brock vs. Rock vs. HHH from that Global Warning DVD.

  12. Dakota says:

    I’ll only buy this if I can find a used copy at F.Y.E. for under $10

  13. nightmare says:

    Spelling and writing was never a strong point for me ok I try to do my best .

  14. Thomas Goodearl says:

    I already have Here Comes The Pain, I will pass on this one at full price, I may get on on a Wild Wednesday Deal with Silvervision, but won’t pay full price for it!

  15. NickP says:

    I have to quote Miz on this one.. Really? Really?

  16. Reading Nightmare’s comments are a nightmare.

  17. nightmare says:

    Off the topic who he did order or plans to pick up the new Undertaker one next week and what will y buy dvd or blu ray

  18. nightmare says:

    Well I just pass It just my opinion and I really don’t think this one will sell well at all .

  19. Anonymous says:

    Sounds a little strange, but I’ll probably pick it up.

  20. jgreeds says:

    Isn’t the Rock-Cena dvd kinda the same deal? An already released documentary with a little added footage?

    • LP1 says:

      Actually it’s not really the same. The Rock-Cena documentary was never released on DVD before, while the Brock one has. If anything this is more similar to “The Rock: Just Bring It” and “Mick Foley: Greatest Hits & Misses” which were both rereleased a couple of years after the original releases, but with added matches and extras.

  21. Scott says:

    Absoutely! Loved the first DVD and was bummed it only had half his WWE career. This should be a good pick up.

  22. nightmare says:

    Yea this is a stupid and pointless release I mean there are so many other release they could do and there do him why .If they think that Brock draws rating there wrong nobody care about this guy period and why doesn’t Vince see that is beyond me .PASS PASS PASS I would not even take this even if someone gave me this for free I don’t like him never will he’s a jerk .

  23. Supersonic says:

    I’d have waited until after WM29 to include his entire current run.

    The Benoit match ain’t being included, even though it’s the only match of his I want that’s not yet remastered and commercially released.

  24. indyfan says:

    Wow this is extremely lazy!

  25. Anonymous says:

    The DVD reflects the 2012 Brock run perfectly: half-arsed.

  26. Anonymous says:

    Welp, here comes the re-release! I already own the ’03 DVD, I bought it a few years ago at a fye, but I’ll def still pick this one up b/c he is the next big thing nd a freak of nature lol

  27. Bob says:

    Didn’t he only have one match with hogan and that match was on the Here Comes the pain dvd. So that would have to be a repeat from the original dvd

    • SRB says:

      I thought the same thing Bob

      • Jeffrey says:

        makes no sense to me lol so will it or will it not have the same matches from here comes the pain. The synopsis is really contradicting.

        • Jose Patron says:

          What’s so hard? It says hours of matches that are not on the first one. So maybe it has some new and some repeat too. But you know for sure theer are lots of new ones

          • SRB says:

            Care to list some? Lesnar’s career in WWE wasnt really that long and since his return has had 1 match… Since the DVD will be out in a few months i doubt his upcoming SS match with HHH will be there. Lesnar debuted on WWF on March 18, 2002, with his last match at WM20 in 2004. He was barely in WWE for 2 years.

  28. Harry Faversham says:

    That doc is so old. It has people like Tommy Dreamer on it. If they try to pass that off as new it won’t work too well. I’d like to see a new set with Here Comes The Pain as a bonus disc maybe.

  29. Jesus Lopez says:

    The first releasewas very limited but good none the less. I am a Lesnar fan and with more material available with his current WWE run I am ready for this.

  30. Steve says:

    Forget this, I’m waiting for nWo and Attitude Era can’t wait for both. Hopefully the content for both is next month or so. I will get the HBK DVD because I’m a huge fan of his, but after that it’s nWo and Attitude Era all the way. I preorder both soon.

  31. SRB says:

    Hearing that Lesnar will have limited involvment doesn’t surprise me at all. After seeing Punk’s content and hearing he would have a lot of control over it makes me realize that WWE is the first and final say about these DVDs. They control it all in regards to content, running time and covers, which is no surprise since they distribute and pay for its marketing. Like most I will wait for the content, but hopefully it will have a lot of Smackdown and of course current matches.

    • SRB says:

      And those who complain about repeats (including myself sometimes) this would be your time to sound off since the entire 2003 release will already be on this set. Lazy move WWE

      • Daniel Bee says:

        Actually SRB, according to that synopsis only the documentary from the original release will be put on to this new one, and no match repeats.

        Doesn’t sound too bad but those like me hoping for a newly produced doc (some were even dreaming about an interview with Dana White) it’s disappointing it’s the old doc thrown on and a few new interviews.

        • SRB says:

          I hear ya buddy. To my knowledge he only faced Hogan once, right? And wasn’t that already on the original release? So since it mentions him again I think we might get some recycled footage

          • Dave says:

            Correct, Hogan and Lesnar faced one time. I read they were suppose to have a rematch at Survivor Series 2002, but Hogan had some contract issues.

            The match is also on Summerslam 2002 DVD as an extra.

        • Jose Patron says:

          It doesn’t say anything about “no repeat matches”. It just says “hours of matches not on the original”. If there are matches on disc 2 and disc 3, and maybe some on disc 1, then there can still be a repeat or two. So if the Hogan match is there, who cares, there will be like 6 hours more new stuff anyway

    • AJ says:

      I guess you blame WWE, but how? Do you think Brock even wants to do a DVD? He doesn’t want do more than a few RAW’s, why would he fly to CT during the week to do a full doc? And CM Punk was the one to choose his content. But continue to blame WWE

  32. Jeff says:

    It’s funny how lazy wwe is becoming with these DVD releases. Look at the recent Austin , rock, edge etc sets. They don’t make use of the space they have. At this point they
    Might has just make all sets two disc sets.

  33. UKWWEFAN says:

    Sounds good, dont mind the documentary from 03 being on his new set, not everyone has the dvd so wwe thought it will include that in his new set so people can watch that doc from 03, having extra 30 mins interview is sweet so the doc should last somewhere between
    1hour 30 mins/1 hour 40 mins, and 6 hours of matches and and exclusive blu-ray extras and matches looking like a nice set,
    I bet the blu-ray extra match is going to be the Extreme Rules match against John Cena from Extreme rules 2012,

    Here is the matches i want WWE to Include:

    Brock Lesnar & Shelton benjamin Winning the OVW Tag Titles from 2001

    Brock Lesnar vs Jeff Hardy – Backlash 2002,
    Brock Lesnar and Shawn Stasiak vs Hardy Boyz – Insurrextion 2002,
    Brock Lesnar vs Rob Van Dam – Vengeance 2002,
    Brock Lesnar vs Hulk Hogan – Smackdown 2002,
    Brock Lesnar vs Randy Orton – Smackdown 2002
    Brock Lesnar vs Undertaker – Unforgiven 2002,
    Brock Lesnar & Paul Heyman vs Edge WWE Championship – Rebellion 2002
    Brock Lesnar Royal Rumble 2003 Victory,
    Brock Lesnar vs John Cena WWE Championship – Backlash 2003,
    Brock Lesnar vs Big Show Stretcher Match – Judgement day 2003,
    Brock Lesnar vs Big Show vs Kurt Angle – Vengeance 2003,
    Brock Lesnar vs Kurt Angle – Summerslam 2003,
    Brock Lesnar vs Vince McMahon Steel Cage Match – Smackdwon 2003,

    Brock Lesnar vs Triple H – Summerslam 2012, (If that Happens).

    Please Comment and add more matches that you want that i have missed out thanks 🙂

    • C says:

      I really hope they stay away from putting together another compilation set full of material previously released on DVD. It’s bad enough that the documentary is being re-released, so the matches will make or break this set. Lesnar was arguably his most impactful in 2002, so I hope we see matches from that era such as:
      his Smackdown TV show matches against Orton, Cena and Hogan
      -May 2002 RAW vs. Hardys
      -June 2002 RAW vs. Booker T
      -July 2002 RAW vs. Ric Flair
      -July 2002 RAW tag match with Undertaker vs. Ric Flair/RVD
      -August 2002 Smackdown vs. Mark Henry
      -September 2002 Smackdown vs. Randy Orton
      -September 2002 Smackdown vs. John Cena
      -October 2002 Smackdown vs. Rey Mysterio
      -November 2002 Smackdown vs. Eddie Guerrero

      None of these matches have been released and all are against top-level talent. Come on WWE, make this happen!

    • Anonymous says:

      Not a bad listing, but you can scratch that match off with Benoit, definitely won’t be on it, because of the Benoit ban.

    • Derick says:

      I had just recently rewatched the 2003 Backlash and Judgement Day DVDs as well as the Extreme Rules DVD from this year and I have to say pass on those matches. At least the Backlash one. Judgement Day is good for variety and Extreme Rules is good to show him in his current run but just keep that early Cena match out. It was the most boring match on the card that night.

    • Brad Attitude says:

      That’s a pretty good match listing althought i’d scratch off the one with Hardcore Holly from Royal Rumble 04′ and throw in the one with Eddie Guerrero at No Way Out 04′ instead … I don’t see the Benoit match being in there either so i’d replace it with the Iron Man Match Lesnar had with Kurt Angle on Smackdown.
