Signature Sounds: The Music of the WWE releases on March 18th (pre-order). As you’ve heard, early information on it revealed an approximate runtime of 2 hours. However, according to the BBFC the runtime of the DVD will be 1 hour and 12 minutes.
The DVD being classified by the BBFC is also significant because it indicates a planned UK release, all but confirming that WWEDVD.co.uk will soon be selling it.
An extra on the DVD looks to be the Shawn Michaels “Tell Me A Lie” tribute video. The only other details currently known are that up to 25 tracks will be profiled in the feature, in addition to new interviews with composer Jim Johnston.
The winner of our recent “Music of WWE” themed giveaway was Chris Frum.
In 2 weeks KayfabeCommentaries.com will release another “Wrestling’s Most…” countdown which, in conjunction with WrestleCrap, looks at the worst gimmicks in wrestling history.
A synopsis for the DVD has been revealed which reads as follows:
On Feb 25 we will close out the season 2 cast with “Wrestling’s Most … Crappy Gimmick” brought to you by KC and our friends at Wrestlecrap! We gave you Wrestlecrap’s carefully selected list of 20 of the worst gimmicks ever to see the light of day, and you voted in droves.
We had the stars count down the top 5 and now you’ll get to see what happens when Nash, Russo, Finlay, New Jack, Meanie, and the rest of the season 2 gang reveal “Wrestling’s Most … Crappy Gimmick!”
Tommy Dreamer has revealed that he was interviewed for WWE’s new Paul Heyman documentary, which is slated for a DVD and Blu-ray release in August.
Recently Joey Styles, Jim Ross and Bill Apter confirmed their involvement also.
There are hints of WWE possibly producing a new Batista DVD this year. Dave Bautista posted up photos on his official Facebook page (like the one shown below), with the hashtag “#WWEHomeVideo”. This would be the second Batista DVD put out by the company to date, following “I Walk Alone” in 2009. We’ll confirm the release when details are known.
WWE included “Batista – Best Matches” as a new DVD idea on a survey last September.

Batista left in 2010… what else can they possibly put in to a new Batista dvd they didn’t put in to the 2009 one?
Why Kane vs Bryan ant wm30. Fans are gonna be mad when they find out.lol
wh*oring pro wrestling.. sounds something that could have cum from the attitude era.. if ya know what I mean.. 😉
I’m glad to see Bill Apter being more involved with WWE recently, especially writing columns on the WWE website. If anyone has a chance to check out the article, I highly reccomend it. Paul Heyman’s DVD set should be very informative to say the least. Looking forward to it.
I starting to think Tommy Dreamer is the wh*re of pro wrestling. He pops up everywhere. TNA one week, WWE the next, Independent show the next. Lol.
So I guess Vince thinks we all say BOOTISTA at events then…
Ahhh goddd damnn ittt do we really need an other set on batista
at least Brock Lesnar can wrestle and perform..and his re-release was loaded with great matches and OMG moments…(Hardy’s smashing chair shots on Brock’s head..and the Beast keep being on his feet is soooo amazing)
Batista had some great matches, especially Hell in a Cell against The Game and The Undertaker.. but he will never remain more than a mediocore character in my book.
“I Walk Alone” was more than enough of Batista. He does not deserve another DVD set due to his inability to actually wrestle. Plus, his career really was covered in the set. You had a documentary and plenty of matches showcasing his in-ring worth. If he is in many high profile matches, then release something on him at the end of the year. But, make it more about it his current run. Don’t start over with OVW and Evolution.
Blue Meanie talking about the worst gimmicks is pretty laughable.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the Batista DVD is just a re-release of “I Walk Alone” with extra footage and new matches – similar to Brock Lesnar Collector’s Edition.
I like your idea there that was well put in. Hes had a few after 2008 but I wouldnt
include him vs. randy orton from extreme rules in a steel cage match now that was
awful and I saw that on youtube.
True, and it was also not released on Blu Ray so it would p[probably be easy to up the old interview footage to full HD….
yea i see that with just some new stuff his heel turn leaving hollywood blah then his return in 2014 like u said but really was there anything match wise they left off maybe one of matches from 2010 vs cena or another edge and taker match vs punk from gab 08 was not to bad but thats it really
“…WWE included “Batista – Best Matches” as a new DVD idea on a survey last September.” – well, was’nt his best matches already on “I walk alone”? Unless, yet another compilation release with repeats from another releases!?
I know.. his late 2009, early 2010 time with WWE isn’t covered on “I walk alone”…and the Backlash 2005 match against HHH was missed..but still.. not that great. Think, that will be a pass, but, I been surprised before, so let’s see. 🙂
