Change to DVD & Blu-Ray Release of WWE Network ‘Monday Night War’ Series

January 29, 2015 by Daniel Bee

Monday Night War WWE vs. WCW - Vince McMahon & Ted Burner

WWE is coming out with a DVD/Blu-ray set of their WWE Network series “The Monday Night War” which, as we’ve reported, will be called “Monday Night War Vol. 1: Shots Fired”.

The plan is to release 10 episodes on the first volume and the remaining 10 episodes on the second. We’ve learned today that to accommodate the full 10 episodes and extra features on top, WWE will now be releasing “Shots Fired” as a 4-disc DVD and a 3-disc Blu-ray.

Early indications are that the first DVD/Blu-ray volume will be released to the United States in late June, to the UK/Europe in mid July, and to Australia in early September.

A 20-episode documentary series that follows the stories in and out of the ring of both Vince McMahon’s WWE and Ted Turner’s WCW, as they battle head to head in a primetime power struggle that forever changed the face of sports entertainment.

This first volume will cover the first ten episodes in this documentary, along with matches and moments from that era!

Fans in the United States can already pre-order the Blu-ray edition of “Monday Night War Vol. 1: Shots Fired” here on Amazon.com.

    I think it’s going to be a great dvd set. ECW continues to be relevant and refuses to go away.
    It’s not the last time i will say it. Paul Heyman and the ECW roster made an impact unique and undeniable. And it will be celebrated in another quality dvd set.
    Looking very forward to it.

  2. Anonymous says:

    Pass unless they add some matches or something to it. The show itself was a poorly paced (don’t do 20 episodes unless you actually have the material to do 20) that ranged from mediocre at best, to laughable at the worst (Jericho’s episode with Kofi going on about how Jericho killed WCW was ridiculous).

    • attitude.era.4life says:

      I might check back on the 9.99 low-fi network when another free period appearently will be able again in February, just to have a glance at that ridicilous sounding segment.. lol

    • Daniel Bee says:

      There will be matches/extras included, which is no doubt part of the reason it was changed from 3 discs to 4 discs.

  3. Nicolas Hébert says:

    3 disc Blu-Ray set!!! ALRIGHT!!! I preordered it on Amazon.ca!

  4. Leon Kimp says:

    How long is each episode?

    • SRB says:

      They vary, but only by a few minutes. Rounding up, they are about an hour. Most of the ones I watched, and keeping my eye on the clock, were 55 – 58 minutes. Ever since WWE began cutting the total footage on their DVD sets, I become partly obsessed with time lol.

  5. attitude.era.4life says:

    Very interesting with a 3-discs bluray covering the Monday night wars..and a vol. 1 even.. 🙂

    however..based on previous experiences (RAW 20 box set), I believe it, when I have it ordered and got it in my mailbox.

  6. King9493 says:

    Youtube again? I’m writing a letter

  7. SRB says:

    LP1 and I were debating how in the world they were going to fit about 10 hours of footage along with extras on a 2 disc Blu-ray. Very glad to hear episodes will unlikely be edited and will have extras. a 3 disc Blu-ray is the way to go. This was such an impressive series and was very deserving of the 20 hours it gave us.
