You’re about to smell what the WWE Home Video schedule is cookin’ for Q4 2021!
The remainder of the year will not only include Best of 1996: Prelude to Attitude, announced right here last week, WrestlingDVDNetwork.com has word that a classic 3-disc WWE DVD on The Rock will be making its return as a “Special Edition” with new bonus disc.
This November marks the 25th Anniversary of Rock’s WWE debut at Survivor Series 1996 and with rumors out there of a potential return to the company on the horizon, it could turn out to be an interesting month for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. His new Netflix movie with Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot — Red Notice — releases the Friday before this year’s Survivor Series PPV, reportedly the largest investment Netflix has ever made in movie to date.
On November 15th, 2021, Fremantle in the UK will be rebooting and updating “The Rock: The Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment”, the 3-disc DVD set from 2008, now with additional content packed in to make it a 4-disc DVD set.
When Silver Vision released “Most Electrifying Man” to the UK, it became one of the best-selling non-WrestleMania titles of all time. Fremantle have never re-released it because when they took over the WWE Home Video license in 2013 The Epic Journey of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson DVD had not long been released by the former licensee, so the decision was made for Fremantle to re-activate that newer title instead.
In the UK, “Most Electrifying Man” has therefore been out of circulation for close to 9 years, but it’s set to return with even more content.
Due to the original release of “Most Electrifying Man” hitting stores in 2008, this updated version has the potential to add in The Rock’s matches and moments that came later, beginning with his return to WWE to host WrestleMania 27 and subsequent feuds with the likes of John Cena and CM Punk, with his last match to date being the impromptu record-breaking 6-second match with Eric Rowan at WrestleMania 32.
For 25 years The Rock has electrified the WWE universe like no other. Now fans can relive the entirety of The Great One’s legendary WWE career with this 4-Disc Special Edition Set.
Smack-down your pre-order now with Amazon.co.uk.
While The Rock’s 4-disc set will be an exclusive offering to the UK and Germany, there’s still plenty of WWE DVDs still to look forward to in the United States.
A newly-revealed Drew McIntyre DVD (his first), to be titled “Drew McIntyre: The Best of WWE’s Scottish Warrior”, will be closing out the WWE DVD schedule in 2021 and is set to be a worldwide release, just like the Best of 1996 feature is too. McIntyre’s DVD is currently slated to be a single-disc offering that hits stores this December, likely presented as a match compilation.
WrestlingDVDNetwork.com has received the full Q4 2021 schedule for both the US and the UK, as shown below. Fans of the Blu-ray format will be pleased to hear SummerSlam will once again be produced as a Blu-ray in Europe this year.

As for pre-order opportunities, they are expected everywhere imminently but it is the UK first to move. WWEDVD.co.uk has listed SummerSlam 2021 on both DVD and Blu-ray, as well as Best of 1996. Heads up — the site has just launched a new “Summer Sale” which includes around 40 different WWE DVDs and Blu-rays with prices starting at £1.99 each.
Amazon.co.uk right now has SummerSlam on DVD and Blu-ray, The Rock’s Special Edition, Best of 1996, and Drew McIntyre.
For those interested the WWF logo is blurred. Yes it annoyed me too, not sure why Fremantle didn’t go in and edit this?
Does anyone know where you can buy Hell in a Cell 2015 on blu ray? WWEDVD UK, Amazon UK and Ebay have no availability. Why is this so hard to find?
If the WWF logo is unblurred, I will get this no doubt.
Can wrestling dvd network confirm if the rock the most electrifying man dvd will have the wwf scratch logo blurred from the attitude era footage, I know the silvervision dvd had to blur the wwf logo back then due to the court law so will fremantle be using the silvervision master that will retain the blurring or be using a completly new master that they will go back to and make sure the release is unedited in terms of the wwf scratch logo being shown, I’m fully aware the epic journey dvd and blu ray re release from fremantle had the scratch logo and matches blurred but 13 years of this dvd being re released and the scratch logo being show freely since 2012 it would be completely stupid if the scratch logo was blurred in this re release..
unfortunately I can’t see them NOT using the same master again.
(because you’re right, that would be an additional reason to get this)
MANUNITEDD Do you know if the best of saturday nights dvd or best of madison square garden dvd blurs the logos It would help me to know as I matches I need on them both
It’s a shame that nobody from wwe dvd network moderators has responded to see if the wwf logo will be blurred on this release…
Maybe no one knows yet?
It seem to me that UK is getting most of the better titles than the states.
I hope they do a 2nd Volume of WWE Unreleased Never Before Seen Matches 1986-1995.
The four disc for the rock dvd is only available for the uk only or can you get if you live in the United states man sucks if only available for one region
UK and Germany only for The Rock Special Edition
Sucks but at least we can get the rocks other dvds that was already released their lucky to get four disc hopefully they’ll release a new dvd for the rock for the US since their celebrating 25 years anniversary for the rock for survivor series
Not really sure Drew’s got the body of work in WWE to fill more than one DVD with matches worth watching, so that sounds about right. Wonder if they’ll round it out with an Evolve match or two since that’s where he majorly rehabbed himself after his WWE release.
They could easily do a 2 disc release on Drew with no problem. Between his original run from 2009-2014 with his IC Title matches, his NXT comeback from 2017-2018 where he great matches as NXT Champion, and his current run on the main roster from 2018-present, that’s about a decade’s worth of matches they can choose from. His recent main event run over the last year and 1/2 could fill 1 disc by itself.
wouldn’t really consider most of that great, but ok
Who said they have to be great? When’s the last time WWE made a superstar compilation DVD where every match on the set was “great”?
Precisely. Nobody thinks Prototype vs. Leviathan matches from OVW are “great”, but we appreciate them being included as it documents the story of a wrestler’s career.
* sigh *
A little disappointing that the U.S. isn’t getting the updated Rock DVD, but if the bonus disc is just stuff from 2011 onward, I won’t worry too much about it.
Like RabidHeat said, I can see the McIntyre DVD just being his key PPV matches, which would be something a lot of collectors already have. Probably be a good release for those who either don’t buy the PPVs at all or are selective as to which ones they do buy. The only thing I can think of that they would include that we don’t already have is his 2nd world title win over Orton.
Hope the rock dvd is good that drew dvd might not be that good i dont hate drew he’s good but lately how they are booking him isn’t to good sadly i’m thinking about buying the rock dvd have to see what matches are on it first but thanks for giving us these updates on new releases of dvd content
Nice news for those who don’t already have ‘Most Electrifying Man…’ and the necessary footage from Rock’s 2011 return onwards, but I have the original release, plus ‘Epic Journey’ and the ‘Once in a Lifetime’ set, along with Rock’s appearances at ‘Mania 29, 30, 31 and 32, so I’m not feeling it essential to fork out for this updated version.
Disappointing about the Drew release being a single-disc release; I can’t imagine that’s really gonna be worthwhile as it’ll probably just be his key pay-per-view matches that most of us have anyway.
I pre ordered The Rock via Amazon UK and it appears they’re shipping worldwide again. I have no idea why they didn’t for a while.
How long have they not been doing it for? I’m just wondering if it was a Covid thing.
That would make a lot of sense.
