An electrifying WWE DVD is one of the next on the horizon; “The Rock: The Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment (Special Edition)”, a UK exclusive that brings back the popular 2008 title but now with bonus material to make this a 4-disc DVD set!
Fremantle have unveiled these new shots of the artwork you’ll find on the finished packaging.
The bonus disc will include 4 matches The Rock competed in since the original Home Video release, plus the segment that kicked it all off in which Rock returned to WWE to announce he would guest host WrestleMania.
Pre-order the “Special Edition” 4-disc DVD set here on Amazon.co.uk, releasing November 15th.
The content for Crown Jewel is available on wwedvd.co.uk, and it’s available for pre order on Amazon North America.
Still no news close to the release of the rock dvd to know if the wwf scratch logo will be blurred or not like the original 2008 release, are they using the same master that will have those wwf edits or a new master that is unedited for the most part but mainly no blurring, would be a waste of release if the wwf logo is blurred since they have been freely using the wwf logo for the best part of 9 years on the network and home video releases?
They’ve already confirmed that they’re using the original master so discs 1-3 will have the scratch logo blurred.
Can you show proof of this, have been on WWE Home Video Twitter feed and no mentions there, this is really important cause i may cancel my pre order
The WWE Home Video UK Facebook page posted an ad for the DVD on the 26th of October and someone asked about the blurs. Another person commented (having asked the question themselves) with a screen grab showing the reply “the new re-release of the original discs will be the same as the original, with the blurs, but the new material/extra 4th disc will be completely unedited”
I’m sure I’ve seen that same response somewhere else too but I can’t think where. Disappointing really because if the set was unblurred I would’ve bought it in a heartbeat. There’s nothing on the 4th disc that justifies the purchase for me 🙁
Thanks @mikes_87 – i will cancel my pre-order not going to waste £15 on a edited blurred mess, i originally had the 2008 dvd but sold it and remember how bad the blurring of the wwf logos were, in this day n age where the wwf logo is used freely on the wwe network and home video releases since late 2012 using the same master with edits is pretty jarring especially since wwe home video could have gone back and used a master without the edits like they have done for the wrestlemania 14-18 re-releases, im pretty sure a master of this release is available without edits?
I can confirm that’s true, unfortunately. Sounds to me there was nothing Fremantle could do. WWE supplied the masters.
those UK (re)releases of WrestleMania being entirely uncut isn’t accurate. I recently watched the Mania XIV one. and there were definitely things altered compared to the 1998 vhs version.
I never had the WWF released VHS version as I actually have the live recorded event. What are some things that are on the VHS version compared to the DVDs?
Is the DX band intro and the Stone Cold University advertisement intact on the VHS version, or are they cut out like the anthology and the network? And are these edits still present on the DVD?
WHUT: yeaaah.. it’s like when they launched the Network in 2014, when the Billionaire princess Steph said: ” … uncut and unedited … ”
What it really is, it is unblurred. But, guess it sounds a lot better and more important to sell it as being uncut and unedited.
It is ridilicous that there can actually be 2-3…some even 4 different runtimes versions of the same show, regarding cuts, edits and alterations.
For instance: Royal Rumble 1989: one of the rare occasions where the Network actually has the longest runtime, compared to the 3 DVD versions that I have in collection. And those 3 versions have all different runtimes, going from just under 2 hours, one a little more than 2 hours and third one a little more than 2½ hours, with the Network version a few minutes more on top of that.
Taking out segments for musical rights I can understand to some extend, but having several segments butchered, altered or even omitted…and then still advertising it as being Uncut and Unedited is imho like p.ss.ng on your consumers.
It will be interesting to hear if there’s edits in the Rock-re-release, more specific in the promos. And especially the Great One’s awesome promo on RAW before the HIAC match at Armageddon 2000: his opinion on HHH…and especially HHH’s wife…is definitely not something going along with this era.
I’m so glad that this newest ”CROWN JEWELL” is getting a united states home video release. I heard that ”T.L.C” has been cancelled. I wonder why. If that’s true, then that means that next month’s ”SURVIVOR SERIES” will be the last pay-per-view of the year unless they have something else to take it’s place.
I also want to say congrats to Xaviar Woods on being the new ”KING OF THE RING”. That cape and crown fits him like a glove. Tomorrow’s ”SMACKDOWN” will be good.
Wow they don’t waste any time. They just had this event earlier today and already they got the home video d.v.d cover out. The event was great, especially the triple threat women’s match for the ”SMACKDOWN” title. Congratulations to Zelina Vega for being the first ever ”QUEEN OF THE RING”. Hey Charlotte, bow down to the REAL QUEEN.
Feels so weird that the US is finally getting a Crown Jewel DVD since controversy canned the ’18 release, and who knows why ’19 was a UK only release. Nonetheless, I’m happy and now that I think about it, this is the first time since 2017 that the US is getting a full year of PPV releases, since the reasons I just mentioned have prevented that before.
Bas 2019 was a uk only realease as it had british boxer tyson fury on it against Braun Strowman. I apreciate americans feeling frustrated as it also had the fiend vs seth rollins on it.
I never thought of it that way, but I guess that does make sense now. In that case, are you able to answer why other events have been UK exclusive released as well, such as Elimination Chamber 2015, Beast in the East, Payback 2020? Or even why Backlash/No Mercy 2016 went unreleased?
Sorry for the string of questions, but there’s never really been a straight answer for this. My guess was always that it had to do with them being last minute events and they couldn’t be added to the release schedule since the schedule was already set in stone and last minute changes would’ve caused distribution problems.
I think beast in the east and elimantion chamber were replacements for some cancelled realeases I believe that would have had footage from uk shows. generally freemantle the uk supplier seem to be demanding of wwe to give them more realeases but they dont always agree. I know wwe would not let them have backlash/no mercy. I cant work that out either as they would have sold that. Generally speaking given wwe dont realease there own dvds anymore I cant work out why they dont give the licensee more freedom to pick what they think will sell. If you hold the wwe dvd licence there are things you are ordered to realease that might not sell and things you might want realease that they dont let you…
