WWE 'Shawn Michaels: The Showstopper Unreleased' DVD - Logo

Tune up the band for some Sweet Chin Music — it’s time to get a look at the official cover artwork for “Shawn Michaels: The Showstopper Unreleased”.

Last month exclusively revealed the full list of never-before-released HBK matches that WWE is set to unearth on this anticipated 3-disc DVD collection.

Now, courtesy of, comes the planned box artwork and with it confirmation that the UK release is locked in for October 1st, 2018, one day before the US version hits stores.

That content listing we spoke of is made up of 35 full-length matches; that’s 8 hours of hidden gems and will include a brand new interview with the man himself! “Shawn Michaels: The Showstopper Unreleased” is HBK as you’ve never, ever seen him before with a mix of rare and scarcely seen matches from all stages of Shawn’s career between the years 1985 and 2009; footage from Mid-South Wrestling, the AWA, and loads of unseen WWE dark matches and live events!

You can check out the newly-revealed artwork below and click it to see it SUPER-SIZED.



For the first time on DVD, WWE Home Video goes deep into the WWE archives to bring you unreleased classics featuring “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels. Enjoy rare matches from the legendary career of “The Showstopper”.

This is the next chapter in the Unreleased series (that previously featured the “Macho Man”) and presents Never-Before-Released classics with The Undertaker, Bret Hart, Kurt Angle and Stone Cold Steve Austin!

    NOTICE: Some comments had to be removed on recent articles due to arguments and insults made without any sort of relevance to the topic.

    If it doesn’t cool down you might find yourself with comments automatically flagged for moderation so they won’t show until approved. Nobody wants that.

    Removal of comments like this and the extra moderation involved means more work for the WDN staff and less time put into the stories we aim to deliver. We preferred having the trust to leave you guys to your own devices and comment responsibly without intervention. Didn’t you?

    Stick to the topic, be friendly. DVDs vs. Blu-rays… well, at least that’s sometimes on topic but keep in mind WWE is only releasing WrestleMania on Blu-ray domestically and that isn’t changing, so the debate doesn’t mean a great deal at this point.

    On topic but going out of your way to be overly negative to evoke some sort of reaction from other commenters? No go either. The above will apply in this case too.

    Trolling? Playing a character? Not in our 8-year-strong community.

    Thank you to the good guys. 😎

    I like the cover, it does a good job showing
    him in the different stages of his career.

  3. Anan says:

    I guess they feel unreleased content is enough to sell the set and that’s true enough, at least so far. But still can’t help but feel it’d be nice if they were 4 discs even if the 4th were a bonus disc on limited edition or special edition versions of these sets only. I’m saying 4 bc I find that more realistic than 5 discs.

  4. Ramone Coffey says:

    That art cover is lit. I can’t wait to get my hands on this dvd when it come out.

  5. Bitter Bret says:


  6. Sean says:

    It’s a nice cover but I’ll pass on the set. I think there’s enough Shawn Michaels material and DVDs out there.

  7. RCS1988 says:

    Now that Hogan is back with the company, maybe a Hogan Unreleased set with TV taping dark matches.

    • Sean says:

      Nah, they already done an unreleased set on him before and even that was kinda boring at times.

    • RabidHeat says:

      How is a Hogan Unreleased set a priority when there has already been one and many other main eventers have yet to have one?

      • SAB says:

        No one said it was a ‘priority’. Just someone expressing an opinion.

        • RabidHeat says:

          He said: “Now that Hogan is back with the company…”

          If it was released now, that would be prioritising Hogan’s second Unreleased set over others.

          • RCS1988 says:

            The 2nd set would be a mix of TV matches, house shows, and TV taping dark matches never released before which wasn’t present on Hogan’s last set. The perfect title can be Hulkamania Unreleased the Unseen Matches of Hulk Hogan.

    • Anan says:

      Idk if that’s a wise idea.
      1. He got an unreleased already.
      2. Other top talent haven’t.
      3. There’s backlash already as it is – understandably so – regarding his re-insertion into the HOF.

      If anyone who previously got an unreleased set is gonna get another one I think it should be either or both Randy Savage or Bret Hart considering their in ring talent. I’m gonna say Bret more though only bc Savage just had an unreleased set while Bret’s was some years ago. However I rather they focus releasing unreleased sets on top talent who’ve yet to get one and there’s still plenty names on that list. To name just some:




      Stone Cold




      Kurt Angle




      • SCSA says:

        I’m starting to agree! I think that an ‘Undertaker Unreleased’ set would be great watching!

        Shawn Michaels & Stone Cold being my favourite superstars, we have this Michaels Unreleased coming out, though I think I’d only prefer seeing an Austin Unreleased on most of his ‘Attitude Era’ matches!
        Same w/Kane – matches from his debut – the Attitude Era!

        • Anan says:

          Definitely an Undertaker Unreleased set would be amazing! He’s one of the most requested dvd projects as far as an unreleased set and a documentary set. I know bc I’m one of those who’s constantly requesting it to WWE via social media.

          I can understand your points on Austin and Kane. Though I don’t agree w/it as far as Kane goes.

  8. meme says:

    I’m fine with the cover it’s just they could have represented all of the eras of his career

    • Anan says:

      Agreed but I think the awesome cover is good enough and represents the important parts of his career or that the cover reflects the parts of his career that are represented in the contents of the set.

  9. Ricardo Aguilera says:

    Can’t wait for it I’m getting something for my birthday that month

  10. SRB says:

    Love it! Terrific artwork! That picture of him doing the superkick reminds me of something from the cover of an old karate movie. “Pray for Death! Here comes HBK to clean up the city!”

  11. Vintage Simon says:

    Wow, that’s an awesome cover. Kudos to the home video department!

  12. RabidHeat says:

    Best cover I’ve seen in a long time. Love it!

  13. SCSA says:

    You know, above with the artwork it also states, ‘Now, courtesy of, comes the planned box artwork’. However ‘’ still haven’t shown the ‘Shawn Michaels Unreleased’ set yet!

    When on earth is it gonna be available for pre-ordering⁉️

    • RabidHeat says:

      “When on earth…”? Why are you so tetchy about it? It will go up soon, chill! Do you have to have the set by a certain date or something?!

    • Daniel Bee says:

      It’s not available to pre-order anywhere in the UK just yet to my knowledge, but should be very soon. 🙂

      • SCSA says:

        You’re right. I just thought that it may have been today since the front cover has been given by courtesy of

  14. Jordan B says:

    Absolutely love the artwork. I feel like they really tried on this one.

  15. whut says:

    while I don’t feel like that artwork is spectacular, it’s not too bad either.
