Exclusive: Details on WWE’s Triple H DVD & Blu-Ray – Documentary? Runtimes?

June 3, 2013 by Daniel Bee

WWE Triple H

WWE will release a new Triple H biography on Tuesday, September 24th.

Promising to delve into The Game’s entire career with an in-depth documentary, the new feature is coming on both DVD and Blu-ray formats. We can now exclusively reveal the official synopsis for the set and first details of what to expect.

Triple H continues to build upon his enduring legacy. From 13-time World Champion to COO, Triple H has played multiple roles spanning decades. Packed with over 3 hours of documentary footage, all-new interviews and matches, this compilation profiles Triple H’s entire career as well as his current executive role with the WWE.

Although the synopsis mentions 3 hours of documentary material, our information tells us that the main feature will in fact have an approximate 2 hour runtime. Therefore the extra hour referred to above may well be Blu-ray exclusive content.

Expect to see around 7 hours of footage in total contained on the DVD version, 5 hours of which will be devoted to extra matches and special features.

The release has not yet been given an official name, but you’ll be able to pre-order the new Triple H DVD or Blu-ray on major retail sites in the coming weeks.

    I have all the Triple H dvd now so I may have to get this depends on what on it I hope it has match that were never release like the the one that had him in the Inferno match and Casket match collection that was on Smackdown .

  2. Nick says:

    Would have like to see the benjamin match from 04 but “somebody” is at ringside so that is a no.

    Also expecting a Lesnar match as well. Apart from the Ironman and LMS matches I dont know what else they can put on here.

  3. John Peterson says:

    This is really the last chance for The Triple H vs Rock Ironman Match to be released,If not,It may never be put on a set.Also would like to see the LMS Match with Jericho on here as well

  4. Anonymous says:

    If they really want to make this as great as it could be, most of the following should be on it:
    6/18/94 WCW Worldwide vs Larry Zbyszko
    9/3/94 WCW Saturday Night vs Steamboat
    11/94 WCW Pro vs Dustin Rhodes
    8/14/95 RAw vs. Jeff Hardy
    12/1/96 Superstars vs. Goldust
    7/13/00 Smackdown NO Dq vs. Undertaker
    8/17/00 Smackdown vs. The Rock
    2/8/01 Smackdown vs. Jericho
    3/28/02 Smackdown Flair/HHH vs. McMahon/Angle
    9/2/02 RAW versus Ric Flair on the night that HHH is awarded the title

    This gives us an excellent look at HHH on the rise in WCW, what he was like pre-DX, what he was like as a main eventer and also has the McMahon connection.

      Add to this list of 10 matches the following four and you have a winner:
      5/16/99 No Mercy vs. Austin vs. Undertaker
      9/26/99 Unforgiven vs. Rock vs. Mankind vs. Big Show vs. Bulldog vs. Kane
      7/23/00 Fully Loaded Last Man Standing vs. Chris Jericho
      9/24/00 Unforgiven No DQ vs Kurt Angle

      And, with these 14 matches there’d still be plenty of time to fit a bunch more because these likely won’t even be 4 1/2 hours.

      • Simon says:

        The No Mercy 1999 triple-threat match was already released on Steve Austin’s Blu-Ray. I don’t see the need for it to be included on this set, especially as Trips didn’t get the win.

  5. Charles says:

    Triple H was never my favorite wrestler or near it, but this guy is devoted to wrestling and has done a lot for this buisiness. Probably I won’t buy it unless the match list is crazy, but I will watch the doc on netflix for sure.

  6. HunterWW says:

    Betcha his debut on Raw won’t be on there…

  7. wrestlingfan says:

    I am really looking foward to the HHH set

  8. hbkid718 says:

    I’m looking forward to this. But I’m only going to buy it if it includes Triple H’s matches as Terra Ryzing and Jean-Paul Leveque (sp?) in WCW and his greatest matches in WWE, his Hog Pen Match against Henry Godwinn & his Royal Rumble Qualifying Match against Duke the Dumpster Drose.

    • dillian says:

      the hog pen match it likely wont because it was on hhh king of kings

    • Anonymous says:

      There’s no way a match against a pig farmer or garbage man should make it on any best of.

      However, he had some really good matches against some great opponents in WCW. I’m referring to the last good match of Ricky Steamboat’s career, and some matches against Dustin Rhodes and Larry Zbyszko where his true talent really started to shine. Certainly no more than about 25 minutes should be dedicated to his WCW career, but there has to be some (one to three matches) WCW on it.

  9. CrimeDawg says:

    Look forward to this one, would be cool to see the Iron Man Match with The Rock on there.
    I was there live in Louisville, Ky at Judgment Day 2000 to see that match and the show. When Taker came out at the end, to borrow a cliche, the roof literally came off Freedom Hall.

    • Anonymous says:

      I honestly hope the Ironmatch match isn’t on there. I’d much rather have three unreleased 15-minute Rock matches from Raw or Smackdown, along with a WCW match.

  10. Wonderllama says:

    This really, really, REALLY should gotten the four disc DVD/three disc Blu-Ray treatment that Stone Cold got.

    If you look at 2003 as the year WWE finally started making great career sets (like From The Vault – Shawn Michaels or The Ultimate Ric Flair Collection), here are the numbers of terms of singles career discs since then:

    Undertaker – 10 DVDs of content
    Shawn Michaels – 9 DVDs of content
    Rey Mysterio – 9 DVDs of content
    Steve Austin – 8 DVDs of content
    John Cena – 8 DVDs of content
    The Rock – 6 DVDs of content
    Hulk Hogan – 6 DVDs of content
    Triple H – 2 DVDs of content (King of Kings set)

    There’s a huge disparity there! Who knows when we might see another HHH collection. This might be it for a really long time.

    • Anonymous says:

      The Triple H set has the potential to be the best set of the year (or second best to Nitro).

      This list serves as a great reminder: When are we finally going to get another Ric Flair DVD set? I know it scored very highly in the last year-end poll on this website. And, I know that Flair sets always sell extremely well. Here’s hoping for another Flair set!

    • wrestlingfan says:

      I am right there with you, I would like to see a set on Evolution also

  11. NickP says:

    I wonder if Bret Hart was interviewed for the HHH set? Giving 4/10 for ever HHH moment.

    • Anonymous says:

      What would you expect a slightly better than 4 out of 10 performer (this is a performance where such things as mic work, look, charisma, etc come into play) like Hart to say? Notice how the only guys he ever speaks well of tend to kiss his butt? Case in point: HBK. When Michaels didn’t kiss his butt, Hart knocked him to no end. Now that he does kiss Hart’s butt, Michaels is one of the greatest. Yeah Bret, your word means so much. HA!

  12. A fan of wrestling says:

    Ha ha !!!
    What a crappy DVD for a crappy wrestler !
    Triple H = 4/10 at best .

  13. Brian Kraemer says:

    Great point David.

    Even if they use 25GB.. that’s still 9 hours on two discs. Of all wrestlers hhh is one that deserves it

  14. Brian Kraemer says:

    checked some info out on capacity of blu ray disc:

    Over 9 hours of high-definition (HD) video on a 50GB disc.
    About 23 hours of standard-definition (SD) video on a 50GB disc

    why are we only getting 7 hours on 2 discs?

    • Anonymous says:

      VERY, VERY GOOD QUESTION!

      The disgustingly low number of hours on the releases and the number or repeats they’re putting out of late has me rethinking my plans to buy every release.

      • David says:

        I think if WWE was devoted to releasing only Blu-rays and not DVDs there might be a lot more content. Plus i think WWE are only releasing on two 25GB discs. If they started to use 50GB discs, cost of releases will most probably go up.

        Also off topic here, not sure if people noticed but i see WWE removed resume playback feature on their Blu-rays from 2012. I was watching Ladder Match 2 and i stopped it half way and took the disc out, when continued the next day it resumed from where it left off. I tried Best of KOTR and started from the beginning when i stopped. Its a small feature, but i hope WWE will bring this back.

        • Steve says:

          The software for Blu Ray that allows the resume function is called Java. WWE stopped putting it on DVD’s starting with Best of KOTR. I could never understand why but it is completely annoying that you have to restart the disc every time. But don’t worry because now we have subtitles & Repeats!

    • WrastlinnDVDCollector!! says:

      If you read the article again it says the dvd version is going to up to 7 hours, most likely the blu ray version will be up to 8hours 30 mins as wwe blu-ray usually are thesedays so you will get more content on the blu-ray compared to the dvd dont worry about that, i dont know where you got the information of 7 hours on 2 discs, must have been mislead or read it wrong, since wwe have released blu-rays i havent seen one set below 8 hours so why would they start now!!!

  15. Simon says:

    In addition to the Iron Man Match, am also hoping for the WM2000 four-way match as I don’t own that PPV. Plus, it’s never appeared on any compilation sets, unlike most WM main events.

  16. Timothy Thorpe says:

    I’d love to see the Iron Man with The Rock, having never seen it at all. But since it appears it’s a 3 dvd/2 blu ray format, I’ll be surprised if it shows up at all. With only 5 hours devoted to matches, I can’t see them putting an hour plus chapter on the set. I’d love to be wrong, though.

  17. Brian Kraemer says:

    Im looking foward to this as well!!! I hope it spans all from WCW to WWF to WWE….

    Im pre-ordering this the day it comes out on amazon.. have a whole bunch of trade ins processing.. it will be hard not to spend it before this comes out though!

  18. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    I am really looking forward to the Triple H documentary. I’m sure we will learn some interesting facts during his career we didn’t know previously. The Iron Man match with The Rock at Judgment Day 2000 HAS to be on the Blu-ray edition.

  19. Justin says:

    I’m really looking forward to this set. I really hope they put the iron man match he had with the Rock on here. They never released it. But other than that this is going to be another great set from WWE.

  20. Ryan says:

    Looking forward to this, hopefully it will be worth buying.

  21. SRB says:

    I’m very excited for the HHH set. With releases like The Game and That Damn Good, even King of Kings, they barely scratched the surface. I’m looking forward to some WCW work, early WWE work, which I’m sure will carry him to his current run. I’m not sure of any matches in particular that I really want on the set, but I’ve been a huge fan of his work with HBK, Hardy and Angle.
