Recently WWE announced new Walmart exclusive DVD packs containing Mattel Rumbler action figures inside. With thanks to WDN readers “WrestlingMachine28”, Sean Ross Sapp and Dan Mader we now have some more details and photos.
There are reportedly “over 16” titles in the promotion, all 3/4 disc sets with new packaging to accommodate the figures. We’ve heard the cost of each pack at Walmart is $14.96.
It is interesting to note that the packaging for Raw The Beginning Seasons 1 & 2 (shown in the photo above) says “3-Disc Set” on the front. This title, Stone Cold Bottom Line and The Streak are in fact 4 disc releases despite the apparent misprints in this new promotion.
So far we’ve heard of the following 15 packs. There could be a few more in addition.
– 50 Greatest Finishing Moves
– Best of Raw 2010
– Best of WCW Nitro Vol. 1
– CM Punk: Best in the World
– ECW Unreleased Vol. 1
– Falls Count Anywhere
– Greatest Rivalries: Shawn vs. Bret
– Greatest Steel Cage Matches
– Greatest Superstars of 21st Century
– Ladder Match 2
– Raw The Beginning
– Stone Cold: The Bottom Line
– Top 50 Superstars of All Time
– Undertaker: The Streak
– Wrestling’s Highest Flyers
Last week, “Mr. Fantasy Concept” Mark D posted his episode predictions for the “Raw 20th Anniversary Collection” on Twitter (@_MarkD_). At the time 4 episodes had been revealed by the first official synopsis of the box set and those were included.

Jamyn Blanton sends word of a Raw Homecoming DVD here on Amazon.com currently listed for $74.95, lower than usual. Another decent deal on there is the WrestleMania Anthology (black version signed by Vince McMahon) pictured above, listed here for $399.99.
Do these new packaged DVDs still have the WWF logo blurred? I don’t buy the WCW ones cause I hate Michael Buffer being voiced over by another announcer, and I don’t like the Attitude Era matches being blurred due to the old logo, so just wondering. Thanks!
I want raw 20th anniversary collection!!!!
I’d like to see who all the rumblers are. Does anyone know the complete list?
If you look at these two pics closely of the front & back of the Walmart stand, it looks like for a couple of the DVDs there are different superstar rumblers. Seems like it for the 21st Century and Clash of the Champions DVDs at least.
Hmmm… Think these are worth picking up? Do you see these becoming valueable down the road? Gimme some advice from an expert. What do you think of the product?
Depends what you like. They kind of interest me because I often base my collecting on picking up unique items and store exclusives. Not gonna attempt getting 16 items to the UK where I am though! Anyway they remind me a little of those Hell in a Cell box sets at FYE which included the Taker/Kane busts. Can’t tell you if they will come hard to find or valuable.. who knows?
Are these titles all strictly DVDs or are any of them blu rays?
Looks like DVDs only.
Mark D, Are you sure and have you opened the box to say that the set for RAW 1&2, StoneCold Steve Austin and Undertaker were really 4 discs inside?
Wrestling DVD News is the BEST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!
my bad to my previous comment (wdn still the better site).
On the wrestlezone website it says included on the set is also the first ever raw roulette (2002) and the one where raw ends nitro’s ratings dominance.
Wrestlezone and other dirtsheet site get their info from WDN and RAW Roulette from 2002 was probably a typo and they meant 2003.
As for RAW ending Nitro’s rating dominance, that episode was April 13, 1998 with Austin vs. McMahon which is included.
These are the 11 that were revealed so far:
One of those is Raw Roulette from November 24, 2003. Wrestlezone and other sites regurgitated the news we broke and maybe they didn’t catch that.
Wrestlezone.com might have gotten the wrong date from another news source.
Hold on a minute… why are you even wasting your time going to another site for DVD news? 😉
OMG OMG OMG I’ve been featured on the website that’s so cool. I thought I would just get a retweet or something not be featured on my favorite website. Also, I wonder if anyone will buy all the Rumbler sets and save them sealed and sell them in the future I wonder how much they will be worth in the future and how long Walmart will have this going. But, it’s sorta weird having random Rumblers on the sets like Miz for the Punk DVD and Kofi for the WCW dvd. Doesn’t make sense. Also it says WWE/WWF Deals expiring soon and there’s no links under it.
Looks like people are trying to milk as much as possible on RAW Homecoming before the 20th anniversary set comes out.
Still keeping mine though.
those wwe dvds with toys are to good to be in canada 🙁
I would buy the set just for the Bret Hart vs Sid cage match. That raw was better than WM13
Is the Stone Cold DVD a 4 disc set?
The commenter below said the Raw set had 4 discs as it should so the others probably do too. Just misprints of “3-disc set” on their packaging probably.
Yes and Blu-Ray is 3-Disc
If they are going to include a 2011 episode it should be July 25th 2011 episode. It was amazing you had two WWE title changes, HHH as COO for first time, JR return, CM Punk return.
I bought the Raw: The Beginning set Friday, and it is the full 4 disc set inside.
Ah, okay. Thanks for the update. 🙂
I know they will but I do not want any 2011+ raw episodes.
And The Streak as a 3 Disc?! I’m definitely scoring Austin and the HBK/Bret set which somehow I don’t own.
They cant put the ziggler cash in episode on there because it was after the 20th aniversay
Can’t say that for sure. 1993-2013 is after all 20 years and that’s probably how they will justify it, if they need to.
WWE again not knowing the difference between years/annual/anniversary. The theme should be 20 seasons/years of WWE Raw, not 20th anniversary, but like I said they always get that messed up.
