As we’ve been reporting, the new Goldberg WWE DVD is incoming for October release. The official synopsis has now been released.
Goldberg was one of the most dominant and talented individuals ever witnessed in sports entertainment, exploding onto the scene by amassing an epic win streak of 173 matches. Throughout his WCW career he defeated legends such as Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash and Diamond Dallas Page. As he crossed over to the WWE, this powerhouse continued his dominance taking on such Superstars as The Rock, Triple H, and Brock Lesnar among others. This 3-disc compilation features some of the biggest matches in Goldberg’s impressive career and showcases why his legacy will forever be cemented in sports entertainment.
The Goldberg match compilation will be produced as a 3-DVD/2-BD set, and is available to pre-order right now over here at Amazon.com for release on October 8th, 2013.
There is currently no word that Goldberg himself has been involved with the project.
The synopsis for the Money in the Bank Anthology has also now been released. As we heard about a couple of months ago, The Miz will be hosting this DVD and Blu-ray feature. It’s on the way for October and we now can tell from the new details that it will contain all MITB matches to date, which will no doubt include those taking place at the next PPV.
Hosted by The Miz, the compilation features every Money in the Bank Ladder Match in history. The match debuted at WrestleMania 21 in 2005, quickly becoming a WrestleMania tradition and in 2010 proved so popular that it was given its own annual PPV event. Several top Superstars have been Money in the Bank winners including John Cena, Kane, Edge, CM Punk (twice!), Rob Van Dam and many more. 11 of the first 12 winners have used the match as a springboard to winning a championship, and several times the match has helped a Superstar who has never win a World Championship break through to claim their first. Much like the Royal Rumble Match, the Money in the Bank match represents a golden opportunity for a Superstar to achieve immortality, and its entire lineage is presented here.
As revealed here yesterday, WWE Payback 2013 will be produced on Blu-ray format in the United States after all. It has now been listed on Amazon for October release, which confirms the three month store exclusivity window. This is likely to be Best Buy.
To clarify, Payback will be released on both DVD and Blu-ray on July 16th. The DVD will be available widely but the Blu-ray will be a store exclusive for the first three months of release.
