WWEDVDNews.com has learned that the FYE (Trans World Entertainment) retail chain in the United States may soon cease stocking WWE DVD titles altogether in their stores.
The recent lack of FYE exclusive WWE DVD releases, marked down DVD prices, “buy 1 get 1 free” sale and general low stocks of each new WWE DVD (e.g. 2-3 units per store) are all signs that point towards this being the case.
Speaking with Danny Gowen at WWEDVDNews, a region manager of FYE suggested the chain no longer want to be known for or associated with selling wrestling DVDs, and that it is these titles in addition to the animation genre which they want to move away from. Instead focusing their attention on more typically mainstream entertainment titles such as major movies. The source gave the impression this will be the same for all of the FYE stores across the USA.
The reduced coverage is also evident in some K-Mart stores also, where WWE DVDs are being sent back from the stores and in some instances these outlets have not been stocking new titles since the last major release of WWE WrestleMania 26 on DVD.
