This coming week on http://WrestlingDVDNetwork.com – join us for exclusive teasers, tidbits & clips from #WWE's new "OWEN: HART OF GOLD" DVD!!
Posted by WWEDVDNews.com on Sunday, 15 November 2015
As announced on our Facebook page over the weekend (shown again above) all this week we’ll be giving exclusive coverage of WWE’s new “Owen – Hart of Gold” DVD and Blu-ray!
To do so, we’re bringing back OWEN WEEK to get you ready for the release…
First up, let’s take a look at the very first screenshots!
Also below are the planned runtimes for each of the DVD discs and Blu-ray exclusive content.
DISC 1: 1 hour and 7 minutes
DISC 2: 2 hours and 48 minutes
DISC 3: 2 hours and 29 minutes
BLU-RAY EXCLUSIVES: 1 hour and 17 minutes
Just a handful of the noteworthy interviewees shown in the documentary feature through new and archive footage include: Vince McMahon, Triple H, Mick Foley, Edge, Chris Jericho, Scott Hall, Lex Luger, Mike Chioda, Tyson Kidd, Natalya, Davey Boy Smith, and Jim Neidhart.
WWE also reached out to Owen’s brothers Bret, Keith, Bruce, and Ross for new interview material in the documentary, along with Owen’s sisters Alison, Diana, Georgia, and Ellie.
As was expected, Owen’s widow Martha Hart and her two children, Oje and Athena, do not appear. In May of this year Martha stated publicly that they have no support for the project.
The “Owen – Hart of Gold” DVD and Blu-ray hits stores worldwide next month.
Due to “technical reasons” the release to fans in Australia has been delayed 1 week but everywhere else looks to be unaffected as of right now. Updated release times are shown below.

Oh quit bitching about the run time of the Documentary
Tired of these short 1hr documentaries.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH AND ITS TIME FOR A CHANGE.
While I wish the doc was longer, as long as what’s contained in the doc is good, I’m happy. Aside from Bret Hart, I thought HBK and Ken Shamrock were two of Owen’s best rivals and Jerry Lawler in his classic heel commentator days was a huge Owen Hart supporter. So I’m curious as to why those three were not contacted to be interviewed as they are not in the above list of interviewees.
The length of the documentary doesn’t bother me as much as the length of the discs, especially disc 1. DVD’s can hold up to 3 hours per disc and Blu-rays can hold well over 4 hours per disc. They did the same thing with the Streak release, spreading out over 5 discs. I don’t understand the logic behind this. It’s like they’re spreading them thin by giving you less content, yet charging you more. You hear “3 disc” or “5 disc” and you think you’re getting more for your money, but you’re actually getting way less.
These days, usually when DVD Disc 1 is only going to be the documentary, they use Single Layer discs where as the other 2 Discs in the set are Dual Layer. I’m sure it’s a cost cutting move as a reason to edit down the documentary. A lot of the older documentaries that are longer were put on Dual Layer discs.
If it’s a cost cutting move then shouldn’t the prices of these DVDs/BRs be cheaper? At least in theory.
Cost cutting on their end….not ours. lol. Actually, the prices (in my area at least), have really gone down compared to what they use to be years ago. Most WWE DVD 3-Disc sets retail between $16.99 – $19.99 locally, where some 5, 6 years ago they were all essentially $24.99. The WWE Blu Ray sets when first started were going for as much as $39.99 in some stores. That I thought was outrageous!
Based on the runtimes, couldn’t this have just been a two-disc set?
Seems like their style of producing documentaries has changed since the network. They seem to be more like network shows rather than full fledge documentaries.
Excited about this release but like others, disc one is too short. Still though, great to see and way past due. Owen Hart WWE HOF 2016?
i sorta agree why is it last few bios are so damn short. when was last bio that went 2 hours ? maybe triple h 2013 ?? or foley seams like after those they just got shorter sad really
Paul Heyman is 2 hours. While I do agree that the Lawler was pretty rushed, the Bryan, Shield and Kliq docs really did not need to be much longer.. I’d wait to shoot docs down, before I actually seen it.. Quality is not measured in lenght, but in content.. the other way is absolutely also happening, courtesey of the dreadfull repetitive long Monday Night War release.
I’m sick of these one hour documentaries. Guys like Owen, Sting & Ultimate Warrior deserve the normal 2 hr doco. This is just textbook retardedness.
No, that comment is. Quantity does not equal quality. Watch the doc before you start throwing words around like that
On that basis, would you have been okay with the doc being just ten minutes, so long as it was really awesome?
The runtime for disc 1 is a disgrace! They could have given us almost two extra hours of matches…
I have to agree with you. It’s had enough that the Owen is Raw tributes are Blu-ray exclusives. I thought that was down to time constraints. Clearly not. I’ll still get the DVD, but I’m disappointed.
