In the promo, filmed during WWE’s recent UK tour, McIntyre can be seen holding a copy of the finished product, which he refers to as the “greatest DVD of all time!”

The UK release of “Drew McIntyre: The Best of WWE”s Scottish Warrior” will be stickered in a similar way McIntyre’s book was back in April – like was on the book, a sticker on the DVD’s packaging will read “Britain’s First WWE Champion”.
This single-disc offering will feature over 3 hours of career-defining matches. The UK gets the DVD on Monday December 13th, the US gets it just one day later on Tuesday December 14th.
Officially available this week as an exclusive to fans in the UK is the Special Collector’s Edition of “The Rock: The Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment” from way back in 2008, now with a bonus disc of extra material!
YouTuber the2004punk has a great video – shown below – comparing the packaging of the new release (a 4-disc set) vs. the original (a 3-disc set) side-by-side.
Unfortunately, we can confirm in the actual footage on the DVD the references to WWF are still blurred out/muted in the earlier matches. Reading between the lines, it sounds like there was little Fremantle could do to change this as WWE likely supplied the UK licensee with the original masters.
On the positive side, the updated set is now a more complete package, adding 3 hours of post-2008 Rock matches and moments.
|THE ROCK – THE MOST ELECTRIFYING MAN IN SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT (SPECIAL EDITION)|
Throughout The Rock’s incredible sports-entertainment career, fans and foes alike knew enough to know their role, shut their mouth, or risk a beatdown from the Brahma Bull. While he’s gone from WWE rings to the big screen, his impact on professional wrestling will never be forgotten.
The Rock: The Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment highlights the meteoric rise of The Great One, the first man to hold the WWE Championship seven times. This package is packed with 4 discs filled with 23 amazing matches, including:
- WWE Intercontinental Championship Match: The Rock vs. Owen Hart
- Last Man Standing for the WWE Championship: The Rock vs. Mankind
- WrestleMania XV, WWE Championship Match: The Rock vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin
- Steel Cage Match: The Rock vs. Triple H
- WWE Tag Team Championship Match: The Rock & Mankind vs. Undertaker & Big Show
- WWE Undisputed Championship Match: The Rock vs. Chris Jericho
- WrestleMania X8, Icon vs. Icon: The Rock vs. Hollywood Hulk Hogan
- WrestleMania XXVIII: The Rock vs. John Cena
And over a dozen more…!
This electrifying 4-disc DVD collection is available now on Amazon.co.uk and WWEDVD.co.uk.
Hey how’s the update for DVD releases in the US for 2022? I know for a fact they are not going to stop releasing ppvs so what’s going on? Just didn’t get the details yet,if not it’s cool, just asking.
Just a little side note on the Attitude DVD, in the match Shawn vs Diesel from IYH Best Friends Better Enemies, the sequence in the match where Diesel chokes out Earl Hebner with athletic tape first, takes Earl’s belt and chokes out Shawn then hangs Shawn from the ropes with it, is edited out completely.
Yeah that sucks just get the In your house DVD or Blu ray set, it’s not edited out there.
WWE needs to release 4 disc “Raw Best of Seasons 3 and 4” DVD set from 1995-1996. Especially Best of Livewire, Best of WCW Thunder DVD series volume 1-3, etc.
not trying to be a jerk. but considering it didn’t even happen at a point when dvd sales were much higher, it’s pretty much 100% certain this is never going to happen.
I would like to see a NXT takeover DVD releases since Vinny Mac has taken over he could decide to.
Since Vince took over, he’s gotten rid of the Takeover name for PPVs. Highly doubt they’ll go back and release the old ones.
I hope 2022 sees a 2nd volume of WWE Unreleased 1986-1995 and unreleased sets on Hulk Hogan, the Ultimate Warrior, & the Undertaker.
I feel like the bonus disc of the re-release of this Rock WOULD have been great, if we hadn’t had the ‘Once in a Lifetime’ set. I literally don’t need that bonus disc since I have the OiaL set, so I’ll stick with the original + the Epic Journey set. All bases covered really.
At first I was a bit bummed about The Rock DVD not coming in the States, but now that I know that the first 3 discs are the same master from the original release and the 4th disc is stuff we already have from other releases, I don’t feel I’m missing out anymore. I still would’ve gotten it had it been released here since I am a sucker for special edition releases, but this isn’t something I’d go out of my way to get, like I have other UK releases.
Always a bit relieved to see bluray versions of the shows being announced.
Also, despite being a bit underwhelmed by the listing, I’ll probably still get the “1996” set.
