The new Shawn Michaels “Mr. WrestleMania” DVD which hit stores only last week looks to be performing well in sales early on. Both DVD and Blu-ray editions have at times sold out here on Amazon.com, with the DVD version currently offered only by third party sellers.
Below to watch is a new preview clip of “Mr. WrestleMania”. This shows part of the intro video where Shawn Michaels looks back on his WrestleMania highlights.
One of the latest promotional videos for the launch of the WWE Network shows off a few more DVD features possibly streaming on there. A few of those include The History of the World Heavyweight Championship, 20 Years Too Soon: The Superstar Billy Graham Story, Twist of Fate: The Matt & Jeff Hardy Story, and Jeff Hardy: My Life, My Rules.
It’s worth noting that all DVD titles shown so far in the promotional material for the WWE Network are ones that had documentary portions. The words “entire Home Video library” have been uttered at times by WWE but there’s nothing concrete as yet.
For those interested, the WWE Network app can now be found on Playstation 4 but can only be downloaded from this coming Monday. Thanks to Joshua Mustacchio for the pic below.
WWE Home Entertainment revenues for 2013 were $24.3 million overall, which is a decline from $33 million the previous year. A few less Home Video titles offered in the year and lower than usual pricing are said to be two major reasons for the drop. Consumer product revenues as a whole were down for the company over the full year vs. 2012.
Below is an excerpt of the Q4 2013 Earnings Report:
Home Entertainment net revenues were $5.0 million as compared to $9.6 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease was driven by a 33% decline in the average price per unit to approximately $8 due, in part, to a higher proportion of catalog sales than in the prior year quarter. This shift derived from changes at retail, including reduced space for DVD inventory and demand for lower priced product. Shipments of catalog titles increased 51% and accounted for 57% of total unit shipments compared to 35% in the prior year quarter. Based on the sustained increase in catalog shipments, which historically have been characterized by lower sell-through rates, estimated returns increased to 51% from 37% of gross revenue. Also contributing to the decline in net home entertainment revenue, overall shipments fell 8% to 1.1 million with two fewer releases in the quarter (9 in Q4 2013 vs. 11 in Q4 2012).
According to Key Performance Indicators, the most shipped Home Video titles in the past 9 months were WrestleMania 29, Goldberg: The Ultimate Collection, The History of WWE, The Top 25 Rivalries and ECW Unreleased Vol. 2. In the case of the Goldberg DVD it looks to have out shipped each of the other comparable top titles by nearly 30 thousand units.
