Free trading cards in WWE PPV DVDs is a continuing trend.
There is planned to be a Hell in a Cell 2013 Topps trading card included in this year’s DVD when released on November 25th. Below is the official synopsis.
The 6th annual Hell in a Cell will take place on October 26 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX. The concept is based on WWE’s Hell in a Cell match, which has taken place since October 1997 when Shawn Michaels defeated the Undertaker.
At last year’s event, Randy Orton defeated Daniel Bryan in a Hell in a Cell match for the vacant WWE championship with Shawn Michaels as special guest referee. Also, AJ Lee defeated Brie Bella for the Divas Championship, and John Cena defeated Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Championship.
There looks to be very high demand for the new “Ladies and Gentleman, My Name is Paul Heyman” DVD. It’s currently back-ordered here on Amazon.com with a wait time of up to 2 weeks, but the price has dropped to $18.71 on DVD and $20.97 on Blu-ray.
Many WDN readers have had a hard time finding copies in store, particularly the Blu-ray version. Both the DVD and Blu-ray are in fact still in stock here on WWEShop.com if you’re looking for it online. You can get $5 off orders $30+ with promo code “DVDWWE5”.
The response looks to be the same worldwide. The DVD/Blu-ray is currently out of stock on the UK’s WWEDVD.co.uk site with the product page reading, “Please note due to exceptional demand this title is currently out of stock but is available for pre-order. We are working hard to ensure it is back in stock very soon”. The Australian distributor also sold out of stock for a time.
Below is another WWE.com “online exclusive” video preview, hyping the Heyman DVD.
