This time last month WrestlingDVDNetwork.com had the scoop that WWE gave the official go-ahead to a new Randy Savage DVD and scheduled it for May 2018:
And this Macho Man DVD comes with a twist because, off the back of the success of the “WWE UNRELEASED 1986-1995” DVD collection last year, the entirety of its content will be made up of never-before-seen and never-before-released matches unearthed for the first time!
Given the returning theme some expected Sean Mooney to return as host and if that included you, you were exactly right! The former WWE announcer will be involved with the next installment in the series and he’s bringing a few friends along with him.
“Randy Savage Unreleased: The Unseen Matches of the Macho Man” will feature Sean Mooney, Diamond Dallas Page, Bayley and Corey Graves in a sit-down discussion of the Macho Man’s career. Early indications are that this could either be presented as the main feature of the DVD or, more likely, act as host segments introducing some of the chosen matches.
Diamond Dallas Page confirmed that this sit-down was indeed shot for the purpose of the new DVD and has commented on the experience via his Twitter account, shown below. PWInsider.com reports that WWE brought in DDP (and presumably Sean Mooney) to the site of this week’s RAW in Phoenix, Arizona to film interview content for this and several other upcoming WWE projects.
You may have spotted some initial logo artwork for “Randy Savage Unreleased” shown above which can also be found here on Amazon.co.uk where fans in the United Kingdom can already pre-order the DVD for May. The full match listing for the new Hardy Boyz DVD (another May release) was unveiled earlier this week so the same for the Macho Man set is on the way very soon!

For those asking about the status of WWE’s “Double Feature” PPV packs, while details are still scarce we can confirm that the scheduled “Double Feature: Elimination Chamber & Fastlane 2018” DVD is going ahead as planned.
That’s because those events will still be independent as RAW and SmackDown exclusives, however following WrestleMania all PPVs will now be dual-branded and feature stars from both shows.
As far as the PPV DVD releases go the move appears to negate the need for the double packs since there will now be a reduced number of PPV events in a year and it could even make the 2-disc DVD sets an impossibility if all PPVs are now to be 4 hours in length. The premise of the double packs after all was to present one RAW-branded PPV with one SmackDown-branded PPV.
