The order of the day for WWE DVDs might well be the extension of WWE Network specials as of late, but Jerry Lawler’s Home Video – “It’s Good To Be The King: The Jerry Lawler Story” – gives that idea the piledriver and presents an all-new, previously unseen documentary.

On top of the bio we hear that there are over 30 matches and extra segments planned for his DVD/Blu-ray set. Right here at WrestlingDVDNews.com we’re calling this week Jerry Lawler Week, and that means we’re exclusively revealing those extras every day!

    I’m in the minority, as I’d prefer to see WWE matches (as I’ve never really been interested in other promotions). However, I can fully understand why long-time fans would want his pre-WWE matches prominently featured.

    I think the WrestleMania XXVII match was a must, because it’s Lawler’s only WM bout and he campaigned for it for years. I’d also expect at least one match versus Bret Hart (hopefully the IYH 1 match), as it was a landmark feud and probably one of his greatest.

    But some of the matches seem a tad out-of-place. The match with The Undertaker has no historical significance, and isn’t particularly good. And the OVW match would feel more at home on a John Cena set.

    Just out of interest, is the Curt Hennig match available on any other sets?

    • Smokey Bill says:

      “I’m in the minority, as I’d prefer to see WWE matches (as I’ve never really been interested in other promotions).” – this is what you would call a typical casual fan who doesnt know or care about history in pro wrestling.

      “I think the WrestleMania XXVII match was a must, because it’s Lawler’s only WM bout and he campaigned for it for years.” – His feud with Cole was a disaster in the making and their WM match was terrible and it went on too long. If anything wwe producers should’ve just made this a bluray exclusive as he’s had better wwe matches and moments prior to 2011.

      • Gleeba says:

        I love that match being available on DVD. Lawler finally got a WrestleMania match. Was it on too long? I could have watched heel Michael Cole for days! You want to talk about the history of pro wrestling? That WAS history!

      • Vintage Simon says:

        “This is what you would call a typical casual fan who doesnt know or care about history in pro wrestling.”

        Nice try. I’ve actually been a pro wrestling fan for 23 years. It just so happens that I don’t really enjoy any other promotions. I never said I don’t care about the history of pro wrestling, because I do. But for my own personal tastes, I have no interest in seeing territory matches from the 70s. That’s just my preference, and you don’t have to agree with it.

        As for the WM27 match, I never said it was decent (it wasn’t). But it’s the grandest stage Lawler ever had a match at, and it’s historical significance justifies its inclusion (especially if matches against the likes of Al Jackson are present).

        Thanks for your valuable input nonetheless.

  2. Erik says:

    It’s so very unfortunate that any of Jerry Lawler’s WWF/WWE matches were added to this upcoming DVD and Blu-Ray release even though it was always a guarantee that there would be at least several of his WWF/WWE matches included onto this set. Lawler’s WWF/WWE tenure as a wrestler has been such a joke and a disappointment. I wanted all of the matches on this set to be from before he ever arrived to WWF. I’ll still be buying the Blu-Ray version of this set even though it won’t be as good of a set as it could have been.

  3. SRB says:

    Day 1, great. Day 2, not so much.

  4. attitude.era.4life says:

    guess, we could not get to miss the “enjoyment” of the Cole-feud.. let’s hope, that’s the only match from that disaster angle..

    the TLC match against The Miz is nothing more than average, but again, I hope, they keep it to a minimum with the late matches from the King, cos we want mainly the Piledriver-era from the good old days to be highlighted. We’ll see what’s coming.. 🙂

  6. Charlie Brick says:

    It’s good that the wwe Warrior network documentary is finally being released on DVD/blu-ray but in all honesty, the majority of the matches here are all filler & light killer (his major matches coming in the previous release). Here we find a lot of B-side matches (A lot… Warrior vs. Brian Costello anyone? and don’t blink cuz you’ll mis the dream match-up against Frenchy Martin). We also find some dark matches/house show matches, etc. And in all honesty, this is actually quite an accomplishment by WWE to package about 7 hours of Warrior’s video feast of scraps. Are they milking our painted hero? Well, yes. For me, personally, the majority of this release brings on a big yawn, seeing as his best we have already seen. But I will purchase it for the documentary as that was beautifully done. And that third disc with all his promos? Well, nothing wrong with a new ultimate warrior drink coaster. Okay, everyone. I am finished: ready-set-hate!

    • Daniel Bee says:

      It helps that the very documentary you want on DVD/Blu-ray is being extended by 30mins here. Sounds like that might satisfy if the other content does not. 🙂

    • Gilbang says:

      This is the second Brian Costello v Warrior match to be released! There’s one from 89 on the first set.

  7. Brad Attitude says:

    After those travesty WWE matches Lawler had, I will NOT be purchasing his latest set.
