Last month’s imminent reveal of a “major” WWE DVD on the 2017 Home Video schedule turned out to be one that will filled with entirely never-before-seen footage:
NEXT UP FOR 2017: WWE “Unseen Matches” DVD Collection Hosted by Sean Mooney – First Details!
The working title we have right now for the compilation is “WWE Unreleased: 1986-1995” which the company has previously listed on fan surveys. As you know, there will be two hosts for this one – WWE personality Charly Caruso and a returning Sean Mooney!
A source in the know gave us this little hint on the match selections this week:
The matches selected feature some of the biggest stars of the day, during that period, and a few surprises.
While Sean Mooney himself commented on the project in a recent tweet:
Even I can’t wait to see it. The crew putting it together did a tremendous amount of research. #GreatMatches #WWE #LegacyCrew

I can’t quite believe they are naming a PPV this.
Here we go, proves my point, you are moaning about a brand new name for a PPV coming up in July, stop it
I love the new PPV name because I’ll be entertained as hell with everyone having to plug this over & over for weeks from the announcers to superstars keeping a straight face the entire time. Plus this is Brock’s first title defense meaning Heyman has to cut promos about this makes it even sweeter. An enjoyable trainwreck.
I wish July 31st would come around quickly
Why isn’t Amazon US carrying new release WWE dvds now days? U go to pre order and it says unavailable.it said the same thing when I tried to order ddp and elimination chamber/fast lane set.i ended up going to Walmart to get them.my Walmart doesn’t carry wwe Blu-ray though and a John cena fathead doesn’t intrigue me at all.
I’d like to know the answer to that myself. If this keeps up any longer, I’d tell them to take a hike and go elsewhere.
Did a review of the Wrestlemania 33 DVD on my channel. Matthew Tremble
I will be watching your review of the WrestleMania 33 DVD on your youtube channel @MatthewTremble
I don’t see the wrestling connection at all in the name Great Balls Of Fire. Even Bragging Rights, one of the worst PPV names, still had a wrestling connection with either Raw or SmackDown getting bragging rights for winning the elimination match. I can’t think of any other WWE PPV in history where the name had no wrestling connection whatsoever. Unless there’s going to be a match where actual balls of fire are shot down from the ceiling and the wrestlers have to avoid them while trying to win their matches.
“…Pokemon Goooo…” -lol-
Point taken LP1. The only connection I see is wrestling with the concept of the name itself (snaps into a slim jim). Ooh Yeaa!
I like your reply their that is great
How do we know that Balls Mahoney isn’t coming back for a big inferno match?
You realize Balls Mahoney passed away right?
Undertaker and Kane die all the time and they still come back and have matches
@LP1 stop your complaining about every PPV name including the new PPV for July which is Great Balls Of Fire
I complain about every PPV name? That’s news to me. Which other names have I complained about recently? I’d love to hear more of this BS you just made up.
Why does Thomas always include the full name of any DVD or PPV he’s talking about, like including the WWE part, etc.
Because I am entitled to have my honest opinion of it RabidHeat, I am also entitled to have my honest opinion / review on the artwork for any WWE PPV DVD
It is not BS that I just made up, I speak my mind every time I see you complaining about the artwork or how long it is or about a new name to a PPV, take the last review you just wrote, that is a prime example that you have just made which I saw, so it is not BS that I made, it is the truth that I speak not a bunch of BS
Actually it is BS. You specifically said I complain about every PPV name. Now unless can you name some other PPV names I’ve complained about recently then it’s just BS that you made up.
No I haven’t made all of this BS up at all, so you are complaining about the artwork for WWE WrestleMania 33 DVD set
First off I didn’t about the Mania 33 artwork. I complained about the pre-show matches not being included. And second, that’s not a complaint about the name!
Also you are complaining about the new PPV name for July as well
Really? I asked you to name another PPV name that I supposedly complained about and you respond with the same exact PPV? Lol
The name does suck though. You do realize the wrestlers are going to have to say “Great balls of fire” during promos with a straight face. SmackDown roster dodged a bullet.
Problaly gonna have some sort of Pokemon theme to it.. main event: The GoldenTruth using the Great Balls of Fire to try get the tag team belts from the Broken Brothers…
But in the last minute…here comes King Maxel sitting on Vanguard 1 to save the day.
I think with the name “Great Balls of Fire” WWE is trying to draw in casual wrestling fans through familiarity.
It’d be fun to kick off the first GBOF with an appearance from the Rock. An inferno match would be fitting on the card.
Excited for the match listing for Kurt Angle and the Unseen and unreleased DVD
So the kurt angle dvd is not being released in August anymore? July release now?
Nevermind that’s his schedule
Any news on United States releases for Unreleased and the GBOF DVD set
Wonder how the Jerry Lee Lewis Estate will be reacting to WWE utilizing one of his songs and titles for a PPV?
With that PPV name, WWE has to use that song as the theme. Anything else will be ridiculous.
Name fits better todays product, than the original intended return of Bad Blood…that concept absolutely does not belong in this Total Divas era we’re stuck in.
Still.. Great Balls of Fire as a title for a WWE ppv is a hands down insult to one of the greatest rock ‘ roll songs ever been produced.
Great Balls of Fire?
If September 4 is the UK release when should the US release be? Week before?
Whoever decided that Great Balls of Fire was a good idea for a PPV name deserves a spot on the list.
Great Balls of Fire has to be one of the worst, if not the worst PPV name of all time, LOL. I’d rather have them use PPV names like Vengeance and Unforgiven again.
I can’t believe they are going with that pay per view name,I would believe it if wcw was still around,I mean being back the title like fully loaded for July,at least that had some meaning of anticipation,can you imagine hogan getting fired up for a promo for great balls of fire,
“Watcha gonna’ do when ‘Great Balls of Fire’ run wild on you”!!!
Remember SD has a PPV on 9/10/17 dont count ur chickens b4 they hatch
There is still hope, that they bring back some of the older PPV names.
I wonder if Clash of Champions will return this year? I just think they should go back to the Night of Champions name, and have it be a PPV where both brands are represented. And then maybe have NXT title matches on the kick off show.
“Great Balls of Fire” – that name is such a joke.
regarding the releases, I will likely get all the specials. love Owens and both the Angle and “Unreleased” sets are sd footage anyway (unlike the majority of the Rollins set, which I still think is stupid to not be a bluray release as well).
