Exclusive: Latest on WWE ‘Greatest Factions’ DVD & Blu-Ray – Official Details

February 3, 2014 by Daniel Bee

nWo Wolfpac - Wrestling Faction

Last month the headline read, “WWE Releasing Greatest Wrestling Factions DVD”. Today we can confirm its go-ahead with some official details.

First up, the working title is “WWE Presents… Wrestling’s Greatest Factions“. This one is scheduled for release on both DVD and Blu-ray formats on May 27th.

The synopsis is exclusively revealed below. It suggests the focus of the DVD will be an extensive match compilation, with a short bio on chosen factions also expected.

For decades, Superstars have sought allies and banded together for strength in numbers. From the Four Horsemen to the n.W.o, DX, The Nexus, The Shield, and everyone in between, factions are as woven into the fabric of sports-entertainment as the rules they tend to ignore. Now, WWE celebrates the biggest, baddest and coolest factions in history.

From those who influenced generations of Superstars to those who just ran roughshod over the competition, this 3-disc DVD/2-disc Blu-ray presents a brief history of the top factions from all eras and collects several of the greatest matches and moments that made each one a household name. Also featuring The Fabulous Freebirds, The Nation of Domination, Evolution, The Heenan Family, Straight Edge Society and much more!

Going off all promotional material for the DVD and Blu-ray that we’ve received to date, the following factions have so far been named:

D-Generation X, Evolution, nWo, The Corporation, The Dangerous Alliance, The Fabulous Freebirds, The Four Horsemen, The Hart Foundation, The Heenan Family, The Ministry of Darkness, The Nation of Domination, The Nexus, The Shield, and The Straight Edge Society.

    SO can not wait for the Factions set… especially with The Corporation & The Ministry of Darkness on there! I am a huge fan of DX, but with as many dvd’s they have had, I just have a feeling it will be a repeat of everything honestly.

  2. Anan says:

    The factions that are named in the description are worthy to be on the set. The Corporation belongs there as they were the most powerful in the sense that the owner, Vince Mcmahon ran it along with Shane. The Ministry should be there. They can talk about how these two merged into the next faction to be covered, The Corporate Ministry.

  3. Erik G. says:

    I wonder how many there will be in total, and if this is a countdown or something else.

    If there is room for more I’d like to see The Oddities. I know they sucked but it was a fun gimmick and a creative way of taking guys with no wrestling ability(except for Tenta), no charisma, no interview skills and making people like them.

  4. AD Degreez says:

    Hope they include ravens flock/nest they were cool

  5. Jordan says:

    They better have the Spirit Squad on there 😉

  6. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    I agree w/ @IMDJLUIS down below. I hope they also include the Legends of Wrestling roundtable Blu-ray extra. One of my favorite episodes from that show. Looking forward to the Greatest Factions set. Million Dollar Corporation, Varsity Club, and so many more great groups need to get some air time on this.

  7. ALK says:

    I guess Straight Edge Society won’t get too much of a mention now, unless they lift interviews from the Punk set… :/

  8. Timothy Thorpe says:

    This is a cool concept. I can’t wait to hear more about it.

  9. SRB says:

    This set, like most planned for this year, has a ton of potential.

  10. KarlKayfabian says:

    I really hope they include The Varsity Club.

  11. motorhead says:

    really, the only match that matters to me is the von erich/freebirds six-man bad street match from july 4, 1984. some of the bloodiest, greatest ten minutes of wrestling this side of philadelphia. never been released on wwe dvd. the texas stadium fritz von erich return was on the triumph and tragedy dvd but that is a sad xerox of the july 4 classic. if that match is one here, the july 4th one, cleaned up and looking great, i’m sold.

  12. Jeff Copeland says:

    really the ses really smh should of put like lwo or something ses sucked

    • Erik G. says:

      I was surprised to see SES on there. Maybe it won’t happen because of Punk leaving. LWO was okay but didn’t live up to its potential. I wouldn’t mind it though.

  13. Roaster says:

    The Nexus and Straight edge society(although I loved Punk during that time) have no business being featured on that factions set. I know it’s to entice the newer audience but the shield being on there is questionable. It would be cool to finally get their TLC 2012 match on bluray though.

    • LP1 says:

      The Shield absolutely belong on there. One of the few factions that have actually been pushed properly and have been successful. They’ve already lasted longer as a faction than The Ministry, The Corporation, The Hart Foundation, The Dangerous Alliance and many others.

      • Jeff Copeland says:

        lol sheild better then harts and minstry lol wow lmao wow

        • LP1 says:

          At what point did I say they were better? Read carefully.

          • LP1 says:

            And based on crowd reactions and success, yes, they were better than The Ministry. The Ministry was just Taker with a bunch of glorified jobbers. They lasted less than 4 months before joining together with the Corporation, won no titles and didn’t beat anyone that mattered. The Shield has been dominant for over a year, won the Tag Team Titles, Ambrose has been one of the longest reigning US Champions in history, they’ve beaten everyone from Cena, Sheamus, Ryback, Bryan, Punk, Kane, Big Show, Taker and the list goes on and on.

      • banzaidrop says:

        exactly. I am pretty sure that no three men stable has ever been booked as strong in the WWE as The Shield have.

  14. @IMDJLUIS says:

    Hopefully the Blu-Ray contains the Legends of Wrestling: Factions episode.
