With thanks to Silvervision, here’s the trailer for the release of WWE: The Very Best of WCW Monday Nitro DVD.

It will be released in June. If you are in the UK or elsewhere in Europe you can pre-order it now by clicking here.

WrestleMania 27 on DVD and Blu-ray has a number of edits. These have been found so far:

There are a few edits to the Cole-Lawler match, such as cutting out Austin giving Michael Cole the middle finger during his entrance.

Triple H’s entrance to Metallica’s “For Whom The Bell Tolls” has been replaced with an in-house rendition of the theme.

The Undertaker’s entrance to “Ain’t No Grave” by Johnny Cash has been replaced with his usual theme song.

The crowd booing after the choir ends their performance for John Cena’s entrance has been removed.

It’s released tomorrow to the USA and Canada. To see pics of the WM27 Blu-ray click here, or the 2-Disc DVD edition over here. Thanks to Manuel for sending word of the edits.

    They also edited the boos for Snooki during her match. They were LOUD on the live version!

    This is sad. Coming from a fan of the WWE and a costumer from buying the Wrestlemania 27 DVD. Its is the worst to edit or remove memories that we as fans of the WWE universe cherish so much. HHH’s entrance was the only reason I bought this DVD.

  3. Giovanni says:

    WWE has been editing material for years, the oldest i can remember was WWF Unforgiven 1999 VHS (and now Tagged Classics)where they edit the main event promo featuring music by Fear Factory and System of a Down and dubbed it with some generic production music to avoid paying the money.

  4. Chris says:

    Shame about the edits but nice to see that the matchlistings are included on the flap.

  5. Caleb says:

    I agree they take this editing sh** too far

  6. Mac says:

    Glad I recordered WM27 and put it on a dvd myself now.

  7. Anonymous says:

    Damn sucks on the entrance edits, but thats Metallica for you. I really hope they kept hate me now for miz, as it was bad ass

  8. shacmasta says:

    I thought the same thing that a few members already stated, As soon as I heard “For whom the bell tolls” I looked over to my brother and said don’t expect to have this on the dvd. One night stand edited sandman’s entrance at the “one night stand” ppv, so it was fully expected. Metallica must charged a ton for their music rights.

  9. Klaub says:

    That’s really RETARDED. Why would they do that and have it so that it won’t come out like it should on DVD? They don’t usually do that. WWE is losing their fucking minds.

  10. canucks619 says:

    thankfully I downloaded WM 27 and have the unedited version. when I FIRST saw HHH and Takers entrances the first thing I thought was the music would be edited out when released on dvd.

  11. DeadFan37 says:

    That sucks that they cut the cash song.
    It’s cool to use it for promo’s for 26 and in the weeks leading to 27 but we can’t have it on the damn disc? Boooo!

  12. Todd says:

    Is the DMX Prayer before Cena’s match still included

  13. John31 says:

    Damn I’m so freaking Pissed, Why did they have to edit ”For Whom The Bell Tolls”. They remove the best parts from Wrestlemania 27, not worth my money!

  14. CJ says:

    I knew they wouldn’t let the Metallica song on. If you’re not going to put in on the DVD, don’t do it live.

    Same thing for Johnny Cash.

  15. The Angelic One says:

    There’s an idea for a feature on this site, listing all the edits in WWE DVDs. 😉

  16. Dave says:

    Doesn’t surprise me about Metallica, i don’t think WWE ever secured the rights to use their songs on any WWE or even WWF releases. They probably just ask way too much. Same deal with Kid Rock, they even removed his complete segment from WM25 (thank god!).

    Too bad about Taker’s theme, but they played it all the time in his promos and i think was on WM26 last year, but not too sure on that.

    But like another said, is Miz’s promo still there? also they did keep the actual theme song right?

  17. Alan says:

    Why did they change ‘Taker’s theme to a song they don’t have rights to? Surely they should tell Cash’s agency to go fuck themselves and choose another song. Not rocket science.

  18. Efrain says:


  19. MickEiA says:

    I probably knew Triple H’s music would have been cut but why the Undertaker’s it was much better than his usual theme

  20. Bryan says:

    those Edits in WWE WrestleMania 27 are down right pathetic, and total bs! i mean wtf is with editing Taker’s music? surely the WWE can’t be worried about “music rights” when they were using the f’n song for weeks building up to Mania! why not edit the un-needed crap like Cena’s choir and Miz’s stupid video?

  21. Paul says:

    I, like Cody, was at the Hall of Fame and can also confirm that Triple H’s speech was NOT an hour and was more like 30 minutes. So that was not an edit on this set.

    The music being edited is not surprising at all but its still very disappointing. And since I was at the event I didn’t order it on PPV and thus I don’t own a copy of the live unedited event. WWE shouldn’t use music if they are to cheap to pay for the rights to release it on DVD/BD. Such a shame…

  22. Paul says:

    I, like Cody, was at the WWE Hall of Frame

  23. James says:

    WHAT!!! thats stupid i should have kept the recorded/unedited version on my dvd player

  24. Alan says:

    The lack of music rights is annoying, but the other edits are downright insulting. Because of that, I will no longer be purchasing this DVD set.

  25. straightedge47 says:

    I don’t get why people mind so much, none of those are all that bad, Its a shame about the entrance music but It might stil sound okay, They always edit the dvds but few people actually notice

  26. Rob L says:

    All of those edits are rediculous. Someone asked a good question down below… Did the edit the chair shot during HHH/Taker match?

  27. Austin says:

    Was Miz’s video package safe?

  28. Anonymous says:

    Its hard being a fan of something that re-writes history all the time. Its saying we want you to care about this enough to pay for it before we pretend it didnt happen in a few weeks. I can’t think of any other form of sport or entertainment that does that. Its more like a political party. George Orwell could have written a book about them.

  29. I loved Triple H’s entrance music! Aghhhhh

  30. Jeff Copeland says:

    please tell me its not true SERIOUSLY I MEAN REALLY !! ?

  31. Cody says:

    I was at the Hall of Fame and I don’t believe HHH’s was an hour, 30 minutes sounds about right.

  32. brian says:

    so they changed the only good parts of wrestlemania 27?

  33. I suppose it would cost even more for that music if they got the rights for later releases, but its a shame as that is one of the things that makes wrestlemania more special. Don’t know why they edited Cena getting booed, other than to rewrite history again

  34. Banjo says:

    did they edit the chair shot to Undertaker’s dome?

  35. Anonymous says:

    wtf? Somebody is getting a little too edit happy over their..that’s sad

  36. Anonymous says:

    Why bother using the music at all if for the purposes of history it will be as if it never happened anyway? And John Cena’a entrance was beyond weird. There is nothing they wont do to make that man a star. Aaaaaaaand he still gets booed. But then with that entrance who wouldnt.

  37. David T says:

    Dumb, I hate these dumb edits. Come on pay the money. Hopefully ebay or ioffer will have an uncut bootleg version

  38. Isrs4life says:

    Why do they bother with all the Massive good stuff originally shown
    on the PPV and why edit the theme entrances? since they used them
    originally I don’t know why they do this does it cost them money I just
    don’t think it makes since when they first were allowd to.

  39. Well that sucks. Why do they have to change everything?
