April 2, 2013 by Daniel Bee

Here is the synopsis for the new WWE PPV, “Payback”.

WWE Payback PPV Logo

WWE reinvigorates its pay-per-view line up with a fresh new concept that will serve as the perfect stage for all the top Superstars to settle their long simmering grudges and set the stage for the sizzling road to SummerSlam. All major championships will be on the line including the revamped WWE Championship, plus the World Heavyweight Championship and much more. From the clashes for the ultimate prize, to fierce heavy-hitters with scores to settle, WWE fans will want to relive the historic debut of this riveting new event.

The Payback DVD will be released July 16th, two weeks before ECW Unreleased Vol. 2.

Upcoming WWE DVD Release Dates.

Jim Ross confirmed the go ahead of the Mid-South Wrestling DVD via his Twitter account at the weekend. As of last word, it’s down on WWE’s schedule for September 10th release.

Also, over on JR’s blog – JRsBarBQ.com, he addressed fan queries about whether or not WWE will produce a Jim Ross DVD in the future.

WWE has never discussed doing a JR DVD featuring my favorite matches and updated interviews with many of the stars involved but that’s not to say that it won’t or can’t happen some day. Might be a nice idea for WWE.com visitors and fans to vote and select their choices.

Reader “WrestlingMachine28” sent word that K-Mart stores have new deals on selected WWE DVD double packs, like the one pictured below for $9.99.

    These new TNA DVDs, Final Resolution and Genesis look amazing! From what I’ve read Clear Vision are doing their own sleeves.

  2. alvaro says:

    Any word if daniel bryan has cut the beard yet following the heat it got for looking like the theater shooter james holmes.

    • LP1 says:

      Are you trying to see how many times you can post about this subject? No he didn’t shave his beard off. And there’s no heat on him because he had that beard well over a year ago while this shooter guy just appeared in the media recently with the beard.

  3. wrestlingfan says:

    I love the new TNA dvds and I hope for a great Mid South Documentary. It is about time.

  4. Tommy B says:

    That Genesis cover is absolutely amazing!

  5. cmvag says:

    This TNA cover is sick! Thank God Clearvision signed with TNA so we’re gonna have wrestling DVDs with low prices& FREE shipping around, because wwedvd.co.uk have higher prices than SV, no free shipping and sometimes broken cases etc.

  6. Claude says:

    It would nice to get info on when TNAWRESTLING.COM will be releasing new DVD’s..The UK dates don’t help us in the USA much.

    • David says:

      I agree. Seems like they’re releasing them randomly.

      Turning Point 2012 and Final Resolution 2012 was put on ShopTNA couple weeks ago. Genesis will probably be out in a month or so.

      Also noticed Amazon UK has a “sign up to be notified” for One Night Only: X-Travaganza, so looks like they will be releasing the One Night Only events on DVD too.

      I read a year or so ago that TNA was preparing to release their first Blu-ray, hopefully they will still go through with that.

    • Kane's Mother says:

      I hope they put out another Sting DVD where all they can legally show is one photograph of Sting over and over while he tells a ten minute story.

  7. Ryan says:

    Can’t wait for the Mid-South dvd. I don’t care that much about the matches as I have almost every season. Just looking forward to the doc portion.

    • Kane's Mother says:

      Who says there’s a doc? i wouldn’t be shocked if it was stories and matches. I’m kinda sick of rise and fall stories anyway. id kinda rather them just have guys like dibiasie and hacksaw share some old memories

  8. t says:

    I hope they drop the name “Payback” and bring back some of the older names. No Mercy and No Way Out are famous for GREAT matches.

  9. Jarrett says:

    I don’t know who is designing these new TNA DVD covers, but TNA needs to hire them quick! That Genesis cover is incredible!

    • LP1 says:

      If the guy is making their DVD covers, call me crazy, but I think they already hired him.

      • Jarrett says:

        Whoever made that cover is only doing them is doing them for the UK releases, I meant that TNA should hire them for their Pay-Per-View posters.

  10. Peter Fletcher says:

    Isn’t that new PPV exactly like all other PPVs?

    • LP1 says:

      Yes it is. Apparently “Payback” is a much more catchy name than “No Way Out”. At least to whoever decides what to name these shows. In reality it doesn’t make the slightest bit of difference what they name it. Unless its one of the Big 4 ppvs or a gimmick ppv like Elimination Chamber or Money In The Bank, then the name doesn’t matter. Payback, Over The Limit, No Way Out, No Mercy, Unforgiven and many other generic phrases that are used for PPV names dont mean a thing when it comes to PPV buys.

    • t says:

      I think so, too. I would have liked better if they had sticked with their original 12 PPVs incl. KOR, WM, RR, SS, SuSe, Backlash, No Mercy, Judgment Day, Armageddon, No Way Out, Unforgiven
      and either Fully Loaded or Vengeance. These PPVs – not pointless gimmick PPVs – could have been around forever. But WWE preferred to break with this history like they broke with the Undisputed and World title or Kane’s RR streak.

      • Mr Z says:

        Personally I hope they keep changing June. Every other month stays the same but June. June has gone from The Great American Bash, to simply The Bash, to Fatal Fourway, to Capitol Punishment, to No Way Out, and now to Payback. Make a June tradition of new names.
