Over the weekend more than 100 WWE DVDs were pulled from Amazon.com.
Ken McCarty, Javier Roman and several other WDN readers alerted us.
The DVD and Blu-ray titles were then replaced with pre-order listings for January 1st, 2015. Therefore any new orders of those particular WWE DVDs would not ship out until the new year. Among them were major titles such as WrestleMania 30 and Paul Heyman, in addition to some of the most recent releases such as Brothers of Destruction.
Over the past few months we’ve heard rumblings of WWE partnering with a new Home Video distributor. It is our understanding that the deal with this new distributor will come into effect in January 2015 and therefore we speculate that WWE is having some of the more major past DVD/Blu-ray releases re-printed in time for then, explaining the change on Amazon.
It might also explain why a large number of DVD titles were taken out-of-print as of late. In the past 2 months alone we reported about 70 titles removed from production in the US.
As of right now, the apparent “re-releases” are the only WWE DVDs confirmed for 2015.
Officially released today to fans in the UK and Europe is SummerSlam 2014 on DVD and Blu-ray formats. UK fans can get hold of a copy from £12.99, here at WWEDVD.co.uk.
Below is the SummerSlam trailer and a photo, with thanks to Steve Kenworthy.
