Legends of Mid-South Wrestling is released by WWE tomorrow!
You can get your copy of the highly anticipated DVD for $20.96 at this link, or the Blu-ray edition (pictured above and below) with 2 hours of extra content for $22.99 at this link.
If you’re still wondering what’s on there, you’ll get around 20 Mid-South/UWF era matches and moments, along with stories and interview pieces between content featured. There are new comments from a long list of revered wrestling personalties including the likes of Bill Watts, Jake Roberts, Jim Duggan, Jim Ross, Shawn Michaels, and Ted DiBiase.
Today, The Best of WWE at Madison Square Garden is released to the UK and Europe. That’s followed by the release of Legends of Mid-South Wrestling to the region next Monday. You can order either of those now over at WWEDVD.co.uk.
Another two WWE DVDs look to have gone out-of-print now in the US. Those being ECW: Extreme Rules [2 Disc] (UPC 651191945825) and Cyber Sunday 2008 (UPC 651191946839). To clarify, this means the titles will have no more copies produced but does not mean they will suddenly be pulled from shelves or unavailable to buy.

Yesterday we gave details of the new WWE DVD ‘Rumbler’ packs available at Walmart and named 15 of them spotted in stores. One more is included – The Best of WCW Clash of the Champions. Thanks to “xage”, Chris Harmon, and Dan Mader for the photos below.
SummerSlam 2013 is officially released on DVD and Blu-ray next week. There are new T-Shirt packages now available to buy here on WWEShop.com.
The two local Wal-Marts in my area have already pulled ALL Rumbler/DVD packs saying they were a 2-week display only and they have all been sent back. I was quite disappointed since I was waiting to get my paycheck. Oh well.
Ok, i’ve been to five walmarts in two states and STILL can’t find these rumbler sets. I could care less about the toys, the sets are cheap compared to other retailers, i just want the discs. WHERE IN THE HELL ARE YOU PEOPLE FINDING THESE THINGS?! I could use all the help i can get seeing as these sets SEEM to in-stor only exclusives. Thanks!
Do you know why some of these DVDs are randomly going out of print? Also, the Summerslam package looks cool.
Just looks like mostly old ones. May not be financially viable to keep producing titles that don’t sell too well given their age. Something like that.
I’m actually surprised that some of the 2002 ones were still in print until recently – Summerslam, Unforgiven, No Mercy, Armageddon. Looks like prices for those BRAND NEW have skyrocketed on Amazon marketplace, except Armageddon.
King of the Ring 2002 – $40
Summerslam 2002 – $119
Unforgiven 2002 – $55
No Mercy 2002 – $119
Survivor Series 2002 – $80
Amazon goes both ways, you can get stuff cheaper than ebay, but then again you have people listing outrageous prices just to see if they get it.
I agree with that, but in most cases the sellers do get what they ask especially with exclusives and “rare” DVDs/Blu-rays. I saw the Money in the Bank 2013 Blu-ray go for over $50 the first couple weeks of release. I guess people are just not patient to wait til stock arrives at Best Buy and/or Walmart and pay $15-$20.
Here in Canada we still have No Holds Barred available at HMV but it was
in an “extreme value pack” with Hulk Hogan unreleased collecters series
well I payed 20 bucks when I saw it and it was the only copy at the time and
in good condition but I went back to HMV last week this was a month ago maybe and
I saw another copy of the same extreme value pack that was also good.
I dont have a photo of it thow
This type of item could be rare in Freddy, we dont usually get stuff like this all thow
I seen a Rock and Cena one but it was a cheapa$s version of a set that I got in the
states with Cena and Rocks previous 3-Disk dvd sets that I bought last year that
I proudly own.
I’m slightly unclear on the Rumbler sets. When you open up that box, is the standard set and casing in there along with the toy? Or is THAT the only box ? I have minor OCD with uniformity in my collection.
Well i would guess that the original DVD set will be inside the box with the figure. It’s just a window design for the toy.
Mr Disc, if you are an OCD – make sure you dont open a rare Rumbler/DVD similar to that image with XAGE signature above. I think that is the “only” rumbler/DVD set I saw from the posted images that has the wrestler (John Cena) associated with the DVD set (he is one of the selected 50 greatest superstar set). I dont get it how Kofi Kingston be placed in WCW DVD set where he did not even stepped foot in WCW 🙁
I’m surprised the WWE films – especially No Holds Barred are OOP already…i guess they produced enough for stores to carry.
As for the PPVs and compilations I’m sure if people wanted those they would have bought them. Honestly, who doesn’t have the Ultimate Ric Flair Collection by now?!
At least they don’t go OOP like ROH…once they’re out of stock, 95% of the time those titles are OOP. Look at some titles from 2002-2008 on ebay…just crazy prices.
I would put my money on it being the fact that nobody really wants No Holds Barred. Fremantle are releasing the Blu-ray in October. Can’t see it sell very well to be honest
I would love to get No Holds Barred on blu ray. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like it’s coming out in the US, and judging from the cover, the UK release is just an up conversion of the dvd, which I already have.
Would be nice if it had bonus features (like maybe the tie in feud). Oh well, at least I have a way to watch it as is.
Yeah, it would have been nice if they included the Cage match with Hogan/Beefcake vs. Savage/Zeus like “The Match/The Movie” PPV that aired.
The WWE Films are being shown on TV now so there’s no reason to buy them. The movies that have been shown on TV include Knucklehead, Inside Out, The Chaperone, That’s Who I Am, Legendary, Inside Out, No Holds Barred and Bending The Rules.
This is just WWE’s way to suck people into buying the DVD sets that every WWE DVD collector already owns again. Seems like they’re only Region 1 sets anyway so us in the UK wont be tempted.
In this day and age playing a Region 1 DVD in the UK is no big feat, but if you’re buying these sets for the ‘exclusive’ factor of having a figure inside who cares about playing them anyway. Lol. 🙂
Unless you play your DVD’s in a Blu-Ray player cause there is no Region hack.What i meant was is that they’re only available in America it seems.
Yeah unlikely to see a UK release. There’s always importing but not gonna be easy getting all 16 of them.
Going to my bank this afternoon to take out a personal loan for the Rumbler sets. I already have those sets, but the figures are worth it!
It is “WORTHLESS” if the figure is “NOT” associated with the DVD set.
Seriously? Jack Swagger worth being inside a CM Punk DVD Set (shown above) 🙁
Disagree. Not worthless to me. I just picked up a Rey Mysterio figure at the bottom of my Hogan cereal. Beat that Brother!
By general, it is worthless given that (and the posted images above can tell). Most of the boxsets comes with “Nothing To Do”, “Not Equal” ,”Nonsense” Rumbler/DVD Set combination.
With the exception of that John Cena Rumbler in 50 most greates DVD set thats very catchy to a collector’s eyesight.
I sure hope you are kidding about getting a loan to buy DVDs.
If I can find those Rumbler DVD sets I’m going to purchase all of them in one trip. I have a feeling they will be rare down the road.
How I see from the posted images yesterday and today – the RARE ones are those Rumbler Figures associated with the corresponding DVD set. Its pretty common for Rumbler figures that are NOT associated with the DVD set (Really? Great Khali in Bret Hart/Shawn Michaels DVD Set shown above??).
WM24 Blu Ray still being sold here in Gibraltar for £29.99. Picked it up today 🙂
