    Did I miss something – why is the Owen thing a “mess up”? Might they not have just purposely decided to release the cover variant?

    • Daniel Bee says:

      It may well be a “mess up” or oversight since we know they definitely decided not to release that version to stores last year and it hasn’t been seen ’til now.

      However, sure, WWE or their distributor might have decided recently to get rid of the stock they had on hand if they did.

      As the “new” version was the only one intended to be out there’s a bit of mystique around this original one. After all, when’s the last time the same WWE DVD had two different covers?

  2. Mark Markson says:

    That UK DVD sale looks good paper, but if you live outside the UK, you have to pay £4,10 for shipping. And you also have to pay a fee to PayPal. So you don’t really save that much, to be honest. :-/
