With Night of Champions 2015 out earlier this week, the next WWE DVDs incoming are the November releases, topped by “Undertaker: The Streak 21-1 (R.I.P Edition)”.
As we’ve recently reported, the UK version will come housed in an outer cardboard box which features a perspex window to see through to the limited edition wooden coffin inside.
Below is an updated, exclusive first look at the finalized box set!
WrestlingDVDNetwork.com has also just learned some more details on what WrestleMania matches are and aren’t edited across the 5 disc DVD set, so here goes…
The Johnny Cash and Metallica songs used for the two intros at WM27 are still NOT in.
The Big Boss Man “hanging” at WM15 is also still NOT in.
However, on a positive note, Undertaker’s theme by Limp Bizkit (“Rollin'”) looks to be back in and the earlier matches from the “Attitude Era” are now in without blurring to the “scratch” logo!

There is no mention of Memory Remains being edited out of WM28. If that’s the case, why wouldn’t they pay for Bells too?
‘The Memory Remains’ was included on the original blu-ray release of Mania 28, so most likely it won’t be edited on this one. My best guess for why that song was paid for and ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls’ wasn’t is because they only used a short clip of ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls’. Also ‘The Memory Remains’ was a big part of the build up, including the hype video and the intro to the match itself. They paid for the rights up front. If I remember right, ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls’ was a last minute deal put together for HHH’s entrance and it wasn’t an intricate part of the story like ‘The Memory Remains Was’.
I am actually so happy to have to eat my words after “guaranteeing” that Rollin’ would be edited on previous posts. :). Shows you truly anything can happen!
no Blu-ray in 2015? WWE should really start making VHS tapes again
No Cash and Metallica for WM 27? I guess I’ll buy it and keep it sealed then.
I am passing on the Undertaker set, I am happy with the 20-0 streak Blu-Ray and I wonder how the discs are going to fit in the coffin?
The discs are held in the inside purple lining of the coffin when you open it out, by the looks of things.
I bet people are pissed that this isn’t on Blu-ray.
Oh yes I am pissed. Why no release on VHS?
Exactly. WWE still releasing DVDs-only is a joke. They might as well put it out on VHS, Beta and laserdisc as well.
If enough people were buying the Blu-Ray’s they would. You need to levy the blame at the correct target.
Not sure I quite get the VHS joke/argument people have because the VHS jump to DVD was a greater one than DVD to Blu-ray. It’s still content on a disc even if you get the obvious picture and audio upgrade.
VHS wasn’t a disc and we know the flaws that came with the format. I would also venture to say VHS sales died out a lot quicker than DVD sales have. Companies like WWE must still be selling units for it to continue.
I’ve said the same before when I see this VHS/Blu-ray topic but I guess these debates will continue to crop up after 5 years of WDN!
I’m still an avid buyer of the dvd format, just because technology keeps coming up with new things (like blu-Ray) does not mean it’s better….All this tech will ultimately be the downfall of humanity & people are too stupid to realize it.
Turn out the light on all social network medias, just for ffs, let WDN stay alive!
The difference with DVDs replacing VHS compared to blu-rays replacing DVDs is that when DVDs were created in 1997 there was no such thing as HD yet.
The big upside to switching from VHS to DVD is you no longer had to worry about VHS tape quality deteriorating over time. DVDs would keep the same quality. However, with commercial VHS and commercial DVDs, the difference in the quality of the video was very minimal. Whereas the quality difference between DVDs and blu-rays today is night and day.
With the advent of movies and TV shows switching to HD in the mid 2000s, it changed the way people watch TV. Back in the late 90s it was fine to watch a major motion picture or WWF show on DVD because back then everything was shot in 480i. Today watching a movie or WWE show that is recorded in 1080p HD on DVD lookala terrible and it’a not the way it should be presented.
That’s why I made the comment that WWE might as well release today’s shows on VHS, Beta and Laserdisc because watching an HD recorded show on DVD is not much different than watching it on those older formats.
With all that said, this whole conversation will most likely be pointless in a couple of years because it looks more and more like digital media will be replacing physical media.
I know some people won’t want to hear that, but if you’ve been paying attention to where things are headed, with subscription sites like Netflix, Hulu, WWE Network, etc. and direct purchase apps like Vudu and Amazon Prime, where you can outright own a digitial copy of something instead of renting it, it looks like the next big thing following blu-ray is digital.
I understand why they can’t use those songs, so it doesn’t bother me.
So they’ll pay for the rights to use “The Memory Remains”, but not for “Whom The Bell Tolls”? Okay…
a Biggie.. uuuuuuh.. “True Giants: the lost Big Foot footages!” would’nt mind that. 😉
kind of figured that out with the Undertaker set, regarding Cash and Metallica.. the Rollin song included is of course good, but has’nt really the huge importance in storytelling that the other songs had.
Again, the Boss man hanging is so huge a part of the story for the Deadman’s charachter as leader of the Ministry of Darkness, and besides that, it’s the only great thing bout the match anyway.
Good enough with the removal of the blurring, but really for me the blurring has never been the main concern.
I can only speculate in, how well this will sell.. you would think, that by now, if this was a Bluray version and had the original important storybased angles aforementioned back in it, if this by now would have been long sold out already?
I think it’s just the “hanging” imagery. In this day and age and after so many wrestling deaths (including Ray Traylor’s), I kinda get why it’s not in. I wish it was, but you can’t have it all.
why is it then on the Network, where many more have access to see that “hangning”?
They are portraiting charachters.. I’m so sick and tired of this reality-tv bs way WWE is taken.. scared to offend instead of treating it how they used to: entertainment, that takes it over the edge, to be different.
I seriously can not tell the different from the product of today to all the other reality-tv series that are over flooding the cable and internet broadcasts, only that they do boring repeatively 6-man “wrestling” matches now or then.. (I think I counted 4 at RAW this Monday, 5 if you include the Barbies-match where each side had backup with them…very innovative and fresh…not!)
Tell me about it. WTF is up with all the 6 man matches. Why do they think the whole roster has to appear on Raw every week. Use some of them on Smackdown. I don’t need to see some of them twice a week.
The big problem is that 3rd hour of Raw. It’s a killer. It’s not that they want to have every guy appear on the show every week, they have no choice. If they wanna fill 3 hours then they’re gonna need everybody. The roster is so thin right now and that 3rd hour doesn’t make it any easier. The best thing for the long term health of Raw is to drop the 3rd hour. It’s overkill.
