WWE History of Hardcore Championship DVD - Crash Holly

WrestlingDVDNetwork.com can now reveal more news on WWE’s Hardcore DVD!

First up, “The History of the Hardcore Championship: 24/7” has now officially been scheduled — the anticipated Home Video release is due to hit the UK and Europe first on September 5th, following just one day later to fans in the United States on September 6th.

This one will be jam-packed with more than 50 different matches and moments, with a total Blu-ray runtime not far off 9 hours! Between some of the content there’s also slated to be documentary-like video packages looking at milestones in the title’s tenure (think 24/7 and WrestleMania X-Seven) and of course its most Hardcore holders (think Steve Blackman and Crash Holly).

The Hardcore Championship was active between 1998 and 2002, thus the new DVD/Blu-ray set will feature matches from those five years. As for what matches WWE has actually chosen to be included, stay tuned because we hear the listing is right around the corner!

  3. Kevin Ngoun says:

    I still have the original WWF Hardcore DVD from when it first released…prob some repeats from that DVD but I enjoyed that DVD alot.

  4. Ryan Johansson says:

    I’m more excited about the Hardcore Blu-Ray than any other upcoming release except maybe Scott Hall.

  5. me says:

    This is going to be so good. Hopefully they show the WCW Hardcore Title as well but if not that’s fine. 50 matches is a banquet of wrestling!

  6. Frank Lloyd says:

    Can’t wait for the hardcore blu Ray. The original wwf hardcore DVD has always been one of my favorites.

  7. Brad Attitude says:

    Looking forward to the hardcore title dvd. I wanna see some Raven vs Rhyno from Backlash 2001. One of the best hardcore matches I’ve ever seen.

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      oh i got both wwf hardcore on vhs and dvd so this could be good. rhino vs raven backlash 01 is with out a dought one of the best hardcore matches.

      2001 was a good year for the hardcore title you had rvd rhino raven THE BIG SHOW!!!! 😛 xD.

      so hopefully this dvd/bluray is good maybe we get steve blackman as the host

      • Paul Timmons says:

        If anyone is hosting the hardcore dvd, it should either be Mick Foley or Bradshaw.

        • Jeff Copeland says:

          lol TEXAS BRADSHAW!!!! i go with mick foley since tazz hosted the last one or maybe mean street posse xD!!!!

          • AD Degreez says:

            Mick foley has to host he was the first champ! Crash holly was the best champ but he made the belt mean something. After him was raven.

            • Jeff Copeland says:

              crash aka MR 24/7!!!! foley was first i would say top 5 hardcore champions for me were Steve Blackman Al Snow Big Boss Man RVD and Rhyno
