The Boss and The Hugger are about to get their very own WWE DVDs!
Sasha Banks and Bayley are next up for the “Iconic Matches” series as WWE release individual DVDs on both Superstars, found exclusively in new “Ultimate Fan Pack” box sets like this one:
As we’ve seen in the past, the “Ultimate Fan Packs” bundle together a WWE Superstar action figure, a DVD and some accessories, which is the case here also. The Toys R Us website is listing the new Sasha Banks and Bayley packs as available to fans in the United States this time next week.

Iconic Matches: Roman Reigns DVD
It’s time we had another update on “WWE UNRELEASED 1986-1995”, don’t you think?
We can now show off more of the artwork planned for the packaging of this unprecedented collection that’s set to delve deep into the WWE vault and for the first time ever present 45 never-before-seen matches! Fans in both the UK and the USA can get hold of this one next month.
Aside from the typo (can you spot it?) you can expect to see this artwork on the 3-disc DVD set:
Speaking of new artwork, we showed you the cover art WWE has planned for “Double Feature: Great Balls of Fire & Battleground 2017” and now let’s get a look at what will be on the reverse!
The 2-disc DVD is the next Home Video release on the way, in stores the end of the month.
RAW’s most destructive forces collide for the first time ever when “The Destroyer” Samoa Joe faces “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship. The ongoing rivalry between Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns continues in an Ambulance Match where only one WWE Superstar will walk out on their own and the other will be sent to the hospital. RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss tries to keep her reign alive as she does battle with number one contender Sasha Banks. Plus, more! Goodness gracious… it’s Great Balls of Fire!
In a match that hasn’t been seen in WWE for over a decade, “The Modern-Day Maharaja” Jinder Mahal defends his WWE Championship against “The Viper” Randy Orton in a Punjabi Prison Match. “The New Face of America” Kevin Owens hopes to live up to his moniker against AJ Styles for the United States Championship. The returning John Cena puts America on his back against Bulgaria’s Rusev in a Flag Match. And the next contender for Naomi’s SmackDown Women’s Championship will be decided in a Fatal 5-Way Elimination Match. The Superstars of SmackDown Live put it all on the line at Battleground.

I know they share a title, but it is known for sure whether those Iconic match DVDs will be the same ones that come with the figures?
Yep, they’re the same alright. Checked YouTube vids of the 3 discs and they match the content found in the fan packs that I’ve seen at places like Big Lots.
Just wondering if the Unreleased 86-95 set is like The Attitude Unreleased with no commentary and limited camera angles, liked matches of Attitude but just lacked polish and at times was annoying, but cannot have everything I guess.
No commentary last we heard…
But the matches are ones that were professionally shot, as far as I know. Betting the majority are anyway. Footage in the trailer seems to back that up.
Any hidden extras for this set?
Why don’t you pick it up, find out and tell us yourself.
Also I want those ICONIC match dvds. I’m an avid collector. I refuse to buy a toy in order to purchase the dvd. I mean seriously I am not 10 YEARS old. I’m 26. Love love that the 3 iconic match dvds of Fin Balor,John Cena,and Roman Reigns are coming out individually. I hope that they do the same for these. Really want all 5 ICONIC match dvds.
I’m sorry if this is offensive, but do they not have garbage cans where you live? I mean, just throw the toy away if you only want the DVD. Sheesh!
I personally don’t understand would want a 3-match DVD occupying space on their shelf. I’ll just wait for the 3-disc sets at a later date.
That’s the thing….these are made for kids so they can become wrestling fans. Just buy the figure and keep the dvd and give the toys to somebody with kids.
Realty? ‘Cause I would prefer they used the majority of space on the disc and gave us way more than 3 matches. Or at least some extras outside of the 3 matches. I’d have thought somebody who is “not a 10 year old” would demand more out of his product.
Because 10 year olds are the ones who pay LARGE sums of money for OOP WWE figs, right?
Did you buy the macho man ultimate fan pack
Well the back says 85-96 and that’s obviously incorrect but wasn’t Hogan on the original cover?? If they really leave his picture off the DVD I think it’s a disgrace. He’s the biggest star of most of that era,at least up until 1990 maybe 1991 and they aint gonna have at least a small pic of him on the front or back of this set?? I know he said a bad word but this whole thing with Hogan is beyond ridiculous. WWE needs to get over it already. If there isn’t one dam pic of him on this set when it comes out its flat out wrong.
He is on the dvd set that’s enough period.
For the record WWE did offer up a return to Hogan but he declined. He doesn’t need the $$$ and after the way they treated him,can anyone blame Hogan for saying “Nah”? His status as the biggest star in wrestling history is unquestioned and doesn’t need WWE anymore.
Incorrect. He didn’t turn them down. He was going around telling people that he was hoping to be back by Mania in Orando this year. WWE was going to bring him back, but decided against it due to the sponsors.
What do you mean the “original” back cover? This is the first time we’ve seen the back cover. And not just a “bad word”, one of the very worst. And even worse was the context in which he said it. It wasn’t just an off the cuff joke, but irrefutable racism.
He was on the original front cover pictured on this site when it became available and as far as irrefutable racism goes Vince McMahon and the WWE have taken the whole issue way to far. I’m not saying it wasn’t wrong what he did but I’m pretty dam sure Hogan isn’t the only wrestler to mutter that word and be caught saying it. I’m positive he’s not in the context it was said in or not. The WWE has taken the whole thing far enough and it’s time to forgive and let it go already. He’s Hulk Hogan for Christ sakes one of the biggest wrestling stars ever it’s unreal in my opinion that this is still an issue with the WWE. Far worse things have been said and done and been forgiven.
He was never on the original front cover, Brandon:
I agree he should probably be shown somewhere.
I could have sworn there was a small pic of him on there. I stand corrected.
WWE would bring him back right now if it was up to them. It’s the sponsors that are the issue. If they bring him back and then a few of their sponsors gets upset about him being there, WWE will be in a position where they have no choice, but to get rid of him again. They’re slowly starting to integrate him back into the fold by adding his matches on DVDs and including him in commercials on the Network.
As far as the sponsors go they can go to hell too.It’s Vinces sponsors that are the reason for the WWE being so PG now and for the product not being anywhere near as good as it used to be. God forbid you piss off the sponsors.it’s such a joke.
Oh yeah, we all forgot you are the insider at WWE. Thanks for sharing the company sentiment with all of us!
Oh stop, it wasn’t racism. If was a depressed, pissed off, drunk old dude about to lose his marriage. You social justice warriors are hilarious.
Agreed it’s not like anybody else hasn’t said that word before and the fact it was taken so far by WWE makes it even more ridiculous. Pretty sure Vince and his father said that word once or twice in their life.
I guess they really are still afraid to show Hogan.
That’s a big typo error. The people who produce DVDs and blurays nowadays really need to double check everything as this isn’t the first time a finished product has come out with noticeable errors.
Once this comes out they legally have to change the title to “Released: Seen Before Matches” on future printings since, obviously, they’re not unreleased anymore. I imagine they’ll fix the typo on that version.
If you’re serious, then I need to explain that it can always say “Unreleased” on this product, since it is the first product to ever contain the content. If you were joking, well…haha, what a thigh-slapper.
That’s actually incorrect. I’m currently at college for DVD Law and it’s a pretty open shut case of false advertising if you call stuff unreleased after it’s already been released.
But they’re not calling it “Unreleased” AFTER it’s released. They’re calling it “Unreleased” AT THE TIME that it is released. The fact that it continues to be produced is irrelevant. It’s going off the fact that it was “Unreleased” prior to the release date. If the matches were then re-released on another set, then you couldn’t say it. This ain’t rocket science.
you are aware you are just feeding that person, right?
The years are mixed up on the box art…will it be 1985-1996 or 1986-1995 content-wise? I’m guessing the former but hoping WWE Home Video is aware of this error and will attend to this ASAP.
Dammit, I want those packs, though the figs are godawful.
The back says 1985-1996
Not just once, but twice.
Thanks for clearing that up, Sherlock
Hey look, it’s someone trying to start an argument. Nice try.
Well, you responded so victory is mine!
