It was recently speculated that WWE’s Mid-South Wrestling DVD in the works for September may include a documentary feature. Jim Ross made it known that WWE conducted various interviews with talents associated with Mid-South over WrestleMania weekend.

However, JR has since followed up on these comments during a Q&A and stated that while there will be historical pieces included on the set, there won’t be a documentary included.

Thanks to William Slack for passing along that update.

WWEDVDNews was in attendance at a Smackdown live event in the UK this past weekend. Shout out to those fans who spotted the sign!

We’ve been hunting eBay and found these noteworthy WWF/WWE DVD auctions ending in the next few days. Check ’em out, they might interest you.

WWF WrestleMania 17 DVD – $30 high bid with only a day or two remaining. Many other copies sold lately for $100+ so worth keeping an eye on this.

8 WWE DVD Lot – This includes 3 WrestleManias and other recent titles like the Raw 100 Moments DVD. Many brand new. Not bad for $43.

Judgment Day 2002 DVD – Canadian version of this rare DVD but worth a shot at this price if you can never find this particular event.

13 Wrestling DVD Lot – Currently $10.99 and 3 of them are out of print WWF titles!

SummerSlam Complete Anthology – New condition and $55 bid makes this worth a look.

3 WWE Blu-ray Lot – CM Punk and Brock Lesnar sets, $10.52, say no more.

    come on no mid south documentary no new rise and fall thing come on!!!

  2. David says:

    I am just going to add that in store this seems to be YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary). My store didn’t have this deal, and I don’t know if we will be getting it. This is a bit of a surprise as usually Best Buy has a big set of WWE-related DVD and Blu Ray deals around this time of year.

    That said, does have them at the aforementioned prices.

    • Jay F says:

      True. My local BB has a very limited wrestling section. Sometimes I can’t even find new releases on the release day

  3. Brad Attitude says:

    all those $9.99 blurays sucked. wrestlemania 25-27 were boring.

    • David says:

      I wouldn’t go that far. For 10 (5 with trade and save) dollars, that’s a fairly decent deal for the Wrestlemanias which are about 20 to 25 when first released.

      WM 25 had the excellent HBK Vs Undertaker match, with WM 26 being a nice follow-up and closure for HBK’s career.

  4. Anonymous says:

    I’m glad there’s no Mid-South documentary. That means more time for matches without the needless revisionist history. Don’t get me wrong, a 60 minute or so well-done documentary can be entertaining, but if it goes longer than that, I get sleepy. Furthermore, the selling point is memories the promotion provided from the matches and angles, not comments from CM Punk.

    When are they finally going to release a Jim Crockett Promotions set?

  5. Marcio says:

    I know this is off topic but what do you think about survivor series anthologies 1&2 brand new for 56$? I know they are listed on wwe shop for 39.99 each. Should i snag them or pass on it?

  6. Bandit says:

    If you want to save on those $9.99 Blu-Rays – bring in a DVD and you will get a $5.00 off coupon to use on any Blu-Ray in the store – priced at $9.99 or more. So each one of those Blu-Rays will cost you $4.99. You are limit five coupons per visit and the DVDs you trade in most be non-porn and must be in an evenlope/case. If you have one of those dollar stores around that sells DVDs, stop in there and pick some up, they will accept those. This deal lasts until May 11. Unfortunately the Wrestlemania 29 Blu-Ray comes out after so you won’t be able to save $5.00 on that one but you will be able to save $5.00 on the In Your House Blu-Ray which comes out next Tuesday – price should be $17.99 after coupon.

    As for myself, definiately interested in Wrestlemania 25 and the Best PPV Matches one.

  7. Mark D says:

    If your disappointed that there isn’t a documentary on the Mid-South DVD, there is one way which you can make WWE release one… buy the DVD and show them there is lots of intrest in Mid-South and the UWF.

    Anyway it could still be very good if they have mini-documentaries introducing the matches and providing background to the feud. Lets not pass it over before we’ve more information.

  8. R&REXPRESS#1 says:

    Very disappointed that there will be no doc on the mid south DVD….still a sure buy personally though….I’m hoping for an official match list pretty soon.

  9. J says:

    BITCH BITCH BITCH WWE screws us again Oh STFU

  10. THOMAS says:

    Thank you! Will be getting the new updated artwork of WrestleMania XXIX at all?

  11. THOMAS says:

    Well hopefully will get the updated new artwork of WrestleMania XXIX

  12. Ryan says:

    Very disappointed about no Mid-South doc. I guess that’s a pass now. As all the matches most likey have already been released on DVD by Universal Wrestling Archives, which I have.

    WWE screws us fans again. This is really getting old.

  13. THOMAS says:

    Only seen some of WCW matches, not all of them, also wondering whether to buy the Best Of WCW Monday Nitro Vol 2 for a friend of mine

  14. Mark says:

    They did a documentary on AWA and World Class, but not Mid-South? Mid-South was the precursor to ECW and launched the careers of most of the guys who would make up the WWE roster in the late 80’s and early 90’s… Makes no sense…

    • Kane's Mother says:

      I’m sure there’s a logical reason. They did all the interviews like JR said, so maybe its just being packaged as stories in between matches instead of a straight doc. .. same effect

  15. cmvag says:

    Haven’t buy a TNA DVD so far but Lockdown was a fun PPV to watch anf with the competition for a signed sleeve I think I’ll pre-order it. I mean it is 15€ (+- 20$) for a 2-Disc with many extras! 🙂

  16. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    Sucks to hear about the Mid South release not having a documentary. I’m still looking forward to it, though. I was never that familiar with the territory and was hoping to learn more about it and Cowboy Bill Watts. The matches will more than make up for it though, considering none of those matches have been released on DVD and Bluray previously. At least I don’t think they have.

  17. Steven says:

    I may be alone in this but any idea why WWE wouldnt just release the non major ppvs in multi packs? Extreme Rules/Payback, Night Of Champions/Over The Limit, Hell In A Cell/TLC, better yeah start bundling WWE 2013 PPV Collection Bluray. I would totally go for that.

  18. wrestlingfan says:

    Sweet looking foward to the Mid South dvd release…

  19. Jamie says:

    I need to move to the US. Canadian Walmarts are garbage. They NEVER have any WWE dvds there. When the Wrestlemania rereleases happened we didn’t get them and now this!

    • David says:

      I agree, WWE DVD/Blu-ray prices in Canada are generally garbage. First they’re practically impossible to find them here and even if stores like Best Buy, Future Shop, HMV carrying them they charge $35+ where in the US the same title is $10.

      The Best of In Your House Blu-ray is $42 on whereas has it for 22.99. The CDN and US dollar are practically at par, don’t see why we have to pay almost double than in the US.

      We also don’t get any of the Best Buy exclusive content on DVDs like Best of Nitro, 50 Greatest Finishers, etc, which also sucks.

      • Charles says:

        I’m from Canada too. On, Best of IYH bluray is 35.99$! that is insane

        • Jordan says:

          I live in the U.S. but spend time in Vaughan, Ontario, every month or two, and the Wal-Mart stores in that area seem to always have the one or two most recent PPVs, and the 2 or 3 most recent 3-disc sets. I was at a store yesterday where they had at least Royal Rumble (19.99), Bret Hart Unreleased and Nitro Vol 2 (24.99/each I believe). They may have had one or two others as well, but they usually have all the major releases – although unfortunately usually for about $5 more than some of the U.S. stores).

  20. NoNoYesYes!! says:

    It looks like Extreme Rules 2013 on blu ray might not get released here in the UK/Europe, Payback 2013 is available for pre-order at other retailers on blu ray though, also i think elimination chamber 2013 got a blu ray release in the US because of the Rock and drive more sales on that format but then again when hell in a cell 2010 and bragging rights 2010 got released on blu ray and were stopped after Survivor series 2010, Those 2 ppvs were nothing special but i think they were just going along with the blu ray format and see what it was like and how it performed in terms of sales like WWE did back in 2000 when they released Royal rumble 2000, Wrestlemania 2000, King of the Ring 2000, Summerslam 2000, Survivor Series 2000 on DVD but Blu-ray didnt and hasnt done well in terms of sales in the US!!

  21. David says:

    Any idea if Best Buy will be carrying Extreme Rules 2013 Blu-ray and the rest of the non-big 4 ppvs?

    Their website is only listing the DVD version for Extreme Rules and Payback. I hope WWE didn’t pull the plug again on non-big 4 ppv Blu-rays. Would have loved to own all 2013 PPVs in Blu-ray format.

    • Daniel Bee says:

      Info we have shows DVD only at present. Sometimes the Blu-ray details pop up later or just quietly on to a retail site, but not so sure for Extreme Rules. They may have made sure to get Chamber on Blu-ray because of it being a part of the Mania build and involving Rock. Just a hunch.

      • David says:

        Thats true…i remember Hell in a Cell 2010 wasn’t on their site, but was in store on release day (about 1-2 copies per store), so it was quite limited for the first first week or so. Didn’t know til it was confirmed here and someone had a copy on ebay for $65+.
