As we’ve been reporting on, a store exclusive of the DVD will be available at Best Buy which contains two extra matches. That’s currently on sale on the BestBuy.com website for $17.99. Joey let us know that in Australia this exclusive version will be available through JB HI FI stores, which is being promoted as a limited edition.
Many of our readers have informed us that they have found the DVD already out in their local K-Mart stores. One such reader, Dave, speculates that they may have special deal in place with WWE because the releases are often available to buy several days before other stores.
Here are a couple of screenshots taken from the Best of Nitro Vol. 2 DVD.
Unlike in the first Best of Nitro DVD, the WWE logo is always shown in the corner this time.
We can now confirm the runtimes of the DVD edition – Disc 1: 2 hours, Disc 2: 2 hours and 17 minutes, Disc 3: 2 hours and 28 minutes. As reported, the Blu-ray contains 1 hour and 43 minutes of extra content.
A few more edits have been spotted. Goldberg’s WWE entrance theme is used rather than his WCW one, and Sting’s track entitled “Man Called Sting” has been taken out.
There are unedited “WWF” utterances throughout the DVD (such as when Alundra Blayze trashes the Women’s Championship). Dave Meltzer gets a mention by host DDP, and the TNT logo is visible next to wrestler names as they make their entrances.
Thanks to reader “LP1” for passing along the news that earlier this week Bruno Sammartino did an interview with Wrestling Observer Radio, during which he confirmed that a DVD on his career is part of his new deal with WWE. He also talked of being a part of several new “Legends of Wrestling” roundtable discussion shows and the possibility of being included in future WWE produced video games.
More rare WWE DVDs are being found at FYE stores. John Domyan sent word he picked up WWF No Way Out 2002, Vengeance 2001, and Wrestlemania 2000 all for $45. Also a heads up that FYE are still running their “buy 2 get the 3rd for $1” promotion on used DVDs. As we’ve been reporting about lately FYE recently located stocks of several long out of print titles when auditing warehouses, such as the 2-disc Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior DVD, and began selling them at $6.99 a piece.
The Royal Rumble 2013 DVD/Blu-ray is now available to pre-order on WWEShop.com.
A new WWEShop promo code is available for February. Entering code “FEB15” at checkout gets you 15% off any order of $50+. You can use it to get the “2012 DVD Collection” down in price to just $84.99. The package includes the 12 PPV DVDs of the year, Best PPV Matches 2012, and Best of Raw & Smackdown 2012. Go to it.
Those 150 Coliseum Video tapes we mentioned earlier this week were all auctioned off individually on eBay. The five top sellers were Survivor Series 1997 ($67), King of the Ring 1996 ($44), In Your House #2 ($36), The Women of the WWF ($32), and Demolition ($32).
