WrestlingDVDNews.com can now exclusively reveal that the new “Macho Man” Randy Savage WWE DVD will be officially released on Tuesday, November 18th, 2014.
There are three editions planned – a standard 3 disc DVD, a 2 disc Blu-ray, and a “Collector’s Edition” DVD box set.
It’s titled “The Randy Savage Story” as of now. Lanny Poffo, brother of Randy, is said to be heavily involved with narration.
“Macho Man” Randy Savage was best known for his time in World Wrestling Federation (WWF) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW). Savage held 20 championships during his professional wrestling career. He held 6 world championships between the WWF and WCW, having won the WWF Championship twice and the WCW World Heavyweight Championship four times. A one time WWF Intercontinental Champion, WWE (formerly WWF) has named Savage as the greatest champion of all time.
“The Randy Savage Story” focuses on the life and career of Randy Macho Man Savage. The title chronicles the highs and lows of Randy’s life and career, and shows that while he was extremely driven and highly successful, he was a complex person who also had his struggles over the years. Later in his life, Randy remarried and found peace before his tragic and untimely death.
We can also exclusively confirm that a limited edition “Randy Macho Man Savage – Collector’s Edition” DVD box set is in the works and to be released at the same time. This will have special tin packaging and right now is planned to include the following items:
• 6 DVDs (New 2014 Randy Savage Story DVD & 2009 Macho Madness DVD)
• Randy Macho Man Savage T-Shirt
• Randy Macho Man Savage Bandana
• Randy Macho Man Savage Sunglasses
The T-Shirt, bandana and sunglasses are said to be exclusive to this collector’s edition set, and not available separately. The “Macho Madness” DVD from 2009 looks to have been brought back for this special box set as it was recently reported to now be out-of-print.
More than 20 interview subjects are said to be involved including the likes of Lanny Poffo (brother), Judy Poffo (mother), Hulk Hogan, Lex Luger, Diamond Dallas Page, Jerry Lawler, Ricky Steamboat, Kevin Nash, Bret Hart, Jimmy Hart, Gene Okerlund, Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, Ted DiBiase and Jake Roberts. A documentary main feature is expected.
Information we’ve received on the planned extras to the “story” refers to match picks against Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, Shawn Michaels and Ted DiBiase. Those are subject to change before the content listing is finalized and are not detailed any further than that.
