No More WWE DVDs & Blu-Rays on WWEShop Site?, Eric Bischoff Documentary Nearing Completion

February 17, 2016 by Daniel Bee

No More WWE DVDs on WWEShop - Fan Reaction

Those who regularly check WWEShop.com will have noticed their DVD stock shrinking.

Due to WWEShop’s stock of older DVDs and Blu-rays beginning to sell out, coupled with the recent $5 blowout sales, there’s just 32 Home Video titles left available on the site right now!

While there isn’t an official company response on the matter, we’re hearing this week from a source in the know that because of low margins on DVD sales, along with the advent of the WWE Network and its ever-expanding video library, it’s looking likely that stock will no longer be replenished.

The result, as we’re beginning to see, is a dwindling back catalog moving forward.

However, at this time new WWE DVD titles released month to month are still being quietly listed for purchase on the official shop site. The last few new releases can be found at these links:

The Best of RAW & SmackDown 2015 DVD
Best PPV Matches 2015 DVD
TLC 2015 DVD

WWE’s upcoming “Eric Bischoff: Sports Entertainment’s Most Controversial Figure” DVD and Blu-ray is reportedly being finalized this month — the content listing shouldn’t be far away!

The man himself was a guest on WrestleZone Radio this week, with his new WWE DVD set brought up in the discussion. Bischoff once again confirmed that it will include a documentary and described it as being made up of “80% original content” rather than relying on archive clips.

He revealed that he recently sat down to watch a rough cut of the DVD and was “very proud”, while also hinting that we can expect to see some surprising interviewees in the documentary.

You can listen to the full interview below, and pre-order the DVD/Blu-ray here on Amazon.com.

    honestly wwe shop has never really had alot of dvds or blurays.

    i remember 2002 when vengeance and judgment day were shop exclusives but thats really it so wwe shop losing its dvds blurays ehh no big deal.

    i just don’t want wwe to stop making blurays and dvds total cause i am a collector and i still buy wwe dvds and tna dvds

  2. Ronaldo says:

    I am subscriber to the wwe network I still buy there DVDs just for the ppvs but I am thinking stop buying there DVDs if the network has all of there ppvs in the library ! This happened to ufc 186 because of ufc fight pass were they stop released their DVDs !

  3. Andres G. says:

    To be fair, I rarely ever buy DVDs from the former ShopZone… Their $6 flat S&H rate isn’t worth it unless you buy various DVDs at once, but then their prices were always so high in comparison to eBay, Amazon, Walmart, etc., that it discouraged me from buying more than one DVD at a time.

    Thus, I only purchased from them when they had those special sales. Before that, I think that the only DVDs I had bought from there were Judgment Day 2002, Vengeance 2002, and SummerSlam 2002 (the latter two on sale; the former two ShopZone exclusives).

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      i remember those being just shopzone exclusives i wonder why ?? those two= vengeance and judgment day were just wweshop. i still think wwe could of released elimination chamber from last year on dvd, it was not that bad of a ppv

  4. Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Lifer says:

    It would actually be quite interesting to know, how many physical medias edition of their product WWE produce and sell..compared to say, 3-5 years ago, pre-Network era.

    That would maybe give a clearer indication of, what will happen in the next 3-5 years… perhaps there’s actually not going to be any physical media at all..which means, as a consumer, you are -not- owning the product you pay for..and even worse in my mind: you have to continue to pay, forever and ever.

    • LP1 says:

      Not true. You can still own them, just buy them digitally. You can buy pretty much any WWE release in digital version. You don’t need to rely on the Network. And you own them forever. It’s not like Netflix where some movies may be removed after a while.

      • ChadWWE says:

        With digital you stand the risk of losing, and you can’t resell it. Granted discs can get damaged, but I will buy hard copies everytime it is an option, even if digital is cheaper.

      • Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Lifer says:

        Thanks for info on that, regarding buying digital, was’nt aware of that, at least not aware of if it is avaliable where I am in Denmark.. 🙂

        When you say pretty much any release, would that sets like for example The Heyman, OMG vol. 2, the ECW Unreleased volumes, etc.?

        And are they released digitaly with the Bluray extras?

        Another reason why I personally choose physical media over the Network is that when I buy something, I buy it for what it is and I keep it, cos I like how it is.. over the past few years I read several statements about how WWE altered, changed or even deleted certain elements, segments from mainly documentary releases, and there may be reasons for it, good or bad, but I really hate when WWE do not stick to their own history, good or bad, because they suddenly have a need to be somewhat political correct, or what ever their motives may be.

        If buying digital versions of releases will be similar to buying Bluray or DVD, I may be a believer in digital.. as long as the extras and content are the same, and no furhter expences are needed or content being altered. ;-.)

        We”ll see what the future will bring.

  5. J says:

    Quit overreacting over this people. They will still release DVD’s their just cutting down on the old titles

    • Eric says:

      They will VERY likely stop releasing PPVs, at the very least. They might still do the big 4, but the other 8 will VERY likely move to Network only, along with eventually everything else. UFC has already done this. There hasn’t been a UFC event released since 186 or an Ultimate Fighter since season 18, so you have to subscribe to Fight Pass if you want to watch them. There is no reason, at all, to think that the WWE won’t do exactly the same thing. Remember disc sales, as a whole, were down 12% last year, and I’m sure that number is MUCH larger for WWE.

  6. RCS1988 says:

    I think eventually, they will stop releasing stuff on DVD, and only release blu-rays, since most people I know of transferred their collections to just Blu-ray. There are some that have all their content on portable hard drives. Most commercial advertising movies just say Blu-ray and digital or just digital.

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      Yeah but so far bluray does not sell so well which is why like some dvds like best of 2015 ppvs and raw sd 2015 were only dvd cause bluray did not sell so well

      • LP1 says:

        Blu-rays in general, like movies, sell better than their dvd counterparts. Just WWE, for whatever reason, has decided that they can’t sell BRs. However, the entire BR/DVD industry as a whole has seen overall sales drop. Between streaming services like Netflix and Hulu as well as movies being able to be purchased digitally, like through Vudu and Amazon Prime, physical media is going to become obsolete one day. It’s sad, but it’s the way the industry is going. It’s more convenient to press a button and watch a digital movie than it is to buy a disc. Not to mention digital movies take up no space in your home.

  7. Mark Markson says:

    I like the network, but I also like DVDs and blu-rays. But I don’t buy as many as I used to. For example, I don’t buy PPVs on blu-ray any more. Mainly because I find the current PPVs less good. I might be tempted to buy PPVs on blu-ray if there was an annual boxset with all PPVs of each year (sold at a lower price than individual PPV blu-rays). If they included all the NXT Takeover shows, some fans might buy them just to own these on home video.

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      the problem is bluray last few years has not sold so well. Which is why some releases like last 2 best of sets were dvd only

  8. Tommy D says:

    Really hoping this doesn’t spell the end of physical releases in the next few years.

    • Ryan says:

      I agree. I am a subscriber of WWE network but despite this, I still buy the big four on DVD every year as well as many of the specials. If they stopped manufacturing the DVDs that would really suck

      • Jeff Copeland says:

        i got the network and i still buy dvds just for some bios and a ppv i might want. hell i bought best of 2015 ppvs and best of raw and smackdown 2015 on dvd
