Bret Hart: The Dungeon Collection is released in just 9 days. Click here to pre-order.
We now have some further details as relates to the content of the “Dungeon Collection” set. Sunny Gupta sends word that for the Blu-ray edition Disc 1 runs approximately 4 hours and 17 minutes, while Disc 2 runs about 4 hours and 12 minutes.
Within those runtimes Disc 1 contains 17 minutes of Blu-ray exclusives and Disc 2 has 1 hour and 22 minutes of Blu-ray exclusive matches.
The Bret Hart vs. Andre the Giant match from Milan that’s included in the feature is reportedly of poor video quality. As speculated, the Stampede Wrestling footage is also not of exceptional quality and is clipped. Do keep in mind the focus of the DVD is rare and unseen matches from the vault so imperfections are to be expected.
In regards to edits, the Twin Tower’s theme “Jive Soul Bro” is dubbed by an in house instrumental. Instances of “Superstars of Wrestling” on banners are blurred on screen.

INSANE LOT of 128 DVDs (WWF 2001’s, Attitude Collection…)
WWF – Wrestlemania 15/XV DVD (OOP)
The match with Buzz Sawyer on the Bret Hart Dungeon Collection DVD appears to be from an old VCR tape that was used to tape a program off of a TV with rabbit ears (no cable/satellite back then).
Not that I’m complaining as it’s still a cool DVD to have, but some might have issues with this match as well.
Dave Meltzer reports on his website that Bret wanted the match with Andre on his set but since WWE didn’t tape the show at the time, the footage on the DVD comes from YouTube.
Seems like that’s true. The guy who actually uploaded the video to Youtube seems to think so, and Mark D who’s watched the Bret DVD think it’s identical. Gotta be a new move for a WWE DVD.
LMFAO. Miz looks like a ridiculous dork in this DVD.
The Marine franchise reminds me of another franchise titled The Substitute. With The Substitute franchise you had Tom Berenger in the title role in the first movie and Treat Williams in the title role in the last 3 movies.
Will the Marine release by Frementle Media?
There’s a listing for the DVD on Amazon.co.uk with April 15th release date. Not sure if it’s FremantleMedia doing it though.
Am I the only one who thinks that Miz looks like a young Michael Bien?
A lot of people need to realize that Stampede Wrestling, didn’t keep “master tapes” in the archives. They only kept the shows as they aired on tv. Which would mean, obviously, edited matches that could fit into the 1 hour tv time slot. Most wrestling companies back then didn’t foresee a future where home video would be a major source of revenue so it wasn’t important to keep them unedited.
As for the video quality of the matches, these are tapes from the 1970’s. Anyone expecting them to look perfect are fooling themselves. I’ve seen quite a few Stampede matches online, and the Andre match as well, and the quality is fine. It’s just not acceptable to some people who have become accustomed to HD standards and have forgotton what television shows used to look like.
different strokes for different folks.
if people are getting a compilation set of matches, they expect full matches not clipped ones. i’m sorry if your standards isn’t so great but u shouldn’t tell us what we should or shouldn’t expect to see.
The unclipped matches don’t exist though. They can expect full Stampede matches all they want, but if they don’t exist, it ain’t happening.
If they had any sense they would’ve gave Maryse a role in it (maybe a topless scene) then we would think about watching it. Seriously WWE has never made any watchable films since See No Evil and that was only average at best!
The Condemned was way better than See No Evil.
Come on The Marine 3? They wont be able to give that shit away for free! What a waste of discs and plastic.
Matches from Stampede Wrestling weren’t ever shown in full (possibly never even taped), so anyone expecting a 45 minute unedited match was sure to be disappointed. It was often the case that the matches were joined in progress and the closing 10 minutes or so were shown.
As long as the matches are watchable I could care less about quality. If the andre match looks like the one from youtube then that is very watchable. It’s not like it pixelated.
thank god i’m not getting the dungeon collection.
the best there is, the best there was & the best there ever will be was part of my bret hart trilogy collection along with the Hart and Soul Family Anthology and The Greatest Rivalries.
I dont need this collection with poor quality and clipped matches. Thats just ripping ppl off.
I wonder how many minutes are shown of the Bret vs DK in Stampede match?
If it’s only 5 minutes or so I’ll probably pass on this set.
What is the point of releasing those 2 matches if they are in very poor quality?
So people can see them?
Who would want to see a match in very poor quality?
You’re right, we should probably just burn anything taped before the 90s. Who would want to watch that?
Bret wanted people to see them.
Maybe I’m an idiot, but why, exactly is the “Superstars of Wrestling” logo blurred? Is there a definitive answer or just conjecture?
WWF/WWE let their trademark on the term expire in the late 80s and now someone else owns the term “Superstars of Wrestling”, thus, WWE has to blur it or buy it back; they’ve chose to blur it. This is also why when Superstars of Wrestling was relaunched a few years ago, the show was simply called WWE Superstars.
They wouldnt have called it superstars of wrestling anyways. That has the w word in it. Thats why they had stopped calling it that way back when it was a &highlight show hosted by Kevin Kelly.
Indeed, but it’s still stupid. If someone didn’t tell Vince about making a donation to get the rights to use the WWF scratch logo in archived footage, it would still be blurred today. Hopfully Triple H buys the rights to the trademark Superstars of Wrestling. I also hope he uitilizes the video library of stuff that was never seen before as well.
So is the Dynamite Kid match clipped? That’s a huge sticking point for me and if it’s not complete I’m not sure I’m picking this up.
i don’t think its even possible to get non clipped Stampede matches at all. I think they are all clipped. You would have to have been there live in attendance to see a full match.
Really? your telling me the cameras just stopped filming during portions of every match? For what reason?
Its not that the cameras stopped filming, its that Stampede(and many other companies from that time period) only kept the edited versions of the tv shows as they aired, not the master tapes.
It is ‘Superstars of Wrestling’ banners that generally get blurred, and it would be as such in the above referenced Twin Towers/Hart Foundation bout.
Yeah we noticed this mistake shortly after publishing the article and then edited it. Thanks for pointing it out though.
Marine 3, coming soon to a bargain bin near you! XD
