Following yesterday’s article clarifying what we know on the situation with the Survivor Series Anthology being put on hold, we had the chance to talk to a former WWE employee in this area, concerning the status of the series.
The source revealed to us that the prominent reason why further volumes of the Survivor Series Anthology haven’t been released is because they feature Owen Hart footage on them. They went on to say that WWE had plans in place to continue the collection in 2010 and around the same time that year Martha Hart went after them over the Hart & Soul: Hart Family Anthology DVD set.
Judging by this revelation and further comments from the former employee, it would appear that other theories on the Survivor Series Anthology not continuing (such as Chris Benoit’s inclusion or WWE no longer releasing ‘complete collection’ sets) can now be put to rest.
No official word if we’ll ever see new volumes but as of now that seems unlikely.
The Best of King of the Ring will be released on DVD and Blu-ray to the United States next Tuesday, December 13th.
