WrestlingDVDNews.com can now confirm that the new Ultimate Warrior WWE DVD will be released on Tuesday, April 1st, 2014. There is also a Blu-ray edition in the works.
As reported here on the site early last month, the DVD was added to the Home Video schedule without a name but listed as a “match compilation” with no official word on whether or not Warrior would be directly involved with the project.
There is a chance the man himself will be back with WWE for the purpose of this DVD release, as new information we’ve now received refers to “documentary style interviews with Ultimate Warrior”. However, it is stated that those new interviews are still pending confirmation.
It may be the case that WWE is still trying to secure Warrior for a Hall of Fame induction (also in April) to tie in with this release, or at least were doing so at the time the promotional material was made. In either case it looks like the DVD is definitely going ahead with or without him.
Also hinted at are new interviews with other wrestlers of the era, so should Warrior come on board for the project it looks like the DVD/Blu-ray set will be a match compilation with documentary style footage and interviews in between bouts. Since the first Ultimate Warrior DVD in 2005 painted him in a negative light, WWE will be looking to put a positive spin on Ultimate Warrior’s career this time around with the new compilation.
Here’s a reminder of the official synopsis revealed last month:
He is one of the most colourful and intense Superstars of all time, the Ultimate Warrior! Now for the first time ever, WWE honors his illustrious career with this ultimate collection of bone-crunching matches. Feel the power of the warrior – featuring battles against his biggest rivals such as Hulk Hogan, Jake Roberts, Ravishing Ric Rude, Sgt. Slaughter and more!
WWE fans have long awaited another Warrior DVD since the controversial release of 2005’s ‘Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior’. Finally, with over 7 hours of matches from this larger than life Superstar, this action on this home entertainment release is truly OUT OF CONTROL!!
“Signature Sounds: The Music of WWE” is now available here on Amazon.com to pre-order on DVD for March 18th release.
As we announced last month, this is a single-disc DVD and not coming to Blu-ray format. Early information suggests that 25 tracks will be looked at in the feature, also including new interviews with WWE composer Jim Johnston to give a back story on the music.
Music has been integral in WWE history, especially anthems for all the greatest WWE Superstars. Since Sgt. Slaughter first made his entrance to the Marine Corp hymn in the early 80?s music themes have become synonymous with the Superstars themselves. Just hearing the first few notes brings the crowd to their feet. They are the songs that let the WWE Universe know that business is about to pick up.
Now, get behind the music and learn the inside story behind the timeless anthems of WWE and the superstars.
Releasing this Monday here at WWEDVD.co.uk is Battleground 2013 on DVD and Blu-ray from £12.99. This will mark the first time the PPV event has been available on Blu-ray format.
There are 6 extras included on the UK’s Battleground DVD including the Kickoff Show match (Dolph Ziggler vs. Damien Sandow), plus another 5 Blu-ray exclusive extras on top!
