With the next WWE Home Video release still 2 weeks away (SummerSlam on October 4th) we look to TNA Wrestling who have gotten back in the DVD business somewhat as of late!
Since our recent update on TNA’s new Slammiversary 2016 DVD, the company put out a few more titles on their official shop site, one of which is pictured below with thanks to WDN reader “JTwoH” — “One Night Only: Rivals 2015”.
Kayfabe Commentaries have confirmed that the last entry in their Timeline ECW series, “Timeline: The History of ECW – 1992/1993”, will have a total runtime of more than 3 hours!
It’s slated to be released next month as double-disc DVD set and there will also be a Signature Edition available. That signature will belong to Tod Gordon, founder of ECW, who was brought in to be interviewed for the series finale at the site of the old ECW Arena in Philadelphia.

Warrior vs Slaughter….not a fan of Slaughter’s character and storyline. Match was okay. Mostly remembered for Savage’s interference.
1994 RR…while still in its lean years, this was one of the best Rumble matches still to this day. While I understand why they went with Luger, I actually preferred they went with Bret and Owen to further that feud between them even more which was already furthered during/after their Tag Team Title match earlier on in the night, or just have Bret win The Rumble.
HBK vs Sid….not a bad match.
SD 15-man #1 Contender’s Battle Royal….wow. thought they were only doing PPV Rumbles. Okay. This is a rare one 🙂
I really hated the finish of the ’94 Rumble. I remember sitting there watching and yelling at my TV, “Just let them continue the match!”. Which they ended up doing with Batista and Cena in 2005, although that was not a planned spot. That was actually an accident. Batista was supposed to hold on to the rope and Cena would be eliminated, but Batista messed up. Vince coming out looking pissed was a shoot. But back to ’94 for a second. The reason they never showed you a clear cut shot of both guys feet hitting the floor is because Luger’s feet touched first and it would’ve ruined the finish. That’s why they only showed you different camera angles from other sides of the ring. Either way it was a dumb finish. The people clearly wanted Bret to win, but Vince was pushing his Luger fetish at the time and the crowd hated it. Listen to the boos when Finkel announces a double winner.
Did’nt he tore his quad or something, running down to the ring, mad as hell? Vinnie Mac was’nt expecting to do something physical that night, so he had never warmed up, if I remember right himself saying on his DVD. -lol-
I think in the end it worked out because at least according to rumors the crowd reaction to both Bret Hart and Lex Luger was what made Vince decide to kill off the main event push of the latter in favor of the former (crazy: originally Bret Hart was rumored to fight his brother in the undercard of WrestleMania, with no involvement of him in the main event at all. this would be like the WWE having gone through with not putting Daniel Bryan in the main event of WrestleMania XXX)
For me the list won’t be complete unless it features the HHH/Cactus Jack street fight from 2000. Still one of the most hardcore matches in company history.
That would be a great match to see on the set. Hopefully that or the I Quit Match Foley had with The Rock will be on it.
Yeah it was on the Ric Flair Ultimate Collection that came out either 2003 or 2004
and on the Bobby Heenan release in 2010.
Isn’t the full 1992 Royal Rumble match on the Ric Flair DVD set that came out some time ago?
yeah it is, it was also on the Bobby Heenan DVD as well.
I’d like to see the following matches on this set:
• Benoit vs Jericho – IC Title Ladder Match
• Benoit vs Angle – WWE Title Match
Highly unlikely but those would be AWESOME inclusions!
Those extra matches are pretty damn sweet. I love it. Hopefully more good surprises are coming.
YES! They added the 1994 Royal Rumble match-up!!! That is one of the greatest Rumbles in history along w/the 2001 Austin return match! Yet there are still loads more to go such as the 92, 95 & 2004 Rumble matches!
the 1992 royal rumble match has been released on several dvds already and i believe the 1995 royal rumble in its full was on one of the previous shawn michaels dvds. the 2004 royal rumble is a long shot consider who the winner is.
True, the 1992 & 1995 Royal Rumbles may have been released on previous DVD’s, but not on any Blu-Ray’s!!!
As for the 2004 rumble match (being a long shot) referring to Chris Benoit cos of his criminal offences, than no – he’s very unlikely to be included, although it is a match that is a top Rumble match that needs to be on this set.
who cares if they’re not released on bluray? the won’t be in HD anyway since they happened over 20 years which was a pre-hd period.
i’d like to mr mcmahon’s or triple h’s royal rumble win in their full. I think they have more importance over benoit’s rumble win and have more history with wwe.
I care, as well as others who only purchase blu-ray sets.
Actually, SD footage on Blu-ray can look better compared to DVD due to better codecs used for BD and the fact that its uncompressed picture quality. DVD can only go maximum 9-10Mbps whereas BD can do maximum 30-40Mbps.
Eventhough its not HD, the quality of SD on Blu-ray is still miles better than DVD.
Not thrilled with these reveals. I like that Warrior is included but that’s about it. Don’t care about Eddie, only liked him in the comedy stuff with Chyna.
There was one of the best tag team matches ever at one of the Rumbles, I don’t know which year, it was between 1990 and 1994, one of the first matches was The Rockers vs The Orient Express. That was marvelous, I hope they include it.
Rockers vs Orient Express was given the green light for this set yesterday!
WOW!!! Can’t be more happy about that! The Smackdown Rumble from 2004 where Eddie win what a great moment!!! The 1994 Royal Rumble is one of my favorite too. Can’t wait to Friday to see the full listing.
The Eddie Guerrero winning the SD Rumble…. of course! Well, there’s the Eddie automatic Eddie Guerrero match that you must get on all WWE compilations DVDs/Blu Rays that come out. Sid vs. HBK is a long time coming to be released on a DVD set that isn’t the actual 97 Rumble. I figured HBK would have put that match on one of his DVD sets years ago, since it is him winning the WWE Title in his home town. Warrior vs. Slaughter is a beauty too for nostalgia reasons! And the 1994 Rumble is a nice one to have, and not really shocked. First time 2 guys win the Rumble at the same time. Not a bad listing today!
Another great reveal today, I loved the SD Rumble from 2004. I can’t wait for the rest of the weeks reveals
Very VVVVVVVEEEEEEERRRRRRRYYYYYYY impressed with today’s reveals! I have been watching for Warrior/Slaughter since Ultimate Collection and Always Believe so that’s a HUGE plus for me the 94 Rumble match is very significant and historic for the double finish and it’s no exaggeration if you watch the finish closely both men’s feet do in fact touch the floor at exactly the same time amazing now if they include the complete Rumble matches from 92 11 and 16 Shawn/Taker from 98 and maybe Bret/Diesel from 95 I will be completely sold can’t wait to see what comes next
Nice little gem to see the Smackdown no. 1 contender match from 2004 in full, I always felt “robbed” with the only 9 minute highligts on the extras of the No Way Out 2004 DVD.
I am so glad to see the ’91 WWF Championship match finally make a compilation debut..hope they include Slaughters overly cartoonish but still hilarious funny “Ultimate Puuuuuuke..”-promo!
’94 match is okay, I understand why it is included considering the ending.
Sid vs. HBK feud never had my interest, mainly because Sid is extremely limited in the ring..and a bore on the mic.
Oh man, I was REALLY hoping we would see non PPV Rumbles. I am SO EXCITED to get the Smackdown one where Eddie wins!!
