WWE has Superstar themed WWE DVD/Blu-ray documentaries planned for release over the next three months – on The Ultimate Warrior, Jerry “The King” Lawler, and Daniel Bryan.
WrestlingDVDNews.com can now exclusively share more details on each of them, including their runtimes and in two cases how they compare with the WWE Network offerings!
The Ultimate Warrior documentary first aired as a 58 minute special on the WWE Network called “Warrior: The Ultimate Legend”. The extended documentary planned for the new DVD and Blu-ray will run for approximately 1 hour and 33 minutes.
As you know, the original piece looked at the Warrior’s historic wrestling career while documenting his return to WWE for the Hall of Fame and his tragic passing thereafter.
“Ultimate Warrior: Always Believe” will be released on DVD and Blu-ray to the United States on April 14th, to the UK and Europe on April 20th, and to Australia on April 29th.
The Jerry Lawler documentary is all-new for DVD and Blu-ray and won’t have been seen before the Home Video release this year. We can confirm that as of now that main feature will have a runtime of approximately 1 hour and 25 minutes. There will also likely be extra, documentary-like stories and content featured on top as Blu-ray exclusives.
The documentary will of course cover all of Lawler’s storied career in wrestling so expect such topics as Memphis Wrestling, feuding with Andy Kaufman, later career as an announcer, Hall of Fame induction, the one and only WrestleMania match, and heart attack.
“Jerry Lawler: It’s Good To Be The King” will be released on DVD and Blu-ray to the UK and Europe on May 18th, to the United States on May 19th, and to Australia on June 3rd.
The Daniel Bryan documentary first aired as a 57 minute special on the WWE Network called “Journey to WrestleMania: Daniel Bryan”. The extended documentary planned for the new DVD and Blu-ray will run for approximately 1 hour and 6 minutes.
As you know, the original piece gave an overview of Bryan’s career while documenting his journey to WrestleMania 30 where he captured the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
“Daniel Bryan: Just Say Yes! Yes! Yes!” will be released on DVD and Blu-ray to the United States on June 2nd, to Australia on June 3rd, and to the UK and Europe on June 15th.
The next new WWE DVD and Blu-ray on the way is “The Road Is Jericho”, which officially releases to fans in the United States this coming Tuesday!
WDN reader Mike Rouse sends word of finding the Blu-ray on sale early at FYE.
Released the Tuesday after Jericho’s is the “YouShoot: Alberto El Patron” DVD, in which former WWE Superstar Alberto Del Rio sits down with Sean Oliver for a shoot interview made up of fan submitted questions…and some sort of tequila drinking challenge!
