July 11, 2011 by Daniel Bee

WWEDVDNews.com can now exclusively reveal first official details of WWE’s planned Shawn Michaels/Bret Hart DVD.

First off, it will be part of a new series of WWE DVDs entitled “WWE’s Greatest Rivalries” so expect others in the future, such as the previously planned Austin/Rock DVD.

The working title of the DVD as of now is simply, Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart.

Release date: October 25th, 2011 (US), on both DVD and Blu-ray formats.


We can also reveal WWE’s official synopsis for the set:

For more than a decade, Bret “Hit Man” Hart and Shawn Michaels engaged in perhaps the most storied rivalry in the history of sports entertainment, from their teams (the Hart Foundation and the Rockers), through battles for the Intercontinental Championship and the richest prize in the business, the WWE Championship.

Their enmity spilled out of the ring, and led to the most infamous incident in the history of professional wrestling, The Montreal Screwjob. More than a decade later, the two men buried the hatchet as both are now WWE Hall of Famers. LINK TO WWEDVDNews.com

Now, for the first time ever, the two sit down together and rehash their intertwined destinies in Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart. These new, never-before-aired, interviews will shed new light and insight on controversies fans have speculated about for years. PLEASE LINK TO WWEDVNEWS.COM WHEN COPYING THIS CONTENT

    To have BOTH Shawn & Bret discussing matches they have been in together plus the infamous Survivor Series Match – I would run and buy that DVD as soon as it hit the shelves!!!

  2. Isrs4life says:

    Weak 3-Disk DVD Sets releases so far this year
    But till now and the end of the yeae releases for
    whats confirmed on schedule are sweet!

  3. Isrs4life says:

    I love this idea, of matches we’ve wanted for years and fans way back
    from 1997 can finally enjoy them better as they should be I will
    probably buy Bret Hart&Shawn Michaels feud set myself.

    Its only been put on compilations for the WWE Championship and the outdated Shawn Michaels: From The Vault. What’s the big deal? It IS a masterclass of wrestling and it does deserve to be on a pedestal. If you can’t watch a 75 minute WRESTLING MATCH then you are not a WRESTLING fan in my opinion. You are something else. Sports entertainment or whatever. I would watch these two wrestle for a week personally.

  5. Bryan says:

    Bring on some old Rockers vs Hart Foundation matches from MSG and the Boston Garden

  6. mikey says:

    i expect edge and cena to be on this dvd

  7. Glad to hear a Series is planned

  8. SRB says:

    I would find it truly stupid if they produced a 3 disc set of these two legends and left out their most remembered match. I saw the match live when i was about 13 years old in CA and was on the edge of my seat for the entire thing. besides seeing the match live, yes it has been on several sets and because its over an hour yes it does take up a lot of disc time. But, As far as Bret/HBK go, theyve had a lot of matches and not many have been released besides little things here and there. This DVD will prove to be a milestone in releases and JR was right, groundbreaking is the best word for it. Although i’ve seen the iron man match 100 times, if it wasnt on this dvd i would be very dissapointed.

  9. K-mac says:

    I know you have to have the Iron Man Match on there..it is a vital part of their legacy. It is just my opinion but that match has been placed on a pedestal and it doesn’t deserve it.
    I hope some of their matches from the early 90’s are on there.

    If you don’t want to have the iron man match on this DVD the chances are it isnt for you anyway. If you can’t appreciate what that match means for both men you probably shouldnt bother buying this. I really hope it is on there because it wasnt on Bret’s DVD and I’m a Bret fan. Saying you don’t want any matches on a rivalries set is even more ridiculous. The whole point is that these two men were amazing in the ring together. If you can’t understand that, don’t buy it. Yeah, its gonna be the same two wrestling each other over and over. Personally I love that because I love watching them wreslte. If you don’t its obviously not aimed at you.

  11. K-mac says:

    The Iron Man Match is the most overrated match in History. If you start watching about 40 minutes in then it is a great match.
    I am very much looking forward to this DVD.

  12. Steven says:

    This is the dvd I’m looking forward to but I wonder why they changed from Austin/Rock to HBK/Hart most likely because of their history. I also wonder of on this dvd they will have that segment of where Bret said Shawn Michaels the American hero and Shawn went Yes Bret Hart in a funny tone and I say it will have a little bit of DX on the dvd, since DX and the Bret’s Hart Foundation was feuding at the time.

  13. thomas says:

    kinda looking forward to the dvd the iron man match at wm 12 is a classic for sure no doubt about it 🙂

    The Iron man match at Wrestlemania 12 was and still is the greatest match in WWE history,you won´t find another match with lots of near falls,suplexes,aerial moves,psychology like that anymore!We all should thank Bret and Shawn for going over 1 hour and having such a 5 star classic!Don´t you agree?

  15. Anonymous says:

    Undertaker/Mankind or Undertaker/Kane feuds would be great too to be featured in a 3 disc set!

  16. Anonymous says:

    I can´t wait for this one!The two greatest WRESTLERS not entertainers of all the time!No offense to Rock/Austin but Hart/Michaels is the greatest feud ever!Rock/Austin=pure entertainment;HBK/Hart=pure wrestling at his best!

  17. PenLOLbury says:

    please not the iron man match, don’t waste an hour of valuable disk space

  18. ECWMar says:

    This could be the greatest set of all time. Definitely buying.

  19. Anonymous says:

    hope we’ll still see austin/rock and also i will like to see hogan/piper rivalries dvd.now that was a classic feud.

  20. Greg says:

    maybe hogan and the warrior can bury the hatchet in one of these dvd sets!

  21. william says:

    I hop we get rock hhh and taker austin two great riverys

  22. SRB says:

    im sure we will get the iron man, the ladder match from 92 the tag match with savage and flair, the match from ss97 and the ss match where it was the harts vs michaels knights. should be a great release. and i agree, im hoping for some interviews from the height of their feud

  23. Kane 316 says:

    will they be
    the undertaker vs mick foly
    kane vs undertaker
    hhh vs the rock
    vince vs austin

  24. Anonymous says:

    hopefully we’ll see some of their missing matches from the old coliseum video’s that never saw the light of day on dvd.

  25. Mark D says:

    Oh no… I guess after a five year absence on a DVD (I think?) we are getting the most over-rated, dullest match in WWE history…The Iron Man!

  26. bosshoglarry87 says:

    Awesome!!! Thanks for the quick response!!!

  27. Alan says:

    Hopefully not. Most of them are on other sets anyway. I’d much rather see interviews, promos and segments from their feuds instead – in particular, the heated exchanges from Raw in 1997.

  28. bosshoglarry87 says:

    Any idea if there will be matches included??

  29. Brian C. says:

    Looks like this will be a late birthday gift for me.
