According to BBFC, the film classification body in the UK, the main feature of WWE’s upcoming Shawn Michaels VS. Bret Hart DVD and Blu-ray runs for 2 hours and 5 minutes.
The total runtime for the DVD version is listed as 7 hours and 18 minutes, whilst the Blu-ray edition has 1 hour and 30 minutes of extra footage on top.
All Blu-ray exclusive extras look to be included in full, rather than highlights.
Though the content for the new Stone Cold Steve Austin set has not yet been revealed, Walmart.com gives a little insight into it by listing these Superstars as starring in the DVD:
The Rock, Mr. McMahon, Triple H, Mick Foley, Bret ‘Hit Man’ Hart, Undertaker, Big Show, Kane, Kurt Angle and Chris Jericho.
That’s probably a mixture of matches and those contributing to the documentary portion. Stay tuned to the site to see what makes the cut.
The new Randy Orton DVD/Blu-ray has also now been released to the UK. Get your copy first at Silvervision.co.uk.
It’s WWE just being lazy by screwing over the paying customers. They skimp out on ppv extras and they don’t fill up the full 3 hours on discs. At least be honest and say 6 hours running time instead of 9.
WWE’s DVDs can only hold 3 hours of video and the Blu-Rays can only hold 4.5 hours.
So if they put out a 9 hour DVD, that’s 3 DVD discs and 2 Blu-Ray discs.
And they seem to try to put a full 9 hours on the Blu-Ray and less on the DVD to make it more attractive for us to buy the Blu-Ray.
But they definitely need to fix the back of the DVDs cause if they aren’t 9 hours, they shouldn’t be putting that on the back of them.
@Dt I agree with ya. Should be 3 hours per disc for the DVD version. I think the Blu-ray version should be at least 12 hours. Now, I can’t tell if the WWE uses a 25GB BD or a 50GB BD. With the Stone Cold BD since the doc is 2.5+ hours with 1.5 hours of BD Exclusive material then that is 4.0+ hours so far on the BD version.
Yeah man, if it states 9 hours that is the way it should be. The blu ray should be more than 9 hours of content.
can’t wait for the austin dvd. i just hope that the right undertaker matches from raw 99, and judgement day 01,are there and the right kurt angle match from raw 01 is also there. then i’m cool.
Exctied for this dvd!
Orton’s DVD was the same exact thing. Although it was a wonderfully produced set and came out great, disc one was 1 hour and 30 minutes, while discs 2 and 3 were 2 hours and 45 minutes. It’s crazy to me that I actually looked at this as improvement even though i was still missing the extra 2 hours making it a 9 hour set, as advertised by WWE. When the DVD’s lack total time you look back to the content and when the Orton DVD came in at about 7 hours I thought about how there were no matches with Rated RKO and no matches from SS where Orton was the sole survivor. And his first title win is missing. WWE didnt necessairly drop the ball as people say, but fill your discs! You have the content right on the shelf.
I agree with SRB, I expect at least 9 hours on a dvd that advertise 9 hours on the back. Greatest stars of 21th century DVD version was a little over 6 hours, 3 disc sets should not be below 9 hours. And the fact that disc 3 of the michaels-hart dvd is a complete waste with one match (an hour plus long match) and hall of fame speechs instead of just putting the montreal match along with those is a huge disappointment.
Awesome!!!!! i was worried that it was gonna be 90 minutes or sm weak! says to me that they actually put some effort into it! Ohhhh can’t wait!!!
I love when the WWE DVD documentaries are over 2hrs long. Thats awesome news!
Its amazing to me that the length of a DVD is something that has been stirring as of late. Im a firm believer that when the running time on the back says 9 hours it should be 9 hours. Not 6 hours, not 7 1/2 and not 8. Glad to hear this main feature is over 2 hours.
Great enough in my view!
Do not get why the blu ray has the normal 9 hours of content. It should be more loaded with content.
@JFR_WWfE79: There’s a printed listing in Orton’s DVD. However, there’s no insert or printed listing in the Blu-Ray.
Seems like a 2+ hour doc is becoming the norm for WWE DVDs and BDs. To me it looks like the BD versions are close to WWE’s “Approx 9 hours” mark. Has the custom inserts for the Randy Orton DVD and Blu-ray been made yet?
Good to see they put some time into the main feature, looking forward to this one.
