There will be a Best Buy exclusive version of the Best of WCW Monday Nitro Vol. 2 DVD next month, according to where it is now listed for pre-order. Thanks to Dennis Reardon for passing along this news.

No word yet what it will contain, but you may recall the original Very Best of Nitro DVD had an FYE exclusive edition which contained extra footage on one of the discs.

Also listed on is an exclusive Blu-ray version of Elimination Chamber 2013, so it looks like Best Buy exclusive PPV Blu-rays are returning this year.

Last month we let you know that new stocks of the tricky to find 2-Disc Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior DVD and 4-Disc Walmart exclusive Raw 15th Anniversary DVD were being found in FYE stores. We can confirm through WWEDVDNews reader Reggie that FYE found old stock of a large number of 2003-2005 WWE DVD releases when auditing a warehouse and decided sell them at $6.99 each.

Other titles being found in stores as a result of this are Before They Were Superstars 2 (with Undertaker figurine attached), the “thick” FYE version of the Bret Hart DVD which includes a skullcap, and the FYE exclusive SummerSlam tins.

WWE Before They Were Superstars DVD Store Exclusive

WWEShop WWE DVD Sale has a big DVD sale on, including Knucklehead on Blu-ray for only 99 cents!

The WrestleMania 24 DVD and Blu-ray are back up for sale on WWEShop. You may recall they were removed due to a lawsuit filed against Floyd Mayweather Jr. and WWE over the usage of Mayweather’s entrance theme at Wrestlemania 24. Several months back the lawsuit was dismissed in court, which means they are again free to produce and sell the title.

Information available from the Australian distributor ( reveals three WrestleMania 29 DVD editions planned for that market. A 3-Disc Collector’s Edition, 2-Disc, and a Limited Edition version. A Blu-ray edition is also a given for release.

Speaking of Shock Australia, they have a Blu-ray sale going on over here.

    That could be possible, Tony. The more unreleased content we get the better. I’m dying to know what the bestbuy thing is too. Wish they’d hurry up and tell us. I really hope it’ll be worth it.

  2. Tony Schivaone says:

    I wonder if Lance Storm or Mike Awesome will be on the exclusive matches. There are no matches from May 2000-February 2001 and those two were arguably the two best names during that period

    Daniel, do you know when we will know what the exclusives will be? I’m dying to know!

  3. Luke says:

    A quick note on the old FYE stock popping in stores…they are NOT $6.99 each. Just look at your included photo, it has a $24.99 price tag, which is how it was priced at my FYE during X-mas. The Ultimate Warrior DVD was also $24.99. The cheapest old stock DVD’s I saw were $9.99, but most were $20-$30. The John Cena Best Buy exclusive Fan Edition was going for $40! (Not sure how FYE ended up with those.) I believe the Bret DVD with the skullcap was going for $30. They did have a buy 1 get 1 free going during X-mas though, which softened the blow considerably. Not sure if that’s still going on though. (The cheaper of the two titles was the free on of course.)

  4. MJN says:

    Best Buy should have exclusive blu ray content not DVD.

    • D walker says:

      Just letting you know that silvervision have dropped all blu rays to £10 and lower! Including Nwo, Brock lesnar, you get the point.

  5. SteelEdge says:

    For those of you asking about Wrestlemania 24 being brought back on sale, Silver Vision have said that it will be back in stock on their website within the next couple of weeks.

  6. Nelson says:

    hello, it is true that wrestlemania 24 bluray are back for sale? both amazon and ebay have them in very expensive prices, and I want it in region 1

    • Vincenzzzzzo says:

      I bought WM24 Blu-ray from right before it went on sale. Its available there. The people on Amazon will never see those sales prices, over $100 is rediculous for what they’re asking.

  7. Marius says:

    (Stupid-) Question… for the WCW set, is their any information for a best buy in europe, for example germany?

  8. Daniel Bee says:

    People seem to be forgetting last time with the Best Buy exclusives it just meant they were exclusive for a 3 month period before being released everywhere, such as through all online retail sites. I’m guessing it will be the same this time, and if that’s the case there’s not much need to worry about getting your hands on them eventually.

    • David says:

      I agree, but prices on ebay initially are going to be pretty high. Don’t think the average fan would know these are timed exclusives.

      I remember with Hell in a Cell 2010, BB actually removed it from the website, so it was assumed the Blu-ray was cancelled, but surprisingly it was confirmed on here and I saw one copy on ebay go for about $75-$80 during the first week of release.

      I live in Canada, so hopefully we will get those Blu-rays too. In 2010, they weren’t BB exclusive but rather available at all retails, so i assume it will be the same this time. Usually is pretty up-to-date, so likely a pre-order page will be added soon.

      • Daniel Bee says:

        Yeah, surely in Canada too as it looks like Elimination Chamber 2013 for one will be on Blu-ray in US, Australia, and the UK.

    • Colin.V says:

      Either way, I still have a feeling the exclusives won’t be all that impresive. Hope I’m proven wrong, but I highly doubt it.

      • SRB says:

        Either way, I’m still going to buy 19 copies just to show what a big fan I am. 5 to watch and then 14 to remain sealed.

    • Scott says:

      I’m pretty sure that was only for the Blu Rays that came out towards the end of 2010. The exclusivity obviously ended once 2011 hit. But stuff that came out earlier as BB exclusives stayed there for awhile. Royal Rumble 2010, Wrestlemania 26, Best Pay Per View Matches 2009-2010.

      Wrestlemania 26 was a pain for me personally as BB sold out of the Blu’s on day one, and it took about 2 weeks to get a copy.

      I don’t mind Best Buy having exclusive WWE Blu’s on one condition. Its only PPV’s, and the minor PPV’s at that.

      • Daniel Bee says:

        I’m pretty sure every Best Buy exclusive WWE Blu-ray was so for three months until that exclusivity period ended. I don’t remember any that stayed only in the one store. Those you listed are available to buy at online retailers now, so the point is for people worried about difficulty finding them, it won’t stay that way forever.

  9. Duane says:

    I’m just glad Elimination Chamber is coming out on bluray. I’d much rather get a bluray of a PPV since they are shot in HD. I also enjoy the clips from Raw or Smackdown that show you the build up to the show. The PPV DVDs are pretty bare bones these days so I hope more of these best buy exclusives are coming.

  10. Mr DVD says:

    Now that Wrestlemania 24 is allowed to go back on the shelves i hope Silvervision or Fremantle make it available again.

  11. Colin.V says:

    I really don’t think the Best Buy version will mount to much. And if they do put a match or two on it it has to be something worth it. Like a Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, or Randy Savage unreleased match or something like that. And if so, I’d get it for sure!

    • Tony Schivaone says:

      The most likely thing I can think of is that people that are on good terms with WWE that haven’t already been featured will be featured. Those types of people would be road agents, people with legends contracts, current talent, and other people on the payroll. People that have been with WWE relatively recently also will count unless they left on bad terms….which I think isn’t too hard to do since WWE seems to be burying Jericho and Chavo isn’t even on it since he’s in TNA. Don’t want to send royalty checks to people working for the competition, unless it is to rub it in their face (Jeff Jarrett for instance). So looking at the WWE roster, the only person I see who is on the roster that is not on the set is Regal. In terms of other personnel, there is Norman Smiley and Hugh Morrus in developmental, Fit Finlay, Mike Rotunda, Jamie Noble, and Billy Kidman as road agents, Sean Waltman and Perry Saturn as talent scouts, Jim Duggan has a legends contract, and Sid Vicious appeared last year. So WWE may want to reward “one of the their own” with a royalty check.

      As you can see I’ve put a lot of thought into this but its something I care about.

    • john rega says:

      The only thing that sucks about the best buy exclusive is that the price will go up like they did last time with exclusives. If WWE sold all of the ppvs on bluray I would buy them all.

  12. Tony Schivaone says:

    Actually, we could get a lot with this, and the reason is that the first volume of Nitro has a lot more content than the second(that we know of). The first volume had 50 segments(this was without blu-ray) and the second volume so far has only 36 segments, and even with the blu-ray exclusives it only has 45 segments. On the first volume, disc one has 17, disc two has 17, and disc three has 15. On the second volume, disc one has 11, disc two has 14, and disc three has 11. In terms of matches, the first volume has 32 matches, while the second volume has 28(with blu-ray it has 36). The reason is the first volume has a lot more non-matches and/or clips of endings of matches. So pardon me for geeking out here, but I think on disc one or disc three we could get some significant exclusives. The first volume had only one match but it lasted 15 minutes. The Clash of the Champions set had two 10 minute matches. It is obvious they are setting aside space on disc one or three for the exclusives.

  13. indyfan says:

    Best Buy exclusives on dvds are f***ing retarded and so ass backwards. I understand why a blu ray would get more content..i mean its a much larger media so it can hold more content…but a dvd. I hope its something stupid like wrist bands are something.

  14. Tony Schivaone says:

    Hopefully this DVD exclusive is actually something good not like the Atittude Era which just had Mae Young giving birth, a 39 second clip of Al Snow eating his boogers, and two throw away matches. Obviously there is plenty to choose from when it comes to Nitro. As far as the person who said DVD extras are pointless…why not do DVD *and* Blu-Ray exclusives? That’s even more content. For it to work it has to have worthwhile exclusives not just one throwaway match or segment.

    • indyfan says:

      So what you are saying is people should buy both dvd and Blu ray versions? If the exclusives came on both and were the same.. that is fine but what WWE is does is throw a DVD exclusive that the blu ray doesn’t have for people who buy it at Best buy.

      • Tony Schivaone says:

        If It means more content then yes but the DVD exclusive(s) need to be worthwhile. When you look at the bluray exclusives for The Attitude Era you really feel that you are missing out if you don’t get it. I didn’t feel that way about the DVD exclusives. That needs to change for this release. It is fun to speculate on what the exclusive(s) could be. When the match listing was released, people were complaining that there was only one match from 2000. Perhaps we could get more from that period.

        • Tony Schivaone says:

          It is also fun to speculate on who could be on the exclusives that hasn’t been featured much or at all. Dean Malenko only had one match. Ultimo Dragon hasn’t appeared at all. No focus on the Ravens Flock angle.

          • indyfan says:

            So if i buy the blu ray edition and the Best buy dvd version gets extra content( not on the blu ray). i should have to buy the dvd as well and spend double the money to get said extras? that’s complete bull shit in my eyes.

            Like i said earlier, blu ray has more space so it makes sense.

            Good thing you can get the said exclusives for free if you look and try hard enough.

  15. KarlKayfabian says:

    I dont mind the exclusives as long as they make it worth our while.

    • indyfan says:

      so they sell a regular dvd set, a blu ray set and then a best buy exclusive content dvd set that contains a match or footage not on the blu ray. What they are trying to do is make you buy the blu ray and a best buy dvd set.

      • KarlKayfabian says:

        One more time…I dont mind if they make it worth my while.

        • indyfan says:

          So you wouldn’t mind buying the blu ray(since it has alot of extra content that is worth while) and buying the dvd version for the one or two maybe three extras for like 25.00?

          They should of just included the extra content on the blu ray as well but they don’t its just an DVD exclusive

        • wrestlingfan says:

          The only way I would buy a best buy exclusive is if they threw in an extra disc… otherwise for a couple matches not worth it….period…

  16. LP1 says:

    Great news about Elimination Chamber being available on BR in the US. That means the first 3 ppvs of 2013 will all be available on BR. Hopefully this is the year WWE finally goes full on with a BR release for every PPV.

    • David says:

      The big 4 would be widely available and the rest would be BB exclusive…wouldn’t mind that. I think that would be a good way to have WWE Blu-rays like they did in 2010.
