First Details on ‘The Kliq Rules’ – WWE Network Show & Expanded DVD/Blu-Ray

April 16, 2015 by Daniel Bee

WWE The Kliq - Classic Photo

At the beginning of this year we heard of a reunion show with The Kliq (Triple H, Kevin Nash, Shawn Michaels, Scott Hall, and Sean Waltman) planned and in the works.

We were however instructed to keep that quiet while the final details were confirmed, such as whether it would be a WWE Network offering or a physical DVD and Blu-ray release.

It turns out it will be both – a WWE Network show and an expanded Home Video.

“The Kliq Rules” will, as of now, be a 3 disc DVD set and a 2 disc Blu-ray set. On there will be a reunion show (expected to air on the WWE Network soon), a new documentary feature, and likely also a compilation of matches and moments involving members of The Kliq.

We first heard of the reunion going ahead for September but the scheduled release date of the DVD, according to Amazon (link below), is July 28th. It looks like WWE have recently green-lighted the project and pushed it forward for both the Network and Home Video.

WWE The Kliq - Hall of Fame

WWE’s plans to bring back the WCW Nitro DVD and Blu-ray series (along with DDP as host) have been known about since late on last year – but it’s now official!

“The Best of WCW Monday Nitro: Vol. 3” has just gone up here on

The scheduled release date is August 11th. We previously heard that Nitro Vol. 3 was penciled in for release in September, so this one may also have been pushed forward slightly.

Heads up, you can get “The Best of Sting”, the newly released TNA DVD compilation, for the lowest price of only $17.99 with FREE shipping included, here on

That saves you the $6 shipping fee that the official ShopTNA website charges.

The 3 hour DVD includes 8 matches between 2006 and 2011 during Sting’s run with TNA Wrestling, and naturally it has been released now to capitalize on his name value in WWE.

Fans in the UK and Europe will get the new Sting DVD in June.

Kayfabe Commentaries’ latest DVD offering is a “Breaking Kayfabe” shoot, with guest Terry “Sabu” Brunk. It released this week both via DVD and streaming On Demand.

The DVD is available to buy now through

Below is the DVD’s synopsis and the official trailer to watch!

Join Sean Oliver as he peels away the layers of Brunk and we meet the man with a historic wrestling family legacy, and a man living with the pain of being one of wrestling’s most death-defying athletes.

Here is a complex man, wrapped in the pride he has for what he’s done, the pain for things he’s done, and the realization that the end is near.

WWE’s new “Ultimate Warrior: Always Believe” Home Video also released this week. First run copies of both format, DVD or Blu-ray, come with the free mini-poster. Got yours yet?

As reported, the main feature is a 1 hour, 30 minute extended version of the WWE Network special on Warrior with new footage and interviews added. That’s joined by more than 20 matches and over 40 promo segments – 7 hours on DVD and nearly 9 hours on Blu-ray!

It’s priced from $19.98 here on, or from $19.99 here at

Fans in the UK and Europe will get the new Warrior DVD this coming Monday.

    I’m lost as to why this is being called a Clique “Reunion”. They seem to reunite every year at the Hall of Fame.

    At first thought, I thought I’d like to see this as more of a Q&A, like how they did with the DX special. Then I remembered we’re talking WWE, and the ‘Q’s that we’d get would more than likely be pretty lame, which means the ‘A’s would follow suit.

    I’d check it out on the Network first. If the Network version is good, then I’ll decide based on the bonuses. If the bonuses don’t do anything for me, then I’ll pass.

  2. Foley is Good says:

    Hope at the end of this reunion special we get a Shield reunion and they destroy these spotlight hogging slime bags. LOL.

  3. Anan says:

    The MSG Curtain Call will make this set worth buying for me alone. I hope that they cover the backstage “feud” of sorts or whatever it was that they reportedly had with The BSR (Taker’s backstage crew) if it’s true.

    • Vintage Simon says:

      I always found the story of Hunter Hearst-Helmsley’s “punishment” after the curtain call slightly misleading. Sure, he didn’t win the King of the Ring as planned, but he was still regularly on TV, and even won the Intercontinental Title in October that year – just six months after the incident!

      When you compare that to how mid-card guys are treated these days, it doesn’t seem much of a punishment at all.

      • Wrestlevessel says:

        From the moment the Kliq incident happened in May until that night in October Triple H had 0 feature match wins. All he did was beat Jobbers and lose to everyone like Marc Mero, Jake Roberts, Savio Vega, Barry Windham, etc. So he was punished in that he got no quality wins for 4-5 months. They did this angle where Mr. Perfect would come out and take his woman every time.

      • Kenny says:

        Hunter was punished in 1996. You can’t apply the rules of 2015 to that.

        Not only was he beaten like a drum, but he was beaten like a drum on TV. Meaning his value to the audience, and thus to WCW, if he were to choose to leave, was nil. Hunter had become a job guy. He’d win his enhancement matches, but when he actually got in the ring with another name guy (even an opening-match-level guy), he didn’t have a prayer of winning.

        I had totally forgotten about Hennig taking his girls! Lol! I’m sorry, but even in 1996, that made you totally lame.

  4. Thomas says:

    It would only be interesting if it’s got many of HBK’s Heel promos 1996-1998, like jumping up and down in JR’s face, DX searching The Undertaker, DX mocking the Corporation (not the Nation, the Corporation)…

    • Kenny says:

      Did they do a Corporation spoof? I only remember the one in 2006 (or whatever year it was) where Hunter and Shawn spoofed Vince and Shane. Either way, the NOD spoof was so much funnier.

  5. Foley is Good says:

    Why do I want to watch them praising a bunch of guys that every other wrestler hated. So Booker T gets 30 mins on Network and no Bruno Sammartino or real Sting release. But the Kliq gets more spotlight.

  6. Nev says:

    Hopefully we get the Michaels vs Ramon ladder match from WM X for the 1000th time

    • Vintage Simon says:

      I actually wouldn’t mind the SummerSlam 1995 rematch, which has only appeared on one compilation set (The Ladder Match).

      Maybe if they really have to use the WMX match yet again – and I really hope they don’t – they can at least give us a different camera angle, or new commentary from Michaels, Hall and Nash.

  10. Brad Attitude says:

    Warrior dvd = worth watching

    Nitro dvd = worth watching

    Kliq dvd = waste of time but matches may be worth a watch.

    • Jakki Steal says:

      I a million% agree, it all depends on the match selection…
      The only bright spot is that possibly the match selection will be bada$$!

      …BUT I highly doubt that the WWE will take the high road & provide quality unreleased matches within this set!

      I hope (pray) I am wrong but nothing the WWE (has done in the past 15/20 years) has ever made me feel confident in their choices!

      …So who knows???

  11. RabidHeat says:

    I hate that The Kliq has become a ‘thing’ now, as if they were like some credible faction in the history of wrestling. They weren’t even part of the product or TV broadcasts, or scripted into any storylines, and I just don’t want to watch a documentary about some unofficial backstage group that pretty much just played politics to suit their own ends and were disliked by their peers. I would watch documentaries on any of the guys individually, but I just think this Kliq is a bit silly when they weren’t actually a faction on TV.

  12. SRB says:

    I’ve always wished we could get a compilation release on stars that I know will never get sets on their own: Lex Luger, Rick Rude, Valentine, Rick Martel, and many others.

    • RabidHeat says:

      I totally second this, I actually think it’s time to start appreciating some of the late 80s/90s workhorses like Tito Santana, Rick Martel, Mike Rotundo, Bam Bam Bigelowand Tatanka, guys like that. I know they didn’t change the business or anything, but just because they wrestled in the gimmick era people act like they were worthless in the ring, and they really weren’t. Even before their gimmicks, these guys generally had credible careers beforehand. I think it’s certainly time some of my early 90s heroes were put into the Hall of Fame, despite not winning major titles, etc.

    • Foley is Good says:

      Totally agree. Maybe how they did True Giants. Not sure what you could call the DVD / Blu ray or what the theme could be though.

      • SRB says:

        Agree that it could have the exact setup that True Giants had. I also think guys like Bam Bam Bigelow, Tito, and Tatanka are great names for the list. Heck, I’d even go back a little farther to names like Dino Bravo, Brutus Beefcake, and Duggan. The list is pretty much endless. And I agree that the title would be difficult. Can’t really call it “Mid-Carders.” lol

  13. AD Degreez says:

    Not really sure about a kliq DVD it sounds a bit like its just a hhh project that will be a let down. On the other hand a Scott hall doc would be great he was one of the best guys coming through the “new generation” and the razor character was pure gold. I’d even just like a razor/hall match comp. hbk and hhh both already had a few sets each and Nash and xpac really don’t have much stand out matches….. Nitro vol 3 first day buy no matter wat!!!

  14. Mark Markson says:

    I agree with Mr Hesse, there no need for WWE to release the Wrestlemania X ladder match again.

    I hope they choose to include some rare matches on this set. Then I’m definitely getting this.

    Happy that we get a third volume of Nitro!

  15. Jammer says:

    Matches off the top of my head that could easily be on this Kliq DVD set…

    Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramon from Wrestlelfest 94
    Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramom from Paul Bearer’s Hits From The Cypt
    Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramon from Wrestlemania X
    Diesel vs. Razor Ramon from Superstars of Wrestling 94
    Diesel vs. Razor Ramon from SummerSlam 94
    Diesel/HBK vs. Razor/Kid from Action Zone 94
    The Teamsters vs. The Bad Guys from Survivor Series 94
    Diesel vs. HBK from Wrestlemania XI
    Razor Ramon vs. HBK from SummerSlam 95
    Razor Ramon vs. 123 Kid from In Your House Feb. 96
    Diesel vs. HBK from In Your House April 96

    Now that is just off the top of my head for matches involving Kliq members against each other. If they put on just random wrestlers of them teaming up facing other opponents (for example, Diesel/HBK vs. Bulldog/Yoko from In Your House Sept. 95) then this may be the greatest DVD/Blu Ray set ever!

    Definitely I will purchase it!

  16. Ryan says:

    Good to see that Nitro Vol. 3 now has a release date. What’s on everyone’s wish list for that set?

  17. Mr Hesse says:

    Any takers on Shawn vs Razor at Wrestlemania X appearing on this? I think it’s the most used match in the history of WWE DVD’s.

  18. Vintage Simon says:

    Sounds good. Maybe we’ll finally get the Diesel & Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramon & The 1-2-3 Kid match from Action Zone as an extra.

    Shawn Michaels vs. Hunter Hearst-Helmsley from Raw in May 1996 would be a good choice too, as it was there first ever televised match and hasn’t yet been released.

    • Jammer says:

      Yes!! I agree with you on the Action Zone tag match. I can’t believe that match hasn’t already made it on a WWE DVD release, especially an HBK one, since he has had so many. It’s like 20 minutes of awesome in ring action between Kid/Razor vs. Diesel/HBK. So here’s hoping it’s on the Kliq DVD/Blu Ray.
