Two potential new WWE DVD projects have been revealed today by the UK retail site, Zavvi.
Most notably, appearing there is a Sting DVD and Blu-ray which is listed for September pre-order.
Back in 2008 WWE actually scheduled a Sting DVD set for release but the project was shelved rather quickly. This time however with reports of Sting signing a deal with WWE, and appearing in the Ultimate Warrior documentary last night on WWE Network, it could very well happen!
When Steve Borden was still a part of the TNA roster, WrestlingDVDNews.com put together this match compilation “fantasy concept” titled Sting: The Ultimate Collection. It’s worth a look again for debating which Sting matches should be chosen for the new DVD/Blu-ray, in addition to a probable planned documentary portion.
The second WWE DVD project revealed as a possibility for this year looks at the rivalry between Undertaker and Kane. Information available to us suggests that if going ahead it may be a single-disc release rather than a full 3 disc set, but it might also make it to Blu-ray format.
The current working title for the DVD/Blu-ray is “Brothers of Destruction“.
“Ladies and Gentlemen, My Name is Paul Heyman” looks to be the planned name right now for the new Paul Heyman WWE documentary.
As mentioned, it’s coming to both DVD & Blu-ray formats on August 5th, 2014, and can already be pre-ordered here on Amazon.com in time for then.
All of these rare WWF DVDs pictured (and more) are up for grabs today here on eBay.com. There are 16 titles in total being auctioned off individually there. Grab a deal!
We recently showed you pre-release photos of RAW After the Show DVD. Below is now a first look at the Blu-ray edition of that set, courtesy of WrestlingSuperStore.
“The Best of RAW – After the Show” is the next WWE DVD/Blu-ray release incoming and it hits stores this Tuesday! You can pre-order your copy with Amazon by clicking here.
Don’t forget about your chance to win 4 WWE DVDs – entries close on Tuesday!

@David: yes the title does matter to some people. Got a problem with that?
One of the ongoing arguments on this site is if covers, running time, and titles matter. While this argument will never be solved, I say they all matter and are just as important as the content. When you buy a blu-ray or DVD, you are buying a package. Presentation does matter. If WWE sold their sets in sandwich bags without artwork, just selling discs, their sales would decrease. It all matters: time, content, titles, and artwork. The very fact that WDN reports on this stuff shows it is of some importance.
I’d say, for one, covers do matter. Those articles with cover reveals on WDN over the years have always got a reaction from readers. People care. A lot of us here are DVD collectors and the artwork on them is what we see forever more when we pick them up so it matters especially to those folk, it may even decide if we watch that particular DVD at that particular time in a strange way.
Titles maybe not so much but as SRB says the package as a whole of course matters.
I have no interest in the Brothers set. The Sting set should be awesome though.
I’m really hoping for:
1/88 first Sting vs. Flair from NWA Pro
2/88 Sting vs. Flair from NWA WWW
9/7/88 Sting vs. Windham Clash
9/12/89 Sting/Flair vs. Slater/Muta Clash
10/27/90 Sting vs. Sid Havoc
12/16/90 Sting vs. Black Scorpion Starrcade
10/27/91 Sting/Gigante Steiners vs. Vader/Cactus/Abdullah/Hall Havoc
2/92 Sting vs. Vader Power Hour
2/29/92 Sting vs. Luger Superbrawl
9/2/92 Snake/Vader/Rude/Invader vs. Sting/Nikita/Steiners Clash
2/21/93 Sting vs. Vader Superbrawl
7/18/93 Sting/Bulldog vs. Vader/Sid Beach Blast
8/93 Sting vs. Flair WCW Saturday Night
10/24/93 Sting vs. Sid Havoc
9/18/94 Sting vs. Vader Fall Brawl
11/26/95 Sting vs. Flair World War 3
6/16/96 Sting vs. Regal Bash
2/22/98 Sting vs. Hogan Superbrawl
6/14/98 Sting vs, Giant Bash
4/12/99 Sting vs. Flair Nitro
3/19/00 Sting vs. Luger Uncensored
Here’s the likely match listing for Undertaker vs Kane
vs Kane Wrestlemania 14
Vs Kane Unforgiven 1998
vs Kane and Mankind Fully Loaded 1998
vs Kane Judgment Day 1998
vs Kane Survivor Series 1998
vs Kane Inferno Match – Raw 1999
vs Kane Summerslam 2000
vs Kane Wrestlemania 20
vs Kane Bragging Rights 2010
This is going to be so much overkill….
The Brothers of Destruction project will be a pass for me at a first view. Not the best rivalry, very slow tempo pace, especially their 2010 feud, and I do not recall any great tag match they had standing united together.
Also think, that the overview storied story will be covered in the inevitable Undertaker doc that will come some day.
like the Paul Heyman title, hope it will not be subject for change; no one really knows how to introduce his/her self like Heyman.. promos are highclass..the way he interacts with the ordiens..brilliant how he comes up with counter reactions and the way it is expressed. Really looking forward to that one.
I just hope the WWE produce a suitable release containing substance and not a disapointed set like the Bobby Heenan release, that was a short fuse overview of a great manager/commentator character.
Bros. of Destruction is only a single disc? It could easily be a three disc set.
At this point, you could also make three (or more) Sting collections.
The Paul Heyman dvd title sucks. Just call it Paul Heyman … geez!
Does the title of a DVD really that big of a deal?
Speaking just for me, I like the title of the Paul Heyman set. I can’t wait to see what they could possibly put on it.
Anything vs Vader (especially the strap match) or vs Flair should end up on the Sting DVD, those were his best two opponents.
I can’t wait for this dvd to come out. I hope that wwe does it right. They should have one match where the bladerunners teams up. At least one flair vs sting match. That should be a rivalry dvd between flair and sting. Superbrawl 3 match should be one there vs vader strap match.. Flair vs sting either clash 1 or worldwide 88 match. Have a nice day.
Well overdue! I really hope there’s a 2 hour doc with the matches. And that DVD artwork is gorgeous; let’s cross our fingers the WWE comes up with something half decent. They’ve been hit or miss with their covers lately…
I hope we FINALLY get that Sting vs. Vader Superbrawl match.
That’s pretty awesome finally a Sting set and if they do a Greatest rivalries like the hbk and hitman set that would be interesting!!! Hope it comes true!
I’m very very interested in how the possible Sting documentary will be if it happens. I’ve been a fan of his since his time with the late Warrior.
And that BOD DVD, bring it on!
The Heyman one, I hope it’s good and that they hold nothing back and that they got Shane Douglas and Raven to be on it.
i am glad a sting bio will happen long overdue
