Bret “Hit Man” Hart: The Dungeon Collection is one of the next WWE Home Video offerings on the way this year and promises rare, never-before-released matches as chosen by Bret himself [watch interview]. It will be produced on both DVD and Blu-ray formats, and right now, we can exclusively reveal two matches planned for the content.
2-out of-3 Falls Match for the British Commonwealth Jr. Heavyweight Championship
Bret Hart vs. Dynamite Kid
Stampede Wrestling • December 1978
Bret Hart vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin
Sun City Superbowl [South Africa] • September 14, 1996
For nearly 30 years, Bret “Hit Man” Hart travelled the globe proving he was “The Best There Is, The Best There Was, and the Best There Ever Will Be”. From his roots in his family’s own Stampede Wrestling, to the bright lights of WWE, WCW, and his watershed return to the ring in 2010, no Superstar could match his unmistakable presence in the ring. Known as the “Excellence of Execution”, he is widely regarded as the greatest technical wrestler of all time, evidenced by multiple reigns with the Tag Team, Intercontinental, WWE and World Heavyweight Championships.
Now in this collection, compiled by the Hit Man himself, fans can experience Bret Hart’s best matches never-before-released on DVD. Bret takes the viewer behind each match in a brand new, revealing interview detailing the inside stories surrounding these rare matches. Over 8 hours of in-ring action is presented, including classics from the Stampede Wrestling vault as well as vintage WWE bouts against the top stars of the 80s and 90s.
The Dungeon Collection DVD/BD will be released to the United States on March 5th, 2013, and you can already pre-order your copy now by clicking here.
Fans in the UK and Europe look out for your opportunity to pre-order it at the new home for WWE DVDs and Blu-ray – WWEDVD.co.uk – launching this month.
Brettttttttttttttttttttttttt the Hitmannnnnnnn, HART!
Wow, I would pay $20 just for these 2 matches.
Absolutely loving the 2 match selections right here!! A few more with Dynamite would awesome but so far it looks good!!!
I hope Bret vs Will Sasso is the only WCW match just to make everyone mad.
When I think of Bret, his tag work comes to mind more than anything. I loved the Bret/Neidheart combination, power vs technical work, great compliment. Can’t remember if The Hart Foundation ever had matches with Demolition or the Brain Busters, which I’d love to see, but if they do include tag work, I’d like to see anything but their matches with The Rockers as we’ve seen those many times before. Can’t forget their work against the British Bulldogs or Killer Bees. Great stuff there. Bret’s matches in WCW, in my view, made him look pretty bad in the ring and although I expect 1 or 2 to be included they really have to be careful with those as not really any of them were great, even when he stepped back into the ring with Mr. Perfect, such a shame.
i am hopeing for some wcw stuff and matches with owen or bulldog stuff not on a dvd yet u know
I really hope the matches I suggested make the DVD.
Nice another match with Stone Cold. I really hope their’s matchs with Owen that havent been released on their cause you cant have a Bret dvd with matchs without Owen on them
I am hoping for matches with Owen 🙂
I hope we get at least 20 minutes of that dynamite match. Man this is gonna be awesome.
I guess the only negative is that we will have to hear bret put himself over again.
I don’t understand, what kind of Superstar would he be if e didn’t put himself over? It’s not a bad thing.
It’s not a bad thing, but he is retired, he doesn’t have to do it anymore we know he was a good wrestler. At least he is not as annoying as michael hayes on legends of wrestling.
I honestly think there are lots of other wrestlers with MUCH bigger egos than Bret Hart.
Well, let me tell you something BROTHER!!!
Exactly who I was thinking of! Lol.
Well, this is off to a damn great start!
Bret vs Stone Cold from South Africa Sun City
Jim ross and Owen Hart do Commentary
I’m hoping you meant Bret instead of Owen.
No, he’s right. They did the commentary for the event. Owen didn’t come back from beyond the grave to appear in a DVD commentary, it was already recorded.
Lol, Jim Ross and Owen Hart do commentary as i seen the match already,
Bret hart does not come in the equation as he’s wrestling stone cold lmao
I think I screwed up. Looking forward to match.
Two matches in and already an instant purchase! man I can’t wait to see what other classics the Hitman has in the pipelines =)
I’m just hoping Bret’s “El Dandy” promo from WCW somehow makes it on here. Classic stuff.
Very nice so far… I can tell this DVD is going to be great for “Hardcore Fans.” Lots of gems here and rare stuff are likely. Can’t wait to lay around like a bum and watch this.
This is going to be a long DVD if there’s 8+ hours of action and Bret is allowed to describe each match! One of the things I really liked about Bret’s book, so in-depth and methodical.
I was really hoping for the ladder match he had with Dynamite Kid in Stampede Wrestling , as Bret calls it one of the best matches he ever had , but I’m still happy with what’s been included
F*** i just passed out after seeing the two matches.
As long as it has Bret vs. Flair for the WWE title from Saskatoon in 1992, I’m happy.
That match was released on “Top 50 Superstars of All Time” DVD from 2010, this will be matches that are on DVD/Blu-ray for the first time.
Hope the match with Patriot from Ground Zero and the Final 4 match from IYH 13 make it.
There was a match with Savage from Japan from 93 or 94, which hopefully makes it too.
Their November 1991 match was even better. I hope that’s on it.
GREAT to see the AUSTIN match! Just as interesting is the inclusion of the Dynamite Kid because apparently there’s very legitimate heat between the two over family issues. It’ll be interesting to see if Flair makes it or more than a couple of WCW matches. If they don’t, it just goes to show the guy places more importance on his career than he does on his own family.
I’m confused. If WCW matches with Flair don’t make it on the set, how is that Bret putting himself over and slighting his family? Flair’s not related to him last time I checked.
In other words, he’s willing to forgive and forget with Dynamite Kid whom he and his family have very legitimate issues with. On the other hand, when it comes to someone knocking his career, he refuses to let it go. So, in that sense, he holds his career and personal grudges as something more important than his commitment to his family. I don’t know what that says about him as a human being, but whatever. It should be noted that Flair only ever said negative things about Hart as a receipt for Hart knocking him continuously for at least five years. If Hart was so willing to give out the insults, he should have been prepared to receive some.
Oh, okay. Thanks for clarifying that.
So far, so good. 🙂
I hope his match with Mankind from Shotgun Saturday night makes it on this set.
Agreed, from what i recall that was the only 1-on-1 match they had on television. I think if it was on a PPV and given a decent amount of time it could have been on par with Mankind vs. HBK from Mind Games.
Definitely off to a good start.
I going to set the over/under at 2 for WCW matches on this set. Where is everyone placing their bets…over or under?
vs Flair Souled Out 98
vs Luger August 98(two US title changes)
vs Savage Slamboree 98
vs Dean Malenko 1998 Nitro
vs Terry Funk on a January 2000 Thunder which was essentially Harts last match
I am obviously way too optimistic.
I hope the match vs Dynamite from the Cap Center is also on the set.
Two excellent choices right there that I’m not surprised to see. I tried to write a realistic list yesterday of what I thought would be on it and I had the South Africa match and just Dynamite Kid (Stampede Wrestling) written down. So I’m very happy so far. I know its going to be a good set!
so what do u have on your list?
Well I doubt I will get them all right, but here are a few possibilities I wrote down very quickly. I suppose if you really look at some of them they aren’t technically the best matches he has had and Bret may go down that route again, rather than focussing on ppv matches or title wins etc.
1. Bret Hart vs. Dynamite Kid (Stampede Wrestling)
2. Bad News Allen (Ladder Match, Stampede Wrestling)
3. British Bulldogs vs. The Hart Foundation (Superstars 1987, Jesse Ventura on commentary so maybe not?)
4. Andre The Giant (1989)
5. Hart Foundation vs. Twin Towers (Coliseum Video, 1989)
6. Mr. Perfect (1989)
7. Undertaker (Madison Square Garden 1992)
8. Razor Ramon (King of The Ring 1993)
9. Diesel (King of The Ring 1994)
10. Hakushi (Raw 1995)
11. Undertaker (Raw 1996)
12. Diesel (Cage Match: In Your House 6)
13. Stone Cold Steve Austin (South Africa 1996)
14. Owen Hart (Raw 1996)
15. Mankind (Shotgun Saturday Night 1997)
16. Sid (Raw 1997)
17. The Rock (Raw March 1997)
18. Stone Cold Steve Austin (Revenge of The Taker)
19. Terry Funk (Terry Funk’s Wrestlefest 1997) (If they have the rights?)
20. Macho Man Randy Savage (Slamboree 1998)
21. Booker T (Nitro 1999)
22. Sting (Mayhem 1999)
23. Goldberg (Starrcade 1999)
Meant to have Dynamite Kid (WWF 1985, from British Bulldogs VHS) on there too.
And the Final Four. D’oh!
I hope they include the Final Four match from 97
Looks awesome so far. I hope that Dynamite match is not clipped.
Most Stampede Wrestling matches are clipped I think because that’s how they were shown on television originally, because they wanted you to go and see it live. According to Bret that was the logic behind it. I saw it on one of those ‘shoot interviews’ from around 2000 I think.
Oh my God, this dvd is a must buy already. The Sun City match is brilliant. Also Dynamite Kid match on the 70’s is so sweet. He was a breath taking wrestler on that period.
What’s sun city Super Bowl ?? Never heard of that
I think its the tournament that was held in South Africa.
Sweet!!! Looks.like this set is gonna be.good! I never. Pre order but I will for this!!
