Silver Vision, the official licensee for WWE DVDs in Europe, have plans in place to stock WWE produced movies from now on – both on DVD and Blu Ray. It was announced today the first of which will be the WWE Film “Legendary” starring John Cena. This title is available to pre-order on DVD and Blu Ray on their website now and will be in stock come September.
Speaking of Silver Vision, two brand new Tagged Classics DVDs (re-releases of previously “deleted” WWF titles) are now in stock on their website.
First, the 2001 release Best of RAW Vol. 1 & 2 DVD set makes a come back in the form of a Tagged Classic. Like the original release this is a 2 Disc set.
Second, the 2002 release nWo: Back in Black returns to DVD in the Tagged Classics range, and this one is packed with two re-released WWF videos titles on the second DVD disc – Razor Ramon: Oozing Machismo (1994) & A Video Tribute to Big Daddy Cool Diesel (1996).
Due to winning a legal dispute in the UK Silver Vision have the right to re-release their DVD & VHS titles on to DVD in their entirety, which were removed from production in 2002. This means there are no edits or blurring in regards to “WWF” references on the Tagged Classics series. However this ruling specifically applies to the UK distributor and their old releases, so does not affect other markets.
Dear John, I’ve just returned to Ca. from Ok.. I spent the weekend visiting with LeeRoy Smith, Exec. Director of USWHOF, in Stillwater and he had just received a copy of your latest movie “Legendary” . I enjoyed it very much.I always seem to catch your show on Mon. nights, I’ve always thought pro wrestling to be a little much. Until she passed away, my husband’s grandmother always thought he wrestled professional. I don’t seem to get a break, first my husband, then our sons, and now our grandsons. Thank you, for giving amateur wrestling a boost. Lucille McCann, widow of Terry McCann
