– Survivor Series 2012 is released tomorrow to the United States. It’s available on DVD and Blu-ray formats. You can get hold your copy now by clicking here.
– According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com, WWE are not only attempting to source the rumored World of Sport era match for the new Bret Hart: Dungeon Collection DVD, but New Japan footage also. However, time looks to be running out with the March 2013 release looming. WWE are reportedly uncertain of the condition the footage will be in and whether or not any sourced material will require clean up or remastering, and therefore they may soon move on without it. Regarding Volume 2 of the The Best of Nitro, the cruiserweights are rumored to have more of a focus on the DVD this time around.
– If you haven’t yet checked out nWo: The Revolution which was released last month, you can watch the intro to the documentary below. Buy it on DVD or Blu-ray.

Below is the cover shot for Night of Champions 2012 on Blu-ray, which will be exclusive to Europe. As reported, FremantleMedia will also be releasing selected titles from the back catalog of WWE DVDs, and one such title looks to be Royal Rumble 2012 which was classified by the BBFC today.
I’m waiting almost impatiently to know the official match list for the Bret Hart Dungeon Collection disc. My purchase depends on if the Hart-Flair WWE title match from Saskatoon is included.
Well its a collection of unreleased matches and since that’s already been released its pretty unlikely they will include it. It would have been a great choice but its already been released on DVD.
I’ve never seen the Hart/Flair match from Saskatoon released? Where is it?
The final four should make its way on to dvd his match with jean pierre lafitte from iyh 3, a rare bulldog match a rare perfect match a rare flair match, and lots more better be jammed packed of matches. Like 22 would make me happy
i have to see classic hart foundation matches vs the killer bees from the old wwf coliseum videos and snme nov 1986.
I don’t want to see any Hart Foundation matches. I’ve seen enough and the only really good ones are against the British Bulldogs and the Brain Busters.
The only Bret Hart stuff that hasn’t yet been released that I really want to see are:
-Stampede footage vs. Davey Boy, vs. Dynamite, vs. Bad News
-his WCW debut match
-some of his Nitro 1999 matches (2/99 vs. Booker, 9/99 Sting/Luger vs. Hogan/Bret, 9/99 Bret/Flair vs. Sting/Luger/DDP, 10/99 vs. Sting, 10/99, 11/99 Ladder match, 11/99 vs. Jarrett)
-his Austin matches in Kuwait and South Africa
-his match against Andre
-his match against Savage in Japan
-Invasion 1992 classic match against Ric Flair
Now that would make for an awesome DVD!
I was watching the first Main Event from 1988 with Hogan/Andre and Strike Force vs Hart Foundation was the last match, but the match was still in progress when NBC signed off. Anyone know if the full match does exist on tape? i read reports saying they stopped filming and the only people that saw the full match were the people in attendance that night.
Was a great match too and but they cut it. If the full match does exist would be a nice gem for the Bret DVD.
i want to see the Hart Foundation’s first tag team championship win.
that is not on DVD anywhere.
as well as thier loss to strike force.
i would love to see bret’s steel cage match vs yokozuna,his match vs diesel from wrestlefest 94,and matches vs kamala and rick martel.
As well as the first ever HF/Bulldogs match from the Philly Spectrum.
I may be in the minority, but I would like to see his tag match with Dynamite vs tv jobbers (WWF debut) and his MSG debut vs Rene Goulet.
As long as all of his debut matches appear, then I say these could as well.
is that night of champioms blu-ray region b locked
I’m going to be picking up the Survivor Series Blu-ray tonight for sure.
Cant wait for the hitman dvd! I’m dying to find out the matches. Anyone know a round about time they will release the info?
The only two matches I really want on the Bret Hart set are Bret vs. Diesel from their in your house cage match and The Final 4 in your house where Bret wins the WWF title. If those 2 are on it I’ll buy it just for them alone.
Between the Bret set and the Best of In Your House coming up I’ll be amazed if these two matches aren’t released.
Several of the Amazon product pages also list the Blu-Ray exclusives. As somebody else said, however, if Fremantle sell these at £18 / £30, I simply won’t be buying any. Personally, I think £23 is a little too steep for the bio Blu-Rays, so another £7 on top would be laughable. I sincerely hope those ‘exclusive Blu-Ray extra’ logos aren’t printed onto the covers.
I think the “exclusive Blu-ray extras” logo will be printed on just for it to stand out…SIlver Vision use to just put a strip at the bottom.
Prices are pretty steep…i import the exclusive UK WWE Blu-rays but i don’t think i will if the ppvs are going to cost £18, that comes out to about $30 Canadian plus shipping, before with Silver Vision usually came out to about $18-$20 including shipping which is not bad.
But with Amazon prices always fluctuate, so they might decrease come closer to release.
Simon, check out Sainsburys – events for £13 on bluray and Attitude Era / Raw for £23 🙂
Sweet, it would be awesome if WWE could secure some AJPW for others also. Could you imagine a AJPW vs WWE disc….
Instead of wasting effort on getting Japanese and English footage for this Bret Hart set, why not just use the stuff in WWE’s catalog to fill it out? Who cares if Bret hates certain guys (Flair and Hogan) when we all know that using that footage will only make the set sell more units and be more balanced? Furthermore, what does it say about a performer who’s greatest moments ALL came in footage owned by the company (Stampede, WWE, and WCW), when they can’t find enough fresh footage to fill out a 3-DVD set within all that footage?
Can anyone even say they’ve seen any Bret Hart footage from England or Japan that was legitimately noteworthy? Because, if anyone has seen Japanese footage, they know that finding perfect DVD quality Japanese footage certainly can’t be an issue as this article suggests. Just look on YouTube and you’ll find plenty of 1980s and 1990s Japanese footage that looks every bit or better than some WWE footage from the same time. And that’s on YouTube! Certainly NJPW has it!
Instead of worrying about this guy’s massive ego, just give the fans the best possible set! If he has a problem with that, what’s he going to do about it? Worst case scenario he throws another tantrum. It’s not like that’s never happened with him before.
I’ve got a 6 DVD set titled “Hart Family in Japan” and Bret’s work with Tiger Mask is pretty special from my view. Bret does some great work on the set and believe a match from it would be worthy in his upcoming set
I don’t get the Hogan/Flair stuff. It was commented on in other aticles on here too, people saying Bret hates Hogan and Flair. I don’t know if that’s true but what difference does it make? Bret’s biggest match with Flair would’ve been when he beat him for the WWF title and that was already released on DVD (and the Souled Out match was ok but not great).. His only match against Hogan I know of was the match on Nitro that was already put on DVD. You don’t need Hogan or Flair for this set anyway.
Let’s be objective here.
There should DEFINITELY be two Flair matches on this and POSSIBLY a tag match with Hogan. The tag match for historical reasons at best and because it’s Hogan. The 1991 Flair match was their best match against each other and easily the best TV and Coliseum Bret singles match from his I-C era that’s not been released. The other Flair match that DEFINITELY needs to be here is the Souled Out 1998 match because it was a critically acclaimed very good match that was also Bret’s FIRST WCW match. First matches in a territory are always special and that’s without taking into account that this was legitimately a good match as well.
So if it’s being done properly do Flair and Hogan make the Bret set? DEFINITELY for Flair, while it would be nice but not necessary in the case of Hogan.
Did you leave a comment or did someone just do an anonymous shit on the internet? You might need to clean your keyboard. Once again I really don’t understand the negative comments about this DVD. If you hate the idea of the DVD that much then you really don’t have to spend your money on it. Personally I think it will be one of the best they’ve ever done. But there really is no reason why a Ric Flair match MUST be included. Neither man was happy with their matches and truth be told they were neither man’s best. For the record, Chris Jericho chose matches and included a Japan match and other rare footage on his DVD. He also didn’t inlcude a Ric Flair match. That dirty rotten son of a bitch! If it’s being done ‘properly’ I would say Bret Hart and the wwe would be the best judge of the quality of his matches. After reading some of the most ridiculous comments since news about this DVD surfaced, I’m certainly glad those people are not at the controls for this one. Its in good hands with Bret and I will be buying the blu ray at the first opportunity.
Chris Jericho is far more entertaining on every conceivable level than Bret Hart was on his best day so it stands to reason he has more material to pick from. But, MOST IMPORTANT is that Jericho’s only had 1 DVD release. Why would he pick a Flair match considering that he never had a milestone match against Flair in much the same way Hart did (I-C title match, first WWF title, and WCW debut)? On the other hand, this will be Hart’s third and proof that they’re really having to scrape the bottom of the barrel in finding quality material to put on this is that they’re reaching out to put NJPW and English footage. He did NOTHING of note in either place. The November 1991 Flair match is the best unreleased Hart match from his I-C singles run and their best match against each other. The Souled Out 1998 match was a very good, critically acclaimed WCW Hart debut match. Both are very worthy of inclusion on this set. WWE should just include them and if Bret wants to complain, then let him.
Shut up and don’t buy it .
I don’t even know why you guys are even bothering arguing with someone who refuses to give themselves a name. People who are too lazy to use anything other than ‘anonymous’ don’t deserve any recognition.
That’s a gorgeous cover
see once again people are bitching about covers
Not sure what thread you’re reading, but there isn’t one complaint at all about the cover here.
How do you know he thinks people are complaining? “b*****” could mean anything.
Maybe he thinks they are going “bat poop”, because they like it so much. Maybe it means people are “bewildered” at how great it looks. Perhaps people are “barfing” in delight because it is literally the greatest piece of artwork ever posted to the internet! You don’t know!
The pricing for the UK DVD and Blu Ray releases on amazon.co.uk… that’s someones idea of a joke right? I’m not paying £30 for feature Blu rays or £18 for the pay per views, no way no how.
I think I’d rather wait a bit longer for the footage than rushing it out. I’d like to see World of Sport and Japan matches on the set. If you had that and Stampede, WWF and WCW then that’s good use of libraries and should make the set quite definitive in a way. I wonder if there are any matches from Puerto Rico they could use. Throw in the almost ECW match with Terry Funk then that is a great way to follow the career of the Hitman with unreleased matches, because obviously most big moments will not be eligible for the set. I’m really looking forward to it because it sounds like a lot of thought is being put into this one, as with all of Bret’s DVDs you would have to say.

Are WWE careless with their DVDs now or what? They’ve been screwing up the listings for the last couple DVDs, and now they put Mysterio/Sin Cara vs PTP on the artwork? That match didn’t even happen. Whatever WWE, stop being so lazy!
Rey and Sin Cara teamed with International Airstrike and brodus clay to face Prime time players,tensai and primo and epico
I know they did, but it still wasn’t a regular tag team match like they listed it as.
