Earlier this month we broke the news that WWE has another DVD on The Undertaker planned for 2015, but that it won’t be featuring a full blown career documentary:
WrestlingDVDNews.com has since learned that for this title the company plans to re-release and extend the 2012 DVD and Blu-ray set, “Undertaker: The Streak – 20-0”.
“Undertaker: The Streak – 21-1 (RIP Edition)” is slated to be released as both a regular edition and a limited edition in special coffin-shaped packaging!
As you may recall, the original 2012 Home Video featured a mini-documentary on the Streak, all of Undertaker’s WrestleMania matches up to that point, and a few additional extras.
The follow up is slated to complete the Streak themed set with Undertaker’s WrestleMania 29 match against CM Punk, WrestleMania 30 match against Brock Lesnar in which the Streak was finally broken, and quite possibly an extended version of the original documentary.
As of right now, WWE has the “RIP Edition” DVD box set scheduled to hit stores worldwide toward the end of this year, likely made available just in time for the holiday season.

I think he should have fought the rock, austin, angle and jericho before losing to cena. that would have made more since than wrestling triple h three timed and hbk twice. and cena beating hI’m would be like hogan beating andre so wrestlemania 33 would have been the perfect platform to do that
I’ll probably get the set to have his matches with Punk and Lesnar. But this set makes the first one pointless because what they could have and should have done is have all his WM matches on one set as opposed to having multiple sets. Or better yet instead of having a Streak set, just put all his WM matches when they release a definitive documentary set after he retires. WWE knows there is big money in that.
Why not wait till he’s retired to release a proper set. He’s probably got 1 more left in him if Sting agrees.
I think he’s competing at WM32 whether Sting agrees which I hope or not. If Sting doesn’t agree, there’s other options for Taker. Jericho, Cena are 2 of them.
Why would it be based on 21-1 when he is 22-1 now? I just don’t get that at all.
Let me amend that with saying, if they were going to stop at 21-1 then this DVD should have come out last year.
so that they can milk more $ by having the streak 22-1 next year
Because the Streak was broken at 21-1? Which is now quite an iconic figure in WWE since the Mania 30 moment.
His win/loss record might be 22-1, but that doesn’t make it the Streak!
The Bray Wyatt match has nothing to do with the Streak. It ended before that.
Absolutely wasteful of disc space and revenue. We don’t give a rat’s ass about the Streak anymore. Give us the god-damn interview with Undertaker, PLEASE.
He is going to be a guest on Austin’s podcast, which will air on the Network at some point. I would rather see unreleased TV taping matches.
To be fair, RCS1988, you’d rather see unreleased TV taping matches on every release that ever comes out.
I don’t request it on every release that is announced.
no thanks, already always the streak DVD that came out a few years ago plus I have the wrestlemania matches he had afterwards
This is a GOOD thing because they’re not going to blow the Undertaker doc early. Taker’s on his last legs, why not wait just one more year or whatever it’ll be to get a full career documentary from the man himself, possibly with a HOF induction included? They can do this one, the Taker career doc, and years down the road do a rare match collection or something to cap it all off. Everyone wins, you just have to be patient.
Not sure why people are complaining. Actually, I do know why, some people just need to complain. Here’s the deal, WWE released a 15-0 DVD set years ago and everyone knew that it wouldn’t be the last set until the streak was over. Then came the 20-0 set. Again, people knew that it wouldn’t be the last time they released a streak set until either A)he retired undefeated or B)the streak ended. So now that set is finally here. All 21 streak matches plus the match that ended the streak. This is now the definitive streak set. Some of you are acting surprised, like he had no idea this was coming. I mean, really. If you already bought the 15-0 and 20-0 sets then you should’ve known there would be another set coming. So if you want to buy this new one, go right ahead. If you don’t want to buy it, don’t. No one’s forcing you.
And for people wanting a full on documentary, you know that’s not going to happen until Taker is completely retired. You get your hopes up for something that you should know is not going to happen and then you get upset when it doesn’t. A Taker documentary IS coming… when he retires.
I think people are upset because they were looking forward to a brand new release. Instead, it’s a re-release from just three years ago, with an additional two matches.
As an aside, I’d say that 15-0 and 20-0 were very different releases. 15-0 was a single disc, mainly featuring highlights; whereas 20-0 was a full three-disc set, with a documentary, and the entire bouts – so it was definitely justified as a separate release.
What an absolute kick in the teeth to any loyal fan that bought the original edition. It’s like when musicians release deluxe versions of their albums six months later than the original release with 10 new tracks on a second disc – the true fan who bought it the day of release gets screwed.
The Streak set should should just have been done when it ended…period.
I’m a big Taker fan, so I purchased the original Streak set the first week it was released (the Kmart version that also came with his Deadliest Matches compilation.) Felt The Streak DVD could have been better, but I didn’t want to see a re-release. Definitely not picking this version up.
I would rather have a set with these matches. I would pay anything for this.

You’d pay ANYTHING for a DVD containing a squash match between the Undertaker and Mario Mancini? Lol! I thought that was kinda funny.
I’m not a fan of anything from that Over the Edge show being put on DVD.
I wonder what they’ll do for the limited edition coffin.. I got the 2K14 phenom edition video game. It came with a tin coffin an autographed card and only the first disc of the Streak blu ray
I’m a little disappointed that we aren’t getting a Taker documentary set this year or an unreleased matches set, but I will be content with this “re-release” if they do the following:
1. Go back & put the matches up to WM18 in their original form (with no blurs or censoring of WWF). I feel as if they will just add Taker/Punk & Taker/Lesnar and will include the edited versions of those matches (like the original set had).
2. Extend the original (which seemed useless & pointless the first go-around, IMO) documentary with comments from newer talent, with new insight, etc. Just extend it & make it a lot better than it originally was.
3. Contact Metallica & whomever owns Johnny Cash’s estate & pay them to use “For Whom The Bell Tolls” & “Ain’t No Grave” for the WrestleMania 27 entrances. Also get the rights to “Rollin'” from Limp Bizkit for WM X-7 & WM18. This will really add appeal to the set, it seems like it wouldn’t, but it really would (for me, at least).
4. Include Wyatt/Taker (at least as a Blu-Ray Exclusive, if there even will be a Blu-Ray edition), along with the epic 5-minute promo for it (that was not included on the WM31 DVD or Blu-Ray unfortunately). This isn’t a “streak” match, but I still think it should be included. The set does have RIP in the title though, so maybe they don’t want to show that Taker will continue past the loss to Lesnar.
5. The first edition had 4 discs included with the DVD version, make this edition have 5. Use the 3 hours for that disc to include the segments that set up each WM match.
If they do all of the above, I’m sure this DVD will sell, even though it is just a re-release of a 2012 DVD.
I’m absolutely with you there, regarding the Metallical and Johnny Cash songs from 27..if there ever were entrances and music for those entrances that played a major roles in the storyline for a match, there you have it..
Would be the only reason for me to get this, to have these entrances complete and unedited.. lovet the theme of “The last Outlaw”…and I was sooooo disappointed that For whom the bell tolls and Ain’t no Grave was replaced with their usual themes…and that comes from one, that loves the Deadman’s theme and Motörhead.. 😉
Exactly, the music choices really added to the story for the match. They were both used purposely, they weren’t just used to be used (WWE had to pay to use them then, they wouldn’t pay to use a song if they didn’t plan to use it for a good reason).
I was really disappointed with the edits for WM27 as well (it was the first thing I checked when I bought my copy of The Streak). Maybe WWE can shell out some money here & redeem themselves.
And now the first Streak set is utterly utterly worthless…
Save your money for next year’s Streak set when Taker has his last match……probably….
You mean the 15-0 set is utterly utterly worthless? Maybe. Maybe it is. Although I don’t know how there could be another streak set next year when the streak is over.
The only way I’m gonna get this set is A) All matches are gonna have to be unblurred unlike last set. And B) Some of these matches have to have alternate commentary with the Undertaker on it. But that’s just me…
I think the limited edition should include an autograph photo of the undertaker..
Urgh. Lazy… Even by WWE standards.
I passed on The Streak last time and only got it because it was dirt cheap from Fremantle. I’ll probably do the same here but surely this set will be incomplete since it won’t have all Taker’s WM matches?
Really disappointed actually; was hoping for a nice Unreleased set
what a huge disappointment, if that Undertaker release will be that one..
Talk about trying to squeeze the last drop of blood out of a stone. I love the Cm Punk match and while the Lesnar match is a history on its own, both are really not that much worth having to re-release the Deadman’s wrestlemania matches for 5000th time.
Just make this a Network special and let’s have the long over dued and much more expected documentary and career overlook with rare and classics blended together with commentary from Mark himself, and Mick Foley, HHH, Shawn etc.
They’re probably thinking: let’s do both (and maybe that it’s not quite time yet for the full Taker doc 😛 ).
The Streak was special and you could argue that the previous DVD set should be completed since it was released at an odd time and considering the Streak was ultimately broken.
The Streak indeed was special.. and I agree with you that it should indeed have been completed…with the Cm Punk match, hence they should have waited a year and made the title: 21-0.
I really don’t get this release, other than: let’s try make more money on doing absolutely nothing fresh.
Then again: these recent years, I get less and less of the current product that wwe has turned out to be..not only the Streak that died for me at xXx.. oh well..have to see what they do with a doc in the future..
Anyone know if this is gonna be another 4 disc set? Hope so.
No word yet on specifics (# of discs, a Blu-ray edition…)
