We’re hearing this week that WWE’s new documentary on the Dudley Boyz, to be featured on “Straight Outta Dudleyville: The Legacy of the Dudley Boyz”, has been completed!
That documentary will be the main feature of the new Dudley Boyz DVD set on the way for 2016 and will have a runtime of approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Similar to the recent “Owen: Hart of Gold” and “Sting: Into The Light” WWE DVDs, the new compilation will include a documentary of that length, additional stories and interviews in the extras, along with a collection of matches — 7 hours of material on DVD and 8 hours on Blu-ray.
Early indications are that the documentary will be centered around the Dudleys’ return to WWE in Brooklyn the night after SummerSlam 2015, with talking points branching off that about all aspects of the tag team’s life and career. As for the matches, expect to see picks from ECW and WWE.
The Dudley Boyz Home Video is scheduled for April next year is among the next WWE DVD/Blu-ray titles ready to go up for pre-order on major retail sites. Be on the look out, or as always just keep checking back with WrestlingDVDNetwork.com for the latest.

I get a little board with the 3hr long doc. I think they can cover most of what we need to know in less time. Most of this are going to double as network production, so you know. I buy them for the matches anyways. I would rather have 1hr docs and more matches.
you can easly have both like bret hart bio from 05 or ric flair, 08 i think even jericho i just think there making them so short cause they figure fans watch on the network then get the sets
seams like ever since i wanna say triple h dvd/bluray which was 2 hours pluss that every single bio since then has been a hour or less warrior daniel bryan shield sting owen hart. why!!! JUST WHY!!! >.< !!!!
I am on the fence about getting the Dudley Boys set, I am not a big fan of them but I enjoy watching matches….
Seems like they’re no longer putting effort into documentaries like they use to. The Jerry Lawler was the last one they really did, although it was shorter than I thought it would be. But all these hour long documentaries, I already have an idea of how they’ll be done. It’s like they know they’ll just be on the network soon, so no need to go all out. I’d rather them continue to put in the effort and either just sell them, and/or just wait a long time before putting them on the network.
Right. Short docs mean no effort. But you said the shortest doc (Jerry Lawler) was the last time they put effort into one. Makes total sense to me
WWE should really reach out to TNA, and work out a deal that gives WWE access to TNAs tape library. The Dudleys were there for so long, that a career retrospective will feel incomplete with no matches from TNA. As a thank you to TNA, WWE can just tell TNA, that if they want to release a Kurt Angle DVD set, they can handpick Angle matches from WWEs tape library. It’s a win win situation.
How about just having Bubba convince Velvet Sky to make the jump to WWE! Let the pigeons loose!!
That will never happen.
Might as well just download these lazy 1 hour documentaries than spend money on them.
What’s so lazy about it? What if it’s really good? Ever think of that?
One hour is not enough time to tell a full story for someone who have been in the business for two or more decades. That’s ridiculous. I wanna hear stories, moments and the different feuds they had in their careers. Not just whim thru their careers and cut out all the good sh*t. That’s been the problem with these short docos on guys who have been around forever.
How do you know an hour isn’t enough? Have you seen it? Tell me what you’d like highlighted. The 4 years they were in ECW yelling at the fans? That’ll get old after 5 minutes. The TLC matches? We’ve heard those storiess non stop for 15 years. The TNA years they can’t talk about? Their mediocre comeback in the last few months? Seems to me an hour is more than enough time
Guys like Sting and Owen Hart deserve more than a 1 hour documentary. They had long careers with much to tell. Sorry but one hour isn’t enough for guys who’ve been in the biz for a long time.
I know you’re one of those fans who’ll agree with everything WWE decides what direction they’ll go in but for long time fans it’s an insult. Imagine if Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, Terry Funk, Hulk Hogan etc only had one hour documentaries for their careers. What a joke that would be!
yeah I have to agree that these 1 hour documentaries are pretty lazy on WWE’s part. Since they started doing it after Warrior’s death, these short docos have been average or just not very good. Warrior’s was the only good one since he didn’t have a very long career and were able to fit in all his big moment as well as his beginnings.
Why would it be a joke? None of us know any of the content of the doc. Why does everyone freak out as soon as it’s announced that a doc isn’t over an hour? Why can’t we just wait to actually see it before we decide that WWE is lazy?
Because one hour is not enough time to cover a wrestlers beginnings, middle and end. One hour just skips thru a lot if things and only highlights the big moments. It’s common sense dude!
Since WWE did the 1 hour documentaries, they’ve all sucked.
This just sounds like your opinion that they sucked. I think they have been doing a good job lately. Common sense doesn’t say anything about an hour not being enough time. Common sense says quality counts more than quantity. Again, you can’t just discount this doc because it’s only an hour without seeing it first. Let’s watch it and then we can have an intelligent discussion about it.
Actually I can discount it due to all the other one hour documentaries being too short and uninteresting.
The Kliq – Passable but still too short.
Sting – Too short for a guy who’s been in the business for nearly 30 years.
Owen Hart – Average
Warrior: Ultimate Legend: Pretty good since his career was short.
Out of all those it’s all been pretty average and fans have made it well known that the one he timeframe is too short. It’s an insult to long time fans and dvd/collectors.
Um actually I think those have all been quality. So you’re incorrect in your opinions
Nah they’ve all been average or below at most. Nobody even talks about them, ppl just buy those sets for the matches.
I was right about you. You’ll agree on whatever direction WWE go ahead with. Continue kissing ass. Everybody but you agrees the one hour docos are pretty crap
So stop buying them if they’re going to be crap and you’re just going to complain. No one said you had to buy all the docs that come out. Everyone here talks such a big game but at the end of the day you’ll just buy the dvd anyway. So spend your money just to be miserable. Makes sense to me. I’m sure WWE appreciates it!
It’s called downloading so I don’t have to buy them now that WWE has taken the lazy route with their documentaries.
Ever heard of downloading dumbass? Course you haven’t.
Oh nice! I’m glad the wifi is good in your mom’s basements
Got anything else to add than give childish comebacks? Probably not because you’re probably some 13yo hifing behind a computer … Little sh*t
What does hifing mean? Is that when you spend your whole life never touching a woman? Because I’m sure you know all about that!
Means I pounded your mom
Who’s got the childish comebacks now? Loser!
Whatever you say little child.
Bro you’re using a movie’s running time as the only justification to illegally pirate it. You aren’t exactly coming across as the adult in this conversation.
Well it’s either pirate it or not buy since it’s not worth spending my time & money on as it’s clear WWE has chosen to take the lazy route. then again I would expect you or your intelligence to understand.
You do realize you’re spending your time downloading and watching it right? It would make more sense if you didn’t watch it at all. Then you’d have some worth in your argument and really make a stand. Also you should probably start using spell check. And maybe an education. And maybe move out of your mom’s basement. Loser!
Wow typical comeback there from a four year old. Talk to the hand dumbass!
Keep up with the one hour doc and I’m better off downloading them than spend my cash on it. Ain’t worth my money.
Talk to the hand? You sound like the four year old. Or a sassy woman. You keep proving my point that you’re a loser!
You’ve just proven to me that a complete dumba** who likes to kiss a**. Keep kissing WWE’s a** with their one hour bullsh*ts.
Bet you’re just another stupid casual fan! Go do something worthwhile with ur pathetic life, boy!
Aw I made the loser mad. Loser!
Yeh I expose you for bring the fraud that u are d**khead. stupid casual fan.
Keep talking sh*t while hiding behind your computer tough guy. We both know you’re a p*ssy!
Ha ha Loser!
Keep hiding behind your computer scared little boy.
Was what I was afraid of with the Dudleyz doc: centered around their WWE return, which I really have’nt cared for. As of now, interest in this release has reached a low point with this news, so depending on what matches are on there might save it, but if contents of doc mainly is about following them on their return match, I really could care less.
Also, a very big disappointment, if they do not reach out for histories from the One Tough Little Bastard Spike. And like I mentioned another time: if they do not make this release at least a TV-14, if not MA, then it is not about Dudleyz. Period.
To clarify, it sounds like it is centered around their WWE return in Brooklyn (the night, backstage footage and the like probably) with coverage of the rest of their career on top – not just a documentary about what they’ve done since they came back.
There’s a difference. 🙂
fair enough.. judgment can of course only be made completely, when full content is avaliable.. we’ll see in the new year, what’s Testified, oh my brother.. 😉
Yeah, think along the lines of the Daniel Bryan documentary or the Warrior one. It is built around one specific moment, but it branches off using that to tell a complete story of their entire career, spliced career. I actually think that style has been done pretty well on the last few releases, and would work well for the Dudleys. Think of it like this, say, if they randomly decided to do a Jushin Thunder Liger documentary, (which will never happen) and they start by talking about his debut in NXT in Brooklyn, they would obviously circle that with his entire career, just using that one moment as a branching point to past, present, and future. It’s a storytelling technique.
*spliced together, not career
