Will Hulk Hogan Controversy Get ‘Best of WCW Nitro Vol. 3’ DVD Release Pulled?

Will the ongoing Hulk Hogan controversy mean that the new “Very Best of WCW Nitro Vol. 3” DVD and Blu-ray set is pulled from release later this month?

The answer to that is no. For those also asking if any Hulk Hogan content will be removed from the DVD, the answer is also no, at least according to the early copies (pictured above and below) that we’ve had in this week from WWE’s Australian Home Video distributor, WWEDVD.com.au.

The content remains the same as originally planned, most likely because everything was finished, printed and shipped long before the Hogan situation came to be and it’s now simply too late to alter the product. We’re also hearing that the packaging of the US version quite heavily features imagery of Hogan, but luckily he isn’t shown on the front cover like he was the past two volumes.

    Article: “No”

    Come on WDN, you’re better than this clickbait crap.

    • Daniel Bee says:

      Best Buy pulled pre-orders of this DVD recently so many readers asked this question and we made an article answering it (while giving a first look at the product before it’s released). Usual stuff, bro.

  2. RCS1988 says:

    I remember they pulled the Steve Austin DVD that was originally supposed to be released in late 07, but was postponed to remove 1 or 2 matches that Austin had with Benoit.

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      they did the same with the rocks 2008 dvd. that originally was supposed to be released in 07 cause it was gonna have there fully loaded 2000 match but was delayed to 2008

    • David says:

      The Austin DVD also had Benoit comments as well, so WWE had to delay it. I believe the match from Smackdown in Edmonton was suppose to be included.

      Also i think the Summerslam Anthology was suppose to be released late-2007 but WWE was deciding what to do with Benoit matches and was delayed til August 2008.

  3. Brian D says:

    I’ve looked at the match listing for Nitro volume 3 and half the matches don’t look like they’re the best or the very best. And since there are no Rey Mysterio matches for poor reasons, another reason I will not tune into it. Btw, the front cover doesn’t look like it was done with much effort like the previous one was but that’s a minor issue.

  4. Nicolas Hébert says:

    Remember where was Hogan place on the Top 50 Superstars of all time DVD? #22 come on!!! Hogan is a Top 5 guy in wrestling history with Austin, HBK, Bret Hart and Macho Man Randy Savage. That was stupid!!!

    • Brad Attitude says:

      Not when it comes to skill he isn’t but as far as name value then yes he’s probably top 5 or 10 for sure

  5. RabidHeat says:

    I understand not putting out a Hogan-centred release, but to not include him in anthologies of the histories of entire organisations is ridiculous. Nobody is going to be horrified if they just pug away Hogan matches in the middle of DVD content – just don’t put him on the cover. We’ve had enough revisionist history with all the Benoit stuff, we don’t need Hogan completely erased from DVD content too.

  6. Alex says:

    Thank GOD. the new nitro bluray is the one I’ve been looking forward to the most out of all the wrestling DVDs this year

  7. THOMAS says:

    I will not be buying the Best Of WCW Monday Nitro Volume 3 dvd set at all.

  8. John says:

    Not surprised at all, pulling him just because he said the n word is stupid
