– The verdict on the “Best of WWE 1985-2004” DVD series we’ve been reporting about recently, according to Silver Vision, is that it’s NOT planned for this year, instead stating that it was a project being discussed within WWE.
To speculate, we would guess it was planned at one point and placed on WWE’s 2012 schedule. The reason we believe so is because very specific details were shared with Cue Entertainment magazine. Those being that the series would be comprised of four volumes, covering WWE eras across 1985 to 2004, released at the same time, and each a 4-disc set.
Also noteworthy was that it was mentioned along with the likes of confirmed titles such as The Rock’s DVD, The Story of Edge, and Clash of the Champions. One could also speculate the information was shared prematurely and perhaps now the rumored Attitude Era DVD is coming instead. Last year we saw first hand having WWE’s full year Home Video schedule that titles frequently change.
– Joey Styles clarified on Twitter this week that the upcoming “Biggest Matches in ECW History” DVD will feature only original ECW footage, and not WWE’s version which ran from 2006. This comes as no big surprise since the synopsis for the DVD referenced ECW’s tenure as ending in 2001. Joey may also be hosting the feature.
The new ECW DVD (also on Blu-ray) is available to pre-order at this link.

Whilst he is not certain of when the DVD will be released, he referred to September, which is when we’ve been reporting it’s due.
