Breaking: WWE ‘Beast In The East’ Releasing on DVD – Dark Matches Included

July 22, 2015 by Daniel Bee

WWE Beast in the East - Finn Bálor Streamers has just learned that “Beast In The East”, the WWE Network special which aired earlier this month from Japan, will be made available on Home Video.

In a similar situation as with Elimination Chamber 2015, the DVD looks to be planned as a UK exclusive. That UK release is now confirmed, while a release to Australia is expected later in some capacity. As of writing, it is not likely to hit the domestic United States market.

We can confirm that the “Beast In The East” DVD will feature the 2 hour special and in its extras will include the previously unseen “dark matches”, which will be exclusive to Home Video.

Below is a first look at the planned cover artwork.

    Would be good if they added Shawn Michaels vs. Ric Flair from the Raw in Tokyo (February 2005) as an extra. Been wanting on official release of that match for years, and the Live in the UK releases always had bonus matches from previous tours. Fingers crossed!

    • Harry Farrow says:

      There is the Japan exclusive dvd, WWE Live in Japan 2005.

      • Vintage Simon says:

        This is true. But it’s pretty hard to come by and very expensive, so would still like to see that match released on a wider scale.

    if only those NXT specials will get this treat.

    Boring boring boring 🙁

    I like the cover n I live in the UK, but I only buy Blu-Ray’s now.. Plus the 2 dark matches look really boring!

    Hopefully the Full content list will be amazing & if they include the following matches then I may get it;

    • Vs Jeff Hardy – Backlash 2002
    • Vs The Undertaker – No Mercy 2002 – HIAC
    • Vs The Rock – Summerslam 2002
    • Vs Goldberg – WM XX

    • RabidHeat says:

      I’ve got a feeling the above WILL be all the extra content, especially as it’s only going to DVD.

      • Mark D says:

        If we’re dreaming about extras… Brock Lesnar vs. Masa Chono vs. Kazuyuki Fujita for the IWGP Title would have been a really cool.

      As the late Rick James once said: “Cocaine is a hell of a drug.”

      • Vintage Simon says:

        @SCSA: If you’re really that bothered about those matches, why not just get the Here Comes The Pain DVD? They’re all on there.

        • SCSA says:

          I know, but sorry.. I forgot to include that if they decide to bring it out as a Blu-Ray too w/the matches I mentioned, then yeah I’d buy it.

          • RCS1988 says:

            Just convert it to blu-ray then. I know a lot of people that transferred their DVD’s and the stuff hey recorded off TV to Blu-ray.

            • SCSA says:

              Dunno how to do that!

            • LP1 says:

              The problem with transfering DVD’s to BR is you’re not upgrading the quality. It’s still the same DVD quality. The only way to record a show onto BR in full HD quality is if you record a show directly off of your cable/satellite converter box. And even then you’re only getting 1080i, not the full 1080p that real BR’s produce. No point in transfering DVD’s to BR. All you’re doing is just making a copy of what you already have.

    • Stephen says:

      Why would they put a bunch of Brock Lesnar matches on a DVD of Network exclusive event? For the record @SCSA the full card listing is as follows

      Chris Jericho v Neville
      Tamina v Paige v Nikki Bella (Divas title)
      Brock Lesnar v Kofi Kingston
      Finn Balor v Kevin Owens (NXT title)
      John Cena/Dolph Ziggler v Kane/King Barrett
