October 11, 2011 by Daniel Bee

We can confirm WWE TLC 2011 has been added to the schedule as only a DVD edition (released January), so as of now there is no Blu-ray planned for North America.

This joins Night of Champions, Hell in a Cell, Vengeance and Survivor Series – all upcoming PPV releases that are not currently down for Blu-ray production in the home market.


WWEShop is an offering a package for the Shawn Michaels VS. Bret Hart DVD which includes an exclusive T-Shirt of the “Greatest Rivalries” release. Get yours by clicking the image below.

Speaking of the HBK/Hart DVD, you can get your hands on it in the UK this week when ordering here. For the USA the street date is October 25th, but if you don’t want to wait until then there is an eBay seller that has it now and the auction (item number ) ends tomorrow!


The Australian WWE DVD distributor has decided to release all upcoming “main feature” titles in standard DVD packaging (no inside artwork) going forward, rather than the fold-out digipacks. Silver Vision (UK) released a few titles this way but received some backlash from their customers.

CM Punk was in Australia last week for the SummerSlam 2011 DVD launch. Here’s a pic!


A new WWE Tagged Classics DVD title has been revealed for the UK.

This sees the re-release to DVD of WWF Mick Foley: Hard Knocks & Cheap Pops, and Undertaker: This Is My Yard.

In digital news, WWE has released their latest Home Video title Ladder Match 2: Crash & Burn online in volume format. Each disc from the DVD set is being released as one volume, which is noteworthy because they are usually edited versions.

Each volume is priced at $14.99 on Amazon Instant Video and $12.99 on the Playstation Network, so obviously a lot more expensive to download than to buy the physical DVD set.

In other news, OMG! Top 50 Moments in WWE History is now available to stream on Netflix.

Also, Triple H’s new movie “Inside Out” is out to rent and buy on the majority of digital stores.


And finally, here’s the trailer for the next WWE movie “The Reunion” starring John Cena.

    @Straightedge47 & @DanielBee I hope that SIlver Vision are going to release the upcoming WWE PPV events in the amarray dvd cases especially the events like Hell In A Cell 2010, Survivor Series 2010 & Bragging Rights 2010 along with Royal Rumble 2011, Elimination Chamber 2011, Extreme Rules 2011, Over The Limit 2011 & SummerSlam 2011 events came in, but the disappointing thing is that Capitol Punishment 2011 & Money In The Bank 2011 events didn’t come in the same dvd amarray case like the last 7 events came in

    Really hoping they change their minds on the blu releases, especially Survivor Series. I bought Elimination Chamber, Mania 27, & Extreme Rules on blu, mainly for the great Rock bonus features. Now they’re actually going to have Rock in a main event and no blu?!?! Crazy. Blu is here to stay, this is no time to go backwards with releases. Can you guys publish an e-mail address that we can write to and express our support for the superior blu format?

    As far as blu rays go, wwe needs to add more content to the disk in my opinion. They have the goods and the tape libraries. Make it worth it to have us buy the blu rays. I personally prefer it for the 1080p HD but other than that there is not alot of extra content to merit the extra cost.

  4. dt says:

    I agree with the gentleman below HitmanVanDam , I would as a collector much more value old vhs releases than dvds that are still available. I mean wwe did release alot of the a& e bio’s in vhs form of Mick Foley, Austin, The Rock. Why not put these as a tagged classic. There was a bunch of WWF Raw vhs tapes never released in dvd form, why not put those in dvd form.

  5. Anonymous says:

    Great tagged classic is coming!

  6. HitmanVanDam says:

    LP1, your not telling me anything I don’t already know. My point is they decided against the old VHS releases of Foley and Undertaker respectively and just threw their DVDs together. I think its a shame. Undertaker’s Gravest Matches for example is a 2 hour tape with complete natches. Seems lazy to me to skip it out just because its easier to reproduce something thats already in the digital form. I could be wrong I suppose. Maybe the Undertaker VHS releases will see the light of day eventually, but it doesn’t look good for the Foley releases, ‘Faces of Foley’ and ‘Madman Unmasked’ as they have a short run time.

  7. Daniel Bee says:

    straightedge47: Yes, Silver Vision are now releasing them all in the digipack style packaging.

    Look at http://wwedvdnews.com/wwe-michaels-vs-hart-dvd-release

  8. LP1 says:

    @HitmanVanDam, the reason the Taker & Foley DVD’s were released together in the same set is because both of those DVD’s were released around the same time in 2001. If you look at several other Tagged Classics sets recently released from 2000-2001, they go by either the order in which the PPV’s happened(the IYH ppv’s) or by the original release dates. Plus they’re only releasing Tagged Classic sets of VHS/DVD’s that are out of print in the UK with the WWF logo. So they’re only going to release Tagged Classics of VHS/DVD’s that were released prior to May 2002(the WWE name change). There’s no reason to do a Tagged Classics set of post May 2002 DVD’s since any DVD released post May 2002 is already available on Silver Vision’s website.

    “Silver Vision (UK) released a few titles this way but received some backlash from their customers”

    Does this mean they are back in the fold out packaging now? I haven’t bought any new release since the Nitro set yet so don’t know what the recent releases have been like.

  10. PenLOLbury says:

    Im from Australia, and I am filthy with the new dvd cases, I now order my dvd’s overseas, I sent a complaint to wwe. they have been in normal packaging since the cage match dvd

  11. HitmanVanDam says:

    I would have preferred it if they released the Undertaker DVD with Gravest Matches or one of his other VHS releases and the Foley DVD with one of his VHS releases instead. I don’t like that they’ve just put the DVDs together. It seems lazy to me. I think both are big enough names that 2 releases would have sold well enough to justify it. But neither disc has anything to do with the other. They had a rivalry but there arent any matches against each other and not all taker fans would be foley fans and vice versa. I love the tagged classics, but I’ve got to say I don’t like the thinking there, whatever it is. Doesn’t look too good for many more old tapes to hit DVD if they’ve started skipping out obvious ones. I guess we should be grateful for what we get. Shame.

  12. Thomas says:

    Silver Vision has received a backlash from their customers for releasing a few titles with no artwork inserts because they are not keepin their customers happy, well they should take it on board because it is complaints & the customers have every right to make a fierce backlash towards Silver Vision for not releasing artwork inserts inside the dvd cases & I totally agree with the other customers

  13. SRB says:

    That Hart/HBK shirt is hysterical looking. Whose going to walk around and wear that? I’ts good for a DVD cover, but not as a fashion statement

  14. I still can’t get over the WWE trying to sell digital versions at that price, $14.99 for each volume…$45 total when you can get the DVD for half that….hard to get excited about downloading something at that price…utter madness….

  15. Sam says:

    the randy orton dvd in australia doesn’t come with the artwork/digipack. that sucks.
