With the release of the Batista DVD now out of the way, the next major WWE DVD and Blu-ray on the way is “United We Slam โ€“ The Best of Great American Bash“.

WrestlingDVDNews.com can now reveal some exclusive screenshots and first notes.

Dusty Rhodes Hosting WWE Best of Great American Bash DVD

Dusty Rhodes hosts the set from the NXT arena at Full Sail University.

He and Larry Zbysko provide commentary for selected matches and do so from a “present day” perspective, not like when Jim Ross called matches for the Mid-South Wrestling DVD as if it were original commentary from the time. Dusty’s title win comes right from his own DVD released several years back with he, Steve Romero and Mike Graham on commentary.

The Sting & Lex Luger vs. Road Warriors tag match from July 1988 was suspected to be an error in the content listing when revealed and not a match known to be in existence. However, it is included, but the match is actually from November of that same year. It was in fact aired on The Main Event (12/25/88) and wasn’t part of the Great American Bash tour.

With the release of “United We Slam”, the Great American Bash 1988 pay-per-view becomes the only PPV to have every one of its matches released on compilation DVDs.

    So they put a WWF moment on the cover of a DVD about WCW moments?

  2. THOMAS says:

    Fantastic artwork for WWE PayBack 2014 event which is not very lazy, at least they have used the Promotional PPV Poster for a change for the dvd, despite what someone is complaining about the artwork of WWE PayBack 2014

  3. Tony Kegger says:

    Wow a WCW DVD with a WWE moment on the cover.

  4. RabidHeat says:

    Doesn’t sell * (damn you auto correct…)

  5. RabidHeat says:

    The Payback cover is very lazy. Fleshy sell the PPV at all. At the very least all members of Evolution and Shield should be on it.

    • Tony Kegger says:

      People complain about covers that spoil the event and now they complain about covers that don’t spoil the event. WWE can’t win.

      • RabidHeat says:

        Who says that’s what i was getting at? I just meant photos of all the members of Evolution/Shield should be on it as that was the main event. Don’t presume, phewl. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Todd Brown says:

    Did WWE purposely add The Main Event match from 1988 just to give the set some star power? It’s a huge error.

  7. WrestlingFan says:

    New cover artwork? Where?

    • Daniel Bee says:


      US version of the Payback art and that side shot of the OMG DVD art are both “new” in this article. Guessing you know that.

      But seriously, a few people did ask if the UK Payback cover would be the same for the US, which was a valid question, and the “new” art above answers it.

      • Vintage Simon says:

        When was the last time the US and UK had different DVD covers for a PPV?

        • Daniel Bee says:

          It’s rare, as I said to the last person who asked if the Payback cover would be the same. Regardless, we were always gonna update on the US version.

  8. RabidHeat says:

    Lol, love the way this article starts :

    “With the release of the Batista DVD now out of the way…”

    Anybody would think this writer didn’t care for that set. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Daniel Bee says:

      Maybe the author was playing up to the reader response the DVD has mostly gotten. Just a hunch. ๐Ÿ˜‰
