Some time ago we revealed plans for incoming WWE DVD and Blu-ray sales at various stores across the United States on the road to WrestleMania.
In the case of Walmart, our information told us that a “Road to WrestleMania 30” section is planned for participating stores, containing a sale on 40 to 50 WWE DVD titles. Those are slated to include the best sellers of 2013 and Walmart exclusive 2-packs. Also indicated was a pre-purchase offer on the WrestleMania 30 DVD/Blu-ray, giving the customer a VUDU instant download of 1 WrestleMania event and an e-copy of WrestleMania 30 too.
WDN reader Andy Bass observed the following at Walmart over the weekend:
It appears that Walmart is going to have another WrestleMania season DVD blow out. While at their store in Harrodsburg, KY this morning, there was an entire shelving unit that was being prepared for approximately 40-50 titles (tags on the shelving unit identified that they would be WWE dvd releases) ranging in price from 5.00 to 12.96 and also both DVD and Blu-ray offerings. Sales associate said they would available tomorrow or Tuesday.
Before then, WDN reader “MDG915” notes that Best Buy have several WWE DVDs and Blu-rays marked down in-store already. Those include the Goldberg, WCW War Games and Money in the Bank Anthology Blu-rays priced at just $11.74 each.
As noted, KayfabeCommentaries.com are releasing a “YouShoot: ICP” DVD.
It’s (you guessed it) a new shoot interview with the Insane Clown Posse and it’s coming this month on March 25th. Here’s a new screenshot from the shoot.
WDN reader Wesley wants you to know that he’s auctioning off the tricky-to-complete, full set of WWF Attitude Collection DVDs here on eBay.com this week. He notes that the 2007 Blockbuster exclusive DVDs, an autographed Trish Stratus FYE Exclusive, the complete ECW Pioneer set, and other special editions are soon to be listed on his eBay also.
Still no Ministry of Darkness, Raven’s Flock or The Alliance…. definitely won’t be buying. This is a fail by WWE.
What the hell? The Spirit Squad in Blu-Ray Exclusives?! Where’s HBK on this set??!? We should get something like;
The Biggest 8-Man Tag Team Match in SmackDown History
Undertaker, Cena & DX vs. Randy Orton, CM Punk & Legacy
Anyone know if Best Buy still has those blu rays on sale in store?
Where the hell are the Ministry of Darkness? Weren’t they supposed to be on this set? They have The Brood but that does not include Viscera, & Midean. WTH?
Honestly the Ministry was nothing really special. It was basically Undertaker with a bunch of jobbers and mid-carders going nowhere.
Ministry was better than Spirit squad, job squad, every squad.
Only one nWo match and a terrible choice is upsetting to me. The only thing I can think of is that nWo Volume 2 is coming eventually.
…OR perhaps a whole nWo DVD was JUST done, and if there were more matches on here they would all just be repeats, and everyone on dvdnews would complain anyway
Again, where is The Alliance? The biggest faction of the 2000’s and no mention.
Maybe there is no obvious match to show
Only one I can think is the Inaugural Brawl from Invasion.
Seriously, the Alliance was ambarrassing. This was the storyline that could have been remembered for all ages but simply faded away with STSA and Kurt Angle. I was disapointed.
Them but no Raven’s Flock, WTF!!!!
Anyone know how long these matches are? Seems now that blu-ray exclusives are being trimmed heavily.
According to Wiki, the following length of the matches are:
The Wyatt Family vs. Daniel Bryan – 12:25 minutes
Spirit Squad vs. Kane & Big Show – 3:52 minutes
The Shield vs. Ryback, Kane & Daniel Bryan – 25:15 minutes
So about 40 minutes without entrances and post-match. So does seem like they are trimming Blu-ray exclusives from 90 minutes as well now.
Most likely all together the running time of the blu-ray extras could total to 60mins maybe because disc 3 on dvd runs over 3hrs, if WWE start short changing and start trimming the blu-ray extras on the blu-rays, i will stop buying the blu-rays!!
Spirit Squad!? DaFuq? On a Best of set? You gotta be kiddin’ me! XD
Exactly! And a match that short? Waste of space!
It may have something to do with Dolph Ziggler being a member of the Spirit Squad…
happy too that the Shield TLC match from 2012 makes it. makes me buy this one then, cos it was the only match that 100 % was great on that show..or any other show from Night og Champions and forward for that matter.
Night of Champions…
Glad the Shield match made it. That was one of the best in 2012 and finally on Blu-ray in the US.
LOL! at Spirit Squad…what a joke!
