WWE ‘HARDCORE’ DVD & Blu-Ray Set In The Works for 2016 – Hardcore Match Compilation!

October 2, 2015 by Daniel Bee

WrestlingDVDNetwork.com can now exclusively report on another DVD just added to WWE’s 2016 Home Video schedule…

WWE Hardcore Match - Shane vs. McMahon vs. Steve Blackman

This one will be a compilation of Hardcore matches! The 3 disc DVD and 2 disc Blu-ray set is slated for release next year, speculated to either take a “Best of” Hardcore matches style format or instead focus on the history of the Hardcore Championship, which was active between 1998 and 2002.

As of now, the working title for the project is simply “HARDCORE” – the same name given to the single-disc WWF DVD when released by the company all the back in 2001.

WWE has been considering releasing a new Hardcore-themed DVD/Blu-ray since May this year.

The titles we’ve revealed so far for 2016 will, as of now, come out in this order: “Best PPV Matches 2015”, “The Best of RAW & SmackDown 2015”, “The Best of NXT”, Dudley Boyz, Eric Bischoff, “HARDCORE”, “OMG! ECW’s Craziest Moments”, “The True Story of the Royal Rumble”.

    I would enjoy this more if it was a volume 2 of “Falls Count Anywhere” with hardcore style matches not just exclusive of their hardcore title but hopefully this time include Last Man Standing matches which were missing off the last set.

  2. MikeS_87 says:

    I’ve just had a look through my collection and found the original 2001 Hardcore release. Here’s the match listing if anyone’s interested (the event and match details aren’t very helpful but I’m going by the insert inside the DVD….remember when they did those guys?!)

    Main feature: Mankind v Shamrock (Raw late ’98), Ivory v Tori, Al Snow v Hardcore Holly (St Valentines Day Massacre, Feb ’99), Crash v Hardcore Holly v Matt Hardy v Jeff Hardy v Tazz v Perry Saturn (Backlash, April 2000), Shane McMahon v Steve Blackman (Summerslam, August 2000).
    DVD extras: Hardcore Holly v Bart Gunn (late ’98/early ’99), Crash v Test (Smackdown early 2000), Crash v Tazz (Smackdown, March 2000), Laundrymat 24/7, Airport 24/7, Funtime USA 24/7 (where Crash escapes the headbangers by using a kids slide), Crash V Hardcore Holly (Raw, March 2000), Matt Hardy v Jeff Hardy, Brisco pins a sleeping Crash to win the hardcore title, Steve Blackman vs Big Boss Man, Steve Blackman vs Edge & Christian, Steve Blackman vs Tazz, Steve Blackman vs Tiger Ali Singh, Raven v Undertaker, Big Show v The Rock v Kurt Angle, Raven v Big Show v Kane (Mania X7), Rhyno v Raven (Backlash, April 2001), Rhyno v Big Show v Test (Judgment Day, May 2001), Rhyno v Big Show.

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      i got both the dvd and vhs. theres 2 or 3 matches diffrent but its pretty much the same the main bio i mean

  3. MikeS_87 says:

    That 2001 Hardcore DVD was a fun but forgotten release so I wouldn’t mind if they did a “here comes the pain” style set and put out an updated, extended version of that.

    • attitude.era.4life says:

      agree with that.. and hopefully they could put in a -Play All- button for all the extras.. I really hate to press play for every extras.

      • MikeS_87 says:

        Especially when so many of the matches on that DVD were short tv matches! Constantly grabbing for the remote on that one! Hope to see most of RVD’s 2001 matches on the new set. The matches with Jeff, Jericho and Taker were really good.

        • attitude.era.4life says:

          you would think that the absence of the -Play All- function was a relict from the past..but they did it with the first volume of Attitude Era and the Batista blurays. Let’s hope that were the final ones.

  4. me says:

    Sounds good to me. I was hoping for just History of the Hardcore Title but if they can expand the reach of the content without just making an excuse to show John Cena matches then I’m all for it.

  5. CMW says:

    Hopefully some of matches will be on it will involve the late, Crash Holly.

  6. RabiHeat says:

    ‘Falls Count Anywhere’ Volume 2 then, basically.

  7. Ryan says:

    Hopefully most of these matches are from 2001-2002, when the Hardcore title was RVD’s. He had some great Hardcore title matches with Edge, Taker, the Hardyz, Jerry Lynn, Tommy Dreamer, Jericho, Kurt Angle, and even The Rock.

  8. John says:

    That should be a interesting set, I hope it will be good matches and maybe unreleased matches

  9. David says:

    Anyone know if the RVD vs. Tommy Dreamer – Hardcore Title vs. IC Title Unification match from RAW 2002 in MSG has been on any set? could definitely see that being included.

    There have been some fun Hardcore title matches involving Al Snow, Hardcore Holly and Road Dogg.

    Looks like a potentially fun set…i don’t really expect 5* matches but lot of trainwrecks.

  10. Brad Attitude says:

    I wouldn’t mind seeing a compilation set of hardcore matches as long it’s not s**t like the Evening Gown Match betwee Pat Patterson and Gerald Brisco or anything else embarassing on that level.

    • attitude.era.4life says:

      Good god almighty, you’re right bout that disaster.. I thought it was enough when it was released by Silvervision on the KOTR 2000 tagged classics..but, noooooo..it had to be on Attitude Era vol. 2! :-/

      I love garbage and trash…but to a certain point. That particulare one we do -not- need on a bluray again, thanks.

  11. attitude.era.4life says:

    yesssss!!!! “…what does everybody waaaaant!?! HARDCORE!!!”

    nothing like good clean hardcore trash entertainment you can trust! 😉
