WWE Mick Foley For All Mankind DVD

According to the BBFC classification body in the UK, the upcoming Mick Foley “For All Mankind” WWE DVD for April will have a total runtime of 6 hours and 15 minutes.

The documentary portion (the main feature of the set) is slated to be 2 hours and 14 minutes in length. No word just yet on the runtimes of the Blu-ray exclusive content.

For those wondering how to get the version of the Foley DVD and Blu-ray which contains a Mr. Socko puppet attached, the answer to this was confirmed today. The two extra Amazon listings we’ve been reporting about have now been updated to “Limited edition premium packs” which will no doubt have the item included. These are while supplies last.

WWE Bret Hart The Dungeon Collection DVD

The opening of the “Dungeon Collection” is a segment with Bret discussing the unreleased match concept of the DVD, which is shown on screen even before the WWE signature video.

As heard in the trailer, the DVD is a co-presentation by WWE and Bret Hart.

News for the UK and Europe now. This week FremantleMedia released the WWE Live in the UK: November 2012 DVD, and next week they will be releasing the Best PPV Matches 2012 DVD and Blu-ray. You can grab either title at WWEDVD.co.uk.

They also recently revealed the planned artwork for their version of the Elimination Chamber 2013 DVD and Blu-ray, as shown below. The release date for those is May 6th.

We learned this week that WWE Studios movies in the UK are handled by a different licensee.

As we’ve mentioned, there is a new UK and European licensee for TNA Wrestling DVDs. That’s Queensway Digital Ltd, who are are operating now through TNADVD.co.uk.

Bound for Glory 2012, Turning Point 2012, and Final Resolution 2012 are currently available to buy from the website. The Genesis 2013 DVD will follow shortly.

TNA Final Resolution 2012 DVD     TNA Wrestling DVDs

Now that they have three titles up, the “Buy 3 Save 10%” deal is in effect. We hear they are creating their own cover artwork for some of the TNA PPVs, as you can see above with Final Resolution 2012. There are plans to sell a small number of past TNA DVD releases from the old licensee at sale prices, which are due on the website within the next week. On the subject of older titles, certain DVDs from the back catalogue will be re-released, so if have any ideas of what you’d like to see brought back then let them know through their social media accounts – “TNADVDUK” on Twitter and Facebook.

    the exact same artwork as the US version of Elimination Chamber 2013 event by Fremantle Media Enterprises

  2. Tony Kegger says:

    I counted and there are like 17 matches. I don’t know how they can fit that many matches in four hours.

  3. Archangel says:

    Only 6 hours for Mick Foley’s DVD? 3-Disc sets used to be 9 hours.

    • Anonymous says:


      DVD sets should be 9 hours. Blu-Rays should be at least 10 hours.

      • David says:

        3 Disc DVDs use to be 9 hours because DVDs were in 4:3 ratio which takes up less room. Since filming in 16:9 (4:3 with sidebars) footage take up more space on a single a DVD disc.

        • Anonymous says:

          I’ve never seen any proof of that statement, but it does make some sense so I’m betting you’re right. With that said, there have been lengthier releases in the past. Look back at the 2009 releases that were released in 16:9 and were around two hours longer. Furthermore, this is yet another excellent reason why they should release 4:3 material in its original 4:3 format.

          • David says:

            The Ricky Steamboat DVD was the first 3 Disc WWE DVD that was filmed in 16:9 with old footage shown in 4:3 with the green sidebars in June 2010. Even releases like Best of RAW 2009 and John Morrison: Rock Star were actually in 4:3 for some reason given how RAW was in HD in 2009 and even Rock Star had quite a bit of footage from the “HD era”.

            Ever since the Ricky Steamboat DVD their 3 disc sets have been getting a lot shorter – the 6.5-7 hour range.

            Even with PPV DVDs, it wasn’t until Backlash 2008 when they started to have PPVs in shown in widescreen format.

            • Anonymous says:

              Yet PPVs run around 2:45. Given that, it’s reasonable to expect a 3-DVD set to be at least 8 hours.

    I will be reserving a copy of both speaking of dvds i currently have some WWF/WWE dvds and vhs on Ebay feel free to take a look and bid with confidence with a seller with a sale with a 100 percent feedback rating since 2008


  5. Jeff Copeland says:

  6. ed says:

    Why are you putting tna dvds or tna anything on here. Hence the website wwedvdnews.com not tnadvdnews.com

  7. Tommy B says:

    The Final Resolution DVD cover is awesome. FAR better than the PPV poster

  8. David says:

    That’s a pretty cool Final Resolution cover.

    ShopTNA will likely have Final Resolution 2012 and Turning Point 2012 soon. I like how their PPV DVDs are 2 disc with the second being a bonus, still pretty good to have even if they run 30-45 minutes.

    I liked the Bound for Glory 2012 bonus disc since it had the full Hall of Fame ceremony with Sting.

    Looking forward to the Foley doc…2hrs 14 minutes is a pretty good length.

  9. Duane says:

    I don’t mind the shorter run times. In a way I kind of prefer it. Sometimes I think WWE tries to cram to many matches into these sets. When it’s a set that’s just about one person seeing them wrestle over and over can get boring no matter who it is. To me 10 is a perfect number of matches for this kind of set. And any more than 20 is just crazy unnecessary.

    • Anonymous says:

      Huh?!? This is the most ridiculous post I’ve seen on this board and that covers some ground. If you don’t want to get bored watching the same guy over and over again than either don’t buy the set or don’t watch those extra matches. You do realize you have a right not to watch the DVDs you’re paying for, right?

      Furthermore, we already have people complaining when certain matches are left off. Cutting back to about 35% of the content they’re currently offering will only mean MANY more complaints and a HUGE REDUCTION IN SALES as many of us, myself included, who care about the matches will stop buying.

      • Duane says:

        I care more about buying something that I can sit down and watch in 2 or 3 sittings and enjoy. Quality over quantity has always been my preference.

        Why would I buy something I don’t intend to watch? For me sets like the new Bret Hart one aren’t interesting. The Foley one on the other hand looks great because all the blu ray extras are more documentary footage. Which is what I would rather see.

        As far your second point, people on this site are going to complain no matter what. But I highly doubt they stop buying new DVDs.

        • Anonymous says:

          Again, if you don’t want to watch the matches, don’t. It’s that simple.

          If they were ever to strip down the releases even a fraction of what you’re suggesting, I’d stop buying almost altogether.

          Since you brought up the Bret Hart release, I’ll briefly touch on that. This release more than any other proves my point that the more matches the better.

          I’m buying that release for one match. It surely isn’t the second generation VHS quality Georgia match that probably no one cares to see. It’s not the Andre YouTube quality match. It’s not the hacked up Dynamite Kid match. It’s the match against Ric Flair. Throw in the Austin match as a secondary match and you have a release with some appeal for me in spite of the fact I really don’t like the featured performer. So, the moral to the story is, the more matches they put on a release, the greater the likelihood that there’ll be something for a wider audience.

          And, again, if you don’t like to watch the matches, don’t. In fact, you could probably rent it on Netflix and save considerable money. Of course, you won’t the artwork to keep that I’m guessing is important to you, but you also won’t have to worry about selling it for pennies on the dollar in a couple of years when you realize that artwork isn’t the reason to own a DVD.

    Mick Foley deserves a full length documentary of 2 plus hours. Glad to hear that news. Looking forward to that release for sure.

  11. Steven says:

    FremantleMedia are putting the Mick Foley DVD/Blu Ray up frp pre-order tommorow.
    The first 300 who Pre-order Get a “Mr Socko”
    Thats what i was told today from them.

  12. Steve says:

    Glad to hear the documentary is so long. But I just can’t understand the run times for DVD & Blu Ray. They used to run 9 hours for DVD & now they are all 7.5. Then the Blu Ray is an additional 1.5 hours usually. They could be giving us so much more. Although I would venture to bet if they did it would be all repeated material.

    • Ryan says:

      Yeah they have been short changing the DVD length for awhile now. They did a better job when these were only 2 disc sets IMO.

  13. Daniel Bee says:

    Foley doc 2 hours & 14 minutes. Gotta be happy with that! 🙂

  14. I’m liking how the TNA DVD’s are being handled, hopefully the extra effort boosts the sales. Also, WWEDVD better carry Mr Socko!

    Any word on when TNA DVDs will be distributed in stores in the US again?
