Extreme Rules 2013 was released on DVD this week. Check out the official trailer.
Also released this week were the “Action Packed” WWE DVD and Blu-ray double packs available here on Amazon.com. Cesar Albino passed along the photos below which reveal that they can also be found in store. For example, at Walmart stores the DVD packs can be found on sale for $12.96 each and Blu-ray packs at $14.96 each.
Some of you may remember seeing this insert included in WWE DVDs at some point in 2003. Aaron Carnevale passed this pic along and it gives an interesting look at what was the planned 2003-2004 WWE DVD schedule at the time.
As you can see there was a planned set for Kurt Angle which didn’t ultimately go ahead, nor did Best of Confidential Volume 2. The Rise and Fall of WCW did not get a release until several years later, and the same goes for The Rock’s match compilation.
David sends word of another great WWE DVD special offer available at Ollie’s Bargain Outlet, that being the WWE 2005 PPV Rewind (all PPV DVDs of the year in a box set) for only $30.
This is probably part of the “WWE DVD Buyout” sale they have going right now. You may recall that FYE has also been selling this box set for a reduced price of $49.99 as of late.
Today WWE.com has a photo article up looking at Coliseum Video tapes found in their offices. Thanks goes out to Dillian for letting us know.

The Jake/Snowman match w/Ali @ringside from the Superdome was actually going to be released, along with the promos and buildup for it, by Mid South Archives about 4-5 years ago. I believe it was called Jake The Snake: The Lost Footage…or something like that. If you’re interested, there was even an preview for it on one of the Mid South releases “Giants, Midgets, Heroes, & Villians”. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, it was never released.
I remember how annoying those large VHS cases were. They were waiting to be ripped apart with creases just like in the photo. It was nearly impossible to keep them in good condition.
I’ll wait until WDN releases the official match listing. More is in store for us than what we’ve seen.
So I’m clear… I know the blu-ray exclusives for mid-south have been revealed along with what i thought was a partial match listing. have all matches been revealed???
thanks for the recognition and man I miss confidential I have a few episodes I watch on vhs still
I didnt even notice there was an Angle set on the calender in 2004 when Aaron posted the pic. Marked out for the VHS tapes story
Hey I got a response from JR on Twitter.
@kevinmcguffey .. Flair vs Taylor from Super Dome is on the Legends of Mid South Wrestling DVD & is 40+ minutes of excellence.
what a shame to drop the kurt angle set.
I had it preordered from Amazon and couple days after “release date” i got an email saying the DVD was not being released and they cancelled my order.
I remember it was scheduled as a 2 disc set.
I always wondered why there was never a second best of WWE confidential released.
Damn good show and the Vol1 shows it no justice! thougt about buying the run from ioffer
What’s the point in calling a 45 min match between Flair and Taylor if you’re not even gonna include it in the DVD?
Apparently after tweeting JR yesterday, that match will be included, despite not being a part of his match list. This leads me to think… what else is there? He also didn’t list the Jake Roberts vs. Snowman match with Muhammad Ali (and there is an Ali chapter so is that match included too?)
I dunno man – they might not have that footgae, a lot of midsouth stuff was lost! they prob would have mentioned it in the list!
Jim Ross said back in April on his twitter account that he recalled several matches and amoungst them was the Roberts/Snowman match. All of the other matches he stated have made it to the DVD (or Blu-ray) so you’ve got to figure it will probably be included.
