    Heya i’m for the first time here. I came across this board and I find It really useful & it helped me out a lot.
    I hope to give something back and help others like you helped me.

  2. Matt says:

    Picked up the Stone Cold 4 disc rumbler pack dvd. Which Rumbler pack dvd should I get next. WCW Clash of The Champions dvd, ECW Unrealeased vol 1 dvd or Falls Count Anywhere dvd.

  3. Tom says:

    I picked up the top 50 Superstars Rumbler’s pack yesterday. It did come with a purple & yellow John Cena figure.

    Some of the figure DVD combinations were just bizarre, I mean John Cena with the best of Nitro DVD Set for example. Rey Mysterious yes, but not Cena.

    The DVD sets I saw we’re in a display in the electronics section of my local Wal Mart’s.

    Some of the DVD’s were also released on Blu-ray too like the 50 finishing moves for example. Wal-mart also had one with the Greatest Superstars of the 21st Century DVD too…

  4. Rob L says:

    Any word on when those Rumbler/DVD sets will be released?

  5. RipSavage says:

    Can someone tell me in the first Wrestlemania release whether VHS or DVD does Jesse Ventura speak? With the recent re-release of Wrestlemania 1 and the new MSG DVD Jesse Ventura does NOT speak. I thought Jesse and Vince made up? Still, will we ever see a Best of Jesse Ventura Collection?

    • David says:

      The Wrestlemania Anthology has Jesse Ventura’s commentary…the re-releases from earlier this year are the exact same discs as the Anthology release from 2005, so his commentary is in-tact.

      Its just WWE’s way of avoiding to pay royalties to Ventura, depending on the release. His commentary was muted on Top 25 Rivalries and War Games.

  6. Sammytown says:

    Checked in my local FYE today…but had NO such luck copping the Mid-South DVD early. Like previously mentioned, wouldn’t have been a guarantee as I’ve also been flagged at the register by that lousy computer on an early release.

    • Daniel Bee says:

      Sure, often heard stores of people being denied the purchase at the register but equally in the past couple of months a lot of WDN readers told me they were successful with these early buys, so thought it worth mentioning in the news.

      • David says:

        I had to same issues with Best Buy. They use to ALWAYS break street date and have WWE DVDs/Blu-rays on the shelf sometimes a week or two before release. When they scan it, the sale won’t complete and a message pops up saying “Not to sell before so-and-so date”.

        The person mentioned if they override it the store could be fined $10,000 for each copy sold.

        Where i live Walmart don’t have the street date lock, but they hardly ever put them on the shelf before release. I remember the only DVD they had early was John Morrison Rock Star like 2 weeks before release, i bought it and the sale went through.

        • Mr Disc says:

          I don’t know why they bother stocking the shelves with the titles that’s still on pre-order if they wont allow you to actually purchase the DVD/Blu-Ray at the checkout.

  7. Scott says:

    I don’t know where WWE gets this idea that boxsets are outdated
    Its just the fact that they are lazy
    I can understand with some archival footage they can’t show based off of certain talents contracts with AWA and WCW
    Its simple for WWE:
    If you aren’t sure about non-wwe boxsets just release them on WWESHop

  8. Ludvig B says:

    *thanks wwe

  9. Ludvig B says:

    Regarding Mid-South screenshots… Black bars are the best bars… That’s wwe, and stick with those.

  10. JQ says:

    youtube vids from four idiot marks with no info just insane speculation. No thanks.

  11. Colin V. says:

    The case of Mid South at FYE being available before release date is probably an error by them. I had a situation like that happen to me when WAR GAMES was gonna be released. I went in FYE and noticed they had it on the shelves a week before release date. I brought it up to the cashier and she said she couldn’t sell it to me because it was out too early and the kid who stocks the dvds made a mistake.

  12. Travis says:

    Interesting that the Blu-ray price for the Raw set has already jumped from $83.99 to $109.99 on Amazon. It’ll probably yo-yo back and forth closer to the release date.

    • John says:

      Good thing I pre-ordered it when before it went up but I am sure the price will go down a few days before it is released

    I think I’ll win the DVD tonight
