Exclusive: WWE Network ‘Monday Night War’ Series to DVD & Blu-Ray in 2015

November 24, 2014 by Daniel Bee

Monday Night War WWE vs. WCW - Vince McMahon & Ted Burner

Over the weekend a few WWE DVD listings for 2015 were added to Amazon UK. Several WDN readers (including “sunnyg232”, “stevenuk” and “steve6950”) alerted us.

A new title among them was “Monday Night War”, the WWE Network series, and after some digging we’re able to exclusively confirm its go ahead on DVD and reveal its full name:

 
“The Monday Night War – Vol. 1: Shots Fired”
 

As the name suggests, plans are to release the series in separate volumes and this is the first of those. It’s scheduled to be a 3 disc DVD and 2 disc Blu-ray, releasing in the same month as the expanded “Destruction of the Shield” set, more than likely in February or March.

Thirteen episodes of the series have aired so far on the WWE Network.

    As I was reading the monday night wars is based on 20 episodes, so I wonder if they release a 3 disc/2 blu-ray. how they gonna fit 20 episodes on a 3/2 disc or are they planning to make a best of all the 20 shows ?!?!?

    • Bandit says:

      The first DVD/BLU-RAY is titled VOL 1 so they are going to probably have four VOLs – each having five episodes of the series so five hours – then two hours or so of matches – like one match that was touched upon from each episode.

  2. Anan says:

    I agree with David. I think a Monday Night Wards se with bonus deleted scenes is a great idea. Another cool feature would be unsealed episodes as WWE reportedly had a Foundations Of War episode focusing on Taker and Sting for this week, but instead replaced it with an episode focusing on celebrities.

    Sets on Wrestlemania Rewind, WWE Countdown and the new Rivalries show would also be a nice welcome addition to my collection.

  3. Vintage Simon says:

    I’m glad Best PPV Matches 2014 is seeing the light of day in the UK, but if it’s merely a DVD release (as suggested by Amazon), I’ll be mightily pissed off.

  4. LP1 says:

    I have no interest in the Monday Night War series. Once you get passed the first 2 or episodes it becomes a recap of stuff I feel I’ve seen a million times. The story of Austin, the story of DX, the story of Foley, etc. Also the revisionist history, while in effect in the first couple of episodes, really kicks in with the Bret-screwjob episode. From there the rest of the episodes just become redundant. It’s all stuff that’s been talked about and repeated to death over the last 15 years.

    Now WrestleMania Rewind is a different story. A very well put together series and I would definitely get that on home video.

  5. Richard W says:

    I so wished we had an Ollie’s Store here in the Midwest.

  6. Warrior Nation says:

    Have the warrior doc be Extended and release more matches as a blu Ray release. It makes more sense Bcuz there’s already a Monday night wars dvd. They can add much more value on a blu Ray release if they did the warrior there’s no point in releasing Monday night wars if I already have it on the network. With warrior they can do an extended documentary including his childhood told by his wife and mom plus never before seen matches.

  7. Nicolas Hébert says:

    Why is the Survivor Serie PPV only on DVD in North America? It’s the only Big Four PPV only on DVD. Royal Rumble, Wrestlemania and SummerSlam are on Blu-Ray and DVD in North America.

    • attitude.era.4life says:

      there will be no bluray, because, if it was released on bluray, that would mean there would be room for the real facts on stats like:

      – “the most significant Survivor Series match in history is the 2001 WWF vs. WCW!”

      – “John Cena AND Chris Benoit were the sole survivors in 2003.”

      – “other segments that the wwe can insult their fan base with…cos, it is wrestling..and that means the fans can not think for them self..and they sure as hell dont remember”!

  8. Richard says:

    I’m guessing the entire run of 13 episodes won’t be on this set since its labeled Vol.1? Regardless, its a well done doc series and hopefully this includes deleted scenes.

    A Daniel Bryan dvd set would be awesome. If they could pay ROH to include some of his favorite matches from that period, that would make his set definitive.

    • Bandit says:

      Theres actually 20 episodes of Monday Night War that were made.
      Probably will be three volumes of Monday Night War,
      Breakdown of # of episodes on each one being six-seven-seven or six-six-eight.

      • David says:

        Yeah, three volumes sounds about right. Was thinking two first (10 episodes each) but WWE don’t even go 5 hours on one Blu-ray disc and don’t even go more than 3 hours on a single DVD.

        • Bandit says:

          I thinking now they may even do four volumes – five episodes each – then add appox two hours of matches to each volume that would include at least one match that was talked about in each episode of the series.

  9. Todd Cash says:

    Monday Night War blu ray first day purchase for me…can’t wait…

  10. David says:

    I think the Monday Night War on DVD/Blu-ray is a great idea. To even entice sales they can include bonus deleted scenes or something that didn’t air on the Network. I’m sure each episode went over an hour but they removed some interviews and condensed it to fit the hour time slot.

    An extended release of Warrior and Bryan documentaries would also be pretty awesome. Wouldn’t mind Legends House and Wrestlemania Rewind either.

    • Anan says:

      If The Shield set does well, WWE will hopefully look into sets that will include extended docs on Bryan and Warrior. Warrior got a set this year. Aside from the Superstar Collection, Bryan’s had no release yet. I with Punk and WWE had a better relationship so he could have been involved with a Daniel Bryan set as those two have been competing with each other before getting to WWE.

      Regarding the Monday Night War set(s), since they’re not gonna cover all the episodes on the first volume, I hope in addition to deleted scenes if any, they include some segments and matches that were talked about in large detail like Hogan’s heel turn in WCW, DX invading WCW, Bret bs HBK at Survivor Series 97, Foley’s World Title win on RAW. I know this has been released before, but since they were some of the main focuses of the Monday Night War, it belongs as accompanying content for a set on the show.

  11. attitude.era.4life says:

    Sounds great with the Monday Night War series release….if they really release it all! I can only be afraid of the fact, that they suddenly stop producing the serie on physical in the middle of the series, cos they suddenly figure out, it will not be best for business, so to watch the whole story, one will have to continue watching on the Network…

    in my case, that would mean, no more War history, cos my subscription ends Sunday…and no way am I gonna continue the membership of the 9.99 garbage, with that mediocore or bs product that wwe is today.

    so, hoping for a big seller on that, along with other exciting back-catalogue blurays, so we can continue collecting the REAL good stuff, on REAL good viewing media. .-)

  12. Steve Giordano says:

    So clearly 2015 will be a lazy year for WWE home video as they will release network content and not fresh material.

    • Daniel Bee says:

      So far, but let’s hope there are some surprises.

      The Shield one is ok in my book as they are expanding on what was made originally. Monday Night War, not sure, but if people want it on a physical DVD/Blu-ray and it sells, I guess that’s the point.
