    I was hoping they would include the Off air promo the rock did after the PPV. It was awesome plus when he left the ring he signed my jersey and the WWE crew was filming the whole thing. I wonder what happens with that footage. Well any way go to youtube and search my user name VASCA4LIFE and check out my video of the off air promo by the rock and him signing our jersey.

  2. Jake T says:

    A bit off topic, but they had Wrestlemania XXVI, Bragging Rights 2010, and Hell in a Cell 2010 on Blu-Ray for $7.88 at Wal-Mart. This is in Washington state, so it may be different where you are. Be on the lookout…

  3. What are you talking about? says:

    Hey NoNoNo sorry but you are talking out of your ass on 2 things
    1 WWE stopped putting extras on the dvd versions so that the blu-ray would look more appealing to the buyer!
    2 The standard footage looks no better on a blu-ray disc than it does on a dvd disc for the simple reason is that for the 1000th time none of it was shot in HD anyway! To think that “older” pre 2008 footage looks better on blu-ray than it does on dvd is pretty stupid. Maybe you are just telling yourself it looks better!

    • WWEBluFan says:

      That’s not entirely true. What he’s referring to is bit crowding, or squeezing way too much on a single DVD. When that happens, it has to be encoded at a much lower bitrate, which can (and often does) result in an extremely poor picture, regardless of how good the original source was. Stuff like that was the impetus behind the old “Superbit” line that eschewed special features in order to devote the entirety of the disc’s storage capacity to a max bitrate presentation of the feature. I haven’t seen the specific WWE discs he referred to, so no clue if that was the case there (bitcrowding), but it’s entirely possible.

      A blu-ray by definition has SIGNIFICANTLY higher storage capacity, so the feature can be encoded at a much higher bitrate, so YES it’s entirely possible that standard def material can/does look better when played from a blu. Note that this doesn’t magically make it high def, so you’re totally right there. A lot of people have been led to believe that’s what “upconverting” does, but (sorry to say) it’s not true. You simply can’t magically create an HD image using old wrestling matches that were shot on standard def VIDEO. You can absolutely do it with old movies (because film has an amazing amount of resolution you can play with and the ability to highlight fine detail), but that’s not what WWE was shooting with pre-2008. That was just video, and there’s only so much you can do with that.

    • NoNoNo says:

      Lol, i did not say old footage on blu-ray looks like its hd, i just said the blu-ray discs makes use of the older footage better than dvd because blu-ray uses higher bitrate and has more storage capacity so it makes the old footage that was shot in 480i look clean on a blu-ray disc and when played on high definition tv,
      I agree that they have made wwe blu-rays look more appealing but thats fine cause thats the better format, they want to make much money as possible and thats why they include loads of extras on blu-ray now and have stopped including on dvd now..
      Yes that what was i referring to, since wwe used to put lof of extras on dvd disc the bitrate was very low for releases such as those, they did gradually improve from 2006 onwards but before that the bitrate was quite poor and they cudnt use the full capacity of it,
      WWE have always had this problem cause of how the progamming works, even with blu-ray 1080i ppv picture you still get artifects around the picture when the wrestlers make their entrance cause their is so much going on and lot of flashing, so even though blu-ray is the better format it does kinda struggle to keep up when a wrestler makes a entrance, some shots they do from a distance also look bit grainy but other than that when the action takes place in the ring the picture quality is spot on when it comes to blu-ray!!

  4. Steven says:

    Agree with everyone I really thought Punk vs Ryback TLC would be on, and was also hoping for Heyman’s Job Evaluation the following night, must be saving footage for Best of RAW and Smackdown 2013

  5. A little extra! says:

    I think the blu-ray extras are becoming poor. What happened to the exclusive stuff instead of these poor Raw and Smackdown segments. Just a cheap way to make it look like you are getting more fore your money. You skip most of these segments on Raw anyway so why would you want them as extras?

    • David says:

      They use to include the full SD and RAW go-home shows for RR 2010 and WM26, then they only included full RAW shows up to Elimination Chamber 2011. I thought they were nice to own.

      But i remember some PPV DVDs had some great extras…one in particular i remember was Royal Rumble 2003, that was just LOADED with stuff. Heres what it included:

      – Revolutionary Royal Rumble TV Promo (& the making)
      – Royal Rumble Moments (Confidential, 18th January 2003)
      – Undertaker Returns at The Rumble (all 3 teaser promos)
      – Over-The-Top-Rope Challenge: Batista vs. Rob Van Dam vs. Kane vs. Chris Jericho (RAW, 13th January 2003)
      – Pre-Match Interviews (Dawn Marie, Eric Bishoff)
      – Post-Match Interviews (Paul Heyman, Eric Bischoff, Dudley Boyz, Triple H, Team Angle, John Cena & Brock Lesnar)

      Just great content.

      No Way Out 2003 DVD also had Austin’s return on RAW a week before the ppv that wasn’t aired on tv. He got an amazing pop from the crowd.

      • The Top Rope says:

        Yeah the ppv dvds from 2002 and 2003 had loads of exclusive footage on them. And i also liked that they used to include the original ppv commercial and tv spots for that event. And they used to feature lots of hidden easter eggs.

      • NoNoNo says:

        You gotta remember even though dvds like royal rumble 2003 and no way out 2003 included loads of extras, the picture quality was sub standard, watchable but quite poor, there was a lot of pixellation on screen, e.g of this i was watching royal rumble 2004 dvd and i looked at the bit rate they used by pressing the select button on my ps3 controller and they used low bit rate cause of the amount of footage the used on the disc and the picture was quite rubbish,
        Hell in a cell 2009 dvd has the most awful picture quality released by wwe, its barely watchable
        you cant even see the crowd cause its a pixellated mess,
        Thus the reason why since wwe went hd they using higher bit rate now and they dont want a messy pixellated picture on the dvds since dvd discs struggles and blu-ray automatically does the process much better thus why standard footage looks clean on a blu ray discs than on a dvd disc,
        WWE have sacraficed dvd extras for a better picture quality on dvd but with bluray it dont matter cause they wwe blu rays have much better extras now!!

        • The Top Rope says:

          Are you sure it wasn’t a faulty dvd player or bad disc you were watching? Everyone was ok with the dvd releases before blu-ray. Infact i watch more dvds than bluray because they have the best events on them! Blu-ray started with ppv’s from 2008 when the product became stale around 2010 apart from the odd event which was ok.

  6. J says:

    Can people stop banwagonining Cm Puke and hating Rock seriously

  7. Jay says:

    No 6 man elimination tag match from that episode of smackdown?

  8. John Peterson says:

    Yay,we get the anger management graduation..That segment was great

  9. No says:

    Can everyone stop sucking The Rocks dick so much?

  10. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    The Blu-ray exclusives look good to me. I actually can’t wait to re-watch the WWE title match from Royal Rumble. More PPV Blu-rays please.

    • David says:

      Looks like that will happen this year…Best Buy lists Elimination Chamber 2013 as a BB exlcusive.

      So seems like the non-big-4 Blu-rays will be BB exclusive.

      • a says:

        I hope that Elimination Chamber 2013 blu-ray will be available in Canada as well. I haven’t seen Best Buy Canada or Amazon Canada list it on their respective websites.

      • Vincenzzzzzo says:

        Yeah, I heard about the Best Buy exclusive Elimination Chamber… I hope they sell well and WWE decide to release all PPV on Blu-ray going forward in the US.

    • Chloe says:

      Seems in the UK we get blu-ray for every PPV release which is great, I buy them solely for the extras! Was hoping for a Punk/Rock clash as an extra though, the one with The Shield attacking Rock would have been good, or even the TLC match between Punk and Ryback on Raw, shame that isn’t on there.

  11. Jammer says:

    I figured the Blu Ray exclusives would be those panel interviews they did that weekend with all 5 members of DX, Bret/HBK/King and the NWO. I think they would have been better for the exclusive than matches from Raw and Smackdown.

  12. TV-14 says:

    I Thought for sure Cm Punk Pipe Bomb promo , with The Rock would be on the Blu Ray.

  13. Supersonic says:

    Guess the following is waiting for the Best of Raw/SD 2013:

    Raw 1/7 – Cena vs. Ziggler, Punk vs. Ryback TLC, Rock’s return
    SD 1/10 – Rock and Rhodes Scholars verbal confrontation, Big Show vs. Del Rio LMS
    Raw 1/14 – Cena vs. Ziggler cage, Rock Concert III

  14. I wish they’d have footage from the Raw’s the night after on the Blu’s, I think they used to?

    • NoNoNo says:

      The night of champions 2012 and hell in a cell 2012 blu-rays have footage from raw the night after the ppv, i believe those 2 blu-ray editions were the first 2 to have footage after the ppv, i expect tlc 2012 blu-ray to have footage after the ppv, thus i hope they include the tlc match between punk and ryback from raw,

      Royal rumble 2013 blu-ray should have had at least 1 footage after the ppv like the rock promo setting up the rematch at chamber 2013, they might include that on the elimination chamber 2013 blu-ray which i hope as it is a excellent promo!!

    • David says:

      All WWE PPV Blu-rays except one had footage from the go home shows…WM27 Blu-ray had Rock/Cena making the match for WM28 as the only footage the night after.

      Blu-ray exclusives seem decent, somewhat expected. But I’m surprised they included the Cena promo, since i read it got negative reaction from management, especially since it followed a great promo with Rock/Punk/Heyman which i think should have closed out RAW when Shield attacked Rock.

      Would have been cool if they included the LMS from SD with Del Rio vs Show…but looks like that might be on Best of RAW and SD 2013.

  15. Bobby says:

    I am so incredibly ecstatic that they have forever immortalized John Cena’s epically terrible promo on blu-ray disc.

  16. Pablo says:

    I wanted them to have the TLC Match Ryback vs Cm punk for the Blu-ray extras!
