WWE Surveys Fans on New DVD Ideas – Hulk Hogan, Sunny, Network Shows?

May 23, 2014 by Daniel Bee

News making the rounds is that WWE has surveyed fans to gauge interest in potential new DVD and Blu-ray ideas, which include some controversial topics and the possibly of WWE Network shows being released in physical form.

Here we have a look at the survey questions, which were sent out earlier this week to “Fan Council” members. We’d like to give a shoutout to Chris Riddle for the screenshots.

 
Original Series

The survey reveals that under consideration now are DVD releases for the WWE Network shows Legends’ House, WWE Countdown, WrestleMania Rewind and The Monday Night War. The first season of Total Divas is also listed as a possibility.

“Legendary Biographies”

Under the name “Legendary Biographies” are 3-disc DVD/Blu-ray ideas for big names in WWE history, with a documentary portion making up the first disc of each set. This is described as similar to ESPN’s “30 for 30”. As you can see in the screenshot, three Superstar options among others for that question were Sunny, Brock Lesnar and Hulk Hogan.

“WWE Reveals”

The “WWE Reveals” DVD concept looks to be all about the most controversial moments in wrestling history. Potential topics for the DVD series include Jerry Lawler vs. Andy Kaufman, “The Curtain Call”, the “Dr. Death” David Schultz slap, Owen Hart’s tragic passing, Mike Tyson coming to WWE after time in prison, and a documentary on the XFL.

Some of these new ideas may well end up on the 2014/2015 WWE DVD schedule.

PWInsider reports that the survey also mentioned DVDs documenting the real lives of current WWE Superstars, and a “One Man Show” concept in which WWE legends tell stories on stage (inspired by the shows Mick Foley and Jim Ross have been involved with in recent years).

    That’s odd! I’m on the Fan Council, and I didn’t get that survey.

  2. Mr Disc says:

    That whole Lawler and Kaufman thing was all just a work anyway.

  3. Mr Disc says:

    Sunny is already doing her own shows on skype for money with fans. She even gets nude for you if you pay a little extra. Someone that paid for a show with her leaked the pics of the chat online.

  4. ROGER SMITH says:

    MY NAME IS ROGER SMITH AND I’VE BEEN A BIG FAN OF JERRY THE KING LAWLER SINCE 1974 AND STILL TODAY.COULD YOU DO A JERRY LAWLER MEMPHIS WRESTLING DVD THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

  5. Luke says:

    “Owen Hart’s Demise”? How insensitive! No respect and no class, and somehow I’m not surprised. I guess WWE’s legal people aren’t looking over this stuff before it goes out, nor anyone with any heart (no pun intended).

  6. Erik G. says:

    I’d so be all over an XFL documentary. I’d like to see Sunny, too, but hopefully they will focus more on how hot she was in the mid-1990’s and not on her unfortunate life today.

    What is The Curtain Call anyways?

    Isn’t “Owen Hart’s Demise” a bit harsh?

    I could see Monday Night War being good if they just focus on a specific night or handful of nights.

    • Mike says:

      This was at the point when both Kevin Nash, and Scott Hall were both on their way out of the WWF.

      The Curtain Call was the infamous 1996 moment at Madison Square Garden, when Shawn Michaels, Diesel, Razor Ramon, and Hunter Hearst Helmsley broke kayfabe, and saluted the fans.

      This caused anger among the WWF brass. And Helmsley, who was going to win that year’s King of the Ring, got punished the most out of it.

  7. I would like to see a Hulk Hogan DVD Hulk Hogans Rock N Wrestling the complete series produced.

  8. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    All of those ideas sound interesting, but I would very much like to have WWE Network shows make it to DVD and Blu-ray. I voted to see a Jerry Lawler DVD biography produced at some point. I heard Lawler and WWE were in talks about purchasing some Memphis wrestling footage, so hopefully a DVD on him can be made shortly. He is long overdue for one.

  9. RCS1988 says:

    How do you join WWE Fan Council?

  10. SCSA says:

    When do we get the next.. ‘Greatest Rivlaries’ set? The Shawn Vs Bret was spectacular! Can they not bring out a ‘Stone Cold Steve Austin Vs The Rock’ set on Blu-Ray??!?

    Or even something that has the Best Top 10 Royal Rumble Matches?! It’s so bad to not be able to watch the Rumble Match from the 90’s! The Royal Rumble DVD box-set’s were great, but now if I want to watch one like the Royal Rumble match from 1995, I have to spend up to £85-90 over the internet! + I want to watch it on Blu-Ray!

    • Kenny says:

      Didn’t they do one of those on Rock vs. Cena? I’d think Austin vs. McMahon would be the next one…if they do another in the series.

  11. ekkoes4life says:

    WWE: just keep the reality-tv junk on the Network, and start over again with producing excited wrestling DVD’s / Blurays, like WM XX, Bottom line, Rise and Fall of ECW, full of content that is relevant.
    Hope, the Heyman set is in that legaue.

  12. ALK says:

    If you go with Owen Hart, renamed the set WWE. Save yourself from another lawsuit…

  13. Sam Brock says:

    While I completely understand WWE’s need to adapt to the times like with social media and doing movies and everything, I do fear that eventually these blu-rays and DVDs will be more reality-based, leaving actual wrestling nostalgia in the dust. Eventually, I could actually see PPVs having less matches and more segments/skits and WWE releasing seasons on blu ray and DVD instead of actual wrestler biographies. I think they are really trying to cash in on the reality TV thing with their Divas show. Frankly, I hope this does not last.
