We’ve just heard that WWE have sent out an email to members of their “Fan Council” which contains a link to a survey gauging opinions of potential new WWE DVD and Blu-ray releases, some of which quite possibly could make it to the 2014 schedule.
Thanks to WDN readers Michael and Bobby for passing the news along.
Some of the titles mentioned on there include a set on The Rock vs. Stone Cold, a Randy Savage documentary, a Chris Jericho match compilation, a “Best of” WCW PPVs release and various others. The full list of them is shown below.
Macho Man Randy Savage – Documentary plus matches
Chris Jericho – Best Matches
Shawn Michaels – Best Matches
John Cena – Documentary plus matches
Rhodes Family (Dusty, Dustin/Goldust, Cody) – Documentary plus matches
RVD – Best Matches
Class of 96 (Rock & Stone Cold) – Documentary plus matches
Batista – Best Matches
Stone Cold Steve Austin – Stone Cold Steve Austin picks his favorite WWE matches
Daniel Bryan – Best Matches
Best of WCW Pay-Per-Views – Best Matches
Rey Mysterio – Best Matches
Below is a screenshot of the survey sent out earlier today by WWE.
The official survey is only available to “Fan Council” members and you will have already been emailed a personal link to it if that’s you. However, we’ve made a poll below to see which of the proposed DVDs our readers have the most interest in.
If they do an rvd set, it should be a full rvd vs jerry Lynn feud set and they need to put out a best of wwe developmental set with old matches from ovw, Deep South wrestling, fcw/nxt, heartland wrestling association and other former wwe developmental companies, now, they need to put out the ecw ppv stuff and I’m happy
I want them to release full WCW PPVS from each year I would buy ALL that shit,
This list is a pretty weak one. Ones I’m interested in would be the Macho Man, WCW PPVs, Rhodes Family, and Rock and Stone Cold, that is if it was in same format as Bret and Shawn sit down dvd.
would like old nwa \wcw ,lex lugar -STING great american bash , bunkhouse stemped maginuim t.a arn anderson barry windham and also would watch some old wwf stars junkyard dog rick rude srgt slauter big time fan of 80’s wrestling that was my teen years
Def wcw ppvs anthologies whatever I want Halloween Havocs slsmborees road wilds starrcades bashes and even new blood rising greed sin and super brawl revenge I want them all please wwe sell all wcw ppv footage in full
I want a new brock lesnar doc and a Undertaker doc is the one I really want that is if they do it like the stone cold set and they should rerelease the last stone cold set this time unblurred
I would like to see a Chyna set but that would never get done by WWE lol.
Never say never. Many thought Bret Hart/Warrior/Bruno and Vince would never mend fences. Bret did. Bruno did. Warrior seemingly has. But they mended fences decades later. Maybe the same will be for Chyna. Speaking of sets, I’d like to see a real, non-burial documentary on Warrior as well as a set on Bruno.
I would like to see a Kevin Nash set also, I think it would be good.
Nash would be a good story. I think Hall, Owen, Goldust, Booker T, Vader, Bruno Sammartino, Sting, Kane, Taker would also be good. Reality is there’s lots of names who’d make a great documentary set.
I agree. I was always enjoyed Nash’s stories in shoot interviews. He seems like a generally cool guy and has quite the mind for the wrestling business – similar to HHH. Definitely would like to see a documentary on Nash.
Macho Man Randy Savage – Documentary plus matches – Deserves a documentary. His last set should have been a doc.
Chris Jericho – Best Matches – If they allow Jericho himself to handpick the matches that make the set, I’m for it.
Shawn Michaels – Best Matches – He’s had enough sets already as it is.
John Cena – Documentary plus matches – He’s also had enough sets. But being that he IS Cena, this is probably likely to happen.
Rhodes Family (Dusty, Dustin/Goldust, Cody) – Documentary plus matches
RVD – Best Matches
Class of 96 (Rock & Stone Cold) – Documentary plus matches – I’ll pass. Isn’t fair that these two get a Class of 96 set when there were stars who were bigger than they were that year.
Batista – Best Matches – His other set had his best matches IMO.
Stone Cold Steve Austin – Stone Cold Steve Austin picks his favorite WWE matches – He’s had enough sets to cover his best.
Daniel Bryan – Best Matches – Yes, but too early to release it in 2014.
Best of WCW Pay-Per-Views – Best Matches – I like it. They should have guys who went through WCW get involved in this project (Booker T, Mysterio, Jericho, etc)
Rey Mysterio – Best Matches – I’m on the fence about this one. If Rey can pick his best matches from ECW, WCW mostly and then some from WWE, I’m in favor.
I think Steve S meant to say Daniel Bee but I’m a huge HBK fan and I think the 1997 raw match of HBK vs Flash Funk should be on it for comedy and a good memory.
@Brett Mix If WWE does decided to do a Shawn Michaels best matches, do you there would be a DX match on it from 1997 or backstage segments like the one Mike James mentioned?
I would love to see a Buff Bagwell set of his greatest matches.
If they do a Shawn Michaels set, I hope they include as a Blu-ray special the time DX was searching for Undertaker in that hurse and the hot women jump out and JR said well obviously The Undertaker is not in that hurse. Hahaaa and include a ton of unreleased classic DX matches from 1997.
I want a Kevin Nash documentary plus best matches, he would have a lot of great Kliq stories and his career is amazing from a basketball player at Tennessee to a big time wrestler.
A Randy Savage documentary to me, is far and away the most exciting possibility on this list. It may not feature an actual interview from Randy , but possibly his widow or his brother along with some key guys would make this set very attractive. Jerry Lawler, Bill Dundee, Jerry Jarrett, Ricky Morton, Lance Russell, Jimmy Hart, Rick Steamboat, George Steele, Mean Gene Okerlund, Bret Hart, Ted DiBiase, Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, Ultimate Warrior, Lex Luger, Eric Bischoff, Gorgeous George, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon.
How many great Savage matches were left off his Ultimate Collection set? I think the main attraction would be the Doc.
An Undertaker documentary is arguably the holy grail of WWE collections. But I’m still waiting on the Bruno DVD set….
Savage doc is far and away No.1 to me.
I’m still waiting for a killer Ric Flair blu-ray set! Make it happen next year WWE!!!
Interesting DVD selections, but I wished they did a survey asking what people would like to see and give lineups for the DVD’s. There needs to be an unreleased sets on the Ultimate Warrior & the Undertaker, a Most Unusual Matches DVD set, and a Coliseum Video hidden treasures featuring matches taped for Coliseum Video thay were not featured on any Coliseum Video releases.
I have ZERO interest in a Daniel Bryan, RVD, Rey Mysterio, or John Cena set. ZERO.
As other have stated, the rest of the titles in the list would be okay if only the “best of” would be replaced with “unreleased.” Now, if WWE were to ask me what I’d want to see, I’d say:
-Unreleased Jim Crockett Promotions
-Best of WCW on TBS Saturday at 6:05 (it’s amazing how almost none of this show, once a ratings giant, has ever been released)
-Unreleased Best of WCW (TV and PPV stuff)
-Unreleased Best of WWF Prime Time Wrestling
-Unreleased Ric Flair
-Unreleased Shawn Michaels
-Unreleased Steve Austin
-Unreleased Four Horsemen
-Unreleased Best of the territories featuring JCP, Florida, Georgia, Mid Atlantic, WWF (pre-1985), AWA, Stampede, and Mid South.
As far as documentaries go, I prefer they used the format found on the Mid South set.
I will give my opinions on each of the dvds……
Randy ”Macho Man” Savage Documentary.
Personally, it would be nice, as long as it includes this match…….
Steel Cage Match
Randy ”Macho Man” Savage vs. Honky Tonk Man
Philadelphia Spectrum- January 9, 1988
That will be a worthy addition.
Stone Cold Steve Austin is a great wrestler, and I do not mind another set on him. The matches that should be included on his dvd though should be……
Three Stages of Hell Match
Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Triple H
No Way Out- February 25, 2001 (Blu-Ray Exclusive)
No Holds Barred Match for the WWE Championship
Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Undertaker
Judgment Day- May 20, 2001 (Blu-Ray Exclusive)
WWE Championship Match
Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Chris Benoit
SmackDown!- May 31, 2001 (Highly Doubt It)
WWE Championship Match
Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Kurt Angle
SummerSlam: Let The Bodies Hit The Floor!- August 19, 2001
WWE Championship Match
Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Kurt Angle
Unforgiven: The Greatest of Battles Are Fought From Within- September 23, 2001 (Blu-Ray Exclusive)
Stone Cold vs. Ric Flair/Big Show
Judgment Day 2002: Judge, Jury, and Executioner- May 19, 2002 (Blu-Ray Exclusive)
Stone Cold vs. Ric Flair
Raw- June 3, 2002
No Disqualification Match
Stone Cold vs. Eric Bischoff
Raw- March 17, 2003 (Blu-Ray Exclusive)
Just out of curiousity, why are you specifying some of the matches should be Blu-ray Exclusive?
I might be doing a Fantasy Concept soon on Stone Cold.
Not a bad little list, but hey better have some gems already in production. This has been a strong DVD year, and this list would leave something left to desire.
I assume that ECW vol 3 is a guaranteed release for ’14. Maybe Nitro vol 3 as well. I also love the Unrelease format that they went with for Hulk and Bret. I would gladly welcome one for Austin, Jericho, RVD, Mysterio, Flair, Guerrero, Rock, or Taker, just to name a few…lol.
They could release a Cena set every year and the thing would make bank. How many Hulk release were there in the 80’s and early 90’s?
Would love to see a Daniel Bryan doc, but don’t finish production on it until at least after WrestleMania.
If they they release a WCW Best of PPV set, I hope their listing does not reflect the Top 20 List that the website released earlier this year. I too would prefer they go the Best of Halloween Havoc, Best of Great American Bash, etc.
I would not mind an Iron Man Anthology. There are a couple good ones that have not been released yet.
I guarantee that the Guardians of the Galaxy movie that comes out next year is the sole reason that the idea of another Batista set is being is floated around on that list of prospective releases.
If there is a ”Best of WCW Pay-Per-View Matches Vol. 1”, some of the matches that would be included should be……….
No Disqualification Match for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship
Sting vs. Randy ”Macho Man” Savage
Spring Stampede 1998- April 19, 1998
WCW World Tag Team Championship Match
Kevin Nash and Scott Hall vs. Sting and The Giant
Slamboree- May 17, 1998
Goldberg vs. Sting
Slamboree- May 9, 1999
WCW World Heavyweight Championship Match
Diamond Dallas Page vs. Kevin Nash
Slamboree- May 9, 1999
Those are MY main picks!
A Rob Van Dam blu ray is a must for me! It wouldn’t hurt to knock out another Ultimate Warrior or Macho Man set. But the most obvious omission for me is
ANDRE THE GIANT!
I’m very glad to see that people are being realistic about these selections. We could always use a Savage set and documentary and always more WCW stuff. The last thing we need is another Austin or Cena set. Didn’t Austin hand-pick the matches already on his last release? I’m very into the unreleased collections they have put out for Hart and Hogan. I watch them all the time and really think we could use those for Flair, HBK and Jericho.
I picked the WCW PPV’s and my second vote would have been for Macho Man! Now that being said if either one of these sets are made Please and I mean PLEASE put Macho Man Vs Sting Spring Stampede 1998 in its entirety!
Why does the wwe keep putting the same wrestling dvds out.Shawn micaels and stone cold has had 3 dvds and counting.Andre the giant ultimate collection would sell world wide.
First,who makes the decision on what dvds comes out ? We have had 3 shawn michaels dvds,3 stone cold austin dvds,3 john cena dvds,1 batista dvd,1 rob van dam,and 1 chris jericho dvd.Who ever it is,they cant be much of a wrestling fan.Andre the giant fans should have a ultimate dvd .What he did for wrestling and has fans all over the world.What about A Vader set ? Come on wwe,There was wrestling before shawn michaels and stone cold austin
I’m extremely interested in a “Macho Man” documentary, whether this would be possible given the relationship Lanny Poffo shares with the WWE and their (Vince’s) strained history with the “Macho Man” is another story. A pipedream I hope can become a reality.
I’m interested in a Daniel Bryan set too considering his recent position in the company and because I’ve followed his career since ROH, it would be a definite purchase as you can’t go wrong with Bryan.
RVD’s set sounds good too but I’d like a documentary just for the sake of it and more emphasis on ECW matches like his last WWE set “One of a Kind”.
The WCW PPV’s sounds good, but it depends what WWE wants to put on the set, because they do have a tendency to put some pretty bad matches on WCW sets, again though like the “Macho Man” set a nice pipedream I hope comes true.
Nonetheless, these sets sound very interesting and I can’t wait to see what happens.
Some sets I’d like to see the WWE make in the future are:
I would love to see the following Blu Rays:
Stone Cold (unblurred)
I did want an RVD set, but it needs a documentary. In terms of the others, I’d buy the Shawn Michaels unreleased set, the Steve Austin set (although am I right in thinking that these aren’t necessarily all his matches?), and possibly the Randy Savage set. None of the others interest me at all. The Cena documentary shouldn’t come out until he retires, so hopefully this release will indeed see the light of day in 2014.
I’m down for John Cena, Batista, Chris Jericho, and Best of WCW sets!
However I think there is more than enough DVDs for Stone Cold, Mysterio, Rock, and Shawn Michaels. But you know, I want more on Triple H! Even though a brand new set literally just came out, I would totally buy a new one in the future!
I wouldn’t be opposed on a Daniel Bryan DVD, but he hasn’t been in WWE that long. He’s still in the beginning of his main event push. Maybe after he reaches five years from his debut.
I also wouldn’t be opposed to a Macho Man DVD, but a documentary isn’t as good without his presence. Plus his first DVD was really in-depth with all his best matches. Unreleased Collector’s Series would be interesting though
Not mentioned, but I want to see the RAW: Best of Season DVDs return. Start at 1997 near the dawn of the Attitude Era and it would sell so much!
Most of that stuff sound really good actually. I would want most of that…
The Daniel Bryan set would be great. He’d obviously have a lot of his matches from summer 2013.. Which is okay. I’m a huge fan of his. One of my top favorites of all time. But if they make it.. It should come out in December of 2014. That way they can put stuff from 2014 as well.
Rhodes Family Set.. This would be another must have.. I am a Cody Rhodes mark. Have been a HUGE fan of his from his debut.. I’m also a huge Goldust fan. Dusty was a tad before my time.. But regardless this set would be great. I was thinking maybe it could be like the Matt and Jeff DVD.. They each get their own disc with their part of the documentary and matches. Just to make it fair. But I don’t know how that’d work in blu ray.
Chris jerichos best matches that would be another must have for me. Jerichos first set was great. But he’s had so many great matches. They could easily fill this up. Hopefully with some Benoit stuff too.
RVD is another set that would be great
Randy Savage needs to be released though. Most definitely
i wouldn’t mind another RVD DVD but with matches only from his WWE 2001-2007 run
I want the Macho Man Documentary but please no more Savage vs Steamboat from Wm 3.
Daniel Bryan set would be awesome and another RVD set would be great too. But please no more double dips.
F**k Rock vs Austin. At this point i can make my own set for them with all the footage i own.
I don’t want to see a HBK, Jericho or Rey set unless it un released matches
That was hard but I chose randy savage even though I’m desperate for a new rvd blu ray
Save Bryan for a mid-career doc (though I realize they want to take advantage of his popularity) like they did for Punk.
A Savage doc would be cool – freakin’ shame they released a match collection of him while he was still alive and didn’t just bury the hatchet there.
RVD DVD/BR would be cool, but wait until he’s done.
For Jericho they should just extend his old DVD since several matches were in HD with no BR release. Maybe that can be a special BR exclusive edition or something, and they could do another 2-disc standalone of his matches that didn’t make the cut.
Rhodes family would be cool, but I’d rather just see one focused on Goldust with Dusty/Cody helping out with the story. It could have awesome artwork, too.
Macho Man documentary would be great…too bad WWE waited this long to release one now that he’s no longer here. Would have been awesome hearing his comments. But i guess they will just use Lanny Poffo and possibly even Ultimate Warrior since he seems to be in good terms with WWE. They will probably recycle some interviews with guys like Hogan.
Looks like no ECW Unreleased Vol. 3.
This is just a survey not the 2014 schedule. We have no idea if ECW Vol. 3 is coming.
Another Stone Cold DVD? How many good unreleased matches are available?
I would take the documentaries of the Rhodes Family, Savage & Rock/Austin. The remaining compilations remains to be seen, in my opinion.
im up for a RVD Blu ray !
Terrible ideas. Lets just repeat the last 20 years over and over again. Most of those titles have been done. No reason to do any of those.
No point doing docs if the guy is dead. Waste of time.
Titles I wanna see
Best of Bob Backlund
I voted for WCW ppv’s, I also want the Savage doc. I hope they release them and put them out in early 2014!
You know what the best part is about all of this? The fact that there’s a pretty good chance at least a few of these will be made. Remember a couple years back when they sent out the survey that had the Goldberg, War Games, and In Your House all as options? Look what we have now, guys.
Oh and I voted for the WCW PPV Matches one. But Savage, Bryan, Mysterio, Jericho, and Rhodes Family would all be welcomed. Rhodes Family one is a really cool and unique idea.
I knew they wouldnt be done with Stone Cold they will always remake a Steve Austin
dvd set from a couple of years apart from each other and like to see a new Chris Jericho one and glad Batista might get a 2nd dvd set that I would be glad to buy.
this shouldn’t even be in question macho man docu is LONG overdue make it happen!! then rock vs stone cold would be good even though it was a short history but i think they are going to be great series especially after brett vs shawn but then again they had a lot of history, let’s see.
all these match compilations are useless!!
Definitely up for a RVD Blu-ray. I’d buy that in a heartbeat!!! Best of WCW and Macho Man might be interesting too depending on the match list 🙂
Cena’s already had a documentary, “My Life”. I can only assume it would be a blu-ray collectors edition ala Brock Lesnar.
Gotta keep milking the cash cow
That was quite a few years ago and the docs in recent years have surpassed those older ones. Although I don’t think the final story is ready to be told.
I like the BO WCW PPV’s
The only thing I would like would at least have Anthology Sets for Starrcade,GAB,and Fall Brawl
I am not really a fan of any of these DVD’s. I would rather see a Ted Dibiasi or Ric Rude documentory with matches. And I hope the best of WCW PPVs means individual PPVs like best of Halloween Havoc, Great American Bash, Bash At The Beach, ect.
Dibiase doc will finally be out in early 2014 I’m calling it now
that would be great for me dibiase was the heel to stand out the most when i was kid i was so enamored with him. very underrated imo but still macho man should be first.
Release some more unreleased match sets with John Cena,Stone Cold,Randy Savage
I voted for WCW Best Pay-Per-Views. While this is a great idea, seems like they might be missing out on future WCW releases, they could break them up and make them last longer, like “Best of Halloween Havoc” and so forth.
I like more variety. Just do volumes instead.
Shawn Michaels – Best Matches
I’m as big of an HBK fan as anyone, but honestly let’s take a look, there’s been…
‘From the Vault’ 2 disc
‘Heartbreak and Triumph’ 3 disc
‘My Journey’ 3 disc
‘D-Generation X’ 1 disc
‘New & Improved DX’ 3 disc
‘DX: One Last Stand’ 3 disc
‘Shawn Michaels: Boyhood Dream’ 1 disc
‘Shawn Michaels: Superstar Series’ 1 disc
‘Bret vs Shawn’ 3 disc.
That’s 20 discs. Plus consider all the other releases that have included an HBK match or two. I think all of Shawn Michaels ‘Best Matches’ are out by now. Even if they change it to a “Shawn Michaels: Unreleased Matches” type of set, how much is left? It would have to focus on pre-WWE or very early WWE stuff.
Anyway, I voted for Savage. WCW PPVs would have been my second choice.
It would have to be unreleased. There is plenty that they could do, mostly tv stuff.
A Shawn unreleased makes sense. I think there’s still a lot from his 2002-2010 run that could be released.
Actually, there’s a whole stack of Shawn Michaels matches that have yet to be released – hardly any of his matches on Raw from 2003-05 have been released, and many of his PPV bouts in the Blu-Ray era aren’t available on that format. Lots of TV matches from 1994-97 are unreleased, too. I for one absolutely want this set in 2014.
I want all of them.
Macho Man Doc.
The best Battle Royals in Wrestling history
Kevin Nash set
Best of the United States Title
ECW Volume 3
Scott Hall set
Top 25 Giants
Chris Jericho matches
Ted Dibiase set
Macho is must but no undertaker or booker t documentaries plus matches this must be a joke
Booker is long overdue. He hasn’t had anything, ever. Must be racism.
I agree with those choosing the WCW choice because of the previously mentioned reasons. It got my vote, almost from a matter of elimination.
I will say though, if the RVD dvd had a documentary I would’ve voted for that. I think his one release he’s had is an excellent dvd. It was made well before he finally won the big one, so there’s plenty more to cover.
almost everybody (referring to a person; not pay per views) in the poll already has at least one three-disc set to their name. austin and michaels have about fifteen discs between them.
dusty has been done already; a two/three-disc set on goldust would be great. rvd’s one of a kind dvd is good enough, as is jericho’s. nothing else can be said about savage, without input from the man himself, which sadly cannot happen.
rey’s best material is already out, and not much more can be said on cena or batista.
and the rock? he’s had a few sets already, and his last sit-down was by the numbers.
conclusion: bring on the wcw ppv set! especially the ones in japan.
Macho Man can still have a good bio put together. There are plenty of people still around who worked with him through all different points of his career. Larry Matysik is a big name that comes to mind right off the bat. I also like the idea of WWF possibly finding good quality footage of his ICW days, some Memphis footage…so much historical stuff.
Rey has about 3-4 DVDs dedicated to him, Rock just had one out, same with Austin (although there are a lot of Austin’s matches that could make for another good set a year or two down the line).
I’m not sure what else was expected from Rock’s bio…it was just like every bio they’ve done.
Don’t get me wrong; I’m not AGAINST the WCW set, I just feel that the Savage one has a bigger potential than the WCW set.
Why not do more than one? No reason not to.
I agree about Rey…I’d prefer Highest Flyers Volume 2. Plenty of good unused cruiserweight matches.
How in the world is the WCW PPV idea leading over a bio of RANDY F#@KING SAVAGE?!?!
Could be worse, the WWE Universe in that “Fan Council” probably all voted for Cena. 😉
You bring up a hell of a point! Lol!!
Cena was the only one I voted “Definitely would not buy” on in the survey.
Savage has a fairly good compilation. Aside from Starrcade, WCW PPVs do not. That makes it a pretty simple choice.
I’d love a second Savage comp, but I’d rather see that WCW one.
I wonder why we still haven’t even gotten the schedule. Last year we got it on September 10th and now WWE is just now getting around to polling people on September 27th?
Anyways, I was hoping for a Goldust documentary (which was reported on this site as rumored back in 2010) and not just the whole Rhodes family. I simply cannot stand Dusty. As far as Jericho goes that sounds great since we have only had one and there is a bunch of unreleased stuff especially WCW still waiting to be used. Shawn Michaels I think should be unreleased since he’s already had a bunch of sets. Class of 96 I have no idea what that is supposed to mean. I’d prefer Greatest Rivalries Austin vs Rock. Austin Unreleased would be good since he just had a set 2 years ago. Bryan and Cena are too young. Batista and RVD would be fine. Mysterio has had too many sets — I’d prefer Highest Flyers Volume 2. Savage documentary would of course be great. WCW PPVs would be the best thing for me personally but I feel that its an excuse for more already released matches but I guess you have to take what you can get. Just please DO NOT have Dusty host it! He is far too annoying and out of touch I don’t care if he was there or not.
NOW it lets me log in. Anyways I’m sure no one cares about my rambling.
Definitely Macho man,Daniel Bryan , Jericho and Wcw ppvs
Look, there’s 12 months in a fear… just put them all out! Although we could do without the John Cena documentary. Everyone will ONLY be talking positive about him right now. They should save that closer towards the end of his career.
I could be wrong, but wasn’t there a Rock vs. Austin DVD on the schedule a few years ago? That got my vote.
Yes, they didn’t go through with it.
