Some interesting news today concerning the possibility of similar WWE Tagged Classics DVD’s (WWF re-releases) to that of the UK, being released to another country.
That country is Australia. Speaking with the official distributor of WWE DVDs in the region, they disclosed that they are hoping to release some classic PPV events next year, such as the 2001 catalog. Nothing solid is confirmed as yet but they did reference Silver Vision’s Tagged Classics series in the UK, saying if it happens they will be the same as those.
Therefore it looks like this licensee in Australia, as was the case in the UK, is legally allowed to re-release the archive footage because they were a innocent third party amid the court battle for the WWF name, which saw the Home Video catalog being removed from sale in 2002.
It all sounds promising for Aussie fans!
They are available in New Zealand from here http://www.trademe.co.nz/Members/Listings.aspx?member=470561 and are region free so you don’t need a multi region dvd player!
When in the year would this happen if it does happen
Only Shock (the distributor) could tell you Zack. They hinted at it but didn’t confirm anything.
Aussie, Aussie, Aussie… Oi! Oi! Oi! So pumped mate.
Any New News on this article
Nope, only a possibility for later in the year.
I am pumped but i hope it wont cost alot but still finally us aussies can get old wwf pvvs without needing to buy a multi region dvd player or anything. Awesome
really great releases that can help you add some interesting footage on your collection! some of them really can NOT be found!
This would be awesome, but hopefully they dont start at 2001, at least go back to the 90s, would give us the chance to finally get the survivor series 97-2001 since they wont release the anthology and all the king of the rings instead of the best of.
Why no Canadians?
YESSSS AUSTRALIAN TAGGED CLASSICS FTW!
It is really doubtful NA will get tagged classics. The closet was those double packs they had from 2003 and 2004.
You can always get a region free dvd player which are cheap and get the UK tagged classics from ebay or Amazon.co.uk. I live in Canada and did that. Was definitely worth it, some say the frame rate from PAL to NTSC would make them unwatchable but i think it’s fine.
Are they available in the states too? I am asking because I’d buy them if so.
Not available in the states. It looks like only overseas licensees can release them. Maybe WWE could make it happen at home too if they really wanted, I’m not sure anymore!
After a word in my ear I would like to stress nothing is confirmed as yet for Australia, it’s just a possibility. Though I think I made that clear in the article.
Any chance of the states ever getting these?
fuck yeah im aussie i hope its happens woooohooo
@Brett Mix, you can also just order them from the Amazon UK site. They ship to the US pretty quickly. I’ve ordered from them in the past and received the DVD’s in 6 days.
I’m Canadian and for us North American’s, you can always order Tagged classic’s on E-Bay or go through paypal from an inside trader to get PPV events like I did. But still, congrats Australa
HELL YEAH, for once australia is good
Hopefully they give out to New Zealand as well since we are right next to Aussies
Like this comment if you clicked on play! 😉
Why can’t the USA get any kind of love here?
Yes! good thing im Australian!
Oh Hell Yeah! About time we get something.
Good news for Australian fans 🙂
oh man please let this be true it would be great if Shock (the Australian WWE Distributor)can get the license to tagged classics
