Exclusive: Brand New WWE DVD Revealed, Future of PPVs on Blu-ray

July 11, 2011 by Daniel Bee

WWEDVDNews can reveal that a brand new WWE DVD will be released in October that has not previously been talked about.

In a follow up to WWE: The Ladder Match (2007), The Ladder Match 2: Crash & Burn is incoming for October 11th, 2011.

It’s down on WWE’s schedule right now, to be released on both DVD and Blu-ray formats. To give you an idea of why they are making a sequel, the original Ladder Match DVD was very successful and sold over 103,000 units in the first 8 weeks of release.

Here’s the official synopsis for the set

It’s the veritable definition of “high risk, high reward” in sports entertainment—a rich reward hangs high above the ring and a superstar must climb a ladder to win the match and retrieve the prize. But the falls from the ladders can be devastating, and the punishment one can inflict when using the cold steel ladders as weapons can be brutal. The first Ladder Match DVD in 2007 was one of the biggest-selling DVDs in WWE History, and now the Ladder Match is back with an all-new collection of memorable bouts from WWE, WCW, ECW, and more in The Ladder Match 2: Crash & Burn.

We can also confirm that WWE Night of Champions 2011 is scheduled to be released on DVD only, no Blu-ray, and hits stores on October 18th. The only upcoming PPV we have listed for Blu-ray on our schedule from now until then is SummerSlam.

    I would like to know if the WWE The Ladder Match 2 – Crash And Burn DVD is in format NTSC or PAL?

  2. Bryan says:

    Don’t think that will happen John23 unfortunately I think they canceled that Blu Ray. Good news is the Punk vs Cena match is bound to be on the Best PPV Matches 2011 Blu later this year, bad news the MITB Blu would have had all of Punks great rants and segments as extras (sigh) hopefully they will be on the best of Raw 2011 Bu (fingers crossed)

  3. John23 says:

    I want Money In The Bank 2011 on Blu Ray!

  4. Anonymous says:

    hope they put scott hall vs goldberg vs bret hart vs sid from wcw nitro 99 for the u.s title.

  5. Matt says:

    I’m sure there will be some repeats of matches that weren’t covered on the first set but were released on others but that’s no big deal for me. I’m they include the following:
    Dusty vs Tully Bunkhouse Ladder Match, Bash ’87
    Hardys vs E&C Raw’s debut on TNN
    Credible vs Dreamer Guilty as Charged ’99, Heatwave ’00 (either one)
    Team Angle vs Eddie & Tajiri Judgement Day ’03
    3 Count vs Jung Dragons New Blood Rising
    Hardys vs WGTT One Night Stand ’07
    Morrison vs Sheamus TLC ’10
    Miz vs Lawler TLC, Raw
    Christian vs Del Rio Extreme Rules ’11

    Not the first sequel. At least “Before They Were Superstars.” The first might have sold a few extra copies due to the fact that it had Benoit’s name on it and it was out at the time of the murders/suicide. June 5 release date. So, could have been oversold as collector’s item. We’ll see how the 2nd set does.

    Glad to see WWE are releasing a follow up to The Ladder Match DVD.It’s also good to see that they plan to include matches from WCW and ECW.Will definatly be buying this DVD.

    Just to answer cjs question wwe has released a few sequels but the only one that springs to mind straight away is before they were superstars vol 2 and best of raw series?

  9. Anonymous says:

    I hope they put Goldberg vs. Scott Hall on there

  10. LP1 says:

    Btw, Mania 10 was Shawn vs Razor, not Bret vs Razor. Also I don’t see them including any Money In The Bank matches on this dvd set because I heard they were considering putting out a Money In The Bank Anthology set some time in the future. It wouldn’t make sense to include MITB matches on this dvd if they’re gonna do an Anthology down the line.

  11. Dave says:

    The WM10 Ladder Match sucks? Bahahahaha. Yeah okay.

  12. indyfan says:

    that is really good news about another Ladder Match dvd. it will be interesting to see if they have repeats. I don’t think they will because they mention the other dvd in the synopsis,Bret vs Razor from WM 10 will be on it since it wasn’t on the first one. Wm 10 ladder match kinda sucks IMO. Lets hope we get some stairway to hell matches from ECW!!!!!

  13. Daniel Bee says:

    They are still on Best Buy’s site but considering only a SummerSlam Blu-ray is down on the schedule we use (connected with WWE) it would appear they have both been cancelled just like in the UK.

    Whenever there was a Best Buy exclusive Blu-ray they would not appear on the schedule I use, but if that’s the case for these then SummerSlam wouldn’t be there either. We shall see for sure soon.

  14. Michael says:

    Best Buy still has blu ray releases listed on their site for Capitol Punishment & MITB

  15. SRB says:

    I’m also attending night of champs in Buffalo. I was also hoping for a blu ray with some extras. oh well…

  16. CJ says:

    Is this the first sequel for a DVD WWE has done?

  17. It’s going to be tricky for them to find some Gems that were not on the First Ladder match DVD, Can’t think of many more from the 2000’s that were not Showcased on the first. Definitely not past 2006 at least.

  18. LaxBandit says:

    Crud – I’m attending the Night Of Champions PPV and was hoping that the event would be released on Blu-Ray. Oh well!

  19. Steven says:

    Hoping for the Money in the Bank Ladder Match from WM23 where Jeff Hardy did that sick legdrop on Edge on the Ladder that was amazing. I say they won’t have any repeat Ladder matches on this dvd.

  20. Anonymous says:

    Totally unnecessary.

  21. thomas says:

    A vol. 2 of the Ladder match is a welcome edition!

  23. Daniel says:

    Great idea, can’t wait for it!

  24. Daniel Bee says:

    Why? This is all about the new Ladder Match DVD except two sentence about the PPV Blu-rays. HBK/Hart news is in another post. You’ve lost me.

  25. Truly epic news although this is surly 2 posts worth of news db

  26. Chris Smith says:

    If this features the Triangle Ladder Match from Wrestlemania 2000 again I will jump out of a window!

  27. Anonymous says:

    Hope it has some rare Smackdown/RAW matches.

  28. LP1 says:

    Just a correction. Night Of Champions is not being replaced. Vengeance will be taking the place of Bragging Rights in late October.

  29. Anonymous says:

    hope will see goldberg vs scott hall in a taser/ladder match from wcw souled out 99. too bad we want see chris benoit vs jeff jarrett for the u.s title.

  30. SRB says:

    should be a great set. the first one was a true classic. great collection.

  31. Anonymous says:

    Can’t Wait To Get My Hands On This One. Hope It Lives Up To The First Ladder Match DVD.

  32. John23 says:

    The Ladder Match is one of My Favorite WWE DVD’s. This new set sounds really Awesome. I just hope to see alot of stuff we don’t have on the other DVDs. Blu Ray!

  33. Rocko says:

    I sure hope this isn’t just a collection of newer matches. They really need to dig through the archives and give us some rare matches, not just all the TLC/MITB matches from the last few years.

  34. bosshoglarry87 says:

    Possibly more WCW or ECW Ladder Matches on here?? Guerrero-Syxx from Souled Out 97 for the United States Championship was a classic.

  35. Daniel Bee says:

    Good call Supersonic – I want.

  36. Supersonic says:


    Now THAT is a Christmas gift.

  37. Banjo says:

    cool! I predict there a lot of Jeff Hardy and Edge on this set.

    I would put John Morrison vs. Sheamus from TLC 2010 on it
