Breaking: WWE To Release ‘Top Giants in Wrestling History’ DVD & Blu-Ray

We can reveal that WWE has a new “Top Giants in Wrestling History” DVD planned!

Early indications are that this one will be the full, three disc DVD and two disc Blu-ray standard. A release time of October is expected and worldwide distribution looks to be scheduled.

The idea for a “Top Giants” WWE DVD first appeared on a fan survey issued by the company late last year, with the following brief synopsis attached to it:

Top Giants in Wrestling History: 20 profiles on WWE’s Best Giants (Andre, John Studd, Kamala, King Kong Bundy, Big Show, Mark Henry, Gorilla Monsoon, etc).

That survey also had several other key titles listed which would go on to be made and released on DVD/Blu-ray by WWE, or are coming soon later this year. Those are “Ultimate Warrior Matches”, “Sting Matches”, “Best of RAW: Not on RAW”, “OMG! Part 2 (WCW History)”, “Paul Heyman”, “Wrestling Factions”, and “Best of Great American Bash”.

    im just wondering how many giants there actually were in wwe history. alot of men were large but not that tall that i would class them as “giant”. im thinking of pure giants. men like andre, giant gonzeles, reese, big show, great khali, giant silva, giant haystacks, maybe kurrgan.. or hillbilly jim or that guy from peewee herman movie

  3. Erik G. says:

    i wonder if Bertha Faye and Nicole Bass could appear on this.

  4. Erik G. says:

    Ooh, I just thought of something I want: Undertaker vs Vader from IYH: Canadian Stampede. Vader in general needs to be on this.

  5. TedFox says:

    Looks like an interesting release, although with 20 giants being profiled I doubt they will give enough to attention to each one. Hope I’m wrong.

    Would love to see the WWE Around the World set made. Would be interesting to see what unreleased footage there is.

    • Erik G. says:

      Around The World sounds like an easy sell. I can’t imagine it not happening. Personally, I also want to see it.

  6. Erik G. says:

    I wonder if Big Bossman counts as a giant. He was pretty big early in his WWE career and quite good, also. He could really move.

    WWE will find a way to include The Oddities, I’m sure. Someone there seems to have an affinity for them.

  7. SCSA says:

    Kewl comments from every1, n yes it sounds okay as long as it has a great documentary & as long as they add Yokozuna’s first WWF Title match against Bret Hart at WM9.

    (Even though Hogan came n beat him for the title, the match between Hart n Yokozuna was one of my favourite matches of all time)!

  8. Erik G. says:

    I am looking forward to this. If they focus on the 1990’s giants that could move well and have good matches then that will help. Disc one should be the classic giants, disc two the more athletic ones, and disc three the modern giants.

    So for the fourth quarter we already know this, probably a Randy Savage documentary, and probably Best of Nitro volume 3(just my hunch). So if all that is true we only have one more set to guess about. Maybe something for Smackdown since the 15th anniversary is upcoming.

  9. RCS1988 says:

    This set should be good, as long as they include rare matches.

    • Erik G. says:

      Hopefully a decent amount of live events, Coliseum Video matches, and tv matches instead of the usual PPV content.

  10. Nicolas Hebert says:

    YOKOZUNA!!!! My favorite biggest man in WWF history!

    • Erik G. says:

      He was pretty good. He never gets featured because his era wasn’t popular. So it’ll be good to see him.

    • Vincenzzzzzo says:

      Yokozuna was awesome. He was Samoan, and I’ve never seen a Samoan who couldn’t get it done in the ring in all the years I’ve been watching wrestling. Great lineage.

      • David says:

        Agreed. Yokozuna was amazing for such a big guy, he moved around so well in the ring.

        Samoan’s have that crazy athletic genes, its basically given, no matter how big they are. Rikishi and Umaga were the same. Always was a fan of those two as well.

        • Vincenzzzzzo says:

          Yeah I was a big fan of Umaga too. I didn’t like Rikishi’s gimmick though. I was a huge fan when he was Fatu of the Headshrinkers along with Samu.

  11. Justin F says:

    Skipping it because it’s not worth it. Maybe someday if it’s worth $5.

  12. ekkoes4life says:

    Nice to see they realise this Gigantic release too.. now, fingers cross for Attitude Era vol. 2 to come out from that survey too..

  13. Kenny says:

    Awesome! I remember thinking this would be a fun set when that survey was first distributed. It won’t be the best DVD as far as technical wrestling, but it’ll be fun as hell to see the old-school big guys work better than a lot of the good technical wrestlers of today!

  14. King1111 says:

    I’ll definitely pick this up on Blu-Ray. Always been a fan of Giants in Wrestling. Let’s hope it’s fairly in-depth and not just a match compilation

  15. SRB says:

    I think a set like this is a great idea. To give guys like John Studd and Kamala their own sets is a little crazy. So, doing it this way, as a themed release, is a much better idea. Most of these guys are from an older era, so I think we can expect a lot of stuff from the earlier days. They could spend a few minutes on each guy and then show a match from them. The only issue is what exactly defines a giant. Bundy’s big, but he’s certainly no giant like Andre. He’s got a Baston Booger type of physique, so I wonder if guys like Booger will be on it too. Interesting idea.

  16. Tyler Vain says:

    This set doesn’t interest me. A pass for me.
