Since last week you’ve been hearing that WWE is going forward with the Triple H DVD that they had planned for 2011, but later postponed for next year. We can now say for definite it’s on the way for 2012 and exclusively reveal some first details.
We can confirm the new release will be a 3-Disc DVD collection, and for the first time WWE will produce a Blu-ray on Triple H’s career, which will be a 2-Disc set.
Like The Rock’s upcoming set, WWE have not yet made the decision on a name for the DVD, so as of now it’s listed on the schedule as simply “Triple H”.
We can also confirm the release date previously revealed at Amazon, of March 13th, 2012 – in between the Home Video releases of Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber.

WWE: Triple H [2-Disc Blu-ray]

Triple H continues to build upon his enduring legacy.
The 13-time world champion upped his game in 2011 first taking on Undertaker in a brutal No Holds Barred Match at WrestleMania XXVII and then shocking the world when he relieved his father-in-law, Vince McMahon of power to take control of Raw as the new COO. Triple H continued on even with a superstar walkout forcing him out of his position, followed by memorable bouts with CM Punk and former friend Kevin Nash.
Now the Game looks back at his storied career, as this DVD collects more than two dozen of his greatest matches, along with all-new interviews where Triple H reflects on these touchstone moments throughout the years.
Regarding the DVD and Triple H’s popularity, WWE had the following to say,
“The first Triple H 3-Disc superstar DVD in 5 years! His last release, Triple H: The King of Kings (3/25/08) sold over 101k units in 8 weeks. Contains all-new interviews and matches never released on DVD.
Triple H continues to be one of the most popular superstars in WWE history, as observed in a recent survey where Triple H was second only to Stone Cold Steve Austin in levels of popularity (and higher than The Rock!).
Triple H’s mainstream popularity has been growing as a result of starring in two motion pictures in 2011, The Chaperone and Inside Out“.
Whilst we can’t be certain right now, the details we have released above seem to suggest that there will not be a documentary style portion to this release, but rather a compilation of matches with new comments from Triple H to go along with them.
Amazon is already taking pre-orders for the March 13th, 2012 release here.
