    Re: Official WWE Upcoming DVD Thread

    The Andre DVD is one of those rare occasions where I'm looking forward to the documentary more than the matches (the other ones being True Story of WrestleMania and Bret vs Shawn). The only two matches I don't already own are the handicapped match (probably just a squash) and the Steel Cage Match (which sounds kinda good). I've been a fan of Andre for as long as I've been a wrestling fan. I hate that most of the matches he's known for are from the later years of his career when he was not in as good of shape. If he was still alive he'd be #1 on my list of wrestlers I want to meet.

    Keep in mind it's not an official WWE release. The matches are purely bonus and frankly, I'm surprised that there's as many as there are. After all of these years, I don't know why we never got a proper Andre WWE DVD.

    The death of WWE DVDs is officially approaching. Starting in 2020, the only DVDs that the WWE will now releasing will be for PPVs. DVDs for superstars or specific themes are now finished. The final non-PPV DVD expected to be released will be WWE 24: The Best of 2019. It's pretty appropriate since superstar based DVDs first came out twenty years ago in 1999.

    Honestly surprised it's taken this long. Especially since, and I could be wrong, they don't really make documentaries for the superstar specific ones it's usually all match compilations and that's all easy enough to find on the network.

    Seems you're right. From what I can tell by going through match listings, the last proper documentary the WWE released on DVD, not counting the Andre DVD since that was an HBO special, was for The Kevin Owens Story back in mid 2017. Sometimes they have the wrestler sit down to talk briefly in between matches, but proper documentaries have been dead for ages.

    It's sad. WWE dvds were a huge part of my fandom for over 10 years.

    Best of 1996 WWE feels like "here's a bunch of Shawn Michaels until Bret comes back in November".

    Just about sums up the whole year, tbh.

    Re: Official WWE Upcoming DVD Thread

    The only thing I can think of is that it’s the 25 year anniversary of those matches, but that seems like a stretch given they’ve never released sets like this before.

    I think it's more about the need of releasing HBK vs Diesel in beautiful 480i quality since it's so difficult finding it on DVD.

    There's also going to be a Drew McIntyre DVD (one disc, I think) covering his NXT run through 2021.

    Huh. I never realized that Mero/Hunter had never been released on a Best Of. I had just assumed that it must have been on some Triple H DVD or the IYH DVD. Meanwhile, even the Free For All was released on a pair of VHS tapes back in the day.

    Even though it's not nearly as good of a match as the Beware of Dog match, I can see why the IC Title switch from Raw got the DVD releases instead.
