Two new WWE DVDs coming 6/24

From the Bits: Sony will be releasing WWE: Backlash 2003 and WWE: From the Vault - Shawn Michaels on 6/24. No specs yet, but I hope they get that HBK disc right!

This will put a rest to the myths behind logo censoring on DVDs once itís out!

Its a good thing the WWE is working on releasing the footage from earlier years. My only question is that a Bret Hart dvd HAS to follow. I am sure the WWE has been flooded with emails and letters for a Bret Hart dvd. Bret "Hitman" Hart was my favorite wrestler growing up and I would buy that in a heartbeat!

Unless he returns I doubt they will.

I have to agree with Class on this one.. WWE only markets stuff that's currently on television. If a wrestler isn't on the current roster, then they don't exsist. :/

Not only HBK has a DVD coming out, Rey Mysterio is coming out with one too.

Too bad all of Rey's good matches came before he was in the WWE.

But the WWE owns the video library of WCW and will soon own the video library of ECW. I'm sure much of the DVD will be from those matches.

Now if only they could get some of his AAA matches!

Last I heard, the chances weren't good for the "WWE" in getting the ECW library. I hope it stays that way, personally. We'd never see ECW events again if they got the library.

Them getting the ECW library is pretty much guaranteed now.

I'm praying they do this HBK tape justice. I'm still sour over them leaving out the WM6 match between Ultimate Warrior and Hogan on Hogan's recent DVD release.

They left that match off of Hogan's DVD, because Hogan lost. It is however on the Wrestlemania X-8 DVD.

WWE owns the WCW, ECW and AWA libraries already.

Bret Hart met with Vince McMahon in Florida a couple of months ago.

I watched an interview with Bret on Canada's talk show "Off the Record, so they are the same page. Vince also gave Bret full access to the WWE vault , so he could work on his biography. I'm sure we will see a Bret Hart DVD in the future

I bet they'll release a Bret Hart DVD, just not anytime this year.

They don't own the ECW library yet and there has been no word lately on if they'll get it.

Not all of the events are out in Europe. And they're R0 BTW. Atleast the ones I bought were.

ummm....where did you get the info that they own ECW and AWA. It's not true (at least not at the moment)

Enough of them are anyway. So far I got these:

R1:

Best of Cactus Jack
Barely Legal

R0 UK:

Heatwave 99

What would you recommend? (hardcore ones please)

Been watching Confidential from the start and I notice when they did a feature on DDP and more recently one on Chris Jericho, they had some AWA footage. How did WWE get AWA footage?

The company acquired it. They are out to get as much wrestling footage as they can so that they can start offering it for sale "on demand" on cable systems, as well as using it in their television pieces. They recently won the bid in bankruptcy court to get their hands on the ECW footage as well.

I still won't take it as official until I hear something more concrete.

Go around in denial, fine with me. The info is from the former webmaster and and employee of ECW. But, believe what you want.

If Bret ever returns, he won't be wrestling, that's for sure. He is nearly crippled. After his severe concussion he sustained which pretty much ended his career, he has had at least one stroke. "The Excellence of Execution" isn't quite so healthy anymore, I'm sad to say.
