My wife thought I was nuts for doing it, but oh well. If I hadn't I'm pretty sure I'd never have gotton my hands on a copy of the Triple H That Damn Good dvd. I've yet to see it used anywhere.
I didn't just hit the K-Marts once either...for about a month I was doing that once a week. Then when I noticed their stock was getting thinner and thinner I decided they were most likely not getting more of them in. Plus the gas was costing me a fortune...lol

So much for the Undertaker 15-0 Dvd being a Wal-mart exclusive...I just noticed it for pre-order on Best Buy's website.

I went to every K-Mart in the Kansas City area and bought everything I didn't have. At 5 bucks a piece, you can't pass that up.

It's the same up here. Every now and then WalMart and Zellers (a Canadian WalMart-like chain) have a big clearance display of Koch titles.

Last year I picked up a couple of the Bret discs, Superstar Graham, Greatest Managers, Stars of the 80s, the Jake disc and most of the 2005 PPV schedule for $7.97 each (Bret was $12.97).

I wish I knew when the next clearance was. :(

I think I'm going to have to move to Canada.

It reminds me when I picked up nWo: Back in Black and Hulk Still Rules for ~$7 combined on a Black Friday sale at Walgreens or when I picked up pristine copies of Triple H: That Damn Good, the Bret DVD, Tribute to the Troops, Greatest Wrestling stars of the 80s and Most Powerful Wrestling Families at a local Gamestop for $1.99 each. That same Gamestop also had all of the Wrestlemanias except for X-7 (for $12.99). And now they're the only Gamestop that's not getting rid of their DVD section around here.

Here are my pictures of The Legacy Of Stone Cold Steve Austin 3 disc set which I received in the post this morning.

Holy crap, that half-skull/half-SCSA blend is awesome. The only thing I wish this set had was the slimline cases like in the RAW XV set.

BullGooseLoony 01-25-08 06:24 PM

Looks awesome, I can't wait to pick it up.

Hey guys, just joined after seeing this thread.

Basically, I've been collecting WWF/E DVD's for a while now, and I've yet to come across a definitive list of everything the WWF/E released on DVD. So, if anyone is up for it, how about compiling a list of every release, special releases, exclusives, limited editions etc. I know there's some WWF DVD's which were only released in Region 1, exclusive to America, and aren't easy to find over here in England.

If that's a success, compiling a list of other wrestling company DVD lists such as TNA and the original ECW would be cool.

There are 2 list in the first page of this thread with most WWF/WWE releases. We need help finishing both list to actually have an ultimate list of everyhting that WWE has released on DVD throughout the years. If you are willing to help, it be gladly appreciated.

Yeah, I saw them, they seem to be the most complete list ive come across. though it would need to include exclusive releases such as the double disc 2007 ppv's from blockbuster, tagged classics etc. i have a list of all the tagged classics released to date.

Just to say, Royal Rumble 1988 was never released with the Tagged Classics set, and I have no idea why. Though I know someone who works at Silver Vision, and will be asking them soon.

For those outside of the UK/Europe, these wont be available to you, as they're only officially sold on Silver Visions website and various shops such as HMV. They're all Region 2 double disc set DVD's. No edits are made, they all have their original airings in tact, and the WWF scratch logo is not blurred nor edited, neither is theme music. They make much better viewing than the Anthology sets.

No need to ask SilverVision. The sole reason why the '88 Royal Rumble isn't included is because Coliseum Video nevered released it. The Tagged Classics are just events that have been released through Coliseum Video or WWF Home Video.

Ah, thanks for clearing that up.

Has anyone else seen this?

In the promotional boutiques, multiple lines of WWE items are displayed together, including DVDs, videogames, toys, apparel and posters. Installations will be built around March 25 releases Triple H: The King of Kings, The Greatest Superstars of Wrestlemania and No Way Out 2008.
This is the first I've heard about a Greatest Superstars of Wrestlemania set...

Since they're now broadcasting in HD, has there been any news regarding HD releases?

That makes absolutely no sense to me! The whole reason why the WWF had to change their name to WWE and blur out the scratch logo was because Vince was marketing the WWF overseas and refused to change the logo!

If anything, the scratch logo should be blurred in the UK and Europe and left in for the US releases!

As Tagged Classics are only available in the UK and Europe they are exempt from the legal constraints that restrict a USA release of such "WWF" events. It's also worth noting that Silvervision who release these titles are a distributor and the events are not directly coming from WWE Home Video.

This whole (WWF era) "Tagged Classics not available in the USA" etc etc comes up every so often, and the fact is that they can be easily imported. HMV UK, Amazon UK and the Auction site all ship to the USA and all titles are readily available. I personally import a lot of USA DVDs for my collection and I find that tracking down the exclusives is all part of the fun of collecting. It's far too easy to load by basket on Silvervision and just get the DVDs as and when they are released.

Im sure you dont have this one on the list:

Never seen that one. Is it official? Region exclusive?

Yyrkoon 01-26-08 08:23 PM

Also, Silver Vision have a 'The Best of RAW & Smackdown' series, exclusively Region 2.

I read something about they trying Blu-Ray, but is just an unconfirmed rumor.

Yyrkoon 01-26-08 09:43 PM

Ah, cool. Thanks for the info :)
