The old NWO dvd has long been out of print, earlier this year a release date of June 25th was stated for a release titled NWO. Don't know what the specs are.

No one said they would stop. Myself and another person questioned the comment about a WCW release making more money than a Jeff Hardy one.

I ask cause I got 1987-2000 on Tag Classics and the original 2001 DVD so I will just need to pick up the last volume?
It seems that WWE likes to release the complete Anthologies in 4 Volumes, 5 discs each. The Survivor Series one will basically be like this:

Volume 1: 1987 - 1991
Volume 2: 1992 - 1996
Volume 3: 1997 - 2001
Volume 4: 2002 - 2006

So 2007, 2008 and likely 2009 (if released during Christmas this year) will be housed differently like in slip sleeves or possibly stored under the lid (like how WM21 was under the lid in the WM Anthology)

Curious to see how they package this one. I just hope they don't cheap out like with the Summerslam Anthology and use cardboard sleeves to store the discs.

I'm surprised WWE didn't take advantage of 2006 being the 20th and releasing the complete set during the Christmas rush but i guess they didn't want to release the Royal Rumble and Survivor Series sets 3 months apart.

I didn't know the nWo DVD is out of print. I love that DVD, the documentary section is great even if the facts are fuzzy at best.

it came out during the time where WWE had a grace period where they could show the Attitude scratch logo which i think was around May-Aug 2002. After Sept. all references to WWF had to be blurred and bleeped out.

Hulk Still Rules, HHH the Game and HHH That Damn Good were OOP within a couple of months or so after their release.

I think they could use it until November 2002.

Not trying to sound rude, but how can they put the 2009 Survivor Series in the set, if the Anthology will be released before the Pay Per View is even broadcast live on TV?

They probably have invented a time machine....But seriously, I would imagine they won't do that OR it will come out just in time for x-mas so that 2009 is included. I didn't read the pwi link so I don't know if a release date was stated.

The other possibility, although unlikely, is that there will be a mail in voucher (online code?) in the set that you will be able to redeem to have Survivor Series 2009 sent to you upon its release.

Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume IX

If the WWE does in fact put out another WCW dvd, my guess would be a 3 disc set of the best matches from the Clash Of The Champions. What do you guys think?? Because I can't see it being Super Brawl, or Halloween Havoc, and such since those ppv's were only out from 89 or 91. Yet the Clash Of The Champions has a real significant meaning to it being the first one was televised against Wrestlemania 4. Plus I have around 90% of the Clash Of The Champions already and I have to say they were better than the ppv's were back then.

Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume IX

that nwo dvd was made in 2002, but it was far from great
the first half of the doc was great, but then they skip over the next 4 years and spend the final half on vince's watered down nwo group
then the extras only have a few matches
i wish they would do a 3 disk with the FULL nwo story, 3 hour doc that covers everything then the rest could be all the best matches and moments

there are so many wcw releases they could do, and they have had years to do it, atleast 3 years and all we got is the starrcade

wwe does a great job with ecw, wwe, even macho man is finally getting his long overdue dvd, but keep giving wcw NOTHING besides starrcade dvd, by now there should atleast be 3 or 4 wcw dvds

maybe since starrcade is selling so good it can do the same that rise and fall did for ecw, that dvd opened up the floodgates for a few ecw dvds that needed to get out

Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume IX

just checked the billboard top selling sports dvd

looks like starrcade is still number 1 in its 3rd week, 3 weeks all number 1
and legends of wrestling collection dvd in its 1st week only came in at 8th

so that should put to rest how great wcw dvds would sell, and starrcade is not even the best one they could do for wcw

Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume IX

I think the reason why they didn't release a WCW themed DVD before the Starrcade was likely because WWE thought there probably isn't enough money to be made on it and not many true fans.

The sale for the Starrcade DVD so far should change their mind and release more sets. I would love to full ppvs like a Complete Starrcade or Halloween Havoc Anthology, but they probably won't. Instead we'll probably get DVDs that have compilation of Halloween Havoc or Bash at the Beach's best matches, which is fine by me.

Looking forward to the Savage DVD and curious to see how the cover will look.

Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume IX

If they do make more WCW dvds, at this point they will probably do a "Rise and Fall of WCW" type collection. 3 discs. Disc One 2hr Documentary, Disc Two Matches, Disc Three
matches and memorable moments/promos.

I can see Nitro also getting it's own 3 disc dvd set

Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume IX

You have all talked about Superbrawl, Halloween Havoc & Bash At The Beach.
But none of you have talked about THE GREAT AMERICAN BASH!
Other than a best of Monday Nitro set, this The G.A.B would probably get released sooner, becuase WWE still dose those PPVs. I think that after the Survivor Series set, they should release a King Of The Ring set, with all of the PPV events, the tournaments that was held before it became a PPV, and the 2006 & 2007 tournaments.

According to Silvervision the extras for No Way Out are:

Todd Grisham interviews the winner of the Elimination Chamber Match for the World Heavyweight Championship

Unsanctioned Match
Shane McMahon vs. Randy Orton
Raw February 16, 2009


Great to see they included the Unsanctioned Fight, the ending was awesome!

Yeah it was good to see Triple H like that. Reminds me of the Heel McMahon
Era Triple H of around 2000.

Nice feature. I'm so happy to see WWE including matches from TV on PPVs again. They've done that recently with No Mercy and Survivor Series.
