WrestleMania X-Seven, you mean?

Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume IX

Thats awkward. Did Best Buy come across a couple extra copies in their warehouse and decide to get rid of them?

Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume IX

i started to collect WWE/WWF dvds in the summer of 2002 and i'm glad i managed to find all of the 2000-2001 dvds that were getting discontinued around that and different stores like Walmart, Future Shop, HMV, Blockbuster, etc. were having great sales on them. I think the best deal i came across was when i found Summerslam 2001 and Survivor Series 2000 at Walmart that were 2 for $10 in 2002.

I feel good that i didn't have to pay the highly inflated price.

I think the most i ever paid for a single WWE/WWF DVD was about $45 for brand new RAW Homecoming in 2007.

The only WWF ones i need and still trying to find are:

Attitude Collection: Eve of Destruction
Attitude Collection: Tables, Ladders and Chairs
Attitude Collection: Undertaker - Phenom (very rare)
Attitude Collection: Best of RAW Vol. 1 (i have the 2 disc set with Vol. 2 so this i'm not concerned over getting)
Attitude Collection: Best of Wrestlemania
Attitude Collection: Best of Survivor Series

Must be. I still don't regret paying $76 for my copy. The fact is, it's long out of print, hard to come by, and even if it's available for $15 for a while, it won't always be.

Unfortunetly, I started collecting wrestling DVDs in summer 2004, so I missed the boat.

The really haunting part is that I worked at Sam Goody from late '01 to Summer '02, and vividly remember handling copies of WrestleMania XV, WrestleMania 2000, WrestleMania X-7, and a bunch of other DVDs that I would pay through the nose for now. Now, whenever I'm unsure about picking up a wrestling DVD, I almost always get it, because it could end up rare (recently with WrestleMania XX, The Rock: Just Bring It!, TNA No Surrender '07, and TNA Turning Point '06.

Same here, back in late-2002, i saw brand new copies of WM2000 and Summerslam 99 DVDs at Blockbuster, i didn't pay much attention to it so i didn't get it. Few weeks later i went there again and both those were still on the shelf so i just bought them ($20 a piece) thinking about it today i made good choice since WM2000 goes for over $150 brand new.

Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume IX

I checked my local K Mart and couldn't find any of the advertised DVDs nor did any of the employees have a clue. I'll check another store tomorrow (hopefully with better luck).

For those of you that are able to find the DVDs, you can get a coupon for $5 off a $50 in store purchase if you sign up for emails from Kmart (there should be a banner at the top of kmart.com).

Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume IX

I actually found the display at my K Mart. I checked electronics first, but it was in this display at the front entrance. I didn't see it when I walked in because they had it tucked behind another endcap display.

Much to my surprise, they actually had 3 or 4 copies of Wrestlemania XX, which I picked up along with Wrestlemania 22.

Question for those of you who bought XX when it originally came out: Was it originally released in the cardboard style packaging that all the ones from 21 to current seem to be? The copy of XX I got is in an Amaray (plastic) case, like the early WM releases were. It doesn't even say how many discs there are on the back of the case, but it feels like 2 or 3, weight-wise.

Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume IX

thats the re release then. if i recall, the original was released as a 3 disc, then cut down to a 2 disc.

Just ordered WM X-7 from the best buy site, its backordered but the site says it is usually shipped between 1 and 2 weeks (crosses fingers)

No, it was different. The box was like the box for the Hulk Hogan anthology: it was a very solid, study cardboard, only like the WM 21-24 DVDs, the box folded out.

I originally bought that copy back in '04, only problem was that the plastic on the cardboard kept falling off, even after I glued it back on. So I gave up and bought a new copy. To make it clear, though, both the original release and 2005 amaray have 3 discs.

And correct me if I'm wrong, includes the wonderful practice of stacking all 3 discs on top of each other.

Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume IX

Thanks. I just opened it to make sure all the discs were in place and scratch free. Weird packaging, how they're just 3 discs stacked on top of each other onto a single hub.

Yes, they are, but it's not as ungainly as it sounds. The hub is deep enough to hold them are sturdily. They would have been better off with a plastic flap in the middle to hold the other two discs, but this works fine, too.

Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume IX

Has anyone heard anything about Wal-Mart Canada having a sale for Wrestlemania? Last year I got all of the WM Anthologies for 14.98 each! They usually have a big cube or end cap.

The local K-Mart here had the displays out as well. Like yourself, I was very surprised to see WM XX actually there.

Was also surprised to see the previously Wal Mart Exclusive, Greatest Superstars of WrestleMania 2 discer there as well for only $12.99.

The Undertaker Tombstone set was packaged this way as well.

Question on the K-mart sale ... do any of you know if the Sears Essentials (which used to be K-marts) stores are also carrying these WWE dvds??? Thanks!

The ad shows 20, 22 & 24. It would make sense for it to be on sale as well, no reason to skip it.

Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume IX

Went to K-Mart today, their display wasn't even set up, the signs were on a table and the DVDs were still in boxes. I opened up the boxes myself and took what i wanted out. They had a couple Edge, Austin, DX, Cena, HBK sets, along with Saturday Night's Main Event. No Manias. Picked up DX, Edge, Austin & SNME for $15 each though, so not bad. Plus i got the $10 off mania

I've been checking stores. They just had a display over Christmas, so I wasn't sure they'd put one up again so soon or if they'd send it to Zellers instead.

At any rate, post here if you do find one!

Re: Official Wrestling DVD Discussion Thread - Volume IX

The latest WWE magazine is listing Superfly: The Jimmy Snuka Story to be released on April 14. The same date as the Greatest Superstars of the 90s so this is probably not right but may mean its coming soon. (Like the Jericho set!?)
