On the recent Austin DVD, there is a match with him a Pillman from CLASH OF THE CHAMPIONS. You can clearly see Tony Schiovone and Jesse Ventura sitting at ringside doing the match, but Ventura's voice is blanked out.

My question is Why is this? It's rather annoying.

They wanted to save money and they knew people would buy the DVDs anyway.

    In 1987, while negotiating his contract as a WWF commentator, Ventura waived his rights to royalties on videotape sales when he was falsely told that only feature performers received such royalties. In 1991, having discovered that other non-feature performers received royalties, Ventura brought an action for fraud, misappropriation of publicity rights, and unjust enrichment in Minnesota state court against Titan Sports. The case was removed to federal court, and Ventura won an $801,333.06 jury verdict on the last claim. The judgment was affirmed on appeal, and the case,[8] 65 F.3d 725 (8th Cir.1995), is an important result in the law of restitution.

    Now because of Ventura's victorious lawsuit, whenever the WWF/WWE wants to use his commentary for a mass marketed VHS/DVD, Ventura gets a percentage of the sales.

The Ventura-removal was particularly annoying on Mick Foley's Greatest Hits and Misses DVD, when he battled Vader on WCW Saturday Night.

If there is one consistent in wrestling, you can always bank on WCW Worldwide hauling out stars that could main event ANYWHERE in the country! Like tonight, featuring Scott Norton, Dave Taylor, and the Faces of Fear.
