What is the deal with regards to old WWF & WCW ppvs coming out on dvd in the future? The WWE appears to be releasing a fair few compilation dvds of late. I would much rather they release all the old Wrestlemanias Starrcades etc...

From what I can tell the name change to WWE does not affect old ppvs from around 1996 and earlier? Is this correct?

Also did the purchase of WCW include rights to all their old ppvs such as old Starrcades etc...?

I dont know too much about WCW,

If WWE release a DVD with an essential selection of the WCW will be great...

Did the Ric Flair DVD have WCW matterial? If this is correct, what are they waiting for ? ....release a WCW years DVD

I still think that a WM box set will be coming soon after WM XX. It's been a while since they've released such a set, and never done it on DVD.

The problem with a good chunk of their footage is that it includes the scratch logo from the attitude years...and as we know, they can't use that logo anymore thanks to the lawsuit from the wildlife people. This means that any time they want to use footage from that period they have to go through and blur out each and every appearance of that logo, which could take a hell of a long time to do. In other words, unless they think they've got a really hot property to sell, they won't use it.

As for WCW, my understanding is that they just don't think it will sell. Ric Flair's DVD has plenty of WCW stuff on it, as did Hogan's DVD and as will the upcoming cage matches DVD. Problem is, WWE sees WCW as a dead brand with little/no remaining appeal, and since their home video department can only do so much I would imagine that mass releasing any WCW stuff is real low on the priorities list. The idea of a Starrcade comp, for example, holds a hell of a lot more appeal to me than a Trish Stratus DVD, but then I'm only one person and most likely in the minority. I don't think we'll see the WCW footage in any capacity beyond the occasional clip here and there and match as an extra on another DVD...until we get an all-wrestling channel, that is.

"Stone cold says so" and "Buried alive" are being DVD released , with no extras, for $10 as a water test to see if moving old titles will work.

"Buried Alive"? The old IYH show? I suppose that would make sense with Survivor Series supposedly going to feature such a match.

When will those DVD's be released? Any word on the Mick Foley and Kurt Angle releases? Will there ever be a Bret Hart release? Finally, what's the quickest way to find out WWE DVD news?

Other than the newsboards posting release info, I usually find that going to Amazon and searching WWE under DVDs is a pretty good way to get an idea of what's coming out. They usually keep it up to date.

Ric Flair and No Mercy Street on the 18th of Nov, Sone Cold and Buried Alive on the 25th of Nov. I have a friend in video sales who let's me know what's up with dvd releases.

I saw an ad for the Bloodbath Steel Cages DVD, and it looks like the Magnum vs. Tully, Bret vs. Owen, and Rock -n- Roll vs. Andersons matches will be shown in their entirety, along with 8 others.

      Bret himself said on the lastest LAW that we could see a DVD or coffee table book in the next six months. Fingers crossed.

There has been talk of a Bret Hart DVD off and on. Apparently this was something that he and Vince discussed when they supposedly made peace over the holidays last year.

IIRC, they have or had a bunch of those old releases on DVD on amazon.com some time ago. They were just re-releases of WWF Home Video, no extras or anything. But I'm not sure if they're still actively selling them or not.
