To pro wrestling fans, the video collection–whether on Blu-Ray, DVD or even VHS–is the ultimate sacred treasure. The wrestling fan’s video library collection is what defines and measures us as fans in terms of our devotion to continue to relive some of our favorite moments in wrestling history.
For the fan that this best describes, some delightful news was released earlier today, as the WWE DVD Schedule for 2013 has been updated. Back in December, Rant Sports reported on a few videos that were scheduled to hit out retail stores in 2013, however now the list has dramatically increased since that report. Take a moment to look at the scheduled and you may want to mark your calendars so you are more than ready for the releases you want to pick up.

A few of these titles stand out tremendously to me. The “Bret Hart: The Dungeon Collection” is a truly eyebrow raising one. Are these going to be actual matches that The Hitman has had archived from his training at his family in home facility “The Dungeon”? Or will it be never released matches that Hart hand picked himself? Either way, we’re in for a treat with this DVD release.
The other DVD that stands out is “Best of Madison Square Garden”. This one makes me smile because a few years ago, in conversation with a few friends of mine, I suggested that this should be a DVD released, giving the rich history of the worlds most famous arena. Some of the best of Bruno Sammartino, Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart, and Stone Cold Steve Austin will definitely be on this DVD along with some other legends who have graced the arena.
Overall, these are some intiguing releases and should not disappoint.
