    Not surprised this went well. Warner’s Archive mentioned directly they would have put it out if WWE had not gotten the rights to it back.

    People were willing to pay for it so WWE made a nice profit on it

    There’s such an amazing archive of matches and appearances that were done to tie in with the movie’s release that it’s disappointing to see the DVD was completely bare bones. Anyone else recall the promo with Macho Man, Zeus and Sensational Sheri where Sheri is climbing the cage and just keeps shouting, “Cage!” over and over again?
