Hhh Dvd, Hbk, Dreamer & Candice News!

Recommended Posts

Candice Michelle continues to receive press attention for her part in the GoDaddy.com commercial which aired during the Super Bowl. One report describes her as a "bustilicious former soft-core porn actress and WWE personality." The reference to porn comes after it emerged that Candice appeared in a 2002 adult movie called Hotel Erotica. It's being widely reported that the FCC received a total of 8 complaints after the commercial aired while they received over 500,000 the previous year following Janet Jackson's infamous pop put.

 

The WWE is currently toying with the idea of releasing a 2 or 3 disc Triple H DVD in late 2005.

 

Shawn Michaels was at last night's Arkansas Rim Rockers Basketball game. He was signing autographs for five dollars which went to the Arkansas Food Bank. The line was long, it was at least about 150-200 people in line to see HBK and he was very nice in person and signed anything in front of him. It was great to see HBK in person and he told me he was happy to be there but was tired from the trip from Japan.

 

Tommy Dreamer is scheduled to appear at the 2/26 New York Wrestling Connection event at the Community Center in Deer Park, Long Island.

2 or 3 discs for HHH? Where does the WWE get off acting like HHH deserves a 3 disc DVD set. He's not a major star and never will be.

He's the Game, that's why.

 

And there will be no matches on them that he looses.

 

I'm not buying it. I'd rather get a Funaki 3-disk set.

They'll promote that disc to the moon while the RVD disc set hasn't gotten any mention.

and i bet the rvd disk will sell as many

I hope you are right, but I would be surprised if they want to see the RVD dvd do poorly so they have an excuse to why he is buried and why they keep burying him.

Two years ago, they had a Triple H - The Game DVD come out and another Best Buy exclusive Triple H DVD that came out a month or two later. And none of those had any WWF censoring.

 

I don't really know how the WWE would make a 3-disk HHH DVD when all of his best matches will have the WWF-logo censor planted throughout. No one wants to see that.

Yeah, I know those censors are an annoyance, but it's just something that you have to overlook, I guess. As long as the matches are good, I'm happy. Also, I'm not exactly a Triple H mark or anything, but yeah, he deserves a dvd set. He's had some excellent matches over the years, and he's been one of the most influential characters within all of the WWF/E's programming for years now. Whether that was a deserved position or not is irrelevant. He's important to the company, and he has a sizable fan base. The set will probably have a solid sales figure and make a strong profit for the 'E. I can't see anything wrong with the situation. God forbid you admit that someone you don't like is popular.

 

And by the way, as for the RVD disc...To assume a company is purposely acting to the detriment of its own product, and by extension, the money it placed into creating and promoting said product, is foolish. They're a publicly traded organization, and they don't just make a dvd set with the hopes of it selling poorly just to prove a point. It's like saying Coca-Cola set up New Coke to fail, just so people would buy more Classic Coke when it returned to the market. In fact, they don't even need to justify their actions regarding any particular wrestler at all, especially not by such elaborate means. They could prove a point by sending Van Dam to OVW or making him job to the Brooklyn Brawler on PPV.

With the way WWE acts when it comes to certain wrestlers anything is possible. When it comes to WWE no assumption is foolish. Don't kid yourself they would have Van Dam job to the Brooklyn Brawler on PPV if they got the chance to do it.

I myself have been disappointed by WWE's lack of advertisement for the RVD DVD (which is spectacular compilation by the way). But in all honesty to WWE, they only created it after the sales of the Rise & Fall of ECW DVD were so fantastic. On a business side, maybe they just didn't forecast a budget for advertisement of this DVD. They took 10 months to release the ECW DVD, which ensured an adequate budget, but only two months for the RVD DVD. Who knows?

 

It could also be something to do with the brands. When the Ric Flair Ultimate Collection DVD came out, they domantly advertised it on RAW, but not SmackDown. We could be seeing the same here. And plus, with RVD out, how exactly can WWE advertise a DVD where the main character of the feature is absent in rehab.

Yeah, they could job him to the Brawler. Maybe they even would if he upset the right people. But what I'm talking about is simple economics. You do not spend the money to make a dvd centered around a wrestler just in the hopes that it will sell poorly, especially not when you have to come up with an excuse for your stockholders about the poor sales of said dvd. Why compile all that footage, record commentary tracks, and manufacture all those dvds if they don't want anyone to buy them? They've got RVD doing exactly what they want him doing - making money for them through merchandising and ticket sales. And they know he remains popular enough to help make money for them regardless of his position on the card. I'm not saying they've never mishandled him, but I tend to think that any mistakes they've made with him have not been on purpose. They wouldn't do something to blatantly ruin the career of someone who makes money for them if they expected him to remain in the company long-term.

With WWE one can never be sure anymore. And Vince isn't above wasting money anyway [WBF,XFL, RAW Diva search anyone?] As for upsetting the wrong people he upset HHH and Steph by being able to wrestle circles aroud him and Vince for being a star in another league.

 

With the way Stephanie and Kevin Dunn hate ECW I am amazed they did as good of a job as they did on the ECW disc.

 

 

I wonder how RVD discs have been sold in spite of WWE not putting any interest into advertising it.
