WWE’s “Fight Owens Fight: The Kevin Owens Story” DVD Set Is Already A Huge Success…

We all knew it would be a matter of time before WWE produced and released a DVD/Blu-ray set about Kevin Owens, and comes to little-to-no surprise that since its release this past Tuesday (because Owens IS Mr. USA; by way of Canada, anyway) that its been selling out EVERYWHERE.

The “Fight Owens Fight: The Kevin Owens Story” DVD/Blu-ray set features the entire Owens documentary (with the work of the great WWE editing and video department), 13 of Owens’ WWE career highlight matches (including his debut match in NXT to his match against Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 33 this past April. Plus, because Blu-rays are Blu-rays, this version has four extra matches. This set definitely sounds like a great deal, huh?

According to PWInsider, the Owens DVD and Blu-Ray collections have been sold out EVEN for people who PRE-ORDERED it; some people who pre-ordered have received notifications stating that Amazon is out of stock and their order has been backordered for over a couple of weeks. As we speak (er, read and type), the Amazon page for the DVD still says “temporarily out of stock.”  Even physical stores (i.e., Best Buy locations in New York, based on PWI’s own research) were having trouble keeping the set in stock.

So, basically, best of luck to anyone trying to find a copy…

[Thanks PWInsider]

A New Use for VHS Tapes…Coffee Tables!!!

With the rise in digital media and the popularity of tangible video media through DVD and Blu-ray (and even HD-DVD for the stubborn), the VHS just cannot compete with the aforementioned digital media in terms of picture quality or audio fidelity.  However, the VHS  has a great sense of nostalgia; recording you favorite TV shows and movies for the first time, watching home movies, and the memories entangled with that feel, magic, and soul that good old analog-technology can provide.
