As you may have been following recently, the listings for the upcoming Triple H WWE DVD and Blu-ray were removed from Amazon. This occurrence alone isn’t all that unusual and has happened in the past, with the DVD in question being added back shortly after.
However, the entries for the release have now been removed from an official WWE Home Video schedule that we have access to here at WWEDVDNews, which has not happened before since we’ve been running this site (aside from cancelled pay-per-view events on Blu-ray format) so something is definitely going on.
This is rather strange since when new titles appear on our schedule for the next three months, it means those DVDs are fully confirmed and planning or production is already under way. Therefore this looks to be an abrupt change, with a reason behind it.
As we revealed here on the site the sets had been assigned catalog and UPC numbers, a synopsis and confirmed release date of March 13th, 2012, but these have been removed.
You may remember a Triple H DVD was on WWE’s tentative full year schedule last year but later removed and postpoined until this year. The difference between then and now is that last year it wasn’t confirmed nor assigned a release date.
We think this new change means the Triple H feature is either now postponed again to later this year or it’s been outright cancelled at the last minute.
As it stands right now the schedule for the US looks as shown below.
Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2011 [DVD] – January 17
Raw & Smackdown: The Best of 2011 [DVD/Blu-ray] – January 31
The Epic Adventure of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson [DVD/Blu-ray] – February 21
Royal Rumble 2012 [DVD/Blu-ray] – February 28
Elimination Chamber 2012 [DVD] – March 20
