After all of the waiting, the WWE Network has finally added the WWE Home Video Classics section to the Vault category! You can now watch 38 of Coliseum Video’s best releases anytime you want. Here are the videos in a chronological hyperlinked list that you can click on (if on a PC) to go straight to the video in question:
- Home Video Classics
There are a couple of notes as far as edits are concerned. The biggest involves World Tour ’92, which appear to be a completely different version compared to that released in the United States. Courtesy of Reddit user CJTus, the following changes have been made:
These matches are gone.
- Texas Tornado vs. The Mountie
- Davey Boy Smith vs. Earthquake
- British Bulldog vs. IRS
- Bret Hart vs. Rick Martel
These matches air instead.
- High Energy vs. Beverly Brothers
- British Bulldog vs. Repo Man
- British Bulldog vs. Warlord (from WM 7)
- Sgt. Slaughter vs. Rick Martel
- Tito Santana vs. Kato
The difference is actually fairly easy to explain. WWE has uploaded a version that was exclusive to the UK, Europe and often Canada (a practice quite common in those regions due to them being growing markets for the then-WWF). While it may not be the World Tour ’92 that people were expecting, it does have the bonus of being rarer.
Secondly, a Terry Funk match has reportedly been removed from Villans of the Squared Circle. In truth, it was more of an angle than a match as it centered around Funk attacking ring announcer Mel Phillips for wearing Terry’s cowboy hat. Mel Phillips is now better known for having committed sexual assault on minors, so it’s most likely a kneejerk edit. All is not lost though, as the attack is strangely (currently) featured in full on another release in the above list, Most Embarrassing Moments. Whether one of these is an error will likely come to light soon.
If any other major differences are spotted, we’ll be sure to let you know.
