As the WWE Network increases in popularity and, regrettably, extending major events to four hours in length (starting with June’s Money in the Bank), we’ve seen a downtrend in terms of physical media. WWE Blu-ray production is such a low priority that, at least in the U.S., looks like it will be phased out entirely. Most die-hard collectors don’t like the idea of having HD quality material not being released on Blu-ray media and have decided to boycott WWE DVD releases.
All this notwithstanding, a new “Fan Council” survey went out to select members of the WWE Universe to get their feedback to various questions, including:
How many DVDs and Blu-rays (WWE or non-WWE) has the respondent has purchased in the past 2 years?*
Has the WWE Network had an effect on what they purchase on home video?
Plus, the surveys gauges interest in this list of 30 different titles.
For a complete synopsis of each title, check out PWInsider.

*This answer is to be highly skewed to more WWE DVDs purchased than Blu-rays on account of titles produced for both formats. (I’ve always advocated to have WWE Blu-rays either be WWE website exclusive or produced like Warner Bros. does with its Warner Archive releases.)
Of the titles listed, the ones I’m personally interested are The Miz: A-List Superstar; The Best of “Ravishing” Rick Rude; The Best of Andre the Giant; SmackDown 20th Anniversary; The Best of WWE Superstars; and anything related to NXT.
