It appears that Scott Hall has lost the trust of WWE that he worked so hard and so long to regain. Management had planned on doing a DVD for the entire Kliq, and they were even going to do a reunion show. However, now that Hall has caused some trouble at an independent wrestling show, the front office does not feel that it would be a good move to have him around. They are simply going to sell the documentary and nothing more.

It looks like WWE has finally decided to sign the other half of Harlem Heat. However, do not expect Stevie Ray to be donning the wrestling gear anytime soon.

The belief is that this might lead to a DVD or other merchandise for the former world tag team champions.

Generally, WWE likes to keep skeletons in the closet because they do not want others using that as ammunition against the company and their often times damaged reputation. That is why it comes as a bit of a surprise that management is having Randy Orton talk about his past drug addition on an upcoming DVD. There were rumors that were floating around for years about Orton, and his loyal fans denied that there were any drug issues.

When WWE creates a DVD for a performer, they generally allow them some creative input. With Jerry Lawler, he is receiving a whole lot of input. The longtime commentator is being allowed to pick and choose which matches that he wants on the feature. Management is even paying him for the rights to use the footage, since Lawler owns most of the content from the Memphis territory. This is definitely a special case scenario.

When the news initially surfaced that Owen Hart was going to be getting his very first DVD special, the belief was that his widow signed off on it. Apparently, that was wrong.

It looks like we are one step closer to seeing Owen Hart in the WWE Hall of Fame. The company has announced that they are working on a DVD that will document his career and life.

Since the company now has him under contract, the smart move would be to utilize Sting as much as possible to get a return on the investment that WWE spent on him. That is a big reason why a DVD is being discussed at the moment. The WCW legend is expected to be heavily involved with the project, and he is reportedly interested in having a lot of say in how it is presented. Management already has a good amount of footage since they own the library.

Since WWE is promoting a DVD on Booker T that focuses on how he turned his life around, there are rumors floating around that the company might do one for Sean Waltman. As of right now, that biography does not appear to be a priority. He has been involve in plenty of memorable moments, so there would be more than enough footage. However, Waltman did go through some really dark times that should not be in the spotlight.
