Default Future Wrestling Blu-Ray Discs

Hey fellow blu-ers.... I recently purchased WrestleMania 24 on blu-ray. My god did it look impressive. I was wondering if anyone knew why there have not been any other wrestling events released in high definition? I know all WWE events are in Hi-Def now and TNA wrestling just made the upgrade. Also does anyone know if older WWE and TNA events will eventually find a blu-ray release?

Thanks so much

I think it was just to see how much it would sell, if it didn't sell well then they probably wont release any more.

There is a special edition of the latest WWE game for PS3 than includes a blu-ray with 2 hours of footage in HD.

wrestling typically takes a long time to hit next generation formats. they got into the dvd business in late 00 when dvd's were out almost 3-4 yrs by then plus with the steep decline in viewership and ppv buy's there probably isnt much incentive too go to a new format.

i think the WM24 sales were poorer than they thought it would be. i would say if we see another, it will be a Wrestlemania event. my fingers are crossed, as i did enjoy it, but there were a few flaws in it they'd have to improve on their next go round: hi res audio and 1080p picture being the most important.

Nope it's true. I've seen it reported on a few wrestling websites. And Amazon is even showing the BD cover art although the pre order isn't available yet. They reformed for one night only back in May and shot the show for a BD and DVD.
