The three best selling WWE DVDs in 2007 are WrestleMania 23 (337,000 units shipped), New and Improved DX (209,000 units shipped) and the Ladder Match History DVD (178,000 units shipped). The DVD on wrestling families didn’t make the cut.

Unforgiven 2007 featuring Cena vs. Orton did 210,000 buys worldwide — 134,000 of which that were domestic. The numbers are way down from last year’s figures, which were 307,000 worldwide buys and 187,000 domestic. Although, Unforgiven’s numbers seems to be in line with what recent B-PPV shows have been getting as of late.

Sky Sports recently conducted an interview with Ric Flair. Flair said he expects to be back on television within the next few weeks. Regarding a possible induction into the WWE Hall of Fame next year, Flair said, “I’ve heard talk of it but nothing has been confirmed. But if the WWE think it is the right time I would certainly be very obliged and proud to be in that position. My problem is I take it too serious. And when it happens it will be a very real moment for me. It will be something I will cherish and my family will cherish forever.”
