Amazon.com recently sent out an e-mail to their customers informing them to pre-order a Randy Savage DVD from WWE. However, Vince McMahon actually cancelled the project after he found about it late last year and Amazon.com apparently weren't informed. Plans for the DVD were made without McMahon's approval as he quickly put the kibosh on it. Amazon.com still has a product page for the nixed DVD, which you can see at Amazon.com. It was tapped to be a nine-hour three-disc DVD set entitled Randy Savage: Macho Madness scheduled for release on November 18, 2008. In its place, WWE decided to release another DVD set on Eddie Guerrero, which is scheduled to be released on November 11.
Shane McMahon was in Mexico last week and had meetings with the Televisa Network. Televisa is the leading television network in the country and broadcasts both CMLL and AAA.
