What does WWE do with the aspect ratio on their DVDs these days? Are they all 16:9 with 4:3 content shown with either black bars or images on the sides, like they have on their television broadcasts? Or are they still sticking with 4:3 all the way?

I think the last DVD I purchased was a year ago about the rise and fall of WCW, but that was in full screen. I have the last 3 WM Blu-rays and they are widescreen, and want to make sure the same treatment is given to the DVDs.

Would kindly appreciate if anyone can answer this for me, thanks.

They have the bars on the sides of the video. Read it on a review yesterday.

Yeah, taking a break from watching it as I write this. It's good that they finally started releasing documentaries in a widescreen format, but from what I've seen so far they haven't handled the 4:3 content very well. It's either cropped to fit a 1.78:1 ratio or they have blue bars on the sides. Just stick with the black bars for 4:3 content; it's less distracting.

I agree, why do the people who release this stuff think it has to fill up the whole screen. It just makes it look stupid and wastes video bitrate that could be used to make the picture look better.
