I wasn't sure where to put this thread,but I recently bought my first WWE DVDs in about five years.The DVDs I bought were The best of WCW Nitro and ECW Unrealesed,while the DVDs are fine when Styles and DDP are talking,what is the deal with the side bars during the matches? Can I get rid of them?

The bars are there because the matches / segments were filmed in a 4:3 ratio (i.e. not in widescreen), so for a modern release, the images won't stretch to the edge of the screen, meaning unsightly black bars down the side or a distracting graphic have to be added to compensate.

I think it has something to do with WWE going HD. The DVD's and material before then would fit your screen, now you've got a mixture of recent footage and footage pre-HD. So by not losing the quality by stretching the pre-HD footage, they put bars down the side just like DC said.
