BREAKING: First Titles for 2018 WWE DVD & Blu-Ray Schedule – ‘RAW 25’, AJ STYLES, THE SHIELD, MORE!

September 20, 2017 by Daniel Bee

REVEALED: First Plans for 2018 WWE DVDs & Blu-rays!

We told you that the first plans for WWE DVDs in 2018 were expected to be revealed imminently and less than a week later it’s time to take a look at exactly that!

The premium section of PWInsider.com has super-kicked that into action as today they let loose what WWE has slated for their Home Video schedule next year – a “Phenomenal” (no, delightful!) list of titles that showcase the present and give a nod to the past, while introducing some first-time-evers, celebrating anniversaries, and unearthing more never-before-seen unreleased footage.

Your first list of DVDs and Blu-rays that reportedly made the cut for 2018 follows immediately below. Given the time frame, please consider some of the projects to be tentative at this time. It should also be noted that the names of certain DVDs could well change prior to their release.

 
“The Best of RAW & SmackDown Live 2017”

— Expected, but the series is now confirmed to be back on the schedule next year.

 
“The Best of NXT 2017”

— NXT will join the year’s retrospective titles for the first time, following some recent speculation that WWE wanted to get NXT TakeOver specials on Home Video.

WWE 2018 Home Video Schedule - RAW 25th Anniversary DVD

“RAW 25th Anniversary”

— WWE will mark the 25th anniversary of RAW the best way we can think of, and that’s with a DVD! Could we have another 12-disc box set like we saw for the 20th anniversary?

 
“Best Pay-Per-View Matches 2017”

— Another staple series will return, expected to be released worldwide.

 
“The Shield”

— Does what would be the second Shield DVD mean there’s a reunion in the works soon?

WWE 2018 Home Video Schedule - The Shield DVD
WWE 2018 Home Video Schedule - 'Phenomenal AJ Styles' DVD

“The Phenomenal AJ Styles”

Rumored since early 2017, seemingly then confirmed this summer, the AJ DVD now looks to be a lock! Will he get the documentary treatment or a straight up match comp?

 
“Shawn Michaels: Unreleased”

— More unreleased content is on the way for DVD collectors and this one’s all about HBK!
 

And there’s more! PWInsider Elite has named additional titles that WWE currently has penciled into their 2018 schedule. We’ll confirm what those are here on WDN in just a couple of days, reporting back when we’ve done some digging on which titles are definitely coming – and when.

They should rerelease some of the old HBK dvds, also Stone Cold, The Rock etc. because i‘m not buying anything with the WWF Logo blurred!

I loved wwe unreleased set. I watched it in about two days. I hope we get part 2. I hope Shawns jobber days from mid south will be on there

Another Shawn Michaels video set?! What for?! I have a whole list of video sets that I would like to see released. I’m not going to say what they are, I did that several times already and the WWE company isn’t listening. They don’t want to release video sets that the audience/WWE Universe wants to see, the WWE only puts out sets they THINK people want to see. If they put out another Shawn Michaels video set, unreleased or not, I’m not picking it up. I want to see sets out on other superstars/moments/programs. The WWE unreleased 1986-1995 didn’t have… Read more »

They didn’t remove the commentary , there never was any when they would film matches for later use they would record commentary later so if they never used them they didn’t put in commentary

Shawn Michaels Unreleased might include his 1987 WWF tryout teaming with Jannetty against Jose Estrada & Jimmy Jack Funk.

If they go back to the way they did the Hulk Hogan Unreleased that would be great , unreleased doesn’t have to be unseen

Brandon vendetta

Agreed. The Hogan unreleased collectors series DVD was great. Unreleased doest have to be”unseen” couldn’t agree more. And it had commentary too. I’m all for more unreleased sets like that one but unfortunately I don’t think there will be any.

Some of the hogan unreleased matches were already on wwe classics on demand or 24/7, whatever it was called so they weren’t exactly “unreleased”.

whut
Guest

but they were “unreleased” in the sense that they hadn’t been released on dvd before.

(and if you only count in the WWF footage of the first two discs, afaik the majority of it was never released on vhs as well)

Rich
Guest

Exactly , you can do raw matches and house show matches that have never been on dvd before and this way most matches would have commentary, and the few that don’t can have Shawn himself with maybe Jim Ross

Great news about the Shawn Michaels set. On the basis all of his PPV matches have been released, I’d like to see many of the following included: Saturday Night’s Main Event – March 11, 1989 vs. The Brain Busters Saturday Night’s Main Event – July 28, 1990 vs. Demolition Raw – May 22, 1995 vs. King Kong Bundy Raw – July 17, 1995 vs. IRS Superstars – August 5, 1995 vs. Skip Raw – August 14, 1995 vs. Jerry Lawler Superstars – April 27, 1996 vs. The 1-2-3 Kid Raw – July 1, 1996 vs. Marty Jannetty Raw – November… Read more »

Mr. Perfect against Shawn Michaels from the buildup show to WrestleMania VII would be great.

(generally speaking I would prefer more stuff that can’t be easily seen on the Network, especially considering that I assume this will be a dvd-only release)

Mark Markson

Looking good. I’d like if they went back, and did 4 discs for the best of Raw and Smackdown. And since it is HD footage, please give us a blu-ray. Best of NXT sounds good. Here I am also hoping for a blu-ray. I can only imagine this means the awesome match between Asuka vs Nikki Cross from July will be included. Releasing NXT Takeover shows sounds great. Why not add an extra disc for Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, Summerslam and Survivor Series, and release them with these shows in the future? Or, do a box at the end of the… Read more »

they are very likely not doing the “best ppv matches” on bluray (they haven’t in past years, why would they do so this year?).

Mark Markson
Guest
Mark Markson

You are probably right. Still keeping my fingers crossed. 🙂 I just feels it makes some sense to do a blu-ray of that release, since it is the only way to own these matches in 1080p. But it all comes down to if WWE believe a blu-ray will sell.

another Shawn Michaels dvd? I’d rather he not get a DVD set for another 10 years. He’s already had a dozen sets released already.

another Shield dvd? Way too soon. I’d rather see WWE Raw: The Best of 1995 & 1996 instead.

josh
Guest

I feel the same way, another shawn michaels set?! I could go the rest of my life without seeing another michaels set.

Mark Markson

If the Michaels set was full of repeats, I’d agree with you. But unreleased content is always fun.

Jacob Tully
Guest

Not if the guy has had 50 other dvd sets already.

Phil
Guest

I disagree Jacob. He’s such an amazing performer with a massive fanbase, so releasing lots of hidden gems is a fantastic idea. The DVD will be very well received, I think.

josh
Guest

Well I disagree with you. I don’t think he has a massive fan base, I certainly am not one of them.

Indyfan

Damn right it will. Unreleased ( not necessarily unseen) sets are the best bang for your buck.

I’d take any unreleased set over a set with repeats. I hope we get some Rockers vs Rougeau matches on this.

RabidHeat
Guest

Well if it’s another 12 disc Raw box set we won’t get it in the UK I guess, since we’re not allowed anything that big! 🙁

I’m very surprised they are doing the Raw DVD. It will only be good if it’s an episode compilation like the last one and if it’s not totally loaded with repeats. Lord knows I have enough repeats of Raw matches. AJ Styles DVD is to soon but i get why they are doing it. Shawn Michaels Unreleased I don’t know because in the last few years the title Unreleased= No commentary. I would bet that this set will probably be the same. And The Shield reunion is obviously going to happen so thanks WWE for spoiling it.

josh

I would like to see a Monday night raw anthology, every episode of raw ever released and a Monday nitro anthology, every nitro episode ever released. Oops, there I go again requesting what I want to see released when WWE isn’t going to listen to what the universe wants to see.

LP1
Guest
LP1

Lol You can’t be serious. Every episode of Raw ever. That’s over 1,200 episodes. We’re talking approximately 2,000 hours when you eliminate commercial time. If they fit 3 hours per disc, that’s 667 discs. Good luck with that.

Indyfan
Guest

No way should they release raw anthology sets. Just get the network. I’m a wrestling fan and would skip that shit.

The best of Raw and SmackDown will be one I will buy. The second women’s MITB match and the Kevin Owens US title matches will probably be on it. NXT sounds good and probably AJ Styles. Like the SHIELD but it was covered adequately on the other release. No interest in Raw 25. Hopefully a Rick Rude or Goldust/Dustin Rhodes (I know it won’t happen) release are in the cards.
