As of latest word, the WWE DVD release celebrating the 20th anniversary of Monday Night Raw this year is going ahead. This has been slated to be a “box set” release and is speculated to be more than the norm 3-DVD/2-BD releases seen throughout the year. There are currently no further details on how many discs will comprise the set.
What we do know, as of now, is that it’s on the way for December 2013 in both DVD and Blu-ray formats with the name “WWE: Raw 20th Anniversary Collection“.
We have also heard that for the SummerSlam DVD release this year, along with the standard DVD and the Blu-ray there may be a 2 disc DVD version (possibly store exclusive) which contains the extras usually only present on the Blu-ray. That being selected matches and segments from the Raw and Smackdown episodes leading into the PPV.
For those wondering, we can confirm that this year’s Survivor Series event will make it to Blu-ray format. Survivor Series has been released on Blu-ray only twice to date in the US.
A summer sale is running this weekend only at here at WWEShop.com.
Selected items are with up to 60% off. The DVD deals found in there include the SummerSlam 2009, 2010 and 2011 DVDs for $4.99 each, SummerSlam 2012 on DVD for $9.99 or on Blu-ray for $11.99, and volumes of the SummerSlam Anthology set for $29.99 each.
Yesterday the full content of “Straight to the Top: The Money in the Bank Ladder Match Anthology” was revealed, ahead of its release in October.
We can confirm that the total runtime for the DVD is approximately 6 hours and 30 minutes. The Blu-ray edition has almost 2 hours of extra footage which are the bonus cash-in segments. That takes the total runtime of the Blu-ray to approximately 8 hours and 29 minutes.
On the TNA DVD front, ShopTNA.com has several newly added DVD for the US market including One Night Only: X-Travaganza, Joker’s Wild, Genesis 2013, and Lockdown 2013.
The Joker’s Wild DVD is released to the UK next week over at TNADVD.co.uk.

A few WDN readers have let us know that their orders for the Money in the Bank 2013 Blu-ray with Walmart have shipped out, which looks to confirm the product was not listed on their website in error. It’s also now up on BestBuy.com so the status of ‘store exclusivity’ is unknown right now. Money in the Bank 2013 is officially released this Tuesday.
