We recently noted that a Roadblock 2018 pay-per-view event could be happening in January before the Royal Rumble with a DVD release of it following in February. Listings for such a DVD appeared on retail sites in both Canada and the United Kingdom, such as here and here.
It would appear that was WWE’s plan at one point but has since been scrapped. We can confirm that the DVD has been removed from the release schedule and those pre-order listings will soon follow.
