CONFIRMED: Was The Cover Artwork Just Revealed for WWE WrestleMania 34 on DVD & Blu-Ray?

February 26, 2018 by Daniel Bee

Has the planned cover artwork for the WrestleMania 34 DVD already been revealed?

Yes and no.

Over the weekend the first official sighting of artwork for the release surfaced online – but this was not a “leak” as some are suggesting; this was an intentional upload to Best Buy’s website (link).

Reason being because on the road to WrestleMania 34 Best Buy have begun promoting a version that will be exclusive to them. WrestlingDVDNetwork.com has learned that Best Buy will be offering a WrestleMania 34 Blu-ray featuring the exclusive cover artwork you see below.

We can confirm that this artwork is legit and as of right now will appear on the store exclusive, however this will NOT be the main DVD and Blu-ray cover for this year’s WrestleMania as that will likely not finalize until the event concludes in April.

Note that the Blu-ray as a whole is not exclusive to Best Buy and will see a wide release in the United States, only the alternate artwork is. As things stand here are the three editions on the way:

  • WrestleMania 34 [DVD]
  • WrestleMania 34 [Blu-ray]
  • WrestleMania 34 [Blu-ray, Best Buy Exclusive Artwork]

Speaking of store exclusives, we have learned that another “alternate” version of the WM34 DVD is being prepped for a UK retail outlet with details still to be confirmed.

The past couple of years have also seen WrestleMania released in limited edition Steelbook Blu-ray packaging but unfortunately those editions were dropped in 2018.

Here’s the new artwork – once again the plan is to release this as a Best Buy exclusive:

WWE WrestleMania 34 Blu-ray Cover Artwork - Best Buy Exclusive

SYNOPSIS

WWE heads to New Orleans for its biggest show of the year, WrestleMania! Epic rivalries come to a head as WWE Superstars compete to add their names to the list of WrestleMania legends.

Featuring Ronda Rousey, John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Triple H, AJ Styles, Roman Reigns, Undertaker and many more!

WrestleMania 34 takes place on Sunday, 8th April 2018


In our last update we revealed the cover artwork for WWE’s new “Twist of Fate: The Best of the Hardy Boyz” DVD:

REVEALED: Cover Art for WWE’s 2018 “HARDY BOYZ: Twist of Fate” DVD – Reversible With Two Designs!

It turns out the special alternate artwork featuring the close-up Matt and Jeff Hardy ‘split’ design will also be an exclusive to Best Buy, so with the addition of WrestleMania 34 the retailer will be offering not one but two WWE DVD artwork variants in the month of May.

As mentioned, fans in the UK will be treated to both versions of the Hardy Boyz artwork by way of a reversible sleeve. This will feature the ‘split’ design, shown again below, as the front cover.

More indications that we won’t see seeing the “Shane McMahon’s Craziest Matches” DVD any time soon as HMV UK has switched the release date from June 11th, 2018 to January 1st, 2021!

It is our understanding that the site typically switches release dates to a distant time in this manner when the release status of said DVD is no longer known, and that appears to be the case here.

They make basically told us that the Undertaker will be at Wrestlemania so I guess that’s a spoiler alert

Love the ‘BEST BUY’ blu-ray cover of ‘WRESTLEMANIA’ and the ‘HARDY BOYS’ cover. BOTH look great. Can’t wait for the original d.v.d and blu-ray cover of ‘WRESTLEMANIA’ even though it will not be revealed until a couple of weeks after the event.

Isn’t this a little unwise from Best Buy’s perspective? What if one or more of these talents get injured before ‘Mania?

They mine as well just have Roman Reigns on the cover already holding up the universal title because everyone already knows he’s going to win it anyway.

Why WWE is recycling the main event from WM31 is beyond me. Not looking forward to it at all.

Wow, who would have thought Jinder Mahal would be on the cover of Wrestlemania.

RabidHeat
WDN Reader

Bit stupid considering he’s not likely to be in a marquee match.

Maybe Jinder is just a place holder and will be replaced with Undertaker. And the WWE just screwed up in the synopsis by putting Undertaker’s name in it.

the recent WrestleMania covers seem to be the best example of “the brand is (supposed to be) bigger than every worker”. I mean, remember when the Mania cover just featured the people that were actually main eventing?

Maybe it’s just because the main events tend to be the worst matches on the card now, lol.

No more Limited Edition Steel Book Blu-Ray for any foreseeable future of WrestleMania events to come within the next few years, so will it be in a good Digipak Set from the last 14 years

Why would they include Undertaker in the early synopsis when the angle with Cena hasn’t even been done on TV yet? WWE used to be really good with paying attention to little details like this back in the day.

Lol, that is an epic spoiler.

That is IF the still officially not confirmed match ends up happening at WM34

Not the point. Taker just being mentioned at all is a spoiler. In storyline he’s supposed to be retired.

Anan
WDN Reader
Anan

You’re saying that like you know he’s not retired. Like he’s “only retired in storyline.” You don’t know that. Neither do I. Hell maybe he himself isn’t sure. Maybe he isn’t retired for real. Then again maybe he is. All I know for sure is as of now his WM status and Cena’s WM34 match are not officially confirmed by them or by WWE.

LP1
WDN Reader

Actually I DO know that because he said so himself. Watch the Network documentary on Mania 33. After the match is over he says “It’s so surreal right now. After 30 years I’m very content with riding off into the sunset.”

Anan
WDN Reader
Anan

And then he stated “we’ll see what tomorrow brings” hinting a possible return at some point. The other thing is in recent years, after someone retired, they headline the following year’s HOF class. Edge retired in 2011, headlined the 2012 HOF. This year, Goldberg’s the headliner. Don’t you think it makes sense that if Taker really was retired he’d be going in this year as the headliner? He deserves to headline whatever year he goes in, no doubt about that. But he’s not even announced for this year yet and since Goldberg’s headlining I don’t think he’ll be in this… Read more »

That’s not always true about people retiring and immediately going in the HOF. Daniel Bryan retired over 2 years ago and still not in. It took 6 years for Austin to go in after he retired. Christian’s been retired for a few years, not in. I’m sure there’s plenty of others that didn’t go in the HOF right away either.

Anan
WDN Reader
Anan

No doubt about those valid points.

I’m speculating about Bryan didn’t get in yet bc he wants to wrestle. He’s still young enough to if cleared to wrestle. I firmly understand why WWE won’t – for health reasons. Austin’s induction in 09 made sense as that year, the HOF was in Texas. Perfect opportunity to induct a retired wrestler in their own hometown. See no other reason why they waited so long to induct him. Just my 2 cents.

Brandon Vendetta

Yeah but that match is most likely going to happen. I’ve been hearing rumors about Taker vs Cena since last WrestleMania so since the rumors about Lesnar vs Reigns wound up being true I’m pretty sure that the match with Taker vs Cena will happen.

Anan
WDN Reader
Anan

Never said it wouldn’t. Just said it wasn’t confirmed. According to Cena though this could be all storyline/buildup stuff that he asked for a match w/Taker. Didn’t get it. Not happening. Impossible. He also told Miz last year that if he had the power every1 thinks he has Taker vs Cena instead of Taker vs Reigns would’ve happened at WM33.

Now Rey’s reportedly finalizing a deal with WWE that’ll see him wrestle at WM34. His rumored opponent, John Cena. Again as of now, this is just a rumor/report.

Anan
WDN Reader
Anan

For marketing purposes, to sell the event & get as many viewers as possible bc knowledge is power & they know Cena’s a top company draw as is Taker. No one knows Taker’s WM status except maybe WWE. Same probably for Cena. Anyone outside WWE doesn’t know if Taker vs Cena will happen. Heavily rumored and may end up happening yes but who’s to say a swerve won’t happen and Cena ends up facing someone else instead? In terms of star power and all that, Taker and Cena are the biggest opponents left for each other and WM34 is probably… Read more »

I seriously don’t think ‘Taker could hang with Styles at this stage of his career. Working with Styles would really show ‘Taker’s age and highlight his weaknesses. Cena and ‘Taker would mesh better, I think. They could work an old-school match with less high-spots that would help ‘Taker look more credible. I just wouldn’t be able to believe that ‘Taker could beat Styles. I also think the characters and wrestling arsenal of Styles and Taker are just too different and it would come off awkward; I felt that way when ‘Taker wrestled Rey at Royal Rumble 2010 – it was… Read more »

So u rather see Hogan vs Flair? Yep. Hogan wants that match or so he recently said. If anyone needs to stop, he’s it. He wasn’t a great in ring wrestler. IMHO neither was Flair who I’ve remembered for his longevity. But unlike Taker who’s changed and evolved over the yrs Flair’s been the same robe wearin chop & Figure 4, “Wooo!!!” yellin guy for most of or his entire career. He wrestled wayyyyyyyyy beyond his prime and I’m hoping his health regaining doesn’t lead him back into an eventual in ring return. If Flair can wrestle well into whatever… Read more »

Anan, Taker just had serious knee surgery after Mania 33 last year. He’s 53 years old. His classic Mania matches with Shawn Michaels were almost a decade ago. His last great Mania match was with Punk 5 years ago. He’s not going to all of a sudden be a miracle worker at this stage of his career. There’s a reason they did that retirement angle at the end of last year’s Mania and that’s because in his mind he was done. If you watch the documentary on the Network about Mania 33, he even says so himself. Coming back for… Read more »

When did it say I expected Taker from 10 years ago to show up? He’s a company loyalist! Do u really think a company man won’t come back if he can if called upon? If Vince calls him and Taker feels/believes he can put in a respectable performance he’ll be back. That’s what loyalists do. If you needed proof, WM33 is it. 52 years old, bad hip that’s in very seriously dire need of replacement, he worked and gave his very best. Was it his greatest performance? No. But I respect the man for his effort when he could’ve said… Read more »

“When did it say I expected Taker from 10 years ago to show up?” Right here… “As for Taker can’t hang with Styles, u keep thinking what u want but don’t be shocked if/when Taker proves you dead wrong bc he’s been proving people dead wrong pretty much his entire career.” To be able to hang with today’s AJ Styles and work AJ’s kind of match, it would definitely have to be the Taker from a decade ago. Taker just going out there and having an OK match, like he has the last few years, is not gonna fly when… Read more »

imo to a degree that Taker vs. Styles match (legendary deadman against young guy that can go) has been done already, in 2013 with his match with CM Punk.

(of course that’s also hindsight speaking. but in retrospect this should have really been his swan song, since all of Taker’s Mania matches since then have been somewhat disappointing)

Anan
WDN Reader

Well in that logic, Taker vs Styles has been done many times throughout Taker’s career then bc he’s faced many up & comers. Taker vs Punk was imo the match of the night at wm29 but Punk is no AJ Styles. Nowhere near him imho. Especially not now. That’s not a knock on Punk. I’m basically saying he’s not the high flyer Styles has been known for being throughout his career. Taker’s hung with opponents younger than him countless times. Were they high flyers like Styles? No they were not. Punk, Kennedy, Orton, Cena (2003 and 2004), Angle, Bray Wyatt.… Read more »
