This is how WWE DVD and Blu-ray releases are shaping up so far for 2014:
TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2013 – Jan 14
The Best of Raw & Smackdown 2013 – Jan 28
Shawn Michaels: Mr. WrestleMania – Feb 11
Royal Rumble 2014 – Feb 25
The official synopsis for the Royal Rumble 2014 DVD is shown below. We can confirm a Blu-ray edition of the PPV event is also planned worldwide.
One of the most hallowed traditions in sports entertainment, the Royal Rumble is back for its 27th edition! WWE kicks off the road to its historic 30th WrestleMania with its annual 30-man, over the top rope battle royal, where one Superstar will punch his ticket to New Orleans for a championship match at the Show of Shows.
Last year, John Cena emerged from the pack to earn a second chance at a showdown with The Rock. This year, which Superstar will add his name to the illustrious list of Royal Rumble winners along side such greats as Cena, Hogan, Stone Cold and Triple H?

Following on from the in-depth preview of The History of WWE documentary posted to the site yesterday, we can confirm that the number of personalities interviewed is around 60! The Undertaker is one of them, following his appearance in the Triple H documentary.
As mentioned, the Andre the Giant vs. Hulk Hogan WrestleMania 3 match featured on the set is listed as “Arena Camera – No Commentary”. It’s a new look at the match from the arena hard camera only, as shown in the screenshot below.
The WrestleMania 18 Hulk Hogan vs. The Rock match is one of the bonuses too. This marks the first time since WWE reportedly settled with the World Wildlife Fund that they have released the match “unblurred” without censoring WWF references.
