In another head-scratching development, and one that’s now tough to ignore, not only has the WWE Day 1 2022 DVD been given a US release date, it’s now got official cover artwork and a trailer!
The Warner Bros.-branded box artwork was first spotted at the end of this trailer, but as of today full resolution versions of this artwork (front and back) have been uploaded to an internal schedule we access, and should soon follow to US and Canadian retail sites where Day 1 is already listed for release on February 15th.
Essentially, everything that would usually happen prior to a WWE DVD hitting the domestic market is proceeding as normal.
There has been no official word of a turnaround on the December announcement; everything is still hush-hush, but the presence of this DVD in the internal schedule, now with all the US artwork assets, feels like a strong signal it could actually see the light of day.
Royal Rumble 2022 is following just the same, with a Home Video release date listed as March 8th.
Nonetheless, we are not going to confirm the go-ahead of these titles yet, since we haven’t received any real verbal update since their cancellation.
All that’s left to do, if you’re in North America, is to pre-order and hope for the best. If we get official word in the run-up to the release of Day 1 we will of course update everyone.
No word on any change in the Australian market; Madman.com.au‘s upcoming release schedule still follows as we reported – Crown Jewel is coming in February and Survivor Series (the DVD we were informed would be the final title in both North America and Australia) is coming in March.
In the UK, it’s 100% confirmed WWE’s Day 1 Pay-Per-View will make it to DVD on February 21st. Royal Rumble will be produced on DVD and Blu-ray and hit the region on March 21st.
Fremantle’s box art for Day 1 will look as below — the two latest cover shots we now have show that Becky Lynch and Liv Morgan will be featured on the spine of the DVD.
The WWE Day 1 DVD (whether the UK version or the US, if it happens) will be a single-disc offering that features the full PPV event and the Kickoff Show tag match as an extra.
