WWE SummerSlam 2018 DVD - Cover Artwork & Extras List


You’re invited to The Biggest Party of the Summer…

For over two years, Roman Reigns made it his mission to vanquish Brock Lesnar and take his Universal Championship. Now in his last chance, The Big Dog battles The Beast Incarnate in the main event of SummerSlam.

For the first time ever, “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey challenges Alexa Bliss for the RAW Women’s Championship. WWE Champion AJ Styles defends the richest prize in sports entertainment against Samoa Joe. And the eight-year-long rivalry between Daniel Bryan and The Miz comes to a head. Plus, more!

The action heats up at SummerSlam.

You can own the SummerSlam 2018 Pay-Per-View on Home Video when WWE officially releases the DVD to the United States this time next month ($18.96; Amazon.com) followed up by the European release in October (£19.99; Amazon.co.uk) – also available on Blu-ray.

This year’s SummerSlam DVD will be formatted as a 2-disc set in order to hold the complete 4-hour event and extras on top which we can now confirm will be all of the Kickoff Show matches and a selection of moments from recent RAW and SmackDown episodes, including one that aired this week!

The Blu-ray edition (an exclusive to the UK and Germany) will be 1-disc with the same content.

SummerSlam would once again heat up the Barclays Center with a whopping 13 matches; 9 of which were contested for a Championship! In those Championship matches we would see Roman Reigns slay “The Beast” Brock Lesnar for the Universal title, Seth Rollins burn down Dolph Ziggler to capture the Intercontinental title, Ronda Rousey snap Alexa Bliss for the RAW Women’s title, and Charlotte Flair muscle in on a triple threat to take home the SmackDown Women’s title.

WrestlingDVDNetwork.com has just received the finalized content listing for the new WWE DVD and its special features, along with the front and back cover artwork too – so let’s take a look!

    Just got my copy in the mail today. It should be noted that the kickoff matches appear on disc one and the special features appear on disc two.

  2. Robert James Emons says:

    Anybody know if that super showdown ppv will be released on DVD?

    • LP1 says:

      I don’t see why it won’t. Every PPV this year has gotten a release so far. Plus it’s the only PPV in October for the guys.

      • Anan says:

        Is it really? What about No Mercy or whatever the October ppv is gonna be called? I think October will have 2 ppvs like April did (Backlash & GRR) SSD may end up being guys only since Evolution is women only, then No Mercy or whatever they’re gonna call it where both women and men compete in matches. We’ll see if it ends up playing out this way.

        It’s a lot of shows in 1 month but that’s pretty much WWE nowadays.

        • LP1 says:

          There’s only Super Show-Down on October 6 and Evolution on October 28. No Mercy was scrapped a long time ago. Also they announced Ronda and other women will be on Super Show-Down. Don’t forget there already was an all-men’s PPV with Greatest Royal Rumble.

          • Anan says:

            Didn’t know NM was scrapped. Thanks for that info:)

            While I don’t see it happening at least as long as Vince stays in charge I really hope that if WWE’s keen on continuing to have ppvs every month that it gets to a point where it’s either an equal amount of ppvs for men & women or each ppv that happens has equal amount of men’s matches and women’s matches.

            So no one misunderstands me, basically what I mean is each ppv, 4 men’s matches, 4 women’s matches.
            Or if they’re still having a ppv each month, 6 ppvs for men, 6 for women. While men are having their ppvs, the women can have a 6 month off season. While women have their ppv run, the men can have off for 6 months.

            If any of the above or anything close to it becomes reality I suspect it’ll happen when HHH takes over whenever that is. He’s groomed for Vince’s position I suspect. Vince no matter how much of a workaholic he is, he cannot do what he does forever. Simply humanly impossible.

            • RabidHeat says:

              I’m kinda hoping the all-women’s PPV is just a one-off to celebrate how far they’ve come tbh. I mean that in a good way, in that I think an all-female PPV each year implies that they’re still something separate from the men, when in actual fact they should be equal. My preference would be for all PPV cards to be 50% men / 50% women.

              • Anan says:

                That’s a fair and justified point. I like it and am all for it. But for many years it was men’s ppvs only. And no matter what happens from here forward, that’ll never be erased and in that sense plus the fact that the industry is right now and for many years controlled by men in many different ways the industry may likely be seen as a men’s dominant industry bc of that impossible to erase history. But this is just one viewpoint.

                For men and women to truly be equal I think it’s gotta be behind just as much as in front of the camera. Meaning not just as on screen talents. Don’t get me wrong. They’ve come a hell of a long way and are far above, ahead and beyond how they used to be seen/used. Great start! And great continued efforts! But if men/women are truly gonna be 50/50 equal which I hope will happen then it has to be on screen by women doing what the men are have done/are doing. One of the missing pieces there is women closing out the other big top ppvs in Survivor Series, Summerslam and WM. They closed out RR already. Off screen they need to be in powerful positions. Yes Stephanie is & Linda was when she was there. But seemingly Vince already had final approval and decision on everything on/off screen. A woman should have that power too. Once Vince stops maybe just maybe HHH & Stephanie will split Vince’s power 50/50 between them. May not seem like a big deal to some but having a woman in thevmusic and home media as well as network content depts won’t be so bad at least as it pertains to female talent. The PC has Sara as a trainer which is great. Adding more women won’t be a bad idea. Point in all this? Equality in an equal sense. Either or both, same amount of men and women in all off/on camera positions w/equal amount of power between men and women.

                Equal amount of titles too. Now I know there’s too many already but take some away. Both brands should have a world title, ic title, tag titles for men & women. That’s it. US title not needed bc while it does have a long history most of its existence isn’t in WWE. CWC & NXT Titles can stay as they’re on their own brands, not part of RAW/SD. But this men/women equality point pertains to those brands too especially right now NXT as that brand currently features men & women competing. The CW division is right now only men but that can change someday who knows?

    • Andrew Dellorfano says:

      Yes! It was annouced that it will be on DVD along with Evolution.

  3. LP1 says:

    I feel like they could’ve put more people on the front cover. I don’t see Paul Heyman, Maryse, Randy Orton, Natalya or the Bellas on there. And maybe JoJo and Renee and Michael Cole and the refs and maybe a few audience members also.

  4. Thomas says:

    Fantastic Artwork for WWE SummerSlam 2018 {DVD} which is better than the artwork for the WWE SummerSlam 2014 {DVD}

    • LP1 says:

      But is it better than the artwork for the WWE SummerSlam 2015 {DVD}, WWE SummerSlam 2016 {DVD} and WWE SummerSlam 2017 {DVD}?

      • RabidHeat says:

        I think we should be a bit more polite to Thomas, given that we don’t know if there is a genuine reason for the way he types. I’m just sayin’. I know I’ve been as big a d*** to people as anyone else on here if not more, but sometimes there may be reasons why people struggle to express themselves, whether it’s autism, a language barrier or something else.

        • Thomas says:

          @RabidHeat, @LP1 Yes you should be more polite to me because you’re being a kept eye on by the owner of the website

          • LP1 says:

            Not sure what you guys are talking about. All I asked was if Thomas thought the cover was better than 2015, 2016 and 2017, since he randomly only mentioned 2014.

            • RabidHeat says:

              So you weren’t being a smart a*s and trying be funny by mocking the way Thomas types by putting the {DVD} in brackets after every single PPV name then? Whatever, I’m not stupid, I know what you were doing. You just don’t like being called out on it.

      • Thomas says:

        @LP1 it is better than the artwork of SummerSlam 2010 DVD & SummerSlam 2014 DVD

  5. Timothy Thorpe says:

    I would’ve loved to have seen the No DQ TT Champ. match make the cut. But I love what did anyway. I’ll get the dvd.

  6. Robert James Emons says:

    Love the cover just wish they still listed the matches on the back of the dvds

    • RabidHeat says:

      Tell me about it; I don’t know what WWE’s problem is with this. When I take a DVD off the shelf, I want to be able to see the matches listed in case I want to watch just one particular match in future and can’t quite remember the card.

      • Robert James Emons says:

        Yeah they used to put the pics of who’s facing each other and stuff on the back that’s what I miss it was a really cool look to them

  7. Anan says:

    As far as the main ppv itself goes it was overall a great show. D2 definitely has its standouts w/Bryan vs Miz, Demon Balor who’s been absent since SSlam 2016 and Rousey’s wins. But D1 has most of the better parts of the main ppv card.

    The extras are cool enough. The preshow matches and AJ’s promise promo from the go home SD, Ambrose’s return and Rousey’s Title presentation from RAW, the latter segment from the post Summerslam RAW are worthy inclusions but so were Lynch’s heel promo and Hardy’s attack on Orton from the post Summerslam SD would’ve been good inclusions too. Just feel it should be equal like 3 RAW extras, then 3 SD extras so SD doesn’t feel less important than RAW and bc currently SD is overall the better of the 2 main tv shows. Also at least for the big 4 ppvs the NXT TakeOvers should be included even if it has to be on it’s own disc which would allow for NXT TO preshow and/or other extras to fill up the disc.

    Okay enough nitpicking. Should be a satisfying dvd for whoever gets it. You’ll enjoy most of the show and the extras that are included. If u wanna watch in order then watch the RAW/SD extras, then the preshow followed bu the main ppv card.

  8. andemoine winrow says:

    WOW ! They didn’t waste any time. They went straight to work putting this together. I will definately pre-order my copy.

  9. RabidHeat says:

    I’m not sure how I feel about these covers where they try to cram on the faces of virtually everyone on the card. It really seems to be a recurring thing lately. Better than a sppiler picture on the front of Roman holding up the title belt after winning though, which is probably what they’d have been doing a couple of years ago.
