This new logo artwork has come through for WWE’s 2017 DVD and Blu-ray on DDP!
We previously posted how the 2017 WWE Home Video schedule is shaping up for fans in the UK. Now, below, here’s how it’s looking for the United States in January, February, and March.
“Best PPV Matches 2016” will be the first 3 disc DVD set to kick off the year (now confirmed to be coming on January 17th), “The Best of RAW & SmackDown 2016” is the one to look out for in February, followed by “Diamond Dallas Page – Positively Living” in March.
Sprinkled in between those will of course be the PPV titles. As of now we are seeing signs of a Roadblock 2016 DVD but not the recent SmackDown-exclusive Backlash and No Mercy events that didn’t see a DVD release earlier this year, however plans can always change and there were some discussions about “double pack” PPV DVDs to combine RAW and SmackDown shows.
– TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2016 [DVD] – January 3, 2017
– Best PPV Matches 2016 [DVD] – January 17, 2017
– Roadblock 2016 [DVD] – Date TBA
– The Best of RAW & SmackDown 2016 [DVD] – Date TBA
– Royal Rumble 2017 [DVD/Blu-ray] – Date TBA
– Diamond Dallas Page: Positively Living [DVD/Blu-ray] – Date TBA
And speaking of “Best PPV Matches 2016”, let’s get a first look at its cover artwork…
The cover planned for the first 3 disc DVD set of the new year will feature 12 WWE Superstars — Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, Dean Ambrose, John Cena, The Undertaker, Seth Rollins, Finn Bálor, AJ Styles, Shane McMahon, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, and Charlotte.
We can confirm, as per our last announcement, that this title will not be making it to Blu-ray.
The content listing shouldn’t be far off as historically it’s been unveiled in November!

Why it always has to be on DVD ? I normally buy the Blurays for the 60fps and HD quality. How disappointing…
TLC 2016 getting a blu-ray release in the US. Very cool. As for Best PPV Matches 2016, just like the last 2 years, a complete waste of a release.
Sorry, bit of a typo there. TLC will only be on the DVD in the US as per usual, but it is getting a Blu-ray edition in the UK.
Ah ok. It did seem pretty random that TLC, of all the B shows, would get a blu-ray.
No Blu-ray = No buy
I hope it has
Roman Reigns vs AJ Styles at Extreme Rules
AJ Styles vs John Cena at Summerslam
AJ Styles title win at Backlash vs Dean Ambrose
Dolph Ziggler vs The Miz at No Mercy
Still hope to see WWE Backlash 2016 and No Mercy 2016 on DVDs.
Hopefully the best ppv matches set has AJ’S Title win at Backlash and Ziggler/Miz from No Mercy.
Weird that Roadblock is announced. Hopefully that means Smackdown PPVs will also get a DVD release some day.
I wouldn’t mind if they just did a boxset with all 2016 PPVs/shows. Especially if they include the NXT Takeover shows.
Weakest first quarter ever regarding physical media release.. only Royal Rumble on Blue can save it…but it really has to shapen up considering the previous 2 years rumbling events .
I am however positive for the last 3 quarters of the upcoming year (OMG 3, Shane, Falls count anywhere vol. 2, the inevitable Undertaker doc..just to name few wishes).
Really hoping that the Best PPV Matches includes Roadblock, No Mercy and Backlash from this year like it included Elimination Chamber last year.
I wouldn’t be surprised if matches from No Mercy and Backlash will be on Best PPV Matches. Technically they were PPVs outside the US. I live in Canada and our cable company were airing those events for $55 each and I think even in the UK and other European countries. So they would be considered PPVs similar to Elimination Chamber, eventhough it was Network exclusive, was still a PPV offering outside the US.
Backlash & No Mercy were also available on Comcast in the U.S. so its a possibility.
Backlash and No Mercy were available on PPV systems all over the US. Not sure where this story came from that they were only on the WWE Network.
