Heads up, the new WWE “BEST OF NXT 2017” DVD is scheduled for release tomorrow!
The first annual retrospective set on NXT will be a 3-disc collection hosted by NXT General Manager William Regal and will feature an introductory segment with Triple H and appearances by several NXT Superstars. It will present 25 matches and moments with a runtime just short of 9 hours.
Still not convinced? A “First Look” preview will be uploaded to the WWE Network this Wednesday.
WWE has just finalized the cover artwork for the next (and possibly the final) “Double Feature” DVD that will combine last month’s Elimination Chamber PPV with this month’s Fastlane PPV.
WrestlingDVDNetwork.com has your exclusive first look at the design!
The front cover of the “Double Feature: Elimination Chamber & Fastlane 2018” DVD will make use of the official event posters while the back will feature action shots from both the RAW-branded and SmackDown-branded PPVs. As for the content, it’s packed with matches and moments the likes of: the seven-man Elimination Chamber Match, the first-ever Women’s Elimination Chamber Match, Ronda Rousey’s contract signing, Asuka vs. Nia Jax, Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rusev, Ruby Riott vs. Charlotte Flair, and AJ Styles defending the WWE title in a Six-Pack Challenge.
The 2-disc DVD set is scheduled for release to the United States next month (get a copy for $18.96 here on Amazon.com), to the United Kingdom in May (£15.99 here on Amazon.co.uk), and will follow to fans in Australia later the same month.
Let’s take a look at the front cover, back cover and extras you can expect to see on there.
The Women’s Evolution steps inside the confines of the Elimination Chamber for the first time in WWE history! Alexa Bliss defends her RAW Women’s Championship against Sasha Banks, Bayley, Mickie James, Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose. In the biggest Elimination Chamber Match ever, Roman Reigns, John Cena, Seth Rollins, Finn Bálor, Elias, Braun Strowman and The Miz battle it out to decide the challenger for Brock Lesnar’s Universal Championship. Plus, more! The Superstars of RAW put it all on the line at Elimination Chamber!
AJ Styles tries to clear his path to the Showcase of the Immortals when he defends the WWE Championship in a six-pack challenge match against John Cena, Baron Corbin, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn and Dolph Ziggler. SmackDown’s Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair looks to stop the momentum of challenger Ruby Riott. Randy Orton tries to capture the United States Championship for the first time in his career when he faces champion Bobby Roode. The race to WrestleMania begins at Fastlane!
The sole extra we have confirmed for the DVD so far is found on the Fastlane disc, that being:
Fastlane Kickoff Show:
— Breezango & Tye Dillinger vs. Shelton Benjamin, Chad Gable & Mojo Rawley

Where the hell is balor club vs miztourage? WWE is useless when it comes to dvds. They should always put pre show matches on dvds
I don’t understand why they use phrases like “AJ Styles tries to…” and “Charlotte Flair looks to…” in the blurb, when the images right next to it clearly show that they won.
You’re looking for logic. Stop that.
By the same ‘logic’ there’s no point going to the cinema to watch any Batman/Spider-Man film because they always defeat the villain… It’s the journey not the destination that counts!
But the movie poster hanging in the lobby of the theater before you walk in isn’t going to ask “Will Batman defeat the Joker?” right next to a picture of the final scene with Batman standing over a dead Joker. WWE is not a movie, the good guys don’t always win in the end. Bad analogy.
My comment was just trying to emphasise the end result is irrelevant (to me anyway) as long as the match is good – or the movie is good. Hence I favour journey over destination. I never implied WWE was a movie and I didn’t mention good guys always winning.
Except you did mention good guys always winning: “…no point going to the cinema to watch any Batman/Spider-Man film because they always defeat the villain.” Also the end result in wrestling is very important. If every great match ended in a no contest every time, people would be pretty upset.
Yet again you twist my comments! No contest everytime? When did I imply that?! All logic has left this conversation, as I will now do.
You know what I miss on these ppv DVDs is them listing the matches on the back whatever happened to that? Will they ever bring that back?
Seeing as how the days of stuff being released on physical media in general is nearing their end, I would say no.
The PPV DVDs feel incomplete without the pre-show matches. The Balor Club vs Miztourage from Elimination Chamber is missing. If the rumors of all PPVs becoming 4 hour shows from now on are true, then at least we know they’ll have plenty of room on the second disc for the pre-show matches.
The Elimination Chamber PPV went nearly 3.5 hours long, so makes sense the kick-off match won’t be included.
As for the dual branded PPVS going forward, i don’t think they will run the full 4 hours, probably 3.5 the most so they likely won’t be adding a second disc – unless its the big 4.
Yeah I understand why the pre-show match wasn’t included. It still feels incomplete. This is one of the negatives of only releasing the shows on DVD, lack of disc space.
I’m really not sure who would put their money out for a set like this and not feel somewhat robbed that it is absolutely incomplete. Some of the pre-show matches are decent too and for sure belong on these DVDs.
Yes but WWE will find some other excuse to not put them on there despite the extra disc space. It wouldn’t surprise me. Nothing they do surprises me anymore.
