The box set will hit the UK this November and it’s up for pre-order now on and John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns, Sting, The Undertaker and Seth Rollins will grace the cover artwork, which you can get a peek at below:

    Who is That Guy Attacking Edge in The Corner ?

  2. Vintage Simon says:

    Can figure out everyone on the cover, other than the guy Sheamus has in the air. Any ideas?

  3. OpTic Scump says:

    Anyone know who Kane is fighting with in the pic? Bret Hart? Or Jim Niedhart?

    • LP1 says:

      Bret and Neidhart are double teaming Tito Santana from Rumble ’88. Kane isn’t really fighting anybody. I guess they tried to make it look like he’s kicking Neidhart.

  4. Barry says:

    the old school logo of the royal rumble would’ve been better for the cover.

  5. Shane Montgomery says:

    The cover artwork is one of the best yet on any WWE DVD. I really like it.

  6. ECW08Rulez says:

    Of course there’s no Benoit! No purchase for me

  7. mememememe says:

    It looks like they just jumped from the early days of the match to the recent era. I don’t see any Attitude Era stars.

  8. SCSA says:

    I think I would’ve been happier to see a front cover such as that of the royal rumble 1991/92/2001 or 2010 cover’s w/superstars walking towards you including top random winners & competitors from all time!

    Or we could have seen one such as the 2011 cover which would include the faces of all the winners of the Rumble matches in WWE History!

  9. LP1 says:

    Is it just me or does Big John Studd look like a cartoon drawing?

  10. Kenny says:

    Ok, that’s a cool cover!

  11. SCSA says:

    I guess it looks okay… as long as it has some of the older superstar’s shown too!
