The first two WWE DVD releases of 2014 are the TLC PPV on January 14th, and The Best of Raw & Smackdown 2013 on January 28th.
For The Best of Raw & Smackdown 2013, we can confirm that unlike the Best PPV Matches 2013 set, a Blu-ray edition is planned right now. The synopsis is shown below and we can exclusively reveal a few bits of content slated to be included.
WWE Superstars deliver 52 weeks of action on Raw and SmackDown per year, with no off-season. This DVD/Blu-ray set compiles the most thrilling matches and segments from the year 2013. Witness the epic rivalries, shocking moments, and all the biggest stars that defined the calendar year in WWE. Featuring John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Rob Van Dam, Chris Jericho, Sheamus, AJ Lee and all the top Superstars and Divas. Showcasing the year’s fastest rising stars such as The Shield, The Wyatt Family, Curtis Axel and “Faaaandaaaangoooo”!
So far we can confirm the following content: Brock Lesnar’s office invasion of WWE Headquarters, segments from CM Punk’s WrestleMania feud with Undertaker and Paul Bearer, Mark Henry’s “retirement” speech, and The Brothers of Destruction reuniting.
The Best of Raw & Smackdown 2013 (3 discs on DVD, 2 discs on Blu-ray) has today been listed for pre-order here on Amazon.com from $20.95.
With the photos below, we can now reveal the type of packaging WWE has planned for the 12-disc “Raw 20th Anniversary Collection” DVD box set this December. It looks to be a cardboard design with a book style spine and a thick outer slipcover. Do note that this is just early concept packaging shown and may differ for the final product.
Official information we’ve received also suggests that the box set will be available for a shorter time than the average WWE DVD release, with limited quantities produced. You can pre-order yours now for $79.99 by clicking here. The box set releases on December 3rd.
Goldberg’s WWE DVD is released today! That’s in stock now here on Amazon.com.
In just a few hours this eBay auction expires. It’s the complete WrestleMania Anthology DVD box set and is currently only $56.00 with FREE shipping!
Can’t wait for the 2013 Best of Raw/SD! set… 2013 has been my favorite year in a while. I need to get hopping on pre-ordering the RAW box set though… can’t believe how bad they messed this up with the Blu-Ray release!

Why would anybody invest time and money into the goldberg DVD? He played by his own rules, never learning how to wrestle, never learning mike skills. He was one of many reasons why WCW imploded!
I just got done talking with mike and he totally disagrees.
Hoping for Cena vs. Punk on the Raw/SD 2013 compilation since History of WWE looks pretty weak to me.
Thrilled about the RAW box set, but less than thrilled about the packaging. Those cardboard sleeves are reminiscent of the packaging for the Summerslam and Survivor Series anthologies (along with Kane’s set). Not the best for keeping the DVDs clean of scratches.
That reminds me…now that the WWF scratch logo can be used again, I wonder if the Survivor Series anthology sets for the events post-1996 will be produced, as the blurred logo seemed to be the biggest impediment to making those sets.
Who Knows if the Survivor Series Anthology will ever continue
I believe Owen Hart was also a big part of why they never continued… or am I wrong?
The RAW set seems a little weird looking. But, I’m ok with whatever because you get 20 full episodes unedited and uncensored.
Christian Vs. Randy Orton
Daniel Bryan Vs. Antonio Cesaro
2013 has been a great year for WWE. So the best of set should be great. I wish they’d of went with 4-Disc DVD 3-Disc Blu Ray again. But oh well.
Hoping these Make the Cut.
CM Punk Vs. John Cena
Cody Rhodes Vs. Randy Orton
Goldust Vs. Randy Orton
Daniel Bryan Vs. Randy Orton (street fight)
Rob Van Dam Vs. Chris Jericho
I’m looking for this RAW box set THEY BETTER NOT CANCEL IT anyways I hope i can get it if i have enough money before christmas
The content for The Best of RAW & SmackDown 2013 looks really good so far. I definitely wanted the Brock Lesnar office invasion to be included. 2013 was a great year for WWE, especially on RAW with longer matches and the rise of Daniel Bryan, etc. Looking forward to this set. I just hope they include more November – December moments on here this year.
Limited time will hopefully make the Raw boxset a cornerstone of collections in tsn years or so. Defiantly preordering now.
Bryan vs Jericho, Punk vs Jericho , Bryan vs Cesaro , Bryan vs Christian, Bryan vs Orton street fight all need to be in the best of Raw & Smackdown 2013
Even though the Punk vs Cena match from Raw will be on the History of WWE DVD/BR it better be on the best of Raw & Smackdown set as well!
Goldberg will be in the $5 bin eventually.
It’s probably there now if you look hard enough.
I’m so painfully disappointed that they cancelled the Blu-Rays for best ppv matches and Survivor Series. I think the big 4 should always be on blu-ray then you have the best ppv matches to make up for it at the end of the year.
I’m pleased that they’re gonna design the Raw box set like this. At first i thought it was gonna be like a digipak with 4 discs stuck on 3 folded out parts.
You won’t be saying that when the discs end up scratched all to hell.
Surprisingly when WWE did these cardboard style packaging for the Summerslam, Survivor Series Anthologies and even the Kane DVD, my discs all ended up perfectly fine with absolutely no scratches and played perfectly. Even to this day. You just have to careful handling them.
Trick is holding them by the edges, not touching the bottom, which i see lot of people do when they post unboxing and collection vids on Youtube. Thats why I avoid second hand DVDs like a plague, some people just don’t know how to take care of their stuff.
Blu-ray discs would be perfectly fine with this style because of the hard coat and its practically impossible scratching a Blu-ray disc unless you really try. A lot of movie studios use this style for their Trilogy releases.
Wait I’m confused.. why would there be more of a chance for the DVD discs with this kind of packaging?
Basically discs are on hubs like standard digpacks and DVD cases. But this RAW set, Survivor Series and Summerslam Anthology are stored in cardboard slots so the backing of the discs touch the cardboard so its possible to scratch the discs when you take them out and put them back in.
But they use smooth cardboard so discs aren’t likely to scratch and they slide in and out pretty easy.
Got it.. Thanks!
