“Undertaker: The Last Ride”
UK Release – November 23rd, 2020
US Release – December 15th, 2020
Not so fast! WrestlingDVDNetwork.com can exclusively reveal that WWE will in fact be releasing “Undertaker: The Last Ride” to fans in the United States first on November 17th, 2020.
This will be the date it’s available through Walmart who will have a 4-week store exclusive window.
We have word that this initial run of copies of “Undertaker: The Last Ride” in the U.S. will include ‘Alternate Artwork’ too! This looks to be alternate artwork on a slipcover over the standard packaging, and this artwork will not be present on later produced copies.
Everywhere else in the U.S besides Walmart, the trade-wide release of December 15th, 2020 will apply, which is how we’ve ended up with two different dates, since store exclusives fall outside of the regular WWE Home Video schedule.
We learned recently that the U.S. release will also include a bonus item of a ‘Taker mini comic-book, presumably included in both the Walmart exclusive and the wider release, going off early information we received. There’s a chance this is another perk to the Walmart offering, though.
“Undertaker: The Last Ride” will be a 2-disc DVD set collecting together all of the episodes in the docu-series and 25 minutes of extra footage; the animated bonus episode to the series which is titled “Tales from The Deadman”.
Our WWE DVD Release Dates page has been updated to reflect the good news of an earlier-than-expected U.S. release date.
There are a few ‘Taker updates also coming from the UK/European side. The UK release date remains locked as November 23rd, 2020 and the release to Germany has been scheduled for later that week on November 27th.
By the way, the UK release is the day after Survivor Series 2020; as of right now the PPV will take place exactly 30 years to the day when The Undertaker made his debut at Survivor Series 1990.
Amazon product listings have now surfaced:
The UK will be receiving a standard DVD, standard Blu-ray, and a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray (the latter available through WWEDVD.co.uk).
WrestlingDVDNetwork.com has a scoop for you on the UK’s 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition — the ‘Alternative Artwork’ in the U.S. will also be put to use as the artwork for a slipcover on the Blu-ray Collector’s Edition!
We now see this will be a 1-disc Blu-ray, and no other regions besides the UK and Germany are releasing a Blu-ray for “Undertaker: The Last Ride”. The German market will apparently have the ‘Alternative Artwork’ for both the standard DVD and the Blu-ray versions, but in limited numbers (1,000 for DVD and 1,000 Blu-ray), which sounds like another two potential ‘exclusives’ with regular versions of the DVD/Blu-ray having a different cover design in Germany.
Finally, we hear WWE’s reveal of the cover artwork is imminent, both the standard and the alternate! That should be the next update, so stay tuned. Join our free email list below to get notified:
WrestlingDVDNetwork.com can also give you a sneak peek at the cover artwork for Payback 2020 on DVD. As confirmed recently, this will be an exclusive release to the UK and Europe in October.
Payback is currently up for pre-order at WWEDVD.co.uk but expected to be available elsewhere too.
WWE finalized the artwork you see below, while Fremantle, the UK licensee, are currently working on the remaining artwork elements such as the back cover.
