“The Biggest Party of the Summer” begins early in the Home Video space as WWE unveils a first look at the SummerSlam 2022 DVD cover artwork (before the Vegas event itself takes place!) with strong indications what the final design will be.
Right now this is exclusive to WrestlingDVDNetwork.com but expect to see similar picked up on the Amazon.com product listing and other retail sites shortly.
While it should be considered a placeholder for now, most of this design with Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar should stick – WWE has modified the newest promotional artwork for the event into a DVD cover, moving up the SummerSlam logo and adding “2022” as is usual when they opt to make use of the poster for the DVD release.
The “Roman Reigns” and “Brock Lesnar” text may be removed and a DVD logo added soon, likely with a “2-disc set” logo too (2 discs are currently pencilled in depending on the show runtime). The back cover artwork is not yet available since that most often includes action shots from the event, but the spine is, with that artwork also spotlighting Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar.
Other than the Last Man Standing main event between Reigns and Lesnar, matches announced so far includes of the likes of Pat McAfee vs. Happy Corbin, The Usos vs. The Street Profits, Becky Lynch vs. Bianca Belair, and Logan Paul vs. The Miz!
The SummerSlam PLE will air on Saturday July 30th, with the DVD release following to US fans a month later on August 30th. And remember, UK fans will be treated to a Blu-ray edition of SummerSlam along with the standard DVD, with those due to hit stores in September!
Turning back the clock 30 years to SummerSlam 1992, have you heard the iconic Wembley event will be re-released on its exact 30th anniversary next month, and on both DVD and Blu-ray formats?!
Packed in with the show will be the dark matches, a rare Countdown show, and more.

We recently reported that first-run copies of the DVD version will include an orange-coloured DVD case, which will be pretty unique for a WWE DVD! Fremantle have now provided a visualisation with this new pack shot:
Pre-order SummerSlam 1992 – 30th Anniversary Edition on Amazon.co.uk or WWEDVD.co.uk.
I sure hope that they record the ”A&E” series ”W.W.E RIVALS” on d.v.d
This ”SUMMERSLAM” out-did last year’s. The outstanding ”RAW” women’s title match between BIANCA BELAIR AND BECKY LYNCH with the return of Bayley, IEO SHIRAI and DAKOTA KAI. The return of EDGE. The great tag title match between THE USOS and THE STREET PROFITS and that amazing main event of Brock and Roman. 4 stars. August 30th can’t come fast enough.

Lazy cover for a lazy card. Wonderful.
It really feels like Summerslam is an afterthought this year and they’re just looking ahead to Clash at the Castle.
while it’s far from the best cover they have done, I still appreciate the 2022 SummerSlam artwork (I think those “put countless faces on the front” covers are, almost everytime, a lot worse than focussing on the main event).
I’m curious Pay Per View Events aren’t shortened to PPVE, so why are Premium Live Events shortened to PLE? Wouldn’t PL make more sense? PPV events, PL events. Sounds better.
Because people commonly say “Pay-Per-View” (usually without saying ‘Event’), whereas nobody just says “Premium Live”?
Nobody except people working for WWE and Peacock say Premium Live Event either.
Safe to assume the orange case is DVD only?
I don’t see why they can’t put the Blu-ray in an orange case considering they are a thing.
The Disney movie, Red was recently released in an orange Blu-ray case, so it’s not like it only has to be for one format.
