The second 3-disc WWE DVD compilation of the new year officially hit stores in the United States this time last week and it’s set to follow to UK fans in less than 2 weeks!
“The Best of RAW & SmackDown Live 2017” packs in more than 30 of the best matches and moments on the RAW and SmackDown Live brands last year. If you haven’t got your copy yet then watch an exclusive sneak peek clip below featuring host Charly Caruso talking about the “break ups” witnessed in 2017 including, of course, Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens.
Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens are featured in two matches on the set; their United States title match that marked the end of Jericho’s run with the company at that time and the Triple Threat match also for the United States title on a night Y2J made a surprise return to WWE and AJ Styles captured the gold. A highlight package of the Festival of Friendship segment from February is also shown.

The next WWE Home Video offering this year will be Royal Rumble 2018 beginning with the US release of the DVD on March 6th (pre-order now on Amazon.com).
Royal Rumble 2018 was headlined by the traditional men’s Royal Rumble Match won by Shinsuke Nakamura but also the first-ever women’s Royal Rumble Match won by Asuka. This year the DVD release will be formatted as 2-disc set in order to accommodate the 4-hour PPV event and extras.
There will also be a UK exclusive Blu-ray edition which will be a single-disc release.
We’ve just received the finalized content listing which we share with you below. Please note that as of now the DVD and Blu-ray extras are expected to be identical for both versions.
