Mark’s Fantasy Concept #11 – WrestleMania Anthology

April 1, 2012 by Mark D

WDN Fantasy Concept

With WrestleMania XXVIII just a few short hours away Fantasy Concept #11 takes a look at how a WrestleMania – Collectors Edition Blu-Ray Anthology should look and what should be featured on it.

I think that this one should be released around WrestleMania XXX, and should be the definitive ‘collectors edition’ anthology. Each show should feature a second disc with the moments and matches on the road WrestleMania and this should be hosted by Jim Ross and Gene Okerlund (for the earlier years). (Similar to the WrestleMania 3 Championship Edition). Also I would have a series of interview clips of past and present Superstars with their thoughts and memories of each WrestleMania.

Also on the WrestleMania X edition I would have an alternative commentary track from ‘Radio WWF’ which featured Gorilla Monsoon and Jim Ross.

Unfortunately it’s not going to be possible to release the majority of shows in HD quality; however they could absolutely re-master the sets and take better care of the blurring and edits.

Here they are – the first 10 WrestleMania’s of the Collectors Edition Blu-Ray Anthology.


I hope you like these covers and that you really enjoy WrestleMania XXVIII – #TeamBringIt 😉

It’s great to hear your feedback, so please sound off in the comments below! Do these proposed WWE Blu-Rays interest you?

    I would love forcthis to happen, but seeing as Benoit and Owen are on atcleast what 3 or 4 of these, they’d either release the commentary for that match… or erase the match completely! Never gonna happen, unless Owen’s widow and Nancy’s sister get their heads out of their rear-ends and leave their wrestling careers the h*** alone!

  2. Paul says:

    Now that WWE doesn’t have to censor the WWF name and logo, THIS IS A MUST and should hopefully happen after WM XXX. I would definitely get this on day one if they were to do it right and load it with extras and features.

    I don’t think two disc’s per ‘Mania would be likely as that would be a 60-disc set. Also Blu-ray discs can hold a ton of information and they would be able to put a good amount of extras for each event. We can only pray this fantasy comes true now that we don’t have to deal with blurs!

  3. Anan says:

    This should be released when all the big names who made WM what it is are available to be on the set via comments. HBK, Austin, Taker, Hogan, Vince, JR, King, Bret, and others. Therefore, maybe WM40 or 50 may be the best time. But they could start interviewing them between maybe WM30-WM35 or something like that so most of the guys who are interviewed won’t look so old when they are see on the set.

  4. warresg says:

    unfortunately the cover for wm xx will not going to make it.

  5. Jacob Roderiques says:

    They should realease all the starcades in a antholigy

  6. jonathan gonzalez says:

    how will this cost

  7. Tyger says:

    I Like anyone because i got to say that please help me

  8. Alex says:

    This is a very good idea, in theory. I think a better selling point would be, like the DVD anthology sets, selling them in box sets, because purchasing 28 individual Blu-rays could be too costly for the consumers. Also, another hard sell would be releasing 24-28 again, since those already exist on Blu-ray. Nevertheless, it is a very good idea, and I could imagine these being sold in 5-WM box sets, sans 26-28 (3).

  9. Kaleb says:

    You should have the individual logos showcased, otherwise it looks good. I agree they should fix the blurring and make it look more like they didn’t slap it on there all sloppily and they should remaster them. Well they were remastered on the original boxset.
    I hope they release a new boxset soon ’cause my old one is shit. There’s missing discs and some are scratched up.

  10. Daweom says:

    I really hope that WWE uses this idea and releases these on Blu-ray, preferably as one whole set. Awesome work sir

  11. Anan says:

    Awesome idea! Unfortunately perhaps too awesome.

  12. neverAcquiesce says:

    You’ve had a whole day man, where’s XXVIII?! I kid, I kid.

    Pretty sure that XX cover would never fly.

  13. matt says:

    if u could make adifferent cover for wm xx maybe one with just eddie, then send this to wwe, they need to get with the times and release more blu-rays, its just like when dvds first came out years ago and ppl still clinged on to vhs

  14. Sticky Fingers says:

    I’m all for these awesome concept designs but i’m not sure if i like the idea of certain covers giving away the results on certain matches. i know its what wwe does nowadays but it no excuse to give away the result when the person has yet to watch the ppv or that particular match.

    • JamesS says:

      Some of these events are more than 25 years old. I don’t think anyone who would buy these wouldn’t know Savage won the WM4 tournament – I think the spoiler warning expires after 20 years!

  15. Roaster says:

    Damn those look awesome. These concepts are great but also depressing because WWE is never going to make them and if they do the content will be very lackluster like their recent releases. I would love the Bret Hart concept you did.

  16. oldschool says:

    sweet, now lets make it real

  17. Anonymous says:

    Those were amazing! Great job! How about a King of the Ring Anthology in DVD and Blu-Ray formats?

  18. Brad Attitude says:

    this are brilliant design cocepts covers.

    i love how it says on the back for wrestlemania ix:

    WWE Championship Match:
    Bret “Hitman” Hart vs. Yokozuna vs. Bret Hart LOL

  19. jasongoldsmith says:

    I love the idea for wrestlemania xx but it will never happen at any time in the future.
    i am also pretty sure if we even see any ppv with benoit in it the announcing will be heavily edited like the satans prison match from new years revolution 05 was.
    i am not and will never condone what the man done but i would think that WWE cannot go on forever acting like he never existed.

  20. LordCrumb says:

    WOW dude these look really really nice!

  21. Billy says:

    The only way I would re buy the wrestle mania anthology set is if they redo the blurring on the WWF logo cause they did a poor job on it

  22. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    Nice job. WM11 cover is my favorite… just because I went to that ‘Mania back in the day.

    Still waiting to see your “4Life: The Controversial Story of the nWo” concept DVD cover 🙂

  23. James says:

    20 & 26 are Epic

  24. KEN SHAMROCK says:

    I think you could have picked a better picture of Rock/Austin for XVII but other than that, VERY solid work.

  25. Sawcesome says:

    Shut up and take my money!…is what I would say if these existed.

  26. Philip says:

    Simply WOW, amazing concept and AWESOME choices for the photos!!!! THEY SHOULD HIRE YOU, have you ever applied for their art department? I’m serious, your work adds something rather than being “just packaging”…

  27. Cody Schields says:

    Great stuff Mark. I think WWE should look at hiring you to do their actual cover art. I’ve been impressed by everything I’ve seen from you.

  28. Harry Faversham says:

    A herculean effort there mate. They look wonderful. The only thing I would change is I would have Bret and Owen on the cover of Wrestlemania X. But I guess that isnt likely to happen anyway and thats a great shot of Shawn Michaels. Also notice you put in some special features. That would be a really good idea if they did blu rays. These concepts always put a smile on my face. Cheers.

  29. Adam says:

    Best one yet! Awesome. I REALLY doubt, but REALLY hope they do this one day.

  30. Anonymous says:

    DUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! KICK AZZZZZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! now what u need to do is have it in a box set…and how about for fantasy the summerslam anthology, king of the ring anthology,survivor series anthology and rumble anthology blu rays for box sets too

  31. SAFRetro says:

    Wow these Look Amazing i love the artwork, very catchy, love the pictures in the middle, would love wrestlemania 6,8, 9 and 10 on blu-ray 🙂 You should send these over to WWE see what they think ;p.
    Nice work cant wait for the second part 🙂

  32. Tommy B says:

    I absolutely LOVE the idea. I would be very excited if this really happens…
