Survivor Series War Games 2022, the final WWE DVD of 2022, hit stores in the US this week!
A Fathead of The Undertaker is included free inside the packaging. Thanks goes to WDN reader Makel Collins for sharing these photos.
Juanito’s Wrestling Vlog on YouTube recently posted an early look at the Survivor Series 2022 DVD after finding it on Walmart shelves before Christmas — check out the video for a closer look.
With Survivor Series in stores, it’s that time of year again when we take a look back at the full list of 2022-released WWE DVDs and Blu-rays.
In 2022, the WWE DVDs produced in the US were current PLE (PPV) titles only, for the first time in forever. This was better than the alternative of no WWE DVDs at all, though, which almost did happen! Things were worked out, and a full slate of titles made it to North America and Europe, however WWE DVDs did not continue in Australia this year.
12 titles were released to North America, while Europe would get a handful of exclusives on top.
It was an almost documentary-less year for WWE DVDs in 2022, but “Ruthless Aggression Vol. 2” in the UK would see season 2 of the WWE Network docu-series released on Home Video.
WrestleMania would get a Blu-ray edition everywhere, while in the UK Fremantle once again produced Blu-ray counterparts for the rest of the Big 4 PLEs and even for Clash at the Castle, since Clash was a special event held in the UK; the first UK stadium show in 30 years and arguably their first proper PLE in all that time. On that note, the iconic SummerSlam 1992 event had a special 30th anniversary DVD and Blu-ray offering with extras this year in the UK.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year to all the WDN readers. Thank you for your continued support as we head into another year of WWE DVD and Blu-ray releases!
Imagine if Vince’s first order of business now that he’s back was to stop all WWE physical media being produced worldwide, lol. Literally the main reason he came back. Then he leaves again.
I’m from australia and was wondering how can I get a playable copy of the attitude royal rumble matches on dvd? surely a bluray can play a US or UK dvd right??
unfortunately, not really.
like, technically, +every+ dvd player can play every dvd, no matter the region code. in reality however a lot of devices are region-locked, so you need a code to unlock it (which you might find online, depending on your player).
An Australian Blu-ray player plays UK Blu-rays if that helps as a side note, same region code of B. 🙂
(not the same code for DVD though)
