WrestlingDVDNetwork.com can now reveal the trailer for “The True Story of Royal Rumble”.
WWE’s highly anticipated DVD and Blu-ray is scheduled for December release and promises to include a documentary that gives a “behind the scenes look” at the Royal Rumble Pay-Per-View through the years, a follow up to the 2011 Home Video “The True Story of WrestleMania”.
The first trailer (watch it exclusively below) shares a similar vibe with the intro to this year’s event and centers around Triple H’s victory in the 30-man Royal Rumble Match that night – “The Game’s” second Rumble win; this time capturing the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
Look out for the content listing and cover artwork which will no doubt follow soon!

You may recall that when the new Battleground 2016 DVD hit stores across the United States recently, there were no extras present on the disc.
That all changes next week with the release of the UK exclusive Blu-ray edition (available to pre-order now on Amazon.co.uk). Below we have a first look at the Blu-ray exclusives found on there and their runtimes:
— The Highlight Reel w/ Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn (12:42)
Monday Night RAW • June 27, 2016
— John Cena Finds Backup in “Certified G’s” (13:49)
Monday Night RAW • July 4, 2016
— WWE Championship Match: Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins (14:23)
SmackDown Live • July 19, 2016
WWE Home Video UK have given the verdict on whether or not there will be a Backlash 2016 DVD.
As you can tell from the updated statement, it appears that their hands were tied regarding the release – which will still not be happening – however, the situation looks positive for 2017 with the possibility of double packs which sees both RAW and SmackDown PPVs put out together.
Unfortunately there aren’t any plans to release this year’s SmackDown PPVs (Backlash and No Mercy). As they were added late to the PPV line up we haven’t been able to accommodate them in this year’s DVD release schedule.
The RAW PPVs however, replace the PPVs that were already scheduled (Clash of Champions replaces Night of Champions, for instance) which is why we’re still releasing those.
We’ll be looking at how to release all PPVs in 2017 and always endeavour to deliver for UK fans everything we possibly can.

As far as actual Rumble matches go I hope they include 92 94 96 05 11 and 16 for non-Rumble matches Bret/Diesel(95) Shawn/Taker(98) Rock/Foley (99) or Cena/Umaga(07) just to name a few
Hmm.. Interesting list, here’s mine;
14 matches likely to be on ‘true story of wm’ blu-ray?
My 14 wanted on ‘true story of Royal Rumble blu-ray (including Benoit matches that aren’t likely to be added).
RR 92 match – Flair no.3
RR 93 match – Yokozuna no.27
RR 94 – Quebecers Vs Owen & Bret, Yokozuna Vs Untertaker – Casket match, Rumble Match – Luger & Bret co-winners
RR 95 match – HBK no.1
RR 98 – HBK Vs Undertaker – Casket match
RR 99 – Mankind Vs The Rock – I Quit match
RR 01 – Y2J Vs Benoit – IC Ladder match, 01 Rumble match – Austins return from injury
RR 04 – Benoit – No.1
That’s just around 11 at the moment though It’ll be good to see a Hogan victory matchup too from 1990 or 1991 too as well as a few more clips of all other winners winning the Rumbe match!
That was a boring ROYAL RUMBLE Trailer! It should have included scenes from the ‘first 10 years’ of the WWF/E’s Royal Rumble Events to The ‘Attitude Era’ of Events & later to the ‘Current Era’ of Events!
Agreed…what a dumb trailer…smh…
Oh come on, that was an awesome ppv, they should release it
I’ll be okay with this as long as at least AJ vs. Ambrose appears on the Greatest PPV Matches set.
Still hoping to get the backlash 2016 ppv on dvd. Hopefully it might out on dvds one day.
Judging from the clip, I really do *not* hope, the “True” History of my favorite event of the year is mostly about the recent rumble winners, Orton, Cena, Bootista, the Reigndeer and Trips.
2004 will of course like always be something that happend in the Twilight Zone or have vanished in the Bermuda Triangle..
I really hope the doc centres around the “smaller” cool details that have happend at that great event..stuff, that never before or after has happend at the other ppv’s:
Kofi Kingstons “annual stunts” since the incredible 2012 walking on hands.. even more so, before Kofi, Carlito’s amazing springboard at 2009’s event and especially John Morrisons parkour skills expressed in 2011.
Another focus point in the doc I also would like to see, is the opening entrances; ’89, 2005 and 2008 are the greatest no. 1 and 2 entrances.. funny and great stories in the mainstory.
Besides the conceptmatch itself, I hope the release focus on some of the great “lower”-card matches that has happen at the event: Rockers vs Orient Express..one of the all time best tag matches ever (’91 event as a whole is a top 5 event for me anyway) – the 2004 event with its never before seen 4 mainevents..(included the Rumble match that got lost in the Bermuda Triangle) – 2007’s great LMS match between Cena and Umaga.. and so on.. and so on..
can’t wait to see how they put this one together.. 😉
backlash is better than clash of champions.
Backlash was terrible overall anyway no loss on the DVD. On the bright side future documentaries and match comp sets can feature these ppv matches without being repeats, that should give those sets a little more appeal.
We won’t get a Blu-ray for AJ Styles’ first WWE title victory… that’s really dumb.
