In a recent exclusive update WrestlingDVDNetwork.com revealed that WWE has “The Best of NXT TakeOver 2018” planned for one of their first Home Video releases of the new year.
Now it’s official! Get your pre-orders in March 2019 by clicking here to Amazon.com.
We reported that this will be a change in strategy for the NXT DVD since at the beginning of this year we had “Best of NXT 2017” which covered NXT as whole, including its weekly show.
There has been another change too; this DVD will now be produced as 2-disc set rather than the expected 3-disc set.
And we can confirm that it will definitely only focus on NXT TakeOver events rather than the entire NXT brand as supplementary information we’ve received specifically states that it will be “a collection of the greatest matches from this year’s NXT TakeOver events”.
We’re seeing multiple references to this being a 2-disc set, including on Amazon, so that’s legit too.
This year saw some of the greatest matches in NXT history. Now you can relive the very best of NXT TakeOver in 2018 with the hottest rivalries and the fastest rising Superstars in sports entertainment.
Featuring Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Velveteen Dream, Shayna Baszler, Kairi Sane, Undisputed ERA and more!
“The Best of RAW & SmackDown Live 2018” will remain a 3-disc DVD set and this too can now be pre-ordered for next year by clicking here to Amazon.com.
The returning series will, like this year, be a February release. We now have the official synopsis (below) which gives us some hints on the first selections; Ronda Rousey’s debut, The Shield reuniting and The Undertaker returning which were all of course RAW segments.
This should be the next WWE DVD we receive a full content listing for, so stay tuned.
2018 was an incredible year for WWE. New Superstars emerged, rivalries came to a head, and history was made.
Now, relive the best of RAW and SmackDown Live for the year in this definitive collection. Witness the debut of Ronda Rousey, the return of Undertaker, the reuniting of The Shield, and so much more!
Oddly, “Best Pay-Per-View Matches 2018” was not among this new batch of release dates (it was/is expected in January) but have no fear, we don’t suspect this title has been cancelled because it has already gone live for pre-order in the UK, Canada and Australia. Its match listing and cover artwork were also unveiled in recent weeks, so perhaps this is just a temporary error.
This month’s TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2018 Pay-Per-View will hit Home Video in January and is another of the four new titles listed on Amazon.com.
Following recent trends for the PPV DVDs this one has been pencilled in as a 2-disc set.
WWE TLC is the one night out of the year where no table, ladder, or chair is safe from destruction!
Don’t miss RAW and SmackDown Superstars bring out the furniture as WWE ends this year with a bang!
The Royal Rumble 2019 DVD will follow in March – also with two discs. That’s DVD only for the United States with no Blu-ray edition on the horizon (except if you’re in the UK or Germany).
Unfortunately we have learned that as of now the Topps trading cards will no longer be included in the PPV DVDs moving forward, as you may have noticed with Super Show-Down and this week’s new Evolution DVD.
The Road to WrestleMania begins as 30 Superstars from RAW and SmackDown Live enter WWE’s most prestigious over-the-top-rope free-for-all… the Royal Rumble.
Which Superstars will win the epic match and write their name in history while getting a one-way ticket to headline WrestleMania?
All of these aforementioned titles have now been given a release date for the United States market. See the updated list on our WWE DVD Release Dates page.
And with that another year of WWE DVDs (and Blu-rays, sometimes) is about to begin!
Your comments above about the DVD PPV matches for 2018. Amazon has it,I know because I ordered 2 weeks ago and they delivered it last week.
I’m still hoping for all of the In Your House PPVs to come out on DVDs.I loved seeing them when they first aired and wanted to own them. he WWE Network may be nice, but it isn’t the same as owning something that you can backtrack so you can really look at during the event. I’m stillbmaking my mind up about Network.
I have no interest in any of those DVDs.
Same here…. So many Classics still undone
Hopefully an Unreleased DVD in the 2nd quarter.
Still wanna see a 3 Disk DVD or Blu Ray of Ultimate Warrior Unreleased Matches.
I also want to see other PPV matches too that weren’t on his others like Royal Rumble with Slaughter, SS match with Macho Man (was released in MM set), WM V, etc.
Id like to see every NXT takeover released on DVD.
I just knew before I clicked in that it would be four titles that are an obvious given. Hoping to hear of some unique 2019 concepts soon.
When does WWE Crown Jewel 2018 come out? I mean I am waiting patiently too find out. Hopefully it is annouced when soon too complete the 2018 ppv collection.
I second that I was wondering also?
If they can do a best of Raw and SD 2018 and best of PPV 2018 why can’t they do a best of NXT Takeover 2018 and best of NXT 2018 I thought 2018 was a great year for NXT and had some amazing matches
Best of Takeover should have been this year’s events in their entirety
Best Buy in the US has PPV 18 up for preorder. You can go there if Amazon doesn’t do it.
Guessing the Taker Return segment will be the one where he unexpectedly showed up & had that verbal in person segment w/HBK. They stole the show that night and didn’t even touch each other once.
It’s not here in the release dates that came through. Maybe another Walmart exclusive or just not yet announced – we’ll let you know.
Is WWE crowl jewel getting released next year as well or not?
FIRST! Wow this is great news!
