  1. Eddie says:

    Those will be all extras on bluray

  2. Eddie says:

    So those will all be the extras

  3. THOMAS says:

    looking forward to buy this dvd set

  4. Carlos says:

    Ya there were a lot of things that were a must have in 2013 like an actual divas match, Ambrose and undertaker, Cody Rhodes and orton m, rvd and y2j, many things are missing

  5. Pacman Addison says:

    a great set but missing superstar uprising and cena pick bryan for summerslam still a must have!!!!!

  6. Carlos says:

    I have to ask; what did big show do to be on the cover? Did he threaten to cry if he wasn’t on it? Why of all people does he deserve that?

  7. Shane A. says:

    The fact that so many Daniel Bryan matches are missing from this set gives me the idea that they are gonna give him a set this year. Also gives me a feeling the Rhodes set is gonna happen considering not Goldust Vs Randy Orton or Cody Rhodes Vs Randy Orton is not on this set. Both were big a deal.

    • Anan says:

      I wouldn’t mind a Daniel Bryan set. If they did do one, I’d imagine a compilation set like Eddie’s Vva La Raza set where there were comments and such spliced in between matches. His time on the mai nWWE roster began in 2010 so it’s still early for a documentary.

  8. Donald says:

    I am proud to make my own Raw/Smackdown dvd sets every year (ever since 2007) and they may not be in a fancy-schmancy dvd box set, but they’re together and include the content everyone wants to see. I wonder if the chairshot Orton did to Daniel Bryan and if the Punk piledriver will be cut out. The brawl between Triple H and Lesnar the same night the Punk vs Cena Raw classic happened should’ve been included. Glad I make my own best of Raw/Smackdown dvds, mine are unedited and better content; have the full Post Mania show! So much was missed on here, should’ve been 4 discs. Also why would the Authority make the cover instead of the best superstars that year: CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, and others? Enough said by me, hope DVDs this year include more quality.

    • Jay Karia says:

      I have just ordered this DVD today. There are only 13 matches in the whole set, there could have been more, but that is just my personal opinion.

  9. Carlos says:

    And WHY is SANTINO vs Cesaro on there?!?!?!?! It Doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to figure out who will win that one

  10. Carlos says:

    Ya I agree they should’ve put more Wyatt family action on there and I’m not saying it’s a bad thing that there is a lot of sheild matches on there but I think they could’ve added less of those and more single matches

    • Anan says:

      I guess I can agree to that. They really should make these sets with more discs. At least one more because to cover content from an entire years worth of two weekly shows, three discs just isn’t enough as a lot is left off. And by a lot, I mean a TON.

    • Pacman Addison says:

      Their Debut should’ve been on there

  11. Anan says:

    The Wyatts were some of the most interesting characters this year and still are. I know they came in towards the end of the year. But surely they’ve done some stuff that’s deserving of being on this set. At least the debut vignettes and/or some promos or the night they attacked Kane. Something. But they’re nowhere.

  12. WWEFan2014 says:

    If the Blu Ray extras have

    RVD/Jericho/Rock’s return to Smackdown as advertised previously. I am getting this day 1.

  13. captain planet says:

    I was fine with a few being left off due to the massive quality we’ve seen in 2013, but there are some glaring omissions.

    Disc 1 needed at least a few of these matches: Jericho/Punk, Ziggler/Bryan, Jericho/Bryan Eve/Kaitlyn, or Jericho/Ziggler before WM29. That was a super hot part of 2013, hosting some of the best tv matches of the year, and it’s mostly missed here. That Cena/Punk match admittedly takes up almost a third of the disc…I wonder if it’s the commercial-free version?

    Disc 2 is another missed opportunity. These were the weeks where SD and especially Raw were on fire with matches, many of which involved The Shield, Cesaro, Bryan and notably Chris Jericho. That’s barely represented here. Love that Taker/Bryan/Kane vs The Shield made it; that’s one of the ‘musts’. As is Orton/Bryan. But I recall Cesaro/Jericho on SD being really good, Ryback/Bryan on Raw being surprisingly good, and Kofi/Team Hell No vs The Shield was insanely good. But The Shield have solid representation later so I can understand their omission here. I say that Jericho/Axel should’ve been Jericho/Cesaro and Kofi/Fandango should’ve been Ryback/Bryan.

    Disc 3 is super Shield heavy, which is deserved, but I think the famous RVD/Jericho match or Goldust/Orton or Cody/Orton should’ve been included somewhere. At least one of those – I think they’re saving RVD/Jericho for a new RVD DVD, if I had to guess.

    They should really make these 4 discs, especially since they’re no longer doing BRs for them. This year deserved 4 discs. Even if it was a bonus thing at FYE, something to include just 5-6 more matches could’ve really made this go from a B grade to an A grade release.

    • Anan says:

      I agree with this set being four discs. I kinda wish they included Ambrose vs Taker along with the post-match deal with Taker got put through a table. It’s a pretty huge deal as ever since then, they’ve made constant references to it on every single show/PPV. Considering that, it should have been here, IMO. If it was, I would hope to see the off-air segment where DX come out to even things up for Taker. But if or when a Shield set is done, they may include it there.

      I also agree with your list of what should have been included. I thought the triple threat match between RVD, Orton and Christian to decide who’d challenge Del Rio for the WHC at Summerslam would have been a great addition. I thought that was one of the best main events of SD this year.

  14. Shane A. says:

    Also does anyone know if there will be a Best Buy Exclusive Blu Ray with extra stuff? If so I’ll pick that up. The more content the better

    • Timothy Thorpe says:

      I checked their site a few days ago and they said the blu ray was not available for shipping, so I would doubt it.

  15. Shane A. says:

    Overall the set looks decent. Though to be honest I would be lying if I said this was the best of Raw and SmackDown. Most of it is yes, but there are quite a few misses on this dvd. Three disk is just not enough for both shows for a full year.. They’ve misses some key matches and moments.. If they we’rent going to release this on bluray in the u.s they could’ve at least made it 4 disk. I would’ve added

    – RVD Vs. Chris Jericho
    – Cody Rhodes Vs. Randy Orton
    – Goldust Vs. Randy Orton
    – Daniel Bryan Vs. Antonio Cesaro
    – Daniel Bryan Vs. Christian
    – AJ’s Pipebomb
    – RVD Vs. Christian Vs. Randy Orton
    – Wade Barrett Vs. The Miz (Night after mania)
    – The Shield’s first lost
    – Undertaker Vs. Dean Ambrose


  16. charlie says:

    I think the 1st disc is great, but from there it just keeps going down hill. Really disappointed that RVD vs Jericho, Antonio vs Bryan, and RVD vs Orton vs. Christian aren’t on there!

  17. Nick says:

    cant wait to see what the blu ray matches/content is!!

  18. Carlos says:

    There is also not 1 single divas match on there

  19. Carlos says:

    Also everyone is underestimating about how great Seth Rollins actually is he doesn’t get e nought credit which sucks that he doesn’t have a singles match on this DVD set

  20. Carlos says:

    Damn there are SO many matches left off of this like instead of Kingston and fanDANgo they could’ve put Ambrose and Undertaker

  21. Wonderllama says:

    I like this content. The vast majority is very good stuff and important. But a DVD set like this need four discs, like the 2011 version had. So much is left out. One more disc could solve that problem. These are the RAW matches I was hoping to see:

    1/14 – John Cena vs. Dolph Ziggler (Steel Cage)
    4/29 – Randy Orton vs. Cody Rhodes
    7/22 – Antonio Cesaro vs. Daniel Bryan
    10/28 – John Cena vs. Damien Sandow
    11/18 – 12-Man Tag Team Match
    12/16 – Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan

    Also the 6/14 Smackdown match of the Shield vs. Orton, Bryan, & Kane match when the Shield got their first loss!

  22. Jordan Noon says:

    For Christ sakes, to the people whinging because the Ziggler cash-in isn’t in there, look a bit harder. It’s listed under “Alberto Del Rio vs. Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter”. The cash-in happened after that match!

    As for the content on this set, yeah it’s missing some good stuff, but we can’t be disappointed, we did get some really awesome stuff on here. If you don’t like it, you don’t have to buy it.

  23. Steve says:

    I don’t know whats worse….
    1. HD footage not released on Blu Ray
    2. The fact that Raw & Smackdown! don’t have separate “Best of Releases”
    3.Only 15 matches out of 260 hours of footage

  24. AD Degreez says:

    Dissappointed!!! Def not buying

  25. ZJ says:

    No Jericho vs RVD? Cesaro vs Bryan? Rollins vs Bryan? Cena vs Sandow? Ambrose vs Undertaker?

  26. Corey Rice says:

    No punk pipe bomb before the rumble? No rvd vs y2j no sand ow or ziggler cash ins? Disappointed by not suprised

    • AJ says:

      The Ziggler cash-in is there…it’s Jack Swagger & Zeb vs Del Rio Match. It will just include the whole match which is better.

  27. David says:

    Really? They don’t include AJ Lee’s Pipe Bombshell? That was like one of the greatest promos in 2013.. maybe it was a wrong idea to get a blu-ray player as they seem to make more blu-rays for overseas than in the States

  28. Justin F says:

    At the very least, WWE FINALLY including content through December, even though it’s just 1.

  29. Tommy D says:

    I am happy with what is included, but too many great matches were left out for segments. Ambrose/Taker, Gauntlet with Bryan/Swagger/Cesaro/Ryback, Sandow’s Cash in….Only 15 mathces? That is a little disapppointing. I REALLY wish we were getting a Blu Ray of this.

  30. Mason says:

    3 thing that strike me that should have been here

    1. Rob van dam vs. Chris Jericho from the raw after mitb

    2. That gauntlet match from raw where Daniel Bryan and Antonio cesaro put on a greAt match

    3. Undertaker vs dean Ambrose from smackdown

  31. Eddy says:

    Have we gotten a reason to why U.S. does not get all Blu Rays?

  32. Steve213 says:

    I’m guessing the Ziggler Cash in will be after Del Rios handicap match?

  33. Jake E says:

    Its a shame with lots of sets you miss the last few weeks (shows) which sucks.

  34. @IMDJLUIS says:

    I’m gonna have to get me a Blu-Ray player from the UK to get these Blu-Rays that aren’t being released in the U.S.

  35. Bowers says:

    looks like a great compilation only a few things left i would have liked to have seen. Jericho Vs. RVD, Bryan Vs. Swagger, Cesaro, And ryback, and the 6man on smackdown where the shield finally got beat.

  36. WWEUK says:

    I Think the Sandow Cash in will be a Blu-ray exclusive extra on the UK/Europe Edition of the Blu-ray if there is one, Jericho RVD is a possibility, Del Rio v Ziggler from Smackdown in October the one AJ is on about is on the Battleground Blu-ray as a BR exclusive, Cena Ziggler is another Possibility, Undertaker vs Dean Ambrose from smackdown is another Possibility, look forward to the Blu-ray extras fro this one!!

  37. AJ says:

    Quite frankly, it was such a good year for in-ring action, not everything was going to make to it. They’re never going to be perfect. I mean, the Shield could be in every match on this DVD given their compelling matches this year. Other misses include Sandow cash-in, Jericho vs RVD, Cena vs Ziggler steel cage match, and Del Rio vs Ziggler (not MITB cash in) to name a few.

  38. Ray Cornwall says:

    This is going to look fantastic in Blu Ray, just like past years! I can’t wait to buy it…

    …wait, what was that, WWE? HUH?

  39. Jake E says:

    It’s a shame no sandow money in the bank cash-in (that sucks).

  40. Dalton says:

    IS the blu-ray confirmed cancelled?

  41. SD Jones says:

    The Punk TLC, the Henry retirement speech, Punk vs. Cena, the Ziggler cash in, the cool championship ceremony, and a bunch shield 6 mans…. I don’t think anyone can really be upset with this.

    • Corey Rice says:

      What???? No punk pipe bomb rumble promo no rvd return or ziggler Sandow cash ins no y2j or rvd very disappointing set

  42. Jake E says:

    Not the best year ever but generally pleased with this set (i think i have to rewatch some stuff). I may buy(shame its a 3 disc they should have two seperate ones again which equal 6) but its a shame some of the best stuff is on the ppv blu rays which im not planning on buying will probably buy the 2014 ones though.

  43. WWEUK says:

    Can anyone post Repeats on other DVD/Blu-ray UK PPV’s Etc, I want to see what i have i thanks.
    Looks fantastic this going to pick this up on blu-ray for sure 🙂

  44. Tommy B says:

    Some cool things on here, but this generally looks like more of a miss

  45. This looks fantastic! 2013 was the best year of overall in-ring action WWE’s had in a long time, looking forward to picking this one up.
