Today’s WrestlingDVDNetwork.com exclusive brings with it new WWE DVD release dates for 2022 and addresses some questions that have gone unanswered.
But first, the cover artwork for this past Saturday’s Elimination Chamber 2022 PLE, on DVD!
This design featuring Brock Lesnar — essentially the same as the promotional poster artwork but with the Elimination Chamber logo moved up top — is confirmed to be final for the DVD cover.
Please note: WWE created this artwork in advance of the event, expecting the runtime of the show in Saudi Arabia might warrant a 2-disc set, however since it actually ran for less than 3 hours we can likely expect the DVD release to wind up as a single-disc offering instead. If so, the reference to 2 discs on the artwork here will be removed.
We’ve received the WWE DVD release schedule for Q2 2022 in the UK. This confirms that the release date for Elimination Chamber is not until mid-June, and it comes after WrestleMania 38 which we can reveal is scheduled for DVD and Blu-ray release to the UK in late May.
Before both of those, in April, UK fans will be treated to a re-release Anniversary Edition of “1997: Dawn of the Attitude”. This will turn the original 3-disc DVD set into an expanded 4-disc by adding the 1 hour and 26 minutes of Blu-ray exclusives from the original Blu-ray offering onto a new bonus disc of the DVD.
Fremantle plan to sell this title for a value price, expected to be half that of the 3-disc set (£20), so around the £10 mark, and it’s slated to be available at major supermarkets as well as online.
WWE: 1997 – Dawn of the Attitude (25th Anniversary Edition)
– UK release date: April 4th, 2022
– Format: DVD (4 discs)
WWE: WrestleMania 38
– UK release date: May 30th, 2022
– Formats: DVD (3 discs) & Blu-ray (2 discs)
WWE: Elimination Chamber 2022
– UK release date: June 13th, 2022
– Format: DVD (1 disc)
These are all UK updates, of course, but we have learned that the delayed release of Elimination Chamber to the UK (June 13th, when usually it would be expected much sooner) is because Elimination Chamber will be released to the US market on June 14th.
Yes, that nugget of information suggests, as we speak, WWE DVDs are still alive for 2022 in the US! 🙌
