You may recall seeing “Best WrestleMania Main Events” premiere on the WWE Network during this year’s WrestleMania Week, however 3 extra matches will be included on Home Video (those highlighed in yellow above) to fill up the 2-disc set, giving this new WWE DVD a similar format to the Best Main Events of the Decade: 2010-2020 DVD released worldwide last year.

    i think spoilers should be avoided on a DVD message board. As fans who watch Wrestling DVDS might not have acess to the shows before the DVD. you can talk about your hopes for a realease with out spoiling it. maybe be helpful and tell fans who wont see the show for another month or two if its worth buying..
    post covid i think impact! the only company realeasing events in a timely manner. i know we have had some random AEW dvds but they not regular.

    • DDT says:

      additionally dvd fans might be lower incomes as they do not have the latest smart tv or wifi package for wwe network.. not also wwe network does not work on some deices it previously worked on.

  2. Andemoine Winrow says:

    ”BACKLASH” was great. The 5 championship matches rocked. Congratulations to Dominic and Rey Mysterio on being the first ever father and son tag team champions. So glad Bianca belair retained. In fact EVERYONE retained except Dolph Ziggler and Bobby Roode. What a shame. The d.v.d is coming home.

    • MikeS_87 says:

      That’s nice of you to post spoilers and ruin it for fellow fans that haven’t had the opportunity to watch the show yet….

      • RabidHeat says:

        Do people seriously scroll down wrestling comment boards if they have a PPV that they’re still intending to watch on delay after everyone else though? That’s pretty stupid if so.

  3. Andemoine Winrow says:

    Did ya’ll see ”BACKLASH”? They just announced that ”HELL IN A CELL” will be next month. “” MONEY IN THE BANK” is next month. So what, now they”re pushing back ”MONEY IN THE BANK” again ? What the hell ? !

  4. whut says:

    personally I think it would have made more sense to have left off the iron man match (since it has such a long runtime) and instead include 2 or 3 other matches.

    (of course that being said, this is aimed at the most casual fan. since I’m pretty sure the vast majority of users here probably already own the majority of the matches)

  5. andemoine winrow says:

    HA, HA ! REAH RIPLEY does kinda look like Boy George !

  6. RabidHeat says:

    I didn’t realise Boy George was wrestling at Backlash!

  7. LP1 says:

    Some of these comments though. Lol They’re out in full force today.

  8. Ravensflock says:

    Very lazy dvd! Only 2 disc? Jumps from 3 to 12 and seriously how many times do we need the iron man match on dvd! It’s a pass from me

    • the DVD Guy says:

      Totally agree this is double dipping for a DVD set. I already have all these on DVD. It would be nice to see them release something else.

  9. Patrick MCNAMARA says:

    Very excited WWE will definitely continue to release ppv DVDs.

  10. Not interested…

  11. Andemoine Winrow says:

    Love the Cover of the new up=coming ”BACKLASH” d.v.d. It will be released 2 days after my 51st birthday. And the color discs of ”WRESTLEMANIA” part 37 look good. And Happy to see ZELINA VEGA coming back to W.W.E. As far as the best of the wrestlemania main event matches d.v.d, DON’T NEED IT ! I have em all.
