Extreme Rules 2013 will be released on Blu-ray format to the United Kingdom later this month on Monday July 29th. Below we have an exclusive first look at the finished product!
The latest we’ve heard from FremantleMedia is that as of now they plan to release all 2013 WWE PPVs on Blu-ray in UK and Europe. At the moment for the US market we only know of upcoming Blu-ray editions for Payback (this Tuesday) and SummerSlam in September. Details of the Money in the Bank 2013 release and beyond are not yet confirmed.
As a reminder, the UK WWE Blu-rays are locked to Regions B and C.

“…the UK WWE Blu-rays are locked to Regions B and C.”
There has to be a legitimate reason why only some of the B-level PPV’s are made available on blu-ray in North America and others aren’t. I don’t buy the excuse that blu-rays don’t sell well in North America. They make every compilation/documentary/best-of releases available on Blu-ray in the US and you’re telling me all of those sell so dramatically better than B-level PPV’s that it’s not even worth putting them out. I honestly don’t buy it.
I honestly believe all compilation/documentary/best-of sell better than the B-level shows…i don’t think these B-level shows even sell that well on DVD to begin with. To produce DVDs is much cheaper than Blu-rays. I think these days the average fan will pay $12-$15 for the DVD rather than $20+ for the same PPV on Blu-ray. I think it sucks, but its not the only time WWE has been behind on video formats. They were still releasing VHS til about late-2005 – long after stores cleared them out and wasn’t until 2002 when every single PPV was on DVD.
But still don’t get why they pick and choice which PPVs to put on Blu-ray…there is really no answer to why Extreme Rules was not a Best Buy exclusive when Elimination Chamber and now Payback are exclusives.
If that’s the case that the B-level PPV’s don’t sell well on DVD, let alone Blu-ray, then how come they randomly choose certain B-level PPVs(like Payback) to put on Blu-ray at all then? I think there’s another reason, honestly.
The only reason why WWE Dont release every ppv in America is because they want you to buy Sets they release like Best PPV Matches 2012, 2013 etc, thats the only reason think about it, They are going to put Brock lesnar vs Triple H from Extreme Rules 2013 on Best PPV Matches 2013 so that will give some the insentive to purchase Best PPV Matches 2013 on Blu-ray to have it in HD when the whole show is only available on DVD in the US, the same reason why Money in the Bank 2013 is only going to be available on DVD in the US Cause the 2 MITB Ladder matches will be available in HD on the Upcoming Money in the bank Anthology Blu-ray so that will give others the insentive to purchase that set, WWE are very clever, they want to market and make much money as possible thats why they know if they release every PPV on Blu-ray in the UK/Europe they going to be making lot of money and guaranteed to sell no matter if they are B level PPV’s, but then i dont understand why they did not release Over the Limit 2011, Capitol Punishment 2011 and Money in the Bank 2011 on Blu-ray in the UK/Europe!!
@Wrastlinnnn, think about what you said. They want to make as much money as possible, right? So instead of having the customers buy 8 B-level PPV’s on Blu-ray, they would rather have those fans only buy 1 Best Of The Year PPV Blu-ray? Sounds like a bad game plan to me. Honestly I’d rather have customers buy 8 throughout the year instead of 1 at the end of the year.
It’s all about the…
Daniel is right, it’s all about the light purple suit jackets!!!!
Can we seriously start a petition to have all PPV’s realeased to Blu Ray in the US! It’s 2013 WWE! Wake up!
We most definitely should.
Another that we should hope for is putting back the resume feature (Java) on Blu-rays. They had this for all releases up to about late-2011 and stopped with Best of King of the Ring. Not sure about others but i can’t watch 4.5 hrs in one sitting, takes me couple nights to finish and i love to just put the disc back in and resume from where i left off instead going through the beginning skipping all those boring ads, etc.
DVD have did this feature for years, not sure why WWE would remove it.
I am lucky in live in the uk to get all the ppvs on bluray, but why not do the same for the US it baffles me
will get this, was a great event
Hope that money in the bank gets released on blu ray like last year did
I think it’s reminiscent of WWE back in 1999-2001. They released only some PPVs on DVD, and the rest on VHS. Same applies now with Blu-ray and DVD.
WWE should release every single PPV on DVD and Blu-Ray in North America and all over the world. I don’t understand why they don’t
One day. One day WWE will release ALL Blu-ray in the US. Soon enough I hope.
