In our best Howard Finkel voice: “Ladies and gentlemen, it is now time for the Royal Rumble… documentary”!
WWE released “The True Story of Royal Rumble” on Home Video this week, beginning with the United Kingdom on Monday and following to the United States just yesterday. So, it’s about time we all got a first look at it with these new photos of both DVD and Blu-ray editions.
“The True Story of Royal Rumble” is WWE’s big 3 disc DVD and 2 disc Blu-ray release of December, featuring a documentary portion as its main feature. Preview it now by watching our exclusive sneak peek or catch 15 minutes of the documentary on the WWE Network.
The complete 8.5 hour set packs in that documentary (running around 1 hour and 5 minutes), “deleted” scenes from the documentary as extras, four full-length Royal Rumble matches, two non-PPV Royal Rumble matches, a compilation of historic singles matches picked out from the Rumble’s 30 year history, and an interview with Shawn Michaels conducted at last year’s event.
Thanks goes to WDN reader Matthew Tremble for sending in these pics after receiving his copy of the DVD early. You can find Matthew uploading WWE DVD-related videos daily on YouTube.
For nearly 30 years, both WWE Superstars and WWE Universe members alike begin their road to WrestleMania at Royal Rumble, an over-the-top-rope, free-for-all battle where the winner is given a one-way ticket to the showcase of the immortals.
