We hear that the nine titles, WrestleMania 16 through 24, are in pre-production right now with their artwork being reproduced from the designs that featured on the original DVDs.
Taking one such example, we can probably expect to see the same cover for WrestleMania 18 as shown in the photo below of the 2002 version, with of course some minor alterations made, such as adding the current WWE logo. It is also our understanding that the new, re-released titles will for the most part contain the same content on the discs as when the events were still on sale.
The update should be further confirmation that the frustrating edits plaguing the “Attitude Era” events in the Anthology box set (Mania’s 16, 17 & 18 among them) should be a non-factor here.
All signs point to a UK re-release in the first quarter of 2017.
Following on from last week’s cover reveal for the new “Best Pay-Per-View Matches 2016” DVD, below we have a new shot of the box art to give you a closer look!
This title will be the first 3 disc set that WWE puts out in 2017. It’s scheduled for release on January 16th to fans in the United Kingdom, following on January 17th to fans in the United States.
The next 3 disc DVD set of this year will be “Randy Orton – RKO Outta Nowhere”.
It’s coming two weeks tomorrow, with a Blu-ray edition too! Grab your copy from Amazon.com.
Although the format of this one is a match compilation, latest word is that the segments with Orton in between the matches are presented “documentary-style”, rather than just sit-down comments, and combine to form a mini-documentary on milestones and matches in his career.
The DVD of last night’s Hell in a Cell 2016 PPV event will officially hits stores on November 29th. If you’re in the UK or Europe you’ll get the DVD (and an exclusive Blu-ray) in early January.
