July 12, 2018 by Daniel Bee

WWE Home Video 2018 - Logo

Rumored since early last year, the first-ever WWE DVD on AJ Styles is now official!

“AJ Styles: Most Phenomenal Matches” is next to join the 2018 WWE Home Video schedule with a release date of November 6th to fans in the United States, expected to hit the United Kingdom the very same week.

A new product page for the AJ DVD has been created here on Amazon.com.

The Amazon page contains a brief synopsis for the title but WrestlingDVDNetwork.com is bringing you a more detailed synopsis and exclusive first word on five matches that are already confirmed!



Since joining WWE in 2016, AJ Styles has truly become “The Face That Runs the Place” on SmackDown Live, impressing audiences with unbelievable athleticism and undeniable fortitude.

For the first time ever, WWE Home Video collects AJ Styles’ most phenomenal matchups from his first two years in WWE featuring unforgettable bouts with John Cena, Chris Jericho, Shane McMahon, Kevin Owens and more!

WWE - AJ Styles Wins US Title in 'Unseen' Madison Square Garden Match

The new AJ Styles project was originally speculated to be a documentary-led release however it soon became clear that the format will instead be a match compilation (hence the name “AJ Styles: Most Phenomenal Matches”).

One such match reported as in the works for this DVD since way back in July 2017 was an “unseen” AJ Styles match from Madison Square Garden in which he fought Kevin Owens for the United States Championship and unexpectedly won the gold in a rare non-televised moment.

The match is likely being included here but isn’t quite confirmed yet – but we do have a list of a handful that are! The first bouts to make the 3-disc set are all three WrestleMania matches AJ Styles has competed in to date and both of his WWE Championship victories.

  1. Sean says:

    I might give this a pass.

  2. Shane C Montgomery says:

    Well I bought the “Women’s Evolution” ” DVD and the first disc’s is so scratched up from being stacked ontop the other two that it only plays to the Victoria cage match and will not play any longer. So frustrated with this cheap Warner Bros. packaging. And of course I can’t find the receipt to return it for a replacement. Now who says stacking disc’s is not a problem?

    • RabidHeat says:

      Well I can’t speak for the issue you’ve had; all I’ve ever said is stacked packaging has never resulted in a damaged disc for me personally. If it ever happens to me then obviously it would change my opinion, but right now I can’t be sure that it didn’t happen because of the way you were handling the discs. Only you know what actually happened.

      • Shane C Montgomery says:

        Well, I took the disc out of the box and put it into my BR player. It’s not like I used a chainsaw to remove the disc. I had the same problem with others as well and if this was the first I would not be complaining so much. I understand this is the way it is going to be from now on because of media sales, but it doesn’t mean we have to be happy with it and as time goes on I am sure people like me will complain less and less but they continue to cheapen the product we all love and until that plateaus, there will be complaining.

    • Kelsey Malone says:

      My copy also only goes to the spotlight on Lita. Very frustating

  3. meme says:

    Hopefully this has a few of his WCW matches and the WWE matches from 2002, and maybe just maybe some of the XWF matches since they had one on the Hogan DVD from 2006, but who knows if that’s possible still today.

    • RabidHeat says:

      I think they would just have to square it with Jimmy Hart as I believe he owns the footage. Hopefully he’s still on good terms with them. They certainly weren’t “phenomenal matches though”, so maybe they should only include one XWF match at best.

      I don’t see them including more than one WCW and early WWE match each either, as the precious space will be needed for as many WWE matches as possible, which for the most part have been awesome. I’m hoping for the Brock match as it didn’t make the Best PPV Matches set and I don’t buy individual PPV DVDs apart from ‘Mania and the Rumble.

  4. RabidHeat says:

    Well this is a must buy for me due to the Backlash 2016 main event finally being released, but I would’ve liked a documentary. However, if they’re holding back on a doc because they want to tell a more complete career story in the future, then that’s fine by me. That was the only issue with the Kevin Owens documentary; great doc, but just too soon.

    • Anan says:

      Agreed on the possible reason why this AJ set didn’t include a doc and the KO doc being great but too short. What I loved about the Bret Hart Best There Is Was Ever Will Be doc and Stone Cold’s The Bottom Line doc was
      1. It was a career spanning retrospective type doc
      2. Very informative detailing the important/significant/memorable and popular portions of their careers
      3. Comments from them and some of the other important individuals from throughout their careers.
      4. The docs were done AFTER they had retired and were inducted into the WWE HOF. If I’m not mistaken I think their inductions were even part of the content or special/extra features section of the respective sets.

      Doing docs on whoever after they’re retired should be imo a regular and both aforementioned above docs are definitive proof why.

      Not yet retired is why I believe Kane & Taker haven’t gotten docs yet. God knows both deserve one as do their fans myself included. With them being at the end and close to retiring best at this point to wait till they’re finished, then release the doc sets on them. However Unreleased sets on both can be released before that.

    • Anan says:

      That match might be on here but could also be saved for – if/when there is one released – an AJ documentary set. You don’t wanna release the same match on multiple sets.

  5. Eric says:

    My favorite moment is their Survivor Series debut. I was there live, in Indianapolis.

  6. Daniel Dummer says:

    When the shield arrived to Raw via helicopter was a cool moment

  7. Steve says:

    Another lazy releasen with no documentary of HD footage put in DVD format. It’s asinine in 2018 we have to deal with DVD quality.

    • captainplanet says:

      It truly is. Pay a premium price for less quality than available on The Network. For really marketable ideas, like a collection of AJ Styles matches that were all filmed in HD, there is definite interest there. I understand not doing old stuff in BR format anymore, but for things like this and that Seth Rollins release? Come on!

    • RabidHeat says:

      This site may aswell be renamed BluRayvsDVDDebate.com

      EVERY article just descends into it.

      • Roly says:

        This is why I very rarely frequent the site anymore. To be frank, the site has just become boring.

        • Daniel Bee says:

          Let me fix a few things here…

          This site comment section may aswell be renamed BluRayvsDVDDebate.com

          EVERY article comment section just descends into it.


          “This is why I very rarely frequent the site anymore. To be frank, the site has just become boring.”

          If that is why you’re bored here then don’t scroll into the comments.

          And if you’re bored on one of our exclusives about an AJ Styles DVD, well, we aint got much more for you.

          Thank you and good night 🙂

          • Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Life says:

            Always layeth the Smackdown on the critics the smoothest way possible.. 😉

          • RabidHeat says:

            Do you deny the amount of times this BluRay ar2gument is regugitated though, Daniel? I get what you’re saying, but surely you must conceed we make a valid point in our own right. Most of the time discussion about content or released schedules or the excitement for upcoming releases etc. is getting completely pushed out the way for arguments about HD vs. standard def. quality, when WWE have made it quite clear how they feel about producing BluRays, so the argument is just futile at this point. I just wish the focus could be on what we are getting a little more, rather than what we’re not.

            Yes, “comments section” … fairly obvious that’s what I meant I would’ve thought, since an article wouldn’t “descend” into anything. Bit pedantic there. Plus, the comments section doesn’t have a name, does it? The site does.


            “And if you’re bored on one of our exclusives about an AJ Styles DVD, well, we aint got much more for you.”

            I’m pretty sure Roly was referring to the comments and not taking a pop at your article, given that the context of their reply was around my comment re: the BluRay debate.

            All respect to you and the site staff Daniel, but you know, I’d be remiss not to defend myself on a couple of points there.

      • LP1 says:

        There really is no debate. I’ve yet to hear anyone on the other side of the argument say that DVD’s are better in any way.

        • RabidHeat says:

          DVDs are better. There you go; now you can’t say you haven’t heard it said. 🙂

          The reason they’re better for me is that they’re cheaper and I like to have more money in my pocket, since I have a wife, a child and other interests outside of watching wrestling.

          • LP1 says:

            Cheaper doesn’t always equal better. That’s a personal decision.

            • RabidHeat says:

              I know LP1; I was making a joke that they were “better” because they were cheaper. Obviously I didn’t mean it was a superior product.

        • SAB says:

          DVDs are inferior in comparison with blu-ray in terms of picture quality/audio and even packaging. No argument can be made for rather buying a DVD over an equivalent blu-ray that makes sense or would stand up to scrutiny.

          • Philip says:

            Actually, SAB, I prefer DVDs because they’re cheaper and more portable. I have a portable DVD player which I use regularly due to travel, and 99% of my physical media collection is on DVD. If everything was on Blu-ray I’d never be able to watch it. So, that’s my argument and it clearly stands up to scrutiny. Don’t be so small minded. 🙂

          • RabidHeat says:

            And yet some people would argue that no argument could be made for buying a BluRay over digital streaming in HD, and would call you a dinosaur for still purchasing physical media. My point is, respect other people’s choices instead of acting like everything should be done your way.

            • LP1 says:

              Incorrect. Not everyone has the internet capabilities in their area to stream HD videos. There’s a lot of rural places where upload/download speeds aren’t as fast as they are in more populated areas. So buying blu-rays in their case is still the best option for watching and owning HD videos.

              • RabidHeat says:

                You can still just respect people’s choices as to what they wish to purchase with their own money.

                • LP1 says:

                  Umm, yes I do. But that’s not what this conversation is about. It’s about which format is better. I never said anything about how people should spend their money. One person said he buys DVDs because of portable DVD players. All I did was let him know that portable blu-ray players exist as well because he seemed to be unaware of that.

    • Anan says:

      It’s asinine that people use a site like this to complain about quality. You don’t like dvd quality in 2018. Fine. I don’t either. But I’ve accepted that it is what it is, have dealt w/it and moved on. Suggest u do too. In 2018 there’s seriously far more important things going on in the wtthan what’s released and in what format/quality. Personally as much as I don’t like dvd quality I rather have that than the respective content not be released at all.

      If u really want superior quality over dvd get the Network for only $9.99 and enjoy everything they have to offer there in better than dvd quality.

  8. DJ Luis says:

    Yeah, it’s way too early to put out a WWE documentary on AJ Styles. Although, if they can get all of his TNA footage, then by all means, do the documentary. Hopefully when/if that is possible, they will make a proper documentary on Sting as the one they most recently released seemed like something they would have just put on the network and didn’t put a lot of time into it like they did with Paul Heyman’s documentary, for example.

  9. Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Life says:

    Yet another release, in a thick box that would be more suitable for a VHS-tape, coming up, to fill up twice the size of a Blu-ray, with great content that looks like shyt on media not suitable for HD-filmed material.

    Performer and most matches – Phenomenal? Check!

    Format of release – Phenomenal? That’s a big huge Uncheck, WWE!

    • sjfkjn says:

      All thanks to cheap people who bought DVD versions over Blu-ray for many years.

    • RabidHeat says:

      What is it with you and the “VHS tape” comparison every time a release is announced?

    • meme says:

      If you care so much about being technologically up to date why do you even have physical media? The point is that you own it.

      • RabidHeat says:

        Lol yeah, if cared that much about being current, you’d think he’d have moved completely on to streaming in HD.

        • whut says:

          actually if I’m not mistaken the WWE Network is streaming at 720p. so physical media (in terms of bd) would provide both a higher bitrate and resolution.

          • Anan says:

            True. But the WWE Network can hold more content on it than any disc space will allow and since their bluray sets were usually if not always only 2 discs that’s not a lot of content compared to everything The Network currently has on it. And The Network can be viewed from any device while discs need compatible players to watch it. In a way people get more content and better than dvd quality for less $ w/The Network in the long run.

          • David says:

            WWE Blu-rays are 1080i and WWE DVDs are HD downscaled to 480p (LOL!)….which is basically a notch about VHS quality.

  10. Anthony says:

    If the July 7, 2017 match is included I’m getting this for sure. I was ringside for that. Hopefully they include other matches you can’t catch on the network.
