Here’s the synopsis for Royal Rumble 2012:
It’s the dream of every superstar—to headline WrestleMania. Last year’s Royal Rumble was the biggest ever, when for the first time ever, 40 men competed, with Alberto Del Rio outlasting 39 other competitors, earning him a championship match at WrestleMania 27, as well as the stunning returns of Kevin Nash and Booker T.
This year’s event promises to be even bigger, packed with new surprises and the superstars of Raw and SmackDown, including past winners Alberto Del Rio, Randy Orton, and John Cena, and superstars looking to add this impressive goal to their resume, including Wade Barrett, Kofi Kingston, CM Punk, Sheamus, The Miz, Mark Henry, R-Truth, and more will do everything in their power to overpower and outlast the competition as the Road to WrestleMania 28 begins at the Royal Rumble.
Stone Cold Steve Austin: The Bottom Line on the Most Popular Superstar of All Time is actually released first to the United Kingdom in only 13 days at Silvervision.co.uk!

Kurt Angle has commented on Twitter about the cover art for The Best of King of the Ring DVD, that we revealed recently:
anglefoods1: I am Proud to Be on the Cover of “King of Ring” Dvd. Thk U Wwe. But tna is My Home. I Wish U Both the Best!!!
@Anonymous… Not too interested in a Sgt. Slaughter set. He was pretty sloppy in the ring and although he held the title I wasn’t into his work. I think the guys overdue for a set are Kurt Angle, British Bulldog, Booker T, Rick Rude and a decent set on Mr. Perfect.
anybody else want a sgt slaughter career/documentary dvd??
Any Shawn Michaels comparison = instant kiss of death.
I could see AJ Styles in WWE, he would be like a Shawn Michaels type kinda of wrestler in WWE, era 1995-1997.
I always think about the look of certain wrestlers and how I could never see certain ones in TNA or WWE, just on look and character alone. For example, I could never see Cena in TNA and could never see Styles in WWE. I actually could imagine Air Boom in TNA but could never see Abyss in WWE. The list goes on and on. I personally always liked Kurt in WWE. It fit him better and at the time he had great competition (Benoit, Jericho, HHH, Rock, Austin) He then had a few injuries and we saw him with Undertaker, Guerrero, Big Show, Lesnar and Hogan. His final work was against Cena, Orton and Mysterio. His matches in TNA, although great are not matched by a long shot for the work he did in WWE.
what angle tweeted was spot on for keep on the good side of wwe
I wish kurt would comeback to wwe, he would be much better in wwe than just destroying the hole TNA ROSTER. And yes today is the 14th Anniversary of the Screwjob LOL XD.
Angle’s comments were good, but its a shame that Owen Hart wasn’t on the cover too 🙁
*aren’t on the same night
I agree SRB. If they are on the same night, Or doing PPVs/Ippvs on the same night. They aren’t really competing. There’s plenty of days in the week for wrestling. WWE shouldn’t be occupying 3 of those days though. Unfortunately this is why the need to stick to the brand split so mid card and low cards are stuck on Superstars.
@Steven: I’d imagine that people don’t remember the 1998 ‘screwjob’ so much because it was part of a storyline, and thus irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. Also, The Rock didn’t spend the next 14 years of his life crying about it.
I like Angle’s comments, nice to see him being an adult. I loved the Monday night War days with hardcore competition. But, now I’d actually like to see two different wrestling companies where they’re actually able to get along in the world.
Not to make anyone mad but today is the 14th Anniversary of the Screwjob, an Holy Crap moment and the funny thing is that they did a Screwjob the very next year that people doesn’t remember because all the hatred is to Shawn Michaels at 1997 Survivor Series and the Screwjob, but with that DVD and Blu-ray I think Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart fans are at peace now.
