Over the weekend we heard that the RAW 20th Anniversary Collection DVD box set will in fact NOT be released to the UK and European market after all.
High production related costs are cited as the reason. We would like to thank WDN reader Jon Christopher for passing along the update.
However, fans in the UK and Europe have the following three titles to look forward to in the coming month. All three of these are UK exclusive on the Blu-ray format:
Speaking of the RAW box set, it’s currently back-ordered both here on Amazon.com and on Best Buy’s website. The product has not been available to order on the official WWEShop site since the Cyber Monday surge at the beginning of this month.
The 12-disc RAW 20th Anniversary Collection DVD did make it to Australia in limited numbers (currently listed as “out of stock” on WWEDVD.com.au).
An interesting note about the Australian release is that the exact same packaging as the US version was used (with US rating, catalog number etc) apart from the outer seal on the set which has an Australian rating sticker, and of course the discs themselves being Region 4 encoded. You can get a glimpse of that in the video below.
Early information we’ve received on the release of the WrestleMania 30 DVD/Blu-ray next year reveals possible plans of a “limited edition” version, most likely a store exclusive, with one of the bonuses being a WrestleMania themed book.
In addition to that, as of now there will be the usual 3-disc DVD and 2-disc Blu-ray editions, and for certain overseas markets a ‘bare bones’ 2-disc DVD without extras.
Last September the John Cena and Randy Orton “Superstar Collection” DVDs made it to the UK and Europe for the first time. It looks like another two from the series will be joining those – Daniel Bryan and Sheamus at the beginning of the new year.
