Updates on WWE WrestleMania 36 DVD & Classic ‘Mania Re-Releases, Cover Shots for Chamber 2020

April 4, 2020 by Daniel Bee

WWE WrestleMania 36 - Free on WWE Network!

WWE is full steam ahead on tonight’s and tomorrow night’s WrestleMania events, and the same for a combined Home Video release too!

WrestleMania 36 will arrive on DVD and Blu-ray formats in North America from May 12th and will follow in UK/Europe from June 8th. At this time only a DVD version is planned for Australia which will be available from June 17th.

Amazon.com now have both the WrestleMania 36 DVD and Blu-ray available to pre-order here.

Amazon’s U.S. listing and an internal schedule lists the DVD as a 2-disc set, however the UK and Australian listings for the DVD specify it to be a 3-disc set which is the more likely scenario given the speculated runtimes of the events including the Kickoff Show content.

The below promotional cover artwork for WrestleMania was published over on Amazon, which we believe to be a placeholder until the official artwork is unveiled soon, especially since Roman Reigns is featured who will no longer be involved with the events due to health concerns.

EXCLUSIVE: WrestleMania 15, 17, 18 And 19 DVDs Back On Store Shelves This WrestleMania Season!

WrestlingDVDNetwork.com broke the news last month that the WrestleMania 15, 17, 18 and 19 DVDs would return to sale in the UK as individual offerings before WrestleMania 36.

And we’re pleased to report that has now happened, and they’re unedited!

WrestleMania 15, 17, 18 and 19 were re-released through HMV in the UK, originally planned to be an exclusive line for a few months. Perhaps due to the current COVID-19 situation, which has led to HMV stores in the UK temporarily closing their doors, these ‘Mania DVDs are also now available through WWEDVD.co.uk in addition to HMV’s website.

Thanks goes out to @Tickc317 for the first look photos above.

As for why WrestleMania 16 (2000) was snubbed with these new DVDs, we’re told the priority was put on the Rock/Austin trilogy of matches, as well as the Rock/Hogan classic. There was also a perception that WM16 was not as widely acclaimed at the time, or at least enjoyed less so than the others overall. Nonetheless, more ‘Mania re-releases could happen if the demand is there.

Let’s take a closer look at the WrestleMania X-Seven DVD (MY WAY, OR THE HIGHWAY!):

In our last update the front cover artwork was unveiled for the next WWE Home Video release: Elimination Chamber 2020.

The U.S. box artwork has now been finalized and so has the back cover artwork, as revealed here:

WWE Elimination Chamber 2020 DVD - Official Box Artwork


The next challenger for Becky Lynch’s RAW Women’s Championship is up for grabs when Shayna Baszler, Natalya, Liv Morgan, Asuka, Sarah Logan, and Ruby Riott battle inside the Elimination Chamber, WWE’s most sadistic steel structure.

Aleister Black takes on “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles in a No Disqualification Match! The Street Profits defend their newly won RAW Tag Team Championships against Seth Rollins and Murphy. And in the second Elimination Chamber Match of the night, The Miz and John Morrison put their SmackDown Tag Team Championships against The Usos, Lucha House Party, Heavy Machinery, Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode, and The New Day. Plus, more.

Who will survive the night and continue their Road to WrestleMania unscathed?

    Hi guys, I changed your two comments below to links instead to allow us to get our own article up about this today on WDN (along with something special extra), if you were wondering. Hope that’s okay.

  2. Patrick McNamara says:

    I’m really looking forward to getting WWE Elimination Chamber 2020,WWE Super Showdown 2020,and Wrestlemania 36 on DVD. Really excited about the matches at Wrestlemania 36. Glad that Edge and Randy Orton got hardcore. In 2020 that’s crazy that I said that. Spoiler alert; glad that Bray Wyatt finally got that huge Wrestlemania win he has deserved for a long time now. Happy that WWE was able to pull of a decent show without a crowd. One way or another that is going to be historic. Don’t worry the virus outbreak is leveling off. So we’re halfway home with that, thank god for that.

    • LP1 says:

      Bray got his big WrestleMania win? Where? Was that even a match? I don’t know what that was, but it damn sure wasn’t a match or a fight. It was an acid trip is what it was.

      • RabidHeat says:

        Where? As per the official WWE results and the WrestleMania Wikipedia page, that’s where. I mean yeah, I get what you’re saying, he counted the pin himself and it didn’t feel all that much like a match etc. etc. but at the same time, wrestling isn’t real anyway and they were just trying to entertain us, so ye know… not much point in overthinking it.

        • LP1 says:

          Yes, on paper, for those who keep track of statistics, technically it counts as a win for Bray. I suppose. But seriously, WTF was that? If people consider that a major “win” for Bray, then I don’t know what to say anymore except cocaine is a hell of a drug.

          • RabidHeat says:

            I mean I do agree, yeah. It certainly didn’t show that Bray can beat a big name in as wrestling match, lol. So whether he is any more credible now going forward? Probably not. You make a good point.

      • Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Life says:

        Was something that could have happend on MTV’s Wrestling Society X. -lol-

    • RabidHeat says:

      I don’t know where you are in the world but in the UK we’re not even close to halfway there; we’ve just had nearly 1000 people die (and that’s only in hospitals) in the past 24 hours.

  3. Andemoine Winrow says:

    I hope the ”WRESTLEMANIA” part 36 d.v.d cover comes in 3-d. That would be awesome.

  4. RabidHeat says:

    The way to go for the third disc of ‘Mania IMO is to include the very best stuff from the crowdless Performance Centre TV eps on the way to ‘Mania, as they’ll probably never get released anywhere else anyway. That would be:

    – The Edge/Orton Promos
    – The Cena/Wyatt Promos
    – The ‘Taker/Styles Promos and segments
    – The Heyman/Brock Promo from the ‘Go Home’ Show
    – Perhaps the 3.16 Day segment (since Austin playing to no crowd was pretty funny)
    – A few of the best matches from those shows, if they will fit.

    Disc space shouldn’t be an issue as all the Roman/Goldberg stuff can be omitted as it is irrelevant now anyway, and huge chunks of those shows were taken up by repeats of previous PPV matches anyway.

    • RabidHeat says:

      Oh, and hopefully the pre-show matches are short enough to fit on their respective night’s discs as extras.

      • David says:

        I haven’t watched the show and I honestly don’t plan to anytime soon. But I looked on the Network and based on the length Night 1 was a little less than 3 hrs (2 hrs 58 minutes to be exact) and Night 2 was 3 hrs 25 minutes.

        Based on these lengths plus I’m sure they will edit out references like promotional material, etc. I think if there won’t be any extras on the DVD and the kick-off matches and some other extras like the promos will be Blu-ray exclusive because the pre-order lisings have the DVD and Blu-ray as 2 Discs – so each night will be on its own disc and as we have seen events that go 3 hrs and more WWE don’t include the kick-off matches. Plus with no HOF and no reason to include a RAW episode I think they will just leave this a standard barebones 2 DVD set.

        • RabidHeat says:

          “Amazon’s U.S. listing and an internal schedule lists the DVD as a 2-disc set, however the UK and Australian listings for the DVD specify it to be a 3-disc set which is the more likely scenario given the speculated runtimes of the events including the Kickoff Show content.”

          ^ ^ From the very article that you’re commenting on.

          Also, they often go over three hours by up to 25 minutes or so and just compress the footage slightly; both pre-show matches were short enough to be squeezed onto Disc 1 after the Night One show.

  5. Peter says:

    That WM 36 artwork is cool, just like the intro was and the pirate logo. Man, the show could have been probably the most visually stunning show WWE has ever done, with the pirate ship and all. And the card was damn good too.

    Still, I have to say although it by no means can substitute a WM in an arena with a crowd, the effort everyone put into their matches yesterday was very impressive. Like they really, really busted their asses, no one phoned it in just because it’s in the performance center. Actually I think they tried that much harder, because they knew the spectacle and the crowd aren’t there to help them.

    And hopefully, this will make many fans appreciate what we get from WWE more. Because fans have really grown accustomed to complaining in the past few years and I have zero doubt they would complain about this WM too. About part-timers, old guys, booking, whatever. Well, I think right now, every single one of us would kill to experience the WM WWE had planned for us in the stadium and we would be happy with it.

    I’m looking forward to the Blu-ray, I will buy it and hopefully WWE will include some meaty extras to boot.

  6. RabidHeat says:

    Oh, so Shawn and Bret are on the WMXV spine? Well, of course, but it’s totally understandable that they could make that mistake again, SIX YEARS LATER.

    * smh *

    • LP1 says:

      Seriously. And the last Mania XV DVD release that had the messed up Bret-Shawn spine, also had a completely different cover than this one. That means somebody had to copy and paste the spine from the last release and merge it with the new cover. That’s incompetence on a whole new level. Is this really that hard?

  7. Cleavy says:

    the disc graphics on the WMX7 aren’t as good as the original

  8. Anonymous says:

    Funny that Wrestlemania 2000 wasn’t included due to being a poor show when it has two good matches on it (Triangle Ladder, Benoit vs. Y2J vs. Angle), which is more than XV can claim to have.

    • Danny says:

      Wrestlemania 15 was definitely a worse show than Wrestlemania 2000. In fact, I don’t consider Wrestlemania 2000 to be a bad show at all. The ladder match was great and it had a couple of other fun matches as well.

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

    If there’s one performer that deserves a career overview spanning over several episodes in the form of a limited series event, is the Deadman. We finally getting the proper (assumingly) documentary on The Undertaker..let’s hope WWE will surprise us all and put this out on a deserving 3-discs blu-ray too.

  10. BAS says:

    Due to the lack of the traditional activites that coincide with WrestleMania, I wouldn’t be surprised if the matches that were scheduled for Takeover Tampa that are now on NXT from April 1st through the 8th are the extra features since there’s obviously not going to be much of a Raw after WrestleMania.

    Granted, this would require making it a 4 Disc DVD/3 Disc Blu Ray, which probably rules this possibility out since they haven’t went all out on their video releases for a long time now, but I also feel this solution makes sense since a WrestleMania release never truly goes without bonus features.

    • BAS says:

      Now that I see that the 2 nights of WrestleMania is 3 hours each, I guess they can obviously still stick with the usual 3 and 2 discs. Or you can make both DVD and Blu Ray 3 discs that way the NXT Takeover matches, plus the kickoff matches can be included.

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

    The spine of XV is terrible..that artwork is suitable for todays “cut in huge blocks over-scripted” product only imo.

    Btw.: the Silvervision original edition has this annoying locked intro of the show..before it gets to the menu..totally unable to skip it, fast forward or press MENU to avoid it.. really a pain in the, you know.. Does the US original and/or this new re-release suffer from that same annoying unwanted “feature”?

    Too bad they left out any extras from the original Silvervision release. It makes the Austin/Rock match even greater listening to their “analyses” respectively, obviously in charachter. 😉

    But.. just great for collectors, who never got to get these 4 Great Ones on DVD. 😉

    • Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Life says:

      Just to clarify: I love that intro in XV.. I just like to settle with it one time after Boyz II Men. 😉

    • Timothy Thorpe says:

      I can clarify that the locked intro is on the original of 15. It’s almost as annoying as here in the states we had the armed forces ad as part of the intro in late 2009 early 2010.

      • Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Life says:

        Horrible bs with locked content, especially when the same content appears later. I don’t remember any other WWE releases have it. but some of my TNA dvd’s have that too.. and those intros are really not that great, less so having them in a double up doze. -lol-

  12. Paul says:

    I like that Fremantle are delving into the archives and they’ve chosen some cracking events. There’s a big thing made about the extras included in these releases. I have the original Silvervision releases of 17, 18 and 19 along with the Tagged Classic 15. Is there anything significantly new in the extras of the new releases to make it worth replacing my originals?

    • Daniel Bee says:

      As I understand it, their content is exactly the same as the original Silver Vision releases – extras and unedited footage intact. WM15 may be different in terms of extras, perhaps somebody else reading this can confirm. 🙂

      • Julian Callan says:

        I have them and can confirm there are no extras whatsoever on the 15 DVD!

        • David says:

          That is a bit surprising, but in a way not really since looking back this was the first DVD WWF put out and I remember the extras they had at that time were written wrestler biographies, seperate Rock and Austin commentaries on the main event and few match previews of the matches that aired on the PPV. Not much for extras but neat at the time, especially the alternate commentaries with Rock and Austin.

      • Paul says:

        That’ll save me a few quid then!
