Following on from our exclusive news yesterday concerning the Randy Savage Unreleased project in the works for 2018, WrestlingDVDNetwork.com has received the next Home Video schedule draft which lists everything WWE has on the way from now through to the end of May!
It confirms the planned release dates for a new Hardy Boyz DVD, the aforementioned “Randy Savage Unreleased” DVD, and perhaps the biggest one of them all; WrestleMania 34 which as of this moment will be produced on both DVD and Blu-ray formats. Below you can check out updated schedules for the United States and the United Kingdom.
“Twist of Fate: The Best of the Hardy Boyz” will be the name given to the 2018 Hardy Boyz DVD which suggests a match compilation format, therefore we expect the interview footage WWE recently filmed with them to appear in between selected bouts and perhaps also in a Hardy Boyz-themed documentary on the WWE Network in the coming months, likely a “WWE 24” special.

The line-up of titles for the United Kingdom follows much the same pattern, but also with the additions of the Sasha Banks and Bayley “Iconic Matches” DVDs on the way later this month.
Looking specifically at the Superstar/feature compilation 3-disc DVD sets found on the two lists, in most cases fans in the UK will actually receive them one day before the counterpart US release date. That will be the case for “RAW 25th Anniversary”, “Twist of Fate: The Best of the Hardy Boyz”, and “Randy Savage Unreleased: The Unseen Matches of the Macho Man”.

Heads up, after a long delay waiting for Amazon to list all of the upcoming 2018 WWE DVDs a few more titles have surfaced on the retail site including “Best of NXT 2017”.
Some tiles are still missing (we count 4 scheduled DVDs not found with an active listing at this time) but the following can now be accessed and pre-order opportunities are expected soon.
This applies only to the US Amazon affected by the issue since the new year.
- 4 Film Favorites: Ultimate Superstars Collection
- 4 Film Favorites: Essential WWE Collection
- Best of NXT 2017 DVD
The first 2018 release from Kayfabe Commentaries is the “Breaking Kayfabe: Vince Russo” DVD which was put out this week and also available to stream instantly or download.
The premise of the “Breaking Kayfabe” series is discussions on the personal lives of the guests rather than any wrestling exploits, where other shoot interviews naturally place their focus. Check out a preview of what to expect in the clip below and get your copy at KayfabeCommentaries.com.

Now if we could just get unreleased DVD sets for:
that first picture is hilarious.
I wish WWE would release documemtary sets Vader,Kevin Nash,Dustin Runnels/Goldust, Paul Orndorff, a new Dusty Rhodes set and a Terry Funk set. Match Comps on NWA/WCW tag teams, The New Age Outlaws and The Rock (a new one). Also it would be cool to focus on certain territory’s like Smokey Mountain, Championship Wrestling from Florida and Stampede Championship Wrestling. There’s so much more material than what WWE is giving us fans who enjoy educational documentarys on the past.
maybe aside from an “Unreleased” set, what footage featuring The Rock is there that wasn’t already released before?
Lol, yeah. The one thing I’m NOT going to complain about is the lack of another Rock DVD.
But yet you’d rather see another HBK set? smh!
Where did I say I would “rather see another HBK set”? Please do tell. Try and back it up with a quote from me too; I dare you…
…can’t, can you? Because I didn’t say it.
Summary: Don’t make s*** up.
I never implied you did, that’s a question I asked you and yet you couldn’t answer if so that tells me you’d be all for a hbk dvd when he’s already had countless sets.
I absolutely wouldn’t be “all for” that, so that shows how great you are at deduction, doesn’t it? Making stuff up to support your own conclusions yet again.
so you’d rather see another overrated HBK dvd but not a rock dvd even if it’s unreleased matches? dmh!
No! I just said I don’t want another HBK DVD either. Can you not read?
IT DOESNT MATTER WHAT YOU WANT!
I’ll say it, WE NEED ANOTHER HBK DVD he’s the greatest in ring performer of all time.
I love The Rock, but I don’t think he needs another set. A new Shawn Michaels DVD makes more sense. He has wrestled more years than The Rock, and there are more unreleased Shawn matches.
Rock is a bigger star and isn’t overrated like HBK is. Shawn already has countless dvd sets. He don’t need another one.
If it’s a set with unreleased Shawn matches, I’d say it’s a good idea. I’m sure such a set will sell well.
A Kevin Nash dvd? Wtf?!?!
Who wants to watch Nash do the same 4 moves in every match? That would be a boring dvd to make. I’d rather watch paint dry.
I agree with a WCW Unreleased set and an Andre DVD documentary I am also waiting for documentary DVDs for Undertaker Lex Luger and Vader
I honestly don’t think Lex deserves a 3 disc set, to be honest. Most pro wrestlers in the biz don’t have a good thing to say about him, merely that he was an ex-football guy who came in to make a quick buck in wrestling, like Goldberg but without the great initial booking and prescence. His WWF push was a total failure, he didn’t really ever truly connect with the fans wherever he was, and he was nothing in the ring without a stellar opponent who could carry him. The business didn’t feel any impact from his absence from 2002 onwards. Outside of his depressing stories about his paralysis and Elizabeth dying from a drug overdose in his house, I’m not sure how they’d flesh out an interesting documentary.
The other doc ideas, I agree with.
I’d rather hear/listen to the rise and fall of luger over any of today’s stars. there’s always something interesting especially he’s a former football player who had the million dollar body look then it all came crashing down on him with alcohol and drug abuse. He may not have been a ring technician but he certainly made a name for himself in the biz and had stellar matches.
You were doing so well up until the point right at the end where you actually stated that Lex Luger had “stellar” matches. You and I must have vastly different standards with regard to what constitutes “stellar”.
And while I admit that he did have some impressive matches in his early WCW says, they were always with ring generals who could carry a pillow to a decent main event.
I also don’t understand why any of “today’s stars” would have “rise and fall” dvds when their careers in WWE are still ongoing.
I think you just have a big ego and aren’t willing to give the guy where credit is due. Before he began phoning in his performances in 1998, luger busted his ass to have good or decent matches whether in WCW or the WWF.
I don’t see how my opinion of a guy’s wrestling ability would have anything to do with ego, especially when the general consensus most places you look and most shoot interviews you listen to is that he didn’t “bust his ass” at all. If you like him that’s fine, and unlike you I won’t accuse you of having a “big ego” for doing so.
The guy busted his ass to have good matches in his WWF run and first WCW/NWA run. Give credit where credit is due.
He was extremely popular, was a part of the end of the first real boom period in wrestling, coming into his own as main eventer in the late 80’s, and remained a top atraction through the next boom period in the mid to late 90’s. He is not as well regarded as many of his comtemporaries, either in the ring or on the mic, but unlike other wrestlers who have been criticized in the same way (guys like Brutus Beefcake, Ultimate Warrior, Sid Justice, etc) he not only was a top attraction and main event star but he maintained that status for a decade, between two companies. He’s pretty far down on my list of all time favs, but his longevity as a top star deserves some props.
It’s fine if you think that, I just think you keep exaggerating his success. “Extremely” is a big word to use to describe his popularity. “Extremely” would imply he is one of the most popular superstars of all time such as Hogan, Rock or Austin. He certainly wasn’t ever “extremely popular” in WWF; if anything he bombed because he wasn’t anywhere near as popular as Vince hoped. And he spent most of the late 90s in WCW as a heel. So I guess you’re referring to his time in WCW in the very late 80s/early 90s, which is fine, but even then … “extremely popular”? Well, I just disagree.
The guy was a success whether you like it or not. He has name value and has cemented his place in wrestling history. When people hear the name “lex luger”, they immediately know who he is. He was extremely successful in WCW. His WWF run wasn’t a total failure, he was cheered loudly when he became hogan’s replacement as the next american hero. Fans cheered him on when he slammed Yokozuna, when he “saved” Hart and Savage from Crush and Yokozuna or when he nearly won the intercontinental title from Diesel.
When I hear the name Lex Luger the first things that come to my mind is Elizabeth dying in his house and seeing him on the TV show Hardcore Pawn trying to sell his robes.
Lex Luger never wore robes, just boots and tights.
You’re actually incorrect, he did wear robes. There was even a WCW Galoob action figure of him in his entrance robe. Sorry to break it to you.
I never saw him wear robes regularly on TV so an action figure with him wearing a robe isn’t saying much.
I saw an action figure of bret hart with guns. Did u ever see him bring guns to the ring?
Go watch late 80s NWA. He wore them all the time.
“never saw him wear robes regularly”
So he did wear them then? And the Bret figure was from a “What If?” concept series where Bret was reimagined as a gangster, whereas the Lex figure was based on an actual ring attire. Even you must realise that is not the same thing…
May 2018 is the biggest month in a while
did anyone find it weird most the ppvs were double packs minus the big 4, why wasnt TLC/ Clash released together?
Agree. Why those got single releases makes no sense. Seems random
Not random. They release PPVs in order. Survivor Series took place in between TLC and Clash Of Champions. Wouldn’t make sense to have a double pack with a PPV in the middle missing.
They could have waited to continue with the double pack theme, which throws a wrench in things when events outside of the big 4 get single releases. I know you are good friends with HHH. Do you think you can talk to him about this? Maybe at least hit me with some of those stats I know you like to drop. When did Papa Shango debut?
Sarcasm aside, what do you mean by they could have waited? Clash was the only PPV in between Survivor Series and Royal Rumble. There was no other PPV to pack it with.
LP1- TNA went that not making sense route with a double pack in 2010. Victory Road (July ppv) & No Surrender (September ppv) were the double pack & Hardcore Justice (August ppv) was a stand alone release. Granted the only reason I can think of why Hardcore Justice was a stand alone, it was an ECW reunion-style show.
Well yeah, Hardcore Justice 2010 wasn’t really storyline canon, so it did make sense.
And still no Andre the giant dvd set! What a disappointment?
I read online yesterday that Andres HBO documentary is finally coming out this spring so maybe they will eventually release a set on him. Who knows
Thats correct, WWF/WWE only released a single disc of his greatest matches only.
I quite like the documentary portion about Andre on ‘True Giants’. That’s enough for me, personally. All respect to Andre, a great human being and talent, but I don’t need 2 or 3 discs of his matches when in-ring ability wasn’t his forte.
I wish the WWE would put out a WCW unreleased set.
Uhh , did they forget that was the name of the last Hardy Boyz dvd ten years ago ?
You mention Wrestlemania 34 making it to Blu Ray but, dare I ask, will any of these others make it?
I hope the WWE Royal Rumble 2018 gets a Blu-ray release
It does in the UK. Not sure about the rest of the world.
The Rumble will be released on Blu-ray to UK/Europe but sadly looks to be DVD-only everywhere else.
Why no Booker T. dvd release? I assumed there would be one by now since they released a special on him on the network. (I thought they would just release that on dvd with some booker matches thrown in.)
It also seems the releases are not as exciting as they have been in past years. Could it be they are just not investing as much into dvd projects due to focusing more on the network?
Great job on here!
it would be great to have a booker t dvd set.I agree with you about the selections,I don’t really care for NXT or The Hardy Boys.I Was hoping for WCW Unreleased Matches,Best of the Ruthless Aggresion Era,A New Divas DVD,or a documentary on Goldbergs original wcw/WWE Run and His Comeback Run.It Would Be Nice TO have his WWE Network documentary on dvd
I like the way you think. I’d also throw in a volume 2 of Legends of Mid South Wrestling but with matches only.
