Has the planned cover artwork for the WrestleMania 34 DVD already been revealed?
Yes and no.
Over the weekend the first official sighting of artwork for the release surfaced online – but this was not a “leak” as some are suggesting; this was an intentional upload to Best Buy’s website (link).
Reason being because on the road to WrestleMania 34 Best Buy have begun promoting a version that will be exclusive to them. WrestlingDVDNetwork.com has learned that Best Buy will be offering a WrestleMania 34 Blu-ray featuring the exclusive cover artwork you see below.
We can confirm that this artwork is legit and as of right now will appear on the store exclusive, however this will NOT be the main DVD and Blu-ray cover for this year’s WrestleMania as that will likely not finalize until the event concludes in April.
Note that the Blu-ray as a whole is not exclusive to Best Buy and will see a wide release in the United States, only the alternate artwork is. As things stand here are the three editions on the way:
- WrestleMania 34 [DVD]
- WrestleMania 34 [Blu-ray]
- WrestleMania 34 [Blu-ray, Best Buy Exclusive Artwork]
Speaking of store exclusives, we have learned that another “alternate” version of the WM34 DVD is being prepped for a UK retail outlet with details still to be confirmed.
The past couple of years have also seen WrestleMania released in limited edition Steelbook Blu-ray packaging but unfortunately those editions were dropped in 2018.
Here’s the new artwork – once again the plan is to release this as a Best Buy exclusive:
WWE heads to New Orleans for its biggest show of the year, WrestleMania! Epic rivalries come to a head as WWE Superstars compete to add their names to the list of WrestleMania legends.
Featuring Ronda Rousey, John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Triple H, AJ Styles, Roman Reigns, Undertaker and many more!
WrestleMania 34 takes place on Sunday, 8th April 2018
In our last update we revealed the cover artwork for WWE’s new “Twist of Fate: The Best of the Hardy Boyz” DVD:
It turns out the special alternate artwork featuring the close-up Matt and Jeff Hardy ‘split’ design will also be an exclusive to Best Buy, so with the addition of WrestleMania 34 the retailer will be offering not one but two WWE DVD artwork variants in the month of May.
As mentioned, fans in the UK will be treated to both versions of the Hardy Boyz artwork by way of a reversible sleeve. This will feature the ‘split’ design, shown again below, as the front cover.

More indications that we won’t see seeing the “Shane McMahon’s Craziest Matches” DVD any time soon as HMV UK has switched the release date from June 11th, 2018 to January 1st, 2021!
It is our understanding that the site typically switches release dates to a distant time in this manner when the release status of said DVD is no longer known, and that appears to be the case here.
As soon as we hear what is replacing the Shane O’Mac DVD we’ll let you know.
The latest WWE DVDs to hit stores this month are the “Ultimate Superstars Collection” and the “Essential WWE Collection” which bundle together a set of must-own documentaries from the past including the likes of “The True Story of WrestleMania”, “The History of WWE”, “McMahon”, and “Breaking The Code: Behind The Walls of Chris Jericho”.
