This August, in addition to airing the summer spectacular live on Pay-Per-View, WWE is set to release a brand new, sizzlin’ hot DVD collection titled “30 Years of SummerSlam”.
Known as “The Biggest Party of the Summer” for three decades, SummerSlam is where champions are crowned, dream matches are created, and rivalries come to an explosive end. Now, relive the greatest matches & moments from the illustrious history of SummerSlam!
As the above preliminary synopsis suggests WrestlingDVDNetwork.com can confirm that the current plan is to present this one as a compilation set rather than a documentary (or a countdown like last year’s “30 Years of Survivor Series” DVD) so that means there’s room for more matches!
Expect to see the usual 3-disc set featuring in the region of 15-20 full-length matches and moments; a “Best of” format beginning with the inaugural SummerSlam PPV in 1988 and journeying through to the present day. The selected content will likely be coupled with host segments introducing the bouts.
“30 Years of SummerSlam” has now been scheduled for release to fans in the UK on August 27th, 2018 and can already be pre-ordered here on Amazon.co.uk. We’ll follow up with release dates for United States, Canada and Australia as we receive them.
WWE just gave us all a first glimpse of potential DVDs under consideration for 2019!
This was done so in the form of a new “Fan Council” survey issued to fans earlier today. This survey asked for feedback on how many DVDs and Blu-rays (WWE or non-WWE) the respondent has purchased in the past 2 years, whether or not the WWE Network has an effect on what they purchase on Home Video, and gauged interest in this list of nearly 30 different titles:
Asuka: Empress of Tomorrow
The Best of Charlotte Flair
John Cena: The Face that Runs the Place
John Cena (Match Comp)
The Best of Alexa Bliss
Shinsuke Nakamura – Rock Star
The Best of Roman Reigns

It’s WrestleMania 34 release day in the UK!
And not only is WrestleMania 34 in stores now as a standard DVD or Blu-ray, fans in the UK are being treated to an exclusive 4-disc version of the DVD that includes an NXT TakeOver: New Orleans bonus disc that has never been released elsewhere. ASDA stores are stocking this title as a Retail Exclusive and we hear that it is a limited run with only 3000 copies produced.
Can’t make it to a store? You can grab the NXT DVD bonus online — WWEDVD.co.uk are supplying it as an Online Exclusive and they are doing so with both the 3-disc DVD and the 2-disc Blu-ray editions of WrestleMania 34, so this is the only way to get hold of the bonus with the Blu-ray.
To clarify, we recently pictured the UK WM34 Digipak DVD which had “4 DISC SET” printed on the front cover. This is the ASDA Retail Exclusive which specifically refers to the release being a 4-disc set, whereas the Online Exclusive is labelled a “3 DISC SET” and has a sticker highlighting the inclusion of NXT TakeOver. Both however contain the bonus and the same number of discs.
Also officially released today to UK fans is a WrestleMania 34 DVD with Sainsbury’s exclusive cover artwork. It may look familiar because this is the same artwork recently found in the United States on the Best Buy Exclusive Blu-ray. We have a first look at the UK’s version below:
Get your hands on the WWE WRESTLEMANIA 34 DVD or Blu-ray…
– UK/Europe: RIGHT NOW! Grab the WrestleMania DVD or Blu-ray now via Amazon.co.uk.
– USA: RIGHT NOW! Get WrestleMania on DVD or Blu-ray right now here on Amazon.com.
– Australia: RIGHT NOW! Grab your WrestleMania DVD (Blu-ray soon) at Madman.com.au.
Speaking of WrestleMania 34, when the ‘Mania DVD hit the United States last month the DVD cover had a sticker advertising a free Digital Bonus: the Hall of Fame 2018 ceremony. As we all know the Hall of Fame was not included in the Home Video content this year.
Unfortunately it appears that the Hall of Fame was not included a bonus either because fans who have purchased the DVD report that the code only gives digital access to WrestleMania itself. In error the Hall of Fame simply wasn’t included. This appears to be a Warner Bros. related issue that is widespread, so we would encourage you to reach out to them if the problem has affected you.
In one of our latest updates we reported that a DVD release of the “Greatest Royal Rumble” event was back on after initially it looked like such plans had been scrapped. Not only was it re-scheduled it also looks to be expanded as there’s talk of a documentary feature being included with the PPV.
WWE Home Video UK have since confirmed that they will be releasing the DVD on November 12th, 2018. This is expected to be a worldwide offering but we should have confirmation soon.
