  6. SRB says:

    Mark! They stole your old school covers idea! Looks like Coliseum Video has returned. What are the extras? Bret Hart vs. Dino Bravo?

    • Daniel Bee says:

      To me the design of this seems familiar because of that fan made Wrestlemania 28 PPV poster that made the rounds on the web, like on Reddit and places like that. I think there was another too with the “vintage” look.

  7. nightmare says:

    Also I really like the cover alot it reminds me of old school wrestling show that they hold at gyms or school very cool idea and has to be one of the best cover so far this year.

  8. nightmare says:

    This one I will buy because of all the different matches on it I get the blu ray for sure .

  9. m.blier says:

    the cm punk vs ryback match from hell in a cell would be a nice last minute addition to this set.night of champions john cena vs cm punk has to be a match of the year candidate should be on this list.

  10. John says:

    This cover has to be the 2nd best cover they ever produced behind the Attitude Era cover!

  11. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    I thought last years cover was really good, but I think this one is better by far. Another great cover. Looking forward to getting some of those PPV matches in Blu-ray finally.

  12. Anonymous says:

    Look at the bottom you can see “Featuring Brock Lesnar” that pretty much confirms either Cena or HHH match. Due to Cena match having blood in it I think it will be the HHH match.

    Looks cool like a old school Coliesum video cover

  14. Anonymous says:

    Why don’t they wait until March to release the Blu-Ray & DVD? That way, they can include matches from the whole year.

    The best PPV matches of 2011 only contained matches up to October because it was released too early.

  15. insanetombstone96 says:

    I never buy ppv dvd’s so this is a must buy for me!

  16. Anonymous says:

    Awesome cover, got a real main event feel to it. As far as matches go I can imagine them putting the hhh v Lesnar match from Summerslam to showcase that pay per view as the other main event matches failed to deliver. The Miz v Mysterio was a little gem as well I anticipate that being on there. As other matches go I hope they include:

    Daniel Bryan v Sheamus – 2 out of three falls
    World Heavyweight Title fatal four way from Over the Limit
    Sheamus v Big Show – Hell In a Cell (He’s on there Somewhere)
    Smackdown Money in the Bank Ladder Match
    Smackdown Elimination Chamber Match
    Punk v Ziggler – Royal Rumble
    Punk v Jericho – Extreme Rules
    Christian v Cody Rhodes – No Way Out
    Triple Threat Divas Match from Hell in a Cell (There has to be one)

    great cover. i will now buy, might have skipped if the cover artwork sucked, but this is awesome, good job

  18. Brahmabull32 says:

    Dont understand why WWE still promotes Cena vs Rock as “Once in a Lifetime”.
    We know WWE is planning to repeat this Match.

    • Dave says:

      Those are dirtsheet rumors like always. So what if they’re planning another match?! If WWE could still make money on a rematch then they would stupid not to. Of course smarks are going to whine like always but other fans would probably love to see a rematch. WM28 was the highest bought WM in history thanks to Rock vs Cena.

      Its like how they advertised Wm25 as the “25th anniversary” which it wasn’t but the 24th…it’s all marketing.


  20. john peterson says:

    Sweet cover.Can’t wait to see the Bryan and Punk match from MITB on blu ray.plus hoping they put Sheamus and Bryan and Punk vs Jericho from Extreme Rules along with Punk and Cena from Night Of Champions

  21. Jason H says:

    Excellent cover, it reminds me of the full page and half page ads you’d see in TV Guide to promote Saturday Night’s Main Event specials.

  22. Anonymous says:

    Absolutely fantastic cover.

  23. Harry Faversham says:

    That’s a great cover.

  24. WOIBARRAH says:

    Hoping to see such matches like:
    Sheamus VS Bryan at Extreme Rules
    Lesnar Vs Cena at Extreme Rules
    Punk Vs Jericho at Extreme Rules
    Punk Vs Bryan at Over The Limit
    Punk Vs Mark Henry NO DQ at RAW
    Sheamus Vs Jericho Smackdown
    Ziggler Vs Orton
    and ETC

    • Dave says:

      It states Bryan vs Punk from MitB, so I doubt they will put the one from OTL.

      Also it’s only ppv matches, no RAW or SD. We will probably see those on the best of RAW/SD 2012 release in Jan.

    • Anonymous says:

      Soooooo you want Raw and SmackDown matches on Best PPVs??

  25. indyfan says:

    I don’t care for covers. But this may be the best cover they ever did. ROH did 2 covers like this back in 2006

  26. charlie f says:

    Love the artwork! Im guessing that I will already have some of these matches. But this and the best of raw/smackdown are always some of my favorite releases.

  27. Anonymous says:

    Nice retro cover

  28. Anonymous says:

    Very nice! Reminds me of old boxing fight posters or UFC fight posters. Amazing.

  29. Anonymous says:

    Wow I really like this. I like the fact they included Punk vs Bryan 2 loved that match

  30. Tony Kegger says:

    This is why I don’t buy WrestleMania DVDs or DVDs just because of one match. Why buy the Rock vs. Cena DVD when you can get that match and many others on this DVD?

    • Geolink says:

      Rock vs. Cena includes a documentary, every buildup promo leading to WrestleMania, their matches together (obviously), and a bunch of segments that were cut from the documentary. I’d say Rock vs. Cena is a good buy.

    • Dave says:

      Yea, WWE should have cut Rock/Cena from the WM28 DVD and Rock vs Cena DVDs just because Tony Kegger is buying Best PPV matches 2012 DVD for the match.

    • Vincenzzzzzo says:

      @Tony Kegger

      Using the WrestleMania DVD releases are a bad example because not only do you get cool exclusives, but you also get the entire Hall of Fame induction ceremony with the WrestleMania DVD’s. Definitely worth the purchase in my opinion.

    I agree on Ziggler vs Orton. Great match!!

  32. Ed says:

    defently a nice cover and kind of an old school retro type cover….awesome job guys…keep up great covers like this

  33. Anonymous says:

    Hoping for the MITB Match that Ziggler won, Ziggler vs Orton from NOC, and Brock Lesnar vs Triple H, how bout you guys?

  34. papa_shango5 says:

    I would love to see Jericho vs Ziggler at Summerslam, Punk vs Cena vs Big Show at Summerslam, and just for fun Sheamus vs Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania

  35. Ben says:

    Tremendous Cover! Best in a long time, great work WWE!

  36. Chris Smith says:

    Love it. Never thought I’d see Punk and Bryan sharing a DVD cover with that kind of star power!
