In the running of WrestlingDVDNetwork.com, we have access to an internal schedule that shows the Home Video releases Warner Bros. have on the horizon for the US and Canada.
Recently, we spotted a listing show up here for the WWE Day 1 2022 PPV, which was then picked up by retail sites like Amazon and Target. Now, Royal Rumble 2022 has surfaced on that internal schedule, too:
This means you’re likely to see Royal Rumble 2022 hit US retail sites anytime now, just as Day 1 did.
However, it remains to be seen whether these WWE DVDs will ultimately be pulled from sale — we still haven’t heard anything official that contradicts the cancellation announcement from early December.
All should become clear very soon! We appreciate your patience.
WWE Day 1 2022 will definitely be released to fans in the UK and Europe by Fremantle. The official cover artwork has now been revealed, featuring the stars of the Fatal 5-Way main event: Big E, Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley, and… Brock Lesnar!
We hear this cover was meant to feature the original poster artwork with Roman Reigns, but for obvious reasons this has now been revised.
Below we have the full content listing of the Day 1 DVD, which is to be a single-disc release with a 3-hour runtime, packing in the full PPV event and the Kickoff Show tag match.
Facing the biggest test of his career, Big E puts his WWE Championship on the line against Kevin Owens, Seth Freakin’ Rollins, “The All Mighty” Bobby Lashley, and Brock Lesnar in a Fatal 5-Way Match.
Liv Morgan looks to knock “Big Time Becks” Becky Lynch off her pedestal in a RAW Women’s Championship Match. The Usos and The New Day reignite their rivalry for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships. The Hollywood A-Lister and The Iconoclast go head-to-head when The Miz battles Edge in one-on-one competition. RK-Bro tries to continue their RAW Tag Team Championship reign when they go up against The Street Profits.
Plus more! Kick Off The New Year With WWE Day 1!

Curious what DVDs All Elite Wrestling have released so far?
Head over to our new AEW DVD list page, which we’ll keep up to date when new titles emerge. On there with the list is the release order for the DVDs (not quite as you’d expect) and photos.

i really hope they keep dvds going, i dont have the network since it went to the PEAAAACOCK last year, i am a big collector have been since 2002.
i like collecting the dvds and vhs when i can so i hope WB keeps it going
They really need to continue to release these because streaming isn’t that great for everyone.
that and seams like every month there taking stuff off old material
The thing I can’t shake in my mind is, remember when they said PPVs only, but then still released some non-PPV stuff? They seem to have a certain amount of difficulty in fully pulling the plug on home video.
There was a bigger outcry on social media than I expected; maybe they they thought “well, let’s see how Day 1 and the Rumble sell first, given the strong feelings”?
The only sense I can make of the “PPV only” announcement that time was that maybe there were no plans for miscellaneous releases at that time of the announcement and it appeared that PPV was the only releases going forward.
Other than that, I do have to agree that this has been strange. Like I been saying everywhere else, I can only suspect that maybe this is the final year of home video releases, whether that means a few more releases before pulling the plug altogether, or 2023 is technically the year they start with no more releases period. Assuming the US schedule isn’t an error, or something that was announced beforehand and just hasn’t been addressed elsewhere yet.
Just hope that WWE PPV can continue to release on dvd and blurays.
Keeping my fingers crossed for that !
All I can suspect is that these are errors that have yet to be changed, or 2022 will be the final year of home video releases, rather than no more starting this year. Or maybe there’ll be a few more releases at the start of this year before they pull the plug on production later this year.
BAS ,Maybe they are giving people one last chance to see if demand picks up? or maybe they cant stop dvds in the uk with survivor series for contractual reasons and they will stop them in usa when this is resolved would be my guess. it all depends on if the reason for this is A,the return from dvd sales is because the return is nt worth it. or B, it is a strategy of phasing out physical media to concentrate on streaming. we were never told this when this story broke…The uk suppliers claim they are as in the dark as everyone else.
Never thought of it that way, but that could be possible too and does make sense. The contractual reasons I can see being it, considering Day 1 and Royal Rumble were announced for you guys before the announcement of no more releases in region 1 came about.
I know you guys tend to get releases we don’t, but I know WWE themselves has the say on your releases too. If our days of releases are numbered, it may be a matter of time before everywhere else gets that too, assuming that’s what you mean by “in the dark,” because of the uncertainty of the announcement.
Hopefully ”WARNER BROS.” will be able to release these in the U.S. I certainly don’t like the ”DAY 1′ cover as they should have had BIG E. holding the title. But i’ll still get this and the ”ROYAL RUMBLE” whether they”re United States or United Kingdom releases. Keeping my fingers crossed for the U.S release.
Big E not front and centre or even holding his belt on the cover.
I was considering purchasing this event given that could potentially be the second to last DVD ever, but the show was absolutely ruined IMO by Roman’s COVID result.
The Main Event is all about adding Brock Lesnar to it behause Of the COVID Case from Roman. And the Most Important thing is That Brock Is a bigger draw than Big E. It was a lame title Reign like Kofis One. The Day 1 Premium Live Event was a Great Start in a Year with Fans on every Live Event. The Show was only 3 Hours and a fun Event. For me Brock as a babyface is so enjoyable. Look at the RAW Promo from this monday. Absolutely Great.
I understand why Brock is front and centre, but if they weren’t going for a spoiler cover showing Lesnar holding the title, they could have at least used a photo defending champion Big E holding it.
They Used the advertising Photo on the Screen during the Live Event.
kOFI TITle reign may have been “lame” but was superiour to big Es for two reasons. 1, The chase when Kofi was trying to become champion was excellent watch elimination chamber 2019 or fastlane 2019 and the match where he won it at that years mania was excellent. 2, despite people losing interest after that his defences were of a high match quality…he would be an ideal opponement for a heal roman even now
The Story from Kofi to became WWE Champion was Great but thats not count as a Title Reign. So for me his reign begins After he Beat Daniel Bryan and After That all of his Matches were Not exciting at all because everytime the Same pace and moves. Dont forget His Pancake entrance. 2014 and 2019 the Road to WM was Special with Bryan and Kofi but was That fan Power worth for it? Bryan was injured in May and Kofi was a Champion with No highs from may to Oct in 2019. I still had prefer Batista as Champ in 2014 and Bryan still as heel Champ in 2019.
