Happy WrestleMania weekend!
As announced by WWE Home Video UK, a 6-disc DVD set on the newly-inducted WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker will be released toward the end of 2022 — “Undertaker: The Complete WrestleMania Collection”.

Every ‘Taker match at ‘Mania in one DVD box set — beginning with WrestleMania 7 in 1991 and journeying through to WrestleMania 36 in 2020, of course covering Undertaker’s legendary Streak, and his matches beyond against the likes of Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns and AJ Styles!
This collection is likely to be exclusive to the UK and Germany (given the recent update that US WWE DVDs in 2022 will be PPV/PLE-only). We should be able to confirm this soon.
We’re pleased to report that this weekend’s WrestleMania 38 extravaganza will see a release on both DVD and Blu-ray formats in the US and Canada, as per usual, which feels like a nice development given the uncertainly at the beginning of the year around whether there would be any WWE DVDs at all produced for the domestic market.
WrestleMania 38 is the next Home Video release on the way in the US. Expect it May 10th.
Pre-order WrestleMania 38 now with Amazon.com.
The UK’s release of WrestleMania 38 won’t be far behind – the UK also gets it on DVD and Blu-ray May 30th. In Australia, it appears there are still no new WWE DVD titles planned for the region; Madman‘s final release was Survivor Series 2021.
UPDATE: While the final list of extras for WrestleMania is still to be confirmed, it was revealed today that The Undertaker’s induction into the WWE Hall of Fame will be included as a bonus feature on the WM38 DVD & Blu-ray! Sounds like WWE are making it a priority to include the speech somewhere in the final contents.
The next new WWE DVD in the UK lands this coming Monday: “Best of 1997: Dawn of the Attitude – 25th Anniversary Edition”.
The cover artwork for this expanded edition has been unveiled (eagle-eyed fans will notice the original release was titled “1997: Dawn of the Attitude…” on the cover artwork, while this re-release is titled “Best of 1997: Dawn of the Attitude…”):
This UK exclusive by Fremantle expands the 3-disc DVD to a 4-disc DVD by adding the Blu-ray exclusive content from the original Blu-ray version onto a new bonus disc.
That means you get almost 1 hour and 30 minutes of extras over the original if you didn’t opt for the Blu-ray before, or if you’re discovering this title for the first time.
Get some Anniversary Attitude on Amazon.co.uk.
Heads up on a WrestleMania-sized WWE DVD sale going on right now in HMV stores across the UK!
More than 30 WrestleMania-related titles are said to be included, with prices reduced to as low as £7.99 each. Head out and grab some new additions for your collection this ‘Mania weekend.
We recently announced WWE has green-lighted a “Ruthless Aggression Vol. 2” DVD for May 2022, following up on the first volume released a couple of years ago.
It’s still happening, but a change has been made.
Originally pencilled in as a 2-disc set, the second Ruthless Aggression DVD will now be a single-disc release. This is because all of the episodes featured (without extras) fit on one disc.

WrestleMania 38 cover art is on Amazon UK and for some stupid reason Undertaker is front and centre in his ring gear, as if he was wrestling on the show. I guess they didn’t wanna pass up one last opportunity to have his face help sell a ‘Mania DVD.
It’s not like he wasn’t on the show. He showed up on both nights. Plus if his Hall Of Fame speech is included as a bonus, then that’s gonna be a big selling point for some people. Makes sense.
He’s in his wrestling gear on the cover. I’m just saying the implication is there to a casual buyer who sees it on a store shelf that he wrestled at the show. I just think Kevin Owens should be there above Austin.
And why the women are mixed up to make it look like Becky fought Ronda and Charlotte fought Bianca, I’ve no idea.
I kinda think they could’ve gotten AJ and Edge on there too.

The Undertaker vs. CM Punk
Las Vegas, Nevada March 30, 2010
Undertaker Vs. CM Punk in Las Vegas on 3/30/2010 would have me sold just based on the fact that I was there for it. But obviously since it’s Undertaker, I’d like it regardless, but that match is a must for me since I’d like to own it for the significance of it being the only time I got to see him in person.
Yeah, he deserves an Unreleased set.
Never gonna happen. That would require WWE to actually put some effort into a non-PPV release. All we’re getting are PPVs and re-releases/updated versions of old releases. You’re more likely to see something like this on the Network, maybe as a hidden gem. But hoping for anything other than that is a waste of energy.
Even if they don’t do a set like that, some of his Unreleased matches should be released.
Hopefully some NXT Stand and Deliver makes it onto the Wrestlemania blu ray.
Unless they restore ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls’ and ‘Ain’t No Grave’ for the WrestleMania 27 match, this Undertaker release is pointless. I know those songs rights must be expensive hence the match never being released unedited, but unless they can finally release it unedited, then it’s really pointless to get a DVD that might realistically be the 21-1 DVD, but an additional 6th disc with his last 5 Mania matches.
I did a little bit of math here since I couldn’t recall the runtime of each Ruthless Agression episode from the second batch episodes and after adding up the total runtime for each one, single disc for this release will work after all since the 5 episodes combined are barely over 3 hours.
I don’t mind importing after recently finding out that import fees for DVDs where I am isn’t all that costly, but I still wish we got Ruthless Aggression Vol. 2 in the States. We already got the first one, so why not the other?
I wished for Undertaker’s speech to be included and it looks like I’m getting my wish after all.
They NEED to do an Unreleased Matches set on the Undertaker. Would sell huge.
Such auspicious news all around! The Undertaker HOF speech a part of the WM 38 set, and a new set released on my birthday! Of course I’ll have to import it but I don’t mind!
We really are at that point where sure, they will release a non-PPV title, with the pre-requisite that there has to be minimal effort involved. Like the ‘Best of 1996’ DVD that featured nothing in between the matches and segments, Ruthless Aggression which will literally just be the episodes from the Network, or this, which will just be the discs from the Coffin box set with an extra coupla discs of post-Streak matches.
I’m not knockin’ it, I know physical media is dying, so why would they put the effort in? But at the same time, it’s just not really anything to get excited about, and yet another slap in the face if you bought that expensive Streak set.
