WWE 'The True Story of Royal Rumble' DVD & Blu-ray - Up For Pre-Order

Almost 1 year ago we reported that WWE had a new Royal Rumble-themed documentary in the works titled “The True Story of Royal Rumble”, a follow up to “The True Story of WrestleMania”.

You can now consider it 100% official – the DVD and Blu-ray just went live to pre-order:

WWE: True Story of Royal Rumble [DVD]
WWE: True Story of Royal Rumble [Blu-ray]

The new listings confirm the release date to the United States of December 6th, 2016, and early indications suggest that “The True Story of Royal Rumble” will hit the UK first, one day before.

Now it’s on the schedule, look out for content details as soon as we receive them!

WrestlingDVDNetwork.com can now also exclusively reveal the cover artwork planned for the WWE Home Video release of last Sunday’s Battleground 2016 PPV!

The DVD will be released in August, while the UK will get a Blu-ray edition in September.

Its cover features a shot of Dean Ambrose at the closing of the event, who was of course the victor in the WWE Championship Triple Threat Match against Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins.

    I love wrestling and only buy the dvds/blurays. I haven’t watched raw or smackdown in over 4 years. Spoiler covers suck but I already knew Ambrose won.it really only effects things when years have passed by and you feel like watching an old DVD and can’t remember the results.

  2. Shane F. says:

    I hope they add the WWE Championship Match between Kurt Angle & Chris Benoit from Royal Rumble 2003. One of the best title and technical matches I’ve ever seen!

    The Ladder Match between Chris Jericho and Chris Benoit from Royal Rumble 2001 need to be on the dvd/bluray as well

  3. Captain Melvin Seahorse says:

    Is there a reason the WWE insists on spoiling PPV DVDs with these covers ruining the outcome of the main event?

    • Bill says:

      Dude, every wrestling fan knows how it ended, so shut it

      • Leon says:

        Not every wrestling fan has watched the ppv yet, crackhead.

        • David says:

          If you’re a wrestling fan then you would know the results by watching RAW, SD and other programs. There is NO WAY a WRESTLING FAN follows WWE just by their DVD collection. These PPV DVDs aren’t targeted towards casuals, only hardcore fans.

          • AD Degreez says:

            Exactly everyone should know who won, but in all honesty “spoiler” covers like this just look crap like a pick with the event name slapped on. Extreme rules was done well but I prefer the poster or a new graphic not just a pic like this

          • Leon says:

            Not everyone around the world is up to date with the programming. Unlike you, some of us actually have lives as well as jobs. DVDs are for all wrestling fans, not just the hardcore fans. Dunno where u get your theory that everyone should know the results of a ppv as quick as u do.

            So what’s the results for WrestleMania 36 then? Who won the world title? Tell me now.

  4. Andy Ace R says:

    The title of the dvd is a hypocritical one inteself if they don’t mention Chris Benoit being the 2nd man in history to enter and win the 2004 Royal Rumble match. Super curious to see how they explain that fact!

    • RabidHeat says:

      It’s not rocket science, they’ll just not discuss the 2004 Rumble. Like they didn’t discuss HBK’s ‘Mania XX match on his Mr. WrestleMania DVD. So it’s hypocritical, so what? Loads of WWE DVDs are hypocritical.

    • SCSA says:

      You mean the 2nd man in history to enter as no1 & winning!

  5. Timothy Thorpe says:

    I think only three Rumble matches will be shown in full: 1988, 1992 and 1995. Any others would be shown only when the winner enters the match. I can’t wait for the content reveal.

    • Bruno says:

      I wouldn’t mind if they ended up showing the 1990 Royal Rumble in its full unless they still wanna avoid showing anything with Hogan.

  6. Nicolas Hébert says:

    December 6th!!! Can’t wait!!! I love the Blu-Ray “The True Story of Wrestlemania” so I can’t wait for the history and inside from my favorite PPV the Royal Rumble.

    • SCSA says:

      I agree with you! However I just read that it’ll only be a Blu-Ray of 3hrs & 1minute! 🙁

      That sucks!!! If we wanna see more classical matches (including actual Rumble matches) then it must be at least 6-8hrs long!!!

      • ECW08Rulez says:

        Why stop there? I say go for a 6 disc box set! Every Rumble ever! Otherwise no buy for me. I’m THAT serious about not buying something interesting because of the runtime

        • SCSA says:

          TRUE!!! However if it manages to include matches/docs such as these, then I’ll most probably buy it;

          More talk on Austin’s wins, VinMan winning Rumble99, 2004 winner-Benoit talk, Undertaker win talk-2007

          Matches of; 1992 Royal Rumble match, 95 Rumble match would also be fun to have on this set! Also Hart Foundation- Bret & Owen Vs The Quebecers- Tag Titles-(should hav been on Owen Hart set), Shawn vs Undertaker in casket match-rr98, Shamrock vs Gunn-Ic title-Submission match-rr99, Y2J vs Benoit-IC Ladder match-RR01 & more!

  7. Mark Markson says:

    I haven’t seen Battleground yet, so I’m not exactly a fan of this cover. 🙁

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      SMH WHY SMH JUST WHY!!!! in 2016 why!!!!!

      • Mark Markson says:

        I live in a country where Raw and Smackdown is not shown on TV, so I watch everything on the network. I’d like to see the build up to the PPVS, so I am about a month behind on things. WWE doesn’t upload Raw and Smackdown to the network until about a month after it has aired on TV.

        • Jeff Copeland says:

          youtube ? you can watch or find episodes of raw or smackdown there if you look

          • Mark Markson says:

            Sure, but I prefer to watch it through the network. Where I know the picture quality and sound is good. When it comes to illegal uploads of Raw, PPVs etc. picture quality varies a lot. But I hope one day WWE will upload Raw and Smackdown to the network sooner. Like maybe a few days after it has been on TV.

  8. The first and only time Konnor will be on a DVD Cover

  9. John says:

    I will pass on True Story of Royal Rumble and that is a terrible spoiler cover for Battleground

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      i have never understood peoples weird fetish for covers and if there good or not smh. i just don’t get it.

      its just a cover yet every single dvd or bluray people like to complain about it SHRUGS if you hate it thats fine but dont spam 100 things on here on why it sucks

      • me says:

        aesthetic appeal is the main reason…you want something that looks cool to put on your shelf

        • Indyfan says:

          Most people store them on a shelf so that the edge is all you see. Therefore the cover is irrelevant as far as looking appealing on a shelf

    • Todd Cash says:

      You don’t like anything do you…
