WrestlingDVDNetwork.com can exclusively announce that WrestleMania 16, WrestleMania 20, WrestleMania 22 and WrestleMania 24 will all be back on Home Video in time for this year’s ‘Mania, and those will be joined by the first-ever standalone release of WrestleMania 14 on DVD!
This has been made possible by Fremantle, the UK’s WWE DVD licensee, who after several years of planning (and navigating clearance issues) will be re-releasing these classic WrestleMania events to fans in the UK on April 5th, 2021, just days before the WrestleMania 37 spectacular.
The return of these events to DVD (and in one case, more of a debut) follows the success of last year’s WrestleMania 15, 17, 18 and 19 re-releases, now with another five memorable yet out-of-print WrestleManias officially on sale once again!
Previously missing from Fremantle’s catalogue since taking over the WWE Home Entertainment license in 2013, this exciting milestone means there’s now over 20 years of WrestleMania – WM14 (1998) to WM36 (2020) – available for fans to readily own on DVD, however with one exception: WrestleMania 23, where unfortunately clearance issues still exist.
We’re pleased to report that all of the main show content on the new re-releases will exactly match as they appear on the WWE Network (so no pesky “WWF” edits to ‘Mania 14 or 16, for example) and in some cases, there are various bonus features from the original DVD releases of the time.
