The planned cover artwork for WWE WrestleMania 28 on DVD and Blu-ray has been revealed in the event program.
Thanks to @HEELMatthew and @InZachWeTrust over on Twitter for passing along this pic!
As we revealed last month these are the two Home Video editions of WrestleMania 28 to be released on May 8th, 2012 in the United States:
WrestleMania 28 [3-Disc DVD]
WrestleMania 28 [2-Disc Blu-ray]
Last year there was another edition released to the US, a 2-Disc DVD set which contained only the broadcast itself and no bonus features. This is not planned for WrestleMania 28.
WrestleMania 28 hits stores on May 8th, just over a month after the event takes place. Amazon is already taking pre-orders for the DVD and Blu-ray editions over here.
In the UK? Silver Vision have WrestleMania 28 available to pre-order, indicating that the European market will get a 3-Disc DVD and an exclusive 3-Disc Blu-ray edition in June.
I’m going to buy Wrestlemania 28 3-Disk DVD Set but still wish there
were a 2-Disk Version dam I thought it was back like that for good.
I just find that a lil messy at the moment how they didn’t decide on
doing that because I liked that and cheaper to for the price.
I think it’s safe to say that all the Little Jimmy’s of Cena fans got got by the Rock beating Cena.
I can’t wait to get this blu-ray. What an event this was. One of the best WrestleMania pay-per-views I’ve seen in years. Top to bottom, awesome card. Can’t wait to watch in HD. (I was in NO WAY going to order the HD pay per view version for an extra $15) lol.
I hope they have that Undertaker/Triple H career retrospective in the extras. That was amazing.
I’m a little dissappointing in the cover. It doesn’t pop but that’s alright I guess.
I hope Brock Lesnar’s return is an extra!
The side of WrestleMania XXVIII definately looks like WrestleMania 23 & WrestleMania XXIV but hopefully will change to a different logo of WrestleMania XXVIII
Former WWE Superstar Dave Bautista (Batista) has arrived in Miami and is awaiting transportation from the WWE, according to the Wrestling Observer. There is no news on whether or not Batista will be involved in WrestleMania in any way. Batista has not been seen in the WWE since May of 2010, and reportedly said in an interview that he would not be back “any time soon” due to being unhappy with the direction of the company. Batista’s ”embarrassing” way of quitting and leaving the company: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j1ioIbDmLB8.
@justin This is not a spoiler/dirtsheet website, if you want to leave comments like above use the other website wrestling news. Idiot.
I have to disagree I like to cover for this and I am very curious about how this WM will turn out .Last year was not great at all there was a few great matches and it was Edge Last match which I am still shocked by that because he is my all time favorite wrestler .
Cover is good enough but I don’t like that neither of the champions are featured at all. if they aren’t going to show them, then I would prefer a cover w rock and cena only, but w a different pose. something like WM 6 might be neat
I think it should be only Rock and Cena on the cover really. If you add others then you shouldn’t leave off the wwe champion CM Punk. Otherwise I quite like it, but I also think it might not be the final one. Don’t they usually finalise the cover after the event has happened? I’m not sure.
I was watching my past WrestleMania dvds leading up to WrestleMania 28, and I noticed on the WrestleMania 22 dvd, they have the entire Saturday Night’s Main Event show on there from 2006. I really hope they put that 1 hour, Once In A Lifetime special on there.
I wouldn’t be surprised if they included the “Once in a lifetime” special…i think they will definitely put it in there, maybe even as a Blu-ray exclusive.
I like it! Cena looks like a boxer… Rock looks like Tyson! lol!
But they could have done a better job with Triple H / Undertaker & HBK at the bottom: Like make Triple H look as small as The Undertaker instead of taking up most of the cover and fitting a bit more in of HBK!
I agree with you. HBK’s shots in particular always make him look like a little girl. His flamboyant poses fit his character, but I think they cheapen his wrestling style
4 of the best WWE superstars of all time and some other guy who looks like Wonder Woman
Show some respect Jabroni! lol
Of course it’s not only Rock and Cena on the cover – it’s ALL about the Game! Always and forever! CM Who?
At least they used the poster this year…
Isnt there going to be a 2-disk version to?
There is not. The article does say this.
Oh, that sucks… 🙁
I got Wrestlemania 26&27 both on 2-Disk Versions
Wrestlemania 26 I had got in the states and the year after
Wrestlemania 27 2-Disk Version came to canada for the first time
in a long time before they started doing the 3-Disk Sets was a very
nice thing for my collection.
The side cover kind of looks Tagged Classic-y. Hope they fix that. :/
The Wrestlemania covers are always very good and this one is no different. I love the glossy pictures, how great the background always looks and of course the choice of wrestlers on the cover. The packaging and artwork never dissapoints. Very curious as to the Blu-Ray extras, probably the dark match, interviews and the hype, the regular release is likely to have the HOF and just WM.
I hope the bluray has alot of Cena promos as extras. Especially the one where he says Cena blasted the Rock time and time again, so, hopefully they include alot of those.
lol, sorry. Didn’t get to finish what I was saying. I hit enter by accident. I meant to say, I hope they include the promo where Cena says “I’ll see you next week movie star” at the end. My fav Cena promo by far in this feud.
I have yet to actually purchase a WrestleMania bluray, but I will be soon. 26 and 27 I need to re-buy on bluray. I like the fact that the blurays have the entire WM event on 1 disc. I hate when the DVD versions have the last couple of main events on the 2nd disc.
I love the fact it wasn’t just Rock & Cena on the cover. It looks awesome
i like it not too crowded 🙂
I actually kinda don’t like it. The cover is good, but I wish they used the logo WWEDVDNews used at the top of the article instead. And the spine is blah. First day buy for me anyway, so..
That looks too much like a temporary cover to me. It’s very similar to last year’s cover.
We’ll get confirmation soon on what the final artwork looks like, and whether or not this one stays. Then we’ll update everybody here on the site. 🙂
I like the cover and all, I just wish they used the shiney WM logo instead. Shiney logo and a different spine would be good. Other than that, I like the Rock and Cena at the top.
