We recently announced WWE’s plans to release WrestleMania 37, on both DVD and Blu-ray formats, to fans in the United States on May 25th, 2021.
The domestic release will include a free Topps trading card of Drew McIntyre, with a limited number of these signed by McIntyre himself.
Now, courtesy of WWE Home Video UK, we have an early reveal of the official cover artwork for the DVD and Blu-ray, before ‘Mania even takes place this weekend!
As expected in a previous report, the UK release is scheduled for June 7th, 2021.
That’s less than 2 weeks later than the North American release and with it comes several special editions and extra goodies to get excited about! Firstly, in the UK the DVD release will come housed in a Digipak that you’ll no doubt remember from the long history of WWE DVDs released with this packaging style.
This market will not only be receiving the standard 3-disc DVD and 2-disc Blu-ray, UK fans will also be treated to an exclusive 4-disc DVD and 3-disc Blu-ray set — that’s right, we have a bonus disc confirmed this year! These exclusive versions will also feature alternate artwork.
Let’s break it down…
• Standard 3-Disc DVD in Digipak + O-Card (Slipcover)
The regular 3-disc DVD release we’ve come to expect, however this does feature Digipak packaging and a slipcover.
• Exclusive 4-Disc DVD in Digipak + Alternate Artwork O-Card (Slipcover)
The DVD, but with an extra disc and alternate artwork on a slipcover. This is an ASDA Retail Exclusive and WWEDVD.co.uk Online Exclusive (pre-orders available now). This will be limited to 4,000 copies.
• Standard 2-Disc Blu-ray
The regular 2-disc Blu-ray release.
• Exclusive 3-Disc Blu-ray + Alternate Cover Artwork
The Blu-ray, but with an extra disc and alternate artwork. This is exclusive to WWEDVD.co.uk (pre-orders available now).
A quick note on the release to Germany.
In the German market, fans will receive similar ‘Mania releases to that of the UK, however their “Exclusive 4-Disc DVD” will be limited to just 2,000 copies, less than the 4,000 produced for the UK. German stores will not be offering the “Exclusive 3-Disc Blu-ray” as this will strictly be made available through the WWE DVD UK website.
What will the Alternate Artwork look like?
That’s currently unknown, the artwork you see immediately above is temporary and will change prior to the release.
What’s on the Bonus Disc?
The bonus disc is in DVD format and will be “The Best of WrestleMania Week”. This is slated to feature matches and moments from the RAW and SmackDown episodes taking place during ‘Mania season, plus coverage of NXT Takeover, too!
It doesn’t sound likely there will be content from the Hall of Fame 2020/2021 ceremonies, for those curious.
We were able to confirm that the WrestleMania 37 bonus disc and alternate artwork are both exclusive to the UK and Europe’s Home Video releases by Fremantle.
