It’s that time again (as WrestlingDVDNetwork.com turns 12 years old this month) when we take a look at the cover artwork, content, and planned special editions for the WrestleMania DVD!

We’ve got our hands on the full content listing WWE has finalized for WrestleMania 38 on DVD and Blu-ray, which will be formatted as the usual 3-disc set on DVD and a 2-disc set on Blu-ray. The listing reveals that for the DVD version, similar to last year’s WrestleMania 37 release, Night 1 of ‘Mania will be featured on the first disc and Night 2 on the second disc.

However, the two main events of both evenings — Kevin Owens vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar — will be featured together on the third disc of the DVD, and along with those matches will be The Undertaker’s Hall of Fame induction speech as an extra!

  1. RICHARD W says:

    Just wanted to state that for those who ordered the DVD version on Amazon here in the USA, I got a notice stating it will not arrive to one’s destination until a month from now, not sure why, but just giving a heads-up for those that took this route to get this DVD set.

  2. LP1 says:

    A few months ago: “Man, I’m really gonna miss collecting WWE home videos. It was a great run. If nothing else, I’d give anything if we can at least get WrestleMania 38 released on DVD and BD. Let’s hope.”

    Now we get Mania 38 released: “Ugh. What a waste. So much free space on the discs. Where’s the full Hall Of Fame ceremony? Where’s extras from Raw and Smackdown? Where’s the Andre Battle Royal? Why are wrestlers not positioned properly on the cover? Waah waah waah.”

    Some things never change.

  3. Peter Bielik says:

    Interesting. Undertaker is front and center in full costume despite only retiring.

    And Becky and Charlotte each have the wrong opponent above them.

    And I positively don’t like KO show being on a separate disc with Reigns/Lesnar. That makes zero sense, I like continuity. I hope the blu-ray isn’t done like this.

  4. Dennis winship says:

    I wish i could have wrestle mania 38 on dvd. It would of been a better wrestle mania with Scott hall if he was still living. Dennis winship Lynn massachusetts

  5. Manny says:

    Funny how the wrestlemania 22 dvd had way more extras than the mania blu rays have today. That’s what made buying them more special

  6. Justin F says:

    Oh, how much space they could have dedicated to the HOF on that 3rd disc…

  7. Jonathan says:

    Austin vs Kevin Owens was the Main event of Night 1. It’s not listed.

  8. BAS says:

    I just noticed the part where it says the main events will be on disc 3. I intend on getting the blu-ray anyway, but I hope the blu-ray release means each night has their own respective disc, including their own main event.

    I’m sure that’ll be a given, but with each night not really having their own disc on the 36 blu-ray, (first hour of night 2 on disc 1) I wouldn’t put it past them doing a similar format on the blu-ray. Because to me, it seems like they could’ve given each night of 36 their own disc, each have their respective kickoff match on that disc, and one disc have the main extras while the other had the blu-ray exclusive extras.

  9. Patrick McNamara says:

    Why did they put the KO show with Austin that turned into something else on the 3rd disc that was the main event for night one wasn’t it?

  10. Andemoine Winrow says:

    Why even put the Undertaker’s speech on there if there is no ”HALL OF FAME” added ? That could have been on a 4th disc. Really dumb. It was as if nobody else mattered.

  11. BAS says:

    Pretty much what I expected from this release given each night ran about 4 hours. It would’ve been nice if they squeezed in at least a few more extras, such as the full event of Undertaker’s statue being unveiled at Axxess, but the big priority was obviously his Hall of Fame induction, so I’m honestly okay with this release, even if it seems very bare bones.

    Besides that, this isn’t the first time a WrestleMania release felt bare bones, so I’m not really all that disappointed with it.

    • RabidHeat says:

      Yeah, I seem to remember WrestleMania 24 feeling quite bare bones for its time. I think it had the pre-show match and the full Hall of Fame ceremony, but no other TV or Behind the Scenes extras as such.

      • BAS says:

        Same can be said about the WrestleManias that had a 2 disc variant (23, 26, 27) if you can count those that is. Even 33 since for us in the states, it was only the event and the Hall of Fame, and I know you guys in the UK were at least treated to getting the pre-show matches for that one, but nothing real special outside of that.

  12. RabidHeat says:

    Hi Daniel – thanks for the info. Two questions that I’m hoping you may be able to answer though:

    1) Is this full confirmation that there will be no 4-disc edition in the UK this year with any extra content, as there had been in the few years apart from 2020?

    2) And I dunno why this is so important to me but I ask it every year, is the standard artwork (with Roman and Brock staring head-to-head at the top), still likely to be visible on the digipak packaging underneath? As in, will the exclusive artwork just be on an outer O-Ring sleeve as in previous years?

    Cheers. 🙂

    • Daniel Bee says:

      Hey. The info I have says:

      – the standard DVD is the traditional Digipak + O-card
      – the alternate artwork for DVD is on an O-card
      – WWEDVD.co.uk has an exclusive Blu-ray sleeve with the alternate artwork

      4th disc, not been told of one, so assume that isn’t happening.

      • RabidHeat says:

        Cheers Daniel. I’m going to assume the standard artwork is probably still under the exclusive O-Ring then, as in previous years.

        It’s a shame re: the bonus 4th disc content as that’s the most interesting thing to wait to hear about each year IMO. Also a shame that we don’t get any bonus WrestleMania Raw or Smackdown stuff such as the Battle Royal and maybe that Ricochet I.C. Triple Threat, as I honestly think I’d prefer that kinda stuff and some storyline promos to Undertaker’s speech, which will probably get released on something else at some point anyway. I would say the lack of the bonus content on ‘Mania this year is really indicative that, while DVDs do seem to have gotten a reprieve for this year, they will nevertheless be gone at some point soon. When less effort is now being put even into the biggest selling release of the year, that is an ominous sign.

        Also not sure how I feel about the main events being separated from the nights they were on, although I guess space has dictated this. On the plus side, if Charlotte or Ronda own this, they can now imagine and pretend that their match was the main event of Night 1 after all!

        • Daniel Bee says:

          While I’ve not been told anything new on the future of WWE DVDs, Fremantle’s releases in the UK seem to be going strong – the Ruthless Aggression 2 DVD above for instance feels quite independent of the usual WWE releases (e.g. the back cover artwork font/synopsis is a different style, if we scrutinise closely). Maybe in the UK they will still be around for quite some time. Let’s hope so. 🙂

  13. Richard W says:

    So on the DVD version here in the USA, on Disc 3, why not just include the entire HOF ceremony and the Andre Battle Royal and title matches from Smackdown before WM 38 as extras, versus just including one speech from the event? Glad it’s coming out on DVD but it just looks so watered down though and not enough effort being put into this by WWE and their distributors. OR…just make a Disc 4 as well with those extras I just spoke about.

    • RabidHeat says:

      I agree. It is quite frustrating when there is clearly approx. 50 minutes of free space on Disc 3! Certainly room for at least a couple of matches on top of Taker’s speech. Maybe even more than two matches if the entrances weren’t included, which they have done in the past to fit Kickoff matches on etc.

  14. Tommy D says:

    Ugh.Compared to last years release, this is really bare bones. Was hoping for some stuff from Stand and Deliver and the Andre Battle Royal. Really hoping WWE UK has a bonus disc, but I am not going to get my Hope’s up.

  15. Timothy J Thorpe says:

    I’m getting the blu ray without question, but I assume there’s no blu ray extras for the second year in a row?
