A few days ago we posted news about the upcoming releases of WrestleMania XXVI on DVD and Blu-ray. In the article I cited that the Blu-ray release would be exclusive to Best Buy. This was a practice that began with the release of Royal Rumble 2010 in March.

Upcoming titles include WWE: Wrestlemania XXVI (Three-disc collector edition) and WWE: Best Pay-per-View Matches 2009-2010, slated for July 6 and July 20, respectively.
