The days of individual packaged compilations for Monday Night Raw and SmackDown! look to be over.
WWE DVD News has revealed that WWE’s first big planned release of the new year is Raw and SmackDown: The Best of 2011.
That either means the individual sets aren’t selling all that well, or there wasn’t enough best of material in 2011 to justify two releases. Rather than be a three-disc compilation as they have traditionally been, the DVD will be a 4-disc release, while the Blu-ray will contain three discs.
Raw and SmackDown: The Best of 2011 will hit store shelves on January 31, 2012.
Here’s the official synopsis:
“For the WWE Universe, there are 4 hours of appointment television every week, as Raw on Monday nights and SmackDown on Friday nights continue to offer the most shocking, surprising, athletic, humorous, and dramatic moments on television. Now for the first time ever, the best of Raw and SmackDown are offered in one releaseâ€“Raw and SmackDown: The Best of 2011. This 4-Disc DVD and 3-Disc Blu Ray release will include more than 11 hours of the best of Raw and SmackDown.
Includes the best, most outlandish, and controversial moments of the season including: The Rockâ€™s return to WWE to become the most electrifying host in WrestleMania history Edgeâ€™s shockingly sudden retirement CM Punkâ€™s game-changing antics and interviews and his caustic rivalry with John Cena The stunning removal of Mr. McMahon from power and Triple Hâ€™s ascension to WWE COO Randy Ortonâ€™s World Heavyweight Championship reign on SmackDown, and more!”
