EXCLUSIVE: Full Match Listing for WWE ‘30 Years of SUMMERSLAM’ DVD – 18 Bouts, Reports & Recaps!

June 6, 2018 by Daniel Bee

WWE '30 Years of SummerSlam' DVD - Full Content Revealed!

It’s heating up today at WrestlingDVDNetwork.com as we exclusively reveal the FULL content listing WWE has in the works for “30 Years of SummerSlam”.

SummerSlam will be the last of the “Big Four” Pay-Per-Views to have its history documented on WWE Home Video following the 3-disc sets released in recent years on WrestleMania (“The True Story of WrestleMania” in 2011), Royal Rumble (“The True Story of the Royal Rumble” in 2016) and Survivor Series (“30 Years of Survivor Series” last year).

On the heels of this year’s upcoming SummerSlam spectacular in Brooklyn, New York, three decades worth of SummerSlam moments will be collected together for the latest 3-disc retrospective.

This time around it’s a match compilation and WWE have just finalized their list of 18 featured bouts — among them are WWE title matches, Intercontinental title matches, Women’s title matches, two Ladder matches, a Steel Cage match, a TLC match and even a Boiler Room Brawl!

Joining the matches will be a series of “Reports” and “Recaps” that highlight important SummerSlam milestones in its 30-year history (might we see a familiar face return to host these segments – perhaps Gene Okerlund or Sean Mooney?)

Everything combined, by our count “30 Years of SummerSlam” is set to pack in 8 hours and 40 minutes of content and you can own it all this August. We’re so quick with today’s scoops that this new WWE DVD offering has not yet been listed on Amazon.com (expect it within a week or two) but if you’re in the UK it is available to pre-order right now here on Amazon.co.uk.

Bunch of trolls in here talking about wwe putting out junk , but still bought & watched the release in moms basement, you trolls suck

Nearly time for this!

What a terrible collection. All the best matches happened from 88-91.. and you skipped over 90% of them?! Bret Hart vs. Mr. Perfect.. Warrior vs. Rude for the IC title, Mega Powers vs The Mega Bucks.. all of these classics are missing.. I have the box set, so luckily, I wont need to waste my money on this set..

SCSA

WHY IN THE HELL AREN’T THEY INCLUDING A COUNTDOWN OF 30 GREAT MOMENTS TO THIS SET LIKE THEY DID IN THE ‘30 YEARS OF THE SURVIVOR SERIES’ SET⁉️

RabidHeat
WDN Reader
RabidHeat

Because that sucked and only filled 1 hour of the disc?

SCSA
WDN Reader
SCSA

No! That didn’t SUCK! At least it would go through 30 Years of Summerslam- Adding the 30 greatest moments!

RabidHeat
WDN Reader
RabidHeat

No new interviews were recorded, no talking heads, no new material. All of the moments were presented in the exact same form that they were on the original PPVs, which we already own. It sucked. And it was lazy. And you haven’t addressed the 2 hours of unused disc space on the countdown disc.

Anan
WDN Reader

I’d have honestly preferred a documentary type style like True Story of WM and I think the RR set had over a countdown like the SSeries. You may gst your countdown portion if they ever release a RAW 30 or 35 set counting down the best moments in the show’s history but that means dvd repeats.

Foley is good

Zero interest in this release. Oh well at least I will save some cash.

What a damn waste already have the anthology so yeah won’t be buying this crap….they gave up on anthologies smh

It’ll never happen I know, but I wish WWE would go back to releasing complete anthology sets of PPVs instead of lazy releases like this.

LP1

They should have included (fill in the match) from SummerSlam (fill in the year). That would’ve made this set way better.

best comment.

Isn’t that what comment sections are for, to talk about the subject of the article?

SRB
WDN Reader
SRB

No Vincenzzzzzo, hence your thumbs down! The comment section is only designed to praise every single release WWE comes out with. Me personally, I’m looking very forward to this year’s upcoming Brock Lesnar set. 9 hours of suplexes! and a bonus disc with nothing on it since we haven’t seen Brock in months!

RabidHeat
WDN Reader
RabidHeat

But they’re not doing a Brock set, which proves you’re just been a massive bellend.

LP1
WDN Reader

I don’t even understand what you mean. I was referring to the SummerSlam 30th Anniversary DVD. Unless I’m missing something.

Henry

I’m gonna pass on this set. I knew the match listing wouldn’t be good if it’s being released so soon. Some things never change.

whut
WDN Reader
whut

how would a sooner release make this release any better, when it’s literally a compilation of the last three decades?

SAB
WDN Reader
SAB

Henry’s comment meant match listing released so far ahead of DVD release.

whut
WDN Reader

I was aware of that. my point was that how would the match listing change significantly anyway?

SAB
WDN Reader
SAB

What?!

LP1
WDN Reader
LP1

SAB, the original commenter said he knew the match listing wouldn’t be good if the listing is being released so soon. I believe WHUT’s point is how would the match listing be any better, no matter when the listing is released? It’s still going to be the same matches anyway.

Henry
WDN Reader
Henry

It’s not the first time they’ve done this. 30 Years of Survivor Series match listing came out so soon and it looked like no effort was put in whatsoever.

RabidHeat
WDN Reader
RabidHeat

I think what the original poster meant was if it was a more exciting match listing they would’ve waited and drummed up interest before posting it, but instead they just threw it out there early because they knew we wouldn’t like it anyway. I dunno, something like that. I think he was talking about when the listing was released, not the release of the DVD set itself.

Vincenzzzzzo
WDN Reader
Vincenzzzzzo

Definitely should have had the Mega Powers vs the Mega Bucks on this DVD. I would have even preferred Hogan vs Earthquake rather than Hogan vs Michaels!

SCSA
WDN Reader
SCSA

I feel that most of the matches are good, though ‘Perfect Vs Bret Hart’ should have been added!

Also isn’t there supposed to be a big list of 30 – 1 Best moments just like the 30 Best moments of Survivor Series?!

whut
WDN Reader
whut

from a “die hard” collector standpoint, that makes this compilation basically worthless (as much as many of us love some oldschool SummerSlam reports, we’re not going to pay money just for that, right?).

(although considering what an awful rushjob the Survivor Series seemed to have been, the home video department probably did us a favor)

Lachy
WDN Reader
Lachy

So it’s ok having Bret Hart vs. The British Bulldog for the umpteenth time but it’s worthless having Mr. Perfect vs. Bret Hart?

Anan
WDN Reader
Anan

Not a bad list. But if this is really supposed to be “the best of Summerslam” as I’m thinking it’s supposed to be, then the following really should’ve been included: 91: Bret Hart vs Mr Perfect – to this very day, still one of if not the definitive IC Title match in Summerslam history! 95: HBK vs Razor Ramon – a great follow up from their first Ladder match classic from WM10. 97: Taker vs Bret Hart – imho, best wrestling match of this specific year’s Summerslam. 98: Taker vs SCSA – of all their 1 on 1 ppv matches,… Read more »

Great list of matches but I’d leave out Test vs Shane and Taker vs JBL Shane’s had better matches in his career. By 2004, JBL did reach the top as Champion but I felt his in ring was a bit slowed down compared to his explosive Acolytes/APA days. But hey that’s just my opinion. The crowd was disrespectful during Taker vs JBL with their wave and I wouldn’t want WWE to take up disc space w/that disrespect when there’s other matches they could add instead. I added my own match additions list in a separate comment but I just thought… Read more »

That’s 34 matches you have listed. It would have to be a 5 disc set to fit all of them.

Anan

They could always replace some matches w/other ones. Or if this set sells well enough which I feel is unlikely they could have a follow up that includes the missing matches. That maybe why they left those matches off this set, in hopes that it’d sell good enough to warrant another set of SSlam matches.

whut
WDN Reader

how are all of these going to fit on a three disc set (or probably even on a four disc one)?

Hopefully, we will see something similar to this for WCW PPV’s. SuperBrawl, and Halloween Havoc deserve some love.

I wouldn’t hold my breath…with the network wwe seemed to have forgotten about wcw releases…

MikeS_87
WDN Reader
MikeS_87

You’d think with the network that they’d have forgotten about releases like this SummerSlam one aswell.

whut
WDN Reader
whut

SummerSlam is made to seem like a big deal to newer viewers though (and this release doesn’t seem to be catered to rabid collectors – we own all of this already anyway).

while WCW, to a younger audience, is likely a mere footnote.
