For 30 years we’ve been captivated, mesmerized and blown away by summer’s biggest event!
Last week we revealed the 18 matches that made the cut for “30 Years of SummerSlam”, WWE’s upcoming 3-disc DVD set that will journey through three decades of SummerSlam moments from its inception way back in 1988 right through to last year’s Pay-Per-View.
As mentioned, along with the bouts will be a series of “Reports” and “Recaps” highlighting important SummerSlam milestones — WrestlingDVDNetwork.com has exclusively learned that each disc will have its own host who are seen in newly-filmed segments, so let’s find out who the hosts are!
Disc 1 will be hosted by WWE Hall of Famer “Mean” Gene Okerlund, Disc 2 by Jonathan Coachman, and Disc 3 by Charly Caruso. The concept with the hosts appears to be having a different WWE personality introducing their own “era” of SummerSlam matches and moments.
The official trailer has also surfaced today (watch it below) along with WWE’s synopsis for the DVD which contains a slight error; Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. The Undertaker from SummerSlam ’98 is referenced but as we recently found out that match is not included in the content listing.
Perhaps early plans for the DVD collection had this bout pencilled in.
For 30 years, SummerSlam has been the ‘biggest party of the summer’, and WWE’s premiere summer event has been the place where champions were crowned, dream matches were made, and rivalries came to an explosive end. Now, relive the greatest matches & moments from the illustrious three-decade history of WWE SummerSlam!
Featuring Bret Hart vs. British Bulldog from Wembley Stadium in 1992,
Stone Cold vs. Undertaker from MSG in 1998, Shawn Michaels vs. Triple H from 2002, Shawn Michaels vs. Hulk Hogan from 2005, John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar from 2014, and much much more!
