REVEALED: THREE New 2017 WWE DVDs – ‘Dawn of ATTITUDE’, ‘NXT: Secret to Success’, And… Another!

May 16, 2017 by Daniel Bee

WWE Home Video 2017 - Logo

This week PWInsider.com revealed the following 2 WWE DVD projects in the works for late 2017, and today we’ve been able to officially confirm their go-ahead:

— “1997: Dawn of the Attitude”

— “NXT: From Secret to Success”

 
The 1997-themed Home Video offering is indeed scheduled for October 2017 as suggested and you may recall there being rumblings of such a release this time last year. If the details in WWE-issued surveys are to be believed this one could take the form of a “Best of” compilation to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the stand-out year that kicked off the Attitude Era.

A look back at the year 1997. It was the rise of Stone Cold Steve Austin, the birth of DX, the summer of the Hart Foundation and the debut of Kane. And who could forget the infamous Montreal Screwjob?

Moving ahead to December 2017, as of right now the company will be releasing a new NXT DVD!

Appearing as “The Rise of NXT” on those aforementioned surveys, WWE’s second Home Video on NXT is speculated to tell the story of the brand, its beginnings and its rise to prominence, and of course present a selection of accompanying matches and moments.

The upcoming 1997 and NXT titles are expected to be produced as the usual three-disc DVD sets, while Blu-ray editions could be possible for whichever have documentaries in their content.

That’s October and December sorted, but we’ve heard what’s planned in between!

WrestlingDVDNetwork.com can exclusively reveal early word of WWE planning a Survivor Series-themed DVD to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the event having first began in 1987.

“30 Years of Survivor Series” was a DVD/Blu-ray concept first talked about back in early 2016 — could it take the form of a compilation highlighting the greatest matches and moments in the PPV’s history, perhaps a “True Story” follow up to WrestleMania and Royal Rumble, or might this be the opportunity for WWE to complete the “Survivor Series Anthology” box set that never was?

Great matches mentioned below, though just on a side note, I would like to wish to see a set like the ‘John Cena – Greatest Rivlaries’ set, where he was shown having his rivlaries w/several superstars w/2matches shown for every rivlary 🙂 I’m not really a John Cena fan, although I must say that most of his matches on that set were amazing! It would be great to see more sets like that for guys like Shawn Michaels, The Rock, Triple H, Stone Cold, CM Punk, The Undertaker & others! As for back to the True story of the Survivor… Read more »

is there really a need for that, though?

afair there were at least some matches on the Cena set that were previously unreleased (or at least not released apart from the initial ppv releases etc.).

but pretty much every of the big rivalries the workers you had has already been covered, usually even on their very own dvds.

I would like a documentary on Mid South Wrestling. A ton of big names went through that promotion. Maybe they could double up and include championship wrestling from Florida into the documentary as well. I mean they did one on world class championship wrestling and mid South was so much better.

Checkout the Legends of MidSouth DVD that would b the doc you would want

probably not going to happen, at least not on physical media, since (afaik) the “Legends of Mid-South” set wasn’t that big of a seller.

I hope triple h vs Sgt slaughter boot camp match gets added. Along with Ken shamrock vs shawn michaels and Ken shamrock vs vader. Also taker vs mankind and the vader vs Steve Austin vs bret hart vs taker match from final four February 1997. My favorite year of wrestling.

Looking forward to the NXT doc as it’s their best brand right now! As for what matches I wanna see on the set, tough call as they’ve got a ton of great ones to choose from! Nakamura vs Zayn, DIY vs Revival, alongside matches involving Balor, Asuka, Bayley all come to mind here. SSeries….if it’s a True Story set, hope to see a chapter on debuts as some big names debuted here. Kane’s official in ring debut happened here vs Mankind, Rock and of course Taker debuted here too. Dawn of Attitude….guessing Kane’s debut means the Taker vs HBK match… Read more »

Hopefully this Survivor Series set will be in the same vein as the true story of Wrestlemania and Royal Rumble Sets.And with this,that means hopefully next year we’ll get a Summerslam type set next year since it’ll be 30 years of Summerslam.

Totally agree with you on this! Although the True Story wasn’t so great far ad reviews go though WM was better than RR.

I hope to one day see a documentary set on RAW, recognized by the company as the flagship show so deserves the doc treatment, followed by a documentary on SD/SDLive

Here’s an idea, why don’t you finish the Survivor Series Anthology set instead of this 30th anniversary DVD?

Probably because you can just see every survivor series on the network.

Shouldn’t have to keep saying this, but not everybody wants the network.

Amen, the Network is just overkill. I wouldn’t be able to make a decision as to what to watch if I had it, lol.

I also agree. Most of the people who comment on this site just will never understand that not everyone has the network. Not only that but they will argue with you and try and make you feel like you are less of a wrestling fan because you don’t have it.

one the other hand you could also argue that especially physical media and which releases get greenlit is based on the (expected) sales. but a Survivor Series anthology is probaby expected to perform very poorly (I guess since most of the potential buyers are expected to be Network subscribers as well). (keep in mind that due to the numbers the Anthology releases did the decision was made to not do another Survivor Series one as well as not doing any kind of that type of set for King of the Ring and In Your House at all – and much… Read more »

Thanks to you 3 for speaking some sense! I never use the Network, mostly because I just don’t watch the WWE anymore! I’m just in to watching sets that involve matches from the past (mainly from 88-2003)!

I therefore don’t want use of the Network either & just like ‘Justin F’ says, I’d rather stick to my Personal Collection.

I agree too.

You don’t use the Network because you’re into watching matches from 1988-2003. You do realize that there are literally thousands and thousands of matches from those years on the Network, right? The majority of them have never been released on DVD or BR and probably never will.

RabidHeat
Guest
RabidHeat

Yes, but you have to wonder as to the quality (in general) of said matches if it’s 2017 and they have still never been released on DVD.

LP1
Guest
LP1

I’m talking about the matches from those years 88-03, that are already on the Network. All of the Raws, Smackdowns, Prime Times, PPVs, Nitros, WCW, ECW, USWA, and the list goes on and on. The quality wouldn’t be any better on DVD than they already are on the Network.

whutwhut
Guest
whutwhut

I assume you misunderstood RabidHeat.

I think he/she meant that if it still hasn’t been put on dvd, it’s most likely not that good/relevant anyway.

(with the only exception being a handful of Benoit matches)

Good call. My bad. I thought we were talking about picture quality.

The nxt dvd that will be released in December will more or less be best of nxt volume 2(unless they include matches that were released in volume 1).

I lost my copy of NXT Volume 1 when I moved so I personally hope they include most of the same matches in Volume 2 so I can get them again.

Have you ever thought about maybe buying volume1 again very cheap on Amazon.I’m just you know throwing common sense out there

I already bought it once, I don’t want to buy it again. I like those matches tho and want them for my collection

LP1

But if those same matches are on the second NXT release then you’re essentially buying it again anway.

RabidHeat

Lol, that’s the first thing I thought too! Waiting for a second volume and hoping that it duplicates the first one, lol!

RabidHeat

I just had a really funny thought. If WWE are officially acknowledging that 1997 was the “dawn” of the Attitude Era, why the hell did they include so much 1996 content on the Attitude Era Vol. 3 DVD? Double-standards.

LP1
Guest
LP1

Yup, this was a debate that people here had when Attitude Vol 3 came out. Officially WWE Network acknowledges the Attitude Era as lasting from December 15, 1997 (the Vince “we’re entertainment” promo) until Mania 17. No idea why they included matches from the Spring of 1996.

whutwhut
Guest
whutwhut

for me it’s much simpler: WrestleMania XIV to WrestleMania X-Seven. the former one started it, the latter closed it.

(I will also argue that while 1997 is similar to 1998, there are still significant differences. Raw hadn’t completely switched to the “crash tv” style yet)

LP1
Guest
LP1

Ive always went with Survivor Series 97 to Mania 17. Survivor Series 97 wws significant for many reasons. Obviously it was the Bret screwjob that lead to the creation of the evil Mr. McMahon character. Also Survivor Series 97 was the first night they debuted the WWF attitude logo by airing those attitude commercials during the show.

RabidHeat
Guest
RabidHeat

Well they were very clever actually; if you look at the blurb of Vol. 3 DVD, it describes matches featuring “all of your favorite Attitude Era superstars”, which they do, but it doesn’t actually state that the matches themselves took place in the era.

The entrances are clipped to fit the kickoff matches? I think I’ll stick to the US version. As far as a Survivor Series set goes, I’d welcome a True Story type release. Looking forward to finding out what it eventually is soon.

RabidHeat
Guest
RabidHeat

But you wouldn’t have the entrances OR the matches for the Kickoff matches on the US version, so the UK version is still better. The above didn’t mean they have edited the entrances on the main show.

The US version does have the entrances intact.
