Just a few hours ago the “Hardcore Legend” Mick Foley made reference on Twitter (@realMickFoley) to what looks to be a Attitude Era DVD in the works at WWE right now.
In a conversation with Steve Austin on there reminiscing about old times in the business, Foley revealed he was in Stamford yesterday with WWE specifically for this purpose.
Steve Austin: @realMickFoley is one of the toughest S.O.B.’s I ever met. Period.
Mick Foley: Thanks @steveaustinBSR – I was just in Milwaukee last week, telling the story about Stone Cold throwing my front teeth into the crowd.
Steve Austin: @realMickFoley That wasn’t a rib, Mick…I only did it to give the people there moneys worth…you’d a done the same with my teeth…#pimpin
Mick Foley: Those were good times, kid. I was just in Stamford, CT today, shooting the Attitude DVD, saying @steveaustinBSR was THE man in that era!
Not much to go off, yet sounds very promising at the same time. If it’s the Attitude Era DVD that we think it is, then Mick was probably at WWE Headquarters to either provide interview footage for a documentary, or perhaps shooting segments as the host of the feature.
One way they could do it is a “Best of The Attitude Era” set, a compilation of 1997-2001 footage, with Mick Foley as the host. Just a guess right now, but we’ll give details when we have them.
Of course, there might be some concerns about releasing such a DVD in this “PG” orientated era of the WWE. Back in 2010 we had a chance to speak with them about this very topic and the impression given off was that in the current environment, WWE would find it tricky to approach releasing a single set that has this focus of ‘risqué’, adult centered or violent content.
Mark on the WWEDVDNews team recently created the concept cover art below as part of his “fantasy” feature. It’s based on what he feels a possible Attitude Era themed WWE DVD should look like, and the name given to it was WWE Attitude: Uncut and Uncensored.
