WWF Attitude Era DVD In Production Now At WWE Says Mick Foley

February 18, 2012 by Daniel Bee

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.

WWE Attitude Era - Mick Foley - WWF Champion

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.

[…] Whilst there was no mention of a DVD by Booker, nor anything solid, you may recall Mick Foley also referenced it on Twitter lately. Given these two occurrences and the confirmation that the WWE ’13 video game will be […]

A best Of would be hard to do. Real hard. And they’re always opinionated so people will say well this should have been here too.

And it would be hard because there’s been some great matches and segments.

If they’re gonna do a Best Of, I say at least let the fans submit suggestions and go from there.

Personally, I think 1998 was a great year. I doubt they will give that year it’s own set though lol.

Here is what I would see if I buy this dvd (because i was in that time during the attitude era when i started watching the wwf/wwe in 1999):

RAW is WAR (1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, and some parts in 2002)
SmackDown! (1999, 2000, 2001, and some parts in 2002)

I remember the good ol’ times watching SmackDown! (not Raw is War) during the Attitude Era when I was little from the late 90s up to early 2000s for me. That was my most favorite era of all time.

@RabidHeat

The Attitude era wasn’t just hardcore,blading,whatever
Attitude era was made up of the stars and storyline that went with the monday nights wars….Attitude Era=Monday Night Wars
It ended a week before WMX7 when WCW was bought….that doesn’t mean wrestling sucked, it was still good…the attitude era doesn’t mean entertaining wrestling, other eras besides now are entertaining

Just a general theory about the Attitude Era… The more I think about it, I almost feel like the Attitude Era could now, retrospectively, be looked upon as continuing until WWE went PG several months following Chris Benoit’s death. Because if you think about it, in 2002 we had the return of the nWo, the violent acts perpetrated by them and HBK being bludgoned into a wheel chair state with a sledgehammer by his best friend, several violent street fight-type matches (including a Hardcore Match between Trish/Victoria!) and the bloody first-ever Elimination Chamber. In 2003 we had things like Katie… Read more »
