A new synopsis for WWE: The Attitude Era has also been revealed.

Bust out your Austin 3:16 shirt, strike a 5-second pose, heat up a delicious slice of pie and countdown to Y2J all over again with The Attitude Era. Go back to the days of debauchery when radical antiheroes ditched saying their prayers and taking their vitamins for opening up a can of whoop ass and laying the SmackDown; when rebels ruled the airwaves and PG stood for puppies and grapefruits.

This 3-disc slobberknocker is packed with all the action that pushed censors to new limits, shattered cable TV ratings and crushed WWE’s competition like a Spanish announcer’s table.


– The Austin/McMahon rivalry
– The invention of Hell in a Cell, TLC, Brawl for All and more
– The revamping of Superstars’ entrance music
– All the top stars such as The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Mick Foley (all three of them!), DX, Undertaker, Edge & Christian, Chris Jericho, Trish Stratus, The McMahons, Kane, The APA, Sable, Goldust, Val Venis, and more!

Fans can own a brand new documentary recounting all the infamous moments from this controversial and revolutionary era. Plus, over 6-hours of envelope-pushing special features include all the aggression, antics and innuendos that proved to be the perfect cocktail for an explosion of popularity.

It’s released in less than two weeks time! Click here to pre-order your copy.

    Why does it only go up to 2000?

  2. djh1991 says:

    1999 was the best year for me when i started to watch the WWF/E when I was at the age of 8 yrs. old. SmackDown! was really cool at that time when they had a cool roster, awesome storylines, promos, matches, puppies (divas), and other cool things that they did. I did not watch Raw (Raw is War) at that time, so maybe I can watch it from 1997-2001. Anyway, I cannot wait to get this dvd, because it was a part of my childhood of becoming a wrestling fan in the late 1990s.

  3. Robert says:

    Vince’s “Cure For The Common Show” promo needs to spearhead this! If that turns out to be the first segment, I’ll know this will be one of, if not THE best DVD they’ve done in a long time.

  4. Roaster says:

    Hope the frat house brawl between Hardcore Holly and Dr. Death(R.I.P.) is on here. Hilarious moment that never gets mentioned.

  5. Anan says:

    In terms of an actual year, it’s really hard for me to single out by year, wwhen WWF was most successful in the Attitude Era. If I really had to pick one year though, it’d have to be 1998.

    1998 was a real groundbreaking year for WWE. The attention they got by having Tyson on their show really skyrocketed WWE to bigger heights then The Hulkamania Era took them. And considering how huge the company was in Hogan’s heyday, that was no small feat. The momentum continued with the Taker/Kane rivalry. The summer of 98 is still to to this very day, some of the VERY BEST entertainment they provided. To top it off, that summer was headlined, main evented by four of the best the industry had and WWE were lucky to have them and thankfully, utilized them to the fullest – Taker, Austin, Kane, Mankind, all veterans by that time who knew how to keep things rolling the right way.

    • Anonymous says:

      Kane wasn’t exactly a veteran at that point. The Taker/Kane feud didn’t draw either. Raw started losing ratings due to that. It was all Austin at that point–Rock and Foley would come later.

  6. nightmare says:

    Yea for me it depends on what’s one this one before I buy the blu ray

  7. Tony Kegger says:

    I hope this is not just a best of RAW DVD. The Attitude Era was more than just RAW and the Monday Night Wars. I hope they don’t ignore Smackdown and the PPVs.

  8. indyfan says:

    Dave, where’s the match listing and Eu release?

  9. mommy says:

    i want a match listing right now, get it done!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Hey Dave, why do you always put people down for asking questions and sharing their opinions? Why don’t you have some patience and let people post what they want to post and not always have some insulting and smart ass comment for them.

    • Dave says:

      I have patience…but not for stupidity and lack of common sense. This has been answered a million times. Sometime before or after December 31, 2012 the situation regarding future EU released will become clear. Until then NOBODY knows, except WWE.

  11. Sasch says:

    What about a EU release any news ???

    • Dave says:

      Why are people keep asking about EU release?!…there is no confirmation yet, once there is news about a new distributor it will be reported on this website.

      This is just like the idiots that kept asking about the Attitude era listing on each every article.

      Again, once its confirmed it will be reported. Have patience.

      • Anonymous says:

        Wheres the match listing?

      • indyfan says:

        Dave, what are you the WWEdvdnews police. Just ignore peoples posts instead of trying to argue with them and insulting them. You come off as some lonely loser who has no friends and no options in life.

        Now i have 2 questions for you.. Where the match listsing and what about the EU release/? Please tell us!!

      • indyfan says:

        Dave, what are you, the WWEdvdnews police? Just ignore peoples posts instead of trying to argue with them and insulting them. You come off as some lonely loser who has no friends and no options in real life.

        Now i have 2 questions for you Davey boy….. Where is the match listing and what about the EU release/? Please tell us!!

      • Anonymous says:

        When is the EU release?

  12. Nick says:

    I hope the doc is 3 hours with 50 chapters like the ecw one, but I’m not getting my hopes up. Just so much stuff to pick from, so much will be left out.

  13. Charles says:

    Hope there is a long documentary on this one. Just realised that the Montreal screwjob took place 15 years ago, on this date.

  14. Mike says:

    Remember that they also have a RAW DVD coming out in a few weeks with RAW 1000. So I am sure they will have a lot of attitude era stuff on there also. So maybe they will focus more on smackdown and PPVs on the attitude era DVD. Of course I am just speculating lol but that would be a smart move by WWE. If they put a lot of the same stuff on both the attitude era DVD and RAW 1000 then less people will buy both. I am really happy that we won’t have any of those stupid ass blurs.

  15. Robert says:

    Also for those of you thinking you’re getting PG content, think again. It has been confirmed through that it is in fact TV-14. So in my estimation, we’ll get the good stuff we’ve all been hoping for. Or at least most of it.

  16. Mark D says:

    I have a feeling one of the early chapters in the documentary will discuss where the Era actually began with personalities offering their opinion. However I don’t think they will conclusively answer when the Era began.

    I really hope that they give all of the starts credit for the success of the Era, not just the top stars. As during the time the Divas, Tag Teams and mid/lower card superstars were all really involved, and added a lot to the period. As you would often get a ‘top’ star facing off with in a match with a lower card personality in a completive match – this in turn made fans invest in lots of superstars regardless of their position on the card (a point sorely missing with today’s product IMO).

  17. Mongoose Wizard says:

    I gotta question it’s not Attitude related. But why do when they show Goldbergs run in WCW, They give him the crappy WWE Theme. But on some of the short spots involving him in the WWE, like the Rock concert on the Rocks Dvd released back in Febuary. They give him his WCW theme it doesn’t make sense!


      I noticed that 2 in the rock dvd the segement involving the rock and gillberg goldberg comes out to his wcw theme yet in matches hes involved in wcw they dub his theme, i dont understand that, they can use his theme so what the catch here, the only reason i can think of them dubbing his theme when he is in a wcw match is they dont have the rights to use the theme but can you use the theme if it was on WWE TV!!

  18. t says:

    Since SV can’t provide this, I wonder if I should wair for some new European supplier or get it from Austrailia or USA. Australia DVDs and Blu Rays are PAL, aren’t they?

    But I have heard in the past that some say PAL looks better and some say NTSC. Or someone once mentionend that the WWE US pressings would look better than the Silvervision ones. I wonder on what this depends, my DVD and Blu Ray players are european.

    What are your experiences with this matter (region code, pressing country and quality)?

    • Mark D says:

      As I understand it, the footage on Blu-ray discs is stored without either PAL/NTSC, and then the player will display it in the appropriate format for your TV (i.e. if you are in Europe it will playback as PAL and the US NTSC). I have both Silver Vision releases and US ones and notice no real difference at all on DVDs.

      Obviously the US releases are region locked (1 for DVD & A for Blu-ray) however if you have a region free player you will have no problems, alternatively you may be able to find a ‘region hack’ for your current player online 😉

      In regard to Australia their DVDs are a different region to the UK – region 4, but they are PAL. And for Blu-ray they are within the region, thus those will play fine on all UK Blu-ray players.

      Hope that helps 🙂

      • Dave says:

        Yup, PAL/NTSC is practically non-existent with HD.

        I imported all WWE UK exclusive Blu-rays (even region locked B) up to Money in the Bank 2012 and they play great on my region free Blu-ray player and quality is amazing…none of that PAL to NTSC framerate conversion like with DVD.

  19. Robert says:

    McMahon 3:16 says… I just pissed my pants.

  20. Anonymous says:

    Hey completely unrelated but dont think its been covered. Got the US edition of WWE12 today and the bonus blu ray is not region locked! Also it contains 2 complete episodes of Raw featuring The Rock. Thought id pass it along!

  21. james says:

    Documentary, huh? I guess that’s why Russo was on the NWO DVD. Guarantee he was brought in to do this, and they just used some extra stuff he filmed to fill out that NWO documentary. Whenever they bring in guys from outside the company, they’re usually not interviewing them for just one thing. Can’t be;ieve we don’t have a content list yet, can’t wait for this!

  22. Jonathan M says:

    I am very excited to purchasing the Attitude era DVD. If some of you are going to complain about it thats concern content and other things include it then you shouldn’t be planning on buying it. All i know is i am fine whatever WWE puts on the Attitude era DVD. I remember those days when watched Raw every monday night and record but not the whole show. I only record it when involved Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Undertaker, DX, Mcmahon and other superstars that were my favorite. I hope they will included matches like Stone cold steve Austin vs The Undertaker the night after King of the ring 1999 where austin regain the WWE championship for a 4th time. Also, i would like to see the highest Raw episode from May 10, 1999 where they had the match between Austin, Rock and Vince vs Taker, HHH and Shane with HBK as the guest referee. If i had to pick my favorite times during the Attitude era it would be from 1998 to 1999. In 1999 is when WWE was really on top and hotter during the Monday night wars when WCW was started lose the battle from there to 2001. Can’t wait the relive those moments.

  23. Daniel says:

    As long as we don’t see Zamboni 3:16, Austin vs Tyson and the usual stuff we have seen before

    • Robert says:

      I have to think that Zamboni 3:16 would definitely be there. As well as the entire Mike Tyson angle, since they did add him on the cover.

    • Dave says:

      Seeing as Tyson was practically the launching pad for the Attitude era…makes sense to be on a DVD called “The Attitude Era”.

      The Zamboni incident was fuel to the fire for Austin vs McMahon…why wouldn’t it be on?!

      I can already tell lot of people are going to bitching and moaning about the content being “repeated”…and funny thing is people keep mentioning only RAW moments and matches…just so you guys know there were also PPVs and SD as well. Another added bonus is the “repeated” content will actually be unedited with no blurs…especially matches like HIAC with Foley/Taker which is a definite lock on this set.

  24. Robert says:

    The Brawl For All? Any of you guys see Jim Cornette’s shoot on YouTube ripping that apart? Classic.

  25. Anonymous says:

    Jericho and Edge and Christian aren’t exactly the first people that come to mind when I think of the Attitude Era. The company was at its most “attitudinal” just before Jericho came in. By the time E&C got their big push, the weekly shows were kind of bland actually. Good wrestling but they had definitely settled in at that point.

  26. nightmare says:

    I;ll wait for the review before I buy this one I have the Raw one so I just have to see what’s on this set before I buy it

  27. Anonymous says:

    Oh god, the Brawl For All. I was already going to buy it, but now I’m definitely picking it up for that train wreck.

  28. Jason H says:

    I’m sure it will be the standard documentary (Mick Foley has stated he was interviewed for this) with matches format. I doubt they’ll do any 100 countdown of moments or anything like that. One thing I would love to see on here, since it’s never been released (it’s on Youtube) is the segment where Terri Runnels won the Hardcore title and then lost it to Stevie Richards. Sure, it was right at the very end of the Attitude era, but it was pretty hot, and would fit in nicely on this set. As far as matches, I’m really hoping they include Undertaker vs Foley Hell in a Cell, since it will mark the very first time that match will be released on DVD or Blu-ray uncensored in the US.

  29. KarlKayfabian says:

    Maybe there will be no matches, just “moments”.

  30. indyfan says:

    Vincenzzzzzo is a fool who thinks covers matter. Don’t pay attention to him. This set isn’t going to be as good as some have hoped. Its Raw 15th year anniversary set all over again!!!

    • Dave says:

      I see you’ve seen the content list…care to share it?

      Thats the problem with fans and people in general today…they’re pessimistic about everything, they find fault in everything instead of keeping an open mind. The content is not even out, yet your saying “the set isn’t going to be as good as some hoped”. Well, if thats how you think…then good luck to you…maybe you should get out of your parent’s basement and step outside in the real world.

      • indyfan says:

        Dave.. you replied with a pessimistic post? Good luck to you!

        • indyfan says:

          Oh yeah nice try at being witty with the parents basement comment! I actually own my own house.

          That’s the problem with Internet people like Dave, they pick up a few unoriginal comments and use them.

          IF you owned the Raw 15th year anniversary set, It has an entire disc and a half devoted to the Attitude Era.

          Stone Cold vs Vince covered check!
          HITC check its also covered on HBKs set and Takers set and the HITC set.

          Does anyone actually care about the music? I don’t!

          All the stars in the list .. Most have dvd sets on them which also cover the attitude era

          heres some optimism for ya! I hope the Bret Hart set that comes out in March will be awesome. It most likely will be since its Unreleased material.

      • Vincenzzzzzo says:

        Pay no attention to him, Dave. He’s just upset because I found a picture of him in his parents basement and I’m using it as my profile pic on this site.

  31. RabidHeat says:

    Nice to see WWE embracing their past again. I can’t believe they actually addressed the rating issue with a gag about puppies and grapefruits! Something tells me they’re gonna go controversial again now that this campaign’s over, lol.

  32. rohfan81 says:

    you tube?whats a youtube?ive been living in a cave for the past 10 years gotta love the internet asshats that think they can run people down cause they have a opinion that differs from theyre own may i suggest you losing your high and mighty attitude,and the fact that it has a documentary just makes me think that its gonna be a waste,they dont need a documentary just have three or four discs of matches and moments instead of a hr or two hrs of people who werent even there during the attitude era talking about theyre “memories”and “feelings” but hey im sure vincenzzzzzzo will have some holier than thou answer since hes the only person on here that has a opinion that matters

    • Vincenzzzzzo says:

      Actually, no. I was thinking how someone can write an entire paragraph without using a single period to seperate their sentences. Thats honestly what I was thinking….

      It’s only a DVD. Chill out.

  33. mommy says:


  34. Dave says:

    Pretty excited about this release…this will certainly be a hot seller.

  35. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    “Back when PG stood for Puppies and Grapefruits”


  36. Steven says:

    I say the Best Buy exclusive one will be selling like hot cakes and I’ll need to pre-order it or go early to my local Best Buy and buy it.

  37. Kyle Willard says:

    Yes! A Documentary! Hopefully its at least two hours. Should be great! Can’t wait for this!

  38. CrimeDawg says:

    Well I certianly am interested in this one..and I don’t think it is a coincidence that all this starts to come out AFTER the election.

  39. Rob L says:

    Any word on what the Best Buy Exclusive is? Extra disc? I’ve been buying the blu-rays for awhile now but I’m always a sucker for the exclusive versions.

    • Daniel Bee says:

      No word since the content listing isn’t available yet. At a guess probably extra content on one of the discs like the usual trend.

  40. rohfan81 says:

    the campaign is over stop pussy footing around and give us a match listing,if its like the nwo set im passing the nwo set was a total let down so i have high hopes for this one

    • Daniel Bee says:

      I’ll gladly give it to you… when I have it.

    • Vincenzzzzzo says:


      Then you better grab a box of tissues now then, because I can almost bet all the money in my pocket you STILL won’t be satisfied – no matter what is on this DVD. You let yourself down. Instead of accepting something for what it is, you have to “fantasy concept” the DVD in your head, and when the listing doesn’t match what you had in your head, people like you throw a temper fit.

      If something isn’t on a DVD and you want to see it, may I suggest youtube? You have heard of that site before, correct? They have 97% of what you want to see on there.

      • subsouljah82 says:

        All i have to say is if this set is as top notch as it seems it could be and has a great doc and plenty of good moments with a few matches mixed in(since the attitude era was about the moments and not the matches for the most part)i think people should put there money where there mouth is everyone wants a change in wwe make this the top selling dvd and maybe they will listen and get more of an edge again if not then shut up about the current product
