Attitude Era WWE DVD 100% Confirmed – Details Soon?

October 10, 2012 by Mark D

Earlier this week and other retail sites removed the synopsis and descriptive content for the planned Attitude Era WWE DVD set. However, despite this we have learned that the upcoming Attitude Era DVD is 100% confirmed. The 3 disc DVD and 2 disc Blu-ray is still scheduled for release on November 20th 2012 [pre-order your copy now!].

We speculate that the set will have a low-key release for now given the current political events and media attention. More information on ‘The Attitude Era’ including the cover art and match listings will be coming next month!

Also following the news earlier today the set will more than likely feature un-blurred ‘scratch logos’ (read more here).

To clarify The Attitude Era DVD is 100% going ahead (don’t worry). The lack of content and a cover is not something for concern, it is coming soon. 🙂

As soon as we have more details to share, you will see them right here on WWEDVDNews. Stay tuned!

    Can November 6th get here already? 🙂

    1996-1997 and part of 1998 was just amazing for the nWo and then they tried to save it combining nWo Wolfpack and nWo Hollywood to create nWo Elite and had a nWo B-team of the Scott Norton’s and others and then the final of nWo 2000 they should cover more of nWo 2000 on the DVD I think. I still believe when I see the Attitude Era at a store on the day of it’s release I will be convinced it’s finally out and I’m hoping not a week before oh sorry it’s called off again.

    • Vincenzzzzzo says:

      I wasn’t a WCW fan at that time, but I did watch the nWo between 1996-1998. I thought the storyline was very reality based and new. When they split them up into nWo Hollywood and nWo Wolfpack….thats when I seriously couldn’t take it anymore. They watered it down as much as they possibly could have. The nWo should have been just Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, Hollywood Hogan, Syxx, Ted DiBiase, and MAYBE one or two others. Thats it.

      People like Curt Hennig and Bret Hart could have been utilized 10x better if they had been singles competitors, rather than just throwing them into the nWo. So much talent WCW had got lost in the shuffle because of it.

  3. Marty says:

    Mark, I’m suspecting after November 6th, we’ll hear LOTS about the Attitude Era DVD release. The election will be over and the nWo release will have happened, so it will be next. It was one of the hottest periods for the company. No way WWE won’t promote it, at least as much as they would other releases.

    I’m just thrilled we’re getting nWo and Attitude Era releases back-to-back. It just feels appropriate. Both of them brought me back into wrestling full-time again, I was younger and wilder then and both of them somewhat represented that wilder attitude I (and others my age) had back then, as opposed to now where we’re all raising families and such. For me, both sets back-to-back will be the ultimate nostalgia trip for those reasons. I’m looking forward to them. 🙂

    • Daniel Bee says:

      I suspect this too. 😉

    • Vincenzzzzzo says:

      I agree. I’m glad they are releasing the Attitude Era and nWo DVD’s back to back. It’s very appropriate that they’re released like this for a few reasons. They both happened at the same time and gave professional wrestling the boost it needed at the time. Very excited both are getting released, and at the same time.

      • Dave says:

        Don’t forget they want to take advantage of Christmas sales 🙂

        The perfect time to release these two sets. I’m really looking forward to the content on the Attitude era sets, curious on the format…but i suspect it will just be a collection of matches and segments with a host like the Best of Nitro.

        Plus now that WWE is allowed to show the scratch logo, this will be a must have! The blurs don’t bothering me anymore since they seem to do it right the last few years, but it will be great seeing the content the way it was suppose to be seen.

    • Mark D says:

      @Marty That’s certainly an interesting theory…. 😉

  5. Matt says:

    Thank you god!!!!! The wwe can no longer blur the wwf logo and now i can watch these wwe dvds with a little more dignity!!!

  6. Scott says:

    Whats the story with the exclusive Best Buy version? It’s no longer listed on BB’s site, but it is still there on my orders when I check my account.

  7. Joe Israel says:

    Of course, when it actually comes to reviewing this and stuff, I hope this DVD is fantastic. However…. I think this could end up being one of the more disappointing DVD’s the WWE will release. Pretty all of the great segments from the Attitude Era are already on DVD, and the segments really made the Attitude Era. For the most part, the match quality was not good at all (until the influx of all the great talents in late 99-early 00). There are, of course, exceptions, but I’ve found this to mostly be the case.

  8. Tony Kegger says:

    I might not buy it if it’s TV-PG.

  9. I do not remember where this cage on fire pic is from?? Any help @steviebreech on twitter

  10. Steven says:

    A week before “Attitude Era” hits stores they will cancelled it again, on the 20th of November and it’s at Fye, Best Buy, or Wal-Mart I will believe it’s release.

    Why make fun of Mae Young?
    She is the Hulk Hogan of women’s wrestling.
    How many women still wrestle at her age and I’m sure her ratings are up there with any Trish ever put up.

    Who’s chyna?

  13. nightmare says:

    It all depends on what on this if I will buy it or not I don’t buy this for collector items anymore I buy them to watch .

  14. Simon says:

    Wondering if this will be more like best of Raw is War (like the Nitro one) or it will contains PPV’s matches too.. Anyway a great news.. And wondering too where they will start, because everybody saying something different.. but where truly did start and will start on the dvd the Attitude Era?!? Anyway can’t wait!!

  15. Anonymous says:

    Nope 1998/99/01 Was the best portion of the A Era

  16. John says:

    2000 Was the best portion of the Attitude era for me.Mainly because of Triple H,Rock,and Angle

  17. Geolink says:

    So will this be a best of or a documentary on the Attitude Era?

  18. Anonymous says:

    Why is that cage on fire?

  19. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    Awesome. I knew they were holding back with the cover art and match listing until the election was over, just so those nasty, lying, cheating, filthy, smelly politicians couldn’t use it against them. Smart move. Very smart.

  21. wrestlingfan says:

    I hope it is censored, besides mick foley and the austin/mcmahon/rock feud the rest is garbage. WCW Nitro from 96-98 was better.

    • JasonGoldsmith says:

      agreed–way too much garbage and not enough wrestling.
      foley vs taker was a good feud and austin vs mcmahon was just classic but the rest was just a reason to switch the channel to WCW nitro.

      • wrestlingfan says:

        Foley and Taker were great storyline also, borderline porn is not wrestling

        • Vincenzzzzzo says:

          Borderline porn? Which show were you watching…?

          • Anonymous says:

            That guy was probably watching Chyna’s new porno.

          • Mark D says:

            Technically the dictonary definition of pornography is: “obscene writings, drawings, photographs, or the like, especially those having little or no artistic merit.”

            So you could argue that some of the ‘attitude era’ was obscene and did indeed lack artistic merit – thus branding it ‘pornography’.

            • Daniel Bee says:

              That’s a different kind of Fantasy Concept.

            • wrestlingfan says:

              exactly that is my point, in the 80’s wrestling was huge and did not need it. I think that in the 90’s you had talented performers and did not need to go down that road…

              • Vincenzzzzzo says:

                I think one can make the argument that not everything about the Attitude Era was good, however in the late 1990’s, professional wrestling needed that boost. With the exception of the nWo, without the Attitude Era, the explosion pro wrestling experienced during that time probably wouldn’t have happened.

                It was warfare during that time. Some of the stuff from the Attitude Era was cheesy, but I would hardly call Mae Young giving birth to a hand “borderline pornography”. Just my opinion, though.

  22. Craig says:

    I doubt this will be available in Europe till 2013 until WWE sorts out the new licence SilverVision stated nWo The Revolution and Summerslam 2012 will be their last releases

    • Harry Faversham says:

      That’s what I would like to know.

    • Anonymous says:

      Buy from Australia until then 😉

    • Scsa says:

      Its True! With Silvervision down with no more new WWE DVD’s/BLU-RAY’s, I guess we won’t be able to purchase this title (the one I’ve really been waiting for)! Even on Play n Amazon, I guess they probably got all their WWE stock from SILVERVISION 🙁

      Can ne 1 shed ne light on this subject in time for the ‘Attitude Era’ set?
