What a difference a day makes.
Yesterday we confirmed four new WWE DVDs for 2020, all for upcoming Pay-Per-Views, but today we have news on the addition of not one but two collections to this year’s schedule!
It has been a minute since we had an announcement like this, but today, EXCLUSIVELY here at WrestlingDVDNetwork.com, we have the details of a brand new WWE DVD feature set (say it with us: non-PPV!) due for release this summer: “Best Main Events of the Decade: 2010-2020”.
The two-disc DVD set will be hitting stores worldwide beginning mid-August.
Below is the official synopsis for the compilation, which includes some indication of some of the matches that will be highlighted. In theory, there may also be some crossover with the content of the recent WWE Network “Best of” collections, which were: The Best RAW Matches of the Decade and The Best SmackDown Matches of the Decade.
WWE: Best Main Events of the Decade: 2010-2020 (DVD)
The last decade in WWE was filled with some of the most breathtaking, epic main events in history.
Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker battled in the emotional Streak vs. Career match. The Rock and John Cena clashed in a battle of generations that we never thought we would see. Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns faced off in the main event of WrestleMania 31, but neither man left with the championship!
Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks made history in first ever women’s Hell in a Cell match. And history was made again when women main evented WrestleMania for the first time, as Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair, and Becky Lynch battled to take home all the gold. Plus many more epic main events featuring Triple H, Seth Rollins, AJ Styles, Braun Strowman, Drew McIntyre, and more.
WWE’s “Best Main Events of the Decade: 2010-2020” will be released first to the United Kingdom on August 10th, 2020 and the next day, August 11th, to the United States. An Australian release date is expected to be announced shortly.
That’s not all for the non-PPV additions revealed today for the 2020 WWE Home Video schedule — also now on the line-up is a UK exclusive 9-DISC BOX SET of the Attitude Era!
“Attitude Era: The Complete Collection” will combine the individual 2012, 2014 and 2016 releases from the “Attitude Era” DVD series into a stacked box set that will be housed in brand new packaging; get your first look at the planned cover artwork below.
Relive the full match listings for the original Attitude DVDs here: The Attitude Era, Attitude Era Vol. 2 and The Attitude Era Vol. 3: Unreleased.
“Attitude Era: The Complete Collection” will be released to the United Kingdom in late September. The on-shelf price should be around the £19.99 – £24.99 mark.

I think this is a better DVD idea.
A lot of people don’t realize when the Attitude Era actually started.
It actually started in the late 70’s / early 80’s.
1995 is when the new generation Attitude Era started technically, not 1996, nor 1997.
You really should know wrestling history before judging.
A few Nanes involved originally in the real first days of Attitude Era days of the 70’s / 80’s are…
Terry Funk, Abdullah The Butcher, King Kong Bundy, etc.
Ok, whatever you’re on, I want one.
So is the Attitude Era boxset the premium release?
If there’s potentially something new also coming in Q4 2020, then no, there could be another. I don’t have it confirmed yet though.
Why is Yokozuna and the ultimate warrior on the cover of an attitude era dvd boxset?!
Because they’re in the content of the third set, though I agree they shouldn’t be as 1996 is generally NOT considered to be part of the era at all. Okay, so the Austin 3.16 speech took place at KotR and I guess you had Goldust being a bit weird. But yeah, seeing them on the cover of an A.E. set is really jarring.
Made it even more obscure and irrational with the 1996-reference in the third volume of Attitude Era, when WWE descided to put out the 1997: Dawn of the Attitude Era. -lol-
Yeah I know, the very definition of a contradiction, lol.
I’m sorry to be such a downer on what is supposed to be good news and that WDN clearly seem excited about, but seriously? They have ONE opportunity to release a non-PPV title, and this is what they go with? A TWO-DISC set that will clearly contain many previously released (and I imagine mostly PPV) main event matches? You say non-PPV release, but it’s still basically a PPV compilation with nothing new. DVD is quite niche now due to streaming, meaning that DVDs are probably more aimed at the collector market than ever before, so they release a set full of matches that collectors already own?
It does make sense in one way: this has clearly taken little effort, which makes sense in money-saving terms for WWE if DVDs we not selling well anyway i.e. to not pay their team to spend time and research creating an interesting set. But I have to say, I’ve never been more disappointed upon clicking into an article after reading such a promising headline. No offence to WDN, but come on WWE, throw us a god-damned bone.
There was the chance, because it was the original plan early in the year, WWE would only release new PPVs as their DVDs so this update confirmed a small but nice change.
It came after revealing Q3 plans a day prior which looked to be all PPVs.
A DVD like “Best Main Events of the Decade”, or other match compilation, was basically what they were doing – whether feature or Superstar – before the schedule turned PPV only (besides maybe Piper Unreleased with a bit more to it), so it’s a turnaround and a realistic release if we’re being honest with ourselves.
You mention one chance/opportunity but it could be more than one since we heard about a possible ‘premium’ title in Q4 which we mentioned on Wednesday. That may happen, and it may be something you enjoy.
Thanks for the explanation, I did think we were saying these were the only two non-PPV releases, so that’s good news at least. I fully expect the other release to be ‘WWE 24: Best of 2020’, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
Pretty disappointed that the new UK release is just a re-issue of some older titles. But not that surprised that they do that.
On the Best of set, I’m curious as to what the final content is. Some of the matches in the preview have fairly long chapters to them. Taker/Michaels is over 40 minutes and if they go with the first Cena/Rock match, that’s over 50 minutes. Seems like not much matches for two discs.
I hope they do a 2nd volume of WWE Unreleased 1986-1995. The first set did so well.
Man I second RCS1988’s idea! Here’s another one- if they release the Undertaker documentary series on dvd how about add unreleased matches as extras? That’s too cool of an idea to do for them! Volume 1 of unreleased 86-95 sold well so why not do volume 2?
In my opinion they released an Volume 2 already but as vol.3 in the Attitude Era Collection…
WWE Unreleased 1986-1995 DVD
WWE Unreleased Attitude Era Vol.3 1996-2000 DVD/Blu-ray
Well that’s a letdown. The Best Of The 2010s is gonna be all matches that most people already have, and the Attitude Era set is just a re-release with new packaging.
Nothing to see here, folks.
The Attitude Era set would be cool if US/Canada got this to oh well least we got something new
Doubtful so I don’t know why I’m suggesting it, but since we’ll be getting miscellaneous releases here and there, it would be nice if we can get releases of past big 4 events whether it be similar to the individual WrestleMania releases we got in 2013 or a new anthology set (this one is especially doubtful, which is why I mentioned the first.) And obviously updated without blurs or audible edits to the WWF name.
I know the UK recently got re-released of WrestleMania 15, 17, 18, 19, but I’m mainly referring to those in the U.S. who would definitely want that.
the former might be a neat way to have lots of great matches in one place.
and the latter will be cool for all those that don’t yet own the previous sets.
The Attitude Era set is great for those that never added them to collection in the first place, although some of the bluray extras on the individual releases are gold.
And the book that was coming for a limited time with vol. 3 at wwedvduk was a worthy extra addition compared with these boring trading cards these days.
That “Best Main events of the decade” is yet another example in the list of recent years low-fi philosophy from WWE regarding physical releases..the purpose of this is nothing more than to be an extednded sample for the 9.99’er.. business wise problaly an okay idea..from a collectors perspective, at least this collector: release non-grata.
Guess, the Deadman’s Last Ride will be The One..in Twenty and One, aka: next year. Hopefully!
Possibly since The Monday Night War series came out on home video a year after it was on the network.
BAS: and then they could also throw the Ruthless Aggression series out on the release market.. I was not very impressed with the first 5 episodes besides some of the Lesnar episode, but the juicy ruthless aggressive stuff is (hopeful) coming in the 5 final episodes in the fall/winter.
I hope both of these sets do really well and they realise that they need to bring out non PPV DVDs again
