Just last week we broke news of the nWo WWE DVD, yesterday WWE Brock Lesnar DVD and today we can reveal that another title planned for release this year is… WWE The Attitude Era!
The set is scheduled for release in late November or early December and will be available on DVD and Blu-ray, just in time for Christmas. 😉
This one has been rumoured for most of this year with Mick Foley and Booker T revealing they have been interviewed for the release.
At the moment we don’t have details on the number of discs, but we hope to have much more information; including its confirmed release date in the coming weeks.
I want to see Triple H and Stone Cold Steve Austin vs Kane and The Undertaker for all the titles!
I was looking at some matches that people were talking about and I love the great ideas everyone has put in for this set, Idk if anyone has put this match but i’d like 2 see Mankind Vs. Big Show in a Boiler Room Brawl at Backlash 1999 even though it was short it was a very good match
I’m not sure if whether the Attitude era had started at this point, though I would like to see the match between the WWF Champion Bret Hart & The Undertaker at the Royal Rumble in 1996. This match had outside interference from Diesel too!
I’d also love to see a D’Lo Brown vs Val Venis match included. They had really cool matches.
The suggestions such as Mark D’s are awesome – hopefully WWE brings what we crave. 🙂
Any1 have ne more good matches in mind for this ser?
What about Rock and Sock connection vs Undertaker and Big Show for the tag team titles it was on a Smackdown in 1999. I always want X-Pac vs Owen Hart king of the ring 1998.
Yeah, I’d love to see the Owen Hart Vs X- Pac match! They were good in the ring!
I think to tell the true story of the Attitude Era they should include a range of different matches, such as:
Montreal (start of the Era)
Bossman/Road Dogg, Hardcore Title Jan 99
Sable/Jaqueline, Bikini Contest
Nation/DX Street Fight
Austin/Taker Fully Loaded 99
Cactus vs Chainsaw Feb 98
Brawl for All Final
Vince McMahon Hunantiarian of Year
Rock vs X-Pac Jul 98 (where the woman exposes herself in crowd)
Jerry Lawler Interviews Val Venis & John Wayne-Bobbit
Tag Title 4 Corners Match – Taker/Austin vs Mankind/Kane vs Outlaws vs Rock/Owen
Edge & Gangrel vs Animal & Droz (where Hawk falls from Titantron)
DX Impersonates The Corporation
Foley/Rock, Empty Arena Match,
Patterson & Brisco vs Mean Street Posse
Taker/Shane/HHH vs Vince/Rock/Austin, Special ref HBK
CEO Steve Austin at Titan Tower
Ivory vs. Torri, Hardcore Match
Evening Gown in Pool, Armageddon (unedited!)
Mark Henry vs. Crash Holly (Mae gives birth)
Rock vs. Triple H, Iron Man
Rock vs. Austin, WMX7 (the end of the era)
Yeah, the Hardcore title match between Road Dogg n Boss Man was a great match in 99. So was the Corporate Rumble.
Agree! I was actually gonna include that match in my next wishlist beleive it or not!
RAW 1997: Owen Vs Bulldog
Austin Vs Bret = Street Fight
RAW 1999: Rock Vs Mankind = WWF Title (Corporation/D-X at ringside, return of Austin)
SMACKDOWN 1999: Rock Vs Triple H w/HBK as S.ref = WWF Title
Y2J’s COUNTDOWN in to the WWF
Survivor Series: Y2J Vs Chyna = IC Title
SMACKDOWN: Rock ‘n’ Sock Vs Outlaws = WWF Tag Titles
I know this probably won’t happen but I’d like to see the Radicalz & DX vs. Rock, Cactus, Too Cool & Rikishi match from Raw in early Feb 2000. To me that match summed up ‘the Attitude Era’ with the feeling that anyone can beat anyone at anytime (something which is sadly missing nowadays!). I know it includes Benoit, but they could remove all references to him and also that match was included on the recent WWE.com article about Raw’s 50 Greatest Matches. *fingers crossed*
It’s a longshot if they even mention Chris Benoit’s name. I seriously doubt his name will ever be heard again in a DVD or video game or anything.
Yes, it would be great to show a few of Benoitx matches 🙂 Especially the match at Wrestlemania 2000 (16): Benoit Vs Angle Vs Y2J in a two falls triple threat match = IC/European title.. That was my favourite matche that night.
WWE better show the Radicalz and Chris Benoit.
also can’t leave out the rock vs triple h i quit match and the rock vs triple h ironman match.
Yes, as well as these matches;
D-X PPV: Austin Vs Rocky Maivia = IC Title
Shamrock Vs Michaels = WWF Title
RR 1998: Shamrock Vs Rock = IC Title
Shawn Vs Taker = WWF Title in Casket match
WM14: HHH Vs Owen Hart = European Title
Unforgiven 1998: Taker Vs Kane = Inferno
St.Val: Owen & Jeff Vs D-Lo & Mark = Tag Titles
(Corp) Kane & Chyna Vs (D-X) HHH & X-Pac
Wrestlemania 15: Kane w/Chyna Vs Triple H
Shane McMahon Vs X-Pac = European Title
Backlash 99: Ministry Vs Brood = 6 Man-Tag
Triple H w/Chyna Vs X-Pac
Please WWE Put Stone Cold vs Mankind vs Triple H From Summerslam On This DVD.
An important piece of wrestling history. Hopefully it has everything that I remember seeing of that era.
Id like to c the match between shamrock n billy gunn too for the ic title
This was the 1 from the Royal Rumble in 1999.
There was a match from Raw where Billy Gunn get screwed out of the Ic titles against Shamrock beacuase of the Commissionner Michaels, if you do remember 😛
hope wwe finally puts on stone cold vs undertaker from judgement day. and team wwe vs team alliance from invasion on this set.
I hope WWE will get this one right. Can’t wait until it is released. This year is a very darn good year TNG S1 BD in 9 days and this one by Christmas.
To the person who watches classic RAW’s on WWE Classics, I watch them too. Once in awhile I still hear WWF during the show.
I hope they also show;
-More things relating to the KLIQ from start to finish,
-Full D-X visits to WCW via the Army Jeep
-Attitude era actually lasted up to 2001 so this would also include the Triple H/Austin fued which wasnt all that after Austin gettin run over but they had a good match later Upon Austins return.
Last Attitude Era matches had to of hav been at WM17 – Austin Vs Rock / HHH Vs Taker! As you may have noticed in the Undertaker streak DVD set, there are xtras of ‘match packages’ – Well I’d love to c the one at WM17 of ROCK n AUSTIN with the real ‘My Way’ music! Thats my favorite build up of all time!!!
This might give the now 3rd place of the most commented posts of the nWo a run for its money. I will pre-order this and the nWo glad to see stuff from the glory days of wrestling into DVD’s.
I can’t wait for this set even though there will be a lot of blurring and ww… I still wouldn’t mind it I just hope the set will have a TV 14 or higher lable cuz if it’s any lower like the current TV PG stuff it just wouldn’t be the Attitude era we grew up with
I hated the Attitude Era because DX, Stone Cold, Rock, and whoever else would make fun of me. I’m Michael Cole damnit, I’m the voice of WWE and don’t you forget that JR. Thanks to all the Vintage fans out there, oh wait it’s only 12 other people that are fans of myself.
Nobody likes you Vintage jackass and I would rather have Don West as an announcer than you pal.
You are so right HumanTorch18 and I can’t even standing his announcing it’s so bad and awful makes my ears bleed. Bring back JR or Don West.
Look at this jerk saying my commentating is bad who do you think you are mister, I’m the voice of the WWE and who is Don West some second rate announcer that lost his job because of Mike Tenay come on Get the Tables, I’m a hall of famer 2013 Cole Cole Cole!
Stop using multiple nicknames to talk to yourself here. It’s embarrassing. Next time it’s a ban because you’re making useless comments on the board.
Don’t be too happy..It will be full of blurring and ww..beep
You don’t know of it will be blurring and beeps but I hope not because the Attitude Era was balls to wall wild.
can’t forget stone cold getting the wwe title back on raw vs undertaker.
I want the Raw where DX were searching for the Undertaker, Sable binki contest and evening gown match, any Stone Cold/Vince moment, plus ton of DX moments.
Matches/moments I want to see in this set;
Royal Rumble 1997
HBK Vs HHH = Funny match 4 European title
TYSON JOINS D-X
Shawn michaels Vs Stone cold = WM14
X-PAC / OUTLAWS JOIN D-X
FUEDS BETWEEN D-X N THE NATION
The Deadly Game tournament = Rock wins
Maybe you don’t agree with all the above, but tell me what other matches/moments are you hoping to see in there?
Why would WWE put a 1 hour royal rumble match on their?They already released the anthology
The HHH/HBK European title match is in like 5 other DVD’s
Tyson/Austin already on other DVD’s
Tyson joins DX already on the DX 06 dvd
Already on like 3 other DVD’s
X-pac already on another DVD
EVERY single thing u listed is on another DVD
Yet u marks will whine about repeats
Im not whining about repeats… Im only mentioning some of my favorite matches & moments which would look good together on 1 set.
+ I dont remember seeing X-Pac or the Outlaws joining D-X on a Blu-Ray which are the only sets I buy.
The 1997 rumble match – reffering to the final four-Austin screwing Bret Hart.
Who cares if the HBK/HHH match only lasted like 5mins? It was still a match I’d like to see! + they could add it as an extra.
It looks like ur the 1that whines! U didnt say ne thing about the other matches/moments I mentioned?
– Nation/Dx fued, Austin/Mcmahon fued, The Deadly Game tournament…?
The HBK/HHH match is only on Best of Raw 15th Anniversy, scsa does have a point on the Deadly Games Survivor Series 1998 because that Survivor Series set only went to 1995 or 1996.
True, since that was The Rocks night to his first WWF Championship! + it was great how Austin came running in later after the match beating the rock up n throwin the belt at him!
This will be great, might beat out nWo as the DVD of the year but I love the nWo also so it will be close.
Best news i heard from this site all year
They got to put the Evening Gown match of Sable vs Luna because that helped the Era so much.
Sable not only was extremely hot and sexy but she had class. Attitude Era Sable beats out Kelly Kelly or Eve right now.
Even if its an xtra, I hope they put on the match 4 the European title where HBK lost it to HHH – that match was funny!
I remember watching this, the Coverated European title lol, Triple H told Sarge I did it lol.
I bet WWE will have a TLC match on it, probably TLC 2.
They should do the documentary if they do one like they did Greatest Star’s of the 90’s. First people they talk about should be DX and end with Stone Cold, the two biggest stars of this era.
That is how they should do this DVD because everyone knows DX and Stone Cold were the 2 reasons WWE exploded during the Attitude Era, huge credit to them. If it wasn’t for them Cena never would be as big as he is.
I grew up during the Attitude Era and what an Degerante I was copying DX’s moves and their attitude lol. I will get this and it should be great.
Some matches I hope will be on the set.
DX vs The Nation street fight from the raw before Summerslam 98
Six pack challenge from Unforgiven 99
Triple H vs The Rock Ironman match,even if its on Blu Ray
Rock Vs Austin steel cage match from the night after Wrestlemania 17
The Attitude era has plenty of good stuff.so hope they bulk it with good matches.Plus a decent amount of 01 stuff since 2001 is technically still part of the attitude era
Well i hope they also add more from the Austin/McMahon fued 😉
I noticed this during the casket match of HBK vs Taker if you pause it early when HBK is coming out with DX, this woman in the nose bleed seats flashes the camera, when Brett Mix was still the reviewer here he didn’t even acknowledge that or mention it.
I was referring to My Jounrey because it has the Royal Rumble 1998 match of Shawn vs Undertaker and Shawn vs Bulldog One Night Only, Heartbreak and Trumiph talks some about DX. I saw on the Superstar collection that it will have matches from his final run in WWE.
Agree, though it was quite fun watching D-X facing the Nation & the Corporation too!
As for the D-X times on HBK’s DVD, are you reffering to Shawn Michael: Heartbreak and Triumph DVD or the New Superstars DVD for HBK? Its really annoying that, that new Superstars DVD for Shawn wont b coming out in the UK 🙁
That would be awesome in WWE 13 a reformed DX, hopefully it will have all of them. The DX of the 1997 till Shawn’s back injury was my favorite but when Triple H took over it was good but not the same for me. When they got back together in 2006 some moments were funny some wasn’t. At least for now we have HBK’s DVD of some of classic DX and YouTube.
I agree with Deadpool12, and I’ve always been hoping that D-X would form back together someday like they were in the 90’s 🙂 n since they’re all said to be in WWE13, hell I would love it if they re-formed D-Generation X once again! It would sure as hell put me back in to watching wrestling again! I only look for the 90’s time Blu-Rays now!
I was a huge fan of DX during the Attitude Era and hoping they including the DX split and where Shawn was trying to find Undertaker lol.
Glad to see there is still DX fans out there and Scsa is one of them and myself. DX was amazing big credit to Shawn, Triple H, and Chyna. Hell even Rick Rude for a short time.
I hope they include all the things HHH & HBK did whilst in D-X with Chyna n Rick Rude by their side + 1 thing I’ve never seen on Blu-Ray which is when D-X impersonated not only just the Nation of Domination, but also the Corporation!
Also all the Monday night wars of RAW and Nitro 🙂
I cannot wait for this one!! This will be amazing and could be an easy contender for DVD of the year!!
Thankfully I have pretty much every show the WWE produced during that time, converted from VHS to DVD. This is going to be nothing more than a blur and edit fest, knowing how the WWE does their DVD’s.
Besides, they probably won’t show too much more besides Austin, Rock, Mankind, DX, Kane and The Undertaker anyways, and they’ve released that stuff a million times over already.
This will be good folks, I think it will be done right no blurred stuff on boobs, or middle fingers or other shit.
Yea this one I will wait and see what the reviews are here before I get it thanks .I have The best of raw and the other raws as well
Yeah this will be a blurred nightmare. I really wish this wasn’t coming out on Blu Ray because that means I have to buy it. You’re much better off sticking with the Best of Raw 1 & 2, and importing Tagged Classics. Until they can start showing this stuff without the blurs and edits, there is no point in releasing something thats just gonna piss people off.
I say this truthfully: I shall be picking up this set 100% because I didn’t live through that era, and I’ve never had enough enthusiasm to find the resources on Youtube individually. A DVD for this era is right up my street.
I might get this just because… I technically don’t need it seeing as I have all episodes of RAW IS WAR from 97-99 and the entire 99 season of Smackdown and Sunday Night Heat. Not to mention all of the PPV’s I have recorded on VHS that dates back from the late 80’s to late 2002. I’m pretty much set no blurs on anything classic WWF logo and all.
I’ve already got all of the attitude era PPV’s on the tagged classics DVD’s, plus most of the major Raw moments too (nearly all unblurred). This DVD will probably be a watered down version with blurring all over the place and annoying sidebars, so I’ll give this a miss.
The most entertaining era in WWE by far.. hopefully this dvd will help some of this PG era “Universe” realize just how good WWE was when they went balls to the wall and weren’t afraid to push the envelope.
With the nWo, CM Punk, Brock Lesnar and The Attitude Era, this year is shaping up to be one of the best
The only good things that ecw ever did was RVD amazing wrestler and show off Elektra’s hot ass, she was banging sexy but not a Chyna or Sable or Trish sexy.
At GhostRider4 I can’t wait for this DVD/Blu-Ray should be amazing. I’m sure guys like Austin, HBK, Triple H, Rock, and others didn’t think how big the Attitude Era was, it was huge so much better than that ecw crap. Ecw was just for shock value and holy shit moments where the Attirude Era was well thought out and it worked.
Like this if you are pumped for this Attitude Era DVD/Blu-ray.
Christmas going to be great with nWo set and now the Attitude Era set. I be watching classic nWo and DX moments.
Even this Jersey dude was an Attitude Era fan, I can’t even watch WWE now of days,miss the glory days of the Attitude Era.
If you didn’t like the Attitude Era get the fuck out then pal. Best time to be a wrestling fan and a great family show for all the fans.
This will be the second best DVD of the year behind the nWo one but still will be good.
YES repeat o mania!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hope everything is not blurred out, it was part of the era pal, I sound like Shawn Michaels right there Yes! Yes! Yes! The Attitude Era was the right thing to do Vince good call and this DVD should be tv-14 or rated R not for Edge but restricted, hide the Little Jimmy’s Cena, I don’t think he would’ve survived during this Era.
I hope this will be done great, start with the innovators of the Attitude Era, Shawn Michaels. Austin, DX, Rock, Jericho, and others but I hope they won’t add any dumb/stupid moments from the Attitude Era most of the memories/moments for me are DX, Austin/Vince, Rock, Y2J, Test vs Shane, Sable and the Divas, hell in the cell, and other good moments unlike Mae Young giving birth to a hand like what the fuck is that.
I 200% agree with you Captain America, DX and nWo both were my favorites and now were getting a DVD on them from the best Era to be a wrestling fan. One person who hated the Attitude Era was Brett Mix, he hated that Shawn Michaels and DX was owing Bret Hart on the mic and in the ring.
They could do a full chapter on DX, start with the formation of DX and included all their wild moments like the time Shawn triple H and Chyna were searching for Taker and they find a hurse and those girls popped out, jr said well obviously that’s not the Undertaker lol. Add the DX split too.
I hope it will have many DX moments on it and this is great first nWo and now this.
Hope we get Austin’s End of an Era, KOR Ladder Match and Over the Edge 1998 matches as well as Halftime Heat and the Raw Inferno Match. And some Goldust stuff incl. promos and the new years
‘s baby skit with Austin. And dozens of The Rock’s promos incl. the Armageddon 2000 enemies promo – that would be a must buy.
I watch the old Monday Night RAW shows on WWE Classics On Demand, and they actually do a very good job with blurring things. It’s hardly noticable, actually. Hopefully the blurring won’t be an issue with this release either.
Now THIS is going to be full of repeats.
I hope this set doesn’t focus on RAW only, as many posts seem to assume. There are plenty of great, unreleased ppv matches from this era as well, such as the Final Four match, 6-pack challenge, and the Rock/Triple H Ironman match.
Its guna be good, i just hope they make a deal with the WWF pandas in court where they can request to not have the dvd blurred out etc, they can sort of make a agreement where they can mute out WWF when any says WWF and just have the big WWE block logo present at the bottom left screen instead of the scratch logo and leave everything else untouched no blurring on the turnbuckles, shirts, camera men etc,
I would happily buy it like that but i am guna hold for a while when its released.
I think the court should have done that in the first place when they made the agreement instead of having everything blurred and runining archive footage they should have made a agreement with wwe to have all wwf mentions muted out and the big wwe logo present at the bottom left sreen like for the old footage from the 80’s and early 90’s, then dvds would have not have been half ruined with blurring all over the place, imagine what the wrestlemania anthology would have been like from wrestlemania 14-18 hey?
I just hope they make a agreement somehow,
but i just highly doubt and wwe wont bother knowing what they are like and will just blur everything but if that is the case they better do a good job on the blurring, how horrendous was the wrestlemania 17 anthology blurring dreadful but i have the original version luckily.
If everything is good then this will sell loads!!
I’m VERY curious as to what a documentary about this era would be like. Should be an interesting doc. However, I am somewhat concerned that this DVD about the quality of the matches on the set. As I’ve gone back and watched old Attitude Era shows, I’ve discovered that outside of the 6 guys that were main eventing in this time period, the undercard matches usually were not very good. There could end up being a lot of stinkers on the set, even if they are fun to go back and revisit.
Good points Joe. Looks like this could be another pass/fail situation. Hopefully this set is not filled to the brim with The Headbangers Vs. Hardcore Holly and Al Snow.
How are they going to do this when half of the video is blurred out due to the WWF scratch logo ban??? This would have been awesome prior to the ban!
Great concept but the blurring will be ridiculous.
Things just keep getting better and better…
I absolutely cannot wait for this release. Especially on blu-ray.
@srb WHAT! So the Bret vs. Shawn DVD and the Austin documentary werent good DVDs? Why?
Bret/HBK was the DVD of last year without question. The in-depth, real life aspects of that DVD probably will never again be replicated on a set. As far as Austin, I think I’m the only one on this set who wasn’t too impressed with that DVD. But, I personally was never as big of an Austin fan as others are/were. The documentary on that DVD was great, but the matches were pretty poor in my view.
Last year I was pretty disapointed with WWE and their choice of releases. I felt like we really didnt get anything great. This year I have been very satasfied and very surprised. This year we are suppossed to get NWO, Rock/Cena, Attitude, Lesnar, 50 Finishers, and Punk and have already gotten Clash of the Champs, ECW, Falls Count Anywhere and The Rock. WWE is digging much deeper than they did last year and they deserve some credit. I always try to speak the truth and this year WWE has done an excellent job. And with the Attitude Era, it could easily be 4 discs.
Before anyone starts saying “But they released many attitude sets in the past” that is true but the content in the releases were pretty much the same thing but with this new set they can add lots of unreleased classics only the other day did I know that The Rock/Austin had a RAW match in 99!! The attitude era has only had a partial release this one needs to dig into the 00 content more because 15th anniversary DVD was shocking for 00/01/02 (02 not attitude era but still shocking)
Finally! … Good news of a Great DVD/BLU-RAY set to my ears!!! I can’t wait!!! I hope its a 3/4 BLU-RAY SET!!! 😉
25% of the screen will be blurred at at any given time, why they never just offered the panda a chunk of money is beyond me
Because it doesn’t work like that in the real world. WWE can’t just pay Pandas money to use the initials. WWE lost in court and the right to use the WWF logo and initials. If anything they would have to go back to court with the Pandas to appeal.
WWE and Vince were the ones that broke their original agreement back in 1994. Also in 2002 when the judge gave Vince two options – 1) continue using the logo but pay the pandas royalties or 2) change the logo and name.
like I said, pay the money – it COULD have been that easy
It will be the most blurred dvd of all time.
I’m so glad, I was starting to worry that the Attitude concept had morphed into the Falls Count Anywhere set as a finished product!
I recall someone on this site way back in January boldly predicted Attitude as the WWE DVD release for before Christmas 2012…. 😉
Finally… I have been waiting for this. Even though I didnt watch wrestling during the attitude era, I just caught the end of it and from what I saw and have seen so far, I want more
It should be like the Best of RAW sets. 1993 and 1994 got its own four disc set. 1997 and 1998 totally warrant the same. That could be Vol. 1, and 1999-2001 could be Vol. 2!
Yea if it’s TV-14 and more than 3 disc your right just have to wait and see .
Oh Hell Yeah!
If done correctly, and at least being a TV-14 rating, it could be one of the best ever.
I think given the number of TV-14 releases over the past year or two it’s a given that this will also be rated TV-14.
