WWE Attitude Era Vol 3 - Host, Artwork and Commenatry Update

We have learned that the host for August’s Attitude Era Vol. 3 – Unreleased DVD and Blu-Ray will be none other than “The Savior of Misbehavior” – Corey Graves. A number of weeks ago, Graves revealed a photograph on his Instagram with barbed-wire baseball bat in hand in front of very ‘attitudinal’ backdrop — was this the setting for his segments? Check out Graves Instagram post below:

Just another day at the office… #rawpreshow #rawiswar #attitudeera #leapday

The other big question mark over the third Attitude Era DVD/Blu-ray was the commentary and will it feature any? Well, we have learned that it won’t. Just like the Best of RAW: After The Show from a couple of years ago, sadly the third installment of Attitude Era won’t feature a commentary track for these rare and unreleased matches.

Missed the trailer for Attitude Era Vol. 3 – Unreleased over the weekend? Not to worry, check it out below…


Finally (for Attitude Era Vol. 3) we have a look at the complete cover artwork for the set; including the back cover and spine…

    I’m definitely in the 1% here. I’m SOOOOO happy 1996 matches are on here. That was they year I got into wrestling I remember going to the video store and renting royal rumble wrestlemania (usually put of stock) king of the ring slamathon 96.. so I guess I’m emotionally biased but that was my first real view of wrestling was the video tapes my big brother brought home and that was actually in 1997 but he brought home 96 tapes from the video store. SO. I totally love the 96 matches great year!!

  2. martin skrtels turtle was purple says:

    Who would like a wcw nitro episode anthology.

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      you mean like they did the raw one few years ago ?? hua yeah that be cool or do like well if they did nitro they have to do THUNDER!!! and sat night cause those shows get no love anymore

  3. AD Degreez says:

    Can’t believe how gutted people are getting about 96 bring called attitude we all know it isn’t so unless you grow the grape fruits to walk up to bkk himself and tell him his company are full of s**t then just relax. I bet you aren’t as picky with pussy as you are your classifications of wrestling time periods…

    • RabidHeat says:

      Well, the last sentence of that shows what a moron you are, and I would hope gets deleted due to the offensive context of that word (much like it would’ve been in 1996 since it was before the Attitude Era – ooh, sorry for mentioning it again, Mrs – don’t hit me!)

      • AD Degreez says:

        Offended by a word so easily but attempts to attack someone’s intelligence for using said word…. But I do apologise if my comment offended anyone in Australia that word isn’t considered offensive.

        • RabidHeat says:

          So the words “sh*t” and “pu*sy” would not offend anyone in Australia? Don’t talk rubbish.

          • AD Degreez says:

            Maybe if your a pussy but who gives a s**t… But seriously both those words are not offesive in everyday Aussie language.

  4. SCSA says:

    Well the first 8 matches (Disc1) is actually packed w/matches from 1996 even though I believe that the Attitude era started in 97, either way, I can’t pass upon matches such as; Austin Vs Undertaker 96,97,99, Rock Vs Shamrock, Bret Vs Shawn Vs Sid, etc!

    I’ll surely be buying this set no matter who our host is. Too bad we’ll hav no commentary 🙁

    • Jeff Copeland says:

      the lack of commentary does hurt it but maybe for a black friday sale or christmas this might be worth a pick up. for me scott hall and hardcore title on my list right now

  5. Jeff Copeland says:

    ehhh this might be a pass or maybe black friday sale. i feel like they really went a different way with the matches. people can say OMG 96 aint attitude era bla bla get over it.

    NOW i think this should of been renamed something else so people would of not gotten there boxers in a wad but EH!

    No commentary does hurt it alot but eh, and cory graves hosting WHO CARES? striker and maria did the savage dvd in 09 and that was just almost un watchable cause of them.

    • RabidHeat says:

      Some people have different opinions to you, which is their absolute right, so YOU get over that. Phewl.

  6. SD JONES says:

    LOLz at all the people saying the Attitude Era “officially started” at a later time. Glad YOU are the authority on that! Shawn having an edge, introducing the Goldust character, Mankind being creepy, the beginning of Stone Cold… NOT ATTITUDE AT ALL! Go watch Survivor Series 1996 and tell me it’s not ‘attitude’ personified. I bet that Shawn/Goldust match is going to change all your minds… buncha dopes.

    • RabidHeat says:

      Somehow I don’t think a non-televised 1996 match between Shawn Michaels and Goldust is going to ‘big-time’ change anybody’s perceptions on anything.

      • RabidHeat says:

        And if you’re now saying the Attitude Era began in 1996, where are the 1996 matches on the first 2 sets?

    • LP1 says:

      The WWE Network lists December 15, 1997 as the first Raw of the attitude era. Same thing with The Attitude Era vol. 1 DVD. That too says it starts on December 15, 1997 when Vince does his speech about good guys and bad guys being passe. So I guess you’re calling WWE themselves a buncha dopes.

      • RabidHeat says:

        Really glad you pointed that out. :). Now nobody can dispute.

      • AD Degreez says:

        Who cares when it all started people we are getting unreleased gems we would have otherwise never seen….. That’s not a bad thing, that’s a good thing

        • LP1 says:

          Nobody is complaining about getting those matches. I’m looking forward to them. They just don’t fit the theme of this release. They should’ve given this a different name.

  7. Fong says:

    I will probably pass on this. Too many inaccuracies

  8. Damian Oliver says:

    This is one of those sets where we had expectations only for everything about it to have done a complete 180 turn. I wouldn’t pick this up even if I saw it at a local gas station for $5 years from now.

  9. LP1 says:

    People complaining about Corey Graves must not really know much about him. If you watch NXT every week you’ll know he’s one of the best color commentators in the business today. Easily better than JBL and King. He alao grew up a fan of the WWF and knows his history. And besides, even if he didn’t know his history, all these home video host segments are scripted anyway, so it wouldn’t matter. I’m very happy he’s the host.

    • Nico says:

      He wasn’t part of the Attitude Era, dude.

      • LP1 says:

        That means nothing. No matter who is hosting the show, they’re all going to be reading the same scripted material off a monitor during those segments.

        • Nico says:

          It does matter because him being a host for a DVD era he wasn’t part of pretty much sums up another inaccuracy of this set. There’s a reason Michael Cole hosted volume 2 you know. He was part of The Attitude Era. Continue to agree with everything WWE does with their dvds.

          • LP1 says:

            It’s funny, you say I agree with everything WWE does, and a couple of weeks ago I had someone tell me I complain too much about WWE. I think I’m pretty fair and honest. I call things exactly how I see it.

            • Nico says:

              In your own mind you think you’re honest and fair but still agree to everything WWE does even with the obvious inaccuracies with this set. Typical!

              • LP1 says:

                Wow. If you took 2 seconds to read just the thread on this page alone, you’ll see that I both agree and disagree with aspects of this release. Good day sir.

  10. Victory73 says:

    I actually love matches without commentary. I’d rather hear the crowd reactions to the match. It makes for a different viewing experience.

    • Mark D says:

      I kinda like it too (for a little while). What really bugs me is when I know that there is commentary of some description but it’s omitted. Like Bret Hart/Tiger Mask – Josh Matthews & Matt Striker recorded commentary for at least a chunk of the match which was uploaded on, however on Bret’s Dungeon DVD it didn’t have it. Also the recent NXT DVD; Graves and Brennan recorded commentary for Cesaro/Neville for the TV show, but there was no commentary on the DVD. That kinda irks me. Ha

  11. SCSA says:

    No Commentary?! That SUCKS!!!

    So I won’t hear JR or The King shout out… The Stone Cold STUNNER! / Oh.. SWEETCHIN MUSIC!

  12. RabidHeat says:

    So is there not one single match with commentary, or do some of the matches like the Sun Cit and Kuwait ones have it?

    • RabidHeat says:

      Sun City *

    • Mark D says:

      We haven’t had it confirmed for each and every match, however on the whole the set has no commentary track. It’s very possible a small section of matches do, but certainly not the entire set.

      • VintageSimon says:

        The Shawn Michaels vs. Steve Austin match has commentary from Jim Ross & Gorilla Monsoon, and I’m sure the other Kuwait match from the same date, along with the Yokozuna vs. The Sultan match, have commentary too.

        • Mark D says:

          It’s very possible those matches do. However having not seen the set myself yet I can’t unequivocally confirm that those three matches on this particular set have commentary.

        • Patrick Mcnamara says:

          I love this set idea,looking forward to owning theese classic matches. I have the first 2 volumes. Looking forward to the 3rd. Great choice for Corey Graves hosting it. I think NXT greatest matches volume 2 should feature some Graves matches. Sad his in ring career was cut short, glad he got a title run with the NXT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP. Along with Adrian Neville.

  13. Justin F says:

    Still annoyed by 1996 being considered a part of that era. The post Hulkmania era was 1993 – 1996 with the Attitude Era not offically starting until late 1997.

    • LP1 says:

      1993-early 1997 was the New Generation era. The Attitude era officially started in the 2nd half of 1997.

  14. John says:

    It’s unfortunate they didn’t get anyone to do commentary, but quality matches can carry themselves. I was a little worried going into the Hart-Tiger Mask II match on the Dungeon Collection (also no commentary) but it wasn’t a huge loss.

  15. RCS1988 says:

    Should be an awesome set.

  16. Jammer says:

    I am not surprised about the ‘no commentary’ thing since most of these shows were at house hows. It would have been nice if the dark matches had commentary for them. Like the In Your House events at least. It is weird that they didn’t do commentary for them in case of putting them out on DVD (or now Blu Ray) years later.

  17. Domenic Ricci says:

    Corey Graves? While I like him as a commentator, Idk if he will be a good host.

    No commentary? While it sucks, it will be nice to see these matches in their original caliber.

  18. Ruthless.Attitude.Eras.4Life says:

    I could have lived with lil Miss Young Blondie as a hostess if it really has to be some from this Twitter/”Reality”-era to try make a fresh angle to one of the 3 greatest periods of WWF. (which is not particularly necessary, since the Era speaks very much for it self).

    But, my oh my.. Cory Craves.. 🙁 Here’s to hope for excactly as few appearence as Cole had on vol. 2. But.. since there’s gonna be no commentary on many matches..I guess, I hope too much then.

    Still.. unreleased content is treasure to the collection.. gonna be RAW, I’m sure.. 🙂

  19. Battlestar says:

    No commentary is unfortunate but not unexpected.

  20. RabidHeat says:

    Corey Graves presenting on the Attitude Era? The phrase “horse’s mouth” doesn’t exactly leap to mind, but hopefully he’ll have done his research.
