The year was 1997… Bill Clinton was president of the United States, pop groups like the Backstreet Boys and the Spice Girls were dominating the music charts, and WWE was experiencing an era of great transformation. It was the birth of attitude and WWE was pushing the limits of entertainment like never before.

For the first time ever, Shawn Michaels, Mick Foley, Ron Simmons, The Godfather, and Kane, sit together with host Renee Young and share their behind-the-scenes experiences during those unforgettable years in WWE history.

WWE look to be closing out their Home Video schedule this year with the Survivor Series 2017 DVD, which has been scheduled for December 26th, two months after “30 Years of Survivor Series”.

With the new NXT DVD/Blu-ray recently re-scheduled from December to November 2017 there was some speculation that WWE might release another 3-disc title before the year was out, but it appears that the move was not made with the motive of adding another title in December.

Now we know the last one of 2017 the next WWE DVD we announce will be the first of 2018!

    I figured they would do one of those Best PPV Matches of 2017 as the December release. Correct me if I’m wrong, but this would be the first year without it since its inception?

    • RabidHeat says:

      The 2014 edition wasn’t released in the US I believe, but the UK got it. It is strange that we haven’t heard anything about a Best PPV Matches 2017 release yet.

  2. Deckystrikesback says:

    I contacted about a WWE Annual 2017 DVD. They said it is no longer planned as retailers such as Asda HMV and Amazon have to show interest and they have not this year.

  3. Sean says:

    Dawn of the Attitude match listing blows big time. I ain’t shelling out money when wwe insults the fan’s intelligence like that.

    I spit in the face of people who don’t wanna be cool.

  4. Brandon vendetta says:

    Like WWE was going to have another set come out in December to replace the NXT set. Please, come on people did you really think that was going to happen?? The only thing they are consistent on is disappointment.

  5. Ashley says:

    For the unreleased set coming out tommorrow, where (in US) is the best place to purchase? Price, special deals, freebies? Thanks

  6. Robert emons says:

    Well that blows no 3 disc set in december wow! :/

  7. Anthony says:

    I was hoping a AJ Styles Blu ray was going to be released in December.

  8. Eric says:

    The matches in the set are excellent. I know the stuff on the Attitude Era is on the network now, but I want that blu ray and I have mine preordered.

  9. Corey C. says:

    I have heard a lot of great things about the iron woman match from NXT fans. I find it amusing that it’s finally surfaced for collectors on a fan pack, of all things.

    • Corey C. says:

      P.S. Kind of related. What do you think of Sasha’s 4 transitional championship reigns, unable to successfully defend the title? That’s got to be a record. I don’t know how to feel about it, the first 3 helping to advance a feud with Charlotte and the latest one as a fill-in for Bailey at SummerSlam. Reminds me of Hulkamania’s treatment of the Macho Man in a way.

      • LP1 says:

        It’s called horrible booking. The length of a title reign is always more impressive than how many times you won it. Winn the title 100 times is nowhere near as impressive as holding the title for nearly 8 years straight, like Bruno did. WWE has really done a number on Sasha and Bayley with how they’ve been booked. If you would’ve told me a couple of years ago that Bayley would be getting booed on Raw, I wouldn’t believe it. Good job WWE.

        • Corey C. says:

          Sasha losing would make more sense if she was an underdog. Bailey has a lot of similarities with John Cena, colorful gimmick and never give up attitude, could go somewhere if pushed correctly. I don’t think booking is concerned about telling stories or elevating talent right now. Seems WWE is trying too hard to make wrestling unpredictable. It would help to have more championships on RAW and Smackdown. That way, talent is not being pushed too fast, too soon and alleviate large roster difficulties in giving wrestlers something meaningful to do.

          • LP1 says:

            I think there’s too many championships right now as it is. No need for 2 Women’s titles? 2 Tag titles and 2 World Titles. I would have the IC Title be the main title on Raw and the US Title be the main title on Smackdown. Then I would have one World, Women’s and Tag Team champions thay can defend on either brand. Like the old travelling NWA World Champions back in the day. Makes the titles more important and special.

            • LP1 says:

              More titles makes the current titles less prestigious.

              • SRB says:

                I feel like we aren’t ever going to return to a day when titles were prestigious or meaningful. Today, it’s about quick changes to keep people guessing. Titles are meaningless without a doubt.

                • LP1 says:

                  When they unified the WWE Title and World Heavyweight Title a few years ago, I thought that made the championship much more meaningful. Today it’s like everyone gets “their turn” with a championship. That’s not the way it’s supposed to be. Only the best of the best should be champions. If there were still only 1 World Champion we wouldn’t be stuck with ridiculous Jinder as champion.

            • Mike says:

              I couldn’t agree more

            • Corey Chance says:

              Consider me a whippersnapper because I have no idea what NWA was like at that time but it sounds wonderful in retrospect. If RAW and Smackdown had 1 additional title each in today’s product, like the European and Hardcore Championships, it would address expanding roster sizes on each brand. Keeping these titles in the lower_mid card bracket should reduce tarnishing the lineage and image of the big belts. Though I know what you mean, “If everyone’s a champion, no one is.”

              I wish not all the titles have to be defended at every PPV where every bout has to be tied to a coveted prize. Solving this will help championship issues. I am glad we can disagree on something XD!

              • LP1 says:

                They already have a United Kingdom championship and do almost nothing with it. No need for a European title. Besides, the old European Title was pretty pointless. 99% of the title changes took place in North America. And the Hardcore Title wasn’t taken seriously by anyone. It was more of a joke belt, with Crash Holly running through amusement parks defending the title and things of that nature. It was funny, but it wasn’t a serious title. There’s already the World & Universal Title for the main eventers and the IC & US Title for the mid-carders. The lower card guys don’t need a championship. Because they’re lower card guys. The whole idea of a championship is to work your way up the ladder before you finally win a title.

            • Todd Cash says:

              Titles are nothing more than props these days bro…

        • Corey C. says:

          It’s long title reigns people remember. It’s a great way of recalling an era in wrestling. Crash Holly’s Hardcore Championship runs and Kane’s one day win over Stone Cold are exceptions too this. Austin losing the belt when he was white hot at the time was unthinkable. I genuinely wanted JBL to get his due when he inked his way into the main event scene. I greatly anticipated when the WWE Championship would change hands.

      • Foley is good says:

        The Charlotte ones didn’t bother me because I enjoyed the feud overall. But this last one was ridiculous. It just hurts someone that was pretty popular. Same with Bayley. I know I am in the minority at this point but I still like all four of the NXT Horsewomen.

        • LP1 says:

          I don’t think you’re in the minority. I love all 4 of them. And after watching the Mae Young Classic today, I’m really looking forward to the 4 on 4 “Horsewomen vs Horsewomen” match. Whenever it happens.
