In a month stacked with FIVE new Home Video releases, WWE will get us all ready for the upcoming 30th anniversary of Survivor Series with “30 YEARS of SURVIVOR SERIES”.
The October offering will be presented as a 3-disc DVD set featuring a countdown of the 30 greatest moments in the history of the PPV and 17 full-length matches in its extras. You’ve seen the complete content listing here on the site, but it turns out that might not be as complete as once thought!
It looks like we may potentially have some extra content included in this one and if so it will probably be featured as an Easter Egg, explaining why it is hidden from the confirmed chapters. Early word is that the countdown portion could have an additional “31st” moment.
On the subject of the main feature, WrestlingDVDNetwork.com can now reveal that it will have a runtime of approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes. And as reported that will be joined by more than 6 hours of bonus matches, taking the complete runtime of the DVD well over the 7 hour mark.
Here’s your disc-by-disc breakdown of all that footage:
DISC 1: 1 hour and 10 minutes
DISC 2: 3 hours and 5 minutes
DISC 3: 3 hours and 1 minute

Fans in Canada may have had to wait an extra 7 days to get hold of the SummerSlam 2017 DVD, but this week’s release to the region also came with an Amazon exclusive!
This is the next opportunity to add another coin to your “WWE Official Coin Collection 2017”.
Following the Undertaker coin released with the WrestleMania 33 DVD and the Dean Ambrose coin released with the “Double Feature: Extreme Rules & Money in the Bank 2017” DVD, a new Finn Bálor collectible coin is now in circulation with the SummerSlam 2017 DVD. There’s just a single coin left to complete the collection which will be made available with the Survivor Series 2017 DVD.
Thanks to longtime WDN reader reader Aaron Rayson for sharing these pics.
Speaking of Canada, there’s some concern that the Blu-ray of “NXT: From Secret to Sensation” could have been cancelled after Amazon only listed the DVD version for pre-order. At this time we have not heard of any reason why that should be the case, but we’ll keep you informed.
Jumping to Amazon in the United States, the 2017-released “DDP: Positively Living” is right now only $9.99 here on Amazon.com. This title was for a long time “unavailable” on the US Amazon but that appears to have been rectified and with a great deal on top!
The DDP DVD is priced significantly lower than other comparable releases this year and it’s as much as $19.99 on WWEShop. So go grab one; there’s currently only 8 of the DVDs in stock.
Looking ahead at the remaining 2017 WWE Home Video schedule, everything is a lock except for the UK exclusive “2017 Annual” box set. As of last word the release of this title is still being debated.
We hear that the first 2018 WWE DVDs should have release dates in 2 weeks at the latest.
Renee Young has revealed through social media that she recently filmed a DVD special with WWE. That will inevitably wind up as a 2018 release and we speculate that she filmed host segments for one of the 2017 retrospectives due out early next year. The last “Best PPV Matches” title was hosted by Lita, and the last “Best of RAW & SmackDown” was hosted by Jerry “The King” Lawler.
KNOW YOUR ROLE AND SNAP THIS UP!
You are just days away from adding “1997 – Dawn of the Attitude” to your collection; WWE will release this 3-disc DVD and 2-disc Blu-ray next week to fans in both the UK and USA! [GET IT].

Does anyone know what content is on the 4th disc of the Roddy Piper dvd set?
Only like 5 more Piper’s Pits that’s all.
Is the 1997 Dawn Of The Attitude 3 DVD Set going to be a plastic white 3 DVD set case
Hopefully it will be the Best of Raw and Smackdown. A lot of great matches will probably be on there. 2nd women’s MITB, Nakamura vs Cena, The US title matches with Owens, Styles, and Jericho.
Man I hope the Survivor series coin Will be the rock or John Cena or Randy orton that be cool
I know it’s flogging a dead horse and that WWE Home Video clearly doesn’t care about this complaint, but I really don’t understand why there would be a disc with only 70 minutes of content on it?
I understand, when there’s an accompanying Blu-Ray release, that the runtimes can cause the corresponding DVD to have some strange run lengths, but when it’s purely a DVD-only set, I don’t really get it. Why couldn’t they have put another two hours worth of matches on there? It’s not as if they’re struggling to find content for this release. Is there an actual, logistical explanation I’m unaware of?
Why not just add another disc?
Disk run times have been worse. Disk 1 of the first release of Undertaker 20-0 was about 38 minutes. The Greatest Stars of 21st Century release had a run time of 9 hours but was barely over 6 hours.
single-layer discs are less expensive than double layer discs. I think it’s as simple as that.
So they can’t finish SSeries Anthology so they ‘Best Of”. They wonder why they are listed as a “C” Tier Production Company
Oooh Renee Young is hosting the first set for next year I’ll make sure to run out and pick that up first day of release just for that reason!! Lmfao who cares. Does anyone really?? A more bland nontalented host for any DVD would be hard to find. I know it’s being mentioned on here cause it is news but really who cares if anybody??
If it were someone like Coach, Todd Pettingill, Sean Mooney or Jim Ross, you’d be leaping for joy right?
I think Brandon is basically saying the host is not really a selling point on this one, which I agree. And yes, one of the best sets of all time was Bret Vs. HBK, and one of the reasons was because good ole’ JR was the mediator.
Jim Ross would be fine but no ill pass on the rest.
More bland? The one girl with more personality than any announcer in years. Now if you mentioned Dasha Fuentes, then I’m with you 100%.
To each their own. I quite like Renee Young. I find her warm and quite entertaining.
How is it that the US is getting the NXT Blu-ray but gets cancelled in Canada?! doesn’t make any sense. Kind of difficult to measure Blu-rays sales when releases get cancelled.
Another stupid decision.
“At this time we have not heard of any reason why that should be the case, but we’ll keep you informed.”
Not cancelled just yet, at least nothing concrete. The US and Canada have different distributors so in theory could be possible but the two usually follow the same release pattern as you know.
Amazon US is now showing the same thing as Canada. I hope I don’t have to import the blu ray from the UK.
Amazon US has the Blu-ray right here http://amzn.to/2x6kHE5 so not sure what you mean, Timothy.
I apologize then. I must have clicked on the wrong link then.
My copy of dawn of the attitude era shipped today from best buy should be here by Monday or Tuesday! 🙂
