30 years of splendor. 30 years of Superstars. 30 years of surprises. 30 years of Survivor Series!
The final WWE DVD offering this month, “30 YEARS of SURVIVOR SERIES”, is making its way to stores right now. In fact, it officially released to the United Kingdom today (£20.99; Amazon.co.uk) and is scheduled to land across the United States tomorrow ($17.89; Amazon.com).
Before then, WrestlingDVDNetwork.com is giving you an exclusive early peek!
First up, let’s take a look at a previously unadvertised free gift found in all first-run copies of this DVD — a Brock Lesnar Fathead (wall decal).
In celebration of the upcoming 30th Anniversary milestone next month with Survivor Series 2017 emanating from Houston, Texas, WWE present “30 YEARS of SURVIVOR SERIES”.
This 3-disc DVD set packs in a 30-moment countdown feature and 17 full-length matches made up of traditional Survivor Series Elimination matches, Championship matches, and some of the most epic main events we’ve witnessed in the three-decade history of Survivor Series.
Fans in the USA will be treated to Digipak-style packaging. It features a huge number of Superstars and Legends while giving the spotlight to a few stand-out moments, including: The Undertaker defeating Hulk Hogan for the WWE Championship in 1991, The Rock defeating Mankind for the WWE Championship in 1998, and Brock Lesnar coming face-to-face with Goldberg at last year’s event.
Thanks to “JayJayRock206” and “TribeFan1988” for sharing the pics.
“30 YEARS of SURVIVOR SERIES”
On Thanksgiving Day, thirty years ago, WWE’s second pay-per-view event was born with a new twist. Teams of five were pitted against each other and strived to survive.
Over the course of the next three decades, Survivor Series evolved into one of the greatest spectacles on the WWE calendar, where championship matches, iconic face offs, and unforgettable moments take place.
Join us as WWE Home Video count down the 30 greatest moments from 30 remarkable years of Survivor Series.

I got my copy this morning of sseries and it was the last copy at that moment and it is a great copy and now I own something classy on the rumble, wrestlemania,sslamv2 and 30years of survivor series man I feel complete oh I have the in your house set as well I put sseries before the iyh set.
Knowing that there is 2 hours free on Disc 1 makes me wish they would have at least shown the main event from the first Survivor Series on that disc. Andre vs. Hogan on PPV for a 2nd time is what created the Survivor Series PPV show anyhow!
just like people from the US might think about ordering blurays from the UK/Europe it might also be the other way around with dvds. the digipak artwork looks so much better than the plastic cases than the Fremantle releases.
I’m in the UK but packaging to me is irrelevant. I care only about disc content, barely look at covers etc.
to me it’s also very dependent on the content. I mean, all of these matches are available elsewhere (either via dvd/bluray releases or the Network), the more current ones even in higher quality.
to me this automatically increases the importance of the overall presentation (unlike a set like the recent “Unreleased” where the content itself is such a big “draw” for me that the artwork becomes an afterthought).
They could have put another 2 hours of content on disc 1. Why do WWE keep wasting all this disc space? That’s why I get blu-rays if I can. They cram those things full of content.
1. I assume because single layer discs are cheaper than double layer discs.
2. while I also like the bluray format (at least for footage that was broadcast in hd), unfortunately the WWE often didn’t use the full space for those either. that’s why some release had a runtime of 8 1/2 hours while others had up to an hour less (for example, “Attitude Era Vol. 2”).
(if I’m not completely mistaken, usually all of the bluray extras that 2bd sets have could fit on a 3dvd set as well, the WWE just choices not to do it and instead has some of it as “bonus”)
I don’t have the “free gift” inside my copy I received via Amazon.ca this afternoon…
Of course not. Same thing when Coliseum Video used to offer “free gifts” just for renting or even purchasing. All of the cardboard cutouts, gym bags, and cups never made an appearance.
I received that Brock Fathead with my Amazon order there’s a sticker on it that says exclusive to Walmart on the front of the package.
Dude ID be pissed too. Piss on the top 30 countdown and the matches on this set too for that matter. If I bought this and it didn’t come with that fathead of Brock Id go insane!! I just find it funny that even though it says it comes with all first run copies I bet that it is only for Walmart. I need it on my wall. That’s my selling point. No fathead/ no purchase.
this dvd could of been so much better. it just looks okish to me
