This week PWInsider.com revealed the following 2 WWE DVD projects in the works for late 2017, and today we’ve been able to officially confirm their go-ahead:
— “1997: Dawn of the Attitude”
— “NXT: From Secret to Success”
The 1997-themed Home Video offering is indeed scheduled for October 2017 as suggested and you may recall there being rumblings of such a release this time last year. If the details in WWE-issued surveys are to be believed this one could take the form of a “Best of” compilation to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the stand-out year that kicked off the Attitude Era.
A look back at the year 1997. It was the rise of Stone Cold Steve Austin, the birth of DX, the summer of the Hart Foundation and the debut of Kane. And who could forget the infamous Montreal Screwjob?
Moving ahead to December 2017, as of right now the company will be releasing a new NXT DVD!
Appearing as “The Rise of NXT” on those aforementioned surveys, WWE’s second Home Video on NXT is speculated to tell the story of the brand, its beginnings and its rise to prominence, and of course present a selection of accompanying matches and moments.
The upcoming 1997 and NXT titles are expected to be produced as the usual three-disc DVD sets, while Blu-ray editions could be possible for whichever have documentaries in their content.
That’s October and December sorted, but we’ve heard what’s planned in between!
WrestlingDVDNetwork.com can exclusively reveal early word of WWE planning a Survivor Series-themed DVD to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the event having first began in 1987.
“30 Years of Survivor Series” was a DVD/Blu-ray concept first talked about back in early 2016 — could it take the form of a compilation highlighting the greatest matches and moments in the PPV’s history, perhaps a “True Story” follow up to WrestleMania and Royal Rumble, or might this be the opportunity for WWE to complete the “Survivor Series Anthology” box set that never was?
Released TODAY by Kayfabe Commentaries is the newest entry to the “SUPERCARD” DVD series, this one covering SummerSlam 1988 with special guest The Honky Tonk Man!
