REVEALED: Official Trailer for WWE’s 2017 NXT DVD, How Long Is The ‘Dawn of Attitude’ Roundtable?

September 12, 2017 by Daniel Bee

WWE 'NXT: From Secret to Sensation' DVD & Blu-ray - Logo has your exclusive first look at the 2017 NXT DVD!

Its first footage confirms that the main feature will count down the Top 25 Superstars in NXT history and gives a sneak peek at newly-filmed interview clips with NXT General Manager William Regal, head trainer Matt Bloom, and several former NXT Superstars including Finn Bálor, Corey Graves, Sami Zayn, Tye Dillinger and Big Cass, along with soundbytes from NXT founder Triple H.

The official trailer for “WWE: NXT – From Secret to Sensation” has arrived:

On top of the countdown portion, “From Secret to Sensation” will feature more than 20 full-length matches which span NXT’s pilot episode and run all the way to NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III this year.

Despite the trailer not referencing a Blu-ray edition (only DVD and Digital) the title is definitely scheduled for the Blu-ray format when it hits stores in the United States and the United Kingdom this November. A special edition “Giftset” may also be on the cards featuring the DVD and some unique NXT merchandise, however that is yet to be confirmed. As of last word the box set is a strong possibility for the United States but there are currently no plans to release it overseas.

In addition to the trailer today we have a new pack shot of the U.S. version DVD:

We noted recently that this year’s “Seth Rollins: Building the Architect” DVD oddly never surfaced in Australia, likely due to the title being put on hold so that it could instead be a pre-order bonus for fans buying the WWE 2K18 game this October through EB Games AU/NZ.

That is still the case, but for those wondering, we now know that the 3-disc DVD will receive a proper standalone release in the region toward the end of November.

In related news, it has been revealed that fans in the UK who pre-order WWE 2K18 through GAME stores will receive disc 1 of the Seth Rollins DVD as part of an exclusive pre-order offer.

    On a side note… Can anybody please tell me if the Austin Vs Rock WM17 buildup video was shown before the matchup on the ‘WWE BEST OF 2000’s DVD’ set please?

    • Daniel Bee says:

      Still my fave build up video, theme, PPV – everything 🙂

      “…in many cases, the original pre-match promo packages are included…”

      “…the good news is that Limp Bizkit’s My Way remains the soundtrack for this extremely well-produced recap of their rivalry…”

      • RabidHeat says:

        Every wrestling fan I know agrees that it was the best video package ever. I was also quite partial to the ‘Build A Bridge’ one for HHH/Goldberg from SvS 2003, but that edited out of the official DVD. 🙁

      • SCSA says:

        So it’s just the Limp Bizkit theme?! I mean do they show the actual build up that was done/made that starts with, ‘Stone cold Steve Austin is going to be in the main event at Wrestlemania, Oh hell yeah’❗️

      • SCSA says:

        Thankyou… I’ve just looked at the link again & seen where they mention your words… this makes me wanna buy it Even though I’m a Blu-Ray buyer only, I can do with the best Video Promo on the side❗️

  2. LP1 says:

    A 4 hour and 27 minute runtime for SummerSlam means some thinga will be cut out. The live PPV itself ran 4 hours and 1 minute. The 3 pre-show matches combined (from bell to bell) ran 41 minutes. If you include pre-show entrances and post-match stuff, that brings it to 56 minutes. That’s 4 hours and 57 minutes of content. I’m curious where they cut out 30 minutes from. Considering each disc can hold approximately 3 hours, there’s no need to cut anything at all.

    • LP1 says:

      That’s not to mention the Elias Samson and Shawn Michaels segments from the pre-show.

    • foley is good says:

      Hopefully the pre show matches will be included. They weren’t on Great Balls of Fire and Battleground

    • RabidHeat says:

      I’m guessing pre-show entrances may be cut, as on the UK WrestleMania 33 DVD.

      • LP1 says:

        Even if they cut the entrances, that only accounts for 15 minutes being cut. There’s still another 15 minutes cut somewhere, according to the announced run time. And like I mentioned, why cut anything? They’re already using 2 discs. There’s plenty of room to include everything.

  3. Justin F says:

    58 minutes and they could have fit more on that one disc. WOW.

  4. SRB says:

    DISC 1: 58 minutes…

    I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard before. We’ve had longer matches than this entire disc.

    • Foley Is Good says:

      I know. The NXT release will probably be the same for disc one. If the Blu-ray does get cancelled for NXT they could probably just throw the extra matches on the dvd because there is two hours not being used.

      • whut says:

        although if we are being literal that’s not true. the dvds with a shorter runtime are single layer discs. so it would probably be more somewhere between 30 minutes and an hour not being used.

        (for three discs of three hours they would need for them to all be double layer discs instead)

    • Brandon vendetta says:

      Yeah 58 minutes is kind of ridiculous. I understand they are only discussing 1997 but I was really hoping for more than a lousy 58 minutes. For me I’m still up in the air with this DVD. The round table discussion was the main selling point for me since I and I’m sure alot of others already have most of these matches on other sets. I really hope this is the last DVD about anything having to do with the attitude era. Enough is enough already.

      • RabidHeat says:

        Lol, brace yourself for:

        “1998: And We’re Off! Attitude Up and Running” (3 Discs)

        “1999: The Heart of the Attitude Era” (3 Discs)

        “2000: Contin-Attit-ued…” (3 Discs)

        “2001: End of Attitude” (3 Discs)

        “2002: Aftermath of Attitude” (3 Discs)

        “2003: Hell Aggression: Attitude Well and Truly Over” (3 Discs)

        • RabidHeat says:

          Hello Aggression *

        • SRB says:

          Don’t forget the cook book released in 2004: “Smells Like Attitude: The Best Recipes From Your Favorite Attitude Stars!” Cupcakes are Jericho were delicious!

        • new guy says:

          Coming Soon “The Very Best of WWE Home Video Attitude Era DVDs”!

          A panel of WWE Superstars including D-Lo Brown & Dan Severn sit down for 30ish minutes to discuss their favorite Attitude Era DVDs! Includes 2 full discs of frequently-before-seen matches!

        • Brandon vendetta says:

          The sick thing is that I totally could see a few of those being released. Lol Hope nobody that works at The WWE ever goes on this site. You’re gonna give them ideas.

        • LP1 says:

          In 20 years from now they’ll release a 20th anniversary set looking back on this 1997 roundtable discussion, getting thoughts from the guys on what they thought of the roundtable discussion and the attitude era in general.

        • RabidHeat says:

          “2011: 10 Years After The Attitude” (3 Discs)

      • foley is good says:

        I am pretty tired of it too.

      • SRB says:

        The round table discussion is a great sell, but why not more of that? I mean, WWE has the tools, why not use them? Look at the discussion format used with HBK/Bret. It worked and was entertaining throughout. Get into the real questions about things like crossing the line weekly for ratings, possibly going out of business, selling sex on television, and unrealized moments that were considered but never happened. Don’t just put HBK in a room and give me “Hunter and I were crazy back then.”

        • Brandon vendetta says:

          Attn: SRB. I don’t say this often but you stole the words right out of my brain. “WWE has the tools why not use them” couldn’t agree more. Well spoken. You hit the nail right on the head. It really makes one wonder doesn’t it?? They could have come up with anything to talk about. Anything at all revolving around 97 and could have added at least another 20 minutes at the bare minimum and still would have kept the conversation Interesting. I don’t know who at WWE comes up with or determines these things but I wish I had that job. If the best you can come up with is 58 minutes discussing one of the greatest years in wrestling history than I don’t know. Could have been longer IMO. I don’t get their mentality at the WWE DVD department. Makes zero sence to me. Im missing something

          • SRB says:

            Im with you man. Im not the greatest fan of how WWE is doing their booking these days, completely dropping the ball on Wrestlemania events as of late. These sets reflect the identical strange decisions.

    • whut says:

      considering that the Kurt Angle and “Unreleased” sets ran for a total time of about nine hours, a seven hour release seems disappointing.

      I mean, they could obviously have gone with a double layer disc for the first one and added about two hours of more content (even if the roundtable itself was the same length, it would have still meant a lot more matches or segments).

    • RabidHeat says:

      You’ve never laughed so hard? Wow, you really need to watch some stand-up, or a classic comedy film or something.

  5. Foley Is Good says:

    Troubling thing about NXT release is I can’t find the Blu ray listing on Amazon Canada. Hope it isn’t cancelled.

    • Corey C. says:

      Checked too. That is weird. I checked on Amazon US, it’s there. Power out from Hurricane Irma not keeping me away from this site! Stay strong people living in severe weather ridden areas.

    • David says:

      Its pretty odd, usually Amazon Canada puts up the DVD and Blu-ray versions at the same time. It will probably be up soon as Amazon US has it so highly doubt its cancelled in Canada.
