WWE’s new “30 Years of Survivor Series” DVD, which this year will commemorate the landmark 30th anniversary of the long-running event, will be arriving earlier than expected!
Previously pencilled in for mid-November, the 3-disc set has just been scheduled 3 weeks earlier in the United States on October 24th, 2017, as you can see reflected on our WWE DVD Release Dates page right now. It will join the “1997: Dawn of the Attitude” DVD/Blu-ray also on tap for October.
The UK release date, as of last word, could still be November 13th as first reported.
The format of this one has been described to us as a “Top 30 Moments” style countdown with each one presented in “fast-paced” condensed packages that recap great matches and historic milestones throughout the 30 year history of Survivor Series, the 2nd longest-running PPV behind WrestleMania.
In addition to highlights in a countdown there’s also said to be “hours of match extras”.
Expect to see the DVD go live for pre-order on Amazon.com any day now and be sure to check back with WrestlingDVDNetwork.com for updates on its cover artwork and content in the coming weeks.
“30 Years of Survivor Series”
On Thanksgiving Day, thirty years ago, WWE’s second pay-per-view event was born… this time with a new twist. In the early days, teams of five strived to survive. Now, learn the true story about how one of WWE’s landmark events came to be from the Superstars who lived and competed in it.

I love it, got mine at best buy. Fight Owens Fight on Blu ray as well as I will purchase the WWE 1997 DAWN OF ATTITUDE BLU RAY set from there too. Looking forward to having that one. Im an avid WWE collector. I have all 33 WRESTLEMANIAS, All 30 Royal Rumble events, A bunch of the Survivor Series events,all but one of the Summerslams, I am so grateful for my collection. So these new releases excite me. I anxiously await adding them to my collection.
I don’t think any documentary on a PPV event will ever top or come close to the WrestleMania one as their Royal Rumble one was disappointing along with their extended RAW after Mania one so I wouldn’t mind a countdown format although it’s easily predictable what the #1 moment will be.
What’s number 1? Takers debut?
Or the screw job?
What I enjoyed about a Survivor Series PPV were the matches of 3 Vs 3 or 4 Vs 4 elimination matches.
Obviously the 1997 ScrewJob will be a part of this set including the match itself I guess. Though there’s no need to add an hours questions & answers to that match as it’s all been answered mow a number of times in other sets.
They should show some old interviews on this. Like how they used to do those quick interviews on shows like Superstars with the whole team. Not having this on blu-ray will hurt that though.
I’ll pass on this. Never been a fan of countdown dvds.
So does the fact that this has been moved up mean a new DVD could be coming for 11/14? That’s usually the spot for the big blow away release and so far this year doesn’t have anything like that.
“Now, learn the true story about how one of WWE’s landmark events came to be…” I seriously doubt we’re gonna get the true story. The revisionist history story, yes. For sure. Guarantee there’s no mention of trying to sabotage JCP and Starrcade ’87.
I’m sure the sabotage strategy backfired as it only created more aggressive competition going forward especially with the Clash of Champions years later. I’m not familiar with NWA/JCP financial capabilities during the 87 period.
Get Kurt Angle to host the Survivor Series set. Who doesn’t want for him to back up their impartial objectivity claim by saying, “It’s true, it’s true.”?
The Starrcade 87 sabotage hurt JCP bad. Very bad. Then the Royal Rumble/Bunkhouse Stampede sabotage a few months later also hurt JCP. By late ’88 JCP went out of business and was bought by Turner.
They’ve actually mentioned the sabotage in the past on the Starrcade DVD.
Kevin Owens set can’t be shipped to the UK for some reason, never had that issue before.
If it has some non-PPV extras it will be worth it. Especially from Survivor Series Showdown.
We want Ravishing Rick Rude DVD!!!
Having to wait for it is so Rude!!
*Ok, I’ll let myself out (struts away with tinkle in eye)
*TWINKLE… I meant to say TWINKLE – why’s everyone staring???…
Survivor Series lost a lot of its shine after moving from the team sport format and from Thanksgiving night. Now it’s just another PPV. Aside from the Montreal Screwjob nothing of note has happened since.
There’s gotta be a way to make the PPV have that spark again. Heck, events like Extreme Rules and Money in the Bank have stipulations and concepts to further characters and storylines. Maybe give Survivor Series the Taboo Tuesday/Cyber Sunday treatment?
In the past WWE has attempted to bring high stakes to SS (off the top of my head):
-2001 WCW/ECW vs WWF
-2002 elimination chamber
-2003 Vince vs Taker & Austin vs Biscoff
-2004 Randy Orton vs Evolution
-2005 team Smackdown vs team RAW
-2007(8?) Taker vs Batista Hell in a Cell
-2014 the Authority angle and Stings arrival
(All of these up to opinion as to their impact)
I agree, Nothing will ever surpass the infamous Montreal Screwjob unless great changes are made within the company.
The best elimination matches post-2000 have all had something important on the line: WWF vs. The Alliance for full control, Team Austin vs. Team Bischoff to determine one GM, the match that saw the Authority banished in 2014…
There are definitely ways to make these elimination matches interesting, but they need to keep coming up with creative ways to put something important on the line.
Also, to people saying this won’t be the true story, it’s not being advertised as such is it?
Oh wait, they did say that. Just ignore me, will teach me to skim read!
