This week not one, not two, but THREE separate WWE Home Video projects were unveiled in the works for late 2017, including a DVD celebrating the 30th anniversary of Survivor Series:

REVEALED: THREE New 2017 WWE DVDs – “Dawn of ATTITUDE”, “NXT: Secret to Success”, And… Another! can now fully confirm its go-ahead as: “30 Years of Survivor Series”.

We’re able to exclusively reveal that it will be formatted as a countdown of the 30 greatest matches and moments in the history of the event, presented as a three-disc DVD compilation.

It’s on the way to fans in the United Kingdom on November 13th and will hit stores one day later in the United States, all in the same week that the Superstars of RAW and SmackDown Live are set to converge in Houston, Texas for the 30th annual Survivor Series PPV!

An official synopsis (extended version of a blurb from WWE’s surveys) follows next.

  2. Kaizer Farrior says:

    Will the screw job match b added this time

    • SCSA says:

      It’s always added… it was in the Bret Vs Shawn Rivlary set, Best of Confidential & 50 Years – History of the WWE!

      • Josh Kennedy says:

        Shawn vs Bret from 1992 was much better than their 1997 match. I hope the former makes it on the set and not the latter.

  3. Anthony says:

    I think it’s a good idea that they are doing this as opposed to an anthology set. Why pay over $200 for an anthology set when for just 9.99 you can see them all?

    • Scott says:

      Guess you don’t understand DVD/Blu-Ray business then. Anthology sets are still in especially for collectors. You do realize with them not finishing the anthology set it makes them look very lame.

      • LP1 says:

        If Anthology sets are still in then the original Survivor Series anthology would have sold well enough to warrant finishing the set. It didn’t sell good. That’s why they stopped making them.

        • Anthony says:

          If it wasn’t for the network, they may have finished it. Why bother now?

          • brandon vendetta says:

            Why finish it now?? Because NOT EVERYBODY HAS THE NETWORK!!!!! Jesus tap dancing christ!! I don’t know why myself and others have to keep saying this over and over and over again, its very frustrating, I don’t see why some of you people just don’t get that. Myself and many others would still buy the anthology if it was finished because some of us collectors would like to have it in our collection, regardless if they are all on the the network or not.

            • LP1 says:

              Going back to what I wrote above, the reason WWE is not finishing the Survivor Series Anthology has less to do with the Network and more to do with the fact that the first Survivor Series Anthology release, many years before the Network existed, did not sell good at all. If there were enough people that bought the original anthology then they would have surely released the rest of it. Doesn’t make sense to mass-release something that did not sell the first time.

            • Anthony says:

              You mad Brandon?

              • brandon vendetta says:

                Yeah Anthony you obviously don’t get the point.and neither does anybody else apparently. Whatever I give up trying to explain it just go watch your network.

  4. RabidHeat says:

    I’m not really bothered about these summary sets of the best of certain PPVS, since I own all the PPVs themselves, so this would just feel like extra space taken up on my shelf for no real reason to me. I understand why somebody who doesn’t own every PPV would want it though. Just glad that it saves me some coin, lol.

  5. Eric Lombard says:

    3 discs isn’t enough to detail 30 years of an event. It needs at least 4-5 discs at least.

    • SCSA says:

      Yes, it would be better with 4-5discs but it was the same for the Wrestlemania & Royal Rumble sets which also had 3disc DVDs.
      I mainly brought Blu-Rays, cos they gave extra over just 2discs in HD 🙂

      The Stone Cold set was a 3disc Blu-Ray which has to be one of my favourite sets of all time! Survivor Series, WM, RR & a possible upcoming Summer Slam set all should have been 3disc Blu-Rays & 4 disc DVD’s too!

      • Eric Lombard says:

        And both “true story” of WrestleMania and Royal Rumble DVDs were average and wasn’t really the true story fans hoped for. With Survivor Series being a countdown set (which I’ve never enjoyed), it’ll get mix reviews like the other two sets.

  6. yeahitsme says:

    I will be buying everything from August-December

  7. LP1 says:

    Can’t believe WWE finally got an anniversary correct. Amazing. Usually they’re off by a year. Like “the 25th anniversary of WrestleMania”. Good for them.

  8. Paul says:

    Guessing we can now also confirm a ’30 Years of Summerslam’ set for next year as well?

    No mention made of a Blu Ray which I guess fits in with the ‘match compilation on DVD only’ philosophy WWE appears to have switched to. Sadly.

    Hoping this set includes a lot of the traditional Survivor Series matches rather than the many regular matches the event has seen

    And please WWE, NO GOBBLEDY GOOKER!!!!!

    • brandon vendetta says:

      I hope the gobbledy gooker hosts the set and just gobbles every word on the DVD.

    • Anan says:

      Yes. I also believe that a SSlam set will follow. They started with WM, rightly so as it’s the biggest event of the company, followed by one on the RR which is known as the official kickoff for the Road to WM. This year sees a set on SSeries so it’s inevitable SSlam will get one.

  9. SCSA says:

    Glad to hear it’s a definite of the Survivor Series set, though it’s upsetting that they didn’t mention it to be a Blu-Ray set as well as a DVD 🙁

    • Anan says:

      Based on recent DVD-only releases, pretty safe to say at this point I think that sets that feature a documentary like a set on a specific subject whether that’s a talent, era, or the upcoming NXT set that focuses on the beginnings of NXT to where it is now are the only ones that’ll be on bluray. PPVs (the big ones anyway) could be on bluray too but this may be only in certain parts of the world.

      • SCSA says:

        I hope your right! ‘the True story of the Royal Rumble’ was a blu-ray 🙂 though they also mentioned blu-ray for it at the time as well as a DVD release. Here they only mentioned a DVD release.

        As for the Documentaries, yes they should all be on Blu-Ray including the upcoming Kurt Angle set which I believe will include a documentary on him as well as matches.
