No better guy too have on the cover then The Face Of The AE/The Biggest Star Of All Time The Texas Rattle SCSA
Looks like the Warzone Cover PRETTY SICK
Reminds me of the cover of WWF Warzone on N64.
Is amazon still going to honour the mistake price from a month ago?
If you got an order in before they raised the price, then yes, Amazon will honor it….
this is an epic cover tha man who made wrestling awesome again & the best wwe champion of all time stone cold Steve Austin
Vol.1’s cover was more creative but I think this one says grainy Attitude Era better than that did. Actually, this one would look better if Austin actually was flipping the bird in his entrance pose, to give off the vibe of “uncensored” and risqué content inside.
It’s great‼️After all, Austin made the WWE so big with his rivlary against McMahon n others namely DX / Foley / Taker, etc..
I dont know what the back cover is like, but perhaps they (others) can b used on the back of the cover.
Cover is awesome Austin made the ATTITUDE ERA what it was now it’s the PG era with Cena which pushed away all the fans of the sport
Really?! Another one of these “PG is what’s wrong with wrestling” posts?! *SIGH!*
I can’t see how anyone can complain about Austin being the only guy on the cover. Austin WAS the attitude era. He’s the guy that turned the WWF around and became the biggest draw of the 90’s. Without Austin there is no attitude era. It’s like if there was a DVD called “The Rock ‘N Wrestling Connection” and only Hogan was on the cover, that would be fine too. Hogan defined that era like Austin defined his era. Same with Bruno Sammartino in his day and, as sad it is to say, John Cena over the last decade.
did Austin stand in the ring.. alone.. performing by himself.. and thereby created the Era?
Was Hogan the only one responsible for getting wrestling out to the masses…by him self in the ring?
I get you, that as well as Austin in his time and Hogan in his time were the main forces.. but, to set it up as they were the only ones to be defined as THE Era is rubbish.. they kind of had to have opponents that were fuel for them to give their performances that they are remembered for.
And that fuel is as much part of the Eras as Austin and Hogan them selfs.
Let me answer your questions in order.
Austin did stand alone… on top of the mountain when it came to drawing money (PPV buyrates, TV ratings, merchandising, ticket sales). No one else at the beginning of the Attitude Era even came close. Nobody. Rock came later on, but the Attitude Era was already created. Anyone who was in the ring with Austin was thankful to be working with him because it meant they were making main event money.
Hogan at the time WAS the only one to get wrestling out to the masses. He was the first guy to cross over into mainstream entertainment. No wrestler before him had the worldwide media notoriety that Hogan had. And throughout most of his big run in the 80s he was the only guy to breakout outside of the wrestling bubble. Piper tried, but was nowhere near Hogan’s level. Like Austin when it came to drawing money (PPV buyrates, TV ratings, merchandising, ticket sales) nobody came close to Hogan in the 80s even came close. And again anyone on the roster would kill to be in the ring with Hogan because that’s where the main event money was.
As for the opponents, or the fuel as you call them, even Michael Jordan and Babe Ruth needed other players to play against. Obviously. Mankind, Rock, DX, Undertaker, Kane, etc. were all big stars, absolutely. But none of them were, and man do I hate this term, the face of the company. They deserve a ton of recognition for their roles in the attitude era. No question. But make no mistake about it, if you take any of those names out of the equation (Mankind, DX, Taker, Rock, etc) you would still have an attitude era. The reason? Austin. Without Austin there would be no attitude era.
And that’s the bottom line. 🙂
naaah.. not the bottom line by a long shot. 😉
but.. I guess, it depends on what angle you view it in:
seeing it from a money-making perspective only, I totally agree with you, Hogan and Austin were the ones that put bottoms in the seats.
But.. you really did’nt wanna pay only to see 1 match or 1 segment.. the matches and segments “warming” up to the main event is in my book at least just as important to be cosidered part of a show..or, in this case, an Era..as the main event or THE main event player.
Love it. It’s sexy and you know it 🙂
Awesome cover to go along with an awesome match listing.
They should have carried over the Beatles homage theme from the last one and done Abbey Road for volume 2.
Fantastic artwork for the WWE Attitude Era Volume 2 with the Bionic Redneck Stone Cold Steve Austin on the front of the 3 dvd set.
It’s pretty much the cover from the video game wwf attitude back on the PlayStation and Nintendo 64 still a nice cover but seem like they didn’t a have idea and just went with austin.
They should just rip off the cover for WWF Attitude for the next one. That cover pretty much had every big star from the era and a color palette and look that perfectly fit that era.
That said, this cover is great.
I agree.. if this would have been for a Austin only release, no doubt ’bout it’s cool..
Marks fantasy concept cover was better! But it’s ok at best.
yeaaah.. that White Album version would have worked better.. almost, as you in your own mind can fill the white wall cover with your own favorite Attiude Era moments and characters.
When will wwe get their eyes wide open up for Mark’s creativity. 😉
Should have stuck with spoofing Beatles covers.
Yeaaah.. I never really understood the critism vol. 1 cover got.. it showcases not only the huge mega stars of the Attitude era.. but, also the “side-kicks” that in my view did just a great job in forming the Era as did The Rock, Austin, Foley and the other mega stars.
while I acknowledge the fact, that Austin had a huge impact on forming the Attiutde Era, having him solely on the front cover is a disgrace to the likes of Foley, DX, The Rock, and also “side-kicks” attractions like Ho-train, Puppies. Val Venis, Nation of Domination and so on.
While maybe not completely copying the cover of vol. 1, I think it would be in its place to at least have some of the less familiar names on there to go along Austin, Foley etc.
Still very much looking forward to this one.. Christmas comes early this year with Attiude, Nacho-Macho and Giants.. 😉
MUCH better than the first one.
