WWE has scheduled “The Best of Attitude Era Royal Rumble”, and with that the first WWE DVD on the way for 2023 has been revealed!

This will be a 2-disc DVD set releasing January 24th, 2023, in the US — a US release is encouraging to note given all 2022 WWE DVDs in the US were for the modern-day PLEs only. Pre-orders are about to be made available here on Amazon.com.

We don’t have eyes on the content yet. The title is “Best of”, yet the first synopsis (below) talks about a “collection of Royal Rumble Matches”. In theory, a 2-disc set would be able to accommodate the full Rumble matches held between 1997 and 2001, won by Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock and… Vince McMahon!

THE BEST OF ATTITUDE ERA ROYAL RUMBLE

When the Royal Rumble Match meets the Attitude Era you get the wildest over-the-top-rope melees in WWE history.

This collection of Royal Rumble Matches features iconic Superstars, shocking moments and a Royal Rumble-sized helping of Attitude.

We have it confirmed this will be a worldwide offering, so the UK gets it too. A release date for the UK is not yet known but should be very soon.

The first WWE Home Video release next year in the UK will be Survivor Series War Games 2022 (on both DVD and Blu-ray) on January 9th, so “Best of Attitude Era Royal Rumble” will follow after that. In the US, Survivor Series is on the way first, which will be the final DVD of 2022.

    The way they are so desperate to cling to this poorly-aged Attitude content. Move on, guys. Honestly 80s WWF had aged way better.

  2. Alex murray says:

    I will gladly buy this
    I am sad to report that I don’t think I will be buying any of the ppv dvd released.I have lost a lot of interest in the current WWE product.I still watch out of habit but it just doesn’t do anything for me. I grew up with wrestling as a kid and started watching in 1998.
    Anyway I will be getting this royal rumble dvd
    Would be great to get a Best of wcw thunder dvd release or a wcw house show compilation

  3. The Best Of Face Paint Wrestlers of All Time
    DVD / BLU-RAY…

    Ultimate Warrior, Sting, Legion Of Doom, Demolition, Papa Shango, Great Muta,Jeff Hardy, and More.

  4. Joshua Cowsert says:

    Keep making more of the WWE Attitude Era DVD’s. Please make WWE DVD’s of the Golden Age Era and New Generation Era.

  5. BAS says:

    Oh my lord, if we’re gonna do miscellaneous big 4 releases, let’s finally get updated anthology releases where the events are finally unedited. If not new collection sets altogether, at least do stand alone releases for each event, similar to the WrestleMania re-releases in 2013, except actually make them unedited rather than repackaged anthology discs.

    • RabidHeat says:

      I agree, and what’s with this two-disc thing for just the Rumble matches? Surely if they were gonna follow the logic of the previously released ‘Attitude Era WrestleMania Collection’, they should’ve done a 5-disc A.E. Rumble collection?

      Although the Rumbles got good from 2001 onwards. The 1997-2000 Rumble matches sucked IMO, even if there were memorable moments i.e. Vince winning and Foley entering thrice in one match.

      I would also argue that the ’97 Rumble isn’t “Attitude” at all, if the Attitude Era was kickstarted by the Screwjob in the November.

      • BAS says:

        My only guess with ’97 could be because that was the year it was the “Dawn of the Attitude.” Other than that, you’re right, part of ’97 was still the New Generation era, the Royal Rumble being apart of that still. I feel it can even be argued that the 2002 Royal Rumble should be included since the end of the era is often been debated between 2001 and 2002.

        Hell, if it’s just Rumble matches, it can be ’97-’02 since all matches combined would be about 6 hours. 5, if you disqualify either ’97 or ’02.

        • RabidHeat says:

          Well yeah, I agree. I know a lot of people say the Attitude Era ended as soon as Austin shook Vince’s hand at ‘Mania 17, but meh, it very much still felt like the Attitude Era until it became WWE and the got the F out, IMO. When I watch Rumble 2002 I very much feel like I’m watching the Attitude Era.

  6. RabidHeat says:

    I’m sorry, but that’s the most pathetically pointless idea yet. They will do literally anything to put something out there with the word “Attitude” on it. What a waste of a slot on the schedule.

  7. Ozi says:

    Please Unreleased matches
    The undertaker
    Ultimate warrior

  8. RCS1988 says:

    I hope they do more unreleased matches sets.
