There’s about to be another new addition to the 2017 WWE Home Video schedule.
It looks like WWE have begun the filming of another WWE DVD project for next year — this one involving Mick Foley — as hinted at by the man himself over the weekend. Foley gave a first look at a segment that’s planned for it, which you can check out above and below.
The throwback sees the RAW General Manager reprise his former on-screen authoritative role of WWF Commissioner from back in 2000/2001, complete with T-shirt, hammer and messy office!
And a couple of “Certified G’s” stop by to join in on the nostalgia trip – Enzo Amore and Big Cass.
So, what are they filming for? Historically there’s always been a couple of years between volumes of the “Attitude Era” Home Video series – we can probably rule that out since we just got the third Attitude DVD in August, so an early speculation is that this might be a new Mick Foley DVD.
It’s unknown for now, but stay locked to WrestlingDVDNetwork.com for confirmation.

We noted how the new “True Story of Royal Rumble” DVD/Blu-ray (out next month) is expected to have a Chris Benoit sighting with the inclusion of the entire 2007 Royal Rumble match.
Regarding any edits present, WWE Home Video UK have stated that there are no noticeable adjustments made to Benoit’s entrance, commentary about him, or his involvement in the Rumble.
Despite this inclusion, don’t hold out for any mention of Benoit in the documentary portion!
Heads up on a new WWE DVD release this week – “WWE: Annual 2016”.
The UK exclusive combines “The Best of RAW & SmackDown 2015” and “Best PPV Matches 2015” from earlier this year into one box set, available to grab now on Amazon.co.uk or WWEDVD.co.uk.
Look out for several RARE WWE DVD goodies up for grabs in eBay auctions gone before the week is out, including this one never released to fans in the United States…

This (still-factory-sealed!) copy of the Survivor Series 2000 DVD…

$0.99 – WWF Divas: Tropical Pleasure DVD
$0.99 – WWF Royal Rumble 2002 DVD
Well, at least that’s progress on WWE’s part to feature a Benoit match with no commentary edits because while they can’t remove his entrance in a Rumble match, they could’ve easily ruined it like the MITB set by silencing every bit of commentary uttering his name.
I get the feeling that ever since the Network, they are subtly trying to be more inclusive of him in their history now but without being too explicit or blatant about it, perhaps step by step. I’ve seen some photo galleries posted on WWE.com where you can clearly see him even if he’s not the focus. Which is one step forward because for years, the closest thing you’d get was his boot being seen at the edge of a picture of a Royal Rumble match or something like that.
I’m still upset that Benoit’s triple threat match wirh HBK n HHH from WM wasn’t included in the Mr Wrestlemania set, yet other Benoit matches are included in other sets & in the upcoming Royal Rumble History set
hes not really in the rumble set just 07 rumble it’s self thats it as far as benoit goes. he gets away with him being on the network. they just dvd wise only put him in sets like ladder match mitb chamber.
Yeah but come on.. in the documentary going through every rumble (talk) they hav to mention the winner of the 2004 Rumble match!
Not gonna happen.. if they sort of follow the same concept as with the “True story of Wrestlemania” Bluray, the XX was barely mentioned. Same will likely happen regarding the amazing 2004 RR event, one of my all time favorites. If anything, it will problaly be mentioned for the LMS match between HBK and HHH.
Well thats a shame 🙁
Maybe a wwe best of 2000 dvd that would be cool
A 2000’s DVD would be pretty cool…
I hope Foley doesn’t get another set. Didn’t they give him one fir the umpteenth time like 2-3 years ago?
It’ll be 4 years since the last one. Time flies!
I love Mick, but I can’t see it being another Foley set. He’s had such definitive sets in the past that I don’t think anybody is clamouring for that, and aside from some GM stuff he hasn’t done anything significant for years. The only thing that would peak anybody’s interest is if WWE had somehow licensed some of his matches from the likes of IWA:Japan or FMW for the set, but I can’t see that happening.
Is there anything more of the Mick’ster himself that can be brought to the table regarding a new release on him? Would love it no matter what, but I actually think its rather a “Falls Count anywhere..” vol. 2 compilation…which would make this guy here a very happy man. 😉
Regarding Foley’s tweet: it would fit in perfectly with the “Falls count anywhere” concept..it could be a hint to the RR 2000 street fight against Hunter..but now, I am actually thinking: instead of a Mick or Falls count anywhere vol. 2..could this be the first attempt to make a overview of the Ruthless Agression era?! Now..THAT would be something for sure.. 😉
Appreciate your ideas, but a Ruthless Aggression era DVD with Foley hosting from his Attitude era commish office? Come now 🙄
If the Cubs can win the World Series, most anything is possible lol.
Weirder things have happen..like a WWE Hall of Famer becoming the next president of USA. 😉 We’ll see, when it will bee. 🙂
