WWE The Attitude Era Volume 2 DVD

The two winners selected in our recent “Attitude Era – Volume 2” DVD giveaway have e-mail addresses beginning “bronski161″ and ba.rockshow”.

Congratulations if that’s you – look out for a notification from us to claim your prize.

If that’s not you, stay tuned to this week as we’ll be starting this year’s Christmas Giveaway with lots of planned WWE DVD prizes!

You may recall that when WWE released “The Best of Sting DVD” back in September, there was an error made on the back cover artwork. One of the photos was actually not Steve Borden (Sting) but rather Jeff Farmer, portraying the “nWo Sting” character.

Check out the original error again in these DVD photos and these Blu-ray photos. We can confirm that WWE have now corrected the artwork, replacing the erroneous photo with one of Sting and Bret Hart (shown below). The re-printed copies are being shipped to stores.

Thanks to Robert Livingston, “number1jf” and “gemni888” for sending word.

    It’s a little off topic but still a “why don’t they fix” question….back in 2008 the Rock & Roll Express were released in the classic superstars figure line, some moron in the factory obviously didn’t know Morton from Gibson & the figures were painted wrong…Morton has black hair & Gibson has blonde…why was THIS never corrected?? I waited 22 yrs for their figures only for wwe to f**k it up majorly & it’s a shame because I bought a 2nd set & corrected the paint job & it looks exactly like them.

  2. OWN says:

    why don’t they fix the warrior typo they made on dvd / blu Ray. They had the match listing wrong on the back.

  3. fakebubbajones says:

    ecw unreleased 3 is shaping up to be one of the best releases of next year, cant wait for it even though it’ll be wwe edited-swearing & music

  4. number1jf says:

    Glad someone got a picture of it, the Wal-Mart nearest me still had like 2 copies of the misprint, may have to go back to get one to keep sealed after Christmas.I already have it unsealed, but we all know that plastic can make the difference. Should I or not? What do you guys think?

  5. King1117 says:

    I own a Blu-Ray copy with the original packaging that includes the error. One day it will be worth millions

  6. Jeffrey says:

    Dan, do you think the error prints will be rare?

    • Daniel Bee says:

      Probably a lot were printed but it’s a collectible thing for us hardcores to keep hold of. Sellers on eBay may try to charge high prices for ones with the original photo.

      • Kenny says:

        I can’t imagine it’ll be worth too much. Remember the “History of the Intercontinental Championship” where they put a pic of Buddy Roberts on there because they thought he was Pat Patterson? How much is that one going for? I can’t imagine it’ll be very different.

        • SRB says:

          There was a Summerslam DVD where the main event sound cut out in the middle of the match. I think the match was Orton/Benoit. My point is that WWE actually makes errors all the time. I don’t recall them being worth much money due to the error.

          Exclusives seem to be worth more: Homecoming, Trish FYE, the metal boxes of PPVs.

          • David says:

            I never heard about the Summerslam 2004 audio cut since I bought the Canadian KOCH version which was fine. I guess it was only in US copies.

            The only really issues I had with WWE DVDs was the Wrestlemania Anthology when I first bought it back in 2005. WM18 for instance use to freeze up due to the crappy double-sided DVDs which are prone to scratches. None of my players were to play past Austin vs. Scott Hall. I had the original print of the WM18 DVD so didn’t bother me too much.

            I’m surprised companies still use double-sided discs. Those are the absolute worst and just cheaply made. I read reviews on Amazon and lot of people had problems with the WM Anthology and its not like they can send back one or two discs, but the whole thing and when they receive a new one, then again would have to check the discs if there were issues. Just a pain.

    Wow! What an amateur mistake on the part of WWE!! So much for quality control!
