WWE’s Upcoming “Attitude Era” DVD Comes Under Fire, Fan Run-in At Raw Cut Out

- WWE’s upcoming Attitude Era DVD and Blu-ray release has come under fire by two Connecticut publications since the sports-entertainment organization recently scrubbed hundreds of videos from that era off YouTube and other video-sharing websites after they were used in Democratic advertisements attacking U.S. Senate hopeful Linda McMahon.

Brian Lockhart of CTNews.com explains, “The company, still run by Linda’s husband, Vince, is protective of its brand when it helps Linda’s political career, but happy to profit off of those raunchier programs any other time.”

Asked Monday whether the title would contain any of the squashed material and why the organization was releasing the compilation after McMahon’s election, WWE spokesman Brian Flinn told Don Michak of JournalInquirer.com he needed more time to respond. Flinn, however, noted to Lockhart that the title will be rated PG and consistent with how the company has marketed itself in recent years.

Attitude Era is scheduled for release on November 20, 2012, according to Amazon.com.

- As seen briefly during Monday’s live Rawbroadcast, a fan entered the ring near the conclusion of the match between Ryback and The Miz. The individual was immediately tackled by WWE security personnel and referee Scott Armstrong and pulled away from the ring. WWE has released video of the match online and the live shot of the incident was cut out.
