It would appear that WWE has canceled, or at least delayed, its scheduled DVD and Blu-ray release, WWE: The Attitude Era, reports WWEDVDNews.com.
The listings for the title, which was scheduled for release on November 20, 2012, have been removed from internal schedules for both the United States and Australia. According the website, this generally occurs when a title has been cancelled or postponed.
Details of the title surfaced in July, but artwork and content listings still have yet to be released as the scheduled release date draws near.
The title came under fire by two Connecticut publications this week since the sports-entertainment organization recently scrubbed hundreds of videos from “The Attitude Era” off YouTube and other video-sharing websites after they were used in Democratic advertisements attacking U.S. Senate hopeful Linda McMahon. WWE said this was done in order to “protect their corporate reputation from being mischaracterized in negative political agendas.”
Asked Monday whether the title would contain any of the squashed material and why the organization was releasing the compilation so soon after McMahon’s election, WWE spokesman Brian Flinn told Brian Lockhart of CTNews.com that the title would be rated PG and consistent with how the company has marketed itself in recent years.
WWEDVDNews.com cannot confirm whether the title has been cancelled altogether, but its removal from schedules indicate it won’t be released this year.
