How the DX “Tank” Changed EVERYTHING

Three things that strike me about the "Monday Night War" DVD package art:

1) The DX "tank" is on the cover. Because as we all know, that was the turning point of the Monday Night ratings war. (Note: The DX "tank" is a jeep, not a tank. Rusev knows what a tank is).

2) Chyna has been airbushed out of the "tank" photo.

3) There is absolutely no representation of WCW on this cover art and an old WCW fan would have no idea it has anything to do with WCW. In fact, it features NONE of WWF or WCW’s biggest stars on the cover — no Austin, no Rock, no nWo, no Sting, no Goldberg. Granted, the Rock is on the cover art for Volume 2, but still.

My takeaway: WWE would rather put out a DVD set about the 1995-2001 era of pro wrestling with Vince McMahon’s eyes and Triple H on the cover instead of much bigger stars (Rock, Austin, nWo) and zero mention of WCW even though putting the actual big stars on the cover would likely sell a lot more units.

Wait, wait, the DX tank was a JEEP?! WHY HAS NO ONE COMMENTED ON THIS FACT IN IRONIC FASHION BEFORE NOW?!?
