Tommy Dreamer has revealed himself as the co-host of the ECW Unreleased Vol. 2 DVD. He joins Joey Styles who hosted the first volume last year. Dreamer shared the following comments and photos on his Facebook and Twitter accounts yesterday.
What a great time I had today at WWE Studios. Me and Joey Styles hosted ECW Unreleased Volume 2. some really good matches and a lot of behind the scenes of ECW. The Revolution continues to exist. Look forward to everyone’s comments once they have seen it. Happy to go down extreme memory lane.
ECW Unreleased Vol. 2 will be produced on DVD and Blu-ray formats and hits stores in the United States on July 30th. You can pre-order a copy at Amazon by clicking here.
Jim Ross noted on Twitter that he was doing voice overs last Tuesday for “lost” Mid-South matches, many of which had never aired on TV. JR said it was a long day with WWE, during which he provided commentary to about 10 hours of footage. Some of these matches will be included on the planned Mid-South Wrestling DVD slated for September release.
Ross referred to five matches he voiced over, which we’ve listed below. We can’t confirm these are to be included on the Mid-South DVD but they remain possibilities.
Stagger Lee & Bill Watts vs. Midnight Express
April 22, 1984
Loser Leaves Town, Tuxedo Steel Cage, Coal Miner’s Glove on a Pole Match
Jim Duggan vs. Ted DiBiase
March 22, 1985
Jake Roberts vs. Snowman
June 1, 1985
Jim Duggan vs. Buzz Sawyer (Bloodbath)
Date not confirmed
Ric Flair vs. Terry Taylor
Date not confirmed
I’m SO excited to see the Mid South DVD. I’ve heard a lot about Mid South for years, but growing up, it wasn’t on TV in the Baltimore/Washington, DC market. This will be my first exposure to the promotion. I can’t wait to pick this one up!!
Need a new writer?? I love WWE so much! You should email me: email@example.com
Already pre-ordered the ECW DVD set.
I’m ready for some Summer ECW butt-kickin’.
Is that multiple matches or one giant stipulation for the DiBiase vs. Duggan match? If it’s one, good lord that sounds convoluted.
One giant stipulation. Great match as well. Duggan and DiBiase were both awesome in MSW.
Mid south smh why did they cancel the divas one, we old get lout of trish, lita stuff, Trish’s hof induction
Please tell me you’re joking. You’d rather have an awful collection of terrible matches, than a collection of forgotten classics from one of the greatest companies in wrestling history?
Mid-South won’t sell because kids don’t know what it is. I want WWE to only release blu-rays for small kids. I’m 39 years old.
I don’t think a Divas DVD would sell as not enough people care about the division also you can’t really sell a Divas DVD to kids
What is this gibberish?
Dreamer is great, already buying it for Sabu vs Jericho alone. Saw KIng Kong Bundy beat Dusty Rhodes in Taped Fist Match from Mid-South on youtube, would love to see that included.
Already have pretty much everything from Mid South worth seeing, so this DVD is a very easy pass. ECW Unreleased 2 is another one I have no interest in, either. Should be fun for those who do, though!
The article suggests there will be ‘lost’ matches included. Maybe some of those would be worth seeing and not such an easy pass?
It all depends on how far back they go and what shows they’re from. From what I can gather, a good majority of the masters converted to DVD are available online, already. They may or may not be official releases as the WWE themselves have acquired the Watts tape library in the last year.
Tommy Dreamer co hosting? A pleasant surprise!
