Back in 2011 WWE released “OMG! The Top 50 Incidents in WWE History” and as we’ve been reporting of late a follow up DVD/Blu-ray is on the way, focusing on World Championship Wrestling. This time around it will be “OMG! The Top 50 Incidents in WCW History“.
The official synopsis, which we can reveal for the first time below, hints that former WCW announcer Tony Schiavone has been interviewed for the countdown portion (likely filmed when he visited WWE headquarters in Stamford, CT earlier this year), and also gives the impression that there will be Crockett era content featured in the DVD and Blu-ray too.
Relive iconic moments such as Hulk Hogan joining the n.W.o., Magnum T.A. and Tully Blanchard’s infamous “I Quit Match”, the Horsemen assaulting Dusty Rhodes and dozens of others in this countdown.
Hear stories from the men who lived these moments…Tony Schiavone, Booker T, Vince Russo, Big Show, DDP, Dusty Rhodes, Kevin Nash and more.
In addition to the content above, we can confirm that the following moments are also planned to be included in the countdown: Shane McMahon & Vince McMahon appearing on WCW TV, Goldberg beating Hulk Hogan for the title in the Georgia Dome, Dennis Rodman joining the nWo, and David Arquette winning the World Heavyweight Championship.
That’s all, so far. What else could be in there? There’s lots to choose from, including: Eric Bischoff giving away RAW results, Arn Anderson retiring, nWo 2000 forming, Madusa trashing the WWE Women’s Championship, Chris Jericho’s “1004 Holds”, Hulk Hogan’s “Fingerpoke of Doom”, DDP swerving the nWo, Jim Cornette falling off the scaffold, and many more!
The new WCW “OMG!” DVD and Blu-ray will be released on August 12th. You can already pre-order a copy with Amazon by clicking here or using the buttons below.
Speaking of Tony Schiavone, WDN reader Joe Young sends word of a possible commentary edit or audio glitch observed in the new Ultimate Warrior DVD.
I’m watching The Ultimate Collection DVD and for some reason, WWE’s video department edited out commentary by Schiavone, Heenan, and Tenay during Warrior’s entrance for his final WCW appearance (Nitro • October 26, 1998) and because somebody wasn’t paying attention, it sounds like Warrior’s mic is cutting out for half of his promo! It wasn’t like this on the original broadcast.
“Batista – I Walk Alone” is the next documentary from a WWE DVD that’s advertised for the WWE Network. Look out for that in the Beyond the Ring category from Saturday night.
Released today to fans in UK/Europe (here at WWEDVD.co.uk) is “The Best of Raw: After the Show” on DVD and Blu-ray. It will be released to fans in Australia this Wednesday.

OMG! 2 looks great!!! Haha The David Arquette idiocy will NEVER get old! Lol. A lot of good OMG! moments will be on this one… thank you Bischoff, Russo, Hogan & Nash for your many stupid mistakes… at least something good came out of it. 🙂
I’m sick of hearing about David Arquette’s title win. They really could’ve done without that ludacrious blunder. I hope La Parka giving Randy Savage a Diamond Cutter will be on it along with Sid snapping his leg at WCW Sin!
This OMG Set should be good.Be interested to hear from Tony Schiavone.Haven’t heard from him since his brief TNA Stint.So it’ll be fresh to get comments from him.
I want the following:
-Nash powerbombs Giant on his head (that’s Big Show for you youngsters) on his head (Souled Out 1998)
-Bret Hart steel plate incident
-Russo wins world title
-Madusa throws belt in garbage
-Curt Hennig slams cage door in Flair’s face
-Rick Rude on Raw and Nitro in the same night
-Eddie Guerrero worked shoot (August 1998)
-Randy Savage gets sewage dumped on him (no one remembers this but this was a funny moment from Nitro if Snitsky punting a baby can be on there so can this)
-various fake/real Sting moments–the one with a bunch of fake Stings but the real one in disguise, Sting coming from a hole in the ring to attack Bischoff, etc
-the time nWo attacked the Giant, then asked Vincent to get Stings bat, then ate a chokeslam as the nwo watched
-Sting saves DDP and brings both to the rafters
-Sting comes out of a helicopter during an outdoor Nitro
-Tank Abbott attacks Mark Madden
-Giant thrown off roof after monster truck match
-Goldberg streak ends after stungun incident
-Fingerpoke of doom
-Luchadores lose mask (they usually shy away from Mysterio but Juventud can be shown)
-Steiners run off the road
-Steiners break up
-Dean Malenko disguised as Ciclope wins battle royal then beats Jericho for the belt
-Rey Mysterio thrown into a trailer by Nash
-Bischoff powerbombed by Nash at GAB 96
-Horsemen reunite with return of Flair (1998)
-Kanyon thrown off three tiered cage
-Sting attacked by dogs (GAB 99)
-Vader powerbombs Cactus Jack on concrete
-Jim Duggan joins Team Canada (this is kinda stupid but some comedy is good)
-Russo/Hogan incident from BATB 2000
-Goldberg destroys a limo and legit hurts himself
-Ron Simmons wins belt, first African American champion
-Hall turns on Nash (Slamboree 1998)
-Arn Anderson turns on Dustin Rhodes (BATB 94)
Those are just the tip of the iceburg. I know I’m not going to get a bunch of things that I want. I can’t complain too much, though, because this is going to be fun to watch.
Some moments I would like to saw are like, when Sting walked out in 1996, Piper vs. Hogan – StarrCade ’96 or more importantly Nash vs. Hogan – The Finger Poke that’s what I think…
The possibility of this including the NWA/Crockett era is awesome, there are soooo many that can be included but one in particular jumps out in my mind & that’s the incident when Jim Cornette threw the fireball in Ronnie Garvin’s face, anyone remember that?……it HAS to be on there!!
That’s before my time. I started watching in 1994. Now I feel stupid based on my previous comment.
Fireballs are so carny…but I wouldn’t mind seeing that on there. I didn’t even know that had happened.
Man, some of you guys are young. How can you not have seen WCW?
Anyways, this is early so I hope they are putting the effort into this. Rodman joining nWo is a weak choice. There is PLENTY of other stuff they could use.
There was a few middle fingers in the best of after raw dvd Orton did it few times and i can’t remember the others
Ahh is this like the 5th set with hall, nash and hogan vs. sting, savage and luger from
bash at the beach 1996 on this set and the 2nd set of the year with this on it? i’m
sure its also on the nwo one to.
After looking at the GAB results from years past, the matches did not seem all that great. Besides your Flair classics from the 80s, I’m wondering what it could be stacked with. Either way, I’m hoping the Hogan NWO turn match is not on the set. Very tired of that match. WWE’s version of the Bash will be there too, probably taking up an entire disc itself. Ugh. I’d like to see Sting/Muta and Flair/Anderson.
The Hogan Nwo Turn was at Bash at the Beach,Not The Great American Bash.So it won’t be there,But I agree.That match needs to be retired.
It’s gonna be on there. No way around it.
regarding OMG, vol. 1: I believe it was numer 39, the Tim White tries to End it segments..are they avaliable in full anywhere? WWE at their most silliest and grotesque..
I believe they’re on the Armageddon 2005 DVD. Somebody better clarify that before you head out and buy it, though.
Thanks .. Got that Armageddon show from 2005, and yes, the one with White in the bar with a shotgun is on in full length. Guess, it’s a bit too akward or absurd that the wwe will release it in full all “episodes”– lol
Well.. at least they are in segments on OMG.. 🙂
not that familiar with WCW too, other than the DVD/Bluray sets that’s been released so far, so looking forward to akward moments and crazy stuff that I do not know of.
well.. the music is annoying, sure.. but I rather have that than the bingo balls segment from 50 Greatest finishing moves.. lol
Should be a good set but the “oh my god” music from the first has to go! 😆
It should be replaced with Joey Styles in various forms.
Nah, save Joey for OMG! 3: The ECW Years.
I was not a fan of that first set, but because I never watched WCW and was loyal to WWE, I am really looking forward to the WCW set along with the GAB set that is on the way.
I’m hoping Batista’s content is coming any day.
I’m waiting for the batista one to. and match listings
I hope its just a touch up on his first set thow.
OMG!, vol. 1 is my favorite countdown set and I hope that they can make this WCW themed as funny and excited as the WWE one.
Will be nice to have an overview in a different way of the WCW product.
