Dusty Rhodes Confirms Hosting New WWE DVD – Best of War Games?

January 8, 2012 by Daniel Bee

Thanks to William Slack for contributing to this article.

WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes posted on Twitter this week (@DustyWWE) that he’s been doing “DVD work” for WWE lately, yesterday revealing that he will be hosting an upcoming release.

He is keeping quiet for now on what exactly that is, but the project that comes to mind immediately is The Best of War Games. Back in February of last year we heard first hand from WWE that this was a DVD under consideration so perhaps now is the right time.

Given that Dusty Rhodes is the host, we feel the feature is bound to be WCW themed, and we know WWE DVDs with this theme are consistently top sellers.

Aside from WCW, and going off WWE’s “intent to purchase” survey of last year, the only other two options that may loosely relate are,

– The Greatest Moments at Madison Square Garden,
– The Brutal History of the “I Quit” Match.

So what do you think Dusty is referring to? Leave a comment below!

  2. joe says:

    starrcade anthology gets my vote.

  3. joe says:

    i hope it is the complete starrade anthology or the great american bash

  4. kevin lester says:

    I agree with srb in that there should be a wcw.themed DVD out every year. Personally I’d like to see sets on the bash & Halloween havoc since we already have one on starrcade. Also, I shit from 2 or 3 disc set on the rock n roll express!! Hey miracles can happen right!?? It’d.prolly take one for that to happen lol.happiness if we somehow got a

    I RATHER SEE THE BEST OF CLASH OF THE CHAMPIONS OR THE GREATEST WCW SUPERSTARS DVD SET THAN WARGAMES.

  6. guido says:

    It has to be history of Florida.championship wrestling. Not enough constant out there for a wargames dvd

  7. Will NJ says:

    SBR…
    Keep in mind that Wargames itself wasn’t a particular Pay-Per-View event, it was a special attraction that took place at different PPVs over the years (i.e. WrestleWar, Fall Brawl). I find it interesting that the match was also staged at some house shows along the way, one of which popped up on the Flair/Horsemen DVD. Who knows how many of those were actually filmed though? I do remember there was a big one at a house show in Chicago in the late 80’s, which I’d love to see.

  8. Triple N says:

    I would love to see the Best Of Jerry Flynn, or Best Of El Dandy.. Guaranteed best sellers

  9. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    @Anonymous

    I would definately like to see Best of Clash of the Champions

    Best of Clash of the Champions?

  11. SRB says:

    War Games gets my vote as to what I think it’s going to be. But I’m surprised WWE is going with that (again if thats what it is) War Games, although popular was not as high on the list as Starrcade, Great American Bash or Halloween Havoc. I could see those sets coming out way before a War Games compilation. However, I remember War Games having some real classics. They need to put out 1 WCW themed release each year.

    @Anonymous

    I used to think WWE would be better off doing the War Games as the main event of Survivor Series every year. Then I started thinking about having the Survivor Series main event in the Elimination Chamber was better. WWE will never do either one anyway, but it was good thoughts.

  13. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    War Games makes sense, and I hope thats what ends up being released. I doubt it though. I like the WCW themed DVD’s. Hopfully they release another one in blu-ray form too.

  14. Anonymous says:

    i hope it’s the history of the u.s title dvd. long overdue. or the greatest superstars in wcw history.that will be cool.

  15. Bollea's Bud says:

    At Nelson7… Dusty Rhodes actually was an nWo member. Joining at Souled Out 98 PPV, if I recall… And appearing in the corner of The Outsiders for some time after that.

    • Daniel Bee says:

      I personally think they’d get Nash to host an nWo DVD, and get DDP back again to continue with the Nitro volumes. WarGames seems to make the most sense but we’ll see.

  16. matthew says:

    sorry i meant to say dvd not game haha

  17. matthew says:

    It could be the best of war game or maybe best of nitro volume 2? either way and wcw dvd would be great

  18. Anonymous says:

    I think wwe should bring back the wargames match with some tweaks:

    1. Use the Hell in a Cell Cage instead of the two rings setup
    2. Make it an elimination match like ROH variation
    3. Use a New Wrestler every 3 minutes interval from the beginning instead of 2 wrestlers go at it for 5 then one each 2.

  19. Brad Attitude says:

    The Brutal Beatings of Dusty Rhodes – hosted by Dusty Rhodes.

  20. Nelson7 says:

    At Daniel, they need some who was actually in the NWO for that DVD like Nash Hall and Syxx Pac

  21. Daniel says:

    The rise and fall of the NWO?

  22. Daniel Bee says:

    To “F*ck You All”, d’ya mind choosing another username to comment? No rules about swearing here but I don’t particularly enjoy seeing a stream of “F*ck You All” in the recent comments box. 😉

  23. F You all says:

    or another dvd they could be talking about a new dvd on him on his sons and there involed in the company and so and so

  24. F You all says:

    war games would be great to have on dvd quality then they really should do a box set. Then they really should do that I Quit DVD i would love to have all the I Quit Matches on DVD cause since they were only a few and they will probley never have another one in the ” PG Era”

  25. matthew S says:

    all I know if it has anything to do with NWA/WCW I will be getting it.

  26. Jamie says:

    I’ll take the Moments of MSG dvd their overdue for a moments and matchs dvd on MSG

  27. Nelson7 says:

    I hope the NWO destruction of the 4Horseman is on this coming DVD, NWO and DX 4 life.

  28. Bill says:

    Best of WARGAMES would be great! Maybe he will explain why they put Big Bubba in a body suit and mask as the War Machine after JJ Dillon got injured back in the first WG match. I mean, c’mon, were they fooling anyone?

  29. m.blier says:

    a long shot the nwo anthology,or a wcw best ppv matches.the wcw war games 97 has chris benoit in the matche,might be a problem there.chris benoit was in the elimanation chamber anthology dvd set ,but you never know with the wwe.

  30. Supersonic says:

    Goldust/Dustin Rhodes or Rhodes Family Anthology
    War Games
    I Quit
    MSG
    Great American Bash collection
    Nitro Vol. 2

  31. SRB says:

    War Games, Clash of the champs, Anything with WCW will be great. I love these all WCW releases and I think WWE should do one every year

  32. Tommy B3 says:

    Maybe Clash of Champions?

  33. im saying war games. i did feel this set was poss for 2012

  34. nick says:

    Anything WCW is a win but I hope it is Wargames. Finally get the 1987 and 1992 matches on dvd.
