Since it’s the big day, WrestleMania Sunday, let’s do something special of our own! The world exclusive (extreme) cover reveal for WWE’s incoming ECW DVD and Blu-ray.
As we reported yesterday, WWE recently decided to change the theme of this release from a ‘Best of ECW’ style, to the now unreleased match focus. The previous title and concept of “Biggest Matches in ECW History” was changed to ECW: UNRELEASED – Volume 1.
So, here’s an exclusive first look at both the DVD and Blu-ray cover art, which features Bam Bam Bigelow and Shane Douglas. Tommy Dreamer and Tazz are on the spine.
Sensational, Shocking and Over-The-Top!, the set is billed as featuring never before released matches in ECW history. It will be hosted by “the voice” of ECW, Joey Styles. Speaking of Joey, he’s confirmed via Twitter that this release will include only original ECW footage.
ECW: UNRELEASED – Volume 1 will be released within the US on June 5th, 2012. It’s available to pre-order on DVD and Blu-ray formats by clicking here.
Keep an eye on Silvervision.co.uk for UK/Europe’s release time and the content listing.
Comment below with your thoughts on the new ‘unreleased’ theme and the cover…
…and to all the WWEDVDNews readers; enjoy WrestleMania 28 tonight!
@Billy The Nitro dvd does not say Volume 1 anywhere on it, and a volume 2 was suggested by DDP
Whats the rating going to be? Im hoping tv-ma. Just so it matches the original 3 ECW sets.
i think this looks like a much better idea since there is lots of unreleased ECW matches and the original format could have seen too many matches that have already been released.
Awesome news! on the original three way dance being a Blu-ray exclusive.
WWE needs to stop with this vol release cause they never do like where in the hell is best of nitro vol 2
i wonder if it’ll show Chris Benoit in some background footage of certain matches like WWE did with the Best of WCW Nitro dvd 😉
Wow, Shane Douglas right on the F’N cover!
Joey Styles has revealed 2 blu ray matches…Original 3 Way Dance and Dreamer vs Snuka from ’94!
what a weird cover. lol. they could do better
Yea I know I am not sure if I will get the dvd or the blu ray depends on the blu ray extras.I hope they have some Mike Awesome matches It was so sad when he did he was one of the best wrestlers they has .He had some of the most amazing matches ever .
Hopefully this sells enough so we get a vol.2 unlike the raw seasons and survivor series sets. Getting the bluray day 1.
I would agree it looks like it also going to be bloody thank god also does anybody know what matches are going to be on this yet .First day buy for sure .
The matches included will be:
Rick Rude/Warrior Summerslam 89
Pipers Pit with Papa Shango
CM Punk vs AJ Styles
Tyson Tomko vs Gobbly Gooker
I would buy it just for AJ vs Punk
BEST DVD COVER I SEEN SINCE RANDY ORTON’S DVD SET.
Man i can’t wait to see the match listing!! Unreleased matches .! Fuck ya!!!
Hopefully there will be a Volume 2
this cover is off the chain. can’t wait for this one.
Awesome. Love the fact that repeats will likely be few and far between (if at all).
@Nate there won’t be any repeats, that’s why they are calling it “unreleased”
Can’t wait to buy this one first day buy not sure if I will get the dvd or blu ray depends on the extras .
Douglas vs Bigelow N2R 97 epic match made it on tthe cover
This cover is sick. Looks like the guy who did this wanted to out-do the poor job done on the Clash of Champions cover.
I’m not a big ECW guy, but that cover is fantastic.
Thats a great cover for sure!
If this is an April fool’s joke, I will cry.
Also, Taz is in the spine, not Tazz 😉
100% official! And you’re right, I’ll change Tazz to Taz.
Technically it is TAZZ as this is a picture from when he went back to ECW to drop the Title to Dreamer – change it back!
Fu*king Perfect cover here!!! OMG must have for every Original fun….
Almost seems to me this is like an unreleased collector’s series. WWE hit one out of the ball park here, not only are we getting an ECW release, but we are getting a from the vault ECW release. And we get Douglas and Bigelow on the front cover representing ECW? Amazing. Expect some really great stuff when the content gets released. I cant wait!
Pre-ordered alteady! The unreleased aspect is a huge bonus, I don’t know why WWE doesn’t use that theme more often.
I hope the inclusion of Tazz & Dreamer on the side (with Tommy holding the World Title) means that the Dreamer Vs. Tazz Match (post Mike Awesome) where Tommy wins the Title is included, as that match has been on WWEs Classics Online!
Edit– Oh almost forgot – The Franchise gets himself on the cover of a WWE DVD in 2012, guess showing up on Raw did some good after all – EXTREME REUNION!!!!!
Whatever the content listing I’m getting this ECW! ECW!
I personally really like the cover. Will not doubt get the Blu even though it isn’t probably necessary for ECW.
