WWEDVDNews.com has some exclusive info to reveal on June’s WWE: The Biggest Matches in ECW History DVD and Blu-ray. So let’s get to it.
(Kindly link back to this article if you are using any portion of this news post on your own websites and blogs).
First up, the marketing tagline for the release reads “Sensational, Shocking and Over-The-Top!“. The set is to be billed as featuring never before released matches in ECW history (in part). As rumored, we can fully confirm the DVD will be hosted by “the voice” of ECW, Joey Styles.
As for why another ECW DVD is hitting stores, it’s all about the content being in fan demand. Whilst it’s been more than 5 years since the last ECW Home Video, WWE suggest that recent consumer research has proven a high demand for original ECW content, second only to WCW content.
Here’s a new, second synopsis for the release…
ECW started as a small, Philadelphia-based local wrestling company, but rapidly became a sensation that built a passionate fan base and influenced both WCW and WWE permanently.
Extreme Championship Wrestling was known for its intense matches, fan interaction, and introducing a number of future superstars to the general public, including Tommy Dreamer, Raven, Sandman, Taz, Eddie Guerrero, Chris Jericho, the Dudley Boyz, Rob Van Dam, Shane Douglas, and more.
Now for the first time in years, ECW returns to home entertainment with The Biggest Matches in ECW History. Hosted by the longtime unmistakable voice of ECW, Joey Styles, this home video release collects some of the most amazing and over-the-top matches in ECW history, some of which have never before been released on DVD.
Joey Styles confirmed the DVD to be in the works at WWE shortly following the reveal. Also via Twitter, he clarified that this release will include original ECW footage only.
WWE: The Biggest Matches in ECW History 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.
