“OMG! Vol. 2: The Top 50 Incidents in WCW History” is the next WWE DVD/Blu-ray ready to hit the shelves, releasing to both North America and UK/Europe this month!
We can confirm that a version with a free WCW beer koozie inside has been found already in FYE stores. Thanks to Daniel Aldape for the photo. No indications yet that this is a store exclusive but we do know that there are copies of the DVD without the bonus included.
Below are two EXCLUSIVE first look video clips from the new WCW OMG! DVD. In both previews you will notice former WCW announcer Tony Schiavone making an appearance.
The DVD and Blu-ray has a main countdown portion as seen in the second clip, which runs for over 2 hours in total. The “RoboCop” chapter is ranked #32 in the countdown. The rest of the set is made up of more than 20 extras, a mixture of WCW matches and moments.

I know this is off topic but has anyone else been having problems with Amazon on WWE pre-orders? The last year every blu-ray I’ve pre-ordered has shipped way late, like my Paul Heyman BR still has not shipped and it came out Tuesday. The idea of pre-ordering is to make sure you get a copy soon after its release, not waiting two weeks past the release date. I think I am done with Amazon which leaves me with less options in the future. Is this a problem with anyone else?
Shane, I live in the UK and spend alot of money on Amazon, but have had to cut down due to their rubbish delivery times – they have become awful. I’ve waited 9 – 10 business days for some items, whereas Play, Zavvi and certain ebayyers can deliver items to me in 2 days, sometimes next day!
Of all the in packaging exclusives I’ve seen, this one might just be the oddest. A beer koozie? At least its something different and I admit I will try to find this at FYE first now. Anyone heard if this koozie will be in the Blu-ray?
Nice to see Tony Schiavone on a wwe release…can’t wait to pick this up next week.
Might be worth mentioning in another news article that Fremantle is re-releasing a stackload of titles to the UK on August 18. According to Amazon.co.uk’s release schedule, they are: Greatest Rivalries, Michaels vs. Hart (Blu), Chris Jericho bio (DVD), DX: One Last Stand (Blu), Greatest Stars of the 90s (DVD), Greatest Superstars of the 21st Century (Blu), Hell in a Cell (DVD), Hulk Hogan Unreleased (DVD), Iron Will (DVD), Randy Savage Collection (DVD), OMG (Blu), Randy Orton bio (Blu), Royal Rumble 2011 (Blu), SummerSlam 2011 (Blu), Best of SNME (DVD), Big Show bio (DVD), Ladder Match 2 (Blu), True Story of WM (Blu), Viva La Raza (DVD) and WrestleMania 21 (DVD).
Also, the Shawn Michaels and Zack Ryder Superstar Collection titles are being released for the first time. I think I know the answer, but I’m wondering if titles such as Hell in a Cell and Iron Will will be remastered to include the original WWF logos? Also, this is the first time OMG has been available on Blu-Ray here with the North American cover (it previously had the Cena/Big Show/Edge shot from WM25).
Pretty pleased with the news, as there were a couple of titles I didn’t pick up from Silver Vision first time around that I’ll likely get this time. Keep ’em coming Fremantle!
sounds cool.. I might change my ss 2011 and rr 2011 to Bluray, the rest I already have,, I hope Freemantle is working on a Bluray edition of MITB 2011, since it was an absolute winner in their first poll, where they asked which dvd they should produce as aBluray.
I really wish they’d take old sets, digipaks especially, and release them on blu-ray. I’d like to see Hogan Unreleased and Hart Family on blu-ray.
Agreed, SRB. I’d particularly like the Shawn Michaels: Heartbreak & Triumph set on Blu-Ray. Released a couple of months before WWE started broadcasting in HD, I was pretty surprised to see (courtesy of the Raw 100 set) that this HBK documentary was actually filmed in HD! So the footage exists, it’s just not available, which is a tad frustrating. Great doc too, which I watch regularly, so it’d definitely be worth the upgrade.
I’ll probably buy SummerSlam 2011 on Blu-Ray (which I passed on at the time), and the OMG set. Coincidentally, I was looking for the latter on Amazon and eBay recently, and it was pretty hard to get hold of, so these re-releases make life easier. Am actually quite surprised the Lesnar Blu-Ray isn’t being included. Need that bad boy too.
and a bad boy it is indeed, the Brock Lesnar BR.. 😉
when they are doing it, Freemantle might as well re-release all of the HD filmed material..just think about the Edge/Undertaker feud and above all, the HBK/Y2J feud from 2008, all in full hd.. only obsticale is the success grade of the upcoming Network in UK and Europe.. if it will be a success, I guess Freemantle will not spend money and time on re-releasing, but focus on new releases…up untill the point where discs may not be “good for business anymore”, if ya know what I mean!? 🙁
I think the content itself will be untouched with no updates and basically just re-releases with Fremantle’s logo on the packaging, the disc, disclaimers in the beginning, etc.
Still can’t get over that cover being wrong – Shane did not wear a suit when he showed up on the final Monday Night Nitro – he wore a gray turtleneck sweater that evening. I know its something minor (something major would be having a match – be it a picture or a listing – be on the cover/back cover and not be shown on the DVD/Blu-Ray) but still you think someone would get it right. Perhaps Shane did not want himself being on a cover of a DVD/Blu-Ray wearing a gray turtleneck sweater?
Looks like they very consciously wanted it to look that way. Because Shane never held a WCW microphone while wearing a suit, it must be there for a reason. Bad cover in general though.
A much more simple explanation could be that WWE has no photographs from the final Nitro. Have you ever seen one? On Sting’s WWE.com photos there are only screen grabs of him with Ric Flair. I’ve never checked but you could watch the final Nitro and see if there are any ringside photographers.
WWE’s lifework is to manipulate..wrestling is manipulating, just like movie or theater.. so, to manipulate a cover so it fits in with rest of the concept, I guess it is acceptable..but, it is for the expected standards of WWE actually kind of non-professional and they should know that die-hard fans…among those are DVD/Bluray collectors…would notice.
But as you say.. its a minor, and boy, are we looking forward to this one.. just not the song.. but, still not as worse as the Top 50 Finishing moves bingo balls.. 🙂
