As you know WWE “The Best of WCW Clash of the Champions” hit stores on DVD and Blu-ray formats across the United States yesterday (buy it).
The first news bit we heard regarding the release was from various readers getting in touch to say they are struggling to find the Blu-ray edition in any store. One reader, a Best Buy employee, informed us that a quick check of inventory revealed none of the stores local to them had the Blu-ray version stocked. The item is also currently “backordered” at Bestbuy.com. It is however shipping out from various online retailers, such as here.
The other news was that there are two store exclusives being offered. The first of which is the Best Buy exclusive with the two extra matches, whilst there is a Rise and Fall of WCW double pack available at FYE. Pics of both are shown below.
Best Buy Exclusive – 2 Bonus Matches
The two extra matches are confirmed to be those previously reported. This version has a different UPC (6-51191-95090-4), which is present on a sticker over the original UPC, in the same fashion as the FYE exclusive Best of Nitro DVD last year.
