Revealed today at Facebook.com/WWEDVDNews, here are two exclusive video previews of WWE’s Clash of the Champions, and ECW Unreleased DVD releases.
The Best of WCW Clash of the Champions (hosted by Dusty Rhodes) is released next Tuesday to the United States, whilst the ECW collection of unreleased matches (hosted by Joey Styles) hits stores in June. Both titles will be available on DVD and Blu-ray disc formats.
The Best of WCW Clash of the Champions (buy it)
ECW UNRELEASED Vol. 1 (buy it)
How did these matches make the cut? ( other than an obvious attempt to give royalties to current WWE employees/friends ):
Ricky Morton vs ivon koloff
Midnight express vs rock n roll express
Fabulous freebirds vs young pistols
15-man battle royal full jobbers
Steven regal vs dustin Rhodes
Medusa vs bull nakano
That’s an entire disc wasted on crap!
I just picked up Clash of the Champions. Very disappointing set. If you want to watch Ric Flair do his usual 5 spots over and over and over and over again and have the same match with different opponents, this set is for you. If you like low production values and terrible matches, this set is for you.
This set pails in comparison to the Rise and Fall of WCW, Starrcade, and WCW Nitro sets.
Save your money.( oh, and there was nothing special about the walmart release )
i think subtitles will be needed whenever dusty rhodes speak.
Not sure if I am going to buy the ECW or not have not decide yet on it I have all the matches that they have on there anyway .
Was anyone able to pick up a Clash DVD at Best Buy? Are the bonus matches on there?
Maybe not ’til Tuesday, the street date.
Best Buy was (is?) notorious for jumping street date. So I figured I’d ask…
No harm asking. Somebody will no doubt update on it soon.
You can buy uncut ECW dvds from RF Video or Highspots. For 30.00 each, you can get RVDs whole TV title reign. Raven vs Sandman, Raven vs Dreamer, Best of Cactus Jack, Entire ECW World title set, Entire Tag team title set. All the sets are 5 disc and up. I think best of Cactus Jack is 9 disc. So they may come on Dvd r but just back em up.
Those sets are pretty awesome, i have Raven vs Sandman, Raven vs Dreamer, Best of the Arena and Best of Eddie Gillbert…fantastic sets. Quality is pretty good too.
Thinking of getting Best of Cactus Jack and RVD’s TV title reign along with the History of ECW title and Tag titles.
What site did you order them from? I’m skeptical about ordering from Rf Video . But High Spots charges a lot to ship to Canada. Rf Video charges like 6 bucks, Highspots charges almost 20.00
I live in Canada too…I ordered Best of the Arena from RF Video couple months back and shipping wasn’t that bad, it shipped about 2 days after my order and took about a week to arrive. I did read horror stories about their service last year, but decided to give it a try and was pleasantly surprised.
The rest i got from Highspots…shipping was pretty high, but they packed it extremely well, so didn’t receive loose discs and shipping was very fast…took about 3 days to arrive and no custom charges. Highspots is excellent, and they even gave ECW House Party 99 DVD for free when i put the “FREEDVD” code during their sale last month. Excellent service.
Hmm thanks for the reply. Im not sure what to do. I find 20.00 really crazy expensive. But i tried looking through Amazon.com and they actually had it cheaper… down to 12.00. Weird because its from HS but through Amazon. SO maybe i may get it through HS and just pay the 12.00. Thanks again for your reply.
Try HS’ ebay as well it’s always much cheaper for me to order through there for shipping to the UK than through their main site.
Thanks man! I actually saw that HS is cheaper through Amazon as well. I will most likely go that route.
Its a shame that WWE owns a full uncut and uncensored ECW library that only few will ever see.
Who ripped these videos off of the DVD?
They need some new software. The audio is out of sync and the video looks like crap.
I can’t wait to watch these on Blu-Ray!
Me, but you’re welcome nonetheless. They can viewed in better quality if watching directly on Facebook. Very decent quality actually.
Just meant as small previews in the run up to their releases.
You need to set your settings to 16×9 when capturing the video.
Its compressed the 16×9 image to 4×3
Got it. I know that, but I just haven’t seen a setting for it and it wasn’t that important for a 2min preview. The audio sync problems seem to happen every time, sadly.
By the way, I noticed the DVD image (if that’s what you call it..) is named ECW_BIGGEST_MATCHES, which confirms that was the plan at some point. I believe it was you who questioned that report here so thought I’d tell you. 🙂
I also noticed Dusty Rhodes had a lisp of some sort. Fix that too would ya DB? lol
I’m on it.
im super ready for both of these sets. im going to grab the bluray and dvd on both sets.
I like the format of these two DVD sets. Having Joey Styles host the ECW DVD is great. The format of matches, interviews in between, more matches is awesome. Just like the Best of WCW Nitro set.
When are we going to get a match listing for the falls count anywhere/streetfight release?
I laughed so hard when Foley snagged Whipwreck’s face haha
Just saw 3 copies of Clash on DVD at Kmart, so good luck on snagging an early copy. No luck on the blu ray there though, so I guess I’ll wait
Like the look of that ECW video. It would be awesome if they filmed the Joey Styles segments in front of an ECW banner with shaky in and out camera work – like an old school ECW segment. #ECWOriginalStyle 🙂
