Looks like the store exclusive version of next week’s Best of Clash of the Champions DVD will be carried by Best Buy.
A scan of a Best Buy ad found at Examiner.com reveals it will be their exclusive and priced at $16.99 on release. This would explain why a listing for the release on Walmart’s site contained “BBY” and was quickly pulled.
Two extra matches are slated to be included on this set, namely The Midnight Express vs. The Fantastics from March 1988, and Hollywood Hogan vs. Ric Flair from August 1996.
Thanks to reader Bryan G for passing on this news.

The same release date of July 9th is referenced. This is not a definite answer that the unknown Silver Vision/WWE situation has now been resolved but might perhaps be a positive sign. Further updates are expected soon.

According to Mike Johnson at PWInsider the lawsuit filed against Floyd Mayweather Jr. and WWE, over legalities of the usage of Mayweather’s entrance theme at Wrestlemania 24, was dismissed last week in court. As you know, WWE removed the Wrestlemania 24 DVD and Blu-ray from sale whilst the dispute was ongoing, but as a result of the new ruling they are now free to produce and sell the title again, should they choose to.
Jesse Ventura’s commentary has been muted on the upcoming Clash of the Champions DVD/BD set. It also appears Michael Buffer’s ring introductions have been cut out.
