The “OMG! ECW Top 50 Craziest Moments” DVD will unfortunately NOT see a release next year, instead we’ve just had word that it will be added to the WWE Network TONIGHT!
With a new, simplified title of “The Top 50 Incidents in ECW History”, the countdown feature that was originally produced for the 2016 DVD and Blu-ray set will now see the light of day on the Network, and it looks to have a total runtime of approximately 2 hours and 20 minutes.
Early word is that the “Authentic Untold Story of ECW” sit-down special recently filmed with several ECW Originals will air on the live stream immediately following RAW, while this resurfacing countdown of ECW moments will be added to the on-demand library around the same time.
As you may recall, the Home Video was scheduled for release this month (last week to be specific) – you can still see the product listings for it on Amazon [DVD here] [Blu-ray here]. However the title was cancelled and replaced by “Randy Orton: RKO Outta Nowhere”.
The synopsis for the Network version is identical to that of the DVD and reads as follows:
OMG! It’s back and this time with by far the craziest moments to date, as ECW rears its head on this series.
ECW was extreme and there is no shortage of OMG moments throughout its history. Hear exclusive interviews from ECW legends as they tell stories behind some of the craziest moments in ECW history!

I agree they mentioned that they were adding this set to their releases next year’s schedule. Actually read the article guys. Come on now.
Why are people acting like the above article said the set is NEVER going to get released? Good God, talk about jumping the gun.
Plus, all I remember is these OMG sets getting ripped to bits by people on here anyway when the last two came out; complaining about the OMG song and how little time they spend on each chapter, etc. Now all of a sudden people are clamouring for one.
we are 2.. I say that again.. 2, that are -what you say – “complaining”…now, I know, I’m damn important..buuuuut, even I have to admit, I really can not take credit for being “All people”. And I did definitely not biatch about 2 of the coolest releases that WWE has produced.
Besides..it really is about the mixed signals of informations that WWE more often than not are sending out.
It is definitely smart of the WWE to use their Network as a way to see if certain concepts would be profitable for them to release on physicals too..well, then do not advertise months in advance that there is possible a Bluray on its way..
keep it to air on the Network, then find out, how populare it is and if it is profitable for further release..and that way, WWE do not screw any segments of their fanbase.
To be fair, WWE never advertised anything about the ECW set being released on DVD/BR. It might have been on their internal schedule, but they never publicly announced anything.
You really like your dot, dot, dots, don’t you? …
Okaaay… got ya..
Thought, things could not get any worser after that lousy excuse of an main event from yet another mediocre show yesterday…but, noooo.. :
“let’s cancel a release project again, and turn it into Network Special, following our WWE logic, that WWE and WCW moments were counted down on physicals..but let’s just screw our fans that actually still care for collecting and present this vol. 3 of ECW moments on the 9.99’er only . Hell..wrestling fans are stupid, they never know or remember..like with Edge saying that he never lost a TLC match before he was defeated by Cena at Unforgiven ’06..”
I never understood these mixed signals of informations that WWE from time to time are sending..then again..do not understand the overall product the recent years either.
So now having the first 2 omg will be pointless for collection purposes because the 3rd and final one isn’t getting released on physical media. This is no surprise the network has crippled the DVD blu Ray sales and they are slowly getting rid of it. This site even reported that in Australia mad man was cancelling upcoming blu Ray releases due to poor sales. That was the deciding factor for me to “retire” from collecting. I’m also going to be selling some of my collection only Australia posting just ask and I’ll let u know what I have.
To clarify a little the Madman situation, they haven’t completely done away with WWE Blu-rays in Australia so you can still expect to see some for the bigger titles.
I’m sure if they can see that the ECW countdown has been popular on the network it will get a DVD release further down the line, like the Monday Night Wars series did.
On an unrelated note, needless to say after last night I take back all of my comments on other posts about being disappointed that Lesnar/Goldberg wouldn’t make the Best PPV Matches set, lol.
