So, since Friday you’ve been hearing of WWE’s plans to release a new WCW themed DVD, specifically The Best of NWA/WCW Clash of the Champions. Now it’s time for us to exclusively reveal some first details on the project.
We can confirm the new release will be a 3-Disc DVD collection, and for the first time WWE will produce a WCW compilation of matches on Blu-ray format, which will be a 2-Disc set. Taking this into account we know the set is to be a “Best of” style, rather than a full Anthology.
WWE have not yet made a final decision on a name for the production, so as of now it’s listed on the schedule as simply “WWE: WCW Clash of the Champions”. That’s bound to change later.
The release date of May 22nd, 2012 to the United States can also be confirmed.

Here’s the official synopsis for the feature, exclusively revealed by WWEDVDNews.com!
For close to a decade, professional wrestling fans loved Clash of the Champions, a series of supercards that aired on TBS, featuring the biggest stars of first NWA and the WCW. Over the course of 35 events from 1988 through 1997, fans were treated to championship contests, grudge matches, and spectacular moments.
Many of these matches have never been released on home video until now.
The Best of the Clash of the Champions, hosted by 3-time NWA World Heavyweight Champion and WWE Hall of Famer, “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, will highlight some of the greatest matches in the event’s ten-year history and features fan favorites Ric Flair, Sting, The Road Warriors, Lex Luger, the Four Horsemen, the nWo, and so many more.
Amazon is already taking pre-orders for the March 22nd release over here.
