according to 1wrestling.com, courtesy of 411mania.com.

And considering the talent they've shooed away (and the passage of time), I don't know who on the roster could benefit from releasing the material.

Maybe Lance, Dreamer and Storm could gain some momentum from a hyped DVD release, but the Dudz are already established. RVD, I suppose, is the guy who could gain the most IF they ever put a world title on him.

They could sell some more Austin DVDs with his ECW run, but one wonders if Steve's peaked as a licensed property.

Austin will still work as a licensed property, with him being on TV a lot, and not wrestling. People will want to see Austin matches, so they can put his WCW/ECW/WWF stuff on it.

From the Vault: Steve Austin is a VERY good idea, and should be their next release. They've covered his Attitude stuff pretty well on previous releases, now they can get the '97 matches, his ECW promos, and some of his best WCW matches on it.




There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

Steve Austin: Before he was Stone Cold, would be a good idea.

A Rob Van Dam DVD would probably sell well. There's already a Dudley Boyz DVD out there but WWE could do their own with ECW and WWE matches.

I'm sure the DVD's are relatively cheap to produce if they just did some without filming new "video footage" like they did for Mysterio.

I remember reading the plan is to setup a Video-On-Demand internet site where you just go and rent whatever you want for like a week for a few bucks.

All right!! ANOTHER wrestling promotions tape library and go and collect dust on WWE shelves.

I really hope they start using the ECW and WCW library. Hell even use them for the wrestler's Titan Trons. Add some old footage in there to make fans look at them again.

If their ownership of the NWA/WCW footage they've owned for several years is any indication, they will use the ECW footage on Confidential; and maybe video montages for some wrestlers. I don't expect them to do anything significant with the tapes (unless they start the long-rumored wrestling channel).



Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.

Finally....the ROCK (realrock104.com) has come back to Youngstown.

I have Digital cable and have a channel like that now (but its not wrestling related). Its a channel that has a list of movies (most are current ppv movies some are just left ppv and on video/DVD movies) and instead of waiting for a certain time for a movie to come on the ppv channels or go rent/buy the damn thing you can view it at anytime you choose (for a small price of course). So I guess WWE could do it like that.

It was bound to happen sooner or later

Maybe (just MAYBE) WWE was playing it smart for once by waiting to see if they could get their hands on ECW's stuff *before* they went nuts with the "Everything you could ever want to know about Chris Jericho" SuperDVDs or whatever?

I would like to believe that. That they were waiting to get the ECW footage before making DVDs of Jericho, Benoit, RVD, Storm, etc. However, if they were going to use all this footage at their disposal then they would've already made a Ric Flair DVD since they do not need to wait for any ECW footage for that one. I think we need to get a group of us wieners to raid the video library at Titan Towers and just take everything we can.
