WCW, ECW collections headline future WWE DVD releases

From Wrestling Update Online comes a nice rundown of the upcoming WWE DVD and Blu Ray releases for the next few months. The link also has Amazon pre-order information so be sure to check it out.

I’m most looking forward to The Best of WCW Clash of the Champions, which is to be released on May 22, and The Biggest Matches in ECW History, to be released on June 5. These collections will feature matches not as common on other DVD releases as well as others that have never been released at all.

WrestleMania XXVIII will be available May 8, with a Falls Count Anywhere compilation due June 26 and a new Undertaker DVD chronicling the 20-0 streak out July 24.

Video: Brock Lesnar returns to WWE

In case you somehow hadn’t heard, Brock Lesnar returned to WWE last night during Raw. While Lesnar probably isn’t back for a full time schedule, rumors are that he has signed a one-year deal with the company. It seems likely that he’ll wrestle John Cena on an upcoming pay-per-view (my guess would be SummerSlam) after last night’s events.

One thing that hasn’t been talked about much is what a great job Michael Cole did in framing the moment. He made Lesnar out to be an absolute monster and foreshadowed that things are about to change. For all the bad things we say about Cole, this was an instance where he did a tremendous job.

Video: Footage of crowd going nuts during Raw dark match

The Miami crowd for last night’s post-WrestleMania Raw was absolutely amazing. The whole night the fans in attendance chanted for Daniel Bryan and busted out loud “Yes!” chants reminiscent of the “What!” serenades we’ve heard in the past. When Daniel Bryan wrestled in a six-man tag match after Raw went off the air, the crowd was even hotter. Below is fan video of the match (before WWE inevitably has it removed.)
