OMG Vol. 2: The Top 50 Incidents in WCW History review

In all of professional wrestling, the Monday Night Wars are one of the most memorable and cherished times for any of the fans who were around then to experience them. The WWE’s biggest rival-WCW- though no longer around, is still one of the most talked about and watched promotions ever and 13 years after it’s unfortunate and inevitable demise, WWE has released a DVD collection to remember all of the memorable moments had in WCW- good and bad.

OMG Vol. 2: The Top 50 Incidents in WCW History is a collection any wrestling fan needs to own and watch over and over again. Any memorable moment is captured perfectly here.

Loaded with interviews with many former WCW stars who were there and a part of these moments as well as WWE superstars who either grew up watching it or were legit fans at the time, you get some of the most honest opinions of how everything happened.

OMG Vol. 2 touches on every era of WCW and is a beautiful in-depth look at what made WCW so great and what also led to its downfall.

Many moments you might have forgotten about are re-hashed on the countdown including DDP posing as La Parka and defeating Randy Savage as well as pretending to join the NOW and then immediately turning on Scott Hall and Kevin Nash with a Diamond Cutter. They also bring back “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan joining Team Canada, Goldberg’s heel turn, “the finger poke of doom” (Hulk Hogan winning the WCW title by poking Kevin Nash on the chest and Nash taking the fall), the Sting-Vampiro Human Torch Match and much more.

Some of the more infamous moments- and not so proud- include the Shockmaster blunder, Robocop, the Judy Bagwell on a Pole Match, Pinata on a Pole Match, 49ers Match, Vince Russo and David Arquette winning the WCW title, “Cactus Jack Lost in Cleveland” and more.

Ending the countdown are the two most infamous and historic moments- not just in WCW history- but in all of wrestling. Number 2 is WWE purchasing WCW, which you’d think would be number 1 with how important it was but number 1 falls to the most infamous heel turn of all time- Hulk Hogan revealing himself as the third man and working with The Outsiders to take over WCW, turning heel and creating the NWO- which started the Monday Night Wars and catapulted WCW to another level.

Capping off this impressive DVD is a collection of matches that include a scaffold match, a three-tiered cage match, the infamous Bash at the Beach 1996 match were Hogan turned heel and much more.

Any moment you can think of that stood out in WCW is included and they didn’t leave anything out. It’s truly impressive-and a bit nostalgic to see and relive these moments and to feel for a few hours that WCW is alive and well once again.

Rating: 10/10
