Who owns that?  I always thought that was generic music that you didn't have to pay for, like the Hardy Boyz theme (that ESPN also has used for football highlights) and so many others they've used over the years.

I'm always disappointed when they don't put anything new into these collections. Everything here is already on the Network. They must have some early footage of his dark matches or his Memphis stuff they could put on. Seeing his early matches with his commentary added from today would be very interesting.

Interesting gems - who owns the Bulldogs vs RnR Express footage? Well, WWE must own it... But who owned it? Verne ?

I'm not sure that date (Feb 23, 1989) is correct. The Bulldogs were wrestling in Stampede and had a match scheduled that day in Lethbridge, AB. The RnR Express were in the Memphis territory.

The correct date was Feb. 2, 1989. The match was held in Kansas City as part of a co-promotion between Bob Geigel and All Japan. An AWA ring was used for the show and that match in particular aired on AWA TV.
