I doubt it.  I believe WWE has been airing the handheld version for years so I doubt they have anything else.
Looks like WWE hadn't taken the time to find the real deal until now.  The version they just uploaded is mint-quality tv master.  It's loaded with post-interviews from the legends.  The whole thing is 50 mins.  Great hidden gem!


The interviews are 100% unedited. You get to see the interviewer and Freddie Blassie briefly discussing what he's going to say before he goes into full promo mode. Lots of zooming into noses as well.

Well now I'm interested and will definitely watch this.  I've seen the crappy version before but this sounds great.  I wonder why they never used the master before.

Watching Piper vs Valentine from a House show. I would love to see what they really have for Mid-Alantic/NWA besides the TV Shows & the Major Shows

Hidden Gems is the best part of the Vault and that's saying something. I wish they'd throw more stuff in there because I'm sure they have other great pieces of action that don't fit in any other real category for whatever reason. The Last Battle of Atlanta was on so many peoples' wish list it isn't funny, but my personal holy grail was The Battle of the Nature Boys. And while it's rough and not complete, just seeing them in the ring with each other was really cool and it basically made my collection "complete" in my eyes - everything from here on out would be a bonus. Then they dropped all of the All Star Wrestling. Really, REALLY hoping that they continue to upload classic content, but as was said in another thread...at some point, it won't be worth their time or investment.

There's a "hidden" hidden extra. After the Kokina Maximus vs. Sgt. Slaughter match, there's a 4 minute clip which appears to be a dark match from a WWF taping with Kokina squashing some poor jobber. There's no commentary, and the quality is pretty poor, but it looks to predate any of his WWF matches listed on any results site.

Why does the Vader v Simmons match have commentary? I don’t remember this airing on WCW programming. Did it air internationally?

In the UK, we only got WCW Worldwide, which almost certainly didn't have this match in its entirety.

WCW had some very random local shows in some markets, maybe it aired there.

I remember seeing bits and pieces of house show matches on tv during this same period shot in the same manner I just don’t remember commentary. I wonder if they dubbed commentary on a lot of this house show footage to use as filler if they needed it or if they had bigger plans for this stuff and it got scrapped along the way. 

I have the Flair v Steamboat house show match from 89 that is shot with 1 or 2 cameras that I believe was shown on the luxury box CCTV. Is it possible this was shot for the same reason and had live commentary for those in the boxes?


Maybe I’ll buy a shirt from WHW and ask tony when he calls me.

Bill Watts and a tv crew were flown to the 12/29/92 show in Philadelphia where Simmons was scheduled to lose the title to Big Van Vader, but Simmons no showed for which he was fined. The match was then held in Baltimore the next night and footage aired on the 1/9/93 WCW Saturday Night. WCW Main Event was pre-empted for 2 weeks in January 1993, it might have been intended for a full showing on one of those.

According to The Wrestling Observer, an announcement that #Progress and #ICW will start airing on the #WWE Network will be made at one of the two UK shows at Royal Albert Hall on June 18th and 19th

Thanks for clearing up where the footage aired

At the end of the Slaughter-Kokina match, WWE puts an Easter egg of Kokina in what I assume is a WWF try-out match against a jobber with the confederate flag on his ass. Hard cam only with a time stamp and tracking lines at the bottom of the screen, clearly never meant to air. I never knew Yokozuna wrestled a WWF match as Kokina, although it shouldn’t be that surprising.
