Not sure if anyone has posted this but this stuff drives me nuts.

I also wish they would just the Saturday as the air date rather than whatever bizarre method they use as it doesn't typically match the taping date either.

1982 seems okay with the exception of the first half of the 12/25/82 Reunion Arena show (not the Kerry-Flair full match) which used to be in Search and did air but now is gone again.

With 1983, they are missing these taping entirely:

 
Likely are the missing WCCW 59 & 60

2/4/83 Dallas (Syndicated TV Taping)
NWA World Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair beat Terry Gordy
Kabuki beat Checkmate DQ
Jose Lothario & Al Madril beat Michael Hayes & Buddy Roberts DQ
Texas Heavyweight Champion David Von Erich beat Bill Irwin
Tola Yatsu beat Sal Olivares
King Kong Bundy beat Al Madril
Brian Adias & Velvet McIntyre beat Magic Dragon & Judy Martin

The above taping in whole or in part has aired on Classics on Demand in the past

Likely are the missing WCCW 67 & 78

4/1/83 Dallas (State Fair Coliseum)
Killer Karl Krupp beat Magic Dragon
Jimmy Garvin beat Mike Bond
Jose Lothario drew King Kong Bundy
Michael Hayes beat Iceman Parsons COR
Tola Yatsu beat Kabuki COR
NWA World Heayweight champion Ric Flair beat Kevin Von Erich DQ
David Von Erich beat Terry Gordy, handcuff match

Never saw the above on Classics on Demand as far as I can recall so maybe not in the collection but is available through traders and also aired on ESPN.

Am I the only one bugged by this?

No, because to me the fact that this is basically the only classic library they are showing means they should take the time to get it right. If it aired on Classics, no reason to skip it here. Also, the dates they put on these don't even match the dates from Classics. It's just sloppy.

I'm annoyed by stuff disappearing too. Used to be that on Classics you'd get the warning of when it's dropping off. Now it seems totally at random.

They're also missing one half of the 3/4/83 taping - this is likely "WCCW 63"

BILL IRWIN VS. JOHN MANTEL
YOSHI YATSU VS. MIKE BOND
ICEMAN PARSONS VIDEO
KERRY VON ERICH VS. MICHAEL HAYES
KEVIN/DAVID VON ERICH VS. TERRY GORDY/BUDDY ROBERTS

Not sure if this aired before on Classics on Demand but it definitely in syndication and then on ESPN.

So stuff is dropping off the On-Demand portion? I thought that stuff was supposed to stay up "Forever".

Hard to believe I'd/we'd be pining for the old COD service a year after the Network launched...

There have been several things that I planned to see later, only to find them gone by the time I was ready to watch them...

What has dropped off the Network? I haven't noticed anything being removed at all???

I did notice his comment was from last April, but even then, I don't recall anything being removed... Their problem is they're not adding enough old content, specifically non-WWF... They haven't added a single territory show since the original guy in charge of the programming was fired back in MAY or whatever it was...

They are however now showing Prime Time and TNT.

I just don't get why they aren't following the COD model for putting out "old school" stuff. Seriously, 5-10 new vintage shows a month, just like the old service. Nobody would be complaining (much) and over time the library would build up very nicely as a carrot to old-school fans that were deciding on getting the service.

Seems so simple to me.

I saw some older WWF house shows up and then couldn't find them again.  I'm not sure if they eventually came back.  I know that sometimes things are up but also not catalogued properly, making it hard to find unless you know exactly what you're looking for.  They also move things around, like during ECW week when they took a bunch of ECW content out of the ECW section and put it into a section that I assume was meant to spotlight it, but actually wound up being confusing.

Can't argue with that at all... What makes no sense to me is that all of the stuff that was on the 24/7 is already digitalized... So it's not like they can't just dump it onto the Network.

I've found about an extra 20 TNT shows on the Network by just using the Search function but you can only find them by searching for a particular wrestler's name. These aren't in the Vault section yet and I guess they'll just keep doing as they are with 1 show per week

I haven't done this in a while, but sometimes a search for an individual wrestler brought up more stuff than was displayed by just going through the show menu.

edit: I totally missed that Landy had stated the same thing.
