Does anybody know of a WWE email or phone number that they will actually answer?  
I want to ask if they would consider selling specified footage?  Somebody told me that the NFL will do that but it is very pricey.  
I want to ask about 1974-1975 TV programming to see if it really exists. 
The emails that I send are never returned.  The phone numbers end up going to voice mail abs never returned.
I have attempted to use phone numbers and emails of specific people but still nothing.

Well, just judging by the responses you've received from them thus far in your quest for an answer,  I'd say the answer is, "go take a flying fuck, we don't give two shits enough ourselves to even attempt to go bother looking to see if the footage exists....& no".

I just look at it as bad business, but then again, it is still rasslin'.

I have contacted the NFL and other major corporations with inquiries in the past, and I usually received some type of response.

I have never told them what I am actually asking for specifically. I have requested a contact to speak with somebody regarding old footage and availability.

Are you in any way even loosely connected to a media outlet? Might help

Nope. 
I was just contacting them as a citizen.   I think media would be one favorable track and I think maybe a corporate inquiry would be the other.  
In most cases, you would receive a canned e-mail response or a phone call explaining that the content of the WWE library is not accessible for any type of requests, blah, blah, ... blah.
I have not even been in the position to make a formal inquiry about specific footage.  I have received nothing.

It's a matter of finding someone that will actually answer his question. At one time I exchanged emails with Brian Solomon , who had worked for the WWE about footage. He is no longer there. he is a Twitter-contact of mine so I will ask him who one would ask about such and see if he has a 'good lead'.

You would think that they would have a common reference point to field any inquiries dealing with the library/old footage.

I sincerely doubt that WWE wants to encourage these types of inquiries from fans, and even if they did there's no way to justify paying someone to be a contact for if when there's only 3 people out there who care.

I don't know.  If I was an advertiser or some other corporation and wanted to use WWE footage or obtain the footage, you would think that there were would be a contact person. 
Also, they do have a general staff who answer general questions from the public, and you would think that in that type of business structure that they would be responsible for replying with some type of response...any response.   
It is still odd, even for rasslin', with a corporation that big.  This is not like some small back-room wrestling business in Mississippi.

I don't know about this situation specifically, but mostly sports leagues aren't interested in selling video piecemeal to the public. They'll license clips for movies or commercials or documentaries, but there's not enough money in going through the archives and making a copy for one person who wants to buy it. If they think it has commercial potential, they'll put in on a DVD and sell it that way. It's a non-starter for them, which would explain why e-mails and calls don't get returned.
