Makes sense.

Given the way AWA TV is/was so interview-oriented, I don't think we will ever see a good solid run of AWA TV get released. Damn shame. Hope they have an ep or two with a big match on it they'll throw our way eventually.

The AWA tapes are one case where I wish someone like Bruce Tharpe had come along and done something like NWA on Demand. It's a niche within a niche within a niche audience of course...but it's not gonna be seen any more than if Verne had kept it and Greg was still pumping out PPVs in the Minnesota area. Less even I am sure.

Ah well...
EDIT: To be clear, I am talking about TV before they went to ESPN, from the old studios in Minny. Cycling the interviews on separate reels (and likely making matching them up with their proper TV tapes, if they even made it back to the AWA offices when they were done, impossible) really kills the appeal of the regular weeks of TV. Just the way they did things...doesn't translate well outside of those that grew up watching it.
