We will probably see the Superstars of Wrestling shows from before 1992 eventually. It will be a matter of the WWE either putting this off until it gets low on classic content and it becomes more cost effective, and possibly easier technologically, to do the mass editing or when they go to the rights holder of Superstars of Wrestling and make him a good offer to get those rights off his hands or lease the rights. I can't imagine Albert Patterson and the WWA make any real money off of Superstars of Wrestling these days. Throwing the guy a sum he can live with would make sense. They could also wait until he either lets the rights lapse, however unlikely, or until he dies (he's probably in his early 70s) when the rights might open up or his heirs might be up for making a deal.
