As the title of this topic suggests, I'm attempting to make a list of which countries have known professional wrestling footage from before the year 1970. I'll be using this post to list every country I come across where footage is known to exist so it's easier for those interested to locate them. Anytime anything new is added I'll also leave a reply for the same reason. Below is a list of the countries that I know for sure have some existing footage. Next to each one, as a reference guide, I've written in bold the kind of footage that is available. Also above the list is a "key" explaining the differences between each type of footage:

Key

- filmreel = footage recorded on film with no obvious edits.
- filmreel clips = highlights recorded on film with sound.
- silent filmreel = footage recorded on film with no obvious edits apart from sound.
- silent filmreel clips = highlights recorded on film with no sound.
- newsreel clips = news highlights recorded on film with sound.
- newsreel clips with subtitles = news highlights recorded on film with sound and subtitles.
- silent newsreel clips = news highlights recorded on film with no sound.
- silent newsreel clips with subtitles = news highlights recorded on film with no sound but with subtitles.
- television = broadcast television footage.
- television clips = edited broadcast television footage.

List Of Countries With Known Pre-1970 Pro-Wrestling Footage

- Argentina (newsreel clips || newsreel clips with subtitles || silent newsreel clips with subtitles).
- Australia (filmreel clips || silent filmreel clips || newsreel clips || silent newsreel clips || television).
- Austria (newsreel clips).
- Bolivia.
- Brazil (newsreel clips).
- Canada (filmreel clips || silent filmreel clips || television).
- Colombia.
- Czechoslovakia.
- Denmark.
- Finland.
- France.
- Germany.
- Greece.
- Ireland.
- Italy.
- Japan.
- Mexico.
- New Zealand.
- Rhodesia.
- Russia.
- South Africa.
- Spain.
- Switzerland.
- United Kingdom.
- United States.

If anyone knows of any countries or any available footage I'm missing from the list then please let me know!
