The penultimate episode of The Undertaker’s documentary is now up. It covers the Saudi debacle with Goldberg, the fall-out with Vince over the AEW autograph signing, and the Extreme Rules match with Reigns against Shane and McIntyre.

I'm glad there is some attention to this, but I'm pretty sure we had all of these on Classics on Demand.

COD went up to the end of December of '89, right? So these should have been in the hopper anyway. Would love to see them get into 1990.

Yep, December of '89 was the stopping point on Classics on Demand.  I don't see any reason why '90, '91, and '92 shouldn't be added. 
Here's a question:  What WWE Golden Era footage has been converted and added since the inception of the Network?
 
Off the top of my head:
 
-       No new Prime Time episodes
-       TNT was already finished
-       No new house shows
-       SNME was already finished
-       Coliseum Home Videos?  Most (if not all of those available) were on Classics on Demand

On the list of things not on the Network that must be in the archives somewhere would be the entire run of the C show, Superstars of Wrestling from its inception in 1984 until the late summer of 1986 and then it became Spotlight from then until whenever its run ended in the mid 1990s.

This was a recap show, but it was a lot like All American Wrestling in the sense that it pulled stuff from all over to fill out the show. During the first year, a lot of the matches were from the St. Louis tapings that have turned up here and there but of which there is a lot that hasn't been seen since. Later it would air stuff from the A and B shows, but would occasionally slip in matches from the arena house shows at MSG, Boston Garden, and so on.

This show never got a lot of clearance, generally airing on weaker stations and/or in disadvantageous stations, so later still, when the show was in a full on mode of "no one's watching, so let's do whatever goofy stuff makes us laugh" it had things like Sean Mooney as his heel "twin brother" Ian Mooney and things like Sensation Sherri and Brooklyn Brawler as Sean's co-hosts with the everyone fighting to contain laughter. As a cult show, it would be neat to see it.

I'm guessing "Superstars of Wrestling" in any incarnation will never see the light of day unless Vince pays off Albert Patterson for the trademark.

They added a lot of Championship Wrestling from 1975-80 that wasn't available before, didn't they?
Plus there were some unseen singular bouts added from the WWWF archives in the Hidden Gems series. Don't have a list handy but there were a few.

I don't think WWWF stuff from 1975-1980 would be considered "Golden Era" per se, but we are glad to have it.  I think there could have been a Hidden Gem here or there, but considering the Network is 6 years old, this is almost nothing.  Classics on Demand had "The Best of WWF Volumes 1-20 (omitting vol 16) as well, and those haven't even made it over yet.

They could just label it "Superstars" like they did for the New Generation stuff and bring it over with a few edits.  They have matches from Superstars of Wrestling all over the Prime Time episodes and it's no big deal.  I think they could easily pull it off with just a little effort.

Yeah, I remember some of that Ian Mooney stuff.  That stuff is almost nowhere on YouTube to the best of my knowledge.  Wrestling Spotlight would be a fantastic addition to the Network.

 For a one off match they can just blur out the banner. But full shows would take a lot more work because they'd have to redo the intros and all that stuff and I imagine it would be a pain in the ass.

"Wrestling Spotlight" would absolutely be fun to see. When I was in full smark mode in 1988-1990, I remember checking the weekly TV listings to see if it would pop-up. In my area, it was only available on New York's WWOR; which was not carried by my cable system, yet still listed for the small systems that carried it. Such a tease.

Finally saw one or two episodes via YouTube, a few years ago. Like Prime Time, the host segments were where the fun was.

Is there a reason USA's All-American Wrestling episodes haven't been added? I don't even remember seeing one from the On Demand/24-7 days. Are there trademark issues with it? I remember a lot of quirky stuff with Mean Gene trying to do some Bob Newhart-ish phonecall antics, by talking to someone off-screen.
