beej, 


Were you the one who had always wanted to see the third Executioner match, again?  

That show may be coming up in the timespan for the WWWF shows to be aired on the WWE network.  

I do think you should get to see one of your favorite tag teams.... White Wolf & Strongbow.

I've alkready contacted Hammetime and he for sure thinks I'm an out of control crack addict, er, WWWF TV addict.

That match would be so wonderful !!!!

It probably doesn't hold up over time -- but it sure was great at the time

Yeah, but it was a year short for the Arion heel turn storyline and the end title run of The Valiants. ‘75 was a great year.

I'm not saying this to piss on anyone's corn flakes. I'm going to stick to my guns on what I've been saying for years. I don't think there is anything magical in Vince's vault that hasn't been seen already by the tape trading community going back to VCR Times. Plus the fact that they are only putting up about 70 hours of content from the 70's leads me to believe we are going to be seeing alot of Angel Mercado and Steve King matches. I desperately want to proved wrong and run out of town on a rail, but I don't think I will be.

It could also be that some of the tape from that era is so damaged beyond repair and isn't fit to be shown.

How about this TV show.


They bring out Ivan Koloff and introduce him as the new champion. Not in 1976-1979 timeframe but that had to be INSANE

According to the reports, they are putting up 92 episodes of WWWF All Star Wrestling from 1976 through 1979. At about 45 min per episode (no commercials) that's about 70 hours of content. That is roughly in line with the size of recent "dumps" of content they have uploaded, so it seems about right.

With about 52 episodes per year x 4 years, there should be about 208 episodes aired between 1976 through 1979. 92 / 208 is 0.442 which means they are uploading 44.2 % of the All Star Wrestling shows from that time period.  That's almost half.

There's going to be a TON of stuff that has never showed up in the tape trading community. There's almost a 50/50 chance that the third Executioner footage with be uploaded. Other rarities like Bruiser Brody tagging with Stan Hansen have a better than 50/50 chance since it happened a few times on All Star Wrestling.

After the Bruno MSG match. Figure over the summer of 1976

I think it was Landry who posted on KM that ‘75 episode will be shown, also.

Maybe getting close to The Valiants and the Arion heel turn.

Year and a half gap 1976-1977



http://www.wwenetworknews.com/2018/03/03/exclusive-full-episode-listing-for-upcoming-all-star-wrestling-wwe-network-classic-content-ranging-from-1975-to-1980/




No 3rd Executioner. No Hansen with coins in the lariat-pad.

Heh. I still clearly remembers Vince's outrage when the coins came out. I think it was during the interview but my memory could be foggy.

Two things.  First, it doesn't mean they won't fill in the gaps.  Second, if 1977 isn't well represented, at least we have all of the episodes that came out for Championship Wrestling that they played on Classics on Demand.

Stuff I want to see
The Arion heel turn
The Ivan Putski vs Johnny Valiant match where Putski arrives late with his suitcase in hand and the Valiants hit him with it his head goes thru and they open the suitcase up and Putski's head in under his clothes.
Denucci & Rivera win tag belts from the Valiants
Blassie eneak attack on Morales with the broken arm

Seeing even most of these would be great.

The Arion heel turn during the match with The Valiants would be the one I want to see the most. (Anybody have a date for this match?) (When did it air on TV?) 

Denucci & Rivera win the belts against The Valiants would be my second selection.
