So we have enough traders here.  WWWF/WWF wise I "think" I know what is out there.  My collection is most likely the best quality I am aware of.  I'll mention what I would like to find.
Backlund Maivia - all MSG shows:  Backlund Snuka - stretcher match; Backlund Zbyszko (there is news footage of it); Bruno vs. Slaughter

On the WWF side in like to see the house show they had at CNE in 95/96 with Shawn v Dust in a ladder match.

I’d also like to see the Legion of Doom v Natural Disasters title change from 92

I would like to see all of the missing MSG shows from 1981-1986. The one that really sticks out for me is the one where Snuka fought Albano and he bladed like a fucking drunken moron with a straight razor.

Wait a sec.  Haven't had my morning coffee but might have that.  No promises but kind of recall it.  
Captain gets the splash and takes down the aisle I think?

This one? Yeah, I have it.

WWF @ New York City, NY - Madison Square Garden - November 22, 1982
Televised on the MSG Network and USA Network - featured Vince McMahon & Gorilla Monsoon on commentary:
Curt Hennig fought Eddie Gilbert to a 20-minute time-limit draw at 14:22 as Hennig had Gilbert covered following an elbow drop; prior to and after the bout, the two shook hands (Gilbert's MSG debut) (The Life and Times of Mr. Perfect)
SD Jones defeated Swede Hanson via disqualification at 9:20 after hanging Jones upside down in the corner and refusing to break for the referee; prior to the match, Nigerian promoter Power Mike was introduced to the crowd
WWF Jr. Heavyweight Champion Tiger Mask pinned Jose Estrada at 9:42

I have that also (MSG 11-22-82), it was posted on my old channel last year but not yet gotten around to posting it on my new one.
The Snuka-Backlund MSG show 4-26-82 wasn't televised so the only way you will see that is if the WWE Network puts it out.
Same thing with Bruno-Slaughter at MSG 12-08-80.

But we still have some hope.  Getting Backlund Race MSG and Sawyer/Rich from the Omni shocked me quite a bit.  
TWC my stuff has been hidden for a long time but happy to share with you.

Also to add, my stuff is commercial uncut. Some like that, some don't. I find it interesting.

Appreciate it.
After seeing what you contributed to that huge 20+ 1979 set of WWWF/WWF, I know you have to have some great gems buried away.
I love the Baltimore market specific promos.

The latest I've picked up is original ESPN airings of AWA from 1985-1987, not the common ESPN classics airings going around for years.
In about 3 weeks I'll be getting selected episodes of WWF All-Star and Championship Wrestling that are Samoan Feeds (2 weeks behind the U.S airings), that I'm told are from Peter Maivias collection.

I have one of those Samoan feeds as I recall.

Beej got a nice compilation of Pittsburgh films of Bruno title defenses a few years back that is really nice. Not sure if you have that yet but if not it's nice stuff. Someone was selling it on eBay. Personally shot footage as I recall.

Yes the Bruno Civic Center matches I shared over at XWT-Classics awhile back (I had bought a copy myself direct from Mike the owner).

I liked those a lot.  As discussed with some the new Pittsburgh footage of Backlund vs. High Chief were neat to see.

I would love to see commercial footage of Pedro-Don Leo at MSG 1973, Bruno-Don Leo at MSG 1974 and Bruno-Brody at MSG 1976

also the Backlund-Maivia series at MSG

You would think WWE Network would want to show more of The Rock's grandfather.  They have to have the Backlund High Chief MSG series in the archives.

as far as I can tell, Backlund-Maivia III is the only cage match at MSG that's never been shown

The Graham-Backlund rematch and Backlund-Graham III cage match from 78 are missing too (there is an All Japan broadcast of the cage match out there)
would love to see the MSG cards from early 78 land on the network, stranger things have happened
