Does the WWF own Stampede Wrestling footage? There was recently a video of Bockwinkel vs Bret Hart on Youtube that was taken down by the WWE for copyright footage but I think it might be back up.

The WWE owns the Stampede library. There are some episodes and some individual matches on WWE Network right now. What that library consists of is hard to say.

They do but from memory
a) Bret Hart has some control over his footage
b) Martha Hart might have some control over Owen Hart's footage

Therefore, WWE has to tread carefully with what they show from that library.

There are not any episodes available. A few years back they added a couple, but since Bret owns the footage of his matches, they pulled them. They have added some non-Bret stuff to the Hidden Gems.

Even if they did have episodes, at their current pace they would be added sometime in 2040. So just after WWF Spotlight and NWA Main Event, but still before any AWA.

And yes, I'm being optimistic.

I hadn't realized the episodes of Stampede went away. Taking into mind that the WWE has control of the tape library from Stampede and it came via the Hart family, how is it that Bret can control the airing of footage featuring him and what purpose would it serve for him to deny the WWE the right to use it or at least make using it difficult given his current seemingly warm relationship with the WWE?

Does the WWE have any rights to the shows that aired on TSN?

That was more during the Owen Hart and Chris Benoit years.


And Tamalie, maybe it is the WWE and not Bret that made the decision. They probably do not want to pay Bret any more royalties than they already do.
