"Parts Unknown" is a country, isn't it?

UPDATE: I've added the type of Canadian footage that's known to exist next to the word "Canada" in the list in the first post.

UPDATE: I've made a change next to Argentina in the list of countries in the first post. I'd put in error that there are survivng filmreel clips, it's actually newsreel clips that I'm aware of existing.

I'm afraid not no. Maybe they'll add some to the WWE Network if you're lucky though.....or maybe not.

UPDATE: The latest additions to the list in the first post are Bolivia and Colombia.

Also I've removed Sweden from the list. The footage that I was told is Swedish is actually Finnish so Sweden no longer fits the criteria of the topic.

Japan has quite a bit and in good quality going back to at least the late 1950s. A lot of it is film or prehistoric video up to 1969 but then the quality gets really good. They recently aired a Giant Baba vs Bobo Brazil match from 1969 that must have been on Quadruplex. Looks DVD quality, like it was professionally recorded in 1989.

Yeah from what I've been told quite a few "new" matches have aired in Japan over the last couple of years that weren't available before. I'm going to be going through a lot of that kinda stuff very soon.

UPDATE: Several updates actually.

Firstly, I've removed filmreel clips from next to Austria in the list of countries in the first post. I'd put in error that there is that type of Austrian footage in existence, technically there is, but the footage is of shoot-wrestling which doesn't fit the criteria of this topic, hence why I've removed it.

Secondly, a board member thought it would be a good idea for me to explain what each type of surviving footage actually means since I'll be adding those next to each country in the list too as I go along, and since not everybody knows what, for example, the difference between a filmreel and a newsreel is, so, I've put a key above the list which hopefully will do just that.

And lastly, the latest addition to the list in the first post is Denmark.

UPDATE: Firstly, I've made several changes to the key in the first post. I've decided to remove silent filmreel clips, newsreel clips with subtitles, silent newsreel clips and silent newsreel clips with subtitles as footage types from it. From now on, to make things more simple, any filmreel clips I become aware of, regardless of the type, will just be known simply as filmreel clips. Similarly, any newsreel clips I become aware of, regardless of the type, will just be known simply as newsreel clips. As well as that I've actually added a new footage type to the key too: documentary clips.

And secondly, with all that in mind, I've removed newsreel clips with subtitles and silent newsreel clips with subtitles from next to Argentina in the list in the first post but left newsreel clips which covers what I took away there. I've removed silent filmreel clips and silent newsreel clips from next to Australia but left filmreel clips and newsreel clips which covers what I took away there. I've added documentary clips next to Austria. And I've removed silent filmreel clips from next to Canada but left filmreel clips which covers what I took away there.
