As the sports memorabilia market continues to boom, WWE has taken notice and is capitalizing on the frenzy, partnering with A&E on an all-new series, WWE's Most Wanted Treasures. Hosted by WWE's Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon and her husband, fellow WWE executive Paul "Triple H" Levesque, the new show will take viewers on a journey to find the most iconic items in professional wrestling history and explain the significance behind them. In each installment, McMahon and Levesque will lead a team of memorabilia collectors and WWE stars past and present as they search for items, such as the original Kane mask, Ric Flair's butterfly robe, and even Andre the Giant's passport.

The first episode features WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, who's best known for his Mankind character. During WWE's heralded "Attitude Era" in the 1990s, Mankind debuted as a deranged rival of the Undertaker before becoming an overwhelming fan favorite and, years later, WWE champion. Although fans will remember Foley's ring attire being a tattered, white dress shirt, when he first joined WWE in 1996, Mankind initially wore a brown tank top with his logo. Seemingly tucked away in a wrestling memorabilia collection somewhere in the U.S., it's now up to McMahon, Levesque, Foley and their team to track down — and possibly reclaim — the original shirt. — Anthony Sulla-Heffinger

This airs immediately following the Steve Austin documentary, so A&E will have 3 hour WWE blocks for the next couple of months.

Pretty cool concept, which is a takeoff of some popular shows recently like "Toy Hunters" and sort of hits on the memorabilia phase. Maybe they can track down my original Hasbros I sold on Ebay back in 2000 that are now worth a gazillion dollars.

I am definitely curious how they will whitewash history with these A&E documentaries. But it's not like they are breaking new ground with the names they have chosen.
The hunt for memorabilia has a lot more potential, and I know some of the things they have done, so am looking forward to these. 
It's gotten to the point where documentaries about pro wrestling are far more interesting than today's product.
