Does WWE have access to the tape library of Ohio Valley Wrestling, specifically for matches involving their previous developmental talent there? I think the only way to do a true DVD career retrospective on guys such as John Cena and Randy Orton (and Batista, for that matter, but is he still in WWE?) is to show some of the matches they competed in before they made it to the big time.

I remember seeing a lot of it on the Batista and previous Cena DVDs. They, along with Orton, all look....bigger and juicier, for lack of a better description.

Does anybody know who owns the old Southwest Championship Wrestling library? Is it Tully Blanchard's dad?
THATS a library I'd love to revisit.

Not to mention the Mid Southern (Memphis) and Mid South (Bill Watts) film libraries. Both had some of the most inspired booking, and promos ever done, IMO.

Recently I have been lost for hours on you tube watching some of that old Memphis stuff. Some is awesome, some is awesome craptacular.
