PWInsider (pwinsider.com) is reporting that WWE is close to finalizing a deal to secure the rights to the World Class Championship Wrestling library.

What a great acquisition this could be. This would be the final piece of the puzzle to putting together a great Steve Austin DVD collection.

Not to mention footage of the Dingo Warrior.

I watched the trailer for the Von Erich's documentary, and man, did that bring back memories. UHF channel 56 used to run WCCW back in the 80's in SoCal - same channel as good ole' Wally George.

Anyway, I think WWE aquiring WCCW footage is a good thing. There DVD production could put together a lot of amazing stuff.

Hmm, never knew Kevin released a DVD...Hopefully WWE will release one somewhere down the road as well.

I recall this being in the news a couple years ago when Vince had offered an extremely low amount of money. Glad they're finally working it out.

I concur wholeheartedly, with the addendum that Von Erich's vs. Chris Adams/Gino Hernandez be included as well.

If there's not an Iceman King Parsons DVD set, there will be riots in the streets.

I used to watch WCCW every weekend in San Diego. They had alot of name talent and good matches. WWE needs to put the old TV shows on 24/7. In fact, with the scene the way it is nowdays, they could probably put them on regular TV and draw decent ratings,as long as it wasn't buried at 11:00 pm on saturday:)

Just put the Christmas day beating of Fritz Von Erich in the cage on some DVD and I'm there. Seeing the boys handcuffed to the cage and Fritz getting the crap kicked out of him was the first time I marked for the heels.

You sure you're not confusing WCCW and UWF? Saturday mornings ruled here when I could catch WWF, UWF and WCW in the morning, then switch over to TBS for WCW Saturday Night later on. I don't ever remember catching WCCW on any of the local channels (51 or 69)...only time I'd ever catch it and the AWA was during the week on ESPN...

I'd like to see a weekly show of old matches, on cable, it would be much better than some of the other programs they've aired the last few years. If it was in a bad time slot, that's what the VCR is for.

This woudl rule ten thousand ways. The only problem would be seeing The skinny Von Erich kid beatin gall the superstars of the day. THATS just total BS.

Von Erichs Vs Freebirds would rule, but I really want to see where Jimmy Garvin had to be the Von Erichs servant for thirty days. Cleaning horse stables, etc. Classic stuff.

Now, if Vince could get the Mid South/UWF and the old Southwest Library, he could REALLY make some serious coin.

What major libraries are left that Vince doesn't own? And which DVDs would they enhance, if purchased? Answers on a postcard, please. :)

In this week's Observer Dave talked about WWE wanting to do a Dusty Rhodes DVD and said that WWE owns the Georgia and Carolinas video libraries but not Florida, where much of Dusty's heyday happened. So there's that.

Hey Vince, after you buy the rights and create that Von Erich/Freebird feud DVD set, a DVD extra of all the old WCCW music montages would be STELLAR. One of those things I can't ever shake out of my mind is the Gorgeous Jimmy Garvin and Precious montage to Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart." Every time some "American Idol" hack tries to belt out that song, the WCCW memories come flooding back (creating one of the weirdest TV tie-ins ever), which means that the repetitive memory imprint recurs about every 12 months.

When the WWF first got their paws on WCW and the rumors were flying, speculation included Shane running the WCW company pretty much independently with their own show and a new edge. I was really looking forward to something like that (re:
