Is there any chance that WWE would make a run at their video library for the network? They've got a bunch of guys that spent significant time there, if nothing else they could use the footage to flesh out retrospectives or something.
I know that the 80s Mid South stuff is your jam, but I'd go nuts watching all the old Bryan, Punk, Joe, etc stuff.
If and when they go out of business, WWE will buy up the tape library at their standard prices, yes. That's how they operate.
