TNA tape library

few quick questions

1. would wwe be honestly interested in the TNA tape library?

2. How much would it honestly cost them (over/under 200k)?

3. Would anyone outside wwe be interested (which i assume no which would only drive the price down right)?

4. what would wwe do it?  throw it up on the network? make a flat line and fall of tna dvd?  use it for kurt angle and sting docs?

5. anything else im missing that you'd like to add?

1.  Yes, of course.  Vince made more money off WCW in DVD sales than he paid for the entire company by a lot.  Pretty sure getting the TNA library and doing a "Life and Death of…" set burying them would justify whatever paltry sum they would need to pay out.  
2.  There's a set rate that WWE offers for footage and I doubt TNA would need to exceed that.  
3.  WWE would be the only buyer.  
4.  As you noted, they'd make a couple of DVD sets mocking the death of the promotion and use the rest to pad out Sting Volume 2 or wacky YouTube shows about how stupid TNA was.
5.  Just to once again plug my Sporting News column from last year, which still draws numbers to this day.  Maybe DA should give me the timeslot instead:

WWE Looking to Sell It’s Tape Library?

In this article on, it says that the Warner Bros. is in talks to buy the WWE tape library. Although both the WWE and Warner Bros. have declined to comment, the story claims that the WWE is transitioning away from using their video library due to disappointing Network subscription sales

Fwd: ROH video library

> With ROH possibly folding in the next couple of years, could u see Trips going after their library??

WWE will own everything available when all is said and done, so of course. The money from one DVD release that does reasonably well pays for the minimal cost of the entire library.

Speaking of DVDs, I was checking out the MSG listing, and what a huge disappointment that one is. Shawn v Razor AGAIN? Only 4 pre-Hogan matches? What nostalgic fans are buying this thing for The Hardy Boyz v The Dudley Boyz in 2000?
