– Via Aaron Weiss: Weiss Wrestling Promotions (WWP) is placing some of our remaining vintage wrestling footage on-line for sale. These are joint rights, shared by another party, for all media in perpetuity. The new owner of the footage will have the opportunity to sell the rights (wholly) to another party or license the footage as they see fit. However, they will not have the right to splinter the ownership.
WWP secured rights to the content from the promoters. In 2012, a law office reviewed and vetted all the contracts pertaining to the footage and confirmed the rights of WWP. In some instances, royalties may be due directly to the promoter resulting from future use.
WWP will be selling the rights to 6 wrestling bouts in total. For sale, starting today are these matches:

Killer Kowalski vs. Luis Martinez, 7 minutes and 13 seconds includes post-fight interview w. Martinez and Bravo. Studio TV taping for Superstars of Wrestling in 1975.

AWA World Champion Verne Gagne d. Mad Dog Vachon, 15 minutes. Taped at Montreal Forum as part of Grand Prix Wrestling. Some issues with video dropouts and glitches during the match. 34 seconds are minor glitches and 44 seconds of major glitches. Doesn’t affect ending.

These Bouts are for sale on Ebay:

More matches will be released for sale, soon.

In 2012, we sold off the rights to most of our wrestling content. Prior to doing so, we produced several series including Pro Wrestling Superstars- Past, Present, and Future. PWS PPF was broadcast on all four Canadian PPV networks in Canada, and a special was aired on iN demand PPV. DVD’s of PWS PPF were sold in retail outlets across North America. The Fight Network in Canada and The Wrestling Channel in the UK broadcasted the series.
