Discuss all the random stuff the Network adds from new collections and classic content to other shows and documentaries that probably don't really need their own thread as well.

Thursday is Hidden Gems day and they uploaded a few rarely seen matches from members of this years' HOF class Including:

  • A Honky Tonk Man match from Stampede wrestling in 1983
  • A Harlem Heat match from GWF in 1992 when they were The Ebony Express
  • X-Pac as The Lightning Kid wrestling Louie Spicolli from 1993
  • Road Dogg as Brian Armstrong vs Barry Hardy from a 1994 WWF Challenge
  • Triple H as Jean-Paul Levesque vs Road Dogg as Brian Armstrong from 1994 WCW
  • Shawn Michaels vs Stone Cold Steve Austin in Texas from 1996
  • Billy Gunn vs Mark Jindrak from OVW 2003
I'll probably get around to watching these later today, they normally don't upload this many but I'm assuming these are pretty short.

lol that HHH/Road Dogg match only got a few minutes but the announcers called the Pedigree "some sort of piledriver" :lmao the Austin/HBK match was pretty nice, definitely a house show effort with a lot of rest holds, but it got 20+ minutes and wasn't bad by any means.

The Charlotte chronicle that was uploaded after Takeover last night was pretty cool. It goes from Royal Rumble to right before WrestleMania, lot of ugly crying tho

New Table For 3 uploaded with Ricochet, Johnny Gargano, and Adam Cole, I'm watching it now and it's pretty cool so far.

Pretty cool Sting WWE Untold episode was uploaded Saturday as well about his match against HHH

Today's Hidden Gem is Mid-South Wrestlefest '85, doesn't look like there's any commentary but it features Dusty Rhodes vs Ric Flair and Jake Roberts vs Ted DiBiase among other matches

DDP doc from a couple years ago was added yesterday. Just finished watching it, it's really cool especially since I'm a huge DDP fan. Cover his career pretty well, then the last 10 or so minutes are about how his yoga was so successful and he turned Jake Roberts and Scott Hall's lives around

New Ride Along episode after Raw last night, "WrestleMania Way" features a car of Billy Gunn, Road Dogg, & X-Pac and a car of Beth Phoenix and Natalya. DX were hilarious, but Divas of Doom were pretty boring but they didn't get near as much airtime so that's good.
