The Hidden Gem this week is the failed 1999 revival of Stampede Wrestling pilot episode with none other than Mauro Ranallo on commentary, shit has been hilarious so far and I'm only halfway through

Just watched the new WWE Untold episode about the Angle/Shane KOTR '01 match. Pretty cool stuff, they had Shane and Kurt talk about it obviously but also Bruce Prichard (who was a producer at the time backstage with Vince), Mike Chioda (who reffed it), and Al Snow (who helped them plan it)

They've added a lot of episodes of WWE Game Night from their YouTube channel to the Network, probably all of them but IDK bc I never watched it on YouTube.

Also added were Mid-Atlantic TV from July 13, 1985-May 17, 1986

The Hidden Gem this week is NWA Crockett Cup from 1986...not the full show bc I looked up the card to check and it starts with the 6th match but it's still 4 hours long. Hopefully it has the rest of the tournament in full bc the Sheepherders/Fantastics match later is fucking awesome...I think Meltzer even rated it 5 stars which is hilarious bc of how much he grew to hate the Bushwhackers :TI: I've only seen it once and I don't rate matches so idk about 5 stars but it was great, so I look forward to watching it again once I get to it on this show.

Teams include the Midnight Express, the Road Warriors, The Russians, The Fantastics, The Sheepherders, a Japanese team of Giant Baba and Tiger Mask II (AKA Mitsuharu Misawa :mark: ) and some that I think were just teamed together for the tournament like Magnum TA & Ronnie Garvin and Steve Williams & Terry Taylor.

The Hidden Gems this week are kinda odd, both are from 1993 dark matches with Sabu and Taz (as The Tazmaniac) vs Scotty Too Hotty. The ECW guys being showcased makes sense with Extreme Rules coming up but what does Scotty have to do with anything lmao

We got even more with the Hidden Gems this week as they're the Best of ECW 1992 Volumes 1 and 2 and also the ECW TV Pilot from November of '92.

This Hidden Gem this week is "Meadowlands Mayhem" which is a card from 1985 from the Pro Wrestling USA promotion (A failed joint venture by the AWA, JCP, and NWA to compete against the WWF's national expansion). I'm not sure if all the card is included on the Network bc I haven't watched it yet but here's some of the top matches:

Sgt. Slaughter vs Kamala in a Ugandan Death Match
Road Warriors defend the AWA Tag Titles vs Curt & Larry Hennig
Rick Martel defends the AWA title against King Tonga
Larry Zybyszko defends the AWA Americas title against Bob Backlund
The Freebirds are in 6-man action

Lots of new things being added to the Network this week:

A Target: TakeOver episode before Wednesday's episode of NXT
Hidden Gems on Thursday, not sure what they'll be yet
A WWE Untold about Team Hell No airing Friday after This Week in WWE
A WWE Chronicle for Seth Rollins after TakeOver on Saturday
A WWE 24 for Kofi after SummerSlam this Sunday

Also the episode of Table for 3 with Cesaro, Rollins, and Nigel that was added after Raw last night was awesome, plus the Raw Reneunion "The Day Of" episode was fun too

Another "hidden" Hidden Gem was added that isn't showing up on the recently added section like the Harley Race ones for some reason, but you can find it using the search function. It's Sunday Night Slam from August 1994 featuring:

Crush vs Lex Luger
1-2-3- Kid & Sparky Plugg vs Million Dollar Corporation of Bam Bam Bigelow & IRS
Razor Ramon vs Todd Becker
Bull Nakano vs Heidi Lee Becker
Diesel vs Typhoon
The Undertaker (FAKE Brian Lee version) vs Sonny Rogers

Also Leslie Nielson has a search for the real Undertaker in segments throughout the night that are probably amazing
