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.

New Hidden Gems for this week are all Terry Funk related for whatever reason.

"Father Knows Best" - Dory Funk Sr. teaching Dory Jr. and Terry some stuff from 1971
"Texas Royalty" - Terry Funk vs Jerry Lawler from 1990
"Terry Funk ECW Awards Banquet" - Pre-Barely Legal awards banquet honoring Terry Funk and hyping the show

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
