    I wanna see more hidden gems from Mid South Wrestling that didn’t make the bluesy or DVD set.

  2. Motorhead says:

    Testing, testing, 1-2, 1-2… Syphilis, syphilis

  3. LP1 says:

    The Last Battle Of Atlanta. I’ve heard about this match for decades, but the presumption has always been that no footage of it exists. Great job by WWE to find this. Looking forward to this.

    • Brock Allen says:

      Yeah, I’ve heard/read there was no surviving footage of this match. I did read recently that Ole Anderson had a copy of the match. I’m not sure how WWE got the tape, but if it’s the entire match unedited it’s a true find. Collectors have been searching for footage of the match for years, as you probably know.

      • LP1 says:

        I think WWE purchased the Georgia library from Ole a while back. It’s possible this match was buried in there somewhere and they just came across it. Regardless of how or where they got it from, I’m just glad they did. Now if by some chance they can find footage of Bruno beating Buddy Rogers for the WWWF Title or Tito Santana beating Muraco for the IC Title then that would truly be a miracle.

        • David says:

          I read that Paul Ellering might have had a copy and seeing he is in NXT managing Authors of Pain and his daughter also in NXT, wouldn’t surprise me if WWE bought it off him.

  4. Domenic says:

    I hope the Hidden Gems collection gets released into a Blu-ray someday with even more content.
    I wish I could post my fantasy concept about it and have people critique it.
