Following last week’s surprising update of NWA World Championship Wrestling (more of which has been added since), last night for the first time ever WWE Network began adding episodes of MID-SOUTH WRESTLING AND SMOKY MOUNTAIN WRESTLING!!
As picked up by our WWE Network Updates page, as of writing three episodes of Mid-South from 1984 are available, along with five episodes of Smoky Mountain from 1994.
The new content can be found in the “Vault” section of the WWE Network.

This is great, I’d LOVE to have a dvd set of this material….they’d really sell the s**t outta this.
These old school additions have been great. They need to continue with NWA Worldwide Wrestling and UWF wrestling.
The Thrillseekers rule!
This is good, but I hope they add more Prime Time Wrestling episodes, and they should also add All Ameri8can Wrestling & Wrestling Spotlight.
Agreed. I’m still waiting on 1980s Superstars Of Wrestling and Wrestling Challenge also.
It’s nice with this old wrestling being added. But I think WWE should have released more DVDs featuring Mid-South content before they add this to the network. Then they could also market it as “Home video exclusive”.
Perhaps the 1st set didn’t perform well. Those sets aren’t free to make. Prepping footage for the network is low cost and tests the water FOR those future DVD/BD options.
I mean it’s not like they are short on footage, and they only put a handful of episodes up.
Good to see these old school promotions finally seeing the light of day. This is what the WWE Network is all about in my opinion, along with the PPV’s.
Why can’t I comment on this site anymore using my original email address?
Can you elaborate? Did your login stop working or is it a different issue?
Not sure why but probably the log in. Under my original email address (which I’m sure you see on your end) I would comment, it says “Thanks for your Comment” then it just disappears. I have to spell my email wrong just to leave the comment now…if that makes any sense?
That happened to me a while back, it just kinda fixed itself though
How sad is it that this is some of the most exciting news in wrestling in awhile? I don’t agree with a lot of what WWE is doing, but I do very much so appreciate the “added value” items, like this, which won’t appeal to that many people, but which are VERY important TO those people. I’m not currently subscribing, but this has made me SERIOUSLY consider re-upping.
Let’s hope this current trend continues and WWE gives us historians more from these libraries and hopefully adds more WCCW and finally some AWA.
Feel the similar way bout the Network.. the only thing that would make me a regular subscriber would be, when complete back-catalogue in chronological order is avaliable for weekly/monthly shows of WWF/WWE, WCW, AWA, WCCW, Smoky, MSW, ECW and what else WWE owns.
I understand, that not everything can or should be uploaded right away.. but, I really hate, that they do not upload in a more chronological way. Untill that happens, I rather wait, instead of paying for somehting, that don’t have my interests: todays product and the “Reality”-tv bs.
