Some interesting news today concerning the possibility of similar WWE Tagged Classics DVD’s (WWF re-releases) to that of the UK, being released to another country.
That country is Australia. Speaking with the official distributor of WWE DVDs in the region, they disclosed that they are hoping to release some classic PPV events next year, such as the 2001 catalog. Nothing solid is confirmed as yet but they did reference Silver Vision’s Tagged Classics series in the UK, saying if it happens they will be the same as those.
Therefore it looks like this licensee in Australia, as was the case in the UK, is legally allowed to re-release the archive footage because they were a innocent third party amid the court battle for the WWF name, which saw the Home Video catalog being removed from sale in 2002.
It all sounds promising for Aussie fans!
