That's who I'm interested in seeing. 

Is the Comiskey Park footage with Heenan and the Sheik new?

Edit: Never mind, it's on YouTube. Surprised I haven't watched it before. Or maybe I have lol 

Looks like we might get an extra 3 minutes of it though?

And since it should be from the master film we hopefully wont get Bob Luce's commentary track that is on the YouTube version. 

ZOINKS! BLOODBATH!

 

"Where are we wrestling fans? You got it, Comiskey Park. And what's the year? Yeah, you're right again! 1974! And who's that wrestling? That's Pretty Boy Heenan and the Sheik! The Sheik of Araby! Da-da-da da-da-da! You gave your love to me! I remember that song and so did the Sheik, he loved that song!"

Ok, the Monroe match is up. Solid VQ. A ~37 year old Solie is commentating. From the 3/26/66 tv show, which also had a Lothario match on it. Hopefully they have that too.  Seeing a 32 year old Lothario would be awesome.

I'm assuming the Sputnik match is one of those no-sound 16mm deals from Florida? I never quite understood why they would film things like that. Other territories barely valued taping on regular film and the Grahams are out there all avant garde and shit.

No it has sound on it and commentary.

@khawk20

Flagging you on the Outlaws match. Write up says it's probably not new, but I don't think I've seen it.

I did have this on one of my Bob Luce film comps. There is so much good stuff in the Luce films, and if they are editing Luce's commentary out of it, more people will stick around to enjoy it. Very polarizing commentator, lol. I didn't mind him so much but I look forward seeing the footage without it. :)

The Battle of Breakfast Cereal – 05/01/1989 (Hyatt Hotel – Minneapolis, MN)       This is effectively a 1-hour commercial sponsored by Kellogg’s. Featuring 4 matches, each wrestler represents a different food product (separated into Kellogg’s and General Mills teams)

This is the best thing I've seen in my 36 years of watching wrestling. It's not a commercial, it's a corporate motivational event for Kelloggs management that was filmed for some reason.  

It's fucking bonkers.

If Verne did this for Kellogg’s, can you imagine what he would do for Saudi money?

Just imagine how much Saudi money Verne could have gotten if he was able to lure the Iron Sheik into working as a heel on cards in Saudi Arabia as revenge for Sheik not breaking Hogan's leg in 1984.
