I don't believe any of the first 6 matches from 7/5 have been seen before.     And matches 1-4 plus the MX cage match have not been seen on 7/26

Robert Gibson Vs. Black Bart has serious potential.

Watching Dusty win the title made me wonder, is the match where Ric won it back available anywhere?

yes it's available. highlights of the last few minutes as I recall, not the whole thing. Their match the night before that set up the switch is also out there in jip form.

Both Bash shows are very good. I would say Flair-Morton is the top match off either show, with the rest of the matches ranging from watchable to very good. Both crowds are hot and in to everything that is being done, even in the openers people are jumping out of their seats and cheering. Also, seeing Baron Von Raschke with his jeans sagging below his ass like a skater is pretty damn funny. The only negative I can think of is the number of gimmick matches, with half of each card having some type of stipulation.

Not technically in the Hidden Gems section but WWE just dropped November to Remember 94 which was never released, watching the show closing mess with Sabu breaking his neck a minute into the match with Benoit.

Everyone should watch the last 20 minutes of NTR94, the entire locker room tries to improvise after Sabu breaks his neck, its amazing the promotion survived this. And the Body Count pyro thing and the fire incident.

A fancam of the show has been on Youtube for a minute - so I'm not sure anything. Of course the Network release has better production and you're not staring at someone's head for the majority.

This looks very much just like the two disc 'ECW Best of 1992' set that's been in circulation for years.

I mean almost all of the fan cams are on Highspots Network.  Unless he is working with them I don't know how iron clad they are.  I guess we will see if the video quality is RF video level and believe that will be easy to determine on whether these came straight from the source or other means.

So since Tod Gordon bought out Joel Goodhart, and Paul bought out Tod, I wonder if anything was filmed of the pre-ECW Tri State Wrestling anywhere in the pile.

I've always assumed there's a deal there - a lot of the RF shoots are also on the Highspots Network.

I would love to see some of those infamous Cactus Jack vs. Eddie Gilbert matches in decent quality. I don't know if their match from the 09/15/90 show ("Autumn Armageddon") ever made tape but if it did, I haven't seen it. I know their Falls Count Anywhere match from 03/02/91 ("Winter Challenge II") is available online, but the VQ is pretty bad.  Their Barbed Wire match from 05/18/91 ("Spring Spectacular II") is also available online, but the VQ is really bad.Then there is the infamous three fall match from 03/08/91 ("Summer Sizzler II") where the first match was Falls Count Anywhere, the second was a Stretcher Match and the third was a Cage match.  I have seen really bad VQ versions of all three matches. The versions of those matches that are posted online all have John Arezzi doing commentary. I'd love it if somebody had the raw footage or at least something of better quality.

Here you go, and in pretty decent quality compared to some of the TWA stuff that is out there.

Paging @khawk20

I know we have at least one Tonga vs Martel match but I'm not sure if it's this one. Any idea what might be new here?

Oh hey, it's the show from Highlander too.
