– We noted back in June that after several attempts, WWE had finally purchased the Watts video library that consists of Mid-South Wrestling, Mid-South’s Power Pro Wrestling TV and the original Universal Wrestling Federation. The library is owned by Bill Watts’ ex-wife Ene as part of a divorce settlement and is the largest known wrestling video collection not owned by WWE. It was reported back in June that the two sides finally were able to come to terms as WWE wanted the footage for the Network.
It was reported that WWE already had plans to do a DVD documentary on Mid-South and were having talks about doing DVD’s on Ted DiBiase, Junkyard Dog and Hacksaw Jim Duggan.
PWInsider now reports that WWE still has not taken possession of the library. WWE is indeed planning to take over the library but word is that there is an issue with finalizing the deal. As of this writing, the DVD’s are still being sold via Universal Wrestling Archives, Inc. on UniversalWrestling.com.
