Wrestling on DVD?

The WWE seems to be sitting on alot of potential DVD's with there archives from the 60's and 70's.I was just wondering is there a market for the older wrestling.Would someone be interested in The Best of Superstar Billy Graham?Others like Andre the Giant,Bruno Sammartino,Ivan Koloff would be of interest as well.How about a 4 hour DVD of nothing but WWE managers from the past(Grand Wizard,Blassie,Albano,etc.).The only question to be answered is this stuff marketable.

I'd like to see a decades collection, a multiple disk set with one disk for each decade.

a lot of the older stuff will never make dvd because the promoters use to recycle tapes and tape over the old stuff a few weeks later to cut costs thinking there would never be any need for it later on.

Bill Watts ex-wife owns the master tapes of the UWF(later bought out by WCW).Wrestling Gold has some older matches also but I don't know what is available out there.I recorded the audio portion of many wrestling shows from the 70's(pre-vcr days).I don't know If the new breed of wrestling fan is interested in wrestling's glorious past.

There is always a market for classic wrestling.

The time to market it has passed, they should have done it 3 years ago, when wrestling was so big.
