WWE has finalized a deal to acquire the World Wrestling Council video library, according to PWInsider.
The WWC promotion is owned by WWE Hall of Famer Carlos Colon and Victor Jovia in Puerto Rico and dates back to 1973 when it was launched by Colon, Jovica and the late great Gorilla Monsoon. The library is reported to be one of the largest and oldest wrestling libraries still available.
The deal was reportedly officially finalized last month after several years of negotiations when WWE officials made the trip over to Puerto Rico.
The footage contains many classic matches and is believed to need a lot of work to digitalized and make it ready for use on the WWE Network, some of it was said to have been damaged during Hurricane Maria.
There is no word yet on how much WWE paid for the library.
