WWE Finalizes Purchase of Mid-South Wrestling Library

The Miami Herald is reporting that WWE has finalized a deal with Ene Watts, the ex-wife of "Cowboy" Bill Watts, to secure an estimated 1,200 hours of Mid-South Pro Wrestling video footage. Ene Watts won the rights to the footage in a divorce settlement years ago. Below is an excerpt from the Herald report, which includes the following quote from Jim Ross:

"Seeing a young Ted DiBiase, Ric Flair as the traveling NWA champion, guys like the Junkyard Dog and Butch Reed who was a great antagonist and a great protagonist — probably under-rated, by and large — and there were so many guys who came through there like the Steiner Brothers and Magnum T.A."
