WWE has acquired the tape library of the Poffo family’s International Championship Wrestling, Pwinsider reports.

On Sunday’s episode of WWE’s Most Wanted Treasures, WWE archivist Ben Brown announced that the company now has 20 boxes of master tapes from the promotion, which ran from 1978 through 1984 and at one point was a major rival of Memphis Wrestling.


Brown further noted that the tapes had been left in a storage locker for decades until WWE acquired them.

It’s unclear when WWE acquired the footage. Lanny Poffo authenticated the footage on Sunday’s episode, which he declared to have not seen before.

Some 1983 clips were briefly shown and featured Bob Orton and Randy Savage.
