TAPE 1333

Quality: EX

Length: 2 hrs (DVD)

AWA RAW FOOTAGE - 2/84 - 5/84 (Excellent compilation put together by my old friend Khawk20. In the mid-80s, the local TV station in St. Paul would tape AWA arena matches and then show highlights on their news programs, sometimes even breaking in for live coverage. Here we have full, or nearly full, matches from those tapings. Except the first match, all are raw footage from a single pro-quality camera unless noted. Quality is pretty much EX.)
