After recent reports suggested the deal might not go through because of problems with the contract WWE kept passing to the Watts family, The Miami Herald reports that WWE and the Watts family has agreed on a deal for WWE to purchase around 1,200 hours of Mid-South Wrestling footage. We’ve reported that plans will be to use the footage on the WWE Network and in DVD releases for some of the Mid-South stars.

Jim Ross told The Miami Herald:

“If fans are able to somewhere down the road buy volumes where they can see X number of weeks of television or by the year where there’s X number of episodes on a multi-disc set, they’re going to see how it was like reading an action adventure book. One chapter led to the next chapter led to the next with a crescendo and then a payoff, and then the book continues.”
