The things to see. WWE has been around for a very long time now and that means they have a lot of history to remember. As the biggest and most powerful wrestling promotion in the world, they are going to be able to do things that other companies just cannot make happen. WWE can do this incredibly well and they keep track of a lot of the things they have. Now, they are letting you see some of them.
Back on April 18, A&E debuted a weekly series called WWE’s Most Wanted Treasures, featuring WWE searching the country to try and find various items, many of which are in the hands of private collectors. The show also includes a look inside the WWE warehouse, though most of the show does not take place there. As a result, WWE has offered another look.
As part of the promotion for the show, Entertainment Tonight has posted a video of Stephanie McMahon, who hosts WWE’s Most Hidden Treasures, giving a tour of the WWE warehouse. The warehouse holds over 10,000 pieces of memorabilia and props from WWE history, including some from the modern era and all the way back to the company’s early days.
This is fascinating. Check out a look inside the warehouse:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that I can always go for and it is great to see how much effort WWE has put in to keep something like this going. The idea of having that much history in one place is about as amazing as it gets for a wrestling history geek and it is kind of a shame that the video was so short. I get why they had to do it this way, but I could have gone with a lot more.
I know it might not have the biggest audience in the world, but you would think that there would be an audience for a show about the various archives on the WWE Network. Even if it is something as simple as a five minute look at various pieces, it would seem to be the kind of thing that you could throw out there in a hurry and have a little fun with the thing. WWE has the archive to back it up so why not let us see what is out there?
What is your favorite piece in the warehouse? Would you like to see a regular series about the archive? Let us know in the comments below.
