WWE Network News has confirmed that this week's Hidden Gem is the 2-hour, Sunday version of the 1993 Survivor Series Showdown. There's also a 1-hour version which aired the next night and was billed as a Raw episode (though not part of Raw's episode count), but that's not being added.
Oh wow. Has this ever been re-broadcast or made available any other time - like 24/7?
I don't believe so. The Bret/Yokozuna match (taken from the Monday replay where JR/Monsoon call it instead of McMahon/Heenan) is on Bret's 2013 set, but I think that's it.

With the 2018 edition of Starrcade airing as a network special this Sunday, it's fitting that this week's hidden gems were part of the build towards the first Starrcade in 1983, the two matches are: Ricky Steamboat/Jay Youngblood vs The Brisco brothers and Harley Race Vs Ric Flair for the NWA world title (Both from 7-9-1983)
Apparently, WWE plans to add Hidden Gems every day through Dec. 25. The first one is WCCW Christmas Star Wars 1981.
Based on the video, we'll also be getting......
- an AWA match between the Midnight Rockers and the Original Midnight Express (Randy Rose and Dennis Condrey).
- something from the NWA involving Tully Blanchard and Magnum TA.
- Sandman vs. Steve Corino vs. Justin Credible from December 2000 (was meant to be a TV taping, but ECW ended production of the TV show before it could air; full event was released by RF Video after Tommy Dreamer found his own copy of it).

As part of the 12 Days of Hidden Gems The AWA St Paul AWA Christmas show from 1986 is up, Day 10 is going to be the three way dance between The Sandman, Justin Credible and Steve Corino from December 2000 in what turned out to be the last ECW event ever held at the ECW arena
