I was thinking about this earlier about what the great matches or pivotal matches are not up on the Network yet despite WWE owning the rights. I thought it might be worth compiling a list and ticking them off as they are finally put up.
Two that immediately spring to mind through my recent viewing (or attempted viewing) are Bob Backlund winning the title from Superstar Billy Graham in 78, and the Steiner Brothers cage match with Money Inc for the tag titles in 93.
Are there any missing matches that you have noticed that you would like to see added?

"Superfly" Sivi Afi's WWF debut at MSG in January 86, nah just kidding. I just wish they would upload it as it's hilarious how Finkel starts the introduction and the fans go apeshit thinking Jimmy Snuka is coming out and then he says "Sivi Afi" and the place gets deflated and it goes over like a fart in church.
Seriously, I wish they would upload more WCW Saturday Night/Worldwide episodes from the early 90's, a lot of great matches were on there.
Still missing at least one match from the Rhodes/Graham MSG Feud I think.
Came here to post these, which is a real shame as these two matches are literally the two I always suggest for fans of mid-80s and later to check out to develop a taste for pre-80s wrestling. The pacing and pageantry is similar enough to today's to build that bridge, the super hot crowds indicate what to watch for and what was so appealing in these matches, and the familiarity of the performers and who they've influenced allow for an instant investment.
