YouTube Channels directory (reference)


Recommended Posts

  • Paid Members

So we've got the thread for posting individual clips, but I thought it would be useful to put together a directory of good channels for reference. Up to people what they add here, but I'd recommend sticking to ones which:


* Are well established with a pretty big collection of videos.

* Have some sort of theme.

* Contain relatively rare footage (as rare as 'being on YouTube' can be.)


For starters:

None of the links work for me apart from the last two, is anyone else having the same problem?


Great post though Lister, especially the one with the old school WWF house shows - would love to see events from some of the bigger arenas they did.


You have to take off the semi colons at the end of each link.

Breaks nearly every rule I listed, but awesome nonetheless. It's 15 minute recaps of each Raw and Smackdown and 5 minute recaps of the various 1-hour WWE shows. But it's not just a set of clips, it's everything on the show. It's every key line from every segment and then virtually every spot from every match, with all the restholds, transitions, waffle etc cut out. A little bit jarring to watch but by far the most efficient way to keep up without worrying about missing something.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsWcWtUx6mLpNQrs7JLromQ- Anthony's Man Cave. Episodes of Joe Pedicino's Pro Wrestling This Week. For those who don't know it, it was a well syndicated round up show of pretty much everywhere in the states broadcast in the late 80s-early 90s as part of the Superstars of Wrestling (not the WWF one) 6 hour block of multiple promotions on a Saturday night.
