Any idea if there are any issues that might prevent AWA from airing on the WWE Network? I know the rights issues are a bit crazy due to ESPN having a clause that give them exclusive TV rights to the AWA's show but does that cover streaming websites like the WWE Network?
No, their exclusive rights only cover specific airings of the ESPN TV show. WWE owns the master tapes of everything else that AWA produced and they can do whatever they want with them. AWA used to produce all sorts of syndicated repackagings and secondary market shows and such and as far as I know there's literally nothing preventing any of the AWA footage from airing on the Network. We've already seen hours of ESPN footage on DVD releases from WWE as well, so clearly even that isn't an issue.
