The whereabouts of the Continental Wrestling footage:

Mauro Ranallo To Provide Commentary For Rich Swann vs. Kenny Omega At IMPACT Rebellion


“Well actually there is no footage. Footage of it still remains but we didn't save programs, we didn't save tapes and there was no reason back in the 70s or 80s to save your program because you expected to be there forever so a lot of it has gotten away. Oddly enough, I have a gentleman that works with me out of West Virginia that has found a bevy and a huge stack of maybe as many as three years of Continental Wrestling from a guy in England. I don't know how they got to England but there is about to be some on the horizon that are going to be sold and they are piecing it together now and I am a part of that to help them put it together properly. I think a lot of people that never saw our program before will probably be pretty amazed at the talent that was there and the types of things we were doing back in those days."


The innovation of the Fullers television and the work that went into producing their TV:


"I always just loved the entire business. I loved every bit of it. I loved wrestling and going in the ring and I loved having a good match. I loved the booking and figuring out what was going to happen and just blowing people's minds and trying to stay two steps ahead of the average fan."


"I loved the television in my first company, South Eastern Championship Wrestling out of Knoxville. I probably had the most inventive and creative wrestling program in America. I was the first one to ever do instant replay, the first one to do split screen and I did all kinds of deals with that program so I liked every part of it and the wrestling business was so interesting to me. I guess that is from growing up in it and riding up and down the roads. It was a great life, a phenomenal life of riding up and down the roads just talking business and being around people that you liked and you admire while having fun and laughing. Nothing is better than that. Nothing is better than being a wrestler in a territory that is on fire and doing great business with everybody in that dressing room getting along."
