I am sending link from wikipedia with the episodes -https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NWA/WCW_closed-circuit_events_and_pay-per-view_events

Thanks in advance!

I don't know anything about wrestling and was able to fix the other wrestling show because it was listed on tvmaze already. Is this a specialised series or just a series of one off events? Does it fulfill the criteria to be listed on tvmaze (https://www.tvmaze.com/faq/13/shows). We import all our show/episode data from tvmaze, so the show needs to be on their site before it can be added here.

Hello!
This is equivalent of "WWE PPV on WWE Network" which already exist, but from other promotion company - WCW. I am sending a link from IMDB for more information - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12221524/. I will help you for more information if you need. Smile Wink

There is no exact tv channel the shows have been broadcasting. That's why I think it must be syndicated.

Reading through the wikipedia entry it says from 1983-87 the events aired on closed-circuit television, i have never heard of this before, do they mean the events used closed-circuit cameras rather than traditional cameras to record and broadcast the events and they were broadcast on tv that way or something totally different.

Why i am asking this question is i need to establish when these events started being broadcast on traditional tv/pay channels, if it wasn't until 1988 then i can only list events from that point.

Closed-circuit television is also a method for airing. It is not widespread now because it's used for small quantity viewers.

I have spent approximately an hour over a couple of nights trying to find evidence of this being a show/series that fulfills the tvmaze criteria to be added and i can't find anything conclusive to add the show to tvmaze.

If you look at the WWE PPV events you can go to https://watch.wwe.com/wwe-ppv and every event is clearly listed as part of a series of events which is reflected in the tvmaze listing https://www.tvmaze.com/shows/2855/wwe-ppv-on-wwe-network/episodes i cannot find anything similar for NWA/WCW PPV. I need to have sort of evidence like this before i can add the show to tvmaze, i have received a couple of pm's in the last month from tvmaze moderators about breaking their rules, so i need to have conclusive evidence as i don't want to receive anymore.

The promotion WCW does not exist anymore. Maybe this is the reason. Is not the information in the link enough - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12221524/ ?

Tvmaze have very specific criteria that a show has to fit to be allowed onto their site, so the imdb info isn't enough to detemine whether it fulfills there criteria, but what it did do was give me the link that should provide enough evidence to allow the show to be listed and stop it being removed. https://watch.wwe.com/wcw-ppv should be enough to list the show. I have added the show to the site and all episodes listed on wikipedia.

WCW PPV
