On February 27th, 1994 the World Wrestling Network held a television pilot taping in the Manhattan Center in New York. Owned by Jim Crockette and booked by Paul Heyman, the card was a proto-version of what ECW would become less than a year later. Several of the ECW wrestlers and concepts were used for the WWN taping, which included Sabu, The Public Enemy, Tommy Dreamer, and 911.

Even more interesting was that Heyman and Crockett decided to record the pilot in high definition. This would be over a decade before professional wrestler would be made available in HD by WWE (WCW was always broadcast in SD). This very likely was the earliest wrestling taping done in high definition, and for that it would be quite interesting to see.

Has any footage surfaced of this event?

Sabu vs. Terry Funk:


As well as Road Warrior Hawk vs. The Convict (Nailz). This match was supposed to have taken place at the first show in Texas but the venue looks the same as the Funk vs. Sabu match.


If any other footage exists, it's likely the same quality as the above. Anytime I've seen it mentioned and people say they have seen it, it was always handheld footage shot from the balcony.
