* WWE's developmental territory FCW (later renamed NXT Wrestling) has had a few matches when main stars visit for autograph sessions or unaired matches for the televised shows that haven't been officially released. The first notable match was when Wrestling/CMPunk visited in late 2011 and was harassed by Wrestling/DeanAmbrose (Wrestling/{{CZW}}'s Jon Moxley), leading to a match later that night. The second was at the August 2012 tapings when Punk ended up wrestling the Kings Of Wrestling (Wrestling/ChrisHero and Wrestling/ClaudioCastagnoli; or, as they are known in WWE, Kassius Ohno and Antonio Cesaro) in a tag match while partnered with, ironically enough, Wrestling/SethRollins (Former Wrestling/{{R|ingOfHonor}}OH Champion Tyler Black), who would later be one of Ambrose's allies in Wrestling/TheShield.

* Even in the major promotions with national television deals, it's a given many matches never get recorded, much less received widespread distribution, and some of them are considered to be among the greatest matches in a performer's career. As legendary as the televised Wrestling/RicFlair-Wrestling/RickySteamboat feud was, they both agree they're best work together has been lost to time. Wrestling/RandyOrton himself has tried to find recordings of an non televised match he had with Chris Jericho in Japan. Wrestling/MontelVontaviousPorter considers a house show encounter with [[Wrestling/TheWorldsGreatestTagTeam Shelton Benjamin]] to be as good as his Wrestlemania match with Wrestling/ChrisBenoit. Wrestling/TheBigShow once took seven [[Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin Stone Cold stunners]] in a live event, where he feels he finally understood what it meant to be TheGiant. One of the best reported women's matches in Wrestling/{{WWE}} history was at a live event between Wrestling/TrishStratus and Wrestling/JillianHall.

* There was a joke going around the Obsessed With Wrestling\Online World Of Wrestling sites back in the early 2000s that WWF should stop broadcasting WWF and put Ohio Valley Wrestling on television instead. Several wrestlers that ultimately amounted to little on the main roster had promising developmental runs prior, such as Seven Thorn. Also, someone who did little of note on WWE might have much more time to put on better matches or pick up some wins if they had been jobbing.[[note]]Unlike other WWE developmental programs, NXT would have moderately wide distribution in the 2010s but the same joke would still made about it.[[/note]]
