'Last Battle of Atlanta' & more classic content coming Tuesday to WWE Network

Tommy Rich vs. Buzz Sawyer

Weary of more original content featuring today's WWE stars when the company is sitting on tens of thousands of hours of classic wrestling somewhere in Titan Towers?

If so, Tuesday is going to be a great day for you according to the good and talented folks at WWE Network News as the company is set to release a slew of matches and clips as part of the WWE Hidden Gems collection.

The website first broke news of the "Gems" collection earlier in the week, and released the list over the weekend. 

Here's a look:
