Duplicates impossible to merge

There's a bunch of WCW Saturday Night wrestling episodes approved as feature films. Not sure why?
https://www.imdb.com/find?q=wcw%20saturday&s=tt&ttype=ft&ref_=fn_ft

Proof they're already in the database:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0222648/episodes?year=1995

But when I tried to merge one I get this interesting error:

Please fix this.
Cheers!

M J: I'm giving you a "me too" vote on this, because I just tested this correction myself and got the same error message:
The title format is invalid.
There seem to be multiple years of release. IMDb titles may only have one year, please use attributes to indicate work over a number of years.
As you indicated, the way to correct these entries should be (for example) to correct the title of
WCW Saturday Night - August 19, 1995 (1995) to make it "WCW Saturday Night" (1985) {(1995-08-19)} instead, but that isn't working.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Duplicates impossible to merge.

So I got a response via email saying:
"Thank you for your message.

We have looked into this and found that it is possible to change the title type and name, you may find it easier to convert the titles into an episode under the series and then merge episodes.

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,
Jaime
IMDb Customer Service"

I saw they merged the first one in the list but when I tried to merge the second one, I got the same error.
This problem needs to be fixed.
I know it's possible to first change them into episodes and then merge them but that takes twice as much time. Plus this issue needs to be solved for future edits.
