Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls and Beings of all stripes! Welcome to another edition of the Golden Age of Grappling! On this week's show witness X-pac in a diaper! Triple H vs Triple D! the WWF Video Department going full FOX NEWS in their propaganda-style promotion of Shawn Michaels! And of course, witness Big Daddy Cool Diesel getting dragged down to HELL! (which of course is under a wrestling ring owned by Vince McMahon...)
We watched WWF In Your House 6: Rage in the Cage from 1996!Read More
Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the Cast,
Our hosts will talk wrestling and laughs from the past,
The soundbites all clipped by DP with care,
In hopes that Sid Vicious would soon be there.
Earbuds and airpods nestled snug in our ears,
While Santa is absent, the Wildman is here.
On Sable! On Sunny! On King and JR!
On Vince McMahon screaming “ITS THE BAD GUY RAY-ZAR!”
As another year passes and comes to a close…
Merry Christmas to you,
Thanks for enjoying our shows…
This week we reviewed WWF RAW from Monday, December 23rd of 1996!Read More
This week we once again look to “The Granddaddy of them all!” And like many Granddads Starrcade, has sadly passed on... (Although as of late there has been an unholy resurrection of the brand) ...But back to the subject at hand! THIS WEEK on the GOLDEN AGE OF GRAPPLING! We're 6 months into the NWO and already Hulk Hogan is representing the retirement home branch of the brand as he takes on Rowdy Roddy Piper! Konan and Hugh Morris get manhandled by Woman! WCW Shows off their collection of play by play announcers! and we get a legitimately fantastic set of matches.
Join us this week as we reviewed WCW's Yearly tradition, Starrcade from 1996!Read More
Welcome One! Welcome All! Step right up for another edition of the Golden Age of Grappling Podcast! Witness our love of tournaments! Our dislike for Multi-cage WCW Shenanigans! Our Inability to care about Giant vs Giant matches! The destruction that can be wrought by a broom-wielding Man Called Sting! And one more notch on the side of the rule that WCW shows start with their best match and tumble straight down from there!
We reviewed WCW Uncensored 1996!Read More
Welcome one! Welcome All! To another edition of The Golden Age of Grappling! This week see a show with two wasted debuts! Purposefully missed match finishes! Plot-holes like swiss cheese! And more apologizing announcers than the 3rd quarter of SuperBowl 38!
We reviewed WCW's Nitro #53 from September 16th 1996!Read More
Welcome One, Welcome All! To yet another edition of the Golden Age of Grappling! This week witness the Pre-PPV world of ECW Home Video! Hear almost all of the expletive laden promos uncensored with all the blood and guts you come to expect from a brand such as extreme championship wrestling! Hear about Sandman being hit with a kendo stick by a 6 year old! That weird moment in time where D-von Dudley was the only heel dudley! Listen to original entrance theme music untouched by the legal team at WWENetwork! And of course, it wouldn't be ECW without at least one Joel Gertner promo...
We Reviewed ECW's Natural Born Killaz from 1996!Read More
One ring... To rule them all...
One ring to find them...
One ring to Battle Bowl...
And in Confusion bind them.
Which does thy think greater? A Lord, Or a King? That is the question we must ask ourselves as we prepare for the Golden Age of Grappling!
Listen as one story-line will dominate an entire tournament, Only for the story's players to not make it to the end! (With a Mongo distraction Boss Battle) SO then watch guys you don't care about progress through this tag team tournament called the LETHAL LOTTERY!
Might want to get off the tracks dear listener, Because there's a train coming through... An ICE TRAIN! And don't you go thinking we're completely out of the 80's in WCW yet in 1996, because tonight you will witness THE BOOTYMAN! and his BOOTY BABE Kimberly! Who will be crowned the LORD OF THE RING?!?!?
We reviewed WCW Slamboree 1996!
