Ladies and Gentlemen, It is with great honor that I respectfully welcome you the 100th edition of The Golden Age of Grappling! This week we tackle the great white whale that has been staring us down since the show's inception. A wrestling event so infamous for 2 absolutely awful gimmick matches that it would spawn possibly 100's of wrestling podcasts and publications to review it. BUT Unlike most of those shows... DP, Tony G, and our Guest Reviewer Shaun McG, The white-meat babyfaces that you know as your hosts of this little shindig... well, we were there live and in living color! So batten down the hatches and set our bearings for a place not down in any map; true places never are... For we sail for the nation of Russo in the land of Action Nonstop.

Welcome One, Welcome All! To yet another episode of the Golden Age of Grappling! This week witness the very first and probably last WWE Capitol Punishment! The year was 2011 and the world was still recovering from a Miz Mania main event win when the WWE turned to the one man who could save the company and bring the attention of the world to their product... Of course the initial and punctuation laden superstar is well known for his work on the mic. I'm of course talking about R-Truth. And then, witness that time the entire company suffered from that gas leak and thought the real President Obama had come to a WWE PPV. Yeah, Shit gets weird.
