Welcome One! Welcome All! to the Late-to-the-Rumble-party edition of The Golden Age of Grappling! This week we delve into the early years of the Rumble! 1991, when the world according to WWF was all about WAR!!! (but not the fun, Monday night kind) We go full propaganda! With the Ultimate Warrior ripping up an Iraqi flag, Roddy Piper wearing ribbons, and Sgt Slaughter is an american hero... oh sorry, no he was a Saddam Hussein sympathizer! Oh Yeah, and on top of all of that the Royal Rumble is gonna happen and there might be a total of 10 "wrestling Moves" in the entire thing!
So join us as we review The Royal Rumble from 1991!

And what do you do when you have Roddy Piper vs The REAL world’s Champion Ric Flair in MSG!?!? You put them dead middle of the card and give them an early out apparently… But this show is so much more than that! Witness the BeefSlam apocalypse that was the Natural Disasters vs the Legion of Doom! And join us as we again gush over the commentary of Heenan, Gorilla and Alfred.
