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!Read More
This week we once again look to “The Granddaddy of them all!” And like many Granddads Starrcade, has sadly passed on...

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.
