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!
Ladies and Gentlemen, Step Right Up! To another edition of the Golden Age of Grappling! This week we take another dive into the "Home Video Collection" on the WWE Network as we look to 1988's Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake. See the origins of the character as well as his long running feud with The Dream Team! Its a collection of matches with crap endings and its apparently supposed to make you love the Beef!
We Reviewed Coliseum Home Video's Brutus the Barber Beefcake from 1988!
