Welcome one, welcome all! To another edition of The Golden Age of Grappling! This week we hop back in our time machine to head back to the Jersey Shore in the dying days of the last millennium!

New Jack hits an Encore edition of his Balcony Dive! Balls Mahoney wraps a chair around the head of Steve Corino! And the Ruler of the Universe, SID, comes to town!
Pop a squat, sit down, or just keep doing whatever you’re doing and hit play on this week's episode where we're discussing the World Wrestling All-Stars second ever PPV! and their first ever on american soil, REVOLUTION! Sadly, this company had a shorter future ahead of them than the Creed Knock-off band that opens the show. We have Mark Madden, Slick Johnson, and DP's least favorite tag-team of all time, KRONIK! Oh we also get lots of midget talk, the dance team has dwindled to just three able-to-walk women in jeans, and the Macho Man ain't making it to the show!
So listen as we review WWA(S)'s Revolution from 2002!
