This week we once again look to “The Granddaddy of them all!” And like many Granddads Starrcade, has sadly passed on... (Although as of late there has been an unholy resurrection of the brand) ...But back to the subject at hand! THIS WEEK on the GOLDEN AGE OF GRAPPLING! 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!

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Step right up for another edition of The Golden Age of Grappling! This week we review a truly historic wrestling event put on by two (actually 3 but whatever) companies inside of a historically and continually oppressive country. Truly a fascinating tale as Eric Bischoff and his “bestest friend in the whole world” Muhammad Ali tried there hands at some publicity diplomacy! Spoiler, North Korea is still a terrible place, and likely no amount of figure four leg locks will fix it. But beyond the politics and danger, there was wrestling. Was it good? That’s what we’re here to decide! So join us as we review NJPW and WCW’s Collision In Korea from 1995!
Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys, Girls and Inbetweeners, step right up! To The Golden Age of Grappling! This week the retirement home lets out as World Championship Wrestling hosts the Legends Reunion!
