Ladies and Gentlemen, It is with great honor that I respectfully welcome you the 100th edition of The Golden Age of Grappling! This week we tackle the great white whale that has been staring us down since the show's inception. A wrestling event so infamous for 2 absolutely awful gimmick matches that it would spawn possibly 100's of wrestling podcasts and publications to review it. BUT Unlike most of those shows... DP, Tony G, and our Guest Reviewer Shaun McG, The white-meat babyfaces that you know as your hosts of this little shindig... well, we were there live and in living color! So batten down the hatches and set our bearings for a place not down in any map; true places never are... For we sail for the nation of Russo in the land of Action Nonstop.
Welcome one! Welcome All! To the latest edition of The Golden Age of Grappling! This week is a truly... Honestly...god awful wrestling event. WCW in 1999 was prepared to give you MORE.

Where they wanted to surprise you SO badly, that the surprise is that there isn't really a show!
