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! WCW Shows off their collection of play by play announcers! and we get a legitimately fantastic set of matches.

And although Vince Russo isn’t involved, His influence is in full effect as EVERY MATCH HAS A STIPULATION! And Most of them are part of a tournament to crown the first Heavyweight Championship!
