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, 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! See 60+ year-old men attempt to wrestle while even older men go into business for themselves when given 30 seconds of spotlight! The Assassin vs Dusty Rhodes! The Crusher Vs Ox Baker! And Eric Bischoff vs the lighting rig!
We reviewed WCW's Slamboree 1993! A Legends Reunion!
Welcome One! Welcome ALL! To the Golden Age of Grappling! This week we give thanks for Rough Old-Lady Wrestlers, Gorilla Monsoon's slightly racist affinity for not naming Asian girls. Jesse Ventura's Grand-pappy, Ephram The Body's, trip on the mayflower, Interviewers who look like Vince McMahon, Quick Tag psychology and Drawn out Pay Per Views!
Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys, Girls and Inbetweeners! Welcome! to the Golden Age of Grappling! This week witness the tragic breakup of Sweet Sapphire and Dusty Rhodes! The Big Bossman being inserted into 3 story-lines! Roddy Piper on commentary! And anyone and everyone speaking on microphones! Seriously, a third of this show is promo-time.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Please, step right up! To the return of The Golden Age of Grappling! Witness the continuing world of WCW in 1993. This time its BATTLE BOWL! A concept that WCW had used in previous shows, but in 1993 it was given its own pay per view! 8 Tag Team matches that allow their victors to move onto THE MATCH BEY... Wait, No the "SUPER..." no... THE BATTLE BOWL! A 16 man Over-the-top Battle Royal! And to the victor goes... A ring apparently, its never actually shown. Anyway, Witness the havoc that Mean Gene Oakerlund, FiFi and the Chaos of random drawing can wreak on World Championship Wrestling.
Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The Golden Age of Grappling is now in session! All Rise for the entrance of the honorable SHOCKMASTER! That's right, It's THAT time in wrestling. Just a few days after his disaster of a debut, the Shockmaster has been repackaged, downgraded and yet still remains the centerpiece for tonight's main event! WAR GAMES: The Match Beyond! But not only that, witness the Native American-Richie-Rich-upstart-babyface named Charlie Norris as he takes on the blonde-hair'd-blue-eye'd-whitey-McWhiterson, BIG SKY! Watch Arn Anderson try to wrestle a championship worthy tag match against the NASTY BOYS, And Finally the Godwins before they were Godwins, the team of Shanghai Pierce and Tex Slazenger!
