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.

Ladies and Gentleman, Boys and Girls and Non-Binary folks, I have a deep philosophical question to ask you. What happens when the competition is over? Where does a conquering company go after there is nothing left to conquer? That is the question facing the WWF in the year of 2001. So gather together and listen as we recount the influx of underwhelming talent from WCW, The first ever Tag Team Bra and Panties match, and the Inaugural Brawl, A confusing mish-mash of a one-fall match that ends with zero regard for any of the newly introduced talent!
