As 7 teams vie for the right to be crowned the inaugural NWA World's Tag Team Champions! Its the Bill Watts and Jim Ross experience in mid 1992, so top rope rules are... Wait, not in effect? except for one match, but only if they are by themselves... Oh and Bill Watts is sending the old title belt to a Japanese prince who contacted him online about an investment opportunity... just... Never-mind, Bill Watts World is an interesting place. commonly disrespected for being boring, but for our money, we found ourselves a real gem of a B-show PPV in this one! Including a hell of an opener and a downright fantastic heavyweight title match between Sting and Big Van Vader!
So join us as we review WCW's Great American Bash 1992!
Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Step right up for another edition of The Golden Age of Grappling!

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!
