Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Step right up for another edition of The Golden Age of Grappling! This week we review a truly historic wrestling event put on by two (actually 3 but whatever) companies inside of a historically and continually oppressive country. 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!

One of the best Promotional Heel turns! The WCW finally admitting to mispronouncing Ultimo as Ultimate! A misunderstood sting resorts to homing pigeons of questionable size to attempt to communicate with WCW officials!

We watched the very last WCW Clash of the Champions! Its Clash 35 from August of 1997!
Gather round and hear the tale, my little ones, For tis the tale of when the WcW decided to promote, sell tickets to, and broadcast an "Unsanctioned" event!
