It is highly regarded as the worst Pay Per View in the history of WCW!  We just looked at the card and said, “Why not?!”  1991 was a rough year for WCW.  When Ric Flair left the company during a contract dispute it left the promotion in shambles.  Just days later they had top put on one of their biggest events of the year, and unfortunately this show was the result.  We have cage matches, a Russian Chain Match, a Lumberjack Match, and a whole lot of sub par wrestling.  The guys make the best of it and give you a highly entertaining podcast, even if the show they are discussing was terrible.
