    The first...Royal Rumble for the title

    The first...Royal Rumble for the title

    For our first show of 2020, we're cheating a little bit but have been desperate to talk about this show. So Ash and Joel travel back to the golden age of early 90s WWF and look back at arguably the greatest Royal Rumble of all time from 1992. The first Rumble where the WWE Title is on the line sees a story arch woven throughout the show by Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan - in career high performances - as Ric Flair defies the odds of the best WWF has to offer. There's also chat on Piper, The Mountie, Hulkster, and of course Marty Jannetty. With a tear, in my eye, this is the greatest look back of Royal Rumble '92 I've ever heard.

    The first...Halloween Havoc

    The first...Halloween Havoc

    It's a podcast that goes bump in the night as we take you back to 1989 for the first ever Halloween Havoc - and it was a tough old watch. Ash and Joel take in a card over heavy with tag matches, including a main event cage match full of bells, whistles and swinging ropes - because why not? There's also chat on all the recent goings on in WWE, AEW and NXT as well as look back at when WCW fried one of their stars in a electric chair. It's a frightfully good listen!

    The first...SmackDown

    The first...SmackDown

    After a massive week of wrestling, Ash and Joel look back at the first SmackDown on Fox, the first full network episode of NXT and the very first AEW Dynamite. Then, in the main meat of the show, we go back to April 1999 for the first-ever and pilot episode of WWF SmackDown. There's vintage Rock, peak Stone Cold, Vince pretending to be nice and a throwaway match holding five storylines together! All wrapped-up in a ninety minute window of how ridiculously fun the Attitude Era was.

    The first...King of the Ring

    All hail the King! With WWE bringing back the King of the Ring tournament, Ash and Joel travel back to 1993 to relive the first-ever King of the Ring ppv. A show very much centred around Bret 'The Hitman' Hart, the boys discuss his three very different bouts across the card, wax lyrical on Mr. Perfect and look back at Hulk Hogan's last ppv match before his switch to WCW - and there's always a story behind a Hulkster bout. There's also chat on the current product and your chance to enter Joel's raffle for a rare piece of wrestling memorabilia!

Elsewhere from MSG there's chat on Ultimate Warrior's iconic title win, the stupidly long length of the opener and why Vince McMahon ever preferred Demolition over The Powers of Pain!
