Episode 189 - WWF vs. WCW: THE MONDAY NIGHT WAR

Stop us if this sounds familiar: impossibly muscled heroes in tights do battle with colorful villains, their operatic exploits unfolding over years and decades of serialized, heavily mythologized storylines. Even jabronis know that professional wrestling is as "fake" as any superhero comic - and just essential to the canon of American childhood. Never was this clearer than the late '90s heyday of the World Wrestling Federation and World Championship Wrestling, two brash companies whose head-to-head showdown for TV wrestling supremacy catapulted the artform to new heights of popularity, creativity, and controversy. 

Cody Stallings tags in to give us a crash course on the WWF-WCW rivalry, as we grapple with its most shocking swerves and fiercest feuds in this pay-per-view-length episode. And that's the bottom line, 'cause WWWW said so!

WCW Bash at the Beach 1996 - The Outsiders vs. Sting, Lex Luger, and Randy Savage
