And while you listen, why not try your hand at the "Fuck This Company" drinking game? As long as you aren't operating any heavy machinery....

 "Rory McNamara is joined by Erick Landstrom and Bob Colling to look at how World Championship Wrestling rounded off 1998. This includes Raven-As-Spoilt-Brat, Ric Flair having a heart attack in the ring, a battle over getting to control the company for 90 days....and of course Starrcade. 173......and 1. 

Merry Christmas Bill"

They discuss President Hogan, give their thoughts on the arrival of Bam Bam Bigelow, break down the World War III PPV and finish up by previewing Flair-Bischoff and Goldberg - Nash at Starrcade.

Every. Single. Match. 
Listen with the light on.

 Wwf - September 98 - Vol 2

Chris Lacey is guest hosting on WWF this month and is joined by Dan Welling. We cover Breakdown and a momental episode of raw the day after. Undertaker Kane and Austin have a hectic month as Vince plays games to get the title off Austin. Plus we discuss the rise of the Rock’s popularity and try to understand how Val Venis is a face. 

Rory McNamara is joined by Bob Colling and Billy Johnson (plus the occasional technical gremlin!) for the onerous task of discussing the horrible Road Wild '98 PPV. If that wasn't grim enough, they also 'welcome' the Warrior and his Lexicon of Loonbaggery to WCW, wonder just why Eddie Guerrero is throwing coffee on himself and try to make sense of Bill Goldberg pinning somebody he isn't even in a match with. Enjoy! ;-) "
