Throwback Thursday: Royal Rumble 1988 (12/14/17)

Royal Rumble 1988

Listener discretion is advised.

In the very first edition of WNW Radio's Throwback Thursday, Brendan and his good ol' pal Jason watch the very first Royal Rumble (1988) LIVE from Hamilton, Ontario.

This is a watch-along commentary that you listeners can check out by syncing it up with the WWE Network and follow along as the guys lose their minds during the ungodly long Dino Bravo weightlifting segment, watch in amazement at the surprisingly awesome anomaly of a women's match (especially for the time period in question) and question some of Vince McMahon's fairly racist commentary.

If it's easier, you can also head over to our PodBean site or find us on iTunes and download the episode so you can play it from any device.
