Heroes of Wrestling was a professional wrestling pay-per-view that took place in October of 1999 in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi at the Casino Magic. The event consisted entirely of poorly planned and even more poorly executed matches between former 80's wrestlers and, at the time, current wrestlers.

It is widely regarded as the worst pro wrestling PPV of all time.

The Episode[edit | edit source]

  • The full official title of this episode is "The Giant Spectacular Tirades All-Star Special #1"
  • This episode is the first in the show's history to not cover a movie. It was originally planned to be a short recording (under an hour) as a break between all the pain of Episodes 16-20 and the eventual Transformers discussions. However, it was not meant to be, apparently.
  • You can thank James' 3,300+-word summary for that

Scores[edit | edit source]

The hosts, in addition to their normal Final Words, also gave individual "grades" to each match.
