Royal Rumble preview with SI’s Justin Barrasso: Ep. 69

He covers the WWE and pro wrestling for Sports Illustrated, and he’s got a lot to say about RAW 25 and the Royal Rumble. Justin Barrasso took some time from breaking scoops and working sources to talk about one of the busiest WWE weeks in a long time.

He has picks for who should win the Rumble, who will win it, what he liked at RAW 25 and what could’ve been better. The most interesting part of our talk to me, though, was why he doesn’t want Daniel Bryan to return to the ring at this year’s Rumble.

Keep up with Justin on Twitter and read him every week at SI.com. For more fun stuff, follow me on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook too!

The reigning, defending, undisputed champ as the most-listened-to episode in Mike Janela Show history makes his triumphant return, as the show’s first-ever two-time guest.

Stat Guy Greg, from ESPN’s pro wrestling podcast “Cheap Heat,” jumped on the line to talk about what happened to “Cheap Heat” after ESPN shut down Grantland, preview the 2016 Royal Rumble, pick the greatest Rumble wrestler ever (here’s my blog on the issue), debate who would win the match if it was real, and do not preview the new season of “Total Divas.”

Plus, here are links to Greg on Twitter, “Cheap Heat” at the ESPN Podcenter, and the first episode with Greg on my show.
