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.
Jonah Keri is on the phone! The New York Times best-selling author and former Grantland baseball columnist talks about being a free agent himself this year, how he landed so many jobs, and whether he’d give up The Simpsons if it meant getting back the Expos.
