Raw 25 on Monday. The Royal Rumble on Sunday. And Sports Illustrated wrestling reporter Justin Barrasso in between to break down both. Justin picks the best part and his favorite part (they’re different!) of Raw 25, and what could’ve been done better. Then, he picks his winners for the men’s and women’s Royal Rumble matches, what surprise entries he would pop for, and why he doesn’t want Daniel Bryan to come back to the ring Sunday.
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.
