What if Daniel Bryan could wrestle The Rock in their primes on a dream WrestleMania card? That’s what Stat Guy Greg from ESPN’s “Cheap Heat” came on my show to figure out. He and I lay down the rules and draft our respective rosters for “WrestleMAJia”(1:35), then put our picks in dream matches (32:15). Finally, we talk about what we’re most excited for and worried about at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans (1:01:40). Which I’ll be attending — too sweet!
Spoiler alert: My card is a thousand times better, and that’s the bottom line.
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.
