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.
As a huge wrestling fan (see here, here, here), I’d never had the chance to go to a Wrestlemania before. That all changed with Wrestlemania 33 in Orlando, where I not only attended the “Showcase of the Immortals,” but also went to NXT Takeover, saw a Jim Ross panel with Mick Foley, Bruce Prichard, and Jim Cornette, AND attended the Monday Night Raw after ‘Mania.
And man did I have a lot of thoughts on all of it.
