Ep. 49: Holy Sh*t, Is Daniel Bryan Actually Going To Wrestle?

March 13th, 2018
00:0000:00

We turned on the microphones immediately following WWE SmackDown as Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn gave Shane McMahon an epic beatdown. This lead to the logical question: does this mean Daniel Bryan is actually going to wrestle at WrestleMania 34? Ryan, Kyle, and Joe (subbing for Justin this week) are here to debate a possible Bryan in-ring return. We also discuss John Cena's epic promo from RAW, why the Fabulous Moolah is a TERRIBLE namesake for the women's battle royal at WrestleMania and much, much more.
