6h 17m | Apr 1, 2024

Kris and David are guestless this week as we discuss the week-plus that was March 28-April 4, 1999. Topics of discussion include:

  • WrestleMania XV: The Raging Climax in Philadelphia, which was one of the biggest pro wrestling events of all-time up to that point.
  • Butterbean destroying Bart Gunn in the last-ever Brawl For All match.
  • Chyna and Triple H reuniting and then Triple H joining The Corporation the same night.
  • PETE ROSE making his shocking return to attack Kane while wearing the San Diego Chicken Costume
  • Sable and Tori having a match for the ages in all of the wrong ways, complete with ringside fans hearing Sable loudly complaining about Tori working too stiff.
  • The Undertaker vs. The Big Bossman in HELL IN A CELL…in a manner of speaking.
  • “Stone Cold” Steve Austin regaining the WWF Championship by defeating The Rock.
  • Stephanie McMahon making her debut as a TV character debut the night after Mania.
  • Vince and Shane McMahon GET DOWN at the WrestleMania Rage Party the night before the PPV.
  • ESPN's Outside the Lines takes on pro wrestling in an amazing episode that looks at the business’s influence on children and the ever-increasing rate of young wrestler deaths.
  • Sid burning his bridge in ECW as only he can.
  • Bret Hart and Goldberg having a very memorable angle in Toronto on the final WCW Monday Nitro before the unveiling of the infamous new logo and set.
  • All sorts of mass confusion in WCW as Kevin Nash's run as booker is in full insanity mode.

A highly newsworthy show and a great one at that, so LISTEN NOW!!!!
