[ Straight to Download Episode ]
The program was opened with a review of Sunday’s WWE Elimination Chamber PPV, thoughts on whether putting John Cena vs. the Miz as RAW’s main event is going to increase buy rates/ticket sales, opinions on the reveal of the mysterious 2/21/11 man as the Undertaker who was quickly followed by the return of HHH, whether “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan is WWE Hall of Fame material and previewed some of the contributors choices for WrestleMania 27 matches.
Our 100% free to listeners “WrestleMania Memories” guest was former WWE creative team member David Lagana who is currently a consultant for Ring of Honor. This hour long interview took listeners through a typical WWE creative team meeting, what the atmosphere was like working with Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon-Levesque, Jim Cornette, Paul Heyman, Michael Hayes Ed Koskie & Brian Gewirtz, how it differed from a season in the writers room on the Friends TV program, transitioning from a writer’s assistant lead writer of Smackdown/ECW, leaving and moving onto ROH. Mr. Lagana helped preview Saturday’s ROH 9th Anniversary iPPV and talked about his new I Want Wrestling website which features new podcast options.
