WrestleMania 30 For 30 – WrestleMania 21

WrestleMania XX podcast

Big D and Draven are back as WrestleMania 30 for 30 goes Hollywood.

WrestleMania 21 is often remembered for the rise of John Cena and Batista. I personally remember being at the Royal Rumble in Fresno preceding Mania (and yes, watched Vince fall on his ass as Cena and Batista butchered the finish) and thinking that we were about to enter a pretty cool period in WWE.

Listen to D and Draven (who was there live) as they discuss this and more on the WrestleMania 21 podcast, including:

– WWE goes to Saitama
– Draven’s live thoughts
– D’s burial of David Lagana
– The rise of Batista and Cena
– Eddie Guerrero’s last WrestleMania
– Kurt Angle vs. Shawn Michaels
– PWG

Check it out and let us know what you think.
