WrestleMania 30 For 30 – WrestleMania XIX Part 2

WrestleMania XIX podcast

This is the follow-up to part one of our WrestleMania XIX podcast from Seattle.

In part two, Brandon Draven, Big D, and GG discuss the entire card and more including:

– Our thoughts on why the card did such a low buy rate
– Why Nathan Jones’ role changed on the show
– Trish Stratus’ beauty and a really good women’s match
– A summary on Hogan vs. Vince
– Draven recaps Jericho vs. Michaels
– Stone Cold Steve Austin’s last match and everything surrounding it
– Brock Lesnar and Kurt Angle’s issues before and after the match
– And why in the hell was Rock allowed to wear a vest that looked exactly like Steve Austin’s?

(This is also the last 30 for 30 GG is going to be regularly a part of until WrestleMania 25 and 26. The trio becomes a duo for the most part from here on out.)
