It’s about that time, folks. WrestleMania is right around the corner, and we’re here to break down the card and give you our thoughts on how it could all play out. While the build wasn’t anything to write home about, you just never know how the event itself will pan out. God help us if we head into Monday Night Raw with Roman Reigns as our champion. Things will be interesting, to say the least… Maybe that’s why it could happen!

Also, we’ll talk a bit about our plans for the weekend in the Bay Area. Lots of great wrestling is taking place – from Dragongate to Ring of Honor, NXT, and beyond…

For most of the last 30+ years of my life, I've been watching WWE. As a kid, Monday Night Raw hooked me from the start. From Bret Hart and Razor Ramon, to Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, to CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.. I've witnessed the ups and downs and I'm proud to have enjoyed pro wrestling through the years.

Though I now watch in a much different fashion than I did when I was a kid (finding out Vince McMahon was the owner and Jack Tunney no more than a figurehead was like finding out Santa Claus did not exist), I feel like I have a much greater appreciation for the hard work pro wrestlers do and the things they sacrifice to entertain us.

It's still real to me, dammit!
