Welcome, boys and girls, to another episode of The Lawcast! This week we're continuing the Wrestlemania anthology as we tackle one of the greatest Wrestlemanias of all time, Wrestlemania XX. On the night this show happened it was probably the greatest Wrestlemania ever and one of the most beautiful moments in pro wrestling history. How does the show hold up on re-watch with knowledge of how Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero's lives ended? This show is loaded with history as it's the last go for The Rock, Brock Lesnar, and Goldberg. It's the launching pad for John Cena and Randy Orton as superstars. And the return of the WWE Hall of Fame. All that and more, this time on The Lawcast.
Hey guys! If you haven't joined our the Lawcast Patreon yet, here's a look at what's new:
We now have SIX bonus episodes available to our donors, including a look at the rarely seen original pilot of Smackdown, an episode of So You Think You Can? where Steve is forced to try to fix the many, many issues with Starrcade 97, and we just released an episode of The 90s Sports podcast, something that started as a joke, but that people actually gave us money because they wanted to listen to it. You guys are weird and we love you. We also have an episode where Cewsh takes his turn in the booking chair and will try to fix the calamitous mess of ECW December to Dismember. We also have a recap of the past decade in wrestling, with a focus on the big picture stuff. How did WWE go from a monopoly to having actual competition? What sparked the women's revolution? What caused New Japan to become the freight train it is today? And what does the next decade hold in store?
Our latest bonus episode is a State of the Wrestling Industry Address, where we look at what is working and not working in modern wrestling, and try to predict its future.
So come on. Think of it as hiring us for a job where you only pay us $2.50 an hour. I'm pretty sure that's not even legal, but we'll just keep it between us.
Also, we have finally found a way to meet the request that we get the most often, and we finally now have a full archive for the Lawcast where you can go and listen to us talk about Sid for nearly 100 episodes. In the future we'll have playlists up there to make it easier to navigate, but for now we've got the whole deal there for the taking. Enjoy!
