Ep. 49: Holy Sh*t, Is Daniel Bryan Actually Going To Wrestle?

We turned on the microphones immediately following WWE SmackDown as Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn gave Shane McMahon an epic beatdown. This lead to the logical question: does this mean Daniel Bryan is actually going to wrestle at WrestleMania 34? Ryan, Kyle, and Joe (subbing for Justin this week) are here to debate a possible Bryan in-ring return. We also discuss John Cena's epic promo from RAW, why the Fabulous Moolah is a TERRIBLE namesake for the women's battle royal at WrestleMania and much, much more.
