Mike and Lindsey have survived their trip to New Orleans and WrestleMania and are here to regale Danielle Radford with stories of Ice Cream Christmas!

They’ll talk all about why they learned about the wonderful parts of wrestling… And some of the worst parts of the fandom.

But we can’t dwell on the past for too long, because there’s a ton of new things to deal with as well, especially the Superstar shake-up! RAW and Smackdown is full of new stars. But which are set up for success and which are we most concerned about?

All of that plus, a requiem for the relationship between John Cena and Nikki Bella, the life and career of Burno Sammartino and a look at what WWE programming is like a mini-ice cream Christmas every week.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford , Lindsey Kelk

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

Welcome to our big finale of the Max Fun Drive!

In that spirit, here’s producer Julian Burrell interviewing two people from the world of wrestling.

First, in honor of the HBO’s "Andre the Giant" documentary, comic writer and artist Box Brown joins the show to discuss his time writing his own biography of the 8th Wonder of the World entitled "Andre the Giant: Life and Legend". Brown discusses what made Andre so special and why it was important to show Andre in the book with all of his flaws intact.

Next, Chris Bournea joins the program to discuss his new film "Lady Wrestler: The Amazing, Untold Story of African-American Women in the Ring." In it, he covers the lesser discussed black women of the 50’s and 60’s. He’ll talk about some of the biggest women wrestlers of this time and how he sought them out to uncover one of wrestling’s best-kept secrets.

We’ve survived the biggest weekend of wrestling of the year!

Hal and Danielle are joined by Producer Julian Burrell to break down the biggest Ice Cream Christmas of all time.

The team will have a deep dive into a few of the biggest events from Lucha vs. Impact and Supercard of Honor in addition to what they consider the show of the weekend NXT TakeOver: New Orleans.

Saturday’s NXT event featured amazing matches from beginning to end, including what may go down to be one of the greatest wrestling matches in WWE history. We’ll try not to get too excited.

And the biggest show of the weekend was none other than WrestleMania. And while the team agrees that it was on the positive side of shows, there are a few issues that they had with it. That includes that the wrong match closed out the show and why Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar did nothing for either competitor or the live audience.

Plus, a look at the stars who got called up from NXT to the main roster, where NXT could be heading in the future and where this Mania ranks in the all-time history of the event.

Happy Max Fun Drive!

We’re on the cusp of WrestleMania/ Ice Cream Christmas and boy is it ever an amazing time to be a wrestling fan!

This weekend will be a cornucopia of events in New Orleans. Whether you’re invested in Supercard of Honor and the culmination of Kenny Omega vs. Cody Rhodes for the soul of Bullet Club, Impact Wrestling vs. Lucha Underground’s crossover show, or NXT TakeOver: New Orleans which will feature Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa’s grudge match, it’s safe to say there’s something for everyone.

But of course, the biggest event of the weekend will be WrestleMania 34. Over six hours of wrestling LIVE in the Super Dome! Between Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar, AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura and more, the team is HYPED.

But there are still some concerns: Why is the Cruiserweight Title Match on the pre-show when it has the potential to be one of the best matches of Mania? Could WWE use Carmella’s money in the bank cash-in to disrupt Asuka vs. Charlotte Flair? And how will anyone survive a week with SO MUCH wrestling?!
