Episode notes

Hal, Lindsey and Danielle are back together… in a manner of speaking. They’re hanging out remotely just like 90% of wrestlers in the world. 

This week we finally got to see what WWE is going to do about WrestleMania in the wake of safety concerns with COVID-19. The show will take place the first weekend of April as scheduled, with some major differences; It will take place in an empty Performance Center over the course of two days. 

While this is probably the best way to have a show on the scale of WrestleMania in the midst of a pandemic, we’ll speculate as to how you have the biggest show of the year without any fans present.

Plus, we’ll explain why AEW has already gotten the empty arena shows down a bit better than WWE so far… even if their other shortcomings are still present.

Plus, the long awaited rebirth of Gronka-donka-doo!
