Episode notes

The leader of the “Yes Movement” is back!

Daniel Bryan became one of the most beloved stars of WWE throughout 2013 on the road to WrestleMania XXX. But, two years ago Daniel Bryan was forced to retire at the peak of his career and ability.

Now’s he’s officially been cleared to compete by a number of neurologist. And as exciting as it is to see him back doing what he does best… it’s understandable to be nervous. The Nation of Conversation breaks down how they’re feeling now that Daniel is officially back and how WWE can balance showing off one of their best wrestlers with keeping him safe.

And the Nation is heavily divided on the Ultimate Deletion between Woken Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt. Was it the pinnacle of the Hardy Compound series, a fun lark that didn’t live up to its predecessors or a terrible use of the final segment of RAW?

Plus, Brock Lesnar finally showed up to confront and beatdown Roman Reigns before their Universal Title match at WrestleMania. The team is unanimously onboard with the match… but there’s a definite disconnect between the story and the audience.

All this, plus some thoughts on Mark Henry entering the Hall of Fame, who Braun Strowman’s WrestleMania partner could be and the value in supporting the people you love.
