Tommy and Shwaggers have their first special guest (Todd Geritz) to talk about the new era of wrestling. They go all in on WrestleMania 35 with Todd's deep knowledge of the WWE and discuss some of the issues surrounding the league - and also why it's still a whole lot of fun. They also deep-dive into the NBA playoffs, the NHL playoffs, fighting in hockey, Tiger Woods, NFL player moves, Leonard Fournette's suspended license, Puig, the AAF folding, and the signs of trouble brewing on the Lakers. All that plus a hilarious lightning round involving very ugly wrestlers and jerseys!
