It is officially WrestleMania week! The most wonderful time of the year for wrestling fans! Unfortunately, the week started off on a tragic note with the news of the accident that led to the passing of El Hijo del Perro Aguayo. We talked all about our thoughts on the accident and how it could affect the wrestling world. After that we had the uneasy task of shifting to the discussion of a possible Match Of The Year Candidate from Lucha Underground. We had some brief NXT chatter and then it was all about the Grandaddy Of Em All, WrestleMania Play Button! We fully previewed the event match-by-match by giving our anticipation levels and predictions! Last but certainly not least, we tally up the votes and announce our winning match for the #HWRManiaMadness tournament! It was determined by a very close margin! Hope everyone has a great WrestleMania week!
