Episode 34 Ephemera:
- Wrestlemania II vs Wrestlemania III (David was right that it was Wrestlemania 2 in three locations, Mac was right that it was the British Bulldogs vs. The Dream Team, and Hulk Hogan body slammed King Kong Bundy in WM2 and Andre the Giant in WM3. Big John Studd was definitely body slammed somewhere. Also, professional wrestling is a performing art. We encourage you to at us.)
