With This Ring #3: Before WrestleMania

In this episode of With This Ring, Ryan and Cindy discuss matches that have more famous rematches at WrestleMania. Next time they'll look at those matches, but this week they look at their lesser known predecessors. In this show the duo talks about how the matches naturally built to WrestleMania, the Austin/Rock/Corporation feud of 1999, where matches will have to rank on Ryan’s scale to get in the top 20%, how Vince Russo main events worked, Richard Nixon, the politics of major sport arenas in Toronto and just what the hell is Midget Racing?
