This week on Wrestle Buddies, GameSpot’s professional wrestling podcast, Chris E. Hayner and Mat Elfring are reliving the glory days of the Attitude Era with a look back at the time WWE and WCW almost had a crossover–sort of. There’s also a special guest stopping by to declare his spot in the Royal Rumble match, though he has no business doing so.
First, we go back to 1998 to study the DX “invasion” of WCW, which was less of an invasion and more of three guys making dirty jokes and driving around in a jeep they called a tank. Do you remember the part where they tried to break into an office park? Because we sure do.
Then, the Smackdown Hacker is back and on a mission. This time, instead of simply hijacking the show, he’s a guest that’s declaring his entry into the 2021 Royal Rumble match. No, he’s not a WWE wrestler–or any kind of wrestler. He also doesn’t want a championship match or to go to Wrestlemania. Why would that stop him, though?
