On this edition, I talk to author Guy Evans, author of NITRO: The Incredible Rise and Inevitable Collapse of Ted Turner's WCW. We talk about WCW, how he came to do the book and how he got interviews with so many key figures involved behind the scenes. Evans talks about his wrestling fandom, his interview techniques, how he decided who was being honest and who was lying, where the nWo angle was headed, how things ended in WCW and what would've happened if WCW wasn't sold to WWE. It was a really fun interview. After the interview, I talk about WWE WrestleMania 36, which is this weekend and my predictions for the winners and losers of the match.
