Pat Mullin and Mark Radulich present their continued look at the history of WrestleMania; The Mania of Wrestlemania 17!
On this episode we’re looking at the end of “The Monday Night Wars.” After WrestleMania 2000 ended, Austin and the Undertaker came back from injury and joined The Rock in an extended feud with the McMahon-Helmsley faction. This era also saw the rise of Kurt Angle into a main event attraction. The Dudley’s, The Hardy’s, Edge and Christian would battle each other in year long feud that would culminate in what would eventually be known as Tables, Ladders and Chairs. The Radicalz would rise to prominence with Chris Benoit in the title picture.
While the WWE was riding to untold heights, WCW was in a tailspin from which it could never recover. We’ll talk about the AOL Time Warner merger and what it meant for WCW. Plus Vince Russo’s influence on WCW’s creative, how the NWO was WCW’s greatest success and curse, Eric Bischoff and what exactly led to WCW being bought by WWE, thus ending The Monday Night War right before WrestleMania 17.

About Radulich in Broadcasting’s Beginnings
Mark Radulich has been an internet personality since 2004 with his Progressive Conservatism blog. He then took that blog to the airwaves and created a podcast for it. It then changed to PC Live. After that, he brought out the 411mania Ground and Pound Radio as well.
Also, Mark would partner up with another 411mania alum, Sean Comer, to create the movie franchise review podcast Long Road to Ruin and then Robert Cooper to create the metal album review podcast, The Metal Hammer of Doom. Robert Winfree then added his own podcast, Everybody Loves a Bad Guy. That’s when the Radulich in Broadcasting Network was born. Joining Winfree in having their own podcasts were super fan’s Jesse Starcher (Source Material). Finally, Winfree and Radulich added a weekly movie review show to the ever-growing lists of podcasts on the Network called Damn You Hollywood.
