DX Invades WCW, A Surprise Royal Rumble Entrant, And More | Wrestle Buddies Episode 39

This week, we talk about the D-Generation X invasion of WCW and the Smackdown Hacker returns.


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?

All that, plus we answer your questions. New episodes of Wrestle Buddies are released every Thursday on the podcast platform or app of your choice, including Spotify, Stitcher, and Apple Podcasts. You can also keep up to date with the podcast by following it on Twitter.
