This week on The Work Of Wrestling podcast Tim Kail is once again joined by Al Monelli to discuss how a heel Shawn Michaels went out in a blaze of glory headed into WrestleMania 14. Tim & Al discuss everything from the differences between today's main roster and the wrestlers of 1997 (from clothing choice to promo delivery), as well as the sudden shift in DX from a violent, nihilistic stable under Shawn's leadership into a pandering, militaristic group at war with WCW. Tim & Al also cover the importance of the RAW IS WAR intro, and the inspiring nature of Shawn Michaels WreslteMania 14 entrance. Follow Tim on Twitter @MaximusWrestler. Follow Al @MonelliFilms.
