Hey gang!  It's time for a very special episode of the SharpShooter Cast - TJR's only weekly podcast.  We take pride in that.  You've gotta take pride in something, am I right?  This week we'll be previewing WrestleMania 30, and giving you our personal predictions for the biggest night in professional wrestling.  This is always an awesome week for wrestling fans, and we're really looking forward to sharing our thoughts with all of you.

As usual, we'll also be discussing this week's Raw, which of course focused primarily on selling WrestleMania 30.  We're a bit lukewarm on calling it a good show on its own, but as a hard sell for Mania, we think it was a success.  Plus, all the other silliness that you've come to expect from the SharpShooter Cast as well!

Just a quick reminder, I've been moonlighting as a guest reviewer for Smackdown recently.  It's been a lot of fun, and you can read my newest review here: WWE Smackdown Review - March 28, 2014.

Now on to this week's show!

What do you guys and gals think?  Did Raw successfully sell you on WrestleMania 30?  And who do you think is going to stand tall at the end of the show?  Daniel Bryan, Randy Orton, Batista, or (God help us) Triple H?  What's the match you're most looking forward to?  Can't wait to hear back from you, and I HOPE we're incredibly happy at the start of next week's show.  That would mean great things for Daniel Bryan...
