Everyone is ready for WrestleMania XXX – even Grizz!
Just as Hulk Hogan made his triumphant return to World Wrestling Entertainment, the Memphis Grizzlies’ mascot was spotted at FedExForum during a game against the Minnesota Timberwolves sporting his very own “Grizzamania” gear.
With WrestleMania approaching this weekend, sources say Grizz has more wrestling-inspired antics in store for Memphis fans. The Memphis Grizzlies return to FedExForum to face the Denver Nuggets this Friday night, April 4th. Tip off is 6:00PM.
It is well documented that Grizz has adapted to the Memphis culture since arriving in our city in 2001. Like many of us who grew up in Memphis, Grizz is a huge wrestling fan. Not only is a fan, but he’s even appeared in the ring against WWE Hall of Famer KoKo B. Ware.
Did you see Grizz powerbomb a Wizards fan through a table back in February?
Be on the lookout for another WrestleMania blast from the past. Be sure to follow Grizz on Twitter @grizz.
Hulk Hogan will be the host of WrestleMania XXX, which takes place this Sunday April 6th, 2014 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.
