Grizz is ready for WrestleMania


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.
