Jim Harbaugh can do more than just talk recruits into coming to Michigan, he can also make a very compelling case for ‘The Big House’ to host WrestleMania.
“Why not the Big House?” he said. “Why not? 140,000 – I bet we could get in there for Wrestlemania. They’re trying to break the attendance record at Jerry Jones’ stadium in Dallas. (There’s) a great Canadian presence in wrestling. Why not Michigan and the Big House?”
I can see why Jim is one of the best recruiters in the nation. I already like the idea of 140K fans marking out to a Finn Balor entrance in 2017. The weather is somewhat of a concern but Mania has had good luck in NYC during that time of the year, so Michigan isn’t a problem.
Jim Harbaugh is no stranger to wrestling, he attended Michigan with one of the best WWE tag teams of all-time.
“I wouldn’t mind seeing that,” he said, explaining that his favorite wrestler is Ric Flair. He’s also friends with the Steiner brothers, a wrestling tag team who went to the University of Michigan.
“I went to school at the same time they were going to school and I consider myself friends with both the Steiner brothers,” Harbaugh said. “Had a chance to see them wrestle one time in Chicago. It was a big thrill to go to a match; I would go to another. Who doesn’t like a good wrestling match?”
