Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh is so fired up about the possibility of WrestleMania coming to Detroit's Ford Field, he called back the "Stoney and Bill Show" on which he had just appeared to suggest Michigan Stadium as a more premium stage.
Harbaugh appeared Wednesday morning on the show on 97.1 The Ticket. He has made weekly appearances all season. Michigan is in Orlando preparing for the Citrus Bowl on New Year's Day.
"Why not the Big House?" Harbaugh said, according to CBS Detroit blog, after he called back. "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. A great Canadian presence in wrestling. Why not Michigan and the Big House?"
It was suggested to Harbaugh by a show producer that he referee a Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan match.
"I'm in," he said, according to the blog.
Harbaugh told the station that Flair is his favorite wrestler and he's friends with the tag-team Steiner brothers, who attended Michigan the same time he did. Harbaugh saw them wrestle in Chicago.
"Who doesn't like a good wrestling match?" he said.
Harbaugh is one for accepting challenges, but would he wrestle, he was asked.
"I'd be one of those guys coming out with a towel, waving the towel," he said. "I'll be a corner man."
