The Something To Wrestle with Bruce Prichard podcast — featuring Bruce Prichard (WWE alum Brother Love), Conrad Thompson and a surprise guest — will conduct a wrestling talk show at the BB&T Center, after the Florida Panthers try to super splash the Edmonton Oilers during Florida Panthers’ Pro Wrestling Day on Saturday, March 17 (St. Patrick’s Day) in Sunrise.

Puck drop kicks at 2 p.m.

Before the game, longtime South Florida indie group Coastal Championship Wrestling -- under the direction of ECW and WWE alum Pablo Marquez -- will provide matches outside the building’s front doors. Afterward, the talk show.

Fans are excited ... as are Panthers Head Coach Bob Boughner, star goalie Roberto Luongo and star defenseman Keith Yandle.

The Panthers have been “Awwwwesome” since the All-Star Break, winning 16 of 21 games to become playoff relevant.

The Panthers are on a roll -- like Roman Reigns -- winning plenty of big matchups to vie for a playoff spot.

Reigns is headed to WrestleMania, challenging Brock Lesnar for the Universal title. Will the Panthers continue to bodyslam the competition and leapfrog the New Jersey Devils or Columbus Blue Jackets for a playoff spot...and Stanley Cup?

They will be tested on Pro Wrestling Day, looking to settle a score with the Oilers from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Free, cool Panthers lucky green T-shirts for the first 10,000 people, and food and beverage are included in a special ticket price.

The Something To Wrestle with Bruce Prichard podcast is special, too. Sports Illustrated named it the 2017 Wrestling Podcast of The Year.

Prichard was a longtime wrestling producer working hand-in-hand with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, and he also was the red-faced, over-the-top character, Brother Love in the then-WWF. Bruce most recently donned the famous all-white Brother Love suit as a special guest on WWE’s 25th Anniversary of Monday Night Raw. He recently worked for TNA Impact Wrestling.
