With no love sports to fill our needs, ESPN made the decision to air the Chicago Bulls docuseries "The Last Dance" months ahead of time. Every Sunday, Michael Jordan-centric docuseries became appointment television for any sports fan across the country.
Including wrestlers, many of whom grew up, like most basketball fans, worshipping Jordan. The series concluded on Sunday night with the final two episodes and the final episode touched on Dennis Rodman skipping practice in the 1998 NBA Finals to make an appearance on WCW Nitro alongside Hulk Hogan and the NWO.
Here's what wrestlers had to say.

We talked about basketball and WCW. He told me that he thought wrestling was fake but the wrestlers “beat the f$&@ out of” him.— Brennan Williams (608/924--) (@GREATBLACKOTAKU) May 18, 2020
After breakfast he gave me Hulk Hogan’s phone number. We hugged and went on our ways. I’ve had this number for a decade. Called it once. It worked. pic.twitter.com/52i2aQbEdk
