Full disclosure: I’m not watching WrestleMania this year. Long-time Bake and Destroy readers probably get it – but for anyone who is new to the site, CM Punk is a dear friend of mine. For that reason, and also because I would rather watch my dog eat a used tampon than pay money to see the shitshow that is Randy Orton vs Batista, I am not watching. Am I stoked that Daniel Bryan could be in the main event? Uh, kinda. Daniel Bryan rules, don’t get me wrong… under different circumstances I would love to see him wrestle for the title in the biggest match of the night. I’m not going to get into wrestling politics here, this is a place for fun and food. Just know, as someone close to Punk, I don’t think he was treated fairly, and I support his decision to leave.
Now that that’s out of the way… let’s eat! OK so every year before WrestleMania I get a lot of requests for snack ideas and I usually ignore them because I’m lazy and kind of an asshole. But this year my friend, former editor of Wrestling’s Main Event and SugarSlam judge, Mike Edison asked me to call in to his show, Arts & Seizures this WrestleMania Sunday to talk snacks – so how could I say no?
First of all, I recommend checking out SugarSlam competitions throughout the years for inspiration that will last you for several year’s worth of ‘Manias. It’s a rabbit hole of weirdness and glory, but you won’t falling down it.
As for my vegan, WrestleMania-approved dishes, I point you to a few recipes I am personally responsible for putting on this Earth. Click the images to get to the recipes, dummy:
Of course, any dish instantly becomes a WrestleMania dish if you, oh, I don’t know… make it and then eat it while you watch WrestleMania. So click the recipe tab at the top of this site and start building your own ‘Mania menu!
