Then, GSM and Caleb get into Raw by talking about Hulk Hogan's return to WWE and his TNA tenure, Undertaker's return and feud with Brock Lesnar going into 'Mania, the controversy surrounding Batista going into WrestleMania 30 and if he will turn heel before then, Bray Wyatt feuding with John Cena, what's next for The Shield and if they will split up next week on Raw, booking a tag team title match at WrestleMania, and if Christian will get "one more match" on the grandest stage of them all.
It's an exciting time to be a wrestling fan at the moment with Elimination Chamber, WrestleMania 30 and the launch of the WWE Network all drawing near, and this week's WrestleRant Radio covers it all!

They also discuss Christian's contract expiring later this year, Scott Hall potentially being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, the name changes for Cesaro and Big E, turmoil in TNA (really randomly albeit brief discussion!), and how the WWE Network will affect the WrestleMania 30 buyrate.
