Coming off another whirlwind of a week in wrestling, Graham "GSM" Matthews, RJ Marceau and special guest Marlin break it all down on the latest WrestleRant Radio!

In the latter half of the show, GSM, RJ and Marlin give their full thoughts on the Fastlane pay-per-view and Monday's Raw, including the odd booking of Randy Orton. Is a match against Seth Rollins still in the cards for WrestleMania? Speaking of The Show of Shows, John Cena vs. Rusev and Bray Wyatt vs. Undertaker could very well go either way, and the panel takes it upon themselves to book both bouts.
