Coming off a historic WrestleMania 31 event, Graham "GSM" Matthews, RJ Marceau and special guest John Napolitano break it all down on a special two hour edition WrestleRant Radio, kicking it off with the pre-show and Big Show winning the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Who did it really benefit? In the opening match on the main card, Daniel Bryan captured his first Intercontinental Championship, but whether it'll pay dividends for the midcard remains to be seen. The trio discuss that in addition to Randy Orton's show-stealing match with Seth Rollins (what a finish!) and the highlights and low points of Sting's first ever WWE match against Triple H.
In the second half of the show, GSM, RJ and John talk about the Divas match and John Cena vs. Rusev for the United States Championship. Was it wise for Cena to hand Rusev his first loss in WWE? From there, chaos ensues when discussing The Undertaker vs. Bray Wyatt and why both guys had a legitimate claim to win. And who can forget the amazing ending to the show that saw Seth Rollins cash in Money in the Bank to become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion? Tune in for their two cents on it all as well as what the future of WWE holds and much more!
Christmas comes early as it's WWE WrestleMania week on WrestleRant Radio! Graham "GSM" Matthews hosts a grand panel of wrestling experts and aficionados featuring RJ Marceau, Mike Yoder and Arden Franklin with their COMPLETE PREDICTIONS for the premiere pay-per-view. Before getting into their picks, the group kick off the two hour spectacular by discussing the breaking news of Brock Lesnar resigning with WWE and what it means for Sunday as well as what they believe the future holds for The Beast Incarnate.
In a full preview of WrestleMania, the panel give their two cents on the WWE Tag Team Championship match on the Kickoff show, if AJ Lee and Paige are set to feud (again) after WrestleMania, if Seth Rollins cashes in Money in the Bank and becomes champion, how to book The Undertaker vs. Bray Wyatt, why Rusev should not lose to John Cena, who walks out as Intercontinental Champion, if Sheamus will return, and so much more!
Feeling lucky? It's a very special St. Patrick's Day edition of WrestleRant Radio this week as Graham "GSM" Matthews flies solo to break down Monday's Raw, including all the latest updates and additions to the WrestleMania 31 card. To kick things off, GSM gives his general thoughts on how the WrestleMania card is shaping up, concerns regarding its potential to be mediocre, what match is likely to steal the show, and more. He also talks Sting's surprise appearance at the end of Raw and if his match against Triple H has more of a reason to be the main event of 'Mania than WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns.
Speaking of which, Lesnar and Reigns are confirmed to be confronting each other on next week's episode, but is it too little too late for fans to care? GSM talks Paul Heyman's recent phenomenal performances, why Rusev and Lana should never split up, the lackluster build for the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, and why the build for the Intercontinental Championship Ladder match has been a joke thus far. Plus, he ranks his top 15 most underrated matches in the history of WrestleMania!
Be sure to stay tuned until the very end for some exciting news from GSM regarding an upcoming interview on HiddenRemote.com!
With only three weeks to go until WrestleMania 31, WrestleRant Radio is full of thoughts from Monday's (atrocious) episode of Raw, including the confirmation of several new matches to the 'Mania card. Among them is John Cena vs. Rusev for the United States Championship, though how they got to that point was questionable. Graham "GSM" Matthews, RJ Marceau and special guest Jacob Bloom get into that as well as their thoughts on the use of Brock Lesnar (or lack thereof) in recent weeks and if Paul Heyman is also on his way out of WWE. Could the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match be in jeopardy?
In other news, The Undertaker vs. Bray Wyatt has been officially confirmed for WrestleMania, but who comes out of it looking good? The trio talk about the matchup in addition to whether the end of the streak last year was really worth it. Stay tuned for more topics of discussion including Connor The Crusher receiving the first ever Warrior Award, other potential matches for WrestleMania, failed gimmicks, Macho Man Randy Savage going into the WWE Hall of Fame, and much more!
As WrestleMania 31 inches closer, Graham "GSM" Matthews and RJ Marceau welcome Sal Dangelo to WrestleRant Radio this week to discuss all the latest rumblings in the world of wrestling, including Rey Mysterio's recent release from WWE! What was the reasoning behind it, what's next for him, and did he deserve a final farewell before leaving? On the subject of Superstars splitting the company, Brock Lesnar has been in the news this week for his shocking appearance at UFC 184. The panel question if his "falling out" with Vince McMahon will affect his upcoming title defense at WrestleMania and whether he's UFC bound.
From there, GSM, RJ and Sal review Raw from Monday night, including Jon Stewart's critically acclaimed segment with Seth Rollins. Will it benefit Mr. Money in the Bank in the long run? Also, it was a big night for the women on Raw as AJ Lee returned to aid Paige and Alundra Blayze was announced as the latest inductee in the WWE Hall of Fame. The trio gives their thoughts on all this along with rumors of Samoa Joe being close to signing with WWE, the Intercontinental Championship match at WrestleMania, Roman Reign's development, and much more!
