It's a historic edition of WrestleRant Radio this week as not only are Graham "GSM" Matthews and RJ Marceau joined by WWEC Radio's Tommy Sharp in-studio for the first time ever, it's also Mr. Marceau's final episode as an Endicott College student! The trio talk the slew of releases from Friday and if any of them caught them off guard, what the future holds for each of them and how it ties into the "New Era" in WWE. From there, they get into Monday's Raw and Dean Ambrose destroying Chris Jericho's light-up jacket, Dana Brooke making her Raw debut and a possible plan for Becky Lynch, and The Family vs. The Club.
