It's the ultimate edition of WWEC Radio for the spring semester, and Tommy Sharp, Graham "GSM" Matthews and RJ Marceau go out with a bang by discussing everything from Sunday's WWE Payback pay-per-view to NXT from Wednesday to previewing SmackDown on Thursday! They kick off the hour by discussing the blockbuster signing of Eric Young to NXT and what's in store for him there, No Way Jose's second appearance in NXT, Tye Dillinger's impressive outing versus Austin Aries, Nia Jax embarking on a path of destruction, Alex Riley resurfacing, and more!
In the second half of the episode, the trio talk Payback and the latest on Enzo Amore's injury status, The Vaudevillians becoming the No. 1 contenders to the WWE Tag Team Championship, Baron Corbin losing to Dolph Ziggler, Ryback's seemingly final WWE match versus Kalisto, Dean Ambrose vs. Chris Jericho, AJ Styles contending for Roman Reigns' WWE World Heavyweight Championship, Emma's evolution, and Rusev's big win from Raw. Plus, we are really entering a new era in WWE?
It's the post-Payback edition of WrestleRant Radio with Graham "GSM" Matthews being joined by Jamie Lee Mac to analyze the event and much more in the world of wrestling! But before they break down the show, they discuss the breaking news of Ryback potentially leaving WWE this summer. Can he be blamed for wanting to leave the company? Also, they share their thoughts on Eric Young shockingly debuting in NXT last week as well the growing landscape of NXT, King of the Ring, and even R-Truth!
In the second half of the show, GSM and Jamie talk Payback featuring Baron Corbin suffering his first loss to Dolph Ziggler (and why it made zero sense), Kalisto and Ryback ripping it up on the Kickoff show, Enzo Amore's injury scare and The Vaudevillians becoming the new No. 1 contenders to the WWE Tag Team Championship, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens stealing the show, the Intercontinental Championship picture, Dean Ambrose and Chris Jericho's feud continuing, the Montreal Screwjob finish to the WWE Women's Championship match, the McMahons running Raw (again), and Roman Reigns vs. AJ Styles in the main event.
