Graham "GSM" Matthews is back with another stacked edition of WrestleRant Radio, kicking things off by addressing the elephant in the room: the Hulk Hogan controversy. His racist remarks made the news this past week along with his immediate firing from WWE. GSM pulls no punches on the whole debacle including whether WWE was in the right in "erasing him from existence," why he should just stay off Twitter, how long it will take t repair his public image, and if we'll ever see him back in the company.
In the second half of the show, GSM welcomes former WWE Tough Enough contest Gabi Castrovinci to WrestleRant Radio to talk all about her experience on the show, the flawed fan voting system, seeing Raw live and in person, her drama with Amanda, how the show was produced, how it compared to past seasons, if she was surprised by her elimination, which WWE Hall of Famer gave her some tips, her future in wrestling and where she's currently training, and much more!
Less than 48 hours removed from a newsworthy WWE Battleground pay-per-view, Jamie Lee Mac joins Graham "GSM" Matthews on this week's WrestleRant Radio to break down the show! They kick off the discussion with their ranting thoughts on the horrible misuse of King Barrett and how the King of the Ring gimmick has been devalued. Is there any hope for him left? From there, they give their two cents on Randy Orton vs. Sheamus and what's next for both men.
Plus, could WWE bring in Sister Abigail for Bray Wyatt's act? Jamie makes a pitch for who could fit the role as well as thoughts on the Wyatt Family reunion. In the final half of the show, they talk the resurrection of the Divas division, why WWE went with the wrong finish for John Cena vs. Kevin Owens, The Undertaker's huge return, pros and cons of a match against Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam, potential opponents for Seth Rollins, and much more!
Stay tuned until the end of the episode of an announcement of which eliminated WWE Tough Enough contestant will be coming on the show next Tuesday for an exclusive interview!
On the latest WrestleRant Radio, longtime wrestling aficionado Jonn R. joins Graham "GSM" Matthews to talk all things wrestling and bounce around from a variety of topics! From the failures of WCW and TNA to why Japanese talent never got over in WWE to Sheamus' booking over the years to the spectacular Raw debuts of the NXT women, nothing is off limits! Not to mention WWE's Battleground pay-per-view is this upcoming weekend, and they give their full picks and predictions for each match on the advertised card! Who do they see walking out of St. Louis with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship?
Also, my apologies for the poor quality of the audio at some points, my crappy cell service is to blame! It's an issue I hope to fix going forward.
Joining Graham "GSM" Matthews for the latest edition of WrestleRant Radio is none other than fellow pro wrestling enthusiast, John Nap! They waste no time in breaking down all the latest happenings in the wrestling worlds, starting with their "State of WWE Address" including what they think WWE could do better, what they're already doing well and how 2015 is vastly differently from past years. They also analyze what can be done to make Monday Night Raw more "must-see" and pitch ideas for how that can be accomplished.
Furthermore, GSM and John talk about the "Beast in the East" special from this past Saturday and how it differed from every other event WWE has hosted this year. Lensar's massacre of Kofi Kingston on that night was something to behold, as well as his destruction of the Cadillac from Raw. They discuss Lesnar's mystique among many other topics: what's next for Neville, the amazing outings between Cesaro and John Cena, Finn Balor winning the NXT Championship, Dolph Ziggler potentially leaving WWE, and much more!
