Graham "GSM" Matthews kicks off the summer season on WrestleRant Radio in a major way by interviewing former WWE star Brodus Clay now known as Tyrus in TNA on this week's episode! He has plenty to say about his time on NXT (you know, back when it was still a crappy competition show), how WWE cared so little about the program, and who he conspired with to cheat toward the end! In another interesting tidbit, he reveals what inspired his shoot promo on the NXT Season 4 finale and how it landed him with Alberto Del Rio for a time in 2011.
And what would the interview be without some talk about his Funkasaurus persona? He discusses why he was given the character by management, how he got it over with the audience, his brief pairing with Hornswoggle, how WWE failed to capitalize off his heel turn in late 2013, starring in "No One Lives" from WWE Studios, his time in TNA and his current partnership with Ethan Carter III. Also, would he ever consider doing commentary when his in-ring career is over?
In the final portion of the show, GSM gives his quick rundown of all the latest happenings in the world of wrestling, including Dolph Ziggler's current contract status, Monday's Raw, the return of Brock Lesnar (and his impact on WWE programming), the releases of Gunner and Samuel Shaw from TNA, Slammiversary thoughts, Austin Aries' potentially leaving soon, and more!
