Graham "GSM" Matthews and RJ Marceau are giving their on-site report from WWE's WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view event in Providence on this week's WrestleRant Radio and talking how the event exceeded expectations, Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins delivering another instant classic, Omos avenging his loss to Bobby Lashley and what his ceiling is, Rhea Ripley joining The Judgement Day, Ronda Rousey winning the SmackDown Women's Championship and what Charlotte Flair's upcoming absence means for the SmackDown women's division, why Madcap Moss desperately needs a repackaging, The Bloodline battling Drew McIntyre and RK-Bro in the main event and if a tag team title unification match is still in the cards. Plus, what's Roman Reigns' status heading into the summer? The duo discuss the reports regarding his upcoming absence from WWE TV and what it means for the product, plans for Hell in a Cell, what should be done with the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, and if all of this is an indictment of WWE's inability to create new stars. They also have thoughts on Alexa Bliss' return to Raw, Lacey Evans being moved to the red brand's women's division and inexplicably turning heel already, why Asuka's comedy is awful, and Wednesday's AEW Dynamite featuring the quarterfinals of the men's and women's Owen Hart Cups, an insane Anything Goes match in the main event between Darby Allin and Jeff Hardy, and more!
