Dakota Kai, Malcolm Bivens, Dexter Lumis, Persia Pirotta and others are the latest to be released from WWE NXT, and Graham "GSM" Matthews and RJ Marceau are breaking down each departure to open WrestleRant Radio. They also do a complete analysis of NXT 2.0 and the issues with the transition from the old guard to the new, why 90 days isn't enough to determine a newcomer's development, how the show could have benefited from a name change upon its relaunch, the one benefit of the brand's new management, Roderick Strong reportedly requesting his release, and much more. The duo then discuss Gunther's ceiling on SmackDown, what would need to happen in order for Madcap Moss to become a star, quick thoughts on Monday's Raw, who should win the men's and women's Owen Hart Cup in AEW, and full predictions for Sunday's WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view event!
