All-new SmackDown Superstar Raquel Rodriguez
joins Graham "GSM" Matthews to kick off this week's WrestleRant Radio to discuss being called up to the main roster and when she found out it was happening, who knew about it ahead of time, her journey over the last several years, eventually teaming with Rhea Ripley, having her name changed, and more!
GSM and RJ Marceau
then reflect back on the six-year anniversary of Samoa Joe winning the NXT Championship at an NXT house show they attended before getting into how Raw has been better lately (awful weddings notwithstanding), Theory winning the United States Championship and how far he can go, Randy Orton celebrating 20 years in WWE next month and what some of his best matches are, Rhea Ripley turning heel, Bianca Belair's upcoming opponents, and Cody Rhodes vs. Kevin Owens for the first time ever.
They also have plenty of thoughts on Kushida leaving NXT and if more releases are soon to follow, the debut of Roxanne Perez on Tuesday's show, why Sammy Guevara turning heel was the right move and why him regaining the AEW TNT Championship was the wrong one, AEW and New Japan Pro-Wrestling announcing their first-ever joint show for June and what the main event could be, CM Punk vs. Adam Page being primed for the Double or Nothing main event, why WWE being interested in FTR is hardly surprising, Jack Evans' AEW contract not being renewed, and what's next for Darby Allin and Andrade El Idolo following their Coffin match main event.
