WrestleRant Radio - July 21, 2022: Goldberg Talks One More Match, Wardlow, Showing Another Side to Himself & More!
Yet another WWE Hall of Famer is back on WrestleRant Radio this week, and it's none other than Goldberg! Graham "GSM" Matthews' exclusive chat with the multi-time world champion covers his episode of A&E's Biography: WWE Legends and showing a new side to himself, staying in shape and keeping busy, if he's content with closing his career the way he did against Roman Reigns, potential opponents he may want to face, thoughts on the Wardlow comparisons, and more! GSM and RJ Marceau then talk the WWE product reportedly returning to a TV-14 rating soon and why it won't make a difference before reviewing Raw from Monday night. Hear their thoughts on Titus O'Neil's bizarre promo to start the show, Bianca Belair vs. Becky Lynch for the Raw Women's Championship being made official for SummerSlam, the return of Kevin Owens, Rey Mysterio's best WWE matches ahead of his 20-year anniversary, AJ Styles being stuck in limbo, Alexa Bliss getting involved in the 24/7 Championship crap, and why Logan Paul being portrayed as a babyface will not work. During their full breakdown of Wednesday's Fyter Fest edition of AEW Dynamite, the duo discuss Brody King murdering Darby Allin, Jon Moxley's next AEW Interim World Championship challenger, Jungle Boy's return, the former Troy Donovan accepting Ricky Starks' FTW Championship open challenge, FTR's excellent promo, Eddie Kingston vs. Chris Jericho in an overbooked mess of a Barbed Wire Anywhere match, and FULL PREDICTIONS for Ring of Honor's Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view event!

WrestleRant Radio - June 16, 2022: Matt Cardona Interview, Jeff Hardy Arrested, Paige Leaving WWE & More!
After touching upon the latest breaking news concerning the Vince McMahon scandal and Sasha Banks reportedly receiving her release from WWE to open WrestleRant Radio, Graham "GSM" Matthews airs his exclusive interview with now-former NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Matt Cardona from before Alwayz Ready talking all about the event, his time in the NWA so far and winning the world title, enjoying his heel run right now and how it came about through GCW, how he defines success, his relationship with Vince McMahon and a text he received from him recently, the possibility of him returning to WWE and if his current character would work there, working for IMPACT, and more! GSM and RJ Marceau then discuss Jeff Hardy's sad situation regarding the AEW star getting arrested again, why there's no excuse for actions and needing immediate help, his status in AEW and if he'll be back, and if it'd be in his best interest to walk away from wrestling for good. They're also talking Paige announcing her upcoming departure from WWE and if she'll wrestle again elsewhere, updates on the fields for the men's and women's Money in the Bank Ladder matches, Roman Reigns defending the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Riddle on SmackDown, Gunther capturing the Intercontinental Championship, Giovanni Vinci's NXT debut, Cameron Grimes challenging Bron Breakker for the NXT Championship at The Great American Bash, and what to expect when Elias returns to Raw to join Ezekiel next Monday night.

WrestleRant Radio - June 9, 2022: Ezekiel Interview, WWE Hell in a Cell Review, Interim AEW World Title Update & More!
WWE Raw Superstar Ezekiel (you know, Elias' younger brother) is on WrestleRant Radio this week talking to Graham "GSM" Matthews about facing Kevin Owens at Hell in a Cell and their recent rivalry, his Raw run so far, Elias' whereabouts and the rest of his family tree, what he wants to accomplish in WWE, if he's aware of the rumors that he's also related to LA Knight/Max Dupri, and more! RJ Marceau then joins GSM to give their two cents on NXT's In Your House event and Apollo Crews' return to the brand on Tuesday night before getting into their full review of WWE's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view which was highlighted by a tremendous Triple Threat for the Raw Women's Championship, The Judgement Day taking on the trio of AJ Styles, Finn Balor and Liv Morgan, and an excellent Hell in a Cell clash between a wounded Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins. When will Rhodes return from injury and what does that mean for Rollins in the meantime? Will it involve the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship even though Roman Reigns reportedly won't be at Money in the Bank? GSM and RJ tackle those questions as well as if Liv Morgan is the best bet to win this year's women's Money in the Bank Ladder match, Rhea Ripley becoming the new number one contender to the Raw Women's Championship, Finn Balor replacing Edge as the leader of The Judgement Day and why it was a dumb idea, and John Cena returning to Raw later this month and who he could face at SummerSlam if he sticks around. Plus, hear their thoughts on the Interim AEW World Championship Eliminator Series and Wardlow's lame excuse for not taking part in it, if Jon Moxley is the right choice to win the interim title, the introduction of AEW's all-new All-Atlantic Championship and why it's not necessary, and MJF being persona non grata on Wednesday's Dynamite.

WrestleRant Radio - May 12, 2022: How Roman Reigns’ Upcoming Absence Creates a Disastrous Situation for WWE
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!

WrestleRant Radio - April 21, 2022: Raquel Rodriguez Interview, 20 Years of RKO, AEW/NJPW Supershow Announced & More!
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.

WrestleRant Radio - March 31, 2022: WrestleMania 38 Preview and Predictions! (ft. Tommy Bechtold)
It's the annual WrestleMania roundtable on WrestleRant Radio, and Graham "GSM" Matthews and RJ Marceau are bringing in the big guns! Joining them for their complete preview of WrestleMania 38 this weekend is New Rockstars' own Tommy Bechtold, and they waste no time in talking NXT Stand & Deliver on Saturday afternoon and other thoughts on the current WWE product. Nothing is off limits in their analysis of WrestleMania 38 Night 1 as the trio delve into Seth Rollins' mystery opponent and why it needs to be Cody Rhodes, Rhodes' ceiling for success in WWE and how his return should be presented, an uninspiring undercard featuring three matches that should be on SmackDown, Logan Paul's grand in-ring debut and how he could exceed expectations, if there's a chance Becky Lynch will retain the Raw Women's Championship against Bianca Belair, Charlotte Flair vs. Ronda Rousey for the SmackDown Women's Championship, and why "Stone Cold" Steve Austin's appearance on The KO Show should headline the event. GSM, RJ and Tommy then look at Night 2's card and share their two cents on who has the best chance of leaving with the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship, Bobby Lashley returning to face Omos and making a case for either outcome, how Sami Zayn vs. Johnny Knoxville and Austin Theory vs. Pat McAfee can both be attraction matches, if RK-Bro is on the verge of splitting up, AJ Styles vs. Edge, and who will reign supreme in the Championship Unification main event between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns!
