Coming off a less-than-stellar episode of WWE Raw, Graham "GSM" Matthews and RJ Marceau are back on WrestleRant Radio with special guest Jay Alletto for nothing short of a stacked show! They break down the show in full in addition to giving their candid thoughts on the upcoming MSG special and the build to Big Show vs. Brock Lesnar on Saturday. The raging rivalry between Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns gets the trio talking and they predict when we could see the feud culminate.
Plus, stay tuned for more analysis of King Barrett's return to TV (and why no one cared), the NXT panel that aired after Raw, the Seth Rollins vs. Kane feud, the issues with the Divas division, SummerSlam returning to Brooklyn for the next two years, where GSM and RJ will be next Monday night, and much more!
At Sunday's Night of Champions pay-per-view, Chris Jericho made his surprising return to WWE, and now he debuts on WrestleRant Radio! Yes, you read that correctly! Graham "GSM" Matthews finally shares the audio of the interview he conducted with Y2J himself earlier this year (which can't be heard anywhere else) talking his latest DVD release, feuds with Shawn Michaels and Edge, working as a heel and babyface, and much more!
In the second half of the show, GSM dissects Night of Champions and gives his full thoughts on each matchup including why Kevin Owens was the best possible choice for Intercontinental Champion, the never-ending feud between Dolph Ziggler and Rusev, Charlotte capturing the Divas Championship and Paige's subsequent heel turn (and why it was so awesome), Chris Jericho's WWE return and what it might mean for his future, Seth Rollins' big next, and an injury update on Sting.
Plus, GSM gives his two cents on JBL's recent interview with Eric Bischoff on WWE Network!
It's Night of Champions week on WrestleRant Radio! Before breaking down the pay-per-view, Graham "GSM" Matthews and RJ Marceau along with special guest Seth Guttenplan get into the go-home edition of Raw from Monday night and the night's biggest highlights and low points. It was a historic night for the flagship show as Sting made his Raw in-ring debut, Charlotte challenged for the Divas Championship, and The New Day defended the WWE Tag Team Championship!
Should Seth Rollins have tapped out? Should Nikki Bella have broken the Divas title record? How hilarious was Triple H dancing to The New Day's entrance theme? All of that is discussed in the Raw review!
To close out WrestleRant Radio give their full picks and predictions for Sunday's Night of Champions pay-per-view including the recent booking of Neville, the Intercontinental Championship match and if it's a must-win for situation for Kevin Owens, Charlotte potentially ending Nikki Bella's title reign (for real this time), who Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns' mystery partner will be, if Seth Rollins is walking out of Houston with two titles or none, and much more!
WWE Raw may not have been anything special on Monday night, but there isn't a shortage of topics to talk about on this week's explosive WrestleRant Radio! Before breaking down the flagship show's "season premiere," hosts Graham "GSM" Matthews and RJ Marceau give their thoughts on the latest Stone Cold Podcast with Edge and Christian and where it ranks among past podcasts with Austin and Chris Jericho.
From there, they delve into and Monday Night Rollins (that's no typo) and discuss Sting stealing Seth's statue, Paige potentially turning heel, how Edge and Christian's quick cameo stole the show, the awesomeness of The New Day, Lana's injury being a blessing in disguise, Los Matadores getting repackaged (hopefully), pitching a Baron Corbin debut, and why Charlotte must turn heel. Plus, what the hell was up with that random fan appearance at the end of the show?! GSM and RJ analyze it all!
