GSM is then joined by RJ Marceau as always to preview the premiere of Season 3 of Dark Side of the Ring and what episode they're looking forward to the most, Dario Cueto's return to wrestling in MLW, Daniel Bryan reportedly becoming a free agent following his fantastic championship clash with Roman Reigns on SmackDown and where he could end up, MLW's rumored working relationship with WWE, AEW's big Blood and Guts edition of Dynamite, thoughts on the main event and its polarizing ending, other major developments on the show including setup for Double or Nothing, Eva Marie returning to Raw along with the call-up of Mansoor, Charlotte Flair being added to the Raw Women's Championship match at WrestleMania Backlash, and quick thoughts on a strong show from NXT on Tuesday night headlined by a Street Fight for the NXT Women's Tag Team Championship.
The exclusive interviews keep coming on WrestleRant Radio as this week's episode welcomes the incomparable Phil "CM Punk" Brooks! The wrestler-turned-actor talks to Graham "GSM" Matthews about how his role in Jakob's Wife came about, if his wife AJ Lee watches his movies with him, memorizing lines for a long scene vs. cutting a wrestling promo, if he still watches wrestling and who he keeps in contact with, staying in shape, AJ's cooking, and more!

Joining Graham "GSM" Matthews on this week's WrestleRant Radio for an exclusive interview is none other than NWA Television champion Da Pope!

From there, RJ Marceau and GSM discuss last week's shocking releases and where they see each of them going, Pat McAfee joining the SmackDown commentary team, Raw being another abysmal show on Monday night, if T-Bar and Mace are damaged goods, Charlotte Flair's "suspension," if Ronda Rousey getting pregnant means she's officially done with wrestling, Riddle upsetting Randy Orton, thoughts on Wednesday's NXT including the debut of Sarray, AEW doing a great number last week and if they can consistently do over a million viewers each week, MJF's excellent promo, Blood and Guts taking up an entire episode of Dynamite in two weeks, Team Taz being booked like losers, AEW hardly hyping Kenny Omega's involvement in IMPACT's Rebellion pay-per-view this weekend, and if Daniel Bryan will leave WWE when his current contract expires.

The rest of the show features a complete breakdown of WrestleMania weekend from GSM and RJ Marceau with thoughts on NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver Night 2, the best and worst of both nights of WrestleMania, Bobby Lashley shockingly retaining the WWE Championship, how WWE can follow up on Cesaro's huge victory over Seth Rollins, Bianca Belair becoming the new SmackDown Women's Champion, why The Fiend losing to Randy Orton was incredibly stupid, the terrific Triple Threat main event for the Universal Championship, and quick thoughts on Monday's disappointing post-WrestleMania Raw and Wednesday's AEW Dynamite.
