    WrestleRant Radio - June 23, 2022: Joe Gacy Interview, Lesnar Returns, McMahon Scandal, Forbidden Door Predictions & More!

    This week's WrestleRant Radio opens with Graham "GSM" Matthews' exclusive interview with WWE NXT star Joe Gacy! They talk him challenging Bron Breakker for the NXT Championship at NXT In Your House 2022 and their feud, his transformation from when he signed with WWE to who he's become, biggest influences on his character and in-ring style, getting "cancelled" in late 2021, and more.

    GSM and RJ Marceau then talk the Vince McMahon controversy and the fallout thus far, if McMahon is truly in jeopardy of stepping down as WWE's C.E.O. and Chairman for good, and his recent pointless appearances on Raw and SmackDown. They're also discussing Brock Lesnar returning on SmackDown to challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at SummerSlam and how the title picture could and should be booked through WrestleMania 39, if we'll see Theory confront John Cena next Monday night on Raw, Rhea Ripley getting injured and Carmella taking her place against Raw Women's Champion Bianca Belair at Money in the Bank, the return of Elias, what's next for Becky Lynch, and FULL PREDICTIONS for Sunday's AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door pay-per-view event!

    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.

One of the very best shows!

GSM is the man. In a time where we literally have any option for a wrestling podcast, Graham gives a refreshing narrative from a true wrestling fan that sets him apart from any other show. He’s a fantastic interviewer and an even better dude. I love Wrestlerant.
