He kicks off WrestleRant Radio discussing the Draft, what it means for Raw and SmackDown Live moving forward, and the possibility of WrestleRant Radio eventually switching days.

WWE returned to Madison Square Garden this past week for two jam-packed episodes of Raw and SmackDown Live, and Graham "GSM" Matthews was there live on Monday night to witness all the action in person! He speaks about his experience at the world's most famous arena (along with how he met Kofi Kingston, Big E and Mandy Rose at CitiField!) including the insane reaction "Stone Cold" Steve Austin received, the women's tag team match, Gran Metalik getting a chance to shine versus Rey Mysterio, Baron Corbin advancing in King of the Ring, the crowd doing the wave during the 10-man tag team main event, and Cedric Alexander's big win.

While giving his thoughts on SmackDown Live, GSM also discusses The Undertaker's pointless appearance, The Miz battling Andrade, Heavy Machinery getting back on track, Roman Reigns and Erick Rowan brawling, how Bayley's heel run has been confusing so far, the Kofi Kingston and Randy Orton rivalry going full circle in MSG, Chad Gable beating Shane McMahon and who he thinks will ultimately win King of the Ring, and Kushida's surprise 205 Live debut.

Fresh off his quick visit to Chicago, Graham "GSM" Matthews explains how his trip to Chi-Town came out and his experience meeting CM Punk at Starrcast before reviewing AEW All Out from Saturday night!

They kick off the hour by giving their picks for Saturday's TakeOver special and discussing Io Shirai's recent heel turn and how exceptional she's been in the role, if The Street Profits are on the verge of losing the NXT Tag Team Championship and if they'll officially be called up to Raw soon, if Mia Yim is the right woman to dethrone Shayna Baszler as NXT Women's Champion, the Triple Threat match for the NXT North American Championship, Adam Cole vs. Johnny Gargano III in the main event, and if every member of Undisputed Era will leave Toronto with gold.
