After another whirlwind week in the world of wrestling, Graham "GSM" Matthews and RJ Marceau are analyzing it all on WrestleRant Radio, including the latest developments from the #SpeakingOut movement. Who was accused and what have been the ramifications from the various promotions so far? Will we see more suspensions, firings and resignations in the days and weeks to come? Will this hopefully bring the change to the business that it desperately needs?

In other "positive" (that isn't so positive) news, multiple WWE performers have confirmed that they have/had COVID-19, following reports that there could be many more in the company. GSM and RJ give their thoughts on how it was only inevitable and what it might mean for their upcoming tapings. They're also talking the cancellation of WWE Backstage on FS1, if CM Punk managed to rebuild a bridge with WWE since he joined, if The Undertaker is actually retired following the fifth and final chapter of The Last Ride and where the documentary ranks among the best WWE has ever done.

Plus, the duo discuss Dolph Ziggler challenging Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship at Extreme Rules, Asuka defending her Raw Women's Championship against Sasha Banks, more matches being rumored for the event, how long Charlotte Flair may be out for, who the next number one contender to the NXT Women's Championship will be, Adam Cole vs. Keith Lee in a Winner Take All match set for Night 2 of The Great American Bash on NXT, and full predictions for Night 1 of AEW Fyter Fest next week!

Is WWE's programming about to see a significant change in creative direction? Graham "GSM" Matthews and RJ Marceau discuss Bruce Prichard taking over for Paul Heyman as the head writer of Raw, if Raw improved under Heyman's leadership this past year, Prichard's track record writing SmackDown since the show's move to FOX, if having a Brand Split is for the better, and why nothing will truly change until Vince McMahon is out of power. They also get into what's next for Brock Lesnar in WWE and what money matches are left for him, WWE's lack of COVID-19 testing up until this point, their apparent "no mask" policy, Episode 4 of Undertaker: The Last Ride and if the upcoming series finale will feature him announcing his official retirement from the ring. If not, who would be a proper final opponent for him, and when?

GSM and RJ are also talking AJ Styles' rumored "heat" with Heyman and why he's better off back on SmackDown, thoughts on Styles' instant classic with Daniel Bryan for the Intercontinental Championship from last week, if Edge vs. Randy Orton lived up to the hype at Backlash, who Edge should feud with next, if the nonsense with The Street Profits and The Viking Raiders means the cinematic matches have jumped the shark in WWE, if The Miz and John Morrison splitting up is on the horizon, Bobby Lashley "divorcing" Lana and if his pursuit of the WWE Championship is over, Christian returning to the ring on Raw (kind of), Andrade and Angel Garza potentially teaming up, Dominik jumping Seth Rollins, who MVP could recruit next, and more!
