Default Overheating 07' Grand Cherokee

Had to replace water pump because it was leaking, suggested I go ahead and replace older water pump.
Jeep was not over heating prior to replacing water pump. Started jeep tested for about 30 minutes with no issues, no leak. Then I started to drive around. Temp gauge jumped through the roof. Indicator said Transmission temp was too high. Do I need to replace the thermostat? or anyone have any suggestions?
