It’s a tale of two WWE shows…

You’ve got Smackdown which has set up a lot of stars, including Jinder Mahal, The Singh Brothers and Breezango, for the spotlight that’s eluded them in their careers. But is that push coming too fast and too soon? We’ll take a look.

On the other hand, you’ve got RAW, which is treading water going into the first post-Wrestlemania Pay Per View “Payback.” But there were still a few things worth noting this week, including the much-hyped Dumpster Match between Kalisto and Braun Strowman.

My Special Wrestler

Chris Cubas is a stand-up comedian who had previously lapsed as a wrestling fan for a number of years. But who finally brought back the excitement for him? None other than the hardcore legend, Mick Foley.

Visit Chris online to find out about all of his ongoing projects.

The Superstar shake-up has led to some new developments that we all expected and ones that we absolutely couldn’t have seen coming.

Jinder Mahal has officially become the Number 1 contender for the WWE Title! He’s got the Bollywood Boyz as his new heaters and it looks like him and his veins are set for the big time. We’ll tell you how we feel about his major push.

Plus, Alexa Bliss and Charlotte have set their sights on their respective brand's major titles. Is it the right move to get them in the spotlight so soon? Probably! We’ll explain. 

Plus, more geeking out about Braun Strowman, a look at the U.S. Title competition and a lot more.

Fashion Corner

As WWE has tried to move away from the standard objectification of its female athletes, the fashion of the women has changed. But that doesn’t mean that the sexiness factor has been completely eliminated. Does WWE need to completely eliminate that if they want things to be on a truly equal level? We’ll take a look.

HOW SHOOK ARE YOU?!

Thanks to the Superstar Shake-up, let’s say very! 

So many wrestlers have switched shows, including guys who elevated themselves in the last year like The Miz, Kevin Owens, Alexa Bliss, Charlotte and more.

But was this the best thing to do, especially when the brand split is less than a year old? We’ll take a look.

Plus, Braun Strowman flipped over a freakin’ ambulance! With Roman Reigns (supposedly) inside! We’ll talk about that and explain why we’re going to miss Mauro Renallo so much on Smackdown.

As a thank you for making our first Max Fun Drive such a great success, we're happy to provide you with this special BONUS episode of Tights and Fights.

Julian Burrell, producer of the show, chats with Charlotte Wilder. She recently wrote an article for SB Nation detailing her experience of watching Wrestlemania as a complete wrestling outsider. She tells Julian all about which matches caught her eye, whether she'll keep watching wrestling... and how she feels about Roman Reigns.

Next, author Lindsey Kelk was at Wrestlemania in Orlando! Before the show got started, she spoke with some wrestlers from WWE's current roster and asked them some of YOUR Facebook questions! Those interviewed include Seth Rollins, Alex Bliss, Cesaro, Shaemus and more.

Wrestlemania is the longest, most exciting and most exhausting WWE event every single year. The 33rd edition of the show was no different.

In fact, between Mania, the Hall of Fame, RAW, Smackdown, TakeOver: Orlando and the pre and post-shows for those events, there were over 24 hours (!!!!!) of WWE content on TV in the past seven days.

New champions were crowned, new stars debuted, old stars retired, and a lot more.

It’s can all be overwhelming, but luckily the Nation of Conversation is here to break down all of the things that happened… or at least the stuff that we cared about.
