It’s our final full episode of the year, so let’s close it out in style!

Looking ahead to next year, WWE has confirmed that the first ever women’s Royal Rumble is set for the January PPV. How hopeful are we that WWE has learned its lesson from the last few women’s “firsts” that they decided to institute?

And at this weeks Clash of Champions event, AJ Styles retained his title over Jinder Mahal. Is this a sign that he’s going to be the top champion going into WrestleMania?

Plus, how devastating Dean Ambrose’s injury is for WWE storylines, The third RAW debut of the Revival, Dolph Ziggler’s US Title win, and a lot more.

Main Event

It’s our annual best of wrestling list! What was the most exciting part of 2017? Kenny Omega vs. Kazuchika Okada? Braun Strowman? The Mae Young Classic? We’ll break down all of this and so much more.

The Three Count:

Mike put over The tag team of Aiden English and Rusev at Clash of Champions.

Lindsey put over Kenny Omega attacking Chris Jericho at an NJPW press conference.

Danielle put over Eva Marie advocating for wrestling against Mia Khalifa.

Hosted by Danielle Radford, Mike Eagle and Lindsey Kelk

Jay Washington joins the team for the week to make the Tights and Fights triple threat a fatal fourway!

WWE’s rolling out a new Facebook exclusive show: The Mixed Match Challenge. It’ll run Tuesday nights with matches between mixed male and female tag teams. How likely are we to watch? We’ll tell you about it.

And how great does Samoa Joe look? He’s probably the first guy who’s become a threat to the Shield entirely on his own. But what’s his path going forward? Could it possibly include beating Roman Reigns for the Intercontinental Title?

And did Kevin Owens REALLY beat up Jay once?

All that plus what we think of Cedric Alexander, Chris Jericho attacking Kenny Omega, why Mike love Sonya Deville and why Kane vs. Braun Strowman is already losing some of its shine.

Main Event

It’s our annual worst of wrestling list! What was the most disappointing part of 2017? Bray Wyatt’s title reign and booking? Roman Reigns and Undertaker’s match at WrestleMania? The Women’s Money in the Bank storyline? We’ll revisit the painful memory for you.

Three (four) Count

Danielle put over Nia Jax being adorable

Mike put over the latest episode of Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard.

Jay put over Jason Jordan embracing his inner brat.

Hal put over the New Day on Commentary.

We’re officially just a few weeks away from Clash of Champions, the final Pay-per-view of the year! But why does Smackdown feel so directionless outside of a few feuds going into the event?

Maybe it has something to do with how much Shane McMahon has been inserting his influence into the Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn angle? Or maybe it’s because the tag team division hasn’t gotten another two teams hot yet for a big match?

But at least RAW has looked really good this week! Jason Jordan seems to finally be developing a character and Samoa Joe and Roman Reigns are on a collision course for the Intercontinental Title.

We’ll talk about all this plus The Bar retaining the RAW tag titles from the Shield, the differences between the Riott Squad and Absolution and more.

Gimmick Corner

When a wrestler named Husky Harris was sent back to NXT, he came up with a character named Bray Wyatt. He was a mysterious cult-like figure that seemed larger than life. But over the past few years, things haven’t gone as well as they could have with him. He’s taken losses, been in the worst WWE Title match in recent memory and lost much of his mystique. But could a pairing with Awoken Matt Hardy finally help right his ship? We’ll find out.

The Three Count

Danielle put over the RISE live show that she went to this week.

Lindsey put over the latest episode of Being The Elite.

Hal put over Drew Gulak's No Fly Zone.
