What better way to celebrate the holiday season than with a whole bunch of wrestling!
Hal and Lindsey break down the two biggest WWE shows from last weekend. First, NXT TakeOver: War Games. It featured two very different versions of the signature match, each with their own surprises and takes on the concept. We’ll explain how each match was such a brilliant showcase for each of the competitors.
Plus, with most of the people on this show pulling double duty the next night, we’ll hope and pray that their bodies are holding up so that they can continue to be slammed into cages for years to come.
And speaking of Sunday’s show, Survivor Series was a great bell to bell event as well! We’ll break down each of the major matches, what little minor shortcomings we saw, and find out who likes and dislikes the new Intercontinental Championship
It’s the first ever Tights and Fights on SATURDAY!
Join us as we take a look at the most recent episode of AEW Dynamite. In addition to some of the matches like Nick Jackson vs. Fenix and the developing feuds like Luchasauras vs. Jake Hager, we’ll take a look at how AEW should help its talent get better.
Plus, while WWE definitely provides less freedom for talent to find themselves on their own, is it possible that their more strict regulations have actually helped some wrestlers find success in the long run? We’ll discuss.
All of that, plus why we can’t wait for Survivor Series to be here… so we don’t have to see anymore matching t shirts for a little while.
He was called the straight edge savior, the voice of the voiceless, the best in the world: CM Punk.
Now that he's officially back under the WWE umbrella, we're going to take a look at his wrestling career.
This week Hal and Danielle have a special announcement: Tights and Fights is officially moving to SATURDAYS!
In order to talk about NXT and AEW in a more timely manner, we’ll be moving our recording and publication days later in the week. Look forward to hearing us as part of your weekends!
Speaking of AEW, this past weekend was their PPV “Full Gear.” We’ve got a lot of opinions to share on including our thoughts on MJF’s actions at the end of the World Title match, whether or not we have an appetite for unsanctioned violent matches like the Jon Moxley/Kenny Omega match that closed out the show and Jim Ross’ family of shaving products.
Plus, CM Punk is officially affiliated with the WWE product once again! We’ll chat about his new role on FOX, what this could mean for his role in (if any) in WWE and how it feels to have him back in wrestling for the first time in years.
This week: WAR! Now that NXT is going head to head (to head) with RAW and Smackdown at Survivor Series, Hal, Danielle and Lindsey geek out about the first steps towards this new invasion. It’s already led to a lot of great matches like Tommaso Ciampa vs. Miz and Daniel Bryan vs. Adam Cole. That’s not even mentioning the promise of more at the PPV itself like Shayna Baszler vs. Becky Lynch vs. Bayley.
Plus: AEW Dynamite has made a lot of strides lately in improving its story segments across the last few weeks, but that doesn’t mean the show has completely delivered on its promise. We’ll give credit where credit is due and call out the shortcomings that we see as they prepare for their Full Gear PPV.
All that… and we’ve just gotta reminisce about the quality of Jim Ross’s podcast advertisements.
