Ep. 269: Wrestling 101

Sharpen your pencils, take notes because there will be a test after this  brand new episode of Tights and Fights! As part of the Max Fun Block Party, we’re proud to present our Wrestling 101 special! This is the episode to help everyone who’s been cautiously interested in wrestling to finally learn what all the fuss is about.

Ep. 268: Wrestling is Women's Work

Check your draft card, it’s a brand new episode of Tights and Fights! There’s going to be plenty of new faces on RAW and SmackDown. The women’s champions are now on each others’ brands which we imagine will make for some fun hijinks in the future. Plus there are some NXT call ups that we’re really excited about. And speaking of NXT 2.0… we’re sorry to report that it’s really not good. There’s some bright spots, but there’s also a bunch of really questionable characters and creative decisions that we’re afraid just aren’t working (and it doesn’t all have to do with those lights). Where do we go from here? Unfortunately to Crown Jewel (and no, we’re still not going to talk about. Looks like a good card though). Main Event AEW is officially two years old. It was founded on the promise of “ [AEW is for Everyone] (https://www.washingtonpost.com/goingoutguide/upstart-aew-is-taking-wwe-head-on--with-a-focus-on-diversity-and-inclusion/2019/09/25/304d0204-d958-11e9-ac63-3016711543fe_story.html) .” We’ve banged on about how they’ve failed to live up to that promise and will go into detail here. But there’s also something new in the air where we may have found a lot more to focus on and enjoy as we entire Dynamite’s third year.  The Three Count Danielle put over [Amanda Huber showcasing her son’s wrestling future] (https://twitter.com/MandaLHuber/status/1446211784302551043?s=20) . Lindsey put over [the G1 Climax] (https://itrwrestling.com/news/2021-g1-climax-participants-and-blocks-revealed/) . Hal put over [Dolph Ziggler’s long memory] (https://youtu.be/mnR745RGFK4) .

Ep. 267: Air Frying Tater Tots

After a week off from wrestling we’ve got a lot to catch up on a brand new Tights and Fights!  Bryan Danielson is already a force to be reckoned with on AEW! He took on Kenny Omega in a match that was so good that we almost feel bad for picking at the minor nits that bothered us. But with the good of AEW, there’s also some really bizarre things going on with their promos. Arn Anderson bragging about his glock? MJF recycling the “You’re tempted to be a drunk” story with Darby Allin? Really weird! Plus, we’re gonna talk all about WWE’s Extreme Rules show. The Demon’s been a bit of a mixed bag ever since Finn Balor brought it to the main roster, but we’ll explain why we were in favor of its appearance on Sunday… with one exception.  Also: Sasha’s back! Again! Let’s make some tater tots! Main Event We're three weeks into the NXT 2.0 experiment. We've talked about the colors, the lighting and some of the new faces. And now we're going to talk about where we think this brand is headed going forward.  Hosted by [Danielle Radford] (http://twitter.com/danielleradford) and [Lindsey Kelk] (https://twitter.com/LindseyKelk) Produced by [Julian Burrell] (https://twitter.com/Julian_Burrell) for [Maximum Fun] (http://maximumfun.org) .

What else can you say without shedding a tear? And speaking of shedding tears, while we didn’t love everything about NXT 2.0 (what was up with that lighting?), the InDex wedding was truly a wonderful sight. Best wrestling wedding ever? All of that plus, how the AEW women’s division actually outdid Smackdown in total women’s matches and why Hal has a special prayer for Finn Balor.

To get 20% off your first order of plant-based protein go to [Soylent.com/Tights] (http://soylent.com/tights) ! All Out was the biggest AEW PPV to date. Some are even calling it the greatest wrestling PPV they’ve ever seen! There were a ton of matches, but what really got everyone’s attention was the debuts. Adam Cole and Bryan Danielson have officially jumped into Tony Khan’s toy chest as has Ruby Soho. What does this mean for all of the potential match-ups on the table? Plus, we’ve gotta give props to MJF for being the realest heel in the company. But that said, has his feud with Chris Jericho stagnated? Main Event Twitter has always been one of the worst places to discuss anything, and wrestling is no different. But now with AEW on the rise and NXT in a state of transition, the tribalism is at an all time high and the quality of discourse is in absolute shambles. What’s behind this? And what’s the solution?

NWA held a major PPV this past weekend made up entirely of women’s matches! There were tons of great encounters to enjoy and one legendary retirement. But where does the idea go from here? AEW’s All Out PPV is nearly here! Tony Khan decided to finally let the women have another match on the main card. How long will that match last? Believe it or not, we’re taking the over. And while we’re not really excited for yet another Jericho vs. MJF match, we’ve got to admit that they’re damn good at selling it. All of that plus the possibility of Naomi in the Bloodline, that wild Charlotte vs. Nia Jax match and where Finn Balor fits into the landscape of Smackdown The Three Count: Lindsey put over theNWA Empowerrr Cup Hal put over [Happy Corbin] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2tuTM5WCHY&t=167s) .

CM Punk, Becky Lynch and Brock Lesnar all returned to wrestling within 24 hours of each other. And while we love seeing people cheer and shed some real tears over their heroes returning, these returns did come with their own unique concerns. We’ll discuss! Plus, while not everything was perfect at SummerSlam (we’re looking squarely at the Smackdown women’s title), it was still a really strong show with some great matches and even a vampire! But there was one match that stood head and shoulders above the rest and cemented itself as a bonafide contender for Match of the Year: WALTER vs. Ilja Dragunov from NXT TakeOver 36.  The Three Count: Danielle put over  [Nikki Bella's reaction to SummerSlam] (https://twitter.com/jessithebuckeye/status/1429557308875583496?s=20) .

But let’s also give some to Paris Is Bumping, an undeniably queer show with a lot to love. Plus, with TakeOver 36 coming on Sunday, has NXT lost a little bit of its luster in the last few months? All of that plus some rampant speculation about a certain Punk from Chicago. Main Event: Christian’s One More Match. In honor Christian’s big win from the premier of Dynamite, we’re taking a look at one of the biggest stories of his career: The journey from sentimental fan favorite to whining cheating heel that today is known as “One More Match.” The Three Count: Danielle and Lindsey put over [Indi Hartwell’s proposal] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWWEB3-YmLA) .

It’s the premier of their Friday night show “Rampage!” And while “Dynamite” was once again a disappointment as far as women’s wrestling goes, “Rampage” is going to have Britt Baker vs. Red Velvet as the main event on night one. We can only hope it’s the beginning of a trend. And while we’ve got tons of other wrestling to get to on RAW and NXT, we’ve gotta give a shoutout to John Cena for his work in The Suicide Squad. Main Event: NXT as it was and will be Triple H's brain child NXT rose from the ashes of FCW and a really crappy reality show to become the new face of WWE's developmental brand in 2012. But along the way it became a great show that introduced major stars from around the world to the company and became a draw in its own right. And now that it looks like Vince and co. are looking to shake up the direction of the brand, we're going to take a look back on the last decade of NXT.

It’s a brand new Tights and Fights! Despite some sketpicism of her new gimmick, Almost a Superhero, Nikki ASH won the big one. After a lot of back and forth, Nikki is the new RAW women’s champion after cashing in the Money in the Bank. Are we ready to get on board with her new role? Speaking of women’s titles, Britt Baker once again retained her AEW women’s title. But that sort of just underscores the  nagging issue with AEW: they don’t seem to have much of a long term story planned for their women’s division. And so it goes. Oh yeah and some guy named John Cena is back! Despite ourselves we can’t help but be excited about… even though some other returns didn’t go nearly as well… especially the spooky ones. Main Event: Big E We’ve seen Big E grow from the second ever NXT Champion to one third of one of the greatest WWE tag teams of all time. And now that he’s got a date with the World championship one day soon, we can’t wait to see where he goes next. We’ll share what makes Big E so great and read some of your thoughts on Mr. Money in the Bank.  The Three Count: Danielle put over [the trial of Faye Jackson] (https://www.fightful.com/wrestling/trial-faye-jackson-brings-out-wrestling-stars-trends-1-twitter) [.] (https://www.thegamer.com/xavier-woods-ember-moon-wwe-stars-dnd-live-2021/) Lindsey put over [Becky’s breast feeding tweet.] (https://twitter.com/BeckyLynchWWE/status/1417289658480922625?s=20) Hal put over [Pat McAfee on commentary] (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxcTeAKWJca6XyJ37_ZoKIQ) .

Ep. 256: Come on and Jam

For better or worse (but probably for worse), wrestling is about to get much more crowded than it’s been for over a year. We’ve already seen it in All Elite Wrestling. Their crowds reached an absolute fever pitch this past week at Fyter Fest night 1. We saw a bunch of great matches like Darby Allin vs. Ethan Page and fun moments like Adam Page finally confronting his pals in the Elite. And yet despite all that… There was still One Match from the women’s division. Thankfully there were more women on NXT and Smackdown with multiple stars making their debut on new brands. Main Event: The return of crowds From a purely entertainment standpoint, we definitely missed an audience with our wrestling. And now that they’re coming back, we’re naturally excited and concerned. Let’s take this opportunity to look back on our favorite wrestling moments that we were in the audience for… and try to stave off our fear that everything could go very wrong.  The Three Count: Danielle put over [WWE wrestlers playing DnD.] (https://www.thegamer.com/xavier-woods-ember-moon-wwe-stars-dnd-live-2021/) Lindsey put over [Aliyah heading to Smackdown] (https://twitter.com/ryansatin/status/1411436887655346178?s=20https://heelbynature.com/wrestling-news/wwe-news/report-raw-traded-mandy-rose-to-nxt-for-aliyah/) .

Ep. 255: RAW is Muppets

Wakka Wakka! It’s a brand new episode of Tights and Fights! Muppets expert and host of the “Kermitment” podcast Matthew Gaydos joins us to break down all the biggest news in wrestling. He initially treated WWE’s empty arena shows as a way to get back into all the wrestling content he’d fallen out of. But that awkward silence was too much to bear for a weekly TV show. Now, he’s come back strong to watch a bunch of the weeks shows. We got the Great American Bash with wish-fulfilment for the shippers and Kyle O’Reilly’s questionable ring gear. Plus AEW with some fun JR gaffs and even less women’s wrestling than usual. Main Event: The Muppets as RAW’s guest hosts The Muppets are the greatest RAW celebrity guest hosts of ALL TIME. It might be a bold statement, but you’ll understand when we break down the 2011 episode of RAW where Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie and the whole gang interacted with out merry band of wrestlers The Three Count: Lindsey put over [Danhaussen taking over Renee Paquette's podcast] (https://www.audacy.com/podcasts/oral-sessions-with-renee-paquette-46458) .

Ep. 254: The Pipe Bomb’s 10th anniversary

Do we have everybody’s attention now? It’s a brand new episode of Tights and Fights! Before we can even get into wrestling, Danielle can’t wait to tell you more about the brand new film F9 starring the one and only John Cena! Did he turn F9 into an FU? There’s only one way to find out! Plus there’s a lot to get into from AEW and NXT: How’s about the Young Bucks new facial hair? Like, we can all agree mutton chops are a universal heel move, right? And now that Isaiah “Swerve” Scott has brought gold Hit Row, does this mean Bronson Reed is set to move on to RAW or Smackdown? If that is the case, we’ll tell you why that’s not as much a cause for concern as you might think. Plus we’ve gotta talk about Karrion Kross’ weird pleather blazer. We just HAVE to. Main Event: The Pipe Bomb’s 10th anniversary It’s widely considered one of the greatest promos of all time: CM Punk’s Pipe Bomb in Las Vegas. He sat, he scolded us with his truth and set the wrestling world aflame as few moments ever have. What’s the legacy of the promo ten years later? How does it hold up now that we have the full context of Punk’s entire WWE career?

Ep. 253: McIntyred of empty arenas

Talk less, Claymore, cuz we’re a three man baaaaaaaaand on Tights and Fights! We had what ended up being a weeklong journey through hell and back. After four hell in a cell matches across multiple nights of wrestling, what stood out? Did Bianca Belair once again overshadow the pack in her match with Bayley or did things like Xavier Woods’ first world title match and Roman’s “Happy Father’s Day” make enough of an impression? Main Event: Drew McIntyre Drew McIntyre's title reign was the culmination of a decades long journey. And yet his time at the top came under probably the worst circumstances that any champion has had to endure. So we're going to look back on his career so far now that it looks like his time in the main event is over (for now).

JOE! JOE! JOE! JOE! It's a brand new episode of Tights and Fights! We’ve got just a few days to relax between WWE PPV weekends. NXT TakeOver: In Your House was a fina show by most counts, but it didn’t reach the lofty heights that we know TakeOvers can. What do we attribute that to? Plus, WWE decided to really throw us off and have a Hell in a Cell match on Smackdown instead of this Sunday? Does this mean Roman will gain custody of Dominik? Or will Rey Mysterio finally get a chance at a great match in this latter day career run? Main Event: Samoa Joe In honor of his (thankfully, not long awaited) return, we’re going to talk all about Samoa Joe. He’s had some great highs both before and after his WWE career, included brilliant matches and being one of the best promos in the game. Where will he go from here?

Ep. 251: All Regal-ite Wrestling

Straighten up your tie and remember you were born naughty, it’s a brand new episode of Tights and Fights! Mat Ricardo is a variety performer based in England. It’s a career that requires a whole ton of entertaining crowds! So yeah you could say he understands a little bit of what wrestlers went through this year. But he’s got plenty of opinions on the most notorious WWE segment of the week: Shayna Baszler having it out with Alexa Bliss’ doll Lilly. Plus, it’s been three hours so it’s time for another WWE PPV. This time it’s NXT TakeOver: In Your House 2021. It looks like an intriguing card on paper, but we’re here to answer the most important question on our mind: Who’s the heel in the Karrion Grimes/ LA Knight program. Ring Tones: William Regal William Regal is one of the most respected wrestlers in WWE. He’s had a lengthy career that included a pompous englishman to a serious GM to a real man’s man. Plus, he’s had new music to accompany most of these character changes.   The Three Count: Mat put over [William Regal’s promo against Antonio Cesaro] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4zmenHmjxk) .

Ep. 250: The WWE Films situation w/ Daron Jackson

The news has been insane this week, so let’s get some first hand information on at least some of it on a brand new Tights and Fights! Daron Jackson is a production attorney for WWE Films. Or at least he was up until a few days ago. Yup, not even the film production branch of the company is immune to the sweeping layoffs that Vince McMahon has inflicted upon the WWE. But even though his division was getting downsized, Daron was already on his way out of the company. He’ll tell us about what it was like getting those emails from Vince and shoutout to some of the talented people he worked with. Plus, we should also talk about some wrestling right? This past weekend was the 2021 edition of AEW’s Double or Nothing PPV.

Ep. 249: Surrender the Sword

We had a break and a breather and back with a NEWWWWW Tights and Fights! What better way to bring us back than Hal geeking out about the love that the 76ers got from all the wrestlers this past week? But that’s not the only NBA crossover into wrestling: Basketball booted AEW from it’s regular time slot! Plus we’ll discuss what appears to be Kofi Kingston’s return to the main event title picture, Big E beginning his feud with Aleister Black and the very first title win of Tamina’s career. Main Event Booker T recently got a career documentary on the A&E Network. Conspicuously absent was one of the biggest matches of his career: against Triple H for the World Championship at WrestleMania 19. The feud is mainly known for how truly racist the language was on the build to the event. How bad was it? Could it have been saved?

Ep. 248: We’re live pal!

In celebration of the Max Fun Drive, we recorded an episode LIVE for our Facebook group.  We asked you all for Main Event ideas for our regular episodes, but got so many suggestions that we couldn’t help but give them all some love. You’ll hear us discuss important things like why the rise of Orange Cassidy has worked so well and the value of managers in wrestling. Plus we’ll talk about some silly things like Lindsey’s cats and the worst rules for a flag match ever.  Hosted by [Hal Lublin] (http://twitter.com/HalLublin) and [Lindsey Kelk] (http://twitter.com/lindseykelk) Produced by [Julian Burrell] (https://twitter.com/Julian_Burrell) for [Maximum Fun] (http://maximumfun.org) .

Ep. 247: You can always come home

It’s the Max Fun Drive finale! Let’s celebrate with a brand newwwww Tights and Fights! If you’d like to support this show, go to Maximumfun.org/join. You can become a member for as little as $5 a month and earn great gifts in the process, including tons of bonus episodes of Tights and Fights! We’ve got a full PPV coming up this Sunday! Will Cesaro finally have his moment in the sun against Roman Reigns? Signs point to no, but let’s dare to dream. AEW seems like they finally have their star of the women’s division with Britt Baker, but why do they seem intent on not showcasing the totality of the women on their roster?  All of that plus, that bizarre Cody Rhodes promo about national pride, why we don’t want Rhea to drop that title and one of the most sexually charged promos in recent memory.  The Main Event Everyone loves a good comeback story in wrestling. Absence always makes the heart grow fonder and seeing an old favorite back in the ring is always special. What are some of our favorites from over the years? And who’s around today that we would undeniably pop for if they ever made their triumphant return to the ring? Thanks to listener Harry for suggesting this topic in our facebook group! The Three Count: Lindsey put over [The Dark Side of the Ring documentary featuring Nick Gage] (https://www.vicetv.com/en_us/video/the-ultra-violence-of-nick-gage/6078b5f5d540ac37105224b1) Julian put over [Mustafa Ali and Ricochet's new feud on Main Event.] (https://twitter.com/AliWWE/status/1389291837547024386?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1389291837547024386%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_c10&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fdailyddt.com%2F2021%2F05%2F09%2Fwwe-mustafa-ali-vs-ricochet-feud-needs-raw%2F) Hal put over undeniable proof that the Dark Order is a Muppets faction.
