Ross and Carrie Visit the Underworld: Hellevator Edition

| 0 comments

Wow! You pushed us past 4,000 new/upgrading donors during MaxFunDrive, and you know what that means: at some point in the future, we'll be drinking our own pee. And you know what else it means: bonus episode! We give you this fun and silly experiment we pulled off at MaxFun headquarters, where we use an elevator to attempt to shoot straight to Hell. Will MaxFun staffers Kira and Danny get stuck in the underworld? Will Ross find the secret extra floor? Will Carrie have a heart attack? Are any of these people still alive? Find out!

Ross and Carrie Find Their Rythmia (Part 13): Last Shoe Edition

| 0 comments

On this, the final day of MaxFunDrive, we bring you our final thoughts about Rythmia. What happened after we got home? What have we learned about ayahuasca's risks since our return? What does Gerry's book contain? And how did Rythmia attempt to keep this series from happening? Plus, a very sad story illuminates how promises of a "miracle" can come at a high cost.

Tights and Fights Ep. 86: The NXT: TakeOver New Orleans and WrestleMania 34 Special

We’ve survived the biggest weekend of wrestling of the year!

Hal and Danielle are joined by Producer Julian Burrell to break down the biggest Ice Cream Christmas of all time.

The team will have a deep dive into a few of the biggest events from Lucha vs. Impact and Supercard of Honor in addition to what they consider the show of the weekend NXT TakeOver: New Orleans.

Saturday’s NXT event featured amazing matches from beginning to end, including what may go down to be one of the greatest wrestling matches in WWE history. We’ll try not to get too excited.

And the biggest show of the weekend was none other than WrestleMania. And while the team agrees that it was on the positive side of shows, there are a few issues that they had with it. That includes that the wrong match closed out the show and why Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar did nothing for either competitor or the live audience.

Plus, a look at the stars who got called up from NXT to the main roster, where NXT could be heading in the future and where this Mania ranks in the all-time history of the event.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford ,Julian Burrell

Produced by Jesus Ambrosio for Maximum Fun.

If you want to talk about more wrestling throughout the week be sure to join us on Facebook or @TightsFights on Twitter.
