This week, Hal, Danielle and Mike are joined by Jamie Loftus! She's a comedian and the creator and star of Irrational Fears on Comedy Central.

She joins the Nation of Conversation to discuss our favorite news from the week in wrestling including the announcement of WWE Evolution, the first ever all-women PPV that the company has ever put on. But even though we're excited about this show and hope that it's as good as it could be, this is yet another example of WWE patting themselves on the back for removing barriers that they established.

And Roman Reigns is officially the number one contender for Brock Lesnar's Universal Championship. What hope is there that it will be better received than the WrestleMania match? And is this guaranteed to end with a Money in the Bank cash-in to send the Brooklyn crowd home happy?

All of this, plus why Smackdown was a very strong show this week and we'll heap praise upon Impact Wrestling for their recent influx in talent and last weekend's Slammiversary PPV.

Ring Tones

He's been known as The Giant, The World's Largest Athlete, Paul Wight and The Big Show. He's had a 20+ year career that's included being a grand slam champion and Jamie Loftus's favorite wrestler! She'll talk all about her fandom for him as the team takes a journey through his entrance music over the years.

When Danielle is away, the heels will play!

Mike and Danielle have the booth all to themselves this week and they have plenty of things they need to talk about. That includes, perhaps most significantly, the return of Hulk Hogan to the WWE Hall of Fame. Wrestlers like the New Day, Titus O'Neil and Mark Henry have voiced their opinion about and Mike is happy to speak his truth Then, Now and Forever.

Plus, the two will break down Extreme Rules and all of the subsequent fallout from the event. That includes the audience in Pittsburgh that decided that instead of paying attention to Seth Rollins and Dolph Ziggler's Iron Man match, they were going to countdown the end of every minute, Royal Rumble style. Thus Hal has no choice but to take them to task.

The Three Count

Mike wants to The New Day's response to Hulk Hogan returning.

Hal wants to put over the recent episode of Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard about Muhammad Hassan.

Hosted by Hal Lublin and Mike Eagle.

This week, author and comic book writer BJ Mendelson joins the Nation of Conversation! He’s got tons of thoughts on everything that happened in wrestling this week, from the pull-apart brawl between Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley to the continued reunion between Daniel Bryan and Kane as Team Hell No.

Plus, a closer look at the next phase of Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa’s feud in NXT, who BJ thinks may be better than Paul Heyman on the mic and Danielle explains to the team what the Aztec Medallions of Lucha Underground are.

The Main Event

A few weeks ago, WWE promoted a special encounter between the New Day and New Japan’s The Elite. Sure it was a Street Fighter V competition at E3, but afterward, Triple H said that the company is open to a cross-promotional show with New Japan. But how likely is such a meeting to REALLY happen? And what would we like to see go down at this hypothetical event?

The Three Count

BJ put over Fantasy Super Cosplay Wrestling.

Danielle put over Episode 8 of Season 2 of GLOW.

Mike put over Robbie E’s podcast Why it Ended.

Hal put over the recent segment on Smackdown that featured Rusev on commentary.

What a week of wrestling it’s been!

And not just because of WWE; we’re still basking in the afterglow of New Japan Dominion and Kenny Omega finally capturing the IWGP World Heavyweight. But Kenny’s big month wasn’t done there; he traveled to Los Angeles with the Young Bucks to take on the New Day in Street Fighter at E3! And our own Mike Eagle was there live to watch the whole thing happen. He’ll tell us all about and explain what he did with the Pancake he caught from Xavier Woods at the event.

NXT TakeOver: Chicago II

Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano’s feud of the year continues, Aleister Black and the NXT Title once again are left out of the main event spot, Undisputed Era had a really fun bout with One Lorcan and Danny Burch, and Shayna Baszler gave Nikki Cross the collapse into unconsciousness that she longed for.

We’re running down everything… including Velveteen Dream’s gear choice in his match against Ricochet.

Money In The Bank

In the last week, we’ve crowned new champions in Alexa Bliss and Dolph Ziggler and have a new Monster in the Bank in Braun Strowman.

Which stars are in the best position to be successful as we enter the second half of the year? Is Shinsuke Nakamura worse off for not having captured the WWE Championship? And what do we think of the sudden and unceremonious firing of Big Cass?

It’s a brand new week in wrestling as Money in the Bank is finally on the horizon!

The stage is set for those who will compete in the ladder matches on June 17th, but who’s in the best position to get that golden ticket for the world title match? And has WWE been building this up the contest for all of the entrants in the right way?

Plus, NXT red-hot angle between Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa has continued to pick up steam, and has now incorporated Candice LeRae, Gargano’s real-life wife. But she’s someone who’s known around the country for standing on her own; shouldn’t she be plowing her own path rather than just following in her man’s story?

All of this, plus a look whether or not the Universal Title is relevant, the B-Team barbecue vs. Naomi and Lana’s dance-off and Julian stan’s for the cruiserweight championship match between Cedric Alexander and Buddy Murphy.

Britney Young from GLOW

The Netflix series GLOW returns on June 29th! Lindsey Kelk sat down with Britney Young who stars in the show as Carmen Wade aka Machu Picchu. Young tells us all about what it was like to make the show in a post-#MeToo world, why she loves Lucha Underground and what it was like to get in the ring with Kia Stevens.

Britney can be found on Twitter and Instagram.

Simon Grimm is ready to join the Nation of Conversation!

Grimm formerly wrestled for WWE under the name Simon Gotch. There he was a member of the NXT Tag-team champion Vaudvillains. From there, he made his way to the Smackdown live main roster along with his partner, Aiden English.

Then he was let go by the WWE, a decision he says he couldn’t be happier about. Why? Because the independent wrestling scene is thriving. And Grimm sees tons of talented wrestlers that he can’t wait to work with.

Grimm will tell Hal, Mike and Danielle all about what it’s like to transition to the indies after being in the WWE, why he doesn’t believe in giving advice to wrestlers and he’ll even discuss what he thinks about that, "Bobby Lashley’s sisters" segment that was on Monday Night RAW this week.

Tights and Fights Ep. 90: WWE Backlash and Suddenly Dinosaurs

Guests: 
Hal Lublin, Mike Eagle & Lindsey Kelk

It seems like everyone’s got opinions on Sunday’s WWE show Backlash.

Audiences in attendance walked out on the main event of Samoa Joe vs. Roman Reigns. But was the match really all that bad? Or has WWE just put Roman in such a poor position after WrestleMania that this level of disconnect between the product and the fans is understandable?

Contributing to the disappointment in the show was that the WWE championship match between Shinsuke Nakamura and AJ Styles did not close out the evening. Is this feud still working after two matches ending in non-finishes? And who should come away with the WWE title at this point?

Plus, we look at the upcoming fourth installment in the much-loved Kenny Omega and Kazuchika Okada series. After a respective record 1-1-1, is it time for Kenny to finally get that IWGP title? And with Chris Jericho officially setting his sights on New Japan’s Intercontinental Title, there’s a lot to keep an eye on in the land of the rising sun.

All of this and a look at the latest in NXT, 205 Live and the… unusual entrance of Mandy Rose.

As always Hal, Danielle and Lindsey breakdown the latest in the world of wrestling. And this week that includes Greatest Royal Rumble live from Saudi Arabia.

Everyone on the panel has seen at least a little of the event, but was the show and the payday worth preventing the entire women’s roster from performing at the show?

Greatest Royal Rumble was also the precursor to this Sunday’s BackLash event. With Roman Reigns losing once again, how much have they damaged his presentation and the perception of the Universal Title?

And with Shinsuke Nakamura set for what could be his final match for the WWE title against AJ Styles, does he need to win that strap to cement his positioning as the top heel on Smackdown?

All this plus a look at which feuds could go on forever, why WWE needs women’s tag team titles and who the uncrowned king of 205 Live is.
