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.

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

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.

Tights and Fights Ep. 88: A Royal Rumble Without any Queens

With Daryl Takahashi looking on with love, Danielle and Lindsey take control of the show!

The two will break down the problems that have arisen with the Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia; it’s WWE’s second major live event to air this month on the Network… but it will not feature a single women’s match. How much is that undercutting WWE’s supposed “women’s evolution?” And is the company doing everything they could be to make sure women are being properly used on their programming to make up for this absence?

The Saudi Arabian show will be host to other matches, including Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship. But what is it about this match that’s not clicking, compared to the build for their WrestleMania match?

Plus, why Shinsuke Nakamura’s new music is so amazing, who we wish was getting a shot at the Cruiserweight Championship and why it may be time to give Impact Wrestling another shot after so long.
