On this week's episode of Tights and Fights, the leaders of the Nation of Conversation take a look at whether 12+ hours of wrestling in one weekend means there's too much content for anyone to possibly consume... and whether they will any way.

Plus, TNA's got a new president: Billy Corgan (Yeah the Smashing Pumpkins guy). They'll break down what went wrong in the Impact Zone and how TNA can hook them again as wrestling viewers.

All that and a look at why people in the crowd think they can jump into the ring during a live event, the team's favorite Summerslam moments and whether or not WWE should be giving away PPV attractions on free TV.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle.

We don't do a lot of wrestling coverage here at MaximumFun.org, but this is genuinely fun stuff. Our friend Charlie Todd (the founder of Improv Everywhere) runs a comedy wrestling league at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York called UCBW. This week wrestling legend Mick Foley stopped by to do a little comedy, but then he got wrapped up in the grand finale. You can find further details at The Apiary and at Charlie's blog.
