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.

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.

WWE's made tournaments a regular part of their network. There's been one based on the Cruiserweights, the United Kingdom, tag teams and more. 

But the Mae Young Classic isn't just a way to continue that idea; it's WWE's most prolific showcase of women's wrestling yet.

Our two-lady team is ready to sit down together and digest everything they enjoyed from the tournament, what could have been done better and why this should be the first WWE tournament to come back for a repeat performance.

Hal and Danielle are going to break down some of the biggest points of contention as we move towards the WWE’s biggest event of the year.

Then, Mike Eagle joins the show to discuss one of the under-discussed points of professional wrestling: The fashion.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle

The Three Count:

Danielle put over Rusev’s impression of Dusty Rhodes on the Talk is Jericho podcast.

Mike (and Julian) put over The Usos’ promo on Smackdown.

Wow, a bunch of things happened on WWE TV this week!

There have been THREE Champions crowned since Sunday: Bray Wyatt finally captured the WWE Championship at Elimination Chamber; Naomi beat Alexa Bliss for the Smackdown Women’s Championship, and Bayley defeated Charlotte for the RAW Women’s Championship.

Which one are we most excited for? We’ll explain.

And was Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens’ Festival of Friendship the best RAW segment ever? Right now it’s kind of hard to think otherwise. We’ll gush about it and speculate about what could come next.

Plus, in a new segment, Danielle breaks down the past and present of misogyny and misandry in wrestling.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over Bella Brains on YouTube.

Mike put over The return of Gillberg.

Hal put over Alexa Bliss’ continued promo perfection on Talking Smack.

Even in a quiet week of wrestling, the WWE machine keeps on moving.

Samoa Joe made his big debut against a Samoan Joe (who you may know better as Roman Reigns). We’ll talk about what we thought of Joe’s first RAW main event.

Plus, Smackdown’s got a Pay Per View this Sunday: Elimination Chamber. This year’s participants are AJ Styles, The Miz, John Cena, Bray Wyatt and Baron Corbin and Dean Ambrose. Who’s looking strong? And who should win the WWE Title to take on Randy Orton at Wrestlemania?

My Special Wrestler:

Jarrett Williams is the comics artist behind the Super Pro KO series. He’s here to tell you about one of the most loved… and hated superstars in WWE history: Triple H.

Williams just released the third installment in the Super Pro KO series. It’s entitled Gold for Glory.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over Sami Zayn’s recent article using his work to erase the stigma on Muslims AND the new WWE Champions mobile game.

Mike put over The Rock and Roll express being put in the WWE Hall of Fame.

Hal put over Tye Dillinger’s recent promo after entering into the Royal Rumble.

For the last two years, the Royal Rumble has been a controversial affair. The previous winners have led to many accusations that the WWE doesn’t understand its audience anymore. Was this year any different? Well… kinda.

We’re breaking down everything we cared about from the Rumble… including what was probably the biggest troll job the company has ever done: Roman Reigns at Number 30.

Plus, a Big Four Pay Per View on Sunday means that we also get a new NXT TakeOver on Saturday. And while there was noticeably less stay power on this week’s show than usual, most people on the card raised their stock on the developmental brand.

We’ll break down all the biggest happenings from both shows, including the debut of Samoa Joe… and the injury of Seth Rollins.

The Royal Rumble is when the road to Wrestlemania really starts to heat up.

And it also happens to be Hal’s favorite pay per view.

The Nation of Conversation will reminisce about some of their favorite Rumble winners and moments throughout the years. And they’ll decide if the fact that so few of them have had success at Wrestlemania is hurting the idea of the show.

Plus, from the World title to the Universal title, the feuds for Sunday’s show are really getting good. And why was there only 1 women’s match on WWE TV this week? All this and a lot more on this week’s show.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle

The Three Count:

Danielle put over New Day renewing the memes of black twitter..

Mike put over Chris Jericho’s recent podcast with Perry Saturn..

Hal put over Baron Corbin’s commentary on Smackdown..
