Episode notes

This week, Danielle and Lindsey are joined by Darnell Mitchell. He’s one of the heads behind the Brooklyn-based wrestling promotion Uncanny Attraction. Like any respectable wrestling organization, Uncanny Attraction will be in Tampa Bay on WrestleMania week (April 2nd at 11PM).

He’s also ready to announce the show’s main event: Effy vs. AEW’s Sunny Kiss! Tickets are going to be available soon!

Darnell will tell us all about what it was like to go from a fan to a professional in the industry, which independent wrestlers and promotions he’s most excited to see and why so many wrestlers need to step up their suit game.

The Main Event

Tessa Blanchard was known across the international wrestling scene as someone whose star was only going to burn brighter. She’s been a champion in multiple organizations, including the current World Champion of Impact. But in the midst of her greatest accomplishment, word has come out from multiple wrestlers that Tessa has a history of being a bully and a racist. It’s a lot to take in, but we share our reactions. 

The Three Count

Darnell put over artist Lauren Moran and the MV Young No Ring Death Match Extravaganza 

Lindsey put over this week’s episode of NXT, especially the debut of Mercedes Martinez.

Danielle put over the latest episode of Being the Elite with Kris Statlander and Orange Cassidy.

Hosted by Danielle Radford, Lindsey Kelk and Darnell Mitchell.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.
