Episode notes

Pass the controller and keep your mask on for the love of all things holy! It’s a new episode of Tights and Fights!

WWE has been dealt a blow with its champion, Drew McIntyre being one of the latest people who’ve tested positive for COVID-19. What does that mean for his 100% totally wanted dream match with Goldberg at the Royal Rumble?

We’re also scant weeks away from the Rumble, WWE’s first major show of the year. We’ve got a few contestants named, but most of the fun in a show like this is all the surprises that are hopefully in-store.

Plus, how great is NXT? Seriously? We got even more great shows guaranteed with Finn Balor vs. Pete Dunn on the horizon and he Dusty Rhodes tag team classic in full swing.

Main Event

AEW has shared more details of its up-coming video game. We’re not really sold on the extra beefy character models that we’ve seen so far…. But the gameplay sounds promising! We’ll explain what our hopes are for the game to fill the 2K sized hole in hearts that WWE’s games have left. 

Three Count

Danielle put over Malcom Bivens ruining the Buss It challenge.

Julian put over the WWE Day of Reckoning video-game series.

Hal put over Dr. Britt Baker’s Waiting Room.

Hosted by Hal Lublin and Danielle Radford.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.
