Let’s enjoy life in the fast lane before an orange racist ruins WrestleMania! It’s a brand new Tights and Fights!
This Sunday is the last live show on the WWE Network before the service moves over to the Peacock platform. We’ll say little requiem for our $9.99 friend, between what went right, wrong and our hopes for WWE on Peacock.
There are some fun matches on deck for Fast Lane, but it’s a little hard to focus on that when 1) this feels like an unnecessary step before Mania and 2) Hulk Hogan is returning to host the biggest show of the year.
We’ll try to properly express our excitement for some great wrestling and our disgust that the orange racist is returning for his biggest showcase yet since his brief exit from WWE.
The Main Event
It’s been years in the making but it’s finally happened: A women’s match main evented AEW Dynamite! Britt Baker and Thunder Rosa showcased a ton of brutality in this match they’ve been building to for months. But was it perhaps too brutal? And how much progress did it make in assuaging our concerns about the AEW women’s division?
The Three Count
Lindsey put over Rebel’s involvment in AEW’s women’s match.
Julian put over Shawn Michaels vs. Vince McMahon at WrestleMania 22.
Hal put over Johnny Gargano and Candice Lerae eatign Dairy Queen.
