Episode notes

We had a break and a breather and back with a NEWWWWW Tights and Fights!

What better way to bring us back than Hal geeking out about the love that the 76ers got from all the wrestlers this past week? But that’s not the only NBA crossover into wrestling: Basketball booted AEW from it’s regular time slot!

Plus we’ll discuss what appears to be Kofi Kingston’s return to the main event title picture, Big E beginning his feud with Aleister Black and the very first title win of Tamina’s career.

Main Event

Booker T recently got a career documentary on the A&E Network. Conspicuously absent was one of the biggest matches of his career: against Triple H for the World Championship at WrestleMania 19. The feud is mainly known for how truly racist the language was on the build to the event. How bad was it? Could it have been saved?

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Lindsey Kelk

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.
