JOE! JOE! JOE! JOE! It’s a brand new episode of Tights and Fights!

We’ve got just a few days to relax between WWE PPV weekends. NXT TakeOver: In Your House was a fina show by most counts, but it didn’t reach the lofty heights that we know TakeOvers can. What do we attribute that to?

Plus, WWE decided to really throw us off and have a Hell in a Cell match on Smackdown instead of this Sunday? Does this mean Roman will gain custody of Dominik? Or will Rey Mysterio finally get a chance at a great match in this latter day career run?

Main Event: Samoa Joe

In honor of his (thankfully, not long awaited) return, we’re going to talk all about Samoa Joe. He’s had some great highs both before and after his WWE career, included brilliant matches and being one of the best promos in the game. Where will he go from here?

The Three Count:

Lindsey put over Roddy Piper’s A&E documentary.

Danielle put over Naomi vs. Piper Niven

Hal put over The 2005 Royal Rumble promo

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Lindsey Kelk

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.
