Episode notes

Do we have everybody’s attention now? It’s a brand new episode of Tights and Fights!

Before we can even get into wrestling, Danielle can’t wait to tell you more about the brand new film F9 starring the one and only John Cena! Did he turn F9 into an FU? There’s only one way to find out!

Plus there’s a lot to get into from AEW and NXT: How’s about the Young Bucks new facial hair? Like, we can all agree mutton chops are a universal heel move, right?

And now that Isaiah “Swerve” Scott has brought gold Hit Row, does this mean Bronson Reed is set to move on to RAW or Smackdown? If that is the case, we’ll tell you why that’s not as much a cause for concern as you might think.

Plus we’ve gotta talk about Karrion Kross’ weird pleather blazer. We just HAVE to.

Main Event: The Pipe Bomb’s 10th anniversary

It’s widely considered one of the greatest promos of all time: CM Punk’s Pipe Bomb in Las Vegas. He sat, he scolded us with his truth and set the wrestling world aflame as few moments ever have. What’s the legacy of the promo ten years later? How does it hold up now that we have the full context of Punk’s entire WWE career?

The Three Count:

Lindsey put over Breezango.

Danielle put over Jordynne Grace Dead Lifting on twitter.

Julian put over The CM Punk vs. John Cena promo.

Hosted by Danielle Radford and Lindsey Kelk

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.
