Episode notes

Check your draft card, it’s a brand new episode of Tights and Fights!

There’s going to be plenty of new faces on RAW and SmackDown. The women’s champions are now on each others’ brands which we imagine will make for some fun hijinks in the future. Plus there are some NXT call ups that we’re really excited about.

And speaking of NXT 2.0… we’re sorry to report that it’s really not good. There’s some bright spots, but there’s also a bunch of really questionable characters and creative decisions that we’re afraid just aren’t working (and it doesn’t all have to do with those lights).

Where do we go from here? Unfortunately to Crown Jewel (and no, we’re still not going to talk about. Looks like a good card though).

Main Event

AEW is officially two years old. It was founded on the promise of “AEW is for Everyone.” We’ve banged on about how they’ve failed to live up to that promise and will go into detail here. But there’s also something new in the air where we may have found a lot more to focus on and enjoy as we entire Dynamite’s third year.

The Three Count

Danielle put over Amanda Huber showcasing her son’s wrestling future.

Lindsey put over the G1 Climax.

Hal put over Dolph Ziggler’s long memory.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Lindsey Kelk

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.
