Episode notes

We’re a week out from the Royal Rumble! Time to break it all down on NEW episode of Tights and Fights!

There were a couple of big stories that involved real life difficulties: 1) Mustafa Ali has asked for his release, but WWE is reportedly not going to provide him with it. 2) Jon Moxley is back in a wrestling ring looking as healthy as ever after his sabbatical. Both hit our emotions hard in completely different ways.

And even as the seeds for WrestleMania slowly take shape, we’re excited for some of the Royal Rumble matches in their own right. Roman vs. Seth! Brock vs. Bobby!

All that, plus a look at the AEW women’s division… which seems to be taking baby steps towards improvement?

The Main Event

WALTER was one of the last major signings onto NXT. He became the longest reigning NXT UK Champion, made a few cameos on the main roster and now he’s got a new name that’s super problematic!

The Three Count

Lindsey put over Maryse hitting Beth Phoenix with a brick.

Danielle put over a Vegas wrestler taking down an attempted attacker on the street.

Hal put over John Cena on Peacemaker

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Lindsey Kelk

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.
