Don’t call it a comeback, but we’re back with a brand new Tights and Fights!
But first we have to acknowledge a major loss in wrestling: Whether you knew him as Scott Hall or Razor Ramon, he was a fixture of wrestling from the 80s, 90s and 00s. Tributes and testimonials have come from his friends and colleagues over the years. We’ll add our voices to the mix.
Despite that dark cloud, there was a lot ot enjoy from the week in wrestling as companies paid tribute to Hall. RAW is putting the pieces in place for WrestleMania in just a few weeks with stories involving Kevin Owens, Steve Austin, Roman Reigns and more going strong.
Plus: Edge has some new music! The first good episode of NXT 2.0 in ages! Thunder Rosa is the new AEW Women’s champion!
The Main Event:
There was a very scary moment on Smackdown where Ridge Holland botched a belly-to-belly suplex and broke Big E’s neck. Thankfully, E will be okay. And if there’s one silver lining when it comes to getting injured in wrestling: it’s the opportunity for a big comeback!
