Maxwell Jacob Friedman and his contract drama has taken the world by storm. Is it a work? Is it a shoot? Who cares! Let’s just bask in it on a brand new episode of Tights and Fights.
But first: Hal’s finally back! And that means we can catch him up on all the wrestling he’s missed.
AEW had their Double or Nothing PPV where CM Punk at last won the AEW World Championship. What do we hope for as he cements himself as the face of the company and prepares to fight Hiroshi Tanahashi?
Plus, we’ll look ahead to Hell in a Cell and lament that the women don’t get a cell this year. Boooooo!
The Main Event: MJF
Maxwell Jacob Friedman has been one of the most consistent acts on AEW since the brand premiered. Now there’s more drama around him and his future in the company than ever before.
