What a massive week of news. And we’ll do our best to sift through it all on a brand new episode of Tights and Fights!
Vince McMahon has stepped away from WWE, at least on a temporary basis. This comes after a Wall Street Journal report that he paid off a former employee after what the story called “an affair.” As the WWE board looks into whether he used WWE money to cover for his transgressions, Stephanie McMahon has been announced as the interim chairwoman and CEO.
There’s a lot to sift through and the only way we know how is with jokes speculation!
Plus, the hits just keep coming: Jeff Hardy was arrested for Driving Under the Influence. He’s now been suspended from AEW as he seeks rehabilitation. So we make an impassioned plea for him to get the help he needs.
The Main Event: Rhea Ripley
Rhea Ripley has a new look and a new faction on her side with The Judgment Day. And the group’s first order of business is to support Rhea in her match against Bianca Belair so that she can earn her second RAW women’s title.
