It’s the most cursed Summer of wrestling, but let’s try to brave it together on a brand new episode of Tights and Fights!
Injuries continue to plague both AEW and WWE. Daniel Bryan is out for the foreseeable future and has promised a surprise competitor to replace him in his upcoming matches at “Forbidden Door” and “Blood & Guts.”
Rhea Ripley is not medically cleared to compete at “Money in the Bank.” So Bianca Belair will face Carmella instead.
But there’s thankfully still some things to be happy about and a bold explanation about which pop culture franchises best explain the purpose of AEW.
The Main Event: Vince McMahon
Vincent Kennedy McMahon has been the chief creative and business mind behind WWE for decades. Every single decision and expansion has been made with him at the center of it. With the latest scandal and investigation, he faces what may be the most significant disruption to his power yet.
Full disclosure: the main event segment has been rumored to be cursed the last few weeks, with anyone who we discuss getting disappeared from TV. So we figured why not aim high?
