It’s time to speculate about the end of TV ratings on a brand new Tights and Fights!
Yup, it looks like the WWE is officially going back to TV-14 after decades of PG television. What does that mean for the show itself? Probably none of the things that we suggest.
Sasha Banks is in the news again with her first public appearance at C2E2 since leaving WWE. Why does it matter how much money she’s charging to work with the convention? That’s the best part- it doesn’t!
Plus we’ll talk about why we miss Rhea Ripley, why we can’t wait for Ronda to head out and where Liv Morgan should go next
The Main Event: Paul Heyman
Paul Heyman has been the peak of promos as an advocate, manager and special council for WWE’s biggest stars. Now that he’s once again caught between his two biggest collaborators in the latest Lesnar/Reigns match, we’re going to take a look at Heyman’s career and legacy in wrestling so far.
