What an emotional roller coaster of a week! Let’s talk about it all on a jumbo-sized brand new Tights and Fights!
Clash at the Castle was everything we could have hoped for and so much more. Some of the best matches of the year from WWE along with intriguing new directions for a bunch of the major characters. Drew McIntyre vs. Roman Reigns! Gunther vs. Sheamus! Bianca Belair’s first loss in forever!
The good vibes continued the next day on NXT: Worlds Collide. Are we finally excited about NXT again?
AEW’s All Out show was a bit more uneven, but still delivered some matches that were at least worth a watch… but that was almost forgotten just a few hours after the show.
The Main Event: CM Punk’s Gripe Bomb
After regaining his AEW championship, CM Punk joined Tony Khan for a press conference that will live in infamy. He launched into a tirade that bad-mouthed Colt Cabana, MJF, Adam Page, Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks.
As if that wasn’t enough, Punk said, “If you have a problem, come find me.” And find him the Bucks and Kenny did, starting a fight that would get the Bucks, Pat Buck, Kenny Omega and Michael Nakazawa suspended. Ace Steel and Punk’s status with the company has not been determined yet.
