A Grand Slam, a secret bunny and a bunch of new champions. It’s the kind of combination you can only get in wrestling! And we’re all too happy to walk you through it on a brand new episode of Tights and Fights!
AEW set up a bunch of new champions, including Jon Moxley finally getting a true coronation. Shame he’ll never get that vacation though.
And as Logan Paul continues to be miscast as a babyface there’s a very interesting dynamic at play in his match against Roman Reigns– even though we have no intention of seeing the match that will pay it all off.
Plus we’ll talk about WWE running a surprisingly successful viral campaign and why Lindsey got very British in her disapproval of Cesaro losing the ROH World Title.
The Main Event: Saraya (fka Paige) and the women of AEW
Paige was one of the first names in WWE’s rebooted women’s division. Injury forced her to step away from performing in the ring, but she remained a big part of the shows for years before leaving the company earlier this year. Now she’s made her debut in AEW as Saraya where she’ll likely wrestle again for the first time since 2017.
