The road to WrestleMania is rapidly being paved! Let’s talk all about it on a brand new episode of Tights and Fights!
This year’s winners were Cody Rhodes and Rhea Ripley and goodness did they earn their spots in a pair of really strong Royal Rumbles. What they lacked in surprises the two matches more than made up for in setting up the participants to look strong.
While we know two of the matches set for Mania, there’s still so much to rampantly speculate about– so let’s make sure we do that!
The Main Event: The Honorary Uce
Roman Reigns successfully defended his title against Kevin Owens in the Royal Rumble main event. But that’s secondary to the subsequent beatdown that KO got from the Bloodline before Sami Zayn finally decided that he’d had enough of Roman Reigns and betrayed the tribal chief with a chair to the back.
The Three Count:
Danielle put over a backstage journey at the Rumble.
Lindsey put over Batista’s desire to be a rom-com star.
Hal put over Sami Zayn on twitter.
