Dream the impossible dream of Vince no longer having any control of wrestling on a brand new episode of Tights and Fights.
One year ago today the old man announced his retirement from WWE. It was a shocking day that had an immediate impact on the quality of WWE’s TV shows, ticket sales, employee morale and fan enthusiasm.
And then Vince came back and helped sell the company.
Even though we’re not filled the joy that we had in the few months following Vince fully leaving, we can’t help but feel that WWE is still a better product for his more limited presence.
How much do we fear him putting together the occasionally crappy show? Who specifically has benefitted from him no longer booking? We discuss it all!
The Three Count:
Danielle put over Bodybuilders arguing about rest days.
Julian put over CMFTR LGBTQ.
Lindsey put over Dark Side of the Ring featuring Magnum TA.
