It’s Royal Rumble weekend and it’s time to celebrate on a brand new episode of Tights and Fights!
There’s a lot of changes coming to WWE near the end of the year. We already knew about Smackdown moving to USA Network and NXT moving to the CW. Now we’ve learned that RAW will make the jump to Netflix. We’ll discuss what this means for us.
The Main Event
2018 was a massive Royal Rumble: Shinsuke Nakamura’s biggest win ever! Asuka wins the first ever women’s Rumble! Ronda Rousey debuts in WWE! We were excited about two of those. In a segment previously recorded in 2018, Hal, Danielle, Lindsey and Mike Eagle discuss the event.
The Three Count
Lindsey put over Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins on GQ.
Julian put over the new era of TNA.
Danielle put over refs in the new WWE 2K24 videogame.
The music for our new promo is provided by Incompetech.com
