Tights and Fights Ep. 129: Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart w/ Chris Gethard

Chris Gethard

This week Hal, Danielle and Lindsey are joined by Chris Gethard! He’s a comedian who’s worked in TV and hosts the podcast "Beautiful/ Anonymous". He’s also someone who wouldn’t let a little thing like parent’s permission get in the way of his childhood wrestling fandom.

To start, the team will discuss some of the biggest things that happened in wrestling this week.

This includes things in WWE like Kofi Kingston’s new opportunity to the WWE Championship and the fact that Charlotte has officially been inserted into the RAW women’s title match against Ronda Rousey. Regarding the latter, it was something we all saw coming. So how are we feeling now that it’s official?

Beyond WWE, AEW had a lot of talent announcements from this week, with confirmations that Nyla Rose, Sonny Kiss and Kenny Omega are now under contract. Plus, Jay White is now the IWGP heavyweight champion after beating Hiroshi Tanahashi. Where do these moves leave each respective promotions as they prepare for the rest of 2019?

The Beatdown: Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart

After Hulk Hogan left WWF, the company faced a creative valley as it searched for its next big star. Eventually, two stars emerged in the early to mid-90’s that would be expected to carry to the company: Bret “The Hitman” Hart and The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels. Their talent eventually coalesced into one of the most bitter rivalries in WWF and a moment that would change wrestling forever.

The team will get into the biggest moments that defined their story from the WrestleMania to the Montreal Screwjob to their reconciliation in Dayton, Ohio.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford, Lindsey Kelk and Chris Gethard.

Adam Pranica officially joins the Nation of Conversation!

He’s the host of other amazing shows on the Maximum Fun Network, Like The Greatest Generation and Friendly Fire, but he also used to be a HUGE wrestling fan. It all started when he learned that his grandfather could very easily be mistaken for Ric Flair and blossomed from there.

Even though he’s lapsed as a fan over the years, he’s still got great memories of being huge fan when wrestling was at its zenith in pop culture; think back to the Nitro and Thunder days. Now, he’s ready to rekindle his fandom with Mike, Hal and Danielle!

The Beat Down

In this brand new segment, the panel takes a special look at each story beat of a significant wrestling saga and explains what made it so special.

For this first installment, in honor of his big win against Tetsuya Naito at Dominion, the team will examine Chris Jericho’s 2008 rivalry against Shawn Michaels. It led to tons of great matches, a brand new version of the Jericho character and was so great that Y2J has since called it the best story of his career.
