Box Brown

This week, Hal and Danielle are rejoined by Box Brown. He’s a comic creator whose new book "Cannabis: The Illegalization of Weed in America".

Brown is a longtime, but lapsed, fan of WWE. The trends of the product have led to him being less dedicated to following televised wrestling. But this week featured a show that rekindled that love and has the entire panel excited for what’s to come: Double or Nothing from All Elite Wrestling.

It wasn’t perfect. But it was a great first step for a fledgling promotion that has the money and roster to compete with WWE for attention. We’ll go over everything that worked and what didn’t work… and take a quick look at what RAW’s response to the show was.

The Three Count

Box put over the all-women promotion AEW’s post-show press conferences.

Danielle put over wrestling in WWE shouting out AEW.

Hal put over Zack Ryder’s appearance on the Defunctland Podcast.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Box Brown.

Tights and Fights Ep. 144: An Encyclopedia of Women's Wrestling w/ LaToya Ferguson

LaToya Ferguson

This week, Danielle and Lindsey are rejoined by LaToya Ferguson. She’s the author of the brand new book "An Encyclopedia of Women’s Wrestling: 100 Profiles of the Strongest in the Sport." In it she details some of wrestling’s most important and impressive female athletes through the years, from Act Yasukawa to Wendi Richter.

The panel will also discuss Money in the Bank. As WWE’s first PPV after WrestleMania, it had the responsibility of setting the tone for the future narratives of the company, which it did in some ways we’re excited about and in others that we’re less sure about.

In good news: Bayley won the Money in the Bank ladder match and used it on the same night to become the Smackdown Women’s Champion. But now that Becky is one title short, what will the story be going forward? Should Bayley and Becky have a match or is The Man going to focus on RAW and take on Lacey Evans.

Plus, while Brock Lesnar returning to win the men’s Money in the Bank Briefcase disappointed many, Lindsey will explain why she’s actually okay with this version of the Beast involved in WWE programing.

All of this… plus a look at WWE’s newest accolade: The 24/7 Championship.

The Three Count

Latoya put over the all-women promotion Rise.

Lindsey put over Paul Heyman’s promo on RAW.

Danielle put over Ali’s tweet about his match with Andrade.

Hosted by Danielle Radford and Lindsey Kelk and LaToya Ferguson.

John Walsh a.k.a. Super Eyepatch Wolf

This week, Danielle and Lindsey are joined by John Walsh. His fans on YouTube know him as Super EyePatch Wolf, where he’s gained following for deep dives into anime, video-games and wrestling.

The panel takes a look at the latest stories and characters in NXT. That includes the drama surrounding the Undisputed Era, Matt Riddle’s cannabis and shoe habits, who the next women’s champion should be and the potential of Mr. Eric Bugenhagen.

The Beatdown

For years it was considered the sacred cow of WWE: The Undertaker’s WrestleMania undefeated streak. The drama and mythos behind “The Streak” really ramped up when Shawn Michaels and Triple H tried to end it for four consecutive years.

We’ll take a look at what made The Road to 20-0 so effective, including our thoughts on this 20+ year story and how we felt about its conclusion.

If you want to see more about the Undertaker and what The Streak meant to his character, be sure to check out this Super Eyepatch Wolf video.

We’re in the middle of a holiday week, so it’s a good time to take a look at the greatest holiday for wrestling fans: Ice Cream Christmas! That’s right, we’re looking back in the time of our fandom to once again take a look at a past WrestleMania.

For our previous special member-only episode, Mike, Hal and Danielle looked at one of the best events ever, WrestleMania X-Seven; this time, the gang is taking a look at one of the worst: WrestleMania 2000!

In a year of so many great PPV’s from the WWE, ironically the one show that didn’t live up to standard was the biggest one for the company. But what made it not work? Was it the convoluted main event? Or the lack of any traditional singles matches?

Plus, we’ll talk about the things that definitely did work, like the Triangle Ladder match between the Hardy Boyz, Edge and Christian and the Dudley Boyz, and share some fun facts from the show that you may not be aware of, even if you already watched this show 18 years ago.

Even in a quiet week of wrestling, the WWE machine keeps on moving.

Samoa Joe made his big debut against a Samoan Joe (who you may know better as Roman Reigns). We’ll talk about what we thought of Joe’s first RAW main event.

Plus, Smackdown’s got a Pay Per View this Sunday: Elimination Chamber. This year’s participants are AJ Styles, The Miz, John Cena, Bray Wyatt and Baron Corbin and Dean Ambrose. Who’s looking strong? And who should win the WWE Title to take on Randy Orton at Wrestlemania?

My Special Wrestler:

Jarrett Williams is the comics artist behind the Super Pro KO series. He’s here to tell you about one of the most loved… and hated superstars in WWE history: Triple H.

Williams just released the third installment in the Super Pro KO series. It’s entitled Gold for Glory.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over Sami Zayn’s recent article using his work to erase the stigma on Muslims AND the new WWE Champions mobile game.

Mike put over The Rock and Roll express being put in the WWE Hall of Fame.

Hal put over Tye Dillinger’s recent promo after entering into the Royal Rumble.
