Tights and Fights Ep. 163: We keep it in context

| 0 comments

This week Hal Danielle and Lindsey take a look at the season premiere of RAW. With AEW and NXT going live, SURELY the flagship program of the WWE would come out swinging, right?

We’ll discuss how we felt about everything, from the brand new set to storylines, to the surprising lack of wrestling for most of the show.

The good news of course is that if RAW isn’t doing it for you, there are plenty of new wrestling shows to entertain you. And last week NXT showed that it will continue to deliver the goods as it prepares for a two hour broadcast on USA.

Keith Lee, Matt Riddle, Io Shirai, Dakota Kai… there’s almost too many stars in place that look poised to keep the show as WWE’s best, even when it airs at the same time as the fledgling AEW.

The Three Count

Julian put over Vince McMahon directed by David Lynch.

Lindsey put over Jungle Boy’s farewell to indie wrestling.

Danielle put over AEW’s Real Different promo.

Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford, and Lindsey Kelk.

Tights and Fights Ep. 162: Crashing Crowns

This week Hal Danielle and Lindsey take a look at the first week of NXT on USA. Tons of great wrestling got a chance to shine, including Candice LeRae who now has a shot at the NXT women’s title on Oct. 2nd.

Not only that, but the Undisputed Era now holds every men's title on the brand. With Roderick Strong defeating Velveteen Dream for the North American title, it looks like NXT has its central antagonists for once their on for a full two hours.

Plus: with NXT now on live TV, more people under the WWE umbrella will be stopping by Full Sail for the exposure. That included WALTER with the Imperium faction from NXT UK and Oney Lorcan and Lio Rush from 205 Live came through. We’ll explain what we thought of their showings.

All of this, plus who on RAW and Smackdown got our attention on the “season finales” of the shows as they prepare for major reboots? Is Carmella the master of the long con? And have King Corbin and Chad Gable found the grounds for a real rivalry?

The Three Count

Hal put over Carmella winning the 24/7 championship.

Lindsey put over Kairi Sane.

Danielle put over Ali in Hawaii.
