Tights and Fights Ep. 117: A low-blow to all of our hearts w/ Katie Willert
This Saturday, Danielle Radford, Hal Lublin, Lindsey Kelk and Julian Burrell will be at NXT: TakeOver War Games at the Staples Center in Los Angeles! If youâ€™d like to meet up with them beforehand, theyâ€™ll be eating lunch at Yard House at 2 PM. Katie Willert is ready to rejoin the Nation of Conversation! Becky Lynch is as hot a star as anyone in WWE right now. She led the Smackdown invasion into RAW that left her a bloody mess and as a bonafide sensation in wrestling. Unfortunately, because of a stray shot from Nia Jax, Becky is no longer medically cleared for her match with Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series. Where does that leave her as the champion? And will Charlotte Flair, her replacement in the match, be able to deliver a satisfactory replacement for a conflict everyone was excited for? Plus, Daniel Bryan defeated AJ Styles for the WWE championship! But in the process, he turned heel and shunned the persona and attitude that made him the hottest babyface in the company in 2013-14. The panel will discuss what they hope for Bryan as he prepares to face Universal Champion Brock Lesnar on Sunday. All of that and a look at everything coming up for NXT TakeOver: War Games in Los Angeles; that includes Johnny Gargano vs. Aleister Black, Tommaso Ciampa vs. Velveteen Dreamâ€¦ and the possibility of a Matt Riddle appearance. Misandry Corner TRIGGER WARNING: This segment contains aÂ discussion of a WWE situation that involved staged sexual assault. To skip this segment, scrub forward from 24:26 to 38:09 on the episode. Trish Stratus was the WWF womenâ€™s champion in 2001. Throughout this time, she was heavily involved in storylines that featured Vince McMahon and their supposed affair. This led to a moment on Smackdown when Vince tried to make her join his infamous club, only for her to be rescued by the Rock. Weâ€™ll take a look at what made this segment so awful and rewrite and recast it to make it better. The Three Count Katie put over Becky Lynchâ€™s tweet to Ronda Rousey, which he considers Lesnarâ€™s last great match Lindsey put over the promo for Daniel Bryanâ€™s heel turn. Danielle put over the trailer for Fighting With My Family. Hosted by Danielle Radford, Lindsey Kelk and Katie Willert. Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.
