On this week's episode of Tights and Fights, the leaders of the Nation of Conversation take a look at whether 12+ hours of wrestling in one weekend means there's too much content for anyone to possibly consume... and whether they will any way.
Plus, TNA's got a new president: Billy Corgan (Yeah the Smashing Pumpkins guy). They'll break down what went wrong in the Impact Zone and how TNA can hook them again as wrestling viewers.
All that and a look at why people in the crowd think they can jump into the ring during a live event, the team's favorite Summerslam moments and whether or not WWE should be giving away PPV attractions on free TV.

This week on Tights and Fights, the Nation of Conversation breaks down what made round one of the Cruiserweight Classic so awesome. Does this mean the new Cruiserweight division on RAW will follow suit? Well... they'll discuss.
And Danielle was at RAW live in Anaheim! She’ll tell you about what you didn’t see if you were watching on TV. Plus, the team talk about whether there’s hope for Cesaro to finally get the push he deserves, what the best championship belt design of all time is and whether or not Ziggler is worthy of making the Superkick his permanent finish.
All that… AND how you’ll be able to find Danielle in season 3 of Lucha Underground.

Pro wrestler Colt Cabana of the Art of Wrestling podcast joins us to talk about wrestling in Japan, at the Gathering of the Juggalos, and about the porn studio upstairs from our new digs.
We don't do a lot of wrestling coverage here at MaximumFun.org, but this is genuinely fun stuff. Our friend Charlie Todd (the founder of Improv Everywhere) runs a comedy wrestling league at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York called UCBW. This week wrestling legend Mick Foley stopped by to do a little comedy, but then he got wrapped up in the grand finale. You can find further details at The Apiary and at Charlie's blog.
