Nick goes right into the Candy Kisses (Lizzy Valentine) defending Wrestlicious’ recent negative reviews.
Alan notes Candy Kisses (Lizzy Valentine) said in an interview that Wrestlicious is a television show, not a wrestling program. It is an “action comedy,” “It is not a serious wrestling show,” and that serious fans need to “chill out.”
Nick and Alan agree with each other and said the program was bad, a slap to the face of women’s wrestling.
