#GoingInRaw: The Guy vs The Man is Set for Money in the Bank. Too Soon?

#GoingInRaw: The Guy vs The Man is Set for Money in the Bank. Too Soon?

Raw was live from Baltimore, MD so I’ll try to get through this with as few references to The Wire as possible. Fresh off the Extreme Rules pay-per-view, the WWE set its sights on the next big event, Money in the Bank in which the winner of that match will of course claim a contract [...]

#GoingInRaw: Black to Da Future: At Least They Didn’t Turn Into Stepfan Urquelle

Raw was live from Greensborough, NC and with a few days before Extreme Rules, the WWE has done a pretty decent job of setting it up. All that was left to do, was finalize a few match stipulations and that’s pretty much what they did. Which makes it very easy to Go in Raw this [...]

#GoingInRaw: Mess With My Family and it’s Gon’ Be Some Furniture Moving

In a super anticlimactic move at Payback, Vince McMahon’s decision for Raw was yet another indecision.  His cavalier attitude of “You figure it out” is so far-fetched that’s insulting to think anyone would be ridiculous enough to say, “Here’s my multimillion dollar business, children. You figure out how best to run it.” It’s funny to [...]

#GoingINRaw: The Bih is Back…and Gone Again

Last Thursday we were rocked by the loss of Joanie “Chyna” Laurer. I am by no means a Smackdown viewer, so I didn’t know if a farewell package had been put together in time for the show. There was a small pocket of the Universe who wondered if they would even put a dedication on [...]

Beyoncé Gives Us Life, Shows Us Black Girl Depth With Lemonade

Saturday night’s release of Beyoncé’s sixth album, Lemonade, reaffirmed a notion that my mother inundated me with since I was just a little girl: one of the most dangerous things to be in this country is a black woman . More often than not, black women’s bodies are fetishized and abused, our vernacular is being stolen, [...]

#GoingInRaw: Book to the Future #1

It has been a busy week for your Main Maine.  I’m actually starting to feel like Steve Harvey or Kevin Hart with all the work I’ve been doing lately.  The day after the world lost Chyna and His Purple Majesty, I needed some therapy.  So I sat down via Skype with my fellow black writer/father/creator/wrestling fan, [...]

What Chyna Taught Us, But Won’t Get Credit For

What Chyna Taught Us, But Won’t Get Credit For

Fans of the world of professional wrestling were shocked and saddened at the news of Joanie “Chyna” Laurer’s passing. Laurer first gained national fame as Degradation X’s enforcer in 1997. Apart from her obvious size difference to the other female wrestlers, Chyna was a cut from an entirely different cloth.  Whereas most female competitors would [...]

Hello True Believers and welcome to another edition of Going in Raw! This week’s episode of Monday Night Raw was taped in London, England. The WWE is on tour in Europe and the Middle East so it was interesting to see just what would take place on a taped show. In the past, the WWE [...]

The Oxymorrons Talk About Their Musical Mission And The Future

The Oxymorrons don’t just supersede genres with their music- they smash the genres and rise from the ashes of the boxes the music industry tries to force artists into. The band hails from New York, the literal and proverbial melting pot of cultures, people and inevitably music- it comes as no surprise that The Oxymorrons [...]
