Has the Triple Threat Been Threatened?

Has the Triple Threat Been Threatened?

News broke earlier today of Roman Reigns’s suspension for violating the WWE’s Wellness Policy.  While Reigns has already posted his public apology, we still don’t know what substance he was using, but the internet suspects weed.  All of my jokes have to do with marijuana, so let’s hope it isn’t something more serious.  With that [...]

#GoingInRaw: The Shield Takes a Stroll Down Memory Lane

#GoingInRaw: The Shield Takes a Stroll Down Memory Lane

Over  the weekend,  humankind was hit by the senseless tragedy in Orlando. At the top of Raw, a  moment of silence was  held for the victims of the shooting and their families.  The entire roster stood shoulder to shoulder in somber silence.  We’re starting to see the roster stand on the  ramp a little too [...]

The Champ is There…on the Ground

The Champ is There…on the Ground

Look at all these rumors.  Love it or hate it, the brand split is happening and Smackdown will be going live on Tuesday nights.  Some people think we get too much show on Monday night’s as it is.  But with another likely two hours of live professional wrestling coming up the next day, is it [...]

#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

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 [...]
