#GoingINRaw: The Bih is Back…and Gone Again

#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 [...]

#GoingInRaw: Reigns to Styles: You Aint ish Without Ya Homeboys

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 [...]

#GoingInRaw: Styles Proves They Indeed Don’t Want None

WWE.com has a poll that asks, “What is the biggest shocker of WrestleMania 32?” Short answer? Nothing. We all woke up Monday with a Mania 32 hangover. If you played the WM32 drinking game, you probably woke up in the ER after getting your stomach pumped. It all unfolded exactly the same way it does [...]

#GoingInRaw: Vince to Taker: Win or Go Home

Raw was live from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia , PA. Beanie Sigel was not shown in the front row, so I was disappointed, but the show managed without him. I was beginning to feel like that Tracy Chapman record, One Reason. For weeks now I have been calling for Vince McMahon to give [...]
