The Divas of Doom: 10 Years Later
Hard to believe that the angle that gave us the Divas of Doom started a full decade ago. I remember it like it was yesterday, and even to this very day, I still have fond memories of how it started and everything that took place in the months that followed. Before going into the whole story of the Divas of Doom, let's take a look at the players involved and where they were entering the beginning of this angle.
Villainess Review: Valerie McGlynn (You're Not Safe Here)
There is a huge reason why I was so excited weeks ago when I learned about this movie, originally titled, The Girl in the Window, now known as You're Not Safe Here. The film begins with Ava discovering that she's pregnant with her first child with boyfriend Shane, who is established as being abusive and controlling towards Ava. Ava leaves Shane's clutches with the help of her friend Kyle, but while on the road, she ends up crashing her car. When she wakes up, Ava finds herself in a house occupied by Valerie and William McGlynn, who are both doctors.
Reviewing Sasha Banks' Return to SmackDown
On April 9, 2021, the first night of WrestleMania 37 took place, and that night's main event was historic, as Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair ended that evening competing for the SmackDown Women's Championship. It marked the first time that a one-on-one match involving Black women main evented a night of WrestleMania, and the title bout saw Bianca (who won this year's Women's Royal Rumble) capture the title from Sasha; capping off a huge elevation for Bianca. Sasha had only been seen on WWE TV once since losing the title, while Bianca had successful defenses against former champions Bayley and Carmella during her 100+ day reign. Their historic main event won an ESPY at this year's event, under the category of "Best WWE Moment."
Villainess Review: Annie Weaver (Am I a Serial Killer?)
2019's Am I a Serial Killer? was quite an interesting Lifetime film full of twists and turns. The film centered on Natalie, an 18-year-old girl living with her aunt, Caroline Weaver, having done so in the eight years that passed since Natalie's mother, Annie Weaver, was convicted of killing couple Lucy and Frank Miller. The Millers had been living in a room at Annie's mother's old home, but they were suddenly murdered when Natalie was 10 years of age, and it was Natalie who testified against Annie, leading to Annie's conviction.
Reviewing The End of Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez's Alliance
We all saw this coming ever since Raquel Gonzalez became NXT Women's Champion. We all figured that it was only a matter of time before Raquel and Dakota's year-plus long alliance would end because of that title. None of us were surprised with what went down on the latest edition of NXT. The only one who was surprised: none other than Raquel Gonzalez herself.
Villainess Review: Elise Simon (Devious Nanny)
As I mentioned in an earlier review, March and April 2018 were amazing months for this Lifetime movie fan, because the period featured some very amazing movies with awesome villainesses. The film that kicked off this trend was Devious Nanny, which was released as The Au Pair in 2017, and also went under the alternate title, Nanny Betrayal. The film centered on the Simons: Elise, Brian, and son Cody, as well as the couple hiring a new nanny, Amber Deschanel. She wasn't their first au pair; their last one, Becky Hopkins, was murdered in the film's opening, and it was revealed that she and Brian engaged in an affair.
For Christie Brennan, it was business as usual. It was approaching 5PM, and Christie was at her usual place: parked outside an office building waiting for Dayna Francis, the woman who completed her. The hours that often followed were the same: they would talk about their day as Christie cooks dinner for them, they would be lost in each other's embrace while watching TV together, and they would be in bed together, cuddling like two people who truly love each other often do.
Presenting the Cleveland Guardians
On July 23, 2021, it was announced that Cleveland's MLB franchise will now be known as the Guardians, with the news being broken on Twitter. The franchise debuted in 1894 as the Grand Rapids Rustlers for their first six seasons, until undergoing three different name changes between 1900 and 1902. In 1903, they became the Cleveland Napoleons (shortened to "Naps"), named after their star player, Napoleon "Nap" Lajoie, but after Lajoie's departure following the 1914 season, the team adopted their long time familiar name: the Cleveland Indians.
