Minority Korner

James is back from his holiday in the U.K. and he brings news: In England the hottest ticket in town is... The Bodyguard the Musical AKA a Whitney Houston tribute, and Broadway level it ain't. After this segment Nnekay and James will probably not be allowed to visit London's theater district the West End because of all the shade but James just might be West End bound anyways. We catch up on our Kwanzaa Celebrations. As promised James is delivering just as he teased last year, we are divining into the history of homosexuality in Africa, debunking the myth that it is a thing brought to the continent by white colonizers. Surprise! Africa's always been gay! We get subversive in this controversial Quizlet Korner, where it might be time to breath, think, and put the torches down. Is Vivica A. Fox's ladies only/no gays allowed Vegas show homophobic? Did she apologize? Does she need to? Did J LO beat out Mariah Carey in the battle of NYE performances by actually having a rehearsal? Is Frank Ocean's mom demanding a homophobic gospel singer be removed from her son's new album? Did Black Lives Matter really kidnap and torture a man? Like... Really??? Did James remove his troll from his life? What exactly IS The Bodyguard Musical? All this and more on this week's Minority Korner!

| 0 comments
Danielle Radford, Mira Waters and Hal Lublin

Mike Eagle is out for the week, but we’ve got another Chicagoan stepping in in his stead: Mira Waters from the website Fight Booth.

The team discusses Wrestle Kingdom 11 and why it hopefully set the tone for a great year of wrestling. And yes, they’ll talk about that great main event for the IWGP Championship.

Plus, while Smackdown’s women’s title picture is heating up, Danielle and Mira have MAJOR beef with how a certain announcer has been treating the overall division.

Also on the docket: Chris Jericho’s big title win on RAW, The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels returning to TV, how WWE can best use American Alpha in the future and much more.

My Special Wrestler:

Lindsey Kelk is an accomplished author, but she’s also quite the wrestling fan. She’s covered Wrestlemania for Cosmopolitan and interviewed plenty of popular wrestlers in the WWE and beyond.

But there’s one superstar who’s always had her attention since she was a kid: Bret “The Hitman” Hart. She’ll explain why.

Lindsey Kelk’s newest book is entitled We Were on a Break.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over The upcoming collaboration between WWE and the Jetsons..

Mira put over Chris Jericho’s entire line of work (including his constant search for friendship)..

Hal put over Alexa Bliss’s promos on Talking Smack..

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mira Waters

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

If you wanna talk about more wrestling throughout the week be sure to join us on Facebook or @TightsFights on Twitter.
