After struggling through week after week of dull and dour episodes
of Raw, last night’s episode of the WWE’s Monday flagship surprised fans by giving
them a show that wasn’t completely awful.
Filled with (literal!) explosive action, some good in-ring
work, the ever-entertaining 24/7 content, and an AJ Styles heel turn, Raw was given a major shot in the arm as Paul Heyman took control of the red brand. One of the most eye-catching moments of the episode, though, involved Mike
and Maria Kanellis. And now, we’ve got an update on where things may be heading
for the married couple.

Sheet’s Ryan Satin, Heyman was heavily involved in the angle that saw Maria
announce she’s pregnant yet completely berate her husband for not being “man
enough” to get the job done. Satin clams that upon Mike and Maria recently signing new five-year
deals with WWE, there were rumblings of a “cucking angle” for the duo; an angle
that seemingly began during this week’s Raw broadcast.
To save you the trouble, we’ve taken to the depths of Urban Dictionary
to get an official definition for cucking: “To enjoy arranging for
and watching other men have rough demeaning sex with one's wife.
Often perceived as a masochistic humiliating experience for the
husband as opposed to normal swinging.”
This would certainly fall in line with Maria mocking Mike and
referring to him as her bitch.
In real life, Maria is indeed pregnant. How this all plays
out, we’ll have to wait and see. But hey, it’s at least something different to
another drab Elias performance or a Baron Corbin promo.
