    With the announcement of Holm / Rousey this is just more evidence Vince McMahon is better at promoting than DW. This fight has been announced for a couple of hours and there has been nothing but negativity and backlash. DW continues to lie to the fans and in turn put on fights of no interest. I will enjoy some real entertainment this Sunday for $9.99 and laugh at the idea that DW thinks he has some sort of sustainable business model.

    Actually it's been split pretty much 50/50, even from the fighters according to most of their tweets I have seen.

    you cannot name a time this wasn't the case.

    we should just sticky a thread:

    "like OMG, i am soooooo mad at Dana because (insert fighter) got (insert bout)"

    and yes, you should read that in a 6th grade girl voice. because that's what all the whining every time every bout is announced sounds like.

    To be fair, there are not many options. Also, it's not like Vince has never faced backlash from the fans for some of the moves he's made, especially lately with how he's handled superstars.

    Dana couldn't even sell out the American Airlines Center where the Dallas Mavericks play.

    You guys know that Lesnar is just saying what Vince (his boss) wants to hear, right?

    And that ultimately they're very different companies?

    And that one call, good or bad, can't validate, or invalidate Lesnar's words, right?

    Well yeah obviously it's a lot easier to hype big matches when you decide who wins, but it seems the UFC has been dropping the ball lately with shitty title fights.

    Yeah but WWE fans only pay their money regardless, it's like what Eminem said


    "Every minute there's a sucker born,
    Snuck up on Malachai and made the motherfucker suck on a shuck of corn,
    Shuck of, shuck of corn, shuck of corn"

    because Vince can make an arena look like this and DW cannot?

    I thought Holly Holm didn't wanna fight Ronda yet. She said so herself.

    seems like it wasn't even three weeks ago, Holm herself said she "wasn't ready for that fight yet."
