The latest report from Dave Meltzer’s F4WOnline notes a WWE article (that has apparently been taken down now) which goes out of its way to specifically bash the UFC 91 undercard despite it proving to be one of the most exciting cards to date:
“…Many of the fights on the UFC PPV ended in the first round leaving UFC producers scrambling to fill the three-hour event with content. The dearth off hearty competition left many viewers to watch less prestigious undercard fights and only served to bolster claims that UFC pay per view events can often be a `crap shoot’ in regards to filling the full three hours.”
One can only wonder if the person who wrote that piece even bothered to watch the fights, or has any knowledge of MMA whatsoever. Sadly, it is this type of rhetoric which fuels the fire between MMA and WWE purists, when really a mutual respect is all either party should be working towards. The WWE article even slipped in a jab about Brock Lesnar for “taking advantage of the encouragement of the WWE Universe and all the hard lessons he learned in WWE for his win.”
Yeah, that makes sense. Way to be mature about a former employee finding success in another industry, WWE.
