^ lol 'performance art'

pro-wrestling is just ridiculous. I respect their athleticism and toughness but the whole premise of the thing is just stupid.

Kboy I voted you up.

 

The UFC was saved, like didn't go out of business because at UFC 40 they sold 100k ppV the first time since Royce was considered the best in the world, because Ken Shamrock (Fresh from WWF) and Tito Ortiz had a pro wrestling feud and main evented.

Well, that's fine.
Smackdown would be the equivalent of a UFC on FX or FOX.
I can imagine it would have more "social media reaction" then tuf.
How much "social media reaction" does Tough Enough get?

KboyFresh - The WWE never wanted to associate its brand with MMA or Zuffa. Early on, it was Zuffa all along who attempted to poach fans from the WWE and expose them to the UFC.

The lead-in for the first season of TUF was none other than WWE Raw. Keep in mind that TUF was a blatant rip-off of a show called WWE Tough Enough. Remember the Zuffa television show "Octagon Girl Search"? Yeah, it was a blatant rip-off of WWE Diva Search. When Brock Lesnar came to the UFC, it was Dana White who begged the WWE to allow him to use footage of Brock's pro-wrestling exploits to promote the so-called sport of MMA. The result was Zuffa airing commercials of Brock "powerbombing" WWE wrestlers in an effort to promote their brand.

The close association between the UFC and the WWE is the doing of Zuffa.


There is no close association. They have nothing in common. One is a sport, and one is a national embarrassment meant for 12 year old children.

Can you imagine a grown man watching and enjoying pretend-wrestling?

Sure the UFC is an embarrassment, but calling it pretend is going too far, IMO.

So embarrassing. If you're more than 12 years old, you ought to be embarrassed.

Go watch monster trucks or something at least. Have some self respect.

One thing i havd learned from this thread is you REALLY don't like wrestling. Seems like you have to get the point across that you don't like it...

stonepony - "the WWE regularly puts graphics on its broadcasts talking about beating other sports"

Wretard-Wrestling is not a sport. It's dumb to mention MMA and Wretard-Wrestling in the same sentence. Wretard-Wrestling should be comparing themselves to Dancing With The Stars, it's far more accurate (although, I guess competitive dance is a sport). Maybe they should compare themselves to some retarded day-time soap-opera?

 

today's MMA scene was basically born from pro-wrasslin', from the RAW lead-ins for TUF, to many of the pioneers of the sport moonlighting as wrestlers, deny all you want, but it's fact...

UFC business model up until now has been pretty much an exact replica of WWE.

UFC > fake shit

Scripted, not fake.

It's still fake, sure they take hits, but they aren't actually fighting. Therefore it's fake.
