Meantime, we get to watch THE BIG DOG get booed out of the building every week while he talks about magic beans.

If that's the only good thing they have, that's pathetic that the bar for what's considered good is THIS low.

Conor and Floyd are legit stars. This fight is going to draw a ridiculous amount of money and the buzz for it is insane. August 26 > Roman's career, in terms of impact.
Roman walking into Raw this Monday > Okada + Omega career, in terms of impact

Re: Conor Mcgregor and Floyd Mayweather teaching WWE how to do "sports entertainment"

The problem is, everyone knows WWE is "fake" and most people watching the press conference(s) between Mayweather & McGregor don't realise that there is a common understanding between the 2, to sell the fight and work together within certain perimeters. So nobody would really accept this kind of thing from the WWE. The only time they would is when there is an element of real. Thing Mike Tyson & Steve Austin shoving each other. CM Punk talking about taboo stuff live on TV, having his mic cut all around the time his contract was due.

WWE can do things like this but very, very rarely because audiences won't accept stuff they know to be fake, to the level of this Mayweather/McGregor thing (which is awesome.)

LOL This is fucking hilarious coming from an NJPW fan... Roman is too low your standars? Not big enough?

You mark for a fucking bunch of irrelevant asians that are rated based only on their in ring work and are totally irrelevant to everybody in the motherfucking world except their country, get the fuck out with your standars.

Re: Conor Mcgregor and Floyd Mayweather teaching WWE how to do "sports entertainment"

I've watched all 4 of those videos and I was laughing so hard but I'm sold on the fight. Even if WWE went this route, I doubt it would have made a difference, unless there's real bad blood, I do notice from time to time that an f-bomb is dropped but only for shock value I guess and considering how things have changed I don't think WWE has the balls to go that route.


...Beware of he who would deny you access to information, for in his heart he dreams himself your master.

I can't wait for this fight. They are gonna make so much money. WWE needs to take notes.

Insert suggestive pic of teets here.

Re: Conor Mcgregor and Floyd Mayweather teaching WWE how to do "sports entertainment"

When boxing begins to ape wrestling promos to hype up their fights yeah its the beginning of the end. The characters and atmosphere was the only thing WWE had on other combat sports.
If MMA starts doing more of these with crowd response segments. Complete with cursing and just off the cuff shooting WWE will only have the kiddy market left.

Floyd and Connor are stars they just went out there for 4 days and ripped into each other.
Nobody in the WWE is allowed to do that especially with PG tieing their hands

Re: Conor Mcgregor and Floyd Mayweather teaching WWE how to do "sports entertainment"

The reason why it's interesting to see this all play out like the WWE is based on one simple fact. They're branching out into another form of entertainment. It's quite flattering if you are Vince. Boxing didn't really ever take it this far. Not only that, but it's UFC vs Boxing. We're talking cross brand in a way the WWE can't duplicate.

By the way Mayweather is going to knock Connor out. This isn't MMA. It's a boxing match. Connor isn't a boxer, he is a fighter. Does he realize he is going up against one of the best of all time? Connor is playing the heel role well because he really has the hype train going. That's what the heel does best. Talks a whole bunch of shit and then gets their ass handed to them.
