i still say that vince has the money to start his own mma brand. he can afford good fighters, good people to run it for him. he could do the hyped up soap opera junk outside of the ring and have the fights be real inside. and all the fights can be inside the steel cage and he could have tournaments inside the elimination chamber

They already did something like it. I think it was called Brawl for All, and it was basically toughman boxing. It proved to be an embarrasment though and some of their bigger named dudes got hurt too. The first match was Bart Gunn vs. Butterbean, and Butterbean brutally Ko'd him in under 30 seconds if I remember correctly.

I read about this a while back. It was a headline about how one of there signed fighters is an ex-pornstar. They would be real MMA fights but scripted storylines would be interwoven. I loathe pro wrestling with a hatred that burns like the fire of a thousand suns. I'm not really sure who they are targeting here. Would this be a good guy/ bad guy type deal. It will crash and burn. That is a promise. One of two things will happen. They will realize how improbable it is to maintain cohesive storylines when no one can guarantee the outcome of any real fight. Or to abolish this problem they will start staging "fights" which will look absolutely ridiculous for MMA. This is one of those situations where I wish I had a time machine so I could go back to when the guy who thought this up was still in the womb and push his mom down some stairs. I don't take any blending of WWE (which I despise) and MMA (which I love) lightly.

that is true. If they were to try and mix real fights with fake storylines i am sure that it would get messed up many times over. So that would quickly go to shit. If they started rigging outcomes to fights it would be lame though. People would realize they are rigged and they would lose any and all hardcore MMA fans. Any fans they did have wouldnt be enough to support the brand.
