    From the amount of money thats being made at these shows....
    and the amount of money the fighters make out of it, it makes me want to throw up.
    Fuck Lorenzo and Frank. They do the same damn thing to their employees and executives at their hotel properties. It's bullshit.. They got the lockdown and they underpay. The fighters are putting on the shows...Without them your organization is shit.

    Rampage looked really sad in dana's video blog smiling while deciding the new car he was buying with his KO of the night bonus.

    The pay is just fucking fine.

    I don't think it is. He has potential and more money equals better training. they are investing in the future of the HW div

    Exactly! Baseball wasn't handing out $120 million contracts 20 or 30 years years ago. I believe some time in the late 70's Nolan Ryan became the first player to get a million. Shit takes time.
