"The prelims we do air, there's only supposed to be two," White said. "Time-wise, it's impossible to pull off three if they all go to the distance. I'm going to roll the dice on this thing."
I guess Dana's math of 5 x 3 = 15 x 2 = 1 hour.....hmmm
I don't know why they want you to think the prelims are live. Why they need promos for the prelims as well as their entrances to the ring....and a stupid fucking pre-fight interview with the people in the main event for last minute PPV hype before the fight.
Make it about the fights, not the event. 45 minutes of straight up fights....followed by 15 minutes of prefight hype (smoke/food/bathroom break) then PPV.
I mean if they want to make it more of a tease...tape the most entertaining prelim and only show the first round or two (or before the fighter is submitted or KOd) then stop playing it and say if you want to continue watching this fight, tune into the PPV....that would be a jerk move....but at least it would make for more fights on TV.
I am pissed that the past WEC event....they still haven't released most of the prelims...for UFC fights I have to wait several hours before I can watch the prelims....sucks....wish we could have 5 hour PPV events....kinda why I like Sengoku/DREAM....they have the whole event...announcers and guests actually have to fill in time and talk about the events....but I think that might reveal to the rest of the world that Goldberg is a useless tool.
