I actually thought they'd run Nunes vs Pena 3. I wish Valentina would fight Nunes again just to draw some more attention on both of them. Every time they fight someone else, I have no passion to watch them fight.
Last time I read an article, the developmental recruits with zero experience get paid like 60k starting. They usually know by a 6 to 12 months if you are cut for the business or not. All they do is train and practice. They also offer financial courses and teach them how to build a brand. Most are fresh outta school former athletes. I think they are more relax on letting them make money on the side with fan sites, twitch, cameo, etc given approval from wwe. Does ufc allow that?I don’t think any of us know what the contract/pay for a WWE NXT prospect is (if you do plz share).
But the upside for merchandise and pay is higher for a WWE wrestler. Obviously, that’s a very physically demanding profession. Mortality rates are crazy.
I remember doing physical therapy and John Cena was a patient with my PT. He had lambos and other fancy cars. This was 2013, you could tell he had bread.
But it’s never a fair comparison to professional wrestling as that’s a cut throat industry.
Matt has done interviews and spoke on it. Think there may be one with Ariel still on yt. Dana said he would never make 100k when he fired him for weed.I wish a MMA journalist would interview Matt Riddle to compare fighting in the UFC and wrestling in the WWE.
Ronda not talking to nobody. Brock felt a certain way and left MMA to wrestle part time.
Yeah Brock has both the WWE and UFC by the ballsMatt has done interviews and spoke on it. Think there may be one with Ariel still on yt. Dana said he would never make 100k when he fired him for weed.
Brock a smart business man. He leveraged both sides and got the bag for working less.
It's actually a sneaky good card when you look at the lineup even outside the two titles (assuming you mean 283), Magny/Burns could be a war and if Burns is able to stop the takedowns I don't see how he doesn't connect with a flush shot to put out Neil. Craig/Walker could also be a banger. Then you also have the return of Robocop but its unfortunate Tavares had to pull out but I look forward to seeing him back in the octagon regardless.Keep forgetting about this card 😂😂
I'd like to see Nunes-Val a 3rd time as the 2nd was so close. If both make quick work of their next foes I could see the trilogy being setup as the co-main for International Fight Week.Also strangely….the co mains could setup a possible matchup later in the year for female GOAT. 👀
And whoever wins the main sets up a possible matchup later in the year for HW GOAT not named Francis.
