    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Worked Pride matches?

    This was brought up in another thread. I believe we have all heard the rumors that Pride works/has worked fights. I did a search and didn't find a topic for it, so I decided to create one.

    Focus: What fights have been rumored to be works? Is there any proof of Pride actually working fights? I've always heard rumors, but I've never really seen/read any proof of this happening. Juicy stories relating to this topic but about different organizations would also be appreciated.

    Edit -- Also, what specifically was suspicious about the fight(s) you are referencing for them to be rumored as works?

    I don't know about Pride, but I've heard Dan Severn vs Shannon Ritch is a work.

    I love watching that fight, because after Coleman taps to that heel hook, Bas is actually speechless. The commentators just don't know what to say. It does look fishy, but that doesn't necessarily equal a worked fight. Although it does lean towards that conclusion.

    LOL, that was way too obvious to be a fix.

    Sakuraba/Mezger. I suppose it wasn't necessarily a work, but the judges were clearly ruling in favor of Sakuraba. Worst judges decision (to call the first round a draw) that I've ever seen.

    That was bullshit. They wanted Saku to win so bad thtat they contorted the rules. Fucking Shamrock was right to tell him to leave. He won that fight so bad.
