    Mayweather makes his move

    Pretty boy has decided that a quick payday and theatrics is what he desires and not developing himself anymore as a fighter. He is smart though, he gets a quick, and massive, payday without tarnishing his legacy.

    I don't understand why the WWE would pay him so much for participating in their show? Do wrestling fans even care about Mayweather and do boxing fans watch WWE?
    I really hate that people get paid so much for no apparent reason. I need to figure out how to be worth something to the public. I even have to wait two years for my son to reach third grade so I can be on My Dad is Better Than Your Dad.

    PBF was the "coach" for the fighter from my gym on BET's Iron Ring. I'll have to talk to him about what he was like in person.

    It's all about getting mainstream pub and telling a compelling story (and providing a compelling reason to pay to see the conclusion on PPV) with a mainstream celebrity. If they pull this off correctly (like they did with Donald Trump last year or Mike Tyson years ago) they will easily make the money they're paying Mayweather back + more.

    The point of the event is to encourage fans of one to consume some of the other, duh.

    No, the point of the event is to create a spectacle, and for Floyd to make $20,000,000.

    I bet this is horrid for the WWE wrestlers moral. Hmmm, I will 'fight' for 30 min and make 20 million bucks while the other wrestlers don't make anything near that for traveling year round, being in constant pain, the chance of a serious injury.
    Being that I wanted to do pro wrestling for a bit, I thought it would be nothing compared to BJJ and kick boxing - well it's way more dangerous; there is no way I would do that.....ever.

    I posted a few pro-wrestling bits that Muhammad Ali did when he was still fighting a while back. It's cool when a serious fighter can put his ego aside for the sake of entertainment ( Although I bet the money makes that a little bit easier to do).

    I just hope for Big Show's sake that he doesn't kneel down again; it's become apparent that Mayweather isn't a world champ when it comes to pulling punches.
