Regarding the Brock Lesnar in WWE Posts

I just wanted to take a few moments to address some of the complaints in the comments of Roth's Lesnar in the WWE posts.

  • As always, if you don't like something...feel free to not read it. I'll never understand the thing where people feel the need to go into comments and complain that they didn't want to read something. Why bother? Why take the time out of your life to then go into comments and argue about it?
  • We're also posting career retrospectives about Lesnar's time in MMA. It's not as though our coverage has been heavy on the WWE stuff, it's a post a day.
  • Lesnar's time in WWE is what made him the draw he is in MMA. Like...100%. It's what got him the positioning he did in the sport, it's what got him the opportunities he did and it's why people still care abut him. Covering some of he moments that made him a popular figure shouldn't be a big deal. Trust me, it isn't his amateur wrestling career that made him a star (although we have talked about that plenty here as well).
  • Not everything in MMA has to be super serious. Sometimes it's nice to step back and just have a little fun. If talking about Lesnar's WWE days isn't fun to you? AGAIN, feel free to not talk about it. For some of us it's a hoot.
  • No, we're not covering pro wrestling all the time here. But when it's a guy who was a successful pro wrestler where that background is a huge part of his mystique? One post a day is completely legitimate.

Before someone busts out a "if people have complained and you have to explain it, that means it's wrong and shouldn't be posted." The posts are getting a lot of attention and the majority of it is positive. But I do want to address any concerns people had.

People tend to think that complaining about editorial decisions is the same as "expressing a different opinion" when it's actually telling people who work very hard for little reward what to do. Which is just insulting and annoying.
