KNUCKLE UP #286: TUF 24 Finale of Seem + An Inspired Genius WME Way Back to the Future of Ice C.R.E.A.M

New, 2 comments

Literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his "one"-of-a-"kind" "perspective" to the most significant reason to be cheerful as 2016 comes to a close: a glimpse at the "invisible" hand of the WME as shifts and shunts around fights and approaches to fight games indicate that there's nothing more serious than the $4 bil they just spent. Total war. Total focus. From JONNY BONEY JONEY to the MYSTIC MONKEY McGREGOR and more importantly the glorious signifier of the change afoot: the TUF Finale 24. Believe it.

ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Sole Survivor"], KNUCKLE UP host and noter of the fact that you can't spell HOSTILE without HOST one more time into the breech steps and this time to talk more turkey about a sudden satori moment of realization: the unseen almost invisible hand of WME is shown. Or, do you really think stupid people would have thrown $4 billion at a "fading" franchise? Absolutely fucking not. Smell the coffee. If you can STAND to smell the coffee.
