WWE has removed a congratulatory note posted on WWE.com late on Sunday regarding Brock Lesnar’s UFC Heavyweight Championship win. As well as congratulating Lesnar, WWE had also posted the following: “Critics have noted that many of the fights on the UFC pay-per-view ended in the first round, leaving UFC producers scrambling to fill the three-hour event with content. The dearth of hearty competition left many viewers to watch less prestigious under-card fights and only served to bolster claims that UFC pay-per-view events can often be a “crap shoot” in regards to filling the full three hours.” The article, which in my opinion should never have ever been posted in the first place, has now been removed by WWE. Whether that is due to the negative coverage the comments have received is unknown. Perhaps somebody reminded the powers that be of the disaster that was WWE’s ECW brand December to Dismember PPV in 2006, which ran shorter than usual WWE PPVs and was deemed an utter failure by all.
