    Kurt Angle did an interview with Meltzer/Alvarez & they were told they HAD to discuss Bellator as well.
    Since the site covers both MMA & Pro-Wrestling they had no issue but they were honest about the mandate

    Your opinions?

    It seems stupid for Spike to do that. It's not like TNA guys are MMA experts, so why force interviewers to ask them about it? It likely won't do anything to convice people to watch and there exists the possibility that the TNA guy will say something that does more harm than good (and vice versa if they force MMA guys to discuss TNA--probably even moreso).

    I agree
    Plus its just a lame way to shove something at fans
    I am glad that they were honest upfront that Spike forced them to talk Bellator

    It could just as easily backfire. If a pro wrestler wanted to be MMA...He or she wouldn't be pro wrestling. And vice versa. There could very easily be bad blood between these two forms of entertainment, especially from the wrestlers to the MMA guys. MMA has been brutalizing pro wrestling for years. It takes food straight out their mouths and money straight out their wallets.

    "YEAH! I LOVE BELLATOR! Order their PPVs instead of ours, I don't need the money or fame or fan appreciation."

    & the synergy just took a big hit

    The guy who was going to be the face of Spike (on both platforms) gets KO'd by a nobody
