King Mo compares Zuffa employment to slavery

I’ve got the perfect idea for King Mo’s pro wrestling character. He can pop out from under the ring during various promos to smash people with a steel chair while screaming “THAT’S RACIST!”

“Zuffa’s okay. They’re alright if you like working long days … in a hot field, asking, begging for water. But with Bellator, I’m in the A.C., sippin’ cold lemonade, gettin’ massages. It’s a big difference. You know, I think Zuffa has a lot of people, and they just look at fighters as numbers. It’s a business. They’re trying to make money. But I feel like Bellator, we’re a lot closer family, and the people are more personable.”

True, half the dudes in Strikeforce spent most of their time feeling like a less famous Ronda Rousey sitting by the phone waiting for her beau to call, even after Zuffa took over. But comparing working for them to slavery? Really? He barely worked for Zuffa at all and flamed out the way he did and they’re the jerks? Sure man. Can’t wait to see how you hang in the TNA lockerroom.

Speaking of TNA, what’s the plan there? Head-honchette Dixie Carter:

“It’ll be TNA first. He won’t join Bellator until they go on Spike in 2013. But the most important thing is his health. Once he’s healthy, then we’ll make a decision on when he debuts with us. Hopefully, it’ll be sooner than later, but the key thing is to get him healthy. It’s all about his health though. We want to introduce him the right way, and I think today’s been a great start, tonight and everything else, we’re really excited.”

Mo had knee surgery in February that led to a battle with life threatening staph, which makes it a bit complicated figuring out how long until he’ll be ready to step into the wrasslin ring. I’m sure he’ll stay in the news until then, though, talking about how everyone screwed him over and how he could totally beat Jon Jones.
