Don’t you love coming here? One day we’re like “OMG NO NETWORK DEALS EVAR” and then the next day we’re saying Dana White is off trying to lock up a network deal as we speak. Well, we’re not saying that … it’s Dave Meltzer from his pay newsletter that’s saying that:
“[Dana] White after the [February 2] show said he was leaving for a week and hoped to come back having made a major television deal, saying either with a network or a pay station.”
I had pretty much written off the possibility of a network deal now that the Writer’s strike is toast, and I’m still pretty damned skeptical that anything will come of this. Dana White simply seems to be too hardcore about control to be willing to let some fucking network suits mess with his shit. And without the added leverage of the strike meaning the networks were stuck losing money showing endless reruns ….
As I said, I’m still skeptical. But fingers crossed something happens.
