    That was by far more entertaing than the Embedded series which is past its prime and needs to retire. That felt like a breath of fresh air, the ESPN era is ?

    ESPN releases the ACTUAL highlights, and bringing in new content. WAY better than “UFC ON FOX.”

  14. Mack V says:

    Chael is the best trash talker

  15. Dave Studdaman says:

    The sexual tension between Claudia and Joanna is amazing!!!

  16. BacheIrani says:

    Funnily enough Ali got his antics from the wrestler Gorgeous George so he technically did not write the blueprint but he definitely raised the bar.

    • K B says:

      That’s fake though. Thats like saying the Rock is a better trashtalker than Ali ?

    • Ja Herra says:

      +K B no that is wrong try again

    • BacheIrani says:

      +K B Lol, my friend I didn’t compare their fighting abilities. I am sure there are people out there that will argue the Rock is a better trash talker then Ali. It is about being quick witted and good at improv. Yes wrestling is fake boxing/mma is real we all know that but you cannot discount the wrestlers trash talking abilities (Ric Flair, the Rock, Chris Jericho etc.). Ryan Reynolds (deadpool) is an actor but even in interviews you can see he has genuine quick wit and humour. Does that make him unfunny because he is an actor and what he does is fake?

    “It’s hard to break down my own stuff” – *Goes into great detail to break down his own stuff* Chael’s narcissism always amuses me xD
