    Good maybe they’ll do some moderating around here, and get rid of some of the trash on this site.

  • Adam

    It should help to improve the professionalism of the site, and provide more resources so there is more and better quality articles, and hopefully a better layout.

  • Chelsii.

    And maybe they’ll hire me

    How is a wrestling news site a natural fit to their “MMA portfolio?”

  • Austin

    Austin liked Vagina on Facebook

  • Anonymous Raw GM

    So this is why we see so many fb ads on comment section.. Well this sucks.. fuck you Rebellion…

  • Roger

    Sigh… I always liked the way that this site was seedy and a little dirty. I’m certainly not interested in a ‘professional makeover’ if it means that everything is linked with Facebook and pointless spam.

  • The Big B
