It wasn't very smooth, but I have to say whilst I thought I would miss Goldberg, he really adds nothing to the show. Tiny amount of sentimental value but clearly replaceable and not had much issues with the commentary the past couple of events.
I'm sure even when Rogan goes he'll be missed, but they've got enough people there to fill in, Stann etc. without any detriment to the quality.
This is true. We all used to bitch at length about Goldie on here and I think you nalied it with the sentimental value. People also like to use anything as an excuse to rubbish the organisation.
For me, I'm not happy with it 'just being ok' with someone like Stann. It's really boring. I love when these guys bring extra hype to the event. Someone like a Bas, Rogan, Schiavello and the like are gonna bring stories and excitement in the times when the fights don't.
Great example was Rogan today talking about how he used to watch Anderson when he came through Pride and Cage Rage. They are old school hard core MMA authorities. I don't think these fighter commentators are.
