This may be the dumbest controversy yet - and that is saying a lot.
Are we suggesting that Okie State should forego dollars in the hope that a benevolent billion dollar corporation wants to grow wrestling?
If ESPN wanted the dual they could have reached out to Flo and made an offer. As could have Fox, etc. They had no interest. Perhaps if they had, then Flo could have considered trading the rights for cash and a kicker of goodwill towards wrestling. The offer didn't come from what we are hearing.
WRT Craig Sesker - If you are a Wrestling journalist and you do not have FloWrestling, then you aren't really investing in your career. If a friend had to tell you Lee got pinned - then you aren't really paying attention to the 1,000 free tweets that sent out the clarion call. My guess is it was Iowa getting bitch-slapped that really ruined his day.
