If you thought it would be hard for the Japanese to top PRIDE as gayest MMA promotion name ever (second only to ZEST ), you was WRONG!
A few days back their was brief mention that the Heroes circuit would soon become extinct, while this is yet to be completely confirmed, reports have surfaced that this is in fact a close reality. “Dreams” as the new show is allegedly called with look to merge what some have dubbed “Zombie PRIDE” (Dream Stage Entertainment Crew) with K-1 Heroes and create a sort of default MMA leader in Japan. If this is in fact true, than I guess it would be good in some regards because we may be able to see shows like “Yarennoka!!” more frequently and hopefully with the same talent pool.
Maybe this is one of those things like the Wii where no one gets it when the name is announced but down the road it just makes obvious sense. But I dunno … HERO’S was cool if a bit strange in it’s usage of punctuation. I’d rather have kept that or made it combine with Pride into “HERO’S PRIDE” which would have been hella cool. Or at least to me it would have.
