I think it makes sense but the execution could have been better. You can't spend a whole show not mentioning manny's death the way you can some retired fighter's. But it would disrespectful to do it any other time then before the mIn event. It might have been hbo's intrusion not to mention the video tribute so as to have more effect when they did finally show it but obviously that was a little confusing for some.
