You got to think, this is a shit card. Guarenteed Lampley has something major planned.

I'm sure that they will have a proper tribute... and I'm also sure that they will have it when the crew that the worked with is there to do it. It will be on a WCB broadcast. No doubt about it, with Lampley leading the way.

Sounds.. underwhelming. Surely something else to come at a later date.

This thread is like Bizarro World. There was a video tribute, the announcer gave some kind words and they had a moment of silence for the 10 count.

This wasn't posted after that tribute. HBO made a strange choice to give it a very, very brief mention early in the show and then they went back for the tribute. It was timed badly.

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.
