Watch this never-before-seen Bjorn Rebney promo that Viacom REJECTED

Judging by everything that's being said on social media regarding Bjorn Rebney's departure from Bellator, the MMA world now has a clear picture on who the former CEO really was. Despite your opinion on Rebney, the guy thought highly of himself -- so highly that he actually commissioned Bobby Razak to create a promo called 'The Promoter' of him being as much of a 'bro' as possible to everyone in the Bellator promotion.

I first saw a rough draft of this promo on Razak's iPhone during a Glory event sometime last year. Things were blurry at the time, considering the fact that Razak thought it would be a great idea to take psilocybin mushrooms and get a front-row seat to men kicking other men inside of a ring. It was a novel idea at the time, but all the blood and sweat flinging in our direction didn't give me a greater sense of being or a better understanding of the universe. Nevertheless I did see this never-before-seen promo, and it's been hibernating on a hard drive ever since, well until now.

The story behind this promo is Bjorn Rebney wanted to show the media how great of a rapport he had with his staff and fighters. In order to do this he requested a slo-motion, behind-the-shoulder camera following him during an event with pre-scripted interactions with his staff. Once the video was done, Rebney tried to push this through Spike TV as another on-air promo, but the entire concept was immediately rejected by executives at Viacom.

Now, MiddleEasy is revealing this stuff to you, since we love you, all of you (even you too Bjorn Rebney).

I'm the creator of MiddleEasy and Nickelodeon's The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Just kidding about the Nickelodeon stuff, but that would be really cool.

So he fuckin' walked around and fake punched everyone, instead of saying hi or shaking their hand?

Jesus, how did he last this long?

First thing Coker needs to do is sign Paul Daley.

Hopefully the UFC will now have some decent competition with this tool gone.
