No time delay this year, HDNet will air ALL 9 hours of the DREAM NYE event LIVE

Many of you remember the frustrating ordeal that went down at last year’s Dynamite!! 2010 card and the rather extensive article I composed at 6:20 am on Friday morning that pointed every available finger towards HDNet and their nonsensical decision to tape delay the event by two hours. It was a mindblowing scenario that left many viewers perplex, frustrated and ready to destroy something beautiful inside their living room. We were all devoid of energy to really get that upset about it. Staying up for an entire night, fueled solely by highly-caffeinated energy drinks can do that to a person.

Well it looks like our article has influenced the team at HDNet to air all nine hours of DREAM’s NYE event live, without any tape delay. Kirik Jenness from the UG touched on the subject, and this afternoon I’ve confirmed with the HDNet Fight crew that there will not be in funny business, temporally at least. Here’s what the current card looks like and don’t forget that it all starts on December 30th at 10:00 pm PST and will end at around 7:00 am PST the next morning only on HDNet.
