WWE pulls edgier content:
Due to the ongoing political rhetoric against Linda McMahon and WWE’s pre-PG content, the company have began pulling edgier content from the WWE.com archives and other online platforms. Brian Flinn, WWE’s Vice President of Marketing and Communications told NBC:
“For years WWE has produced programming that is rated PG in primetime, and most recently rated G on Saturday mornings. To better reflect our current family-friendly brand of entertainment, WWE is removing some dated and edgier footage from digital platforms. Some of this footage has been misused in political environments without any context or explanation as to when it was produced. This damages the corporate reputation of our company.”
As well as from their own web properties, WWE have also been getting tougher on video sharing sites that have lots of older WWE footage on. “WWE is well within its rights to protect its intellectual property for fair use,” Flinn concluded.
Tammy Sytch arrested 3 times in week:
Wrestling personality Tammy Sytch, who performed for the then WWF as Sunny, appears to have “fallen off the wagon” and was arrested three times in a week. On the 11th, 12th and 13th, the former valet was arrested for strangling her boyfriend Damien Darling. The Indy wrestler took out a temporary restraining order after the first incident but Sunny kept coming back for more.
Sytch who has been dealing with alcohol issues since the death of her husband, wrestling star Chris Candido, only recently completed a stint in rehab courtesy of WWE, after a particular bad spell. It seems she’s yet to work through her problems.
