Diva Too Risque For WWE’s New Kids Show?, Saturday Update On Jerry “The King” Lawler
– It would appear that Rosa Mendes is too risqué for WWE’s new kid-friendly program on The CW, Saturday Morning Slam. The sultry manager was nowhere to be found on this morning’s show when her men, Primo and Epico, took on Kofi Kingston and R-Truth in a tag team match. The match was taped before last week’s SmackDown taping.
The show is rated TV-G, a level lower than WWE’s general TV-PG rating. Due to the program being aimed specifically at children, it does not feature any moves or holds aimed at the neck due to what is seen as their violent nature.
– WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler continues to recover after suffering a heart attack on Raw Monday. Jim Ross provided an update on the wrestling legend’s health as of Saturday.
He tweeted, “@JerryLawler still hospitalized in Montreal but doing well. Better every day. Just needs to go slow & heal. Hopefully, will go home nx wk.”
Ross also said that Lawler will not be on hand for tomorrow night’s Night of Champions pay-per-view event: “King will NOT be @ NOC PPV. He had a HEART ATTACK Mon. Ask ur parents 2 explain. Cole won’t be going solo. I Suggest u watch.”
In regards to whether WWE will show support for Lawler this Monday on Raw, he said, “Likely an update, well wishes, paycheck.”
