WWE SmackDown Rating, Kenn Doane Clarifies Tara Remarks, More
- Friday’s episode of WWE SmackDown did a 1.82 (1.8) cable rating, with 2.63 million viewers. The numbers were down 9% and 11% from the previous week, which had seen a jump from the norm. The show was #7 among cable shows for the night in overall viewers, #1 in the key male demos and #3 in teen males.
– Kenn Doane/Dykstra tweeted the following today: “People keep asking bout the tara deal. Me confused why read my interview and realize the time frame in which I wrote it sounded like she was with [John Cena] then. I know she dated him in  and that’s what I meant to say. I’ve known tara since I first got to wwe and she wasn’t with him at the time when all my shiz was going down. I should of put more thought into her part of my story. I didn’t cuz didn’t think it needed to be elaborated. Tara never dated [John Cena] when I was there only in 02 which I should of made clear.”
He continued, “Granted nobody should ever think anything negative of tara. Why the fuck do we call her tara? Her name is lisa.”
Doane said that after girlfriend Mickie James admitted to him in 2007 that she was involved in an affair with Cena, he asked who he believed was Cena’s Diva “road” girlfriend at the time if she was aware of the matter (who he then implicated as Varon in the interview). According to Doane, the woman told him she believed the affair to be true after having been ‘recently’ dumped by Cena.
