Found February 07, 2012 on Wrestling Truth:
PLAYERS: Jay Leno

- As part of the ongoing storyline WWE Board of Directors have decided to keep John Laurinaitis as Raw’s Interim General Manager.

- WWE have fired back at a Journal Inquirer and Register Citizen journalist, Chris Powell, who wrote “Maybe in time Connecticut will consider the pornography and mock violence of the wrestling business…” in one of his columns.

WWE’s letter reads:

Although this was an opinion piece, your position as managing editor of the Journal Inquirer would ethically require you to report the facts accurately and not distort the truth. For future editorials and news stories that may pertain to WWE, we wanted to reiterate the facts to you so you clearly understand our programming content and the type of entertainment we provide to our more than 300,000 fans in the State of Connecticut.

All WWE television programming features only TV-PG content as rated not by us, but by the network TV distributors and their standards and practices departments. WWE weekly programming has always appeared on basic cable or broadcast television. As any casual television viewer knows, your description of our programming, based on the Federal Communications Commission rules alone, would not be permitted on free television or basic cable. To exemplify WWE’s TV-PG brand, children’s favorite “The Muppets” recently made special guest star appearances on “Monday Night Raw,” which airs on USA Network, and on our annual holiday special, “Tribute to the Troops,” which aired on NBC.

- During a recent interview with the Belfast Telegraph, The Rock discussed his love live among other topics:

“I was so fortunate to have fallen in love once. To fall in love again? That’s a hard thing to do twice in the position I’m in. I’m one lucky son of a b—-.”

- Speaking of The Rock, here is his appearance from last night on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. Note, the clips might not play if you’re using a non US IP address.
