- 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.”

    of course Cole Won’t be Solo, That would be a torture worst than listening to Flo Rida’s Crap on WM28

    I’m not sure if Vince or anyone remembers Sensational Sherri wearing some pretty revealing gear and getting punched and atomic dropped by Hogan quite regularly in 1989…yet Rosa Mendes in 2012 is considered too ‘risque’? Ridiculous.

    People don’t like to hear it, but JR is something of a jerk. Just because he’s a great announcer doesn’t mean he’s a saint. That’s just the truth.

    I understand making spelling mistakes happens but damn! Can you please try and not sound so cool so that its somewhat easier to understand what you’re typing.

    Maybe JBL will be making his return to commentary.

  • D2K

    I kinda agree that comment was unnecessary. If someone did ask him a question that stupid it certainly isn’t worth a response. But he does take a lot of pot shots on his blog.

    I agree @DEE1ANDONLY. I also agree w/the WWE classifying Rosa as being too risque for their new kids show. For some strange reason whenever I see her, I get a two-cent hooker vibe. :(

    WWE is becoming a sham! I understand the idea of a PG product and think it could work but come on! Was it too much when Mufasa and Bambis mom died? Of course not as much as those were tear jerking moments. No one felt its something kids shouldn’t see. How about Tom and Jerry the two of them commited way more violent acts in a slapstick way than anything we could see in the WWE was that too much? I rest my case!

    All of gods blessings to Jerry, JR is the man, NOC will be Cole and JR. Even though I don’t like him, I think Cole did a gr8 job Monday. It is a shame it took King having a heart attack to shut Cole up, Lol.

    @paul i dont think hes tryin to b an asshole i think its when ppl ask him stupid ass questions like will the king b at NOC or sum personally i wood b the same way if sum asked me stupid ass questions bt its good dat the king is brecovering nicely hope that contiues n as for rosa hey i can kinda understand n #imjustsayin

  • Jimbo

    JR is always a dick on twitter and his blog.

  • Paul E Not-so-Dangerously

    Why does Ross always have to be an asshole on twitter?

  • Jay

    Sounds like Jim Ross is going to be commentating…
