NXT News: TV-14 Rating, Filming At FCW, Otunga’s Wedding


WWE programming is rated TV-PG and acceptable for the whole family, but Tuesday’s WWE NXT debut on SyFy was actually rated TV-14 (“Parents strongly cautioned”). According to WWE, the TV-14 rating was an error. A WWE spokesman told the Hartford Courant, “There was a miscommunication between SyFy and the programming guides. All of our programming is PG.”

WWE will be filming a lot of NXT segments at the Florida Championship Wrestling gym in Tampa, Florida. This comes as a blessing to Steve Keirn, who runs FCW, since WWE has paid for a lot of upgrades to the gym and to the production equipment.

WWE NXT rookie David Otunga, who has long been engaged to Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson, told E! that he would be open to marrying the one-time “American Idol” finalist in a wrestling ring.”We could do that,” said Otunga. “I don’t know if Jennifer would go for it, but I’d be up for it.”
