I am really
enjoying your newsletter since receiving it for the
week or so. I
like the issues that you choose to make public. I
would like to
send my two cents in on some issues I've seen in the
I am a fan of
professional wrestling (not a mark), and have been
about 20 years.
(since I was eight) and I am a physical education
teacher for an
elementary school in Florida. Over the past five
years, I have
noticed something. The problem is not professional
itself. Tuesday mornings have become a tradition,
talking to some
of the kids about what Sting did, or Buff's mom
yelling at him,
etc. Professional wrestling has become somewhat of a
between the students and with me. And this pertains
because they are still, on the most part, good
good Vs bad, traditional pro wrestling.
I RARELY ever
have any problems with children imitating dangerous
wrestlers use. They are educated enough to know that
training, and I never allow them to say its fake

however, I have
had a problem with young children doing crotch chops

I believe it is
the parent's job to regulate what they watch after
10 pm, BUT
there's something the WWF does that goes against
theory. It was
stated in the newsletter that pro wrestling should
be viewed by
young children. If that's the case, consider the
shows laden with profanity

not be aimed at children. No more toys bearing WWF

looks like Mr. McMahon wants their money, also.
As far as the
Scott Hall issue goes: Yes we have seen drunks on TV

far as I can remember, the comedic portrayal stopped

Alcoholism is not funny. People
getting drunk and acting stupid can be humorous, but
not to the
point of it being a problem. Alcoholism is a serious
issue. If WCW
decides to use
this issue and resolve it in the public eye, such as
"real-life" intervention, then it may be an
decision. Bischoff has always said he wants family
Let's see how he handles this.
