WWE Taking Hardline Stance On Social Media, Cena & Bella Appearance, Richard Reacts

- WWE is taking a hardline stance with new developmental talent, adding into contracts they will not tolerate inappropriate photos or videos on social media. Prior to signing, talent have to agree that no such content exists.

- Nikki Bella and John Cena are scheduled to appear at Comic Con in Austin, Texas over the weekend over November 22-24. The promotional poster for the appearance is online at this link.

- One thing I haven’t mentioned lately is my personal Facebook page. Make sure to friend me and keep the conversation going.

    A morality clause I’m sorry but that is ridiculous.
    WWE has no right to tell people what is “appropriate” to post online.
    It will especially be unfair for any female talent who may or may not have posted things in the past that some really narrow minded peaple would consider “inopropriate”.
    This is the trade off with WWE going PG.
    WWE feels they have to pander to the bloody “morality” police who complane about everything on tv and online in order to stay “family freindly” its ridiculous.

      Like it or not WWE superstars are public faces. They are heroes to children worldwide. How would you like your kids logging into twitter and seeing their heroes f bombing and starting fights? Or bullying? Like it’s ok. The only thing rediculous is you condemnation of it. It’s wrong that WWE feel compelled to monitor these pages and the guys don’t just know it. If they want to cuss and act like assholes then they can make private accounts.

        Your argument is plain silly what parent would let there 10 year old kid be on Twitter.
        Only teenagers would be at “risk” of so called “inoppriprite” content.
        And they see worse things in the schoolyard or at home then any tv or computer screen.
        WWE superstars and Divas are HUMAN BEINGS
        and its too much to ask HUMAN
        BEING to not be there adult selves and to police themselves 24/7 just in case a unsuperviced child might be watching

          Thank God you’ll never be in the limelight. If you’re an icon to millions it’s your responsibility to behave in a manner befitting such. Not to act like an ass in public and act like it’s ok. Maybe you do see worse elsewhere , where it’s unavoidable, but where it can be avoided it’s best to be avoided. It’s not even like this is a new thing. WWE have been governing workers tweets for ages. They can’t tweet profanities or when inebriated. This is just another step.

          • BIG M

            I wouldn’t want to be in the limelight if I had to keep people like you happy.
            Look in this day in age you can’t say anything about everything without offending someone who’s views a vastly different than yours so why try too.
            Just because someone has a level of fame you think they should give up everything us norms take for granted.
            Privacy, free
            expression
            And a right to your own opinion.
            What we have been posting on this subject could probably be considered”inoproprite” by the morality police would you not say its our right to post about this subject honestly or should we just keep our mouths shut and put ear mufs on kids and wrap them in bubble wrap and make them wear blinders so nothing ever touches them and they don’t learn anything about REAL life.

            Ok…you make some valid points but lets be real here. If your a celebrity and you choose to be in the eye of the public then you should not only have enough self respect to be a professional you should hold yourself to a higher standard to begin with. You should be humble to your fans for ‘bringing you to the dance’ so to speak. I know people should have the freedom to express and say what they want and how they want but there are right ways and wrong ways to do that. I do not have a twitter account or a facebook page. My choice. But if I did I wouldn’t post things I wouldn’t feel comfortable with someone of any age seeing. Why air dirty laundry on public websites? Why use foul language? Why be disrespectful? Would you go post something bad about your boss online just because you can? That would just be flat out stupid. Would you post an inappropriate picture of yourself online only to cry about it getting ‘stolen’ later? There would be no one else to blame but yourself for that. Kids shouldn’t be sheltered from the real world as you say but what we teach them today will impact them as adults later. I believe in freedom of speech and expression but have some common sense.

          • BIG M

            Im not saying they should be allowed to post things that are plain wrong.
            I just think WWE has no right to tell there employees what to say and when to say it on there employees own time.
            P.S. I don’t have Twitter or Facebook either in fact i think there moronic but if I did I would post WHATEVER THE HELL I WANTED (within reason) and WWE should trust there people to do the same.

          • WNW Fan

            Yes their on their own time but the problem is WWE cannot trust them. We are all human beings and we all make mistakes. I agree you would be free to post as you said whatever the hell you want but why make yourself look bad just because you can? I know you probably don’t care what people think but again use some common sense.

          • BIG M

            I said I would post what I want (WITHIN REASON).
            Meaning I would be completely honest but I would try to be tactful thats all you need to do in any platform where you get to express an opinion or a thought be honest but try to be tactful.
            And yes I don’t care what complete strangers think of me I could care less, they don’t know me I don’t know them.
            But its not about making yourself look good or bad its about being honest in every aspect of your life professional and personal.
            People all over the world are going around serving and/or swallowing BS thinking thats the correct way to conduct yourself in life I just don’t get that.
            My life motto is shoot straight, if it smells like crap then say its crap, just try to say it tactfully.
            Some people appreciate that about me others don’t but thats life not 1 person on this planet is liked by everyone they meet so I don’t try to be.

      believe it or not this is one of the most ” normal ” demands on a wwe contract..ive seen a developmental deal contract and some of the other things in it are even more ridiculous . do know that when you sign a wwe contract one of the terms is ,you have to give them ALL of the pictures you and your parents have of yourself as a baby/child ( im guessing so they can use them in dvd’s ,mags etc ) . and that once you sign your wwe contract you are not allowed any tattoos without their permission ..i know for a fact that nxt diva paige has a clause in her contract that states she is not allowed to have a tan , and that she has to stay looking really white ( im not making this up ) . im guessing sheamus probably has something like this too.
