Shad Gaspard Says WWE Isn't PG, Compares Wrestling On TV To Pornography
Cryme Tyme member Shad Gaspard said that while WWE pushes a PG-rated product, the combination of violence and scantily-clad women does not make it one.
“Even though our show is PG it’s still for adults,” Gaspard told Mike Adren in an interview conducted late last year published today. “We have hot girls on there, we have guys beating the hell out of each other, you know, there is nothing PG about sex and violence.”
Gaspard said when he’s in the ring, he doesn’t think about being PG as he wants to enjoy performing, which he compares to watching pornography.
“You wanna watch someone who is enjoying what their doing. That’s why I watch [porn], that’s why all us guys watch it,” he said. “WWE is sports entertainment, and sports entertainment has to be enjoyable to the viewer. And if the viewer is tuning into PG and below then they’re not going to enjoy it.”
The 29-year-old grappler also revealed his admiration for WWE Divas, noting his love for “muscular and athletic girls.”
“The hottest Diva right now in my opinion is Eve Torres. I also think Beth Phoenix is a gorgeous women, an Amazon — she is the perfect combination of sleek smooth muscles and intelligence. She’s not a prissy girl. She is all woman.”
Shad shares similar sentiments for former Raw ring announcer Lilian Garcia, who parted ways with WWE this past September.
“Lilian has always been a good friend to me ever since I first came to WWE,” he said. “She always gave me great advice and would notice things I didn’t notice myself.”
“The first time she watched me walking out she came up to me afterward and said I looked like a little kid, so she told me to stand tall, puff my chest out, and I thought that was really nice of her.”
“She didn’t have to say anything to me at all. Lilian is a great person, a classy lady and I wish her the best of luck in her future.”
