On the WWE Corporate site, they updated their "Talent Wellness" section to "Talent Programs and Policies".

They have added a "Professional Development Summary" section which I believe has been reported before.

They also added a new policy which I am not sure if it's more recent or been around for a while.

"WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, child abuse and sexual assault. Upon arrest for such misconduct, a WWE talent will be immediately suspended. Upon conviction for such misconduct, a WWE talent will be immediately terminated.

WWE’s ability to fine, suspend or terminate a WWE talent will not be, however, limited or compromised in any manner in the event incontrovertible evidence of such illegal misconduct is presented to WWE. Section 9.13(a) of the WWE booking contract, commonly known as the “morals clause”, provides WWE with broad discretion and authority to act under such circumstances."

If a WWE Superstar uses a foreign object to clobber his old lady with, does this cancel out the domestic violence?

Ric Flair's wife would never make it in WWE now.

Does this mean we will never see the "At home with Dr. D David Schultz" videos on the Network now?

On a serious note, it's good to see them take a pro-active approach to this issue in light of what the N.F.L. has been going through.
More often than not the W.W.E. and major league sports wait until something happens to one of their talents before implementing rules/penalties to deal with them. At least they're getting out front of this serious problem in society.
Would be interesting to see everything play out if say a top talent such as Cena, Lesnar, 'Taker, Orton, etc; were to be implicated in a child/domestic abuse scandal.
Do you think T.N.A. would touch Cena if W.W.E. actually followed through with their policies and fired him if he got caught smacking his girlfriend/wife? If T.N.A. were to pass, do you think New Japan would hire him up?

TNA would hire wife-beater Cena in two seconds.
As for giving Vince credit for being on the forefront of anything, I disagree.  They've always been reactionary over there, whether it's pimping their Twitter crap, breast-cancer awareness, domestic violence, say no to drugs, whatever.  I suppose it's better than nothing since their demographics of white trash meatballs probably ranks higher in domestic violence incidents than white collar Americana (lack of education....there have been studies done...nothing to argue on that point...not saying guys in suits dont come home and smack their women around, but it happens more often in lower income homes).  But as for Vince all of a sudden implementing domestic violence awareness a month after the shit hits the fan with the NFL, big eyeroll time.

You think they'd hire that Breaking Bad toy with the little bag of blue meth?

I'd like to think that Dixie and Co; would not only hire that little toy with the little bag of blue meth, but also smoke that little bag of blue meth. I would pay $14.98 to watch Dixie and that little toy smoke that little bag of blue meth...together...Live on Pay-per-view.

In an article on The Washington Post's website about the creation of WWE's policy against domestic abuse for its performers, WWE issued the following statement:

"We have watched and learned from what has unfolded in the NFL, and we felt it was important to establish a zero tolerance policy for domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse. We are in the midst of updating our employee code of conduct to reflect the same zero tolerance policy."
