Luger on whether he’s pleased with WWE’s PG direction: “I’m very happy with the direction WWE is taking. I actually work behind the scenes with them now again and with their wellness club, I council a lot of their athletes on nutrition, wellness, exercise and taking care of their bodies. Their organization is really moving forward with that. I commend them on that. But also, they changed their ratings to PG content and more family orientated."

"The athletes now are better than ever and I was at Wrestlemania in Atlanta a few weeks back. The production quality and the athletes are incredible but they just want to make sure it’s family viewer friendly like the old Saturday night TBS days……those were the late 80′s and early 90′s when people would tune in on Saturday nights with the whole family and people say they miss that so I’m very excited with the direction that WWE is taking now and they’re definitely heading in the right direction in my opinion."
