WWE

Puts the Squeeze on

Man Nipples

3/28/2008 6:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nipplegate 2008 has broken out in Florida! Wrestlers John Cena, Triple H, Randy Orton and Big Show are all proudly baring their nipple-free chests on a huge banner in downtown Orlando. Wait, what?


City officials met with some WWE suits to figure out how to keep the wrestling poster from looking "too provocative." The outcome - the WWE slammed, er, airbrushed the nipples into oblivion. Billboard malfunction!

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Mayor Buddy Dyer liked the nipple-free poster and added that there was some sort of city ordinance that banned public display of male nipples. For the love of Janet Jackson! But according to the city's press secretary no such ordinance exists.

Only one banner was targeted for nipple eradication. However, buses all over town are still cruising the streets baring the original posters of the wrestlers --male nipples and all. Flaunt 'em if you got 'em! For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

Hey Mayor!

I think women in Florida show waaaaaaaaaaaay too much skin. How 'bout we put in burqas like the dames in Afghanistan?

I heard there is a huge street party in West Florida Saturday. Does this pertain to that? Man nipples? NO! Turn off your headlights fellas.

What's this?    

LOLOLOLOL - I'm laughing my own nipples off right now! Thanks TMZ for making me laugh so hard! Airbrushing men's nipples - lolol - now they just look like giant men with retarded body builds! One year, in Texas, we had a local furniture store that painted the side of their delivery trucks with giant advertisements for the WWF event coming to town. I just don't remember any airbrushed nipples though - I was too busy trying to stay on the road after seeing the advertisement! LOL
