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!

Um, everybody has nipples.  I don't know of anyone who gets "provoked" by man nipples, except maybe uptight law makers.  Just watch, in 2 months we"ll find out the mayor has a thing for shirtless oily men.

LMAO!! I would of thought the big greased up men in shinny leatards would of been more provocative then their nipples. People are getting nuttier and nuttier. I'm done drinking the water in the U.S of A.

they cut out the nipples, but are not afraid to have bra and panties matches on nearly every week basis???? they need to worry about more important things in the business than man boobies or "moobies" they are have a "bunnymania" match at wrestlemania and they will be wearing next to nothing. this is bizarre
