Update on story regarding banning women with implants in Lousiana

After the piece on the web site that was in today's daily update on the emergency rule passed yesterday by the Louisiana Boxing and Wrestling Commission, the WWE legal team, unaware of the law, contacted the commission earlier today.

The commission has now stated that the rule will be limited to only boxing and MMA, and not for pro wrestling, which they also regulate, according to sources within WWE.

The rule was only in effect for 60 days at this point, but could be made permanent in November.  WrestleMania, as well as all the satellite shows from smaller groups, which would also include a number of women's matches, are scheduled for April in Louisiana.  A rule that encompassed pro wrestling would have affected a number of potential participants.
