Dante Merlo sent along the following:

Good morning. I live in New York City and I just want to pass along something real intresting from the New York Post newspaper. The article is titled "WWE finds women love a (wrestling) ring.

"It turns out that women have a taste for headlocks and body slams, too." WWE female viewers*: Collega-age range:+34%  25-34 age group:+13.7%  Over 50 age group:+23%.

The article goes on as: "Given the WWE’s reputation as master packagers and its program’s consistently high overall rationgs -Smackdown is one of the highest rated shows in all of cable…." 

Sorry if to long. Just thought I pass along. Might be interesting to know that females are taking a liking to wrestling now more than ever. -Dante Merlo
