I caught this on pwinsider:

WWE management was very upset when the Heart Throbs went off into controversial areas last week on the show and as a result they were released.

What exactly happened? Did anybody catch that show? What do they mean by controversial areas?

Yeah, I'm kind of wondering what was said. Does anybody here actually listen to Byte This? Think I caught two episodes like three or four years ago...

Maybe they used their Throbometers to help find their push.

They were on WWE En Espanol that day too. It looks that also has been taken down. Or at least, I can find no references to them in the link on that page. (Disclaimer: I took two years of Spanish in high school, but I'm not very good.)

Impactwrestling.com says "The Heart Throbs just appeared on WWE's Byte This program this past Wednesday night. The show was totally out of control with the guys in character doing a love game." PWInsider says that "the Throbs had their own dating show on the program and they were the contestants as well." Another site mentioned that a caller used a racial slur on air, and maybe that's why it was taken down.

I'm surprised no trace of a copy of the show turned up. No one watches Byte This live?



In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.

From Meltzer's update today:

"After what happened where The Heart Throbs did a skit where they nearly undressed Todd Grisham, it looks like Byte This may be dropped by WWE due to lack of control. At least that was the talk last night. Definitely, due to all the problems mentioned each week, won't be going live."

I never catch Byte This live...I prefer to watch the archives, so that I can watch what I want, and avoid the stuff that bores me.

I would have loved to have seen the Heartthrobs show, though. We'll just have to wait until they show up on a wrestling talk show or something to hear their side of the story.

How can they get fired for something WWE does on their TV shows on a regular basis?

When did Byte This become a family program?

The Real Dirt on Byte This!
February 21, 2006

Despite several erroneous reports circulating on the Internet, WWE.com has not cancelled Byte This! Additionally, the producer of the weekly webcast has not been fired, and the Heart Throbs were not released specifically for their performance on the show.

Byte This! is currently on hiatus and is being reconceived as part of a new slate of digital WWE.com content to be unveiled soon. Stay logged on to WWE.com for more information on the new Byte This! as it becomes available.

Have they put the show back up yet? No? Then pardon my skepticism. ;-)

Has anyone at all seen this episode yet? It has to be the most rare video for wrestling fans currently. Youd think that almost 2 weeks later someone would have came across a copy of it. Everyone wants to see exactly what went down, I know I do and i could give 2 shits about the heartthrobs or byte this.

That would require people watching Byte This live. Which looks like no one does.

So apparently Booker T and Batista had a "fight" while shooting a SummerSlam commercial today in Encino, CA. So sez WWE.com. I'm assuming this is kayfabe...not a bad way to start an angle between the two, King of the Ring notwithstanding.
