As to the World Wide Entertainment thing - I didn't even notice it until it was brought up here. That's what they're probablly hopiing for - no one noticing.
You're confusing his actions (lying, cheating, stealing) with his motivations (beating his demons, doing it for his family). I, for one, think this is dynamite booking. Basically, the WWE is saying, "Here's this guy.
