That Wrestling Show - S1-E15

Corrected entry: In the locker room, The Rock, playing father Rocky Johnson, uses the phrase "sports entertainment." That euphemism wasn't created until the 1990s.

Correction: It's intentional and a joke. Professional wrestling is "sports entertainment" as opposed to a "sport." I have always found the scene pretty humorous because of the phrasing. Besides which, there is no reason why Rocky cannot use the euphemism in the '70s. They are just words that he believes describes his business. It's not like he referred to a "laptop computer", something that would have been totally unknown in the 70s.
