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.

Trivia

The show was originally titled "Teenage Wasteland" or "The Kids are Alright" but those were songs by The Who and, legally, Fox couldn't get permission to use them. They renamed the show "Feelin' Alright" to show the focus groups. However, nobody really liked the name. After the focus groups airing, the audience were heard saying they really liked that show about the 70's or that 70's show - and the name stuck.
