No one or nothing right now really crosses the line in terms of being more adult-oriented. It's a pretty clean show.
It is and it's something I dislike about 2012 Impact Wrestling. Prefer the edgier red TNA brand. The thing is: They can go edgier when they want it, because the show is still officially TV-14.

One question: Why is wrestling supposed to be a family show nowadays? I got interested in pro wrestling when I wasn't allowed to see it (I was around 12 when I started watching the attitude). An "edgy" and not "clean" program interests the older kids more than something has been made to cater them as the minority of the audience (this is exactly what WWE does).
