Re: WWE willl never get edgy again
Actually, come to think of it, that Punk/Austin interview felt relatively edgy to me, especially that awkward handshake at the end. It's been a while since WWE did an interview segment full of that kind of understated, simmering violence. Lesnar's little promotional clips before ER felt that way too (all hilariously undercut by the contract signing, of course). Maybe all WWE needs is to freshen up its approach to staging in a meaningful way. Everything feels like it's written off a template these days, like their script is just a big madlibs activity book. Nothing can feel dangerous that way.
