Default Re: WWE willl never get edgy again

I have no idea what Linda's motivation for politics is - but that's neither here nor there. The SPECIFIC things the Democratic candidate criticized (the degrading content from the 'edgy' eras, looking the other way as wrestlers used steroids and drugs) are valid criticisms of a product largely aimed at children. And it's not a new thing - WWE has always had a large youth audience.

With the right bookers and talent that knows how to improv & perform storylines, the WWE could be relevant to a more mature audience. There are lots of movies that are ostensibly made for kids, but have stories that touch or amuse the adults that go with them. Michiko Kakutani is probably never going to give a Mick Foley book a glowing review, but the two options don't have to be Barney or South Park.
