The stand up to bullying may have something to do with Linda, but again, its a mentality thats sweeping alot of areas. The world has changed. Its not just the WWE thats doing this garbage. Disney, alot of kids shows. I saw Nick the other day with a program shockingly similar to 'be a star'. The same goes for a lot of channels and show
Its a mentality shift in all television aimed at younger audiences, and since the WWE is trying to clean up its image to attract the sponsors and present itself as a family friendly company, its taking part. Parents groups, sponsors, the FCC are not be underestimated.
World has changed, TV, movies and society has gone PG and PC. Look at the biggest music stars. The biebers and one directions. Even our favourite movies, the die hards and the Robocops. All PG 13 despite how ultra violent the originals were. And im pretty sure not all of them are running for congress.
The WWE has gone soft, but so has the rest of the world. This isnt the rock and roll 80s, this isnt the grunge metal anti cyberpunk 90s. This is the year 2012. And look around, everything has changed. Its all about money and thats what the WWE is after. And appealing to kids and healthy PR
is how you get that money
