Now unless wrestling becomes like the AE again, it will not reach another popular era and is likely going to fade out with its dying popularity while MMA/UFC is on the way in. And we all know another AE wont happen because the wrestlers can't just jump from cells, land on thumbtacks, take chair shots to the head or blade every other week since the effort is more put into stopping deaths at a young age rather than pushing the wrestlers towards the edge.
They need to lighten up on the pg content, and they need more than 1 larger than life character with some ground breaking story lines. The key problem was messing up with the OVER talent that they already had and using that generation to put over this one that is coming up, and so on. Now they're all in TNA or japan, and HHH and Taker are still main eventing MANIA. It just seems like WWE is starting from scratch and this strong PG content is seriously holding the new guys back, not to mention the shit booking. Look at PTP, they lost AW, and now they're not as interesting as when they first had AW join there team, road is rocky again.

There's a horrible fluctuating pattern going on in the WWE, there's another example, and it's a pretty sad example, which is Miz.

KARLA LOPEZ, THE HOTTEST MODEL/ACTRESS ALIVE. Sheamus, Swagger, Wade, Dixie, Cesaro, Sami, DB, RKO, Drew, Del Rio, Cody, Punk, AJ LEE, Athena, Jasmin Areebi, Becky / (SIG CRED: Abrown/A$AP/Sol Katti) CHAMPviaDQ = Great GFX.
