That wouldn't cause WWE to go PG. That cause them to book their shows better and have a better wrestling product.

Huge drop in toy sales
Since 2010 they have been up significantly. Mattel rebooted them and gave them much more exposure in stores.

Huge drop in sales of child friendly babyfaces (e.g Cena, Ryder, Santino, Mysterio, Cara etc)
They keep buying Cena gear. WWE shop orders are strong.

Losing several sponsors
Since moving to PG they gained new family friendly sponsors: 7-Eleven, Mars, Mattel etc. They are working with ABC family, not to mention the Scooby Doo franchise under Warner Bros.

The CW drops WWE
Saturday Morning Slam has proven another success.
This is the only logical answer I saw in this thread.

Because what's the point of fixing something that isn't broken? There's no problem with the rating with the show, the problem is Vince and Creative not knowing how to write compelling storylines or book talent anymore. That's the thing a lot of you don't realize. PG isn't the problem.

Thank you. Too bad so many people here can't stop being so ignorant and think a little further than, "PG IS Y DIZ SUCKZSZ!!!1!"

If it takes obsessive cursing,blood, and T&A for you to be entertained, then you need to grow up.

BTW, the best year for wrestling IMO ('97) was PG. All PG.
Thank you, as well.

Tv-14 =/= A good product. They still need good writers/booking to make the product better. They would still need wrestlers that actually have gimmicks and not just a name in some wrestling gear. As much as I loved the AE, they're were some fucking terrible moments as well. And we don't need a AE 2.0 now to have a good product.
Exactly, blood, gore, and T&A don't make a good wrestling show. That's the point so many don't get. It takes good writing and talented wrestlers.

Couldn't have said it better myself.
