I don't think that will give an answer if TV-14 works or not. You can't know it if it will work or not if you do it just one night. At least having a 2-3 months period with TV-14 rating.
But don't you wanna see wrestlers kiss Vince's ass? Or how about the two best women's wrestlers of the last 15 yrs, Trish and Lita, bark like a dog or fuck in the middle of ring respectively. Those dog barks really put Trish on the map, it was her break-out moment. To this day, ppl stop her on the sidewalk and ask her to bark like a dog for old times' sake.
And let us never forget Triple H fucking a mannequin. I missed the good ole days. If Cena fucked a mannequin, the ratings would skyrocket. Or better yet, why not have Punk take a shit on a dead kangaroo? Its always about pushing the edge. Why not make it two dead kangaroos who were having homosexual intercourse while wearing foam middle fingers?
The only problem is that you listed segments after the end of WCW/ECW, Monday Night Wars what also means end of the Attitude Era. Those segments happened when the wrestling boom was over, most fans left after the death of WCW and ECW and WWE made nonsense television in a desperate attempt to get this fans back with pseudo Attitude Era.
mid96-April 2001: TV14 the right way
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.
Well, there was also no reason to fix something when WWE decided to be PG
