Not saying wrestling isn't for adults, cuz I think it is, but it is absolutely for kids as well. It was the middle schoolers who lost their shit because a badass in a goatee was spilling beer everywhere and flipping off the audience. Other ppl loved it too, and that's great, but none of the stuff we've ever watched is 'mature programming.' Fucking in the middle of the ring, fucking a mannequin, kissing Vince's ass, Trish barking like a dog, 80 yr old giving birth to a hand, that was trash, it wasn never "mature." I was at WMania XIX, where Rock/Austin preceded Lesnar/Angle. Fans were leaving during Lesnar/Angle. Casual fans (the majority) come for the stars.
