Default 1990s PG Era...

Just watched a shoot interview with Bret Hart where he discusses the PG Era of the late 80s and early 90s to today's. The problem with our current era is not being PG, but how they conduct themselves and how they book things. You can be PG and still have great matches, WWE doesn't need blood, cussing and half-naked women dancing around to be good and entertaining.

We have to admit, that those of us who are older got hooked onto wrestling as kids during the PG Era of the late 80s and early 90s. There was just something special about it. Sure there were still smarks back then, but if it weren't for marks and the children (like us back in the day), I would have to say the business wouldn't be where it was during the Attitude Era.

Shawn Michaels vs. 123 Kid in 1993 with interference from Razor Ramon & Diesel:

of course now we know about the Klique and that whole backstage situation, but as kids we didn't know and didn't care, and this (pretty PG) match captivated us, and the skill of Michaels & Waltman was enough to turn this PG show into something that was magical for us.

You also have Summerslam 1993 with the Lawler-Bret feud, part of the PG Era and still was amazing:

I grew up idolizing Hulk Hogan & Bret Hart, and later HBK, Taker, Razor & 123 Kid; my brother idolized Sting (and Hogan) and had his poster in his room.

WWE doesn't have to be Rated R to be good, it can be PG, it just has to be done well. Not everything needs to be blood, guts & sex...

^Though to be fair..PG can have those 3 things you mentioned. Look at so many tv shows rated PG(especially ones that air on a channel like CBS,ABC,FOX), if people saw something like those stuff on WWETV, they'll be like "14+ era is back", when really, those stuff are PG. People just think PG means disney like stuff.

Vince McMahon even said it too..WWE today is more G rated than PG rated.

2011 was a real good year for WWE(2010 as well was great) and first 3-4 months of 2012 were GREAT, but it's really been past 3-4 months(since about after extreme rules) where things have started getting G rated

Yeah, I think just the culture has changed. PG-14 or whatever the TV rating is has become R and PG has become PG-14 and G has become PG and it's quite laughably. Whenever you heard a bleeped curse word in the ol' Attitude Era, you knew shit was serious and it made it more entertaining and believable
