Default Does sex and violence make wrestling more entertaining?

Simple question.

Sex, bra and panties matches, bikini contest, hot lesbian action...

Violence, blood, going through tables ladders and chairs...

These are things that the WWE has strayed away from since the PG era.

My question is whether or not it would improve wrestling, but just in general... do you think that sex and violence makes wrestling more entertaining, and more importantly, does it have a spot in wrestling?

I found wrestling more entertaining when it had more violence, absolutely.

It makes wrestling cooler.

Better than this PG crap.

Yes sex sells violence sells. Who's going to give you more money in the long run for a product they enjoy? Adults and teenagers with cash to blow? Or a bunch of little jimmies who haven't hit puberty yet?

Yes, as silly as that can sound, sex and violence are going to bring in viewers... but you need something else. Violence and sex alone aren't going to be successful. Without a good storyline, charismatic characters and many other things, it will be a flop. If tomorrow, the WWE became TV-14 and a bunch of violence and sex in their program, it would be stupid because the product will still suck and they are going to lose A LOT of money

What it must boil down to, in my opinion, is that being PG is making WWE more money somehow.

Which I don't get. The only thing I can think is that the world is just more PC now, and to keep the show on a major network the stuff they were showing just wasn't going to fly...

Because even if WWE was still showing sex and violence, kids are still gonna watch it anyways lol. So that's the only thing I can think, is that being PG is what is currently worth more money.

I admit though, I defiantly do miss the days of bra and panties matches, and people actually taking bumps and bleeding. A Hell In The Cell match meant somebody was gonna get fucked up back then.

Now it's just so... well dull and boring. Wrestling on its own is boring. A full show of just watching two guys in the ring is boring.

Not for me. I hated the attitude era. Give me good storylines and matches. I dont need a bunch of nude playboy bitches. If om horny ill watch porn or go tur get laid. When I watch wrestling I want wrestling. Blood though can make matches special at times but you dont need to overdo it either.

Wrestling has been traditionally a family friendly entertainment art-form. The Attitude Era was a brief aberration for a product that got its start and often is continued by carnivals and state fairs. The quicker everyone gets that through their heads, the better everyone will be.

With that being said, sex and (gratuitous) violence have a place in wrestling. Their place is when it makes sense for a gimmick or angle that they be there. Some angles really do need to end in someone leaving on a stretcher, but not every angle. Some gimmicks do need the talent to be very sexual/eye-candy, but not all of them.

Feuds that are deeper than just "I want to be considered the best wrestler" or "I want X title" should be more violent. If we are told two people don't just want to be considered better than the other, but seriously, deep down, HATE each other; we should see some blood and gore.

If a wrestler/manager/valet is running around proclaiming themselves "Sexy Boy" or "Shaman of Sexy" or "Sexiest of Sexy"... they probably should be hot. Rated R Superstars need to be horny (or just vulgar in general).

It would be idiotic to not acknowledge that it has created some of craziest temporary pops and "moments". But no wrestling would be truly entertaining without the larger than life characters, the heroes people can root for or relate to.

Also, it's about the demographic that's watching. Despite popular belief, there are a lot of people who don't like sex and gore-type violence (because it would also be stupid to say that wrestling is non-violent). This is proven by the fact that despite the drop-off, WWE has still maintained a relatively healthy rating in the non-gore, non-sex era.

Give us a good storyline. A group of believable characters. Pay-offs. That's all I really care about.

I think there has to be a balance. Yes, there are people who prefer one or the other, but you can't have the same thing all of the time. A little sex and a little bloody violence go a long way to making the product that much more special as a whole.
